  1. Approval of Minutes
    Karen Guthmiller made motion to approve the October 18, 2016, CAAC Minutes; seconded by Stewart Edwards.
    Motion passed unanimously.

    1. Scott Bennett
    2. David Jaroszewski
    Get used to hearing the words “Guided Pathways” and “Meta Majors.”
  3. Old Business
    1. Lauren Grous
    i. Change/Update SCH: Engineering Mechanics – Statistics (1004)
    1. Tabled from October Meeting
    When the Engineering Statistics class was set up it was created as a 2300 series, which is 3 hours with no Lab. It is in the ACGM as both a 3 hour class and a 4 hour class. Now after teaching the course for a few semesters it appears too beneficial to have the extra hour for the lab portion. They would now like to make this a 2400 series course instead of a 2300, both of which are already in the catalog. This is not a required course, it is recommended. If you are taking the Engineering path to the Associates Degree you would take a different class, but if you were just taking all the Engineering courses that are transferable this course would be recommended.
    Paul Arrigo made motion to approve; seconded by Vicki Hart.
    Motion passed unanimously.
    2. Sarah Tidwell
    i. Miscellaneous: Wording in Catalog regarding Grade Change (1031)
  4. New Business
    1. Tabled from October Meeting
    Tabled until the February 2017 Meeting.
    1. Gregory Lattier
    i. Change/Update Deg/Cert Plan: Business – Marketing (1001)
    This is an addition to the Marketing Certificate, adding the option of Web Page Design. Huntsville does not offer Web Page Design, this gives the choice of Intro to Psychology or Web Page Design. 3 hours are being added to the Marketing Certificate with the “or” as an option for Huntsville.
    Vicki Hart made motion to approve; seconded by Keith Coleman. Motion passes unanimously.
    ii. Change/Update Deg/Cert Plan: Business – Entrepreneurship (1002)
    This will give the choice of Web Page Design or Human Relations.
    Karen Guthmiller made motion to approve; seconded by Charlotte Mueller.
    The total semester credit hours on the degree certificate it says 24 (its currently 24/25) the addition of this course option would bring it to 27/28. It does not change the Certificate level.
    Motion passes unanimously.
    2. Sarah Tidwell
    i. Replace Course: PSYT 1313 with PSYT 1013 (1037)
    This is a bridge class which is required. Requesting to change it to a non-credit class so that Financial Aid does not count it as an elective.
    Stewart Edwards made motion; seconded by Paul Arrigo.
    Motion passes unanimously.
    3. Tamera Gross

    7. Graeme Cox
    i. Change/Update Degree/Cert Plan: Kinesiology Health (1043)
    Degree Plan Change – KINE has 2 degree plans – since the change in total credit hours to 60 and 120 a lot of the courses are not transferring as there isn’t the elective spaces to put them in. Kept the 3 strongest classes that transfer pretty much as those specific classes. Students now have the ability to take 9 hours of other classes that are required by their transfer intuition. The new plan replaces the Coaching degree, thus combining both degrees into one.
    Stewart Edwards made motion; seconded by Paul Arrigo. Motion passes unanimously.
