GRADUATE COUNCIL AY21

Charge

  1. Review all current Graduate Policies to reaffirm (for SACSCOC FYIR)

  2. Develop a policy on graduate curricular structures, perhaps parallel to existing policy on majors/minors, taking into consideration the following types of issues:

    • Minimum # hours for degree

    • How/whether it is possible to get a “double masters” degree—how many hours may double-count?

    • Can/should classes overlap between certificates? Is that affected by size of certificate or whether they are “stackable” toward a full degree?

    • Cross-referencing 4+1 language from undergraduate policy

    • Considerations of faculty support needed for graduate programs in terms of credentialing, etc.

    • How graduate programs are differentiated from undergraduate curriculum

  3. Work with Admissions and Registrar and Provost’s Office to define and document pathways for students in the following scenarios:

    • Those who seek to change to another graduate degree after being accepted into a different one (but haven’t started any classes yet)

    • Those who seek to change to another graduate degree after starting in another, unrelated program

    • Those who “soft start” in a certificate but then transition to the full degree


    As part of this discussion, please consider the following:

    • the application process and costs

    • how many hours can “transfer” among graduate credentials

    • how we ensure that students initiate and enter the request for a credential into the system for proper reporting and recording

  4. Work with Admissions and Registrar on ways to streamline transcript sharing with grad programs for students who are about to graduate or have graduated from UHD
