New Degree Programs
Proposals for new programs can take up to 2 years to implement. (1) First a brief program projection must be approved by the CSU Board of Trustees to be included on the Academic Master Plan (requires department and college approval) and (2) the full degree program proposals must be approved by the campus and the Chancellor's Office. As soon as you know your department is considering proposing a new degree, please contact the Curriculum Analyst to discuss proposal process and timelines.
