Curriculum Committee Schedule for the 2019-2020 Academic Year

Submit Curriculum Early and Monitor Progress

  • Please, submit early and do not wait for the deadlines!! More proposals can be considered if earlier agendas are full.
  • Items submitted for review that do not meet College standards and require extensive corrections will take longer to process.
  • Originators are responsible for responding rapidly and fully to change requests and monitoring progress.
  • The Curriculum Committee can never guarantee when curriculum will be reviewed, completed or approved, even when deadlines are met. The committee makes every effort to process proposals that meet the deadlines as quickly as resources permit. Early attention to quality standards and early submission increase the chances of timely approval.
