Certain occupational educational programs must limit student enrollment to comply with rules, regulations, and prescribed procedures by state and/or national agencies for certification, registry, licensure, program accreditation, or limited College or community resources, local agency agreements, or industry employment standards.  This regulation ensures that all such programs establish criteria and a selection process that provide students an equitable opportunity for access and success.

The Office of the Chancellor delegates authority and responsibility to the Provost/Executive Vice Chancellor to approve all limited enrollment, selective admissions processes.
