Proposing Core Courses

Any member of the faculty is welcome to propose new Core courses or changes to previously approved courses. Begin by talking with the head of your academic unit and also to the Academic Program Liaison (APL) in your college or school. The APL has experience with academic program actions and can provide guidance on how to develop your idea and take it through the entire University Faculty Senate approval process.

Procedures and guidelines for proposing a new course or course change are available from the Office of Academic Programs. Note that the Carolina Core Approval Committee will evaluate the proposed course ensuring that it meets all student achievements for the Core learning outcome, the course is at the 100 or 200 level, the course is open to all students (although there can be pre- or co-requisites and major-specific sections), and that the courses is appropriate for the proposing academic unit to teach.

To submit a Carolina Core course or course change for approval, individuals who have authority to submit proposals (who can be identified by the Academic Program or the APL) start a new proposal in Academic Programs Proposal System (APPS). APPS is a web-based electronic submission and approval system developed to facilitate the submission and approval process for course and program curriculum forms.
