Non-Standard Time Requests

Pending Unfinished Business

Equivalent and Cross Listed Courses (Delker/Wheatley)

Wheatley distributed a list of cross-listed and equivalent courses for review. CAPP members need to submit cross-listed and equivalent courses from their respective colleges for inclusion on the list.

Wheatley requested that an “alert” be placed in the course schedule and in iSIS to help students, advisors, and others identify cross-listed and equivalent courses.

A definition of a cross-listed course and of an equivalent course needs to be added to the glossary of academic terms.

New Business

None

Standing Reports

Academic Affairs/ Faculty Senate (Bennett)

Steve Dandaneau attended the Academic Affairs (AA) Meeting. Changing the grading scale to include a plus and minus was a topic discussed with the senators.

The policy governing that when a course has been dropped the course number may not be reissued for 5 years from the effective date will be amended to allow the course number to be immediately reassigned if there was an error in dropping the course.

The South Asian Studies minor was reviewed by AA and will be considered by Faculty Senate. Apparently, the list of approved electives for this minor includes courses that do not consistently include at least 25% South Asian content. The director will be responsible for approving courses that meet the content requirement.

Admissions/ Financial Aid

Registrar (Nielsen)

Enrollment for Spring 2013 continues to take place. There is a strong interest to allow students who are participating in the Honors Program to have priority enrollment. Auten, Keifer, and Nielsen are meeting to examine the changes that would need to take place to accommodate these students. Implementation would take place in Fall 2013 for Spring 2014.
