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 ( ).

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.
