            Return to division for modifications.


Dr. Glahn made suggestions to catalog description. Mr. Vega checked boxes regarding

percentages need corrected to 100% instead of 24%.

            Return to division for minor modifications.


Discussion continued regarding unit value of courses. Dr. Glahn again noted that unit value
affects block scheduling, load, and financial aid. A suggestion was made to look at how course
articulates, but this will be a problem for any course that does not transfer. Mr. Satko stated that
we are holding courses that unit values are in question and the committee does not have an
answer to unit value at this time. When unit value is determined Mr. Satko stated that instructor
opinion should have strong weight on course unit value. Courses should be forwarded and when
curriculum can address unit value courses can be returned for review.
              Motion:        To approve courses with existing unit values pending unit
                             value criteria.
