Curriculum Workflow and Resources

Curriculum Update 2/16/22

The University is adopting a new, efficient, and user-friendly curriculum management system. This means that we have to discontinue the old system to transition to the new system.

Effective March 15th, the Registrar’s Office is suspending access to the old curriculum work flow for all departments. The Registrar’s Office will not accept any new curriculum forms between March 15 and early August. This change will only affect new forms and approvals at the department level. College-level approvers (and higher) will still have access to review and approve forms in the old curriculum work flow.

What’s the reason for this change?

The University is adopting a new curriculum management system. The Registrar’s Office cannot accept new forms until the new service goes live in August 2022.

What do departments need to do?

Nothing at this time. Existing forms will continue to be reviewed and approved at the College level and above. If your department has a pending form, the Registrar’s staff will contact you directly with instructions and updates.

When can departments submit new forms?

Departments may submit new forms in August 2022 when the new curriculum system goes live. The Registrar’s Office will host training sessions and provide detailed instructions on how to use the new system.

Will this delay curriculum changes for 2022-2023?

No. The deadline to submit forms for 2022-2023 has already passed. Health Sciences Center forms were due by October 1, 2021. Branch and Main Campus forms were due by October 28, 2021. The Registrar’s Office will ensure that all forms submitted by the deadlines are processed. Any 2022-2023 forms that are still pending in August will be retained until they are fully resolved

Curriculum Workflow

Curriculum Workflow is an online form submission program that is used to request, review, and approve new -and revisions to existing- courses and most certificate and degree programs at the University of New Mexico campuses. Curriculum revision is subject to review and approval by the Faculty Senate and other curriculum-related Committees. Refer to the Curriculum Forms Process Manual for instructions on completing curriculum forms and information on the approval process. Direct questions to the Associate Registrar of Catalog and Curriculum at mraine@unm.edu.

The Workflow is at: https://curric.unm.edu/

NOTE: VPN approval is required to access the site for those away from the campus network. See UNM FastInfo ID 7819 or call UNM Information Technologies Customer Support Services at (505) 277-5757 for more information.

New Program Preliminary Review

New program proposals are subject to preliminary review by the Office of the Provost before beginning the development of the Form C or Form D. Allow six weeks for the preliminary review.
