The following courses were recently established by Speech Pathology and Audiology, effective fall 2014. They were created as fixed-credit courses but should have been variable credit; therefore, proposals were submitted in August, 2014 to amend the courses beginning spring semester, 2015. Students who take these courses in the summer do not complete as many contact hours and therefore register for fewer credits. Because these courses had to be approved during the summer to meet the EPC deadline, the School Director (Lynne Rowan) and Associate Dean (Cathy Hackney) approved the amendments via the Course Catalog Update workflow.
