  • Approval of Minutes
    Minutes of February approved electronically vote conducted via e-mail.
  • New Business
    1.  Megan Kuehner presented a further revision of Enrollment Services’ policy on Academic Standing that she had brought to the ASC at the February meeting. The revision was to clarify and simplify the policy. The revised policy defines “Good Standing” as an overall Institutional GPA of 2.00 or better. It further clarifies that if a student fails to achieve a 2.0 Institutional GPA while that student is serving “Academic Probation” that the student is eligible for suspension. The revised policy continues to recognize that College requirements may differ from Institutional requirements and that the student must meet the College’s requirements to continue within that college. Further it recognizes that the length of suspensions also are determined by the Colleges The Committee was in agreement that the revised policy represented minor changes that served to clarify and simplify and did not need an ASC or faculty vote and could be immediately implemented by Enrollment Services. Good Standing Policy as an information item (1) is attached. 

    2. Megan Kuehner and Shawn Brayton presented a minor revision of the Enrollment Services’ policy on “Graduation – First Baccalaureate Degree Requirements.” The nature of the revision was simply to clarify the minimum number of residency hours required at UNF for a UNF degree and the minimum number of hours required within any major. In addition, the policy continues to provide departments the flexibility of determining a higher percentage of credit hours and/or a higher percentage of major courses completed at UNF while also allowing departments to define “major courses.” The Committee was in agreement that the revised policy represented minor changes that served to clarify and did not need an ASC or faculty vote and could be immediately implemented by Enrollment Services. Policy of Graduation – First Baccalaureate Degree Requirements as an information item (II) is attached.   

    3.  Additionally, the revised regulations on FTIC and Transfer Admission (III) previously approved by the Academic Standards Committee at its February meeting and to be presented to the Board of Trustees are attached as information item (IV) - Admissions – Transfer Students (Undergraduate).  

    Chip Klostermeyer, FA President, agreed with the ASC’s disposition of the policy revisions.
