ghodge 9/17/2015 N/A and no change sections need to be completed. Information may be in syllabus, but also needs to be listed in the CIM fields. Syllabus indicates the last update was 1997. Perhaps it is time for an update. Why is this a 4 credit hour course? Syllabus does not show a lab. Return to department for update

ghodge 11/11/2015 see my comments attached as additional documentation. Return to program for edits.
Ting. 1/13/2016 changes and corrections were made accordingly

ghodge 1/20/2016 Changes look good. But, I can not determine from the syllabus what is the 2 hour lab. Student evaluation methods do not describe the lab. Return to department for clarification.

ting: 1/20/2016 A statement about the counseling lab class is added to the syllabus, end of first paragraph on p. 12: "Students meet in groups outside of class time for about 2 hours weekly in a counseling laboratory for this project." Students attend the lab, discuss, and complete the SC3 project.

ghodge 2/1/2016 Ready for ABGS reviewers.
