Letter of Notification
The Letter of Notification is completed once the Academic Intake Form has been approved for the program. The Letter of Notification is similar to a concept paper and should be written with a clear and concise vision in mind. The purpose of the Letter of Notification is to:
- Determine if the proposed program is aligned with APSU’s strategic plan and mission
- Evaluate duplicate and comparable programs offered in the region
- Gain insight into the potential success of the program
- Gain understanding as to why the department is proposing this proposal and how it will impact other programs at the university.
This document requires THEC approval prior to the department beginning the New Academic Program Proposal. Please give special attention to feasibility study information as THEC is closely reviewing this information in relation to program sustainability. Additionally, THEC is given particular emphasis to the "how/why" an idea for a new program was initiated as well as substantial emphasis on letter of support from potential employers. These items will be required for submission of the Letter of Notification to THEC.
