Meeting Notes Tuesday, March 12, 2013 - Student Success and Support Programs Committee

In attendance: Jennifer Harper, Wayne Takakuwa and Jesse MacEwan.

Orientation Blocks

  • Went over Gillian's data
  • Need to serve approximately 1500-1800 new students for fall
  • Will exempt ND.PERS students as well as students who already have a degree
  • Jesse will look into using Blackboard to do an on-line version of orientation that will have a quiz/appropriate score in order to clear the orientation hold
  • Students who don't pass online orientation (or who choose not to do the on-line version) will come in-person
  • We may have more "freshman days" in to accommodate influx of new students in August
  • Jesse/Wayne will model new combined orientation/assessment this June and report back
  • Jesse will try and get WebAdvisor usage data to help clarify peak times for new students

Registration Priorities

  • We made a 2nd draft of the registration priorities document based on Ron's feedback and further discussion (see attached)
  • We'd like help/review the notification admissions will send to these students at our April 2nd meeting
  • Notification should go out in early April
