University Council revises exam rescheduling policy, adds programs

University Council voted at its Feb. 17 meeting to revise the Final Exam Scheduling Conflict Policy so that students with three exams scheduled to start within a 24-hour period can have one exam rescheduled.

The council approved a new master’s degree program in higher education and an additional M.Ed. in reading education as an online-only degree.

A Ph.D. program in epidemiology was approved as was a graduate certificate in Latin American and Caribbean Studies.

The council voted to terminate an Ed.D. (doctor of education) in mathematics education and special education since a Ph.D. program has been established. It also terminated the non-thesis master of crop and soil science program. No students were in any of these three graduate programs. The council also terminated a graduate certificate in global policy studies because of a shortage of interested students and the creation of a master in international policy degree.

The council also voted to deactivate the master of fine arts degree in creative writing. The Ph.D. program will continue to be offered.
