Course Proposal: Getting Started
Each major section of the course proposal form has a KnowledgeBase (KB) page with field-by-field instructions and references to related policy. Please open these documents as you complete each section and read the information associated with each question on the form. There are some differences between this form and the previous course proposal form.
You can also click on the blue dot next to each field or question to access the help information for that specific question.
NOTE: This system will time out. Go to the bottom of the form and click at least once an hour to avoid losing your work.
Course Proposal Review Process: Purpose, Standards and Responsibilities
Those proposing a course should understand their responsibilities when submitting a course proposal. Proposals that do not meet all standards will be rolled back for revision. For more information, see the Policy on Course Proposal Review Process - Purpose, Standards and Responsibilities.
Course Proposal Expiration Policy
Once a course proposal has been started it is important to complete the full proposal and approval process in a timely manner. A proposer has 6 months (180 days) from the time the proposal is started to submit it to workflow. Once a proposal is in workflow it must be completed within 1 year (365 days). Any proposal that fails to meet these deadlines will be removed from the proposal system.
It is the responsibility of the course proposer to make sure that the proposal is moving through the approval process in a timely manner. For more information, see the Policy on Course Proposal Review Process - Purpose, Standards and Responsibilities.
