Course and Curriculum Approval

A proposal is necessary for course and curriculum changes. These proposals are submitted via Curriculog, the automated course/curriculum software currently used by K-State. Curriculog automates the workflow based on the type of proposal being submitted. At any stage during the approval process, a reviewing body can refer the proposal back to the previous reviewing body, and/or may consult with the originating department contact person.  The chain of approval for the various types of proposals is described in the Approval, Routing, and Notification Policies document below.
