Course Proposal Forms

Are you a prospective Instructor? Do you have a course idea?

If you'd like to propose a course idea or would like to teach a class, please submit a Course Definition Form and an Instructor Application Form via email. DUE TO THE VOLUME OF PROPOSALS RECEIVED, ONLY ELECTRONICALLY SUBMITTED PROPOSALS USING THESE FORMS WILL BE REVIEWED.

  • Proposals are accepted year round for Continuing and Professional Education courses. The fall term begins in early September, the winter term begins in late January, and the spring term begins in early March. A modest array of courses is offered in the summer, in June and July.
  • Due to the volume of proposals received, only accepted proposals will result in contact from Continuing and Professional Education staff.
  • New course development takes approximately 4-6 months; proposed courses will be considered for the next available term, which may be up to a full calendar year after a course idea is submitted.
