Program Curriculum Deadlines (for addition into the catalog)

Any curriculum that is submitted for the Third NMHED Advisory Committee Meeting Submission Deadline, is tentatively added to the catalog. If all final approvals are not received before the College approval deadline (listed below under the Catalog Deadlines), then the Program will be removed from the catalog for that cycle.

The below deadlines are based on the NM HED meeting deadlines for approval at the state level for all new degrees/majors. There is a separate deadline for all other curriculum changes that do not require HED approval. In order to have the changes considered as meeting the deadline, the forms must be completed with signatures and submitted to the University Student Records Office for Processing. The Curriculum Forms can be found on the University Student Records Form page, under the For Faculty/Staff section.

In order to determine if the Curriculum Change that needs HED approval, see either the Curriculum Forms or ARP 4.81.
