  1. New courses
  2. Changes in title, description, number, prerequisites, etc. of courses
  3. New undergraduate and graduate degree programs
  4. Modifications to degree programs

The committee is responsible for resolving questions concerning course numbering, course or program duplication, completeness of course or program revision forms, and other questions pertaining to course and program changes, including compliance with administrative guidelines implementing Board Policy.
