New and Non-Traditional Programs

In light of our changing needs and resources, therefore, all programs falling out of the normal delivery of academic course work and involving external funding or non-tuition student support, must conform to these procedures. The person developing the program must:

1. Develop a preliminary statement of scope and purpose with a schedule and trial budget. The budget must show both revenue and expense and ALL costs. Budgets must be by fiscal year and if institutional resources are required, the source must be indicated.

2. Discuss the proposal with the appropriate Dean or in some cases the Vice President for Academic Affairs.

3. Have the program reviewed by the Director of Continuing Education and, if appropriate, by the Director of International Affairs. Such review is primarily to avoid misunderstandings involving CEUís, part-time personal service money, outside contracts or other restrictive aspects of state regulations, and to identify sources of administrative support..

4. After the proposal has been initially reviewed, return it to the Dean or Vice President for review or revision and signature approval. Next, submit the proposal to the Assistant Dean of Continuing Education or Director of International Affairs for final review.

5. Supervise your accounts carefully. Project directors and, in turn, deans or directors are totally responsible for contract compliance. Budget changes and shifts in program must be reported promptly. The Director of Continuing Education or the Director of International Affairs will assist in the supervision of the grant once received.

The University cannot accept responsibility for projects which do not follow these guidelines.
