Graduate Curriculum Committee

Chaired by Senior Associate Dean, the Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) oversees the process for creating new graduate courses and integrating them into the State of Florida’s Common Course Numbering System (SCNS). Composed of six Graduate Faculty members representing various academic disciplines, the GCC assists the Senior Associate Dean with requests for new courses and course modifications. Those requests are to be submitted through UF’s Academic Approval Tracking System. Anyone with a valid Gatorlink username and password can access approval.ufl.edu, however only those with “approver” access will be able to submit decisions. If you need to request or change approver access, you can email: approval@ufl.edu. ‌

The Academic Approval Tracking System is used to transmit requests for new courses and course changes throughout each stage of the approval process.  All course change proposals and new course requests must be uploaded and submitted using this system. All decisions will also be communicated directly back to the units through the system. Per the request of the Graduate Curriculum Committee members, an updated and current syllabus should be included with all proposals for new course requests, as well included for most course changes, especially when requesting changes to the course description, lab code, and/or credit hours.  Please feel free to use the sample graduate syllabus template found here. 

During the fall and spring semesters of the academic year, the Graduate Curriculum Committee meets the second Thursday of each month.  Due to the nature of faculty appointments and general lack of proposal items, the committee is normally not scheduled to meet during the summer semesters.
