Course Proposal Process

Course Proposal Form

Proposals for new courses, changes to existing courses and reactivating courses, will only be processed in Academic Affairs when received with collegiate signature or by e-mail from the Dean or Associate Dean. 

The course proposal form should be used to propose a new course, make two or more changes to an existing course, or add a title to an existing special topics course.  If only one change to a current course is requested, a memo from the department head to the Dean or Associate Dean requesting the change may be forwarded on to Nancy Burley for Academic Affairs approval. The memo will be directed to the appropriate Associate Vice Chancellor based upon the course number. 

Always start with the course proposal form linked to this page; do not use any earlier version stored on an office computer.  It is suggested to complete the required items, save the file, and forward it on to the appropriate person for approval.

Additional information regarding correct course numbering, course equivalencies, and delivery format can be found in the following links.
