Cheryl Watson nominated Barry Westcott as Vice-Chair of Academic Standards.  Unanimous second and motion passed.

Discussion of registration and the problem of students registering for many more credits than they intend to keep.  This results in artificially closed courses. 

Mary Anne Nunn suggested that if a student withdrew from a course after the add/drop period and remained full-time, that a W appear on their transcript.  However, if the withdrawal changed the status of the student to part-time, no W would appear. 

Meeting adjourned by unanimous vote at 4:15 pm
