Curriculum Change Guidelines and Resources

Requests to revise graduate programs can be made to The Graduate School. Depending on the nature of the revisions, different university and UNC system state processes may be involved in approving and implementing the changes.

The Administrative Board of The Graduate School and its Academic Policy Committee (APC) oversee academic programs and policies in graduate education on campus. Generally proposals can be heard in one of six meetings in either the fall or spring semesters. Graduate School staff are also authorized to assist with curricular revisions and route approvals.
