Deadlines for curriculum proposals to be submitted to APC-C for meeting review:

  • All new/revised courses, new/revised programs, expedited proposals, exempt proposals, supporting documentation/memos, and miscellaneous information MUST be received the Tuesday before the agenda is posted. Agendas are posted a week before the scheduled meeting.  Failure to do so may result in a delay in the review process. 

Deadlines for revisions to be submitted to APC-C for inclusion in the 2024-2025 catalog:

  • For program revisions requiring NYSED submission, complete program revision proposal packages must be submitted from the Schools by Wednesday, October 25.
  • For all other programs, complete course proposals and program revision proposal packages must be submitted from the Schools by Friday, December 15.
  • Requests for extensions will be considered on a case-by-case basis. The Associate Dean rep to APC should be in touch with the Associate Provost and APC-C Chair as soon as it becomes clear that an extension is needed, so an acceptable submission date can be determined.

As always, it helps APC-C manage its workload if school curriculum committees submit complete packages to APC-C as early in the fall semester as possible.

Guidance for School Curriculum Committees Reviewing Program and Course Proposals
APC has determined that it is the responsibility of school curriculum committees (rather than APC) to conduct “detailed review of the course content, course syllabus, course description, etc.”. This document discusses the criteria to be applied in review of course proposals, as well as criteria to be considered in review of program proposals.

FAQ for Curriculum Processes
AKA "everything you needed to know about curriculum proposals in CIM..." - it includes tips on using CIM, information on creating course proposals for new, revised, and experimental-turning-to-permanent courses, revising programs, and using course attributes. 

How To ... Guide for Proposers Preparing New, Experimental, and Revised COURSE Proposals 
The focus of this guide is how to make sure your proposal is addressing the kinds of questions asked by the school curriculum committee and APC in their review of course proposals, including course titles, course numbers, course SLOs, the rationale, and more.

How To ... Step-By-Step Guide for Proposers Preparing New and Revised PROGRAM Proposals 
This guide had two parts: 1) information on the various components that are part of every curriculum package that includes a program revision, and 2) step-by-step instructions for completing the CIM proposal, including the rationale, program requirements, and the Plan of Study grid (in this folder, you can find the undergraduate grid template in the preferred NYSED format, along with instructions for how to use it, and examples of filled out templates).

Developing Your Ithaca College Course Syllabus
This page links to information about required and recommended elements for course syllabi, including guidance on how to communicate to students time spent in the classroom and on assignments, per new required syllabus element 4. 

How to write effective SLOs 

From March 2021 through April 2023, the Curriculum Revision Liaison Committee provided significant support and guidance for departments as they undertook significant curriculum revision. The CRLC's work concluded at the end of the spring 2023 semester.
