Existing Degree: A title change for an existing degree (plan) requires approval through the university level and UNC-GA. It may take 6-12 months for approval depending on the date of submission to the OUCC.
Concentration: Revision of a concentration (sub-plan) title requires UCCC and Provost approval but does not require approval routing to UNC-GA.
In most cases, a new degree audit and SIS code will be created to establish and implement the new title for the plan or sub-plan.
Note: If you change a concentration (sub-plan) or degree (plan) title and leave the SIS code as is, the current students will graduate under the NEW title, therefore a new code should be created for the new title and the department/college can then move students who want to graduate with the new title into the new code/degree audit.
Curriculum Action Memorandum
A memo addressed to the University Courses and Curricula Committee (UCCC) to include:
Note: If the curriculum is a jointly administered between two or more colleges, the signatures of the other College(s) must be represented on the signature page.
Upon completion of the above documentation and signature of the Head of the department or program, the action should be submitted to your College Liaison for approval by the College Course and Curriculum Committee and Dean. Upon approval at the college level, the College Liaison will send the action to the Office of Undergraduate Courses and Curricula (OUCC) in DASA for placement on the UCCC agenda.
If approved by UCCC, the UCCC Chair and the Dean for Academic Programs & Services (APS) signs. If the action is approved pending revision, the UCCC Chair will sign and the UCCC representative from your college will contact the appropriate person(s) to submit the needed revision. Once the revision is received by the OUCC, the action will be signed by the Dean for APS.
Approval Process for a Degree (Plan) Title Change: Once the action is signed by the Dean for APS, the action will move through the on-campus approval process as indicated on the Routing Form.
Approval Process for a Concentration (Sub-Plan) Title Change: Once the action is signed by the Dean for APS, the action will move to Registration and Records for implementation.
