History

  • Policy Number: SP.15.007
  • Version:
  • Drafted By: Academic Affairs
  • Approved By: Richard R. Rush
  • Approval Date: March 29, 2016
  • Effective Date: Fall 2016
  • Supercedes: Amends Policy SP.01.002 

Purpose

Amends policy SP 01-02 “Minimum Characteristics of Majors and Minors” to maintain consistency with updated Policy on Academic Minors (SP 15-06).

Background

The information on the minimum characteristics of majors and minors in the newly proposed policy conflicts with the older policy. This policy replaces the older policy, and also removes language that is no longer needed (e.g., because it is contained in other subsequently passed policies).
