Senate Motion #2012-34
Motion Introduced by: Student-Faculty Policy Committee, Cristi Coursen, Chair
Date of First Reading: March 26, 2012
Date of Second Reading: April 23, 2012
Title of Motion: Request to require students on probation (with a GPA below 2.0) to complete UNI 220: Academic Refresher
Action Requested: The Student-Faculty Policy Committee recommends that students placed on academic probation (with a GPA below 2.0) be required to complete UNI 220: Academic Refresher—that the course be added to students’ DARS.
Rationale: UNI 120: Academic Refresher helps students to take responsibility for their own academic success. Students will take the course the first semester after being placed on probation (with a GPA below 2.0), and they will take it only once. For colleges with higher GPA thresholds for probation, the course will be an optional tool for helping students return to good academic standing.
