Originators/proposal launchers: Please monitor your proposals in Curriculog to ensure they move through the review steps on time, and contact the respective reviewer (chair/program director, dean, and provost) if/when the proposal sits idle for more than 7 days.

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.  It is highly recommended that Program initiators/launchers coordinate with the chairs of the Academic Planning and Budget Committees prior to and during the Executive Review step to facilitate timely committee review after submission to Curriculog.

3Provost's step deadline for changes of 50% or more to existing programs to ensure SACSCOC submission deadline by January 1.

4Provost's step deadline for prerequisite/co-requisite-change, credit-hour change requests, placement scores, and course number change for implementation the following fall.   

5Provost's step deadline for new course proposals.

6Proposals that do not reach the Provost's Office by 2/10/2023 will not be considered.  All 2022-2023 Undergraduate, Graduate, and General Education Curriculog forms will be deactivated and unavailable for use after 3/3/23.  The new 2023-2024 forms will be activated and ready for use no later than July 1, 2023 (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 2022-2023 forms, but do not make the last meeting agenda of the Committee on Graduate Education (3/2/23) must be deleted and restarted in 2023-2024 using the new forms and the new catalog.

IMPORTANT:

  • Changes for programs totaling less than 24% of the total program credits may be approved at the last spring Senate meeting for fall implementation of the same calendar year.
