New Spring 2021 Course Proposals
If you wish to offer a new course for the first time it does not have to be reviewed by the Academics Committee, unless the course is a specific requirement for a major or minor. First-time offered courses are given a temporary number of either a 185, 285 or 385 such as US285. However, first-time courses that are required for a major or minor, which must be reviewed by the Academic Committee, would have a permanent number assigned.
If you wish to offer a 185, 285 or 385 for a second time it needs to be reviewed by the Academics Committee. The deadline for submitting a Spring 2021 course proposal is Tuesday, October 20th, 2020. This is a true deadline.
Graduate-level courses should be sent to Mary Kate McNulty and undergraduate course proposals to Bruce Keller. All courses proposal must include how they will be "All Modes Ready". Please review which courses you plan on offering in the spring and if any of them were 185, 285 or 385 they need to be reviewed by the Academics Committee.
