Deadline for Fall 2022 New Course Proposals

The deadline for proposals for new courses to be offered in the Fall 2022 semester is Tuesday, February 1. APSC must take those course proposals to the March Faculty Meeting in order to secure approval for their offering. The new course proposal form, available as a fillable online form on the Website at http://www.dickinson.edu/info/20061/academic_program_and_standards_committee/771/curriculum_revisions), should be completed no later than February 1. Clicking “submit form” will automatically email the completed form to apsc@dickinson.edu.
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. In order to give the Committee sufficient information about these courses, however, faculty should fill in the pertinent information on the course proposal form, marking "one-time-only" prominently on the top of the form.
