State University General Education Requirement (SUNY-GER)

For Campuses with Approved Guidelines

 

Instructions:  Course Addition Reporting Template

 

 

Use the format set out on the following page when reporting courses that have been approved locally for any of the SUNY-GER categories.  The System Guidelines for the Approval of State University General Education Requirement Courses are available at http://www.suny.edu/provost/GeneralEducation/campusgenedresources.cfm.

 

Information solicited in I-V is required.  If VI-VII are not provided, the Advisory Council for General Education (ACGE) reserves the right to request such information to confirm the appropriateness of the submitted offering.  Instructions/examples are provided in boldface.  Use as much space as appropriate to provide the requested information.   This document is not a form, but you may find it convenient to use it to create a template for your submissions. 

 

Submissions should be made electronically.

  

Please email course information in RTF or Word (Windows) format to gened@sysadm.suny.edu.

 

A Word Doc version of the template can be downloaded from http://www.suny.edu/provost/GeneralEducation/Forms/course-addition-form.doc for your convenience.

   

 

If there are any questions about an offering’s conformity with System guidelines it will be transmitted to the ACGE for consideration.  Campuses shall refrain from publicizing a course as a SUNY-GER offering before receiving notification of approval from the Provost’s Office.  Requests for expedited processing should be made at the time of submission.
