Overview

The program recommendation process outlined by the California Community College Chancellor’s Office (CCCCO) requires that all requests to add new programs or certificates to a college’s inventory of occupational programs include a recommendation from the Regional Consortium.

The process is intended to inform regional discussion and foster collaboration with the goal of developing and advancing career education programs that address the local workforce and student needs. 

Submission Process

If you are a faculty or staff member who has been tasked with developing a new CTE certificate or degree program, you will need to secure BACCC recommendation before you submit your program approval documents to the State Chancellor’s Office for formal approval (chaptering).
