ITEM 122-113-R0104 Amend and Repeal Admissions Policies for the Montana University System.
EXPLANATION: This item combines all of the admissions requirements for in-state students into one policy. It also does the same thing for out-of-state students. The mathematics proficiency requirements for four- year programs are incorporated into both policies. General admissions guidelines, set out in Policy 301, are amended to extend some of those procedures to the Colleges of Technology and the Community Colleges. Policy 301.5, Transfer of Credits, is also modified slightly.
Most of the changes are accomplished without the creation of new policy language. Existing language, governing admission to the Montana University System, is simply rearranged and incorporated into the policies listed in the next paragraph. The only significant change is the one described in the preceding paragraph, concerning Policy 301.
To accomplish these changes,
· Policy 301 is amended;
· Policy 301.1 is amended, and the new mathematics proficiency standards are incorporated into the policy;
· Policy 301.2 is amended, and the new mathematics proficiency standards are incorporated into the policy;
· Policy 301.5 is amended;
· Policy 301.7 is repealed.
The specific changes are set out in the attachments to this item.
