The Curriculum Standards document has the following purpose:

The Curriculum Standards documentation provides COCC faculty and staff with guidelines and definitions to support the approval, revision, and communication of credit curriculum. The Standards establish a COCC process and criteria that align with and support those described by Oregon Administrative Rules and the Oregon Office of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD) and Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC) in addition to the regional accrediting agency Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU). It is primary resource for the Curriculum Committee members who review and approve curriculum, and it assists academic departments, support departments, new employees, and others who need to understand our standards in order to support students.


The Curriculum Standards are maintained by the department of Assessment and Curriculum, shall be reviewed annually by the curriculum Committee and changes shall be communicated to the College annually through the Academic Affairs Committee.
