Charge To Baccalaureate Majors' Panels
Each baccalaureate major panel is charged to develop a recommendation for prospective
students who have decided upon their major but who have not yet decided upon the
institution to which they may transfer (or to which they might be admitted). Each
panel needs to identify those courses that incoming transfer students should have
completed in order to be admitted as a junior into the baccalaureate major. The
panel should identify and describe:
- Any additional general education courses beyond those in the General Education Core
Curriculum that students need to complete to meet degree or college requirements
(e.g., should students have completed a foreign language?)
- Any courses in the major or related disciplines that "native" students commonly
take as freshmen and sophomores.
- Any other information the prospective student should know about transfer into the
major (e.g., what subfields or disciplines does the major include? Is there a minimum
GPA requirement for admission? Are there entry exams? Is there a performance criterion
required-audition, portfolio, etc.?)
Including the transferable General Education Core Curriculum, the panel's recommendation
should comprise about 60 semester credit hours (up to a maximum of 64 semester credits).
Community and junior college students are encouraged to complete an Associate in
Arts or Associate in Science degree before transferring.
