  1. Remove sentence about language proficiency requirement in admissions information. Rationale is this statement is unnecessary, as it is already part of University and business school admissions.
  2.

Rationale is to avoid possible student ethics violations in the Business Honors Program.
  3. Add BA 101S as prior credit accepted for students applying to BHP. Rationale is this class is allowed, along with MIS 301, as accepted regular section substitutions for the Honors sections of these requirements, so should be stated in the catalog as such.

  5. Replacing the slash in STA 371H/375H with “and/or” is to make the meaning of the slash explicit to students.
