The undergraduate curriculum process is administered by the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee
. The Committee examines and evaluates all undergraduate curricular offerings with the exception of general education offerings.
We encourage faculty to meet with us prior to developing proposals so that we may offer guidance throughout the process. Contact us
at 606-783-2003 to schedule an appointment. Curriculum proposals must be received by the Committee in sufficient time to be heard at the March meeting, to ensure that changes appear in the fall catalog.

This process includes multiple steps. Contact the Office of Academic Programs
at 606-783-2003 before beginning.
- Notification of Intent - The CPE Academic Programs Liaison must post the notification of intent at least 6 months prior to the submission of the pre-proposal.
- Pre-proposal - The Associate Vice President for Academic Affairs will notify the initiator when the proposal is posted to the CPE website.
