CCO staffs the following committees:

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 (OSP) proposals via the curriculum management system, CurriculogTM.

Submit Special Topics 499 and 599 course proposals (scheduled in sessions 001-099) with course syllabi via Kuali. If the Special Topics course needs a special session, submit the Special Session Request and wait to receive the session number before submitting the Kuali request.

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.
