This screen is where you enter your program requirements. It is a two-step process:
Select Add New Item to create a course block. You can remove, edit, and re-order saved course block titles using the navigation buttons.
This field contains the heading that defines a block of courses. Once you create a heading, you will be able to add specific courses under it. Examples of block titles are:
If all courses in the block are required, leave the minimum and maximum units for the block blank. Meta will calculate all units in the block by default.
If only some of the courses in the block are required, enter the range of units. There are several possibilities here:
First, select the subject (discipline) of the course you wish to add. Then select the specific course number.
To add a non-course requirement to the major (such as such as CPR certification or Live Scan), enter the requirement exactly as it should appear in the course catalog.
Select a Condition (and/or) from the drop-down menu with each requirement you add to the course block.
Required only if you are adding a variable unit course to the course block; otherwise, leave these blank. You can enter the full range available for the course, or a more limited range. (E.g. for a 1-4 unit course, you can require 2 units, or 3-4 units, etc.)
If there are exceptions to the requirement, you can enter a symbol (such as *) as the exception identifier, and then enter the exception text exactly as it should appear in the catalog.
The State Chancellor's Office requires program submissions to include a recommended course sequence. The sequence must be arranged so that a full-time student could complete a degree program in two years, except in the case of a high-unit technical or health occupation program where a sequence longer than two years is necessary.
The State Chancellor's Office requires us to provide final (not census) enrollment data for all required existing courses for the last two years to validate the need for this program in the college service area. This data is also used to validate Projected Annual Completers on the Feasibility screen.
Year 1/Year 2: Enter the two calendar years (not academic years) prior to the year you are submitting the proposal.
Annual # Sections: For each year, provide the annual number of sections offered for the course.
Annual Enrollment Total: For each year, provide the annual number of students enrolled after the final drop date (not FTES or census enrollment). For assistance getting these numbers, contact your dean.
