2012-2013 Academic Catalog Update Procedure

| February 29, 2012

The process has begun for reviewing and updating information for the 2012-2013 graduate and undergraduate catalogs. Last year, the graduate catalog underwent some major format changes, and based on the positive feedback we have received, the 2012-2013 catalog will maintain that format. The Catalog Committee has reviewed the undergraduate catalog and has made recommendations regarding its format to closely match the format of the graduate catalog.

While the format of the finished catalogs may be changed, the process for revision of catalog information remains largely the same this year. Following is the timeline we expect to follow during this process:

Week of March 5

DeLyle Bowen in Academic Affairs will send files to appropriate schools/colleges/departments for review.

Director of Operations of each school and college will be asked to oversee distribution of files to appropriate departments

Designated persons in the following areas will also receive files for review and update:

Academic Affairs
Finance and Administration
Financial Aid
Enrollment and Student Management

Week of March 19

All reviewed files should be returned to DeLyle Bowen in Academic Affairs, along with confirmation that they have been reviewed.

Any additional changes approved by Curriculum Committee and Graduate Council through March 15 for inclusion in the 2012-2013 catalog will be inserted.

Online catalog will be updated in the website content management system (SiteStudio) to reflect all changes that have been made.
