CourseLeaf Implementation Project

The University of South Carolina has partnered with Leepfrog Technologies to implement a comprehensive Content Management System called CourseLeaf.   The new system will replace the current Academic Bulletin and the Academic Programs Proposal System (APPS) web-based platforms. This page is intended to provide general information and updates about the implementation of the CourseLeaf software.


The university’s current Bulletin system and Academic Proposal System (APPS) have evolved beyond the functional, integration, and capacity needs to support its academic program records and processes. The transition to the CourseLeaf system will align with recent university-wide academic and student information system improvements.  Users can look forward to a more functional, intuitive, and engaging design that will support the current organizational practices.
