Proposals - Changing or Proposing New Academic Units or Degrees (Category I Proposal Instructions)

Category I proposals are used to designate curricular changes that require approval at the state level (Oregon University System or State Board of Higher Education). These changes include creating new degree or certificate programs, creating new colleges or departments, making major changes to existing programs, delivering an existing program at a new location, renaming an academic program or unit, moving responsibility for an academic program from one unit to another, merging or splitting academic units, or terminating/suspending/reactivating an academic program or unit.

See Category I Proposals for instructions on submitting a proposal, a flow chart of the stages of approval, and a database for tracking and viewing current and past proposals.
