The Office of the Registrar is the starting point for:
New plans/majors, minors and certificates
Requirement changes for majors, minors, and certificates
Dropping courses, majors, minors, and certificates
Extending majors, minors, and certificates, to other campuses
Curricular changes are designated as major or minor. Major curricular change requests must be approved by Catalog Subcommittee, Academic Affairs or Graduate Studies Committee, and Faculty Senate. Minor curricular changes are compiled by the Registrar's Office and submitted directly to Faculty Senate.
The creation of a new degree, extending a degree to a new campus, moving, consolidating, eliminating, or renaming an existing degree starts at the Provost Office. Click here for more information.
Requests to add a UCORE designator to a new or existing course start with the UCORE Committee. Once approved by the UCORE Committee, new coursework and courses requesting major revisions receive a full review by the Catalog Subcommittee. Existing courses seeking a UCORE designation which are approved by the UCORE committee are entered onto a UCORE bulletin, which the Catalog Subcommittee approves and sends on to the Academic Affairs Committee. Information on requesting UCORE status can be found on the UCOREwebsite
The WSU Syllabus website provides the most current information regarding the University syllabus, approved by the Faculty Senate in Feburary, 2023. The Course syllabus should include a statement and link to the University syllabus.
