Undergrad programs gain increased flexibility

orientation; when a distribution
plan is chosen; at the declara-
tion of a concentration program;
for approval of an overload or
an underload; and- finally, in
the event that any of the above-
mentioned arrangements are
changed.
Discussing the merits of the
new system, Charles Judge, as-
sociate director of LSA aca-
demic counseling, said, "The
hope is not to give anyone the
impression that we want less
counseling to occur. We want
the emphasis to be on the qual-
ity of the discussion."
Judge also stressed the im-
portance of long-term planning
and discussion of individual
goals at counseling appoint-
ments. Counselors will be able
to devote more time to these
areas with the elimination of
what Judge called, "the gate-
keeping f unct ion" that the
counseling o f f i c e formerly
served.
"JUNIOR YEAR off campus"
has virtually become a coined
phrase because the old senior
residence rule by , which stu-

dents were required to earn 24
out of their last 30 credit-hours
while in residence forced stu-
dents to persue off-campus edu-
cational opportunities prior to
the senior year.
According to the new stand-
ards, "at least one-fourth the
credit hours required for the de-
gree must be earned in resi-
dence in the last two years of
study." There is no stipulation
as to a specific year required
in residence.
Students desiring BA., B.S. or
B.G.S. degrees must have, by
graduation, taken at least one-
half of the required credits on
the Ann Arbor campus or from
accredited off-campus sites.
WITH THE implementation of
the new residency rules, the
number of transferable credits
will drop from 75 to 60. This
could pose problems for the as
yet uninformed students pres-
ently considering a transfer to
the University.
"We ought to give a year for
the word to get out to all of
the various outside institutions"
before setting an implementa-

tion date, Mtorris suggested. The
Curriculum Committee 'will de-
cide on the issue next month.
However, despite the more
strict outside-transfer regula-
tion, students wishing to trans-
fer into LSA from other schools
within the University can bring
in up to 90 credits required for
a degree.
ANOTHER innovation in the
area of residency requirements
concerns the institution of a
five-man "Board of Study"
which will have the power to
grant a maximum of 15 credit-
hours to any one student who
presents a feasible plan for "an
analytic study of experience out-
side listed courses."
The Board composed of five
faculty members representing
different areas of learning will,
upon approving a petition, refer
the student to an ad hoc com-
mittee which will then deter-
mine the number of credits (not
more than eight for a single
project) to be given. The com-
mittee will also establish the
grading procedure.

Credits earned in this manner
can apply either to distribution
or concentration requirements.
THE BOARD of Study experi-
ment will be subject to faculty
review at the end of a three
year period.
While new off-campus pro-
grams are projected, resident
students have not been ne-
glected by the GRC. An "Intro-
duction to t h e University"
course and the establishment
of a number of interdisciplinary
"Collegiate Institutes" h a v e
been proposed by the GRC. ..
The. eight-credit e 1 e c ti v e
freshperson course, which is de-
signed to introduce students to
the University's resources and
programs, may not be ready
for institution until the Fall,
1976 according to Associate
Dean Morris.

SIMILARLY, the Collegiate
Institutes, intended for the "in-
terdisciplinary exploration of
important problems" with an
emphasis on innovative forms of
teaching and learning, will not
be immediately affective.
Both suggestions must go to
the Budget Priorities Commit-
tee and the Curriculum Com-
mittee before further planning
can be undertaken.
