In Chapter 3, on page 51, in the section DEGREES, under the heading PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, under subheading HONORS PROGRAM, make the following change:

ADMISSION

Admission to the Business Honors Program is limited to a small number of exceptional students who are chosen on a competitive basis. Admission decisions are made by the Business Honors Program Committee. Most students enter the program as freshmen, but some are admitted as sophomores.

Students entering the University and the Red McCombs School of Business as freshmen may apply to the Business Honors Program by completing a separate application form available from the [Undergraduate Dean's] Business Honors Program Office. The Business Honors Program Committee considers the student's SAT I or American College Testing Program score, high school class rank, preparatory courses, extracurricular activities, evidence of leadership ability, and other objective criteria.

Students may also seek admission to the Business Honors Program during the spring semester of their freshmen year. To be considered for admission, the student must have completed in the fall and spring semesters of the freshman year at least twenty-four semester hours of college-level coursework[, including] ; coursework must include Economics 304K and 304L and Mathematics [403K and 403L] 408K or 408C, and Mathematics 408L or 408D. He or she must also have fulfilled the foreign language requirement for the BBA degree. In addition to the criteria listed above for freshman applicants, the Business Honors Program Committee considers the student's University grade point average and the number, type, and rigor of the courses the student has taken at the University. No student will be admitted to the Business Honors Program who has received credit for more than one of the core courses listed below in a regular (nonhonors) section. Application materials and information about deadlines are available from the Business Honors Program Office.

Rationale: The change in mathematics reflects the proposal change for all business students to requirement 4c on page 45.
