For AY 2022-23, the final acceptance of approved School/College Program proposals in Curriculog will be no later than April 24, 2023, at 5 p.m. Any program proposals that have not been forwarded with complete approval signatures in Curriculog to the Graduate Programs Committee by this time will not be considered for the final Graduate Programs Committee meeting for AY2022-23. To allow for sufficient time to review and approval, no exceptions will be made for this hard deadline.

The final technical review for any program proposals conducted by the Graduate College is April 3rd, 2023 at 5 p.m. This is to allow sufficient time for review and feedback on proposals as well as processing through the Schools/Colleges in order to be included in the final Graduate Programs meeting. We cannot guarantee that any proposals submitted after this time will be included in the final Graduate Programs meeting.

The Programs Committee typically meets on the first Tuesday of the month from 1-3 p.m. Submission Deadlines indicate that the proposals have received all approval signatures from the unit and at the Graduate Programs Committee Step in Curriculog. Invitations will be issued to the proposers, as appropriateThough we might be able to approve and create programs courses or program changes in the PeopleSoft system after the deadlines below, we cannot guarantee that proposals submitted past these deadlines will be available for the desired semester.
