The below table lists the Experimental Course (EC), Course Change (CC), Certificate Change (CT), and Degree Change (DC) form curricula deadlines during Academic Year 2022-2023, followed by explanation of terms and several additional notes.
Affecting CC forms are those that have potential to negatively affect students by either making the prerequisites of an existing permanent course more restrictive or substantially altering an existing permanent course. Affecting CC forms need to be approved by Faculty Senate (FS) before the advising week for the first semester in which they are to be in effect and be actually offered.
Non-affecting CC forms make course changes that do not have the potential to negatively affect students because either they are creating a new permanent course or they do not make the prerequisites of an existing permanent course more restrictive nor do they substantially alter an existing permanent course.
The department submission to Registrar deadline as well as the DSCC to Registrar deadline are by noon of the listed dates. All forms need to be electronically submitted. The links to those forms are located at: http://registrar.mst.edu/currcom/forms/.
The department submission to Registrar deadlines are typically two weeks prior to the deadlines for Discipline Specific Curricula Committees (DSCCs) to submit approved forms to the CCC secretary, in order to give DSCCs sufficient processing time.
Meeting the department submission to Registrar deadlines does not guarantee making the designated CCC meeting agenda, just makes it more likely; many factors can influence DSCC processing time; departments are advised to make sure that forms are filled out correctly and completely, e.g., including any/all approvals in order to minimize delays.
Missing the department submission to Registrar deadlines does not guarantee it won't make the designated CCC meeting agenda, just makes it less likely; the CCC secretary and DSCC chairs do their best to process forms in a timely manner.
