CHANGES TO THE ADMISSION SECTION IN
THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008



On page 108, under the heading ADMISSION AND REGISTRATION, in the College of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


ADMISSION

Admission and readmission of all students to the University is the responsibility of the director of admissions. Information about admission to the University is given in General Information.

Information about admission to teacher preparation programs is available in the Office of the Dean, George I. Sánchez Building 216.

Admission to majors in kinesiology is restricted. Students should see an adviser for information.


RATIONALE:
The enrollment in all kinesiology majors has grown dramatically in recent years so that we currently have over 1000 majors in the department. This number is up from 500 majors in 2000. We are struggling to keep pace with student demands for classes, faculty, advisors, and classroom space. Our Department of Kinesiology and Health Education is currently working on an enrollment management plan, which will be submitted to the provost in the spring. We have a formal request with the provost at this time to restrict all majors for the spring of 2006.
