What is the percentage of approvals from the Senate Faculty subcommittee?
Jenn Traubel
40:19
Yay Anna and Kathe!!
JAMEY R PERRY
40:54
I've enjoyed my 17 yrs with Anna
Carolyn Jensen
45:22
In defense of the retro late drop, I have two students working on retro late drop in part because all they have left to graduate is to get above a 2.0 (there are extenuating circumstances and reasons why some classes are appropirate for late drop and the other courses are not). And students do not always act rationally and sometimes are tied by student aid.

In terms of the 50%-70% appeal approval, I imagine if a student can't supply specific requested additional information, they don't bother to appeal.
Karen Del Vecchio
49:13
what is preferred? The submitter contacting Kathy or Anna for the specific guideline to assist for appeal or the student contacting them directly?
Harriett Gaston
52:00
Do you also look to see if there are any advising notes in Starfish about the student and their situation?
Jane Brady
53:01
How much weight is given to the submitter's opinion on the cover sheet?
JAMEY R PERRY
53:37
I screenshot advising notes and attach to petition
Carolyn Jensen
54:52
I would say it is up to the advisor
Carolyn Jensen
55:03
We have the option to NOT support
Carolyn Jensen
55:58
Agreed. We do not put all notes in starfish
VQq8prjgk/ERYZ9XL/ALhA==
58:01
In a situation where a student is submitting a position but our documentation in starfish directly contradicts what the student is saying in their letter... Should we include that documentation as well>?
Harriett Gaston
01:07:19
Would you encourage the student's adviser or an appropriate staff and/or faculty that knows the student to discuss the course in which that student earned a low grade or did not pass to determine if a retroactive late drop petition should occur?
Carolyn Jensen
01:08:40
So, how about the student who is almost out of an academic hole and only needs to be taking classes to get above a 2.0? They have completed all their degree requirements, this is pre-grade forgiveness. Can that be a case for retro late drop
Carolyn Jensen
01:11:08
So what about the university push to help students complete their degree?
Karen Del Vecchio
01:14:06
Imagine how many petitions we would get if it isn't based on Extenuating circumstances??YIKES!
hf9NBJkBwr1cUSUO4QRSSA==
01:17:43
How close are we to having an electronic petition submission process? :)
JEFFREY WARNER
01:22:24
How much does the recommendation weigh on the decision of the reviewers?
JAMEY R PERRY
01:22:36
If we do not feel there are extenuating circumstances does the petition just not get filed or does a student to have an alternate option to be heard?
bkb21
01:24:33
Should the comments come from the adviser or from the "college reviewer" before sending it to the Faculty Senate?
JEFFREY WARNER
01:28:38
If an adviser cannot support the petition, is it in the best interest of the student to find a submitter who will support since in theory, the adviser will need to continue having a professional relationship with the student. If a student can see the comments, it could lead to an ethical dilemma for a submitter who has one opinion but also recognizes that the student has the right to file a petition
sjb176
01:29:06
There seems to be students being referred to the petition process inappropriately by other offices, peers, etc. Students come to Advising stating they were told to “just submit a petition”...in many cases students do not have an extenuating circumstance and a petition is not appropriate or warranted. Is there any educating that has been done or can/will be done across the university to educate students, faculty and staff about the spirit of the petition process?
Deb Dworsky
01:30:57
Who's responsibility is it to determine if a situation is extenuating?
Allison Burns
01:32:52
So it sounds as though it is our responsibility as submitters to send down any and all petitions, even if we personally do not believe there were extenuating circumstances that warrant the request. It is the student's right to submit their request.
KATIE PALANJIAN GAINES
01:34:53
Are the reasons for a denial shared with the student?
KATIE PALANJIAN GAINES
01:38:18
Ok, thank you for explaining.
Harriett Gaston
01:38:47
I never knew that the adviser could contact the sub-committee for more details.
KATIE PALANJIAN GAINES
01:40:47
I agree, those details would be helpful to have right on the website so that all students are aware.
Joanna Maatta
01:48:09
What is the opinion on funeral home letters? These can be easier to obtain than a death cert.
VQq8prjgk/ERYZ9XL/ALhA==
01:48:36
Is there any sort of repercussions for students who are fabricating doctors or family deaths, etc?
dac293
01:57:48
How does a student find a translation service?
Carolyn Jensen
01:58:12
Why is it only advisors from world campus required?
Karen Del Vecchio
02:00:19
Aaron does a FANTASTIC job! Thank you!
Harriett Gaston
02:00:35
Can the IT person determine if the web browser was the problem when the student tried to late drop a course? i.e. Internet Explorer as opposed to Google Chrome or Firefox?
ESTELLE D STROUP
02:03:10
If a student has a temporary change of campus to World Campus (and therefore does not have a World Campus advisor assigned, and are therefore still working with their home campus adviser), do they still need a letter from a World Campus adviser?
Carolyn Jensen
02:07:04
At this point, if information is out of the bag and we do them a disservice by not telling them. It underminds our credibility
Carolyn Jensen
02:07:47
Please clarify that on the checksheets
Jeff Sechler
02:08:28
Carolyn - what would you like clarified?
Harriett Gaston
02:08:56
Due to the new policy on reduction and stay of academically suspended and academically dismissal, I suspect that the giving of checklists will occur more.
Carolyn Jensen
02:09:17
Clarify how the checksheets are to be used. And they should make checksheets for students
Jeff Sechler
02:10:33
I'll get to all these comments and questions in a moment when she finished the slides.
Stephanie Dietrich smd15
02:12:11
What constitutes a trauma petition?
smj103
02:12:28
A checksheet for the student would be extremely helpful.

Thanks, Carolyn!
Harriett Gaston
02:20:08
The petition process website is listed on our campus Registrar's web site, so an academic adviser may show this website to the advisees that they are working with.
Jeff Sechler
02:21:33
I apologize if I missed any questions.
Carolyn Jensen
02:22:09
My problem was with the retroactive administrative course cancellation
JAMEY R PERRY
02:22:42
thanks for the info. very helpful. I look forward to getting the powerpoint and I will be sure to keep internal with my staff.
Carolyn Jensen
02:22:43
Where are the grade change forms
Carolyn Jensen
02:23:06
the new ones?
Carolyn Jensen
02:23:15
Can't hear
Harriett Gaston
02:23:22
I'm having trouble hearing the answers.
Jeff Sechler
02:23:43
a lot of people talking at once in the room. The answer was that the departments have the grade change forms.
Harriett Gaston
02:24:03
Thanks.
Carolyn Jensen
02:24:06
Thanks, Jeff
Jeff Sechler
02:24:23
Thanks everyone. The recording will be on the noon seminar page in the next few days.
