The Educational Policies Committee (EPC) will refer to program review documents when considering proposals for revisions to a degree. Program review documents provide evidence for the need for curricular changes; Departments that have not completed a program review in over five years may not be able to present adequate rationale or evidence for revisions to existing programs.

Propose your program revisions by using the Program Revision form here . Your proposal must be reviewed by the Department, School Curriculum Committee, School Dean, EPC, Academic Programs, the Senate, the Provost and the President. Send your revision materials to curriculum@sonoma.edu.

Revisions that do not involve changes to the overall structure of a program may be eligible for expedited review, which allows for a condensed proposal and streamlined levels of review (Academic Programs, EPC, Senate). If you have questions regarding eligibility, contact curriculum@sonoma.edu.
