The Office of the Provost will then notify the proposal sponsor and the Office of Academic Program Review when a proposal is approved to move forward in the State review process. If any concerns with proposals are raised, the proposal will be referred to the sponsor for possible revision and Provostial reconsideration.

The Graduate Commission reviews all new master's and doctoral program proposals to ensure that each of NYU's schools with graduate components maintains comparable standards of work for the degrees and that there is no curricular overlap between or among the schools. The Commission is composed of one dean, one faculty member, and one student representative from each school with a graduate program.
