Instructions for Completing an Undergraduate Catalog Change Proposal

Part B: Course Change, Additions, Deletions

General Information

Part B is used to make changes to existing courses, add a new course, or permanently delete a course from the catalog. 

PLEASE NOTE:

Part B.1 Changes to Existing Courses: 

The table below is used to propose a change to an existing course.   List ONE course change per table, copying and repeating the table for additional courses.  If no changes are being proposed, please delete the table to conserve space.

Fill in the “Current” column with the current course information from the catalog.
The PDF Catalog may be downloaded by:

      1. going to coursecat.isu.edu
      2. click on "Print Options"
      3. click on "Download a PDF" of the most current Undergraduate Catalog.

Use the appropriate box in the “Changes” column to list ONLY the changes being made to the course. Otherwise, leave the box in the “Changes” column blank.

Please use a red font with strike-out for deletions, and a red font with underline for new text being proposed in the "Changes" column to clearly show the exact changes you want made to the catalog.

Please refer to the Field Definitions page for questions regarding the meaning of any item listed in the Field column of the table.

Note:  Course number changes should be reflected as dropping the existing course (Part B.2) and adding a new course with a new number (Part B.3).

Part B.3. Deleting an Existing Course from the Catalog:

The table below is used to delete an existing course permanently from the catalog.  List ONE course deletion per table, copying and repeating the table for additional courses.  All sections must be complete.    If no courses are being deleted, please delete the table to conserve space.

Note:  Please remember that deleting a course means that it will be deleted from the catalog and cannot be offered again without an additional curriculum proposal.  As such, the department should ensure that any existing students either do not need this course or that other options will be given.  Do not use this option if you are taking a course out of your curriculum or program of study.  Include a teach-out plan for courses being eliminated that are used in programs in previous catalog years.  

Please refer to the Field Definitions page for questions regarding the meaning of any item listed in the Field column of the table.
