  6. New Business:  Credit issue with PEPROF173 - discussion was held on the difference between the 1 credit course and the current 3 credit course.  The committee opted to suggest that a student (very few are affected) should get credit for all 4 units because the change was not initiated by the student and may affect the 120 credit requirement.  Most have more than 120 credits, so not an issue for many.
  7. Old Business:  None
