Academic Program and Organizational Approvals 

The Office of Academic Planning manages academic program approvals at the university level, including the development of new degree and stand-alone certificate programs and changes to existing academic programs and organizations.

Additional Support

If you need help with the initial program approval process at your local level, contact your Provost's Office.

For questions about the university level process, contact as early as possible to discuss proposal development, review, and universitywide approval requirements. The Office of Academic Planning will advise and coordinate with the appropriate chancellor-led unit contacts to effectively manage the universitywide review of the proposed program.
