STEP II: Full Proposals for Planned Program Changes (Post-Perspectives)

After a division has added the intent to create a new academic degree program or unit by adding it to the Five-Year Perspectives, changing the name of an existing program, or transferring, consolidating, discontinuing, and disestablishing (TCDD) an existing program to the Five Year Perspectives, further steps for program development will begin. 

UNDERGRADUATE PROGRAMS

If a division or unit is anticipating a new undergraduate program, please follow these steps. There are four instances where undergraduate degree programs, name changes, and TCDD do require UC system approval.

Creating a New Program

Transfer, Consolidation, Disestablishment, Discontinuance (TCDD) of a Program, Unit, or School

Program Name Changes

GRADUATE PROGRAMS

The Graduate Academic Programs Office is a central resource to facilitate the development and approval of new graduate degree programs. Anyone considering creating a new academic program should contact Celina Mojica, the Director of Academic Initiatives, for a preliminary discussion of the process and schedule a meeting with the Graduate Dean.

After consultation with the Graduate Academic Programs Office, divisions will additionally need to contact Marguerite Bonous - Hammarth, from Office of Inclusive Excellence, to develop a diversity plan, a requirement for all new programs and school proposals.

Additionally, please see below resources for program development; post - Perspectives.
