An increase in the total number of credits allocated to a co-curricular organization requires Curriculum Committee approval. An internal reallocation of credits requires the involvement and approval of the organization’s faculty advisor. The approval of the faculty advisor is also required for any proposed reallocation of credits that involves an increase in the total number of staff members.
