Details of the charges can be referred to the constitution.
What is the timeline and procedure when course proposals or program changes are submitted?

When do I know my submission has been approved or if changes are needed?
One of the AACC co-Chairs will notify you the status of your submission. If changes are needed, authors are expected to make the changes in a timely manner so their submission can be forwarded to the next level without any delay.
