  2. The curriculum representative will:
    1. Update enrollment projections in departmental records and notify the Chair(s)
    2. Department administrator(s) that the change is complete and,
    3. Send a request to Time Schedule Coordinator in Student and Academic Services to have the change implemented
  3. Time Schedule Coordinator in Student and Academic Services will
    1. Update the time schedule with the requested change,
    2. Request a new classroom if necessary, and
