Curriculum Committee : Submission Requirements

Submission Requirements

All Course Outlines of Record (COR) are processed through the Electronic Curriculum Development (ECD) system. Faculty may be granted access to the system to work on CORs. To login, go to the ECD homepage (https://ecd.laccd.edu) and request an account. Once the request is made, you will receive an email with a temporary password. 

Listed below are the requirements for each type of submission. In order to expedite the process, be sure your submissions are complete and submitted according to the submissions deadlines page.

For questions, send an email to Curriculum@lamission.edu.

The COR may not need to go through tech review if its Last Update Date (COR Section I.9) is within two years.

Once on the agenda, the Curriculum Committee will review all sections of any COR submitted; the originator is responsible for addressing all notes. The COR will have a new update date regardless of the type of submission.

  • ARCHIVE (Inactivate) Course

Verify that no current programs contain the archived course.  If a current approved program contains the course planned to be archived, then the appropriate program change documents must be completed simultaneously (See "UPDATE a Program" section below). 

Remember that once a course is archived it is:

  • Deleted from the Catalog
  • Removed from ASSIST
  • Removed from UC and CSU transfer lists
  • Removed from all advising forms (IGETC, CSU and local plan)
  • If a course is subsequently reinstated, it may take a minimum of 1 to 2 years to have it approved for transfer and placed on the advising forms again.

Initiate the COR in the ECD system using the Create/Edit/Reinstate button, followed by option C) Archive A Course. Submit to the Department Chair.
