Extensive Laboratory Forms and Procedures
Calendar of Deadlines:
For many faculty, the Extensive Laboratory Classification application will be a project that is worked on during a semester. In order to aid in the preparation process, a calendar has been created which will list the fall, spring, and summer semester dates; semester holidays; curriculum deadlines; and ELC application deadlines. It is important to note that unless you are making changes to a course that will affect your course outline or instilling major changes to the curriculum of the course, the laboratory will not have to go to the Chancellor's Office for re-approval. If, however, either of those stipulations apply to your altered lab course, the curriculum deadline dates should become part of your preparatory timeline.
The deadline for the application for the Fall 2021 semester is 6 pm on September 1 per the MOU; which means you must have at least the application submitted to Academic Affairs by this date and time. If your packet of materials is not ready for submission by September 1, then you may delay submitting it until September 17. Packets will not be accepted past 12 pm, September 17 .
For a written explanation of the application process as well as a checklist to aid in the gathering of materials, see How to Apply for Extensive Laboratory Classification. To download the application itself, see Application Form (Please download the application form prior to filling it out. The online version will not allow saved changes.)

Extensive Lab Status renewal:
Extensive Lab status shall be reviewed by the ELC as part of the six-year Instructional Program Review cycle to determine whether the laboratory class continues to meet the established criteria for Extensive Lab status. For courses that have undergone significant changes, you will be asked to identify the criteria that have changed and resubmit all required documentation for approval. To download the Renewal Request Form, see Request to Continue Extensive Lab Status Form.
The ELC Committee will be holding workshops on the application and submission procedure in early fall 2020 at a TBD time. In these workshops, members of the Extensive Laboratory Committee will explain the application process, documentation, and how to calculate the adjusted teaching overload.
Per the CCFF Contract, the Extensive Lab Committee consists of faculty members appointed by the Faculty Senate to represent each of the instructional divisions. It also consists of managers appointed by the Vice President of Academic Affairs. These committee members should be used as resources for faculty who may have questions regarding the application, submission process, workload calculations, etc.
