Biographical/Historical note

The Academic Policies and Procedures Committee is a unit of the University of West Georgia Faculty Senate, starting around the 1970s and still active today. The earliest records for this committee date to 1971. Its members include four members of the Faculty Senate and seven faculty members. The seven faculty members are selected from each of the colleges: College of Science and Mathematics, College of Arts and Humanities, Richards College of Business, College of Education, as well as the School of Nursing and the Library. It is also comprised of three administrators from the Registrar, one appointed by the Provost, and one appointed by the Senior Diversity Officer. There is also one student member, who is appointed by the Student Government Association. That brings the total to 15 members.

Its purpose is to recommend policy and procedures concerning advising, undergraduate admissions, retention, progression and graduation, registration, University calendar, class scheduling, final examination scheduling, testing, advanced placement and other programs regarding dual enrolled students, commencement, and the catalog (including catalog content); to consider undergraduate student petitions for exceptions to academic policy, including graduation requirements, as authorized by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs; and to advise with respect to Admissions, Enrollment Management, Learning Support, Testing, Registrar, Registration and Records. It is recommended that members of this committee also serve as Senate representatives on Non-Senate University committees designated for decision making regarding the above items. The chair of the Academic Policies Committee represens the Senate on the University calendar committee.
