Approval Process

The chair of the Executive Committee responsible for the minor prepares a proposal to modify requirements following the Edit Program form in CourseLeaf .

If the modification includes courses or other requirements that are outside of the jurisdiction of the Executive Committee, the proposal must be reviewed by the unit(s) impacted by the modifications.  The chair of the initiating faculty committee is responsible for sending (electronically) a complete proposal to the chair of the unit(s) impacted.  As the proposal progresses through the approval process, it must include written documentation from all of the unit(s) consulted.

The proposal may be revised based on the comments received.  When a final proposal is approved by the initiating Executive Committee, the proposal and all supporting documentation is forwarded to the dean for review and approval.

The Dean reviews the proposal and supporting documentation.

After review and recommendation or non-recommendation by the Registrar and the Library, the Dean has the option of approving the proposal, not approving the proposal or requesting changes to the proposal.  Approved proposals and supporting documentation are sent to the Academic Affairs Council. 

The proposal and supporting documentation are reviewed by the Academic Affairs Council.  Following the AAC review, an approved proposal is forwarded to the Provost.  If not approved by the AAC, the proposal is returned to Dean.

The proposed minor modification and supporting documentation is reviewed by the Provost.  If approved by the Provost, the initiating Executive Committee Chair, Dean, Registrar, Library, and SOFAS are notified that the degree program requirements have been modified and the effective date of the change.  If not approved by the Provost, the proposal is returned to the dean.
