University Curriculum Committee

Curriculum committees at the college and university levels will address all matters dealing with major and minor requirements, new courses, new degree and certificate programs, the core curriculum, and program development. All proposals for new degree programs must be consistent with the CSU's mission and must follow the procedures described by the University Systems Office of Academic Programs ( http://www.usg.edu/academic_programs/ ).

The responsibilities of the University Curriculum Committee are to:

  • Review and make recommendations on all requests to create new courses, modify existing courses, delete courses, and reactivate courses;
  • Review and recommend policies that govern general university requirements;
  • Review and make recommendations on all new undergraduate and graduate degree, certificate, and minor program proposals; and;
  • Notify the CSU SACSCOC Liaison if any curricular initiative represents a substantive change of the type indicated by the chart in the Columbus State University Substantive Change Policy.

UCC Announcements

Thanks for the big turnout for the recent MyCurriculum training. Here are a few tips as we head into curriculum season.

1. If you weren't able attend a training session, you may want to check in with a colleague who did, or you can contact Pat McHenry or Suzy Gunnels for assistance.

2. You can access the system through MyCSU. Click on Faculty/Staff, then MyCurriculum Courses or MyCurriculum Programs.

3. The system is available to use now. However, some programs are still in migration and will not be available until late September. To start modifications on one of these programs, use the old index form on the P-Drive, then transfer the proposal to MyCurriculum Programs when the program has migrated.

4. For approvers, you should get an email with a link that takes you to your approval queue when a proposal appears there. For direct access, open either MyCurriculum Courses or Programs, and change the last word in the URL to "courseleaf," then click on "approve pages."

5. College Curriculum Chairs: Please use this google sheet to indicate which proposals you're bringing to the UCC in September. (We'll only use this as we transition to CourseLeaf.)
