To revise an existing course in your department, if your department chair is in agreement, you will need to complete a Course Revision Request by logging into Curriculog
and selecting the Start a new proposal link
to initiate the approval process. If the revision to the course content is extensive, you may consider requesting a New Course and discontinuing the existing course instead. The reuse of course numbers of discontinued courses is not permitted. If you want to revise your course number, you must select a number that has not been used.
Revised Courses that are part of a program proposal (new/revised concentration, etc.) or courses that have unresolved disputes by other departments, will require review beyond Academic Programs and Services, namely the Committee on Academic Planning and Resources (CAPR) (only if resources are involved), Committee on Instruction and Curriculum (CIC), the Executive Committee of the Academic Senate, the Academic Senate, and the President of the University.
Revised Courses can only take effect in Fall Semester. See the Master Curriculum Calendar
for catalog curriculum deadlines. College deadlines are earlier than those set by Academic Programs and Services
. Always check with your College Curriculum Coordinator for college-specific curriculum submission deadlines.
Process of Approval of a Course Revision Request
Faculty Member and/or Department Chair originates proposal in Curriculog
. Proposal then moves through the approval process as follows:
- Department Chair (if not the originator)
- Dean and/or Associate Dean
- College Curriculum Committee (proposal may require additional Dean/Associate Dean review if significant changes are made at this step)
- Academic Programs and Services (Technical and Articulation Officer Review, and Director, Associate Dean or Dean approval depending on proposal)
- Consultation (Newly approved curriculum reviewed by all Department Chairs and Associate Deans. Colleges/Departments have five working days to review proposals and submit any comments within Curriculog.) If no consultation is requested, proposal proceeds as follows:
- General Education Subcommittee of CIC, if proposal is for General Education, Graduation Requirement, and/or Writing Skills credit
- Writing Skills Subcommittee of CIC, if proposal is for Writing Skills credit
- Committee on Academic Planning and Resources (CAPR), if additional resources are involved
