NEW COURSE GUIDES/RESOURCES:
HOW TO SUBMIT A NEW COURSE PROPOSAL:
1. Download the CAS New Course Proposal Form (go to File -> Download). See additional information on our Curricular proposals page if this course is part of a new or revised program. If you are proposing a fully online course, see the Appendix information in the proposal form and note that there is a pre-UCC review by the CAS Technology-Enhanced Education Committee. Also, if your syllabus is written in a language other than English, the UCC would appreciate having the original version, as well as a version with as much text translated into English as possible.
2. Submit your proposal via the CAS DUS shared drive: double click the UCC Proposals folder, and then double click the appropriate (Month) 2022 or 2023 UCC Drop Box folder. Create a folder with the name of your department, and upload your course proposal form and syllabus.
3. The UCC will review your course and the faculty co-chairs of the UCC will send you an email with its decision.
4. UCC approves will go into a report for final approval at the next full FAS faculty meeting. New courses are approved officially only after this second step.
5. The Office of Academic Affairs submits approved courses to the Registrar for entry into Albert.
6. CAS Academic Affairs updates the CAS Bulletin.
PROPOSING A FULLY ONLINE SECTION OF AN EXISTING COURSE:
1. Existing courses that propose to have a fully online section must be endorsed by the sponsoring department. The department will confirm with CAS about the overall number of online courses being offered to ensure that we meet CAS and NY State policies.
2. Prior to scheduling an online section of an existing course, please submit the syllabus for the online version to firstname.lastname@example.org. The instructor should submit the syllabus at least one month before the scheduling deadline for a given term.
3. After submission, an Academic Affairs team member will reach out to the instructor to arrange a brief consultation with the FAS Office of Educational Technology staff to advise on any educational technoloy considerations.
4. After the FAS Office of Educational Technology consultation, the CAS Technology-Enhanced Education Committee will review the syllabus and make any recommendations for online modality. Please note that this step is not a content review, as the UCC previously approved the course as a permanent offering.
5. After the CAS Technology-Enhanced Education Committee issues its support, the course can be scheduled in CLSS.
