Academic Matters

 

The Committee discussed the letter forwarded by the Provost’s Office from the Board of Regents regarding acceptance of transfer credit from Georgia Gwinnett College.  The question will be referred to the Student Rules and Regulations Committee when it resumes its meeting schedule in the fall.  The Chairs of the two Committees will confer on any next steps after both groups have had an opportunity to discuss the matter.  Any revision to the Transfer Credit policy would have to be approved by the Student Rules and Regulations Committee, with input from the IUCC, and presented to the Academic Senate as an action item.
