Every Week I am required to attend a "Graduate Seminar" as part of my degree program. Two weeks ago the professor in charge of the program told us that they had added 2 credit hours to the graduation requirements (increasing the total from 30 to 32). While this isn't a large number, most of us have had our programs of study mapped out for quite some time already and making room for this change would be difficult. I asked if this change applied to students in the combined degree program as well. I was told that it did and I left the seminar a little disappointed (and glad that I was taking 17 credit hours this semester, because I'll need more than I planned on in the spring as well).
Yesterday we all received an e-mail from the same professor stating that he had misinformed us and that because we had signed up for the program last year, we would only be held to the standards that were in place last year. Needless to say, I was extremely pleased. I will only need 10 credit hours in the spring. 4 of them are undergraduate credits and I'll only need 6 graduate credits in order to graduate. Woohoo!
