Non-Expedited Course and Curriculum

  • Course number changes outside the current level.
  • Course description changes reflecting a “rewrite” in the curriculum for the department and the major.
  • Change in the course delivery method (lec, seminar, etc.).
  • Dividing a course into two or more courses.
  • Combining two or more courses into one course.
  • Deleting a course if it impacts students outside the college.
  • Adding a new course.
  • Adding a K-State 8 tag to a course (undergraduate only)
