How to Move a Proposal Through the CAC
There are 15 different tabs/forms in currIQunet to assist an Originator in building a Chancellor’s Office approved Course Outline of Record. During Phase I -The Build, the Originator creates a proposal in currIQunet and works with their CAC Division Rep to create a State approvable proposal. The originator meets with the Articulation Officer when building the course proposal to address any questions or concerns related to the transferability and articulation of the course to four-year universities.
The CAC Division Rep and Articulation Officer identify programs, certificates and/or skill competency awards, associated with the proposed curriculum, that will require an update at the same time. Phase I - The Build could take the entire semester to complete or longer, especially if a program modification is involved.
Phase I - The Build approval steps
- Department Chair (Department supported)
- CAC Division Rep (The CAC Rep will not move the proposal forward until it is completed. Proposals that have no forward movement will be moved back into the Draft status)
- Articulation, SLO, Distance Ed
- Department Chair (approval)
- Division Dean (approval)
The CAC Division Rep and Originator bring forth the new/modified curriculum to the CAC for Hearing and Action. Courses that require current adjustments to programs, certificates or skill competency awards will be required to bring program modifications forward at the same time.
Hearing and Action meetings are by invite and are held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month during the Fall/Spring semester. Only proposals that have completed Phase I and have necessary program adjustments completed will be invited to the CAC Hearing/Action meeting.
Phase II - Local Approval
- Publication Editor
- CAC Chair, Vice Chair
- EVP, Library Director
Once the proposal has a B.O.T. date, the information is uploaded into COCI2.0 at the Chancellor’s Office. When a control number is issued, the proposal is implemented in curricunet and made Active. This Active course’s information is sent to Scheduling and the course information is created or updated in Banner.
Phase III - Implementation - approval process
