Distance Learning Amendment Forms
DL amendment forms are a type of supplemental form important in the curriculum process.
In order to make your course DL-ready, you must create a DL amendment form. After
submitting your DL Amendment form, the DLC (Distance Learning Committee) will review
and approve the form before sending it to EDC.
Currently, Mt. SAC is using a Smartsheet process to collect forms for review. Please submit your form as a Word document.
