Curriculum Action Notice


Academic Affairs Committee


October 18, 2001

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curriculum actions. Within the next 10 days, please forward any comments or concerns to the AAC Chair, Helen Biblehimer, Elliott Hall 203, x4521,

Change in Curricular procedure: Adopt a form and procedure to expedite approval of "Distance Education Course Approval for Existing Credit-Bearing Courses" (See attachment e-mailed campuswide for the proposed form)


Procedure for approval:

  1. Distance Education Course Approval For Existing Credit-Bearing Courses submitted to the academic department for consideration.

  2. After approval by the department, the form is forwarded to AAC.

  3. After approval by AAC the form and attached materials are forwarded to the President for his approval.


Rationale for the change:

The CBA agreement calls for a procedure for approving existing credit bearing courses for Distance Ed in no more than 30 days. With our present curricular procedure this 30-day deadline would be impossible to meet. The meet and discuss committee of APSCUF has approved the attached form and procedure. There is no substantive change to any course as a result of this action.
