In order to process the proposals, the proponents of curriculum change should download the appropriate forms by clicking on their titles below.
The Curriculum Team needs to assess some initial information about the curriculum change to be proposed. If the proposing department does not have an outline or a summary of the new program or program change, the first step is to fill the Curriculum Change Initial Request Form. This form should be used for all types of curriculum changes: new programs, category 1 and category 2.
2) Change to Course or Program (2-column) Form
Most of the instructions you will need to fill out a Change to Course or Program (2-column) form appear on the form itself. Examples of how to properly format a Calendar change using this form can be found in our Examples of UBC Curriculum Proposal Form. A single form is used for all types of curriculum changes.
This form is for consulting colleagues, departments and/or Faculties who may be affected by, or interested in, the proposed curriculum changes.
This form is used to indicate the adequacy of Library needs. The Library Consultants list is maintained on the UBC Library website. The approval of the University Librarian must be indicated on the Budgetary Impact of Curriculum Proposals form if the course cannot be supported with existing Library resources.
The adequacy of the available resources to permit the proposal to be implemented must be indicated on the Budgetary Impact of Curriculum Change form. All Budgetary Impact of Curriculum Change forms must be signed by the Department Head (or equivalent) and the Dean of the proposing unit.
If the Budgetary Impact of Curriculum Change form indicates that additional budget is required to implement the curriculum change, the signature of the Provost (or designate) is required.
If the Library Consultation form indicates that additional Library resources are required to support the proposal, the signature of the University Librarian must be obtained on the Budgetary Impact of Curriculum Change form.
