Curriculum & Program Approval Process

According to Montana Board of Regents Policy 303.1, the Commissioner of Higher Education (OCHE) and the Board of Regents (BOR) are responsible for monitoring and approving proposals for new offerings and modifications to existing offerings. The Office of the Provost coordinates BOR submission of UM’s curriculum change proposals.

Curriculum proposal submission, routing, and approval takes place on Coursedog. The Curriculum Approval Handbook provides a detailed overview of the process, along with instructions for using Coursedog
