common mistakes
Prerequisites – wording needs to be accurate
  • Which Calendar are you working from? Does it include recent curriculum updates?
  • Inclusiveness –
    • does change apply to ALL your departments programs?
  • Choice of new course numbers (already in use?)
  • Asking for retroactive changes to be made in the Calendar
  • Not consulting in advance regarding process issues
Common Mistakes
