NMSU System Curriculum Deadlines

The NMSU System maintains a curriculum calendar that includes all Schedule (CLSS), Course (CIM), Programs (PIM), Catalog (CAT) and Degree Audit deadlines for submissions and publication. The dates are guided by external committee meeting and may fluctuate based on those.

The Courseleaf Section Scheduling System (CLSS) is used to build and modify the semester schedules for the NMSU system, any events on the calendar pertaining to this system are the dates the Phase changes and new scheduling rules are in place. For more information about the CLSS system, click here and select¬† the “Section Scheduling” tab.

The Course Inventory Management (CIM) System is used to add, delete and update courses within the NMSU system, any events on the calendar referencing the system are the deadlines for submissions and/or approvals in order to be included in the schedule and/or academic catalogs. For more information about the CIM system, click here and select the “Course Curriculum” tab.

The Program Inventory Management (PIM) System is used to propose new, update existing and phase out academic programs within the NMSU system. Events that have PIM in the title will reference deadlines for submission and tentative approval deadlines for individuals and committees approvals in order for the program submission to potentially make the next academic catalog publication date. Please note that individuals and committees have the ability to hold and/or deny proposals at any point in the cycle so proposals will tentatively follow the deadlines after the initial Department Submission Deadline. (*Note: all proposals that are subject to HLC approval cannot be predicted as to when an approval will be given as this step can vary from program to program and any new programs should not be advertised until that approval is received). Please visit the Program Curriculum tab here, for more detailed information to help you prep you program submissions.

Any deadlines referencing Catalog (CAT) are those for the Academic Catalogs within the NMSU System and the Degree Audit events will provide the date of the publication of the audits for the next published catalog. CAT deadlines are also non-curriculum updates within that system as the curriculum updates come directly from approved PIM proposals only and follow those deadlines.

How to use the calendar

The calendar can be viewed in month, week, day and agenda format, it is recommended to use either the month or agenda format. When viewing the month format you can toggle between the months and years as needed. Any deadlines will appear on the corresponding day as an “even” you can then view the event by hovering over it to see a quick breakdown or by selecting it to see the full details.

When an event is selected you can hit the “Add to Calendar” button to add the event as a new calendar in outlook which you can overlay with your email’s calendar for reminders. You can also subscribe to the calendar so any updates made you will be notified. Within the deadlines calendar you can use the categories to filter the deadlines that display but Courseleaf System. To compliment this you can also add tags to better narrow down the results to include: the effective/catalog terms, approving deadlines/departmental deadlines, University Student Records Office (SRO) items, Community College/Main Campus, Graduate, new programs/existing programs, committee meetings, etc.
