CANCELLATION OF CLASSES
There are times when classes may be canceled from the semester course offering.  Many factors are considered before a class is canceled.  Three major factors are:

1. Instructor availability.  Sometimes it is necessary to cancel a class because a qualified instructor is not available. graduation

2. Low enrollment.  The general rule is that a class may be canceled if it has less than 50% of its capacity registered for it.

3. Room/time conflicts.  Class changes or additions may trigger a need to cancel or move certain classes. 

Every effort will be made to minimize the frequency of cancellations.
