Compass Curriculum Submission


Compass Curriculum Submission

Compass Application Form

Compass Applications

Faculty may apply to have their courses added to the Compass Curriculum using the link above. After submission, courses must be reviewed and approved by the chair of the department offering the course (this process automated through the application system). Once applications have been approved by the department chair, they will be routed to the Compass Leadership Team for review. This process may take up to two months to complete, and the faculty submitting the application will be notified automatically by email once the application has been reviewed.

To Do Before Submitting

Unfortunately, the current application system cannot save applications before they are submitted to Department Chairs for review. The application must be completed in one attempt.

To prepare for your submission, you can review the following resources.

1. Read the Policies and Course Snapshots for each designation you will apply for.

2. Read the list of questions for each compass designation and prepare your answers.

3. Prepare a sample syllabus for the course which meets the designation requirements. Be sure to include the Compass Syllabus Descriptions.

4. Discuss the application with your Department Chair and collect their name and email address so they can approve the course.

Information about Renewal Applications

In fall of 2021, the Compass Curriculum transitioned our application system to a new software (from Cherwell into OnBase). Many courses scheduled for renewal have existing files in Cherwell with data and language that may be helpful as you apply to renew your course with Compass. If you would like to be emailed a copy of your previous application for a course, please reach out directly to Phillip Haisley -
