  • The chair introduced Jason Winchester as a student member on the Council.


  • M/S/P to approve the minutes of September 12, 2003


  • Student appeals:


M/S/P to accept 12 transfer credits for Student X based on discretion of program director.  (Master of Software Engineering)


M/S/P to approve a three-year time extension to the summer 2005, for Student Y to complete degree (ESS-Sport Administration Program). This is the student’s first time extension request.


M/S/P to approve a change of grade from F to I in ESS 749-Summer 1999 for Student Z. (ESS Sport Administration Program)


The appeal request also included permission to be admitted to the ESS-Sport Administration program and for a two-year time extension; however, it was not necessary for the Council to approve these requests. Program admission can be granted by the program director. A one-year time extension to December 2004 may be granted by the Director of University Graduate Studies. Subsequent time extensions would need Council approval.


  • The chair informed the Graduate Council that Bill Schwan will serve as the Graduate Curriculum Committee representative on the Council.
