To graduates of the Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) degrees, Community College of Denver (CCD) guarantees that AA and AS credits, as identified in the CCD catalog, will transfer to all Colorado public colleges and universities.
To graduates of articulated Associate of General Studies (AGS) degrees, CCD guarantees that the articulated AGS degrees or credits, as identified in the CCD catalog, will transfer into the Colorado college and university professional schools as identified in the CCD catalog.
To students who complete the CCD general education core curriculum, CCD guarantees that the general education core curriculum will fulfill the lower division general education requirements for liberal arts and sciences majors at all Colorado public colleges and universities.

CCD's History
The Colorado legislature created CCD in 1967.
Three years later, its doors opened to students in a renovated auto showroom close to Denvers Civic Center. Enrollment increased so rapidly, the college immediately expanded into rental store fronts near the main building. In 1975, CCD moved to the 171-acre Auraria Higher Education Center campus in downtown Denver on the west bank of Cherry Creek, originally the site of the 1858 frontier town of Auraria. We even have the oldest-standing structure in Denver on our campus, Emmanuel Gallery, used today as exhibition space for student and faculty art work.
CCD is one of 13 institutions in the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System and the third largest with 6,000-plus students enrolled in its Auraria Campus programs. CCD is the only community college in the city and county of Denver and the only truly urban community college in Colorado. It also is the only community college in the nation to share a campus with a four-year college and a university, Metropolitan State College of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver. The three institutions share classroom buildings, a regional library, recreational facilities, student union, and other amenities. At Auraria, CCD provides all two-year programs, awards all two-year degrees and occupational certificates and implements remedial instruction, adult basic education and GED preparation.
In 1985, CCD took over the systems fast-track skills center, the Technical Education Center (TEC) 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. TEC East at 3532 Franklin St. in the Cole neighborhood, opened in 1993. TEC West, 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.
With a minority student body of more than 50 percent, CCD has the most diverse student population of all higher education institutions in Colorado. It no longer has an ethnic majority and its diversity truly reflects the citys population. At CCD, our students can choose from more than 90 programs that will

Veterans' Academic Standards of Progress
The following policy applies to all students who are veterans and other eligible persons receiving VA benefits:
1. Grade Point Requirements
Veterans must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all course work attempted. 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 probationary term, you will be suspended for one academic term. Reinstatement will occur only after approved counseling.
Suspension of the veteran 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.

nor is the grade certifiable to the VA.
I Grade indicates 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 veterans 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 that directly hinder an eligible veterans or other persons pursuit of a course are judged to be out of the students control. Following are some general categories of mitigating circumstances (not all-conclusive):
c. Immediate family or financial obligations that 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. You must submit evidence that you 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.
Extra Services Available
We encourage you to take advantage of CCDs many student services, listed under the Need More Help? section of this catalog. For all your academic, personal and career needs, you can save time by regularly talking to your adviser.

Financial Aid
Early Application
The Office of Financial Aid administers federal and state programs to assist eligible students in meeting the cost of their CCD education. Financial aid funds are limited, and we encourage students to start the application process several months before enrolling. Information brochures and applications are available at the Office of Financial Aid, South Classroom Building, room 135, 303-556-2420, and at all Technical Education Centers (see listing/addresses on page vi).
Application Procedures
Applications are available from the Office of Financial Aid. To apply for grants, scholarships, work-study employment, William D. Ford Federal Direct Loans and PLUS, complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Loans and scholarships require an additional application.
Financial aid applicants also may have to supply supporting documents, such as Federal Income Tax forms or statements of welfare, social security, vocational rehabilitation benefits, employment, etc.
Priority in awarding financial aid goes to students who apply early. To be on time, you must have mailed your application by March 1, and completed your file and submitted all documents by May 1. Applications received after the above dates will be considered based on the availability of funds.
Four to six weeks after applying, you will receive a Student Aid Report (SAR). Review it for correctness. CCD will receive the results of your financial aid status electronically if you included our school code (009542) on your application.
Check with the Office of Financial Aid for the school year priority dates.
Student Budget
The cost of a CCD education includes tuition, fees, books and supplies. In addition, you may have expenses for room and board, transportation, medical and personal items. We base our standard student budget on current estimated living costs. Budgets are adjusted for living arrangements (such as living with parents) and the length of enrollment. Standard monthly living allowances:
Living with parents # 660
Living away from parents #1040
A child care allowance may be added if you use day care. Allowances are subject to change without advance notice.


Ability to Benefit
If you are entering CCD without a high school diploma or GED and are applying for financial aid, you are classified as an Ability to Benefit Student. Ability to Benefit Students:
1. are admitted as regular students, seeking a degree or certificate.
2. must complete the regular assessment process and plan a schedule with an advisor.
3. must meet minimum qualifications on a test approved by the U.S. Department of Education for determining eligibility to receive financial aid.
4. are eligible to apply for financial aid for up to 30 credits of remedial courses (numbered 099 or below). Students who have not successfully completed the required remedial courses by the end of 30 attempted remedial credit hours may no longer apply for financial aid.
If you pass the GED test before attempting 30 credit hours, you no longer are classified as an Ability to Benefit Student.
Eligibility
Financial need determines most types of financial aid awards. Financial need is the difference between the cost of attending college and your available resources. Resources include parents contributions, your earnings, spouses earnings, and veterans, social security, vocational rehabilitation, welfare and unemployment benefits.
If you have a baccalaureate, masters or other advanced degrees, you must appeal to be eligible to apply for student loans and Colorado Scholars, after you complete 12 credits at CCD. Contact the Office of Financial Aid.
You must complete applications for financial aid once each year to determine eligibility.
Financial aid applicants must maintain satisfactory academic and measurable progress both prior to applying for financial and during the semester(s) aid is received. The minimum requirements are a
2.0 cumulative grade point average and 75 percent cumulative completion rate for all attempted course work. Students may receive aid for up to 150 percent of the credits required to complete their program. All credit hours taken at CCD, as well as transfer hours, are counted to determine satlsfacto-ry/measurable progress even if no financial aid was received. Students denied aid based on this policy may file an appeal. Appeal forms and copies of the complete policy are available from the Office of Financial Aid, South Classroom Building, room 135.
Students enrolled in programs that require fewer than 16 credits are not eligible for financial aid.
All Colorado state financial aid programs require Colorado state residency for tuition purposes.
All financial aid programs except Pell Grants require a minimum enrollment of 6 credits. Pell Grants require 3 credits.
Students registering for CCC ONLINE classes should check with the Office of Financial Aid regarding procedures for this on-line degree program.

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Programs
Loan applicants first must complete the FAFSA form. In addition, you must attend an entrance and an exit loan counseling interview to ensure you understand your loan repayment responsibilities.
CCD recommends first-year students loan borrowing from all loan programs be limited to 82,625 per academic year, or 81,313 per semester. We also recommend total student loan borrowing be limited to a maximum of 810,000, including any loans borrowed at other schools. Call the Office of Financial Aid, 303-556-2420, to learn more about student loan eligibility.
Federal Direct Subsidized Loan This program provides loans at a variable rate. Federal program limits allow students to borrow up to 82,625 per year as freshmen. Sophomores who have finished 30 credit hours of college-level work may borrow up to 83,500 per year. Loans have a six-month grace period prior to the first payment. The Federal Direct Subsidized Loan is a need-based program. The interest rate is variable and paid by the Federal Government until the grace
period ends.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loan The Direct Unsubsidized Loan program provides loans for students remaining Stafford eligibility. The federal limits are 84,000 for freshmen and sophomores. You may borrow the cost of education minus any other aid. No family contribution is subtracted from the loan. You will pay the interest rate from the date of disbursement.
Federal Direct Loans to Parents Parents may borrow for their students from the Federal Direct PLUS loan program. Repayment begins within 60 days after disbursement. The interest rate is variable and the parent has up to 10 years to repay the loan. A credit check is required.
Refund and Repayment Policies
If you do not begin attending a class, you will not receive financial aid for the class, but will be charged tuition and fees if you fail to officially withdraw by the published date.
If you receive financial aid from CCD and then withdraw from classes or stop attending, you may be subject to repayment of a portion of the financial aid you received.
You may be eligible for a tuition refund if you withdraw from classes. (See Tuition Refund Policy.)
If any portion of the your tuition and fees was paid from any financial aid fund, the refund will be returned to the account(s) from which you were paid in the order listed under Distribution of Refunds. An administrative fee, not to exceed the lesser of 5 percent of the institutional charges or 8100, will be charged.
If you only receive Colorado state financial aid, you are subject to CCDs Institutional Refund Policy outlined in this catalog and the Financial Aid Repayment Policy.
Refund/Repayment Policies do not apply to students who do not begin attendance in classes.
These students are considered ineligible, and any financial aid disbursed must be repaid. Students who fail to withdraw from classes prior to the published census date will be held responsible for any tuition/fee charges and repayment of disbursed financial aid.


Pro-Rata Refund
If you are enrolling at CCD for the first time and are a Title IV financial aid recipient, and withdraw or cease to attend prior to completing 60 percent of your first semester, you will have a pro-rated portion of your tuition/fees calculated. The amount refunded will be the greater of the institutional, pro-rata or federal refund.
Pro-Rata Calculation
Number of weeks not attended by student divided by number of weeks in the term (rounded down to the nearest 10%) = percentage of term not attended.
The amount to be refunded is the percentage of term not attended multiplied by the institutional charges (tuition and fees) minus an administrative fee not to exceed the lesser of 5 percent of the institutional charges or 8100.
Federal Refund
Title IV recipients who are not eligible for pro-rata refund and who withdraw from CCD during the first 50 percent of the semester may be eligible for a refund of charges to the financial aid programs in accordance with the following schedule:
Percentage of Time Prior to Withdrawal 0-15%
16-25%

Repayment
If you receive cash disbursements from federal and/or state financial aid programs and withdraw prior to mid-term (approximately the seventh or eighth week), you must repay a portion of the financial aid received if the disbursement exceeds educational expenses.

Repayments are applied to a financial aid account(s) in the following order:
1. Federal Pell Grant
2. Federal SEOG
3. Other Title IV Federal Programs
4. Other Federal Sources of Aid
5. Colorado Student Incentive Grant
6. Colorado State Financial Aid
7. Private Funds

Academic Standards
Attendance
Your regular and punctual attendance is expected, and each instructor will keep a complete record of your attendance for the entire length of each course. You 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. You are responsible for informing the instructor of the reason for an absence and for doing so in a timely fashion. You, whether present or absent, are 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 because of clinical requirements or requirements of approving agencies.
You are responsible for properly processing a withdrawal.
Course Load
A full-time course load is 12 to 15 credits. If you are registered for fewer than 12 credits, you are classified a part-time student.
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. You are required to maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 for all course work attempted.
2. If your cumulative grade point average falls below the required 2.0 on an attempted six or more credits, you will be placed on academic probation for the following term of enrollment.
3. Should you fail to raise your cumulative GPA to 2.0 by the end of the probationary instructional term, CCD will consider suspending you academically for a minimum of one term.
4. If you are placed on academic suspension, you must meet with the vice president for Student Services to determine eligibility for continued enrollment.
5. You may appeal your suspension to the Suspension Review Board. Decisions of the 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, 303-556-2413.

d. You successfully completed ENG 121 and MAT 121 or their equivalents with a C grade or better within the last five years. (Students taking math or English must take that portion of the assessment).
e. You enrolled in one course for personal enrichment.
f. You can provide assessment and placement scores from another accredited institution that meet CCD criteria.
If you initially enrolled in one course for personal enrichment or job upgrading and have not been assessed, you must participate in assessment before entering into a certificate or degree program.
Our assessment methods include one or both of the following:
1. a comprehensive review of your past records such as standardized test results, high school and college transcripts and prior learning experiences.
2. a test battery that includes writing, study skills, reading, mathematics and English as a Second Language.
Either assessment method includes a personal interview with an advisor to review test results and your academic and personal background to determine classes for which you are academically ready.
If your score is below program-entry level in writing, study skills, reading and/or mathematics, you should take review courses beginning your first semester at CCD. You are expected to pursue basic skills until you reach college-level competency.
Usually, you can enroll in certificate and degree requirement classes at the same time you take review courses. However, if the review course is a prerequisite, you must complete it before enrolling in a higher-level course.
2. English as a Second Language
If English is your second language, you should take tests to assess your level of English. You will take the Levels of English Proficiency (LOEP) Reading and Language Use tests and a listening comprehension test. If your score on the Language Use test is high, you will write a short essay. You will take these tests in the Test Center, South Classroom Building, room 232. When you receive your test scores, talk with an advisor to help you choose the classes you need to improve your English.

Note: All other grades (AU, AW, F, & SP) are not calculated into the CCD GPA.
The following example will help you calculate your grade point average:
Recognition of Achievement or Continuing Education Units (CEU)
CCD offers many courses, conferences, workshops and seminars for upgrading job skills and for personal enrichment. Successful completion of courses of this type may result in the granting of a Recognition of Achievement or a CEU that may be requested from the appropriate instructional division.
Repeating Courses
A. You may repeat a course only once if you receive a D or F grade.
B. You must request a Petition to Repeat a Course Form from the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records, South Classroom Building, room 133, complete it and turn it in when registering for the class you wish to repeat.
C. All forms must be submitted prior to Census Date, posted in the class schedule.
D. You may, while enrolled at CCD, register inter-institutionally to repeat a course originally taken at CCD at Metropolitan State College of Denver or University of Colorado at Denver.
E. The GPA will be changed only once for the same class.
F. Under extenuating circumstances, you 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.

Student Rights and Responsibilities
CCD students have all the rights and responsibilities of other citizens and are subject to the same federal, state and local laws as non-students. As members of the college community, you also are subject to the rules and regulations of the college. If you believe your rights have been violated, you may file a grievance using the Grievance Procedure for Students, which begins on page 25 of this catalog.

Student Right-to-Know Information
Of the 455 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students who entered CCD in the fall of 1994,
29 percent either had graduated or transferred to another Colorado public postsecondary institution at the end of three academic years (by the end of summer 1997). Another 16.3 percent were enrolled still at CCD in fall 1997. The overall completion, transfer and persistence rate of 45.3 percent (29 percent plus 16.3 percent) is above the statewide community college average of nearly 41 percent during the same time period.

The objective of these procedures is to provide for the prompt, fair and equitable resolution of all student grievances. If you believe your rights or freedoms have been violated, you are advised to use the grievance procedure.
This procedure is not intended to be used when the college takes disciplinary action against a student for violation of the Student Code of Conduct or related student actions. Grievance procedures could apply to college admissions, access to the college, treatment by the college in its educational programs, or college activities.
Student rights and freedoms include, but are not limited to, such things as discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age and sexual preference, as well as sexual harassment and other provisions of the Students Rights and Responsibilities College Policy.
We hope our students will attempt to resolve problems first through the informal grievance procedure (Step 1 below). If the grievance is not resolved satisfactorily through the informal procedure as detailed in Step 1, students may file a formal written grievance (Step 2). Petitions for change of grade are limited to Step 1. Where a student is uncomfortable discussing the harassment with the alleged harasser, s/he may satisfy the first step by working directly with the vice president for Student Services.
Definitions
A. Grievant: Enrolled student, a client or volunteer who is providing a service to benefit the college under the supervision and control of a college employee. A client or volunteer may only grieve a decision that bans him or her from the campus.
B. Grievance: A grievable offense is any alleged action that violates or inequitably applies written college policies or procedures. The grievant must be personally affected by such violation or inequitable action. A grievance must be brought to the formal stage within 20 calendar days of the date the student knew or reasonably should have known about the action.
C. Vice President for Student Services: The college employee designated by the college president to administer student grievances. Grievances alleging discrimination issues may be referred to the employee responsible for ensuring equal opportunity and access.
D. Remedy: The relief the grievant is requesting.
E Respondent(s): Another student, volunteer, client, faculty member and/or administrator identified by the grievant as causing or contributing to the grievance.
F. Non-grievable matters: The following matters are not grievable under this procedure except as noted: matter over which the college is without authority to act; grades and other academic decisions unless there is an allegation that the decision was motivated by illegal discrimination; and disciplinary actions taken pursuant to BP 4-30.
>


Step 1 The Informal Grievance Procedure
Grievant is encouraged to resolve the issue with the respondent or his/her supervisor. In the case of grievances based on ones race, color, creed, national origin or ancestry, disability, age or gender, the grievant may first contact the college employee responsible for affirmative action to seek informal resolution of the issues. If the complaint alleges facts that might constitute a violation of SP 3-120a, concerning sexual harassment, the administrator shall investigate and process the complaint under that procedure. While the grievant is encouraged to resolve the issues through the informal process, he or she may at any time elect to go to the formal stage by following the process outlined below.
Step 2 The Formal Grievance Procedure
A. Grievant timely files a written statement of the actions complained of and describes the remedy he or she is seeking with the vice president for Student Services. A matter could also be referred to this process by the college president or his/her designee. Once a written grievance is filed or referred, the vice president for Student Services or designee will determine whether or not the situation states a grievable offense. The matter will be closed if the situation is determined not grievable and the grievant will be notified of the reasons.
B. If the matter is determined to be grievable, the vice president for Student Services or designee (which may be an individual or a committee) shall hear the grievance. A hearing will be held that will give the grievant, respondent, and others invited to appear, the opportunity to explain what they know about the issues surrounding the grievance. Considering the oral and written statements and documents, the vice president for Student Services or designee shall issue a decision within 10 calendar days of close of the hearing. The decision shall be served upon the grievant
and the respondent personally or by certified mail to the addresses on file in the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records. The decision shall reject the grievance or grant the grievance and make recommendation(s) to resolve the issue(s). The vice president for Student Services or designees decision is final unless a Petition for Review is filed with the president by either party within five (5) calendar days of service of the decision.
C. Upon receipt of a Petition for Review, the college president will review the record and issue a written decision within 10 calendar days of receipt of the Petition for Review. The presidents decision is final.
D. The vice president for Student Services or designee may extend the scheduling timelines described above for good cause.
E. If the grievance is against the vice president for Student Services, the vice president of Instruction or other person designated by the president shall perform the duties of the vice president for Student Services.

Degree Requirements
All degrees and certificates will list the degree or
certificate only, not the emphasis.
If you are applying for a Community College of
Denver (CCD) degree program, you must meet all of
the following requirements. The vice president for
Instruction may approve exceptions.
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 about 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 your final academic semester.
5. Complete your programs capstone course with a C or better grade.
6. Complete all courses taken to fulfill general education requirements with a C or better.
7. Complete the required survey of all graduating students.
General Education Requirements
All associate degrees have general education requirements that meet goals for general education established by the State Board for Colorado Community Colleges and Occupational Education. They are:
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 a students 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 Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (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 on Higher Education.
General education addresses the needs of all students regardless of program area, degree sought, or major since 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 AA, an 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 are academically rigorous and of such quality that transfer students may be assured of their ability to compete successfully on 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.
Certificate Requirements
All CCD certificate program graduates must meet the following requirements. The vice president for Instruction may approve exceptions.
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 you to earn at least a C grade in specific course work. Check with your instructional division and your advisor for information about the minimum grade point average required for graduation.
3. Complete a minimum of 15 credits in the program area at CCD.
4. Complete the capstone course.
Graduation Requirements
Degrees and certificates will be granted during the semester in which the final requirements are completed. Students need to apply for graduation by the deadline date published in the class schedule. If the deadline date is missed, the student will automatically be added to the next semester graduating class.
If you receive an (I) in a course required for graduation in your final semester, you will not graduate until the semester in which the (I) is replaced by a letter grade. During that semester, you must reapply for graduation. You will not need to retake the Academic Profile.
Students must take at least 15 credit hours at CCD to receive a diploma from this institution.
Other Graduation Policies
1. You must apply for graduation one semester prior to the semester in which you wish to graduate.
2. You can apply no more than six semester hours of courses numbered 299 (independent study course work) toward an associate degree program.
3. There is no limit on special topics courses allowed to count toward a degree. In individual cases, the limit is determined by the program area. If you take special topic courses, consult with your advisors about how these credits apply toward
a degree.
4. Degrees and certificates will be granted during the semester in which the final requirements are completed. For example, if you receive an (I) in a course required for graduation in your final semester, you will not graduate until the semester in which the (I) is replaced by a letter grade. During that semester, you must reapply for graduation. You will not need to retake the Academic Profile.
Catalog Requirements for Graduation
You may graduate under the catalog requirements listed for the academic year in which you were first enrolled. If you interrupt attendance for one year or more and then return, the catalog of the re-admission year is the document of authority. If graduation requirements and policies change, you may choose to follow the catalog of the year of initial entry or the current catalog. Obtain and keep a copy of the catalog published the year in which you enter or are re-admitted. The instructional division or program will determine the extent to which semester credit hours previously earned will apply to degree requirements listed in the most current college catalog.
The catalog should not be considered a contract between you and CCD. 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.

Definitions
Area of Emphasis
In the Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) Degree programs, the area of emphasis refers to 12 or more credit hours in a subject field in preparation for transfer and selection of a major at a baccalaureate college.
Capstone Courses
These are courses, usually taken during the final semester, in which program competencies are reviewed and assessed. All courses identified as Capstone courses require a grade of C or better for graduation. Capstone courses must be taken at CCD.
Contact Hour
This is a 50-minute period of classroom or lab contact between student and instructor.
Core Curriculum
These are courses that fulfill lower division general education requirements as defined and agreed upon between the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education and the governing boards of all public four-year institutions in Colorado.
Corequisite
This is a course or requirement that must be completed during the same semester as the course that identifies the corequisite.
Credit Hour
This is the basic unit of academic credit. Generally, one-credit hour is earned by attending a lecture class for a 50-minute period, once a week, for a full semester. In a laboratory course, one-credit hour is granted for two to three 50-minute periods per week in the laboratory.
General Education
General Education is the liberal arts component of a baccalaureate degree that may include lower division and upper division courses as defined by each institution.
Open Entry
This course designation allows the student to start at any time prior to the last date to drop classes published in the Schedule of Classes. The student must complete all course requirements by the end of the semester, regardless of entry date.
Opcn-entry/Open-exit
This course designation allows students to enroll at any time prior to the last date to drop classes and progress at their own learning pace. If the student does not complete course requirements by the end of the semester, an SP (Satisfactory Progress) grade will be given and the student may continue in the course the following semester at no additional tuition charge.
Prerequisite
This is a required course that must be completed satisfactorily before registering for the course that identifies that prerequisite.
Speech Intensive Courses
Associate of Applied Science Speech Intensive courses combine the requirements of SPE 115 with the content of vocational classes. Students who transfer a course from another college that is noted as speech intensive at CCD may meet the SPE 115 requirements only by taking SPE 115 as a separate course.

Associate of Arts Degree
University Parallel, Transfer Program
An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, social science, arts or humanities. 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 toward the general education core curriculum must be completed with a grade of C or higher. Students planning to transfer should familiarize themselves with the full requirements of the school they plan to attend.
These are available in the Transfer Center in South Classroom Building, room 134.
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.

Areas of Emphasis for the AS Degree
Students should complete the courses listed under the emphasis area if they plan to transfer to a four-year degree program in one of these emphasis areas, or plan to enter a professional school in an area listed. An associate degree can be earned without completing an emphasis area, and associate degree requirements may be fulfilled before all the courses listed under an area of emphasis have been completed. Any courses completed beyond those required for an associate degree can be applied to a four-year degree program. Courses shown in bold under the emphasis area meet core requirements. Students must complete a total of 60 semester hours for the associate degree. Of these, 21-24 must be from courses listed below having science or math prefixes and not used to fulfill the core requirements. Requirements in four-year or professional programs sometimes change yearly. We recommended that students speak frequently with the appropriate advisor in the Division of Science and Technology, South Classroom Building, room 306, while completing degree requirements.


Associate of General Studies Degree
CCD offers two types of Associate of General Studies degrees. Both require the lower division core general education courses that 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 three 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 students 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 schools. Transferability of career courses is not guaranteed. If students select this option, they should 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 AGS-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-G 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 a 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 Building, room 134, and appropriate division offices. Entry requirements are the same as for the matching AAS degree.

Associate of General Studies-Generalist Degree (AGS-G)
All CCD certificate and degree-seeking students are classified as AGS-G 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 on the courses taken and the receiving institution. All students who have completed 12 college-level credits should see a faculty advisor in their area of interest.
Students may take either the AA core curriculum or the AS core curriculum. The AA core follows.

Three years later its doors opened to students in a renovated auto showroom close to Denver s Civic Center. Enrollment increased so rapidly, the college immediately expanded into rental store fronts near the main building In 1975 CCD moved to the 171-acre Auraria Higher Education Center campus in downtown Denver on the west bank of Cherry Creek originally the site of the 1858 frontier town of Auraria. We e ven have the oldest-standing structure in Denver on our campus, Emmanuel Gallery used toda y as exhibition space for student and faculty art work. CCD is one of 13 institutions in the Colorado Community College and Occupational Ed u cation System and the third largest with 6 000-plus students enrolled in its Auraria Campus programs CCD is the only community college i n the city and county of Denver and the only truly urban community college in C olorado It also is the only community college in the nation to share a campus ,vith a four-year college and a university Metropolitan State College of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver. The three in s titutions share classroom buildings, a regional library recreational facilities, student union, and other amenities At Auraria, CCD provides all two-year programs awards all two-year degrees and occupational certificates and implements remedial instruction, adult basic education and GED preparation In 1985 CC D took over the system s fast-track skills center, the Technical Education Center (TEC) at 6221 Downing in Adams County six miles northeast of Auraria TEC now known as TEC orth, is an op e n-entry/open-exit fast-track training center that meets industry employment needs.

30 (!) o ..J < I-< (.) ... IX W > 2 w o LL o w (!) W ..J ..J o (.) grievance procedure FOR STUDENTS The objective of these procedures is to provide for the prompt, fair and equitable resolution of all student grievances If you believe your rights or freedoms have been violate d you are advised to use the griev ance procedure. This procedure is not intended to be used when the college takes disciplinary action against a student for violation of the Student Code of Conduct or related student actions. Grievance procedures could apply to college admissions, access to the college treatment by the college in its educational programs or college activities. Student rights and freedoms include, but are not limited to such things as discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age and sexual preference, as well as sexual harassment and other provisions of the Students Rights and Responsibilities College Policy. We hope our students will attempt to resolve probl ems first through the informal grievance procedure (Step 1 below). If the grievance is not resolved satisfactorily throu gh the informal procedure as detailed in Step 1, students may file a formal written grievance (Step 2). Petitions for change of grade are limited to Step 1. Where a student is uncomfortable discussing the harassment with the alleged harasser, s/he may satisfy the first step by working directly with the vice president for Student Services. Definitions A. Grievan t : Enrolled student, a client or volunteer who is providing a service to benefit the college under the supervis ion and contr o l of a college empl oyee. A client or volunteer may only grieve a decision that bans hi m or her from the campus. B Grievance : A grievab le offense i s any alleged actio n that violates or in eqUitab ly applies written college poliCies or procedures. The grievant must be personally affected by such vio lation or inequitable action. A grievance must be brought to the formal stage within 20 calendar days of the date the student knew or reasonably should h ave known about the acti on. C. Vice President for Student Services: The college emplo yee deSignated by the college president to administer student grievances. Grievances alleg ing discrimination issue s may be referred to the employe e responsible for ensuring equal opportunity and access D. Remedy : The relief the grievant is requesting E Respo nd ent(s): Another student, volunteer client, faculty member anNor administrator identified by the grievant as cau s in g o r contributin g to the grievance. F. on-griev able matters: The following matters are not grievable under this procedure except as noted: matter over which the college is \vithout authori ty to act; gra des and other academic deci sions unl ess there is an allegation that the decision was motiv ated by illegal discrimination; and disci plinary actions taken pursuant to BP 4-30.

Step 1 The Informal Grievance Procedure Grievant is enco uraged to r esolve the issue with the respond ent or hislher supervisor. In the case of grievances based on one's race, color creed national origin or ancestry, disability, age or gender, the grievant may first contact the college employee r es p o n si ble for affi rmative actio n to seek informal resolution of the iss u es. If the complaint alleges facts that might constitute a v iolation of SP 3-120a, concerning sexual harassment, the administrator s hall inves ti ga t e and proce ss the complaint under that procedure. While the grievant is encourage d t o res o l ve the issues through the informal process he or s h e may at any time elect to go to th e formal stage by followi n g the process o utlin e d bel ow Step 2 The Formal Grievance Procedure A Grievant timely files a written sta tement of the actions complained of and de scribes the remedy h e o r s h e is seeking with the vice presi d ent for Student Services A matter could also be referred t o this process b y the college president or hislher d esig nee. Once a written g rievance is filed o r ref erre d the vice president for Student Services or designee will determine whether o r not the sit uation states a grievable offense. The matter will be closed if the situ atio n i s d e t ermined not g r iev able and the grievant will be n o tif ied of the rea sons. B If the matter i s d e termin e d to be g ri evab l e, the vice president for Student Services or designee (whic h m ay b e an individual or a committee) shall hear the grievance. A h earing w ill be h e ld that w ill give the grievant, respondent, and o thers in vited to appear, the opportunity t o exp lain what they know about the issues surrounding the griev ance. Considering the o ral and written s tate ments and documents, the v ice president for Student Services or d es ignee s h all issu e a deci sion within 10 cal endar days of clo se of the h earing. The decision shall be served upo n the grievant an d the respondent personally or by certified m ail to the addresses o n file in the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records.
