Ready to find out what MSU Denver can do for you? We’ve got you covered.
Once a proposal attached to academic credit is submitted, it is reviewed by the Office of Curriculum, Academic Effectiveness and Policy Development to ensure it meets the minimum requirements. If it does not, it is returned to the originator for updates. If it does meet the minimums and has the support of either the dean or an equivalent head of a unit, the badge moves forward to the University Badging Committee.
If the proposal does not contain academic credit where all the competencies are assessed in noncredit courses through Innovative and Life-long Learning, then academic departments and/or University units can propose a micro-credential in association with the Office of Innovative and Lifelong Learning. Any changes to noncredit courses will follow the MSU Denver Noncredit Continuing Education Course Guidelines. Approved proposals will be presented to the University Badging Committee as an information item.
The committee will review proposals for inclusion of all necessary components, appropriate categorization (for example, micro-credential without academic credit), quality, consistency, potential duplication with existing micro-credentials and possible conflicts or impacts on other academic or University units. The committee will automatically reject proposals that are incomplete or duplicate existing micro-credentials.
The Badging Committee will review proposals according to the following review schedule. Proposal submissions must be received in Curriculog by the last day of the calendar month.
