This site is designed to facilitate the work of departments and colleges seeking to initiate, alter, or discontinue academic programs. The varieties of programs included are those, such as degree or major programs, minors, distance learning offerings, or core curriculum courses, that require university-level approval from the Senate Committee on Academic Programs and subsequent approval from or interaction with the Georgia Board of Regents and/or the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Colleges. The following pages include a complete listing of these types of programs as well as proposal formats, review processes, and additional references for each type. A glossary of academic program types and common terms, frequently asked questions, recurring abbreviations and acronyms, and additional policies and resources can also be found on this site.
The Academic Programs Guide is coordinated by the Committee on Academic Programs and the offices of the Vice Provost and the Associate Provost for Institutional Effectiveness.
