Process for New Hybrid Programs

New Hybrid Program

 Hybrid Degree Program Approval Process

Any faculty group may develop a proposal for a new hybrid degree program. The establishment of a new hybrid degree program mirrors the approval process for a new graduate degree program, with the exception that the UC Compendium specifies that hybrid proposals are reviewed by a joint subcommittee of CEP and GC. Upon campus approval, the proposal is forwarded to the Coordinating Committee on Graduate Affairs (CCGA). CCGA will normally provide pro forma concurrence with the campus action that is simply a new articulation between existing bachelor's and graduate degree programs, unless it judges that there are particular issues that justify a more extended review.  The VPAA approval announcement will stipulate the program's effective term.
