Student definitions for academic programs approved

The following definitions were recommended by the Academic Programs Work Team and approved by the Consolidation Action Team.

    1. New students complete the new core. During the transition year, it is recommended the ASU core requirements be utilized until a joint faculty senate is established and formal discussions occur regarding proposed revisions.
    2. Transfer students within the USG follow the current USG policies concerning core transfer.  This includes completing the minimum number of hours in each Area within the core from the list of courses and the program specific requirements.
    3. Transfer students external to the USG, follow the current USG policies concerning the core curriculum and core transfer.
