That's how it's supposed to work. It doesn't matter how many people could
sign up for the class -- it's how many people do
If the class has fewer than 20 students and is taught by a full-time faculty member or if it is a paper class (taught by anyone), it isn't required to have a curve (though the professor could presumably still have one). The school's handbook has a pretty good explanation on it (page 3): http://studentlife.law.wfu.edu/files/2011/11/handbook.2011.2012.pdf
