  2. General exceptions to Rule 1 will be made if approved by the chairs/directors of the department(s)/program(s) housing each affected major and minor. A list of standing general exceptions will be maintained by the Dean's office.
  3. Individual student exceptions may be made in appropriate cases by department chairs and program directors.
  4. Departments and Programs may enforce stricter double-dipping policies than those stated above, which also should be provided to the Dean’s Office
