The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC)
The Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC) evaluates all new courses to be offered for credit by the College of Arts and Science (CAS), whether at the Washington Square campus or at an NYU global site. It also reviews all new majors and minors, as well as changes/revisions to existing majors and minors. Contact Dean Armanda Lewis for questions about program revisions.

HOW TO SUBMIT A PROGRAM REVISION PROPOSAL:
1. Contact Associate Dean of Academic Affairs, Armanda Lewis (firstname.lastname@example.org), for a consultation about proposed revisions prior to submission to the UCC. Some revisions to majors will require registration with NY State. This consultation will establish a timeline and next steps. We will also work with the Office of the Provost to alert them of any potential changes to the major.
2. Download the CAS Revision Memo Template.
3. Submit your proposal on NYU Classes: click Resources on the left, look for the (Month) 2020 or 2021 UCC Drop Box folder, create a folder for your department, and upload your proposal form and syllabi. The September 2020 UCC Drop Box can serve as your guide.
4. The UCC will review the revision proposal and the faculty co-chairs of the UCC will send you an email with its decision.
5. Revisions that the UCC approves will go into a report for final approval at the next full FAS faculty meeting. Minor revisions are approved officially only after this second step. Major revisions not requiring NY State approval are also approved after this step.
6. CAS Academic Affairs will notify the University Program Committee (UPC) as a point of information.
7. For major revisions that require NY State approval, CAS Academic Affairs will work with the department to submit to NY State. These major revision proposals are officially approved only after NY State approval is finalized.
8. The Office of Academic Affairs submits approved revisons to the Registrar for entry into Albert.
9. CAS Academic Affairs updates CAS Bulletin and department updates external materials reflecting the revisions.
