Course Status in the Curriculum

Courses within the curriculum are classified as experimental, active, inactive or terminated. To change the classification or status of the course, departments should follow these directives.

  1. To change a course from experimental to active, follow the guidelines described in Review for Experimental Course Proposals.
  2. To change a course from active to inactive, send a memo to the Associate Academic Dean, Curriculum, requesting this change. Inactive courses may be activated by the same process, and do not need to be reviewed by the Curriculum Committee.
  3. To change a course from active to terminated, send a memo to the Associate Academic Dean, Curriculum, requesting this change. Terminated courses remain in the computer catalog historic file; terminated course numbers may not be reused. To change a terminated course to an active course, departments need to resubmit the course as a new course and complete the review process.

If you have questions, contact Jan Garfield, at jgarfield@popmail.colum.edu or your Curriculum Committee departmental representative.
