Petersen, Allan L.; Berg, Ernest H.
As mandated under Title 5 of the California Administrative Code, this annual report to the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges explains the current course approval process in the colleges and summarizes approval activities in the areas of credit courses and programs and non-credit courses. First, background information is presented on Section 55100 of Title 5, which requires that proposed educational programs be submitted to the Chancellor before being offered by a community college. Next, the approval process is outlined including the information to be submitted to the Chancellor's office. Following this is a section on credit course and program approvals for 1982-83. Next, information is presented on revisions of course and program approval procedures including the requirement that program summaries be presented two years in advance of program implementation. Finally, approvals of non-credit courses for 1982-83 and information on reductions in lecture and forum series (except those for older adults) and re-licensure courses are presented. This section includes information on changes in the number of non-credit courses offered between 1977-78 and 1982-83 and reasons for the changes. Section 55002 of the code, Standards and Criteria for Courses and Classes, is appended. (HB)
