Proposing LSP Courses

First-Year Program (FYP) Courses

Faculty interested in submitting a proposal for First-Year Program consideration should review the information and deadlines here. Questions specific to the FYP proposal process can be sent to Michael Edwards (x51187).

Liberal Studies Courses

Faculty interested in submitting a proposal for Liberal Studies Program consideration should review the learning outcomes and writing expectations for the appropriate LSP area. Please visit the about​ section of the website, to learn more about the LSP Common Core and Learning Domain​ areas.

All aspects of the proposal process (including Chair/Associate Dean approval and any re-submissions) must be completed prior to the deadline. We strongly recommend allowing at least a week or two for the Chair/Associate Dean approval to occur.  The proposal requires Chair/Associate Dean approval before the advisory committee will receive it. Once the proposal is received by the deadline, the advisory committee will review and send a decision to the proposer by the end of the quarter in which it was proposed. 

Proposal Deadlines:

  • To teach Autumn Quarter, proposals must be submitted by Feb. 1 (of the previous academic year).
  • To teach Winter Quarter, proposals must be submitted by May 1 (of the previous academic year).
  • To teach Spring Quarter, proposals must be submitted by Oct. 1 (of the same academic year).

NOTE: Advisory Committees reserve the right to delay the review of late proposals and consider them in a subsequent proposal cycle.
