DELETION OF DEPARTMENTAL PROCESSING OF CHANGING MAJOR IN THE DEPARTMENT OF ADVERTISING IN THE COLLEGE OF COMMUNICATION CHAPTER, THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG, 2004-2006

On page 73, in the College of Communication chapter of The Undergraduate Catalog, 2002-04, under the heading DEGREES, make the following changes:


BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN ADVERTISING

{No change to introductory text}

[CHANGE-OF-MAJOR REQUIREMENTS]

[To change his or her major to advertising, a University student in any other field must submit an application package to the department. The application package consists of a one-page statement of purpose and one or more optional items, which may include up to three letters of recommendation, samples of the student’s ads or other creative work, and a résumé. To be eligible to apply for a change of major, the student must have completed sixty semester hours of coursework by the end of the semester of application, must have a University grade point average of at least 2.25, and must have earned a grade of at least B in Advertising 318J or be enrolled in that course.]


RATIONALE: The Department of Advertising no longer processes major changes by the students. The department now follows the guidelines for transfer and major change utilized by the other departments within the College. Removing this paragraph matches the other department’s catalog listing.
