Revised BBA Curriculum and College Residency Requirements

Motion

Effective Summer 2002, BBA students may count Math 1070 toward the minimum university and college upper-division residency requirements in those instances where a student would be required to take additional hours to satisfy the upper-division residency requirement due to RCB's decision to replace DSc 3100 with Math 1070.

Subject: revised BBA curriculum and college residency requirements

The Robinson College of Business has revised the BBA curriculum effective fall 2001 to replace an upper-level required class (DSc 3100) with Math 1070. We anticipate that there may be issues related to residency due to this program change. (This is similar to the situation we had with semester conversion when our LglS 3000 was changed to BusA 2106 and moved from the junior business core to core area F.)

DSc 3100 is being phased out over the next two terms, but there may be some students who entered the program previously who will not be able to take DSc 3100 before it is phased out. They will take Math 1070 instead, and it will be used in the junior business core as a replacement for DSc 3100, or it will be used as an upper-level elective if a student has completed Area D requirements. If a student has enough hours to satisfy all the other upper-level course requirements, as is often the case with transfers, either of these substitutions could cause a student not to have the required number of upper-level hours for GSU (or BA) residency without having to take additional hours.

Thus, the Robinson College of Business is asking for approval to count Math 1070 toward the mininum university and college upper-division residency requirements in those instances where a student would be required to take additional hours to satisfy the upper-division residency requirement due to this program change. We would anticipate that need to allow this exception would impact only a small proportion of the college's juniors/seniors, and would diminish over time as students in the potential exception group graduate the program.
