Changing or Adapting a Registered Program

  • Step #1: NOTE: If your change involves renaming a degree program, you must provide input from the Sr. Vice President for Enrollment Management on the impact of a name change on enrollment projections.
  • Step #2: Review changes and adaptations that require State Education Department Approval as described on the NYSED Change or Adapt a Registered Program Form.
  • Step #3: If the only change to a currently registered program is the addition or deletion of courses (less than 33 1/3%), re-registration with NYSED is NOT required. Go directly to the Adding/Deleting Courses directions. You do not need to follow steps 4-10 below.
    • NOTE EXCEPTION: Any change in credit hours to a certificate or advanced certificate requires NYSED approval before the change becomes effective.
  • Step #4: If the only change to a currently registered program is the title, you can complete the NYSED Title Change Request for Registered Programs form and skip steps 5-10 below.
  • Step #5: Please refer to Curricular Action Approval Process Chart to determine which curriculum review body approval is needed for the type of curricular change being proposed.
  • Step #6: Complete the NYSED Change or Adapt a Registered Program Form. For programs listed below, please use the Application to Change or Adapt a Registered Professional Education Program form.

  • Step #7: Make appropriate changes to Table 1 document(s) already on file in the college and forward an updated table 1 document(s) to the Office of the Vice Provost.

  • Step #9: Submit materials with Department and College support letters to next approving body as detailed on the Curricular Action Approval Process Chart. Depending on the curricular action, this is either the ICC/Grad Council or the Vice Provost.
