Please note that before approval, ALL COURSES within the immersion must have been previously approved for General Education credit. To submit a series of courses for a General Education Immersion, the Immersion Approval Form must first be approved by the curriculum committees associated with the proposing academic unit(s), and then the college(s) or center(s) where the courses are offered. Once these approvals are in place, the Immersion Approval Form should be sent to the Chair of the General Education Committee.
Once the new immersion is approved by the General Education Committee (GEC), the GEC Chair will send the approved immersion proposal to the Office of the Provost.
The Office of the Provost will send the approved immersion proposal and an official campus notification to Marketing and Communications, Registrar's Office and the applicable college dean/associate dean.
All changes to an immersion must be approved by the appropriate academic unit(s) curriculum committee(s), the college curricular committee(s) and then submitted to the current chair of the General Education Committee (GEC) to ensure that all courses have been approved as Gen Ed courses.
Approved changes to an immersion will be reflected on the updated curriculum table that is submitted by the college during the annual bulletin process. At that time, the following updates will occur: update to immersion's program page on the RIT Programs of Study website, subsequent fall undergraduate bulletins.
