Proposing a New or Revised Course
The Curriculum Approval Committee reviews course proposals at a meeting each quarter. The committee provides feedback on proposals when changes are needed prior to approval. Courses can be offered as soon as they are approved. Courses may be approved provisionally when the committee's timelines cannot accommodate a program's needs; however, all normally required documentation must be provided.
- Talk to your division dean about your idea, especially if you're planning a new course
- Check the course catalog for similar existing courses
- For course revisions, request a copy of the existing course outline from Mark Baumann at Siegal Center
- Use the detailed Course Establishment Instructions as a guide for the entire process
