COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER 2015-2016 CATALOG
WELCOME TO
OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
MESSAGE FROM EVERETTE J. FREEMAN
I am concluding my first year as president of Community College of Denver. As I enter my second year, I suppose I would be considered a rising freshman or a newly-minted sophomore. Either way, Im finding CCD a delightful haven of intellectual growth and curiosity. Thats exactly the thing that makes CCD so special. It encourages growth and curiosity.
It is becoming more prevalent these days to refer to community college as having admissions policies that are rooted in guided enrollment rather than open enrollment. Dont get me wrong, CCD has no intentions of turning any students with the grit and determination to academically excel away. Like other community colleges focused on retention, persistence and graduation rather than double-digit admissions growth, CCD is seeking incoming students with a mind-set bent toward personal and academic growth. We seek to have enter our ranks men and women regardless of age or any other consideration who are open-minded, curious and perfectly willing to let us guide you toward your academic goals.
This growth mind-set acknowledges a couple of key things. First, that college is a personal and family investment that will require sacrifices. No more marathon television watching. No more partying til the wee hours of the morning. In some cases, very little time to be the always available spouse, sibling or responsible home-care provider. At bottom, college requires hard choices. Second, the choice means that you will become more different and, perhaps, more unknowable to those believing that they know you well. They know the old you. The new you they will have to come to know on your new growth terms. Let me give you an example. A first-generation college mom attending CCD may soon discover that green vegetables retain their nutrients best if microwaved rather than boiled in a pot. She changes her cooking methods and her sisters berate her for trying to act better than they are even despairing that Big Mama never cooked that way. If this situation resembles one that you have faced, you have to stiffen your back with the sure knowledge that, well, knowledge is power and your family members may eventually come around.
This growth mind-set carries with it a huge portion of curiosity. In fact, your curiosity may have given rise to your growth mind-set whether you are a recent high school graduate or a sea-
soned worker wishing to retool for a better life, curiosity has driven you to see CCD as a part of your immediate plans. Good choice again. Denver, this majestic city that we call home, has its roots in pioneers and settlers some First Nation people and other late followers who curiously ventured out into the unknown to make Colorado and the Denver metropolitan area home. Without curiosity there is no possibility for growth and you have set into motion spectacular personal growth by being open to the new and unknown.
Growth and curiosity ignite what CCD does best; namely, direct and guide our students on a journey of intellectual development unlike any other. If you are willing, open and determined to hold onto your curiosity, our incredible faculty, advisors and staff stand ready to guide you through your chosen academic course of study toward whatever those big dreams you possess may be. What we ask simply is that you take the investment of your precious time and resources as seriously as we do. If we push you, it is because
we care and know fully that you can travel this course from start to finish. If we send you far more emails and text messages than you might prefer, it is because we want to hear more from you about those new discoveries that you are making in your classes, lab and study groups. If we continue to proclaim to you that we believe you are among the best students anywhere, it is because, well, we believe it completely!
The CCD 2015-2016 Catalog provides a wealth of information about college life and educational programs that are available to you. Treat the Catalog as your academic yellow pages, namely, a book that you can always find answers to questions about courses, schedules, academic majors and their requirements and much, much more. Wear this book out and we will be all the happier. Write notes in it. Mark it up with highlighters and crayons. Dog-ear its pages and otherwise make it a book that you are not ashamed to say you completely wore out.
Highlights of what to expect at CCD:
Choose from over 100 degree or certificate programs representing options that will prepare you for a four year degree or provide job specific skills.
CCD guarantees students who graduate with an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) will be able to transfer credits to Colorado public colleges and universities.
CCD has achieved the designation of Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI).
Because 25 percent of our students are Hispanic, CCD receives federal funding and grant opportunities that offer scholarships and learning programs for HSI colleges.
The newly redesigned Developmental Education program successfully prepares students to succeed in college level work.
Several programs are available to assist students in achieving academic success including TRIO Student Support Services, the Educational Opportunity Center, the Resource Center and the Transfer Center.
With nearly 10,000 students, CCD is a community of curious, active learners who understand what it means to try and try again and grow in the doing. Try us. Stay with us. Graduate. Welcome to CCD!
Warm regards,
Everette J. Freeman j President

DIVERSITY AT CCD
CCD provides an educational environment that fosters cultural diversity, international understanding, and global awareness. CCD is dedicated to expanding access, particularly for underserved, first-generation and minority students. CCD's commitment to diversity is reflected by the student population:

56 percent of students are female.
Students of color comprise more than half of the student body.

Over 58 percent of students in 2013-2014 received financial aid awards at CCD.
CCD is an equal opportunity educational institution and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, sexual orientation, gender expression, age, veteran status, or disability.

CCD HISTORY
The Colorado Legislature created CCD in 1967. Three years later, classes began in a renovated auto showroom close to Denvers Civic Center. When enrollment increased rapidly, the college expanded into retail storefronts near the main building.
In 1975, CCD moved to the 124-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. The campus has the oldest-standing structure in Denver the former Temple Emmanuel, now the Emmanuel Gallery, an exhibition space for student and faculty artwork. It also is the only community college in the nation to share a campus with two four-year universities Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver. The three institutions share classroom buildings, a regional library, recreational facilities, a performing arts center, and a student union.
CCD is one of 13 institutions in the Colorado Community College System. It is the third largest with more than 6,000 full-time equivalent students and an unduplicated student headcount of more than 15,000. CCD is the only community college in the City and County of Denver.
CAMPUS INFORMATION
AURARIA CAMPUS
CCDs main Auraria Campus is in the heart of the city and within walking distance of downtown, Larimer Square, the 16th Street Mall, LoDo, the Denver Pavilions, Colorado Convention Center, and the Denver Center for the Performing Arts Complex. The Auraria Campus is close to Sports Authority Field at Mile High, home of the Denver Broncos; Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies; the Pepsi Center, home of the NHL Colorado Avalanche and NBA Nuggets; Elitch Gardens; and the Downtown Aquarium.
AURARIA HIGHER EDUCATION CENTER (AHEC)
Community College of Denver has a partnership with the Auraria Higher Education Center (AHEC).
AHEC is committed to providing an effective, comprehensive and supportive environment which facilitates the missions of Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and the University of Colorado Denver, including the Auraria Campus Police Department (ACPD).
SATELLITE LOCATIONS
In 1985, CCD North opened at 6221 Downing St., six miles northeast of Auraria. Until July 2015, CCD North will house two trades programs: fabrication welding and machine technologies. After July 2015, these programs will be housed at the CCD Advanced Manufacturing Center at 2570 31st St., 4 miles northwest of Auraria.
During the summer of 1999, CCDs Center for Health Sciences moved to the Lowry Campus. Former Lowry Air Force Base classrooms were renovated to house the health sciences programs. The former air force base dental clinic was adapted for CCDs Dental Hygiene program. The Lowry Campus borders east Denver and west Aurora.
In 2003, CCD entered into a unique partnership with Denver Public Schools, launching the CEC Middle College of Denver. Middle College students earn dual high school and college credit for classes they take during their junior and senior years.
Under a similar arrangement with CCD in fall 2004, DPS opened Southwest Early College, a charter school. In the students 13th year of school, they can graduate with both a high school diploma and an associates degree.
GAINFUL EMPLOYMENT
Information on occupations, rates for completion and placement, program costs, and median loan debt may be found at www.ccd.edu/ gainfulemployment.
COLLEGE GUARANTEES
WE GUARANTEE YOUR TRANSFER
To help eliminate the guesswork of transferring course credits and associates degrees, Colorado has developed a statewide guaranteed transfer program called GT Pathways (guaranteed transfer pathways) and many statewide articulation agreements. Community College of Denver adheres to these established programs and agreements to guarantee the transfer of credit.
GT Pathways applies to all Colorado public colleges and universities, including Community College of Denver. After starting at any public college or university in Colorado and, upon acceptance to another, students can transfer up to 31 credits of previously and successfully (C or better) completed GT Pathways coursework. These courses will automatically transfer and continue to count towards general education core or graduation requirements for any liberal arts or science associates or bachelors degree. Students should check with the school they wish to attend so they are clear about which credits will transfer beyond any that are guaranteed by GT Pathways.
The purpose of a statewide transfer articulation agreement is to identify the courses a student at a Colorado public community college must complete as part of an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree to be guaranteed to be able to complete a bachelors degree program (BA or BS) at any public four-year college or university that offers that bachelors degree program. Students should check with their Program Advisor at CCD and the 4-year school they wish to transfer into to ensure they are registering for the appropriate courses. These statewide transfer articulation agreements are also referred to as Degrees with Designation. For more information, see www.highered.colorado. gov/academics/transfers/students.html
Besides GT Pathways and the statewide transfer articulation agreements listed above, many colleges and universities have other transfer agreements that may apply to students. For students who complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree, 60 credit hours of their AA or AS degree are guaranteed to transfer to a Colorado public four-year school once they are accepted for admission; students may be able to finish a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree within another 60 credit hours. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan. Note that some bachelors degrees require more than an additional 60 credits to complete. When in doubt, students should speak to a Program Advisor.

LEARNING
LEARNING
To meet the diverse needs of students, Community College of Denver offers a variety of ways for students to reach their educational goals.
TRADITIONAL-STYLE COURSES
CCD offers traditional-style courses in which students are required to attend lectures and/or labs on specific days and times. Regular classes run for 15 weeks during Fall and Spring semesters and for 10 weeks during Summer semester. Classroom instruction includes a minimum of 15 hours of in-person contact per credit hour. Instruction may include lectures, small group discussions, labs, field trips, or other in-per-son delivery methods. Many traditional-style courses include online exercises.
HYBRID COURSES
Hybrid courses include both traditional-style, in-class sessions and online meetings, exercises and/or scheduled discussions. This format combines the flexibility of online courses with the opportunity to meet face-to-face with the instructor and classmates.
ONLINE COURSES CCD Online Courses: Class participation and the exchange of ideas are the foundation of CCD online courses. CCD online courses have specific beginning and ending dates and learners cover designated material with weekly due dates for assignments. Learners retain control over their daily schedules and do not need to be at the computer at a specific time on a specific day. Email access and computer literacy are required.
CCCOnline Courses: CCCOnline is a consortium of all the community colleges in Colorado. For more information, visit www. ccconline.org.
LATE-START COURSES
Late-start courses are designed to accommodate students who enroll after the term begins. Credit earned through late-start courses is identical to credit earned through any other CCD course. Class duration, start dates, and end dates vary; students should check the course schedule for complete details.
EVENING AND WEEKEND COURSES
Like traditional-style courses, evening and weekend courses require attendance on specific days and times. Many evening and weekend courses may also be late-start or accelerated and may meet for longer class sessions than traditional-style courses.
ACCELERATED COURSES
Accelerated courses offer fast-paced, intensive learning options for motivated students and are ideal for those who can work independently. Check class requirements and class dates, as some accelerated courses are also late-start courses.
LEARNING COMMUNITY COURSES
Learning Community courses are co-taught courses and are designed to enhance student learning by pairing developmental and/or college-level courses in a learning community.
INTER-INSTITUTIONAL COURSES WITH MSU DENVER & CU DENVER
CCD and neighbor institutions Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver) and University of Colorado Denver (CU Denver) have an inter-institutional agreement that allows CCD students to take select courses at MSU Denver or CU Denver if space is available. The tuition will be paid at CCD, excluding any fees that may be required. MSU Denver and CU Denver students can also take select courses at CCD if space is available. For instructions on how to register for inter-institutional courses, please refer to Inter-institutional Registration on page 19.
THE SMALL BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT CENTER
The Small Business Development Center (SBDC) provides small business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs with guidance in small business planning, start-up preparation, loan and bid package preparation, contract identification, and marketing plan development. SBDC staff works with grant writing and funding for small businesses, small business computerized databases, and information networking. Visit the SBDC at 1445 Market St. or call 303-620-8076.


COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVE 2015-2016 CATALOG
Academic Calendar: The period that makes up the school year. CCDs academic calendar consists of two 15-week semesters (Fall and Spring) and one 10-week Summer semester. There are set start and end dates for each semester. Payment, drop, registration and grading policies are set in accordance to the academic calendar. Not all classes follow the traditional 15-week (or 10-week in Summer) schedule.
Academic Progress: The college policy which dictates the minimum GPA a student must maintain to continue enrollment at CCD. Failure to meet Academic Progress requirements could also affect financial aid eligibility.
Academic Year: Students are assigned an academic year depending upon the number of college-level credit hours completed.
Freshman: Successful completion of fewer than 30 college-level semester credit hours.
Sophomore: Successful completion of 30 or more college-level semester credit hours.
Unclassified: Awarded a degree at the associate level or above.
Census Date: The last date a student can drop a class and receive a refund. Classes dropped before the census date will not appear on a students academic record. Students who withdraw from a course after census date will not receive a refund. Withdrawn courses will appear on the academic record with a grade of W. The census date varies depending upon the length of the course. Students should refer to their schedule of classes to determine the census date for each course.
Corequisite: If a course has a corequisite, students must take the course simultaneously with another. It is the students obligation to know and meet course corequisites as stated in the course description section of the CCD Catalog and the web course schedule. Corequisites will be checked at registration and the student may be dropped if the corequisite is not met.
College-Level Courses: Courses numbered 100 or higher (ex MAT 121). Grades received in college-level courses are used when calculating GPA. These courses can be used to satisfy graduation requirements.
College Opportunity Fund (COF): A stipend provided to eligible undergraduate students who are Colorado residents. The stipend pays a portion of total in-state tuition for students attending a Colorado public institution or a participating private institution. The stipend is paid on a per-credit-hour basis. The credit-hour amount is set annually by the General Assembly.
Consortium: A written agreement between two schools that allows a student to be co-enrolled at CCD and another institution and receive financial aid based on the combined enrollment at both institutions.
Course Load: The typical course load for full-time CCD students is 12 or more credit hours. For tuition and certification purposes, students who register for fewer than 12 credit hours are considered part-time during the academic year.
For enrollment verification purposes, student course load (Fall, Spring or Summer) is defined:
Twelve credits is full-time
Nine credits is three-quarter time
Six credits is half time
Less than six credits is less than half time
Developmental Courses: Courses numbered below 100 (ex. MAT 050). Grades received in developmental courses are not used when calculating GPA and these courses cannot be used to satisfy graduation requirements. These are also sometimes referred to as remedial courses.
Emancipation: For tuition classification (residency) purposes, unmarried students under the age of 23 whose parents do not live in Colorado become emancipated and are eligible to establish their own domicile upon reaching 22 years of age. Students may only establish domicile after being emancipated. Thus, an individual emancipated at age 22 may be considered for instate tuition based on their domicile in Colorado after turning 23.
FAFSA: The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) must be submitted annually in order to determine eligibility for financial aid.
FERPA: Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is a Federal law that protects the privacy of a students education records.
General Studies Advisor: An advisor who helps both new and continuing students develop an academic plan, understand academic policies and procedures, discuss placement test results and access campus resources.
GPA: Grade Point Average (GPA) is the average grade earned by a student. This is a measure of a students academic achievement and is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of credits attempted. Only grades received in college-level courses taken at CCD are used to calculate GPA.
Home Institution: For both consortium agreements and inter-institutional registration, the home institution refers to the institution from which the student is seeking a certificate or degree. Typically, the student receives financial aid from the degree-granting institution (the home institution).
Host Institution: For both consortium agreements and inter-institutional registration, the host institution refers to the institution where the student will be visiting and taking courses to transfer back to the home institution.
Inter-Institutional Registration: CCD students may take select college-level courses at MSU Denver or CU Denver under the inter-institutional agreement if space is available. Under this agreement, MSU Denver and CU Denver students may take select college-level courses at CCD if permitted by their home institution.
Late Start/Accelerated: Courses designated as Late Start/Accelerated have varying start and end dates compared to the traditional 15-week semester courses.
Major: The field of academic study in which a student specializes. The selected major will determine which courses are required for a students program of study.
Prerequisite: If a course has a prerequisite, students must have certain knowledge to be successful in the course. The prior knowledge may be demonstrated through a test score or a successful completion of a prior course (ex. must have completed CCR 092 with a grade of C or better). Completion of the prerequisite is required prior to enrolling in the course. Grades of U/D, U/F, D, F, W, or Incompletes are not acceptable. It is the students obligation to know and meet course prerequisites as stated in the course description section of the CCD Catalog and the web course schedule. Prerequisites will be checked at registration and the student may be dropped if prerequisite is not met.
Program Advisor: An advisor who is assigned to a specific academic center or special program. Program Advisors help students who have declared their program of study track their academic progress, provide information about important deadlines, assist with transfer to 4-year institutions, and answer questions regarding program completion. Sequence: Set of two or more courses in one subject area usually taken in numerical order (ex. ENG 121, ENG 122).
Withdrawal Date: The last date a student can drop a class and receive a grade of W. No refund will be given for classes withdrawn from after the census date. Students must withdraw from their course(s) via their CCD-Connect account. Students who stop attending classes without withdrawing will receive failing grades. The withdrawal date varies depending upon the length of the course. Students should refer to their schedule of classes to determine the withdrawal date for each course.

GETTING STARTED
DENIAL OF ADMISSION
The college may deny admission to anyone whose background indicates that their presence would interfere with the function of the college or would endanger the health, safety, welfare, or property of others. CCD has the right to deny admission or continued enrollment to anyone who has misrepresented their credentials or background.
PRIVACY
In applying to CCD, students must act on their own behalf. Others may not access student information without the students prior written approval (see Family Education Rights and Privacy Act on page 51).
IMMUNIZATION
All students must provide documented proof of immunization against Measles, Mumps and Rubella (MMR) to the Health Center at Auraria. For more information, please call 303-556-2525 or visit: http://www. msudenver.edu/healthcenter
Students who do not comply with the immunization requirement will receive a registration hold. The hold will not be released until the student complies with the immunization requirement.
STUDENT IDENTIFICATION NUMBER
A state law initiated in 2003 requires that each Colorado post-secondary institution assign to each student a unique ID number that cannot be a students social security number. This number is the student identification number (SID). A social security number is required for financial aid, the College Opportunity Fund, VA benefits, and records integrity and tax purposes.
TUITION CLASSIFICATION (RESIDENCY)
Tuition classification is governed by state law (Title 23, Article 7, of the Colorado Revised Statutes of1973, as amended) and by judicial decisions that apply to all public institutions of higher education in Colorado and is subject to change at any time. The college is required to apply the rides set forth in the law and does not have authority to make exceptions unless specifically permitted by law.
In-state status requires domicile in Colorado for one year prior to the first day of class. Domicile is defined as an individuals true, fixed, and permanent home and place of habitation. An individual may only have one domicile at any one time.
At the beginning of the one year period, individuals are expected to take appropriate actions to demonstrate the intent to remain in Colorado permanently. This includes, but is not limited to:
surrendering legal ties with their former state of residence,
obtaining Colorado Drivers License/Identification within the statutory period,
registering motor vehicle within the statutory period,
registering to vote in Colorado,
obtaining permanent employment in Colorado,
filing income tax in Colorado,
any other factors that document the individuals intent to establish a permanent home in Colorado.
Individuals are qualified to begin the one year domicile period upon reaching 22 years of age, and thus would satisfy the one year domicile requirement at 23 years of age. The one year domicile period also begins upon marriage or emancipation if the individual is under 22 years of age. Individuals under the age of 23 are eligible for in-state tuition if a parent or court-appointed legal guardian meets the requirements of the tuition law.
The tuition law recognizes the special circumstances regarding military personnel, honorably discharged veterans, Olympic athletes, inmates, recent Colorado high school graduates or GED recipients, and individuals who relocate to Colorado for employment purposes. Please contact Admissions, Registration & Records at 303-556-2420 for information on specific circumstances.
Active duty members of the armed forces, as well as their spouse and dependent children, whose permanent duty station is in Colorado will be charged in-state tuition, even if the permanent duty station changes, as long as the student (armed forces member, their spouse or dependent
child) is continually enrolled in classes. Service members should contact their military base Education Office for documentation.
Eligible non-U.S. citizens must provide immigration documents, which may include, but are not limited to 1-94 Arrival-Departure Record, Permanent Residency Card or other required documents.
COLORADO ASSET BILL
Senate Bill 13-033, also known as Colorado ASSET, allows U.S. Citizens, Permanent Residents, and students without lawful immigration status to receive in-state tuition through attendance and graduation from a Colorado high school or through attendance at a Colorado high school combined with obtaining the GED.
To qualify for in-state tuition under ASSET, students must:
Have attended a public or private high school in Colorado for at least three years immediately preceding the date the student either graduated from a Colorado high school or completed a general equivalency diploma in Colorado; and
Be admitted to a Colorado college or university within 12 months of graduation from a Colorado high school or completion of a Colorado GED.
Students without lawful immigration status must apply for COF and complete an affidavit stating that the student has applied for lawful presence or will apply as soon as he or she is eligible to do so.
Students without lawful immigration status who graduated or complete their GED prior to September 1,2013, but were not admitted to a college or university within twelve months after graduating or completing the GED must have been physically present in Colorado on a continuous basis for at least 18 months preceding the start of the semester.
As with the traditional domicile path, residency classification will be determined based off the information and documents submitted by the student. The burden ofproof is on the individual seeking instate tuition.
INITIAL CLASSIFICATION
Students are classified as resident or non-resident for tuition purposes based on the information provided on the Application for Admission. Failure to answer all questions could lead to initial classification as a non-resident. After the students status is determined, it remains unchanged in the absence of satisfactory evidence to the contrary.
CHANGE IN TUITION CLASSIFICATION
New students who believe their initial tuition classification was based on incomplete information and wish to prove eligibility must submit an Amended Application Form by census date of the earliest part-of-tenn in which they are enrolled. Continuing students who attended and paid non-resident tuition or individuals emancipated prior to 22 years of age shall have up to 30 days from the first day of class to complete the Petition for In-State Tuition. If sufficient evidence is not presented by the published deadline, the classification becomes final as to that term.
Information submitted to qualify for in-state classification is subject to independent verification and will not be returned to students. Individuals submitting false information or falsified supporting documents are subject to college disciplinary proceedings and may face criminal charges.
TUITION CLASSIFICATION FOR REVERSE TRANSFER DEGREES
When awarding a Reverse Transfer Degree to a non-active student, CCD will use the last known residency as listed in CCDs student information system. This will not impact tuition classification as the student will have a registration hold placed for the term in which the degree is being awarded. Students will be made inactive for any future terms and must reapply for admission if they seek re-enrollment at CCD.
APPEAL PROCEDURE
Students who are denied in-state tuition will not be allowed to drop courses after the census date. Students are responsible for dropping all
CO


courses by census date even if a decision on the Petition for In-State Tuition has not yet been received. Students who are denied in-state tuition may appeal the decision of the Tuition Classification Officer. The decision of the appeals committee is final and will not be overturned by the Colorado Department of Higher Education (CDHE).
CCD reserves the right to correct tuition classification after the deadline in cases where the college believes an error was made.
WESTERN UNDERGRADUATE EXCHANGE (WUE) PROGRAM
Students who are residents of Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) states may be eligible to request a reduced Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) tuition rate which is less than the non-resident rate. WICHE states include Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming.
Students applying for the WUE program must provide evidence of domicile in the qualifying states and will be required to reapply for WUE each academic year.
Students are not permitted to apply time spent in the WUE program toward satisfaction of residency requirements for tuition purposes. Online courses are not eligible for the WUE tuition rate.
ASSESSMENT TEST FOR PLACEMENT
The State of Colorado mandates that incoming students to Colorados state-supported institutions of higher education complete a basic skills assessment test and enroll in appropriate courses based on the test outcomes. At CCD, students must complete the Accuplacer or secure an exemption before registering for courses.
Beginning in April 2015, all CCCS institutions will be implementing a new placement exam. For the most up to date information about the exam, as well as prep materials, placement scores and fees please visit our website at: www.ccd.edu/testing
BASIC SKILLS ASSESSMENT TEST (BSAT)
Any student at CCD who wishes to enroll in courses must meet the assessment requirement by taking the Accuplacer exam. The purpose of assessment is to help students succeed by placing them in classes that are appropriate for their skill level. Based on the test results, an advisor will recommend appropriate classes to the student. The Accuplacer exam may include reading comprehension, sentence skills, essay writing and mathematics. The assessment test is computerized, untimed, and requires approximately two hours to complete. See www.ccd.edu for study guides to review skills before taking the exam.
Students are required to meet minimum scores to enroll in specific classes. If the minimum scores are not achieved, this does not affect the students admission to the college. The test scores for placement are available in the Academic Advising Center and the Testing Center.
Other Ways to Meet the Assessment Requirement:
Students may be able to receive an exemption from taking all or part of the BSAT by showing proof of one or more of the following:
ACT or SAT scores from within the past five years ACT score minimum requirements: 18 in English and 19 in math. SAT score minimum requirements: 440 on critical reading for English and 460 in math.
Transcript of successful completion of an Associate of Aits degree, Associate of Science degree, Bachelors degree. Masters degree, or Doctorate degree from a regionally accredited institution.
Successful (C or higher) completion of college level courses in English and/or math (less than 10 years old) at a regionally accredited institution.
Successful (C or higher) completion of basic skills courses in reading, writing or math (less than 10 years old) from a regionally accredited institution.
Appropriate Accuplacer scores from an approved institution from within the past five years. It is strongly recommended to take the assessment test again if scores are more than two years old.
Sufficient scores on specific Advanced Placement Exams, International Baccalaureate Exams and/or CLEP Exams from within the past five years.
Please note that all submissions to the Testing Center must include the students name, the institution, and the grades/scores as part of the transcript and be accompanied by a Transcript Intake Form. Differing names on the transcript and the students account may require additional documentation. Unofficial transcripts are acceptable as long as the applicant has met the requirements.
CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING EXAMS
The CCD Testing Center offers the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) tests and DANTES exams. Both nationally recognized tests allow students to receive college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional college classroom. See Credit for Prior Learning on page 36.

DECLARING OR CHANGING PROGRAM OF STUDY
Students should indicate their program of study when completing the Application for Admission. A student declares a program of study when first enrolling and should verily the program online via CCDConnect each semester. New students should consult this catalog or a General Studies Advisor to determine available programs of study.
Students may request to change their program of study with the Admissions, Registration and Records office and/ormayneedtoseea Program Advisor for select programs and approvals. All students are advised to meet with a Program Advisor or General Studies Advisor to discuss program requirements before changing their program of study. All Center for Health Sciences programs and most Career and Technical Education (CTE) programs require department approval in order for Admissions, Registration and Records to change a students program of study.
Students should consult with Financial Aid and Veterans Affairs before changing their program of study as it may impact their eligibility.
REGISTRATION
Students are encouraged to meet with their assigned General Studies or Program Advisor to ensure appropriate course placement and degree progress before registering for classes through CCDConnect. Registration instructions and deadlines are published each semester in various college publications. It is the students responsibility to keep informed of all deadlines and policies.
PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENTS
If a course has a prerequisite, students must have certain knowledge to be successful in the course. The prior knowledge may be demonstrated through an exam or a successful completion of a prior course (ex. must have completed CCR 092 with a grade of C or better). Completion of the prerequisite is required prior to enrolling in the course, and U/D, U/F, D, F, W, or I grades are not acceptable. It is the student's obligation to know and meet course prerequisites as stated in the course description section of the CCD Catalog. Prerequisites will be checked at registration and the student may be dropped if prerequisites are not met.
If the prerequisite requirements are for college composition and reading, math, or English-as-a-Second-Language courses, the Testing Center must enterthe basic skills test exemption on the students record to allow registration. This is required in order for the college to be in compliance with the Colorado Commission on Higher Education Statewide Remedial Education Policy, Section I, Part E.
If the prerequisite requirement is not for college composition and reading or math, students may request that the Testing Center also review previous transcripts from a regionally accredited college or university to approve and enter a prerequisite waiver. All requests for prerequisite waivers must be submitted to the Testing Center. Refer to the college online schedule or program requirements for specific requirements. Most CCD courses require minimum basic skill assessment scores.
BIOLOGY PREREQUISITE REQUIREMENT
Students intending to enroll in BIO 201 or BIO 204 are required to complete BIO 111 with a grade of C or better or pass the Science Placement Test. Transfer students who have taken an equivalent college biology class should submit previous transcripts from a regionally accredited college or university to the Testing Center for approval of the prerequisite requirement. When submitting to the Testing Center, students must indicate that they would like a biology prerequisite override so the Program Advisor can be notified. Although the college can transfer in a BIO 111 course that is up to 10 years old for prerequisite waivers, some Center for Health Sciences programs require that BIO 111 must be completed no more than seven years prior to enrollment in BIO 201 or 204.
AUDITING CLASSES
By auditing a class, a student may participate in class activities but does not receive a formal transcript grade. Students must indicate intent to audit a class at registration or by the census deadline listed on the student schedule. Students must pay for the class in full before an audit request will be processed. Once the audit has been approved, the class cannot be changed to a credited class.
Audited classes are not eligible for the College Opportunity Fund stipend. Students will be responsible for the full in-state or out-of-state tuition. Audited classes do not meet the credit hour requirements for financial aid or veteran benefits and may not be applied to certificate or degree requirements. Class credits for which an AU (Audit) grade is earned will not count in attempted hours and earned hours. No quality points will be assigned and there will be no impact on either the term or cumulative GPA.
MAXIMUM COURSE LOAD
Eighteen (18) credit hours is the maximum course load for all students. Students cannot register for more than 18 credits in any given semester without special permission from the Director of Academic Advising, Director of Program Advising, Dean of Student Development and Retention, or Center Dean.
ADD/DROP CLASSES
It is the students responsibility to add or drop classes by the published deadline.
Students can add classes to their class schedules up to the last day to register according to published deadlines.
Students may drop classes for a full refund by the published census date for each class.
00


Dates are published each semester in the Admissions & Registration Guide. Census dates vary so it is important to know if the course is atraditionai 15-week course (Fall and Spring term) or atraditional 10-week course (Summer term); all other census dates are specified in the student schedule. Census dates can also be verified with a General Studies Advisor, Program Advisor, or with the Admissions, Registration and Records office.
Students may be dropped for failure to pay their outstanding balance. Students who do not attend by census date may be dropped for non-attendance, which may include any required corequisite course regardless of attendance in that course. Any student dropped after the last day to register will not be permitted back into the course.
Classes dropped before the census date will not appear on an official transcript. After the census date, students have the option to withdraw without a refund, up to the published last date to withdraw.
Financial aid recipients should check with the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping or withdrawing from any classes as this could affect their financial aid award and students may have to repay awards. Veterans should consult the VA Certifying Official prior to dropping a class as it may impact their educational benefits.
WAITLIST
Students may place their name on a waitlist when a course is at maximum capacity and closed for registration. CCD honors the order of the waitlist and extends enrollment availability to students via a notification email sent to their student email account in the order in which they appear on the list. It is the students responsibility to register for the class via CCDConnect prior to the deadline indicated in the notification email. No exceptions will be allowed for students who miss notification. Students may have less than 24 hours to register if the deadline allowed overlaps the last day to register. Payment must be made in accordance with the payment policy. Faculty must honor the waitlist if there are openings in their class and cannot sign any students into a closed course.
WITHDRAWALS
Withdrawing from classes after census date will result in a grade of W. Withdrawal dates vary so it is important to know if a course is a traditional 15-week course (Fall and Spring term) or a traditional 10-week course (Summer term); all withdrawal dates are specified in the course schedule. Withdrawal dates can also be verified with a General Studies Advisor, Program Advisor, or with the Admissions, Registration and Records office. No academic credit is awarded for a withdrawal. A withdrawn course will count in attempted credits.
Financial aid recipients should check with the Financial Aid Office prior to dropping or withdrawing from any classes as this could affect their financial aid award and students may have to repay awards. Veterans should consult with the VA Certifying Official prior to withdrawing from a course as it may impact their educational benefits.
INTER-INSTITUTIONAL REGISTRATION
Under the inter-institutional registration program, CCD and its partners on the Auraria Campus (MSU Denver and CU Denver) allow students to take select college-level courses at a host institution if space is available. CCD students have the advantage of paying lower tuition rate for courses offered by the host institution while MSU Denver and CU Denver students have access to a diverse selection of electives and courses that may not be available at their home institution.
Online, off-campus, or extended campus courses are not covered under this agreement. For detailed instructions on how to register for inter-institutional courses, please refer to www.ccd.edu.
CCD Students CCD certificate or degree seeking students who want to take classes at MSU Denver or CU Denver must submit both the Inter-Institutional Application and Inter-Institutional Registration forms, which can be obtained at CCD's Admissions, Registration and Records Office.

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCE APPEAL PROCESS
The Extenuating Circumstance Appeals Committee may approve a late withdrawal and/or tuition credit for emergencies that exist beyond the students control preventing compliance with the established dates and deadlines for that term.
To receive an Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packet, students must first meet with their General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor.
Students must submit a completed Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packet and supporting documentation within one calendar year from the end of the semester for which the student is appealing.
The Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packet must include all required application forms and all supporting documentation. Completed Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packets will be reviewed and the student will be notified by CCD email or the phone number on file of the committees decision within 30 calendar days. Written notification will also be mailed to the students address on file.
The appeal packet must include all required signatures to be considered.
The Extenuating Circumstance Appeal will be denied if the student failed to comply with the deadline if the extenuating circumstance
allowed for submission in a timely manner.
If an appeal is denied, a student may request to have the appeal reconsidered by the committee, only if the student can supply additional documentation to support the extenuating circumstance. When a second review is requested, the decision made by the committee is final.
Students who have received financial aid and are granted an Extenuating Circumstance Appeal may not receive refunds. Credit balances will be used to repay federal aid first. Contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
FINANCIAL AID
CCD uses the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to determine a students eligibility for all forms of student financial aid, including grants, scholarships, work study, and loans. Some student financial aid awards are based on limited funding and are awarded on a first-come, first-served basis. For this reason, CCD encourages students to apply early each year (by April 15).

a. All required documentation must be submitted by April 15 in order for the student to be considered for priority awarding of first-come, first-served funding, including some grants, scholarships and work-study funds.
5. When the students file is completed in the Financial Aid Office, the student will receive an Award Notice. This information will also be available online through CCDConnect.
TYPES OF AID
The FAFSA not only determines a student's eligibility for financial aid
but also determines the types of aid available to the student. Financial
aid may be need-based or non-need-based, depending on the Estimated
Family Contribution (EFC) as determined by the U.S. Department of
Education.
Grants All grants at CCD are need-based and do not need to be repaid. Award amounts and eligibility depend on EFC and enrollment status. Students do not need to attend full time to receive grant funds, if eligible.
Direct Student Loans Direct Loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Education and do not require a credit check. Students must be enrolled at least half time to receive Direct Loans. Most Direct Loans must be repaid six months after the student is no longer enrolled at least half time (six or more credits) in an eligible program.
Federal annual limits apply to loans, depending on the students grade level and dependency status. To accept Direct Loans, students must accept the amount needed online via CCDConnect and complete an Entrance Counseling session and a Master Promissory Note (MPN) atwww.studentloans.gov. Students must also complete Exit Counseling when no longer enrolled at least half time.
Students who borrowed their first Direct Loans between July 2012 and July 2014, however, must begin repayment after dropping below half time enrollment and do not qualify for the six month grace period. For additional repayment information, students can call
1-800-848-0979 or visit www.studentaid.gov.
Federal Direct Subsidized Loan need-based. Interest (4.66%) is paid by the federal government on behalf of the student while the student is enrolled at least half time. Repayment begins six months after the student is no longer enrolled at least half time.
Federal Direct Unsubsidized Loan not need-based. Interest (4.66%) accrues and capitalizes while the student is enrolled. While the student is not required to make payments on any Direct Loans while enrolled at least half-time, the student is strongly encouraged to make interest payments while in school.
Federal Direct PLUS Loans (Parents) Parents may borrow directly from the federal government on behalf of the student. Repayment typically begins within 60 days after disbursement. The parent has up to 10 years to repay the loan. Credit checks are required and not all loans are guaranteed. If a parent is denied a PLUS loan due to credit, the student may borrow additional unsubsidized Direct Loans.
Work-Study Regardless of financial need as determined by the FAFSA, both Federal and Colorado Work- Study may be available on a first-
come, first-served basis. Students earn work-study through part time employment on or off campus and must be enrolled at least half time to qualify. Students can gain employment experience in an area directly related to their field of study while being paid bi-weekly. Eligible students are notified of their maximum work-study eligibility through the Financial Aid Award Notice or CCDConnect. Scholarships A form of gift aid that does not need to be repaid. Scholarship criteria may include academic achievement, need, talent, special qualities or a combination of these factors. Institutional and private scholarships are posted on www.ccd.edu. Students apply annually starting in January for the upcoming academic year. Priority is given to students who apply on or before April 15.
COST OF ATTENDANCE
A students COA includes actual educational expenses (tuition, fees, books and supplies) and estimated living expenses (room and board, transportation, medical and personal expenses based on Colorado Department of Higher Education guidelines). A students financial aid cannot exceed the COA and there is no guarantee that a student's financial aid will cover all costs.
Sample Budget (actual amounts are subject to change)
Resident Per Year Per Month
Living with parents $15,031 $1,670
Living away from parents $19,927 $2,214
Non-Resident Per Year Per Month
Living with parents $24,464 $2,718
Living away from parents $29,360 $3,262
Students may request budget increases for certain expenses such as child care, a one-time computer purchase, or for medical expenses by contacting the Financial Aid Office. Such requests, if granted, do not guarantee tire availability of additional funds.
SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP)
Federal regulations require all financial aid recipients to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) in order to receive financial aid. In order to maintain SAP standards at CCD, students must earn a minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA and complete at least 67 percent of their coursework. SAP standards also require students to complete their degree/program within 150 percent of the published length of the program. All credit hours taken at CCD, including all credits attempted when not receiving financial aid and all transfer hours, are included in determining a students SAP status. Students may become Ineligible for Aid if they do not complete any courses within a single term. If determined Ineligible for Aid, students may appeal to have aid reinstated at the Financial Aid Office.
FINANCIAL AID REPAYMENT
Students are only eligible for aid for courses in which they establish attendance. If a student does not establish attendance in a course and/or fails to drop a course before the published census date, the student may be charged tuition and fees. The student may also be required to repay any aid released. Corequisite courses may also be dropped if non-attendance is reported for either course.
Students who do not complete at least one credit hour for each part of term may be required to repay a portion of any financial aid received to CCD and/or the U.S. Department of Education. If CCD reports an amount owed to the U.S. Department of Education, the student will not be eligible to receive aid at any institution until the funds are repaid in full. The complete Return to Title IV policy is available online at www.ccd.edu.

CCD has policies and standards to help students know what to expect of CCD and what CCD expects of students. The following is a summary of the information students need to know. A General Studies Advisor, Program Advisor or anyone on the Student Affairs staff can help students understand these policies, standards and rights as a CCD student.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS GUIDELINE
All CCD students are expected to maintain satisfactory academic progress. Recognizing the value of measuring academic progress for all students, CCD has established the following practice and procedure for measuring academic standing. This procedure is intended to be informational and helpful, but also establishes clear standards of academic progress that must be met and maintained in order to be a successful student at CCD. A students academic standing at one Colorado Community College System (CCCS) college will impact academic standing at other CCCS colleges.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS PROCESS
For students who have attempted fewer than 9 credit hours, CCD will monitor satisfactory progress through an Academic Alert process. These students are not subject to Academic Standing.
Academic Standing applies to all students who have attempted 9 or more credits at a CCCS college, regardless of the number of term credits they attempt from that point forward. Academic Standing is applied consistently and uniformly within each CCCS institution. CCD will determine Academic Standing following the posting of the majority of term grades for each semester. Students placed on probation or suspension will be notified of their status. Suspended students will not be allowed to attend any CCCS college in the subsequent semester/s unless an appeal is approved. Academic Standing status will be noted on the advising, official, and unofficial transcripts. The Academic Standing of a student is not specific or limited to CCD as it will impact a students enrollment at other CCCS colleges.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS DEFINITIONS
Only college level classes will be used to calculate term and cumulative GPAs.
This includes summer term courses.
Only courses taken in residence will be used for this procedure; In residence means courses taken at CCD. Courses taken elsewhere and transferred in do not apply. The GPA calculations for this procedure may not match those used for financial aid purposes.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARDS
Initial Standing Student has attempted fewer than 9 cumulative credit hours with a cumulative GPA that is greater than or equal to 2.00 for all classes attempted.
Academic Alert Student has attempted fewer than a cumulative 9 credits with a cumulative GPA less than 2.00 for all classes attempted.
Good Standing Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative GPA greater than or equal to 2.00 for all classes attempted.
Probation Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative GPA less than 2.00 for all classes attempted.
Returning to Good Standing By the conclusion of the Academic
Probation term, the student must raise their cumulative GPA to at least 2.0. If this condition is met, the student returns to Good Standing.
Probation (continuing) If a student on Academic Probation earns a term GPA of at least 2.00 for all classes attempted during the term, but fails to raise their cumulative GPA to at least 2.0 for all classes attempted, the student will be allowed to attend the next term, but will remain on Academic Probation.
Suspension If a student on Academic Probation earns a term GPA of less than 2.0 for all classes attempted, the student will be suspended and will not be allowed to enroll at any CCCS college for the next term, excluding summer term (as summer term may not be used as a suspension term).
ACADEMIC PROGRESS SUSPENSION RULES
Summer term may not be used as a suspension term.
Summer term may be used to remediate (improve) the GPA if approved by CCD. If a student wishes to enroll for summer term after being suspended, they will need to follow CCDs Suspension Reinstatement Procedure.
Initial suspension is for one term, excluding summer term.
A second suspension is for two terms, excluding summer term.
A third suspension is for two full years, or 4 academic terms excluding summers.
A student who has served the suspension time for initial suspension, second suspension, or third suspension, will be required to submit an Academic Suspension Appeals Packet and meet with their CCD General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to review and sign the packet.
If approved by the Academic Appeals Committee, the student will be reinstated for two classes and be required to complete an accountability contract during their semester of reinstatement.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS SUSPENSION APPEALS
Students may appeal their suspension by following the CCD Suspension Reinstatement Procedure. If a student intends to transfer to another CCCS college, the student may appeal to the transferring CCCS college.
If the student's suspension appeal is approved, the student will be reinstated for the semester approved.
Students put on Suspension will be dropped from all courses for any future terms. Students will not be able to register for courses until they meet the requirements outlined in the Suspension Reinstatement Procedure. Students are ultimately responsible for their enrollment and need to check their enrollment schedule for accuracy.

ACADEMIC INFORMATION
Academic Progress Suspension Reinstatement Procedures
The Academic Suspension Reinstatement procedures require that a student meet with a General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to review the Academic Suspension Reinstatement Packet prior to submitting it to the Academic Appeals Committee for review. The completed and reviewed packet should be turned into the Academic Advising Center, Confluence 123.
The Academic Suspension Packet can be found at www.ccd.edu/ studentforms under Academic Advising Center. Students should be prepared for the session with their General Studies Advisor/Program Advisor by reading and completing the forms in the packet. The following should be presented to the Advisor for review and signature:
An unofficial transcript/copy of academic record.
A printed Degree Works audit.
A typed Letter of Appeal.
Any supporting documentation outlining the circumstances that led to suspension.
After the Appeals committee reviews all appeals, an Academic Suspension Committee member will notify a student of their reinstatement status via their CCCS email account and by phone. If the student is approved for reinstatement, the student must follow the planned and approved courses outlined in the Academic Reinstatement Plan and sign a reinstatement contract with the AAC Suspension Advisor. In order to continue enrollment at CCD, students must meet all requirements outlined in their Reinstatement Contract.
CREDIT COMPLETION PROGRESS
Recognizing the value of credit completion for all students with regards to retention, transfer and credential attainment; CCD has established the following practices and procedures for measuring credit completion progress. Students must meet the standards of credit completion progress in order to be successful students at CCD.
CREDIT COMPLETION PROCESS
For students who have attempted fewer than 9 credit hours, CCD will monitor credit completion through an Alert process. These students are not subject to the Credit Completion Progress guideline.
Credit Completion Progress standards apply to all students who have attempted 9 or more credits at CCD, regardless of the number of term credits they attempt from that point forward. Credit Completion Progress standards will be applied consistently and uniformly within each CCCS college. CCD will determine Credit Completion Progress standards following the posting of the majority of term grades for each semester. Students placed on warning 1, warning 2 or warning 3 will be notified of their status. Credit Completion Progress status will be noted on the advising and unofficial transcripts only (it will not be noted on the official transcript). The Credit Completion Progress status of a student is specific to CCD and does not impact a students enrollment at other CCCS colleges.
CREDIT COMPLETION DEFINITIONS
Credit Completion Progress includes all credit bearing classes (developmental and college level), which will be used to calculate the percent of attempted credits passed. This includes summer term courses.
Only courses taken in residence" will be used for this calculation; In residence" means taken at CCD. Courses taken elsewhere and transferred in do not apply. The credit completion rate for this procedure will not necessarily match those used for financial aid purposes or athletic eligibility.
Grades considered to be passing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: A, B, C. D, S/A, S/B, S/C, and S.
Grades considered to be failing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: I, F, U/D, U/F, W, and AW.
Course Completion Rate is calculated by dividing the total attempted credits by the number of credits successfully completed as per the definitions above.
CREDIT COMPLETION STANDARDS
Initial Standing Student has attempted fewer than 9 cumulative credit hours will not be assessed for credit completion.
Good Standing Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate of at least 50%. Warning 1 Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate of less than 50% for the first time.
Warning 2 Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate of less than 50% for the second time.
Warning (continued) Ifa student on Credit Completion Probation passes 50% or more of their attempted term credits, but fails to raise their cumulative completion rate to 50%, they will be allowed to continue the next term, but will remain on Credit Completion Probation.
Warning 3 Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate of less than 50% for the third time.
CREDIT COMPLETION WARNING RULES
Students on Warning 1 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will be given information on student support services at CCD.
Students on Warning 2 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion registration hold placed on their CCD student account. The student will not be able to make any changes to their student account until they meet with their General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to appeal.
Students on Warning 3 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion registration hold placed on their CCD student account. The student will not be able to make any changes to their student account until they meet with their General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to appeal. CCD reserves the right to limit the number of credit hours the student may enroll in when placed on Warning 3 status.
Reviews of appeals are completed by the Academic Appeals Committee.
Appeal forms can be found at www.ccd.edu/studentforms under the Academic Advising Center. Completed Credit Completion Warning appeal documents should be turned in to the Academic Advising Center, Confluence 123.
ACADEMIC RENEWAL POLICY
The purpose of academic renewal is to allow a student the one-time opportunity to remove a maximum of 30 semester credit hours of poor academic performance from the grade point average (GPA) calculation.
Academic renewal applies only to courses taken at CCD and may only be awarded once. The original grades and credits remain on the permanent academic transcript and credit hours are deducted from the students remaining COF stipend eligible hours. A notation indicating Academic Renewal Awarded will be made on the official transcript and the grades will be excluded from the GPA. After being granted, Academic Renewal is irreversible. Credit excluded from the GPA calculation cannot be used to satisfy the requirements for completion of a certificate or degree.
The following conditions must be met to apply for Academic Renewal:
Up to 30 hours can be excluded from GPA, but those grades will remain on the students transcript.
The student cannot have been enrolled at CCD for two calendar years to be eligible for Academic Renewal.
The student must be enrolled and have completed at least six semester credit hours with a minimum 2.0 GPA since returning to CCD. For Reverse Transfer Degree only, the student may fulfill this requirement by demonstrating enrollment in at least 6 credit hours with a 2.0 term GPA during the last semester of attendance at the four year institution.
The Academic Renewal Form must include a General Studies Advisors or Program Advisor's signature.
Only grades of D and F are eligible for academic renewal and exclusion from GPA calculation.
02


A student concerned about a poor academic record is encouraged to meet with a General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor 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 are not bound by CCDs policy and may choose to calculate the student's 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
Students at Community College of Denver 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 critical thinking needed to function in society. To falsify or fabricate the results of ones research; to present the words, ideas, data, or work of another as ones own; or to cheat on an examination corrupts the essential process of higher education and is a disservice to the student, faculty and staff community. All members of Community College of Denver community share the responsibility and authority to challenge and report acts of academic dishonesty.
GUIDELINES FOR ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

ACADEMIC STANDARDS
CCD CURRICULUM STANDARDS
Community College of Denver follows the Colorado state mandated common course descriptions, competencies and outlines for any course offered, regardless of the method of delivery. For online, hybrid, and accelerated courses, CCD uses existing academic structures in the development of courses and curricula.
ATTENDANCE
Attendance in all class sessions is critical for academic success. 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 day of class. Faculty may report any student who does not attend the first 15 percent (census date) of the course and the student will be dropped and not be allowed to re-register for the course. Any corequisite required for a course that is dropped for non-attendance may also be dropped. Students 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. However, accommodations may not be made for missed course assignments, participation, quizzes, tests or class sessions. Students are responsible for learning the material that was taught during the absence and completing all class assignments.
The attendance policy for health sciences and other programs may differ because of clinical requirements or rules set by approving agencies.
COMMON GRADING SYMBOLS
CCD GRADE POLICY
Achievement in a course is measured by meeting specific course objectives. CCD students are evaluated using a letter-grade system. The following explains what each grade means. For more information, visit www.ccd.edu, consult the course syllabus or ask the instructor to explain their grading system.

I - INCOMPLETE
The I or incomplete grade is a temporary grade. It is designed for students who 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 better), but are unable to complete within the semester due to documented illness or circumstances beyond their control.
If circumstances prevent the student from completing a test or assignments by the end of the term, then it is the students responsibility
CD
02


to initiate the request for an incomplete grade from the instructor. The instructor will determine whether the student has a reasonable chance of satisfactorily completing the remaining course activities in a timely manner. In the event that a student and instructor cannot reach resolution concerning an Incomplete, then the student should contact the Department Chair.
In requesting an incomplete grade, the student must present the instructor with documentation of circumstances justifying an incomplete grade. The instructor and student will sign an Incomplete Grade form and submit it to the Center Dean for approval. While waiting for the work to be completed, the instructor will assign an incomplete grade on the grade roster.
Military personnel and emergency management officials who are required to go on Temporary Duty (TDY) during a term should contact then instructor for special consideration. Documentation of official TDY assignment is required and must be approved by the Provost.
An incomplete grade which is not converted to a letter grade by the instructor after one subsequent semester (not including summer semester) will become an F grade unless a higher default grade has been assigned by the instructor.
To avoid duplicate payment of a course, students should not re-enroll in a class in which an incomplete grade is pending, since according to the colleges definition of enrollment, they are still enrolled.
S SATISFACTORY
The satisfactory grade is equivalent to a grade of C or better. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation or in quality points. The course will count for attempted and earned credits.
U UNSATISFACTORY
The unsatisfactory grade is equivalent to a D or F grade. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count in attempted credits, but will not carry earned credits.
S/A, S/B, S/C SATISFACTORY
These are satisfactory grades awarded only for developmental and remedial courses. The A. B, and C indicate the level of satisfactory performance. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count for attempted and earned credits.
U/D, U/F UNSATISFACTORY
These are unsatisfactory grades awarded only for developmental and remedial courses. The D and F indicate the level of unsatisfactory performance. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count in attempted credits, but will not carry earned credits.
W WITHDRAWAL
The W or withdrawal grade is assigned when a student officially withdraws from a course after the course census date. A withdrawal can only be processed during the first 80 percent of the course. No academic credit is awarded. The course will count in attempted hours.
AW ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL
The AW or administrative withdrawal is assigned by the college when a student has been administratively withdrawn. No academic credit is awarded. The course will count in attempted hours. CCD only grants AW grades for extenuating circumstances that are documented, appealed and approved by the Extenuating Circumstance Appeal Committee.
LAST DATE OF ATTENDANCE
Faculty are required to provide the last date of attendance for each student who is awarded an F, I, U, or U/F.
REPEAT FIELD INDICATORS -1 OR E
Assigned for repeated courses on the students transcript, an I will indicate include in earned hours and GPA calculation or E will indicate exclude from earned hours and GPA calculation.
CREDIT HOURS
CCD follows the Colorado Commission on Higher Education recommendation that for every hour of credit, students must engage in a minimum of 12.5 hours of instructional time (15 week semester = 50 minutes per week per credit). Therefore, all courses including online, hybrid, and accelerated are designed and facilitated so that students have the opportunity to devote enough time to meet course objectives.
As a general rule, for every hour spent in class, students should also plan to dedicate at least two hours (three hours for math/science courses) outside of class to study and complete assignments. When deciding on a course load, students should keep these time requirements in mind.
GRADE APPEALS
Appeals regarding final grades should be initiated by the student within 60 calendar days after the date grades are posted for the semester in which the grade was awarded. Before making an appeal, the student should first discuss the grade with the instructor, and then if necessary, with the Department Chair. If there is no resolution, the student can appeal the grade by submitting a written statement to the Center Dean explaining the problem. The Center Dean will investigate and respond in writing within 15 days. The Dean's decision is the final step of the grade appeal process.
GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)
Grade points measure a students achievement for the credit hours completed. To calculate the GPA, multiply the number of grade points by
the number of credit hours received for each course. Total the number of credits and the number of grade points separately. Divide the total grade points by the total 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, S/A, S/B, S/C, SP, /. W, AU, AW, NC, U/D, U/F) are not calculated into the CCD GPA.
The following is an example of how to calculate grade point average:
Course Credits Grade Points
ANT 111 Physical Anthropology 3 A 12=(3 x 4)
BIO 111 General College Biology 5 A 20=(5 x 4)
CIS 118 Introduction to PC Applications 3 B 9=(3x3)
ENG 121 English Comp I 3 D 3=(3xl)
POS 111 American Government 3 F 0=(3 x 0)
Totals 17 44
Total grade points divided by total credits equals the cumulative grade point average. Therefore, the grade point average for the above example is 44 divided by 17 for a 2.59 GPA.
Students may use Degree Works for GPA calculation assistance.
REPEATING COURSES
All CCD college-level courses may be repeated twice at CCD. For most courses, once a student attempts to register for the same course a third time, they will be directed to an advisor and must be approved for registration. If a student is denied registration, the student has the right to appeal through the Repeat Appeals committee. A fourth repeat attempt will require an appeal, which must be approved by the Repeat Appeals committee.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER 2015-2016 CATALOG
ACADEMIC INFORMATION
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. The highest grade will be used in the GPA calculation. All credit hours earned for initial and repeated courses will be deducted from a students remaining COF stipend eligible hours. Repeating a course may impact a students financial aid eligibility. If the same grade is earned two or more times for a repeated course, the most recent instance of the duplicate grade will be included in the term and cumulative GPA. All other duplicate grades will be excluded from the term and cumulative GPA. The Repeat Policy does not apply to courses transferred to CCD.
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. CCD will designate courses that may be repeated within program requirements.
If both the initial and the repeated course were taken in Fall 2006 or after, the system should automatically remove the lower grade from the GPA. If either the initial or the repeated course (or both) were taken prior to Fall 2006, then the student must complete a Petition for Repeat Courses form and submit it to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office. If students do not see the repeated designation, they may submit a Petition for Repeat Courses form to Admissions, Registration and Records.
For Developmental Courses only:
The grading system for developmental courses changed beginning Fall 2006 and developmental grades are no longer included in the cumulative GPA calculation. However, if either the initial course or the repeated course (or both) were taken prior to Fall 2006, then the student must complete and submit a Petition for Repeat Courses form to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office in order for the developmental coursework to be reviewed.
Appeal forms can be found at www.ccd.edu/studentforms under the Academic Advising Center. Completed appeal documents should be turned into the Academic Advising Center, Confluence 123 to the attention of the Repeat Appeals Committee.
CCD CELEBRATES STUDENT SUCCESS
GRADUATION HONORS
Graduation honors recognize outstanding academic achievement throughout a students academic career. The honors are awarded to students who complete the requirements for an associate degree, completing at least 30 credit hours with a 3.5 or better cumulative GPA at CCD. Only college-level courses completed with CCD will be included in the GPA calculation.
The three levels of recognition are defined as follows and will be posted on the students transcript:
Cum Laude (with honor) 3.50 to 3.749 cumulative GPA
Magna Cum Laude (with great honor) 3.75-3.99 cumulative GPA
Summa Cum Laude ("with highest honor) 4.0 cumulative GPA
HONORS PROGRAM
The CCD Honors Program was established in 1990 to recognize outstanding talent among CCD students and to provide a supportive, stimulating support community for them throughout their time at CCD.
Students in CCDs Honors Program go a step beyond the routine, turning ordinary courses into extraordinary learning experiences. Student transcripts will reflect the individual Honors courses and the overall completion of the Honors Program, providing recognition that will serve students as they transfer to other institutions, seek scholarships, and pursue career goals.
All CCD students are welcome in the program. To participate, students contract with individual instructors to do work above and beyond the ordinary class requirements. Once they have completed this supplemental work, the class will be transcripted as an Honors course. There is no fee to join the Honors Program.
Students who complete the Honors Program (15 credits worth of Honors Courses with 3.5 or better cumulative GPA) will have their degrees and/or certificates awarded with Honors. Honors Program
graduates receive special recognition at CCDs annual commencement ceremony. Also CCDs Honors Program can be transferred to Metropolitan State Universitys Honors Program.

Awards will be posted at the end of the semester.
TRANSFERRING CREDIT TO CCD
CCD adheres to the following guidelines and policies for the evaluation of transfer credit:
CCD will only accept transfer credit from post-secondary institutions accredited by one of the six regional accrediting associations. Credits earned at nationally accredited or unaccredited institutions are not transferable to CCD.
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 atwww.cccs.edu.
CCD will perform a transfer credit evaluation only after the student has been admitted to CCD, declared a program of study, and submitted official transcripts from their prior school(s). Students are responsible for requesting official transcripts from their prior school(s).
Official transcripts from prior schools should be sent directly to the Admissions, Registration and Records Office, Campus Box 201, P.O. Box 173363, Denver, CO 80217-3363. For transcripts to be considered official, they must be sent directly from the other college or delivered in the original sealed envelope and marked "official.
All received and/or evaluated transcripts become the property of CCD. Students must obtain their own copy of transcripts for testing and/or advising purposes.
Transcripts are evaluated on a course-by-course basis. To be considered for transfer, courses must be offered at CCD or determined as equivalent to CCD courses. College-level classes that are not equivalent to CCD courses may transfer in as electives. Students must meet with a Program Advisor to determine if, and how, the accepted transfer credit will apply to their intended program.
Only those courses that apply to the selected degree or certificate program will be transferred into CCD. Additional courses may be transferred in if they satisfy course prerequisites or if they are similar to required courses.
Courses must have a grade of C or better to be considered for transfer.
Courses with a pass or satisfactory grade will only transfer if the official transcript or college catalog documents that a pass or satisfactory grade is equivalent to a grade of C or better.
Credit for remedial, developmental, preparatory, or non-college-level coursework is not transferable to CCD.
Graduate and/or doctoral level course work will not automatically transfer into CCD. These credits must receive approval from the instructional Center Dean or Department Chair.
Coursework older than 10 years will not automatically transfer into CCD. These will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis to ensure that the course is not obsolete and that the course content is equivalent to current offerings. Students are required to provide syllabi or course descriptions for applicable courses completed more than 10 years ago. Some individual programs have set time limits on certain prerequisite courses and transfer credits. For additional details, refer to the section Time Limits on Transfer Credits on page 36.
All credit is evaluated on the semester-hour basis. Credits from institutions which operate on a quarter system calendar are transferred by multiplying the quarter hours earned by two-thirds.
Transfer credit evaluations will only be assessed in person. The college will not provide any official evaluation via phone, e-mail, or fax.
TRANSFER OF INTERNATIONAL CREDITS
Students who have attended international institutions and want their transfer credits evaluated must first have the international transcripts translated and evaluated by a recognized member of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) and have an official copy of their course-by-course credit evaluation report sent directly to CCD. Any translations or evaluations completed by companies that are not a member of NACES will not be accepted by CCD for transfer credit review purposes.
A complete list of approved NACES members can be found at: www. naces.org/members.htm.
CCD will perform a transfer credit evaluation only after the student has been admitted to CCD, declared a program of study, and submitted an official copy of their NACES course-by-course credit evaluation report.
Students may also be required to provide English-translated course descriptions for courses that they wish to have transferred.
Time Limits on Transfer Credits
Health Sciences Science prerequisites for the Dental Hygiene and Veterinary Technology programs must be no older than seven years.
Business Technology It is recommended that courses applied to Business Technology degrees and certificates be no more than five years old.
Early Childhood Education It is recommended that courses applied to Early Childhood Education programs be no more than seven years old.
Computer Information Systems/lnformation Technology To ensure student success, it is strongly recommended that courses applied to the Computer Information Systems or the Information Technology programs comply with the following time limits:
Application courses five year's
Programming courses five years
Networking/hardware courses five years
Certification courses three years
General education courses -10 years
Business courses -10 years
o
CO


Note: If the transferring student has current industry experience, the time limit recommendations for applicable courses may be waived. See the appropriate Department Chair.
TRANSFER OF CREDITS FROM AREA VOCATIONAL TECHNICAL SCHOOLS TO CCD
Students who complete the technical coursework contained in a state-approved career and technical education certificate program at one of the four Area Vocational Technical Schools (AVTS) can take additional academic credit hours at CCD and earn an AAS degree in Applied Technology. The four AVTS are: Emily Griffith Technical College, Pickens Tech Center, Delta-Montrose Area Vocational Technical Center, and San Juan Basin Technical College. Credits for a certificate completed at the AVTS are transferable for an AAS in Applied Technology. In addition, some individual courses may be approved for transfer on a course-by-course basis and applied to selected degrees. Refer questions about the transfer of individual courses to the appropriate Program Advisor.
CREDIT FOR PRIOR LEARNING
Students may earn credit for college-equivalent education acquired through prior schooling, work or other life experiences. Such prior learning must be comparable to CCD courses or curricula and must relate to the students educational objectives. Credit for prior learning may be earned through standardized tests, challenge exams, published guides or portfolio assessment.
Standardized Tests
Advanced Placement Program (AP) Students can receive credit through AP examinations completed while in high school.
International Baccalaureate (IB) CCD recognizes the International Baccalaureate program and accords special consideration for students presenting IB credentials on an individual basis.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) The College Level Examination Program (CLEP) is a series of examinations in 34 introductory college subjects. CCD recognizes selected CLEP general examinations and subject examinations. CLEP examinations may be taken at the CCD Testing Center.
DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST) Most DSSTs are recognized by CCD as acceptable tests for college credit. DSSTs may be taken at the CCD Testing Center.
To receive college credit, students who take any standardized test must request that their scores be sent to CCD. A complete list of acceptable AP. IB, CLEP and DSST exams, along with cut-off scores and CCD course equivalencies, can be found online at www.cccs.edu.
Challenge Examinations: Currently enrolled students may challenge most courses by taking a comprehensive examination. Only one exam for a particular course may be arranged. The cost for a Challenge Exam is $60 per credit hour.
Published Guides
ACE-Military CCD uses the credit recommendation of the American Council on Education (ACE), as published in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services, to evaluate military training and learning experiences.
ACE-Non-Collegiate CCD uses the credit recommendations from the ACE program on Non-Collegiate Sponsored Instruction, as published in the National Guide to Educational Credit for Training Programs, to evaluate industrial and corporate training programs.
Portfolio of Learning Outcomes: Currently enrolled students may petition for credit by developing a portfolio that describes and documents pertinent learning experiences comparable to those available in CCD courses. A faculty member in the appropriate program area evaluates the portfolio and determines what, if any, credit will be given. Only one portfolio evaluation for a particular course will be arranged during any one semester. The cost for a portfolio evaluation is $60 per credit hour.
A student may use Credit for Prior Learning to fulfill all degree/cer-tificate graduation requirements except for the mandatory 25 percent residency requirement. For more details on Credit for Prior Learning options, students should contact the Program Advisor in the appropriate
certificate or degree area.
Note: Credit evaluated for general acceptance may or may not be applicable to specific degree or certificate programs.
TRANSFER OPTIONS
TRANSFERRING TO FOUR-YEAR INSTITUTIONS
CCDs Associate of Arts (AA) and Associate of Science (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. In some circumstances, an Associate of Applied Science (AAS) or Associate of General Studies (AGS) degree may transfer.
If students intend to transfer, it is very important to become familiar with the requirements of the school they plan to attend as early as possible. For more information, consult the Transfer Success Center (TSC), a Program Advisor or the Academic Advising Center (AAC).
TSC has reference catalogs, transfer guides and application materials from Colorados four-year colleges and universities, as well as catalogs from several out-of-state, four-year colleges and universities. To get additional information visit TSC online or call 303-556-2461.
Visit the Colorado Community College System (CCCS) at https:// resources.cccs.edu/education-services/transfers-articulation/ for links to some of the four-year institutions that have articulation or transfer agreements with CCD. Additional information about statewide guaranteed transfer and articulation agreements is available at the Colorado Department of Higher Education website.
Representatives from four-year colleges and universities visit CCD regularly. Information about campus visits can be acquired in the TSC office or call 303-556-2461.
60 + 60 TRANSFER
For students who complete an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree, 60 credit hours of the AA or AS degree are guaranteed to transfer to a Colorado public four-year school, once the student has been accepted for admission. Students may be able to finish a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree within another 60 credit hours. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan. Note that some bachelors degrees require more than an additional 60 credits to complete. When in doubt, students are encouraged to speak to an Advisor.
See a General Studies Advisor in Academic Advising Center (AAC) or a Program Advisor in the appropriate Academic Center as soon as possible for a list of applicable degrees. If students have not selected a major or are unsure of which Program Advisor to see, they should visit the AAC and someone will assist them in locating the correct Program Advisor for their degree plan. General Studies Advisors in the AAC advise all undecided and exploring students. CCD has special articulation, or transfer, agreements. Please see Statewide Transfer Degree Programs on page 64 for additional information.
Certain majors require that students take essential lower-division prerequisites before transferring to a four-year institution. Students should contact their General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor for help in selecting lower division credit hours and for additional information regarding transfer to a four-year degree.
Credit for Prior Learning, such as CLEP and Advanced Placement, that is approved by CCD and applied towards an AA or AS degree is not guaranteed to transfer. The transferring institution will evaluate these credits according to its own policies. Transfer credits from other institutions and the age of credits may also change the guarantee of transfer under the 60 + 60 transfer plan.

VETERANS AFFAIRS
Veterans seeking Veterans Affairs (VA) educational benefits must apply through the VA website, www.gibill.va.gov. It is the veterans responsibility to assemble and submit all needed materials to the VA Regional Office and CCDs VA Certifying Official.
CCD's VA Certifying Official provides information about veterans benefits and certifies enrollment throughout the veterans attendance at the college. It is the veterans responsibility to notify CCDs VA Certifying Official of any registration updates.
Veterans who are eligible for educational benefits may apply for advanced payment with CCDs VA Certifying Official. The last day to apply for advanced payment is 30 days prior to the first day of classes. Although students may apply for advanced payment, the VA may not issue funds prior to the first day of class. Students must pay their tuition in full or set up a payment plan by the deadline posted in the Admissions and Registration Guide.
For more information about using VA educational benefits at CCD, visit CCDs VA Certifying Official in the Admissions, Registration and Records office, or visit www.ccd.edu.
Required Documentation
Students must provide all of the following documents to CCDs VA Certifying Official before CCD will begin the VA Certifying Process:
Copy of original application for benefits (22-1990 or 22-5490) or change of training place (22-1995 or 22-5495).
Copy of the Certificate of Eligibility (sent by the VA to eligible students six to eight months after the student has applied for benefits).
VA Worksheet (available from CCDs VA Certifying Official).
Notice of Student Responsibility Form (available from CCDs VA Certifying Official).
Course Selection
The VA does not generally pay for courses that are not required for the student's program of study. VA benefits cannot be used towards a repeated course that has been successfully completed, even if the student intends on repeating the course in order to raise their cumulative GPA. A course for which a grade of D was assigned may be repeated if a higher grade is required for the program of study. The VA will not pay for online developmental courses. Only developmental courses taken on campus are eligible for VA benefits.
CCDs VA Certifying Official will send certification of classes to the VA once the student has registered and submitted the required documentation. If students increase or decrease their credit hours after the initial certification has been submitted, it can result in significant delays to benefits and may also increase the likelihood of overpayment.
Attendance
Students who stop attending class but do not officially withdraw will earn an F grade for the
course. Veterans who fail to inform CCDs VA Certifying Official that they have stopped attending a course may receive an overpayment or debt notification from the VA.
Overpayment
An overpayment may occur if a student withdraws, drops or decreases the amount of credit hours for which they are registered without adding any additional credit hours after initial certification has been sent to the VA. It is the responsibility of the student to pay back the VA if an overpayment occurs. For questions concerning this, please ask CCDs VA Certifying Official.
Veterans Academic Standards of Progress
Students using VA educational benefits are responsible for following CCDs Academic Progress Policy, which explains student GPA requirements and academic probation processes.
Special Grades
AU The VA will not certify a grade of AU, which indicates that a course was audited or taken for no credit.
I - An incomplete or I grade must be made up no later than the next consecutive 15-week semester. If an I grade is not completed during the required period, the I will revert to F and the veteran's enrollment certification will be adjusted back to the beginning date of the term in which the I grade was received.
Mitigating Circumstances for Veterans
When mitigating circumstances prevail,
CCD will attempt to intervene on behalf of the veteran with the Veterans Administration. Mitigating circumstances (as defined by P.L. 94-502) that directly hinder an eligible veterans or dependents pursuit of a course and are judged to be out of the students control include but are not limited to:
serious illness of the eligible veteran or dependent.
serious illness or death in the eligible veteran's or other dependents immediate family.
immediate family or financial obligations that require a change in terms or place of employment and preclude the veteran or dependent from pursuing course work.
the college discontinues a course.
active military duty, including active duty for training.
withdrawal from a course or receipt of a non-punitive grade upon completion of a course because of 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. Students must submit evidence that they applied for tutorial aid, consulted CCDs VA Certifying Official or consulted a CCD Program Advisor in an attempt to remedy the unsatisfactory work before withdrawal or completion.

ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
ARMY RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS (AROTC)
The Military Science Array Reserve Officers Training Corps (AROTC) Program is offered on the Auraria Campus to all interested students at Community College of Denver.
The Department of Military Science offers programs leading to an officers commission in the active Army, Army Reserve or National Guard, in conjunction with an undergraduate or graduate degree. Military Science courses are designed to supplement a regular degree program by providing practical leadership and management experience. Enrollment in the Basic Course (freshman and sophomore years) incurs no military obligation except for Army scholarship recipients.
Students may participate in activities with the Buffalo Battalions Charlie Company located on the Auraria Campus, to include color guard, intramural sports, running club and ranger challenge. Weekly or Saturday leadership labs provide cadets with practical leadership experience and performance-oriented, hands-on instruction outside the classroom. Leadership labs are compulsory for enrolled cadets. Physical Training (PT) is conducted three times a week with the purpose of developing muscular strength, endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance.
Applications for second and third year scholarships are open to all community college students, but acceptance of an AROTC scholarship requires enrollment at a four-year, degreegranting university. For more information about scholarships, contact the Enrollment/Scholar-ship officer at 303-492-3549.
Since AROTC classes at Auraria Campus are taught at Metropolitan State University of Denver (MSU Denver), students must register using the inter-institutional process which incurs no additional costs. The AROTC classes at CCD use the ARM prefix (MSU Denver uses MILR). For assistance with the inter-institutional registration process, contact CCDs Admissions, Registration and Records Office at 303-556-2420.
More information about AROTC is available online at http://catalog.ccd.edu/army-reserve-officers-training-corps-arote.htm or by contacting the Department of Military Science office at 303-352-7419.

This includes cooperative education, academic internships, apprenticeships, and registered apprenticeships. For more information, students should contact their Program Advisor and review the Internship Handbook.
HONORS PROGRAM
The CCD Honors Program was established in 1990 to recognize outstanding talent among CCD students and to provide a supportive, stimulating support community for them throughout their time at CCD.
Students in CCDs Honors Program go a step
beyond the routine, turning ordinary courses into extraordinary learning experiences. Student transcripts will reflect the individual Honors courses and the overall completion of the Honors Program, providing recognition that will serve students as they transfer to other institutions, seek scholarships, and pursue career goals.
All CCD students are welcome in the program. To participate, students contract with individual instructors to do work above and beyond the ordinary class requirements. Once they have completed this supplemental work, the class will be transcripted as an Honors course. There is no fee to join the Honors Program.
Students who complete the Honors Program (15 credits worth of Honors Courses with 3.5 or better cumulative GPA) will have their degrees and/or certificates awarded with Honors. Honors Program graduates receive special recognition at CCDs annual commencement ceremony. Also CCDs Honors Program can be transferred to Metropolitan State Universitys Honors Program.

COMMUNITY COLLEGE OF DENVER 2015-2016 CATALOG
CCD RIGHTS Sr LEGAL NOTICES
Please note: In most circumstances, college will treat attempts to commit code of conduct violations as if those attempts had been completed.
Note: Violation of Law and Student Code of Conduct Proceedings initiated under these procedures are separate from civil or criminal proceedings that may relate to the same incident. Investigations or conduct proceedings by the College are not postponed while criminal or civil proceedings are pending unless otherwise determined by the Conduct Officer.
SECTION IV: CONDUCT PROCESSES
Note: Because email is an official method of communication for the College, students may be notified over email of potential violations of the Student Code of Conduct.
A. STANDARD OF PROOF
The College views the conduct process as a learning experience that can result in growth and personal understanding of ones responsibilities and privileges within the College community. It is not intended to be a substitute for civil or criminal legal proceedings, and is designed to provide a fair evaluation of whether or not a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct. Formal rules of evidence do not apply in the Colleges conduct process. The College uses a preponderance of evidence standard when determining responsibility for alleged violations of the Student Code of Conduct. A preponderance of evidence means that what is alleged to have happened is, more likely than not, what actually happened. This shall be the standard of proof used in all conduct proceedings under this Code.
B. INCIDENT PROCESS
1. Incident Submission: Faculty, staff, or students can file an incident report of alleged violation at www.ccd.edu/incidentreport.
2. Incident Review: The Conduct Officer reviews all reports and information received from college departments, staff faculty, officials, students, community members, or police to determine if there is sufficient information to indicate that the Student Code of Conduct has been violated. If the allegations of misconduct are discrimination and/or harassment based on federal or state civil rights laws, the college will investigate those incidents through the Civil Rights Grievance and Investigation Process, System Presidents Procedure (SP) 4-31a.
3. Written Notification: The Conduct Officer or designee will notify the student in writing (via student email) that information has been received which indicates a potential violation of specific standards in the Code of Conduct. The written notification will provide cursory details of the incident along with the charges. The letter will ask the student to schedule a meeting with the Conduct Officer.
4. Conduct Meeting: The student will have a chance to meet with the Conduct Officer to discuss the situation. The student will have the opportunity at that meeting to review the written documentation of the incident and present any information that is relevant to the incident. If the student chooses not to meet with the Conduct officer within the timeline stated in the Written Notification, a decision may be made in the student's absence. In addition, a hold may be placed on the students account which will prevent the student from registering until the process is completed.
5. Decision: Once the investigation is complete, either through this process or the Civil Rights Grievance and Investigation process, the CSSO or designee shall render a sanction decision. The CSSO or designee may decide that the charges can be disposed of administratively by mutual consent of the parties involved on a basis acceptable to them. If an administrative resolution is not achieved, the CSSO or designee shall issue a decision which determines whether the alleged conduct occurred; whether the conduct violated the Code of Conduct or College procedures; and impose a sanction (s) if appropriate.
6. Decision Letter: Each incident involving an alleged violation of the Code of Conduct will be concluded with a Letter outlining the Conduct Officers decision of responsible or "not responsible for the potential charges. The letter will also include any sanctions which the Conduct Officer deems appropriate in response to the situation. If a student chooses not to complete the sanctions
within the timeline stated in the letter, a hold will be placed on the students registration.
7. Appeal: Any student found responsible for a violation of the Code of Conduct may appeal the decision within 7 working days to the Vice President for Enrollment Administration and Student Success. Please refer to Section IV.E. for details on the appeal process.
8. Appeal Decision: The Student will be informed in writing of the outcome of the appeal.
C. SANCTIONS
One or more of the following may be imposed when there is a finding
that a student has violated the Colleges Code of Conduct.
1. Warning: A Notice served upon the student advising him/her that he/she is violating or has violated College regulations.
2. Probation: After a finding of violation of the Code of Conduct, restriction of students privileges for a designated period of time including the probability of more severe disciplinary sanctions if the student is found to be violating any College regulations during the probationary period.
3. Other disciplinary sanction: Fines, restitution, denial of privileges, assignment to perform services for the benefit of the college or community; or other sanction that doesnt result in the student being denied the right of attending classes.
4. College suspension or expulsion: An involuntary separation of the student from the College for misconduct not based on academic performance for a specified period of time.
a. Suspension is a separation that shall not exceed three academic terms per suspension for any singular offense or situation. While a student is suspended, he or she is not eligible for admission or re-admission at any of the community colleges within CCCS. Additionally, if a student is suspended at any of the other Auraria Campus Institutions (i.e., Metropolitan State University of Denver or the University of Colorado Denver), he or she will not be eligible for admission or re-admission at Community College of Denver (CCD). Once the suspension is lifted at any of the community colleges within CCCS, the student maybe eligible for admission or re-admission. Examples of suspension include, but are not limited to the following: the college, a department or program, a class, residence hall, use of a college facility or an activity. Students may be suspended from one class period by the responsible faculty member or adjunct instructor. Longer suspensions can only be implemented by the CSSO or designee in accordance with this procedure.
b. Expulsion is an indefinite separation from the college. The student is not eligible for admission or re-admission at any of the community colleges within CCCS. Additionally, if a student is expelled at any of the other Auraria Campus Institutions (eg. Metropolitan State University of Denver or the University of Colorado Denver), he or she will not be eligible for admission or re-admission at CCD. In exceptional cases where a student wants to be considered for admission or re-admission after an expulsion has been implemented, the student bears the burden to prove the behavior that resulted in the expulsion has been resolved. It is within the colleges discretion to admit or deny the student
5. Interim Action: An immediate action taken by the CSSO to ensure the safety and well-being of members of the college community; preservation of college property; or if the student poses a definite threat of disruption or interference to others or the normal operations of the college. In the event of an interim action, the hearing before the CSSO or designee shall occur as soon as possible following the interim action. If the college issues a permanent sanction, the student shall be afforded appeal rights as discussed below. If the college does not implement a permanent sanction, the interim action will be removed from the students record.
6. Alternative Dispute Resolution: During the conduct procedures, the conduct officer may determine that an Alternative Dispute Resolution may be effective for repairing the violation. This resolution may take the following forms: Mediation, Restorative Justice, and other alternatives for a low-level resolution.
D. APPEALS
Appeal (as directed in the CCCS Policy SP 4-30) http://www.cccs.edu/
o


SBCCOE/Policies/SP/PDF/SP4-30.pdf. In the event of an appeal, the Chief Student Services Officer or designee shall give written notice to the other party (e.g., if the accused student appeals, the appeal is shared with the complainant who may also wish to file a response), and then the CSSO or designee will draft a response memorandum (also shared with all parties). All appeals and responses are then forwarded to the appeals officer or committee for initial review to determine if the appeal meets the limited grounds and is timely. The original finding and sanction will stand if the appeal is not timely or substantively eligible, and the decision is final. If the appeal has standing, the documentation is forwarded for consideration. Because the original finding and sanction are presumed to have been decided reasonably and appropriately, the party appealing the decision must specifically cite the error(s) in the original determination on which the appeal is based. The ONLY grounds for appeal are as follows:
1. A material procedural or substantive error occurred that significantly impacted the outcome of the hearing (e.g. substantiated bias, material deviation from established procedures); which must be explained in the written appeal; or
2. To consider new evidence, unavailable during the investigation or hearing that could substantially impact the original finding or sanction. A summary of this new evidence and its potential impact must be included in the written appeal, as well as the reasons the new evidence was not available during the original proceeding.
If the appeals officer or committee determines that a material procedural or substantive error occurred, it may return the complaint to the CSSO or designee with instructions to reconvene to cure the error. In rare cases, where the procedural or substantive error cannot be cured by the CSSO or designee in cases of bias, the appeals officer or committee may order a new hearing be held by a different individual acting in the place of the designated CSSO or designee. The results of a reconvened hearing cannot be appealed. The results of a new hearing can be appealed, once, on the two applicable grounds for appeals.
If the appeals officer or committee determines that new evidence should be considered, it will return the complaint to the CSSO or designee to reconsider in light of the new evidence, only. If the subject matter pertains to discrimination and/or harassment pursuant to SP 4-31a, the appeals officer or committee will return the complaint to the Title IX/EO Coordinator to reconsider in light of the new evidence, only. The reconsideration of the CSSO, designee, or Title DC/EO Coordinator is not appealable.
The procedures governing the hearing of appeals include the following:
All parties should be timely informed of the status of requests for appeal, the status of the appeal consideration, and the results of the appeal decision;
If the appeals officer or committee determines there is new evidence or error in the original proceeding, every opportunity to return the appeal to the CSSO or designee for reconsideration (remand) should be pursued;
Appeals are not intended to be full rehearings of the complaint (de novo). In most cases, appeals are confined to a review of the written documentation or record of the original hearing, and pertinent documentation regarding the grounds for appeal;
An appeal is not an opportunity for an appeals officer or committee to substitute their judgment for that of the CSSO or designee merely because they disagree with its finding and/or sanctions,
Appeals decisions are to be deferential to the original decision, making changes to the findings only where there is clear error and a compelling justification to do so.
Sanctions imposed are implemented immediately unless the CSSO or designee stays their implementation in extraordinary circumstances, pending the outcome of the appeal.
The appeals officer or committee will render a written decision on the appeal to all parties within seven (7) days front receiving the appeal request. The committees decision to deny appeal requests is final.
E. RELEASE OF DISCIPLINARY INFORMATION
Disciplinary records are considered education records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, these records are kept confidential in accordance with this law. Access to any students
disciplinary file shall be governed by provisions of FERPA, and the Campus Security Act (or CleryAct) as amended. A written waiver signed by the student is required for release of disciplinary records to third parties not otherwise mandated by relevant law.
F. STUDENT CONDUCT PROCEDURE ON RECORD Retention and Review
With the exception of cases in which the College has federally mandated reporting requirements, records will be kept according to the Colorado Community College System Records Retention Schedule.
G. SITUATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS
Immunity for Victims/Survivors of Sexual Misconduct Sometimes, victims/survivors are hesitant to report to campus officials because they fear that they themselves may be charged with policy violations, such as underage drinking at the time of the incident. It is in the best interest of this community that as many victims/survivors as possible choose to report to institutional officials. To encourage reporting. Community College of Denver pursues a practice of offering victims/survivors of sexual misconduct limited immunity from being charged for conduct violations related to the sexual misconduct incident (particularly in regard to alcohol and drugs). While violations cannot be completely overlooked, the institution will provide educational options rather than punishment in such cases. Students who report sexual assault will not have a formal conduct record for alcohol or drug violations.
Good Samaritan Sometimes, students are hesitant to offer assistance to others, for fear that they may get themselves in trouble (for example, as student who has been drinking underage might hesitate to help take a sexual misconduct victim/survivor to the Campus Police). Community College of Denver pursues a practice of limited immunity for students who offer help to others in need. While policy violations cannot be overlooked, the institution will provide educational options, rather than punishment, to those who offer their assistance to others in need. In these cases a student will not receive a formal conduct record when seeking assistance for another.
H. MISCELLANEOUS
Time limits for scheduling of hearings may be extended at the discretion of the Impartial Decision Maker.
The procedural rights afforded to students above may be waived by the student.
Students should be aware of the following policy: Policy Statement Pursuant to statute, it is the Boards policy that there shall be no admission requirements imposed upon any student except those listed below concerning proof of immunization. Admission to a college does not guarantee enrollment in specific programs which may have prerequisites designed to facilitate successful completion. Admission may be denied in accordance with the provisions of this policy.
Proof of Immunization: Traditionally aged students seeking admission to residential colleges must show proof of immunization as required by Section 4, Title 25, Part Nine CRS and implementing rules prior to attending on-campus classes at the college. Nontraditional adult students are defined as those students who have attained the age of 19 years of age or older.
Review of Denial: Review of a denial of admission or denial of continued enrollment or re-enrollment of students shall be in accordance with the colleges disciplinary procedures.
Procedures: The System President shall promulgate such procedures as may be necessary for the implementation of this policy.
SECTION V: INTERPRETATION AND REVISION
A. Any question of interpretation regarding the Student Code of Conduct
shall be referred to the Vice President for Enrollment Administration and Student Success, Dean of Student Life, Director of Student Conduct or designee for final determination.
B. The Student Code of Conduct shall be reviewed periodically
(and as needed).

Health Risks of Alcohol and Drug Use Alcohol Affects the Body
Alcohol is a drug. It is important for students and staff to understand that alcohol abuse impairs judgment and the peripheral and central nervous system. Alcohol affects different people in different ways. Some of the characteristics that determine the way alcohol affects people include:
Gender
Mood
Body Weight
Type of Alcohol
Full/Empty Stomach
Speed of Consumption
Use of Medication or Other Drugs
For most people, the effects of alcohol are determined by simple volume.
Alcohol Impairment
When a person drinks alcohol, it can enter the bloodstream as soon as they begin to drink. The molecular structure of alcohol (or ethanol) is small, so the alcohol can be absorbed or transferred into the blood through the mouth, the walls of the stomach, and the small intestine.
The stomach has a relatively slow absorption rate; it is the small intestine that absorbs most of the alcohol. It is important to keep the alcohol in the stomach as long as possible by eating food, which dilutes the alcohol and keeps it from entering the small intestine so quickly. Once alcohol gets into the bloodstream it moves through the body and comes into contact with virtually every organ. However, some of the highest concentrations, and the highest impact, are caused by the alcohol that reaches the brain.
The body is quite efficient when it comes to dealing with alcohol. The liver is designed to metabolize the alcohol as it is consumed. Enzymes break down the alcohol into harmless products and then it is excreted. However, the liver can only handle so much alcohol at a time. For a person of average weight and body type, the liver and small intestine can handle alcohol at a rate of about one drink per hour.
If a person drinks at a faster rate than one drink per hour, the alcohol stays in the body waiting to be metabolized. If there is more alcohol in the body than can be metabolized, the result is increasing levels of intoxication.

CCD faculty believes that no restrictions should hamper the spirit of investigation, free inquiry, and open discussion in the classroom. Faculty exercises professional judgment in selecting and interpreting ideas. They have the freedom to choose the methods of instruction, guidance, tutoring, testing, and evaluation to achieve these goals.
Campus Crime Information
The college provides to all prospective students and CCD employees the Campus Security Policies and Procedures and the most recent campus crime statistics. This is part of the Federal Law No.101-542, the Student Right-to-Know, and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1999 (formerly the Campus Security Act of1990).
The Clery Report can be viewed at: http://www.ahec.edu/for-cam-pus-faculty-staff/auraria-campus-police-department/clery-act/
Statement Regarding Registered Sex Offenders
Colorado Revised Statutes requires that each institution of post-secondary education in the state shall provide a statement to its campus community identifying the name and location at which members of the community may obtain the law enforcement agency information collected pursuant to 19-3-412(6.3), C.R.S., concerning registered sex offenders. Information concerning persons who are required by Colorado law to register as sex offenders, including registered sex offenders who are enrolled, employed, or volunteering at CCD, may be obtained from the Denver Police Department, 1331 Cherokee St. (720-913-2000) or the Auraria Campus Police (303- 556-3271).
CCD Sexual Misconduct Policies
Board Policy (BP) 3-120 and System Presidents Procedure (SP) 4-120 provide that Colorado Community College System shall not unlawfully discriminate based on sex/gender in its employment conditions or educational programs or activities. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex/ gender discrimination.
The CCD community has the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the CCD community are expected to conduct themselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Information from College Procedure HR-9, Sexual Misconduct, is provided below and a link to the procedure is available at https://www.ccd.edu/files/ hrccdsexualmisconduct2012.pdf.
Sexual Misconduct offenses include, but are not limited to:
Sexual Harassment
Non-Consensual Sexual Contact (or attempts to commit same)
Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse (or attempts to commit same)
Sexual Exploitation
Sexual Harassment is unwelcome, gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it has the effect of unreasonably interfering with, denying, or limiting someone tire ability to participate in or benefit from CCDs educational programs and/ or activities, or work activities, and, the unwelcome behavior is based on power differentials (quid pro quo), the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation.
Quid pro quo sexual harassment exists when there are unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature, and, submission to or rejection of such conduct results in adverse educational or employment action; or affects the terms or conditions of education or employment, or activities with the College.
Hostile environment includes any situation in which there is harassing conduct that is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it alters the conditions of employment or limits, interferes with, or denies educational benefits or opportunities, from both a subjective (the alleged victims) and an objective (reasonable persons) viewpoint.
Retaliatory harassment is any adverse employment or educational action taken against a person because of the persons perceived participation in a complaint or investigation of discrimination or sexual misconduct.
Non-consensual sexual contact is any intentional sexual touching, however slight, with any object, by any individual upon any individual that is without consent and/or by force.
Non-consensual sexual intercourse is any sexual penetration however slight, with any object, by any individual upon any individual that is without consent and/or by force.
Consent must be clear, knowing and voluntary. Consent is active, not passive. Silence, in and of itself, cannot be interpreted as consent. Consent can be given by words or actions, as long as those words or actions create mutually understandable clear permission regarding willingness to engage in (and the conditions of) sexual activity. Also, in order to give effective consent, one must be of legal age. Further, consent to any one form of sexual activity cannot automatically imply consent to any other forms of sexual activity. Previous relationships or prior consent cannot imply consent to future sexual acts.
Force is the use of physical violence and/or imposing on someone physically to gain sexual access. Force also includes threats, intimidation (implied threats), and coercion that overcomes resistance or produces consent.
Incapacitation is a state where someone cannot make rational, reasonable decisions because they lack the capacity to give knowing consent. Incapacitation could result from mental disability, sleep, involuntary physical restraint, or from the ingestion of rape drugs. Possession, use and/or distribution of any of these substances, including, but not limited to Rohypnol, Ketomine, GHB, Burundanga, etc. is prohibited, and administering one of these drugs to another person is a violation of this procedure. More information on these drugs can be found at http://www.911rape.org/. Having sex with someone whom you know to be, or should know to be, incapacitated (mentally or physically) is a violation of college procedure HR-9.
Sexual exploitation occurs when anyone takes non-consensual or abusive sexual advantage of another for his/her own advantage or benefit, or to benefit or advantage anyone other than the one being exploited, and that behavior does not otherwise constitute one of other sexual misconduct offenses.
Examples of sexual exploitation include, but are not limited to, invasion of sexual privacy, non-consensual video or audio-taping of sexual activity, or viewing or possessing child or adult pornography at work or on college owned property.
CCD can only respond to allegations of misconduct if it is aware of the misconduct. Further, CCD can more effectively investigate the sooner the allegation is brought to its attention. Any employee, student, autho-

For students, such measures include, but are not limited to: modification of living arrangements, class schedule reassignment, interim suspension from the College pending an investigation, and reporting the matter to the Auraria Campus Police.
Not all forms of sexual misconduct will be deemed to be equally serious offenses, and CCD reserves the right to impose different sanctions, ranging from verbal warning to expulsion, dismissal, termination, or no-tres-pass order, depending on the severity of the offense. CCD will consider the concerns and rights of both the complainant and the respondent.
Auraria Campus Sexual Assault Policy
Statement of Purpose This Policy was developed collaboratively by the Auraria Higher Education Center (Center) and its constituent institutions Community College of Denver, Metropolitan State University of Denver, and University of Colorado Denver for the purpose of implementing provisions of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, 20 U.C.S. £ 1092(f), relating to the response of the Auraria Campus Police Department and the constituent institutions to students who are victims of sexual assault. The Auraria Campus is committed to responding appropriately to all reports of sexual assaults and to working collaboratively with other law enforcement and government and community agencies.
In the development of this Policy, the Auraria Campus also collaborated with the Sexual Assault Interagency Council and adhered to the spirit of the Denver Sexual Assault Response Protocol, which was signed by the chief executives of the constituent institutions on November 7, 2005. This Protocol is available online at http://www.denversaic.org.
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.
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 Center at Auraria. During regular business hours, victims should call the Health Center at 303-556-2525 for immediate care or an appointment.

TERMS
ACADEMIC
Capstone Courses: These courses, usually taken during students final semester at CCD, review and assess the skills students have learned in the program of study. All courses identified as capstone courses require a grade of C or better for graduation. Capstone courses must be taken at CCD.
Core Curriculum: These courses fulfill lower-division general education requirements as defined and agreed on between the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education and the governing boards of all public four-year institutions in Colorado.
Corequisite: When a course has a corequisite, it means that students are required to take another course concurrent with (or prior to) enrollment in the course. Knowing the information presented in the corequisite course is considered necessary in order for students to be successful in the course. It is the students obligation to know and meet course corequisites. These are stated in the course description section of the CCD Catalog and the Schedule of Classes. Corequisites will be checked at registration. The student may be required to file proof of meeting corequisites.
Course Number: A three-digit number is assigned to all college courses. Courses listed in the 100s are designated for freshman level; 200s are intended for sophomore level. Courses numbered below 100 are developmental and generally cannot be used towards degree or certificate requirements and are not transferable to four-year institutions.
options from which students may choose. They are not included in the total credit hours required for the program or plan of study. An avei'age, fulltime student course load is 15 credit hours.
Credit Hours in Parentheses: For each academic program listed in this catalog, credit hours for some classes are in parentheses. These classes are optional and students may choose to take one or more to fulfill the program requirements. Students should always review their choices with their Program Advisor.
General Education: General education is the liberal arts component of a baccalaureate degree that may include lower- and upper-division courses as defined by each institution.
Guaranteed Transfer Courses (GT): Some of the classes students take at CCD are guaranteed to transfer to any public college or university in the state and count toward a four-year degree as though the class was taken at that institution. In the Course Description section of the catalog, those Guaranteed Transfer Courses include a code such as GT-SC1 which indicates that the class is guaranteed to transfer as a science credit.
Major: The field of academic study in which a student specializes. The selected major will determine which courses are required for a students program of study.
Plan of Study: A Plan of Study consists of at least 4 courses from the same or a related subject area (course prefix). The plan of study will not appear on students diplomas or transcripts.
prior knowledge may be demonstrated by a test score or successful completion of a prior course (ex. must have completed ENG 121 with a grade of C or better). Completion of the prerequisite is required prior to enrolling in the course, and U/D, U/F, D, F, or I grades are not acceptable. It is the student's obligation to know and meet course prerequisites. These are stated in the course description section of the CCD catalog and the Schedule of Classes. Prerequisites will be checked at registration. The student may be required to file proof of meeting prerequisites.
Note: Students who have taken prerequisite courses longer than seven years ago are strongly encouraged to take an assessment test over the prerequisite material to ensure adequate prior knowledge to be successful in future courses. The outcome of the assessment test will help determine whether the prerequisite course needs to be retaken. The assessment test is available in the CCD Testing Center.
For Health Science degrees, because of program accreditation requirements, students must have completed all science courses within the previous seven years before the first day of class in a health program.
Credit Hour: This is the basic unit of academic credit. Generally, one credit hour is earned by attending a lecture class for a 50-minute period, once a week, for a full semester. In a laboratory course, one-credit hour is granted for two to three 50-minute periods per week in the laboratory.
An associates degree requires a minimum of 60 credits. Credit hours in parentheses, ex. (3), are
Prefix: Each course has a three-letter code designating the instructional department or division. For example, ENG is the prefix for English courses.
Prerequisite: When a course has a prerequisite, it means that a student must have certain knowledge to be successful in the course. The
Section Number: Athree-digit number or letter combination is assigned to all college courses. The section number is found immediately following the course number (ex. ENG 121-111 = Section 111 of English Composition I). This number is not indicative of the number of sections offered at CCD.

ASSOCIATE OF ARTS DEGREE & PLANS OF STUDY
University Parallel, Transfer Program
An Associate of Arts (AA) degree provides a learning foundation in communications, social sciences, arts, and 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, business, 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 better. Students planning to transfer should familiarize themselves with the full requirements of the school to which they plan to transfer and should consult with their Program Advisor.

AA Degree Program Requirements
Within the AA degree, the college offers plans of study in the following areas: Art, Behavioral Sciences, English/Journalism, English/Writing, Graphic Design, Music Industry Studies/Music Business/Recording Arts, Music Performance, Theatre, and World Languages. The same course may not count toward both the general education requirements and the area of study. A plan of study consists of at least four identified courses in one academic area. If students do not select a plan of study or have fewer than 60 credit hours with their core courses and plan of study, they should take transfer electives (GT Pathways) as needed to complete the 60 credit hours required for the AA degree. Up to 4 credits of physical education may apply to this degree. All courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. All graduates of the AA degree must meet the program requirements listed in the Associate of Arts Degree Plan below.
NOTE: Students who have taken prerequisite courses longer than seven years ago are strongly encouraged to take an assessment test over the prerequisite material to ensure adequate prior knowledge to be successful in future courses. The outcome of the assessment test will help determine if the prerequisite course needs to be retaken. The assessment test is available in the CCD Testing Center.
For Health Science degrees, because of program accreditation requirements, students must have completed all science courses within the previous seven years before the first day of class in a health program.

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE (AS) DEGREE & PLANS OF STUDY 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 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 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 AS degree may transfer into liberal arts or sciences programs in all public baccalaureate colleges and universities with junior standing. All courses must be completed with a grade of C or better. Students planning to transfer should familiarize themselves with the full requirements of the school they plan to attend. Many of these guides are available in the Transfer Success Center. Students should also check the website of their transfer school as well for the most recent information.

An associates degree can be earned without completing a study area. Students must complete a total of 60 credit hours for the associates 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 Program Advisor 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.
NOTE: Students who have taken prerequisite courses longer than seven years ago are strongly encouraged to take an assessment test over the prerequisite material to ensure adequate prior knowledge to be successful in future courses. The outcome of the assessment test will help the student determine whether or not he or she needs to re-take the prerequisite course. The assessment test is available in the CCD Testing Center.

Associate of Applied Science Degree in Medical Assisting Center for Health Sciences at Lowry
Medical Assisting AAS Degree
The Medical Assisting AAS Degree program provides training for both front office administrative and back office clinical duties. It is designed to train medical assistants in mastering clinical techniques such as: preexamination and examination assistance, obtaining medical histories and vital signs, minor office surgery, routine laboratory procedures including phlebotomy and EKG, and maintaining and sterilizing equipment. Administratively, students will learn the necessary office skills to maintain a clinic including: answering telephones, greeting patients, handling correspondence, scheduling appointments, billing and bookkeeping. This program seeks to develop competent medical assistants to work in a variety of settings including, but not limited to, clinics and hospitals.
In addition to obtaining an AAS in Medical Assisting, students completing the program will have also obtained a Nurse Aide Certificate. In the first semester of this program, students will take nurse aide coursework which, when successfully completed, will prepare them to take the state certification exam. Successful completion of the Nurse Aide Certification Exam will allow students to seek employment while continuing their education. Once students complete all of the prerequisite requirements and the full program curriculum, they will have achieved an AAS Degree in Medical Assisting and will be eligible to sit for the registry exam to become either a Certified or Registered Medical Assistant (CMA or RMA respectively).
Students who have completed their nurse aide certification through CCD will be preferentially accepted into the medical assisting bridge pro-
gram contingent upon successful completion of the certification exam and a referral from their program coordinator. Students who attained their Nurse Aide Certificate at a Colorado Community College may have their credits for NUA101 and NUA170 transferred into this bridge program. Students who attained their credentialing anywhere else will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for transferability of credits. A grade of C or better is required in all courses in order to progress to the next level and to graduate.

I am concluding my first yeal' as pl'esident of Community College of Denver. As I enter my second yeal; I suppose I would be considered a l"ising freshman or a newly-minted sophom01'e. Eithel' way, I'mfinding CCD a delightful haven of intellectual growth and curiosity. That's exactly the thing that makes CCD so special. It encoumges growth and curiosity. It is becoming more prevalent these days to refer to community college as having admissions policies that are rooted in "guided enrollment" rather than "open enrollment". Don't get me wrong, CCD has no intentions of turning any students with the g1it and determination to ac ademically excel away. Like other community colleges focused on retention, persistence and graduation rather than double digit admissions growth CCD is seeking incoming students with a mind-set bent toward personal and academic g1owth. We seek to have enter our ranks men and women regardless of age or any other consideration -who are open-minded, curious and perfectly willing to let us guide you toward your academic goals. This growth mind-set acknowledges a cou ple of key things. First, that college is a personal and family investment that will require sac rifices. No more marathon television watching. No more partying 'til the wee hours of the morning. In some cases very little time to be the always available spouse, sibling or responsible horne-care provider. At bottom, college requires hard choices. Second, the choice means that you will become more different and, perhaps, more unknowable to those believing that they know you well. They know the old you. The new you they will have to corne to know on your new growth terms. Let me give you an example A first-generation college mom attending CCD may soon discover that green vegetables retain their nutrients best if microwaved rather than boiled in a pot, She changes her cooking methods and her sisters berate her for trying to act better than they are even despairing that Big Mama never cooked that way. If this situation resembles one that you have faced. you have to stiffen your back with the sure knowledge that, well knowledge is power and your family members may eventually corne around. This growth mind-set carries with it a huge portion of curiosity. In fact, your curiosity may have given rise to your growtll mind-set whether you are a recent high school graduate or a sea-WELCOME TO O FFI CE OF THE P RESIDENT MESSAGE FROM EVERETTE J FREEMA N so ned worker wishing to retool for a better life, curiosity has driven you to see CCD as a part of your in1Inediate plans Good choice again. Den ver. this majestic city that w e call horne has its roots in pioneers and settlers some First Nation people and other late followers -who cu riously ventured out into the unknown to make Colorado and the Denver metropolitan area home.

It also is the only community college in the nation to share a canlpus with two four -year universities Metropolitan State University of Denver and University of Colorado Denver. The three institutions share classroom buildings a regional library, recreational facilities a performing arts center, and a student union. CCD is one of13 institutions in the Colorado Community College System.

COLLEGE GUARANTEES WE GUARANTEE YOUR TRANSFER To help elinunate the guesswork of transferring course credits and asso ciate's degrees, Colorado has developed a statewide guaranteed transfer program c all ed GT Patllways (guaranteed transfer pathways) and many statewide articulation agreements. Community College of Denver adheres to these established programs and agreements to guarantee the transfer of credit. GT Pathways applies to all Colorado public colleges and universities including Community College of Denver. After starting at any public col lege or muversity in Colorado and, upon acceptance to anotller, students can transfer up to 31 credits of previously and successfully (C or better) completed GT Pathways coursework. These courses will automatically transfer and continue to count towards general education core or graduation requirem ents for any liberal arts or science associate's or bachelor's d egree. Students should check with the school they wish to attend so they are clear about which credits will transfer beyond any that are guaranteed by GT Pathways. The purpose of a statewide transfer articulation agreement is to identify the courses a student at a Colorado public commll\lity college must complete as part of an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) degree to be guaranteed to be able to complete a bachelor s degree program (BA or BS) at any public four-year college or university that offers that bachelor S degree pl'Ogram Students should check with their Program Advisor at CCD and the 4 -year school they wish to transfer into to ensure they are registering for the appropriate courses. These state wide transfer articulation agreements are also referred to as Degrees with Designation. For more information see www.highered.colorado. gov/academics /transfers/students.htrnl Besides GT Pathways and the statewide transfer articulation agree ments listed above many colleges and universities have other transfer agreements that may apply to students. For students who complete an Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree 60 credit hours of their AA or AS degree are guaranteed to transfer to a Colorado public four-year school once tlley are accepted for admission; students may be able to finish a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree within another 60 credit hours. This is called a 60 + 60 transfer plan. Note tllat some bac helor s degrees require more than an additional 60 credits to complete. When ill doubt, shldents should speak to a Program Advisor.

This number is the student identification number (SID). A social security number is required for financial aid the College Opportunity Fund, VA benefits, and records integrity and tax purposes. TUITION CLASSIFICATION (RESIDENCy) Tuition classification is governed by state law (Title 23, Article 7 of the Colorado Revised Statutes of19 73, as anlended) and by judicial deci sions that app ly to all public institutions of higher education in Colorado and is subject to change at any time. The college is required to apply the ntles set forth in the law and does not have authority to make exceptions unless specifically permitted by law. In-state status requires domicile in Colorado for one year prior to the first day of class. Domicile is defined as an individual's true, fixed and permanent home and place of habitation. An individual may only have one domicile at anyone time. At the beginning of the one year period, individuals are expected to take appropriate actions to demonstrate the intent to remain in Colo rado permanently. This includes but is not linlited to: surrendering legal ties Witll their former state of reside n ce, obtaining Colora do Driver's License/Identification within the statutory period, registering motor vehicle within the statutory period, registering to vote in Colorado, obtaining permanent employment in Color a do filing income tax in Colorado, any other factors that document the individual s intent to establish a permanent home in Colorado. Individuals are qualified to begin tlle one year domicile period upon reaching 22 years of age and thus would satisfy the one year domicile requirement at 23 years of age The one year domicile period also begins upon m arriage or emancipatio n if the individual is under 22 years of age. Individuals under the age of 23 are eligib l e for in-state tuition if a parent or court appointed legal guardian meets the requirements of the tuition law. The tuition law recognizes the special circumstances regarding military personnel. honorably discharged veterans, Olympic athletes inmates, recent Colorado high school graduates or GED recipients and individuals who re locate to Colorado for employment purposes. Please contact Admissions Registration & Records at 303-556-2420 for information on specific circlUllstances Active duty members of the armed forces, as well as their spouse and dependent children, whose permanent duty station is in Colorado will be charged in-state tuition, even if the permanent duty station changes as long as the student (armed forces member, their s pouse or dependent child) is continually enrolled in classes. Service members should contact their military base Education Office for Eligible non-U.S. citizens must provide imlnigration documents, which may include, but are not limited to 1-94 Arrival-Departure Re cord Permanent Residency Card or other required documents. COLORADO ASSET BILL Senate Bill 13-033 also known as Colorado ASSE T a llows U.S. Citizens Permanent Residents, and students without lawfi.tl immigration status to receive in-state tuition through attendance and graduation from a Colorado high school or through attendance at a Col orado high sc h oo l combined with obtaining the GED. To qualify for in-state tuition under ASSET, students must: Have attended a public or private high school in Colorado for at least three years inunediately preceding the date the student either gradu ated from a Colorado high school or completed a general equivalency diploma in Colorado; and Be admitted to a Colorado college or mUversity within 12 months of graduation from a Colorado high school or completion of a Colo radoGED. Students without lawfi.tl immigration status must apply for COF and complete an affidavit stating that the student has applied for lawful presence or will apply as soon as he or she is eligib l e to do so.

As with the traditional domicile path, residency c l assification will be determined based off the information and documents submitted by the student. The burden of proof is on the individual seeking instate tuition. INITIAL CLASSIFICATION Students are classified as resident or non-resident for tuition purposes based on the information provided on the Application for Admission. Failure to answer all questions cottld lead to initial classification as a non-resident. After the student's status is determined, it remains un changed in the absence of satisfactory evidence to the contrary. CHANGE IN TUITION CLASSIFICATION New students who believe their initial tuition classification was based on incomplete information and wish to prove elig ibility must submit an Amended Application Form by census date of the earliest part-of-term in which they are enrolled. Continuing students who attended and paid non-resident tuition or individuals emancipated prior to 22 years of age shall have up to 30 days from the first day of class to complete the Peti tion for InState Tuition If sufficient evidence is not presented by the published deadline the classification becomes final as to that term. Information submitted to qualify for in-state classification is sub ject to independent verification and will not be returned to students. Individuals submitting false information or falsified supporting documents are subject to college disciplinary proceedings and may face criminal charges. TUITION CLASSIFICATION FOR REVERSE TRANSFER DEGREES When awarding a Reverse Transfer Degree to a non-active student, CCD will use the last known residency as listed in CCD's student information syst em. This will not impact tuition classific ation as the student will hav e a registration hold placed for the term in which the degree is being awarded. Students will be made inactive for any fuhlre terms and must reapply for admission ifthey seek re-enrollment at CCD APPEAL PROCEDURE Students who are denied instate tuition will not be allowed to drop courses after the census date. Students are responsible for dropping all

PAGE 18

courses by census date even if a decision on the Petition for In-State Tuition h as not yet been received. Students who are denied in-state tuition may appeal the decision of the Tuition Classification Officer. The decision of the ap p eals committee is final and will not be overturned by the Colorado Department of Higher E du cation (CD HE). CCD reserves the right to correct tuition classification afte r the dead l ine in cases where the college believes an error was made. Students who are residents of Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) states may be e li gib l e to request a reduced Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) tuition rate which is l ess than the non-resident rate. WICHE states include Alaska, Arizona, Cali fornia, Hawaii. Idaho, Montana, Nevada New Mexico, North Dakot a Oregon South Dakota, Utah, Washington, and Wyoming. Students applying for the WUE program must provide evidence of domicile in the qualifying states and will be required to reapply for WUE each academic year.

Veter ans s h ould consult with the VA Certifying Official prior to withdrawing from a course as it may impact their educational benefits. INTERINSTITUTIONAL REGISTRATION Under the inter-institutional registration program, CCD and its partners on the Auraria Campus (MSU Denver and CU Denver) allow students to take select college-level courses at a host institution if space is avail able. CCD students have the advantage of paying lower tuition rate for courses offered by the host institution while MSU Denver and CU Denver students have access to a diverse selection of electives and courses that may not be available at their home institution. Online, off -campus. or extended campus courses are not covered under this agreement. For detailed instructions on how to register for inter-institutional courses, please refer to www.ccd.edu.

CCD students are required to meet MSU Denver or CU Denver course prerequisites prior to registration and may not register for more credits at the host institution than what they are registered for at CCD Students may be subject to additional course fees at the host institutions and are responsible for paying these fees directly to MSU Denver or CU Denver. In order to ensure that an inter-institutional course will transfer to CCD and apply towards the student's certificate or degree program, CCD encourages students to meet with a General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor prior to registering for an inter-institutional course. Inter-institutional course registration does not alter certificate and degree require ments. Students may be required to submit a Course Substitution Form and an official transcript from the host institution in order to have interinstitutional courses apply to their program requirements for graduation. MSU Denver and CU Denver Students MSU Denver and CU Denver students are permitted to take classes at CCD through the interinstitutional registration process after obtaining an inter-institutional form from their home institution. Forms must be completed with required approvals and signatures from the home institution prior to submission at CCD. Students must submit an online application for admission at CCD and must adhere to procedures and deadlines established by their home and host institutions.

COLLEGE OPPORTUNITY FUND (COF) The College Opportunity Fund (COF) provides a tuition stipend for in-state resident students completing undergraduate coursework at a public or participating private college. The amount of the per-credithour tuition stipend is set annually by the General Assembly and pays a portion of students' total in -state tuition. In-state resident students must create a lifetim e account at www ccd.edu/cof and authorize the use of the stipend each semester through CCDConnect. Students who fail to apply and/or authorize the use of the COF stipend within the time allowed will be responsible for the full cost of their tuition. TUITION REFUND POLICY Students may receive a refund oftl.lition and fees for any c l asses dropped by the census date or for any classes the co llege canceled.

EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCE APPEAL PROCESS The Extenuating Circumstance Appeals Committee may approve a late withdrawal and/or tuition credit for emergencies that exist beyond the student's control preventing compliance with the established dates and deadlines for that term. To receive an Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packet, studen ts must first meet with their General Studies Advisor or Progranl Advisor. Students must submit a co mpleted Extenuating Circwnstance Ap peal packet and supporting documentation within one calendar year from the end of the semester for which the student is appealing. The Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packet must include all required application forms and all supporting documentation. Com pleted Extenuating Circumstance Appeal packets will be reviewed and the student will be notified by CCD email or the phone number on file of the committee's decision within 30 calendar days. Written notification will also be mailed to the student's address on file. The appeal packet must include all required signatures to be considered. The Extenuating Circumstance Appeal will be denied if the student failed to comply with the deadline if the extenuating circumstance allowed for submission in a timely manner. If an appeal is denied, a student may request to have the appeal recon sidered by the committee, only if the student can supp ly additional documentation to support the exten u ating circumstance. When a sec ond review is requ ested, the decision made by the committee is final. Students who have received financial aid and are granted an Extenu ating Circumstance Appeal may not receive refunds.

ACADEMIC CCD has policies and standards to help students know what to expect of CCD and what CCD expects of students. The following is a summary of the information students need to know. A General Studies Advisor, Pmgram AdvisD?' or anyone on the Studen t Affairs staff can help students understand these policies, standards and rights as a CCD student. ACADEMIC PROGRESS GUIDELINE All CCD students are expected to maintain satisfactory aca d emic progress. Recognizing the value of measuring academic progress for all students, eCD has established the following practice and procedure for measuring academic standing. This procedure is intended to be infor mational and helpful but also establishes clear standards of academic progress that must be met and maintained in order to be a successful student at CCD. A student's academic standing at one Colorado Com munity College System (eCCS) college will impact academic standing at other CCCS colleges. ACADEMIC PROGRESS PROCESS For students who have attempted fewer than 9 credit hours, CCD will monitor satisfactory progress through an Academic Alert process. These students are not subject to Academic Standing. Academic Standing applies to all students who hav e attempted 9 or more credits at a cees college, regardless of the number of term credits they attempt from that point forward Academic Standing is applied con sistently and uniformly within each CCCS institution. CCD will determine Academic Standing following the posting of the majority of term grades for each semester. Students placed on probation or suspension will be notified of their status. Suspended students will not be allowed to attend any cecs college in the subsequent semester/s unless an appeal is approved. Academic Standing status will be noted on the advising, official, and unofficial transcripts. The Academic Standing of a student is not specific or limited to CCD as it will impact a student's e nrollment at other CCCS colleges ACADEMIC PROGRESS DEFINITIONS Only college level classes will be used to calculate term and cumula tiveGPAs. This includes summer term courses. Only courses taken "i n residence" will be used for this procedure; "In residence" means courses taken at CCD. Courses taken elsewhere and transferred in do not apply. The GPA calculations for this proce dure may not match those used for financial aid purposes. ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARDS Initial Standing Shldent has attempted fewer than 9 cumulative credit hours with a cumulative GPA that is greater than or equal to 2.00 for all classes attempted. Academic Alert -Student has attempted fewer than a cumulative 9 credits with a cumulative GPA less than 2 .00 for all classes attempted. Good Standing -Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative GPA greater than or equal to 2 .00 for all classes attempted Probation -Student has attempted at least 9 cumul ative credit hours and has a cumulative GPA less than 2.00 for all classes attempted. Returning to Good Standing -By the conclusion of the Academic Probation term, the student must raise their cumulative GPA to at least 2.0. If this con diti on is met, the student retunlS to Good Standing. Probation (continuing) -If a student on Academic Probation earns a term GPA of at least 2.00 for all classes attempted during the term, but fails to raise their cumulative GPA to at least 2.0 for all classes attempted, the student will be allowed to attend the next term, but will remain o n Academic Probation. Suspension -If a student on Academic Probation earns a term GPA of less than 2.0 for all c las ses attempted the student will be suspended and will not be allowed to enroll at any eccs college for the next term, excluding summer term (as summer term may not be used as a "suspension term"). ACADEMIC PROGRESS SUSPENSION RULES Summer term m ay not be used as a "suspension term". Summer tenn may be used to remediate (improve) the GPA if ap prov ed by CCD. If a student wishes to enroll for summer term after being suspended, they will need to follow CCD's Suspension Reinstatement Procedure. Initial suspension is for one term, excluding SWlilller term. A second s uspension is for two terms, excluding summer term. A third suspension is for two full years or 4 academic terms exclud ing summers. A student who has served the suspension time for initial suspension, second suspension, or third suspension, will be required to submit an Academic Suspension Appeals Pac k e t and meet with their CeD Gen eral Shldies Advisor or Program Advisor to review and sign the packet. If approved by the Academic Appeals Corrunittee the student will be reinstated for two classes and be required to complete an account ability contract during their semester of reinstatement. ACADEMIC PROGRESS SUSPENSION APPEALS Students may appeal their suspension by following the eCD Suspen sion Reinstatement Procedure. If a student intends to transfer to another eccs college, the student may appeal to the transferring CCCS college. If the student's suspension appeal is approved the shldent will be reinstated for the semester approve d Students put on Suspension will be dropped from all courses for any future terms. Students will not be able to register for courses until they meet the requirements outlined in the Suspension Reinstatement Procedure. Students are ultimately responsible for their enrollment and need to check their e nrollment schedule for accuracy.

PAGE 25

ACADEMIC INFORMATION Academic Progress Suspension Reinstatement Procedures The Academic Suspension Reinstatement procedures require that a student meet with a General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to review the Academic Suspension Reinstatement Packet prior to submitting it to the Academic Appeals Committee for review. The comp leted and reviewed packet should be turned into the Academic Advising Center, Confluence 123. The Academic Suspension Packet can b e found at www.ccd.edu / studentforms under Academic Advising Center. Students should be prepared for the session with their General Studies Advisor/Program Advisor by reading and completing the forms in the packet. The follow ing should be presented to the Advisor for review and signature: An unofficial transcript/copy of academic record. A printed Degree Works audit. A typed Letter of Appeal Any supporting documentation o utlining the circumstances that led to suspension. After the Appeals committee r eviews all appeals, an Academic Suspen sio n Committee member will notify a student of their reinstatement status via their CCCS email account and by phone. If the student is approved for reinstatement, the student must follow the planned and approved courses outlined in the Academic Reinstatement Plan and sign a reinstatement contract with the AAC Suspension Advisor. In order to continue enrollment at CCD, students must meet all requirements outlined in their Reinstatement Contract. CREDIT COMPLETION PROGRESS Recognizing the value of credit completion for all students with regards to retention, transfer and credential attainment; CCD has established the following practices and procedures for measuring credit comple tion progress. Students must meet the standards of credit completion progress in order to be sllccessful students at CCD. CREDIT COMPLETION PROCESS For students who have attempted fewer than 9 credit hours, CCD will monitor credit completion through an Alert process. These students are not subject to the Credit Completion Progress guideline Credit Completion Progress standards apply to all stud ents who have attempted 9 or more credits at CCD, regardless of the number of term credits they attempt from that point forward. Credit Completion Progress standards will be applied consistently and uniformly within each CCCS college CCD will determine Credit Completion Progress standards following the posting of the majority of term gra des for each semester. Students placed on warning 1 warning 2 or warning 3 will be notified of their status. Credit Completion Progress status will be noted on the advising and unofficial transcripts only (it will not b e noted on the official transcript). The Credit Completion Progress status of a student is specific to CCD and does not impact a student's enrollment at other CCCS colleges. CREDIT COMPLETION DEFINITIONS Credit Completion Progress includ es all credit bearing classes (developmental and college level) which will be used to calc ulate the percent of attempted credits passed. This includes summer term courses. Only courses taken "in residence will be used for this calculation; "In residence"means taken at CCD. Courses taken elsewhere and transf erred in do not apply. The credit comp letion rate for this procedure will not necessarily match those used for financial aid purposes or athletic eligibility. Grades considered to be passing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: A, B C D S/A, S I B S IC, and S. Grades considered to be failing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: I, F, U/D, U/F, W, and AW. Cours e Completion Rate is calc ulated by dividing the total attempted credits by the number of credits successfully completed as per the definitions above. CREDIT COMPLETION STANDARDS Initial Standing -Student has attempted fewer than 9 cumulative credit hours will not be assessed for credit completion. Good Standing -Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a clUllulative course completion rate of at least 50% Warning 1 -Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course comp letion rate ofless than 50% for the first time. Warning 2 -Student has attempted at least 9 cumul ative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate ofless than 50% for the second time. Warn ing (continued) -If a student on Credit Completion Probation passes 50% or more of their attempted term credits, but fails to raise tlIeir cumulative completion rate to 50%, they will be allowed to continue tlle next tenn, but will remain on Credit Completion Probation Warning 3 -Student has attempted at least 9 cumulative credit hours and has a cumulative course completion rate ofless than 50% for the third time. CREDIT COMPLETION WARNING RULES Students on Warning 1 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will be given information on student support services at CCD. Students on Warning 2 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion registra tion hold placed on their CCD student account. The student will not be able to make any changes to their student account until they meet with their General Studies Advisor or Program Advisor to appeal Students on Warning 3 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion registration hold placed on their CCD student account.

ACADEMIC STANDARDS CCD CURRICULUM STANDARDS Community College of Denver follows the Colorado state mandated common course descriptions competencies and outlines for any COUTse offered. regardless of the method of de lively. For online, hybrid and acce l erated courses, CCD uses existing academic structures in the development of courses and curricula. ATTENDANCE Attendance in all class sessions is critical for academic s uccess Regular and punctual attendance is expected, and each instructor will keep a comp lete record of student attendance for the entire length of each course. Students will be counted absent from missed class meetings beginning with the first day of class Faculty may r e port any student who does not attend the first 15 percent (census date) of the course and the student will be dropped and not be allowed to reregister for the course. Any corequisite required for a course that is dropped for non-attendance may also be dropped. Students 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. However, accommodat ions may not be m ade for missed course assignments, participation quizzes tests or clas s ses sions. Students are responsible for learning the material that was taught during the absence and completing all class assignments. The attendance policy for health sciences and other programs may differ because of clinical requirements or rules set by approving agencies. COMMON GRADING SYMBOLS CCD GRADE POLICY Achievement in a course is measured by meeting specific co urse objec tives. CCD students are evaluated using a letter-grade system. The following exp l ains what each grade means. For more information, visit www.ccd.edu, consult the course syllabus or ask the instructor to explain their grading system Colorado Community College System Inventory of Common Grading Symbols A B C D F S U S/A SIB SIC U/D U/F W Excellent or Superior Good Average Deficient Failure Incomplete Satisfactory Unsatisfactory Satisfactory (A-level) work in a developmental and remedial course Satisfactory (B-level) work in a developmental and remedial course Satisfactory (C-Ievel) work in a developmental and remedial course Unsatisfactory (D-level) work in a developmental and remedial course Unsatisfactory (F-level) work in a developmental and remedial course Withdrawal AW Adminis trative Withdrawal AU Audit (No credit awarded) In Progress No Credit Credit for Prior Learning CNV No Grade. Used for High School Level Classes Only CR Credit SP Z Placeholder /Satisfactory Pro gress Placeholder / Missing Grades Other Grades No Longer in Use CNG Conversion (no grade) Withdraw Failure Withdraw Pass Equates to Traditional "D" or "F" I INCOMPLETE The I or incomplete grade is a temporary grade. It is designed for students who have completed a majOlity of the course work (defined as at least 75 percent of all course assignments and tests) in a satisfactory manner (grade C or better) but are unable to complete within the semester due to do cumente d illness or circumstances b eyond their control. If circumstances prevent the student from completing a test or as signments by the end of the term, then it i s the student's responsibility

PAGE 28

to initiate the request for an incomplet e grade from the instructor. The instructor will determine whether the student has a reasonable chance of satisfactorily completing the remaining course activities in a timely manner. In the event that a student and instructor cannot reach resolu tion concerning an Incompl ete, then the student should contact the Department Chair. In requesting an incomp lete grade the student must present the instructor with documentation of circumstances justifying an incom plete grade. The instructor and student will sign an Incomplete Grade form and submit it to the Center Dean for approval While waiting for the work to be completed, the instructor will assign an incomplete grade on the grade roster. Military persOlmel and emergency management officials who are required to go on Temporary Duty (TDY) during a term should contact their instructor for special consideration. Documentation of official TDY assignment is required and must be approved by the Provost. An incomplete grade which is not converted to a letter grade by the instructor after one subsequent semester (not including summer semester ) will become an F grade unless a higher default grade has been assigned by the instructor. To avoid duplicate payment of a course, students should not re-enroll in a class in which an incomplete grade is pending since according to the college s definition of enrollment, they are still enrolled. S SATISFACTORY The satisfactory grade is equivalent to a grade of C or better. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation or in quality points. The course will count for attempted and earned credits. U UNSATISFACTORY The unsatisfactory grade is equivalent to a D or F grade. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count in at tempted credits, but will not carry earned credits S/A. SIB, SIC SATISFACTORY These are satisfactory grades awarded only for developmental and remedial courses. The A. B and C indicate the level of satisfactory performance. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count for attempted and earned credits. UfD UfF UNSATISFACTORY These are unsatisfactory grades awarded only for developmental and remedial courses. The D and F indicate the level of unsatisfactory performance. These grades are not included in the GPA calculation. The course will count in attempted credits but will not c a rry earned credits. W -WITHDRAWAL The W or withdrawal grade is assigned when a student officially with draws from a course after the course census date. A withdrawal can only be processed during the first 80 percent of the course No academic credit is awarded. The course will count in attempted hours. AW -ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL The AW or administrative withdrawal is assigned by the college when a student has been administratively withdrawn. No academic credit is awarded. The course will cotmt in attempted hours. CCD only grants AW grades for extenuating circumstances that are documented. appealed and approved by the Extenuating Circumstance Appeal Committee. LAST DATE OF ATTENDANCE Faculty are required to provide the last date of attendance for each stu dent who is awarded an F I, U, or U /F. REPEAT FIELD INDICATORS -I OR E Assigned for repeated courses on the student's transcript. an I will indicate include in earned hours and GPAcalculation or E will indicate exclude from earned hours and GPA cal c ulation. CREDIT HOURS CCD follows the Colorado Commission on Higher Education recom mendation that "for every hour of credit, students must engage in a minimum of12 5 hours of instructional time" (15 week semester = 50 minutes per week per credit) Therefore all courses including online hybrid, and accelerated are designed and facilitated so that students have the opportunity to devote enough time to meet course objectives. As a general rule for every hour spent in class. students should also plan to dedicate at least two hours (three hours for math/science cours es) outside of class to study and complete assignments. When deciding on a course load students should keep these time requirements in mind. GRADE APPEALS Appeals regarding final grades should be initiated by the student within 60 calendar days after the date grades are posted for the semester in which the grade was awarded Before making an appeal the student should first discuss the grade with the instructor, and then if necessary, with the Department Chair. If there is no resolution the student can appeal the grade by submitting a written statement to the Center Dean explaining the problem. The Center Dean will investigate and respond in writing within 15 days. The Dean s decision is the final step of the grade appeal process. GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA) Grade points measure a student's achievement for the credit hours completed. To calculate the GPA multiply the number of grade points by the number of credit hOUI'S received for each course. Total the number of credits and the number of grade points separately. Divide the total grade points by the total credits. -------------------A 4 grade points B 3 grade points C 2 grade points D 1 grade point F o grade points N o te: All other grades (Satisfactory Unsatisfa c tory, S I A, SIB, SIC, SF, 1, W, AU, A W, NC, U/D U/F) al'e not calculated into the CCD GPA. The following is an example of how to calculate grade point average: C ourse Credits Grade Points ANT 111 Physical 3 A 12=(3 x 4) Anthropology BIOll1 General College 5 A 20=(5x4) Biology CIS 118 Introduction to 3 B 9 =(3 x3) PC Applications ENG 121 English Comp I 3 D 3=(3x 1) POS111 American 3 F 0 =(3 x 0) Government Totals 17 44 Total grade points divided by total credits equals the cumulative grade point average. Therefore, the grade point average for the above example is 44 divided by 17 for a 2.59 GPA. Students may use Degree Works for GPA calculation assistance. REPEATING COURSES All CCD college-level courses may be repeated twice at CCD. For most courses once a student attempts to register for the same course a third time they will be directed to an advisor and must be approved for registration. If a student is denied registration the student has the right to appeal through the Repeat Appeals committ ee. A fourth repeat attempt will require an ap peal whi c h mu s t be approved by the Repeat App e als comlnitt ee.

Veterans who fail to inform CCD s VA Certifying Official that they have stopped at tending a course may receive rul overpayment or debt notification from the VA. Overpayment An overpayment may occur if a student with draws, drops or decreases the amOlmt of credit hours for which they are registered without adding any additional credit hours after initial celtificationhas been sent to the VA. It is the responsibility of the student to pay back the VA if an overpayment occurs. For questions concern ing this please ask CCD's VA Certifying Official. Veterans' Academic Standards of Progress Students using VA educational benefits are responsible for following CCD 's Academic Progress Policy, which explains student GPA re quirements and academic probation processes.

ARMY RESERVE OFFICERS TRAINING CORPS (AROTC) The Military Science Army Reserve Officers' Training Corps (AROTC) Program is offered on the Auraria Campus to all interested students at Community College of Denver. The Depaltment of Military Science offers programs leading to an officer s commission in the active Army, Army Reserve or National Guard, in conjunction with an undergraduate or graduate degree Military Science courses are designed to supplement a regular degree program by providing practical leadership and management experience. Enrollment in the Basic Course (freshman and sophomore years) incurs no military obligation except for Army scholarship recipients. Students may participate in activities with the Buffalo Battalion s Charlie Company located on the Auraria Campus, to include color guard, intramural sports, running club and ranger challenge. Weekly or Saturday leadership labs provide cadets with practical leadership experience and performanceoriented, hands-on instruction outside the classroom. Leadership labs are compulsory for enrolled cadets. Physical Training (PT) is conducted three times a week with the p u rpose of developing muscular strength, endurance and cardio-respiratory endurance. Applications for second and third yea r scholarships are open to all community college students, but acceptance of an AROTC scholar ship requires enrollment at a four-year, degree granting university For more information about scholarships, contact the Enrollment/Scholar ship offi ce r at 303-492-3549. Since AROTC classes at Auraria Campus are taught at Metropolitan State University of Den ver (MSU Denver) students must register using the inter-institutional process which incurs no additional costs. The AROTC classes at CCD use the ARM prefix (MSU Denver uses MILR) For assistance with the inter-institutional regis tration process, contact CCD's Admissions, Reg istration and Records Office at 303-556-2420.

PAGE 42

SBCCOE/Policies / SP/PDF/SP4-30.pdf. In the event of an appeal. the Chief Student Services Officer or designee shall give written notice to the other party (e.g if the accused student appeals, the appeal is shared with the complainant who may also wish to file a response). and then the CSSO or designee will draft a response memorandum (also shared with all parties). All appeals and responses are then forwarded to the appeals officer or committee for initial review to determine if the appeal meets the limited grounds and is timely. The original finding and sanction will stand if the appeal is not timely or substantively eligible, and the decision is final. If the appeal has standing, the documentation is forwarded for consideration. Because the original finding and sanction are presumed to have been decided reasonably and appropriately, the party appealing the decision must specifically cite the error(s) in the original determination on which the appeal is based. The ONLY grounds for appeal are as follows: 1. A material procedural or substantive error occurred that significantly impacted the outcome of the hearing (e.g. substantiated bias, material deviation from established procedures); which must be elq)lained in the written appeal: or 2. To consider new evidence, unavailable during the investigation or hearing that could substantially impact the original finding or sanc tion. A summary of this new evidence and its potential impact must be included in the written appeal, as well as the reasons the new evidence was not availab le during the original proceeding. If the appeals officer or committee determines that a material proce dural or substantive error occurred it may return the complaint to the CSSO or designee with instructions to reconvene to cure the error. In rare cases, where the procedural or substantive error cannot be cured by the CSSO or designee in cases of bias, the appeals officer or committee may order a new hearing be h eld by a different individual acting in the place of the designated CSSO or designee The results ofa reconvened hearing cannot be appealed. The resul ts of a new hearing can be ap pealed, once, on the two applicable grounds for appeals. If the appeals officer or committee determines that new evidence should be considered, it will return the complaint to the CSSO or designee to reconsider in light of the new evidence, only. If the subject matter pertains to discrimination and/or harassment pw-suant to SP 4-31a, the appeals of ficer or committee will return the complaint to the Title IX/EO Coordinator to reconsider in light of the new evidence. only. The reconsideration of the CSSO designee, or Title IX/EO Coordinator is not appealable. The procedures governing the hearing of appeals include the following: All palties should be timely informed of the status of requests for appeal, the status of the appeal consideration, and the results of the appeal decision; Iftlle appeals officer or committee determines there is new evidence or err or in the original proceeding, every oppommity to return the appeal to the CSSO or designee for reconsideration (remand) should be pursued; Appeals are not intended to be full rehearings of the complaint (de novo). In most cases. appeals are confined to a review of the written documentation or record of the original hearing, and pertinent documentation regarding the grounds for appeal; An appeal is not an OPPOltunity for all appeals officer or committee to substitute their judgment for that of the CSSO or designee merely because they disagree witll its finding and/or sanctions. Appeals decisions al'e to be deferential to the original decision making Challges to the findings only wher e there is clear error and a compelling justification to do so. Sanctions imposed are implemented immediately W1less the CSSO or designee stays their implementation in extraordinary circumstances, pending the outcome of the appeal. The appeals officer or committee will render a written decision on the appeal to all parties within seven (7) days from receiving the appeal request. The committee's decision to deny appeal requests is final. E RELEASE OF DISCIPLINARY INFORMATION Disciplinary records are considered education records under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, these records are kept confidential in accordance with this law. Access to any student's disciplinary file shall be governed by provisions ofFERPA, and the Campus Security Act (or "Cl ery Act") as amended. A written waiver signed by the student is required for release of disciplinary records to third parties not othelwise mandated by relevant law. F. STUDENT CONDUCT PROCEDURE ON RECORD Retention and Rev iew With the exception of cases in which the College has federally mall dated reporting requirements, records will be kept according to the Colorado Community College System Records Retention Schedule. G. SITUATIONAL CONSIDERATIONS Immunity for Victims/Survivors of Sexual Misconduct -Sometimes, victims / survivors al'e hesitant to report to campus officials because they fear that they themselves may be charged with policy vio l ations, suc h as underage drinking at the time of the incident. It is in the best interest of this community that as many victims/survivors as possible choose to report to institutional officials. To encourage reporting. Community Col lege of Denver pursues a practice of offering victims / survivors of sexual misconduct limited inlmunity from being charged for conduct violations related to the sexual misconduct incident (palticularly in regard to alcohol and drugs). While violations cannot be complete ly overlooke d the institution will provide educational options rather than punishment in such cases. Students who report sexual assault will not have a formal con duct record for alcohol or drug violations. Good Samaritan -Sometinles students al'e hesitant to offer assistance to others for fear that they may get themselves in troub l e ( for example as student who has been drinking underage might hesitate to help take a sexual misconduct victim / survivor to the Campus Police). Commlmity College of Denver pursues a practice oflimited immunity for students who offer help to others in need. While policy violations cannot be overlooked the institution will provide educational options rather than punishment, to t h ose who offer tlleir assistance to others in need. In these cases a student will not receive a formal conduct record when seeking assistance for another. H.

It is important for students and staff to understand that alcohol abuse inlpairs judgment and the peripheral and central nervous system. Alcohol affects different people in different ways. Some of the characteristics that determine the way alcohol affects peop l e include: Gender Mood Body Weight Type of Alcohol Full /Empty Stomach Speed of Consumption Use of Medication or Other Dmgs For most people, the effects of alcohol are determined by simple volwne. Alcohol Impairment When a person drinks alcohol, it can enter the bloodstreanl as soon as they begin to drink The molecular structure of alcoho l (or ethanol) is small so the alcohol can be absorbed or transferred into the blood through the mouth the walls of the stomach, and the small intestine. The stomach has a relatively s lo w absorption rate; it is the small intes tine that absorbs most of the alcohoL It is important to keep the alcohol in the stomach as long as possible by eating food, which dilutes the alcohol and keeps it from entering the small intestine so quickly Once alcohol gets into the bloodstream it moves through the body and comes into contact with virtually every organ. However some of the highest concentrations, and the highest impact, ru'e caused by the alcoho l that reaches the brain. The body is quite efficient when it comes to dealing \\1ith alcohoL The liver is designed to metabolize the alcohol as it is co n sumed. Enzymes break down the alcohol into harml ess products and then it is excreted. However the liver can only handle so much alcohol at a time. For a person of average weight ruld body type the liver and small intestine can handle alcohol at a rate of about one drink per hour. If a person drinks at a faster rate than one drink per hour, the alcohol stays in the body waiting to be metabolized. If there is more alcohol in the body than can be metabolized the result is increasing levels of intoxication.

They have the freedom to choose the methods of instruc tion, guidance, tutoring, testing and evaluation to achieve these goals. Campus Crime Information The college provides to all prospective students and CCD employees the Campus Security Policies and Procedures and the most recent campus crime statistics. This is part of the Federal Law No.101-542, the Student Right-to-Know, and the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act of 1999 (formerly the Campus Security Act of1990). The Clery Report can be viewed at: http://www.al1ec.edu / for-cam pus-faculty-staff/auraria-campus-police-department/clery-act/ Statement Regarding Registered Sex Offenders Colorado Revised Statutes requires that "eac h institution of post secondary education in the state shall provide a statement to its campus community identifying the name and location at which members of the community may o btain the law enforcement agency information collected pursuant to 19-3-412(6 3), C.R.S. concerning registered sex offenders." Information concerning persons who are required by Colorado law to r egister as sex offenders, including registered sex offenders who are enrolled, employed, or volunteering at CCD may be obtained from the Denver Police Department, 1331 Cheroke e St. (720-913-2000) or the AUl'aria Canlpus Police (303556-3271). CCO Sexual Misconduct Policies Board Policy (BP) 3-120 and System President's Procedure (SP) 4-120 provide that Colorado Community College System shall not unlaw fully discriminate based on sex/gender in its employment conditions or educational programs or activities. Sexual misconduct is a form of sex/ gender discrimination. The CCD community has the right to be free from sexual violence. All members of the CCD community are expected to conduct the mselves in a manner that does not infringe upon the rights of others. Information from College Procedure HR-9 Sexual Misconduct, is provided below and a link to the procedure is available at https://www.cc d.edu / files / hrccdsexualmisconduct2012.pdf. Sexual Misconduct offenses include, but are not limited to: Sexual Harassment Non-Consensual Sexual Contact (or attempts to commit same) Non-Consensual Sexual Intercourse (or attempts to commit same) Sexual Exploitation Sexual Harassment is unwelcome gender-based verbal or physical conduct that is sufficiently severe persistent, or pervasive that it has the effect of unreasonably interfering with denying, or limiting someone tlle ab ility to participate in or benefit from CCD's educational programs and / or activities or work activities and, the unwelcome behavior is based on power differentials (quid pro quo). the creation of a hostile environment, or retaliation. Quid pro quo sexual harassment exists when there a re unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors or other verbal or physi cal conduct of a sexual nature, and, submission to or rejection of such conduct results in adverse educational or employment action ; or affects the terms or conditions of education or employment, or activi ties with the College Hostil e environment in cludes any situation in which there is harassing conduct that is s uffic iently severe, persistent or pervasive that it alters the conditions of employment or limits interferes with. or denies edu cational benefits or opportunities, from both a subjective (tlle alleged victim 's) and an objective (reasona bl e person s) viewpoint. Retaliat ory harassment is any adverse employment or educational action taken against a person because of the person's perceived participation in a complaint or investigation of discrimination or sexual misconduct. Non-consensual sexual contact is any intentional sexual touching, how ever slight, with any object, by any individual upon any individual that is without consent and/or by force Non-consensual sexual intercourse is ,my sexual penetration however slight, with any object, by any individual upon any individual that is without consent and/or by force. Cons ent must be clear, knowing and voluntary. Consent is active, not passive. Silence in and of itself, cannot be interpreted as consent. Consent can be given by words or actions, as long as those words or actions create mutually lmderstandable clear permission regarding willingness to engage in (and the conditions of) sexual activity. Also in order to give effective consent, one must be oflegal age. Further consent to anyone form of sexual activity cannot automatically inlply consent to any other forms of sexual activity. Previous relationships or prior consent cannot imply consent to future sexual acts. Force is the use of physical violence and/or imposing on someone physically to gain sexual access. Force also includes threats. intimidation (implied tlueats), and coercion that overcomes resistance or produces consent. Incapacitation is a state where someone cannot make rational reason ab le decisions because they lack the capacity to give knowing consent. Incapacitation cou ld result from mental disability, sleep, in voluntalY physical restraint, or from the ingestion of rape drugs. Pos session use alld/or distribution of any of these substances, including, but not limited to Rohypnol Ketomine, GHB Burundanga etc. is prohibite d and admirListering one of these drugs to another person is a violation of this procedure. More information on these drugs can be found at http://www.911rape org/. Having sex with someone whom you know to be, or should know to be, incapacitated (mentally or physi cally) is a violation of college procedure HR -9. Sexual exploitation occurs when allyone takes non-consensual or abu sive sexual advantage of another for his/her own adValltage or benefit, or to benefit or advantage anyone other than the one being exploited, and that behavior does not otherwise constitute one of other sexual misconduct offenses. Examples of sexual exploitation include, but are not limite d to, invasion of sell.'lIal privacy non-consensual video or audio-taping of se xual activity or viewing or possessing child or adult pornography at work or on college owned property. CCD can only respond to allegations ofmiscondllct ifit is aware of the mi sconduct. Further.

All courses identified as capstone courses require a grade of C o r better for graduation. Capstone courses must be take n at CCD. Core Curriculum : These courses fulfill lower division general education requirements as de fined and agreed on between the State Board for Community Colleges and Occupational Education and the governing boards of all pub li c fouryear institutions in Colorado Corequisite: When a course has a corequisite. it means that student s are required t o take another course concurrent with (or prio r to) enrollment in the course Knowing the information presented in the corequisite course is conside r ed necessary in order for students to be s u ccessfu l in the course. It i s the stu de n t's obligation to know and meet course corequi sites. These are stated in the course desc r iption section of the CCD Catalog and the Schedule of Classes. Corequisites will be checked at reg istration. The student may be required to file proof of meeting corequisites. Course Number : A three-digit number is as signed to all college courses Courses listed in the 100s are designated for fi 'eshman level; 200s are intended for sophomore level. Courses n u m b ered below 10 0 are developmen t al and generally cannot be used towards degree or cer t i ficate require ments and are not transferable to four-year institutions. Credit Hour. This is the basic unit of aca d emic credi t Generally one credit hour is earned by attending a lecture class for a 50-minute period once a week. for a full semester. In a laboratory course, one-credit hour is granted for two to three 50-minute periods per week in the l aboratory. An associate's degree requires a minimum of 60 c r edits. Credit hom 's in parentheses, ex. (3). are options from which students may choose. They are not included in the t otal credit hours required for the program or p l an of study An average, fulltime student course load is 15 credit hours. Cred i t Hours in Parentheses: For each academ ic prog r am listed in this catalog, credit hours for some classes are in parentheses. These classes are optional and students may choose to take o n e or more to f ulfill the program requirements. Students should always review their choices with their Program Advisor. General Education: General education is the liberal arts compone n t of a baccalau reate de gree that may include lowerand upper-divi sio n co u rses as defined b y each institution. Guaranteed Transfer Courses (Gn: Some of the c l asses students take at CCD are guaran teed to transfer to any public college or univer sity i n the state and co unt toward a four-year degree as though the class was taken at that instituti on. In the Course Description section of the catalog, those Gua r anteed Transfer Courses include a code such as "GT-SC1 which indi cates that the class is guaranteed to transfer as a science credit. Major : The field of academic study in which a student specializes. The selected major will determine which courses are required for a student's program of study. Plan of Study : A Plan of Study consists of at least 4 courses from the same or a related subject area (course prefix) The plan of study will not appear on students' diplomas or transcripts Prefix: Each course has a three-letter code desig nating the instructional department or division For exan1ple, ENG is the prefix for English courses. Prerequisite: When a course has a prerequi site, it means that a student must hav e certain know l edge to be successful in the course. The prior know l edge may be d e monstrated by a test score o r successful co m p l etion of a prior course (ex. must have completed ENG 121 with a grade of C or b etter). Completio n of the p r erequisite is requir ed prior to enrolli ng in the course, and U j D UjF, D F, or I grades are not acce p tab le. It is the student's obligat i o n to know an d meet course prerequisites. These are stated in the course d escription sectio n of the CCD cat alog and the Schedule of Classes. Prerequisites will be checked at registration. The student may be required to file proof of meeting prerequi sites. No te : Students who have taken prer e quisite courses longer than seven years ago m'e stmngly encour aged to take an assessment test over the prerequi s ite material to ensul'e adequate pliol' know l edge to be successful in future courses. The outcome of the assessment test will he l p determine whether the prerequisite cow'se needs to be I'e taken. The assessment test is available in the CCD T estin g Centel: For H e a l t h S c ienc e d e gr ees beca us e o f pro gra m accr editation r e qu i rem ents, students must h av e compl e t e d all s ci ence cou r ses withi n t h e prev i ous seven y e a rs b e for e th e firs t da y of class i n a h e a lth pro g r am. Section Number : A three-digit number or letter combination is assigned to al l college courses. The section number is found immediately fol lowing the course number (ex. ENG 1 2 1-111 = Section 111 of Englis h Composition I). This number is not indicative of the number of sec tions offered at CCD.
