Programs - Curriculum Program Development

To describe the process for developing new curriculum programs

Once the need for a new curriculum program offering is recognized, the Vice President for Instructional Services will initiate the NCCCS program approval process and will notify the College’s SACSCOC Accreditation Liaison. The responsibility of the SACSCOC Accreditation Liaison is detailed in Policy II D 2.

The proposal will be developed and presented to the Curriculum Committee for approval. Following this, the proposal will be presented to the following committees, in the order specified, for approval:

  • The Senior Leadership Team
  • Instructional Programs Committee of the Board of Trustees
  • Full Board of Trustees
  • NC State Board of Community Colleges (final approval).

Once approval has been received from the North Carolina Community College System and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges, the program will be offered as indicated in the approved proposal.
