  3. Declaration of Major Policy
    The "Declaration of Major Policy" was presented to the Undergraduate Council. It states that all the students must be officially declared in a major or a pre-major before they register for more than 36 credits. It also states that transfer students who transfer more than 36 credits are required to declare a major(or a pre-major) at the time of entry to USF. Transfer students who have not declared a major or (pre-major) and who have completed more than 36 hours of college coursework will not be allowed to register for future credit coursework at the university until they have declared a major or a pre-major.The Declaration of Major Policy was approved by all in the UGC.

    Recency of Credit/Courses
    The UGC discussed the issue of the course credits which are old and whether they can be applied towards graduation. At present there are some departmental policies for determining the recency of credits and no standard university policy. The goal is to develop a standard university policy. Members of the UGC had concerns whether the universal policy at this time was appropriate or not.

    The UGC continued its ongoing discussion of its operating procedures and rewording of the Council's charge. A list of recommendations on operating procedures were given by the UGC members.

  4. Review of course/curriculum proposals:

The next meeting will be Monday, April 9th, 2007. The meeting was adjourned at 4:58 p.m.
