Policy Statement

85-15

October 3, 1985

 

 

 

TEN YEAR RULE: UPPER-DIVISION COURSES IN THE BACCALAUREATE MAJOR

 

 

This policy was recommended by the Academic Senate in its meeting of September 19, 1985 and received the concurrence of the President on October 3, 1985.

 

To assure that a student's preparation in the major is coherent and current, all upper-division courses required for a major must be completed within the ten-year period preceding award of the baccalaureate degree. Courses completed prior to this ten-year period can be revalidated by such demonstrations of competence or knowledge of the subject as may be prescribed by the department offering the course.

REFERENCE: Title 5, Section 40401. Election of Regulations.

 

 


EFFECTIVE: Spring 1986
