Proposals for new graduate degrees must undergo an external review prior to final approval by the Higher Education Coordinating Commission. The department or program proposing the new degree bears the cost of the review. The review committee typically consists of three disciplinary peers external to OSU, who review the new program proposal and all supporting documents, conduct a site visit (see the HECC guidelines for when virtual or hybrid reviews are allowed), and submit a report on the viability of the program.
