Discontinuing an Existing Graduate Program

Discontinuation of a graduate program requires the submission of hard copies of 3 documents:

  1. A completed Request to Discontinue.
  2. A completed On-Campus Routing Form. Select “Program Discontinuation” and enter the program name in the blank following “Current Degree Program Title.”
  3. The NC State Signature Page, which indicates approval at the various levels of university administration.

The Graduate School must receive hard copies of all 3 documents.

After the discontinuation proposal has been approved, the program will remain active until all enrolled students have completed the program. Once all students have completed the program, the Director of Graduate Programs or Department Head should notify the Graduate School so the program may be officially discontinued.
