Crosslisting a course is a mechanism to facilitate multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary instruction. Crosslisted courses are offered by more than one department and a) contain the same title, credits, description, and prerequisites; b) have designators that reflect the departments offering the courses; and c) include a distinctive statement at the end of the description to indicate that the course is crosslisted.
Each participating unit must share in the development and teaching of the course. The Schedule Desk will not schedule different courses at the same time and place unless they are crosslisted. Proposing or changing a crosslisted course requires a Category II proposal and can be accomplished with a single proposal, but must include liaison with each participating unit’s department heads/chairs and colleges, and with other affected units (i.e. units that may use this course as a prerequisite).
Additional Information: Category II Proposals
When a proposal to create or change a crosslisting reaches the Curriculum Coordinator, an administrative record will be created in the system for the other course(s). The system will illuminate any additional liaison that may need to be added to the original proposal.
