Guidelines for Establishing Dual Degree Programs and Transfer Articulation Agreements

dualenrollment

 


Any department/school may initiate a dual degree program by submitting a proposal to each department/school’s committee and their corresponding college committees.

It is recommended that the Office of Academic Affairs (156 Thomas Boyd Hall) be consulted in the developmental stage to help minimize hold ups at later stages of the process.

The proposal should be written on a formal letterhead with space for signatures of the participating colleges’ deans and departmental heads as well as the dates each committee approved the proposal. This letterhead should be addressed to the Executive Vice President and Provost through the FSC&C Committee (and Grad Council if applicable). There should be accompanying information describing the need as well as a detailed semester outline of the dual degree program.

  1. If the proposal is between two institutions, there should be additional space for the president/head’s signature of each institution to show that it has been through the proper routing channels of each institution. There will be a signing ceremony after the proposal has been approved by all parties involved.
  2.  If the partnering institution is outside of the U.S., International Programs must help draft the agreement.

After it has been reviewed and approved by the FSC&C Committee (and Grad Council if applicable), the Office of Academic Affairs (156 Thomas Boyd Hall) will review the proposal and contact the program representative should anything else need to be clarified.

These proposals do not go to the Board of Supervisors or Board of Regents for final approval as these are already existing programs. If the proposal is between units in the University, final approval lies with the Executive Vice President & Provost. If the proposal is between institutions, final approval lies with the heads of each institution.

Entering into a dual degree program with another institution requires prior notification at least six months in advance of implementation of the agreement to SACSCOC. See PS-116 for further information. Subsequent processing may be required by SACSCOC. Contact the Office of Academic Affairs for information regarding the SACS approval process.
