The undergraduate and graduate bulletins are official statements of academic program policy. The Schedule of Classes is an extension of the bulletins. The steps required in processing curricular and program proposals, including the involvement of faculty, administrative officers, and councils and committees, are prescribed by the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
The most common undergraduate and graduate curricular proposals relate to the following areas:
a. Changes to Courses;
b. Changes to Majors and Concentration Areas;
c. Changes to Undergraduate College Degree Requirements;
d. Changes to Graduate Degree Requirements;
e. Changes to University Requirements for Undergraduate Degrees;
f. Changes to Academic Regulations;
g. Changes to Admissions Policies;
h. Requests for New Programs.
Curriculum development and revisions will be reflected in the appropriate undergraduate and graduate bulletins only after they are approved in accordance with the procedures prescribed by the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs. The guidelines and procedures are maintained by the Provost/Vice President for Academic Affairs who is also responsible for evaluating the effectiveness of such procedures.
