Operational Items

The current approved course action form on file in the Graduate School represents the official status of any course. The following actions can be accomplished by submitting and electronic course action form through Courseleaf Course Inventory Management (CIM):

  • drop course that is not a prerequisite for other courses outside of the curriculum or required in another curriculum. If it is, consultation is required.
  • change in scheduling
  • change in prefix/number (that results in no change in the course description, content, student learning outcomes, etc.)
  • change in title (that results in no change in the course description, content, student learning outcomes, etc.)
  • change in abbreviated title (that results in no change in the course description, content, student learning outcomes, etc.)

Submitting an Operational Item

Operational items must be reviewed by college curriculum committees and college deans before submission to the Dean of the Graduate School. These reviews are steps in the CIM workflow of the proposed course action. To monitor the status of a course action in he workflow, check the course page in CIM.

For more information and User Guides about CIM, please see the CourseLeaf Course Management page of the Graduate School's website.
