The College
The College
Metropolitan State College is proud to be a leader in comprehensive, quality education. MSC is people-students, faculty, staff and alumni-who want to share in the future of their college and Colorado.
Since its creation in 1965, this exciting, four-year college has contributed to the vitality of downtown Denver. And it has changed the face of learning in the metropolitan area with its phenomenal growth to approximately 17,000 students.
Metropolitan State College's success is reflected in the faces of its creative and determined students. Eighteen-year-olds take the first steps toward establishing a career while young professionals seek career advancement. Displaced homemakers learn new skills and all find new opportunities. The average student is 27 years old, making classes a unique blend of the eagerness of youth and the wisdom that comes with maturity. Because the student population is so diverse, education at MSC is a mutual learning experience for students and professors alike. There is a give and take between young and old, student and teacher, with all learning from one another.
While MSC's students are committed to learning, the faculty is committed to teaching. Other colleges emphasize research; MSC's more than 370 full-time faculty members are first, and most importantly, teachers. They are available to their students both in the classroom and throughout the day for extra help and advice. Many have extensive professional backgrounds, adding an invaluable dimension to their knowledge, and over 80 percent have earned the highest level of academic degree attainable in their fields.
MSC offers the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in over 70 areas-in business, human services, education, engineering technology, liberal arts, professional studies, and science and mathematics. Students can also pursue specific, individualized career choices through a contract major or minor. Several academic programs are the only ones of their type offered in the region and many enjoy national reputations for excellence. MSC is not limited to degree-seeking students. A class in the latest computer technology may attract a realtor with a fascination for high tech." A homemaker with a life-long love of Shelley and Keats may find personal growth in a literature class. The active businessman or woman may take advantage of a night class in communications or an extended campus management class at Metro South or Metro North.
MSC's impact on the metro community continues to grow each year as Denver increasingly becomes a national center of energy, commerce and technology. The College considers itself to be a partner in Denver's future and therefore seeks ways to share resources and contribute to the quality of life. MSC students work for local businesses as interns, and many classes revolve around community issues. MSC also extends learning opportunities far beyond the boundaries of the Auraria campus through the Division of Off Campus Programs, which offers credit classes at locations throughout metropolitan Denver, as well as special seminars and workshops for area professionals.
In addition, the College reinforces its partnership with the community through jointly sponsored events that entertain and educate both MSC students and the public. Lectures by nationally known figures, concerts and plays, foreign study programs and community learning projects all bring the wealth of MSC's resources into the neighborhoods of metropolitan Denver.
Metropolitan State College provides equal education and employment opportunities for all, regardless of race, color, creed, religion, age, sex, national origin or physical or mental handicap.
Accreditation/Approvals
MSC is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools, the National League for Nursing, the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, the Council for Standards in Human Service Education, the National Association of the Schools of Music, and the Association of University Programs in Health Administration. The Civil and Engineering Technology, Electronics Engineering Technology and the Mechanical Engineering Technology programs are accredited by the Technology Accreditation Commission of the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. The Department of Human Services has approval from the National Institute of Drug Abuse and the National Institute for Alcohol Abuse for the study of Drugs, Alcohol and Addictive Behavior, and approval from the National Association for Public Service Executives for Community Service Development. The Division of Science and Mathematics has approval from the American Chemical Society for Chemistry.
Campus
Metropolitan State College moved to new facilities on the Auraria Higher Education Center during the 1976-77 academic year. The 169-acre c&mpus is located in downtown Denver at Speer Boulevard and West Colfax Avenue. The Community College of Denver-Auraria Campus (CCD-A) and the University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) share the facilities with MSC.
Over one million square feet of space for classrooms, laboratories and offices are included in the facility. Some administrative offices are in restored Victorian homes in Denver's historic Ninth Street Park located within the Auraria site. The campus also features a child care center; a block-long gymnasium with a swimming pool; areas for handball, soccer, baseball and track; a student center and a library housing 700,000 volumes, one of the best research libraries in Colorado.
The Auraria Higher Education Center provides a variety of educational opportunities that meet the needs of the urban student. The three Auraria institutions continue to be governed by separate boards and to maintain their distinctive roles and missions. However, the concept of facility sharing affords the MSC student the flexibility of taking lower-division courses at the community college, and graduate, or specialized professional courses at the university. Metropolitan State College's four-year degree programs are coordinated with those of the other two institutions, and cross-registration is encouraged and can be accomplished easily.
The proximity of the Auraria Higher Education Center to downtown Denver enables students and faculty to use the community as a learning laboratory and to weave classroom theory into the social, political, cultural and economic practice of the city.
The Auraria Higher Education Center originated with the need to provide permanent facilities for three rapidly growing urban institutions. In 1974, the Auraria Board of Directors was created by the Legislature to plan the campus, construct the buildings, provide a variety of additional centralized support services and maintain the facilities. In 1972, the Colorado Legislature appropriated nearly $40 million for the construction of the Auraria campus. Additional funds were contributed by the City of Denver, the federal government through the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and the State of Colorado. This makes the Center a creative example of cooperation by government at all levels.

The College
Consortium of State Colleges
The member institutions governed by the Trustees of the Consortium of State Colleges in Colorado are Adams State College, Mesa College, Metropolitan State College, and Western State College. The purpose of the consortium is to identify and facilitate cooperative efforts among the institutions. It is expected that such efforts will lead to broader educational opportunities for students than can be offered by any one of the institutions.
The registering authority of each Consortium member institution can provide any regularly enrolled student in good standing the materials with which the student can enroll temporarily in any other member institution without incurring additional matriculation costs. Information concerning tuition is available at the host institution.
The enrollment status of the student at the host institution will be determined by the student's status at the home institution. Students should ascertain in advance of enrolling at a consortium institution that desired courses will satisfy degree requirements at the home institution. The process of enrolling as a consortium student should begin at least one month prior to the beginning of the registration period at the host institution.
Admissions Instructions
Applications for Admission are considered in the order in which they are received each semester. To insure guaranteed processing, applications for admission must be, and credentials should be, received at the College not later than four weeks prior to the first day of classes of the semester for which admission is sought. All credentials which are received by the College become the property of Metropolitan State College and will not be returned to the student. All transcripts should be sent directly from the issuing institution to Metropolitan State College, 100611th Street, Box 16, Denver, Colorado, 80204. Under no circumstances will hand-carried transcripts be accepted.
It is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the Office of Admissions and Records of any changes on the application for admission prior to the first day of classes. If demographic changes are not reported to the Office of Admissions and Records, it could delay the admission process for subsequent enrollment. Failure to report academic changes to the Office of Admissions and Records may result in rejection or dismissal.
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.

4. Upon receipt of the above credentials, and after a preliminary evaluation has been made, the applicant will be informed of her or his admission status.
5. Students are required to have official high school transcripts or GED test scores sent directly to the College from the issuing institution no later than the fourth week of the term to insure mail registration processing for the subsequent term. Students will not be permitted to register beyond their initial enrollment unless these credentials are received.
Admission Through ACT/SAT
Although the ACT and SAT are not required for admission, high school students are encouraged to take the ACT or SAT to provide a basis for advising and counseling. If, when the student takes the ACT or SAT, she or he indicates Metropolitan State College as one of the first three choices to receive the ACT or SAT Profile Reports, the following admission procedures shall apply:
1. A letter of explanation and application form will be sent to the student.
2. If the student wishes to be considered for admission, she or he should complete the form, have the high school counselor sign it, and return it to MSC.
3. There is NO application fee.
4. The ACT and SAT Profile Reports and the application form will be used in lieu of a formal application.
5. The student need submit only one official high school transcript (following graduation) with the date the diploma was awarded. It is the students responsibility to insure that the official high school transcript is sent directly to Metropolitan State College's Office of Admissions and Records from the high school.
High School Student Education and Enrichment Program
The 'SEE' program allows high school students to sample college courses on a selective basis while enriching their current high school studies. The program emphasizes high academic achievement in high school.
To apply for admission, the following procedures apply:
1. Submit a standard admission application accompanied by the following:
(a) a high school counselor/administrator's recommendation stating how the student will benefit from early college attendance.

The College
2. Complete the application for admission and return it to the Office of Admissions and Records. To insure processing, the application must be received by the College at least four weeks prior to the first day of classes of the semester for which admission is sought.
3. A $10 application fee, which is nonrefundable and will not apply toward tuition, must accompany the application for admission. The fee must be received or waived before the application can be considered.
4. 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.
5. Students are required to have official transcripts sent directly to the College from the issuing institution no later than the fourth week of the term to insure mail registration processing for the subsequent term. Students will not be permitted to register beyond their initial enrollment unless these credentials are received. Although an applicants record from several institutions may be summarized on one transcript, official transcripts from each institution attended are required. This is true even though no credit may have been earned at an institution. The only exception is for a non-degree-seeking student who already has an undergraduate degree. For these students, the only official transcript required is the transcript from the institution granting the undergraduate degree.
Transfer Credit Evaluation
Once final official transcripts for degree-seeking students are received by the Office of Admissions and Records, the evaluation process begins. The student receives a transfer evaluation priority card which must be signed by the student major department advisor. The card is then submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records. Within approximately ten weeks students receive two copies of the transfer credit evaluation, one of which is taken to the major and minor departments for advice on how credits might apply to their programs.
Transfer credits will be accepted under the following guidelines:
1. Grades earned must be A, B, C or equivalent; however, only the credits will be shown on the MSC academic record. Courses with grades of D, F or similar grades will not be accepted in transfer.
2. Course content should be similar to those courses offered at Metropolitan State College.
3. A maximum of 70 semester hours will be accepted from a two-year institution. A maximum of 90 semester hours of credit will be given for acceptable work completed at a four-year institution or combination of two- and four-year institutions.
4. Students earning a two-year degree consisting of at least 60 semester hours (possibly excluding CLEP) from an accredited institution with a G.P.A. of 2.0 or better will be guaranteed 60 semester hours of transfer credit, if they have met the following minimums in the MSC general studies areas as part of the two-year degree.
Freshman English............................. 4 semester hours
Humanities...........................................8 semester hours
Science/Mathematics..................................8 semester hours
Social/Behavioral Science ....................8 semester hours
plus 2 additional hours in any
one of these areas or in the
Career area..........................................2 semester hours
30 semester hours
These 60 semester hours of transfer credit may not necessarily fulfill all general studies course requirements for a particular degree program. Students should consult with an advisor in their major department to determine whether additional general studies courses will be required.
Admission of Previously Enrolled Students
(Former students who have not been in attendance at Metropolitan State College for one or more years)
1. Obtain the Application for Readmission from the Office of Admissions and Records, Central Classroom Building, 1006 11th St., Denver, Colorado 80204 (303/556-3058).

Admission of Special Students
This special student category will permit students to register for classes without having to submit any official transcripts. SPECIAL STUDENTS MUST MEET THE NORMAL ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS OF ALL STUDENTS, and may earn not more than 18 semester hours of credit. In order to register for classes subsequent to earning 18 semester hours of credit, a student is required to have all required transcripts sent directly to the College from the issuing institutions.
A(fmission of International Students
All students who declare a country of citizenship other than the United States on their applications for admission must contact the Office of Admissions and Records.
1. Admission of permanent immigrants (or refugees,

If students are academically admissible and have met the minimum requirements on the English proficiency examination, they will be issued the U.S. Immigration form 20 (I-20). Questions regarding the admission of students from abroad or permanent immigrants should be forwarded to the Office of Admissions and Records.
Admission and Retention of Minority Students
Metropolitan State College, through its office of Admissions and Records, strives to enhance the educational opportunities for Denver area minority residents. A recruitment network of community-based agencies and organizations assists the College in meeting this objective. In addition, Admissions Officers are available to provide individual counseling regarding general admissions procedures for both new and transfer students. Specific counseling and referral services are also provided in the areas of financial aid, career planning, and academic support. Minority residents interested in attending the College are encouraged to contact the Office of Admissions and Records at the earliest possible date. Phone 556-3058 for information.
Tuition Classification
A student is classified as an in-state or out-of-state student for tuition purposes at the time of admission. This classification is based upon information supplied by the student on the application for admission and is made in accordance with the Colorado Tuition Classification Law, CRS S23-7-101 et seq. (1973), as amended. Once determined, a students tuition classification status remains unchanged unless satisfactory evidence that a change should be made is presented. A Petition for In-State Tuition Classification' and the evidence requested in it should be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records, if a student believes she or he is entitled to in-state status.
The tuition classification statute requires that in order to qualify for in-state status a student (or the parents or legal guardian of the student in the case of students under 22 years of age who are not emancipated) must have been domiciled in Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the last day to add classes for the semester for which such classification is sought.
Domicile for tuition purposes requires two inseparable elements:
(1) a permanent place of habitation in Colorado and (2) intent to remain in Colorado with no intent to be domiciled elsewhere.
Some examples of connections with the state which provide objective evidence of intent are: (1) payment of Colorado state income tax, (2) permanent employment in Colorado, (3) ownership of residential real property in Colorado, (4) compliance with laws imposing a mandatory duty on any domiciliary of the state, such as the drivers' license law and the vehicle registration law, and (5) registering to vote. Other factors peculiar to the individual can also be used to demonstrate the requisite intent.
Any questions regarding the tuition classification law should be directed to an admissions officer at the College. In order to qualify for in-state status for a particular semester, the student must prove that domicile began not later than one year prior to the last day to add classes for that semester. Petitions and all supporting documentation must be submitted by the last day to add a class for the semester subsequent to that for which the change in classification is sought. The dates for qualifying and for submitting petitions are published in the class schedule each semester.
Education Policy for Persons Over 62
Older area citizens are encouraged to participate in Metropolitan State College's programs and activities.
1. Persons 62 years or older, wishing to enroll for credit, should submit required admissions and registration materials to the Office of Admissions and Records, Central Classroom Building, Room 103, 1006 11th Street. Every attempt will be made to make financial assistance available. A college record of participation will be maintained.
2. Persons 62 years or older, who do not wish to earn credit, are invited to attend class on a space-available basis, in classes of their choice, at either Metropolitan State College or at Extended Campus locations. There is no cost for these classes. These persons may attend classes beginning the sixth day of each semester. Interested older persons should obtain a registration form from the Metro-Meritus Program in the Academic Advising and Tutoring Center. This form must be signed by the instructor granting approval and returned to the Metro-Meritus Office.
Participation on the no-cost, no-credit basis should not contribute to an increased faculty workload and will not involve required homework or examinations. No college records of participation will be maintained.
Financial Aid Instructions
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 Pell Grant Program (formerly BEOG), the National Direct Student Loan Program, the Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant Program, the Colorado State Grant Program, as well as the College Work-Study, Colorado Work-Study, Nursing Loan, and Nursing Scholarship Programs. The office also coordinates Bureau of Indian Affairs Grants through various Indian Agencies.
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 her or 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.

2. The Family Financial Statement
Financial Aid Application Procedure
Financial Aid applications are available in January. Financial Aid Awards will be processed by date of file completion. (File completion is based on all necessary documentation being in the file). Students should check with the Financial Aid Office for their file completion status.
Eligibility
Most financial assistance will be based on financial need, and any student with a demonstrated need will receive consideration. Financial need equals the estimated cost of attendance minus the resources available to the student. Resources must include parental contributions, spouse's earnings, and outside income such as veteran's benefits and social security.
Participants in the federal and state aid programs must be citizens of the United States, Nationals, or be a permanent resident of the Trust Territory of the Pacific Islands, maintain satisfactory progress toward a degree and attend the College on a full-time basis (12 hours per semester).
Duration of Awards
All financial aid awards are made for one academic year (or less). To continue receiving an award, a student must:
1. Be in good standing with the College.
2. Continue to demonstrate financial need.
3. Maintain satisfactory academic progress.
Continuing awards are contingent upon adequate funding of the Federal and State financial aid programs.
Satisfactory Academic Progress
The awarding of financial aid is a contractual agreement between the student and Metropolitan State College. The continuation of financial aid is based upon the student making satisfactory academic progress. Satisfactory academic progress is defined as registering for and completing 12 hours per semester with a GPA of 2.00.
Students who complete fewer than six (6) credit hours in any given semester (4 credit hours summer semester) or fail to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 may have their aid cancelled. These students may be reconsidered for further aid only after they have completed the required credit hours in any given semester, on their own and/or have shown a substantial improvement in their cumulative GPA, as determined by a Financial Aid counselor in consultation with the student.
An 'NC' (no credit or credit-incomplete) notation or an 'F' grade is not considered a completed course for financial aid purposes.
Financial Aid Resources
National Direct Student Loans (NDSL)
Undergraduate students may borrow up to $6,000 during their undergraduate career. Total loans for the first two years of school may not exceed $3,000. Repayment of the NDSL begins six months after the student ceases to carry at least a half-time schedule of courses (6 hours). NDSL funds are to be repaid at a minimum of $30 per month. The period of repayment generally cannot exceed ten years. The NDSL has cancellation provisions. Information regarding cancellation may be obtained from the Student Financial Aid Office.
Principal and interest payments are deferrable during periods of at least half-time study.
Colorado Guaranteed Student Loan/Federally Insured Student Loan
The Guaranteed Student Loan Program enables students to borrow from lenders at a low interest rate to meet educational expenses. Eligible undergraduates may borrow up to $2,500 in a single year, but not more than $12,500 during their undergraduate career. The interest rate for first-time borrowers is currently 9 percent on the unpaid balance. The interest does not start to accrue nor does the loan become payable until six (6) months after the student ceases to be a half-time student.
The choice of the lending institution and the actual negotiation of the loan under this program are the responsibility of the student borrower. Loans are approved or denied at the discretion of the individual private lending institution after eligibility is determined by the Financial Aid Office. Forms are available at participating lenders. Processing time may range from four to eight weeks.
Student Support Loans
Student support emergency loans are available through the Student Government Loan Fund. Their offices are located in the Student Center. Loans may be secured for emergency expenses. All loans are due and payable upon receipt of the student's next Financial Aid Check.
A loan fund has been established in memory of Raymond R. Uhl, a former student at Metropolitan State College, who was killed in military action in Vietnam. The purpose of this fund is to assist needy students through loans for short periods of time.
Pell Grants (Formerly BEOG)
The Pell Grant Program is a federal aid program designed to provide financial assistance to those who need it to attend post-high school educational institutions.

In the event a conflict exists between the policies/procedures of MSC and one of the Colleges listed above, the most restrictive policy prevails. Information concerning current procedures for enrolling for courses at these other institutions is available from the Office of Admissions and Records.
Concurrent Enrollment
Concurrent enrollment differs from interinstitutional enrollment in that the student is currently matriculated and enrolled at two different institutions. 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 registering authority of each institution. Students concurrently enrolled are affected by the academic policies of both institutions.
Semester Hours Credit
Course credit is based upon units designed as 'semester hours. One semester hour represents one class period of fifty minutes per week for fifteen weeks and normally about two hours per week of preparation by the student outside of class. Laboratory courses give one semester hour of credit for each two, three or four hours of scheduled work in the laboratory during a week.
Course Load
The average course load per fifteen-week semester is fifteen or sixteen semester hours. Students who are academically strong
may take up to eighteen semester hours during Autumn and Spring Semesters and up to twelve semester hours during the Summer Semester. Students with cumulative grade point averages of 3.25 or higher may take nineteen or twenty semester hours during Fall and Spring Semesters and those with grade point averages of 3.50 or higher may take twenty-one semester hours. Authorization for overloads without these grade point average minimums must be obtained from the students major department chairperson and appropriate Dean. Authorization for overloads in excess of 21 semester credits is given by the Board on Academic Standards Exceptions, following a successful formal appeal prior to the beginning of the semester. The appeal should begin by obtaining a petition from Academic Advising.
For information on the charge per credit hour in excess of 18 refer to the Costs' section of this Bulletin.
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, content, 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 students should not take courses above the level of their class (based upon semester hours earned), they may do so at one level above if they have the specified prerequisites. In special cases, students may be permitted to take courses more than one level above that designated for their class if, in addition to meeting the requirements for prerequisites, they obtain the permission of their advisor and of the faculty member teaching the course.
After each course number is a figure specifying the semester hours of credit. As an example, English 101-3 is a three-credit course. Following the course title is a second set of numbers in parentheses indicating the division of time between lecture and laboratory. The second number in parentheses indicates the number of laboratory, shop, or field hours. For example, in a science course followed by (3+ 4), the numbers indicate three hours of lecture and four hours of laboratory.
Course descriptions provide a summary of the content of the course. If there is a prerequisite that must be met before a student will be permitted to register for the course, this information is listed above 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 advance of the beginning of each semester, and is available to all students.
Decisions on which of the courses listed in this Bulletin are taught during the year will be based on predictions of student demand and the amount of funds available.
Changes in Registration
Students enrolled may adjust schedules by dropping and/or adding classes during the first fifteen percent of each semester (not including weekends). See the current Semester Class Schedule for complete information concerning the tuition and fee refund schedule.
Students who reduce their course load after fifteen percent of the term through the end of the fourth week of classes will receive an NC notation for each course they have adjusted and a twenty five percent refund if applicable. An NC withdrawal form must be submitted by the deadline to the Office of Admissions and Records.
17


Academic Information
Students reducing their course load after the fourth week of classes through the end of the fourteenth week of classes may receive an NC' notation for each course provided faculty approval is granted. An NC withdrawal form must be submitted by the deadlline to the office of admissions and records. See the paragraphs on Grades, Course Load, and Class Attendance in this Section.
Proportional time frames are applied for module courses and workshops.
Procedures for adding or dropping a five-week course after the course has begun are described in the current Class Schedule.
Class Attendance
Students are expected to attend all sessions of courses for which they are registered. Each instructor determines when a student's absences have reached a point that they jeopardize success in a course. When absences become excessive, the student may receive a failing grade for the course.
If students anticipate a prolonged absence because of illness, they should contact their instructors, if possible. If they find that they cannot do this, they should contact the Vice-President for Student Affairs who will inform the instructors of the reasons for the anticipated absence.
Whenever an instructor thinks that a students absences are interfering with academic progress, she/he may submit a letter to the Office of the Vice-President for Student Affairs informing him of the situation.
Adaptive Self-Paced Learning
Adaptive Self-Paced Learning is a phrase used to describe classes in which students are allowed to proceed at a pace that is suited to their personal learning needs and learning style. Students may proceed rapidly, finishing a course well in advance of the end of a semester or module, with the advantage of being able to begin new studies or to concentrate on other courses. Students may proceed slowly 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 'SP' or self-paced.' Information on the method of instruction and the nature of program is available in each department. Self-paced courses are optional and are open to all.
Students who do not complete the work of a self-paced course during a semester are given the notation of 'NC' and must re-enroll in and pay for the course in a subsequent semester in order to continue in that course. A letter grade is awarded during the semester in which the work is completed satisfactorily.
Nontraditional Credit Options in Lieu of Course Requirements
Successful completion of special examinations and/or completion of a prior learning portfolio which, assessed for credit, may be substituted for the completion of course requirements, may permit placement in advanced courses, or may be used as the basis for awarding credit. A student may earn up to sixty semester hours of credit toward degree requirements using nontraditional credit options. Approved credit of this sort will be posted to the student's record after the completion of 8 semester hours of classroom (resident) credit. Nontraditional credit may not be used toward the last twelve credit hours of a degree program, does not substitute for residency requirements, and may not be used to challenge prerequisite courses for courses already completed. Students are advised that letter grades are not assigned for nontraditional credit, and some institutions may not accept transfer credits which do not include letter grades.
Departmental Course Examinations
In special cases a department may grant a student credit toward graduation for college courses in which she or he requests and passes special college examinations. Under this provision a maximum of 30 semester hours of credit may be awarded by the College. A fee of $10.00 per semester hour credit will be charged.
Examinations for credit must be based on work equivalent to a regular course offered by the college (omnibus-numbered courses are excluded), and the credit granted will be for the corresponding course, provided the student has no previous collegiate enrollment for a similar course and the credit is applicable toward the students graduation requirements. Evidence of work justifying an examination for credit must be presented to the department chairperson no later than the third week of classes in a semester. Permission for such examination must be secured in advance from the appropriate dean upon recommendation of the department chairperson.
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. Credit by examination will not be approved for a student who is within 12 classroom credit hours of completing degree requirements. No credit by examination can be obtained for a course in which a student has been officially enrolled at Metropolitan State College or at another institution, whether or not the course has been completed and a grade awarded. Credit by examination cannot be obtained for college courses attended as a listener, visitor, or auditor.
When students have completed a course in the same discipline, higher in number than the course for which they are seeking examination credit, permission will be granted provided the two courses are unrelated and approval is granted by the appropriate department chairperson and dean. In a given discipline no credit by examination can be obtained for a course lower in a number in a sequence than the highest-numbered course already completed by that student. If a student is registered for, but has not completed a higher-numbered course in a sequence, the examination for the lower-numbered course must be completed within the first three weeks of the semester. Exceptions must be appealed to the Board of Academic Standards Exceptions following endorsement of the department chairperson or dean. Examinations cannot be taken to raise grades, to remove failures, or to remove NC' or 'SP' notations. Credit by examination is not applicable toward academic residence requirements.
Examples of unrelated subject matter:
ART 212, Human Anatomy for Artists ART 103, Basic Photography Methods ITS 241, Introduction to Photography ITS 101, Introduction to Wood
Examination for credit will be taken 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 A or B' 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. Credits in courses for which credit is earned by examination are not considered in computing college grade point averages.
Credit by examination will be posted after a student has completed 8 semester hours of credit at Metropolitan State College and after an evaluation of all possible transfer credits has been completed.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
The College Board has developed a program of examinations designed to evaluate non-traditional college-level education, specifically including independent study and correspondence work, and to award credit for successful demonstration of this knowledge. This program, known as the College-Level
18


Academic Information
Examination Program or CLEP, consists of two series of examinations -- the General Examinations and the Subject Examinations.
The General Examination series includes five separate examinations covering the areas of English Composition, Humanities, Natural Sciences, Math and Social Sciences-History. Based on the results of these examinations, the College may award up to a maximum of 30 semester hours of credit in the freshman general studies requirements areas. Thus, the successful student may test out of most of the traditional courses required during the freshman year. MSC does not allow credit for the English Composition Examination.
The Subject Examination series consists of more than 45 examinations which apply to specific college courses. MSC allows credit for 18 of these examinations. Thirty semester hours of credit also may be awarded under this series, making a total of 60 semester hours of credit obtainable under a combination of the two series of examinations.
Credit obtained under CLEP at another institution will be reevaluated according to MSC credit-by-examination standards.
Interested students should contact the Counseling Center for complete information about this program before registering to take any of these exams.
Credit for Prior Learning
Students may apply for credit for college-level prior learning gained through experience by submitting a prior learning portfolio to the Adult Learning and Assessment Center which will forward it to the appropriate academic department for evaluation and assessment. Credits are awarded on the basis of careful evaluation of the prior learning portfolio which should demonstrate that the applicant's prior learning is equivalent to the learning objectives described in course syllabi for courses taught at Metropolitan State College. (Students may need to check with departments for specific departmental guidelines in addition to College guidelines.) The award of credit will be recommended by the departments, and must receive final approval from the Prior Learning Assessment Committee composed of a faculty representative from each School of the College. Applicants for Credit for Prior Learning will generally be required to take the Portfolio Development Workshop. A fee of one-half the part-time student tuition rate will be assessed for credit awarded. Policies governing nontraditional credit options apply for credit for prior learning. Contact the Adult Learning and Assessment Center at 1033 Ninth Street Park for assistance and further information.
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 substitute a subject of her/his own choice for the required subject. The examination is approximately the equivalent of the final examination in the course.
Advanced Placement Examinations
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 chairperson, determines the amount and nature of the credit and/or advanced placement granted.
Credit for Military Training and Other Training Programs
Military training and other training programs which have been assessed for college credit by the American Council on Education will be evaluated by the Office of Admissions and Records for transfer credit at Metropolitan State College. For formal military
training, copies of training certificates and a copy of the DD214 should be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records. For other training, official ACE transcripts should be submitted.
Pass-Fail Option
The pass-fail option encourages the students to venture out of their major and minor fields and thereby broaden their educational experience. The 'pass grade has no effect on the grade point average; the 'fail' grade is equivalent to the grade of 'F'.
Students having already completed at least one MSC course with at least a 2.00 cumulative grade point average may choose to be evaluated for a certain course on a pass-fail basis rather than by letter grade. Courses taken on a pass-fail basis will apply to major, minor or teacher certification requirements only with the approval of the appropriate department chairperson. Self-paced courses may not be taken under the pass-fail option. Maximum graduation credit for these ungraded courses is eighteen credit hours, earned in no more than six courses, limited to one course per semester or module.
A student must declare interest in the pass-fail option no later than the last day to add classes (during fifteen percent of the term) for a particular semester or module by contacting the Office of Admissions and Records. The instructor will assign and record the pass-fail grade on a final grade list which identifies students electing and eligible for pass-fail grading. If the student requests the option and later is declared ineligible, he receives notification from the Office of Admissions and Records during the semester that he will receive a regular letter-grade in the course. Once approved, the request for the pass-fail option is irrevocable.
Some institutions do not accept credits for courses in which a 'pass' grade is given. Therefore, students who plan to transfer or take graduate work should determine whether the institution of their choice will accept the credit before registering for courses under the pass-fail option.
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, with the possible exception of seminar courses or special projects.
Grades/Notations
Alphabetical grades and status symbols used at Metropolitan State College are as follows:
A -- Superior.................4 quality points per
hour attempted.
B -- Above Average............3 quality points per
hour attempted
C -- Average .................2 quality points per
hour attempted.
D -- Below Average but Passing .... 1 quality point per
hour attempted.
F -- Failure .................0 quality points per
hour attempted.
NC No Credit Nl No Credit Incomplete S Satisfactory (Limited to Student Teaching)
P Pass
X -- Grade assignment pending. Student must see Faculty for an explanation or assignment of grade.
The No Credit (NC) notation is not a grade. It may indicate withdrawal from the course, a request at registration for no credit, course repetition, or may be assigned when a student was unable to take the final examination and/or did not complete all of her/his out-of-class assignments due to unusual circumstances such as hospitalization. Incomplete work denoted by Nl must be completed within one calendar year or earlier, at the discretion of the faculty member. The notation has no effect on the grade point average.

19


Academic Information
The NC notation may also be used in self-paced courses to indicate that the student and/or the faculty have decided to extend the students exposure to the course in order to increase the students proficiency. In order to earn credit, the student must re-register for and pay for the course in a subsequent term. The Nl notation may not be awarded in a self-paced course.
The following minimal requirements shall be required throughout the College and shall be a part of all school, departmental, or individual policies:
1. The NC notation shall be available to students in all instances through the fourth week of classes of each term.
2. During the last week of a term, requests by students for an NC notation in a given course shall not be granted. The NC (incomplete) notation may be used during this period provided the conditions specified above apply.
3. A written policy statement describing the use of the NC notation shall be given to each student for each class in which she/he enrolls.
4. Students are expected to attend all sessions of courses for which they are registered. Each instructor determines when a student's absences have reached a point that they jeopardize her/his success in a course. When absences become excessive, the student may receive a failing grade for the course.
Additional requirements for an NC notation may be set by each school, department, and/or faculty member. School policies shall supersede departmental policies; either school policies or departmental policies shall supersede individual policies.
Repeated Courses (Last Grade Stands)
A student may repeat any MSC course previously taken regardless of the original grade earned. By so doing only the credit and the grade for the latest attempt at the course will remain on the student's academic record. The grade for the prior attempt(s) will be changed to the NC' notation. The courses must carry the same title, course number and credit hours. To effect such a change, the student must re-register and pay tuition for the course in question, complete the course with a letter grade and complete the necessary form in the Office of Admissions and Records indicating that the course has been repeated. Otherwise, the grade change will be made administratively at the time of degree evaluation or earlier, as identified. Credit duplication involving transfer, inter-institutional or consortium courses may be treated differently from the above procedure. This policy cannot be utilized for the purpose of altering grades assigned prior to the receipt of a degree from MSC.
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 by the 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 attempted. The notations NC, Nl, S, and P have no effect on the grade point average.
Transcripts of Records
A transcript is a certified copy of a students permanent record and shows the academic status of the student at time of issuance. Copies are available at $1 each. Transcripts will be released by the Office of Admissions and Records upon formal written request by the student. Transcripts will also be issued to firms and employers if written authorization is received from the student. Requests should include the student's full name as recorded while attending MSC, student identification number, last term of
attendance, number of copies desired, and to whom and where transcripts are to be sent. Transcripts may be withheld because of indebtedness to the College or for other appropriate reasons. Certified true copies of transcripts from other institutions which are on file in the Office of Admissions and Records will be issued upon signed request by the student. A charge of $1 per copy page is assessed for this service. Students from other institutions taking MSC courses under the consortium or inter-institutional registration programs must request transcripts from their home institutions reflecting these courses.
Student Grade Appeal Procedure
If students have reason to question the validity of a grade received in a course, they must make their request for a change before the end of the second week of the semester following the completion of the course -- the following Autumn Semester in the case of the preceding Spring Semester. The Grade Appeal Guidelines may be obtained from the student's respective dean.
Student Classification
Students are classified according to the number of semester hours of credit earned: Freshmen fewer than 30; sophomores 30 or more, but fewer than 60; juniors 60 or more, but fewer than 90; seniors 90 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 Vice Presidents Award is given to one 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 scholarship ability, personal integrity, and campus leadership.
Junior and senior students receiving the above awards are among those selected for publication in Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges.
In addition to annual awards, students with outstanding academic achievements are recognized by being named on Metropolitan State College Honor Lists. The President's Honor List carries the names of students who, at the time of computation, have achieved a cumulative grade point average of 3.85 or higher. The Vice Presidents Honor List carries the names of students who, at the time of computation, have achieved a cumulative grade point average of between 3.50 and 3.84, inclusive.
Computation will occur initially when the student has completed between 30 and 60 hours at MSC, then again between 60 and 90 hours, and finally after more than 90 hours.
Graduation honors are awarded to students who have demonstrated superior academic ability in their baccalaureate degree while attending Metropolitan State College. Honors designations are determined according to the following criteria:
1) Summa Cum Laude- Top 5 percent graduates within each school with cumulative MSC GPA of no less than 3.65 Magna Cum Laude- Next 10 percent of graduates within each school with cumulative MSC GPA of no less than 3.65.
2) To determine each honors category grade point averages for the previous spring semester graduates are arrayed in rank order. This rank ordering is then used to determine the honors recipients among the following summer, autumn and spring graduates.
3) To qualify for graduation honors recognition, a student must have completed a minimum of 50 semester hours of classroom credit at MSC prior to the term of graduation.
20


Academic Information
4) Courses completed during the term of graduation and transfer credits are not considered when determining honors.
Omnibus Courses
The omnibus courses listed below are designed to provide flexible learning opportunities. Experimental topics courses, seminars, and workshops deal with novel subjects and current problems. Independent study allows students to investigate problems of special interest. Supervised field study and internships, conducted cooperatively with business, industry, government and other agencies, provide practical on-the-job learning opportunities. Content of these courses should not duplicate that of regular courses listed in the Bulletin. They may be offered by all departments in the College.
A specific course plan for topic and group workshop courses, which covers content and credit hours, must be submitted by an instructor and approved by the chairperson of the department or discipline, and dean of the school before such a course can be listed in the schedule of classes. These same approvals are required for plans of study which individual students submit for registration in a workshop course (when individualized) or an independent study course.
No more than 30 semester hours earned in all of the omnibus courses will be counted toward meeting degree requirements. One omnibus course numbered either 190 or 390 of up to three (3) hours credit may be used to satisfy General Studies requirements in each of the areas of Humanities, Science and Mathematics, and Social and Behavioral Sciences, if the course has a prefix of one of the Departments within the respective subject matter areas; e.g., HIS 190 may be used in Social and Behavioral Sciences, but not in Science and Mathematics.
The following course numbers are the same for omnibus courses in all disciplines and, when listed in class schedules, registration forms and college records will carry the prefix of the discipline in which the course is offered. In addition to prerequisites listed under a course, and the approvals outlined above, other prerequisites appropriate to the study and departmental objectives may be added.
190 (Credit Variable). Topics
Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
An introductory study of selected topics especially appropriate for lower-division students.
299 (Credit Variable). Field Experience/lnternship
Prerequisite:Sophomore standing and permission of instructor. A supervised in-service field or laboratory experience in an area related to the students major, conducted by an affiliated organization in cooperation with the department/discipline in which the student is majoring.
390 (Credit Variable). Advanced Topics
Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
An in-depth inquiry into selected problems.
480 (Credit Variable). Workshop Prerequisite: Approval of department.

Prerequisite: Permission of instructor.
An advanced level supervised in-service field or laboratory experience in an area related to the students major, conducted by an affiliated organization in cooperation with the department/discipline in which the student is majoring.
Field Experience/lnternship Courses
Field experience or experiential education courses are courses whose major instructional activities are conducted outside the regular classroom, but whose syllabi are formally approved by the Institution and maintained as an integral part of a departments curriculum. These courses incorporate actual experience with information assimilation and adhere to policies set forth by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education. Certain programs such as Teacher Education, Nursing, etc., require experiential education courses as a part of their major. Other departments offer experiential education courses, generally as a part of the students major or minor, for credit applicable to graduation requirements.
Five terms identify field experience courses offered at Metropolitan State College: External Laboratory, Practicum, Internship, Student Teaching, and Independent Study.
External Laboratory
A controlled environment or organized activity emphasizing experimentation where guided observations and participation, under the guidance and supervision of the faculty member and the cooperating supervisor, enhance the integration of theory and practice (as child development). The External Laboratory is distinguished from the on-campus laboratory which is devoted to experimental study in any branch of the natural or applied sciences.
Practicum
A unit of work that involves apprenticeship in the practical application of previously studied theory under the observance and supervision of a skilled practitioner and faculty member (as practicum in reading).
Internship
A work-oriented training period of actual service in an agency, institution, or technical/business establishment that provides an in-depth learning experience for the student under the direct supervision of an on-site supervisor as well as the scrutiny and guidance of a faculty member (as cooperative education). Student Teaching
Faculty supervised learning experience in which the student applies knowledge gained in the Teacher Education Program to a classroom setting (as practice teaching).
Independent Study
A student-initiated creative or research project conducted under the direct guidance and supervision of a faculty member of an academic department or discipline (as a thesis or special upper division project).
Guidelines for Field Experience/lnternship Courses
1. Credit may vary from one to fifteen hours, depending upon the instructional activity.
2. Students are expected to meet the minimum Base Clock Hours established by CCHE policy which requires two to three times the clock hours established for regular classroom instruction.
3. Approved cooperating agencies provide learning opportunities, prepare written statements of assignments, monitor students' performance, confer with the supervising
21


Academic Information
faculty member, and provide a written evaluation upon request.
4. An average of one hour a week, minimally, is spent in seminar and discussion or in conference with the adjunct faculty at the field experience locale and/or in conference with the supervising faculty member.
5. The supervising faculty member evaluates students' performance and, in consultation with the adjunct faculty member, assigns the grade for the course according to grading policies stated in the College Bulletin.
6. Omnibus courses (299, 498, 499) emphasizing field experiences are subject to guidelines established for regular field-based courses and must be approved by the Office of Academic Affairs.
Programs of Study and Degree Requirements
Students are responsible for full knowledge of the information provided in this Bulletin concerning regulations and requirements of the College and their program of study.
The instructional program has been organized so that students may work toward one or more of the following objectives: (1) following a curriculum in arts, sciences, or applied sciences to meet requirements for Bachelor of Arts or Science Degree; (2) taking programs, which may or may not involve being a degree candidate, to prepare for careers in business and public services; or (3) enrolling for selected courses to improve general education or vocational competency.
Requirements for All Degrees
To earn a degree, students must satisfy the course and other requirements for the curriculum under which they are registered and must complete a minimum of 120 semester hours with a cumulative average of 2.00 or higher.
For degree requirement evaluation purposes, students may select any Bulletin in effect while they are enrolled at Metropolitan State College providing that the Bulletin contains their complete program of study. A student interrupting continuous enrollment for one calendar year or more may select only those Bulletins in effect after return to the institution. Students must complete the general studies, major, minor, and all other degree requirements as outlined in the Bulletin under which jlpey plan to graduate. 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, students are responsible for full knowledge of the provisions and regulations pertaining to their program and should seek advice when in doubt. The student should never assume approval to deviate from the stated requirements without a properly signed statement to that effect. Transfer students should become familiar with the requirements of the College, the general studies, and their major and minor areas.
Graduation Agreement
The official academic evaluation process is initiated when the student completes the Graduation Agreement. Once the student has received program approval from the major department chairperson and the minor department chairperson, the student submits the Agreement to the Office of Admissions and Records for final review. After the completion of each subsequent semester of academic work, the student will receive an updated Academic Status Report.
The deadline for submitting the Graduation Agreement coincides with the deadline for submitting early (mail) registration for the semester the student plans to graduate. However, since the student is ultimately responsible for the success or failure of her/his program of study, it is expected that the Agreement will
be submitted at least two years prior to the semester 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 Board of Academic Standards Exceptions to request a variance. Valid reasons for variances must accompany all petitions and must be signed by the appropriate Dean and department chairperson.
Students who have met all requirements for graduation may be granted diplomas at the end of the semester in which the work is completed. A formal commencement ceremony is held at the conclusion of the Spring Semester. Students who officially graduated during any of the previous three semesters are invited but are not required to participate in the Spring Commencement.
Requirements for All Bachelor Degrees
To earn a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science, a student must satisfy the following minimum requirements, plus any others stipulated for the degree for which a student is a candidate.
Programs of Study and Degree Requirements
1. Complete a minimum of 120 semester hours with a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher for all Metropolitan State College course work.
2. Complete at least 40 semester hours in upper-division courses (300-and 400-level courses).
3. Complete all general studies requirements listed for the degree and major.
4. Complete one subject major consisting of not less than 30 semester hours. With certain exceptions (see major department), complete a minor consisting of at least 18 semester hours. If a student completes two majors, the second major satisfies the minor requirement; however, a second emphasis within the first major does not constitute a second major. Coursework used toward meeting requirements for one major or minor may not be used toward meeting requirements for another major or minor.
5. Complete all special requirements of a department and school.
6. Achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 or higher in all MSC courses which satisfy the requirements for the major and for all MSC courses which satisfy requirements for a minor.
7. Complete a Graduation Agreement.
8. Academic Residency (classroom credit)
a. Complete a minimum of 30 semester hours of classroom credit at Metropolitan State College, including the last 10 semester hours applicable to the degree.
b. Complete at least 8 upper-division (300- and 400-level) semester hours of the major and 4 upper-division hours of the minor at Metropolitan State College (classroom credit).
c. Students should check with the Office of Admissions and Records before attempting to apply interinstitu-tional credit to academic residence requirements.
9. Credit Limitations:
a. Not more than 30 semester hours of omnibus-numbered courses may be applied toward graduation requirements.
b. Not more than 4 semester hours in physical education activity courses will be counted toward a Bachelor's Degree for students who are not majoring in Physical Education or Recreation, and only 3 of these may be applied to the career category of general studies.
c. Not more than 7 semester hours in music ensemble courses will be counted toward a Bachelor's Degree for students who are not majoring in Music, and only
22


Academic Information
3 of these may be applied to the humanities category of general studies.
d. Not more than 30 semester hours taken by extension and/or correspondence may be applied toward a Bachelors Degree.
General Studies for Bachelor Degrees
Candidates for either the Bachelor of Arts or the Bachelor of Science degree are required to meet the general studies distribution requirements listed below. Each of the category requirements may be satisfied by any course within the departments listed including only one omnibus course numbered either 190 or 390 of up to three (3) hours credit in each of the areas of Humanities, Science and Mathematics, and Social and Behavioral Sciences, if the course has a prefix of one of the departments within the respective subject matter areas. No omnibus course may be applied to the Freshman Composition or Career catagory. Not more than 6 semester hours taken in any one department (as indicated by the three-letter course prefix) will apply toward general studies requirements. Each degree candidate must complete English 101 and English 102. The same course may be used toward meeting requirements in the general studies and the major or minor with the approval of the major or minor department chairperson. The credit value of the course may be considered only once, however, in the upper-division and cumulative credit totals. The Career category is an option within the General Studies. A maximum of 6 semester hours of applicable course work may be applied to the Career category to compensate for less than 10 (but at least 8) semester hours in each of the Humanities, Science and Mathematics and Social/Behavioral Science categories. Students should check for specific general studies requirements stipulated by their major. Specific courses are listed in Afro-American Studies and Chicano Studies because the programs are interdisciplinary.
Credit for cross-listed courses will apply to the General Studies categories according to the course prefix associated with the specific course the student chooses. For example, although CHS 200 and ANT 236 are cross-listed, if a student registers for CHS 200 the course will be applied toward the Humanities category; and if he/she registers for ANT 236 it will applied toward the Social/Behavioral Science category.

Contract Major/Minor Program
Even with the wide diversity of the majors and minors presently offered at Metropolitan State College, the need arises occasionally for a major that will not fit the existing catalog major or minor and which is individual in nature and meets the specific needs of the students. The Contract Major/Minor is an organized degree program written by the student in consultation with a Contract Major/Minor Advising Committee to enable the student to attain a specific, individual, educational objective which cannot be satisfied by any existing catalog major and/or minor programs.
25


Degrees and Programs Available at Metropolitan State College
The degree sought may be either a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science.
For further information contact the Adult Learning and Assessment Center.
Health Careers Science Program

School of Business
School of Business
The curricula of this School are designed to provide the student with a background of general education, familiarity with basic principles of business, and specialized knowledge in a selected field of business. The School offers two degrees -- the Three-Year Specialist Degree, and the Bachelor of Science. The Department of Economics offers a Bachelor of Arts degree, rather than a Bachelor of Science. Undergraduate programs within the School of Business are designed:
(1) To offer the student the opportunity to receive the baccalaureate degree. This degree program consists of a broad foundation in general education, a thorough grounding in basic business courses, and specific competence in one or more significant functional areas of business.
(2) To offer a diverse undergraduate program to meet the interests of those residents of the metropolitan area, and others, who desire to study business-oriented subjects without undertaking a degree program, and to meet the needs of the Denver business and professional community for continuing education programs.
(3) To strengthen students' powers of imaginative and innovative thinking, self-reliance, creative independent analysis and sensitivity to social and ethical values.
(4) To instill in each student a desire for learning that will continue after he has graduated and taken his place in the community.
(5) To convey to each student the spirit of pioneering, risk, and progress which are essential to the continued development of the American free enterprise system.
The philosophy of the School of Business is to devote its resources to continued growth of high quality, undergraduate programs. As needs arise and resources become available, additional programs or areas of specialization will be offered. Flexibility of course design, a prime requisite of the School of Business, will continue to dominate the planning of all new programs.
29


School of Business
Three-Year Specialist Degree
The Department of Business Education and Communications offers a three-year degree with a choice from three areas of emphasis currently in strong demand. The areas of emphasis take into consideration work experience credit, permit additional specialization and include a field of experience requirement for a partial on-the-job training. The student has the opportunity later to obtain a bachelors degree by completing limited additional requirements for a contract major.
Students seeking a three-year degree in business for any of the areas of emphasis given below must complete the following general studies requirements:

Business, Management and Urbanization
This area of emphasis will stress the interrelationships between the private business sector and the public policy and urban life designers and decision-makers. Public sector/private sector/ policy makers' cooperation, or the lack thereof, in the future, will have a direct effect on urban lifestyle. Issues to be addressed or focused upon in this emphasis are: the roles of business and urban government in the overall process of urbanization; the functions of managing business and managing government; the importance of sales tax revenues to both business and government and, with less governmental employment in the future, the changes that are in store for small and medium size businesses. This area of emphasis is expressly directed toward the student seeking an undergraduate major in management or administration of government organizations at the local, state or federal level, or in management positions in private industry.

Literature Emphasis
The literature emphasis offers a path of study that produces the skills widely recognized as those of the English major: the ability to work independently, to think with depth and sensitivity, and to write clearly. Literature majors are often valued because they know how to learn and how to apply what they learn. By concentrating their major efforts on reading literature, students receive not only the widest exposure to the best writing of different times and places, but the fullest opportunity to mature their understanding of complex literary stances and language strategies that explore influential ideas about the human condition. The literature major also learns to think carefully and to write clearly on complex subjects for a demanding reader.
Sophomore level courses provide an introduction to the variety of literary expression in historical context and an initial introduction to techniques and stances used by all writers. Upper division courses apply these techniques and others to great works, permitting greater depth of study.

Music
Metropolitan State College is an accredited institutional member of the National Association of Schools of Music. The Department of Music offers two NASM-accredited degree programs, Music Education and Music Performance, for students wishing to prepare themselves for careers in music. Students pursuing these majors are not required to fulfill a minor for graduation. In addition, the Contract Major is available for students seeking a more personalized degree program in music.
The Music Education degree program is designed to prepare students for careers teaching instrumental and/or choral music at the levels K-12. By taking an additional eighteen semester hours beyond the baccalaureate degree (EDU 419 and 429), the student becomes eligible for K-12 certification in the State of Colorado. With these additional eighteen hours, this degree program is fully accredited by the Colorado State Department of Education. Students seeking teaching credentials in music must satisfy all requirements of the Teacher Education Program in the Division of Education in addition to all requirements of the Department of Music.
The Music Performance degree program is designed to prepare students for careers in music performance, further graduate specialization or private studio teaching. In order to pursue this course of study, the student must demonstrate, through audition, the capability of developing a high level of musicianship in performance.
Students wishing to gain a broad, general coverage of the field of music may pursue the minor in Music. The department offers a wide range of courses, including some specifically designed for non-music students wishing to enhance their general appreciation and enjoyment of music. Non-music students may also participate in large and small music ensembles, including band, orchestra, choir and chamber music.
All students majoring or minoring in music must participate in the departmental advising program scheduled during the first week of each semester. Transfer students should be prepared to take placement examinations in the areas of music theory and music history and to perform an audition in their primary performance area. For advising, placement, and audition appointments, contact the Department of Music.
In addition to the above core requirement, music education majors
must select one of the following emphases:

Philosophy
Philosophy is the oldest of intellectual disciplines. Its questions are of the most enduring interest, because they are the most fundamental to our intellectual and practical concerns. As such it can be taken to be a critical investigation into the assumptions and implications associated with all ideas across all disciplines and, in this respect, it is inter-disciplinary in character. However, this type of inquiry requires technical concepts and methods and hence, it takes on the character of a specialized discipline. Philosophical inquiry is an interaction between speculative and
critical thought recognizing no preestablished limits in terms of the scope of either its interests or its critical examinations. Therefore, philosophy as a study program enlarges the students horizons of ideas throughout the various disciplines in the college, while simultaneously providing the critical skills necessary to analyze and synthesize these ideas. It encourages students to explore creatively the full range of philosophical options, to consider alternate points of view, and to penetrate deeply into profound issues. Because of the subject matter, attitudes, and methods employed in philosophy, the student will be much better prepared for leadership in personal life, civic responsibilities, and pursuit of a career.
In addition to offering a variety of courses for students who are planning to take only one or two courses in philosophy, the Department offers two programs both of which feature flexibility and individualized training:
1. A major for students seeking a solid, general training/background which can serve either as a basis for graduate studies in such varied areas as philosophy, the humanities, law, medicine, business, urban planning and development, etc., or as a basis for a career in which the specialized training required is provided by the employer, such as, careers in corporate management, government, politics, banking, education, etc.
2. A minor for students who have already chosen a career and seek to complement their specialized training/background with the opportunities afforded by philosophy to increase their career options and generally to increase the quality of their lives.
The Philosophy Program is now jointly offered by the faculties of MSC and UCD who have been combined into a single department. We encourage MSC students who either major or minor in philosophy to take appropriate UCD courses whenever such courses contribute to the requirements or the balance of their philosophy experience.

Speech Communication
Speech communication is one of the most important human qualities. Proficiency in one of the areas of speech opens up many careers to the graduate.
For instance, in mass communication, radio, television and film, a graduate might aspire to careers in On Air' operations, mass media ideas, promotion, public affairs, or radio-television sales. He or she might become a consultant in advertising, a specialist in instructional or educational television or in the public broadcasting service. Also, careers are open as broadcasting specialists in public relations, public information, business, industry and government.
Speech pathology graduates who meet the standards of the American Speech and Hearing Association may find careers in public and private schools, community clinics, hospitals, rehabilitation centers, private practice, colleges and universities, industry, or state and federal government agencies.
Graduates in rhetoric and public address have achieved success at law, industrial and organizational communication, educational administration, public relations, speech writing for political figures, teaching, public relations, and theology.
Professional and educational theatre occupations are open to theatre graduates with specialties in stagecraft, sound, engineering, script writing, directing and acting.
Organizational Communication: Meeting Planning, a new field, presents lucrative and satisfying careers to speech graduates specializing in this area of communication. Job opportunities are available in both associations and industry with some MSC graduates in Organizational Communication achieving success in all areas of government, industry, business and meeting planning.

Graduates of the program are prepared for employment in criminalistics and have completed the requirements for graduate school in chemistry, graduate school in criminalistics, medical school, dental school, and law school. No minor is required for the Criminalistics major.
Students electing the chemistry major with the Occupational Health and Safety emphasis will be trained in the recognition, evaluation, and control of hazards in the workplace. This area of emphasis includes chemistry courses equivalent to those required for the Bachelor of Arts major in chemistry as well as supporting science and mathematics courses. In addition, courses in Instrumental Analysis, Toxicology, Safety, and Occupational Health and Safety will be required. An internship during the junior or senior year is required and gives valuable practical experience. Graduates of the program are prepared for immediate employment in the field of occupational health and safety or the field of chemistry. Graduates in this area also meet the admissions requirements for medical school, dental school, veterinary school, and graduate school in industrial hygiene or chemistry.

Institute for Womens Studies and Services
Institute for Womens Studies and Services
Womens Studies
Women's Studies is organized on an interdisciplinary basis, utilizing the expertise of faculty members from many different departments. The courses offered are prepared especially for the program with the objectives of heightening womens awareness of themselves as human beings, permitting them to study closely the various historical and cultural patterns that have produced the social position in which they now find themselves, presenting to them the historical achievements of women in all fields, and exploring emerging needs and opportunities for women, with emphasis on the methods by which women can achieve success in these areas. These courses are of value to both women and men students and are especially recommended as a minor for students who are preparing for careers in Education, Guidance and Counseling, Law Enforcement, Human Services, Business Management, Advertising, Public Relations and Communications, Behavioral Science, Psychology, and many others. Men are welcome and are encouraged to take Womens Studies classes.
Minor in Womens Studies
This minor provides a stimulating option for the student who prefers to do this supporting study in an area not narrowly confined to a specific subject but rather in one which is broader in scope and more meaningful and relevant to the students personal needs and major degree area.
For the woman student it is an ideal minor because, no matter what her major is, she is and will remain a woman and, as such, will discover a variety of problems in both the social and working worlds. Womens Studies helps in understanding these problems, why they exist, and what can be done to overcome them. In addition, these courses aid in self-development, raising the confidence-level and ones sense of personhood, as well as providing sympathetic supportiveness from other students and understanding counseling from our Women's Studies faculty.
For men students, these courses provide a needed expansion of view that will enable them to better understand, appreciate, and work with the rapidly emerging new world force of women.

In addition to the core courses, nine (9) semester hours of electives acceptable to, or taught through the Department will be required, bringing the total number of semester hours credit for a womens studies minor to 24. These courses, some of which are interdisciplinary, will be selected in consultation with members of the Womens Studies staff and approved by the institute.
The Contract Major in Womens Studies
A contract major in Womens Studies may be arranged in consultation with the Womens Studies Advisor and formation of a faculty advisory committee in conjunction with The Adult Learning and Assessment Center. The demand for such majors, to meet growing career opportunities in the community (managing Womens Centers and Abused Wife Shelters, community counseling and consulting, developing workshops and special programming for women in industry and government, affirmative action positions, as a secondary teaching area or as an
undergraduate degree for students going on to the study of law, medicine, etc.), has led the Institute for Womens Studies to begin developing a standard major which will be included in the catalog offerings at a future date. If the B.A. is to be a terminal degree, the department strongly recommends a double major, in most instances, to create a tailor-made degree preparing the student specifically for a chosen career area. Such double majors might very effectively be combined with Management, Psychology, Education, Nursing, Human Services, Health Services, Law Enforcement, Advertising, Public Relations, Marketing, and many other areas, qualifying the student with a preparation uniquely oriented to working in numerous positions relating to women. Womens Studies courses are supplemented every semester by new offerings from Womens Studies, plus interdisciplinary offerings suitable for our students. Students should check their schedule for these other courses, or speak with the Institutes staff.
Interdisciplinary Electives (Offered as omnibus courses with variable credit except as indicated). These are a few of several such courses:

The purpose of the programs in education is to provide systematic and comprehensive preparation for the teaching profession. Students in these programs must meet the general studies minimums and satisfy all other requirements for a Bachelor's Degree stipulated earlier in this Bulletin.
Colorado law affecting teacher certification may be changed in the period during which this bulletin is in effect. Students should contact the Teacher Education Department for modifications.
The Department of Teacher Education accepts no course work older than 7 years as substitutes for required courses in the certification sequence and in certain instances may not accept more recent coursework if there have been significant changes in content in more recent years.
All students enrolled at Metropolitan State College who wish to prepare for teaching careers and be certified by the Colorado Department of Education are required to pass the California
Achievement Test in mathematics, spelling and language usage. A score at or above the 75th percentile must be attained. Students must also pass a public speaking course within a grade of 'B' or better or satisfactorily complete an oral examination. Students should take speech as a part of their General Studies. These tests are in addition to other requirements for admission to the professional training, as listed in this Bulletin.
No student may be placed in a field experience until she/he has taken the early assessment battery at least once. No student may be certified to teach until all examinations are successfully completed.
Students who fail one or more of the examinations will be notified so that appropriate remedial instruction can be recommended to them. They will also be provided with a list of remedial resources for each area in which remediation is needed. Students are expected to take the initiative to seek out these resources and bring their skills in the identified areas up to an acceptable level. Students may take the examination(s) no more than four times within five years.

The minor is an interdisciplinary program sponsored by Chicano Studies, the Teacher Education Department, the Modern Language Department, and the Reading Department. The principal objective of the Bilingual-Bicultural minor is to prepare future teachers who will be able to conduct all phases of classroom instruction in a bilingual and bicultural setting. In the developmental sequence, the minor will provide the potential teacher with a background of the Mexican heritage and with an understanding of present day Hispano/Chicano culture. Proficiency in the Spanish language is required of all students before they complete the minor. This proficiency will prepare the teacher to understand and further develop the native tongue of bilingual-bicultural children, while offering a second language to many other children. In addition, the minor will provide the teacher with sufficient field and academic experiences and resources in order to develop, implement, and evaluate curricular methods,
techniques, and materials in the bilingual-bicultural classroom. For students who do not student teach in a bilingual-bicultural program, the Practicum in Bilingual-Bicultural Education will be required.

Parenting Education
The purpose of the Parenting Education minor is two-fold. First, the program is designed to provide students entering professions where they will deal with children and families with the information and skills necessary to conduct parenting education programs. Second, the program addresses a need identified in the community for people with specific preparation for the role of parent educator. Many agencies offer or are interested in offering parent education programs, yet no specific preparation for that role has been available. This minor is designed both to make the field of parent education more credible by providing students with education for that role, and to give students a set of skills that are increasingly in demand, but rarely found.
This minor is seen as particularly appropriate for students entering family- and child-related fields, including (but not limited to): Education, Health Care Management, Human Services, Law Enforcement (especially juvenile justice), Nursing (and Nurse Practitioner programs), Psychology, Sociology, Social Work, Speech, and Womens Studies. People entering these fields might well be in a position to develop and conduct parent education programs; a minor in Parenting Education should serve them well in the employment market. Other fields, also, might provide

Division of Education
opportunities to utilize this background; parent education happens in settings ranging from churches to industry, and is not limited to educational settings in the usual sense.
The Parenting Education minor encompasses three areas of preparation. One set of classes is intended to give students basic information necessary to effective parenting (child development, parenting techniques, family management, health care and so on). The second facet of the program gives students the skills necessary for developing and conducting parent education programs (group techniques, program development, counseling techniques, etc.). The third component of the program entails actual field experience working in parent education programs; this experience is incorporated into a number of classes and is the central component of the final course in the minor. A field experience is required in the last semester. Placement opportunities include parent education in hospitals, social service agencies, public and private schools, and business and industry. Students work closely with a PAR advisor to ensure an appropriate field placement.

Reading
The Reading Department offers reading improvement courses for all students and a reading minor for early childhood, elementary and secondary education majors.
The reading improvement courses emphasize development of vocabulary, comprehension, study skills, and rate. A well-equipped Reading Laboratory is used to reinforce classroom instruction. The Reading Laboratory contains materials for use in improving comprehension, vocabulary, and study skills as well as machines for improving reading speed. Any student may use the Laboratory. Students enrolled in the reading improvement courses work on areas identified by a diagnostic reading test administered in each class at the beginning of the semester. Many colleges and universities have used the MSC Laboratory as a model in establishing their reading programs.
92


The reading minor is designed to produce well-trained classroom teachers. In the sophomore and junior years, students take course work in methods and techniques of teaching reading and receive supervised experience teaching groups of children in a school classroom setting.
In the senior year, students learn to administer a complete reading diagnosis, write a comprehensive case report based on the study of current remedial theory, develop materials for students with reading difficulties, and work on a one-to-one basis with children who have severe reading problems in our reading clinic.

Division of Engineering Technology
Division of Engineering Technology
The Division of Engineering Technology provides technical education to prepare graduates for employment in a wide variety of technological fields. Engineering technology requires the application of scientific knowledge and engineering methods, combined with the necessary technical skills to carry out and support engineering and technical activities. The programs include courses in Humanities and Social Sciences to broaden the students' general education. The various fields housed in this Division offer great opportunities for women, due to their demonstrated ability in technical areas and the demands on the part of industry for women with technological skills.
The Division of Engineering Technology offers degreed programs in Civil, Electronic, and Mechanical Engineering Technology; Industrial Technology; Industrial Marketing; Surveying; Technical Communications; and Technical Management; Aviation Management and Professional Pilot.
Department of Aerospace Science
Colorado is one of the nation's aerospace centers. Military installations, major aerospace industries, increased interest in private and corporation flying, and the airlines that serve Denver provide employment opportunities. Local Federal Aviation Administration and other Government offices offer excellent sources for information. Because of this proximity, students also have the opportunity to visit these facilities and to take courses that are taught by personnel from the various organizations. The Baccalaureate Degree programs described below have been carefully planned to meet the needs of both the student and of industry. All of the technical courses have been developed in cooperation with the Federal Aviation Administration, and prospective employers; students completing them are eligible to take a variety of FAA examinations leading to certification.
The Aviation Management Program prepares the graduate to enter a wide variety of administrative positions within the various segments of the aviation industry.
The Airframe and Powerplant (A&P) courses are not offered by Metropolitan State College. However, students holding a valid FAA Airframe and Powerplant certificate may apply for 30 hours of credit to apply toward a BS degree providing certain validation papers are presented with the application.
All programs in the Department of Aerospace Science have been developed to meet the College Aviation Accreditation Guidelines of the University Aviation Association.
The "Airway Science" emphasis is an approved FAA Program. Upon completion of the requirements, which include the Systems Management Minor, a student can be registered with the FAA Airway Science Directory in Washington, D.C. As new employees are needed in a variety of FAA related positions, they may be contacted through this directory. Students majoring in any of the "Airway Science emphases, must minor in Systems Management.
Bachelor of Science
The Department of Aerospace Science offers baccalaureate degree programs with majors in the following areas:
Aviation Management (AMG)
General Aviation Emphasis Airway Science Management Emphasis Aviation Maintenance Emphasis Airway Science Maintenance Management Emphasis Professional Pilot (PPT)
General Aviation Emphasis
Flight Engineer Emphasis
Airway Science Aircraft Systems Management
Emphasis
Minors
Aviation Management (AMG)
Professional Pilot (PPT)
Airframe and Powerplant Mechanics (APL)
These programs combine a thorough, practical and technical training background with a general college education to prepare a graduate for a wide variety of careers in the aerospace industry. These four-year baccalaureate degree programs have been developed upon the two-plus-two concept (a B.S. degree program built upon a AAS two-year degree). This concept makes it extremely easy for a community/junior college graduate in an aerospace program to transfer to MSC and earn a Bachelor of Science degree in our aviation program. In order to be awarded the Bachelor of Science degree, the student must comply with the Colleges general requirements for the Bachelor's degree listed in this Bulletin under Programs of Study and Degree Requirements.
FAA Approved Ground School
MSC Aerospace Science Department is a fully certified and approved Ground School for the Private, Instrument and Commercial FAA Ratings. Approved by the Federal Aviation Administration. Veterans Administration flight students should see the Aerospace Science department chair for information on approved flight training program.
Flight Courses
Flight training is contracted for, by the student with the flight training schools under contract with MSC. In order to enroll in all flight courses and receive credit, the student must fly with MSCs contract flight schools.
The cost of the flight training is in addition to regular tuition and college services fees. This cost will vary depending upon how frequently the student is able to fly during the semester and how much total time the student requires to gain the necessary proficiency. The College instructor helps the student achieve an understanding of the relationship of flight theory to flight practice, in order to acquire the knowledge required to meet FAA certification standards. Flights are scheduled by the student with the contract flight training school. All flight training normally must be completed during the appropriate academic semester to receive credit for the course during that period.
Credit-by-Examination Procedures
The basic provision for obtaining credit-by-examination (a maximum of 30 semester hours of credit) is outlined in this Bulletin under Academic Information. The following procedures are established by the Department of Aerospace Science to implement this provision.
1. A student entering MSC for the first time must make application for Credit by Examination during the first three weeks of the first Semester. All examinations must be completed within the first semester.
2. A student will not be approved to take a course of a lower number than any course she or he has taken previously.
3. If a student is registered for, but has not completed a higher-numbered course, the examination for the lower numbered course must be completed within the first three weeks of the semester.
