New Programs

The next window for submission of new programs closes September 24th, 2021 with an anticipated active date of Spring 2023. You have found the right place if you want to:

  • Propose a NEW program (For all types, except ADTs, you must begin with a New Program Initiation Form
    • AA, AS, or Certificate (low unit or traditional)
    • Non-Credit Certificate 
    • Occupational Skills Award (OSA)

All substantial changes will require that the program follow the guidelines for a NEW program of the same type. Substantial changes include:

  • The goals and objectives of the program are substantially changed
  • TOP code change at the discipline level (e.g.; biological sciences (04) to health (12)
  • The job categories for which program completers qualify have substantially changed
  • The baccalaureate major to which students typically transfer has changed

Questions should be directed to your division's Curriculum Chair. Chairs are listed on the right side of the webpage under the menu items.
