Policy Governing Active/Dormant/Expired Courses

Once approved, a course becomes a regular, self-renewing part of a department’s curriculum, unless that course is not taught for four consecutive years. After four years of inactivity, a course is classified as “dormant,” and cannot be taught unless re-approved by the Curriculum Committee. After eight consecutive years of inactivity, a course officially expires, and is no longer a curricular asset of any department.
