The Board of Regents directs the University of Wisconsin System Administration to:

  1. Monitor course drop rates at all University of Wisconsin System Institutions.
  2. Require all University of Wisconsin System Institutions to reduce or maintain course drop rates during any academic year at no more than five percent of credit hours registered at the close of the tenth day of classes at the beginning of the fall and spring terms.
  3. Effective in the fall of 1989, direct all University of Wisconsin System Institutions whose drop rates exceed five percent to develop and implement plans to reduce the drop rate to five percent or less. Such plans will be subject to the review and approval of System Administration.
  4. Report to the Board of Regents annually on the drop rates of each Institution.
