Offering of Graduate Level Courses by Non-Graduate Degree Programs

Reference Number: F87-152
Senate Approval Date: Tuesday, December 08, 1987
Presidential Approval Date: 
Monday, December 14, 1987


At its meeting of December 8, 1987, the Academic Senate approved the following policy regarding the offering of graduate-level courses by non-graduate degree programs, to be added to the Administrative Handbook.

Non-graduate degree program areas of the University may, upon meeting appropriate conditions, (demonstration of the availability of qualified faculty, library resources, equipment or materials resources, and other materials necessary to meet the quality standards required for the offering of graduate level courses) be granted permission by the Dean of Graduate Studies to offer a maximum of two graduate-level courses. The courses proposed must be regular courses that will be placed in the Bulletin. They should be designed as "Core" program-type courses so that they can be readily useable, as appropriate, in the Special Major master’s degree program or as selected electives in other graduate degree programs within the University. Authority to grant exceptions to this policy shall be delegated to the Graduate Council.
