Welcome to the webpage of the COAS Curriculum Committee. This page describes the committee’s deadlines and procedures.

Submitting and Approving Items in the APC Workflow System
The APC Workflow System (APCWfS) is the online platform for APC submissions and is here: https://apcwf.unf.edu .
Lots more info and help is available here: http://www.unf.edu/groups/unffa/APCWorkflowSystem/APC_workflow.html
Getting your package to the committee means that the original creator of the package (called the “Requester”) should complete the package and press the “Process Package” button. It then moves to the department chair (called the “Pre-College Station”), who approves it by “Process Package” and then “Move to College Station”.
Once it arrives in the College Station, it appears in the COAS Curr Cmte’s queue. If you ever wish to confirm that your item is in our queue, you can
During the COAS Curriculum Committee’s weeklong review period, please do check the comments posted on your package. These comments have led to significant dialogue and problem-solving prior to the meeting, and often issues are fixed in time for the corrected package to be passed quickly at the meeting.
The committee strongly encourages you to attend the actual meeting at which your item will be considered, in order to answer questions and clear up concerns. Meeting times/dates/locations are above.
You may have heard rumors about the pickiness of this committee regarding semicolons, grammar, and other such matters. Our aim really is to help. We have been told that at the final stages of state approval in Tallahassee, the submissions have to be near-perfect. So our committee’s goal is not only to approve packages quickly, but also to assist departments in getting the paperwork absolutely right so that it easily passes the APC committee, Tallahassee, and any other approval stages.
Please don’t hesitate to ask Ron or your dept rep to the committee (listed below) if you need assistance with the APC Workflow System, or have any other questions. We are very happy to help. Thank you very much for working with us in this important process.
