Low-Enrolled Courses and Class Size Policy

Policy Statement

In order for a course to be offered in any term, minimum enrollment criteria must be met or the course will be cancelled. The following minimums have been established for each of the following categories:

Undergraduate lower division (000-199) -- 16

Undergraduate upper division (200-499) -- 12

Graduate lower division (Master's) (500-699) -- 10

Graduate upper division (Doctoral) (700-999) -- 6

Procedure for requesting exemption:

When pre-term registration data shows that a class is unlikely to make the approved minimum, the class should either be cancelled (by the department) or written requests for the continuation (with reasons stated) should be sent to the Provost PRIOR to the beginning of the term in which the course is to be offered.
