MOTION PASSED (16 yes, 10 nay)
==============

The UAF Faculty Senate proposes the attached policy on graduation 
"walk-through ."


	EFFECTIVE:   	Immediately
			Upon Chancellor Approval

	RATIONALE: 	The lack of policy in this area has led Deans 
		to approve requests by students to "walk-through" 
		graduation on an ad hoc basis.  Last spring 38 students 
		were approved to do this.  As of this date 14 have not yet 
		completed requirements for their degree.  This motion 
		sets firm guidelines for situations where graduation 
		"walk-through" is appropriate.



Signed:  B. D. Spell, President, UAF Faculty Senate     Date:  2/14/94


APPROVED:  Joan Wadlow, Chancellor  		Date:  3/30/94

*With modifications noted on attachment.  

Note:  A relevant reference document is March 29, 1994 memo to 
Wadlow from Lando (also attached).  


			*****************

PROPOSED GRADUATION "WALK-THROUGH" POLICY


Normally, those participating in the annual commencement ceremony 
shall have satisfactorily completed all degree requirements in the 
immediately preceding summer, fall or spring semesters.

Under very unusual circumstances, a student may be allowed to 
"walk through" the ceremony. Approval to do so will seldom be 
granted and only after a rigorous review of the individual situation.

1.	No masters or doctoral candidates may be granted permission 
	to "walk through" the graduation ceremony without completing 
	all essential degree requirements.

2.	Only an undergraduate student who has applied for graduation 
	as a May, OR SUBSEQUENT SUMMER degree candidate and who is 
	enrolled in all remaining courses/requirements for his/her 
	degree will be considered for approval to "walk through" the 
	ceremony. Each situation will be reviewed on its own merits 
	by the dean of the college in which the student's major is 
	located. The department head will be recommend approval to 
	the dean, who will make the final decision.

Valid reasons for allowing a student to walk through the ceremony:

If a student is unable to complete requirements due to the serious 
illness of the student or a close member of the family (mother, 
father, brother, sister, husband, child) or due to the death of a close 
member of the family (any of the above or close friend or 
grandparents).

If a grade in a required course that has been completed by the 
student is not reported to Admissions and Records by the reporting 
deadline.

If a student is unable to finish a course due to the illness or absence 
of the instructor of the course.

Reasons that are not acceptable for approval to walk through the 
ceremony:

Failure to complete one or more required courses.

Non-approval of last-minute petitions to waive or substitute degree 
requirements.

Approval for a student to walk through the ceremony must reach the 
Admissions and Records Office not later than noon on the Friday 
before Commencement.

MEMORANDUM



To: 		Chancellor Joan Wadlow, UAF

From: 		Clif Lando, Chair
		Faculty Senate Curricular Affairs Committee

Date:   	29 March, 1994

Re:     	Graduation "Walk-through" Policy


The proposed graduation "walk through" policy as recommended by 
the Curricular Affairs Committee and passed by the Faculty Senate 
on February 14 was recently discussed by the Provost's Council: 
Instructional Working Group.  Their recommendation was to modify 
the proposal so as to allow students who would be ready to graduate 
by the end of the subsequent summer to qualify for "walk through".  I 
took this recommendation back to Curricular Affairs and they 
concurred with the modification.  The intent of this change can be 
realized by inserting the wording, "or subsequent Summer" into the 
first sentence of #2 in the proposal.  This sentence would then read 
"Only an undergraduate student who has applied for graduation as a 
May or subsequent summer degree candidate and who is enrolled in 
all remaining courses/requirements for his/her degree will be 
considered for approval to "walk through" the ceremony."  The rest of 
the motion would remain unchanged.

I feel certain that the rest of the Senate would go along with this 
modification, but in the interest of saving time and effort, I suggest 
that you exercise your prerogative of approving with modifications 
and simply make this change.

A.A.S., Financial Institutions Management.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1 994

			DELETION OF PROGRAM REQUEST

August, 1993 

Prepared by:  	Jeanette Morton
		Coordinator, Business Technologies
		College of Rural Alaska
		University of Alaska Fairbanks

Program to be Deleted:

			Financial Institutions Management


Structural changes in the Alaskan Banking System caused by bank 
failures, mergers and takeovers have severely limited employment
opportunities. At this time there are no active degree seeking 
students in this program and only one of the core courses in this 
degree is being offered.

The core courses in this degree are highly specialized and are not 
part of any other program or degree. Deletion of the degree and 
supporting courses will not effect any other program.

Since there are no students seeking this degree and very few of the 
courses have been offered the last six years, there will be no effect 
on personnel, budgets or other resources as these have all been 
reallocated.


Background Information:

The Degree was offered by the Tanana Valley Community College 
prior to the restructuring that eliminated the Community College 
System and was grand-fathered into the UAF system.  A copy of the 
original instructional program request is not available.  The 
description in the catalog (copy enclosed) is all that is provided.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #47 on 
February 14,1994:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the policy providing for the 
admission on non-high school graduates to baccalaureate degree 
programs as follows:

	Non-high school graduates, 18 years of age or older, or 
students who completed high school by passing the G.E.D. test or its 
equivalent, and non-qualified high school graduates, may be 
considered for unrestricted admission to a baccalaureate degree 
program on a case by case basis. Supporting evidence of the 
applicant's academic ability must be submitted for review including 
test results from either the SAT or ACT examinations.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately
			Upon Chancellor Approval

	RATIONALE: 	The U.S. Office of Civil Rights received a 
		complaint that suggested UAF's admission policies for 
		non-high school graduates may discriminate against 
		individuals because of age requirements. The policies 
		state that for admission as an associate degree student, 
		a non-high school graduate must be 18 years of age or 
		older; for admission to a baccalaureate degree program, a 
		non-high school graduate must be 21 years of age or 
		older.

		The Office of Civil Rights does not argue with the 
		university's use of age as a measure of maturity and 
		readiness assessment. OCR agrees that the intent of the 
		18 year age requirement for the associate degree is to 
		include more students.  Therefore, there is no compliance 
		problem with the requirement for admission of a non-
		high school graduate into an associate degree program.  
		OCR feels there is difficulty with the 21 year age 
		requirement for admission to baccalaureate programs 
		because it may exclude a small number of people.  They 
		have asked us to review the policy to determine whether 
		or not the intent of the policy would be compromised if 
		the age limit was changed.

		During the past several years, almost all non-high school 
		graduates have been admitted into associate level 
		programs at UAF.  This has allowed a non-graduate to 
		step into a formal program and immediately benefit as a 
		degree seeking student.  Once the student has completed 
		satisfactorily one or more semesters of full-time work, 
		an application for admission into a baccalaureate 
		program may be approved.

		UAF can remove the 21 year age restriction for 
		admission of non-high school graduates to baccalaureate 
		programs without reducing the university's academic 
		standards because the same review process still can be 
		followed.  Making this change will satisfy the Office of 
		Civil Rights and still provide admission to baccalaureate 
		degree programs for exceptionally talented students who 
		otherwise would not be able to be admitted at this level.  
		Since most non-high school graduate applicants still will 
		be admitted to associate degree programs, the effect of 
		this change will be negligible.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #47 on 
February 14,1994:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the residency credit 
requirement for the Associate and Baccalaureate Degree as follows:


Current Policy:
-------------

At least 15 of your final 30 semester hours applicable to any 
associate degree must be earned at UAF. If you're a bachelor's 
degree, student, you must earn at least 24 upper-division credits 
and at least 30 of the last 36 credits for the degree at UAF. For 
transfer students, you need to earn at UAF at least 12 semester 
credits in your major and at least three semester credits in your 
minor for the baccalaureate degree.


Amended Policy:
--------------

At least 15 semester credits applicable to any associate degree 
must be earned at UAF. At least 30 semester credits, including at 
least 24 credits at the upper-division level, applicable to any 
baccalaureate degree must be earned at UAF. For transfer students, 
at least 12 semester credits in the major and at least three 
semester credits in the minor must be earned at UAF.


	EFFECTIVE:   	Fall 1994

	RATIONALE: 	With the proliferation of TV courses, 
		correspondence courses, credit for prior learning, 
		internships, exchange programs and the mobility of 
		students, the present residency credit requirements are 
		obsolete.

The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its' Meeting #47 on 
February 14,1994:


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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to amend the Transfer Within the UA 
System Policy for students who have fully completed the general 
education requirements at UAA or UAS.


Current Statewide Policy:
-----------------------

Credit for course work successfully completed at one University of 
Alaska institution towards fulfillment of the general education 
requirements at that institution shall transfer towards fulfillment 
of the same categories at all other University of Alaska institutions.


Current UAF Policy:
-----------------

When a student transferring to UAF has completed fully the general 
education requirements at UAA or UAS, he/she automatically will be 
considered to have completed the requirements of the UAF 
baccalaureate core with these exceptions:

UAA 	Must complete:
	1 additional credit of lab science
	3 additional credits at the 300 level in values and choices
	0-1 additional credits in library skills
	upper division oral and writing intensive courses

UAS	Must complete:
	4 additional credits of lab science
	3 additional credits at the 300 level in values and choices
	0-1 additional credits in library skills
	upper division oral and writing intensive courses


Amended UAF Policy:
------------------

When a student transferring to UAF has completed fully the general 
education requirements at UAA or UAS, prior to transfer, he/she 
automatically will be considered to have completed all requirements 
of the UAF baccalaureate core.

	EFFECTIVE:  	Fall 1 994

	RATIONALE: 	UAF will be acceding to statewide 
		administration and Board of Regent's desires by 
		instituting this change. Very few students will qualify 
		for exemption for the core under this proposal. The rest 
		will come under the new core transfer policy for 
		students transferring within the UA system.

Students enrolling for 600-level credit in double-listed (400/600) 
courses must have graduate standing (be accepted in a graduate 
program). Course descriptions for 400/600 courses will include the 
following statement: "graduate standing or permission of instructor 
required for 600-level enrollment."


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE: 	Only students who have been officially 
		admitted as graduate students at UAF should b e 
		permitted to enroll at the 600-level of double-listed 
		(400/600) courses; undergraduate students and students 
		without class standing should enroll at the 400-level in 
		these courses. In order to receive graduate credit, the 
		course must be at a level of complexity and 
		generalization which reflects and extends the knowledge 
		and intellectual maturity of the graduate student, and 
		the student must, by application and acceptance to a 
		graduate program, have demonstrated that he or she has 
		sufficient experience in the field to participate at the 
		graduate level.

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

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve the Graduate Council 
recommendation that the following policy be approved for inclusion 
in the undergraduate and graduate catalogs and in the UAF Faculty 
Senate Course and Degree Procedures Manual.


All requests from departments without graduate programs for new 
600 level courses, including special topics courses, must be 
approved by Graduate School. Special topics courses will be 
reviewed by the Graduate Dean, and all other courses will be 
reviewed by the Graduate Council.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE:	Courses to be taught at the graduate level 
		must be appropriate for graduate credit. Graduate School 
		review of the proposed syllabus should evaluate the level 
		of complexity and scholarly stimulation for graduate 
		level.
