Change Course Prefix

And this is the content area that gives context and purpose to whatever is being highlighted in this section. You can place whatever element(s) is needed (paragraph, bullet list, link, button, etc.). Just be sure to try and stay as concise and on-brand as possible.

Academic Action

Change the course prefix for a group of courses (e.g. HUM STUD, ENV SCI, BUS ADM, NURSING, etc.).  These prefixes also are known as “Campus Codes”.


Curricular Requirements

No specific curricular requirements. However, because changes to prefixes affect previously offered courses and records as well as current and future courses and records, caution must be taken that changed prefixes do not result in disproportionate repercussions. For this reason, the Registrar’s input and approval is essential.

These changes require the proper alignment of the Curricular Area Codes (CACs) with the new Campus Code.  (For example, the CAC 4970 is associated with the CAC Name “Urban Studies” and the Campus Code “UR RE ST”).

Approval Process

Faculty members, Dean(s), or Provost prepare a brief memo requesting the course prefix of a group of courses be changed.  The memo must clearly indicate the old prefix and the new proposed prefix and must include a rationale for the change.  The proposal is submitted to the appropriate executive committee.

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 and may request revisions. If approved, the proposal is forwarded to the appropriate Dean’s office for review.

The Dean reviews the proposal and may request revisions.  If approved, the proposal is sent to the Registrar.

The registrar reviews the proposal.  If approved, the proposal is forwarded Provost (or designee) for notification to UW System and implementation.  If not approved, the proposal is returned to the Dean with an explanation.

Once approved, the Provost (or designee) submits the change to the CDR Technical Coordinator or the Senior Institutional Planner in the Office of Policy Analysis and Research at University of Wisconsin System for inclusion in the Central Data Request (CDR) and the Transfer Information System (TIS).

Once the changes have been implemented in the CDR and in the TIS, OPAR informs the Registrar that the changes have been made, and the Registrar informs the Provost (or designee), Dean, and Executive Committee chair that the changes have been made.
