Senate Agenda -EXHIBIT IV - March 19, 1999
1. Four-Year General BSc Program in Computer Science with Software
Recommended: That, retroactive to September 1, 1998, the Four-Year General BSc Program in Computer Science with Software Engineering Specialization be introduced in the Faculty of Science.
NEW CALENDAR COPY
(to be placed after the Four-Year General BSc Computer Science)
Four-Year General BSc Computer Science with Software Engineering Specialization
Students enter this program in fourth year. Admission requirements are identical to those for entry into year four of the Four-Year General BSc Computer Science program.
Computer Science 470y
Seven additional half-courses in Computer Science at the 300- or 400-level; these must include at least three half-courses from Computer Science 377a/b, 471a/b, 472a/b, 473a/b, 474a/b; Computer Science 342a/b must be included if not already taken.
One full-course option, chosen in accordance with item I) in the Graduation Requirements listed with the Four-Year General BSc program in Computer Science.
The requirements for graduation from this program are the same as those for the Four-Year General BSc Program in Computer Science, with the exception of item e): this program requires the achievement of an overall average of at least 60% in Mathematics 222a, 223b, and the ten required senior Computer Science courses.
One of the goals in establishing a four-year general program was to provide general students with sufficient Computer Science background so that they could compete for jobs which formerly had gone only to students with honors degrees. That program emphasizes areas of Computer Science that are in highest demand in industry: databases, networks, operating systems, software engineering.
The Honors BSc Program in Computer Science with Software Engineering Specialization, introduced last year, has proven to be very popular; about half of the fourth-year honors class has chosen it over the regular honors stream. It is expected that a similar program at the general level will be equally attractive.
The software engineering content of the new program is identical to that of the corresponding honors program. The main differences lie in the theory content required for honors, and in progression and graduation standards.
In designing this program, the Department has followed the curriculum guidelines for software engineering programs as established by a joint committee of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), whose Computer Science curriculum guidelines are followed by universities throughout North America, and the Computer Society of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). As a result, this program requires two more half-courses than the Four-Year General BSc Program in Computer Science, and Computer Science 342a/b must be taken in third or fourth year.
It is proposed that the start date be established as September 1998. If this is done, a number of students currently in fourth year should be eligible to graduate from this program in Spring 1999.
Students who have taken the former Computer Science 201 will be allowed to use it and a half-course option in place of the new courses Computer Science 210a/b, 211a/b and 212a/b/y in the second year.
Recommended: That effective September 1, 1999, the Faculty of Social Science introduce a Commercial Aviation Management Stream to the Four-Year General Bachelor of Administrative and Commercial Studies program.
NEW CALENDAR COPY
Proposed copy for Western's Academic Calendar 1999 - Administrative and Commercial Studies on the Registrar's website.
Area of Concentration: Commercial Aviation Management
Economics 020; Calculus 050a/b and 051a/b or 081a/b; Business 020 or one full-course or equivalent numbered 020E-099E from the Faculty of Social Science or the Faculty of Arts; Administrative and Commercial Studies 020a/b; Computer Science 031a/b (or another half-course in Computer Science numbered 020-099); Geography 020E or one of: Physics 020, 021, 024.

Administrative and Commercial Studies 372 or 360a/b and 361a/b; Administrative and Commercial Studies 310a/b and 320a/b; One full-course or equivalent from: Actuarial Science 153, Economics 154a/b, 156a/b, 180a/b, 184a/b, History 143F/G, 144F/G, 146F/G, Philosophy 162F/G, Political Science 211E, 246E; Administrative and Commercial Studies 305a/b and 306a/b; One full-course or equivalent option.
Administrative and Commercial Studies 330a and 410b; One full-course or equivalent from: Administrative and Commercial Studies 275a/b, 372 (must be completed if not taken in Third Year), 460a/b, 461a/b, Economics 162a/b, 163a/b, 164a/b, Geography 372a/b, Sociology 309F/G; One senior essay full-course or equivalent; Administrative and Commercial Studies 405F/G and 406F/G; One full-course or equivalent option.
Note: this program must include one full-course or equivalent option from the Faculty of Arts.
This stream, which was initiated by UWO and has been under serious consideration by the Administrative and Commercial Studies Steering Committee, Faculty of Social Science, since the summer of 1998, has been significantly strengthened through the cooperation of partners from within the local community (Empire Aviation, Air Ontario, and Diamond Aircraft) and the provincial government (Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Tourism). The rationale of the proposed stream is to provide students with training in management, placing particular emphasis on the aviation industry in Canada. Academically, the Commercial Aviation Management stream closely parallels and builds upon the strengths of the existing Finance and Administration stream. As suggested during earlier discussions arising from the introduction of the new four-year program, the stream is the first step in developing viable stand-alone high demand areas of specialization within the program. To that end, the proposed stream also points the way to new opportunities within the faculty for developing research expertise in the field of commercial aviation management.
While the main focus in the stream is on Commercial Aviation Management, students would also have the opportunity to pursue a commercial aviation license through one of the partners (Empire Aviation), thereby making this program unique in Canada -- the only one of its kind operated from a major university. By contrast, similar highly esteemed and successful aviation-related programs already are in place at many major American universities.
Academically, the program promises to be extremely rigorous. Those students opting to earn a commercial pilot's designation will not only complete the four-year BACS degree -- a challenging multi disciplinary program of study in it own right - but over the final three years of the program will also be required to complete seven intensive certificate courses covering the technical aspects of flight, in addition to completing approximately 375 hours of flight training and briefing. Given the relatively low anticipated intake of students -- approximately 20-40 each year, for a total program enrollment of 80-160 over the four years - Western can be certain of attracting to the Commercial Aviation Management program students of the highest calibre.
Preliminary data from a business plan being prepared by KPMG (primary funding by the Ontario Government) reveal that there will be high student demand for the program as proposed. Moreover, the program will help to fill a critical employment gap within the aviation industry.
With regard to consultation, development of this proposed stream in Commercial Aviation Management has involved extensive consultation since May 1998 between members of the Administrative and Commercial Studies Steering Committee and the private sector partners, represented by Mr. Tom Lawson (President, Empire Aviation), Captain Brian Morris (Vice-President, Flight Operations, Air Ontario) and Mr. John Winston (President, Diamond Aircraft Industries). Ms. Anne Croteau, (Client Account Manager, Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Tourism) has served as a resource person. Extensive discussions regarding program and course development have also been ongoing with representatives from universities and colleges in Canada and the United States currently offering aviation-related programs, particularly Concordia University, the University of North Dakota, Western Michigan University, and Seneca College. Members of UWO senior administration have participated at various stages of the consultation process. The Deans of all faculties and of the Affiliated Colleges have reviewed the proposal and no negative comments were received. All department chairs in the Faculty of Social Science were informed of the proposed stream in Commercial Aviation Management in August/September 1998, and have since been updated regularly on the program's development.
As part of the proposal to introduce the new Commercial Aviation Management Stream of the Four-Year General BACS Program in September 1999, the following new courses have been approved as part of the new half-courses proposed for the new stream: 1) Administrative and Commercial Studies 305a/b (Human Factors in Aviation); 2) Administrative and Commercial Studies 306a/b (Aviation Law); 3) Administrative and Commercial Studies 405F/G (Airport Planning and Management); and 4) Administrative and Commercial Studies 406F/G (Airline Operation and Management). Course descriptions are available in the University Secretariat and, contingent on approval of the proposal outlined above, DAP will be notified of their approval.
Recommended: That Senate approve that the Policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities be amended as outlined in Appendix 1 and reflected in the Faculty Handbook on the Implementation of the Policy on Academic Accommodation for Students with Disabilities (Appendix 2).
The Policy and the Handbook have been revised substantially in light of the comments solicited and received by the Vice-President (Administration). The changes are designed to achieve the following:
Recommended: That admission to the Certificate Program in Promoting Early School Learning and the Program in Women's Issues and Social Change be discontinued and that both certificate offerings be withdrawn, effective September 1, 2003.Background:
At its March 20, 1998, meeting, Senate approved New Operating Principles for Continuing Studies at Western (S.98-086) at the same time as the Faculty of Communications & Open Learning was disbanded and the Faculty of Information & Media Studies was created (S.98-085). The responsibility for Continuing Studies was removed from the Faculty of COL and "academic responsibility for the development, offering, and ongoing monitoring of all diploma and certificate programs currently managed by the Faculty of Communications & Open Learning [was to] be transferred at the earliest opportunity to the relevant faculty or faculties" for review by the Faculty EPCs. It was also approved "that non-credit courses should be coordinated through and offered by Continuing Studies... [and] where no Faculty wishes to assume responsibility for a program, it will be discontinued."
There are 18 students who could still elect to finish the Program in Women's Issues and Social Change and only 4 students eligible to complete the Program in Promoting Early School Learning. Each will be contacted by Continuing Studies in order to determine whether he or she intends to complete the program. The Program in Women's Issues and Social Change will continue to be offered with the Faculty of Arts as the academic partner assuming responsibility for it. Students in the Program in Promoting Early School Learning will graduate under the umbrella of the Faculty of Education.
Western currently offers the following Certificate and Diploma Programs in conjunction with Continuing Studies. Listed with the name is the academic unit responsible for working with Continuing Studies as an academic partner in offering the certificate program.
5. Revisions to Certificate and Diploma Policies: Definitions, Procedures and
Criteria for the Establishment of Programs, Convocation Guidelines, Process
for Approval by Senate and its Committees, and Admission Deadlines
The following revisions to policies will clarify the roles of Continuing Studies and its academic partners and the process to be used in future for new, revised and discontinued certificate and diploma offerings.
Recommended: That the policies on certificates and diplomas be revised to read as shown below as a result of the reorganization of Continuing Studies.
Certificates and Diplomas
General Definitions of Certificates and Diplomas (S.4082.01)
A Certificate should be awarded when the following criteria are met:
A Diploma should be awarded when the following criteria are met:
[Note: Senate has approved exceptions to the naming policy such as the Certificate Programs for Primary Health Care Nurse Practitioners (S.95-273) and Tertiary Care (S.98-165), offered by the Faculty of Health Sciences, in recognition of the desire for a standard program name for Nursing graduates from this program across the province, and the Diploma in Education (Technological Studies) offered by the Faculty of Education which is not a post-degree program.]
Procedures and Criteria for the Establishment of Certificate Programs (S.3896)
1. A Certificate offered through the is a non-degree credential. It will be awarded to candidates who have successfully completed an approved program with a coordinated curriculum which usually will have a professional or an applied focus. A program will require completion of a set of credit courses from the undergraduate offerings of the University specially designed courses, practica and/or workshops. The workload effort required in each certificate program will be equivalent to that of at least one academic year of full-time undergraduate study.
2. To be eligible to enter a certificate program, a candidate must be The University of Western Ontario and must have completed the prerequisites for credit courses in the program. Any additional requirements for entry into a specific certificate program will be defined in the proposal for the program. Students may be granted advanced standing in a certificate program for university courses already completed.
3. Generally, certificate programs will be designed so that they may be pursued concurrently with a Bachelor's degree.
4. To maintain registration in the program and to be eligible to obtain a certificate, a student must be in good standing in the University. Additional requirements to maintain registration in a program will be defined as part of each certificate program proposal. To be granted a certificate, a student must obtain pass standing in all courses in the program and, in the credit courses in the program, obtain a mark of at least 60% in each course and an overall average of 70%. components must be completed in no more than five years following admission into the certificate program.
5. Students will retain their academic standing for the credit courses completed in a certificate program in accordance with the rules

Recipients of Certificates and Diplomas will be listed in the Convocation Program, and will be permitted to participate in the graduation ceremonies.
All Diplomas and Certificates will be signed by the Registrar and the Dean of Faculty and the names of graduands from Diploma and Certificate programs will be listed under the heading for that Faculty in the Convocation Program.
Candidates who meet the requirements for graduation in Diploma and Certificate programs will be issued a Notification of Eligibility to Graduate (rather than an application to graduate, required of potential degree recipients).
Certificates and Diplomas - Process for Approvals (S.96-159)
1) Major changes, i.e., a Diploma or Certificate name change; an exception to the usual definitions of a diploma or a certificate; or the introduction diploma or certificate program must be recommended to SCAPA to Senate for approval
2) Structural changes or changes of calendar copy within a diploma or certificate program
Admission Deadlines for Diploma and Certificate Programs (S.89-175)
The admission deadlines for diploma and certificate programs offered by the Western Centre for Continuing Studies will be January 15 for Certificate programs and March 15 for Diploma programs.
Recommended: That the Policy on Examination Conflicts be revised to include a statement [see Note below] for the purpose of interpreting the policy which indicates that public examinations not offered by this University such as Graduate Record Examination Subject Tests are to be considered equivalent to Western's if the times conflict.
EXAMINATION CONFLICTS (S.3242, S.3648, S.89-191)
A student who is scheduled to write more than two examinations in any 24-hour period may request alternative arrangements through the office of the dean of their faculty.*
A student who is scheduled to write two examinations concurrently must notify the Registrar so that arrangements may be made for both examinations to be written in the Examination Conflict Room in a sequence established by the Registrar.
A student scheduled to write an examination that conflicts with a holy day of that student's religion which prohibits such activity should seek accommodation under the terms of the policy on religious holidays.
Examinations written in the Conflict Room will be the regular examinations.
The Registrar will notify the appropriate department chair of the required information regarding students writing in the Conflict Room (i.e., student name, course, section, date and time of the conflict).
It is the responsibility of the Department Chair to ensure that the Registrar receives the appropriate examination paper and supplies seven days before the examination date.
Examinations written in the Conflict Room are to be picked up by the Department Chair or designate during the first working day following the examination date.
Students writing examinations in the Conflict Room will have a supervised break between examinations. Students are required to follow the instructions of the Conflict Room proctors at all times.
For students who wish to do graduate studies in the USA, it is obligatory to submit Graduate Record Examination results to the American graduate schools before February 1. The computer-adaptive General Test is offered at many locations around the world in October and January as well as the first three weeks of February and June. In fact, April 1999 will be the last time the General Test will be available in the paper-based format. After April 1999, the test will be offered only on computer in the U.S. and in most locations around the world. However, Subject Tests will continue to be offered in the paper-based format and these times may conflict with UWO final examination schedules.
In order to ensure that Deans' Offices are sensitive to the possible conflict, a footnote to the policy is proposed.
Recommended: That the sessional dates outlined in Appendix 3 for the Faculty of Education and for the School of Dentistry be approved.
The following points should be noted with regard to the sessional dates being submitted for approval:
1) Application deadlines are standard from year to year.
2) Add/Drop dates are assigned according to policies established by Senate.
3) Convocation dates are stated as T.B.A. as they have yet to be established by Senate.
4) Program Planning has been moved to the two weeks previous to conference week.
Recommended: That the regulations governing the Scholar's Electives Program be revised to indicate that students who fail any course(s) will not be permitted to continue in the program.
REVISED CALENDAR COPY
SCHOLAR'S ELECTIVES PROGRAM (S.1197, S.1201, S.1726, S.2669, S.97-156)
The Scholar's Electives Program allows students who have demonstrated outstanding academic potential to elect their own program of studies in consultation with the departments concerned and with the approval of the Deans' office(s) involved. The Dean(s) will also appoint a faculty advisor for each senior student in the program. Students enrolled in the Scholar's Electives Program are able to pursue one of the Theme Areas discussed below or a combination of two subjects for which a formal joint program is not generally available, or an interdisciplinary combination of courses from different subjects which constitutes an appropriate liberal education. The Educational Development Office facilitates the initial registration of students in the Scholar's Electives Programs, especially for students entering it in their First Year. However, admission to the program is granted by the Dean of the Faculty designated by the applicant, who is responsible for the academic counselling for the student.
Admission to the Program
The Western Scholar's Electives Program is open to all students who apply for full-time admission to the first year in the Faculties of Arts, Engineering Science, Health Sciences, Science or Social Science and who have achieved at least a 90% average in their incoming high school marks. Students whose incoming average lies between 85% and 89% may request special permission to enter the program.
Students entering their second, third, or fourth year may also apply to enter the Program, provided that they have been registered for five courses in each September-April session that meet the criteria for the program (e.g., no more than five 020-level courses for a three-year degree, and no more than five 020 + 100 level courses for the honors degree) and have maintained at least an 80% average in each year of university study. Exceptions to these requirements will only be approved by the Dean(s) of the Faculty in extraordinary circumstances.
Each Affiliated College may offer a Scholar's Electives Program leading to a BA degree under the same conditions. Admission to the program shall be granted by the Dean or by the Principal of an Affiliated College and, where appropriate, in consultation with the Dean(s) of the constituent university Faculties involved in the proposed course of study. See the Calendar of the appropriate Affiliated College for Theme Areas available at that institution.
Progression in the Program
The achievement of an average of at least 80% in a full course load (minimum of five courses per session of September - April) is necessary for progression to the next year of the Program. The privileges of the Program shall be withdrawn upon transfer to another undergraduate program or failure to meet the progression requirements . Exceptions to the full course load requirement will only be approved by the Dean(s) of the Faculty in extraordinary circumstances.
First Year of the Program
Scholar's Electives students in their First Year at Western can, with permission of their Dean, enrol in certain 100- and 200-level courses normally restricted to senior students, and/or enrol in more than one course in a given subject, and/or restrict their choice of courses to a single Faculty. Normally the choice of the Theme area or disciplinary combination is made during the First Year, although students will be counselled during registration for First Year of the likely prerequisites for their program(s) of choice.
The baccalaureate diploma awarded to students will record both the status of Scholar's Electives, and if appropriate the Theme Area or discipline(s) studied, as recommended by the Dean.
Honors Scholar's Electives Programs - Degree Requirements
Both BA and BSc Honors Programs are available, and require fifteen of the twenty courses counted for graduation to be honors courses, i.e., numbered 200-499. Combined Honors degrees between Scholar's Electives and those subjects in Arts and Social Sciences listed in the Combined Honors section of the Calendar are also available, subject to consultation with the appropriate department and Deans' offices. Students must enrol in a full course load and maintain an average of 80% in each year of study. Exceptions to the full honors course load requirement normally will be approved only in extraordinary circumstances.
3-Year Degree Scholar's Electives Programs
Both BA and BSc 3-year degree programs that involve one or more disciplinary-based areas are available, as are 3-year BA and BSc programs without a designated area. Of the fifteen courses counted for graduation, no more than five can be numbered 001-099. Students must enrol in , and maintain an average of 80% in ach year of study.
Combinations of Two or More Subjects
The many programs that combine the study of two disciplines that have been established at Western are listed elsewhere in the Calendar. Students who wish to pursue the simultaneous study of two or more subjects for which no formal combined program has been established may be able to do so through the Scholar's Electives Program, after consultation with the appropriate departments and the approval of the Dean(s) concerned. In certain cases, it is possible to combine subjects from several different faculties, including those other than Arts, Science, and Social Science. The Educational Development Office will facilitate the initial counselling between the student and the Faculties concerned.
The Scholar's Electives Program allows students who have demonstrated outstanding academic potential to elect their own program of studies in consultation with the departments concerned and with the approval of the Deans' office(s) involved. Progression is based on the achievement of an average of at least 80% in a full course load (minimum of five courses per session of September - April).
A recent appeal to the Senate Review Board Academic was based on the fact that the regulation does not specify that progression in the Scholar's Elective Program would be affected if a student was to fail a course. This is stipulated in progression requirements for honors programs which is based on the achievement of a 70% average overall and in principal courses and no failures. The revisions proposed would parallel the honors program requirement by clearly stating that the students must withdraw from the program if they fail a course.
9. Policy Revisions: Deferred Registration, Admission Scholarships, Deferral
of Admission Scholarships, and Academic Counselling
Recommended: That the following policies be modified as indicated below to apply to all faculties.
ADMISSION SCHOLARSHIPS - OFFER AND ADJUDICATION PROCESS FOR ONE-YEAR ADMISSIONS SCHOLARSHIPS [S.95-248]
For all students offered one-year admission scholarships, including OAC, Out-of-Province, US Grade 12 and International Baccalaureate (IB) and General Certificate of Education (GCE) applicants, the following offer and adjudication process will apply:
ADMISSION SCHOLARSHIPS - DEFERMENT FOR ONE YEAR [S.2510.3, S.97-118]
A student whose request to defer admission to the University has been granted for one year will also have his/her admission scholarship deferred for one year.
DEFERRED REGISTRATION (S.2506.3)
Students offered admission to The University of Western Ontario into first year programs may request permission to defer their registration for up to one year. Requests for deferral of registration should be received by the Registrar prior to commencement of the session for which our offer of admission was given.
ACADEMIC COUNSELLING (S.663, S.713.04-06, Senate Agendas Feb. 23/73, Feb.13/75, S.1336)
The Dean of each shall appoint a body of academic counsellors, responsible directly to the respective Dean, to help students in their choice of, and progression within, their programs of study.
Departments of the Faculties shall designate members to assist the coordination of academic counselling in each faculty.
The recommendations for academic counselling should not be construed as to prohibit use of students in academic counselling.
No additional remuneration shall be paid to faculty members participating in academic counselling services, except those participating in the summer counselling program.
Each department shall provide course outlines and reading lists for the Academic Counsellors for all courses offered by the department for the general three and four-year general programs.
Counselling is compulsory for all undergraduate and special students who intend to register in courses at The University of Western Ontario. (This does not apply to students in the Faculties of Medicine Dentistry, Law and Education.)
10. Admission from the Province of Quebec (CEGEP)
Recommended: That the policy on admission from a CEGEP program be revised to delete reference to the programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy (item 3) since it is no longer applicable.
PROVINCE OF QUEBEC (CEGEP's) (S.762, S.1437.1, S.2667, S.3569, S.94-209)
The requirements for admission with advanced standing shall be based on completion of the two-year CEGEP general program subsequent to the Province of Quebec Grade 11 completion, and subject to standing satisfactory to the Senate Subcommittee on Admissions, and approval of the department(s) concerned, and subject to the following conditions:
1. No consideration will be given to graduates of CEGEP's by the Faculties of Law, Medicine, and Dentistry, until such time as the work completed at the CEGEP together with that completed at The University of Western Ontario (or at another university elsewhere) is considered equivalent to completion of second year of an appropriate University of Western Ontario program.
2. Applicants to Year Three of the Program in Business Administration must also present a level of achievement equivalent to that demanded in #1.
[Delete] 3. Applicants to the programs in Physical Therapy and Occupational Therapy must present proof of admissibility from the full program (General) at a CEGEP to The University of Western Ontario with no deficiencies, to the second year of either the BA or BSc programs.
Students graduating from the Three-year Program (Professional) leading to qualification as a technician or technologist at the CEGEP shall be considered for admission as we now consider graduates in these fields from Colleges of Applied Arts and Technology (CAAT) in Ontario.
Admission requirements for the Province of Quebec are: Grade 12 or its equivalent, i.e., completion of first year CEGEP (General Program), with appropriate standing.
Note: Applicants who present Diplome d'etude Collegiale with at least second class standing may be eligible for advanced standing in certain subjects.
Effective September 1, 1994:
1. CEGEP applicants who have completed a minimum of twelve semester credits in the pre-university program with an average of 70% or better are eligible for admission consideration to Year I.
2. CEGEP applicants who are registered in or have completed Year II in the pre-university program may be eligible for advanced standing consideration up to a maximum of five full (or equivalent) courses or first year of a professional program in accordance with established procedures.

2. Restricted Registration (Policy to be Rescinded)
The policy on Restricted Registration (formerly Conditional Admission) has been rescinded since the process has been streamlined and the policy is no longer necessary.
RESTRICTED REGISTRATION (formerly Conditional Admission) (S.90-57)
Restricted Registration may be granted to applicants (excluding current OSSD students) who are Canadian Citizens or Permanent Residents. Such applicants must complete and submit an "Assessment of Eligibility" form to be considered for Restricted Registration status. Dependent on the above noted assessment of eligibility, such applicants will either:
1. be granted Restricted Registration status in one of the Faculties of Arts, Science, Social Science or Kinesiology and be permitted to enrol in a maximum of three courses in one session as approved by the appropriate Dean. Mature candidates will be permitted to register in up to three first-year courses from the 001-099 series in a single session as approved by the appropriate Dean.
2. be required to submit further documentation to the Admissions Office for further consideration and evaluation for admission/advanced standing. No further registration will be allowed until the relevant documentation is received and adjudicated.
Applicants granted Restricted Registration will receive grade reports and transcripts displaying the number/letter grade earned. Further registration will be contingent on the student meeting all Senate-approved progression requirements. Requests for advanced standing will only be considered during the session of Restricted Registration. Prior to the session immediately following registration under Restricted Registration status, the Admissions Office will undertake a review of all such students to remove initial registration restrictions or impose further admission requirements as appropriate.
