Course Curriculum Forms
Office of Academic Services

Updated December 2015

All new course proposals and changes to existing courses are completed using the Web Course Curriculum database. The web Course Curriculum database project is a work in progress and continues to evolve. For example, we plan to have help menus at each page of the outline and we intend to introduce more forms.

All of the active courses are represented in the database. Administrative details, learning outcomes, content topics and textbooks are currently listed for each course. As each course comes due for routine review we are asking the faculty to complete the outlines.

Need employee access to the curriculum database? Have technical questions? Email the Curriculum Database Specialist at

Need assistance with writing or revising a course proposal? Email the chair of the Course Evaluation Subcommittee, Heidi Neu at

Below are informational documents about the required inclusions and minimum standards for acceptance of various curriculum proposals to begin the formal curriculum approval process.
