| On page 109, under the heading DEGREES, in the College
of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make
the following changes:
|Students seeking early childhood through grade four certification
must complete in residence at least twenty-four semester hours in the
professional development sequence, including student teaching.] All
College of Education students seeking teacher certification must complete
the entire professional development sequence of coursework in residence. Residence credit includes
only courses taken at the University; it does not include credit by examination,
courses taken by extension or correspondence, or courses taken at another
|| Except as otherwise indicated, credit by examination is treated as any
other earned credit in meeting degree requirements.
|| With the exception of credit earned by examination, each course counted
toward the degree or toward certification requirements must be taken on
the letter-grade basis, unless the course is offered only on the pass/fail
basis. Credit earned by examination on the pass/fail basis may be counted
toward degree and certification requirements.
|| To graduate, all students must have a University grade point average
of at least 2.00.
|| A student may not earn both the Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and
the Bachelor of Arts with an intercollege major in kinesiology and health.
We divide students into small cohorts when they enter the professional development
sequence. They continue through a three-semester sequence with the same group
of students, taking the same classes. Consequently, we do not accept courses
in transfer from other schools.
