The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting # 90 on

MOTION:
======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to change the deadline for students to 
select the credit/no credit option as follows:


CURRENT POLICY:  The credit/no credit option deadline is the 10th day 
of instruction for the semester.

PROPOSED CHANGE:  The credit/no credit option deadline is the 3rd 
Friday following the first day of instruction.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Spring 2000

	RATIONALE:  	This change will put the deadline for this 
 		option in line with all other deadlines (adding classes,  
		dropping classes, withdrawal deadline, etc.) that were 
		adjusted several years ago. This adds two days (normally) 
		to the amount of time a student has to select this option.
