New Course Deadlines

New General Education Submission Deadlines – All Categories

In order to review course proposals for possible approval early enough to include them in the dynamic course schedule, the General Education Council (GECo) has set deadlines.

Friday 27 September 2019 for courses to be reviewed in Fall 2019

Friday 21 February 2020 for courses to be reviewed in Spring 2020

Submissions received after the deadlines will be reviewed as time allows.

 We encourage faculty to consult members of GECo at any point.  However, please note that GECo will only consider for approval courses that have been approved through all prior levels of governance.  As such, you should plan for additional time for these earlier levels of review.  Please also keep in mind that while GECo approves courses, it is not involved in the scheduling of courses.

Course approval forms for all general education, including ECCE, categories are online at  Please send materials to Brian Moore in MS PAC 525.  Please also notify Ken Mulliken ( via email of your submission.
