GENERAL INFORMATION

History
In 1967 Colorado created what is known today as the Community College of Denver (CCD). Responding to the growing need for comprehensive, low-cost, post-secondary public education in the Denver metro area, the state legislature passed House Bill 1449, establishing a tri-campus Community College of Denver System with campuses to be located in Denver, Adams and Jefferson counties. Community College of Denver's Auraria campus opened its doors to students in fall 1970 in a renovated auto showroom at 11th and Acoma. Enrollment increased so rapidly that the college expanded into rental store fronts near the main building.
In 1974 the state legislature passed House Bill 1163, creating the Auraria Higher Education Center, a 171 acre campus bordering downtown Denver on the west bank of Cherry Creek, originally the site of the frontier town of Auraria settled in 1858. The act specified that Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State College of Denver (MSCD) and University of Colorado at Denver (UCD) would share facilities at this historic location. CCD moved to its new quarters on the Auraria campus in December 1975.
Almost from its beginning, CCD at Auraria provided educational outreach services to the City of Aurora due east of Denver. In 1979, this outreach center became Aurora Education Center, a fourth entity in the CCD system. In January 1983, the Colorado State Board for Community College and Occupational Education authorized name changes for all three CCD system campuses to reinforce their respective identities. The North campus became Front Range Community College,
West Campus became Red Rocks Community College and the Auraria Campus became Denver Auraria Community College. In the same year the Aurora Education Center became the independent Community College of Aurora. Including Arapahoe Community College to the south, four suburban community colleges are located within 12 miles to the north, south, east and west of CCD.
In July 1985 the State Board dissolved the Community College of Denver System and created three stand-alone community colleges in its place. Front Range Community College and Red Rocks Community College retained their names. Denver Auraria Community College became the Community College of Denver, at the same time assuming full responsibility for the systems fast-track skills center, the Technical Education Center (TEC) located at 6221 Downing in Adams County, six miles northeast of Auraria. TEC, now known as TEC North, is an open entry/open exit fast track training center that meets industry employment needs. Another training center, TEC East located at 3601 Martin Luther King Blvd., opened in Northeast Denver in 1991. An extension of TEC East, the Phillips Center, located at 3532 Franklin Street in the Cole neighborhood, opened in 1993. TEC West, located at 2420 W. 26th Ave. in the Diamond Hill Complex, also opened in 1993, the same year all TEC sites began offering traditional general education college courses.
As one of eleven colleges in the Colorado Community Colleges and Occupational Education System and the third largest, CCD is the only community college in the city and county of Denver and the only truly urban community college in Colorado. Moreover, it has the distinction of being the only community college in the nation that shares a campus with a four-year college and a university. At Auraria, Community College of Denver is responsible for all two-year programs, the awarding of all two-year degrees and occupational certificates and for implementing remedial instruction, adult basic education and GED preparation.
The 6000 plus students enrolled in CCD on the Auraria campus enjoy facilities rarely available at other community collegesa regional library, an expansive physical education building combined with an events center, and a student union with extensive accommodation for student activities. Impressive campus landscaping surrounds 16 restored Victorian buildings; 17 contemporary structures; St. Cajetan's mission style church, now an auditorium; and Emmanuel Gallery, the oldest standing structure in Denver used today as exhibition space for student and faculty art work. The Auraria campus is within walking distance of Larimer Square and downtown Denver; Mile High Stadium, home of the NFL Broncos; Coors Stadium, new home of the Colorado Rockies baseball team; McNichols Sports Arena, home of the NBA Nuggets; the Colorado Convention Center, and the Denver Complex for the Performing Arts.
An urban environment, a dedicated staff, a setting conducive to educational attainment, and an abundance of facilities make CCD one of the fastest growing public institutions of higher learning in the state.

COLLEGE POLICIES AND ACADEMIC STANDARDS


Student's Right to Know Information
Of the first-time college students who entered the Community College of Denver in the fall of 1988 and took six or more credits, 23 percent of degree seeking students graduated from degree programs and 61 percent of certificate seeking students graduated from certificate programs by 1991-92. Rates include students receiving degrees or certificates only at the Community College of Denver. Rates do not include students who transferred before graduation.
Academic Standards
Attendance
Regular and punctual attendance is expected of all students, and a complete record of attendance will be kept by each instructor for the entire length of each course. Students will be counted absent from missed class meetings beginning with the first official date of enrollment or the first day of classes, whichever is later.
Faculty may give a failing grade to any student who has a 15% or greater absence from a class starting from the first class meeting. The student is responsible for informing the instructor of the reason for an absence and for doing so in a timely fashion. The student, whether present or absent, is responsible for obtaining all material presented and completing all course assignments.
The attendance policy for certain programs such as health careers may differ from the general policy due to clinical requirements or requirements of approving agencies.
The student is responsible for properly processing a withdrawal.
Course Load
A full-time course load is 12-15 credits. Students who are registered for less than 12 credits are part-time students.
Eighteen credits is considered a heavy load. Twenty credits is the maximum load for all students without special permission of the instructional Division Dean.
Academic Standards of Progress
1. A student is required to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all course work attempted.
2. A student whose cumulative grade point average falls below the required 2.0 and who has attempted six or more credits will be placed on academic probation for the following term of enrollment.
3. A student who fails to raise the cumulative GPA to 2.0 by the end of the probationary instructional term will be considered for academic suspension for a minimum of one term.
4. A student placed on academic suspension will be required to meet with the Vice President for Student
Services to determine eligibility for continued enrollment.
5. A student who wishes to appeal suspension may appeal to the suspension review board. Decisions of the suspension review board are final.
Appeal Procedure
Students wishing to appeal academic suspension or seeking information about the appeal procedure, should contact the Office of the Vice-President for Student Services, 556-2413.
Financial Aid Standards of Progress
Financial Aid applicants must maintain satisfactory academic and measurable progress both prior to applying for aid and during the semesters aid is received. Only credit hours taken at Community College of Denver will be counted to determine satisfactory/measurable progress. For more complete information ask for a financial aid information handbook in the Office of Financial Aid, South Classroom Building, Room 135.
Veterans 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 grade point average of 2.0 for all course work. Veterans 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 CCDs 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
AU 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." An incomplete or "I" grade must be made up no later than the next consecutive 15 week semester. For veterans, if an "I" grade is not completed in this required period, the "I" will revert to a NC (no credit) and the veteran's certification will be adjusted back to the
COLLEGE POLICIES AND ACADEMIC
STANDARDS
17


beginning date of the term in which the "I" grade was received.
SP Grade indicates "satisfactory progress", which will be treated the same as an "I, incomplete grade.
3. Attendance
Veterans who stop attending class, but do not officially withdraw, may be dropped administratively. VA certification will be adjusted accordingly.
4. Mitigating Circumstances
(As defined by P.L. 94-502) Mitigating circumstances which directly hinder an 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 active duty for training.
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 CCD academic counselor or advisor in 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.

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 the following:
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.
Grade SP Satisfactory Progress
Some courses, designated as open-entry/open-exit, may extend beyond the normal end of a semester. Upon successful completion of such a course, unit credit and a grade will be awarded. Regulations for such courses are the following:
1. In courses for which this grade is authorized, the SP will be given in either of the following cases:
a. The student has attended for a full term and has shown satisfactory progress but has not yet mastered required course objectives.
b. The student 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 15 week semester. When the remaining time needed for completion is short or when other extenuating circumstances occur, the dean may waive the requirement for re-enrollment. Home study courses must be completed within a calendar year from the date of registration.

COLLEGE POLICIES AND ACADEMIC STANDARDS
19


Grade AU Audit
The student has audited the course.
Grade AW
Administrative Withdrawal
The student has attended one or more class sessions but too few to be appropriately evaluated. This grade should be given by the faculty, but may be given by the Dean or Vice President in certain cases.
Grade Point Average
The grade points measure the achievement of the student for the number of credits completed. To calculate the grade point average, multiply the number of grade points by the number of credits for each course. Total the credits and points, and divide the grade points by the credits.
A equals 4 grade points B equals 3 grade points C equals 2 grade points D equals 1 grade point F equals 0 grade points
The following example will enable the student to calculate a grade point average:
Course Credits Grade Points
ANT 111 Principles of Anthropology 3 A 12 (3 x 4)
BIO 111 General College Biology I 5 A 20 (5 x 4)
CIS 115 Intro to Computing 3 B 9 (3 x 3)
ENG 121 English Comp. Essay Writing 3 D 3 (3 x 1)
POS111 American Government _3 F 0 13 x 01
Totals: 17 41
Total grade points divided by total credits equals the cumulative grade point average. Therefore, the grade point average for the above example is 41 divided by 17 or 2.41.
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 both courses. Students must file a request with the Office of Registration and Records to repeat a course, no later than the published deadline date for add/drops. A student may repeat a course only once.
Recognition of Achievement or Continuing Education Units CCEU3
CCD offers many courses, conferences, workshops and seminars for upgrading job skills as well as for personal enrichment. Successful completion of courses of this type may result in the granting of a Recognition of Achievement or a CEU which may be requested from the appropriate instructional division.
Presidents Honors List
Students are selected for the Presidents 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 Presidents Honors List is printed on the student's permanent academic transcript.
Vice President's Honor List
Each semester students taking 6 or more credits with a GPA of 3.5 or above are selected for the Vice President's Honors List. Students are notified by mail of this honor. The Vice President's Honor List is printed on the student's academic transcript.
Dean's Honor List
Each semester students taking 6 or more credits with a GPA of 3.0 or above are selected for the Dean's Honors List. Students are notified by mail of this honor. The Dean's Honor List is printed on the student's academic transcript.

COLLEGE POLICIES AND ACADEMIC STANDARDS


Graduation
Requirements
Degree Requirements
All applicants for CCD degree programs must meet the following requirements. Exceptions may be approved by the Vice President for Instruction.
1. Complete a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit in approved course work.
2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C average). Courses counting toward the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of "C" or higher. Some programs, as stated in the current catalog, may require a student to earn at least a "C" in specific course work. Students should check with their instructional division or advisor for information regarding the minimum grade point average requirement.
3. Complete a minimum of 15 credits at CCD in the program area.
4. Complete the Academic Profile, a general education assessment during the final academic semester at the college.
5. Complete the Capstone course.
General Education Requirements
All associate degrees have general education requirements which meet goals for general education established by the State Board for Colorado Community College and Occupational Education:
1. To build skills for advanced and lifelong learning.
2. To expose students to the mainstream of thought and interpretation in the humanities, sciences, mathematics, social sciences, communications and the arts.
3. To integrate learning in ways that cultivate the student's broad understanding and ability to think about a large and complex subject, formulate and analyze valid concepts, solve problems and clarify values.
In addition, the following rationale for the AA/AS general education core curriculum was developed by AA/AS faculty and adopted by CCD, the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System and the Colorado Commission for Higher Education.
"General education addresses the needs of all students regardless of program area, degree sought, or majorsince all people share certain experiences and have certain life goals that are unrelated to any specific discipline of study. The core curriculum is that set of courses that satisfy the general education portion of the requirements for an Associate of Arts (AA),
an Associate of Science (AS), or an Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree. All courses in the core curriculum are designed to transfer to baccalaureate degree granting colleges and universities. Core courses will be academically rigorous and of such quality that transfer students may be assured of their ability to compete successfully upon transfer.
The offerings within the core curriculum are designed to stimulate students to think deeply, clearly, and logically about a variety of human questions. These offerings provide a balanced, broadly-based program that will require students to develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, to analyze, synthesize, and communicate information, and to use knowledge and technology intelligently and responsibly.
These core offerings:
expose students to the mainstreams of thought and interpretation in humanities, sciences, communications, mathematics, social sciences, and arts, and develop students' understanding of the interrelationships among these fields of study.
expand students' interpersonal, intercultural, and international understanding, and develop their perceptions of the evolving nature of societies, and the interdependence among all peoples.
develop students' skills in self-understanding, oral and written communication, numerical calculations, and reasoning to help them achieve personal independence.
develop students' skills in leadership and in group dynamics.
increase students' knowledge of the value of physical and environmental well-being to help them fulfill their roles as citizens within a free and changing society."
GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
21


Certificate Requirements
All CCD graduates of certificate programs must meet the following requirements. Exceptions may be approved by the Vice President for Instruction.
1. Complete the specified requirements of an approved vocational/technical program.
2. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C). Some programs, as stated in the current catalog, may require a student to earn at least a "C" in specific course work.

2. There is no limit on special topics courses allowed to count toward a degree. In individual cases, the limit will be determined by the program area. Students taking special topic courses should consult with their advisors as to how these credits will apply toward a degree.
Catalog Requirements for Graduation
Students may graduate under the catalog requirements listed for the academic year in which they were first enrolled. If students interrupt attendance for one year or more and then return, the catalog of the readmission year is the document of authority. If graduation requirements and policies should change, students may choose to follow the catalog of the year of initial entry or the current catalog. Students should be sure to obtain and keep a copy of the catalog published the year in which they enter or are readmitted.
The catalog should not be considered a contract between the Community College of Denver and any student. The College retains the right to cancel or change programs or course offerings where enrollments are insufficient or for any other reason. Every course listed in the catalog may not be offered every semester.
Petitioning for Waivers and/or Program Substitutions
Students who, due to extenuating circumstances, wish to petition for a waiver and/or substitution of program requirements must complete a "Waiver/Program Substitution Request Form." The form is available in each instructional division office.
The student should complete the request and have it approved by the program coordinator, the division dean, and the Vice President for Instruction. The form will then be kept on file in the Office of Registration and Records.

Programs
Associate of Arts Degree
University Parallel, Transfer Program
An Associate of Arts Degree (AA) 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 to continue their work toward baccalaureate degrees 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. The general education core requirements, when completed at CCD, meet the lower division general education requirements of all public baccalaureate colleges and universities in the state of Colorado. Students graduating with the AA degree may transfer into liberal arts programs in all public baccalaureate colleges and universities with junior standing. Courses to be counted towards the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of C or higher.
Student:
Performance
Objectives
for Transfer Education (AA Degree)
1. Students will plan and write well-structured compositions demonstrating the writing capabilities to express, inform, analyze, evaluate, persuade, argue, conduct research and use primary and secondary sources logically and stylistically.
2. Students will compose and deliver oral presentations, providing ideas and information and using delivery skills suitable to the topic, purpose and audience. Students will demonstrate an understanding of speeches and be able to evaluate speeches.
3. Students will read and think critically about a variety of interdisciplinary topics, demonstrating college-level reading skills in a variety of disciplines including humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences.
4. Students will demonstrate orally and in writing the critical thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
5. Students will analyze and use numerical data and qualitative reasoning skills including applying proper formulas to mathematical data and calculating results, illustrating quantitative data graphically, rearranging general formulas to solve for any term, and interpreting graphic data and assessing the importance of the portrayed trends.
AA Degree Program Entry
Students must apply for entry to the Associate of Arts Degree program. At the time of application, students do not have to identify an area of emphasis. Program application forms are in SO 134 and division offices. Obtain an Advising Transcript from the Registrar's office and attach to the program application. You will need assessment scores or equivalences (successful completion with C or better) for REA 003, MAT 105, REA 005 (study skills), and ENG 100. Meet with a faculty program advisor and obtain an authorized signature.
AA Degree
Program Requirements
Within the AA Degree, the College offers eleven possible areas of emphasis: Art, Behavioral Sciences, Communications, Economics, English/Literature, History, Humanities/Philosophy, Music, Photography, Political Sciences, or Theatre. The same course may not count both toward general education requirements and toward an area of emphasis. An area of emphasis consists of four identified courses in one academic area. If you do not select an area of emphasis or have fewer than 60 credit hours with your core courses and your area of emphasis, you should take transfer electives as needed to complete the 60 credit hours required for the Associate of Arts Degree. Up to 3 credits of physical education may apply toward this degree. All graduates of the Associate of Arts (AA) Degree must meet the following program requirements.

Associate of
General Studies Degree
CCD offers two types of Associate of General Studies Degrees. Both require the core lower division general education courses which transfer to all majors at all State baccalaureate colleges and universities. Only grades of C or better are acceptable for the core general education requirements. Up to 3 credits of physical education may apply toward this degree.
1. The Associate of General Studies-Generalist Degree (AGS-G).
In addition to the general education core requirements, the degree allows you to self-select 23 credits of transfer and/or career courses. The general education core courses fully meet the general education requirements of all baccalaureate professional schools. Transferability of the career courses is not guaranteed. If you select this option, consult with your advisor.
Entry Requirements. The AGS-G degree is the only degree which does not require application for program entry. All CCD certificate and degree-seeking students are classified as Associate of General Studies-Generalist students until they apply and are accepted into another certificate or degree program. Any CCD career/vocational course from any CCD campus may count as an elective for the AGS Generalist Degree.
2. All other Associate of General Studies (AGS) Degrees.
Most AGS degrees (with the exception of the AGS-G degree) are the result of articulation agreements and provide a transfer option for students in vocational programs. The
general education core courses fully meet the general education requirements of all professional schools in all Colorado public colleges and universities. The career courses are fully transferable only into the particular program identified by the articulation agreement. Consult with your advisor.
Entry Requirements. Students must apply for entry. At the time of application, students must identify which Associate of General Studies Degree program they desire to enter. Program application forms are in SO 134 and appropriate division offices. Entry requirements are the same as for the matching AAS Degree.
AGS Degree Requirements
All AGS degrees require the following:
Credits
General Education Core Courses 33-36
Electives or Courses Prescribed by Articulation Agreements 21-24 Capstone Course 3
Total 60
Courses to be counted toward the core general education requirement must be completed with a grade of C or better.
Associate of General Studies-Generalist Degree CAGS-G3
All CCD certificate and degree-seeking students are classified as Associate of General Studies-Generalist students until they apply and are accepted into another certificate or degree program. Students remain in the AGS-G program if they want to complete a broad program of both career and transfer courses without the constraints of specialization.
The AGS-G general education core curriculum transfers to and fully meets the lower division general education requirements of all public baccalaureate colleges and universities in Colorado. Transferability of AGS-G career courses depends upon the courses taken and the receiving institution. See your advisor.
Students may take either the Associate of Arts (AA) core curriculum or the Associate of Science (AS) core curriculum. The AA core follows.
