When a new academic program is approved, the college will add the program to the Program Application in CHSSWeb. New programs are added each spring after the official online University Catalog has been published.
Once a new catalog is released, the CHSSWeb team runs an import which updates the Degree Requirements section of each Program. This process also finds each reference to a course in the requirements and wires that up to the course listing in CHSSWeb. When this process is complete, the program requirements reflect exactly what has been approved and entered in the University Catalog, and visitors are able to explore freely, moving from program requirements to courses, sections, and faculty.
Program directors can then edit all other aspects of the program on the web.
Similarly, if a program is discontinued, the college will delete it from the Program Application, which removes it from display on CHSSWeb sites.
