Admissions and Standards Committee


Motion on Academic Recognitions

Effective only for the following three terms: Fall 2006, Spring 2007, and Summer 2007

The GPA required to earn the Faculty Scholarship Award will be computed using the GPA stripped of minuses.

Rationale:

The effect of this change is to allow a student to receive this award even if they earned all As and A-s. This parallels the change we made to the requirement that students must have a 2.00 to graduate. It covers the same time period. Note that this motion is retroactive.

Student seeking the Faculty Scholarship Award had the rules changed on them in mid-stream. In addition, it is possible that, given that the plus/minus system is new to Georgia State, students may not be clear about the distinction between an A and an A-. Some leniency in this transition period is appropriate. Note that this motion would be applied retroactively to Fall 2006.
