3. Proposed Policy Change Regarding Dual Level Classes: At the January 27, 2017 UCPC meeting, Patricia Koski moved and Nicole Rowan seconded to impose a University rule that disallows dual credit 4000-level classes.  The motion recommended that 4000/5000 level pairs be used instead. 

Benefits:  makes it easier to comply with ADHE rules about credits for graduate degrees; improves degree audits; removes requirement for graduate faculty status and attendant issue of TA’s access to Blackboard; reduces registration issues and issues related to retroactive graduate credit.  The motion was approved and forwarded to the Faculty Senate Executive Committee for consideration.
