PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM IN ACCOUNTING IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

In chapter 3, on page 47, in the section DEGREES, under the heading PROGRAM DEGREE REQUIREMENTS, under the subheading PROFESSIONAL PROGRAM IN ACCOUNTING, make the following changes:

[Continuance]

[Students in the PPA are expected to maintain a University grade point average of at least 3.00. A student whose grade point average falls below 3.00 is placed on probation for one semester. If the studentÁs grade point average is still below 3.00 at the end of the probationary semester, the student may be dropped from the program. A student with extremely poor academic performance may be dismissed from the program without a semester on probation. A PPA student who does not make satisfactory progress is usually encouraged to complete work toward the bachelorÁs degree under the major program in accounting.]

Probation

The PPA student is placed on probation if his or her grade point average in core undergraduate accounting courses falls below 3.00. Except with consent of the PPA director or assistant director, a student on probation may not take graduate accounting courses.


Dismissal

The student is dismissed from the PPA if (1) he or she fails to improve his or her academic performance significantly while on probation, or (2) he or she will not achieve a grade point average of 3.00 even by earning grades of A in all remaining core undergraduate accounting courses.
