Graduate Curriculum Committee

The purpose of the committee is to review and make determinations on all proposed additions, deletions, and changes to graduate curriculum and graduate program information housed in the university catalog. This body will provide final approvals but reserves the right to confer with members of the Graduate Council, if necessary. This body will provide curriculum reports at the scheduled Graduate Council meetings.

All curriculum must be submitted 2 weeks prior to the posted Graduate Council meeting date to be reviewed at next meeting. Any curriculum received after that will be tabled to the following month's meeting.
