Curricular proposals requiring UNC-GA approval or notification:
On-campus routing of a New Degree, title change and certificates:
If all flows smoothly, degree approval on campus should take approximately one year and degree title changes and certificates slightly less, generally 6 months. 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, completion and submission of Appendices A and C and/or F and G together will allow for a more expedited on-campus routing. Note that Undergraduate Admissions and Registration and Records needs to know by May if new curricula are being added in order to list it and recruit students effectively. Printed and on-line applications are updated once a year in June.
