Graduate Curriculum Committee

The following links provide more information about members, coordinators, and meeting dates of the Graduate Curriculum Committee:

Chaired by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) oversees the process of creating new graduate courses and integrating them into the State of Florida’s Common Course Numbering System (SCNS).  Composed of six Graduate Faculty members representing various graduate academic disciplines, the GCC assists the Associate Dean in reviewing requests for new courses and course modifications.  Proposals must be submitted through UF’s Academic Approval Tracking System.

The Academic Approval Tracking System transmits requests for new courses and course changes throughout each approval process stage.  All course change proposals and new course requests must be uploaded and submitted using this system.  All final decisions will be communicated directly back to the units via the system.  Per the request of the Graduate Curriculum Committee members, an updated and current syllabus must accompany all requests for new graduate courses.  An example syllabus should be included for most course modifications as well.  This submission is required when requesting updates to the course description, lab code, or credit hours.  Please ensure the syllabus provided meets all UF Syllabus Requirements.  A syllabus with issues and a lack of appropriate consults or sign-offs accompanying the request for a new course will assuredly delay the approval of the course proposal submitted for review by the committee.

During the fall and spring semesters of the academic year, the Graduate Curriculum Committee meets on the second Thursday of each month.  Due to the nature of faculty appointments and the general lack of proposal items, the committee usually is not scheduled to meet during the summer semesters.
