- Discussion Items
- Second BS/BA Degree Acquired after Graduation? McDougall posed the question to the Council as to what are the requirements to obtain a second major under the same degree after graduation by a returning student; in particular, he asked who sets the requirements – the individual colleges or the university, what is officially placed on their transcripts, and what catalog do they fall under? It was decided that this matter would be placed on the October agenda as a discussion item, and Sandy Hinkle, Registrar, would research this and address questions at that time.
