Changing the Limited Access Status of an Undergraduate Program

This process should be used to change the limited access status of an undergraduate degree, major, or specialization. Limited access status creates selective admission to limit enrollment within a degree program and may be justified when student demand exceeds available resources such as student/faculty ratios, facilities, or equipment.

Note: This status requires the Approval of the State Board of Governors.
