Course Approval and Course Remonstrance

An online Course Approval System is available to request a new course or request a course change. This system allows a faculty member or other approved academic unit official to submit a request online which will then route to designated individuals as part of a workflow process. Once the request has been approved at all levels, the course request will be posted to the All University Course Remonstrance list on the 1st day of the upcoming month; the current course list will be available for review until the end of the month. Objections to any proposed courses should be raised following the Course Remonstrance process.
