Important Deadlines

Requests that involve new courses, changes to existing courses, course withdrawals, or one-time course offerings must be received by the Office of the University Registrar (OUR) by the deadlines below. (For more information about the curricular process, please see section V of the ASC Operations Manual here.) If you have questions regarding the timing of a specific request, please reach out to a member of the ASCCAS staff and we will happily discuss your options. 

We recommend that proposals going through the College of the Arts and Sciences curricular approval process (i.e., those proposals that need to be reviewed by a faculty panel) be submitted (via curriculum.osu.edu) in time to reach the Curriculum and Assessment Services at least 8-10 weeks before OUR deadlines below. For One-Time course offerings, we recommend submitting proposals at least 1-2 weeks prior to the deadlines. Please keep in mind that curricular committees do not meet during the summer or university observed holiday/breaks. We will do everything possible to make sure requests reach OUR on time.
