Believing that educated citizens will make a significant and positive impact on a local community and local economy, the College strives for excellence in transfer education and occupational programs, pledges a sensitivity to the changing needs of area employers and seeks new and effective ways of extending its campus throughout its service area.
COLLEGE MISSION
The College shares a campus, the Auraria Higher Education Center, with Metropolitan State Col lege and the University of Colorado at Denver. Among the Auraria institutions, the Community College of Denver pledges responsibility for the following:
Transfer courses for students pursuing a baccalaureate degree;
Occupational programs for those seeking job-entry skills or upgrading;
General education;
Remedial instruction and developmental studies;
Continuing education and community services;

NOTICE OF NONDISCRIMINATION
Community College of Denver does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, national origin, sex, age or handicap in admission or access to, or treatment or employment in, its educational programs or activities. Inquiries concerning Title VI, TITLE IX and Section 504 may be referred to the Office of Personnel Services, 1111 W. Colfax, Denver, CO 80204 (556-3656) or to the Office for Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education, 1961 Stout Street, Denver, CO 80294.
HISTORY
In September, 1970, the college opened its doors, operating in several rented buildings in central Denver. Since that time the Community College of Denver (CCD) has provided the core city with education conveniently close to home.
In December of 1975, CCD moved to its present site downtown, sharing location and facilities with Metropolitan State College and the University of Colorado at Denver on the Auraria campus.
While the Auraria Higher Education Center is new in concept, the site historically has been intertwined with the development of Denver. In the mid-nineteenth century, the news of gold brought thousands of fortune-seekers to "Denver City." Many settled where the waters of Cherry Creek tumbled into the Platte River, while other prospectors struck roots in a part of the settlement called Auraria.
Much of the heritage of the original site has been preserved to co-exist with 17 modern buildings, designed to accommodate over 33,000 students. A cluster of 16 restored Victorian-era buildings are the campus hub. St. Cajetan's, a mission-style structure, is now the campus auditorium. The oldest standing structure in Denver, Emmanuel Gallery, displays modern student art. Preserving the flavor of yesteryear, the landmark Tivoli Brewery, adjacent to the campus, has been restored into an elegant shopping center.
CCD is within walking distance of Larimer Square and downtown Denver; Mile High Stadium, home of the NFL Broncos; McNichols Sports Arena, home of the NBA Nuggets; Currigan Exhibition Hall; and, the Denver Center for the Performing Arts.
CCD is the only community college within the city limits of Denver, one of the fastest growing metropolitan areas in the United States. Rapidly developing energy, aerospace, engineering and high-tech industries have supplanted gold as a lure, but the pioneering spirit remains in the "Queen City of the Rockies." Tourism, a major Colorado industry, attracts 4 million visitors a year to the Denver area and the nearby Rocky Mountains.

GRADE SPSATISFACTORY PROGRESS
Some courses, designated as open-entry/open-exit, may extend beyond the normal end of a semester since they are designed on a master-learning basis.
Upon successful completion of such a course, unit credit and a grade will be awarded. Regulations for such courses are:
1. In courses for which this grade is authorized, the SP will be given to:
a. the student who has attended for a full term, and who has shown satisfactory progress, but has not yet mastered required course objectives; or,
b. the student who, under the college's continuous enrollment policy, has enrolled late in the semester and is making satisfactory progress, but has not had sufficient time to master required course objectives.
2. A student may be required to re-register for a course in which he/she received an SP grade if the course work is not completed by the end of the next consecutive fall or spring semester. When the remaining time needed for completion is short, however, or when other extenuating circumstances occur, the dean may waive the requirement for re-enrollment.
GRADE IINCOMPLETE
1. The student has not been able to complete the course requirements due to extenuating circumstances.
2. Two-thirds to three-fourths of the course work has been satisfactorily completed.
3. The student must, before the end of the term, make arrangements with the i nstructor to complete the course.
4. The student must complete the necessary course work prior to the end of the next consecutive fall or spring semester.
GRADE WWITHDRAWAL
The student has officially withdrawn from the college.
GRADE AUAUDIT
The student has audited the course.
GRADE AWADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL
The student has attended one or more class sessions, but too few to be appropriately evaluated.
CREDIT/NO CREDIT
Some courses are offered on a credit/no credit basis. Upon successful completion of such a course, unit credit will be awarded. However, courses taken on a credit/no credit basis are not used in the computation of a student's grade-point average (GPA). Regulations for such courses are:
1. In authorized credit/no credit courses, the credit grade is granted for performance which is equivalent to the letter grade of "C" or better.
2. Credit/no credit graded courses must be designated by the respective division. Courses falling into this category will be specified each term by CCD in the class schedules. Departments may require majors to obtain letter grades in that department's major subjects.
REPEATING A COURSE
Students who receive a "D", "NC" or "F" grade in a course may retake the same course. The higher of the two grades received will be computed in the student's transcript GPA. However, the transcript will indicate the grades for


18
ACADEMIC STANDARDS
both courses. Students must file a request with the Admissions and Records Office to repeat a course under this policy, no later than the published deadline date for add/ drops. A student may repeat a course only once.
DEAN'S HONORS' LIST
Students are selected for the Dean's Honors' List during the semester preceding their graduation from CCD. To be eligible for this academic honor, a student must be completing at least 30 semester credit hours in a certificate program, or be completing the requirements for one of the four associate degrees. In addition, the student must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.85, based on all courses attempted while enrolled at CCD. Selection for the Dean's Honors' List is printed on the student's permanent academic transcript.
PHI THETA KAPPA
Phi Theta Kappa, the national scholastic honorary society for two-year community and junior colleges, opened a chapter at CCD in spring, 1987. Phi Theta Kappa recognizes student academic excellence at CCD and promotes academic community at the college.
To be eligible for membership, students must have a 3.5 grade point average after completing 15 or more credit hours of college-level work, and carry three or more credit hours during the current academic year. Phi Theta Kappa members are honored at graduation for their outstanding academic achievements.
Faculty sponsors of CCD's Phi Theta Kappa Chapter are Dr. Jesse Cheng-Fan I and Associate Professor Susan Simons. For more information, interested and eligible students should call Dr. I, Ms. Simons, or Patty Rebne, Director of Student Activities.
VETERAN S ACADEMIC STANDARDS OF PROGRESS
The following policy applies to all student veterans and other eligible persons receiving VA benefits.
1. GRADE POINT REQUIREMENTS
Veteran students are required to maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 for all course work. Veteran's whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 will be placed on academic probation for the following term. If the GPA is not raised to 2.0 during the probation term, the veteran will be suspended for one academic term. Reinstatement will occur only after approved counseling.
Suspension of the veteran student under the Veterans' Academic Standards of Progress Policy will result in CCD's not certifying enrollment to the Veterans Administration. Veterans in this status may still attend CCD; however, they will be subject to the provisions of the Academic Standards
of Progress Policy requirements for continuation of enrollment.
2. OTHER SPECIAL GRADES
U Gradeindicates that the student "audited" the course. No credit is allowed for audited courses, nor is the grade certifiable to the VA.
I Gradeindicates "incomplete." Please refer to the Evaluation and Grading policy in the catalog. An incomplete or "I" grade must be made up before the end of the following term (fall or spring). For veterans, if an "I" grade is not completed in this required period, the "I" will remain on the transcript, and the veteran's certification will be adjusted back to the beginning date of the term in which the "I" grade was received.
SP Gradeindicates "satisfactory progress," which will be treated the same as an "I", incomplete, grade.
3. ATTENDANCE
Veterans' attendance records showing each absence from regularly scheduled classes are required, and CCD is required to document such attendance records.
If a student veteran stops attending class, but does not officially withdraw, he is considered as "non-attending" and may be dropped administratively. VA certification will be adjusted accordingly. An administrative drop will be initiated by the instructor.
4. MITIGATING CIRCUMSTANCES
(As defined by P.L. 94-502) Mitigating circumstances which directly hinder eligible veteran's or other person's pursuit of a course, are judged to be out of the student's control. Following are some general categories of mitigating circumstances (not all-conclusive):
a. Serious illness of the eligible veteran or person.
b. Serious illness or death in the eligible veteran's or other person's immediate family.
c. Immediate family or financial obligations which require a change in terms, or place of employment, precluding pursuit of course work.
d. Discontinuance of a course by the college.
e. Active military duty, including activeduty fortraining.
f. Withdrawal from a course or receipt of a non-punitive grade upon completion of a course due to unsatisfactory work may be considered mitigating circumstances if the student can demonstrate good faith pursuit of the course up to the point of withdrawal or completion. The student must submit evidence that he/she applied for tutorial aid, consulted a Veterans Administration counselor, or consulted a school academic counselor or advisor regarding an attempt to remedy the unsatisfactory work before withdrawal or completion.
When mitigating circumstances prevail, CCD will attempt to intervene on behalf of the veteran with the Veterans Administration.


AN OVERVIEW OF INSTRUCTIONAL PROGRAMS
The Community College of Denver offers four associate degrees: The Associate of Arts (A. A.), the Associate of Science (A.S.), the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) and the Associate of General Studies (A.G.S.).
ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE
(University Parallel, Transfer Program)
An Associate of Arts Degree (A.A.) provides a learning foundation in communications, social science, arts or humanities. Although some students work toward the Associate of Arts Degree for purposes of personal enrichment, many others plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities in order to continue their work toward baccalaureate degree and pre-professional training in such fields as law, education, the arts and social sciences. The Associate of Arts Degree is sometimes referred to as a University Parallel or Transfer degree. CCD provides a wide variety of course offerings which parallel those found in the first two years of a university and which satisfy lower division (freshman/sophomore) requirements.
A.A. areas of emphasis are available in the following:
Art History
Behavioral Sciences Music
Communications Political Science
Economics
ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE DEGREE
(University Parallel, Transfer Program)
The Associate of Science Degree (A.S.) provides a learning foundation in mathematics and the sciences. Although some students work toward the Associate of Science Degree for personal enrichment, many plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue work toward baccalaureate degree and pre-professional training in such fields as engineering, medicine, biology, chemistry and physics. The Associate of Science Degree is sometimes referred to as a University Parallel or Transfer degree. CCD provides a wide variety of science and mathematics course offerings which parallel those found in the first two years of a university and which satisfy lower division (freshman/ sophomore) requirements.
A.S. areas of emphasis are available in the following:
Biology Chemistry Computer Science Mathematics Physics
Pre-Engineering
Medical Cluster Pre-Dental Pre-Medical Pre-Nursing Pre-Veterinary
ASSOCIATE OF APPLIED SCIENCE DEGREE
The Associate of Applied Science Degree (A.A.S.) prepares students for entry level employment in a given occupation or upgrades/stabilizes employable skills.
While not intended for transfer to a baccalaureate degree program, all A.A.S. degrees have limited transferability. In each A.A.S. program, some of the courses are articulated with and accepted by at least one specific baccalaureate program. In some instances, A.A.S. graduates transfer to full junior standing within a specific, articulated baccalaureate program. See your Transfer Guide and talk with your advisor for specific details.
