MEMO Date: February 18, 2009 To: Dr. William Francis, Assoc Dean Arts and Sciences From: Dr. Who Subject: 47-hr rule for Name of Student Name of Student (Student ID #, GPA #) is currently enrolled as a full time student in the undergraduate program in Applied Mathematics at The University of Akron. As part of her degree program she is taking 4600:300 Thermodynamics I and 4600:310 Fluid Mechanics I for her outside area of concentration. These courses require 3650:291, 292 Elementary Classical Physics I and II as prerequisites. Name of Student has successfully completed these prerequisite courses and is currently enrolled in the engineering courses. I request that six credits of Elementary Classical Physics I and II count toward the 47-hour rule requirement contingent upon Name of Student successfully completing the engineering courses. Given the courses that Name of Student has completed and the courses for which she is currently enrolled, Name of Student will have satisfied the 47-hr rule with the above approval. If you have any questions regarding this request, please call me at x1234. Thank you.
