The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #10 on 
March 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED (Unanimous Approval)
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the policy on make-up work 
for students participating in university-sponsored activities as 
follows:

((   )) = deletion    CAPS  =  addition


((1.  Students who must be absent from class to participate in 
university-sponsored activities shall be permitted to make up any 
work they have missed, in a period of time agreed upon between the 
instructor and student prior to the absence. Such students shall not 
be penalized for absences incurred for such university-sponsored 
activities, although students must meet course requirements in all 
other respects. University-sponsored activities are defined as 
officially sanctioned functions. Notwithstanding the above, it is 
still the student's responsibility to determine for himself/herself 
whether or not such absences unduly risk successful completion of 
their courses and choose accordingly.))

STUDENTS WHO CHOOSE TO BE ABSENT FROM CLASS TO PARTICIPATE 
IN UNIVERSITY-SPONSORED OR OTHER ACTIVITIES MAY BE PERMITTED 
TO MAKE UP ANY WORK THEY HAVE MISSED. ALL ARRANGEMENTS MUST 
BE MADE BETWEEN THE STUDENT AND INSTRUCTOR PRIOR TO THE 
ABSENCE. THE STUDENT AND INSTRUCTOR SHOULD MAKE A GOOD FAITH 
EFFORT TO ASSURE THAT THE STUDENT IS NOT UNDULY PENALIZED FOR 
EACH ABSENCE. SUCH ACTIVITIES SHOULD NOT BE SCHEDULED SO AS 
TO CONFLICT WITH THE FINALS SCHEDULE.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE: 	It is disruptive to the academic process for 
		students to be absent from the final. In addition, it is 
		difficult for the instructor to fairly evaluate a student 
		who takes the final at a different time or may have to 
		take a substitute final.

March 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED (Unanimous Approval)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend placement test policy as 
follows:

((  )) = deletion   CAPS = addition

1. 	A placement test is required for all students entering a 
	degree/certificate program for the first time.

2. 	A placement test is required for all students planning to take 
	a 100 level written communication or mathematics course.

3. 	A placement test is recommended for ((all entering)) FIRST 
	TIME students.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1989

	RATIONALE: 	This change distinguishes first time college 
		students from transfer students.

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #10 on 
March 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED (Unanimous Approval)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to adopt the following policy for 
credits earned prior to and during UAF restructure:

One of the following classifications may be selected for credit 
earned prior to the 1988 fall semester at former community 
colleges and rural education centers that are now part of UAF by 
students who move from one UAF unit to another:

1. 	RESIDENCE CREDIT:  Total credits and all grade point factors 
	earned from work attempted at other UAF units will be brought 
	forward to the UAF record.

2. 	TRANSFER CREDIT:  The total credits earned at other UAF units 
	will be brought forward to the UAF record as transfer credit.  
	(Grade point average factors do not transfer.)


NOTE:  UAF correspondence study credit has been approved as 
	residence credit beginning with the 1989 Fall semester.  
	UA/UAF correspondence study credit earned prior to that date 
	would continue to be considered only as transfer credit.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Upon Chancellor's Approval

	RATIONALE: 	Before restructuring, students attended units 
		of the University of Alaska knowing that their grade 
		point averages would not transfer if they moved to 
		another UA major academic unit.  Although most students 
		would want their grade point averages to be combined, 
		some went to other units with the purpose of taking 
		courses which would not impact their GPA's elsewhere.

		Approval of this policy would allow students the choice 
		of whether or not to combine their GPA's and have all 
		work considered as residence credit, or to have the 
		credits earned brought forward as transfer credit with 
		no impact on the GPA.  The intent of this policy is to 
		lessen the impact of restructuring on students such as 
		those from the former TVCC who, essentially, have been 
		forced to change institutions.

		Students electing to have total credits and grade point 
		average factors combined on their academic records 
		would be qualified to apply the repeat policy where 
		courses are equivalent according to the Alaska Transfer 
		Guide.

		This would not affect students who were able to 
		continue their education in the same unit (i.e., attended 
		Northwest Community College previously and now attend 
		the UA Northwest campus.)  Likewise, students attending 
		UAF at the Fairbanks campus have been relatively 
		unaffected by restructuring and have no need to have an 
		option to allow for an adjustment of their grade point 
		averages and this policy would not apply to them.

The UAF Faculty Senate approved the following at its Meeting #10 on 
March 10, 1989:


MOTION PASSED AS AMENDED (Unanimous Approval)
==========================

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend policy on auditing as exists 
in catalog to the following:

Auditing
--------

1. 	A student wishing to enroll in one or more courses for 
	informational purposes only may register as an auditor 
	provided that space is available in the course(s).

	An auditor must pay the standard credit fees for the course, 
	but the credit is not included in the computation of study load 
	for full-time/part-time determination or for overload status.

	The requirement, acceptance, and review of work and lab 
	privileges are at the discretion of the instructor. No grades 
	will be given, no credit awarded, and courses taken as an audit 
	will not apply toward degree requirements, nor will they 
	transfer to other institutions.

2. 	The intention to audit a course should be made known within 
	the registration period. The following conditions apply to the 
	change of audit conditions:

	a. 	Audit to credit must be completed on or before the 
		deadline to add a course.

	b. 	Credit to audit must be completed on or before the 
		deadline for student initiated withdrawals.

3. 	It is the responsibility of the instructor to set the 
	requirements under which an "AU" is to be recorded and to 
	submit "AU" for those auditors who satisfy the requirements. 
	An auditor not receiving a grade of "AU" receives a "W".

4. 	A student who has audited a class may not request local credit 
	by examination for that class for at least one year.

5. 	The official definition of audit that will appear in the catalog 
	is: "Audit - A registration status indicating that the student 
	has enrolled for informational instruction only. No academic 
	credit is granted."


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1989

	RATIONALE: 	Better enunciates the procedures involved 
		with auditing.
