Charge

The Academic Standing Subcommittee has the responsibility to review and recommend to the FSCUE as to standards for undergraduate academic standing and honors, standards for the retention of merit-based scholarships and the awarding of new merit-based scholarships to already-matriculated students, the structure and composition of the grading system, and other academic policies and procedures that extend across all undergraduate degree programs.

The Subcommittee absent the student member is defined as the Undergraduate Academic Standing Board and has the following responsibilities:

  1. To exercise the authority given to the FSCUE in the Faculty Handbook (Chapter 2, Article VI, section E) to interpret existing policies and apply existing academic rules to decide cases that involve academic probations, separation, and readmission; to decide cases of the retention of merit-based scholarships and the awarding of new merit-based scholarships to already-matriculated students; and to report its actions to the FSCUE as well as to the appropriate administrative offices;
  2. To review student petitions for exceptions to administrative and academic rules that extend across all undergraduate degree programs.

The Undergraduate Academic Standing Board may delegate the routine application of academic probation criteria, readmission criteria, merit scholarship retention rules, honors criteria, and administrative and academic rules that extend across all undergraduate degree programs to the Dean of Undergraduate Studies, while retaining authority in these matters.
