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 system's 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 35 Franklin Street in the Cole neighborhood, opened in 191 TEC West, located at 2420 W. 26th Ave. in the Diamond F Complex, also opened in 1993, the same year all TEC sil began offering traditional general education college cours
As one of eleven colleges in the Colorado Commun: College and Occupational Education System and the thi largest, CCD is the only community college in the city ai county of Denver and the only truly urban communi college in Colorado. Moreover, it has the distinction being the only community college in the nation th shares a campus with a four-year college and a universii At Auraria, Community College of Denver is responsit for all two-year programs, the awarding of all two-ye degrees and occupational certificates and for implemer ing remedial instruction, adult basic education and GF preparation.
The 6,000-plus students enrolled in CCD c the Auraria Campus enjt facilities rarely available other community colleges-regional library, an expansi physical education buildir combined with an events cent and a student union with extei sive accommodation for studei activities. Impressive campi landscaping surrounds 16 reston Victorian buildings; 17 contemp rary structures; St. Cajetan's mi sion-style church, now an auditoi um; and Emmanuel Gallery, tl oldest standing structure in Denvt used today as exhibition space f< student and faculty art work.

STUDENTS RIGHT TO KNOW INFORMATION
Of the 592 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students who entered Community College of Denver (CCD) in the fall of 1990, 30.8 percent had either graduated or transferred to another Colorado public post-secondary institution at the end of three academic years (by the end of Summer 1993). Another 6.4 percent were still enrolled at CCD in the fall of 1993. The overall completion, transfer, and persistence rate of 37.2 percent (30.8 percent + 6.4 percent) is comparable to the statewide average of 41.2 percent during the same time period.
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 percent 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 to 15 credits. Students who are registered for fewer 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.
COLLEGE POLICIES AND ACADEMIC STANDARDS


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. All credit hours taken at Community College of Denver, as well as transfer hours, will be counted to determine satisfactory/measur-able 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 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
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 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 s/he 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.

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)
POS 111 American Government _3 F _0 (3 x 0)
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.
POLICY ON REPEATING COURSES
A. Students who receive a D, F, NC or AW may repeat a course only once and do not need prior approval.
B. Students may, while enrolled at CCD, register inter-institutionally to repeat at MSCD or UCD a course originally taken at CCD.

D. The GPA will be changed only once for the same class.
E. Under extenuating circumstances, students may appeal to the dean of the division responsible for offering a course for permission to retake a course and/or adjust a grade more than once.
RECOGNITION OF ACHIEVEMENT OR CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS (CEU)

the career courses is not guaranteed. If you select this option, request and consult with a faculty advisor. Students are strongly encouraged to develop specific career goals and to transfer to the CCD degree program appropriate to those goals.
Entry Requirements: the AGS-G degree is the only degree that 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. All students who pursue this degree plan should be assigned to a FACULTY ADVISOR after completing 12 semester hours.
Program Admission Requirements
None
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 career courses are fully transferable only into the particular program and college identified by the articulation agreement. Consult with your faculty advisor.
Entry Requirements: students must apply for entry. Students are encouraged to apply to a program by the time they have completed 12 credits of 100-level courses. At the time of application, students must identify which Associate of General Studies degree program they desire to enter. Program application forms are in South Classroom, Room 134, and appropriate division offices. Entry requirements are the same as for the matching AAS degree.
Program Admission Requirements:
See individual articulated degree options.
CREDIT AND CONTACT HOURS
Credits are the hours of credit awarded to the course. An Associate Degree requires a minimum of 60 credits. Contacts are the in-class contact hours required for the course. Credit or contact hours in parenthesis, e.g., (3) are options from which you may choose. They may also be course embedded content. They are not included in the total credit or contact hours listed below. An average fulltime student course load is 15 credit hours. An Associate of General Studies Degree of 60 credit hours takes four semesters of 15 credits each semester assuming that all courses count toward the degree. AGS Degrees of more than 60 credit hours may take more than four semesters to complete.
AGS Degree Requirements
All AGS degrees require the following:
Credit Hours
General Education Core Courses 33-36
Electives or Courses Prescribed by Articulation Agreements Capstone Course 21 24 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 (AGS-G)
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. All students who have completed 12 college-level credits should see a faculty advisor in their area of interest.
Students may take either the Associate of Arts (AA) core curriculum or the Associate of Science (AS) core curriculum. The AA core follows.
