Inactivation of Courses Policy


The Inactivation of Courses Policy allows for the inactivation of courses that have not been offered in four years. Each year in early spring as part of the catalog update process, the Registrar’s Office will forward to each academic unit courses from that unit that have not been offered in 4 years, for review for inactivation.  Certain courses that may be offered infrequently, such as New/Special Topics courses, Internships and Independent Studies, will be excluded from the list.  If the program does not request that a certain course be kept active, the course will be inactivated when the catalog information is updated. If it is desired at a later date to reactivate the course, the unit will inform its curriculum approval entity, and then notify the Registrar’s Office to reactivate.

Student Prefered Names Policy


This policy is designed to recognize that many students use first names other than their legal names to identify themselves. This policy makes official University use of preferred names for students in certain instances, while maintaining the official, legal name when required. Congruent with Pacific University’s commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive campus environment, this policy aims to support the transgender and gender-neutral student populations, as well as students who prefer to be known by nicknames.
