Catalog Revisions 2019-2020

Summary of Curriculum Deadlines 2019-2020

Catalog Revision Process

Every year we ask departments and programs to review catalog copy for the next University Catalog. There are four sections of the catalog that need to be reviewed - courses, academic programs, departmental sections, and administration and faculty listings. During the fall, we ask for proposals for changes to any of these sections.

Changes to Courses, Academic Programs, and Policies

  • Any change to catalog copy other than text under the Overview tab must go through a submission and approval process.  The web pages Approval Process and Submission Process have more details on this process.
  • Courses -- Final deadline for new courses and modifications to existing ones: 

December 1, 2019

  • Academic Programs -- Final deadline for new programs and modifications to existing ones:  

December 1, 2019

Changes to Section for Department or Program Overview

  • Copy the sections you want to change into a Word document and use track changes; email the document to Jill Bowen.

  • Department and Program Sections -- Deadline for changes:  12/15/19.

Changes in the  Administration and Faculty Listing

  • Send all changes to the Administration and Faculty catalog listing by email to Jill Bowen.
  • For new faculty members, please use the following format:  Last name, first name, middle initial, title. First degree date, institution; next degree date, institution; next degree date, institution.

  • For current faculty members, delete all faculty who have left and make title changes for faculty who have been promoted. 

  • Do not include adjuncts or affiliates in the Administration and Faculty listings.
  • Administration and Faculty listing -- Deadline for changes: 1/15/2020 (tentative)

Review of new catalog copy: early-February 2020 (tentative)

In February, we will ask you to do a review of the programs and courses offered by your department or program to ensure requested changes were made. All curriculum changes approved by the College Curriculum Committee and appropriate council will be entered in the working version of the catalog before you start reviewing those changes. At this stage no new changes will be possible.


If you have any questions, please contact the Jill Bowen at (703) 993-8721.
