Normally, these modifications ought to be submitted using the Information Requirements for Proposals to Modify Programs. In some instances, however, the modification ought to be submitted as a proposal for a new program given the extent of the change; for example, normally, if the proposal is to introduce a new major or stream within an existing degree program, the proposal ought to be submitted following the Information Requirements for Proposals for New Programs.
