Academic Policy Change

Policy changes:

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:

                DELETE Academic Policy 1.35-6  (p. 43) and all accompanying references (pp. 1-2)

 

1.35-6  PRE-PROGRAMS

 

                Enrollment Services may accept students into a program, even though their review of the student's application indicates a need for additional coursework to properly prepare a student for his or her chosen course of study. These students are classified on Delhi's campus as "pre-program".  A Pre - Program acceptance may mean:  1) required developmental studies for students whose study skills, reading, English and/or math skills require strengthening; or 2) required prerequisites are lacking.  Registration in developmental courses will be determined through evaluation of the student's high school transcript in combination with the student's performance on the ASSET placement test.

 

                At the end of each semester all "pre-program" students will be re-evaluated by the appropriate academic Dean and any changes in status will be sent to the Registrar. After the completion of one academic year of study, all "pre-program" designations should be removed from a student's record.

Suggested Change 3:

                CHANGE Academic Policy 1.374  (p. 52) and accompanying reference within Academic Policy 1.373-J

(p. 52 )

 

1.373      SPECIAL GRADES/NOTATIONS

 

                       A.     W - Withdrawn

 

1.             Definition.  A voluntary relinquishment of one's enrollment in a course.

 

2.             Intent of Policy.  This policy places the ultimate responsibility for the decision to drop a course with the student.  The role of the instructor and the advisor is to challenge, advise and discuss long-range implications of the decision.  The instructor does not have the “right" to refuse to sign a student's withdrawal form without cause, up to and including the last day for course withdrawal.  If, however, it were proven that a student had plagiarized an assignment, cheated or engaged in disruptive behavior, then the instructor would be justified in refusing to sign a withdrawal form for the student.  For full-time students, withdrawals which result in the student's course load falling below 12 hours shall have the approval of the department chair or division dean.

 

3.             Computations.  A grade of W is equitable to no credit hours attempted and no quality points earned.  In other words, a course in which a W is recorded is not computed in the GPA.

 

B.            WI - Withdrawn by Instructor.  A grade of WI is given to a student who is withdrawn from a course by an instructor.  A grade of WI is equitable to no credit hours attempted and no quality points earned.  In other words, a course in which a WI is recorded is not computed in the GPA.  A student withdrawn from a course after the withdrawal date will receive a grade of F.

 

C.            WP - Withdrawn Passing.  A grade of WP is given to a student who withdraws from college after midterm while doing satisfactory work.  For courses which meet for less than one semester, midterm is defined as the midpoint of the course.  A grade of WP is equitable to no credit hours attempted and no quality points earned.  In other words, a course in which a WP is recorded is not computed in the GPA.

 

D.            WF - Withdrawn Failing.  A grade of WF is given to a student doing unsatisfactory work and who withdraws from college after midterm.  For courses which meet for less than one semester, midterm is defined as the midpoint of the course.  A grade of WF is equitable to no credit hours attempted and no quality points earned.  In other words, a course in which a WF is recorded is not computed in the GPA.

 

E.            P - Pass.  A grade of P is given to a student who satisfactorily completes all of the requirements of a course.  Credit will be given for the course but no quality points will be awarded.  In other words, a course in which a P is recorded is not computed in the GPA.

 

F.             NP - Not Pass.  A grade of NP is given to a student who does not satisfactorily complete the requirements of a course.  No credit will be given for the course and no quality points will be awarded.

 

G.            IN - Incomplete.  This designation indicates the temporary withholding of a grade.  It may be used in cases where a student has not been able to complete a course for what, in the instructor’s judgment, is a compelling reason.  The grade of IN must be changed to a letter grade within 20 calendar days from the end-of-term date for a given academic term.  Failure to submit a change of grade by this time will result in the Incomplete becoming an F grade.  Implicit is the understanding that the instructor and the student have reached an agreement, in writing, of the nature of the course work which the student will complete by the extended due date.

 

H.            IP - In Progress.  This grade is used for those courses which begin in one semester and end in a subsequent semester.

 

I.             AH - Articulation-High School.  A grade of AH is used for those courses which have been awarded credit through approved secondary school/SUNY Delhi articulated credit agreements.

 

J.             E - Exclude.  This notation indicates that the grade in the designated course is excluded from the calculation of the GPA.  (See Sections 1.351 G and 1.374)

 

K.            I - Include.  This notation indicates that the grade in the designated course is included in the calculation of the GPA.

 

And

 

1.374      REPEATING COURSES

 

                Students may elect twice to repeat a course(s) previously taken; this includes courses in which a student receives any grade, including a grade of W, WI, WP or WF.  Students who repeat a course will have the grade points previously earned recalculated to exclude the lower grade and to include the higher grade.  This grade point recalculation will only apply to the degree in progress at the time of exclusion.  Grades may not be excluded once a degree has been conferred. All grades will be retained on the transcript.  No additional credit is earned by repeating a course if the previous grade was a passing grade.  If a student still fails to receive a passing grade in a required course, he/she may request approval to repeat the required course from both the dean of the division office offering the course and the Provost.

 

Motion to approve T. Philion; seconded J. Taylor; approved

 

Suggested Change 4:

                CHANGE Academic Policy 1.382  (p. 55) and accompanying references in Table of Contents (p. 3)

 

1.382  RECOGNITION OF SCHOLASTIC ACHIEVEMENT FOR A SEMESTER

 

A.            High Honor List - a GPA of 3.75 or more in a semester qualifies a student carrying 6 credits a semester or more for that semester's High Honor List.

B.            Honor List - a GPA of 3.50 through 3.74 inclusive in a semester shall qualify a student carrying 6 credits a semester or more for that semester's Honor List.

C.                  High Honor and Honor recognitions will be noted on the student’s transcript and in a letter and certificate from the Provost.

Dean’s List – a GPA of 3.50 or more in a semester qualifies a student carrying six credits a semester or more for that semester’s Dean’s List.  Dean’s List recognition will be noted on the student’s transcript and in a letter and certificate from the Provost.
