Process for New Graduate Programs


Graduate Program Approval Process

Any faculty group may develop a proposal for a new graduate degree program. Final curricular approval rests with Coordinating Committee on Graduate Affairs (CCGA) and final administrative approval rests with the UC President. If the proposed degree program includes a degree title that is new to the campus, additional approval is required from the Assembly of the Academic Senate or the Academic Council on behalf of the Assembly(for the title only). The VPAA approval announcement will stipulate the program's effective term.
