Deadlines

Curriculum Proposals may be entered in Curriculog at any time during the year. The earlier the proposal has been entered and approved by the Department Chair, the earlier it can be reviewed by the ICC and implemented.

If your proposal has the potential to create a significant change to University policies or practices or if you are interested in proposing a new program, concentration, or minor, please be sure to talk it over with your Associate Dean and the Vice Provost to gain support before entering/submitting the proposal. 

Catalog Target Dates for 2023/2024 Catalog

Submitting your proposal(s) by or before this date gives you the best chance to make it into the next available catalog, which would potentially allow you to begin offering any new/changed classes as early as Fall 2023. However, due to the nature of the Integrated Curriculum Committee (ICC) and the University Senate review process, we cannot guarantee all proposals will make this catalog deadline. 

Please make sure your proposal is thoroughly complete and that it has been approved by both the Proposal Originator and Department Chair in Curriculog by the "Department Approval Target Due Date" listed below. Once your Department Chair has approved your proposal, it will move on to your college's Associate Dean for review.
