Curriculum Approvals and Processes

Change in Major


  • Modification to existing major: Change in credits required (including credits of a required course); course requirements; changes in prerequisites leading to additional courses; new, modified or deleted track, specialization or concentration in existing major.
  • A teach-out plan is needed for students if a track is deleted.
  • Requirements cannot be added to an active catalog because it would violate students' catalog rights.
