Process Maps for Academic Program Development

The process maps are designed to clarify the necessary steps involved in the development of an academic degree program. For further information, see the appendices within the Academic Programs and Units Policy and Procedures Governing Establishment, Disestablishment, and Change policy for detailed formats required for developing undergraduate and graduate degree program proposals. The Universitywide Coordinating Committee on Graduate Affairs (CCGA) handbook guidelines should also be consulted. Note that the campus proposal formats are based on University of California Office of the President (UCOP) and CCGA's guidelines for graduate programs, but are modified to account for specific UC Santa Cruz requirements.
