Final Year of Academic Residence
Normally a student is expected to take his or her final 30
credit hours of academic work here at Butler. If it appears that
you need to take one or more classes at another university, you
should discuss this with the dean in your college. In some
circumstances she or he may grant "Permission to Intrude".
