Deadline for New Course Proposals for Fall 2021

If you plan to offer any new courses in the Fall 2021 Semester, APSC must take those course proposals to the March Faculty Meeting in order to secure approval for their offering. The new course proposal online form, available on the committee website at (http://www.dickinson.edu/info/20061/academic_program_and_standards_committee/771/curriculum_revisions), should be completed and submitted by February 1.

Faculty may experiment with a new course by requesting that it be considered a "one-time-only" offering. Such courses require only the approval of APSC, not the entire faculty, but should also be submitted by the February 1 deadline. Please indicate "one-time-only" prominently on the top of the form.
