We are currently accepting curriculum proposals with a desired implementation of Fall Semester 2022 or later.

Note: It can take as long as six weeks for a curriculum proposal to get to the UCC after it is submitted to RAM. 

December Academic Senate Meeting Curriculum proposals to be considered for Fall Semester 2022 implementation must be supported by the Academic Senate no later than the December 2021 meeting.
