Curriculum Forms

The following forms should be used for curriculum requests.  As these forms may be updated periodically, please, access the forms through this web site each time a request is made, rather than saving the forms permanently to your computer or T-drive.

Curriculum Forms

College Curriculum Report (Form A) is to be used to provide an overview of the curriculum recommendations.  For each submission point (Fall and Spring), a single Form A should be prepared at the level of the dean and should encompass a summary of all changes requested for each department.  Form A provides a brief justification for the addition or deletion of courses and changes in course prefix, title, and/or number.  Please be aware that for each addition of a new course, a Form B must also be attached.  (Note: If a department does not have requested changes in an area (i.e. course prefix), please, insert the term "none.")  

New Course Addition Request (Form B) is to be used to support each request for a new course.  Form B must be completed in its entirety, thus eliminating the need to provide a syllabus.

The Core Curriculum Course Proposal Form is to be used to request changes in the baccalaureate core.

The New Certificate Program Form is to be used to propose an undergraduate or graduate certificate.  In addition to this form, the University Curriculum Committee requires the submission of a Certificate Narrative, which contains the following information: description/overview, justification of need, target demographics, admission requirements, and curriculum.  (Note: All courses associated with the certificate must already be in SHSU's course inventory or going through the approval process simultaneously with the proposed certificate).

The New Degree Program Proposal Form is to be used to propose a new bachelor or master's degree program.

The Online Program Request Form is to be used to request that a new program or an existing program be delivered either electronic-to-individuals (i.e., online), electronic-to-groups, or off-campus face-to-face.

The New Doctoral Program Proposal Form is to be used to propose a new doctoral degree program.  Please, be aware that the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board requires notification of intent to offer a new doctoral degree a minimum of one year prior to the submission of a proposal. 

The New Online Doctoral Program Proposal Form is to be used to propose a new online doctoral degree program.

The Title Change Request Form is to be used to request a change to the title (name) of an existing degree program.  The degree program must already be in SHSU's program inventory.  A degree program title consists of the following two parts: 1) degree designation, such as Bachelor of Science (BS), Master of Arts (MA), or Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and 2) name of the discipline, such as History, Mechanical Engineering, or Zoology.  (Note: This request also requires the submission of a Board Motion.)

The CIP Code Change Request Form is to be used to request a change to the Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code of an existing degree program, meaning the degree program must already be on SHSU's program inventory.  (Note: This request also requires the submission of a Board Motion.)

The Semester Credit Hour (SCH) Change Request Form is to be used to request a change in the number of semester credit hours (SCH) required for a degree program already on SHSU's program inventory.  (Note: This request also requires the submission of a Board Motion.)

The Administrative Unit Change Request Form is to be used to request a change to an academic administrative unit.  Administrative changes include the creation of new administrative units--colleges, schools, divisions, departments--as well as changes to existing administrative units, such as a name change, consolidation of existing units, or movement of a program into another unit.  (Note: This request also requires the submission of a Board Motion.)
