Faculty may submit courses to the General Education Committee (GEC) for approval as changes to the General Education Core and as Multicultural and International.

All new courses must receive approval from the UNLV Curriculum Committee.

All existing courses may be submitted directly to the GEC for approval. Your college representative on the GEC will be the advocate for your class during the committee meeting. Contact your college representative in order to prepare for the approval process.
