Types of Changes
Please ensure that all changes are submitted with a rationale and proof of approval by the home faculty.
Courses: The Graduate Academic Program Subcommittee (GAPS) is responsible for approving changes to graduate-level courses. In the case of an undergraduate course cross-listed with a graduate course, Calendar and Curriculum Subcommittee (CCS) is the approving body.
Program descriptions: GAPS is responsible for approving changes to program admission requirements, changes to course requirements that don’t alter the total course load, and changes to any additional program requirements.
Substantive program changes: Creation/deletion/renaming of programs or specializations and changes to course load require approval by FGS Council, GAPS, APPC and, in some cases, the Province.
Minor editorial changes: These changes include error corrections, changes in administrative information, or revised wording. As long as the proposed changes do not impact programs or courses or do not change the meaning or intent of an entry, they can be entered by the Calendar Coordinator. If in doubt, these changes will be brought to GAPS Working Group for consideration.
