Adopted April 16, 2007, Amended July 22, 2008
Each year departments are asked to deactivate (remove from the catalog) courses in which there has been no enrollment in the previous five years. Courses may be reactivated when a department/college is ready to teach the course again.
To request course reactivation, the department chair must send a memo through the college's Associate Dean to the University Courses and Curricula Committee.
The following information must be included in the memo or in the attachments to the memo.
Adopted November 15, 2010
A college that would like to reactivate a specialization or an emphasis within a degree program shall prepare a memo to the UCCC with the request after approval has been granted at the department and college levels. The memo should be accompanied by the appropriate catalog copy. The catalog copy must contain the specific courses that are required (18 credits or more for an undergraduate specialization or 12 credits for a graduate level specialization, fewer credits for an emphasis). There can be not changes in the specialization or emphasis from what was previously "deactivated" except for the substitution of courses that have been replaced by other courses or the elimination of courses that are no longer offered. If the previous catalog copy did not specify the courses required for the specialization or the emphasis, the courses must be specified for reactivation for the specialization or emphasis.
The process shall be valid for the reactivation of specializations/emphases within a degree which have been "deactivated" from a period of no longer than five years.
The proposal is in keeping with the approval by the Academic Affairs Council to increase from three to five years, the time period for which a program my be "deactivated" without requiring formal Board approval when the program is reactivated.
