COVID Update:

EFSC has returned to normal pre-COVID operations, with full capacity on-campus classes and events. Click for the COVID Reporting Requirements and the Return to Campus Approval Process which remain in place. See the Student Services Guide for on-campus services available on a walk-in basis or by appointment, plus virtual options. Read the latest updates.

Curriculum Development Process

A course consists of three components: the correct Catalog and Program of Study Template for the degree or certificate program; a Course Plan Template; and a Lab Fee Justification Form. To maintain accurate, complete records for a course, all three components must be submitted to Curriculum Support Services each time any one component is revised.
