Frequently asked questions
Kuali is the curriculum management platform used at ASU. Kuali has two components: Kuali Curriculum Management (CM) and Kuali Build.
Kuali allows faculty, staff and administrators at ASU to electronically create, review and approve curricular proposals such as new courses and programs, course and program modifications, academic planning, fees, topics, instruction modes, and other curricular related items. It provides a way to track where a proposal is in the approval process and to access proposals from any ASU unit.
More information about Kuali is found in the Kuali Training Manual (Google doc).
If you already have a Kuali Curriculum Management (CM) account, go to MyASU and click on the link under Teaching & Student Support Tools > Curriculum Management (Kuali).
If you have questions or issues regarding access to Kuali, contact CurriculumQuestions@asu.edu.
Please see the list of curriculum contacts (Google doc).
The Degree Search homepage allows users to search for undergraduate or graduate programs, minors and certificates. Once you've clicked on a specific program, the plan code is displayed in the right sidebar and in the URL. For example, for Applied Mathematics, BS, the plan code is ASMATBS.
If you have access to Kuali Curriculum Management, you can also click on the "Programs" tab to search and find programs using plan codes or keywords.
Different types of requests have different workflow steps and timelines. More workflow levels mean the proposal will likely take longer to be completed. The current workflow step of your course proposal, along with possible current approvers, is found at the top in the Workflow Status box.
To see how many steps remain before it's implemented, click "expand" just above the upper right hand corner of the Workflow Status. This will also show you all possible approvers along every step of the way.
The best way is to contact one of the approvers at the current workflow step. This is visible when you open up the proposal. You can ask that they edit the proposal on your behalf, or use the "Send Back" action to return it to you for changes.
This means a reviewer found something with the proposal that needs to be corrected or changed. As the originator, it is your responsibility to make the needed changes and return the form back into the workflow.
Please expand the workflow to see comments left by the user who returned the proposal to you. Also be sure to check the Comments on the right hand side to see what the questions or concerns are. When you finish editing the proposal and have resolved all concerns, click Resubmit in the upper right to submit the proposal back into the workflow. Until you do, nothing will happen with the proposal.
