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 departments to do the necessary program planning and receive the appropriate administrative approvals to develop the program before entering the proposal into the Extended Education Program Planning process.
The Director of Non-Credit Programs will review completed New Program Proposal forms on a regular basis.
The first step in developing a new certificate program is to use this brief planning process to obtain the required approvals 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. If more than one department is involved in the program, then the chairs, curriculum committee chair for the department/school, and deans of all involved departments must approve the new program before it is submitted to the School of Extended and International Education.
When all required approvals (department Chair, curriculum committee chair, and Dean) are obtained on the "Signature Page" (below) a full program proposal may be developed and submitted to the Director of Non-Credit/Professional Development Programs.
