Course Review Process

The University Studies Committee prefers to receive proposals in an electronic format.  Materials should be sent to Jake Hayden. A hard copy of the appropriate form, with appropriate signatures, must be received before the proposal can be given final approval.

All course proposals submitted to the University Studies Program for inclusion in the program must include the following items. 

  1. Course proposal/action request form:

  2. Detailed course syllabus, must contain a statement of the USP objectives, specific to the course.

  3. USP criteria review sheets for each category requested, no more than two categories for a single course.

Please consider how each course submitted for University Studies review will affect or be affected by the major and minor requirements, college requirements, and other University Studies courses.  Please also consider the articulation agreement with Wyoming community colleges and how your requirements will affect these and other transfer students.

If you have questions regarding your submission, please contact Jake Hayden at 766-4907.

University Studies Committee Meetings*

New and modified courses that need to be reviewed by University Course Review Committee must be received by the USP Committee at least four weeks prior to the University Course Committee meeting.  Please be aware that once registration for a term has begun, modifications to existing courses will not take effect until the following semester. Please plan accordingly.

Completed proposals must be received in the Office of Academic Affairs at least two weeks prior to the meeting in which they are to be reviewed.
