This is not a comprehensive list of changes.  CIM will track the changes you make in your proposal and will submit your proposal to the proper workflow.  If you make several changes in your proposal, the change that requires the highest level of approval will determine the workflow.

See the table below for the information that is required for various changes to existing options.  Below the table is a description of each type of information.

  • Liaisons:
    • At least three
      • A minimum of two Academic Liaisons must be from outside the college associated with the Originating Academic Unit.

      • The remaining liaisons can be from within the college but must be outside the Originating Academic Unit.

    • If extending a certificate to Ecampus, in CIM, select "::Liaison not required" in the Liaisons field.
  • Program details:
    • The CIM form for editing an option is dynamic.  Depending on the change type you select, only certain questions will appear in the form.  This way you don't have to fill out fields that don't apply.
    • In the CPS, proposals required several attachments. The option proposal form in CIM has fields that cover almost all of the content formerly in those attachments. In addition, approval by department and college leadership have been incorporated into the workflow.
  • External letter of support: at least one letter of support from contacts external to OSU.
