Restructuring or Discontinuing Majors/Programs

This document provides a link to campus-level policy concerning requests to close or suspend admissions to existing academic programs.

From time to time it becomes necessary and desirable to close admissions to an existing major, or to suspend admissions while an existing program is restructured or substantially revised. 

Faculty considering such actions must follow the campus policy, which was created to protect the interest of students who may be enrolled in programs slated for closure or reformulation.  If suspension of admissions or program closure may be on the horizon, it is important to consult early and often with your Associate Dean, as well as with the Assistant Dean for Academic Planning, and the Provost's Office of Academic Planning and Institutional Research. 

For a more detailed discussion concerning other matters related to department/program restructuring, which may relate to suspending admissions to and closing academic programs, please see the L&S Policy on Creating, Restructuring, or Discontinuing Departments, Programs, and Department-like Units .
