Further Modification of CSU Admission Standards to
Meet Master Plan Eligibility Goal for First-Time Freshmen
AS-2417-98/AA - May 7-8, 1998
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate of the California State University reaffirm its support for the following standard for achieving eligibility for admission to the CSU for first-time freshmen:
Earning the necessary eligibility index which remains unchanged at 2900 AND
Completion of the required 15-unit college preparatory course pattern with a minimum C grade in each course, OR Completion of 15 units within the college preparatory course pattern with a minimum C grade in each course except that one year may be missing in visual and performing arts or foreign language. This flexibility is subject to ONE of the following conditions:
a. The missing course is made up prior to initial CSU enrollment
b. If the missing course is not completed prior to initial CSU enrollment, it must be completed during the first year of CSU studies; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU recommend that this waiver of requirements apply only to students admitted as first-time freshmen in 1998-99, 1999-2000, and 2000-2001; and be it further
RESOLVED: That the Academic Senate CSU reaffirm its support for annual reviews on the CSU eligibility pool.
RATIONALE: At its meeting of January 22-23, 1998, the Academic Senate of the CSU approved AS-2396-98/AA, Modification of CSU Admission Standards to Meet Master Plan Eligibility Goal for First-Time Freshmen, and some provisions of this resolution have already been implemented. However, the provision of AS-2396-98/AA that regular CSU courses taken to meet admission requirements not be used to meet baccalaureate degree requirements has proven to be unexpectedly difficult to implement. The original resolution also did not provide for a termination date for the waiver.
APPROVED May 7-8, 1998
