Implementation of New and Revised Curriculum Programs and Courses
Publication of new and revised courses and curriculum programs in the Chancellor's University Report signifies CUNY approval.
Beyond this, there are two items that require NY State Education Department approval in the form of an official letter from SED:
- New associate degree or certificate programs.
- Substantive changes in degree programs
Following CUNY approval, and required SED approval as indicated above, implementation of what has been approved may begin, including marketing, advertising, recruiting, and advising students, as well as other administrative actions. The Office of Academic Affairs will notify Department Chairpersons, the Curriculum Committee Chairperson, and others as appropriate, when the Chancellor's Report is published. Likewise, the Office of Academic Affairs will provide a copy of the letter from SED to Department Chairpersons and others as appropriate.
Department chairpersons should contact the:
- Registrar to obtain course numbers for new courses, and to have appropriate forms updated (for example, "Application for Change of Curriculum").
- Scheduling Coordinator to plan future offerings of the course.
Department chairpersons should contact also the following individuals to plan and implement marketing and advertising of new or significantly revised programs, and advising and registering students in them:
- Director of Communications and Marketing
- Director of Admissions and Recruitment
- Dean of Student Services (Academic Counseling and Course Advisement)
- Director of the Academic Success Center (Academic Advisement Coordinator)
Department chairpersons should contact the Academic and Transfer Resources Coordinator regarding the publication of new and revised course and program information in the College catalog and/or addendum. Please note that the College reserves the right, because of changing conditions, to make modification of any nature in the academic programs, requirements and policies of the College without advance notice. The College regrets any inconvenience this may cause, and students are advised to consult regularly with College and department counselors and advisers concerning their programs of study.
Departmental chairpersons should also contact the Academic and Transfer Resources Coordinator (Academic Affairs) and take appropriate steps for updating TIPPS and articulation agreements with new or revised courses and curriculum programs.
