Preparing the Draft Proposal

Development of the program proposal paperwork may move quickly or slowly, depending upon things such as the complexity of the proposal, the number of new/revised courses associated with the proposal, the degree of interdisciplinary negotiation involved, and other factors.  

Begin by meeting with APLI staff who will:

  • Provide an overview of the process, including checklists, timelines, and relevant forms.
  • Give you access to the Curricular Tracking Sharepoint site (currently only available for GR proposals) where you will have access to:
    • Curricular Tracking Tutorials
    • Curricular Tracking at-a-Glance Status Reports
    • Links to drafts of the appropriate curricular forms for your proposal 
  • Pre-fill documents where possible or provide samples where pre-filling is not possible.
  • Assist the Program Lead in selecting appropriate codes such as SED, HEGIS, and CIP
  • Offer guidance as needed for identifying appropriate/available course numbers.
  • Provide a review for spelling, grammar, formatting, content, and compliance with New Paltz, SUNY, and NYSED expectations.
  • Help you initiate the Internal Review Phase.
