  • Changes to course sequencing, such as the re-arrangement or re-ordering of current offerings within a program without changing the overall program requirements.
  • New elective courses and the deletion of elective courses.
  • Changes to course titles and course descriptions.
  • Changes to course numbers, credit weighting of elective courses, and contact hours in lecture, lab, tutorial or other components.
  • Changes to prerequisites, co-requisites, cross-listed courses, credit restrictions and/or credit exclusions.
  • Changes in the design, mode of delivery, course learning outcomes, teaching and assessment methods of an individual course.
  • Other minor changes to individual course offerings that do not affect the overall program requirements.
