Guidelines for Submission of New Course Proposal

  • Deadline: February 2.  Questions involving late submissions may not be resolved in time to ensure inclusion in both the Bryn Mawr and Haverford on-line registration systems or the Tri-Co Course Guide.
  • Email as an attachment the New Course Proposal form to Joann O’Doherty ( in Dean’s Office (please do not use forms from earlier years).   Scanned pdf versions of handwritten submissions will greatly speed the submission process.
  • While the new course instructor likely will initiate the proposal process, Curriculum Committee expects to receive submissions from the chairperson of the sponsoring department.
  • Allow enough time to obtain confirmations from
    • the chairperson or coordinator of counterpart or related department(s) or program(s) at Haverford that the new course will enhance rather than duplicate existing curricula; and
    • the chairperson of any department cross-listing the new course or any program that will grant credit for its completion.
  • Departments will need to create opportunities to assist instructors new to the Bi-Co community in understanding expectations for courses that contribute to major, minor other curricular requirements.

For additional information and forms, see Curriculum Committee website and the Provost's website.
