Review and Approval Process for New Programs
Review and Approval Process Flowchart for New Program outlines the instructions for each stage of the approval process by "program type." Click on each link for a description of the tasks, responsibilities or forms.
This chart does not apply to programs that qualify for expedited review. The Ministry of Advanced Education also defines a new program as: an existing interdisciplinary major for which the majority of the courses are new or are substantially altered to conform to the program's objectives; a joint major if one or more of the fields in the joint major is not already represented by an approved major; revision of a program's major objectives resulting in significant changes; a change in degree designation or credential that may be precedent-setting; and a significant revision of a program that warrants credential renaming.
