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� Policy 301.7 is repealed.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.�
