After importing information from the catalog and completing all required fields marked with an *, you should immediately launch your form. It is a system requirement to launch each form before making edits to the course or program information. Launching is like enabling the track-change button in a Microsoft Word document as it allows Curriculog to capture or “track” each edit that is made to the existing information. Reviewers will utilize the “mark-up” function to review the edits. Please follow the How do I Launch instructions (PDF).
How and when do I approve my form?
After importing, launching, and making edits to a form, you should approve your forms. Approving proposals will move them to the next step in the approval workflow and others will begin reviewing. All forms in a curriculum package should be approved at the same time to ensure that reviewers receive a complete and comprehensive proposal. follow the Approving Proposals document (PDF) for instructions on how to approve.
How do I determine the approval workflow my Curriculog™ proposal has to go through?
Each form in Curriculog™ lists the approval workflow the form must complete. This workflow is set after forms are launched. To view the approval workflow, open your form and click the “Workflow Status” button on the right-hand side of the screen.

What are the differences between Level I, II, and III curriculum changes?

The levels of approval vary from only needing approval from the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee (UCC)/Graduate Curriculum Committee (GCC) to needing approval from the UNC System Office and/or the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC). For more information on the approval process and the types of revisions that fall under each level please refer to Level I, II, III Curriculum Changes (PDF) document.

Each Curriculog™ form has an impact section that has step-by-step instructions on how to determine if the curricular action that is being proposed impacts another department. These instructions differ depending on the form being completed, so please refer to the instructions within the individual form. Refer to the following resources to determine the impacts of new courses (PDF), course revisions (PDF), and program revisions (PDF).
How do I find out who to notify when my course or program revisions impact another department?
