Memo

 

Date:               May 25, 2010

 

To:                   Julee Miller, Presider, College Faculty Senate

 

From:              Michael Branigan, Chair, Academic Policies Committee

 

Subject:          Changes in Academic Policy

 

The Academic Policies Committee would like to recommend the following changes to academic policy.

All changes are highlighted.  Deletions appear with a

 

double strikethrough, while proposed additions appear in a red colored font. 

Suggested Change 1:

         CHANGE to Academic Policy 1.35-1-H  Withdrawal from Courses

H.        Withdrawal from Courses

 

                         1.        A student may withdraw from any course if the following conditions are met:

 

a.         The student has not twice withdrawn (or been withdrawn) from the course.

 

d. b.     The student has first consulted with, and obtained the signature of, the course instructor.  Following consultation with the course instructor, the student will then have to consult with, and obtain the signature of their academic advisor.    has consulted with and obtained signatures from both their advisor and the course instructor.

 

  1.       Withdrawal is accomplished prior to the end of the business day on the last day of  

the 10th week.  Prior to the end of the business day on the last day of the 10th week, at the discretion of and with written permission from the instructor, any student who has a 90 percent or higher attendance rate and who has consistently demonstrated an effort and interest in the course, may withdraw up to the Monday of the 14th week of classes.

 

b. d.     The full-time student's current semester load does not fall below 12 credit hours.  The department chair's or division dean’s written approval is needed for a full-time student to drop below 12 credit hours.

 

 

2.         A grade of W shall be given for course withdrawals which meet the above conditions.  A grade of F shall be given for all course withdrawals not meeting these conditions. 

 

Suggested Change 2:

            CHANGE/ADDITION to Academic Policy 1.35-1-G

 

G.        Change of Program or Curriculum

 

            The student may petition for a change of program or curriculum by completing the Change of Curriculum Request Form.  Such change requires the approval of the receiving department chair or division dean or designee.  The receiving department chair or division dean will review the student's transcript record and indicate to the student (in writing) as to the decision of acceptance to the program.  For the student who has been accepted, the department chair or division dean will also indicate in writing those courses that will meet graduation requirements in the student’s new curriculum or program, based upon the current college catalog in place at the time of this change.  In certain cases, an academic program may have a set of internal admission standards (e.g. – Nursing, Veterinary Science).  The student should consult with the receiving department/division for these standards.

 

            The academic advisor can request the College Registrar to have specific courses removed from the GPA computation so that only discipline specific requirements associated with the new program's course work will be included in the GPA.  All grades from courses taken at the college remain on the student's academic transcript.  The courses that are excluded from the GPA are given an "E" designation on the academic transcript.  (See Section 1.373)
