Procedure for Implementation
of
Registration and Add Policy and Attendance and Drop Policy



Winter Quarter 2001, Spring Quarter 2001, and Summer Quarters 2001

Due to the fact that faculty, department, and college scheduling plans for the remainder of this academic year are well underway, if not completed, the Office of the Provost's "Guidelines for Governing" these policies as issued August 15, 2000 will temporarily remain in effect for the purpose of designating course enrollment restrictions as "Instructor Permission Required" and "Instructor Permission Required After Term Begins." Those "Guidelines for Governing" will remain in effect for course offerings through the Summer 2001 Class Schedule.

Fall Quarter 2001

Beginning with course offerings for the Fall 2001 Class Schedule, the University Curriculum and Academic Policy Committee's "Procedure for Implementation" of these policies is to be followed by faculty, departments, and colleges for the purpose of designating course enrollment restrictions as "Instructor Permission Required" and "Instructor Permission Required After Term Begins." In addition, courses previously so designated under the Office of the Provost "Guidelines for Governing" will need to be submitted under this Procedure.

Given the Office of the Registrar due dates for the Fall 2001 Class Schedule, the following approximate schedule is designed to assist faculty, departments, and colleges in their curriculum and scheduling processes:

January 2001 (mid month): registrar sends Fall 2001 class schedule requests to colleges.
       January 2001 (mid month): UCAPC meeting
       February 2001 (mid month): UCAPC meeting
February 2001 (mid month): first draft of class schedules due to Registrar
February 2001 (end of month): registrar sends proofs of class schedules to colleges
March 2001 (first week): colleges have one week to submit final changes to Registrar
       March 2001 (mid month): UCAPC meeting
March 2001 (last week): last possible changes to schedules due prior to printing
April 20, 2000: Fall 2001 class schedule published and delivered to campus
April 28, 2000: Fall Registration begins
At each UCAPC meeting, the committee considers course modification and inventory proposals that are received at least one full week in advance of each meeting. Upon approval of any proposals, it generally takes less than one week following the UCAPC meeting for the Office of the Registrar to administer the course modifications and inventories.

Courses designated with any enrollment restriction, including "Instructor Permission Required" and "Instructor Permission Required After Term Begins," for Fall Quarter 2001 will continue in the future to be so designated unless modified by faculty, departments, and colleges through the established curriculum procedure.

The committee scheduled its next meeting for November 30, 2000 at 3:00 p.m.
