To find existing programs:
The UNC Academic Program Inventory (API) is a searchable database known as the Program & Degree Finder and includes all approved degree programs in the UNC System and their approved modes of delivery (online, off-campus, etc.)
To see programs being planned across the UNC System:
The Program Request Portal (PREP) displays the status of all degree programs and modes of delivery under active review by the UNC System Office.
UNC System institutions proposing new degree programs (as of February 1, 2016):
UNC Regulation 400.1.1[R] governs the approval processes for all new baccalaureate, master’s and doctoral degree programs in the UNC System. Use the following forms for new degree program requests in PREP:
- Request to Deliver (add online or site-based distance education or off-campus delivery)
- Request to Discontinue
Requests to change a degree program title, CIP code, or degree awarded can be accomplished through the API without a standard form.
