Process for New Self-Supporting Graduate Professional Degree Programs


Self-Supporting Graduate Professional Degree Program Approval Process

Self-Supporting Graduate Programs allow the university to serve non-traditional students above and beyond the resources provided by the state. Any faculty group may develop a proposal for a new self-supporting graduate professional degree program (SSGPDP).  Program approval follows the process for a new graduate degree program. This process includes proposal by CCGA, however a self-supporting fee proposal is necessary in addition to the curricular proposal. The fee proposal must accompany the curricular proposal when it is submitted to the Senate. Campus and systemwide budget office review are required; proposing faculty must consult the VPAA and the Office of Planning and Budget. The VPAA approval announcement will stipulate the program's effective term.
