New programs

A new program is any degree, degree program, or major, currently approved by Academic Council and the Board of Governors, which has not been previously approved by the Quality Council, its predecessors, or any intra-institutional approval processes that previously applied.The final determination of whether a proposed offering constitutes a new program shall rest with the Provost.

New program proposal briefs are subject to quality review under the provincial quality assurance framework, and in accordance with prescribed procedures and documentation requirements (see Ontario Tech's Quality Enhancement Framework for full requirements).

All new academic programs will be subject to periodic review subsequent to their implementation, with the first review occurring within eight years of the start of the program, in accordance with the university's procedures for program reviews.
