Curriculum Proposal-Minor Modification

Curriculum Proposal-Minor Modification

A minor modification proposal does not open all fields for editing. For courses that are in 5 year review compliance and require updates not affecting the catalog, a minor modification proposal allows the originator to make changes without requiring attendance to a Curriculum Committee meeting to represent an extensive review process.

The difference between a Minor Modification and Major Modification proposal can be seen in the Course Modifications Checklist. As well, the checklist correlates the components of the course outline of record (COR) to the checklist found in CurricUNET helping to track your where your changes appear.

A Minor Modification proposal is started in CurricUNET by using the existing COR that has already been through the approval process. A copy is made that the originator and co-contributors of the proposal, if any, to work on without affecting the existing approved course. Until the new proposal itself has completed its way through the approval process, the original course will continue to show up for all others.
