Instructions | Change Forms



Southeastern's University Curriculum Council (UCC) is the final committee to review all curriculum changes and makes recommendations directly to the Provost. Regardless of the recommendation from the UCC, the Provost makes the final curricular decision for all additions, deletions and changes to the University Catalog. The request forms below are to be used by Departments to request approval from the Provost through the curriculum review process.

The University Curriculum Council meets at 2:00 pm on the last Monday of January, February, March, April, August, September, October, and November. Agenda items must be submitted by the date listed in the table below to be considered at that month's meeting. If that date is a holiday, the forms are then due on the first day the University is open for business following the holiday. The calendar below indicates when Curriculum Change Request Forms must be received by the Chair of the UCC.
