Curriculum, Course and Program Changes

The Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President is responsible for obtaining appropriate approval and/or providing notification for academic actions to the Idaho State Board of Education, the Idaho State Department of Education, and the University’s regional accrediting body, the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities. In conjunction, the Registrar’s Office is responsible for curricular requirements and reporting and for overseeing the University Curriculum Committee. Together these two offices manage the internal process for curricular and program changes and required external reporting.
