Program Approval Process

Program proposals should be submitted through the CourseLeaf Program Management portal. A program proposal is required to maintain an accurate record of the University’s program offerings and their requirements and to list them in bulletins and student transcripts. Before changes or additions to the academic curriculum are instituted or announced, they must be approved by the:

  • Program/Department and School
  • Academic Editor
  • Associate Provost for Academic Planning and Assessment

Program proposals and all required supporting documents must be completed and submitted early enough to allow for sufficient review and approval by the program or department, the school, the Associate Provost for Academic Planning and Assessment, and other pertinent departments (where applicable)  prior to the requested effective semester. Retroactive approvals will not be granted.  New programs or revisions cannot be publicized to current or prospective students until the program or revisions have been approved. The Office of Academic Planning and Assessment will make every effort to promptly review and provide feedback on completed submissions that meet the submission requirements.

For additional information about program approvals, contact:

Cheryl Beil, Associate Provost for Academic Planning and Assessment, cbeil@gwu.edu, 202-994-6712
