File Naming Protocol - UPDATED

Note that the File Naming Protocol has been updated for Fall 2015 with the AP&P division into Undergraduate and Graduate AP&P Committees.

The main form (Part A and B) should be named for your college/school and department or program, with the appropriate sequential number. For example, if the Department of Nursing proposes a new course called Adult Health Nursing (NUR 3100) and it is the third proposal that the Department of Nursing has completed in 2016, the file should be saved as U_HS_NUR _2016_35.pdf.

UPDATE to Protocol: Beginning Fall 2015, all proposals should:

  • Use a U or G prefix in the file name to denote undergraduate or graduate (ex. U_HS_NUR _2016_35.pdf or G_HS_NUR _2016_4.pdf). Proposals requiring approval by both committees should use the prefix "GU".
  • U, G, and GU proposals should all maintain the numbering sequence of 1, 2, 3... no matter what the prefix is.
  • The year included in the file name should reflect the fall term of the academic year in which the proposal was submitted to AP&P. For example, a proposal submitted in October 2016 would be listed as 2016. A proposal submitted in Feb 2017 would also be listed as 2016 since the submision date was during the 2016-2017 academic year.
  • Gen Ed proposals (Part C only) will also use the U prefix.
