UCA Curriculum Forms

Note: Curriculum forms have undergone another light but comprehensive update (March 2016). Please use the new forms for any curriculum items initiated after March 1, 2016. As further corrections and updates are introduced, the date of the update will be indicated.

Compatible with Word for Mac and Word for Windows: In order to provide for use in both Word for Mac and Word for Windows, the UCA curriculum forms have been reworked using cross-platform compatible content controls. Filenames of the reworked forms include the infix <-cpc> (for cross-platform compatible). Tests of the forms have all been carried out in the latest version of Word for Mac and in Word 2013 for Windows. If you haven’t yet, you may want to ask IT for an upgrade.
