When UAC Approved Changes Can Be Implemented
New Programs & Program Changes: ADHE will determine on a case-by-case basis if program changes require their approval. All new program proposals will require approval from the Board of Trustees and ADHE. Once all necessary approvals are obtained, any new academic programs or changes to existing programs will formally take effect the following academic year. The academic catalog and online degree plans will be updated to correspond with the new academic year.
New Courses & Course Changes: Once all necessary approvals are obtained, any new courses or changes to existing courses may be offered to students during the following academic term. However, such changes will not formally become part of program (major, minor or certificate) requirements until the following academic year. The academic catalog will be updated with approved new courses and course changes at the start of the following academic year.
*As an exception to this rule, course changes that alter how a course is transcripted (see list below) may not be implemented for an academic term students have begun registering for. For example, if the WI designation is removed and second reading approval is obtained in May, the change will not take effect in the course schedule until Spring of the following year. Students who have registered for a future term have made their decisions based on how the course was listed at the time of registration. Implementation of changes after registration can impact graduation requirements.
- WI Designation
- Course Prefix
- Course Number (Lower/Upper Division)
- Course Title
- Course Credit Hours
Institutional Degree Requirements: Once all necessary approvals are obtained, any institutional degree requirements (e.g., general education, math, foreign language, etc.) will formally take effect the following academic year. The academic catalog will be updated to correspond with the new academic year.
