How to move a proposal through the CAC

The CAC Division Rep and Articulation Officer identify programs, certificates and/or skill competency awards, associated with the proposed curriculum, that will require an updated at the same time. Phase I - The Build could take the entire semester to complete or longer, especially if a program modification is involved.

Phase I - The Build approval steps

Phase II - Local Approval

The CAC Division Rep and Originator bring forth the new/modified curriculum to the CAC for Hearing and Action. Courses that require current adjustments to programs, certificates or skill competency awards will be required to bring program modifications forward at the same time.

Hearing and Action meetings are by invite and are held on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month during the Fall/Spring semester. Only proposals that have completed Phase I and have necessary program adjustments completed will be invited to the CAC Hearing/Action meeting.
