University Curriculum Committee
The University Curriculum Committee is a body that is responsible for
evaluating new and revised curriculum proposals that affect the Illinois
State University undergraduate curriculum as follows:
- New and revised majors, minors, sequences and any courses that
are required within are reviewed and approved by the University
- Stand-alone courses are reviewed and approved by the Executive
Secretary of the Committee.
- Editorial changes are reviewed and approved by the Executive
Secretary of the Committee.
The University Curriculum Committee approved adding the recommended Syllabus Structure and Common Language May, 2012 to the UCC Policies and Procedures
The Committee's work is directed by the
Baccalaureate Degree Document (PDF 42KB).
The University Curriculum Committee, in conjunction with the Office of the University Registrar, has created new undergraduate on-line proposal forms for New, Revised, and Deleted Courses and Programs, and Temporary and Professional Practice Courses. The UCC encourages proposal initiators to use these new electronic forms. The “old forms” will still be available for a short transition period. New proposal forms can be accessed at: https://www.registrar.ilstu.edu/curriculumforms/support/login.aspx.
For more information on the new proposal process, see the New On-line Curriculum Proposal Process here.
The Committee's policies, procedures and forms
are available on-line.
Requests for editorial changes for both courses and programs need to come through the department chair/school director with their approval noted. A brief rationale/reason for change should accompany the request along with exact proposed new catalog copy. See the list of allowable Editorial Changes in the Undergraduate Catalog.
On March 24, 2004, the Academic Senate approved a form as an addition to the new program approval process. This Financial Implication Form (Word or PDF), verifies that the financial implications of any new program have been examined and that resources are available for the implementation of the program proposed. Please complete this form for all new programs and submit it as you would all other forms relevant to the approval process. (The pdf version of the form is interactive and may be completed online.)
proposals circulate for a two-week period to
provide opportunities for review by the campus community. Objections to any proposals must be received by the University Curriculum Committee no later than two weeks following the date of circulation.
Catalogs (External Link) from Academic Year 1994-95 to the present are available
