CHANGES IN REQUIREMENTS FOR THE BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN II DEGREE IN THE COLLEGE OF LIBERAL ARTS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

On page 263, in the section DEGREES, make the following changes:

BACHELOR OF ARTS, PLAN II

The Plan II Honors Program is designed to provide a broad, liberal, and challenging education for a limited number of students whose high school class standing and admission test scores indicate strong academic potential and motivation. The enrollment in Plan II is limited; application to the program is separate from and in addition to application to the University. Application materials and information about deadlines are available from the Plan II office in Will C. Hogg 4.104 or online at http://www. dla.utexas.edu/~plan2/application/app.html. Transfer students may apply for admission, but an overall grade point average of at least [3.40] 3.80 is required, and it is the policy of the Plan II office not to consider applicants who will have earned more than thirty semester hours of college credit at the time of proposed entry into the program.

Rationale: The change in minimum Grade Point Average for transfer applicants reflects current practice, which reflects the accomplishments of current applicants.
