On Friday, September 6, 2013, at 5:00 p.m., SUNY Interim Provost Elizabeth Bringsjord issued her response to the Faculty Council's Resolution regarding A.A.S. and A.O. S. degrees and the SUNY Board's Resolution on Seamless Transfer Requirements.
Although A.A.S. and A.O.S. degrees are not transfer degrees, the Interim Provost has decided to ignore the recommendations of the SUNY Student Mobility Committee and the Faculty Council and apply the mandates of the Seamless Transfer Requirements Resolution to our 2-year career degrees. Specifically, our A.A.S. and A.O.S. degrees are supposed to be reviewed and revised to meet the 64-credit cap either by September 2014 or September 2015 depending on whether the revision is considered a major or minor revision--unless they have received a waiver. All waiver requests are due by January 1, 2014.
