To Academic Departments:

Curriculum revisions are updated to CUNYfirst twice a year, two weeks prior to the start of the fall and spring registration periods, following the posting of Chancellor’s Reports. Please plan your curricular changes in advance of the semester to allow sufficient time for updates to CUNYfirst.

All new programs and significant changes to a program's degree requirements will become effective in the fall semester of an academic calendar year. If there is a change in course number or prefix, or assignment of a new course number or prefix, before submitting the proposal to the Committee on Curriculum, confirm with the Registrar's office that the number and/or prefix is available for use.  Then download the respective form(s) here.
