Policy Memorandum No. 15b

(Long title) Establishing the Unclassified Professional Student Admissions Category in the College of Education

Recommended by Commission on Graduate Studies and Research: May 22, 1979
Approved by University Council: June 4, 1979
Approved by the President: June 4, 1979
Effective: Immediately

This action establishes an Unclassified Professional Student Admissions Category in the College of Education. Admissions requirements include an accredited Bachelor's Degree plus appropriate professional experience. Under this admissions category, a maximum of twelve hours of courses may be taken on a Pass/Fail basis ONLY, and the courses taken may not be used toward a graduate degree, regardless of the quality of performance. This admission is a restricted admission and permits students to enter only certain approved courses in the College of Education recommending this admission. Individual faculty members will be allowed to reject from their courses anyone in this category who does not meet the normal prerequisite requirements. The policy will be monitored by the College of Education and evaluated after two years by the College of Education, working with the Graduate School. An interim review of the program will be held at the end of the implementation year in June, 1980, and quarterly thereafter, and an interim report will be submitted to the Commission on Graduate Studies and Research in the Fall of 1980. A two-year report will be prepared at the end of the 1980-81 academic year. Further details on this program are found in Appendix II of the minutes of the Commission on Graduate Studies and Research of May 22, 1979.
