Classes can be cancelled based upon low enrollment. A department chair may recommend cancellation of a class for approval of the Dean and the Provost. Class cancellations can also originate from the Provost Office. The students are advised of the pending cancellation and the other options by either the instructor on record or the chair of the department. When a class is cancelled, the students are dropped without financial penalty or any record of the class on their transcripts. Additionally, the students are required to meet with their academic advisors and/or department chairs to obtain alternative classes.
