Established Status Proposal for Certificates

When the certificate is ready to move from provisional to established (2-4 years), the unit will submit the Request for Established Status to OVPAE under the appropriate cover memo. The submission will be reviewed by a committee which will determine whether to move forward to the Provost and President for approval. Please be mindful of the various deadlines that may impact the review, approval, and implementation process.
