Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost

Academic Forms

As the University continues to expand its academic programs in response to the President's Strategic Plan, academic officials will work in concert with Assistant Provost Serenity King to prepare proposals for new degree and certificate programs and requests for approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), The University of Texas System (UT System), and the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB).

For assistance with new degree program proposals, new certificate proposals, new departments requests, or responses to the Low Producing Degree Program report, please contact Assistant Provost Serenity King via email or by phone at 972.883.6749.

Reporting the Various Types of Substantive Changes

New programs and some changes to existing programs may require prior approval from the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, our primary accrediting agency. In such cases, this prospectus must be completed. Some changes may require only prior notification rather than prior approval. Please refer to the approval matrix for substantive change procedures. You will also want to review the SACSCOC Policy on Substantive Changes for complete details.
