Forms & Instructions

Curriculum Review

There are several forms for the review process: Course Form (e-Curr), Program Modification Form (Green) Academic Program Forms (CourseDog)  General Education Forms (CourseDog), Writing Course Form (CourseDog). Course Form is used for a new course or changes to a single course. Changes include deletion, change in credit, course number, level (U to UG, etc.), pre-requisites or description, cross-listing, or repeatability. The Program Modification form is used for minor changes to programs, such as adding a course requirement for the major. Level I & II program changes require Board of Regents approval and additional forms (refer to Provost Office instructions).

Editorial Catalog Changes

Editorial changes are made to the catalog via communication with the Registrar's Office and do not require a form or review by a subcommittee. The Associate Registrar sends catalog copy to departments each academic year for review and approval. Editorial changes are made directly on the catalog copy and returned to the Associate Registrar.

Steps for Curriculum review

Prepare a form from the list below and submit the original, and an electronic file to the Faculty Senate Office (program modification, or general education form). Course forms are submitted electronically through e-curr.  The Provost's Office must approve all academic requests (level I and level II) before they are submitted to the Senate Office.
