This resolution was approved as S07 6.03, and language implementing the change has been included in the proposed Title 5 regulation changes going before the Board of Governors in July 2007.

Whereas, Title 5 55805.5 provides for AA/AS degree applicability for any course accepted for transfer to California State University and University of California;

Whereas, System Office Legal Opinion O02-16 has interpreted other parts of Section 55805.5 as barring this applicability in some cases; and

Whereas, This interpretation unnecessarily complicates evaluation of a student's progress towards a degree;

Resolved, That the Academic Senate for California Community Colleges recommend a change in language to Title 5 55805.5 so that subsection (a) supersedes its other subsections. MSR Disposition: Executive Committee to research and report by Fall 2006 Plenary Session.
