Process and Forms for Graduate and Undergraduate Proposals
NOTICE: The new Courseleaf Content Inventory Management (CIM) system will become active in the near future. For this reason, effective March 1, 2016, the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee will no longer process Category A and B curriculum proposals on the existing curriculum proposal forms. However, these forms may be used as guides/templates to get proposals ready for submission through the new CIM system when it comes online. For the time being, and until further notice, minor changes (Category C proposals) may be submitted on the existing forms.
IMPORTANT: Download and save forms first. You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Professional 9 on your computer in order to save filled out copies of these forms. Call the Help Desk at 796-6400 (in Juneau) or 877-465-6400 (outside of Juneau) if you do NOT have this program. Launch Adobe Acrobat Professional 9 first, then open proposal form. By opening the form in Adobe Professional 9 rather than Adobe Reader, you will be able to go under File> Save As> and save your form.
