Program and Course Approval Handbook. Fifth Edition
California Community Colleges, Chancellor's Office
This "Program and Course Approval Handbook" assists California Community College (CCC) administrators, faculty, and staff in the development of programs and courses and the submission of these proposals for review by the Chancellor's Office. By law, the Chancellor is required to prepare and distribute a handbook for program and course approval (California Code of Regulations, Title 5, §55000.5). The Chancellor has delegated these responsibilities to the Academic Affairs Division of the Chancellor's Office. This fifth edition of the "Program and Course Approval Handbook" replaces all previous editions. Additionally, this Handbook replaces the Course Standards Handbook published by the Educational Standards and Evaluation Division of the Chancellor's Office in July 1987 as well as the User Guide for the CCC Curriculum Inventory published by the Academic Affairs Division of the Chancellor's Office in September 2010. This Handbook provides college faculty and administrators with the following: (1) Chancellor's Office procedures for the submission, review, and approval of programs and courses on a statewide basis; (2) A framework for consistent documentation of the content and objectives of programs and courses; and (3) Understanding of uniform practices in curriculum development as established in the field of curriculum design and instructional technology and as recommended by the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges. This Handbook is organized into four sections: Section 1: Chancellor's Office Curriculum Review: discusses the transition from a form-based to an action-driven CCC Curriculum Inventory system and details how to develop and submit curriculum proposals for Chancellor's Office review. Section 2: Comprehensive Curriculum Topics: provides information relevant to credit and noncredit curriculum development. Section 3: Credit Curriculum: describes standards and criteria procedures for credit programs and courses, and instructions for completing proposals for review by the Chancellor's Office using the CCC Curriculum Inventory. Section 4: Noncredit Curriculum: describes standards and criteria for noncredit programs and courses, including procedures and instructions for completing proposals for review by the Chancellor's Office using the CCC Curriculum Inventory. The following appended proposal development guides are included: (1) Credit Course; (2) Associate Degree for Transfer (ADT); (3) Associate Degree (A.A. or A.S.); (4) Certificate of Achievement (Credit); (5) Noncredit Course; (5) Certificate of Competency (Noncredit); (6) Certificate of Completion (Noncredit); and (7) Adult High School Diploma (Noncredit).
