|PART 1||TEXAS HIGHER EDUCATION COORDINATING BOARD|
|CHAPTER 9||PROGRAM DEVELOPMENT IN PUBLIC TWO-YEAR COLLEGES|
|SUBCHAPTER M||BLOCK SCHEDULING|
|RULE §9.666||Demonstration of Hardship|
If a public junior college does not offer the minimum number of block scheduled programs as described by this subchapter, the institution must provide detailed written documentation to the coordinating board describing the reason why offering the required number of programs creates a hardship for the institution and how students would be impacted by offering additional block scheduled programs. Factors creating an institutional hardship may include, but are not limited to, programmatic accreditation requirements; statutory requirements; number of students enrolled in the program; availability of faculty; or availability of classroom, laboratory, or other types of instructional/experiential spaces. The Coordinating Board will review the documentation provided and make a determination to approve or deny a request to not offer the minimum number of block scheduled programs as defined by this subchapter.
