The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #37 on 
October 19, 1992:


MOTION PASSED (unanimous)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the Transfer of Credit 
policy as follows:

[[  ]]	Deletions
CAPS 	Additions

Credit accepted for transfer to UAF which has been earned at other 
regionally accredited institutions, through military educational 
experiences or credit accepted by special approval, is considered 
transfer credit.  Where possible, transfer credit is equated with UAF 
courses.

THE UNIVERSITY WILL AWARD COURSE CREDIT FOR SPECIFIED 
NATIONAL AND STATE AUTHORIZATIONS, CERTIFICATES, 
CREDENTIALS, AND/OR EXAMINATIONS.  THE OFFICE OF ADMISSIONS 
AND RECORDS WILL MAINTAIN AN APPROVED LIST OF THESE TOGETHER 
WITH APPROPRIATE COURSE EQUIVALENCIES.


	EFFECTIVE: 	Spring 1993
			Upon Chancellor's approval

	RATIONALE:	The proposed change in Credit for Prior 
		Learning policy which implements an accreditation 
		recommendation from the Northwest Association of 
		Schools and Colleges would jeopardize existing 
		agreements with state and national programs which 
		award credit for certain certificates and exams.  This 
		change in transfer policy removes credit earned from 
		these agreements from the Credit for Prior Learning 
		category to Transfer Credit classification and thus 
		preserves the agreements.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting #37 on 
October 19, 1992:


MOTION PASSED (unanimous)
===============

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the attached list of 
professional programs for transfer credit under revised UAF 
Transfer Credit Policy.  

	EFFECTIVE: 	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	This motion completes implementation of 
		the Transfer Credit Policy revision by establishing a list 
		of professional programs approved for transfer credit to 
		be maintained in the Office of Admissions and Records.  
		Programs on this list and the corresponding agreements 
		with governmental and professional organizations have 
		been in effect at UAF in the past; the effect of this 
		motion is to move them from the category of Credit for 
		Prior Learning to that of Transfer Credit.  The complete 
		list of national, state, and professional authorizations, 
		certificates, credentials, and/or examination 
		accompanied by a listing of appropriate course 
		equivalencies are on file with the Governance Office.

		modifications in the list of professional programs 
		qualified for transfer credit maintained by the Office 
		of Admissions and Records.  (This motion, as were last

		APPROVAL PROCESS FOR AMENDING LIST OF 
	PROFESSIONAL PROGRAMS QUALIFYING FOR TRANSFER CREDIT


The Office of Admissions and Records shall maintain a list of 
national, state and professional certificates, examinations, 
authorizations and/or credentials (hereafter collectively referred to 
as "certifications") which are approved for transfer credit under 
revised University Transfer Credit Policy.  Each such certification 
shall be accompanied by a listing of appropriate course 
equivalencies.

The initial list of authorized programs will be approved by the 
Senate on recommendation of the Curricular Affairs Committee.  
Thereafter, the following process will be utilized for amending the 
list:

	Proposed amendments shall be forwarded by cognizant deans 
	to the Senate where they will undergo review identical to 
	that for substantive undergraduate program and course 
	changes, i.e., unanimous approval by the Curriculum Review 
	Committee subsequent to publication and an appropriate 
	comment period (currently 10 days).  Irreconcilable 
	disagreement on the part of this committee or between the 
	committee and the proposers shall be referred to the 
	Curricular Affairs Committee for final resolution.  Proposals 
	will then be forwarded to the Office of the Vice Chancellor 
	for Academic Affairs.

	Proposals for additions to the list shall include:

	A.	Complete name of sponsoring professional organization 
		and titles of specific certifications qualifying for 
		transfer credit.

	B.	Rationale, including types of training and/or experiences 
		required for each certification and its relationship to 
		university studies.

	C.	Expected budgetary impact.

	D.	List of UAF course equivalencies and corresponding 
		credit hours to be used in awarding transfer credit.
