Significant Change in Academic Programs

Approved: 1/14/2005 Revised: 05/17/2011

A "significant academic program change" is any change that affects another program or department, or service courses to any program, certificate or degree. It includes new and revised certificates, degrees and degree requirements and changes to course or program credit if these changes affect other certificates, Associate of Applied Science degrees, AA Associate of Arts - Oregon Transfer and Associate of Science general education or discipline studies requirements. Departments that intend to present a new certificate or degree or any significant program change should begin the process of doing diligence early so that formal review can begin in the fall. See the Reference Significant Change Form for further details.
