New Graduate Degree Programs

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.

New Graduate Certificate Programs

Academic units submit a proposal, which will be sent by the Graduate School to academic stakeholders from the three UW campuses. The proposal will be revised as needed, taking into account any observations that stakeholders have submitted during the comment periods. New certificate programs require Graduate School review, followed by consideration and approval by UWT Academic Policy and Curriculum Committee, and approval of the UWT Executive Associate Vice Chancellor.  Proposals are forwarded to the UW Board of Regents for final approval.
