In addition to registering the addition on an on-line component to a registered program, the University must seek authorization from the New York State Education Department (NYSED) for other types of changes in the mode of delivery of its curricula.
If a school adds a part-time option to a program previously open only to students who enroll full-time, the University must seek authorization from the NYSED.
When a school creates an executive program in which the instruction is delivered in a different format or on a different schedule from another program in the same field that have already been registered, the NYSED expect a request for a change in registration.
This list is not meant to be complete. Other types of changes may also need to be registered with the NYSED. Schools should, therefore, consult with the Office of the Vice Provost for Academic Programs whenever it wishes to make material changes in the format or mode of delivery of a registered program.
