Women and Gender Studies Minimum Grade Policy

The College at Brockport, College Senate

Accepted by President Halstead 3/4/08 - Effective Fall 2008


Women and Gender Studies would like to institute a minimum grade policy by establishing a minimum grade of “C” for the core courses required of the major and minor. The following courses fall under the core requirements: Major: WMS 101, WMS 271, WMS 301, WMS 360, WMS 411, WMS 401 (to become WMS 420, WMS 421) Minor: WMS 101, WMS 301, WMS 360 Rationale: Currently, there are no minimum Women and Gender Studies grading standards. This proposal corrects this oversight, and in turn, establishes a minimum level of competency required for Women and Gender Studies majors and minors.
