Proposed changes to The admission and registration portion in the School of business Chapter in the Undergraduate Catalog 2014-2016
NAME OF DEGREE PROGRAM(S):
IF THE ANSWER TO ANY OF THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS IS YES, THE COLLEGE MUST CONSULT NEAL ARMSTRONG WHO WILL DETERMINE WHETHER SACS-COC APPROVAL IS NEEDED.:
• Is this a new degree program? No
• Does the program offer courses that will be taught off campus? No
• Will courses in this program be delivered electronically? No
EXPLAIN CHANGE TO DEGREE PROGRAM:
- Change BBA/MPA graduation requirements and timing so when BBA degree is complete, automatic graduation becomes the default. Rationale is to promote four year graduation rates, so students graduate after four years when the BBA requirements are met, rather than waiting another year to satisfy both BBA and MPA requirements and receive both degrees at the same time.
- Correct a one-hour error in graduate coursework hours required. Rationale is that incorrect information, possibly a typo, should be corrected.
- Not a change to the program, but changing language describing residency requirements to be more explicit. Rational is putting this information here rather than simply referencing another page makes it easier for students to see and understand.
SCOPE OF THE PROPOSED CHANGE(S):
Does this proposal impact other colleges/schools? If yes, then how?
If yes, impacted schools must be contacted and their response(s) included:
Does this proposal involve changes to the core curriculum or other basic education requirements (42-hour core, signature courses, flags)?
If yes, explain:
Will this proposal change the number of required hours for degree completion? If yes, please explain.
If yes, explain:
