Curriculum Guidelines and Forms
Curriculum Guidelines and Forms for the Office of Graduate Studies
Curriculum proposals for consideration by the Committee on Graduate Studies should be drafted using the templates below. Following approval by the program, Program Directors should submit proposals via email to the Associate Dean for Graduate studies at email@example.com.
Please name files according to program or course name, action type, and semester. A new course proposal for CRJ 799 submitted in spring 2014, for example, would be named "CRJ 799 new course S14."
