AURARIA HIGHER EDUCATION CENTER
Students who attend college on the Auraria Campus do so In a most unusual location. The campus combines in one place reminders of the regions history with hints of its future promise.
In the mid-nineteenthcentury,thousands of pioneers traveled toDenverCity. Many of them settled where the waters of Cherry Creek ran into the Platte River. Others struck roots in a part of the settlement called Auraria, now the site of The Auraria Higher Education Center.
It was in the late 1960s that the state chose the Auraria location as an area for preserving much of that heritage. A cluster of sixteen restored Victorian-era buildings serves as a hub for the campus. St. Cajetan's, a mission-style structure, has become the campus auditorium. Emmanuel Gallery displays modern student art in the oldest standing structure in Denver. A newly built shopping center Tivoli Denver, just west of the campus, preserves much of the early-day brewery that once stood on the site.
These reminders of the past exist side by side with seventeen modern buildings designed to accommodate the 33,000 students who share the Auraria campus.
The Auraria Higher Education Center houses the Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State College, and the University of Colorado at Denver.
DENVER, COLORADO
Aurarias combination of old and new fittingly serves Denvers needs. The Denver metropolitan area ranks third in growth among major areas in the United States. The population will grow to two and a half million by the year 2000.
With growth comes prosperity, zest and exuberance. Some 48 percent of the present population is between the ages of 25 and 44 years. Annual retail sales of $20.5 billion put Denver sixth in the nation in average retail sales per household.
Fast-paced energy, aerospace, and engineering industries have supplanted gold as a lure, but the pioneering spirit remains. Tourism is a major business. Denver attracts some 4 million tourists a year.
Major entertainment attractions radiate from Auraria. Within walking distance of the campus are Mile High Stadium (home of the N.F.L. Broncos), McNichols Sports Arena (home of the N.B.A. Nuggets), Currigan Exhibition Hall, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER
HISTORY
State legislators fashioned Community College of Denver (CCD) to meet specific educational needs expressed by the local urban community.
In 1967 (House Bill 1448), Colorado constructed a system of community colleges to operate under a State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education.
The initial college so created, Community College of Denver, operated from a base of three campuses (North, West, and Auraria) to serve a five-county geographical area (Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Denver, and Jefferson).
In 1968, students enrolled on the first of the three campuses, North Campus. They attend classes in relocatable buildings at East 62nd Avenue and Downing Street.
A permanent North Campus building was constructed some nine years later at 112th Avenue and Lowell Boulevard. North Campus is now Front Range Community College. The West Campus traces its existence from 1969. First called Red Rocks Campus, the college is now known as Red Rocks Community College.
A downtown site for the third campus was deliberately chosen to make education as accessible as possible to those who live and work in Denver proper.
From its start in 1970, when it operated out of several rented buildings, CCD has provided the core city with education conveniently close to home. The permanent location in the Auraria Higher Education Center Complex, established in 1976, provided no exception.
Similar thinking guided formation of a center for those who live in Aurora. Once an extension of Auraria, the Aurora Education Center became in 1983 a separate college-Community College of Aurora, 791 Chambers Road, Aurora.
When House Bill 1187 (July 1985) dissolved the Community College of Denver System (CCDS) and replaced it with three separate, independent colleges, Denver-Auraria Community College became the present Community College of Denver (CCD).
The same legislation also provided for recognition by honoring centers of excellence among Colorado colleges. In the fall of 1985, the Developmental Studies Division of CCD was accorded this honor.

STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES
Admission implies a recognition that the student should respect the rights of others and observe moral and civil laws. Interference with the normal processes of education in the classroom or elsewhere on the campus will be regarded as unacceptable conduct which warrants suspension or dismissal. The success of the college in attaining its objectives is conditioned by the good will, integrity, and honor of its students.
Community College Council has approved a document which contains a definition of education, a joint statement on rights, freedoms, and responsibilities of students, and rules of procedure in student disciplinary matters. This document provides guidelines necessary to ensure the rights of all members of the college community, including the right to secure educational benefits and services without regard to sex, race, national origin, religion, handicap or age. The college has a specific due process procedure. This procedure is available in the Student Activities offices.
A student enrolling in the college assumes an obligation to conduct himself in a manner compativle with college objectives. Regulations of the college are based upon respect for the rights of others and observance of civil law and current moral standards. On-campus conduct for which students are subject to discipline falls into the following categories:
.... Dishonesty, such as cheating, plagiarism, or knowingly furnishing false information to the college.
.... Forgery, alteration, or misuse of college documents, records or identification.
9


Obstruction or disruption of teaching, administration, disciplinary procedures or other college activities, including its public service functions, or other authorized activities.

TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDIT TO FOUR-YEAR INSTITUTIONS
Students whose primary interest in attending the Community College of Denver is to prepare for transfer to a four-year college or university should familiarize themselves with the general education requirements of that institution. Since graduation requirements vary among institutions, it is important to obtain assistance from an advisor in planning a transferable program of study. A Transfer Guide to Colorado colleges and universities is available in the Educational Planning and Advising Center.
In addition, each major field of study at a particular institution has specific course requirements. Therefore, it is extremely important for students to follow a well-planned course of study. Students should follow a prescribed transfer program (recommended by an advisor) in order to make a smooth transition to the four-year college or university.
TUITION, FEES, & REFUNDS
TUITION
Tuition is determined by the State Board forCommunity Colleges and Occupational Education and is subject to change. Students should consult the semester class schedule for the semester they wish to attend to determine the actual tuition charges by credit hour.
Complete payment of tuition and fees is necessary for enrollment and permission to attend class.
FEES
All enrolled students may be asked to pay a student fee up to a maximum of $1.30 per credit hour. This money is used for various student activities and benefits, including student publications, operation of student government, cultural activities, recreational activities, clubs and organizational activities. Expenditure of student fee monies is made with the approval of the Student Government Association. Students enrolled in certain courses may be required to purchase individual supplies and materials and to rent uniforms.
In addition to the activity fee, every registered student is assessed $19 per semester. This amount is for payment for the construction of the Auraria Student Center and Child Care Center.
TUITION POLICY FOR SENIOR CITIZENS
Persons over the age of 60 who are classified as in-state residents may take regularly scheduled courses for credit provided they pay 50 percent of the tuition charges. If the senior citizen does not wish credit, no tuition will be charged, and the student may sit in a,class on a space available basis. The student activity fee and the parking fee (if applicable) will be assessed only when a senior citizen is seeking credit for a course. Seniors must pay regular charges for community service non-credit offerings. The Admissions and Records Office in Room 133 of the South Classroom building can provide further information.


RESIDENCY CLASSIFICATION FOR TUITION PURPOSES
At the time of application for admission, students are classified for tuition purposes as either in-state residents or out-of-state residents according to provisions of Colorado law.
Any student who has been classified as a nonresident and who can provide further information to qualify as a resident, must obtain from the Registrars office a petition form for in-state status. A copy of the regulations governing residency classification is a part of the petition. Students should be aware of the published deadline for petitions for each academic term. It is the students responsibility to ensure that petitions and all supportive documentation are on file in the Registrars Office by the published deadline. The Registrars Office cannot assume responsibility for mailed petitions which arrive after the deadline, and petitions will not be accepted after the published date.
The final decision regarding tuition status is determined by the Dean of Student Services. Changes in classification will not occur after the published deadline and petitions received after the deadline will not be considered until the following semester. Changes in classification, whether from out-of-state to in-state or the reverse, shall become effective at the time of the students next registration. All questions regarding residency classification should be addressed to the Dean.
Add Drop Policy and Fees
The final date to add a course is a predetermined census date. This date is printed in each semester class schedule.
The final date to drop a course is two weeks prior to the end of the semester. Exceptions to this policy may be made only upon approval by the Dean of Student Services.
A transaction occurs each time a student processes a request through the Business Office; there is no limit to the number of requests processed during each transaction. Example: A student processing four add/drop changes through the Business Office at the same time will be charged $5.00. A student processing four different times will be charged $20.00 ($5.00 times 4 transactions equal $20.00).
Financial Obligations of Students
The financial obligations of students -- such as payments for tuition, fees, and books -- are due and payable on the published specified date or at the times the obligations are incurred. Under unusual circumstances or in emergencies when it may be impossible for a student to paythe total charges at the proper time, special arrangements may be considered for approval by the Business Office.
Withdrawal Procedure
Students are admitted under the assumption that they will remain until the end of the semester or longer, unless unforseen circumstances force them to withdraw.
When it becomes necessary to initiate a complete withdrawal, students should check with the Registrars Office for the proper procedures and to obtain the necessary forms.
Refund Policy
The refund policy for the Community College of Denver is based on the fact that tuition provides approximately 25 percent of the cost of education. A student enrolled in a class reserves a space that would be otherwise available to someone else. Also, a students original enrollment represents a sizable cost to the college.
To be eligible for tuition refunds, students must officially drop the credit hours and apply for the refund. There is usually a processing period of approximately three tofour weeks from the time a student requests a tuition refund to the time it is actually mailed.
There is no refund for credits beyond 10 hours, within the 10 to 15 hourcredit range, if no additional tuition was paid for those credits hours. Otherwise refunds are made as follows:
1. 100 percent tuition and fees will be refunded for courses dropped between the day of registration and on or before the first day of the class.
2. A 75 percent refund of tuition only for total or partial withdrawal from the first day of classes through the census date 12th day of the term. No tuition or fee refund of less than $1.00 will be made.
3. No refund will be made after the 12th day of the term (census date).
4. No tuition or student fee shall be charged to a student for adding or dropping classes unless the difference between the number of credits dropped or added takes that student beyond the amount the student has originally paid. Afterthe 12 th day of the term, a $5.00 service fee will be charged for each transation.
5. Students are entitled to a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees paid for any class(es) cancelled by the college. This refund must be initated by the student, however, through the Registrars Office.
A student is not considered officially registered until his class schedule has been processed by the Business Office. 11
