Begin by clicking the "New Proposal" button on your home screen.

This will open a list of available forms/processes. These are the equivalent of the familiar forms for various curricular actions. Click on the check mark to the right of the proposal type you want to make. You can also click on the title of the proposal to view the general approval process for that proposal type, or the preview icon (square with a diagonal arrow) to preview the form.

The "Approval Steps" on the right side will update to direct the proposal to the correct approvers as you make choices in the form, you do not need to enter anything there. You can use the X above the toolbar to close that right window and make the proposal form easier to see.

Please Read All Directions Carefully

Before beginning to complete the form, read all directions. A few key features are highlighted below, including the paper clip icon on the toolbar at the right of the window, which you can use to attach any required or optional documents called for in the form. 

Help text appears at various steps to ensure you are filling the form out correctly, and, at the bottom right, you will find the “Walk Me Through” tool, which will give you step-by-step guidance for filling in the form, should you need help.

Curriculog will ask you for the same information as our previous forms, plus a few more things to help direct the proposal to the correct approvers.

Once you have completed all required fields, there are a few final steps to take, which are noted at the bottom of the proposal form. You must save your changes, then validate and launch your proposal.

Final Steps to Move Your Proposal Along for Approval


  1. Click to save your changes. Make any final edits you wish; after launching the proposal, you will not be able to edit it or attach files (including the syllabus).
  2. Click to validate and launch your proposal.
  3. Approve your proposal as the Originator: Click on the check mark in the toolbox at the right, and approve the proposal.

Once you have clicked to validate and launch your proposal, you will get additional options in your proposal toolbar, and a message that the proposal has moved on and is ready for your approval as the initiator. Click on the check mark to approve your proposal. If you do not approve your own proposal, it will not go to the next level for signature.

You may return to Curriculog at any time to view the progress of your proposal through the required approval steps.
