Title 5 Regulations on Enrollment Priorities - Sep. 10, 2012
At this morning's Board of Governors (BOG) meeting in San Diego, the Board unanimously adopted the proposed Title 5 regulations on Enrollment Priorities. It is expected that they will go into effect for the Fall 2014 semester, with lots of work at the colleges before then (e.g., programming or re-programming your registration system in line with the new requirements; advance notification to students that the new requirements will be in place, and their implications; detailing the appeal process you will use to handle student requests to set aside the loss of priority enrollment and BOGW status; determination of what constitutes an education plan for purposes of new or continuing students having access to priority registration; development of intervention strategies for students who appear to be headed into academic-status trouble; and so forth).
All these implementation issues will be discussed at the CSSO drive-ins on October 12 at the Madera Center and Skyline College and, I suspect, at the CSSO Institute (conference) next March. And beyond.
Attached are the CSSO Executive Board’s written statement to the Board of Governors and my talking points (not verbatim) for my three-minute-limit verbal statements at this morning’s BOG meeting. I spoke in place of our CSSO President, Dennis Bailey, who could not be in San Diego for today’s meeting.
I trust the official version of the new regulations will be sent out to us soon by Chancellor’s Office staff now that the Board has adopted them. If you haven’t already done so, read them carefully and begin to think in great detail how your college or district will implement them.
Any questions in the meantime, please let me know.
