Curriculum Tracking System: CIM

NOTE: As we move through the academic year, we will be looking to next year as it relates to curriculum and the University Academic Catalog for 2021-22.   A deadline for submissions is yet to be determined by Faculty Senate, Graduate Council and the Office of the Provost.  

As you are working on innovating and modifying curriculum, remember that course and program proposals must go  through each step in the approval process and be received by the Office of the Registrar.  Each college has a different workflow process, but that approvals generally need to be made by the department curriculum committee, the department chair or program director, the college curriculum committee, the college dean, the Faculty Senate or Graduate Council, the College of Graduate Studies, and the Office of the Provost. 

Timeline Considerations

Submit your course/program modification in a timely manner:  (1) Course and program proposals, both new proposals and modifications will be for the following academic year, and will need to be full faculty governance approvals before updates will be reflected in the catalog aligned with the effective term. (2) Also, ideally you will want course proposals approved before registration opens for the next term, allowing time for full faculty governance review and approvals.  If students are registered for a course that is under modification (i.e. submitted in the spring term, for fall term changes), offices have to take additional actions, and students will have to deregister and reregister.  Fall registration typically begins mid-March and Spring registration typically opens in mid-October.
