Text of May 4, 2000 memorandum to Senate from President Lawrence acknowledging TZ Grade and NG Resolution:

Thank you for forwarding the March 24, 2000 University Senate Resolution on the redefinition of the TZ Grade and on the NG (No Grade Given) option. Please communicate to the members of the Senate that I appreciate their effort in drafting this useful resolution. The grade redefinition that you propose will be implemented for the Fall 2000 semester. The TZ grade will be defined as quoted in the March 24, 2000 resolution to all academic departments receiving grade rosters in November 2000. All computer programs involved with grades will be modified to accept the NG designation in time for the Fall 2000 grade cycle in December.
