Other apparent differences: Senate proposal impacts all students from initial implementation; GCPTF recommended phased implementation for transfers and delayed implementation for programs in Dance, Music, and Theatre. Senate proposal restricts each course prefix to one use per student; GCPTF recommended only once per each of the three Knowledge areas. Senate proposes a 27- hour program for transfers and a 30-hour program for four-year students; GCPTF recommended thirty hours for all. There may be other differences; these were readily noticed.
