Retention on Undergraduate Courses in Catalogs - 1N1

  1. After consultation with the Curriculum Council and those responsible for production of the catalogue, the Provost will establish a deadline by which final decision must be reached regarding retention of courses in the forthcoming catalogue.

  2. The Registrar will then request the departments concerned to review all courses that have not been offered during the previous four academic years. This may result in the department requesting that a course be dropped, modified, or recommending that the course be retained. Form 90's should be submitted as appropriate.

  3. If the department recommends any action other than suspension of the catalogue listing of a course, that recommendation should be forwarded to the dean or director and appropriate school, college or unit committee for review and recommendation to the Faculty Senate Curriculum Council.

  4. The Curriculum Council will review the case that has been made for/against retention of the course and will make a final decision as to its retention.

  5. If the Curriculum Council votes to retain the course, then that course shall be retained in the catalogue. However, if the Curriculum Council has not acted on a course by the deadline (see 1), the course will be dropped from the forthcoming catalogue.
