Submission Timeline:

University Undergraduate Curriculum (UUC) meetings are held the second Friday of each month.  From September to February, our curriculum season, the catalog is in production for the next academic year for curriculum updates and proposals via OneDrive.  We are currently in the process of migrating to Curriculog™ which will be our system for curriculum submissions in the future.  Last date for proposals for an academic year will be the second week of January following a publishing date by March 31st.  Final approval for changes will be at the discretion of the managers of the catalog content. All revisions and updates have an effective term at the start of an academic year, which is our Fall session. 

Please Note:  Once the University of Memphis online catalog is published and locked only minor revisions, by catalog managers, are allowed to correct inaccuracies after a curriculum season has ended. 

Submitting Updates:

Editors of their college and school sections of the catalog will have from September until the end of February to make revisions to their respective areas in the catalog after each UUC meeting has concluded.  Editors will be responsible and only have access to their specific content areas of the catalog.  However, editors will also have access to make minor revisions throughout the curriculum season from September to February.  When changes are completed in Acalog™ please use the “Complete Audit Event Alert” feature in Acalog™ and select “Registrar Group” to send notification of an audit item.  You may add comments to this section, if needed.

Deans, Chairs, and Non-Academic sections will be provided a preview of their content for any revisions before final publication.

Managers are system administrators of the catalog and can make edits and updates as needed. For departments and schools who do not have a designee a catalog manager will be responsible for adding their updates.

Reviewers have read-only access to an unpublished catalog during the curriculum season.

Courses will be added only by the Registrar Group.  Please remember course descriptions should be clear and must be indicative of the course title.

Catalog Style Guideline:

The catalog is not intended as a guideline for academic writing.  The editorial style is for university-related matters, such as the approved names of schools, colleges, departments, and service areas.
