University Studies Program (USP) Curricular Review and Approval Process
Courses are not automatically in the USP if they are currently designated as "general education." Though the preliminary course identification has been completed, formal curricular review and approval needs to occur.
By August 3, 2012, Quest I and Explore course submissions (a modified Form A, which will soon be available online) need to leave the department/program. (Quest II, III and Connect courses will have later submission dates.) Note that professional development and other support will be available to assist departmental/program readiness.
There are two different review processes: 1) a process for existing courses that will be modified slightly or submitted "as is" and 2) a process for brand new courses.
