New programs and requests for program or title changes need whatever individual school approvals are required before being officially sent by the Dean's Office of the particular School to the Office of Academic Program Review for review and submission to the New York State Education Department. (However, the Office of Academic Program Review will review drafts at any point during the internal NYU process.) Please submit two copies of final proposals.
Undergraduate proposals may need to be reviewed by the Undergraduate Curriculum Advisory Committee, and proposals for new graduate programs on the master's and doctoral levels also need the approval of the University-wide Graduate Commission before they are officially submitted to the Office of Academic Program Review. Dual degree programs based on existing registered programs do not need such approval. Proposals must have the approval of the particular School before being submitted to the UCAC or Graduate Commission.
The Commission meets three times a year and is chaired by the Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Science. The contact person is Dale Rejtmar (88040). The UCAC meets twice yearly and is chaired by Matthew Santirocco, Senior Vice Provost. The contact person is Ryan Poynter (84429)
Programs involving study abroad will also need approval from the Office of Global Affairs.
After the Office of Academic Program Review reviews a proposal it will be submitted to the State Education Department.
Program: major or curriculum leading to a degree or certificate. The educational requirements of a program must be registered with the New York State Education Department. The program title of a student's declared major appears on his/her transcript.
Concentration: significant sub-area of a program approved by the New York State Education Department. The title of a student's declared concentration appears on his/her transcript.
Dual Degree Program: combined curriculum, typically with a credit-saving component, that is registered with the New York State Education Department and that results in two awarded degrees. The title of a student's declared dual degree program appears on his/her transcript. The student may be registered in both schools at the same time.
Joint Degree Program: combined curriculum that is registered with the New York State Education Department and for which two or more academic units contribute to the educational requirements that lead to one awarded degree.
