Bring Your Program to Life
Looking to create a new academic program or change an existing one? Before you do so, you’ll need to follow your departmental and college processes and get preapproval from the chair and dean of your academic unit. Next, your unit will need to get approval from the vice chancellor for academic affairs by completing the Preapproval Form [DOCX]. Send the Preapproval Form to Terri Swim, associate vice chancellor for Academic Programs, at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 260-481-6442 to set up an appointment for consultation about the form. Learn more at Approval Process.
You can determine which documents are needed by locating the type of proposal you are creating at our SharePoint site. You will be prompted for your university username and password to access the site. Please note that all new courses required for the program proposal need to have been previously approved. For information on course processing, see Courses.
