“Nothing endures but change.”                 ~Heraclitus (540 BC-480 BC)

Existing credit courses undergo curriculum revision under the oversight of the program's SAC. In general, the process follows these steps:

  1. Log into the course management tool thru your MyPCC Faculty Tab and search for the course to be revised.
  2. Once the revision is done, save and submit the course into the workflow
  3. Once the SAC Chair, The SAC Admin Liaison and the Curriculum Office reviews the revised course, it will be placed on the next available curriculum committee agaenda.
  4. Following review and recommendation by the Curriculum Committee, the request will go to the Dean of In struction and VP of Academic and Student Affairs.

The curricular revision process can vary depending on the desired change.  Some revisions require committee review, others do not.
