This policy guides advertising of new academic programs that are still undergoing the review and approval process but are at a point when any content in the media would be literally accurate and not capable of being misinterpreted. This policy does not replace the curriculum approval process.

New programs may be advertised as "Submitted to NWCCU for reviewā€¯ after they are approved by the respective groups:

  • New majors after approval by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC)
  • New certificates after approval by the Faculty Senate
  • New minors and options after approval by the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council
  • Existing majors extended to a new location (e.g., Corvallis to Cascades) after approval by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC)
