Major/Minor/Concentration Change
To modify existing requirements and/or course sequencing of an existing major, minor or concentration.
Complete the entire form below and submit the current checklist and an updated checklist that

contact the chair of that department and attach email correspondence to show communication
and collaboration.
If the change involves the creation of new courses, a “Course Addition” form must be generated
for each new course.
If the change involves the modification of existing courses, an “Existing Course Modification/
Deletion” form must be included for each affected course.
If unsure about the depth of detail required in this form, especially for Section B, contact the
Chair of the Curriculum Committee prior to filling this form.

B. Provide a summary and rationale behind the proposed change including any staffing adjustments that
may accompany the proposed change. Provide information about 2- to 4-year course rotations (use
separate sheet if necessary) and who will be teaching the courses affected. The description of the
staffing impact should be proportionate to the proposed changes. Simply stating that the proposed
change will have no impact on staffing is not sufficient.
