Curriculum Approval Process

  1. Summary

    All curricular approval processes start at the academic unit level by a faculty member submitting a basic data sheet (BDS) that contains the subject matter of the intended process (a course/program revision, approval, or inactivation). The proposal is reviewed and approved by the following faculty committees as appropriate:

    Program Curricular Group
    Regional Campuses Faculty Councils
    Departmental/School Curriculum Committee
    College Curriculum Committee (CCC)
    Educational Policies Council (EPC)
    Faculty Senate

  2. Educational Policies Council

    The Educational Policies Council is concerned with conceptual and structural aspects of long-range academic and curricular planning. The Council consists of two bodies, one responsible for undergraduate education called the Undergraduate Council and the other responsible for graduate education called the Graduate Council.
