Academic Senate considers change to degree requirements


Academic Senators gather to discuss policies and possible changes for the school year on Oct. 9 in Pearce 127.

Academic Senate considered a request to change a residency requirement for degree completion during their Oct. 10 meeting. 

Currently, it is a requirement that global campus undergraduate students must earn only 30 credits through Central Michigan University. Of the 30, 15 must be earned on campus and the remaining 15 may be taken online or on campus. At least 10 of the last 30 semester hours of credit prior to graduation must be earned through CMU.

The request called for eliminating the "10 of the last 30" and "15 on campus" requirements.

Sociology faculty member Mary Senter proposed the request be sent to the Admissions, Standards and Honors committee. The Senate voted and approved the motion to send the request to the ASH Committee.

Academic Senate meets at 3:30 p.m. every other Tuesday in Pearce 127.

Additionally, CMED faculty member MJ Conway was nominated for the Senate's Budget Priorities Committee.
