Minor Changes to Course Titles or Numbers

Unless the proposal is for a new course, or a substantively revised course, it is no longer necessary to request sign-off approval from the Registrar, your department library liaison, Technology Resources (Kevin Creamer) or the associate dean. If it is a minor change to the course title, or changing the number of the course, you need not include signoffs. 

Additionally, it is not necessary to complete an entire course proposal form for minor changes in title and change in number. Simply send a statement of the change, including the course description with a change in title, to Kathrin Bower who will forward it to the Academic Council agenda.

Although it is not necessary to have the Registrar’s written sign-off, faculty are strongly urged to talk with Kristen Ball to make sure that the new number chosen for the course can be used.
