Every course proposal, whether a new course or a course modification, has eight sections that must be completed: General Course Info; Academic Content; Credit; Requirements; Formats; Prerequisites; Restrictions; and Finishing Up. While some sections are optional, the majority are required. When submitting new courses make sure that the information in the course syllabus is aligned with information provided in the proposal. Discrepancies will result in the proposal being returned to the department for clarification or correction. This can cause a delay in the course review process.
