Undergraduate Curriculum

The undergraduate curriculum process is administered by the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee. The Committee examines and evaluates all undergraduate curricular offerings with the exception of general education offerings.

We encourage faculty to meet with us prior to developing proposals so that we may offer guidance throughout the process. Contact us at 606-783-2003 to schedule an appointment. Curriculum proposals must be received by the Committee in sufficient time to be heard by the end of the curriculum cycle.
The Office of Undergraduate Education and Student Success offers individual assistance with the curriculum process. To ensure that you are following the proper path, please contact undergraduate@moreheadstate.edu or call 606-783-2003 to discuss your proposal and receive the latest version of the appropriate form via email.

This process includes multiple steps.  Contact the Office of Undergraduate Education and Student Success at 606-783-2003 before beginning.

  2. Pre-proposal - The Associate Vice President for Undergraduate Education and Student Success will notify the initiator when the proposal is posted to the CPE website.
