Edit Course

Course Inventory Management

All courses are proposed, edited or banked through Course Inventory Management. You can login with your EWU SSO.

Reasons to edit

You must edit a course if there will be a change in:

    • Course title, subject code or number
    • Course prerequisites
    • Course credits
    • Grading mode
    • Course description
    • Crosslist or general education information
    • Mode of instruction
    • Move to stacked course delivery

You may also bank a course to remove it from the Catalog.

Editing a course

Before you edit a course, familiarize yourself with the information expected for the fields you intend to edit and prepare any additional materials that might be needed.

After you log in to CIM, you will be directed to the CIM home. Here you can edit an existing course or return to a new course proposal that has been saved but not yet submitted.

CIM home with Edit option


    1. Use the search box to search current courses. Select Search Current. Results will appear in the box below.
    2. Click to select the course you want to edit. Information about the course will appear below.
    3. Click Edit Course. An Edit Course form will open in a new window.
    4. Make your edits. See Course Form Fields for details about each field.
    5. You have three options for saving changes:
      • Save & Submit - saves your changes and submits the proposal for review, starting the workflow.
      • Save Changes - saves your changes without submitting.
      • Cancel - discards your changes.

After submission

An email is sent to notify each person in the workflow that a task in CIM is waiting his or her review. As only one email is sent, it is the responsibility of the submitter to follow the proposal and make sure each step in the workflow is complete on time.


If modification is needed during the approval process, this can be handled by one of the following methods.

Graduate course modifications

You must respond to CPAC questions for graduate courses within two weeks or else the proposal will rollback to the start of the workflow.

Banking a course

If you want to remove a course from the Catalog, you can bank it. Before you bank a course, please consult with Mark Ward or Scott Eubanks. Once you have determined it's appropriate to bank your course you may proceed.
