Reviewing Courses

This tutorial will be most helpful for departments that made changes to their courses (adding/deleting courses, updating pre/corequisites, changing staffing formulas, updating course descriptions, etc.) since the 2019-2020 catalog was published last April. If your department did not make any changes to their courses over the last year, they will remain as is.

Reviewing Your Courses

Review your courses here. Please keep the following in mind:

  • DO NOT print the course list (this defeats the purpose of saving paper)
  • Only course change requests (descriptions, requisites, staffing formulas, etc.) that were approved up to the dean's level by Dec. 20, 2019 are and will be (for last-minute approvals) reflected in the 2020-2021 catalog
  • If any changes were omitted or if you spot any typos, we suggest copying the course(s) in question to a Word document (or email, if minimal) and using track changes or other kind of highlight to indicate the change(s)
  • You can also reference the Curriculog proposal number in Comments; go to the Curriculog site, locate the approved course change form and copy the four-digit number from the URL
  • Submit your changes to your dean's office or designee, for return to Academic Programs
