Certificate programs which will require less than 24 credit hours, have a simplified
approval process. In order to begin this process, you will need to complete the Academic
Intake Form (Curriculog Form 2). The Academic Intake form allows Academic Affairs
to determine if there is a need for the program as well as if the certificate will
be a substantive change requiring SACSCOC approval..
Once the Academic Intake form is approved, you are now ready to complete the appropriate
Certificate form. From 16 will be utilized if you are proposing a Graduate level certificate
and Form 17 is utilized for Undergraduate certificate proposals.

Substantive Changes require a prospectus to be submitted to SACSCOC for approval
prior to the program being implemented. For additional information on Substantive
Change, please visit our Substantive Change webpages or attend one of our Substantive Change workshops.
