Program Design & Approval Process

York University’s Quality Assurance Procedures (YUQAP) outline the protocols for the assessment and approval of new programs, review of existing programs, modifications to existing programs and closure of programs.

Some curriculum and academic standards are not included in the YUQAP guidelines but still require approvals at the Faculty and Senate level. Examples include:

  • admission requirements
  • new rubrics
  • program name changes

All program proposals require the appropriate committee approvals both within Schulich and York. For more information about proposal procedures and approvals review the steps below and contact the appropriate program committee secretary or email Schulich Faculty Council if you require further clarification.
