* While UPC accepts requests on a rolling basis, these dates represent the latest dates that will provide enough time for the committee to review and make decisions prior to the upcoming due dates for UUPC review. Submissions to the COE UPC, however, do not guarantee approval of requests; submissions therefore should be made earlier rather than later in order to accommodate for time that may be required to address any recommendations for revisions. This strategy will also be helpful in case UUPC has recommendations for revisions.

Please see University’s UUPC website for due dates for UUPC, UFS Steering Committee, and UFS Meetings.
