A faculty member completes the Edit Course form in CourseLeaf and submits it to a Disciplinary (go to Step 2) or Interdisciplinary Executive Committee (go to Step 3) for review and action.
The Disciplinary Executive Committee reviews the proposal and may request revisions. If approved, the proposal is forwarded to the appropriate Interdisciplinary Executive Committee for review and action.
The Interdisciplinary Executive Committee reviews the proposal. If approved, the proposal is forwarded to the appropriate dean’s office for review and action.
The Dean reviews the course proposal and forwards to the Registrar for review and recommendation.
After review and recommendation or non-recommendation by the Registrar, the Dean has the option of approving the proposal, not approving the proposal or requesting changes to the proposal. If approved, it is sent to the General Education Council (GEC), the Academic Affairs Council (AAC), or Graduate Academic Affairs Council (GAAC), as appropriate. (See Steps 6 and 7)
If the course is intended to be a General Education course, it is submitted to the General Education Council (GEC) for review. If approved, the course is forwarded to the Academic Affairs Council. If it is not approved, it is returned to the Dean.
If it is not a General Education course, go to Step 7.
If the course is an undergraduate course, it is sent to the Academic Affairs Council (AAC). If it is a graduate course, it is sent to the Graduate Academic Affairs Council (GAAC). If approved, the course is sent to the Provost. If not approved, the course is returned to the Dean.
The Provost (or designee) reviews the proposal and supporting documents. If approved, the Dean, initiating Executive Committee Chair, Registrar, and Library are notified that a new course has been approved and the effective date of the action. If not approved, the proposal is returned to the initiating Executive Committee for further development.
