11.5 Class Size

Approved by Academic Council on April 9, 1998; Administration on April 24, 2002

Class size should reflect the University's commitment to a superior, student centered learning experience. The faculty, department chairs and deans of individual schools and colleges are responsible for providing course offerings and class size consistent with superior pedagogy as well as efficient and effective use of faculty.

At the end of the preregistration period for each term, the University Registrar will distribute to the dean of each school or college a list of courses whose preregistrants are ten or fewer students in an undergraduate course or six or fewer students in a graduate course.

The dean and department chair will review reasons for maintaining or canceling each course. If the dean or department chair determines that a scheduled course will be canceled, students preregistered for the course will be notified in a timely fashion and provided assistance in finding an appropriate substitute course.
