GENERAL INFORMATION 5
GENERAL INFORMATION
The College
The Metropolitan State College of Denver is the largest public four-year college in the United States. The college offers arts and sciences, professional and business courses and programs to a diverse student population. Excellence in teaching and learning is MSCDs primary objective.
The college's mission is to provide high-quality, accessible, enriching education that prepares students for successful careers, postgraduate education and lifelong learning in a multicultural, global, and technological society. The college fulfills its mission by working in partnership with the community at large and by fostering an atmosphere of scholarly inquiry, creative activity and mutual respect within a diverse campus community.
More than thirty years ago, the state legislature created MSCD as Colorado's urban "College of Opportunity." Since then it has occupied an important niche in the state's system of higher education, because, by statute, it was designed to be unique.
MSCD is required to serve adult students. First-time college students who are 20 years of age or older and hold a GED or high school diploma are automatically admitted to MSCD, irrespective of their academic record.
MSCD is required to serve traditional-aged students of all levels of achievement and potential. As a result, the college enrolls a rich mix of recent high school graduates, many with excellent grades and test scores and others with more modest achievement.
MSCD is required to be accessible to all citizens. That is why tuition has been and remains among the lowest in the state.
The colleges role and mission are rooted in a commitment to excellence in teaching and learning. MSCD graduates praise faculty for their attention to teaching and willingness to help students succeed. According to a survey of college and university alumni conducted for the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE), MSCD alumni ranked the college number one in meeting their educational goals. In fact, 99 percent of the colleges graduates said MSCDs programs and curriculum met their goals.
The college awards bachelor of science, bachelor of arts and bachelor of fine arts degrees. Students can choose from 49 majors and 70 minors offered through three schools: Business; Letters, Arts and Sciences; and Professional Studies. Programs range from the traditional disciplines, such as history and biology, to contemporary fields of study, such as Chicano studies and health care management. The college offers several bachelors degree programs unique in Colorado, including aviation management, health care management, land use, meteorology, and surveying and mapping. Students may also design their own degree through the Individualized Degree Program.
Students
As an urban college committed to serving the local community, MSCD attracts students from a diverse mixture of age groups, socioeconomic classes, ethnic backgrounds and lifestyles. The colleges curriculum and philosophy reflect that diversity and enrich the urban experience.
Current enrollment is 17,307. Students range in age from 17 to 70 with a median age of 24. Ethnic minorities make up 24 percent of the students.
About 55 percent of students are enrolled full-time and 80 percent work full-or part-time. Sixteen percent are traditional students, beginning college before age 20, while 84 percent represent nontraditional age groups. Ninety-five percent of students reside in the six counties of the Denver metropolitan area:
Adams 12% Denver 31%
Arapahoe 19% Douglas 5%
Boulder 3% Jefferson 25%
Faculty
MSCD has nearly 400 full-time faculty. Professors are master teachers, recruited and evaluated for their ability to teach and engage students. All classes are taught by academic instructors. As a culturally diverse team of academicians, 34 percent of full-time faculty are women and 20 percent represent ethnic minorities.


6 GENERAL INFORMATION
The MSCD faculty is among the most productive in the state. In 1996, the CCHE reported that each full-time faculty member was responsible for teaching 21.5 credit hours, which is at least 9 credit hours more than the number taught at Colorados two largest universities.
The college also brings real-world education into the classroom by hiring part-time faculty who work in the Denver metropolitan community and use their expertise and experience in the arts, business, communications, law, politics, the sciences and technology in their teaching.
The Campuses
The Metropolitan State College of Denver is located at the Auraria Higher Education Center, a 127-acre campus in downtown Denver at Speer Boulevard and West Colfax Avenue. The Community College of Denver and the University of Colorado at Denver share the facilities with MSCD.
The campus includes more than one million square feet of space for classrooms, laboratories, and offices. Some administrative offices are located in restored Victorian homes in Denver's historic Ninth Street Park located on the Auraria site. The campus also features a child care center, a comprehensive library housing 731,000 volumes, and one of the most unusual student union facilities in the country the historic Bavarian-style Tivoli Brewery Building. Excellent physical fitness facilities include a block-long physical education/events center with a swimming pool, a weight room, game courts, dance studios, and event seating for 3,000.
The Auraria Higher Education Centers proximity to downtown Denver enables students and faculty to use the community as a learning laboratory and to connect classroom theory to the cultural, economic, social, and political practices of the city.


GENERAL INFORMATION 7
The college also has two satellite campus sites operated by the Extended Campus Program. The Met South, located at 5660 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard in Arapahoe County, serves the south, southeast, and southwest metropolitan areas. The Met North, located at 11990 Grant Street in Adams County, serves the north, northeast, and northwest areas. Each site is located 14 miles from the Auraria campus along the 1-25 corridor.
A variety of courses are offered during the evenings and on Saturdays on the Auraria campus and at The Met South and Met North. Twenty-four degree programs can be completed entirely by taking courses scheduled during the evenings and weekends. MSCD offers classes in traditional formats as well as telecourses, online courses and correspondence courses. General information about these programs can be obtained from the Office of Admissions or the Academic Advising Center. The Class Schedule clearly identifies all evening and weekend courses.

14 GENERAL STUDIES
THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Philosophy of the General Studies Program
The Metropolitan State College of Denver seeks to prepare its graduates for a lifetime of learning, which, in our changing and complex society, requires focused expertise (such as that provided by a major area of study) and the ability to communicate with and learn from experts in other fields. Undergraduate education fosters the critical thinking necessary for the exploration of unfamiliar disciplines and for the synthesis of learning and exposes students to the richness and variety of the intellectual universe.
General Studies Information
Students must use a single catalog to meet all degree requirements, including those in the General Studies, major and minor. Some changes in General Studies requirements have been made retroactive. As a consequence, many General Studies requirements and policies described in this Catalog may be followed by students using earlier catalogs.
General Studies Goals
The General Studies Program is designed to help graduates achieve the following competencies:
MSCD students should be able to:
1. Write and speak with clarity;
2. Read and listen critically;
3. Draw conclusions from quantitative data;
4. Recognize faulty reasoning;
5. Organize ideas; and
6. Communicate with experts in other disciplines and learn from them.
MSCD students should:
7. Have an open attitude toward different approaches to problems
8. Have an informed awareness of the principle human achievements in history, arts and letters, society, and science, and
9. Be introduced to the basic methods, knowledge, problems or attitudes characteristic of a field.
Structure of the General Studies Program
The General Studies Program is structured to foster the development of skills and to encourage students to use their mastery of skills to explore knowledge in a variety of disciplines. The General Studies Program provides two levels of experience:
Level ISkills
Level I courses provide students with the basic skills of reading and listening critically, recognizing faulty reasoning, drawing conclusions from quantitative data, organizing ideas, and writing and speaking with clarity.
Level II-Breadth of Knowledge
Level II courses introduce students to the basic methods, knowledge, problems or attitudes characteristic of a field, encourage in students an open attitude toward different approaches to problems, enable students to communicate with experts in other disciplines and learn from them, and cultivate in students an informed awareness of the principle achievements in history, arts and letters, social science, and science. In addition, in Level II courses students will continue to develop their skills in language and mathematics.
Distribution and Credit Requirements
To complete their General Studies Program, students must take approved courses that fulfill the following distribution and credit requirements:

*A transfer course or courses of at least 2 semester hours judged to be similar in skill development and content to a Level I course will satisfy an individual Level l course requirement. Equivalency will be determined by the department offering the Level I course.
**One-hour deviations in the Level II categories may be allowed.
***A student's completed General Studies Program must contain at least 33 semester hours.
Basic Rules:
Only approved courses may be used to satisfy the General Studies requirements. A current listing of these courses is on page of this Catalog, in the General College Requirements brochure and in the Course Descriptions section of this Catalog.
General Studies courses need not be counted toward General Studies requirements. They may be taken as electives or to satisfy requirements in the major or degree program.
Departments or programs may specify, by prefix and number, some General Studies courses in addition to courses required for the major or a professional credential.
Courses taken using the pass-fail option cannot be counted for General Studies.
Note: More details on the General Studies requirements can be found on pages 47-58.


16 ADMISSIONS
ADMISSIONS
Admission Requirements
The college uses two categories for classifying applicants: those who are younger than 20 and those who are 20 or older. Based on the college's modified open admission system, each category has its own admission requirements and procedures.
Students maintain the status of continuing student while absent from the college for less than one year; however, following two full semesters of absence, students should call the Office of Admissions to determine whether an updated application for re-admission will be required. For more information, see Admission of Previously Enrolled Students (page 18).
Application Deadline
Applications complete with all required credentials will be accepted through the first week of classes. However, for the best possible selection of courses, students are advised to apply early.
Applicants Younger Than 20
Applicants who are younger than 20 on September 15 for either the summer semester or the fall semester, or February 15 for the spring semester, will be classified as traditional applicants. They will be considered for admission using the requirements described below.
Freshmen (first-time college students):
The college will admit students who are likely to successfully complete an academic program and who meet state requirements for the college as established by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education (CCHE).
Applicants who do not meet the stated admission requirements will be considered on an individual basis that includes a careful review of all credentials, including letters of recommendation and a personal interview.
Applicants who have not graduated from high school but have received the Colorado General Educational Development (GED) certificate or its equivalent will be accepted. ACT or SAT test results are not required with a GED.
Applicants must request that the following information be mailed directly to the Office of Admissions from the high school or testing agency:
=> ACT or SAT test results
=> high school transcript with GPA and class rank
This information may be submitted at the end of the sixth, seventh, or eighth semester of high school, but no later than four weeks before the expected term of enrollment. An official, final transcript with date of graduation is required no later than the fourth week of the term of enrollment. Students should request the transcript and verify that the high school transcript with date of graduation has been mailed by the high school and has been received by the Office of Admissions.
Applicants who have submitted a complete application by the deadline and who have a 76 index (see chart on page 21) or higher, will be admitted. Students who have lower than a 76 index will be considered on an individual basis.

In place of these credentials, college transfer students should request to have college transcripts sent directly to the Office of Admissions for transfer credit purposes. Degree-seeking applicants are required to have all college and university transcripts on file to receive a complete transfer evaluation.
The ACT or SAT is not required for admission but is highly recommended for advising purposes.
Application Instructions
Applications for admission are considered in the order in which they are received each semester. All credentials received by the college become the property of MSCD and will not be returned to the student. It is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the Office of Admissions of any changes to the application for admission prior to the first day of classes. If changes are not reported to the Office of Admissions, the registration process could be delayed for subsequent semesters. Failure to report academic changes may result in rejection, dismissal, and/or loss of credit. International (visa) applicants should refer to the Admission of International Students section on page 19 in this Catalog.
To apply for admission:
Applications are available from The Metropolitan State College of Denver, Office of Admissions, Campus Box 16, P.O. Box 173362, Denver, CO 80217-3362, 303-556-3058 or online at www.mscd.edu.

High School Concurrent Enrollment Programs
(High School Students Only)
High School Student Education and Enrichment Program
The Student Education and Enrichment (SEE) program is The Metropolitan State College of Denver's High School Concurrent Enrollment Program for college-ready students. SEE is designed to supplement a student's existing education through early participation in college-level classes. This advanced pro-


ADMISSIONS 1
gram should not be interpreted as an alternative to high school completion but is, instead, a cooperative college/high school effort to provide educational enrichment and early college attendance to qualified high school students. SEE students must meet the following criteria:
current enrollment in a Colorado high school as a junior or senior
able to benefit from specialized or accelerated classes
demonstrated ability to do college-level work
To apply for admission, the student must, with approval from the appropriate high school authority, submit an admission application with the required $25 application fee accompanied by the following documents:
recommendation from a high school counselor or administrator describing how the student will benefit from early college attendance
written parental approval
official high school transcript
Upon receipt of these documents, the students record is reviewed and the admission decision is made. However, if additional or supporting information is needed, the student may be required to have an interview with an admissions counselor. The admission decision will be based on the students academic preparation and past performance, recommendation of the high school official, and the students personal motivation and readiness for a traditional college experience.
Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program
The Post-Secondary Enrollment Options Program (PSEOP) is a sponsorship program enacted by state law in 1988 that provides juniors and seniors in high school the opportunity to take college classes for both high school and college credit. The program is intended to provide high school students with an optional learning environment.
This program allows a high school student to register for college classes, in most cases up to six semester credit hours (or two courses). These courses may be used for both high school and college credit. To participate in the program, students must first seek approval from their high school and school district. The district determines the number of credit hours the student may take and makes the financial arrangements. The student is responsible for payment of all tuition and fees by the college payment deadline before the semester begins. Specific deadlines and further information relative to this program and the application process may be obtained by calling the Office of Admissions at 303-556-3058.
Meritus at MSCD (Senior Program)
Individuals 60 or older, who do not wish to earn credit, are invited to attend tuition-free classes of their choice on a space-available basis. The Meritus program is designed to give special encouragement and assistance to retired citizens to continue their personal educational growth in a stimulating and friendly campus setting. For information and to enroll call the Center for Individualized Learning at 303-556-8342, Central Classroom 106.
Admission of International Students
All students who declare a country of citizenship other than the U.S. on their applications for admission must contact the Office of Admissions.
Admission of U.S. permanent residents (or refugees, political parolees, and political asylum cases, etc.) and students on temporary visas other than F-l or Jl:
=> Official transcripts including secondary level education should be submitted four weeks prior to the beginning of the first day of classes of the semester for which admission is sought.
=> Applicants may be required to pass an English proficiency examination.
=> Applicants may be required to register for and complete certain courses during their first two semesters.
Admission of applicants on student (F-l or Jl) visas:
Applicants should submit an International Student Application for Admission and other required documentation. Students who are academically admissible and have met the minimum English proficiency


20 ADMISSIONS
and financial support requirements, will be issued the U.S. Immigration Form 1-20. Questions regarding the admission of students from abroad or permanent residents should be directed to the Office of Admissions.
Transfer Credit Evaluation
A transfer credit evaluation is performed for admitted degree-seeking students after official transcripts are received by the Office of Admissions. Within approximately four weeks, students receive two copies of the transfer credit evaluation, one of which is taken to the major and minor departments for advice on how credits might apply to their programs.
Transfer credits will be accepted under the following guidelines:
Credit must have been earned at an institution of higher education holding full regional accreditation.
Grades earned must be A, B, C or equivalent. Courses with D, F or similar grades will not be accepted in transfer. A summary of transfer credit from each institution will be indicated on the MSCD academic record. Neither transfer course grades nor previous grade point averages will be indicated or affect the MSCD grade point average.
Course content must be similar to those courses offered at MSCD.
A maximum of 64 semester hours from two-year institutions will be applied toward an MSCD degree. A maximum of 90 semester hours of credit will be applied toward an MSCD degree for acceptable work completed at a four-year institution or a combination of two- and four-year institutions.
Transferable courses are accepted at the same level, i.e., lower-division or upper-division, at which they were offered at the previous institution. For example, all transferred community college courses will apply to the MSCD degree as lower-division credit.
Students who have earned an A.A. or A.S. degree will receive junior standing at MSCD, provided all courses included in the degree carry a grade of C or better and, based on the course-by-course evaluation, otherwise meet minimum MSCD transfer credit standards. Students may need to complete additional MSCD lower-division requirements.
Applicants having completed the Colorado community college core curriculum, as certified on their community college transcript, are considered to have satisfied The Metropolitan State College of Denver's minimum General Studies requirements. However, additional specific lower-division courses may be required for certain degree programs.
Once transfer credits are evaluated, the total number of these credits applicable to a degree will not be reduced unless the student repeats already-awarded transfer credit at MSCD, or interrupts MSCD enrollment for three or more consecutive semesters and readmits to the college under more restrictive transfer credit evaluation policies.
In accordance with policies established by the Colorado Commission on Higher Education to address student disputes regarding student transfer between Colorado public institutions, MSCD has instituted procedures for resolving transfer credit disputes. These procedures are available from Transfer Services in the Office of Admissions.
Questions pertaining to transfer credit evaluation should be referred to the Office of Transfer Services, Central Classroom Building, room 108, 303-556-3058.
Preparatory Course Credit Poliey
No preparatory courses are applicable toward an MSCD degree after spring 1993. For details, please see an advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
Transfer Services
The Office of Transfer Services offers assistance to students transferring from other institutions. Specific services include preliminary and/or official transcript evaluation, educational planning, transition to academic departments, and resolution of transfer problems. Transfer counselors are available by appointments and for walk-ins; evening appointments are available. Transfer Services works closely with Transcript Evaluation to provide students information about their transfer credits and how those credits may be applied. Questions pertaining to transfer credit evaluation should be referred to the Office of Transfer Services, Central Classroom Building, Room 103, 303-556-3774.

New Student Orientation
New Student Orientation offers a mandatory orientation program for all first-time college students and transfer students under 20. Transfer students 20 and older, as well as parents and non-degree seeking students, are strongly encouraged to attend orientation sessions. The year-round sessions cater to the specific needs of first-time college students, transfer students, women, and parents of traditional age freshmen. Sessions are scheduled on different days and at various times to accommodate the needs of our diverse commuter populations. Sessions are also offered at the North and South campuses to provide further flexibility. Orientation sessions cover a variety of topics including degree planning, academic concerns, students' rights and responsibilities, student support programs, commuter issues and an opportunity to ask and discuss individual questions. Students are provided with a packet of valuable information which includes a catalog, student handbook, general requirements brochure and critical information from many of the student support programs and services. Orientation is invaluable in laying a solid foundation for students' future academic success. Approximately 4,000 students and parents are served by this program each year. For further information see the Class Schedule or call 303-556-3677 or 303-556-3559.
Reading, Writing and Mathematics Placement Examinations
All first-time college students are required to take a series of three exams before registering for their first-semester classes. The exams measure college entry-level skills in reading, writing and mathematics, and the scores are used to help advisors and students select appropriate courses. For additional information call 303-556-3677.
Academic Advising
The Academic Advising Center exists to support students in achieving their educational goals in an expedient, satisfying manner. The following are among the routine services provided to students in the Center: individualized developmental advising; academic counseling; course planning and scheduling; degree audits; help with decision-making on major/minor selection; and referrals to other offices and departments as appropriate for the resolution of special problems. Students may meet with an advisor by appointment or on a walk-in basis. All first-time college students, transfer students under 20 and students undecided on their majors are required to seek academic advising in the Advising Center. Students who have decided on a major should meet with an advisor in their major department to plan their academic program and receive current materials. For additional information call 303-556-3680.
REGISTRATION
All continuing students in good standing at the college are eligible to register each semester.
Students are responsible for ensuring that there is a correct and up-to-date address and phone number on file with the college. Address changes may be made with the Registrar's Office, through MSCDs Web site, (www.mscd.edu), by writing or faxing (303-556-3999) the address and phone number change to the Registrars Office.
A student may register for classes in several ways. Information on the registration procedure and registration dates is published in the Class Schedule, which is mailed to all continuing and new students.
Concurrent Enrollment
Students who find it necessary to register at MSCD and another college at the same time should check with MSCD advisors concerning the acceptance and application of transfer credits.
Interinstitutional Registration
Students enrolled at MSCD may register for courses at Arapahoe Community College, Community College of Denver and Red Rocks Community College. Courses taken at these institutions in no way alter existing MSCD degree requirements, but may apply toward degree requirements subject to specific approval by MSCD. Students should be aware that courses taken interinstitutionally will be counted as part of the 64 semester hours from community colleges applicable to a MSCD degree. Interinstitutional credits will not satisfy academic residence requirements at MSCD. In the event a conflict arises between the policies/procedures of MSCD and one of the colleges listed above, the most restrictive policy pre-


ENROLLMENT/REGISTRATION 2
vails. Students are advised to confer with department chairs and/or coordinators of academic advising before registering interinstitutionally.
Consortium Registration
Adams State College, Mesa State College and Western State College together with MSCD form a system of state colleges. Each member institution can provide any student in good standing with the materials needed to enroll temporarily in any other member institution without incurring additional matriculation costs. Information concerning tuition is available at the host institution. The process of enrolling as a system student should begin at least one month prior to the beginning of the registration period at the host institution. Information concerning current procedures for enrolling for courses at these other institutions is available from the Registrars Office.
Enrollment Status
The enrollment status of a student in the interinstitutional registration or consortium registration programs is determined by the student's status at the home institution (institution where the student is seeking a degree). Students should ascertain before enrolling at an institution that desired courses will satisfy degree requirements at the home institution.
Course Audit Policy
Students may audit a class with the permission of the instructor and if seating is available. Academic credit is not awarded for an audited course. The cost for auditing a course is based on regular tuition as published in the current Class Schedule. Audit approval forms are available in deans and academic department offices.
Changes in Registration
Enrolled students may adjust schedules by dropping and/or adding classes. See the current Class Schedule for complete information concerning dropping and/or adding classes and the tuition and fee refund schedule.
Students who reduce their course load after the fourth week of classes and before the beginning of the fifth week will receive an "NC" notation for each course they have dropped. A NC/Withdrawal Form must be submitted by the deadline to the Registrar's Office.
Students reducing their course load between the beginning of the fifth and the end of the tenth week of classes during fall and spring semesters may receive an "NC" notation for each course, provided faculty approval is granted. Additional restrictions regarding assigning the "NC" notation may be set by each school, department and/or faculty member for the period between the beginning of the fifth and the end of the tenth week of the semester (or proportional time frame). Students are advised to seek faculty signatures well before the deadline. A NC/Withdrawal Form must be submitted by the deadline to the Registrar's Office. See the sections on grades, notations, course load and class attendance in this Catalog.
Proportional time frames are applied for part-of-term courses, workshops and summer terms. Procedures for adding or dropping a part-of-term course after the course has begun are described in the current Class Schedule.
TUITION AND FEES Tuition Classification
A student is classified as an in-state or out-of-state student for tuition purposes at the time of admission. This classification is based upon information supplied by the student on the application for admission and is made in accordance with the Colorado Tuition Classification Law, CRS S23-7-101 et seq. (1973), as amended. Once determined, a student's tuition classification status remains unchanged unless satisfactory evidence that a change should be made is presented. A Petition for In-State Tuition Classifica-


24 ENROLLMENT/REGISTRATION
tion Form and the evidence requested should be submitted to the Registrars Office if a student believes she or he is entitled to in-state status.
The tuition classification statute requires that in order to qualify for in-state status, a student (or the parents or legal guardian of the student in the case of students under 23 years of age who are not emancipated), must have been domiciled in Colorado for one year or more immediately preceding the first day of the semester for which such classification is sought.
Domicile for tuition purposes requires two inseparable elements: (1) a permanent place of habitation in Colorado and (2) intent to remain in Colorado with no intent to be domiciled elsewhere. Some examples of connections with the state that provide objective evidence of intent are: (1) payment of Colorado state income tax as a Colorado resident, (2) permanent employment in Colorado, (3) ownership of residential real property in Colorado, (4) compliance with laws imposing a mandatory duty on any domiciliary of the state, such as the drivers' license law and the vehicle registration law and (5) registration to vote. Other factors unique to the individual can also be used to demonstrate the requisite intent.
Any questions regarding the tuition classification law should be directed to an admissions officer at the college. In order to qualify for in-state status for a particular semester, the student must prove that domicile began not later than one year prior to the first day of classes for that semester. The dates for qualifying and for submitting petitions are published in the Class Schedule each semester.
Tuition and College Service Fees
The Board of Trustees of The State Colleges in Colorado, the governing board of the college, reserves the right to alter any or all tuition and fees for any semester without notice.
Tuition and college service fees are determined by the trustees shortly before the beginning of each academic year. Information regarding tuition and fees is published in the current Class Schedule. Tuition and fees are payable at the time of registration.
Standard Fees
An application fee is required of all applicants for admission to the college. This fee is nonrefundable and will not be applied to tuition.
Application fee..............................................................$25
International student application fee........................................$40
Matriculation fee............................................................$25
Special fees
Returned check charge........................................................$17
Tuition Adjustments
Please see the Class Schedule for the current semester.
Student Health Insurance
All full-time students* are required to participate in the college-sponsored student health insurance coverage unless proof can be provided that a student has comparable and valid outside health insurance coverage.**
Full-time students are automatically billed for student health insurance on their tuition bill under the insurance heading. Students who have outside insurance coverage are responsible for completing a waiver form by the deadline indicated in each semester's Class Schedule in order to have the insurance charge removed from their tuition bill (deadline changes from semester to semester). Waiver forms will not be accepted after the deadline listed in each semester's Class Schedule. It is the student's responsibility to become familiar with the college's policies and to adhere to the deadlines listed. No refunds will occur after the waiver deadline. Waiver forms and insurance brochures are available at either the Student Health Insurance Office located in the Student Health Center (PL 150) or the Student Accounts Office (CN 110). Waiver forms are also printed in each Class Schedule.
Health insurance waiver forms are valid for only one year. Continuing students must complete a waiver form ANNUALLY prior to each fall semester. Students with a break in academic enrollment, and those who begin classes in the spring or summer, must complete a waiver form by the appropriate deadline (listed in the Class Schedule) for the semester they enroll and every fall semester thereafter.


ENROLLMENT/REGISTRATION 2
Waiver form information will be mailed to the home address of all full-time students prior to the semester of enrollment.
Students who request a waiver form to provide proof of valid outside health insurance must:
Complete the student health insurance waiver form.
Attach a copy of a valid health insurance card in the space provided on the waiver form. Students who have valid outside insurance but have not been issued an insurance card must include the main policy holder's name, the insurance company's name, and the name and phone number of a contact person or the appropriate department at the insurance company that can verify current health insurance coverage.
Submit the waiver form by the deadline indicated in each semester's Class Schedule (deadline changes from semester to semester).
Note: Students who have not been issued a health insurance card by their insurance company are required to pay for the student health insurance when they pay their tuition and fees. Once outside health coverage is verified, the insurance fee will be refunded to the student. The time it takes to verify coverage varies, depending on processing demands and insurance carrier responsiveness.
All covered services at the Student Health Center are paid at 100 percent with no payment at the time of service, no deductible and no need for claim forms. The pre-existing condition exclusion clause is waived for services performed. Please see the current Student Health Insurance Brochure for a summary of the plan benefits, requirements and exclusions. Brochures can be obtained at the Student Health Center.
Dependents of a student participating in the student health insurance program are also eligible for optional insurance coverage. Adult dependents (18 and up) may use the Student Health Center (SHC) after they pay the semesterly SHC fee. Dependents 17 years old or younger are not eligible for services at the SHC. Please call the insurance office for information regarding pediatric care. In addition, students enrolled during the spring semester are given the option of purchasing summer health insurance without attending classes, provided that payment is received by the deadline listed in the summer Class Schedule. Graduating students have the option to purchase from one to six months of continuing coverage. Students with questions regarding student health insurance should contact the Student Insurance Office.
*For insurance purposes, at least 10 credit hours is considered full-time for fall and spring semesters, and eight credit hours is considered full-time during the summer semester.
**Individual insurance plans that are not required to meet state and federal benefit mandates are not considered comparable and consequently will not be considered proof of comparable coverage. Effective August 1, 1998, the "Colorado Resident Discount Program" will NOT be accepted as proof of comparable outside health insurance coverage for waiver purposes. This special program is not considered health insurance and was not designed by the state legislature for this purpose.
Student Health Insurance
Voluntary Program for Part-Time Students
Based on the mandatory insurance requirement which the college has adopted, the Student Insurance Carrier has permitted the college to offer the following Voluntary Health Insurance Program to part-time students. This program is exclusively for part-time students taking 6-9 credit hours in the fall and/or spring semester(s) and 6-7 credit hours during the summer semester. Students taking more or less credit hours than indicated above are NOT eligible for this voluntary program.
The Voluntary Plan has the same deadlines (as listed in the Class Schedule), plan design, cost and benefit levels as does the mandatory insurance plan referenced in the previous section. Part-time students interested in the voluntary option should contact the Student Insurance Office at 303-556-3873 for application details.
Student Dental Insurance
Voluntary Program for all Students
Voluntary Dental Insurance is available to all students taking one credit hour or more. Information and application forms can be obtained at the Student Insurance Office in the Student Health Center (PL 150).


26 FINANCIAL AID
FINANCIAL AID
The MSCD financial aid program provides assistance and advice to students who would be unable to pursue their education at the college without such help. Scholarships, grants, loans and part-time employment are available singly or in various combinations to meet the difference between what the student and the students family could reasonably be expected to provide and the expected cost of attending MSCD.
Estimated Expenses
The 1998-99 academic year expenses were as follows:
Resident Nonresident
Tuition and Fees $3,200 . $8,350
Room and Board 7,320 . 7,320
Books and Supplies . 695 . 695
Transportation 1,170 . 1,170
Miscellaneous 1,330 . 1,330
$13,715 .. $18,865
Tuition and fees are set by The State Colleges in Colorado and are subject to change without notice. All students are placed on a single-person budget. Additional allowances may be made for students with day-care costs for dependent children and for expenses related to disabilities not paid by another agency (P.L. 99-498).
Eligibility and Need
To qualify for financial aid, a student must be a U.S. citizen or eligible noncitizen; be registered with Selective Service (if required); have financial need; be degree-, licensure-, or certificate-seeking; be making satisfactory academic progress; and not be in default on a federal education loan or owe a repayment on a federal grant.
Application Procedures
Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year to determine financial aid eligibility. Entering college freshmen should obtain application forms from their high schools or from MSCDs Office of Financial Aid. Some returning students will receive a Renewal FAFSA directly from the federal government and that should be completed and mailed in place of the new FAFSA. For quicker processing, we strongly recommend that returning, transferring and entering students complete their FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA on the Web at: www.fafsa.ed.gov.
Students should complete and submit the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA to the federal processor as early as possible (after January 1st), preferable no later than mid-February, and submit all requested documents to the MSCD Office of Financial Aid by April 12th.
Detailed information concerning application procedures is provided in the Financial Aid Handbook and Scholarship Guide available in the MSCD Office of Financial Aid.
Financial Aid Programs
The amount of funds made available to students depends on the maximum award allowed by regulation of each program, the student's established financial need, duration of the students enrollment, and funds allocated to the college by the state and federal governments.
Grants
Grants are gift money from the federal or state government and do not have to be repaid.
Federal Pell Grants are federal funds and awarded to undergraduate students who have not yet received a bachelor's degree and who are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. The amount of the award is based on each student's financial eligibility and the number of hours for which the student is enrolled. The amount of Federal Pell grant awards for the 1999-00 academic year will range from $400 to $3,125 for those students who qualify. Full-time, half-time, or less than half-time students may qualify for a Federal Pell Grant.


FINANCIAL AID 27
Federal Supplemental Edueational Opportunity Grants (FSEOG) are federal funds awarded to undergraduate students who have not yet received a bachelor's degree and are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens. This grant is awarded to students who demonstrate exceptional need. The amount of FSEOG awards range from $100 to $600 per fall and spring semesters.
Colorado State Grants (CSG) are state funds awarded to Colorado residents with demonstrated financial need. Eligible students have no prior bachelor's degree, are U.S. citizens or eligible non-citizens, and are enrolled full- or part-time (at least six credit hours for the fall and spring semesters) at MSCD. The amount of the CSG award ranges from $50 to $600 per fall and spring semesters.
Colorado Student Incentive Grants (CSIG) are a combination of federal and state funds awarded by the same criteria as CSG.
Scholarships
Students must be enrolled at least half-time, be degree-, certificate- or licensure-seeking, be making satisfactory academic progress, and not be in default on a federal education loan or owe a repayment on a federal grant to receive a scholarship.
Presidential Scholarships: These scholarships include four-year scholarships for entering high school students and two-year scholarships for transfer students. This scholarship covers up to the cost of tuition and mandatory fees per semester for up to 15 credits.
Colorado Scholars Awards: Scholarships of up to $500 per semester, not exceeding the cost of resident tuition and mandatory fees per academic year, are available through the academic departments. Recipients must be Colorado residents. Interested students should contact their departments for applications.
Athletic Scholarships: MSCD has a limited number of athletic scholarships. Applications and additional information are available from the MSCD Intercollegiate Athletics Office.
Private Scholarships: Students should refer to the MSCD Financial Aid Handbook and Scholarship Guide for information regarding scholarships and the free online scholarship search.
Receipt of a scholarship may affect a student's financial aid award because students receiving federal and/or state aid are limited in the maximum amount of aid which can be received. A student whose full need has been met by other types of financial aid prior to receipt of a scholarship will have that aid reduced by the amount of the scholarship. If the student's full eligibility has not been met, the scholarship will be allowed to satisfy the unmet need. Each student's situation is treated individually. All scholarships are based on the student's continued eligibility and available funding.
Loans
Federal Perkins Loans are long-term federal loans that are awarded based on the student's need and MSCD's available funds. Federal Perkins Loan can range from $100 to $1,000 per semester. Repayment of the loan begins nine months after the student graduates or ceases to be enrolled in at least six credit hours each semester. The interest rate is 5 percent and interest begins to accrue at repayment. All first-time borrowers at MSCD are required to attend a Perkins Loan Entrance Interview before loan funds can be released to them.
Federal Family Education Loans (FFEL) include Federal Stafford Loans, unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans, which help students and/or their parents to borrow funds to help meet educational expenses. To borrow these funds, students and/or their parents must complete and submit, in addition to the FAFSA, a separate lender application to the MSCD Office of Financial Aid. Loan applications may be obtained from the Office of Financial Aid or the lender of the student's choice. Students must be enrolled at least six credit hours each semester and be degree-, certificate- or licensure-seeking. Interest rates vary depending on the type of loan and the date the student borrows the first Federal Family Education Loan. For further information on interest rates, check with the MSCD Office of Financial Aid or the lender. First time borrowers at MSCD are required to attend a Loan Entrance Interview before loans funds can be released to them.
Federal Stafford Loans: Eligibility for the Federal Stafford Loan is based on the student's need as determined by the MSCD Office of Financial Aid. The annual loan limits are $2,625 for freshmen, $3,500 for sophomores and $5,500 for all other undergraduates. Interest does not begin to accrue until


28 FINANCIAL AID
six months after the student graduates or ceases to be enrolled in school at least half-time (six credit hours per semester).
Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans: These loans have many of the same terms and conditions as the Federal Stafford Loan. The main difference is that the students are responsible for the interest that accrues while they are in school and during the six-month grace period after they graduate or cease to be enrolled in at least six credit hours. Students who do not qualify for a Federal Stafford Loan, based on need, may qualify for the unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan. Contact the MSCD Office of Financial Aid concerning annual loan limits.
Federal PLUS Loans: These loans are available to parents of dependent students. Applications are available from the MSCD Office of Financial Aid or from lenders that participate in the program. Applications must first be submitted to the Office of Financial Aid for processing. At MSCD, parents of dependent students may borrow up to the cost of education minus the amount of financial aid received by the student from other sources each year.
Please refer to the MSCD Financial Aid Handbook and Scholarship Guide for more detailed information regarding loans.
College Work-Study
The State of Colorado, the federal government and MSCD provide part-time employment programs for students. The maximum work-study award is $2,000 per semester. The maximum hours a student may work is 30 hours per week while classes are in session and 40 hours per week between semesters. Students must be enrolled in at least six credit hours per semester to receive a work-study award. The majority of all work-study awards are need-based, however, there are a limited number of positions offered directly through various departments/offices on campus that are no-need awards.
The Financial Aid Package
Once student eligibility is determined, an aid package is developed based on the availability of funds and the eligibility of the applicant. To facilitate financial aid packaging requirements, applicants must obtain all requested information and forms from designated sources and submit them to the MSCD Office of Financial Aid before the established deadline.
Award Notification
After the Office of Financial Aid has determined the type and amount of aid for which a student qualifies (aid package), the student is mailed an Award Notification. The Award Notification and enclosed information stipulate the conditions of each award.
Disbursement Procedures:
Awards are based on full-time enrollment. If a student is enrolled for less than 12 credit hours each semester, the award may be reduced/prorated. The final award adjustment occurs on census date (about the 10th day of school each semester).
Grants, Scholarships and Student Loans: All financial aid awards (with the exception of out-of-state loan checks, consortium checks and some scholarship funds) are disbursed into the student's account. The Business Office deducts any outstanding balance owed, including current tuition and fees, and issues a check for the remaining funds. This check is either mailed to the student or the student can pick it up at the Cashiers Office. This check can be used to purchase books and pay other educationally related expenses.
Parent Loans: Federal PLUS checks are mailed from lenders to MSCD's Office of Financial Aid. Eligibility is verified and then the check is mailed to the parent borrower.
Work Study: Work-study earnings are paid bi-weekly and are treated as wages earned. Outstanding balances owed to MSCD are not deducted from these earnings; however, students are strongly advised to pay any outstanding balance as soon as a work-study check is received.
Please refer to the MSCD Financial Aid Handbook and Scholarship Guide for information regarding pro-ration of aid disbursements.


FINANCIAL AID 2
Repayment Policy
Students who receive financial aid and withdraw from MSCD prior to completion of a term may be required to repay a portion of financial aid and scholarships.

International Baccalaureate
MSCD recognizes the greater potential for success of international baccalaureate students. Accordingly, academic departments may award credit for demonstrated proficiency on a case-by-case basis. Students who have international baccalaureate results at the higher level may have an official transcript sent directly to the Office of Admissions for consideration for college credit.
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
CLEP consists of two series of examinations: the general examinations and the subject examinations. They are designed to evaluate nonaccredited college-level learning in order to award credit for successful demonstration of this knowledge.
The general examination series includes five separate examinations covering the areas of English composition, humanities, natural sciences, mathematics and social science/history. Based on the results of these examinations, the college may award up to a maximum of 24 semester hours of credit in the freshman General Studies requirement areas. Thus, the successful student may test out of many of the traditional courses required during the freshman year. MSCD does not allow CLEP credit for ENG 1020, the Freshman Composition: Analysis, Research and Documentation course.


42 ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTIONS
The subject examination series consists of more than 45 examinations that apply to specific college courses. MSCD allows credit for some of these examinations. Thirty (30) semester hours of credit also may be awarded under this series, making a total of 54 semester hours of credit obtainable under a combination of the two series of examinations.
Credit obtained under CLEP at another institution will be re-evaluated according to MSCD CLEP policies.
Contact the coordinator at 303-556-3677 for complete information about this program before registering to take any of these exams.
Departmental Course Examinations
In special cases, a department may grant students credit toward graduation for college courses in which they request and pass special college examinations. Under this provision, a maximum of 30 semester hours of credit may be awarded by the college. A fee of $15 per semester credit hour will be charged.
Examinations for credit must be based on work equivalent to a regular course offered by the college (omnibus-numbered courses are excluded). The credit granted will be for the corresponding course, provided the student has no previous collegiate enrollment for a similar course and the credit is applicable toward the student's graduation requirements. Evidence of work justifying an examination for credit must be presented to the department chair no later than the third week of classes in a semester. Permission for such examination must be secured in advance from the appropriate dean upon recommendation of the department chair.
No application for credit by examination will be approved for a student who is not currently enrolled in good standing in a degree-seeking curriculum in the college. Credit by examination will not be approved for a student who is within 12 classroom semester hours of completing degree requirements. No credit by examination can be obtained for a course in which a student has been officially enrolled at MSCD or at another institution, whether or not the course has been completed and a grade awarded. Credit by examination cannot be obtained for college courses attended as a listener, visitor or auditor.
If a student has completed a more advanced course than the course for which examination credit is desired, permission to take the exam will be granted if approved by the appropriate department chair and dean. If a student has already completed a sequence of courses, no examination credit can be given for courses lower in number than the highest-numbered course taken by the student. If a student has registered for a higher-numbered course in a sequence, the exam for the lower-numbered course must be completed within the first three weeks of the semester. Exceptions must be appealed to the Board of Academic Standards Exceptions following endorsement of the department chair or dean. Examinations cannot be taken to raise grades, to remove failures or to remove NC," "SP" or "I" notations. Credit by examination is not applicable toward academic residence requirements.
Examination for credit will be taken at a time specified by the department after the special examination fee has been paid. No examination for credit in a college course may be repeated. A grade equivalent to "A" or "B" must be attained on the examination in order to receive credit, but credit so earned for the course will be recorded without grade reference on the student's permanent record. Credits in courses for which credit is earned by examination are not considered in computing college grade point averages. Credit by examination will be posted after a student has completed 8 semester hours of credit at MSCD and after an evaluation of all possible transfer credits has been completed.
Portfolio Assessment
Students may apply for credit for college-level learning gained through experience by preparing and submitting a prior learning portfolio. Credit is awarded on the basis of a careful assessment of the prior learning portfolio by faculty in the department from which credit is sought. Portfolio assessment is available in many, but not all, academic departments.
The portfolio is developed with the assistance of the Center for Individualized Learning, Central Classroom 106, 303-556-8342. Portfolio assessment may be used to apply for credit for specific courses listed in the Catalog; credit is not available for courses which are considered omnibus courses. Applicants for credit through portfolio assessment will generally be required to take EDS 2680-1, The Portfolio Development Workshop.


ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTIONS 4
A fee of one-half the part-time student tuition is charged for credit awarded through portfolio assessment; $40 of the total fee is due prior to the assessment of the portfolio by faculty. The remainder of the fee is due if and when credit is awarded. Policies which govern credit for prior learning options apply to credit awarded through the portfolio process.
Contact the Center for Individualized Learning for assistance and further information at 303-556-8342, Central Classroom 106. Information sessions about portfolio assessment and other credit for prior learning options are held on a regular basis by the Center for Individualized Learning.
Credit for Military Training and Other Training Programs
Military training and other training programs that have been assessed for college credit by the American Council on Education will be evaluated by the Office of Admissions for transfer credit at MSCD. For formal military training, copies of training certificates and a copy of the DD-214 should be submitted to the Office of Admissions. For other training, official ACE transcripts should be submitted. Credit limit is 30 semester hours.
Cooperative Education
The Cooperative Education Internship Center places students in work experiences related to their academic major. The purpose of the internships is to integrate academic training with actual work experience. This combination allows students to make realistic career decisions, gain valuable work experience, obtain recommendations for graduate school and earn money to help defray college expenses.
Students work in large corporations, small businesses, government and nonprofit agencies throughout the metropolitan area. Most co-op students are paid by their employers, but in those professional fields where co-op salaries are not available, volunteer internship placements are offered to help students gain essential work experience.
Co-op internship placements are available in most academic majors and minors. Students must complete 30 semester hours of college coursework with a minimum 2.50 GPA and have a declared major to be eligible for registration with co-op. No fees are charged to the student or employer for participation in the program, and each student's interests and job requirements are discussed individually with a professional coordinator.
Students may choose from three different work schedules based on the academic calendar. The alternating plan provides full-time periods of work every other semester with intervening semesters spent in full-time study. The parallel schedule places students in a job while they simultaneously attend school. These positions are usually part-time. The short term/summer plan allows students to elect a work experience that lasts for no more than one semester.
The college awards academic credit for supervised cooperative education placements. Students must complete a credit application, available from the co-op office, and this application must be approved by a faculty member from the department in which credit is to be granted. No more than 15 semester hours of cooperative education credit will be applied toward MSCD degree requirements. Credit earned for the co-op education work experiences are not applicable toward General Studies requirements. Additional departmental restrictions may apply to certain majors.
Service-Learning
The Service-Learning Program combines classroom experience with service to the metropolitan community. Participating students receive credit for appropriate public service, which is beneficial to the community and expands student horizons in intellectually and personally meaningful ways.
Emerging from a wide variety of disciplines, service-learning courses are structured by faculty to weave service into community-based and government agencies, with classroom reflection and analysis of the learning offered through these experiences. The courses are also designed to address real needs in our multicultural world, such as homelessness, at-risk youth, domestic violence, the environment, culture and the arts, and mental illness. Agencies that have provided service opportunities include Fort Logan Mental Health Center, the Denver Commission on Aging, Big Sisters, the Colorado Historical Society, the Rape Assistance and Awareness Program, and numerous elementary and high schools, senior centers, and nursing homes.


44 SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
Service-learning credit is available in most academic majors and minors. Prerequisites and other requirements vary with each department. To learn how to participate in this program, including discussions of placement options, students should contact or visit the Service-Learning Program office to schedule an interview.

GENERAL STUDIES
THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Philosophy of the General Studies Program
The Metropolitan State College of Denver seeks to prepare its graduates for a lifetime of learning, which, in our changing and complex society, requires focused expertise (such as that provided by a major area of study) and the ability to communicate with and learn from experts in other fields. Undergraduate education fosters the critical thinking necessary for the exploration of unfamiliar disciplines and for the synthesis of learning, and exposes students to the richness and variety of the intellectual universe.
General Studies Information
Students must use a single catalog to meet all degree requirements, including those in the General Studies, major and minor. Some changes in General Studies requirements have been made retroactive. As a consequence, many General Studies requirements and policies described in this Catalog may be followed by students using earlier catalogs.
General Studies Goals
The General Studies Program is designed to help graduates achieve the following competencies:
MSCD students should be able to:
1. Write and speak with clarity;
2. Read and listen critically;
3. Draw conclusions from quantitative data;
4. Recognize faulty reasoning;
5. Organize ideas; and
6. Communicate with experts in other disciplines and learn from them.
MSCD students should:
7. Have an open attitude toward different approaches to problems;
8. Have an informed awareness of the principle human achievements in history, arts and letters, society, and science; and
9. Be introduced to the basic methods, knowledge, problems or attitudes characteristic of a field.
Structure of the General Studies Program
The General Studies Program is structured to foster the development of skills and to encourage students to use their mastery of skills to explore knowledge in a variety of disciplines. The General Studies Program provides two levels of experience:
Level ISkills
Level I courses provide students with the basic skills of reading and listening critically, recognizing faulty reasoning, drawing conclusions from quantitative data, organizing ideas, and writing and speaking with clarity.
Level II-Breadth of Knowledge
Level II courses introduce students to the basic methods, knowledge, problems or attitudes characteristic of a field, encourage in students an open attitude toward different approaches to problems, enable students to communicate with experts in other disciplines and learn from them, and cultivate in students an informed awareness of the principle achievements in history, arts and letters, social science, and science. In addition, in Level II courses students will continue to develop their skills in language and mathematics.
Distribution and Credit Requirements
To complete their General Studies Program, students must take approved courses that fulfill the following distribution and credit requirements:

Assessment Examinations and Other Activities
In their senior year, students may be required to participate in an assessment of their general education. The faculty has determined educational goals or outcomes that it wants graduates to achieve. A copy of those goals and the methods by which their achievements are measured can be obtained from the department offices.
ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Semester Hours Credit
Course credit is based on units designed as semester hours. One semester hour or one base contact hour equals a minimum of 750 minutes; this translates to a minimum of 15, 50-minute class hours per semester. Time required for class preparation is not a consideration in the calculation of course credit. A three-credit hour course will require six to nine hours of work each week outside of class. Omnibus courses involving laboratory work give one semester hour of credit for each two, three or four hours of scheduled work in the laboratory during a week. Internships require a minimum of 2,250 minutes for each hour of credit.
Course Load
The average course load per 16-week semester is 15 or 16 semester hours. Students who are academically strong may take up to 18 semester hours during fall and spring semesters and up to 12 semester hours during the summer semester. During fall and spring semesters, students with cumulative MSCD grade point averages (GPAs) of 3.25 or higher may take 19 or 20 semester hours and those students with GPAs of 3.50 or higher may take 21 semester hours for fall and spring semester or 14 semester hours for the summer semester. Students must have completed at least 15 semester hours at MSCD. Authorization for overloads for students without these qualifications must be obtained from the student's major department chair and appropriate dean. Forms are available in the department or deans offices.
Student Classification
Students are classified according to the number of semester hours of credit earned: freshmen fewer than 30; sophomores 30 or more, but fewer than 60; juniors 60 or more, but fewer than 90; seniors 90 or more.
Selection of Catalog for Requirements
Students must use a single MSCD catalog to meet all their degree requirements, including the General Studies, major and minor requirements. Students must select a Catalog in effect while they are enrolled


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
at MSCD unless they are transferring from a regionally accredited Colorado community college, provided that the Catalog contains their complete program of study. Students not enrolling for three consecutive semesters or more are governed by the Catalog in effect upon their return. For effective dates of Catalogs, students should consult their academic advisors. All degree programs must adhere to overriding current policies at MSCD.
Students transferring from a regionally accredited Colorado community college may complete degree requirements using an MSCD Catalog in effect while enrolled at the community college, subject to the following conditions:
The Catalog selected does not predate the current catalog by more than three years.
The Catalog selected may have been in use at any time from the time the student was continually enrolled* at a regionally accredited Colorado community college to the semester for which the student is enrolling in MSCD.
*Continuous enrollment is defined as not interrupting enrollment for three or more consecutive semesters (one calendar year); summer is counted as a semester. Continuous enrollment must be maintained from the period of the designated MSCD Catalog to the point of MSCD degree completion.
Declaring a Major
Applicants to The Metropolitan State College of Denver may indicate their intended major on the MSCD Application for Admission. Non-degree-seeking students who wish to declare a major must first change to degree-seeking status by completing a Change of Status form with the Registrar's Office.
Changing a Major
Degree-seeking students who wish to change a major must complete a Declaration/Change of Major form, which is available from the major department or from the Academic Advising Center.
Graduation
Degree-seeking students formally declare their degree plan by filing an Application for Graduation with the Office of the Registrar by the date stipulated in the Class Schedule. The Application for Graduation should be submitted to the Registrar's Office as early as possible but no later than the appropriate deadline stated in the Class Schedule. Students should complete their Application for Graduation in consultation with a department advisor.
Diplomas and Commencement
Students who have met all requirements for graduation are granted diplomas at the end of the semester for which they are degree candidates. Completion of two majors does not result in two degrees or diplomas. A formal commencement ceremony is held at the end of the spring and fall semesters. For commencement information, call 303-556-6226.
Transcripts of Records
An official transcript is a certified copy of a student's permanent academic record. Except for faxed transcripts, there is no charge. Transcripts will be released by the Registrar's Office upon formal written request by the student. Transcripts will also be issued to firms and employers if written authorization is received from the student. Requests should include the student's full legal name as recorded while attending MSCD, student identification number, last term of attendance, number of copies desired, and to whom and where transcripts are to be sent. Transcripts may be withheld because of indebtedness to the college or for other appropriate reasons. Transcripts from other institutions that are on file in the Registrar's Office will be issued upon signed request by the student. A charge of $5 per request is assessed for this service. Students from other institutions taking MSCD courses under the state college system or interinstitutional registration programs must request transcripts from their home institution.
Honors and Awards
The college annually recognizes students who show outstanding leadership and service to the college and community, excellence in scholastic achievement, and outstanding personal character and integrity. Recognition of students includes:


60 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
The President's Award (one senior); the Special Service Award for Academic Affairs (one senior) and for Student Services (one senior); Outstanding Student Awards (seniors from each school); Who's Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges (seniors); American Association of University Women (AAUW) Award (senior woman). Other awards include Special Service Award for Exceptionally Challenged Students, Student Government Assembly Award, Charles W. Fisher Award and the Colorado Engineering Council Award.
Information and applications for these awards are available in Central Classroom Building, room 313. Awards are presented at the annual banquet the night before graduation.
In addition to annual awards, students with outstanding academic achievements are recognized by being named on the college's Honor Lists. The Presidents Honor List carries the names of students who, at the time of computation, have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.85 or higher. The Vice President's Honor List carries the names of students who, at the time of computation, have achieved a cumulative GPA of between 3.50 and 3.84, inclusively. Computation will occur initially when the student has completed between 30 and 60 hours at MSCD, then again between 60 and 90 hours, and finally after more than 90 hours. Posting of the award occurs after the student receives their semester grade report. Questions should be directed to the Office of Academic Affairs at 303-556-3907.
Graduation honors are awarded to students who have demonstrated superior academic ability in their baccalaureate degree while attending MSCD. Honors designations are determined according to the following criteria:
Summa Cum Laude Top five percent of graduates within each school with cumulative MSCD
GPA of no less than 3.65.
Magna Cum Laude Next five percent of graduates within each school with cumulative
MSCD GPA of no less than 3.65.
Cum Laude Next five percent of graduates within each school with cumulative
MSCD GPA of no less than 3.65.
To determine each honors category, GPAs for the previous spring semester graduates are arrayed in rank order. This rank ordering is then used to determine the honors recipients among the following summer, fall and spring graduates.
To qualify for graduation honor recognition, a student must have completed a minimum of 50 semester hours of classroom credit at MSCD prior to the term of graduation.
Courses completed during the term of graduation and transfer credits are not considered w hen determining honors.
Honors designations are added to the student's official academic record; no other notification will be sent. For additional information regarding graduation honors, contact the Office of Academic Affairs at 303-556-3907.
Grades and Notations
Grades
Alphabetical grades and status symbols are as follows:
A Superior..........................4 quality points per semester hour attempted
B Above Average ....................3 quality points per semester hour attempted
C Average...........................2 quality points per semester hour attempted
D Below Average but Passing.........1 quality point per semester hour attempted
F Failure...........................0 quality points per semester hour attempted
Notations
AP - Advanced Placement
CC - Continuing Correspondence Course
CL - CLEP
EX - Credit by Exam


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 6
I- Incomplete
NC No Credit
NR Grade Not Reported. Student must see faculty for an explanation or assignment of grade. Courses taken through interinstitutional registration are normally assigned the "NR" notation until grades are received and posted to the academic record.
P - Pass
PL - Portfolio Assessment
PP - PEP Exam
S Satisfactory (limited to student teaching and HPS/LES 4890 internships)
SA Study Abroad credit SN Study Abroad no credit
The I notation may be assigned when a student was unable to take the final examination and/or did not complete all the out-of-class assignments due to unusual circumstances (such as hospitalization). Incomplete work denoted by the Incomplete I notation must be completed within one calendar year or earlier, at the discretion of the faculty member. If the incomplete work is not completed within one calendar year, the I notation will change to an F. Registering in a subsequent semester for a course in which an I has been received will not remove the I notation. The I notation may not be awarded in a self-paced course. The grade of F does not count as earned credit towards a degree.
The NC notation is not a grade. It may indicate withdrawal from the course or course repetition. The NC notation may also be used in self-paced courses to indicate that the student and/or the faculty have decided to extend the student's exposure to the course to increase the student's proficiency. To earn credit, the student must re-register for and pay for the course in a subsequent term.
The following minimal requirements are required throughout the college and are a part of all school, departmental or individual faculty policies:
The NC notation is available to students in all instances through the fourth week of classes for fall and spring terms.
Students reducing their course load between the beginning of the fifth and the end of the tenth week of classes during fall and spring semesters may receive an NC notation for each course, provided faculty approval is granted.
Additional restrictions regarding assigning the NC notation may be set by each school, department, and/or faculty member for the period between the beginning of the fifth and the end of the tenth week of the semester (or proportional time frame).
Student requests for an NC notation in a given course will not be granted after the tenth week of the fall and spring semesters. The I notation may be used during this period, provided the conditions specified above apply.
Proportional time frames are applied for part-of-term courses, weekend courses, workshops, and summer terms.
A written policy statement describing the use of the NC notation will be given to each student for each class in which the student enrolls.
Students are expected to attend all sessions of courses for which they are registered. Each instructor determines when a student's absences have reached a point at which they jeopardize the student's success in a course. When absences become excessive, the student may receive a failing grade for the course.
Quality Points
The number of quality points awarded for a course is determined by multiplying the number of semester hours for that course by the quality point value of the grade received. The cumulative GPA is calculated by dividing the total by the number of semester hours attempted.


62 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
To be eligible for a degree, a candidate must have a minimum number of quality points equal to twice the number of semester hours attempted in addition to meeting other prescribed requirements. The following notations have no effect on the GPA: AP, CC, CL, EX, I, NC, NR, P, PL, PP, S, SA, SN.
Pass-Fail Option
The pass-fail option encourages students to broaden their educational experience by taking courses outside their major and minor fields. The pass notation has no effect on the GPA; the fail notation is equivalent to the grade of "F."
Students who have completed at least one MSCD course with at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA may choose to be evaluated for a certain course on a pass-fail basis rather than by letter grade. The pass-fail option may be used for general elective credit only. Major, minor, General Studies and other courses required for a degree or for teacher licensure, may not be taken on a pass-fail basis. Self-paced courses may not be taken under the pass-fail option. Maximum graduation credit for these ungraded courses is 18 semester hours, earned in no more than six courses, limited to one course per semester or module.
Students must declare interest in the pass-fail option no later than the last day to add classes (during the first 15 percent of the total time frame of the semester) for a particular semester or module by contacting the Registrar's Office. The instructor will assign and record the pass-fail grade on a final grade list that identifies students electing and eligible for pass-fail grading. Students who request the option who are later declared ineligible will receive notification from the Registrar's Office during the semester. They will be assigned a regular letter grade in the course. Once approved, the request for the pass-fail option is irrevocable.
Some institutions do not accept credits for courses in which a pass notation is given. Therefore, students who plan to transfer or take graduate work should determine whether the institution of their choice will accept the credit before registering for courses under the pass-fail option.
Repeated Courses (Last Grade Stands)
A student may repeat any course taken at MSCD regardless of the original grade earned. By doing so, only the credit and the grade for the latest attempt at the course will remain on the students MSCD academic record. The grade for the prior attempt(s) will be changed to the NC notation. The courses must carry the same title, course number and semester hours. To effect such a change, the student must reregister and pay tuition for the course in question, complete the course with a letter grade and complete the necessary form in the Registrar's Office indicating that the course has been repeated. Otherwise, the grade change will be made administratively when detected. Credit duplication involving transfer, interinstitutional or state college system courses may result in transfer credit being disallowed. A failing course grade assigned as a result of academic dishonesty is considered a permanent "F" and is not subject to this policy. A student may not repeat a course after the award of a MSCD degree to make use of this policy.
Student Grade Appeal Procedure
If students have reason to question the validity of a grade received in a course, they must make their request for a change before the end of the second week of the semester following the completion of the course (the following fall semester in the case of the spring semester). The Grade Appeal Guidelines can be obtained from the students' respective deans. It is the responsibility of the student to initiate a grade appeal within the time limit, and to follow the procedures specified for grade appeals in the Student Rights and Responsibilities section of the current Student Handbook. The handbook may be obtained from the Office of Student Services. All decisions of the Grade Appeal Committee will be reviewed by the associate vice president for academic affairs.
Warning/Probation/Suspension Policy
Academic Satisfactory Progress/Good Standing
A student is deemed to be making satisfactory progress toward his or her academic goal if the student maintains a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. This student is deemed to be in academic good standing with the institution. However, other academic standards may apply to specific programs. A student must satisfy those other academic standards in order to be deemed in academic good standing with that program. See information on the program of interest to determine specific standards for that program.


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 6:
Academic Warning Status
A student in good standing whose cumulative GPA falls below 2.0 will be on academic warning status with the institution during his or her next semester. A student will be removed from this warning status and returned to good standing if he or she achieves a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 at the end of his or her semester on warning status. More restrictive standards may apply to certain programs or schools. See information on the program of interest.
Academic Probation
A student who fails to achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0 at the end of his or her semester on warning status will be put on academic probation with the institution during his or her next semester at MSCD. A student will be on academic probation as long as he or she has a cumulative GPA below 2.0, but is making progress toward good standing as explained below and has not been on academic probation for more than three semesters. Other conditions may apply to given programs or schools. See information on the program of interest.
A student is removed from academic probation and is in good standing the semester after achieving a cumulative GPA of at least 2.0.
During any semester that a student is on academic probation, the student must make progress toward good standing with the institution by taking all of the following actions:
achieve a semester GPA of 2.2 or higher
register and complete a minimum of 3 but no more than 12 semester hours (3 to 6 semester hours for summer semester)
take required activities as negotiated with the director of Student Intervention Services (may include certain classes, repeated courses, tutoring or other activities)
While on academic probation, a student may pre-register for the first semester following the academic warning status semester, but is prohibited from pre-registering any other semester. For subsequent academic probation status semesters, a GPA of at least 2.2 must be verified prior to registration.
Academic Suspension
A student on academic probation not making progress toward good standing will be prohibited from registering for one calendar year from the date of suspension. Appeal of suspension for this reason will be submitted to the director of Student Intervention Services. The director of Student Intervention Services will then deliver the appeal materials to the Student Academic Review Committee, which will review the appeal and notify the student of its decision. A student may appeal a suspension only two times in his or her academic career at the college.
A student making progress toward good standing, whose cumulative GPA remains below a 2.0 after three or more semesters on probation, will have his or her academic progress reviewed each semester by the Student Academic Review Committee. The committee will determine whether the student should be placed on suspension. In both cases, the decision of the Student Academic Review Committee is final.
Any student returning to the college after the one-calendar-year suspension must reapply and will be readmitted on academic probation with the institution. For these students, all probation rules outlined above will apply.
A student who is suspended for a second time will be re-admitted only if he or she has successfully completed an associate degree program from a community college after suspension from MSCD or can demonstrate to the Student Academic Review Committee that chances for successful completion of an educational program are greatly improved.
Contact Student Intervention Services at 303-556-4048 for further information.

Exceptions
Students may appeal to the Board of Academic Standards Exceptions to request a variance from college academic requirements. Valid reasons for variances must accompany all petitions, and the petitions must be signed by the appropriate dean and department chair.
Academic Honesty
Students have a responsibility to maintain standards of academic ethics and honesty. Cases of cheating or plagiarism are handled within the policies of Academic Affairs in accordance with procedures outlined in the MSCD Student Handbook.
Conduct of Students

When absences become excessive, the student may receive a failing grade for the course. If students anticipate a prolonged absence, they should contact their instructors. If they find that they cannot communicate with the instructor, they should contact the chair of that department, who will inform the instructor of the reasons for the anticipated absence. Whenever an instructor determines that a student's absences are interfering with academic progress, the instructor may submit a letter to the department chair informing that office of the situation.
Students at MSCD who, because of their sincerely held religious beliefs, are unable to attend classes, take examinations, participate in graded activities or submit graded assignments on particular days shall, without penalty, be excused from such classes and be given a meaningful opportunity to make up such examinations and graded activities or assignments provided that proper notice and procedures are followed. The policies and procedures designed to excuse class attendance on religious holidays are covered in the Student Rights and Responsibilities section of the MSCD Student Handbook.

Chemistry Department
The Chemistry Department is approved by the American Chemical Society and offers several degree programs: the bachelor of science in chemistry; bachelor of science in chemistry occupational health and safety area of emphasis; bachelor of science in chemistry criminalistics area of emphasis; and the bachelor of arts in chemistry. Minors in chemistry and criminalistics are also available.
Students who plan to pursue a career in chemistry after graduation or plan to attend graduate school in chemistry should choose the bachelor of science in chemistry program. The bachelor of arts in chemistry program is designed for students who plan a career in a field related to chemistry, but who do not intend to attend graduate school in chemistry. The bachelor of arts option, which requires fewer hours, may be especially attractive to those wishing a second major or to those students desiring secondary education licensure.
Criminalistics is the scientific investigation, identification, and comparison of physical evidence for criminal or civil court proceedings. Criminalists must be trained in many disciplines including chemistry, biology, law enforcement, physics, and mathematics. The four-year criminalistics curriculum leads to a bachelor of science degree and includes a half-time internship in a criminalistics laboratory during the senior year. Students in the criminalistics program are encouraged to complete all the requirements for a degree in chemistry approved by the American Chemical Society while completing the criminalistics degree program. Graduates of the program are prepared for employment in criminalistics and have completed the requirements for admission to graduate school in chemistry or criminalistics, medical school, dental school, or law school.
Students electing the chemistry major with the occupational health and safety emphasis will be trained in the recognition, evaluation, and control of hazards in the workplace. This area of emphasis includes courses equivalent to those required for the bachelor of arts major in chemistry, as well as supporting science and mathematics courses and courses in instrumental analysis, toxicology, safety, and occupational health and safety. A mandatory internship during the junior or senior year provides valuable practical experience. Graduates of this program are prepared for immediate employment in the field of occupational health and safety or the field of chemistry. Graduates in this emphasis area also meet the requirements for admissions to medical school, dental school, veterinary school, or graduate school in industrial hygiene or chemistry.
For further information about the occupational health and safety or criminalistics programs, students should contact the Chemistry Department. Students seeking secondary education licensure in science should see an advisor in the teacher education program for requirements.
The following courses constitute the basic core and are required in all chemistry degree programs except
for the minor in chemistry.

Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department
The Earth and Atmospheric Sciences Department is composed of three separate disciplines: geography, geology, and meteorology. The department offers a bachelor of arts or bachelor of science degree in land use and bachelor of science degrees in meteorology and environmental science. The bachelor of science degree is recommended for those students desiring a stronger background in the physical and quantitative aspects of the environment.


SCHOOL OF LETTERS, ARTS & SCIENCES 99
Minor programs are available in geography, geology, and meteorology. Students working toward teacher licensure in either science or social studies may take courses in geology, geography, or meteorology. Students interested in earth space science may develop an Individualized Degree Program major through the Center for Individualized Learning, 303-556-8342, Central Classroom 106.
Environmental Science
The environmental science major is designed as an entry-level major for MSCD students as well as for students transferring as juniors from the community colleges with backgrounds in hazardous materials technology or water quality or a degree in Environmental and Safety Technology. All students are required to complete a unified core. In addition, students may choose from five options (emphases) depending on their areas of interest. The multidisciplinary emphasis provides students with a broad-based environmental science background, whereas the other emphases in hazardous materials, water quality, environmental chemistry, and ecological restoration are more specialized. No minor is required. (See Environmental Science on page 104.)
Land Use
The land use major is very broad in scope and can be used for a number of career objectives and graduate school programs. Opportunities exist in such areas as planning, cartography, geographic information systems (GIS), air photo and satellite imagery interpretation, environmental and resource management, travel and transportation, mining and mineral resources, residential and industrial development, recreational land use, population analysis, and a variety of other interrelated fields. This program provides a solid foundation for continued study at the graduate level. (See Land Use on page 114.)
Meteorology
Meteorology is the science of the atmosphere. Modem meteorologists are involved in weather observing, forecasting, research, and dissemination of weather information to the public. Meteorologists also study global weather and climate, and investigate the influence that human beings exert on Earths climate. The forecasting laboratory includes a computerized observing station, daily weather maps, satellite images, and access to the national weather database. The bachelor of science degree in meteorology follows American Meteorological Society recommendations for undergraduate programs. Students should contact a meteorology faculty member to discuss degree programs, career opportunities, and graduate school options. (See Meteorology on page 119.)
English Department
The English Department offers instruction in literature, writing, language, and linguistics and in elementary and secondary English education. Courses in each area appeal to students in every school of the college who wish to read and understand representative literatures of the world; to examine the principles underlying how language works; and to cultivate their writing skills.
The department invites students in other disciplines to select English courses to enhance their general education. Students may also choose an English major or minor from areas listed below.
Students who are considering a major or minor in the English Department are expected to consult with faculty for advising. Students in elementary or secondary licensure programs should consult with advisors in the appropriate education department as well.
The English major may choose an emphasis in one of the following:
literature
writing
elementary school teaching, leading to licensure
secondary school teaching, leading to licensure
The English minor may choose an emphasis in one of the following:
language and linguistics
literature
writing
The English Department assesses the major in designated Senior Experience courses. Portfolios of papers assigned through these courses will be read by members of the faculty. Senior Experience courses should not be taken until the students final year of study. Because these courses may not be offered every semester, students should discuss scheduling with English Department advisors. Further information is available in the English Department office.


100 SCHOOL OF LETTERS, ARTS & SCIENCES
English Major for Bachelor of Arts
Literature Emphasis
The English major, literature emphasis, encompasses a range of American, British, and world literature. The program provides a strong foundation of courses in literature and language, sequenced to cultivate a sense of literary development, and fosters an increasing familiarity with major works and writers, critical theory, literary terminology, and research materials. Because of their command of the written language, their ability to deal with ideas and concepts as well as facts, and their broader understanding of human nature and social realities, literature majors are valued in many fields, including academe, the
law, and the world of business.

Elementary School Teaching Emphasis
The elementary school teaching emphasis in English, offered in conjunction with the Colorado State Department of Education licensure program, prepares future teachers of elementary education to understand and teach the diverse subject matter required for licensure. The program will provide students with a strong foundation in literature and literary genres; a solid perspective on the English language, including its history, structure, and constituents; and both theory and practice in composition, language arts, communication, and teaching methodology. It also addresses the need to prepare teachers to teach multicultural literature, accommodate cultural and ethnic diversity in language and writing, and communicate effectively with a diverse population of students.

PASS-FAIL OPTION The pass -fail option enco ur ages studen t s to broad e n their ed u cationa l experience by taking courses out side their m ajor and minor fields. The pass not a t ion has no effect o n the GPA ; the fail notation is equiv a l ent to the grade of "F." Students who have comp l eted a t least one MSCD course wit h at l east a 2.0 cumulat i ve GPA may choose to be eva luated for a certain course on a pass-fail basis rather than by letter grade The pas -fail opt i on may be used for general elective credit only. Major minor G e neral Studies and other courses req uir ed for a degree or for teacher licensure may not be taken on a p ass -fail basi S e lf-paced cour es may not be t a ken under the pass-fail option. Maximum graduation credit for the e ungraded courses is 18 semester hours, earned in no more than six co ur ses limited to one course per se m es ter or module Students mu t declare interest in the pas -fai l option no later than the I a t d ay to add cla s e ( during the first 15 percent of the total time frame of the semester) for a particular se mester or modul e by contacti n g the Registrar's Office The in tructor will assign and re cord the p a -fail grade on a final grade list that identifies students electing and eligible for pas s-fai l grading. Students who request the option who are later declared ineligible will receive notification from the Re g i strar's Offi ce during the semester. They will be ass i g n ed a regular l ette r grade in the course. Once approved, the request for the pass-fail option is irrevocab le. Some institutions do not accept credits for co ur se in which a pa s notation is given. Therefore, students who plan to transfer or t ake graduate work s houl d determine whether the institution of their choice will accept the c r edit before registering for courses under the pas -fai l option. REPEATED COURSES (LAST GRADE STANDS) A student m ay repeat any c ourse taken at MSCD regardles of the original grade earned. By doing so, only the cre dit and the grade for the latest attempt at the cour e will remain on the student's MSC D aca demic record The grade for the prior attem pt (s) will be changed t o the "NC" notation. The courses mu t carry the same title course number and semes ter hour To effect uch a change, the student must rereg ister and pay tuition for the course in question, complete the cour e with a lett e r grade and comp let e the nece ary form in the Re g i strar's Office indicating th at the cour e ha been repeated. Otherwi e, the grade cha n ge will be made administrative l y when detected. Credit duplication involving transfer interin titutional or state college sys t em co ur ses may re s ult in transfer credit being di allowed. A failing cour e grade as igned as a result of academic di honesty i con idered a permanent F and is not ub ject to this policy. A st udent m ay not repeat a course aft e r the award of a MSCD degree to make u e of this policy STUDENT GRAD E APPEAL PRO CEDURE If students h ave rea on to qu estion the validity of a grade received in a course, they must make their reque t for a change before the end of the second week of the se me ter followi n g the completion of the cour e (the following fall emester in the case of the sp ring se mester).

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 6 Academic Warning Status A tudent in good tanding who se c umulative GPA falls be l ow 2.0 will be o n academic warning status with the institution during his or her next semester. A tudent will be removed from this warning status and returned to good standing if he or s he achieves a c umul ative GPA of at lea s t 2.0 at the end of his or her semester on warning status. More restrictive s tand ard may apply to certain program s or sc hools. See information on the program of interest. Academic Probation A s tud e nt who fail s to achieve a c umul ative GPA of at least 2 0 at the end of his or her se mester on warning s t at u s will be put on academic probation with the institution during his or her next semester at MSCD. A s tud ent will be on academic probation as long as he or she ha s a cumulative GPA below 2.0, but is making progre ss toward good s tanding as explained below and has not been on academic proba tion for more than thr ee se mesters. Other conditions may apply to given program s or sc hools. See infor mation o n the program of intere t. A s tudent is rem oved from academic probation and i s in good s tanding the semes ter after achieving a cumu l ative GPA of a t lea s t 2.0. Durin g any semester that a tudent is on academic probation the student must make pro g res s toward good tanding with the institution by taking all of the following action : achieve a se mester GPA of 2 2 or higher register and co mpl e te a minimum o f 3 but no more than 12 se mester h o ur s (3 to 6 semester hours for s ummer semester) t a ke required activities as negotiated with the dire c tor of Student Intervention Service (may include certain c l as es, repe a ted courses, tutorin g or other activities) While on academic prob a tion a student may pre-register for the first semes ter following the aca demic warning stat u s seme ter, but i s prohibited from pre-registering any other semester. For subsequent aca demi c probation s tatu s se me s ters, a GPA of a t least 2.2 must be verified prior t o registration. Academic Suspension A student on academic probation not making progre s toward goo d tanding will be prohibited from registering for one ca l endar year from the date of suspension Appeal of u pen s ion for thi reason will be submined to the director of Student Intervention Services. The director of Student Intervention Ser vices w ill then deliver the appeal materials to the Student Academic Review Committee whic h will review the appea l and notif y the student of it s decision. A s tud e nt may appea l a suspension only two Lime in hi or her academic career at the college A student making progress t oward good standing, whose cumulative GPA remains below a 2.0 after three or more semesters on probation, will have his or her academic progress reviewed each semester by the Student Academic Review Committee The committee will determine whether the student s hould be placed on suspen ion. In both ca es, the decision of the Student Academic Review Committee is final. Any s tudent returning to the college after the o n e-calendar-year uspen sio n must reapply and will be re admitted on academic probation with the institution. For the e students, all probation rules outlined above will apply. A student who is suspended for a second time will be re-admitted only if he or she has s ucce ss full y completed an associate degree program from a community college after s u s p ens ion from MSCD or can d emonstrate to the Student Academic R ev i ew Committee that chances for s u c cessful completion of an educational prog r a m are greatly improved.

PHILOSOPH Y DEPARTMENT Philosophical que s tions are of the mo t enduring interest becau se they a r e fundamental to our intellec tual and practical concerns A s a critica l inve s tigation into the ass umptions and implic a tion s associated with all disciplines, philo ophy is interdisciplinary in character. However, thi type of inquiry require s technical concepts and methods o it take s on the cha r ac t e r of a s pecialized discipline. Phil osophical inquiry is an interaction between pecu l ative and critica l thought recognizing no pre-established limits in its intere sts or its critical examinations. Therefore, philo ophy as a tudy program enlarge the stu dent s horizon of idea s throughout the variou disc ipline s in the college while providing the critical s kills nece ssary to a nal yze and sy nthesize the se ideas. It encourages s tudent s to explore creatively the full range of philosophical options to consider alternate point s of view, and to delve into profound i ss ues. Becau se of the s u bject matter attitude and methods employed in phi l o ophy the student will be much better prepared for le a der s hip in per so nal life, civic re pon s ibilitie and pursuit of a career. In addition to offering a variety of courses for s tudents who are pla nning to t ake only o ne or two courses in philosophy the department offers two progr a m both of which feature flexibility and individu a lized training: A major for s tudents seeking a so lid ge n eral training/b ac kground th a t can serve eithe r as a basis for graduate s tudies in such varied areas as philosop h y, the humanitie s, l aw, medicine bu s ine ss, and urb a n pla nning and development, or as a basis for a career in which the spec ialized trainin g requir e d i s provided by the employer, s uch as careers in corporate management gove rnment pol itics bankin g, or education. A minor for s tudents who have alr eady cho en a career and seek to complement their specialized training/backgrou n d with the oppor tuniti es afforded by philo sophy to incre ase their ca reer options and generally to increa se the quality of the ir live s Students who either major o r minor in philo so ph y are encouraged t o take University of Colorado at Denver courses tha t contribute to the requirement s or the balance of their philo ophy experience The e stude nt s s h ould consult the cha i r of the Philo so phy Department at MSCD when planning to t ake Uni versity of Color a do at Den ver courses Philosoph y Major for Bachelor of Arts Requir ed Cour s es Semester Hour s PHI 1440 L ogic . . . . . . . . . ...................... 3 PHI 3000 Histor y of Greek Philosoph y ................... ........................ 3 PHI 3020 History of Modem Phi l osophy . . ........................ 3 P H I 4 I 00 Senior Semin ar . . . . . . . . . . 3 T o t al ........................................................................ 1 2 Additi o n a l Cour se Subj ec t Area s Required Lower-Di v i i o n : I ntrodu c tor y Co ur ses ............................... ............. ................. 6 Upper -Division: Met ap h ysics and/or Epis tem o l ogy. . . . . . . . . . . . 3 Ethic s and/or S ocial Philo sophy . . . . . ....... ..... .......... 3 One philo s ophical pr o blem one philo so pher o r one philo so phi ca l movement . . ...... 3 On e course r e l a ting phil osop hy to another field such a s religion an, sc ien ce, o r his tory ..... 3 Total... ...... . . . . . . . . . . . ... 1 8 Addition a l Electives a t Any L eve l (se l ected in con ultation with and a ppr ove d b y the Phil osophy D e panment ) ......... ........ 6 Total........... . . . . . . . ................ 36
