UNDERGRADUATE COUNCIL



Minutes of Undergraduate Council meeting on 04/04/2008


Academic Council Notes:
Unanimously Approved (Chitwood/Hopkins) 1. Changes in prerequisites for ES 446 were discussed and approved - Deans Hopkins and Chitwood indicated that there was really nothing new regarding these prerequisites and that they have been operating this way for 9 years. The Council approved this item, which was approved by Undergraduate Council pending a review to ensure that this will not overload the physics courses. 2. Academic Calendar - Dr. Fant discussed extending the registration period - There was some concern that leaving the registration period open longer might extend advising time for advisors (particularly faculty advisors) - the Council agreed that there should be consistency from semester to semester - no changes to the Academic Calendar (approved by Undergraduate Council) were made 3. New Undergraduate Degree Programs - Provost Stocks discussed the deadlines surrounding the creation of new programs - All must be submitted to IHL by March 1 and that IHL will not yeild on that date/deadline
