L&S 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

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 approves a proposal. Cross-college cross-listings and course with General Education designations make take longer.

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: Undergraduate program deadlines

Lumen program proposal and Guide editing deadlines for Undergraduate programs, effective FALL 2023:
  • Fall cycle changes: 
    • Friday, December 2, 2022
    • 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.
    • Depending on the changes, program proposals will be reviewed by the L&S Curriculum Committee, or will be administratively approved.
  • Mid-cycle (Spring) minor updates: 
    • Wednesday, September 7, 2022 (End of day)
    • 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.

Program changes: Graduate Program or Capstone Certificate program deadlines


Lumen program proposal and Guide editing deadlines for Graduate program or capstone certificates:
  • Fall cycle changes
    • Feb. 15 is the deadline for Fall 2023 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
    • Wednesday, September 7, 2022 (End of day) is the deadline for Spring 2023 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.
