There are slightly different approval processes for new programs and major modifications to existing programs. New undergraduate and graduate degree programs go through the full approval process, while new graduate diplomas, and major modifications to existing programs, follow an expedited approval process.
A brief outline of the various approval processes are provided in the below noted flowcharts. For more detailed information on the development of new programs and major modifications to existing programs, please consult the QUQAP Guide or contact the Office of the Provost. Information on the development of new graduate degree programs, diplomas and major modifications to existing graduate programs can also be found on the School of Graduate Studies website.
