Annual Course Catalog Cleanup

Each year, courses (at least two years old) that have not had enrolled class sections during the previous six years are automatically suspended unless ongoing active status is approved by the college dean.

Program Data Sheets are updated annually with a report of inactive courses, made available during the fall semester for department review. Departments wishing to maintain ongoing active status for a particular course may submit a request and rationale to their college dean.

In addition to undergoing departmental review before suspension, all courses are checked to ensure they are not currently required for any program, through a catalog search and a review of 5-year course rotation plans.

To reactivate a suspended course, departments should submit to the college dean a course change form including evidence that the course meets current standards and is consistent with other elements of the curriculum. If the request is approved, the dean will forward it to the Office of Academic Programs.
