The Committee on Courses of Study records consist of minutes, correspondence, and proposed academic regulations dating from 1919 to 1935.

The logistics of scheduling meetings are also discussed in the correspondence. Draft and final versions of proposed academic regulations are also included.
The Committee on Courses of Study was established to formulate university-wide policies and regulations on such matters as course offerings, military instruction, and academic standards. Members were appointed from both the faculty and administration. Meetings were held at the suggestion of a member of the committee or upon advice from the president of the university. Actions of the committee were reported to and considered by the President and the University Senate. The committee existed as early as 1917; the date of its final discontinuation is unknown. In January 1929, the Committee on Courses of Study changed its name to the Committee on Instruction. In April 1930, the name was changed, again, to the Committee on Educational Standards and Academic Regulations. No apparent modification of duties accompanied the name changes.
