Graduate Concentration Proposals

This guidance describes the steps required to launch a Graduate Concentration proposal originating from Purdue West Lafayette for University approvals. Please see Purdue Fort Wayne or Purdue Northwest guidance for proposals originating from these campuses, or reach out to campus contacts.

A Graduate Concentration proposal provides focus to an existing degree or major. A concentration is an internal proposal. Students are admitted to degree programs, not concentrations. Concentrations do not use Classification of Instructional Program (CIP) codes. Earned concentrations are noted on student transcripts. Lists of existing concentrations can be found on the Office of the Registrar Active Curriculum Reports website.

Proposals are reviewed on a rolling basis once they enter the workflow. Time to complete indicates the typical completion timeframe from proposal launch to completion in workflow. Some proposals may complete faster, while others may need more time based on when they are launched.
