You can obtain a cover sheet from your college curriculum representatives to the UCC or from your department secretary, or you can download one from this Web site. There are two formats available: a Microsoft Word document or a PDF document. Each format has its advantages and disadvantages as explained below.

Every curriculum proposal (new courses, changes to existing courses, check sheet revisions, etc.) must be accompanied by a "cover sheet" detailing the exact nature of the proposal. Please use the following established colors for all cover sheets, including all duplicate copies.
Please use cover sheets revised: UCC 08/10.
For reference purposes, each proposal traditionally has been given a seven character code such as LAS 0813. This coding is done according to a three part scheme: three letters, followed by two digits, followed by two more digits.
The first three letters of the code refer to the unit submitting the proposal:
The next two digits refer to the current academic year, specifically the last two digits of the current academic year's spring semester. The last two digits (use a leading zero) refer to the sequence of consideration within the college. That is, the first course considered by a college in the academic year is numbered "01, the next is numbered "02, etc. Since this coding scheme is indigenous to each college, each college curriculum committee should code proposals before sending them on to UCC. Each proposal will retain the proposal number given by the originating unit as it proceeds through the routing process.
