Getting Your Program Online

Many departments at the University of Memphis are moving their undergraduate and/or graduate programs online to better serve our students. These programs do not replace face-to-face programs but should supplement them to extend the reach of the University of Memphis. Our online courses are expected to provide the same rigor as "on-the-ground" programs.

When your department is ready to consider moving an established on-ground program to online delivery, please contact Roy Bowery, Assistant Dean of Distance Education, at 901-678-2877 or by email at so that we can meet to discuss the project.

If you are considering a new graduate certificate or degree program, it must go through the normal approval processes. However, you should note that the program will be online so that its approval will include online delivery.

The process of getting your program approved involves:

  • Complete and submit to Roy Bowery in Extended Programs (Brister 201) your Online Program Proposal. That form needs to be signed by the department chair, college dean, and Dr. Dan Lattimore, Vice-Provost of Extended Programs. 
  • Submit a program proposal packet to TBR for approval. Please contact Dr. Dan Poje (901-678-2156 or in the Academic Programs Effectiveness Office for more information.
  • Submit a Course Proposal to us for each course to be developed online. Once our office receives this form, we will send to each developer either a Copyright Agreement or a Work for Hire form, if someone other than faculty - such as an adjunct - is developing the course.
  • Acceptance of the course by the home department as well as by the Office of Distance Education. Click here to access a checklist of suggestions for course development.

All forms needed for online program and course development are located at

Once your program is launched, your department may track incoming revenue via the Online Course Fee Estimated Revenue Report, as outlined by the Bursar's Office.
