Return to Table of ContentsBecause information contained in the university catalog is, in essence, a contract with the student, it is important that a catalog description accurately reflect the purpose, content and special resource requirements of a course.
All substantive changes in catalog descriptions must be reviewed by the UWUCC. Minor editorial changes in the course description, those, for example, which reflect a revision of terminology used in the course, may accompany a request to change a course number or title or they may be submitted independently if no other changes are desired. The format used and procedure followed for making course description changes are identical to those used for making name and number changes.
Part I. Curriculum Proposal Cover Sheet
Part II. Description of Curriculum Change
Part III. Letters of Support or Acknowledgement
Attach letters from interested or affected departments.(See page 3 for guidelines.)
**Note that the UWUCC reserves the right to question whether the prerequisite change requested should be accomplished with a course revision instead of just a catalog description change.
