COMMITTEE DISCUSSION:

  • There was discussion regarding the necessity of program or course changes in one program that could possibly have a direct impact on another department be discussed by ALL department SACs so that appropriate sections for courses involved can be projected and scheduled.
  • The committee discussed the need to encourage departments to be clear and definite about prerequisite and recommended courses in the text of course descriptions. It is much easier for advisors and counselors to assist students with classes when the prerequisites are clearly listed in a course description. The difference between a specific prerequisite and less specific recommendation of a course(s) could possibly affect the success of a student in that class.
