Slippery Rock University's curriculum approval body is known as the University Curriculum Committee (UCC).  UCC provides a mechanism for the systematic review, evaluation, and change of the curriculum at the University level, in compliance with the collective bargaining agreement between the University/ Commonwealth and the Faculty/APSCUF.

UCC acts on curriculum matters involving:

  • Changes in title, numbering, course content, and prerequisites for a course.
  • The designation of a sequence or group of courses as a minor or a program within the existing department(s) - whether by advisement or requirement.
  • The addition or deletion of a course in the offerings of a department.
  • The adoption of any policy regarding the acceptability or requirement of courses outside of a department for the completion of a program within a department.
  • Changes in requirements of a minor, a major, a degree, or a certification.
  • Development of new programs and/or degrees.
  • Curricular issues of a general nature.
