Guidelines and Forms
Guidelines and Forms
The intent of this page is to help faculty develop high quality course and curriculum proposals that meet the College standards and guidelines. Please direct questions by email to the AAC at email@example.com.
All proposals submitted for full Committee review are first reviewed by Committee staff for completeness. Once deemed complete, they are then posted for two weeks on the "Current Proposals for Review" web page (https://www.esf.edu/acadgov/aac/cp.php) for review by faculty. Committee staff will inform the proposer when the item will be discussed at a meeting of the full Academic Affairs Committee.
Please note that, in order for a proposal to be considered by the Academic Affairs Committee during the 2022-2023 academic year meeting schedule, the deadline for submission of proposals is as follows:
Curriculum Proposals deadline: January 16, 2024

Administrative Approval of minor course revisions
If the proposed course revision is minor (i.e. a name change or other change with little impact outside the home department), it may be administratively approved by the Associate Provost of Academic Affairs. PLEASE NOTE that a fully completed Course Proposal Form must be submitted with the Administrative Approval Form in order for the submission to be reviewed by the Associate Provost.
Administrative Approval of minor curriculum or certificate revisions
Please refer to the form for acceptable minor revisions. Only ONE revision may be made through administrative approval.
