CCPI reviewed and revised the existing policy regarding 275/475 courses at its regular meeting of September 4, 2003. The revised Experimental Studies Program Policy as approved by CAGAS on September 25, 2003 reads as follows:
1. Before any 275/475 courses can be offered, departments must submit a “Request for 275/475 Course” form to be reviewed by CCPI.
2. Any course previously rejected by CCPI, the Faculty Senate, or the President for inclusion in the regular curriculum may not be offered as a 275/475 course.
3. Departments may offer a total of two courses per term using the 275/475 numbers. A department may offer one of each or two of one. Of the two courses, each course (title) may be offered two terms, but does not have to be consecutive semesters. Any requests for exceptions must be appealed to CCPI.
4. Courses numbered 275/475 may not be offered as workshops or use the UNIV (University) prefix.
5. Courses numbered 275/475 may not have a general title (e.g. Special Topics, Special Problems or Current Topics).
6. A student is limited to 3 semester hours of 275 courses and 3 semester hours of 475 courses per department, although a Board of Trustees Bachelor of Arts Degree student may take up to 12 semester hours of 275/475 courses from one department for credit toward graduation. Any requests for exceptions must be appealed to CAGAS.
7. If a proposed 275/475 is found by CCPI to be inappropriately numbered as lower- or upper-division, the requesting department (s) shall be required to alter the course number prior to its offering.
8. Courses may not duplicate other approved courses in any department.
