Online/Hybrid Course Development Approval Process Deadlines

The following schedule indicates key deadline dates for online and hybrid course approval and development.

UNT Dallas' official learning management system is Canvas. Canvas is used for all official, for-credit UNT Dallas online and hybrid courses.

New course requests or requests to change delivery format that do not meet these deadlines may be removed from the schedule. Early submissions are recommended to allow adequate time for course development. Instructor training may fall outside the listed timeframes.

Final Quality Review deadline refers to having the review complete. All course development should be completed well before posted Final Quality Review deadline allowing time for DLIT to review completed course. 

Courses previously approved, fully developed, and previously taught in Canvas may be added to a given semester schedule up to the "Final Quality Review" date listed below for each semester.
