Program Mode of Delivery Elimination
Program, Degree, Major Elimination
An undergraduate program, degree, or major elimination is approved at the college level, by the Faculty Senate, the NSHE Academic Affairs Council, and the Board of Regents. Once the Board of Regents provides the official notification of the approval of the elimination, a Provost Alert is issued by the Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost. The Provost Alert serves as the official notification to the campus that the program has been eliminated. The unit can then begin the process to eliminate courses, if necessary.
Undergraduate Program, Degree, Major Hold
A program, degree, or major can be placed on hold for a maximum of 3 years with the approval of the Executive Vice President and Provost and the Vice Provost for Academic Affairs. It must then either be opened for admissions and the courses taught or eliminated.
