Once demand for the online program has been validated, the Internal Approval Step commences. During this phase, financial model, fee tables, and curriculum for the program are created and distributed for review by Purdue Online and the Graduate School (for graduate certificates and graduate degrees). Once approved, if the program is a credit offering, it moves onto the External Approval Step. If the program is a non-credit offering, it moves on to the Execution and Implementation Step.
