Curriculum and Program Approval Process

All curriculum and program changes must be submitted to the Faculty Senate each September for review by the Academic Standards and Curricular Review Committee (ASCRC) and Graduate Council. Level I and Level II proposals must continue on to the Board of Regents for approval.

Types of Curriculum/Program proposals:

Course Changes & other slight Program Modifications

Level I Proposals

  • characterized by minimal cost or impact and need to be approved by the Commissioner of Higher Education and conveyed to the Board of Regents

Level II Proposals

  • substantial changes (such as a new major or minor) that require Board of Regents approval

New Centers

  • proposals for new centers are considered Level II Proposals, but they require additional steps for approval

Emeritus proposals

  • emeritus nominations are considered a Level II BOR Proposal, but need only an item template form
