Submitting Program Changes for L&S Mid-Cycle Guide Update

Mid-Cycle Guide updates (for Spring publication) are limited to correction of errors or clarifications that will have a substantial effect on students’ abilities to complete requirements.

Most edits need to wait until the annual update call for the Fall 2024 Guide.

Examples of mid-cycle updates for undergraduate and graduate programs:

  • Reinsert a course that was accidentally removed
  • Remove a discontinued (red-boxed) course

Graduate programs only may update Admissions table items for mid-cycle updates. For example:

  • Edit GRE requirement information
  • Update the deadline for graduate admissions materials
  • Adjust the number of letters of recommendation

Please see the Graduate School Admissions Table Guidelines: https://kb.wisc.edu/grad/89647

Other changes must wait for the Fall Guide cycle.

How to submit changes for mid-cycle governed content:

(How to Get In, Requirements, Learning Outcomes, or four- and three-year plans)

Fill out the Lumen Programs Form to submit changes.

  • Deadline: Thursday, Sept 7, 2023

If your proposed change encompasses more than what is described in this document, please plan on submitting a Lumen Program Proposal for Fall 2024 edits. L&S Academic Planning and AIM staff are available for questions and consultation.
