ALMOST 50 course offerings will be axed, seven will be revitalised and major changes will occur for a further 61 as Charles Sturt University looks to slash costs.
Changes will impact all campus, however, CSU says only four per cent of current students are enrolled in a course approved for change.
At the Port Macquarie campus, CSU will be shifting the Bachelor of Exercise Science (Hons) to online, and no longer offer the Bachelor of Human Services (with specialisations).
CSU acting vice chancellor Professor John Germov said students in a course approved for changes will be able to complete their studies.
"We expect to retain all of our students due to being able to provide teaching out arrangements, equivalent options and the fact that many of these course offerings have few or no students enrolled," he said.
"There are a small number of prospective students who have enrolled in courses undergoing changes. These students will be contacted to discuss an alternate enrolment plan that enables them to reach their specific goals.
"Overall, these changes will strengthen our financial position, meet the needs of our regional communities and deliver a better experience for our students."
