Rice University General Policy No. 804-00

 

PROCEDURE FOR ESTABLISHING NEW COURSES  

APPLIES TO ALL RICE UNIVERSITY  

New courses are to be proposed by Department Chairmen to the appropriate Divisional Dean, or the Provost, and should include a statement indicating the purpose of the course and its effect on established curricula. Need, duplication, adequate faculty and facilities will be considered in all cases.

Those new courses that represent a substantial change affecting general curricula will be referred by the Dean, or Provost, to the President who will act with advice from interested persons and groups when necessary. The Dean, or Provost, will have authority to approve all other new courses and will then forward copies of all approved course descriptions to the Provost's office, which will keep the Registrar informed and see that they are included in the next publication of the General Announcements.
