When do I need to submit?

Submit your proposal as early as possible!

What are the benefits of early submission?

Early submissions take full advantage of international and domestic marketing opportunities. For more details see critical dates for curriculum approval.

Do school submission dates differ from central submission dates?

Yes. When developing your proposal, consider internal school approval processes and timings.

Is there flexibility in submitting proposals?

You are invited to submit your proposal any time; however, to guarantee approval for 2023 offerings, proposals have to be received by the latest recommended date.
