Item 3 Open Comments

Chair Korman will offer opportunity for open comments concerning items on this agenda.

Item 4 Approval of Amendments to a Regulation – 2.0382R Admissions Transfer Students (Undergraduate)

The purpose of this item is to seek approval of proposed amendments to the Admissions – Transfer Students (Undergraduate) regulation.

 

The administration is proposing amendments to the Admissions – Transfer Students (Undergraduate) regulation. The proposed amendments are an effort to bind existing practice to this regulation and to the Selective Admissions Procedure. Our current practice is that the university does not require transfer applicants without an AA to complete the prerequisite courses prior to admissions. The university only allows programs to implement an admissions strategy like this after following the institution’s Selective Admissions Procedure. UNF’s Selective Admissions process assures that instituting the requirement of completing prerequisites does not have a significant negative impact on FTE generation, diversity, etc.

 

Provost Earle Traynham will address the committee and present this item.
