The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting # 98 on December 
11, 2000:


MOTION:
======

The UAF Faculty Senate moves to replace the current High School 
Enrollment Policy with the following: 


CURRENT POLICY
---------------------

High School Students
UAF offers three opportunities for high school students to enroll in 
university classes: dual enrollment, the AHEAD program and TECH PREP.  
For information on these programs please contact your high school 
guidance counselor or the UAF Admissions counselor phone (907) 474-
7500 or (800) 478-1823, or web www.uaf.edu/admred/ 
admissions/docs/highschool/.

Dual Enrollment
The dual enrollment program allows high school students to register for 
UAF classes.  This program is open to the following:
* High school seniors with a GPA of 2.5 or above may register for two 
classes for a maximum of six credits.
* High school seniors with a GPA of 2.0 to 2.5 may register for one 
class.
* High school juniors with a GPA of 2.75 or above may register for one 
class.
* All other students are encouraged to contact the director of 
Admissions for information on course enrollment at UAF.

*High school students may enroll in vocational and developmental 
courses, depending upon program requirements, after obtaining 
approval signatures from their parent (guardian), high school official, 
the instructor of the class, and the appropriate university program 
coordinator.

Pick up a Dual Enrollment Application Form (valid for one semester) 
from your high school counseling office. You must file an application for 
each semester you wish to attend.

Note:   enrollment in UAF courses through the Dual Enrollment program 
does not constitute admission to the university. 


PROPOSED POLICY
-----------------------

Secondary School Students
UAF offers three opportunities for secondary students to enroll in 
university classes: secondary student enrollment, the AHEAD program, 
and TECH PREP.  For information on these programs please contact 
your high school guidance counselor, your local rural campus, or the 
UAF Admissions Office, phone (907) 474-7500 or (800) 478-1823, or 
web www.uaf.edu/admred/admissions/docs/highschool/.

Secondary Student Enrollment
The secondary student enrollment process allows secondary students 
to register for UAF classes.  A student meeting course prerequisites 
may enroll in university courses with permission of the instructor.

Secondary students must consult their appropriate school district 
officials and school counselors prior to registration for approval if they 
wish to use university courses to meet high school graduation 
requirements.

Registering for courses at UAF establishes a permanent academic 
record that will reflect student academic performance in all courses 
attempted.

Note:   enrollment in UAF courses as a secondary student does not 
constitute formal admission to the university for the purposes of 
earning a certificate or degree.


AHEAD Program
Remains the same.


TECH PREP Opportunities
Remains the same.


	EFFECTIVE:  	Immediately

	RATIONALE: 	This motion clarifies the process necessary 
		for the enrollment of secondary students into courses 
		at UAF and removes obstacles from students who are 
		eager to learn.  Additionally, it allows us to treat 
		these students the same way we treat older students 
		who just sign up for a course or two.  Streamlining this 
		process will serve to encourage participation by secondary 
		students who would profit from UAF courses.  There are 
		no changes to the AHEAD Program or the Tech Prep 
		program.

Executive Summary
M.S., Statistics

To properly manage the State's renewable and non-renewable 
resources and advance scientific enquiry requires the careful application 
of statistical methods.  The creation of a master's program in Statistics 
at the UAF Department of Mathematical Sciences (the only such 
master's program in the State of Alaska) will help supply locally trained 
biometricians and consulting statisticians for employment in Alaska.  
The Department of Mathematical Sciences at UAF has successfully run 
an interdisciplinary master's program in applied statistics for five years, 
and seeks only to formalize the program.  The creation of a master's 
program in Statistics will thus incur no additional costs, while the 
program will supply University researchers and State agencies access to 
highly qualified graduate students in Statistics.  


The Masters in Statistics is meant to prepare students for careers in 
applied statistics.  Graduates of the program could be labeled 
quantitative biologist, biometricians, quantitative geologists, 
geostatisticians, psychometricians, epidemiologists or mathematical 
statisticians, depending upon their specific coursework.  As an 
organizing principle of the program, we will ensure that all students 
meet the requirements of successful employment as a biometrician for 
the Alaska Department of Fish and Game and will qualify for the State 
of Alaska's Biometrician register.  In addition, this program will prepare 
students to enter a Ph.D. program in Statistics.  

The program combines core courses in statistical theory with elective 
courses in statistical methodology.  In addition, each student will take 
electives in one or more of mathematics, biology, fisheries, wildlife, 
geology, forestry, marine sciences, economics or other applied 
sciences.  Doctoral students in these areas may pursue the Masters in 
Statistics simultaneously.  The program is intended to take two 
academic years to complete.  It is designed to work especially well as a 
joint program for Ph.D. students in the sciences.  

This program has been a successful interdisciplinary graduate program 
since its inception in 1996.  The ten graduates of the graduate 
program have all been successful in obtaining employment.
