Policy

Policy Statement

The decision to close a course to enrollment is dependent on balancing many factors including faculty workloads, budgetary considerations, required course as opposed to elective courses, frequency of course offerings as reflected in the approved course map, and efficient student progression, among other factors. If faculty want to propose closing enrollment in a course for any reason, they must discuss this with the appropriate program Associate Dean before advisement and registration begins for the involved semester. The Associate Dean, in consultation with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, will make the final decision. In cases where mediation is needed, the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs will make the final decision. Likewise, when a program is considering closing a course for any given term, the program Associate Dean will consult with the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs. The program Associate Dean will inform the SON Assistant Dean for Student Affairs when the decision to close enrollment in a specific course has been made.
