Curricular proposals requiring UNC-GA approval or notification:
On-campus routing of a New Degree/Title Change:
If all flows smoothly, degree approval on campus should take approximately one year and degree title changes slightly less. Most of the NC State committees in the approval routing meet weekly, bi-weekly or monthly. The longest interval of delay is with the Board of Trustees which meets twice during a term (Sept, Nov, Feb, Apr) and once in the summer (July). Movement between steps may also be delayed if the department is requested to resubmit revisions at any stage (i.e the cleaner the document is when it leaves the department, the quicker the process goes.) For a new degree, submitting Appendices A and C and/or F and G together expedites the time to final approval.
A new degree, title change or certificate follows the routing as indicated on the routing form and as listed below. The routing form should be submitted with the curriculum package.
For a New Degree, the time of year the proposal is submitted for approval routing affects the timeliness to implementation.
