Guidelines for Proposals for New Graduate Degree Programs

The UWT Office of Academic Affairs, with support from the UW Graduate School's Office of Academic Affairs and Planning, coordinates the review of new graduate degree proposals. The chart below was updated September 2019. 



The approval process for new graduate degree programs includes submission of two documents: the Planning Notice of Intent (PNOI) and the Full Program Proposal.

New degree programs require Graduate School review, including evaluation by external reviewers, followed by consideration and approval by UWT Academic Policy and Curriculum Committee. Proposals are forwarded to the UW Board of Regents for final approval.
