CCDs History
The Colorado Legislature created CCD in 1967. Three years later, classes began in a renovated auto showroom close to Denver's Civic Center. Enrollment increased so rapidly, the college immediately expanded into rental storefronts near the main building.
In 1975, CCD moved to the 171-acre Auraria Higher Education Center Campus in downtown Denver. It sits 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, the for-
mer Temple Emmanuel. Today, the Emmanuel Gallery is used as exhibition space for student and faculty artwork.
CCD is one of 15 institutions in the Colorado Community College and Occupational Education System. It is the fourth largest with more than 4,000 fulltime equivalent students enrolled in its programs. CCD is the only community college in the city and county of Denver and the only truly urban community college in the state. It also is the only community college in the nation to share a campus with a four-year college and a university The Metropolitan State College of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver. They share classroom buildings, a regional library, recreational facilities and a student union. At Auraria, CCD offers all two-year programs, awards all two-year degrees and occupational certificates, and provides remedial instruction, adult basic education and GED preparation.
In 1985, CCD became responsible for the system's fast-track skills center, the Technical Education Center, now known as CCD North, at 6221 Downing St. in Adams County, six miles northeast of Auraria. CCD East at 3532 Franklin St. in the Cole neighborhood, opened in 1993. CCD West, at 2420 W. 26th Ave. in the Diamond Hill Complex, also opened that year. All three branch campuses offer traditional general education college courses. They also are open-entry/open-exit fast-track training centers that meet the industry employment needs of the metropolitan community.
Our newest branch campus is CCD Lowry at the Higher Education and Advanced Technology (HEAT) Center on the former Lowry Air Force Base bordering east Denver and west Aurora. CCD Lowry is home to the CCD's Health Education Center, the Dental Hygiene Clinic and all Health and Wellness programs. The CCD Parkway Campus is the site of CCD's Business and Industry Services, Corporate Training Center, Customized and Contract Training programs, Small Business Development Center, Work and Family Resource Center and Workplace Learning Initiatives.
CCD has the most diverse student population of all Colorado higher education institutions with a minority student body of more than 54 percent. The college no longer has an ethnic majority and its diverse faculty, staff and student populations reflect the city.
At CCD, learners can choose from more than 150 programs that will prepare them for a new career, allow them to earn a certificate-of-training, certificate or associate degree, or enable them to transfer to four-year colleges and universities.
You have taken a step in the right direction to prepare for the future your future.

The census date for standard courses is listed in the Schedule of Classes. The census date for open-entry courses is that point when 15 percent of the balance of the term from the date of registration has passed.

Transferring to Four-year Institutions
CCD's AA and AS degrees are guaranteed to transfer to Colorado public four-year colleges and universities. Students with AA and AS degrees enter four-year institutions as juniors. CCD also has a number of programs leading to the AGS Degree that transfers to the Metropolitan State College of Denver or to the University of Colorado at Denver. Consult the Degree, Certificate and Certificate-of-Training section in this catalog for more information about these transfer degrees.
On some occasions the Associate of Applied Science degree may transfer.
If you intend to transfer, familiarize yourself with the requirements of the school you wish to attend. You also should consult the advisor in the Transfer Center in South Classroom Building, room 134.
The Transfer Center stocks catalogs from Colorado and many U.S. four-year colleges and universities. Admissions counselors from four-year colleges and universities make regular visits to CCD. Inquire about specific visitations in the Transfer Center or call 303-556-2481.

STARTED
A transfer bulletin board by South Classroom 125 has postings of visits from four-year college representatives and other pertinent information.
Orientations for CCD students who intend to transfer are on the first Monday of the month at 10 a.m. and 6 p.m. in South Classroom Building, room 136A.
Veterans Academic Standards of Progress
The following policy applies to all students who are veterans and other eligible persons receiving Veterans Affairs
(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, the veteran will be suspended for one academic term. Reinstate-ment will occur only after approved counseling.
Suspension of the veteran under the Veterans' Academic Standards of Progress Policy will result in CCD's not certifying enrollment to the VA. 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 Grade indicates the student "audited" the course. No credit is allowed for audited courses, 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 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 who 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 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 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-puni-tive 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 VA 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 VA.
Extra Services Available
We encourage you to take advantage of CCD's many learner services, listed under the Learner Services section of this catalog. For all your academic, personal and career needs, you can save time by regularly talking to your advisor.
Good luck!

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 in the Office of Financial Aid, South Classroom Building, room 135, 303-556-2420, and at all branch campuses (see listing/addresses on page vii).
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 assistance from Social Services, Social Security, vocational rehabilitation benefits, unemployment, 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.
Student Budget
The cost of a CCD education includes tuition, fees, books and supplies. Additional expenses include 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 $ 670
Living away from parents $1,060
COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG
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 are no longer eligible 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, spouse's earnings, and veteran's, Social Security, vocational rehabilitation, welfare and unemployment benefits.
If you have a baccalaureate, master's or other advanced degrees, you must appeal to be eligible to apply for student loans and Colorado Scholars. (See individual program information.) 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 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 satisfactory/measur-able 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.

So you'll know what you can expect of us at the Community College of Denver (CCD) and what we'll expect of you, please read this alphabetized section carefully. Your counselor, advisor, or a staff member in Student Services, South Classroom Building, room 134, can help if you have additional questions.
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 center 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 vice president for Student Services, 303-556-2413.
Assessment
1. Basic Skills Assessment
If you are a first-time CCD student, you must take a basic skills assessment test for English, math, reading and study skills unless you meet one of the following criteria for an exemption.
a. You have an associate or higher degree with
a grade of C or better in English 121 and Math 121 or their equivalents.
b. You enrolled for employment in-service or upgrading.
c. You reached the 50th percentile on ACT (minimum composite score of 20 with minimum score of 20 in subject area test) or SAT (minimum scores of 900, composite; 420, verbal; 480, math).
d. You successfully completed ENG 121 and MAT 121 or their equivalents with a grade of C 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.
CCD's 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.
21


POLICIES & ACADEMIC STANDARDS
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.

Upon successful completion of such a course, unit credit is 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 follow.
1. In authorized credit/no credit courses, the credit grade is granted for performance equivalent to the letter grade of "C" or better.

1. In courses for which this grade is authorized, the SP will be given in either of the following cases,
a. You attended for a full term and show satisfactory progress, but have not yet mastered required course objectives.
23


POLICIES & ACADEMIC STANDARDS

COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG
vice president for Instruction. Grade appeals go to the dean responsible for the course, then to the vice president for Instruction.
Grade Point Average
Grade points measure your achievement for the number of credits completed. To calculate your grade point average (GPA), multiply the number of grade points by the number of credits for each course. Total the credits and points, then divide the grade points by the total number of credits.
A = 4 grade points B = 3 grade points C = 2 grade points D = 1 grade point F = 0 grade points
Note: All other grades (Credit/No Credit, SP, I, W, AU, AW) are not calculated into the CCD GPA.
The following example will help you calculate your grade point average:
Course Credits ANT 111 Grade Points
Principles of Anthropology BIO 111 3 A 12 (3 x 4)
General College Biology CIS 115 15 A 20 (5 x 4)
Intro, to Computing ENG 121 3 B 9 (3 x 3)
English Comp. Essay Writing POS 111 3 D 3 (3 x 1)
American Government TOTALS 3 17 F 0 (3 x 0) 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 for a 2.41 GPA.
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 center.

B. You must request a "Petition to Repeat a Course Form" from the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records, South Classroom Building, room 133, com-
1999-2000

POLICIES & ACADEMIC STANDARDS
22. Aiding and/or encouraging others in committing or inciting others to commit any act of misconduct set forth in 1 through 21 above.
Electronic Communications Policy
CCD has adopted the following policy to guide usage of all forms of electronic communication. For purposes of this policy statement, electronic communication includes, but is not limited to, electronic mail, Internet services, voice mail, audio and video conferencing, and facsimile messages that are sent or received by faculty, staff, students, and other authorized users of CCD resources.
I. Ownership of Electronic Communication and Permissible Uses
CCD provides various forms of electronic communication to facilitate the conduct of academic pursuits and other CCD business. The records created are the property of CCD and not of the individuals sending or receiving such messages. Individuals who are authorized to use electronic and voice mail may make incidental and occasional personal use of these facilities when such use does not generate a direct cost for CCD. In doing so, users acknowledge CCD's ownership of the systems and its rights with regard to use.
Electronic communications conduct is expected to meet the standards of conduct, laws, regulations, etc., published in official CCD, state, or federal documents including, but not limited to, the CCD catalog, CCD Student Code of Conduct, the Faculty Handbook and the Colorado State Employees Handbook.
II. Prohibited Uses
Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to:
use of electronic communication for commercial purposes.
use of electronic communication to send copies of documents in violation of copyright laws.
transmission of information, access to which is restricted by laws or regulations.
use of electronic communication to intimidate, threaten, or harass other individuals, or to interfere with the ability of others to conduct CCD business.
forging of communication so it appears to be from someone else.
obtaining or attempting to obtain unauthorized access to data, files, other electronic communication, etc. Any unauthorized attempt to breach security measures to access or acquire electronically stored information is prohibited. These acts are prohibited regardless of the methods utilized. The term "access" includes reading, deleting, moving, changing access privileges, or affecting files, data, etc., in any unauthorized manner.
use of chain letters.
III. CCD Access and Disclosure
The contents of e-mail messages, backups and archives may be required to be disclosed as a result of legal discovery, writ, warrant or subpoena, or as a result of a request under the Colorado Open Records Law. CCD will not
monitor electronic communication as a routine matter. E-mail will not be backed up. Message contents will be inspected as needed to protect health, safety or security.
IV. Disciplinary Action
If a violation of policy is suspected, computer support staff and other CCD personnel will refer the matter to the vice president for Information Resources and Planning. If a condition exists where Department of Information Resources and Planning staff believes there is a need for immediate action, that action (account deactivation, etc.) will be taken and the matter referred to the authorities listed above. These cases will be limited to instances involving safety, security, matters of an emergency nature, or those items described in Section II, Prohibited Uses.
V. E-mail Ethics and Good Practices
E-mail is not like a phone call. More information, including copies of the content of your messages, is routinely recorded about the use of e-mail than about your use of the telephone. A broader, less controlled set of people have access to that information.
E-mail is not like a letter in an envelope, and there is no easy way to mark a message "confidential."
E-mail is most like a postcard. The contents of your message may be viewed during the mailing process. If there is a problem with routing, a "postmaster" may read your message to try to redirect it correctly. Your message can be forwarded or printed.
Don't put anything in an e-mail message that you would not want posted on a bulletin board, used in a lawsuit or shared with the wrong person.
Do use professional, courteous language that will not embarrass you later. It's much easier to edit a message before you send it, than to send an apology later. If you receive mail that was not intended for you, send an appropriate reply to the sender.
CCD's e-mail systems are developed and maintained to accomplish the work of the college. They can be used for academic pursuits and related administrative tasks, abiding by all applicable guidelines and policies. A minimal amount of personal use is acceptable, however use good judgment and limit the amount and frequency of such use. CCD e-mail systems cannot be used for personal gain.
Help conserve e-mail resources. If you flood the system with trivia, it will not be available for other, more worthwhile uses. Never send junk mail or "Who are you?" messages.
Limit your use of lists as much as possible. Many of the global e-mail lists are available in other forms such as the World Wide Web. If you subscribe to a list, always make sure you know how to unsubscribe from that list, and do so when you no longer have a use for the information from the list, or when you are going to be away from the CCD for an extended time.
Be careful when sending to e-mail lists. Sending large messages to lists that have hundreds of users can dramatically impact both the e-mail system you are using to send the message and the e-mail systems receiving the message.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG 1999-200(1


Before sending to any list or replying to any message from a list, make sure you know the guidelines and policies of that list and you are aware of where your message is going (to the whole list, or just the person that sent the original message).
Let integrity and honesty guide your use of e-mail, and it will be an effective, useful tool.
Student Grievance Procedure
CCD has a grievance procedure for students who believe their rights have been violated. If you have a grievance, contact the vice president for Student Services no later than 15 days after the occurrence.
The Grievance Procedure for Students begins on page 28 of this catalog. Additional copies are available in the Student Life Office (Tivoli Student Union, room 309) and the Office of the vice president for Student Services (South Classroom Building, room 305).

In spring 1999, Alpha Mu Mu once again was named a five-star Distinguished Chapter, and it received the international "Fellowship Hallmark Award." In addition, its 1999 president was tapped the Distinguished Chapter President and the immediate past president received the Distinguished Regional Officer Award. CCD's PTK chapter is ranked number eight among the top 100 U.S. chapters.
For more information, interested and eligible students should contact any current executive board member or the faculty sponsors by calling 303-556-3845, or 303-365-8300.
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 28 of this catalog.
A detailed copy of "Students' Rights and Responsibilities" is available in the Student Life Office (Tivoli Student Union, room 309) and the Office of the vice president for Student Services (South Classroom Building, room 305).
Student Right-to-Know Information
Of the 455 first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students who entered CCD in the fall of 1994, 30.5 percent either had graduated or transferred to a Colorado public four-year institution at the end of three academic years (by the end of summer 1997). Another 9.0 percent were enrolled still at CCD in fall 1997. The overall completion, transfer and persistence rate of 39.6 percent (30.6 percent plus 9.0 percent) is comparable to the statewide community college average of 40.4 percent during the same time period. When transfers to other Colorado community colleges are considered the overall rate is 44.6 percent.

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 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, fac-
ulty 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: any 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 Informal Grievance Procedure
Grievant is encouraged to resolve the issue with the respondent or his/her supervisor. In the case of grievances based on 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 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 is 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 hear-


ing. 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 recommen-dation(s) to resolve the issue(s). The vice president for Student Services or designee's 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 president's 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 for Instruction or other person designated by the president shall perform the duties of the vice president for Student Services.

REQUIREMENTS
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 center 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 program's 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 hfelong 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 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 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 satisfies 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.
30
COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG 1999-2000


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.

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's graduating class.
If you receive an "I" grade in a course required for graduation in your final semester, you will not graduate until the semester in which the "I" grade 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.

4. Degrees and certificates will be granted during the semester in which the final requirements are completed. For example, if you receive an "I" grade in a course required for graduation in your final semester, you will not graduate until the semester in which the "I" grade 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 center 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.
Petitioning for Waivers and/or Program Substitutions
Due to extenuating circumstances, you may wish to petition for a waiver and/or substitution of program requirements.
You must complete a "Waiver/Program Substitution Request Form." The form is available in each instructional center office.

Non-Traditional Learning Programs
College-level courses are offered at times, days and locations convenient for people who cannot enroll in weekday on-campus college classes. Non-Traditional Learning courses cover the same material as do traditional classes and are offered for the same credit. Most of the offerings qualify as core courses that can apply toward certificate or degree programs.
Guided Independent Study courses require an amount of work from the average student equal to 135 hours for a 3-credit course (approximately six to nine hours of work per week during a 15-week semester). Guided Independent Study credit hours are based on identical instructional outcomes and objectives as traditional classroom credit hours and on CCD's existing curricula. These courses demand an equal commitment from you as would any class offered on campus.

ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE
University Parallel, Transfer Program
An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, business, social sciences, 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.
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 missing information, and interpreting graphic data and assessing the importance of the portrayed trends.

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 selfselect 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 center 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.

Business Technology
Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Technology
These Business Technology program options are designed to prepare students for entry-level positions and advancement in business, governmental and medical agencies and other institutions that employ persons in secretarial and administrative support areas.
Occupational opportunities and salaries vary by skill, educational training, level of work experience and geographic location. As businesses increase the use of word processing and as electronic and voice message systems improve and expand, secretaries and administrative assistants will continue to increase their efficiency. While these modernizations reduce demand for some secretarial services, there is a trend toward delegating some administrative and managerial work to secretaries. Given the many technological advances, there are many personal skills, such as scheduling meetings and conferences, training other office support workers and making travel arrangements, that cannot be automated. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects about 514,000 openings per year in the future, primarily from replacement needs. Highly qualified secretaries and administrative assistants with the ability to integrate software systems increasingly will be in great demand.

COLLEGE 26 POLICIES & ACADEMIC STANDARDS 22. Aiding and/or encouraging o th ers in commi tting or inciting others to commit any act of misconduct set forth in 1 through 21 above Electronic Communications Policy CCO has adopted the following policy to guide usage of all forms of e l ectronic communication. For purposes of thi s policy sta tem ent, electronic communication includes, but is not limited to, electronic mail, Intern et serv ices voice mail audio and video confere ncing, and facsimile mes sages that are sent or received by faculty, staff, stu dents, and other authorized users of CCO resources. I. Ownership of Electronic Communication and Permissible Uses CCO provides various forms of e lectronic comm wucation to facilitate the conduct of academic pursuits and other CCO business The records crea ted are the propert y of CCO and not of th e individuals sending or receiving such mess ages. Individuals who are authorized to use elec troni c and voice mail may make incidental and occasional personal use of these facilities when s uch use does not ge nerat e a direct cost for CCO. In doing so, u sers acknowledge CCO's ownership of the systems and it s rights with regard to u se. ElectrOIuc communications cond uct is expected to meet the standards of conduct, laws, regulat ions, e tc., published in official CCO, s tate, or federal documents including, but not limited to the CCO catalog, CCO Student Code of Conduct, the Fac ult y Handbook and the Colorado State Employees Handbook. II. Prohibited Uses Prohibited uses include, but are not limited to: use of electronic commw-ucation for comme rcial pur poses. use of elec troni c commw-uca tion to send cop ies of documents in violation of copyright laws. transmission of information, access t o whic h is restricted by laws or regulations. use of e lectronic commw-ucation to intimidate, threaten or harass other individuals, or to interf ere with the ability of others to conduc t CCO business. forging of commw-ucation so it appears to be from someone e lse. obtaining or attempting to ob tain unauthorized access to data, files, other electronic commw-ucation, etc. Any unauthorized attempt to br each secur ity measures to access or acquire electronically s tor ed information is prohibited. These acts are prohibited regardless of the methods utilized. The term "access" includes reading deleting, moving, chang ing access privileges, or affecting files data, etc., in any unauthorized manner. use of chain letters. III. CCO Access and Disclosure The contents of e-mail messages back up s and arcluves may be required to be disclosed as a result of lega l disco v ery, writ, warrant or subpoena, or as a result of a request under the Colorado Open Records Law. CCO will not monitor elec t ronic commw-ucation as a routine matter. E-mail will not be backed up. Message contents will be inspected as needed to protect health, safety or security. IV. Oisciplinary Actio n If a violation of policy is suspec t ed, computer support s taff and other CCO personnel will refer the matter t o the vice president for Information Resources and Planning. If a condition exists where Oepartment of Information Resource s and Planning staff believes there is a need for immediate action, that action (account deactivation, etc ) will be taken and the matter referred to the authori ti es listed above. These cases will be limited to instances involvin g safety, security, matters of an emergency nature, or thos e items described in Section II Prohibited Uses. V. E-mail Ethics and Good Practices E-mail is not like a phone call. More informa tion including copies of the content of your messages, is routinely recorded about the use of e-mail than about your u se of the telephone. A broader, less con trolled set of peop l e have access t o that informa tion. E-mail is not like a letter in an enve l ope and there is no easy way to mark a message "confiden tial." E-mail is most like a postcard. The contents of your me ssage may be viewed during th e mailing proce ss. If there is a problem with routing, a "postmas t er" may read your message to t ry to redirect it correctly. Your message can be forwarded or printed Don t p ut any t hing in a n e-ma il m essage that you would not want posted on a bulletin board used in a lawsuit or shared with the wro n g per son. 00 use professional, courteous language that will not embarrass you later. It's much easier to edit a m es sage before yo u send it, than to send an apology later. If yo u receive mail that was not intende d for you, send an appropriate reply to the sender. CCO's e-mail systems are deve loped and main t ained to accomplish the work of the college They can be us ed for academic pursu its and related admiIus tr a t ive tasks, abiding by all applicab l e guidelines and policies. A minimal amount of per sonal use is acceptable, however use good judgment and limit th e amount and frequency of such u se. CCO e-mail systems cannot be u sed for personal gain Help conserve email resources. If you flood the sys tem with trivia, it will not be available for other, more worthwhile u ses. Never send junk mail or "Who are yo u ?" messages. Limit your use of lists as much as possible. Many of the globa l e-mail lists are availab l e in other forms such as the World Wide Web. If you subscribe to a list, always make sure you know how to unsubscribe from that list, and do so when yo u no longer have a use for the information from the list, or when you are going to be away from th e CCO for an extended t ime. Be careful when sending to e-mail lists Sending large messages to lists that have hundreds of u sers can dramatically impact both the e-mail sys tem you are using to send the messa ge and th e e-mail sys tem s receiving the message COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER CATALOG 1999-2000

Before sending t o any list o r replying t o an y m essage from a lis t make sure you know the gui deline s and policies of th a t list and yo u are awa re of where yo ur mes sag e i s going ( to th e whole li s t or just th e person tha t s ent the origina l mes sage). Let integrity and hone s t y g uid e your u se of em ail, and it will be an effectiv e u s eful to ol.

PROCEDURE FOR STUDENTS The objective of these procedures is to provide for the prompt, fair and equitable resolution of all student griev ances. 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 vio lation 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 sex ual preference as well as sexual harassment and other provi sions of the Students Rights and Responsibilities College Policy. We hope our students will attempt to resolve prob lems 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, stu dents 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 tl1e vice president for Student Services. Definitions A. Grievant: Enrolled student, a client or volunteer who is providing a serv ice 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 grievab l e offense is any alleged action that violates or inequitably applies written college policies or procedures. The grievant must be personal ly 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 rea sonab l y 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 discrin1ination 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, vo lunteer client, fac-ulty 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 procedur e except as noted: any matter over which the college is without authority to act; grades and other academic decisions unless there i s an allegation that the decision was motivated by illegal discrin1ination ; and disciplinary actions taken pursuant to BP 4-30. Step 1 Informal Grievance Procedure Grievant is encouraged t o resolve the iss u e with the respondent or his/her supervisor In the case of griev ances based on race, color creed, natio nal origin or ances try, disability, age or gender, the grievan t may first contact the co llege employee responsible for affirmative action to seek informal resolution of the issues. If the complaint alleges fact s that might constitute a violation of SP 3-120a, concerning sexual harassment, the administrator shall inve tigate and process the complaint under that proce dure. 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 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 w ritt e n grievance is filed or referred, the vice presiden t for Student Services or designee will determine whether or not the situation is a grievable offense. The matter will be closed if the situ ation is determined not griev able 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 h ear the griev ance. A hearing will be held that will give the griev ant, respondent and others invited to appear, the opportunity to expla in 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 iss u e a decision within 10 ca lendar days of close of the hear-

PAGE 46

ing. The d ecision shall be served upon th e grievant and the respondent personally or by certified mail to the addre sses on file in the Office of Admissions, Registration and Records. The decision shall reject the grieva nce or grant the gri evance and make recommen dation(s) to resolve the issue(s). The vice president for Student Services or designee's decision is final unless a Petition for Review i s 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 pres ident will review the record and issue a written deci sion within 10 calendar days of receipt of the Petition for Review The president's decision is final. D. The vice president for St udent Services o r designee may extend the scheduling timelines described above for good cause E. U the gri evance is against the vice president for Student Services, the vice president for Instruction or ot h er person designated by the president s h all per form the duties of the vice p r esident for Student Services. 29
