Units interested in creating new undergraduate programs should notify the Academic Affairs team within the Dean’s Office as early as possible to coordinate the planning and approval process.

To create an undergraduate academic program, a new undergraduate program proposal form must be submitted in the UW Curriculum Management system (UW CM). For a detailed explanation of programs and credentials in UW CM, please refer to the Programs and Credentials quick guide.

To learn more about the undergraduate program proposal process, please refer to these FAQs and to the Undergraduate program proposal process flowchart.

All new undergraduate program proposals (degree, major, option, minor) require a Notice of Proposal (NOP). For details on the NOP process, please refer to this flowchart.
