101. Part-Time Degree Students
Part-Time Degree undergraduate/graduate students admitted to the Santa Barbara campus are regular upper-division/graduate students enrolled in approved Part-Time Degree Programs who are authorized under policies and criteria established by the Santa Barbara Division to register as part-time students. Applicants for Part-Time Degree status must be qualified for admission and registration under Senate and Santa Barbara Division requirements and standards.
Undergraduate and graduate students in Part-Time Degree status may enroll only in those established major or degree programs approved for such enrollment by the Council on Part-Time Degree, the Executive Committee of the Faculty concerned [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II or the Graduate Council and the Faculty Legislature]. (Am 23 May 74)
Certain major or degree programs approved specifically for undergraduate or graduate students in Part-Time Degree status are open only to students in that status. The requirements of such major or degree programs must be approved by the Council on Part-Time Degree Programs, the Executive Committee of the Faculty concerned [see Divisional Legislative Ruling 1.93.A, Appendix II] or the Graduate Council, and the Faculty Legislature. (Am 23 May 74)
Residence in any regular term is validated for a Part-Time Degree student by a program of one or more upper-division or graduate courses.
A Part-Time Degree student may complete an unlimited number of the units required for his or her degree in Summer Session courses.
Regardless of the total number of units already completed toward the degree, a Part-Time Degree student may continue to receive unit credit toward the degree for courses completed at a junior college until the point at which 105 total units toward the degree have been earned in junior colleges. Beyond that point, only subject credit will be awarded for courses so completed. (Am 23 May 74).
