Curriculum Approvals and Processes

Change In Program


  • Modifications include: Change in credits required (including credits of a required course); course requirements; new, modified or deleted track, specialization or concentration in existing program. For deleted program, a "teach-out" plan for students in the program is needed for  Higher Learning Comission. Ohio Department of Higher Education needs to be notified.
  • Requirements cannot be added to an active catalog because it would violate students' catalog rights.
