Curriculum Proposal Forms

Submission deadlines for the 2021-22 curricular cycle:

  1. For new programs requiring RAP approval: the Friday before Spring break. For Spring 2020 this is Feb. 28, 2020.
  2. All other curriculum proposals: the last Friday of the Spring term. For Spring 2020 this is May 8, 2020.

20-21 catalog page change documents (supporting approved curriculum proposals and front section information) were due November 1, 2019. The submission form with instructions was sent to departments in mid-October.

For the 21-22 catalog, we will be using new CIM (Curriculum Inventory Management) system forms. Orientation/training will be offered in late January, at which time the forms will be available for use. The prior forms have been permanently retired as of the end of the fall 2019 semester.
