When should a "New Course" proposal be submitted? An old course will need to generate a new course (with a different number) when one or more of the following conditions occur:

- Learning outcomes change
- Number of credits change
- Lab or lecture component is added or deleted
- Prerequisite/Corequisite changes
- Course requires renumbering
