PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS FOR GRADUATION IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OFTHE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002
In Chapter 3, on page 44, in the section GRADUATION, under the heading SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS OF THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS, make the following change:
3. If a student has been given permission by the dean to take correspondence work along with residence coursework during his or her last semester, the correspondence work (including examination and grading) must be completed [ at least fifteen days before the end of the semester or summer session] by the deadline to apply for graduation. [ If the student has been given permission to take correspondence work to complete requirements during the last semester but is not also enrolled in residence coursework, the student must complete correspondence work by the deadline for registering in absentia.]
Rationale: This change is being made to bring the catalog into alignment with current dean's office policy. The policy for students enrolled in residence was made consistent with that of students enrolled in absentia due to the high removal rate from graduation certification of students who failed to complete correspondence courses in time for certification.
