The New Program Proposal form should be used to secure approval for developing all new programs and courses. Use of this form provides a mechanism for the manager to do the necessary program planning and receive the Dean's approval to develop the program before entering the proposal to a specific program planning process.

The Manager of Non-Credit and Professional Development Programs will review completed New Program Proposal forms on a regular basis.

PLANNING STEPS:

The first step in developing a new certificate program is to use this brief planning process to obtain the required approval to proceed. This initial approval process precedes but does not alter the existing curricular review process at the University. The purpose of this step is to ensure that the school and university administration will be supportive of the certificate program if it is approved. To obtain approval for proceeding with the development of a non-credit certificate program, briefly consider the following items: the Program structure and content, Marketing, Consultation, Collaboration, Timeline, Delivery methodologies, and Resources.
