Curriculum Proposal Timeline for Fall 2013 Registration

Does your academic department have a new course(s) and/or new program that you would like to offer students beginning fall semester 2013? 

Has the department considered removing a course or program from the current Catalog because you have not offered the course on the master schedule for several semesters, or has program demand changed? 

Is the department in the process of considering changes to a course or program, such as: title, description, number, prerequisite, program requirements, etc.? 

If your answer to any of the questions posed is “yes”, then please use the timeline below to guide the development and submission of curriculum proposals to the Curriculum Office for review and approval by the Faculty Senate Curriculum Committee, Faculty Senate, when appropriate, and the Provost and Vice President Academic Services.  Major program revisions and new programs require external review and approval by SUNY and program registration by the New York State Education Department.   TheHYPERLINK "$FILE/SubmissionProcess.pdf" Course/Program Development and Approval Process outlines the review and approval workflow and can be found on the Curriculum Tab/ Procedures/Progress (left column).
