General Education Program

Ohio Transfer Module (OTM): Interdisciplinary Courses/Distributing Credit Hours
The committee briefly reviewed the Ohio Board of Regents (OBR) current proposal for the Ohio Transfer Module (OTM) so as to allow or require courses that are Interdisciplinary Studies courses to be distributed or apportioned by credit hours across different General Education Areas. The OBR has asked each institution to respond to the proposal. The committee thought it best to coordinate an administrative response to OBR with a Faculty Governance response through the Faculty Senate. Being a GE issue first and foremost, the committee charged the University General Education Committee (UGEC) with the task of reviewing the proposal, gathering feedback from each of the colleges, and coming forth with a report and recommendation that can be forwarded to the Faculty Senate.

The proposed OTM received by UCAPC is available for review as follows:

The current OTM may be reviewed at the OBR website as follows:

A side-by-side comparison of the current and proposed OTM is available as follows ( this document is still under development so please check back):

Academic Policy

Transfer to WSU of Student Grades Under "+" and "-" Grading Systems
With the forthcoming electronic transfer of grades integrated into the Banner System, it was brought to the attention of the committee that students transferring to WSU from institutions under "+" and "-" grading systems would be awarded the sending institution's "+" and "-" grade points. Because the WSU grading system does not award "+" and "-" grades, the committee believed that transfer students should be treated as equals with native WSU students. The committee proposed the following policy for consideration by the Faculty Senate:
