Policies and Procedures for Academic Degree Program Approval

These policies and procedures are intended to provide a systematic process for planning and initiating new academic programs.

           Details regarding program proposals and procedures for review are contained in the Undergraduate and Graduate Curriculum Development and Change Policies and Procedures Manuals which are available on the university's web site at https://www.odu.edu/acadaffairs/faculty-resources or from the vice provost for academic affairs.
