Catalog Editing Handouts and Presentations
- Make sure all edited courses have been submitted using Save and Submit. A course change cannot be processed unless it's submitted to workflow.
- Check for clarity in course descriptions. Avoid phrases such as "This course will." Use active tense whenever possible.
- New courses: indicate last successful offering as an experimental course. If it's required in a program, indicate the program or major.
- Justification for change: be specific about what's changed in the course. This data is used in the course change report to the university.
Items to check for:
Check that all website links work going to the correct website.
Curriculum grids: note "Courses Not Found" in red boxes in curriculum tables. You will need to reconcile these later in the catalog cycle. The system does not automatically update or delete them.
Check that total credits in each requirement in the degree add up to equal the correct number for your degree.
Check College Curriculum section for any edits to your specific sections.
Catalog editor and degree audit template person should work together checking that the catalog curriculum section and department degree audit template match.
