PROPOSAL 26-05

(Voting Units: Academic Senators)

 

CHANGE TO PROPOSAL 28-04

ADDITIONAL GRADES OF 'E*' AND 'U*' INDICATING ACADEMIC DISHONESTY

 

Background:E* and U* grades are administered differently than the F* grade.†† For the F* grade, a student is typically assigned an F for a course and the Office of Judicial Affairs provides the student an opportunity complete an assignment that will not cause the F grade to change to a F* grade.†† For the E* and U* grades, a student is assigned the E* and U* for a course and then the * is removed upon completion of an assignment.This procedure means that the E* or U* remains on the studentís transcript during the period in which he/she is completing the assignment, which is not the case for the F* grade.†† This Proposal would ensure uniform administration of the F*, E* and U* grades.

Recommendation:Delete parts of Proposal 28-04 given by strikethroughs and add to Proposal 28-04 those sentences given in bold print.
