University Senate Curriculum Committee Forms
The University Senate Curriculum Committee forms are being provided by the Registrar's Office. Please print the form and complete using the following directions.
The following guidelines have been established to assist in effective processing of curriculum requests during the coming year:
- The originating department should submit all forms with the necessary signatures in place and six (6) copies to the Office of the Registrar. If a program or course is administered by two colleges/departments, both college curriculum committees and both deans must act on the changes.
- The University Senate Curriculum Committee will review requests in the order received.
- Departments are responsible for keeping records of all modifications.
- Each college Curriculum Committee will be assigned one or two University Senate Curriculum Committee members charged with the responsibility of reviewing departmental submissions. Assistance with completing forms is available from personnel in the Office of the Registrar (7-2711), your college USCC representative or the Chair of the USCC.
- A report will be on the web at http://www.und.nodak.edu/dept/registrar/curriculum/curindex.htm each month listing all approved changes. Please call the Office of the Registrar with any questions regarding curriculum requests.
Instructions for Completing Forms
- Complete all forms. The present course and program information should match the information in the current catalog.
- Obtain all signatures and be certain all individuals sign and check “Approved” or “Disapproved”.
- Frequency of course offering information is necessary for departmental planning and for the benefit of students. Normally, the frequencies are F (Fall), S (Spring), SS (Summer), On Demand, Once Per Year, F/2 (Fall, alternating years), etc.
- Attach supporting documents. If a college curricular decision affects another college or department, the other colleges or departments should respond in writing to the proposal. This response should be attached to the original request form.
- Programs or courses administered by two colleges must have signatures from both colleges/deans.
- Additional resources should be addressed carefully. Such resources as equipment, library, faculty, and space should be addressed thoroughly when new courses or programs are proposed and when significant changes are made to departmental offerings.
- Please route Cooperative Education forms through the Cooperative Education Office before submitting them to the University Senate Curriculum Committee.
- New program proposals should be carefully prepared and presented in binders with separate sections for each major review area. The proposal will be circulated to all institutions in the North Dakota University System prior to consideration by the State Board of Higher Education.
- Recommendations for termination or suspension of an academic program should be forwarded to the University Senate Curriculum Committee for review. All relevant information will be reviewed including reports resulting from internal program review as well as any external reviews that may have been performed. The University Senate Curriculum Committee will notify the university community of review of the program by notice published in the University Newsletter. The University Senate Curriculum Committee will provide opportunity for any involved or affected by the program to present information to aid the University Senate Curriculum Committee in developing its recommendation.
