When the sun rises this Friday over the red cliffs that surround St. George, Ut., the debate will finally end. Should UVSC be allowed to significantly expand its four-year curriculum? Or will the Regents shut down UVSC's ambitions for the final time?

A4 At Semester transition will modify schedules CHANGE UP The rest of Utah's colleges and universities will be joining the rest of the nation with a semester schedule. By Lisa Ipson News Reporter Starting Fall of 1998, Utah's nine colleges and universities will be on the semester schedule due to a decision from the Board of Regents. The decision was made in 1995, after being proposed and knocked down about nine years prior. Karl Worthington, associate vice president of academic affairs, said, "The decision was made because more schools are on the semester system than quarter system, nation wide." UVSC is already on the semester . schedule, but students will notice a lot of changes in the fall class schedules. In order to make it easier for students to transfer to other colleges, UVSC has changed all class call numbers from three digits to four digits, as has the rest of the colleges and universities. Class names have also been changed in some courses. Academic Advisement Director Ray Madsen said, "Fall schedules will look very different, but don't be alarmed. Students that are already enrolled in a program will be able to complete that program."W hen it comes to the effect that these changes will have on students, Worthington reassures students by stating, "We do not want to harm students with these changes, so for instance if the changes cause a student to be one credit hour short, then we will waive that credit hour." Academic Advisement will post all the class name changes in their department when they come available as to make it easier for students to register for fall semester. Fall semester schedules will be later than usual due to the changes, but summer schedules should know be available on the internet, and on the registration computers.
