Course Enrollment Minimums


  • Assistant to the Director - Christine Steggs: csteggs1@unl.edu,  908 South HARH, EC 0989   Phone: 402-472-8120

Courses that fall below the CASNR minimum must have a written justification on file in order for the faculty member to full receive credit for teaching the course. CASNR minimums: 15 students for 100-200 level courses; 10 for 300-400 level; 6 for 800 level; 6 for 400/800 level; 3 for 900 level. If a 400-level course is cross-listed with an 800-level course, the required minimum enrollment level is based on which level the majority of students are enrolled. For example, if the majority are enrolled in the 400 section, the total enrollment must be 10 or more.


Several weeks before the start of the semester through the first week of class, faculty with low-enrollment courses are to email a request with justification to the SNR director. The director will review all requests and will submit the approved requests to CASNR.
