Addition of a General Education or Writing Requirement designation may only be requested for existing courses or proposed courses that have already been approved by the University Curriculum Committee (i.e., SCNS approval may be pending). Modification or removal of a General Education or Writing Requirement designation may be requested at any time.
As of October 2018, the General Education Committee (GEC) has moved the deadline for submissions to the Wednesday after the previous GEC meeting. This adjustment was made to allow for more time for review of submissions and more time for submitters to respond to any GEC review subcommittee comments prior to the monthly meeting. GEC meetings are held on the 1st Friday of each month in the Fall and Spring semesters, submissions must be completed, entered into the Academic Approval Tracking System, and approved by the Department and College prior to the Wednesday deadline in order to appear on the following month's agenda.
The academic approval tracking system will automatically route the request (including all accompanying forms and documents) to the following groups for approval and/or notification.
If you have questions, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Affairs at 392-1303. When you have prepared the required documents, click the start button below to enter the approval tracking system (requires GatorLink login).
