Curriculum Submission Guide

The Guide to Curriculum Submissions for UBC Vancouver is designed to assist Faculty Curriculum Chairs as well as those who frequently work with curriculum changes. The guide outlines the steps necessary for curriculum approval at UBC Vancouver, and is maintained by the Vancouver Senate Curriculum Committee and the Senate Secretariat.

All proposed changes to curricula must be approved by the Vancouver Senate before they can be implemented. This includes new courses, changes to existing programs and/or courses, and the closing of courses and discontinuation of programs.  Approval by the Ministry of Advanced Education is also required for new degree programs, new majors, new specializations, and some new minors.

Curriculum proposals should be submitted electronically with all relevant forms:
