Submission Deadlines

All curriculum and catalog revisions need to be submitted in CourseLeaf by the submission deadlines below for implementation in the 2023-2024 academic year and catalog.

Curriculum Submission Deadlines for Implementation in 2023-24 Academic Year and Catalog

Please email the Curriculum Office before beginning work in CourseLeaf as early as possible to discuss your proposal and to review curriculum standards.

As early as possible - spring 2022 or early fall 2022

Schedule meeting with Curriculum Office for planning your curriculum changes.

December 2, 2022*

Submit curriculum proposals in CourseLeaf for all curriculum changes, including new programs and new courses.

Note: New programs must be approved by Academic Affairs in November 2022 before submitting the new program and courses in CourseLeaf by the December 2, 2022 deadline.

March 14, 2023 All curriculum changes must have final approval (second reading) for the fall class schedule publication and student registration.
March 24, 2023

Submit curriculum proposals in CourseLeaf for minor course and program revisions. Minor revisions have a shortened workflow and go through the curriculum office, admissions and records and chair for approval but do not need curriculum committee approval.

Minor course revisions:

  • Content outline field
  • Required materials field
  • Removing a course from the general education list (foundational or discipline studies). Chairs need to submit this change in CourseLeaf.

Minor program revisions:

  • Sample plan field
  • Adding/removing recommended courses in the AAOT focus areas. Ex: adding MTH 231 as a recommended elective under the Mathematics AAOT. The AAOT is a statewide approved degree so the degree requirements would not change.
  • Removing a course from a list of courses in any program. Ex: Removing COMM 111 from a list of courses (COMM 111, COMM 114, COMM 218 or COMM 219).


Proposals falling short of curriculum standards or that are incomplete by the submission date may be returned for submission for the following academic year.

Proposals requesting exceptions to these dates/timelines must be approved by the Vice President of Instruction for Curriculum Committee consideration outside of the dates provided above.
