PROPOSED CHANGES IN THE APPLICABILITY OF COURSES TAKEN ON A PASS/FAIL BASIS IN THE RED MCCOMBS SCHOOL OF BUSINESS CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

 

In Chapter 3, on page 45, in the section DEGREES, under the heading APPLICABILITY OF CERTAIN COURSES, under the subheading COURSES TAKEN ON THE PASS/FAIL BASIS, make the following changes:

A business student may count toward the degree up to four one-semester courses in elective subjects outside the major taken on the pass/fail basis; only electives, nonbusiness electives, and upper-division nonbusiness elective may be taken on the pass/fail basis. The student may also take examinations for credit on the pass/fail basis; credit earned by examination is not counted toward the total of four courses that the student may take pass/fail. [If a student chooses to major in a subject in which he or she has taken a course pass/fail, the major department decides whether the course may be counted toward the student's major requirements.]

If a student decides to major in a subject in which he or she has taken a course on the pass/fail basis, it is generally the prerogative of the major department to decide whether the course will be counted toward degree requirements; in the McCombs School of Business, such courses may not be counted toward the major. Complete rules on registration on the pass/fail basis are given in General Information.

Rationale: This change is being made to make the text of the catalog consistent with current college policy
