The CAS Curriculum Committee (CASCC) reviews undergraduate new course proposals, changes in undergraduate degree requirements, and new undergraduate degree proposals. Upon CASCC approval, proposals are forwarded to the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education for final University approval and further processing with SUNY.
Undergraduate New Course Proposals are submitted electronically by filling out the online form. The form requires UB log in authentication. When filling in the information on the “Contacts” tab of the online form, proposers must provide the email of their Department Chair, and add Stefanos Papazaharias (email address firstname.lastname@example.org) in the area for Associate Dean.
Undergraduate Curriculum Changes to Existing Degree Programs
If the proposed changes affect a total number of credits that is less than 1/3 of the credits required for the degree, the proposal can follow the format at https://undergrad.buffalo.edu/content/undergrad/faculty-staff-pw/curriculum/program.html. All other revisions, or revisions to a program that leads to licensure, need to use the SUNY form: Program Revision Proposal: Changes to an Existing Program.
Proposals for New Minor should follow the Template for Proposing New Undergraduate Minor (DOCX). Revisions to a Currently Approved Minor should follow the Template for Revising Undergraduate Minor (DOCX).
