Modifying an Existing Courses

To modify an existing course, create a proposal in Curriculog using the Modify an Existing Course Form for the appropriate academic year.

Unless a change in course description and title is so removed from the current description and title that it is a new course, you can submit proposals for any of the following changes or modifications: 

  • Course Title
  • Course Transcript Title
  • Course Number/Subject Codes (cannot be revised in Spring Terms)
  • Catalog Description 
  • Pre- or Co-requisite or Other Enrollment Restrictions (including PeopleSoft screening for Prerequisites; other restrictions: i.e. Juniors only, etc.)
  • Course Notes
  • Course Learning Outcomes
  • Course Repeatability (Can the course be repeated for credit? Can a student satisfy this course twice to meet, for example, a major degree requirement?) 
  • Typically and session offered
  • Grading Method (cannot be revised in Spring Terms)
  • Teaching Mode/Component (lecture, lab, activity, and their hours; staffing formula, C/S factors, etc.) (cannot be revised in Spring Terms)
  • Request to satisfy a General Education, Writing (GWAR), or other University requirement for graduation (these courses will be auto-routed to the Board of General Studies)
