Changes to Senate Policy 60-10: Concurrent Majors Program

(Legislative)

Implementation: Upon approval by the Senate (and development of procedures when applicable)

Introduction and Rationale

During the implementation of LionPATH, some processes including the election of major programs and concurrent major programs moved to direct electronic submission. The presence of this new capacity in the software allowed for the discontinuation of the approval to admission to each major to occur separately, thus effectively removing the first step in the existing policy language. As a result, the language for Senate Policy 60-10 needs to be updated to reflect current practice.

Recommendation

The committee recommends revised wording for Senate Policy 60-10 Concurrent Majors Program to reflect current practices that became necessary with the implementation of LionPATH.


Revised Policy

60-10 Concurrent Majors Program

Please note that the following contains bold text for additions and strikeouts indicating deleted text. Deleted text is notated with [Delete] [End Delete]. Added text is notated with [Add] [End Add].

Once an initial major is approved, the concurrent major will be requested in LionPATH and is sent to the Dean(s) of the College(s) of the current major and proposed concurrent major for approval. [End Add]
  2. Whenever possible and with approval from the departments and colleges involved, courses may be used to meet the requirements of more than one major.
  3.

  5. A Concurrent Majors Program may be listed and described in official University publications if entrance and graduation requirements have been identified and approved by the academic units involved.
