Undergraduate Curriculum Changes
MTSU uses the curriculum management system Curriculog for all proposals. Curriculog allows for the completion and submission of all curriculum proposals, the development of curriculum meeting agendas, and the review and approval of the curriculum committees and administrators. Classes on using Curriculog are offered periodically throughout the fall and spring semesters.
MTSU faculty and staff log in by using FSA user name with @mtsu.edu (firstname.lastname@example.org) and FSA password. For assistance with Curriculog or proposals, please contact Peter Cunningham or Mitzi Brandon.
