Course Action Request

Online Workflow System for Curriculum Proposals
This single form should be used by faculty and staff for proposals to add new courses to the curriculum, revise courses, or delete courses from the catalog. The form will be routed through all necessary approval stages.

Deadlines for Catalog Changes
Course Revisions: All course change requests must be approved in the CAR system by February 5th of each year in order for these changes to be included in the following catalog (for both fall and spring). For this reason, we recommend submitting a CAR form requesting a course revision no later than December 1st to reach this deadline.

New Courses: New courses will be posted in the catalog within 72 hours of final course approval and be open to students for registration. If a new course submission that has reached "END" stage in the CAR system has not appeared in the catalog within 72 hours, please contact

Additional information regarding catalog changes can be found here.
