https://nextcatalog.towson.edu/programadmin/

Please note that all program changes are evaluated by the Provost’s office before being forwarded to the FCSM Curriculum Committee.  Although these reviews are conducted quickly, it does add a few business days to the approval process.

The FCSM Curriculum Committee evaluates proposals in a timely manner, and small changes to courses and programs may be approved upon receipt.  New courses, programs, and major revisions are discussed at formal meetings of the committee.  Meetings are typically held towards the end of a month in order to evaluate and approve proposals in time for meetings of the University Curriculum and Graduate Studies Committees.
