The online Course Request and Maintenance System (CRAMS) is for creating and modifying
- professional courses.
This includes the functions of creating, modifying, deleting, restoring, cross-listing, splitting, and merging, and all of the approval steps involved in approving a new or changed course.
The system is designed for:
- All preparers of undergraduate, graduate, or professional courses and
- All approvers, from the CoursesSpecialist review stage, through the College and Graduate Division approval stage, to the Committee on Courses final approval.
The entire process is via computer, so
- Courses are prepared on the Preparer's PC computer.
- They are then submitted via computer to theRegistrar's Office (Reviewer).
- Communication about the course occurs between Preparer and Reviewer via computer.
- When courses are "clean" they are sent from the Registrar's Office (Reviewer) to the appropriate Approver'squeue.
- Courses are then routed as required for approval (e.g., from the College Approver'squeue to the Graduate Approver's queue to the Committee on Courses Approver's queue).
- Faculty committee members at any approver level can view and comment on coursesvia the Web.
- From the College or Graduate Approver's queue courses are sent to the Committee onCourses representative's queue for final approval.
- From the College Approver's queue courses are sent to the Graduate Approver's queue (if applicable)
Courses were input and changed through the CRAMS system beginning Fall 2002.
