Changes Underway

In the computer registration system, CI 5381 Advanced Creativity, Curiosity, and Interest still officially requires a prerequisite course, CI 5310.  However, CI 5381 has been redesigned; and prerequisite knowledge and skills are no longer necessary for taking CI 5381.  All interested students may get the prerequisite waived for Spring 2018 by completing the departmental online request form: http://www.education.txstate.edu/ci/resources/forms/course-override.html . Students will be notified by administrative office staff after they have been cleared for registration for CI 5381.

A proposal to remove the prerequisite for CI 5381 is moving through the university's curriculum approval process this year.  A revised course title for CI 5381 is also moving through this year's curriculum approval process.  The proposed new title is Creativity, Interest, and World(s).  If these changes are approved, the title change and prerequisite change will take effect in the 2018-19 catalog of courses.
