Foundational Documentation & Collaboration​


There are several foundational steps that are essential to your course proposal’s fiscal, legal, and curricular vitality. Work with your faculty, department head, and dean to accomplish the following.​

Departmental and Intra-Departmental Consensus ​

You should be able to provide documentation that your department has thoroughly discussed the course proposal.  ​

Be sure that your documentation provides evidence that you have consulted with other departments if your course proposal impacts other disciplines, such as impacting courses from another department. Provide evidence that they are aware of the proposal’s impact and their concerns or insights. ​

Program Student Learning Outcomes​

If there is a need to create, modify or inactivate Student Learning Outcomes as part of your program creation or modification, please work with your department’s SLO Facilitator to submit your requests to the Assessment of Student Learning Outcomes (ASLO) Subcommittee.​


Coordinate with the Articulation Officer for consideration of course articulation to CSU, UC, IGETC, or be C-ID eligible.​

Approval Sheets​

The dean’s signature indicates their awareness of the course proposal. The dean should be involved in conversations regarding the course proposal and is responsible for assessing and communicating the impact on resources, scheduling, facilities, etc.​
