The assessment test is computerized, untimed, and required approximately two hours to complete.
Students are required to meet minimum scores to enroll in specific classes. However, if the minimum scores are not achieved, this does not affect the students admission to the college.
Assessment helps students succeed by placing students into courses that are appropriate to the academic skill level. Based on the test results, an advisor can place the student in the appropriate class level. Non-degree seeking students under the age of 20 must take the assessment if they do not meet the exemption criteria. See our Web site at www.ccd.edu/test_cntr for study guides to review skills before taking the exam.

Advising is more than choosing classes, advisors are available to assist with the enrollment process, interpret placement test scores, strengthen academic skills in English, math, and reading, select classes required to earn a certificate or an associate degree, and provide information for transfer to a four-year college or university. Advisors will help plan college programs and assist in removing barriers that may interfere with success in school and life.
All first-time, full-time, degree-seeking students and any student on academic probation or suspension must see an EPAC advisor before registering. EPAC advisors will help students explore the program CCD offers in order to select a majoi field of study by completion of 12-15 credit hours in college-level courses numbered 100 or above.
Once students have selected a major and completed 12-15 hours student must meet with a case manager in the center of the program. Case managers can assist students with their educational planning guide. See College 101, page 42.

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 67 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 programs. However, at the 110 percent point, students will be placed on probation and must submit an appeal with a signed degree plan to the Financial Aid office. All credit hours taken at CCD and transfer hours are counted to determine satisfactory/measurable progress, even if no financial aid was received.
Contact Financial Aid for more information. Students denied aid, based on this policy, may appeal. Appeal forms and copies of the complete policy are available at www.ccd.edu.
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.
Eligible Non-Citizens
To be eligible for federal, state and most college financial assistance, you must be a U.S. citizen, national or eligible permanent resident non-citizen. An eligible non-citizen is one who:
1. has an Alien Registration Receipt Card (1-151 or 1-551), or is a conditional permanent resident (1-151C);
2. has an Arrival-Departure Record (I-94) from the U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service showing any one of the following designations:

The Federal Stafford Subsidized Loan is a need-based program. The interest rate is currently 6,8% and paid by the federal government while the student is enrolled in at least 6 credits. Loans have a six-month grace period prior to the first payment. Federal program limits allow students to borrow up to $3,500 per year as freshmen. Sophomores who have finished 30 credit hours of college-level work may borrow up to $4,500 per year.

Financial Aid Repayment
If you dont start attending a class, you will not receive financial aid for the class. You will be charged tuition and fees if you fail to officially withdraw by the published census date.
If you receive Title IV financial aid from CCD and then withdraw from classes or stop attending prior to the completion of 60 percent of the semester, you will have to repay a portion of the financial aid you received. The institution is required to pay back a portion to the financial aid accounts from which you were paid. That amount will be billed to you. You will also repay an amount owed to the federal government. CCD must report the amount that you owe to the U.S. Department of Education, and you will not be eligible to receive aid at CCD or ANY school until the funds are repaid.
Title IV funds include the Federal Stafford Loan programs, Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Family Education Loans to Parents and Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant.
The following formula is used to calculate the refund by CCD and the student repayment for Title IV fund recipients: Number of days not attended divided by number of days in the term multiplied by Federal aid received = Total to be repaid. There are no exceptions.
Any amount owed by the student to a grant program is reduced by 50 percent. Any amount owed by the student to a loan program will be repaid using the normal repayment schedule.
Financial aid refunds by CCD and repayments by the student will be distributed in the following order.
1. Unsubsidized Federal Loan
2. Subsidized Federal Loan
3. FFEL PLUS Loan
4. Federal Pell Grant
5. Federal Academic Competitiveness Grant
6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant

CCD recognizes that young working adults may have academic needs that are different from other students. FastStart@CCD Learning Communities help adults who require developmental courses in reading, English and math accelerate through those classes. FastStart orients first-year students to the college environment on a schedule that is compatible with their family and job obligations and keeps them from feeling socially isolated.
FastStart students can take two levels of developmental reading and English at the same time they take two levels of developmental math. They complete the first sequence during the first seven weeks of the semester and the second during the second seven weeks. Students also enroll in the 1-credit AAA 101 College 101 course. Students meet for three hours each day, two days a week for each sequence and an additional day for College 101 and review sessions.
FastStart provides students with one-on-one instruction throughout the semester and an opportunity to share their knowledge and experiences with other students in the learning community setting. An educational case manager with help from three student ambassadors monitors FastStart students' progress and directs them to whatever services they need to succeed.

Graduation Requirements
Colorado Community College System Guidelines
Colorado Community College System (CCCS) colleges have adopted guidelines for graduating with an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree in two calendar years. For more information on those guidelines, or to develop an education plan, students can contact the Educational Planning & Advising Center at 303-556-2481, or stop by SO 134 on the Auraria Campus. Satellite locations or center case managers also can provide information.
The CCCS colleges guarantee that a student will be able to complete all course work necessary to earn an AA or an AS degree from a specific CCCS college in 24 months and 60 credit hours.
Students must satisfy all the following conditions to be eligible for this guarantee.
1. Enroll at the same community college for at least four consecutive semesters, excluding summer.
2. Register within one week of the beginning of registration for each semester.
3. Have completed all required developmental course work before beginning the count of two years to degree completion.
4. Enroll in and pass (with a C or better in each course) an average of 15 credit hours in course work that applies to the AA/AS in each of four consecutive semesters.
5. Obtain a recommended Plan of Study for the AA or AS degree, signed by the student and community college advisor, prior to registration for the second semester, and according to the requirements of the community college.
6. Follow the signed Plan of Study.
7. Continue with the same degree (AA or AS) from entrance to graduation.
8. Retain documentation demonstrating that all the above requirements were satisfied (advising records, transcripts, etc.).
Degree Requirements
The document you receive at graduation will list the degree or certificate only, not the area of emphasis you chose.
If you are applying for a CCD degree program, you must meet all of the following requirements. The vice president for Learning & Student Affairs may approve exceptions.
1. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 a C average. All courses considered for graduation require at least a Cor better. Students should check with their instructional center, case manager, chair or advisor for information about the requirement.
2. Complete a minimum of 60 semester hours of credit in
approved course work.
3. Complete a minimum of 15 credits at CCD in program area.
General Education Requirements
All associate degrees have general education requirements that meet goals for general education established by the Colorado State Board for 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.
CCD, the Colorado Community College System and the Colorado Commission on Higher Education have adopted the following rationale for the Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (AS) general education core curriculum, which was developed by faculty.
General education addresses the needs of all students regardless of the 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 a 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 four-year baccalaureate, degree-granting colleges and universities. Core courses are academically rigorous, high-quality classes. Students who successfully complete the core courses at CCD can be sure they will be able to compete successfully when they transfer to a four-year institution.
The core curriculum classes stimulate students to think deeply, clearly and logically about a variety of human questions. These classes provide a balanced, broad-based program that requires 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:
develop students understanding of the inter-relationships among the humanities, sciences, communications, mathematics, social sciences and arts 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.
to help students achieve personal independence and develop self-understanding, communication, math and reasoning skills.
develop students leadership and group dynamics skills.
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 Learning & Student Affairs may approve exceptions.
29


1. Earn a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 fC). Some programs may require you to earn at least a C grade in specific course work. Check with your instructional center and your advisor for information about the minimum grade point average required for graduation.

Other Graduation Policies
1. You can apply no more than six semester hours of courses numbered 299 (independent study course work) toward an associate degree program.
2. 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 topics courses, consult with your advisors about how these credits apply toward a degree.
CCD Catalog Requirements for Graduation
The graduation requirements in the CCD catalog published during the year a student starts a program at the college are the rules that apply for up to seven years or through completion.
If a student interrupts attendance for a year or more and then returns, the catalog published during the year he or she returns to CCD is the document of authority.
If graduation requirements and policies change, students may choose to follow the catalog of the year they first came to CCD or the current catalog. Students should keep a copy of the catalog published the year they enter or are re-admit-ted, but no catalog can be used that is seven years old. The instructional center or program will determine which previously earned credit hours will apply to degree requirements listed in the most current college catalog.
The catalog is not 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.
Students may petition for waivers or program substitutions by completing a Waiver/Program Substitution Request Form available in each academic center and getting approval from the program coordinator, the center dean and the vice president for Learning & Student Affairs.

The purpose of academic renewal is to allow a student the opportunity to remove a maximum of 30 semester credit hours of poor academic performance from the grade point average (GPA) calculation. The grades are not removed from the academic record; they are excluded from the GPA.
Academic Appeals Procedures
The Academic Appeals process will secure equitable solutions to problems of an academic nature that affect a student s academic progress. Academic appeals may be initiated by meeting with the Director of Educational Planning and Advising Center (south classroom 134) or with the Dean of Student Services (south classroom 301).

Academic renewal applies only to the courses taken at CCD, and may be awarded one time. The original grades and credit remain on the permanent academic transcript, but a notation indicates that Academic Renewal has been awarded and the GPA had been adjusted. Once Academic Renewal is granted, it is irreversible. Credit excluded from the GPA calculation cannot be used to satisfy the requirements for completion of a certificate or degree.
The following condition must be met to apply for Academic Renewal:
1. The student must wait a least two calendar years after the coursework was completed to apply for Academic Renewal.
2. The student must complete 6 semester credit hours during the term in which the application is submitted with grades of C or better.
3. The Academic Renewal Form must include an academic advisors or case managers signature.
4. Exclusions include a grade of D and F grades from the GPA calculations.
A student concerned about a poor academic record is encouraged to meet with an advisor or case manager to discuss other academic progress options and strategies for academic success.
The Academic Renewal Policy is only applicable to CCD. Other institutions receiving a CCD transcript for transfer of an Academic Renewal are not bound by this college policy and may choose to calculate the students transfer GPA to include all grades, even those excluded by CCD under this policy.
Students applying for Academic Renewal are responsible for investigating the potential impact of Academic Renewal on transfer admission, financial aid, Veterans benefits, and other agencies and organizations.
ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY
CCD students are expected to behave as responsible members of the college community, and to be honest and ethical in their academic work. CCD strives to provide students with the knowledge, skills, judgment, and wisdom they need to function in society as educated adults. Any student who presents false or made-up research; plagiarizes or presents the work of someone else as his or her own; or cheats on an examination corrupts the essential process of higher education. That student performs a great disservice to him or herself and to the college. Everyone in the CCD community students, faculty and staff share the responsibility of challenging or reporting academic dishonesty. Read the entire policy including the Guidelines for Academic Integrity and Academic Dishonesty Complaint Procedures at www.ccd.edu. A detailed, printed copy of the Academic Integrity Policy is available in the office of the vice president for Learning & Student Affairs, SO 301.
ACADEMIC STANDARDS
Attendance
Regular and punctual attendance is expected, and each instructor will keep a complete record of student attendance for the entire length of each course. Students will be counted absent from missed class meetings, beginning with the first official date of enrollment or the first day of classes, whichever is later. Faculty may give a failing grade to any student who has missed at least 15 percent of a class, after the first class meeting. Stu-
dents are responsible for properly processing a withdrawal from a class if they want to avoid receiving a failing grade. Students must provide instructors with a valid reason for an absence in a timely manner. Students are responsible for learning the material that was taught during the absence and completing all class assignments.
The attendance policy for health care and certain other programs, may differ because of clinical requirements or rules set by approving agencies.
CCD GRADE POLICY
CCD students are evaluated using a letter-grade system that uses A, B, C, D and F for most classes. The following explains what each grade means. For more information, visit www.ccd. edu, consult the course syllabus, ask the instructor to explain his or her grade system, or contact the vice president for Learning & Student Affairs at 303-556-3598.

ACADEMIC MATTERS
CREDIT HOURS
In general, students attend 50 minutes of lecture or class each week, for 15 weeks, for each credit hour earned. Class time requirements differ for certain lab, lecture/lab and hybrid courses. Typically, students spend a minimum of two hours on class assignments for every one hour class.
GRADE CHANGES
The faculty member who gave the grade is the only one who can change it. If the instructor is not available to consider the grade change, the instructional dean will work with the vice president for Learning & Student Affairs to approve the change. Grade changes must be requested through the center.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE
Grade points measure a students achievement for the number of credits completed. The grade point average or GPA is calculated by multiplying 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 (Satisfactory, Unsatisfactory, SP, I, W, AU, AW) are not calculated into the CCD GPA.
The following example will help you calculate your grade point average:
Course ANT 111 Physical Anthropology Credits 3 Grade A Points 12(3x4)
BIO 111 General College Biology 5 A 20(5 x 4)
CIS 115 Introduction to Computing 3 B 9 (3 x 3)
ENG 121 English Comp. Essay Writing 3 D 3(3x1)
POS 111 American Government 3 F 0 (3 x 0)
Totals 17 41
Total grade points divided by total credits equals the cumulative grade point average. Therefore, the grade point average for the above example is 41 divided by 17 for a 2.41 GPA.
REPEATING COURSES
All college-level courses may be repeated. Each registration for the course and each grade received will be listed on the transcript. The transcript notation will follow the course indicating that the course was repeated and designating whether the course will be included in the GPA. There will be no limitation on course grades that are eligible for repeat. Repeating a course may impact a students financial aid eligibility.
Repeated courses may be applied only one time to a certificate or degree, except for variable credit courses and designated courses that may be repeated within program requirements.
If students do not see the repeated designation, they may submit a petition to repeat form to Admissions, Registration & Records.

II. Policy Statement: The Center and its constituent institutions prohibit sexual assault, attempted sexual assault and other sexual offenses on property owned or controlled by the Center or its constituent institutions, at institutionally-sponsored or supervised activities, or at functions of recognized student organizations. The Federal Bureau of Investigations National Incident Based Reporting System of the Uniform Crime Report defines a sex offense in general as any sexual act directed against another person, forcibly and/or against the persons will; or not forcibly or against the persons will where the victim is incapable of giving consent.
Penalties for violations of this policy or the internal polices of the Center or its constituent institutions by their employees or students are determined by their specific internal policies and procedures but may include termination or expulsion for instances of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault, and lesser penalties, including suspension, probation and assessment of financial penalties for other offenses, as appropriate.
III. Sexual Assault Prevention on the Auraria Campus: The Auraria Campus institutions provide ongoing education about sexual assaults and prevention through new student orientation programs that take place during each fall and spring semester, and through scheduled educational programming through campus activities offices. The Auraria Campus Police Department offers sexual assault education and information programs to Auraria Campus students and employees upon request. For Center or institution specific information or literature on sexual assault education and campus response, contact the representatives listed in Section I of this Policy.
IV. Sexual Assaults / Offenses: Students who believe they have been the victims of a sexual assault or attempted sexual assault on the Auraria Campus should first ensure that they are in a place that is safe and that they are receiving any necessary medical treatment.
Students should report any incident of sexual assault or attempted sexual assault immediately to the Auraria Campus Police Department at 303-556-5000, or by dialing 911 from any campus telephone. Reports may be made anonymously. Students may also report to their institutions representative listed in Section I, a faculty member or an administrative official. In the interests of campus safety, the representative, faculty or staff member should immediately notify the Auraria Campus Police of the incident and also may be required to report the incident in accordance with their institutions internal policiessee paragraph V.5 below. The identity of the student involved in or reporting the incident is not essential for reporting see paragraph V.6 below.
If they wish, students may have the assistance of campus administrative staff in reporting incidents of sexual assault. Care should be taken in such instances to file the report as soon as possible after the incident and to preserve all physical evidence of the crime to aid in the police
investigation. These procedures are particularly important in the case where the assailant is unknown to the victim and may be a threat to the campus community.
V. Options for Student Victim of Sexual Assaults / Other Sexual Offenses: The victim of an alleged sexual assault, a threatened sexual assault, or other sexual offenses on the Auraria Campus has several options that may be pursued individually or in combination with other options:
1. To get immediate crisis counseling (24 hours a day) contact the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program (RAAP) hotline (303-322-7273).
2. To file criminal charges with the police department. (In this case, the victim will likely be interviewed by police investigators and possibly by government attorneys, and if the case goes to trial, will likely be called to testify in court.)
3. To file a civil lawsuit or restraining order request against the accused. (In this case, the victim may need a private attorney to assist with these options, and the victim will likely be required to give testimony in court.)
4. To file charges against an accused assailant through the Center or institutions appropriate process. If the victim chooses this option, he or she can expect:
a. To be interviewed by an official designated by the Center or institution, who will develop a written incident statement and explain the complaint and disciplinary process;
b. To be notified whether the charge will result in a hearing following the preliminary review by the Center or institutions officials;
c. To give testimony and to answer questions about the case before an official or board, the accused and an advocate for the accused, should the charge result in a hearing;
d. To be afforded those rights available to the accused as outlined in the Center or institutions specific student code of conduct or employment policies;
e. That both the victim and the accused will be informed of the outcome, except when prohibited by law, of any hearing that may take place;
f. That the incident may be referred for criminal prosecution independent of the Center or institutions internal process.
5. Inform Center or institution officials without filing formal charges. However, the Center or institution may have a legal obligation to investigate the incident and take action against the accused. In that case, the victim can have the same expectations as described in subparagraphs 4.a-f above.
6. Make an anonymous report to a campus official without including student identifiers.
Special notes:
1. Student victims have the option to request adjustments to their academic schedules after a reported sexual assault, if such changes are reasonably available. Each such request will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the students institution.
2. Both the accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during any disciplinary hearing.
3. Both the accuser and the accused will be informed of the outcome, except when prohibited by law, of any Center or institutional disciplinary proceeding that is brought alleging a sex offense.
VI. Support for Victims: Students who are victims of sexual offenses have access to various confidential counseling options with staff that are specifically trained in the area of sexual offenses and crisis intervention. Victims of sexual offenses can be seen confidentially through the Health

Certificates & Degrees
ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE EMPHASES
University Parallel, Transfer Program
An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, social sciences, arts or humanities. Some students work toward the AA 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. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
The AA degree sometimes is 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 Colorado. Students graduating with the AA degree may transfer into liberal arts programs in most 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 134.
Student Performance Objectives for Transfer Education
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.
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.
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.
Students will demonstrate orally and in writing the critical-thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
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.
AA Degree Program Entry
Students must apply for entry to the AA degree program. Students are encouraged to apply to a program by the time they have completed 12 credits of 100-level college-transfer courses. At the time of application, students are encouraged to identify an area of study.
Program application forms are in South Classroom Building 134 and all academic center offices. Students should obtain an Advising Transcript from Admissions, Registration & Records and attach it to the program application.
Program Admission Requirements_______________________________________
1. Meet minimum assessment scores or prerequisites required for general education courses in the program.
2. Meet with a faculty program advisor and obtain an authorized signature.
AA Degree Program Requirements
Within the AA degree, the college offers 13 areas of program study: Art, Behavioral Sciences, Business Administration, Early Childhood Education, Economics, Elementary Education, English/Journalism/Literature, Foreign Languages, Graphic Design, History, Multimedia, Music, Political Sciences, and Theatre. The same course may not count toward both general education requirements and toward an area of study. An area of study consists of four identified courses in one academic area. If students do not select an area of study or have fewer than 60 credit hours with their core courses and area of study, they should take transfer electives as needed to complete the 60 credit hours required for the AA degree. Up to 3 credits of physical education may apply toward this degree. All general education core and capstone courses must be completed with a C grade or better. All graduates of the AA degree must meet the following program requirements.

ASSOCIATE OF GENERAL STUDIES DEGREES
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.
Associate of General Studies Generalist Degree (AGS-G)
In addition to the general education core requirements, the degree allows students to self-select 24-26 credits of transfer and/or career and technical education (CTE) courses. The general education core courses fully meet the general education requirements of all baccalaureate schools. Transfer-ability of career courses is not guaranteed. If students select this option, they should consult with a faculty advisor or educational case manager. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going full time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, because of personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
Any CCD career/CTE course from any CCD location may count as an elective for the AGS-G degree. Program applications and advising are available in Plaza 262.
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 CTE programs. The CTE courses are fully transferable only into the particular program and college identified by the articulation agreement. Consult with a faculty advisor/case manager.
Students must apply for entry. At the time of application, students must identify which Associate of General Studies degree program they want to enter. Program application forms are in SO 134, and appropriate academic center offices. Entry requirements are the same as for the matching A.A.S. degree.
Program Admission Requirements_______________________________________
See individual articulated degree options.
Credit Hours
Credits are the hours of credit awarded to the course. An associate degree requires a minimum of 60 credits. Credit hours in parenthesis, e g., (3), are options from which students may choose. They are not included in the total credit hours listed below. An average full-time student course load is 15 credit hours. An AGS degree of 60 credit hours takes four semesters of 15 credits each semester, assuming that all courses count toward the degree.

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS) DEGREE EMPHASES
University Parallel, Transfer Program
The AS degree provides a learning foundation in mathematics and the sciences. Although some students work toward the AS degree for personal enrichment, many plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue work toward a baccalaureate degree and professional training in such fields as engineering, medicine, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics. A student can complete this program in four semesters, going fulltime and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion.
The AS 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 Colorado baccalaureate colleges and universities in the state of Colorado. Students graduating with the AS degree may transfer into liberal arts or sciences 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 134.
Student Performance Objectives for Transfer Education (AS Degree)
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.
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 others speeches and be able to evaluate others speeches.
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. Students will demonstrate orally and in writing the critical-thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation.
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.
AS Degree Program Requirements
Within the AS degree, the college offers 13 areas of study: Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, Pre-Engineering, Mathematics, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-Physical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Vet-erinary Science, Physics, and Pre-Aerospace. An associate degree can be earned without completing a study area. Students must complete a total of 60 credit hours for the associate degree. Of the 60 hours, 24 credit hours may come from courses within a study area. The same course cannot count toward both a general education and an area of study. Requirements in four-year or professional programs sometimes change yearly. Students should meet regularly with their faculty advisor or center case manager to ensure satisfactory progress is being made toward completion of the AS degree and transferability of credit to a four-year institution or professional program.
Colorado four-year institutions have worked with the community colleges in developing Guarantee Transfer courses. Any course that is followed by parenthesis are Guarantee Transfer courses and part of this agreement. The parenthesis have the area and level that the course may transfer into a Colorado four-year institutions.

Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-Basic
"Not Financial Aide Approved" The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)-Basic certificate option in the Emergency Medical Services (EMS) program provides students with the knowledge and skills necessary to obtain employment in ambulance, rescue, or other pre-hospital emergency service settings. Program graduates provide direct patient care, scene management, and patient transportation under the direction of EMS service physician advisors. Courses within the EMT-Basic certificate program must be taken in specific succession for students to be eligible to sit for the EMT-Basic National Registry certification exams.
Elective courses in the EMS program are either: 1) admission-selective courses which require that a student must be EMT-Basic certified and admitted into the EMS program to enroll in EMS courses or 2) open enrollment courses which allow students with an interest in the subject to enroll in EMS courses. Admission-selective courses provide students with EMT-Basic certification with knowledge and skills needed for additional certifications or increased job marketability. Open enrollment courses are particularly suited for students with an allied health background.

TRANSFERRING CREDIT TO CCD 1. CCO evaluates and transfers credits from regionally accredited institutions recommended by the American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions officers (AACRAO) and as specified by legislated and Colorado community college System (CCCS) articulation agreements. These agreements may be reviewed at www.cccs.edu and www.aqip.org. 2 The CCCS has established a common course numbering system and guaranteed transfer agreement (GT pathways) among Colorado State colleges and universities. The GT pathways agreement guarantees the transfer of certain general studies courses. Colleges and universities outside Colorado are not considered part of the guaranteed transfer agreement or the common course numbering system. The common course numbering system and GT pathways can be reviewed at www.cccs.edu. 3 CCO can perform a transcript evaluation after the student has registered for and is attending classes at the college. 4. Admissions, Registration & Records will evaluate transcripts on a course-by-course basis. Courses to be considered for transfer must be offered at CCO, equivalent to CCO courses and have a grade of c or better. Students will need to meet with their program advisor or educational case manager to determine how the accepted transfer credit will apply to their intended program. 5. Courses with a "pass" or "satisfactory" will only transfer if the official transcript is documented indicating that "pass" or "satisfactory" is equivalent to a c or higher. 6. Graduate and/or Doctoral level course work will not automati cally transfer into CCO. This will need the Dean approval of the specific degree program. 7. Course work beyond 10 years will not automatically transfer. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure the course is not obsolete or the course content is not equivalent. 8. Preliminary transfer evaluation can only be assessed in person. The college cannot provide any official evaluation via phone, e-mail or fax. 9 Students who have attended international institutions and want their transfer credits evaluated will need to also provide official transcripts from the international institution attended along with the certified English translation.

Satisfactory Progress I-Incomplete The Incomplete" grade is a temporary grade and is designed for students who because of documented ill ne s or circumstan ces beyond their control are unable to complete their course work \ .vithin the semester, but have completed a majority of the course work (defined as at least 75 percent of all course assignments and tests) in a satisfactory manner (grade C or bette r). If c ircumstances beyond th e student's control prevent the student from completing a test or assignments a t the end of the term, then it is the student's responsibility to initiate the request for an "Incomplete" grade from the instructor. The instructor w ill determine whether the student has a reasonable c hance of satisfactori l y completing the remaining course activities in a timely manner. In requesting a n "Incompl ete" grade the student must present the instructor with documentation of circumstance justifying a n "Incompl ete" grad e. The instructor will sign an "Incomplete Grad e Contract" and submit it to the Academic Chair \ith final grad es for the semester. While waiting for the work to be completed, the instructor will ass ign an Incomplete Grade on the reg ula r grade Students are encouraged to let instructors know, as soon as possible, if they are having difficulties with any part of the course. In the event that a student and instructor cannot reach resolution concerning an Incomplete, then th e student should contact the vice president of Learning & Academic Affairs. Incomplete grades that are not converted to a letter grade by th e instructor after one subsequent semester (not including ummer semester) will revert to an F grade. If the student would have earned a letter grade higher than an F without completing the work, faculty s hould be e ncouraged to submit that higher grade before the automatic co nversion to F. S -Satisfactory The satisfactory grade is equiva l ent to a grade of "C or better". The course will count in attempted and earned credits, but will not carry qu ality points.

Each registration for the cow'se and each grade received will be listed on the tran scJi pt. The tran cript notation will follow the co urse indi cat ing that the course was repeated and designating whether the course will be included in the GPA. There will be no limitation on course grades that are eligib l e for repeat. R epeating a course may impact a student' s financial aid eligibility. Repeated courses may be a pplied only o n e time to a certifi cate or degree except for variable credjt courses and de ignat ed courses that may be repeated w ithi n program requirements. If students do not see the repeated designation, they may submit a "petition to repeat form" to Admissions R egistration & R ecords. 35

Auraria Higher Education Cent e r Chief of Police Auraria Campus Police Department 1201 5th Street Campus Box E PO Box 173361, Denver, CO 80217 -3361 303-556-5000 II. Policy Statement: The Center and its co n s titu ent institutions prohibit sexual assault, attempted sexua l assault and other sex ual offenses on property owned or co nt rolled by the Center or its constituent institutions at in titutionally-spon sore d or supervised ac tiviti es, or at f1Jnctions of recognized student organizations. Th e Federal Bureau of Investigation's ational In cident B ase d R eporting System of the Unjform Crime R eport define a sex offense in general as "any exual act direct ed against another person, rorcibly and/or against the person's will; or not forcibly or against the person's will where the victim i s incapable of giving consent." P ena lti es for vio l ations of this policy or the inter nal polices of the Center or its const ituent institutions by their employees or s tud ents are determined b their pecific interna l policies and procedures but may include terminat i on or expulsion for instances of sexual assault or attem pted sexual assault, and Ie er penalties, including suspension, probation and asse sment of financial penal ties for other offense as appropriate. III. Sexual Assaul t P r event ion on t h e Aur aria Campu s : The Auraria Campus institutions provide ongoing e du cation about sex u a l assaults and prevention through new student ori entation programs that take plac e during each fall and prin g a nd through sc h eduled e du cational program ming through campus activitie offices. The Auraria Cam pus Polic e D e partm e nt offers sex ual assa ult and information programs to Auraria Campus students and e mplo yees upon re qu est. For Center or in st ituti on s p ecific information or literature on sexual a sa ult e ducation and campus re spo n se, contact the representatives lis t e d in S ec tion I of this Policy. IV. Sexual Assaults / Offenses: Students who beli eve they hav e been the victims of a sexual assault or attempted exua l as sau l t on th e Auraria Campus should first ensure that they are in a place that is safe and that the y are receiving any n ecessary medical treatm ent. Stud ents hould report any incident of sexual assault or a tt e mpt ed sexua l assault immediately t o the Auraria Campus Poli ce Department at 303-556-5000, or b y dialing '911' rYom any campus telephone. R epo rt s may be made anonymous ly. Students may also report to their institu tion's r epresentat i ve lis ted in S ection I a faculty member or an admini trative official. In the interest of campu safety, the repre entative, facult y or staff member s h o uld immediately notify the Auraria Campus P olice of the in cide nt a nd also may be required to report the incident in accordance with their instituti on's int ernal policies-ee paragraph Y.5 below The identity of the student involved in or reporting the incident is not essentia l for reportingsee paragraph V.6 below. If they wish, students may have the a sistance of cam pus admini strative staff in reporting incidents of sexua l assault. Care hould be taken in such inst ances to file the report a soon as possible after the incident and to pre serve all physi ca l evide n ce of the crim e to aid in the police investigation Th ese procedures are particularly important in the case where th e assaj l a nt i s unkn ow n to the victim a nd may be a threat to the cam pus community V Options for Student Victi m of Sexual Assaults / Other Sexual Offenses: The victim of an allege d sexual assault, a threat e n e d sex ual assa ult or ot her sex ual offenses on the Aura ria Campus has several opt i ons that may be pur u e d indi vid u a ll y or in combination with other options: 1. To get immediate crisis counseling (24 hours a day) contact the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program (RAAP) hotline (303-322-7273). 2. To file criminal charges with the police department. (In this case, the victim will likely be interviewed by police investigators and possibly by government attorneys, and if the case goes to trial, will likely be called to testify in court. ) 3. To file a civil lawsuit or restraining order request against the accused. (In this case, the victim may need a private attorney to assist with these options, and the victim will likely be required to give testimony in court.) 4 To file charges against an accused assailant through the Center or institution's appropriate process. If the victim chooses this option, he or she can expect: a. To be interviewed by an official designated by the Center or institution, who will develop a written incident statement and explain the complaint and disciplinary process; b. To be notified whether the charge will result in a hearing following the preliminary review by the Center or institution's officials; c. To give testimony and to answer questions about the case before an official or board, the accused and an advocate for the accused, should the charge result in a hearing; d To be afforded those rights available to the accused as outlined in the Center or institution's specific student code of conduct or employment policies; e. That both the victim and the accused will be informed of the outcome, except when prohibited by law, of any hearing that may take place; f That the incident may be referred for criminal prosecution independent of the Center or institution's internal process. 5 Inform Center or institution officials without filing formal charges. However, the Center or institution may have a legal obligation to investigate the incident and take action against the accused. In that case, the victim can have the same expectations as described in subparagraphs 4.a-f above. 6 Make an anonymous report to a campus official without including student identifiers. Special n o t es : 1. Student victims have the option to request adjustments to their academic schedules after a reported sexual assault if such changes are reasonably available. Each such request will be handled on a case-by-case basis by the student's institution. 2. Both the accuser and the accused are entitled to the same opportunities to have others present during any disciplinary hearing. 3 Both the accuser and the accused will be informed of the out come, except when prohibited by law, of any Center or institutional disciplinary proceeding that is brought alleging a sex offense. VI. Support for Victims : Students who are victims of sexual offenses have access to various confident i al cou n seling options with staff that are spec ific ally trained in th e area of sexual offenses and crisis intervention.

45 ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE EMPHASES University Parallel, Transfer Program An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, social sciences, arts or humanities. Some students work toward the AA degree for purposes of personal enrichment. Many others plan to t ransfer 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 s ciences. A student can complete this program i n four semesters, going full-time and carrying the required number o f hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to e xtend the amount of time for completion. The AA degree sometimes is referred to as a "university parallel" o r "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 Colorado. Students graduating with the AA degree may transfer into liberal arts programs in most public baccalaureate colleges a n d universities with junior standing. Courses to be counted toward the general education core curriculum mus t be completed with a grade of C or higher.

Although some students work toward the AS degree for personal enrichment, many plan to transfer to four-year colleges and universities to continue work toward a baccalaureate degree and professional training in such fields as engineering, medicine, mathematics, biology, chemistry and physics. A student can complete this program in four semesters, gOing full time and carrying the required number of hours. A student may choose, due to personal circumstances, to extend the amount of time for completion. The AS degree is sometimes referred to as a "university parallel" or "transfer" degree. The general education core requirements, when complet ed at CCD, meet the lower-division general education requirements of all public Colorado baccalaureate colleges and universities in the state of Colo rado. Students graduating with the AS degree may transfer into liberal arts or sciences 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 134. Student Performance Objectives for Transfer Education (AS Degree) Students will plan and write well-structured compositions demonstrating the writing capabilities to express, inform, analyze, evaluate, persuade, ar gue, conduct research, and use primary and 'secondary sources logically and stylistically. 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 others' speeches and be able to evaluate others' speeches. Students will read and think critically about a variety of interdisciplin ary topics, demonstrating college-level reading skills in a variety of disciplines, including humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences. Students will demonstrate orally and in writing the critical-thinking skills of analysis, synthesis and evaluation. Students will analyze and use numerical data and qualitative reasoning skills, including applying proper formulas to mathematical data and calculating results, illustratin g quantitative data g raphically, rearranging general formulas to solve for any missing information, and interpreting graphic data and assessing the importance of the portrayed trends. AS Degree Program Requirements Within the AS degree, the college offers 13 areas of study: Biology, Chemis try, Computer Science, Pre-Engineering, MathematiCS, Pre-Dental, Pre-Medical, Pre-Pharmacy, Pre-PhYSical Therapy, Pre-Physician Assistant, Pre-Vet erinary SCience, Physics, and Pre-Aerospace. An associate degree can be earned without completing a study area. Students must complete a total of 60 credit hours for the associate degree. Of the 60 hours, 24 credit hours may come from courses within a study area. The same course cannot count toward both a general education and an area of study. Requirements in four year or professional programs sometimes change yearly. Students should meet regularly with their faculty advisor or center case manager to ensure satisfactory progress is being made toward completion of the AS degree and transferability of credit to a four-year institution or professional program. Colorado four-year institutions have worked with the community colleges in developing Guarantee Transfer courses. Any course that is followed by parenthesis are Guarantee Transfer courses and part of this agreement. The parenthesis have the area and level that the course may transfer into a Colorado four-year institutions.
