When a course is no longer useful, the department should take the initiative to have it discontinued. To discontinue a course, log into the Course Inventory Management (CIM) system. Upon submission, CIM will route the discontinuation request through the necessary departmental, college, and Graduate College workflow for review and approvals.
- Use the ecosystem to see the impact of your discontinuation and notify appropriate departments
so they can update their courses accordingly.
The 6-10 Policy provides a mechanism for reviewing offerings for relevance and ongoing need. It requires that courses be removed from the Courses of Instruction within the Academic Catalog if they meet either of the following conditions:
- average enrollment for the last two successive offerings of the course is fewer than 6 in a 500-, 600-, or 700-level course OR fewer than 10 in a 100-, 200-, 300-or 400-level course; or
- the course, regardless of level, has not been offered within the last three years.
Enrollment Warnings will be noted if courses have only been offered once and enrollments were below the guidelines outlined above. These courses were not in violation at the time of review, but may be in violation if enrollments are low when the courses are offered again.
