COURSE DEVELOPMENT, REVISION, AND DELETION

 

Instructions for the completion of these forms are included in the documents. All documents should be completed and submitted electronically to the Coordinator for Curriculum Management. Hard copies should be generated, signed by all necessary parties, and submitted to the Coordinator for Curriculum Management as soon thereafter as possible.

Please note that a curriculum proposal is NOT complete until both electronic AND hard copies have been received, in their entirety, including all necessary signatures. No proposal will be scheduled for UCC review until it has been fully completed and received.

FOR COURSE DELETIONS: Complete the Course Deletion Form (see: below) and submit both electronically and via hard copy, following completion of all necessary curriculum review procedures at the department and unit levels. The request will be reviewed by the UCC Chair and approved as soon as possible.

FOR NEW COURSES: Complete the Course Proposal Form (see: below) and submit both electronically and via hard copy, following completion of all necessary curriculum review procedures at the department and unit levels. Ensure that the new course is not merely a variation of an existing course, as such cases fall under the category of course revisions. Once received in its entirety the proposal(s) will be scheduled for review by the Graduate Council (in the case of courses numbered 6000 and above), and subsequently, for review by the UCC.

REVISED (January 2012): Any new course proposal associated with a new degree program must list the same effective term as that program (e.g.: if a new BA is being proposed for Fall 2015 implementation, all new course requests associated with that BA must also list a Fall 2015 effective term).

FOR COURSE REVISIONS: Complete the Course Proposal Form (see: below) and submit both electronically and via hard copy, following completion of all necessary curriculum review procedures at the department and unit levels. Ensure that the information entered in the form reflects the revisions being requested. In order for the reviewing committees to compare the course as it exists currently to the proposed version, attach a syllabus for the existing course as a separate document. Once received in its entirety the proposal(s) will be scheduled for review by the Graduate Council (in the case of courses numbered 6000 and above), and/or for review by the UCC.

ADDITIONAL NOTES

All files (i.e.: Course Proposal/Deletion Forms and syllabi for course revisions) MUST be submitted in an editable format. Course Proposal/Deletion Forms should remain in editable .pdf format, and syllabi should be submitted as Microsoft Word documents with NO tracked changes or permission restrictions. Any files received that do not adhere to these guidelines will be returned to the originating unit, thus delaying the proposal's review by the relevant curriculum committee(s).

Hard copies of Signature Forms MUST be originals and contain actual signatures, as opposed to scanned copies. ALL required signatures must be obtained (print "Not Applicable" in the case of a unit that does not have individual departments). Any Signature Form that does not adhere to these guidelines will be returned to the originating unit, thus delaying the proposal's review by the relevant curriculum committee(s).

Every effort is made to schedule proposals in the order that they are received, however, circumstances occasionally dictate a change to this procedure. It is advised that all course proposals be submitted as early in the academic year as possible, in order to ensure inclusion in the Bulletin as well as to ensure that the course is eligible to teach during the term that your unit plans to offer it.
