The course approval process governs both proposals for new courses and proposals for significant changes in existing courses.  The rationale for revisions to the course number, title, or content of any course should be forwarded to the Office of the Vice Provost for review on a case-by-case basis to determine if the course should be posted for thirty day review.

  • A course proposal is prepared, typically by a faculty member, and brought before the department.
     
  • The department reviews the proposal, and if approved it is submitted to the appropriate college council.
     
  • The college council and dean review the proposal.
     
  • If the proposal is approved by the council and the dean and does not require review by an additional review body, it may be posted for thirty day review at the list of courses on 30-Day review on the Provost's Office web site.  For a course to be posted for thirty day review: 
     
    • The college must notify the Office of the Vice Provost that the course has been approved by the college council; and
       
    • The college or department must forward an electronic copy of the syllabus to the Office of the Vice Provost on a diskette or as an attachment to e-mail. 
       
  • If the proposal requires approval by an additional review body, it must be submitted to that body for approval before being posted for thirty day review.  Teacher education courses are submitted to the College of Education Council, graduate courses to the Graduate Council, and University Studies courses to the University Studies Council. Once a proposal has been approved by the additional review body, it may be posted for thirty day review on the Provost's Office web site at http://www.semo.edu/provost/curriculum/30day/.  For a course to be posted for thirty day review: 
     
    • The appropriate review body must notify the Office of the Vice Provost that the course has been approved by the review body; and
       
    • The college or department must forward an electronic copy of the syllabus to the Office of the Vice Provost on a diskette or as an attachment to e-mail. 
       
  • A proposal that has been posted for thirty days without objection is considered approved. 
     
  • Otherwise, any objection to the proposal should be shared with the dean of the college from which it originates and the Office of the Vice Provost.
     
  • Objections are resolved by consensus among the interested parties.  Objections that cannot be resolved by consensus are submitted to Academic Council for resolution.
     
  • The Office of the Vice Provost will notify the Registrar when a course has received final approval.
