  • New degree/certificate programs
  • Changes to core curriculum requirement
  • Changes in program name/title
  • CIP code changes
  • Program discontinuance
  • Program modifications
  • Changes in delivery format
  • Program merger
  • Degree/certificate designation changes

Academic units should consult with the Office of the Executive Vice Provost on agreements that can include the following: Memorandums of Understanding, Dual degree programs, and Dual enrollment. Consultation is also encouraged for agreements not contained in this list and when the review and approval process is unknown. Email Catherine Amelink, Associate Vice Provost.
