Academic Affairs Committee on Undergraduate Studies

About the Committee

The Academic Affairs Committee on Undergraduate Studies is responsible for defining and formulating undergraduate curricular policies of the University. It reviews undergraduate curricular proposals, including new and revised programs, new locations or modalities, addition and deletion of courses, changes in course sequencing, credit hours, and course descriptions.

The Academic Affairs Committee on Undergraduate Studies receives undergraduate curricular proposals only after they have been approved by the appropriate faculty committee and Dean of the school or college recommending the curricular change. The Academic Affairs Committee on Undergraduate Studies recommends the University calendar for the University of the Pacific. In addition, the Academic Affairs Committee on Undergraduate Studies approves name changes of undergraduate academic departments.  (Faculty Handbook 6.2.1)
