In October 2015, New Paltz campus governance approved adoption of SUNY's forms for proposing new degree or certificate programs or revising existing degree or certificate programs.
The Curriculum Committee is preparing a new cover sheet and instructions to accompany the SUNY forms. Until a revised cover sheet is available, please continue to use the one linked below ("New or Revised Program Proposal Cover Sheet").
In the meantime, if you are proposing a new major or proposing to revise an existing major, please contact Valerie McAllister (ext. 3379 or firstname.lastname@example.org) for guidance on using the new forms. When proposing revisions, refer to this annotated program-revision form for guidance about the need for SUNY review of your proposal.
Proposing a new minor or revising an existing minor is a local matter; such proposals are not submitted to SUNY. Please continue to use the program proposal forms (cover sheet and narrative outline) linked below. (These, too, are being updated.)
