Students who had only taken GEOL 101, 103 or 201 were not adequately prepared to take this upper level geology course. Students need a stronger foundation in basic geology courses before they can fully grasp and understand the topics presented in this class.
Please list a minimum grade for the prerequisites so that they may be enforced via Banner during registration. A grade of 'D' or higher indicates that the student passed the course. Some academic units choose to list a higher minimum grade, as needed for the academic program.
Thank you for submitting your proposal to the Committee on Curricula & Courses. We are moving your proposal forward to the Faculty Senate. There is no need to attend the Curricula and Courses meeting, but it is recommended someone from the department attend the next Faculty Senate meeting in case there are questions from the floor regarding your proposal.
We appreciate your patience and commitment to undergraduate and graduate education.
John Gerdes, Chair
Faculty Senate Committee on Curricula and Courses
