To change an existing certificate, credential, or subject matter preparation program in your department, you will first need to discuss your plans with your department chair. If your department chair is in agreement, you will once approval has been obtained, complete a Request for Revision by logging in to Curriculog
and selecting the Start a new proposal link to initiate the approval process.
Revised programs that have unresolved disputes by other departments or substantial revisions as deemed by Academic Programs and Services, will require review beyond Academic Programs and Services, namely the Committee on Academic Planning and Resources (CAPR) (if resources are involved), the Committee on Instruction and Curriculum (CIC), the Executive Committee of the Academic Senate, the Academic Senate, and the President of the University. Revised programs 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.
