Creating New Undergraduate Degrees and Programs

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).

To learn more about the undergraduate program proposal process, please review:

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

Creating New Graduate Degrees and Programs

The Graduate School’s Office of Academic Affairs and Planning coordinates the review of new graduate program proposals. See their “Creating/Modifying Programs” page for detailed guidelines.
