New Plan Approval Requests

Request for a new degree or certificate plan is initiated through this process. Colleges complete the identified questions describing all aspects of the requested plan. After filling out all required data, and uploading the required supporting documentation, the college VPI then submits the request. After submittal, the application materials will be reviewed to determine the next steps in the approval process.

Modify an Existing Plan

Request to modify an existing degree or certificate plan is initiated through this process. Colleges complete the identified questions and update all changes to the existing plan. After completing the changes and uploading the required supporting documentation, the college VPI then submits the request. After submittal, the application materials will be reviewed to determine the next steps in the approval process.

Changes to plan title, curriculum, number of credits, or similar modifications must be approved by the State Board prior to the changes being active. The college must provide required information to support the review and approval process. A request that modifies the number of credits and changes the degree or certificate type (i.e., C20, C45) requires a new plan approval request.

Apply or Remove a Last Admit Term (LAT)

Request to apply or remove a last admit term to an existing degree or certificate plan is initiated through this process. Colleges complete the identified questions and update all changes to the existing plan. After completing the changes and uploading the required supporting documentation, the college VPI then submits the request. After submittal, the application materials will be reviewed to determine the next steps in the approval process.

Approved plans that have a last admit term remain on the college's inventory for three years (unless teach-out process is completed prior to the three years). If a program is not reinstated to active status during the three-year period, it will be removed from the respective college's inventory. A college may reinstate a program to active status, removing the last admit term, within the three year time limitation.
