UCLA Extension offers to the public approximately 4,500 courses and programs each year. Of these, a significant number will be newly developed and conducted for the first time.

This policy restates the source documents and authorities regarding the approval of new courses offering academic credit. It is for the benefit of Extension's academic staff engaged in their development, and for those whose approval is sought. It provides guidance and defines procedures which will ensure high quality and compliance with Senate regulation and University policy.
