Program Submission Information

For new programs or programs with substantial changes, a new program proposal must be completed and submitted to the Chancellor’s Office.  The narrative, labor market information (for CTE) and supporting data must be sent electronically to Cheryl Kearse in the Office of Instructional Services.  All information is then uploaded into the Curriculum Inventory, the Chancellor’s Office clearinghouse for courses and programs.

Check this area often as it will be updated to include information to assist you with the preparation of these documents.
