Old Business:

  1. Bachelor of Science, Industrial Technology:
    1. The electives have been clarified as upper level.
    2. An actual list including all possible electives would be unwieldy and impossible to keep updated.
    3. The problem can be eliminated by removing “or other 3000 or 4000 level courses approved by BSIT advisor”.
    4. There is a typo in HIST 1301 that should be fixed.
    5. The department should double check with the College of Business that they are not including too many business classes. There is a recollection that the COB’s policy is 30 hours or less for non-majors.
    6. Judy Smith made a motion to approve the degree plan pending COB clearance. Tom Sowers seconded the motion and it carried. Judy Mann voted against via proxy.

    1. The title on the syllabus needs to match the title on the form.
    2. Clarify the penalty in the attendance policy.
