The APC of USFSM is responsible for addressing issues and making recommendations pertaining to undergraduate and graduate courses, curricula, and instructional programs to the USFSM Academic Council (AC) and reporting to the USFSM Faculty Senate. The APC shall advise the AC on the development of future USFSM undergraduate and graduate programs, including reviewing and updating academic goals and objectives.
To this end, the APC will consider undergraduate and graduate policies related to admissions criteria, orientation procedures, academic standards, curriculum, and graduation requirements. Professional program certification or accreditation requirements will be considered in addressing issues for undergraduate and graduate policies.
In addition, the APC will serve as a review body to other USFSM councils and committees on matters of curriculum policy and as a recipient of requests for the development of undergraduate courses or programs, new graduate programs or changes in current graduate programs.
