Catalog Proposal Timelines

Proposals for 2022-23, 2023-24, and 2024-25 Catalogs

Background

Starting with the 2019-20 catalog, Cal Poly adopted a one-year catalog for a phased implementation of the new General Education (GE) 2020 template. The new template is effective with the 2020-21 catalog. For subsequent catalogs, courses in each GE area will undergo recertification review, based upon updated guidelines developed for each area:

Courses for Recertification Review

Catalog Review Cycle

GE Areas A and B

2021-22
GE Areas C, D and E (Lower-Division) 2022-23
GE Areas C and D (Upper-Division) 2023-24

For more information on recertification, refer to the General Education program’s website.

Moving from a two-year to a one-year catalog also provides departments with the flexibility to be agile and make incremental adjustments to their curriculum as needed, rather than attempting wholesale revisions under the pressure of having to “wait two years” before being able to make changes again. Additionally, an annual catalog allows submission timelines for proposals to be more streamlined, instead of managing multiple intermediary timelines to bridge the two-year gap between biannual catalogs.

Submission Timelines

See the below chart for when proposals must be approved by the college’s associate dean in Curriculum Management workflow to be considered for the current or next catalog.

NOTE: With the exception of editing a program, all catalog proposals may be submitted in the Curriculum Management system at any time. The window for creating and submitting an Edit Program proposal is restricted. Please see program edit submission window for each year below.
