Graduate Course Review Committee

The Graduate College Course Review Committee reviews and recommends approval of graduate-level courses before they are published in the class schedule, Graduate Catalog, or other lists of course offerings. The committee also reviews proposals for all changes to graduate courses, including course deletions. See the Curriculum Changes website for details regarding making modifications to the graduate curriculum.

Schedule of Meetings

Please do some early planning and note the following as your School/College plan curricular changes for your graduate programs in AY2020-21.

Please note:

  • For AY2020-21, the final acceptance of approved School/College Course proposals in Curriculog will be no later than April 26, 2021, at 5 p.m. Any proposals that have not been forwarded with complete approval signatures in Curriculog to the Graduate Course Review Committee by this time will not be considered for the final Graduate Course Review Committee meeting for AY2020-21. To allow for sufficient time to review and approval, no exceptions will be made for this hard deadline.
  • The final technical review for any program proposals conducted by the Graduate College is April 1st, 2021 @ 5pm. This is to allow sufficient time for review and feedback on proposals as well as processing through the Schools/Colleges in order to be included in the final Graduate Course Review meeting. We cannot guarantee that any proposals submitted after this time will be included in the final Graduate Course Review Committee meeting.

The Course Review Committee typically meets from 1 - 3 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month (Please note the exceptions below: Dec. 9, 2020 @ 3:30pm and March meeting will be March 24, 2021 @1pm). Submission Deadlines indicate that the proposals have received all approval signatures from the unit and at the Graduate Course Review Committee Step in Curriculog. Invitations will be issued to the proposers, as appropriate.

Deadlines for Approved Course Review Forms

Please note the approval deadlines for course forms. Though we might be able to approve and create new courses or course changes in the PeopleSoft system after the deadlines below, we cannot guarantee that approved proposals past these deadlines will be available for the desired semester. Thus, we would encourage submission of forms into Curriculog at least one year in advance of intended courses offering dates.
