July 29, 1996
We are forwarding the President's Guidelines for Implementation of University Policy on Undergraduate Admissions1 and the University of California Policy on Undergraduate Admissions by Exception in final form. As you know, both documents will replace the existing guidelines and policy and will be effective beginning with students enrolling in the University for the Spring quarter 1998, and for the Fall term 1988 for the Berkeley campus, which is on the semester system. Each campus will develop its own campus-based criteria within the framework of these guidelines, to be reviewed by the President's Office prior to implementation.
Thank you for providing invaluable help in shaping the enclosed documents. Please extend our thanks to those persons on your staff and faculty who have been instrumental in making these new guidelines and policy a reality.
Chair, Academic Council
