Approved Minutes of September 27, 2006.WSU Student Transcripts via Banner
The chair reported that Todd Brittingham, Associate Registrar, contacted him and announced that with the implementation of Banner there is now the capability to record and display concentrations (sub definitions of majors including options and tracks) on student transcripts. Discussions took place and while he has received some requests from colleges/departments to display such on transcripts, presently there is no mechanism to determine the population of concentrations, etc. existing at WSU that Banner can see and integrate into the system. Therefore, a department/college must contact Todd Brittingham to inform him of the wish to include existing concentrations, etc. on the transcripts of all students completing the curriculum requirements of those concentrations, etc. Of course, only "existing approved" concentrations, etc. that have gone through the Faculty Senate and UCAPC processes are allowable. Todd may be contacted
