Undergraduate Program Proposal Process and Resources

Undergraduate program proposal process

A unit planning to offer a new undergraduate program or make certain substantive changes to an existing undergraduate program must complete the Notice of Proposal review process.

Submitting a proposal

Undergraduate program proposals can now be submitted in the UW Curriculum Management system (UW CM).

Quick Guides

Units may continue to submit paper-based 1503 undergraduate program proposals via email to the UW Curriculum Office through winter quarter 2021. Effective spring quarter 2021, all undergraduate program proposals must be submitted in UW CM (paper-based 1503s already under review may complete the undergraduate program proposal review process outside of UW CM).

Please contact the UW Graduate School in order to create or modify a graduate program.


UW Bothell and UW Tacoma each have their own campus review processes and deadlines. Please consult your campus registrar for more information.
