Students who completed General Education requirements under a previous catalog may complete the bachelor of arts using those requirements. Major requirements are under the jurisdiction of the faculty. Faculty may allow major requirements completed under an expired catalog to count towards the major.
All other degree requirements—total credits, residency, GPA calculation, etc.—will follow semester standards and current policies.
- Students in elementary education and secondary education must complete licensure requirements and apply for licensure within seven years from the time of admission to the licensure program. After seven years, all education courses previously taken become void and must be retaken for licensure per requirement of the Minnesota State Board of Teaching.
- Returning students with degree applications on file with Academic Progress Audit System (APAS) reports from their previous time at Morris, and correspondence that defines requirements to be completed will be honored and reasonable effort will be made to allow those students to graduate based on the agreement.
Precedents and business practice
- On file, approved Scholastic Committee petitions may be used as a guideline for granting similar requests that allow students to complete degree requirements using expired General Education.
Reason for Policy
The policy states expectations and assurances for students whose Morris academic career is interrupted before completing the degree under the catalog in effect their first term and year at Morris. Exceptions can be made with approved Scholastic Committee petitions.
There are no procedures associated with this policy.
