Due to the continued spread of the COVID-19 virus and the public health recommendations that come with it, Arizona State University will be celebrating with its graduates in the 2020 Spring commencement in a virtual, online ceremony. The format may be different, but our enthusiasm for celebration has never been more inspired and we encourage you to join us in honoring ASU graduate and undergraduate students the week of May 11. Planning is underway. For more details, please check back here for updates and additional information about online activities. Commencement FAQ page

Graduate Curriculum Development

Charged with approving curriculum and enforcing policies and procedures, the Graduate College is the designated authority on graduate education policies, curricula quality, and best practices, guiding students, faculty and staff to drive program progress and student success.

The Graduate College assists units with curriculum development, maintains graduate program archives, coordinates the activities of the University Graduate Council, and serves as a resource for units regarding policy and procedures governing graduate education at ASU.

The Provost’s office also maintains a curriculum development website with links to important resources such as the curriculum workflow calendar, CAPC, University Senate meeting dates, academic plan and submission information. All proposals and supporting documents should be submitted formally to curriculumplanning@asu.edu by the college dean’s office.


There are multiple administrative units and personnel involved in graduate academic program development. You are encouraged to contact Graduate College representatives in the initial curricular planning stages.
