Approval Process

A faculty member completes the Propose New 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.

If the course is intended to be a General Education course, it is submitted to the General Education Council (GEC) for review.  The GEC’s recommendation is returned to the Dean for action.

The Dean reviews the course proposal and forwards to the Registrar and the Library for review and recommendation.

After review and recommendation or non-recommendation by the Registrar and the Library, the Dean reviews the course.  If the course has been approved by the GEC, it may be approved as a General Education course.  If the course has not been approved by the GEC, it may not be approved as a General Education course, but it may be approved as a regular course.

If approved by the Dean, the initiating Executive Committee Chair, Registrar, and Library are notified that an X-Course has been approved and the effective date of the action.  If not approved, the proposal is returned to the Unit for further development.
