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. *************** The UAF Faculty Senate passed the following at its Meeting # 98 on December 11, 2000: MOTION: ======= The UAF Faculty Senate moves to approve a M.S. degree program in Statistics. EFFECTIVE: Fall 2001 or Upon Board of Regents' Approval RATIONALE: See full program proposal #40 on file in the Governance Office, 312 Signersą Hall. *************** 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.
