PROPOSED CHANGES TO THE UNIVERSITY CHAPTER OF THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2000-2002

 

On page 15, in the section HONORS, under the heading GRADUATION WITH UNIVERSITY HONORS, add the following footnote for the Red McCombs School of Business:

To Graduate with University Honors, a student in the Red McCombs School of Business must have completed at least sixty semester hours of coursework in residence at the University.

Rationale: The faculty of the Red McCombs School of Business believes that the Honors designation should be indicative of the quality of the work performed by students in a competitive classroom setting. Therefore, the Honors designation should be earned based on sixty hours completed in residence.
