Graduate Curriculum Committee Meeting Dates and Agenda Deadlines
The Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) meets the second Thursday of each month within fall and spring semesters to review requests for new graduate courses and proposed revisions to existing graduate courses within the current curriculum.
To give the GCC members ample time to consider such comprehensive materials, the agenda is distributed to the committee members one week in advance of the upcoming meeting. Suggested submission dates listed below are set at least ten workdays further in advance. Accordingly, it is recommended proposals are submitted through the online approval system to the Graduate Curriculum level at least three to four business weeks in advance of the intended meeting date. Submitting by the suggested dates does not ensure a proposal will be on the next agenda, however. Depending upon any issues found and the number of proposals in the queue, approval may be delayed, requiring multiple revisions during the GCC approval process. Following all submission guidelines provided by your college's academic curriculum committee and the UF Syllabus Guidelines will undoubtedly ensure a smoother submission process.
We highly encourage beginning the process early and after receiving guidance from the Graduate School Editorial Office. Due to extensive processing and because proposals must be approved at least one term in advance via multiple units throughout the entire University, submitting courses and revisions at least one year in advance of the intended effective date is highly recommended.
