GENERAL INFORMATION
GENERAL INFORMATION
History
Metropolitan State College was founded by an act passed by the Colorado Legislature in 1963, placing it under the control and management of the Trustees of the State Colleges in Colorado. The first classes of the lower division academic program were held in the fall of 1965, followed by the addition of junior courses in the fall of 1967, and senior courses in the fall of 1968.
The College is authorized to offer the degrees of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Science, Associate in Arts and Associate in Science.
Goals
The enacting legislation for Metropolitan State College sets forth its general purpose: To serve the needs for higher education in the Denver metropolitan area, as well as to serve the needs for higher education in the State of Colorado generally. To perform this mission, the College is directed to be a multi-purpose, urban-oriented institution with comprehensive programs in the arts and sciences, career, technical and professional fields.
It is the policy of Metropolitan State College to provide equal educational and employment opportunities for all regardless of race, color, creed, age, sex or national origin. The various academic programs, services, and administrative processes of the College are committed to achieving these goals.
Accreditation
Metropolitan State College is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools. The
teacher certification program is accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.
Student Body
The majority of the students are residents of the five-county Denver metropolitan area and are actively involved in the social, cultural and economic affairs of the metropolis. The majority of this commuter student body work and the average age is just over 26 years. Student enrollment during fall quarter 1973 was slightly in excess of 9,400 ranking Metropolitan State College among the five largest State-supported institutions in Colorado.
Facilities
Located in the central part of the metropolitan area, the College is temporarily housed in twenty leased buildings adjacent to Denvers Civic Center. Administrative and service offices are located at 250 West 14th Avenue. Metropolitan State College takes advantage of its urban setting by drawing upon available community resources and by involving faculty and students in the social, cultural and economic affairs of the metropolis.
New Campus
Construction has started on a new campus for the College which is located in downtown Denver. Metropolitan State College will be one of the three institutions included in the Auraria Higher Education Center. It is anticipated that the College will move into the new facilities for the fall quarter of 1976.

ADMISSION
ADMISSION
Metropolitan State College is dedicated to the philosophy that educational opportunities should be provided for all who have the will and ability to benefit from the instruction it has to offer.
ADMISSION INSTRUCTIONS
Applications for admission are considered in the order in which they are received each quarter. Therefore, applications should be submitted at the earliest possible date after completion of the first semester of the senior year in high school. Applications for admission must be received at the College not later than four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought for guaranteed processing. All credentials should be on file in the Office of Admissions and Records not later than four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought. All credentials which are submitted become the property of Metropolitan State College and will not be returned to the student.
ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS AND PROCEDURES
Admission of Freshmen
(Applicants who have not attended college):
To be eligible for admission, students must have graduated from an approved high school. Other factors considered are intelligence, personality, character and comments by secondary school officials. Persons who are not high school graduates will be considered on an individual basis after submitting certified scores on the standard General Education Development test which show they have the ability to satisfactorily pursue programs of instruction which the College offers.
High school students may apply for admission and register while concurrently completing high school graduation requirements through the high school. Students must have prior consent from the high school, their guardian and Metropolitan State College. Students must be awarded the high school diploma before college credits are validated.
Applicants who are not residents of the State must meet the same admission requirements as Colorado residents.
1. Obtain the uniform Application for Admission'form used by Colorado collegiate institutions from a Colorado secondary school or from the Metropolitan State Col-
lege Office of Admissions and Records, 250 West 14th Avenue, Denver, Colorado 80204.
2. This form should be completed and submitted along with the application fee directly to the Office of Admissions. To insure processing, the application must be received at least four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought. All credentials should be on file in the Office of Admissions and Records not later than four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought. It is the students responsibility to insure that the high school transcript is submitted to the Metropolitan State College Office of Admissions in time to meet processing dates.
3. A $10.00 application fee, which is non-refundable and will not apply toward tuition, must be sent with the application for admission. The application fee must be received or waived before the application can be considered.
4. Upon receipt of the above credentials, and after an evaluation has been made, the applicant will be informed of his admission status.
Admission Through ACT
Although the ACT is not required for admission, high school students are encouraged to take the ACT to provide a basis for advising and counseling. If the student takes the ACT and indicates Metropolitan State College as one of his first three choices to receive the ACT profile report, the following admission procedure will apply:
1. A letter will be sent to the student stating that he has been tentatively accepted at Metropolitan State College based on the ACT profile report.
2. The student need only submit a $5.00 application fee (instead of the usual $10.00 fee) to confirm his acceptance.
3. The ACT profile report will be used in lieu of a formal application.
4. The student need submit only one high school transcript (following graduation) with the date the diploma was awarded. It is the students responsibility to insure that the high school transcript is submitted to Metropolitan State College Office of Admissions in time to meet guaranteed processing dates.
7


ADMISSION
Admission of Transfer Students
(Applicants who have attended a college or university):
To be eligible for admission as a transfer student from other accredited colleges or universities, an official transcript from each institution attended must be submitted. Transfer applicants are expected to present an overall average of C (2.00 based on a four-point system where an A grade is 4 points) on all college work previously attempted and must be in good standing and eligible to return to the last college or university attended. Students who do not meet these standards are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions for individual consideration. Failure to report correctly any previous college or university record may result in loss of credit and/or dismissal.
1. Request an application for admission form from Metropolitan State College Office of Admissions.
2. Complete the application for admission and return it to the Office of Admissions. To insure processing, the application must be mailed so that it will reach the college at least four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought.
3. A $10.00 application fee, which is non-refundable and will not apply toward tuition, must be sent with the application for admission. The fee must be received or waived before the application can be considered.
4. Request that one official transcript from each college or university attended be forwarded to the Office of Admissions at Metropolitan State College. Although an applicants record from several institutions may be summarized on one transcript, an application will not be considered until official transcripts from each college attended are received. These are required even though no credit may have been earned at an institution.
Transfer credits are normally accepted if they meet the following conditions:
(a) Grades earned must be A, B, C or equivalent. Grades of D, F and similarly graded courses will not transfer.
(b) Course content should be similar to those courses offered at Metropolitan State College.
5. A high school transcript is requested when:
(a) The college transcripts do not give complete information about the applicants high school record.
(b) The applicant has less than 45 quarter hours or 30 semester hours of transferable college credits.
Admission of Previously Enrolled Students
(Former students who have not been in attendance at Metropolitan State College for one or more quarters excluding summer quarter):
1. Request an application for readmission from the Office of Admissions.
2. Complete the application for readmission and return it to the Office of Admissions. To insure processing, the application should be received at least four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought.
3. No application fee is required.
4. An applicant who has attended another collegiate institution since last enrollment at MSC must request one official transcript be forwarded to the Office of Admissions so that it will be received at least four weeks prior to the beginning of the quarter for which admission is sought. This is the only situation in which a transcript is necessary for the admission of previously enrolled students.
ORIENTATION
New Student Orientation is a required program designed to assist all new and transfer students in becoming part of the College life. The program is planned to give each student personal attention through small group discussions which acquaint them with the College, its programs, activities and facilities. During this time, students have the opportunity to meet members of the College administration, faculty and student association. Invitation to the orientation program will be sent prior to registration.

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS
STUDENT FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS
Metropolitan State College is dedicated to providing equal access to higher education to all persons qualified for admission who have the will and ability to benefit from the instruction offered. Charges to students are low because a considerable portion of the cost of operation is paid from Colorado tax revenues.
The Office of Student Financial Aid provides assistance for students who need additional finances to attend the College. This aid is available through the National Direct Student Loan Program, the Basic Educational Opportunity Grant Program, the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, the Colorado State Grant Program, as well as the College Work-Study. Colorado Work-Study, Nursing Loan, Nursing Scholarship Programs, and Law Enforcement Education Program.
The Office of Student Financial Aid requires the American College Testing Programs Family Financial Statement (FFS) to determine the degree of need. This form is designed to identify the resources of both the student and his parents. The Family Financial Statement meets federal requirements. Use of this form means that all student needs are evaluated on the same criteria, although both the FFS and the Office of Student Financial Aid take into consideration individual circumstances.
APPLICATION PROCEDURE
The following forms are required from those requesting financial assistance:
Freshmen
These forms, which may be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Aid or local high schools, must be submitted before consideration can be given.

classes ..........................100%
Upon withdrawal or quarter hour reduction from fourth day through tenth day of classes................ 75%
No refund will be made after the first 10 days of classes. Refunds will be mailed to students approximately 4 weeks after the time of withdrawal or load reduction. All refunds are less any indebtedness to the College.
Residence Qualifications
A student is classified as an in-State or out-of-State registrant for tuition purposes at the time he is granted admission. The classification is based upon information furnished by the student and other pertinent evidence. Once determined, the residency status is changed only on the basis of conclusive evidence submitted by written petition to the Director of Admissions and Records.
Residency classification of students under 21 years of age is determined by the residence of their parents. Students 21 years of age or over are classified by, (a) adoption of the State as a fixed and permanent home, and involves personal presence within the State at the time of such adoption, together with the intention of making Colorado the true home; and (b) living within the State for at least 12 consecutive months prior to enrollment. Any question requiring clarification of resident status should be resolved with the Office of Admissions prior to registration.
All students taking 6 or fewer quarter hours per quarter are considered as having resident or in-State status for tuition and fee purposes.

ACADEMIC INFORMATION
ACADEMIC INFORMATION
The College operates on the quarter system with each quarter Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer consisting of approximately ten weeks of instruction. Classes are scheduled during the day and in the evening in order to accommodate people who are employed. Enrollment can be on a full-time or part-time basis and can be for the purpose of pursuing a baccalaureate or associate degree, improving vocational or professional competence, or learning about particular areas of interest for cultural or intellectual reasons.
Admission and Registration
Students who have not previously attended Metropolitan State College should review the schools admission requirements. Students must be accepted for admission in order to be eligible to register for degree programs.
All continuing students in good standing at Metropolitan State College are eligible to register each quarter. A continuing student is one who was enrolled during the quarter preceding the one for which he wishes to register. Attendance during the Summer Quarter is not required and a student enrolled during the Spring Quarter may enroll as a continuing student during the Fall Quarter.
Students who have been enrolled for at least one quarter, but not during the preceding quarter, are eligible to register providing they submit an application for readmission prior to registration. To insure processing, applications should be received four weeks prior to registration.
Registration for classes occurs during an Advance Registration Period, about the seventh week of the quarter and during regular registration, two days preceding the beginning of the quarter. Information about registration schedules and procedures will be sent to all new students. See College Calendar for registration dates during 1974-1975.
Quarter Hours Credit
Course credit is based on units designated quarter hours. One quarter hour represents one class period of sixty minutes per week and normally about two hours per week of preparation outside of class by the student. Laboratory courses give one quarter hour of credit for each two or three hours of scheduled work in the laboratory during a week.
Course Load
The normal load per quarter is 15 or 16 quarter hours. Students who are academically strong may take up to 18 quarter hours with the approval of their faculty advisor. Total quarter hours undertaken may not exceed 18 unless approved by both the advisor and the Counseling Center. The maximum permitted with such authorization is 21 hours per quarter.
Course Numbers,
Descriptions and Offerings
Before starting registration, students should study the list of courses for information on the level of instruction, credit, course sequence, contents and prerequisites.
The first digit in a course number designates the level of instruction. Only courses numbered 100 or above will be included in credits toward a degree. Courses with numbers up to and including 199 are primarily for freshmen, 200 through 299 primarily for sophomores, 300 through 399 primarily for juniors and 400 through 499 primarily for seniors. Although normally a student should not take courses above the level of his class (based on quarter hours earned), he may do so at one level above if he has the specified prerequisites. In special cases a student may be permitted to take courses more than one level above that designated for his class, if in addition to meeting the requirements for prerequisites he obtains the permission of his advisor and of the faculty member teaching the course.
After each course number is a figure specifying the quarter hours of credit. As an example, English 101-4 is a four credit course. Following the course title is a second set of numbers in parenthesis indicating the division of time between lecture and laboratory. The first number in parenthesis indicates the number of lecture or discussion hours and the second number indicates the number of laboratory, shop or field hours. For example, in a science course followed by (3+4), the numbers indicate 3 hours of lecture and 4 hours of laboratory.
Course descriptions provide a summary of the material which is covered. If there is a prerequisite which must be met before a student will be permitted to register for the course, this information is listed at the end of the course description.
A list of all courses, instructors, class meeting times and locations is published in the Class Schedule which is printed well in
16


ACADEMIC INFORMATION
advance of the beginning of each quarter and is available to all students.
Decisions on which of the courses listed in this catalog are taught during the year will be based on predictions of student demand and the amount of funds available.
Cross Registration with MSC,
Community College of Denver, and/or University of Colorado at Denver
Students enrolled for at least one course at Metropolitan State College may register for courses during the enrolled quarter at the Community College of Denver and/or the University of Colorado-Denver. Courses taken at the Community College of Denver or the University of Colorado at Denver in no way alter existing Metropolitan State College degree requirements.
Information concerning current procedures for enrolling for courses at these other institutions is available from the Registrars Office.
Concurrent Enrollment
Students who find it necessary to be registered at Metropolitan State College and another college at the same time must obtain a letter of permission from the registrar of each institution. Students concurrently enrolled are affected by the academic policies of the home institution.
Changes in Registration
Students may adjust schedules by dropping and/or adding classes during the first five days of each quarter. Students may not initiate registration after the fifth day of classes. Students may not add a class to their schedule after the fifth day of classes, unless they have permission of the dean of the school or center in which the class is being offered.
Students may drop or withdraw from a class at any time during the first two weeks of classes without grade' penalty by submitting a change card to the Registrars Office. After the second week, students dropping a class must make arrangements with the instructor concerning the grade that will be submitted at the end of the quarter. See the paragraph on grades in this section.
Class Attendance
Students are expected to attend all sessions of courses for which they are registered. Each instructor determines when a students absences have reached a point that they jeopardize his success in a course. When absences become excessive, the student may receive a failing grade for the course.
If a student anticipates a prolonged ab-
sence because of illness, he should contact his instructors, if possible. If he finds that he cannot do this, he should contact the Dean of Students who will inform his instructors of the reasons for the anticipated absence.
Whenever an instructor feels that a students absences are interfering with his academic progress, he may submit a letter to the Dean of Students informing him of the situation.
Written excuses are not issued for shortterm illnesses or other brief periods of absence from class. In such cases determination of the validity of the students absence and decisions on whether he will be allowed to make up work missed rests with his instructors.
Adaptive Self-Paced Learning
Adaptive Self-Paced Learning is a phrase used to describe classes in which the student is allowed to proceed at a pace that is suited to his personal learning needs and learning style. Students may proceed rapidly, finishing a course well in advance of the end of a quarter, with the advantage of being able to begin new studies or to concentrate on other courses. Students may proceed slowly, extending the learning beyond the end of a quarter, or even two if necessary, without time limitations that might interfere with the mastery of each required skill.
This personalized system of learning relies heavily on learning aids and media so that tutors, student proctors, and faculty are free to devote additional time to individualized instruction and assistance.
Self-paced courses are identified in the class schedule by the letters SP. Information on the method of instruction and the nature of the program is available in each department. Self-paced courses are optional and are open to all.
Examinations in Lieu of Course Requirements
Successful completion of special examinations may be substituted for the completion of course requirements, may permit placement of students in advanced courses, or may be used as the basis for awarding of college credit. Several different types of examinations are described below. A student may not earn more than a total of 90 quarter hours of credit toward degree requirements regardless of the type of examination for which credit is or has been earned.
1. Course Examinations
A department may grant a student credit toward graduation for college courses in
17


ACADEMIC INFORMATION
which he requests and passes special college examinations. Under this provision a maximum of 45 quarter hours of credit may be obtained. A fee of $10.00 per course will be charged for each examination.
Examinations for credit must be based on work equivalent to a course offered by the college, and the credit granted will be for the corresponding course, provided it is unduplicated in, and applicable toward, the students curriculum. Evidence of work justifying an examination for credit must be presented to the department chairman, no later than the first week of classes in a quarter. Permission for such examination must be secured in advance from the appropriate dean upon recommendation of the department chairman. Examination for credit will be taken during the first four weeks of classes in a quarter at a time specified by the department but after the special examination fee has been paid. No examination for credit in a college course may be repeated. A grade equivalent to 2.5 grade points or higher must be attained on the examination in order to receive credit, but credits so earned for the course will be recorded without grade reference on the students permanent record. No record of failures on such examinations will be entered on the students permanent record. Grades in courses for which credit is earned by examination are not considered in computing college grade point averages.
No application for credit by examination will be approved for a student who is not currently enrolled in good standing in a degree-seeking curriculum in the College, or, having been in residence, is within 15 credit hours of completing degree requirements. No credit by examination can be obtained for college courses attended as a listener or visitor or auditor. It cannot be taken by students having received credit for more than one quarter of work in the subject in advance of the course in which the examination is to be taken. It cannot be taken to raise grades or to remove failures. It is not considered as interrupting residence, nor applicable toward residence requirements. Credits by examination will be posted on the students permanent record after completion of 12 quarter hours of classroom credit.
2. Attainment Examinations
Any student may take attainment examinations in certain departments for the purpose of waiving specific graduation requirements. Passing such an examination, although not reducing the number of credits required for graduation, entitles the student to substi-
tute a subject of his own choice for the required subject. The examination is approximately the equivalent of the final examination in the course.
3. College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The College Entrance Examination Board has developed a series of examinations designed to evaluate nontraditional college-level education, specifically including independent study and correspondence work, and to award credit for successful demonstration of this knowledge. This series of examinations, known as the College Level Examination Program (CLEP), consists of five separate examinations covering the areas of English, mathematics, humanities, natural science and social science-history. Based on results of these examinations, the College may award up to a maximum of 45 quarter hours credit, covering the freshman basic studies requirements. Thus, the successful student may test out of most of the traditional courses required during the freshman year. Interested students should contact the Office of Counseling and Testing for complete information about this program before registration.
CLEP policies and procedures are being revised. The student is advised to contact the Counseling and Testing Center for information about the current regulations.
4. Advanced Placement
Students who have performed satisfactorily in special college-level courses while in high school, and who have passed appropriate Advanced Placement Examinations conducted by the College Entrance Examination Board, may submit the results to the office of Admissions and Records for consideration for college credit. This office, in consultation with the appropriate department chairman, determines the amount and nature of the credit and/or advanced placement granted.
Final Examinations
It is the general policy of the College to require final examinations of all students in all courses in which they are registered for credit, except in the case of seminar courses or special projects.
Grades
Alphabetical grades and status symbols are used as follows:
A Superior 4 quality points per quarter hour attempted
18


ACADEMIC INFORMATION
B Above Average 3 quality points per quarter hour attempted C Average 2 quality points per quarter hour attempted
D Below Average but passing 1 quality point per quarter hour attempted F Failure 0 quality points per quarter hour attempted NC No Credit IP In Progress P Pass
The no credit (NC) notation may indicate withdrawal from the course, a request at registration for no credit, or may be assigned when a student was unable to take the final examination and/or did not complete all of his out-of-class assignments due to unusual circumstances such as hospitalization. The notation has no effect on the grade point average.
The in progress (IP) notation indicates that the student and/or the faculty have decided to extend the students exposure to the course in order to increase his proficiency. The student must register for the course in a subsequent quarter in order to earn credit. The notation has no effect on the grade point average. Use of IP is limited to skill or foundation-type courses.
A student receiving a final grade of F may secure credit for the course by repeating it with a passing grade. Full tuition and fees will be charged for each registration.
Pass-Fail Option
The pass-fail option encourages the student to venture out of his major and minor fields and thereby broadens his educational experience. The pass grade has no effect on the grade point average; the fail grade is equivalent to the grade of F.
Students with 45 quarter hours of transcript credit, or more, and with at least a 2.00 grade point average, may enroll for pass or fail rather than letter-grade credit recording. Courses in the students major and minor fields, teacher education courses required for certification and required basic studies courses are specifically excluded from this option. Maximum graduation credit for these ungraded courses is 27 credit hours, earned in no more than nine courses, limited to one course per quarter.
A student must declare interest in the pass-fail option no later than his registration by contacting the College Registrar. The instructor will assign and record the pass-fail grade for the course on a final grade list
which identifies students electing and eligible for pass-fail grading. If the student exercises the option and later is declared ineligible, he receives notification from the Office of Admissions and Records during the quarter that he will receive letter-grade recording in the course.
Some institutions do not accept credits for courses in which a pass grade is given under policies stated above. Therefore, students who plan to transfer or take graduate work may wish to ascertain in advance of registering for courses under the pass-fail option whether the institution of their choice will accept credits for courses in which they receive a pass grade.
Quality Points
The number of quality points awarded for a course is determined by multiplying the number of credit hours for that course by the quality point value of the grade received. The cumulative grade point average is calculated by dividing the total number of quality points accumulated by the total number of credit hours attempted.
To be eligible for a degree, a candidate must, in addition to meeting other prescribed requirements, have a minimum number of quality points equal to twice the number of credit hours earned. Grades earned in skill reinforcement courses are not considered in computing grade point averages.
Request for Change in Grade
If a student has a reason to question the validity of a grade received in a course, he must make his request for a qhange before the end of the third week of the quarter following the completion of the course the following fall quarter in the case of the preceding spring quarter.
Requests for reconsideration of awarded grades should be made directly to the instructor. Should no resolution be possible between the student and instructor, the matter may be appealed to the department chairman and then to the dean. That failing, the student may appeal his case in writing to the Academic Standards Committee.
Academic Suspension Policy
In keeping with the goals and objectives of Metropolitan State College, a probation-suspension policy has been adopted which allows most students three quarters to adjust to the academic requirements of college. The policy further provides for the suspension of those students who are not prepared for successful college work.
19


ACADEMIC INFORMATION
A cumulative grade point average of C (2.00) or better indicates satisfactory progress toward a degree. A cumulative grade point average of less than C indicates unsatisfactory progress and will result in a warning, probation or suspension.
A student is expected to maintain a C average to qualify for graduation. When a student falls below a C average and becomes deficient in quality points, he will be placed on warning subject to decreasing this deficiency each quarter until satisfactory progress is indicated.
A student in a warning status will be contacted by his major department or the Academic Advising Center. It is especially important that students contact the major advisor or, if undecided, the Academic Advising Center immediately following notification of warning status.
Since Metropolitan State College recognizes each student has different strengths and weaknesses which are not totally identified by a grade point average, either of these offices may make recommendations con-
cerning a students retention even though the grade point average may be somewhat below satisfactory. The College, therefore, strongly urges every student placed on warning status to contact either his major advisor or the Academic Advising Center.
Students failing to reduce the quality point deficiency after having been placed on warning will be subject to review by the appropriate subcommittee of the Academic Standards Committee for possible suspension due to unacceptable academic progress. If the student is re-admitted, he will be required to reduce his deficiency each quarter until satisfactory progress is achieved.
A student who has been admitted on probation will have his probationary status removed when he has attempted a minimum of 12 quarter hours and maintained at least a C average, or the GPA stipulated at the time of admission, for all course work attempted at Metropolitan State College. A student admitted on probation will be reviewed for possible suspension when his cumulative average falls below C, regard-
20


ACADEMIC INFORMATION
less of the number of hours attempted. After removal from probation, the student will be subject to the standard warning-suspension policy outlined above.
Upon completion of the stipulated suspension period, a student may apply for reinstatement through the Academic Standards Committee. No student may re-enter after academic suspension without the written approval of the Academic Standards Committee.
Student Classification
Students are classified according to the number of quarter hours of credit earned: freshmen fewer than 45; sophomores 45 or more but fewer than 90; juniors 90 or more but fewer than 135; seniors 135 or more.
Honors and Awards
Metropolitan State College annually recognizes students who show outstanding leadership and service to the college community, excellence in scholastic achievement, and outstanding personal character and integrity.
The Presidents Award is given to one junior or senior who has excelled in both academics and service to the college.
The Deans Award is given to one Associate Degree student who has exhibited superior scholastic ability, personal integrity and campus leadership.
Outstanding Student Awards are presented to approximately fifteen students each year on the basis of scholastic ability, personal integrity and campus leadership.
Junior and senior students receiving the above awards are among those selected for publication in Whos Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
In addition to annual awards, students with outstanding academic achievements are recognized each spring by being named to Metropolitan State College Honor Lists.
The Presidents Honor List carries the names of students who have attempted at least 45 hours and, at the time of the computation (end of Spring Quarter), have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.85 or higher.
The Deans Honor List carries the names of students who have attempted at least 45 hours and, at the time of computation (end of Spring Quarter), have achieved a cumulative grade point average of between 3.50 and 3.85.
Part-time students are eligible for either of the above honors. The time of computation will occur first when they have completed between 45 and 90 hours, second when they have completed between 91 and 135 hours, and finally when they have completed more than 136 hours.
Graduation honors are awarded to students who have demonstrated superior academic ability while attending Metropolitan State College. Graduation Summa Cum Laude is awarded to students who achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.75 to 4.0. Graduation Magna Cum Laude is awarded to students who achieve a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 to 3.74.
To be eligible for graduation honors, a student must have completed 75 quarter hours at Metropolitan State College prior to the quarter when he is due to graduate. Students who have transferred to Metropolitan State College and who have completed less than 75 quarter hours prior to graduation may petition for honors provided their total GPA for all collegiate institutions attended and their GPA at Metropolitan State College are equal to the requirements stated above.

OMNIBUS COURSES
OMNIBUS COURSES
Purposes of the omnibus courses listed below are to provide opportunities for meeting developing needs by offering courses on an experimental basis which deal with selected topics, seminars and workshops on various subjects and problems; independent study so that students may investigate problems of special interest; and supervised field or internship experiences conducted cooperatively with a business, industry, governmental agency or other organization.

PROGRAMS OF STUDY AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
PROGRAMS OF STUDY AND DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
The student is responsible for full knowledge of the information provided in this catalog concerning regulations and requirements of the College and his or her program of study.
The instructional program has been organized so that students may work toward one or more of the following objectives: (1) earning an associate degree in applied sciences in two years; (2) following a curriculum in arts, sciences or applied sciences to meet requirements for bachelor of arts or science degree; (3) taking vocational-technical programs, which may or may not involve being a degree candidate, to prepare for careers in fields such as business, health services, public services and technology; or (4) enrolling for selected courses to improve their general education or vocational competency.
Requirements for All Degrees
To earn a degree, a student must satisfy the course and other requirements for the curriculum under which he is registered and must complete the minimum number of quarter hours for each degree 90 for the associate and 180 for the baccalaureate with a cumulative average of 2.00 or higher.
A student must satisfy all of the requirements stated in a single catalog in effect during the time of his enrollment. The catalog used to determine compliance with graduation requirements may not be more than eight years old for a baccalaureate degree or four years old for an associate degree.
While every effort will be made to provide each student appropriate advice in meeting requirements for graduation and for majors and minors, the final responsibility for meeting these rests with the student. Consequently, he is responsible for full knowledge of the provisions and regulations pertaining to his program, and should seek advice when in doubt. The student should never assume that he has approval to deviate from the stated requirements unless he possesses a properly signed statement to that effect.
Transfer students should become particularly aware of the requirements of the College, the basic studies, and their major (or area of emphasis) and minor areas.
Graduation Evaluation Agreement
The graduation evaluation process is initiated when the student completes the Graduation Agreement. Once the student has received program approval from the
major (or area of emphasis) department chairman and the minor department chairman, the student submits his Agreement to the Office of Admissions and Records for final review. After the completion of each subsequent quarter of academic work, the student will receive a Graduation Status Report.
The deadline for submitting the Graduation Agreement is the end of the first week of the quarter in which the student is eligible to graduate. However, since the student is ultimately responsible for the success or failure of his program of study, it is advisable to begin the graduation evaluation process at least three quarters or earlier in advance of the quarter of graduation. A Graduation Agreement submitted after the deadline will be reviewed for the following graduation date.
After submitting the Graduation Agreement, a student who feels justified in deviating from college academic requirements may appeal to the Academic Standards Committee for such a change. Petition forms may be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. Valid reasons supported by the appropriate department chairman must accompany all petitions. The nullification of the physical education requirement for graduation is retroactive. The requirements of residency and minimum quarter hours to be completed between the granting of two degrees are retroactive.
Diplomas are granted at the conclusion of each of the four quarters for those students who have met all requirements for graduation. Formal commencement ceremonies are held at the conclusion of the Spring and Summer Quarters. Participation in the graduation exercises is not mandatory, but students may elect to participate in either of the programs that are held following their completion of requirements.
Requirements for All Associate Degrees
To earn an Associate in Applied Sciences, a student must satisfy the following requirements, plus any other stipulated for the degree for which a student is a candidate.
1. Complete 90 quarter hours with a cumulative average of 2.00 or higher.
2. Complete a minimum of 30 quarter hours at Metropolitan State College with the last 15 quarter hours applicable to the Associate Degree.
3. Meet the basic studies minimum requirements listed below and earn a mini-

Such a student should be familiar with rules of the institution concerned regarding transfer of credit and courses required under the curriculum in which he intends to major and complete requirements for a baccalaureate or other degree. With regard to Colorado institutions of higher education, the office of the Dean of Students has information on recommended programs for students planning to transfer, and advisors will assist them in developing a course plan.
Requirements for All Bachelor Degrees
To earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, a student must satisfy the following requirements, plus any others stipulated for the degree for which a student is a candidate.
1. Complete 180 quarter hours with a cumulative average of 2.00 or higher for all Metropolitan State College work.
2. Complete a minimum of 45 quarter hours at Metropolitan State College', including the last 15 quarter hours applicable to the degree.
3. Complete at last 60 quarter hours in upper division courses; i.e., junior and senior level.
4. Complete one subject major consisting of not less than 45 nor generally not more than 60 quarter hours and at least one minor consisting of at least 27 quarter hours. In the event of a double major, the second major satisfies the requirement for a minor.
Exceptions to the minor requirement have been approved for students majoring in music, art or in any of the areas of business.
Course requirements for state certification of elementary school teachers in Colorado will satisfy the major/minor requirements for a bachelors degree.
Candidates for either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree are required to meet the basic studies minimums listed below in addition to satisfying all other requirements for a bachelors degree stipulated earlier in this catalog. Since the purpose of the basic studies program is to help students develop understanding and an appreciation of broad fields of basic knowledge, a degree candidate must complete the two-quarter sequence in basic communication and 15 quarter hours of courses in each of the groupings listed below. Not more than 10 quarter hours taken in any one of the departments listed under Humanities, Science and Mathematics, or Social Sciences and/or Behavioral Sciences, will count toward basic studies requirements.

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE
ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY
The engineering technologist program provides students with the opportunity to receive a Bachelor of Science degree with majors in civil, electronics, mechanical, meteorology, or surveying. In addition, the student may combine business with technology and receive a Bachelor of Science degree in technical management or industrial marketing.
These programs provide students with greater breadth and depth than is possible in the two-year associate degree programs. Upper division courses are available to those students who, after earning an associate degree and after being employed as a technician, desire to obtain a baccalaureate degree. The four-year trained technologist fills the gap created by increased emphasis upon the development of scientifically oriented engineers. New developments in the more efficient utilization of engineering manpower have created a large demand for the technologist. The four-year baccalaureate programs are designed to prepare students for greater technical and managerial responsibilities. Graduates become vital members on technical engineering application teams.
The following four-year engineering technology programs are built upon the concept of two plus two. The first two years, containing a balance of specialization, basic studies and electives, are designed to prepare a student for entry into industry as a technician. The second two years also contain a balance of basic studies and electives, as well as specialization in depth and cross training in related technical and business programs.
In order to be awarded the Bachelor of Science degree, the student must conform to the colleges general specifications for the bachelors degree including 60 hours of upper division courses.
The first two years of the program taken at Metropolitan State College or at a community/junior college should include the following:

SCHOOL OF LIBERAL ARTS
MUSIC
The music program provides opportunities (1) for students to prepare for careers in music teaching or performance, and (2) for students majoring in other fields to enhance their appreciation and enjoyment of music and to participate in group music activities or obtain individual instruction in voice, keyboard or instrumental music. Two degree programs are offered in the Department of Music: Bachelor of Arts in Music Education; and Bachelor of Arts in Applied Music.
The applied music program (individual instruction) at Metropolitan State College is entirely self-paced. The student may advance through the program at his own rate, independent of the fixed-paced quarter system. The student whose rate of development is faster than the normal ten-week quarter may, upon completion of the requirements for a particular applied music level, immediately begin the next level. The student whose rate of development is slower than the normal ten-week quarter may re-enroll the following quarter to continue working toward completion of the course. A maximum of three enrollments is permitted in a particular applied music level.
Applied Jury Requirement
All students enrolled in applied music numbers 163, 263, or 363 are required to perform for fifteen minutes before a faculty jury committee at the end of the quarter before being allowed to enroll in the subsequent level. Failure to do so at the end of the third quarter of enrollment in one of these levels will automatically result in the grade F or NC. The Junior recital fulfills the 363 jury requirement.
An accelerated student who is ready to perform a jury examination before the end of a quarter must wait until the regularly scheduled time for juries at the end of the quarter. However, he may begin work on the subsequent level with the understanding that credit for this work is contingent upon successful completion of the jury requirement.
Specific requirements for juries in each of the areas of keyboard, voice, strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion are available from the Music Department.
Applied music may be taken for one quarter hour of credit (the requirements of which includes one half-hour lesson and a minimum of six hours of practice per week) or two quarter hours of credit (including a one-hour lesson and requiring a minimum of
twelve hours of practice per week). Students taking applied music as a part of their degree requirements are not charged an applied music lesson fee.
Recital Performance Requirements for Music Majors
All applied music majors are required to perform thirty minutes of music in public recital during the junior year and fifty minutes of music in public recital during the senior year. Students in the applied music degree program are required to memorize their entire junior and senior recitals. Exceptions will be made only upon approval by the Music Department faculty.
Students in the music education degree program who choose to perform a recital are required to memorize at least fifty percent of their recital. Students scheduled to perform junior and/or senior recitals are required to perform the entire recital repertoire, as a preview, before the music faculty at least three weeks in advance of the scheduled recital.
Recital Attendance Requirements
It is agreed that listening to live music performances is of paramount importance in the training of musicians. For that reason, the Music Department asks that a specific number of concerts be attended by the student before a degree in music can be conferred. Attendance at a minimum of eight approved concerts per quarter is required of all music majors. (This required number may be changed in a given quarter by faculty action.)
In all, for graduation, ten quarters of satisfactory recital attendance are required of all entering freshman music majors. (Satisfactory recital attendance for transfer music majors is computed according to the following formula: the total remaining quarters before graduation, minus two.)
Failure to meet the recital requirement will result in a delayed graduation. A student whose graduation has been delayed by a recital attendance deficiency may make up the total deficiency during the quarter immediately following the original graduation date. Further details concerning the recital requirement may be obtained at the Music Department office.
Ensemble Requirement
All music majors are encouraged to enroll in the small ensembles of their choice in addition to the following required ensemble participation:

Minor Program Requirement
The degree requirement for the completion of a minor program outside the department is optional for students majoring in music.

All music majors and minors, regardless of their areas of musical concentration, must meet a minimum piano proficiency level. The basic piano course is designed to meet the needs of those students for whom their college studies represent a first introduction to piano playing. Class lessons with 12 members in an electronic piano laboratory provide the necessary training for beginning and elementary pianists to qualify for taking the proficiency examination required for all music majors.
