Courses

To create or modify a course, please follow the instructions below.

How to create a new course:

You must first complete or provide the following documents:

  1. UCC1 form, which is also available at Academic Approval Tracking. For illustration, we're providing an example. For instructions on how to write proper course titles, please consult these Detailed Course Instructions.
  2. Syllabus Checklist and Complete Syllabus. See the University of Florida Policy on Course Syllabi (PDF) and syllabus templates. You may find it most helpful to use the following Complete Syllabus example (Word).
  3. External Consultation form. This form should be included only in cases of actual or perceived overlap with other departments or colleges. We're providing this example.

Fill out the forms completely and save on your computer. You may find the Submission Instructions helpful.

Start the Approval Process for Undergraduate courses or Graduate courses. You'll be prompted to sign in with your GatorLink user name and password. There are detailed steps for submission, and you'll choose which department will begin the review process. Once the department curriculum committee has approved the new course proposal and all comments from consultations have been received, the Chair/director can approve the on-line UCC1 with the appropriate attachments. The request will be forwarded automatically to the College Curriculum Committee. Then there will be Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS) approval, followed by Student Academic Support System Implementation.

How to modify an existing course:

You must first complete or provide the following documents:

  1. UCC2 form. We provide this example.
  2. Syllabus Checklist and Complete Syllabus. Include a syllabus only for course description changes or credit hour changes. Complete Syllabus example (PDF) or Word version.
  3. External Consultation form (include in case of actual or perceived overlap with other departments or colleges). See example.

Fill out the forms completely and save on your computer. Read Submission Instructions if needed.
