Curricular changes should be approved and submitted by the department chair to the CLAS Educational Policies and Curriculum Committee (EPCC). All proposals are submitted electronically to the Dean’s Office staff liaison to EPCC, who will then distribute the proposals to the committee members. For new degree program proposals, which are often 30+ pages, the committee requests that seven (7) complete hard copies be delivered to the Dean's Office, as well as sent electronically. Once a minor, certificate or option is approved, contact the EPCC liaison to start the process for assigning an CU-SIS code so that it will be recorded on the transcript.
The EPCC has established guidelines for minors, certificates and options within majors/degrees, and proposals for these must conform to these guidelines to be reviewed by the committee. Meeting these minimum standards does not guarantee EPCC approval, since EPCC will still play the role of insuring the program quality: that it coheres as a whole; that it is an appropriate CU Denver minor, certificate or option; and that it does not duplicate other offerings.
