Curriculum Procedures and Requirements
Review the procedures for new curriculum degree programs (majors and concentrations) and information about the review process.
Review the Senate Policy governing certificate programs and procedural guidelines.
The Office of GS&R and the GS&R Committee oversee the Graduate Writing Assessment Program on campus. They review new course certifications, oversee the course recertification process, GWAR policy, and waivers. Learn more about competency in written English, new course certification, recertification and students' satisfaction of GWAR.
Graduate students with an RP grade in a thesis (299) or project (often 298) course in the S12 or later semester are required to enroll in the 1-unit course, UNVS 290, in each semester until degree completion except in cases in which the department requires repeated enrollment in these classes each semester until completion. Some programs may need to complete a Minor Curriculum Change form.
