Agenda Item No. 5

ADMISIONS POLICY

The following pages contain two documents related to admissions procedures: Series 44 of the State College System Rules and Series 23 of the Higher Education Policy Commission Rules, both entitled Standards and Procedures for Undergraduate Admissions. Also enclosed is a copy of the admissions section of Shepherd's catalog.

Series 44 of the State College System Rules was transferred by the Policy Commission to the authority of the institutional boards of governors, so it is now Shepherd's rule to adjust or change as appropriate. It has, in essence, become a Shepherd College Governing Board policy. In making changes, we must remain consistent with Series 23 of the Higher Education Policy Commission Rules.

The process of reviewing and changing this policy is beginning and the campus has been notified. A formal public comment period will be observed when a working draft is completed in the Spring. No action is required by the Board at this time.
