NYSED Application for Registration of a New Program Form FAQs
Q: Who chooses and approves the HEGIS Code for new programs?
A: Provide your best estimate for an appropriate HEGIS Code. You may use the NYSED list of HEGIS Codes for guidance.
Q: The Academic Affairs website says to submit the new course outlines as a Word doc, but the State form says they should be a PDF. Which one should I send?
A: Please send new course outlines to the Office of the Provost as a word document. Our office will convert to a PDF document when it is ready to be submitted to NYSED.
Q: Can I attach the Outcomes Assessment Plan separately? It doesn’t look like it can be cut and pasted into the form.
A: You can attach the assessment plan. Label it as Attachment I. In the appropriate spot on the NYSED Form reference “SEE ATTACHMENT I”
Q: Can other documents be attached to the NYSED Application for Registration of a New Degree Program form?
A: Yes, other attachments may be added. Please number them sequentially and indicate on the Application Form in the section requiring the attachment to “SEE ATTACHMENT #”.
Q: Do I have to rekey/retype all the information into Table 1a and the Faculty tables 2-4? I noticed that the cut and paste doesn’t move formatting like tables.
A: You can cut and paste, however, you may have to do 1 line at a time. Paste your responses into the grayed out portion of the table for each entry.
