Five-Year Reviews

Designations that have been placed on courses are reviewed every five years by the General Education Curriculum Committee (GECC). The Office of General Education sends requests for materials at least one month before the start of the semester to departments with courses that are due for their five-year designation reviews. View this video for instructions on how to access the Kuali Curriculum Management system where you will submit your five-year review application:

Materials not submitted by 5:00pm on the deadline will not be accepted and the review process will not go forward. Designations may be removed if departments do not engage in the five-year review process.
