Curriculum

Programs

New Program Approval

All new programs, and substantively changed programs, must be approved through the SLCC Curriculum process.  This includes approval by the SLCC Cabinet and Board of Trustees, the Utah System of Higher Education Board of Regents, and by the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities.

When qualified teaching faculty identify the need for program changes, the faculty member is responsible for the Program Curriculum Outline (PCO) and moving the proposal through the curriculum process.  Additional faculty, PAC members, transfer partners, and others should provide input on the program proposal.

Program Discontinuation

To discontinue a program of study, an Abbreviated R401  must be submitted.  A teach-out plan must also be in place at SLCC to ensure students who are currently pursuing the program of study are allowed to complete in a reasonable amount of time.  The program notification must be acknowledged through the SLCC Curriculum process and associated governing bodies before the program is discontinued. 

Program Tracking

To view where a program proposal is in the curriculum process, visit the Program Tracking list on the Curriculum 365 Site.

Instructional Program Review

Instructional program review is an integral part of the curriculum process. It is  an opportunity to assess the current status of a program, the changes over the previous  years , and the  intentions for the program in the next five years.  Program review provides an opportunity to celebrate, evaluate, and plan.   In the role as Chair of their respective School Curriculum Committees, Deans are responsible for the timely completion of instructional program review and utilization of the results in academic planning  at SLCC.
