Deactivations or Terminations of Majors, Minors, or Certificates

Deactivation or Reactivation

Effective this date and until rescinded, deactivation (temporary suspension) of an educational program, degree, or major may be approved by the President of the University of Georgia without obtaining Board of Regents' approval. Deactivation is for a period not to exceed two academic years to allow for program review, to consider enrollment problems, to deal with faculty shortages, or for other similar reasons. The President may subsequently reactivate the program within that two-year period without obtaining Board of Regents' approval. However, the deactivation or reactivation will be reported to the Chancellor by the  resident. If the program has not been reactivated by the end of the second academic year, the President should take action to terminate the program. A deactivated program remains an authorized program at the institution, but new students are no longer permitted to enroll. The deactivated program will not be listed in the Bulletin.

A proposal for termination (discontinuation) of an educational program, degree, or major will be submitted to the Chancellor for review and recommendation for action by the Board of Regents. Termination means that the institution is no longer authorized to offer the program. Subsequent offering of the program must be initiated by a proposal for a new program.
