Whereas Resolution 9.05 S 96 called for the Academic Senate to work with the Chancellor's Office in facilitating the approval of program prerequisites;

Resolved that the Academic Senate recommend to the Board of Governors the following addition (underlined) to Title 5 Section 55201.
(c.) Prerequisites or co-requisites may be established only for any of the following purposes: (#5 added to #1-4 already in Title 5)
(5) for approved degree and certificate programs, the prerequisite is established as a standard prerequisite to the program by applying the standards and procedures of this Article at a minimum of five (5) community colleges and so may be used without further scrutiny as a prerequisite to such programs at other community colleges upon written notification to the Chancellor's Office.
