Requesting Administrative Change Forms

THECB Notification Form for Administrative Change (Updated 4/2021) or the appropriate form(s) as noted for the requested change

Administrative changes include the creation of new administrative units (such as departments or new schools) as well as changes to existing administrative units, such as a consolidation of existing units, moving degree programs into another unit, closing existing degree programs, or offering an degree program in a different delivery modality (e.g., hybrid or online modality). These administrative change requests must be submitted using the THECB Notification Form for Administrative Changes (Updated 4/2021) or the specific Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) form(s) as notated for the requested administrative change. Some of these types of changes no longer require approval by The UT System Office of Academic Affairs (OAA) but still require THECB approval. Other administrative changes continue to require approval from both The UT System OAA and THECB.

Additionally, some of these administrative changes, for example, adding and/or closing a delivery method/modality, may require Southern Association of Colleges Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC) notification and/or approval per its Substantive Change Policy and Procedures.

For assistance with any administrative change request, please contact Dr. Serenity Rose King, associate vice president for institutional success and decision support via email or by telephone at 972.883.6749.
