The study sample counted (55) faculty members from the College of Educational Sciences at HUin the second semester of the academic year 2021/2022, who were selected purposefully.The researcher developed the study tool, which consisted of five fields, namely, the field of strategic planning for programs, the field of academic programs, the field of faculty members, the field of scientific research, and the field of quality assurance and continuous improvement of the program. The findings showed that the extent of application of quality standards for educational programs in the College of Educational Sciences at HU was high.The results revealed no statistically significant differences in the participants' responses attributable to the gender variable, where there were statistically significant differences in their responses due to the variable academic rank and in favour of the professor and associate professor. Considering these findings, the researcher suggests investigating academic quality with other variables and in other colleges to find the relationship between quality assurance and other variables.
