Courses & Programs

Illinois has 16 colleges and instructional units that provide more than 150 undergraduate programs and more than 100 graduate and professional programs.

All courses, curriculum, academic catalog pages, and units/centers/programs/institutes/departments have a lifecycle – creation, maintenance, and elimination. The Office of the Provost is here to help though all lifecycle phases.

All new, revised, and deactivated courses must be approved by the Office of the Provost upon the recommendation of the department, the college, and, in the case of 400- through 500-level courses, the Graduate College. Visit the links below for more information.

Changes to existing programs or proposals for new programs are reviewed by the Office of the Provost and are subject to approval by the Academic Senate, Board of Trustees, Illinois Board of Higher Education, Higher Learning Commission, and Department of Education.
