Expedited Application

Public institutions seeking new degree programs file expedited applications, which are reviewed by Board of Higher Education staff. Resulting reports and recommendations are then voted upon by the Board of Higher Education. An expedited review of new degree program proposals must be aligned with the mission of an institution and specifically identified as priority programs in a state or community college implementation plan approved by the Board of Higher Education. Expedited applications may be submitted between August 15 and April 15.
