An overview of the pieces

The Academic Catalog review consists of several different components, each on their own platforms.

  • College academic policies are reviewed on this website: https://catalog.asu.edu/status.
  • DARS audit verifications are completed via internal process in your college. Please contact your DARS encoder for more information.
  • Degree Search textual content is reviewed in PeopleSoft: https://webapp4.asu.edu/myasu/pscs.
  • Major Maps are reviewed using Build a Major Map: https://asu.edu/bamm (Firefox works best).
  • Now that all Transfer Pathways are in MyPath2ASU®, Pathway Builder is no longer being used for review.

  

College academic policies review

College policies are available to view and edit at https://catalog.asu.edu/status.

Users must sign into the site by clicking on the sign in link on the upper-right corner of this website to view instructions and access the information they are required to review.

College policies are reviewed by the Catalog Coordinator. Access is granted automatically by the catalog administrator when the coordinator is named by their dean (usually early August).

DARS audit verification

Please work directly with your DARS encoder to ensure all DARS audit verifications are completed by the deadline.

Degree Search textual content review

Catalog Coordinators and others authorized to access the catalog review forms must sign into the PeopleSoft site to review the catalog content for Degree Search. This can be accessed by the link below or by the quicklinks at the top of the My ASU page:

  1. Login to https://webapp4.asu.edu/myasu/pscs (or from My ASU).
  2. Follow the path ASU Customizations --> ASU Admissions --> Catalog Review --> Catalog Review Summary. Only users who have approval permissions in the catalog review workflow will be able to access this page. It may help to add this path to the My Favorites PS section. header bar
  3. On your catalog review summary page, you will find all of the programs in your academic organization and which level they are at in the workflow. While all programs will show, you only need to focus on programs currently at your level that require your review and approval. Catalog review summary page When you click the link, you will be taken to the program form page in order to review and approve the program.
  4. To continue reviewing programs, please refer to the instructions on the Catalog Review Process and Guidelines page.

To assign a catalog reviewer:

  1. Work with your departments to identify:
    • the person responsible for making the initial edits to the programs (originator)
    • the person at the department level who will be responsible for approving the edits*
  2. The catalog coordinator will be responsible for all college-level approvals. If there is no department-level reviewer necessary, please indicate that the catalog coordinator or originator should fulfill that role.
  3. Submit the catalog review users template. This template is sent by email directly to the catalog coordinators. Send the names of originators and department review leaders to academic.catalog@asu.edu and include the department name, user's ASURITE and the user’s email address.
  4. Please note that form approvals are first come, first served. If you have multiple reviewers assigned to one department in your college, the program appears in the workflow summary for each user. The users will be responsible for reviewing only the programs for which they are responsible. For this reason, it may be best to have one central contact who is authorized to make approvals for each departmental or school.
  5. The Provost's office will grant PS role access for all users. Catalog coordinators will be listed as the user's supervisor for data access, and will be sent an email with a PeopleSoft link to approve the users' access requests.
  6. Any additions to or deletions from the users list after the template is submitted should be emailed to academic.catalog@asu.edu with the new user's name, ASURITE and department name, as well as a notation if the new user is primarily a faculty member.

*This may be the same person.

Catalog Coordinators are ultimately responsible for the programs under review.
