ACADEMIC PROGRAM PROPOSAL SUBMISSION WINDOWS

2016-2017

 

            Originally, the “window” was defined as the period of time in which a program proposal should be submitted to MHEC so that its transmittal from MHEC to segments will permit the proposal (1) to be out for comment for 30 days prior to the meeting of the BOR Education Policy and Student Life Committee and (2) to not exceed the 60-day review period prior to its formal approval at the next scheduled meeting of the full Board.  This has sometimes resulted in very short windows in which institutions can submit programs.  In order to ease the scheduling difficulties for the institutions, the Committee will review program proposals while they are still out for comment.  

 

            The Committee will make its recommendation based on the merits of each proposal and the criteria stipulated in the regulations concerning mission and resources.  If objections or comments from MHEC or from other institutions are received during the comment period after the EPSLC meeting, the Board would consider those comments and decide whether to defer final action on its Committee’s recommendation while any outstanding issues are addressed.

 

            Institutions are asked to submit proposals within the defined window that opens 60 days prior to the meeting of the Board of Regents Committee of the Whole and closes approximately two weeks prior to the meeting of the Committee on Education Policy and Student Life (to allow for mailing of the proposal to the Committee with the meeting agenda and other related materials).  The windows are listed in the table below.
