1 This is NOT the proposal's submission date.  After submission in Curriculog, a proposal may take 2-3 weeks before arriving at the Provost's Office.  Therefore, and to avoid delays, the originator should monitor the review steps in Curriculog and contact the respective reviewer (chair/program director, dean, and/or provost) if the active proposal sits at a step for more than 7 days (one week) without action.

2Provost's step deadline for new degrees, programs, and certificates.  New degrees, programs, and certificates require review by Academic Planning and Budget Committees prior to Senate consideration, then approval by the Board of Trustees (mid-October) before the SACSCOC's and CHE's submission deadlines of January 1 and February 1 respectively.

3Provost's step deadline for changes of 50% or more to existing programs.

4Provost's step deadline for prerequisite/co-requisite-change, credit-hour change requests, placement scores, and course number.  Changes to a course's co/prerequisites, credit hours, placement scores, and course numbers for the 2022-2023 academic year MUST arrive at the Provost's step by this date. 

5Provost's step deadline for new course proposals.

6Proposals that do not reach the Provost's Office by 2/11/2022 will not be considered.  All 2021-2022 Undergraduate, Graduate, and General Education Curriculog forms will be deactivated and unavailable for use after 2/18/22.  The new 2022-2023 forms will be activated and ready for use no later than July 1, 2022 (once U and G catalogs are finalized and posted).  Faculty can continue to work on curriculum offline during the period of deactivation.  All graduate proposals that are created on 2021-2022 forms, but do not make the last meeting agenda of the Graduate Education Committee (3/3/22) must be deleted and restarted in 2022-2023 using the new forms and the new catalog.

IMPORTANT:

  • For implementation the following fall, new programs and existing programs with 50% or more changes, and certificates require approval by both Faculty Senate and the Board of Trustees by December 1, and then approval by SACSCOC (submission received by SACSCOC by January 1) and CHE (submission by February 1 for new programs). 
  • Program modifications totaling 13 hours or more must be approved by Faculty Senate no later than its 2/1/2022 meeting for implementation the following fall. 
  • Changes for concentrations or programs totaling 12 credits or less may be approved at the last spring Senate meeting for fall implementation of the same calendar year.
