Per the Faculty Executive Committee and Faculty Senate requests to the UCAPC , the committee started its review of the “Guidelines Governing the Implementation of the Registration and Add Policy and the Attendance and Drop Policy” issued by the Office of the Provost, August 15, 2000. The committee reviewed the original “Policy” as approved by the Faculty Senate, the University Faculty, and the Board of Trustees. However, it was generally unaware of the specifics of the issuance of the August 15 “Implementation Guidelines” as the document was not previously reviewed by the UCAPC and it was questioned as to whether or not is was reviewed or approved by the Faculty Senate. Upon review, the committee expressed the opinion that the “Policy” as it regards the designation of courses as enrollment restricted to “Instructor Permission Required” and “Instructor Permission Required after Term Begins” is an established part of the normal curriculum process that emanates with individual faculty/department/college course proposals and proceeds through the required curriculum review of the department/college/university curriculum committees and the Faculty Senate. The approved mechanism for such designations resides in the submission of Course Modification and Course Inventory Requests for the determination of “Enrollment Restriction.” The committee considered this long standing procedure for curricular matters as a preferred method of implementing the “Registration/Add and Attendance/Drop Policy.”After two hours of meeting, the committee decided to recess and reconvene with a special meeting to further address the issue of the Add/Drop Policy "Implementation" on Tuesday, October 31, 2000 at 3:45 p.m.
