Office of the Provost

New Degree Program Forms

Effective in Fall 2018, the school dean must submit the UT Dallas preliminary authority program request to the provost with a rationale before faculty begins preparing the new degree proposal at the baccalaureate, master's, and doctoral levels irrespective of faculty hiring needs. When the UT Dallas Preliminary Authority Request form is submitted, a meeting will be scheduled between the school dean and the provost to discuss the new degree proposal prior to downloading and completing the degree program proposal. The new UT Dallas Preliminary Authority Request form, effective in fall 2022, will assist the Office of Institutional Success and Decision Support (OISDS) to prepare for the submission of preliminary planning requests for all new degree proposals to the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) effective in mid-2023.

Although the associate vice president for institutional success and decision support will assist faculty with the budget section, faculty should be able to determine the appropriate funding codes associated with disciplines at different levels as found in the Formula Funding Codes and Rates matrix for FY2022-23. For additional information about the formula funding and weighting rates, please review the Texas Legislative Budget Board's General Academic Funding in section 26.

Student learning outcomes must be included in these proposals. For additional assistance, contact Dr. Gloria Shenoy, director of academic assessment, in OSIDS--Assessment.
