If you are submitting a proposal for a new program or major, read the New Program Proposal Guidelines before beginning your proposal. One electronic copy of the program proposal form, budget form, and any associated new or revised course forms must be submitted to the Office of the Provost after approval at the school/college level. New degree program proposals must go before the Program Review Committee, Academic Assembly, the Provost, the Board of Trustees, and the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU) and will be presented at the next available meetings after review by the Office of the Provost. Please see the new program development timeline for a recommended timeline for program development.
Note: proposals for new undergraduate programs will not be received during AY22.
To make a revision to an existing program
Major program revisions involving significant, substantive changes to the program must go before the Program Review Committee, Academic Assembly, and the Provost, and will be presented at the next available meetings.
Proposals to suspend or terminate a program must go before the Program Review Committee, Academic Assembly, the Provost, and the Board of Trustees, and will be presented at the next available meetings after review by the Office of the Provost.
Also use this form when converting a special topics course into a regular course.
Course revisions include changing number of credits; modifying, adding or removing prerequisites; revising the title; revising the description; adding or modifying a course fee; and changing a course number. If the revisions are so substantive as to create a different course, use a Delete a Course form and Create a New Course form.
A miscellaneous change includes such things as changing policies and procedures regarding Admissions criteria and changing policies on probation, dismissal, and progression within the various programs.
