Please keep in mind that all CAPs need to go through a review process, some may need revisions, and all need to be implemented by various staff members after they're approved. The speed in which they move through the process can vary, please submit the CAP during summer 2023 for September 2023 UCRC meeting.


Starting 06/01/2023, the AY Fall 2024-Spring 2025 Acalog catalog is open for edits. The 2023-2024 catalog is locked and closed. This means it is past the deadline for course changes for AY Fall 2023-Spring 2024 in the Acalog Catalog and Banner. Please make the changes to the 2024-2025 catalog to degree programs and submit courses to Curriculog during Fall 2023 for AY 2024-2025.

As a department chair or program director, you are responsible for assuring any proposals for changes to curriculum or courses are reviewed, discussed, and approved by program faculty. You are responsible for the program content in the Acalog Catalog for your department.

When a proposal reaches the Approver/Depatment head approval stage, you will receive a notification email prompting a decision.

Open the email and click on the Decisions Icon (a circle with a check inside of it). Select your decision and then click Make My Decision. This will then move the proposal to the next stage.

The workflow is a series of approvals needed for a CAP to get completed. The Curriculog system emails partipants when it is their turn to make their determination on a course.

Course Change, Course Discontinue, New Course


                College CAP Check

                Office of the Registrar Check

                Department Head

                College Curriculum Committee

                USP Committee (If Applicable)

                University Course Committee

The workflow in the Acalog Catalog is a group of approvals needed for edits to be approved by a version auditing group. When one person makes an edit, that version auditing group is notified to approve or reject the change in the Acalog Catalog.

Editor makes the changes - They system will notify a Reviewer or group of Reviewers to look over the edits made.

Reviewer - Will login to the Acalog Catalog and approve or reject the edits that were made.

It is necessary to submit a CAP for all A&S College Core D and G attribute as well as USP 2015 code additions or changes.

Renewals do NOT need a CAP.

USP 2015 codes as well as A&S College Core D and G attributes will be determined during the CAP workflow. 

Find the A&S Core D and G attribute form.

Find the USP Form on the USP 2015 Website

*Please attach the correspoding USP or A&S Core form to the propsal for the applicable course in Curriculog.

**You do NOT need to get the signatures on the USP 2015 or D and G forms. Just fill out the Student Learning Outcomes and content about the course and attach to the proposal in Curriculog. 

Curriculog is open for CAP submissions between 06/01/2023-11/01/2023 for AY 2024-2025 courses. There are no longer multiple open and close windows.
Curriculog does allow for multiple attributes to be added to one course. Because of the way Banner works, you can’t have multiple titles for one course number and prefix. Each course can have one title. Different sections that are created during Academic Scheduling of a topics course can have different titles.

The cross-listing and dual-listing functions are working. The cross-listing function allows for a lot of the information from the first CAP to be copied to linked CAPs. Dual-listed courses do need an individual CAP for each course number. This is because the software works by replacing the information in the Acalog Catalog and the Banner system.

For example, if for Prerequisites, you write "Same as Last Year" then Same as Last Year will be the prerequisites listed. If you leave the information blank, the prerequisites will delete the prerequisites that were previously in the system. If you want the prerequisites to be MATH 2000 you will need to write MATH 2000.

Curriculog is an out of the box product, meaning we have to customize our workflow and processes. It’s not possible to know something is failing until we test it in real-time and make corrections from there.

The University Course Review Committee voted in the December 2022 business meeting to change the acronym from CARF (Course Action Request Form) to CAP (Course Action Propsal).
