When the proposal has been approved by UEC or GSC, a budget submission must be made to the Senate Budget Committee. The templates Senate Budget requires are below.
If a proposed program is drawing from courses offered by another Faculty (for instance, an Arts program includes Business courses), the program developer is responsible for working with other affected department or faculty, and with Institutional Research, to analyse the affected courses’ current utilization and capacity to serve additional students. Utilization and capacity analysis will take into account, over a 3-5 year period: fill rate, course rotation, and the declared programs of students enrolled in the courses. Program students from any faculty will be given priority over students who have not declared or been admitted to a program (i.e., Arts or Science Studies students may be displaced from a course which is included in a new program). If it is established that added capacity will be required, provisions for it will be included in the budget analysis.
Begin by filling out Template A (most of the information required here is already in your proposal, particularly in section 8: Program Resources). Submit it to the Program Development Coordinator for review. The PDO will send Template A to the Budgets & Financial Planning Office, and a draft of Template B will be returned to the program developer and PDO. You will then meet with the Dean and the Program Development Coordinator to discuss Template B before it is submitted to the Senate Budget Committee.
Budget Analysis Template Part A: this is filled out by developers
