[Approved by University of Missouri-Columbia Faculty Council on University Policy on June 12, 2003]

  1. Curriculum and policy revisions are not effective until official notification of the Office of the University Registrar by the Provost's office has occurred. Program revisions must be accompanied by Dean's approval and appropriate curriculum endorsements.
  2. Curriculum and policy revisions are not effective until changes are posted on the official MU catalog Web site maintained by the Office of the University Registrar. For policy changes to be effective for a subsequent term , they must be posted by the first day of preregistration for the term and submitted at least one month prior to the posting date. Any variation from standard University grandfathering policy should be noted in the approval process and in the posted description.
