Note: Before you request a curriculum change, please understanding the following:
You may also be asked to submit a sample grading rubric. Add the grading rubric to your syllabus save it all as a PDF.
Access the Curriculum Request Application (CRA) at http://campus.fsu.edu/curriculum. You will be asked to login with your FSUID and password if you are not already logged in. You can also access the application from the Faculty Senate page and the Liberal Studies for the 21st Century website.
Begin here to submit a change request.
You may also view curriculum information on each version currently in the database.
If a course has the status of “ACTIVE” or “ACTIVE FUTURE TERM” you may choose “Change” to begin a formal change request on that version of the course.
Note: Whatever version you choose to make a change to will be the BASE curriculum for all the changes you make. Be cautious about submitting changes to courses with multiple ACTIVE FUTURE TERM versions. Change requests approved for one version will not apply to other ACTIVE FUTURE TERM versions of the course, even if you change the effective date. It is also possible to accidentally overwrite curriculum changes if you are not careful when choosing the effective date.
Adding Liberal Studies or Upper-Division Competencies:
If the course does NOT have liberal studies or upper-division competencies, you will get a choice to add them after you click change. If you are making a change to add these designations to a course that does not currently have them, you must click the check box, THEN click continue.
If the course already has them, but you want to make changes you will not get this page - but one that asks you if you want to remove all designations.
Use this check box to REMOVE ALL designations from the course.
DO NOT check the box to remove them if you are making changes or additions to the designations. You will make changes, add, or remove designations in Step 1, below: Course Information Form.
Note: The baseline data received from legacy system does not contain all the information currently required for a curriculum request. If this is the first change to a “baseline” course, please check the course information and delivery method forms carefully to fill in missing data. This is ESPECIALLY true with pre- and co-requisites. This form requires you use only the 3 letter prefix and four numbers, no spaces, separated by another with a comma. You may find pre/co-requisites listed under “miscellaneous requirements” and they will have to be transferred to the correct spot on the form. If you have other requirements, add them to "miscellaneous requirements."
Adding or Changing Liberal Studies or Upper-Division Competencies:
At the bottom of the course information form you will see check boxes for liberal studies and upper-division competencies. Check the appropriate ones you want, then click Save.
Step 2 - Complete a Delivery Method Form
You will complete a delivery method form for each delivery method that will be used for the course. You will be asked to acknowledge the required/recommended syllabus statements and upload a pdf version of a sample syllabus associated with the delivery method. You may add additional delivery methods before proceeding to step 3.
After you have saved the Delivery Method Form, the Liberal studies forms you need (based on designations you have chosen in the course information form) will appear on your list for you to complete.
Please briefly explain the changes you are requesting to the curriculum, or the revisions you have made to the request.
Pre-submittal Review Stage: You may now click on 'Reviewer Feedback' to send a message requesting feedback on your course request.
Formal Submission: Once the request has been through the proper chain of notification and approval, you may move on to Step 4.
Check the box to certify you have followed the appropriate notification and approval channels for the new curriculum request.
