Appendix B : Timeline for Hunter Course Submission & Approval
The following timeline is intended to help academic programs plan for curricular changes. It provides a general overview of the process. Because proposals may encounter delays along the way, the timeline is strictly to emphasize that advance planning is necessary; there is no guarantee that proposals will be approved within the time frame suggested below.
Departmental curriculum committee approves a curricular action (new course, change in course, etc.) and submits the necessary forms to the appropriate dean’s office.
Weeks 4-6 (from start)
