The following roles were created to facilitate the course approval process:
- Course Contact: usually a Student Affairs Officer (SAO) or class scheduler assigned as the point person to submit proposals on behalf of the department and who acts as the main liaison between the department and the Senate Staff. The Course Contact may create, edit, and submit a course proposal for COCI review.
- Department Reviewer: usually the Department Chair or a designate responsible for approving the course proposal on behalf of the department. The department reviewer must approve the proposal before it can move forward in the workflow and be considered by COCI.

- Final School Reviewer (School/College Dean): Usually a Dean with final authority to approve the course proposal for the school. This role is optional and only utilized by some schools and colleges.
