BEYOND THE COLLEGE – Undergraduate, (UK Core), Graduate and Senate Councils

100-499 level courses, BS/BA proposals, go to the Undergraduate Council,
then to UK Core Committee if such credit is requested, then to Senate Council.

400G-599 level courses go to both the Undergraduate and Graduate Councils
Undergraduate Council being primarily responsible for 400G level courses and the Graduate Council being primarily responsible for 500 level courses, then to Senate Council.

600-799 level courses, MS/MA/PhD proposals go to the Graduate Council only, then to Senate Council.

NOTE: Minor Change Requests go directly from A&S Associate Dean’s Office to the Senate Council Chair.

8.   Within thirty (30) days of initial receipt of the proposal, the UC, UK Core and Graduate Council(s) will take action or notify the College as to the status and reason for delay.  NOTE: councils do not meet during the summer.   See websites and contacts below.


9.   The Registrar’s Office may be consulted for verification of various data.  The Senate Council office does an initial review then routes the proposal to a Senate committee or to the Senate Council or requests additional information from the originating unit.  If it goes to a Senate committee, the committee chair routes a recommendation to the Senate Council chair who then puts it on the Senate Council agenda.   The Senate Council circulates  the proposal as an agenda item to be acted upon at the Senate Council meeting.  The Senate Council can elect to: forward the item to the Senate or return the item to the Senate committee, or  Undergraduate or Graduate Councils of the Senate.  The Senate Council may forward proposals to the Senate with positive, negative or no recommendation. 


10.   The Senate Council may present the proposal to the Senate live at a meeting as an agenda item or post to the web for review.  The Senate  posts to the web (see below) notice of the proposal to the campus.  If no objection is raised within ten (10) days of notification, these proposals are approved.  Items that are presented to the Senate at a live meeting are not circulated via the web, but are instead voted upon by the Senate on the Senate floor.

COMPLETION – Registrar’s Office

11.   The proposal is then entered into Campus Management by Katie Spradlin in the registrar’s office which maintains the official course history.
