Cross Listing

Help

The Cross Listing field is a text box. Enter the department and course number of the cross-listed course.

A cross-listed course is a single course offered collaboratively through two departments or programs. Each department shares responsibility for the course, and must contribute resources to the offering of the course. In addition, the course must be either team taught by a faculty member from each department, or must be taught by a faculty member with a joint appointment in both departments. For more information on cross-listed course approvals, see Academic Senate Policies.

After reading the guidelines on cross-listing, explain in the Justification section why these courses should be cross listed. Cross-listed courses must be identical (except in Subject Area, Subject ID Code, and possibly Prerequisites) and must be submitted simultaneously from each of the academic units involved. You are responsible for coordinating the submission of cross-listed courses. Cross-listed courses are not approved at the Data Entry workflow level until all of the courses are present at the Data Entry workflow level.

For a cross-listed course to be approved, each department must submit a course approval form for the course. The course approval forms must be identical in every way, with the exception of the three-letter subject code. You must clearly explain on the course approval form how the course meets the criteria for cross-listing, and how the cross-listing benefits students. The course approval forms must be submitted simultaneously for approval. Each department is responsible for ensuring that they submit a course approval form, and that the information is identical. Forms that are not identical or are not submitted simultaneously will not be approved. 

Whenever there is a change to a cross-listed course, both departments must submit a course approval form reflecting the change. Once again, the course approval forms must be identical, and must be submitted simultaneously for the change to be approved. A department cannot change a cross-listed course without a proper submission from the collaborative department. Additionally, in order to sever a cross-listing, both departments must submit a course approval form removing the cross-listing. On the form, each department should explain the reason for ending the cross-listing.

Remember, a cross-listed course is a single course offered collaboratively through two different departments. It is the responsibility of both departments to coordinate in the scheduling and maintenance of cross-listed courses.
