The UW-River Falls Chancellor issues this policy in accordance with the Administrative Policy process.

Failure to adhere to the provisions of this policy may result in appropriate disciplinary action as provided under existing procedures applicable to students, faculty, and staff, and/or civil or criminal prosecution.
Courses that are part of on-going Outreach programs such as those listed below should be reviewed every three years by the Provost in consultation with the academic Dean and the Dean of Outreach and Graduate Studies to determine if the courses/programs should continue to be offered through Outreach/104 funding or moved to GPR funding.
The academic deans will submit a list of and justification for courses being considered as possible Outreach offerings to the Provost ninety days before the start of each term. The Provost will review the potential Outreach offerings in light of the University’s need to meet enrollment and tuition revenue targets. Courses approved as Outreach offerings will be managed by the appropriate college Outreach program manager.
Courses submitted for review less than 90 days prior to the beginning of the term will only be reviewed if there are extenuating circumstances.
The Offices of Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs and the Vice Chancellor for Administration and Finance are responsible for overseeing the implementation of this policy and to insure that UW-RF meets GPR enrollment and tuition revenue targets.
