ADMISSIONS COMMITTEE


The Admissions Committee held four meetings during the 2002-2003 academic year. The actions taken included:
 


Recommending a Policy of Admission to President Lambert

The committee presented substantially the same policy for admissions that had been followed the previous year. The target freshman class size was set for 1150-1175. The number of transitional students admitted was reduced from 50 to 25 and the minimum grade point average of transfer applicants was raised from 2.0 to 2.5. The President reviewed the committee recommendations and approved the Policy for Admission governing admissions for the 2003-2004 academic year.

Admissions Committee Statement of Policy for Faculty and Staff Handbooks

Most of the Committee?s time was spent discussing the Admissions Policy for Faculty and Staff Dependents at the request of Academic Council. After several revisions and flurries of e-mail the Committee submitted the following revisions to the Faculty and Staff Handbooks. We discussed how we should inform the current faculty and staff of these revisions and recommended that the Academic Council take that into consideration.
