Programs

Proposals for new courses and programs, as well as proposals for changes to existing courses and programs, are made through the online curriculum management system Curriculog.

Visit the myUSF Curriculog page for more information.

For an overview of how programs are reviewed and approved, and by whom, see the Curriculum Review Process page.

Propose a new academic program

The steps in the review and approval process, and the materials you need to prepare for submission, can be seen within Curriculog, where all program proposals are submitted and housed.

In summary, a new program is first submitted via Curriculog as an Intent to Propose, along with a Budget Proposal; this is reviewed by the Dean’s Office and then the Provost’s Office. Once it has been approved by the Provost to move to the next stage of consideration, a more comprehensive New Program proposal is submitted via Curriculog; this is reviewed by the Dean’s Office and the College Curriculum Committee and then moves to the Sr. Vice Provost for Academic Affairs for final review.

Propose changes to an existing academic program

The steps in the review and approval process, and the materials you need to prepare for submission, can be seen within Curriculog, where all program proposals are submitted and housed.

In summary, a program change proposal is submitted via Curriculog and reviewed by the Dean’s Office. If the program change does not involve changes to the program’s degree requirements, the Dean’s Office approval completes the process. If the proposal involves any changes to the program’s degree requirements, it is then reviewed by the College Curriculum Committee before it moves to the Sr. Vice Provost for Academic Affairs for final review.
