L&S Curricular Deadlines for Course and Program Changes

Please consult the information below for deadlines to change courses, add courses or change program requirements.

COURSES: Lumen course proposal deadlines (by course proposal type)

Departments must use Lumen Courses to submit course proposals, and must upload a syllabus with all syllabus components required by campus.

Typically course proposals receive final approval and are imported into SIS 5-8 weeks after the L&S Curriculum Committee approvals a proposal. Cross-college cross-listings and courses with General Education designations may take longer.

1Recommended date builds in time for revisions (including adding missing components to the syllabus), other required department or committee approvals, and to address questions. You will be notified if revisions to the proposal are needed. These recommended deadlines assume you will address feedback within several days.

2final deadlines: All cross-listed departments must approve the proposal by the date listed. Proposals will miss final deadlines if the syllabus submitted is missing any required syllabus components or if any revisions are required before L&S CC review. (This deadline does not build in time for those things)

PROGRAM CHANGES: Lumen program proposal and Guide editing deadlines

Undergraduate program change deadlines, effective FALL 2023:
  • Fall cycle changes: 
    • Deadline TBD. Around early December, Fall 2023 for Fall 2022 effective dated changes.
    • Our publication cycle is primarily an annual cycle. Please submit all changes and course additions that are needed for the full 2022-2023 academic year by the deadline.
  • Mid-cycle (Spring) minor updates: 
    • Deadline TBD. Typically mid-September is the deadline for Spring 2023 effective dated changes.
    • Mid-cycle changes are limited to correction of errors or clarifications that will have a substantial effect on students’ abilities to complete requirements. For example: Reinserting a course that was accidentally removed from the list of required courses. You may also remove discontinued (red-boxed) courses. We will not approve other types of changes for mid-cycle publication.
The deadlines above are for both governed and non-governed content. Departments will use Lumen Programs to submit changes to "governed content" (see Propose changes to L&S program requirements (Major, Named Option, Certificate, Graduate Minor) for more information). "Non-governed" tabs (Overview, Advising and Careers, People, and Resources and Scholarships) can be edited directly in Guide.

Graduate program or capstone certificate change deadlines:
  • Fall cycle changes
    • March 1 is the deadline for Fall 2022 effective dated changes. Substantial changes should be submitted earlier (recommended by end of January) so they have enough time to be reviewed by governance committees. 
    • Our publication cycle is primarily an annual cycle. Please submit all changes and course additions that are needed for the full 2022-2023 academic year by the deadline.
  • Mid-cycle Spring minor updates
    • Friday, September 18, 2021 is the deadline for Spring 2022 effective dated changes.
    • Mid-cycle changes are limited to admission updates and correction of errors or clarifications that will have a substantial effect on students’ abilities to complete requirements. For example: Reinserting a course that was accidentally removed from the list of required courses. You may also remove discontinued (red-boxed) courses. We will not approve other types of changes for mid-cycle publication.
