Curriculum Action Notice


Academic Affairs Committee


September 21, 2006

This is a bulletin from the Academic Affairs Committee concerning proposed curricular actions. Please forward any comments or concerns in the next 10 days to the AAC chair, Teri Doerksen, G04C Belknap Hall, ext. 4588.


AAC has passed a policy limiting automatic course longevity for students who are readmitted after a more than ten year hiatus:

Course Time Limit
Mansfield University welcomes the return of students who for a variety of reasons have not completed their undergraduate degrees. Courses completed, either at Mansfield or in transfer, more than ten years prior to the date of readmission will not routinely be counted towards graduation requirements. The content of these courses may no longer be current or required for a current degree program. Students may apply, via a petition that includes specific justification for a waiver, to have course work older than ten years applied toward a degree. Any such petition may need to address courses individually. Nothing in this policy precludes a department from establishing more stringent standards.
