Faculty Senate Minutes

Course Prerequisite Proposal
Academic Policies Committee proposes to add a policy to clarify course perquisites. The following statement would be added to the Undergraduate catalog on page 49 following Grade Changes.
Courses may have a series of prerequisites (satisfactory completion of a prior course, minimum GPA or earned credits, placement test scores, etc.). Students who do not meet the stated prerequisite(s) may be removed from a course at the discretion of the professor.
Academic Policies Committee proposes to modify the section Taking Less Advanced Course to allow students to retake a less advanced course to improve their GPA to meet minimum competency requirements, or to satisfy graduation requirements. Modifications would keep this policy and the repeat policy consistent.
Taking a Less Advanced Course
Students do not receive credit for a less advanced course if they have already demonstrated competency by passing a more advanced course. For example, MATH 100 and 101 may not be taken for credit after MATH 161, and FREN 201 may not be taken for credit after FREN 202. Students who wish to review less advanced material may do so on an audit basis. However, a less advanced course may be retaken to improve the GPA, to meet minimum competency requirements, or to satisfy graduation requirements.
