CAS Undergraduate Curriculum Committee

Curriculum Submissions for potential implementation in Fall 2023

The priority deadline for review of curriculum proposals by the CAS-UCC is Monday, January 31, 2022.
(All proposals submitted by this deadline will be reviewed.)

All proposals received after January 31st will be reviewed only if time permits, as the CAS-UCC must meet the deadline for submission of materials to UUCT.

Program revisions are subject to review by College and University committees; a preliminary meeting with Academic & Curriculum Support or with the College Curriculum Committee paves the way for but does not guarantee approval.

For Course Revisions or Proposals

  • Course adds, deletes, and changes need to be entered into the CMS Online:
    • If you are a chair or program coordinator and need access to the CMS, email Rebecca Totaro (
    • Note: if your course add or change involves General Education requirements, be sure to complete the additional General Education form attached to the course add or change form in CMS.
  • Exceptions
    • If your change only pertains to a course’s repeatability, you need not submit a change form. Please instead email Rebecca Totaro for directions.
    • If your change is only to course title or course number, please reach out to Rebecca Totaro or to Curriculum Committee Chair Joe Ross before completing paperwork (

If the proposed revisions will require a change to the text or numbering within the catalog, see the directions below.  If no changes are needed to the catalog, the CMS forms will be reviewed as stand-alone courses.

For Major or Minor Revisions

If the proposed revisions will require a change to the text or numbering within the catalog, then

  • Create these three documents :
    • Proposal Form
    • Catalog copy revision
      • The catalog copy is available online.
      • Select “Print Program Details”; copy and paste into a Word document; track additions and deletions, including updated catalog year
      • Please note: For new courses, there must be a suggested 3-digit course number in CMS, but in the catalog copy, the suggested 3-digit course number must be represented with an XXX. For example, the level and suggested 3-digit course number of 4123 would be represented as 4XXX.
      • Save as a Word document.
    • Curriculum Map - for Program Revisions only
      • Get an up-to-date copy from Rebecca Totaro (
      • Revise it at will, no need for tracking changes.
      • Submit the map even if you have no changes to track.
      • Save as an Excel file.
    • Exceptions
      • If your changes include alteration to common prerequisites or other standard categories, such as Restricted Electives, email Rebecca Totaro or Joe Ross ( for information prior to completing the paperwork.
  • Email all required documents electronically to your Department Chair for review and potential signature.
  • Email all required and editable documents to Rebecca Totaro ( and Joe Ross ( Rebecca will confirm that your materials are complete and ready for review.

For New Major Proposals

If you are proposing a new program, or a global revision to a major, you are strongly encouraged to meet early with Rebecca or Joe, and perhaps also with Lucero Carvajal from the Office of Academic and Curriculum Support (ACS). This will help ensure that all state and university policies and procedures are being followed and all program requirements are clear and concise.  


The CAS Undergraduate Curriculum Committee is available for preliminary consult as well. If you would like to meet with us at any stage of the process, please email the committee chair, Joe Ross ( Here is additional information from the University
