Course Approval Process
The University is using the new Curriculum Inventory Management (CIM). The chart above (also available as a PDF) outlines the GFS process for course approvals. See the link below for the CIM system. Graduate-level courses must be taught by a member of the Graduate Faculty (University of Missouri Graduate Faculty and Board of Curators 1921).
Use this link to access the new Curriculum Inventory Management (CIM) system where you can submit "Propose New Course" or "Edit Course". When you click on the link above, you will be directed to log in using your MU username and password. If you have questions contact firstname.lastname@example.org. More details are provided on the Registrar's website.
For a deleted or modified course, the GFS will also be using the Curriculum Inventory System (CIM) referred to above. These types of changes do not require approval of the entire senate.
Topics courses (only) may be submitted to the Registrar’s office without prior approval by the Graduate Faculty Senate. The Senate urges that programs and departments teach courses only up to five times prior to seeking permanent course status.
For topics courses at the graduate level, please email email@example.com to submit specific topic title. If the course is cross-leveled (4000-level/7000-level) you will still need to complete an Undergraduate Proposed Topics Form for the undergraduate portion.
