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



On page 109, under the heading DEGREES, in the College of Education chapter of the Undergraduate Catalog, 2004-2006, make the following changes:


GENERAL REQUIREMENTS

1. [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 institution.
2. Except as otherwise indicated, credit by examination is treated as any other earned credit in meeting degree requirements.
3. 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.
4. To graduate, all students must have a University grade point average of at least 2.00.
5. 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.



RATIONALE:
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.
