Course Subject Listings

Establishing or Restructuring a Course Subject Listing

Proposals to establish new Course Subject listings (sometimes referred to as Timetable departments), or to reorganize or discontinue Course Subject listings typically are approved by the program faculty, at the school/college level by the APC or curriculum committee, and subsequently at the University Academic Planning Council. Deans forward proposals to the provost. The provost will present the proposal to the University Academic Planning Council. This process assures that changes in Course Subject Listings are consistent with the purpose of the Schedule of Classes – to support enrollment by students – and will insure that all appropriate campus offices are notified of the change.
