Curriculum & Academic Programs
Propose Changes to Graduate Programs
Before proposing any changes, please consult the current University Graduate School Bulletin's "General Requirements" and "Academic Requirements," which provide broad outlines of university-accepted policies. Program changes require formal approval by both the school dean and Graduate Affairs Committee of IUPUI. Examples of such changes include:
- Addition or deletion of degree programs
- Changes to curriculum requirements
- Changes to program tracks or emphases
- Changes to skill or language requirements
- Changes in exam administration or policies
The Membership to Graduate Faculty page details processes for graduate faculty membership, faculty appointments and changes, and endorsements to direct doctoral dissertations.
Bulletin updates are made annually. In September, programs/departments are asked to update their entries using Word documents with tracked changes or other mechanisms to clearly identify updates.
Deadline for submission of updates is usually in November.
Route the updated file to Jody Smith in the University Graduate School, who shares updates with the IUPUI Graduate Office and relevant programs and departments.
