Graduate Curriculum Committee Meeting Dates and Agenda Deadlines

In order to give the Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) members ample time to review such a large number of proposals each month, agendas are sent to each of the committee members one week in advance of the upcoming meeting.  In turn, submission deadline dates for that agenda are set one week prior to that date.  In turn, when submitting items for review and consideration by GCC, items must be submitted through the online approval system to the Graduate Curriculum level at least two weeks in advance of the intended meeting date. However, meeting the deadline for submission date listed in the table below does not guarantee the item will assuredly be on the upcoming agenda. Depending upon any issues found within the proposal and upon the number of proposals under review by the committee at the time, the item may be sent back by staff for revision at any time during this process.

We highly encourage you to begin discussions with Graduate School staff when initially planning to submit the proposal into the online approval system.  We can provide guidance at that time, allowing your proposal to flow more effectively through the review process by the full committees.  We also recommend that you submit the proposal early in order to ensure a place on the desired agenda.  Due to the processing time of course proposals and the fact that the proposal must be approved only for an upcoming term and by multiple units throughout the entire University, we recommend submitting proposals at least two semesters in advance of the proposed effective date. 

The meeting dates for the current academic year are listed below:
