Course Proposals

Do you need to create a new course or update key information about a course? You’ll need to write a course proposal, including an official syllabus, and submit it through Lumen.

New course proposals are proposals to create a new course number. This can be for a completely new course or for a course that was previously taught under a Special Topics listing.

Course change proposals are adjustments to an existing course. This could include updating the title, course number, requisites, learning outcomes, number of credits, course description, components (e.g. adding a discussion section or lab), attributes (e.g. Quantitative reasoning, LAS credit, graduate attribute), or cross-listings.

Tip: If you have changes to only the requisites or only the course learning outcomes, there’s a shorter process for that. Learn about Requisite Amnesty and the Course Learning Outcomes Initiative.
