Procedures for adding new courses and programs to the curriculum and for making substantial or unsubstantial changes to existing curriculum have been developed to ensure an orderly, efficient means of meeting local and state requirements in accordance with the California Education Code and Title 5 of the California Code of Regulations. It is understood that, at each step, the documents can be returned to the originator(s) for further information or modification before they are forwarded to the next step in the approval process.







For all submissions to Tech Review, a memo from the Division Chair is required.

Course related submissions require an updated course outline of record and a course application along with the memo.

Program submissions require a Program Submission Requirements form, Narrative, and a TMC template (for ADTs only) along with the memo.
