Course Revision Request

Course Revision Information

To revise an existing course in your department, if your department chair is in agreement, you will need to complete a Course Revision Request in CurriculogClick the "How To Initiate" tab below to learn more.

 

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.
