Coordinating Board staff may recommend to the institution's
governing board the closure of any non-exempt degree program which
has been on the annual list of low-producing programs for three or
more consecutive years. If the governing board does not accept the
recommendation to close the program, then the university system or,
where a system does not exist, the institution must identify the program
recommended for closure on the next legislative appropriations request
submitted by the system or institution. If a system or institution
is required to identify a degree program on its legislative appropriations
request, the system or institution should also develop a plan to allow
the degree program to achieve the minimum standard for the degree
awarded, or if the standard is not attainable, provide a rationale
describing the merits of continuing the degree program.
