Nominate a Course for the KU Core

The University uses the Course Inventory Management (CIM) system to manage all course and program proposals, including the KU Core. Curriculum submissions entered through the tool will be synchronized with the academic catalog and routed through electronic workflows based on the information we receive.

Courses nominated for the KU Core will first be proposed through CIM. The School/College's Curriculum Committee will review and nominate the course to the UCCC's queue. Once it has reached UCCC, the committee reviews the course nomination. Courses approved become part of the KU Core. Courses not approved will be sent back to the department with comments for revisions and resubmission or withdrawal.

To nominate a course for the KU Core please use the CIM tool; logging in with your university login.

To assist you in preparing your nomination, we have provided PDF versions of the nomination forms below.
