General Information

The Curriculum Coordination Office (CCO) coordinates the review of curriculum proposals. It is the liaison between USC academic units, the University Committee on Curriculum (UCOC), USC Catalogue, Degree Progress and Registration.

The CCO staffs the following committees:

  • University Committee on Curriculum (UCOC) and its four subcommittees
    • Arts and Humanities (AHS)
    • Health Professions (HPS)
    • Science and Engineering (SES)
    • Social Sciences (SSS)
  • Off-campus Studies Panel (OSP)
  • Committee on Academic Policies and Procedures (CAPP)

The CCO archives all curriculum proposals and minutes of all curriculum and policy and procedure committee meetings. Minutes of the UCOC meetings may be viewed on the UCOC Minutes page of this website.

Submitting Proposals

Submit all program, minor, course and off-campus study proposals via the curriculum management system, CurriculogTM.

Beginning fall 2018, Special Topics offerings (courses numbered 299, 499, 599 or 699) will no longer be requested in Kuali and must be submitted in CurriculogTM using the dedicated approval process for approval and scheduling. If the Special Topics course needs a special session, submit the Special Session Request and wait to receive the session number before submitting in CurriculogTM.

Proposals for the General Education (GE) program may be submitted by a designated representative of each academic unit to the GE Drop-box site. Questions regarding GE proposals should be directed to Richard Fliegel. Procedures on how to submit the GE-approved courses for GE designation in the Student Information System (SIS) and USC Catalogue are posted on the Resources page of this website.
