POLICY COMMITTEE CHAIRS' REPORTS

SECOND READING

FS 04-53/APC CHANGE IN REGISTRATION PRIORITIES

There will be a request to withdraw this from the agenda, as AS 96-11 (link to language of AS 96-11) already establishes this priority as policy.

The Faculty Senate recommends that current university regulations governing registration priority be amended to allow entering freshmen attending orientation the opportunity to register and enroll in classes during orientation.

See Attachment E for background information.

FS 04-54/APC SPECIAL MAJOR GPA

The Faculty Senate recommends that the minimum GPA required for admission to the CSUS Special Major program be changed from 2.5 to 2.0.  This will bring the GPA admission requirement in line with that for other programs across the University.

See Attachment F for background information.

FIRST READING

FS 04-59/APC ELIMINATION OF CREDIT/NO CREDIT GRADING OPTION

The Faculty Senate recommends elimination of the credit/no credit (CR/NC) option for courses in which the student would normally be assigned a letter grade.  [Note:  This change would not apply to those courses, such as co-curricular courses, fieldwork, field tours, theses, supervised teaching, and similar courses in which CR/NC is the normal grading option.]

See Attachment A for background information.
