  2. Definition of Terms
    Subprograms are not defined at the system level.
  3. Requisite Conditions of Approval
    An option, concentration, special emphasis or minor may be approved under the authority delegated by this executive order only where adequate faculty, physical facilities, and library holdings sufficient to establish and maintain that subprogram already exist or where such support can reasonably be expected to become available.
  4. Required Chancellor's Office Notification
    • 4.1 There is no requirement to notify the Chancellor's Office of new, modified or discontinued minors.
    • 4.2 Prior to actual implementation of any option, concentration or special emphasis approved under this delegation, the Chancellor's Office Department of Academic Programs and Policy shall receive e-mail notification (to APP@calstate.edu), including:

      1. the exact title of the new option, concentration or special emphasis;
      2. a list of courses constituting that new subprogram;
      3. the CSU degree program code (formerly called "HEGIS") that students will use to apply to the program;
      4. the complete degree designation and title of the degree program housing the new subprogram (e.g. Bachelor of Science in Biology with a Concentration in Biochemistry); and
      5. documentation that all campus-required curricular approvals are in place.
    • 4.3 Prior to actual implementation of any option, concentration or special emphasis approved under this delegation, the campus shall enter that new sub-program into the CSU Degrees Database and activate the "Notify" button.
