Credit Course Addition/Deletion/Modification
02:12:02 Credit Course Addition/Deletion/Modification


  1. The modification of an existing course shall be defined as changing the course description, course number, course title, or lecture-lab distribution. The following process shall be followed to add a credit course, delete a credit course, or modify a credit course:
  2. The faculty member initiating the change develops or revises the syllabus and, where applicable, revises the program of study. The documents are attached to Curriculum Change form(s) and signed by the faculty member. Appropriate departmental faculty should evaluate proposed curriculum changes prior to submission to the department head/dean.
  3. The department head/dean completes the Curriculum Change form(s). Where new or revised courses are part of the proposed change, the department head/dean completes the Course Syllabus Review form and ensures that all needed revisions have been made prior to submitting the documents to the Curriculum Committee Chair.
  4. The Chair of the Curriculum Committee distributes the proposed changes to the Screening Committee for review and approval. If the Screening Committee identifies problems, the paperwork is returned to the department head/dean for further revision and subsequent reevaluation by the Screening Committee. Proposals not approved by the Screening Committee are returned to the department head/dean; approved proposals are forwarded to the Chair of the Curriculum Committee.
  5. Curriculum changes approved by the Chair of the Curriculum Committee are submitted to the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.
  6. Curriculum changes approved by the Provost Vice President for Academic Affairs that do not require TBR approval are distributed to appropriate college offices for administrative processing. (Original forms routed to: (1) Records, (2) Articulation, (3) Publications, and (4) Curriculum.)
  7. Official copies of approved new and revised courses are placed on the Chattanooga State Web Page.
