CORRESPONDENCE AND EXTENSION COURSES
|On page 110, under the heading DEGREES, in the College of Education
chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following
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 [
] 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.
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.
