Making Revisions to Existing Courses

Overview

Revisions or discontinuance of existing courses are submitted on a Course Revision Form with Curriculog. Revisions to GE or Graduate courses must be reviewed by the GE Subcommittee or the Graduate Studies Subcommittee respectively.

Make sure you run an Impact Report in Curriculog when you are filling out your course revision form.

Making Substantive Changes

Any proposal for change of title or substantive change of course content will be reviewed as though it were a new course. The Educational Policies Committee (EPC) will review those changes which might result in duplication or proliferation.

Proposals for substantive changes in courses which are used to satisfy requirements for other departments should be discussed with those departments prior to submission of the proposal; the results of those discussions should be noted on the Course Change Form.

Making Changes to Special Topics Courses

A Course Change Form must be submitted each time a Special Topics course is to be offered.

Making Changes to Permanent, Experimental and Extended Education Courses

Discontinuance Existing Courses

Proposals for discontinuation of courses should consider the effect upon the major, minor, General Education, and related departments. Proposals for discontinuance of courses which are used to satisfy requirements in other departments should be discussed with those departments prior to submission of the proposal. The results of those discussions should be noted on the Course Change Form.

Proposals for discontinuance of General Education courses should be reviewed by the General Education Subcommittee before submission to EPC. Courses which have not been offered for two years will be reviewed by the Academic Planning, Assessment, and Resources Committee and EPC and will be inactivated in the Catalog unless departmental justification warrants continued inclusion.
