CHANGES TO THE CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION COURSES
SECTION IN THE COLLEGE OF EDUCATION CHAPTER OF
THE UNDERGRADUATE CATALOG 2006-2008



On page 110, under the heading DEGREES, in the College of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION COURSES

Credit that a University student in residence earns simultaneously by correspondence or extension from the University or elsewhere or in residence at another school will not be counted toward a degree in the College of Education unless specifically approved in advance by the dean. In the semester they plan to graduate, students may not take any course to be counted toward the degree at another institution or by correspondence; students who plan to graduate at the end of the summer session may request approval to take [correspondence or] transfer work only in the first summer term.

[No more than 30 percent of the semester hours required for any degree offered in the College of Education may be taken by correspondence.]



RATIONALE:
The College of Education does not monitor how many hours students take by correspondence, so we do not need this statement in the catalog. We do not allow correspondence course work to be taken in the summer if a student is graduating that semester.
