MOU Process for offering existing OSU approved programs at OSU-Cascades

APAA - Academic Programs

Welcome! APAA facilities and coordinates the preparation, oversight, and implementation of academic programs and courses.

Each OSU department is responsible for the quality and health of its programs that are offered at OSU-Cascades. In order to make an existing degree or certificate program available at OSU Cascades, a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) is required.

  • A Proposal Guide outlines the information required to create an MOU. Approval by the department's Corvallis unit head and Dean and the Cascades-based Program Leader, Dean and Vice President is indicated on the MOU signature page. The proposal should be developed with the faculty of both campuses serving an advisory role.
  • A library resource review must be attached to the MOU. Contact Kate Gronemyer at 541-322-3163, the OSU Librarian at OSU-Cascades.
  • The MOU proposal should be submitted to the Office of Academic Programs, Assessment and Accreditation for review and coordination through the curricular review process. Please contact Gary Beach at 541-737-2815.
  • It the proposal is a graduate program, the proposal will be fowarded to the Graduate Council and the Dean of the Graduate School for approval.
  • All MOU's require approval by the Curriculum Council.
The review is to ensure:
  • Strength, viability, consistency of assessment, and quality;
  • Adequacy of resources;
  • Consistency with OSU policies and procedures.

The Office of Academic Programs, Assessment and Accreditation supports curricular proposal processes. Feel free to contact us at 541-737-7463 if you need help during the proposal process.
