Graduate Course Modifications

Modifications of existing graduate courses consist of minor changes to the calendar description, course title and/or grading system.

Changes to course number, credit hours, course content, or short course title will constitute the course receiving a new number (which consists of deleting the current course and introducing a new course).

Required Information (for Course Modifications only)

  • Current calendar course title and/or description
  • Proposed new calendar course title and/or description – calendar description must not exceed 4 lines, 75 characters per line
  • Justification for modification
