Catalog revision process is underway

The catalog revision process is underway for production of the 2018-2019 LLCC Catalog. Please review the following file for any revisions and changes that need to be made:

This reflects the July 1 publishing of the dynamic catalog. Changes that have been approved by the Curriculum Committee through the spring 2017 semester have already been corrected on this file. Please feel free to verify that changes from your department have been made. Please check with Pam Daniel to see if the changes you are requesting need to be approved first by the Curriculum Team. If you know of any other change that must be made, please go through the proper channels to have those changes approved. The catalog must match the ICCB Course Master, CurricUNET, Board Policy Manual and approved Academic Standards policies.

The guidelines for making corrections are listed below.

  1. Copy the section into an e-mail, including the section from which you copied it.
  2. Make additions and corrections using the red font. Use the red font and the strikeout format to highlight deletions.
  3. Email it to Elaine Guthals at elaine.guthals

You may also print off the page, make the corrections and send the page to Elaine through intercampus mail if you so choose. Remember to include the page number on which the information is found. In addition, Elaine has a hard copy of the catalog in her office that can be reviewed there.
