GENERAL INFORMATION 5
GENERAL INFORMATION
THE COLLEGE
Metropolitan State College of Denver is a comprehensive, baccalaureate degree granting, urban, non-residen-tial “College of Opportunity.” The College offers arts and sciences, professional and business courses and programs to a diverse student population. Excellence in teaching and learning is MSCD’s primary objective.
The College’s mission is to provide a 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.
With its modified open admission policy, the College welcomes students from all walks of life and circumstances, including all levels of academic preparation consistent with statutory guidelines, all conditions of economic and income status, all ages and all ethnic and cultural backgrounds. In addition to degree-seeking students, non-degree students seeking opportunities for continuing education are welcomed.
• MSCD is required to serve adult students. 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 and transfer students, 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 College is a teaching institution where excellence in teaching and learning is accorded the highest priority. Student success, supported in a collegial atmosphere of academic freedom, is of paramount importance, and all members of the college community seek to inspire students to strive for the highest level of future achievement. The College endeavors to provide students with an education that enhances the quality of their lives, and enables them to be well educated, critically thinking citizens who contribute and participate in meaningful ways in community and civic life.
The College awards bachelor of science, bachelor of arts, bachelor of fine arts, bachelor of music and bachelor of music education degrees. Students can choose from 50 majors and 78 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 bachelor’s 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 College’s curriculum and philosophy reflect that diversity and enrich the urban experience.
Current enrollment is 20,791. Students range in age from 15 to 73 with a median age of 23. Ethnic minorities make up 24 percent of the students.
About 59 percent of students are enrolled full time. Seventeen percent are traditional students, beginning college before age 20, while 83 percent represent nontraditional age groups. Ninety-three percent of students reside in the seven counties of the Denver metropolitan area:
Adams 13% Denver 27%
Arapahoe 21% Douglas 7%
Boulder 3% Jefferson 18%
Broomfield 4%


6 GENERAL INFORMATION
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, 43 percent of full-time faculty are women and 20 percent represent ethnic minorities.
The MSCD faculty is among the most productive in the state. Latest QIS (2003-2004) shows average weekly teaching hours per full-time faculty FTE is 12.4 compared to 9.2 for CSU and 6.2 for UCB.
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
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 693,000 volumes, and one of the most unusual student union facilities in the country in the historic Bavarian-style Tivoli Brewery Building. Excellent physical fitness facilities include a block-long physical education/events center with a swimming pool, weight room, game courts, dance studios and event seating for 3,000.
The Auraria Higher Education Center’s 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.
The College also has two satellite campus sites operated by the Extended Campus Program. Metro South, located at 5660 Greenwood Plaza Boulevard in Arapahoe County, serves the south, southeast, and southwest metropolitan areas. Metro 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 Metro South and Metro North. At least 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.
Distance Education Options
MSCD offers several options for distance education: online courses, hybrid courses (online/classroom combination), telecourses and correspondence courses.
Online education is the fastest growing distance education option at MSCD with over 4,100 students registering for one or more online classes during the Fall 2004 semester. MSCD’s online courses tend to be small and highly interactive for both instructors and students. A student can complete General Studies online. For information about completing a major, minor, or certificate online, please contact the appropriate academic department. Please check with academic advisors and visit the MSCD Web site for more specific information about the online learning environment, suggested computer equipment, and other online services that are offered by the College (www.mscd.edu).

Individualized Degree Program
The Individualized Degree Program (IDP) offers the student the opportunity to design her/his own major or minor in collaboration with a faculty mentor and an advisor from the Center for Individualized Learning. The IDP serves students whose educational goals are not met by other majors/minors described in the MSCD Catalog. Students draw upon courses from across the College to develop a degree plan, and pursue a wide range of areas of study.
International Studies, Integrated Arts & Sciences, Computer Information Systems Criminalistics, Family Studies, Health and Wellness, and Arts Administration are examples of a few of the areas students have pursued through the IDP.
The faculty mentor, the appropriate department chair, the dean and the director of the Center for Individualized Learning approve each student’s program. All requirements for any bachelor’s degree apply.
For additional information contact the Center for Individualized Learning (303-556-8342, Central Classroom 106). Additional information is also available on pages 53 and 54 in this Catalog and at www.mscd.edu/~cil/.
BASIC DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
Students are responsible for full knowledge of the provisions and regulations pertaining to their program contained in this Catalog and elsewhere. The final responsibility for completing the requirements for a degree rests with the student and it is recommended that s/he seek advice. Students should never assume that they have approval to deviate from a stated requirement without a properly signed statement to that effect. Please refer to the Academic Policies and Procedures section in this Catalog.
REQUIREMENTS FOR ALL BACHELOR’S DEGREES
To earn a bachelor of science, a bachelor of arts, or a bachelor of fine arts degree, a student must satisfy the following minimum requirements, plus any others stipulated for the degree for which a student is a candidate. Please refer to the Academic Policies and Procedures section in this Catalog.

• Complete one subject major consisting of not less than 30 semester hours. With certain exceptions (see the Degrees and Programs section on page 8 of this Catalog), complete a minor consisting of at least 18 semester hours. If a student completes two majors, the second major satisfies the minor requirement. Completing two concentrations under one major does not constitute the completion of two majors. Completion of two majors does not result in two degrees or diplomas. Course-work used to meet requirements for one major or minor may not be used to meet requirements for another major or minor. Students may not major and minor in the same discipline and are encouraged to obtain verification from an advisor if uncertainty exists.
• Complete all special requirements of a department and school.

Graduation Checklist
Students who anticipate completing all degree requirements within the next two semesters should review the following sections of this Catalog: Requirements for All Bachelor Degrees; Academic Policies and Procedures (pertaining to Curriculum, Advising and Program Planning [CAPP], Graduation, Diplomas and Commencement, and Honors and Awards).
After students have completed 90 earned credit hours at MSCD, including approved transfer credits, they should obtain a CAPP Compliance Report by requesting one from their major department or by logging on to http://metroconnect.mscd.edu. After reviewing the CAPP report with their faculty advisor (major and minor), if any adjustments are needed, the department will submit an adjustment form to the Office of the Registrar. Once adjustments are made, an updated Compliance Report will be mailed to the student.
Application for Graduation: File an Application for Graduation with the Office of the Registrar (CN 105) by the following deadlines: for Fall 2005 graduation, file by September 2, 2005; for Spring 2006 graduation, file by January 27, 2006; and for Summer 2006 graduation, file by June 9, 2005. Students should file an Application for Graduation only if they will complete all degree requirements that semester.
After submitting an Application for Graduation, the student will be considered a candidate for graduation for that semester. The student will receive information about the final steps in the graduation process and the commencement ceremony. As candidates for graduation, students will receive another CAPP Compliance Report that will indicate any problems in their graduation status. Students should ensure that the correct address is on file with the Office of the Registrar.
There are commencement ceremonies at the end of the fall and spring semesters. Graduates are encouraged to attend one of the two ceremonies. The commencement program lists candidates, degree, and degree honors, if any. Although there is no commencement ceremony in the summer, students can still graduate. Summer candidates are asked to attend the fall commencement ceremony. Their names, degrees and honors, if any, will appear only in the fall commencement program. Check MSCD’s Web site for complete, up-to-date information about commencement at www.mscd.edu/student/commencement/.
Diplomas are issued approximately three weeks after the semester ends. Students may pick up their diploma or make arrangements for it to be mailed. Information will be sent from the Office of the Registrar to graduating students about these arrangements.
Transcripts with the posted degree will also be available approximately three weeks after the semester ends. Students may request transcripts as early as the middle of their last semester and indicate that it is to be held until the degree is posted. All transcripts are free. Transcripts may be requested in person at the Office of the Registrar, CN 105, by fax at 303-556-3999, or via the Web at the Registrar’s home page http://www.mscd.edu/enroll/registrar under transcripts. Diplomas and transcripts will NOT be issued if money is owed to the College. If you owe any money to the College, please contact the Office of Student Accounts, CN 110, 303-556-6188, to arrange payment.


GENERAL STUDIES 1
THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Philosophy of the General Studies Program
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.
State Guaranteed General Education Courses
Certain General Studies courses are approved as state guaranteed general education courses. This designation means that the course is transferable to general education or to electives at all Colorado public institutions and all undergraduate degree programs. There are restrictions to the number of courses that can be taken, and some majors require specific general education courses. For details go to page 55 of this Catalog or to www.state.co.us/cche/gened/gtpathways/index.pdf.
General Studies Goals
The General Studies Program is designed to help graduates achieve the following competencies: Students at Metropolitan State College of Denver should be able to:
• write and speak with clarity;
• read and listen critically;
• draw conclusions from quantitative data;
• recognize faulty reasoning;
• organize ideas; and
• communicate with experts in other disciplines and learn from them.
MSCD students should:
• have an open attitude toward different approaches to problems;
• have an informed awareness of the principal human achievements in history, arts and letters, society, and science;
• and 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 l-Skills
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.


16 GENERAL STUDIES
Level Il-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 principal 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:
CATEGORY ... Level I* Composition.. . Mathematics. . . Communications
SEMESTER HOURS
..............6
..............3
..............3
Level II**
Historical..............................................................................3
Arts and Letters........................................................................6
Social Sciences.........................................................................6
Natural Sciences........................................................................6
Total***...............................................................................33
*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 I 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 listing of these courses begins on page 55 of this Catalog and courses approved for General Studies are indicated by course in the Course Descriptions section of this Catalog. General College Requirements brochures contain all approved General Studies, Multicultural and Senior Experience courses. The brochure is updated two times per year and is available from academic departments, the Academic Advising Center (CN 104) and Academic Affairs (CN 318).
• 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. Check with your depart-
mental advisor.

These programs are intended to provide high school students with an alternative learning environment.
To participate, 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. PSEO students are responsible for payment of all tuition and fees by the College deadline. They are later reimbursed by their school districts for tuition (not fees) for up to two courses per semester, providing that they successfully complete these classes with grades of C or better. Fast Track students are not limited to two courses, and the school districts pay tuition (not fees) at the time they register. To apply to the PSEO or Fast Track Program, a student must submit the following:
• High School Concurrent Enrollment form, including student, parent, school district and college administrator signatures
• Completed MSCD admission application with the required $25 application fee
Upon receipt of these documents, the student will be admitted into the PSEO or Fast Track Program. ACT scores, SAT scores or assessment tests are required to access many classes.
Student Education and Enrichment Program
The Student Education and Enrichment (SEE) Program is designed to supplement a student’s existing education through early participation in college-level classes. This advanced program 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 Colorado high school juniors and seniors. Students who participate in the SEE Program are fully responsible for tuition andfees.
To apply for admission through the SEE Program, the student must submit the following documents:


ADMISSIONS 21

22 ADMISSIONS
Transfer credits are accepted under the following guidelines:
• Credit must have been earned at an institution of higher education holding full regional accreditation.
• MSCD accepts up to 64 semester hours from two-year institutions and up to 90 semester hours from four-year institutions or a combination of two-year and four-year institutions.
• Grades earned must be a “C-” or better. Courses with “D,” “F” or similar grades are not transferable. Also, courses graded with C.E.U.s (Continuing Education Units) will not be accepted. A summary of transfer credit from each institution is indicated on the MSCD academic record. Neither transfer course grades nor previous grade point averages are indicated or affect the MSCD grade point average.
• Course content must be similar to that of MSCD courses.
• No preparatory courses are applicable toward an MSCD degree.
• 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 transcripts, are considered to have satisfied MSCD’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 regarding students transferring between Colorado public institutions, MSCD has instituted procedures for resolving transfer credit disputes. Questions regarding these procedures may be directed to Cristina Martinez in the Office of Admissions at 303-556-3984.
Transfer Services
The Office of Transfer Services offers assistance to students transferring from other institutions to MSCD. Specific services provided include the following:
• Weekly visits to local community colleges in the Denver Metro area
• Visits to other Colorado community colleges once or twice annually
• Guidance on selecting appropriate transferable courses
• Preliminary transcript evaluation
• Transfer student scholarships
• Referral assistance to academic departments
• Resolution of transfer course issues
Transfer counselors are available by appointment and for walk-in counseling. Counselors work closely with transcript evaluators to provide students with information about transfer credits and how those credits may be applied to their degree programs. Questions pertaining to a student’s official transfer credit evaluation should be referred to the transfer evaluator responsible for the evaluation. That person’s name and telephone number are found on the letter that accompanies the evaluation sent to the student. General questions regarding a transfer evaluation or preliminary evaluation should be referred to the Office of Transfer Services, Central Classroom Building, Room 103, 303-556-3774.

ENROLLMENT
New Student Orientation
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. 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 College 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 New Student Orientation on MSCD’s Web site (www.mscd.edu/~nso/) or call 303-556-6931.
Reading, Writing and Mathematics Placement Examinations
If the ACT or SAT has been taken, some assessment tests may be waived if the following scores are met or exceeded: an ACT subscore at or above 18 in English (SAT verbal of 440), 19 in math (SAT math of 460) or 17 in reading (SAT verbal of 430). For additional information on English or Reading, call 303-556-3677. For additional information regarding mathematics placement, visit the MSCD Web site at http://clem.mscd.edu/~math-cs/studentinfo/mglp.pdf or obtain a hard copy of the Mathematics Group Learning Program brochure from the Academic Advising Center, CN-104. Degree-seeking students who are diagnosed as needing remedial course work have at their disposal basic skills courses offered through the Community College of Denver. Students are responsible for completing remedial course work no later than the end of the freshman year (i.e., within the first 30 semester hours matriculated as a college student).
Academic Advising
At MSCD students are provided multiple sources of academic advising support. Continuing students with declared majors receive advising assistance from their academic departments. New students and students without declared majors receive advising support from the Academic Advising center, CN 104. Services available to students in the center include the following: assistance with course selection, scheduling and registration; help with long-term degree planning; identification of degree enhancement strategies; and ongoing developmental advising, including assistance with the major-minor selection process, adjustment to college, etc. For additional information call 303-556-3680.
REGISTRATION
All continuing students in good standing and all accepted applicants 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 MetroCon-nect (http://metroconnect.mscd.edu), or by writing or faxing (303-556-3999) the address and phone number change to the Registrar’s Office.
Information on the registration procedure and registration dates is available on MetroConnect (http:// metroconnect.mscd.edu).
Concurrent Enrollment
Students who find it necessary to register at MSCD and another college at the same time should check with MSCD Transfer Services (CN 103) concerning the acceptance and application of transfer credits.


ENROLLMENT AND REGISTRATION 2i
Pooled Registration
MSCD and the University of Colorado at Denver have formed a common pool of courses available to students at each institution. For the pool, MSCD offers courses through the School of Letters, Arts and Sciences, through the Economics Department in the School of Business and through the Technical Communications and Human Performance and Leisure Studies departments in the School of Professional Studies. UCD offers courses through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
Students must register for pooled courses through their home institution. Students at MSCD:
• must comply with all MSCD policies, procedures and deadlines when registering for, withdrawing from or dropping UCD pooled courses
• may not be placed on a wait list for any UCD pooled course
For students at MSCD, UCD pooled course titles and grades will appear on the Metro State transcript and will count in the GPA and hours toward graduation; however, UCD pooled courses will not satisfy academic residence requirements for degrees from Metro State. This restriction applies to the residence requirements of the overall degree (30 semester hours minimum), the major (8 upper-division semester hours minimum), and the minor (3 upper-division semester hours minimum).
MSCD/UCD Nonpooled Courses
Students wishing to register for UCD courses not listed in the common pool must follow concurrent registration procedures:
• Complete a UCD admission application.
• Register and pay for UCD courses at UCD.
• Request that official transcripts from UCD be sent to MSCD at the end of the semester.
Students are advised:
• to consult with their academic advisor at MSCD to determine transferability of courses.
• to consult with MSCD’s Financial Aid Office if receiving aid.
Interinstitutional Registration
Students enrolled at Metropolitan State College of Denver 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 inter-institutionally will be counted as part of the 64 semester hours from community colleges applicable to an 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 prevails. Students are advised to confer with department chairs and/ or coordinators of academic advising before registering interinstitutionally. The enrollment status of a student in the interinstitutional registration program 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 and no academic record is maintained. The cost for auditing a course is based on regular tuition. The Tuition and Fees Table is available on MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu/enroll/admissions/tuition.htm). Audit approval forms are available in deans’ and academic department offices.


26 TUITION AND FEES
Changes in Registration
Enrolled students may adjust schedules by dropping and/or adding classes. Complete information concerning dropping and/or adding classes and the tuition and fee refund schedule can be found on Metro-Connect (http://metroconnect.mscd.edu).
Students who reduce their course load after the 12th day 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. An 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 on MetroConnect (http:// metroconnect.mscd.edu).
Registration Status
The College generally defines full-time status as being registered for 12 semester hours in fall and/or spring semesters, eight semester hours in the summer. Flowever, to complete a degree in four years or eight semesters, students need to take at least 15 hours a semester. Similarly, half-time is generally defined as six semester hours, fall and spring and four semester hours for summer. Less than half-time is the other term used, which is generally defined as less than six semester hours in the fall and spring and less than four semester hours in the summer. However, for financial aid purposes 12 semester hours is also the full-time standard in the summer. (See page 29 of this Catalog). To be eligible for health insurance coverage automatically, the numbers are 10 semester hours in the fall and spring and eight semester hours in the summer. (See page 29 of this Catalog). You can order an enrollment verification on MetroConnect (http://metroconnect.mscd.edu).
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 Classification Form and the evidence requested must be submitted to the Registrar’s 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 available under Academic Calendar on MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu/academic/acal.htm).
College Opportunity Fund (COF)
Beginning Fall 2005, every eligible Colorado resident who will be a student must sign up for the new College Opportunity Fund (COF) in order to authorize payment of the state’s contribution toward tuition at any public college or university in the state of Colorado that the student plans to attend, such as Metropolitan State College of Denver.
These funds, called “stipends,” will be applied to a student’s college account each semester and are available for up to 145 credit hours of college-level undergraduate study. The actual value of the stipend will be determined by the Colorado Legislature each year. For the 2005-2006 academic year it is estimated to be $80 per credit hour.
Students must apply online for the stipend at www.CollegeInColorado.org.
What happens if a student does not sign up? That student will not be eligible for the stipend and will be responsible for paying the total in-state tuition - both the student’s share and the state’s share (which prior to Fall 2005 was being paid directly to the institution, without the necessity for authorization through the student’s COF application).
The COF application requires students to submit only their legal name, date of birth and Social Security Number, and needs to be completed only once in a student’s lifetime. The application must be completed before the stipend can be credited to a student’s tuition and fee bill.
Eligibility: In-state, undergraduate students will be eligible for the stipend regardless of age, income or financial aid status. Students who are seeking a second bachelor’s degree or post bachelor degree credit are eligible to use the stipend for up to 30 credit hours.
For more information: Not all of the details were available when this Catalog was printed. As more information becomes available, it will be communicated to students, faculty and staff via MetroConnect email. In the meantime, for COF stipend general information and application please visit: www.CollegeInColorado.org.
Tuition and College Service Fees
The Board of Trustees, 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 can be found by going to the Tuition and Fees Table on MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu/enroll/admissions/tuition.htm).

28 TUTION AND FEES
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
All students taking 10 credit hours or more in the fall or spring semester or eight credit hours or more in the summer semester 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.*
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 and providing proof of acceptable* outside health insurance coverage (a copy of the front and back of your insurance card) by the deadline indicated on the appropriate semester waiver form. Waiver forms will not be accepted after the deadline. 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 both the Student Health Insurance Office located in the Health Center at Auraria (PL 150) and the Student Accounts Office (CN 110). Waiver forms are available from the Health Center at Auraria Web site at http://www.mscd.edu/student/resources/health/ insurance.htm. Students requesting a waiver must:
• Complete the student health insurance waiver form.
• Attach a copy of a valid outside health insurance card to the waiver form. Note: copy both the front and back side of your insurance card on to a separate sheet of paper.
• Submit the waiver form by the deadline indicated on the appropriate semester waiver form (URL given above) (deadline and insurance standards change from semester to semester).
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 for the semester in which they enroll and every fall semester thereafter.
All covered services at the Health Center at Auraria are paid at 100 percent after any applicable co-pay-ments. The deductible is waived and there is no need to complete an insurance claim form. The preexisting condition exclusion clause is also 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 Health Center at Auraria.
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 Health Center at Auraria after they pay the center’s per-semester usage fee. Dependents 17 years old or younger are not eligible for services at the Health Center. Please call the insurance office for information regarding pediatric care. In addition, ongoing 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 on MSCD’s Web site (URL given above). Students with questions regarding Student Health Insurance should contact the Student Insurance Office at 303-556-3873.
* Effective August I, 1998, the Colorado Indigent Care Program (CICP) 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. Comparable coverage information may be found at our Web site or call 303-556-3873.
*For a waiver to be approved (effective Fall semester 2005) the outside health insurance plan must be in the form of individual, indemnity or group health coverage that includes:
• A deductible of no more than $5000
• Co-insurance amounts of no more than 50%
• A maximum benefit of no less than $250,000 annually.


STUDENT DENTAL INSURANCE Voluntary Program for all Students
Voluntary Dental Insurance is available to students taking one credit hour or more. Information and application forms can be obtained at the Student Insurance Office in the Health Center at Auraria (PL 150).
FINANCIAL AID
The Metropolitan State College of Denver 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 student’s family could reasonably be expected to provide and the expected cost of attending MSCD.
Estimated Expenses
The 2004-2005 academic year expenses will be as follows for a student not living with parents:
Resident Nonresident
Tuition and Fees $3,793. . . . $10,538
Room and Board 7,235. .. 7,235
Books and Supplies... 1,187. .. 1,187
Transportation 575... 575
Miscellaneous 1.045. . . 1.045
Total $13,835. .. $20,580
Tuition and fees are set by Metro and Colorado Commission of Higher Education 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 owement 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 MSCD’s Office of Financial Aid. 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), preferably no later than mid-February, and submit all requested documents to the MSCD Office of Financial Aid by March 12th.
Detailed information concerning application procedures is provided at our Web site, www.mscd.edu.
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 student’s enrollment, and funds allocated to the College by the state and federal governments.


30 FINANCIAL AID
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 2005-06 academic year will range from $400 to $4,050 for those students who qualify. Full-time, half-time, or less than half-time students may qualify for a Federal Pell Grant.
Federal Supplemental Educational 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 $300 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 amounts of the CSG award ranges from $100 to $800 per fall and spring semesters.
Colorado Leveraging Educational Assistance program (CLEAP) are a combination of federal and state funds awarded by the same criteria as CSG. The amount of the CLEAP award is $200 per semester.
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. Deadline for the submission of the MSCD Scholarship Application is March 1 each year for the next academic year.
Presidential Scholarships: These scholarships include four-year scholarships for entering high school students and two-year scholarships for transfer students. Presidential FTigh School scholarships cover up to the cost of tuition and mandatory fees per semester for up to 15 credits.
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 scholarship Web site (www.mscd.edu/enroll/ fmaid/scholarship) for information regarding scholarships and to access free online scholarship searches.
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 that 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 $1,500 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 perform a Perkins Loan Entrance Interview over the Web 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 perform a Loan Entrance Interview over the Web 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 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 Web site (www.mscd.edu) 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 $2,500 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 emailed an Award Notification.
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 12th day of school each fall and spring semester and the 8th day of the summer 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 cur-


32 SERVICES & PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS
rent 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 Cashier’s 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 Web site (www.mscd.edu) for information regarding proration of aid disbursements.
Repayment Policy
Students who receive financial aid and withdraw officially or unofficially from MSCD prior to completion of a term may be required to repay a portion of financial aid and scholarships. All required financial aid repayments must be made to MSCD before the end of the current academic year or before additional Title IV funds can be disbursed to the student, whichever occurs first. Repayment is made to the MSCD Business Office. Please go to MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu) for more specific information.
Financial Aid as a Form of Payment
Please refer to MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu) for information regarding payment of tuition-and fees with awarded aid.
SERVICES AND PROGRAMS FOR STUDENTS

Successful completion of national examinations, departmental examinations, or a prior learning portfolio, or assessment of nonaccredited training programs through published guides may be used to award credit or may permit placement in advanced courses. A student may earn up to 60 semester hours of credit toward degree requirements using prior learning credit options. This credit will be posted to the student’s record after the completion of 8 semester hours of residency credit at MSCD. Prior learning credit may not be used toward the last 12 semester hours of a degree program, does not substitute for residency requirements, and cannot be used to challenge prerequisite courses for courses already completed. Students are advised that letter grades are not assigned for such credit, and some institutions may not accept transfer credits that do not include letter grades. Additional information is available from the offices indicated in each section below.
ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATIONS
Students who have performed satisfactorily in special college-level courses while in high school, and who have passed appropriate Advanced Placement (AP) examinations conducted by the College Entrance Examination Board may have official scores submitted directly to the Office of Admissions for consideration for college credit. This office, in consultation with the appropriate department chair, determines the amount and nature of the credit and/or advanced placement granted. AP credit is awarded after the completion of 8 credit hours at MSCD (see following chart). Students should contact www. collegeboard.com or 888-225-5427 to request official AP scores; MSCD’s AP code is 4505.

COLLEGE-LEVEL EXAMINATION PROGRAM (CLEP)
The College Level Examination Porgram (CLEP) consists of a series of national standardized examinations. They are designed to evaluate nonaccredited college-level learning in order to award credit for successful demonstration of this knowledge. Based on the results of one or more of the CLEP examinations that are accepted at MSCD, the College may award up to 30 credits toward the General Studies requirements. Thus, students may test out of many of the traditional courses required during the freshman year. Students are advised to check with their major departments for information on specific General Studies requirements that may not be met through the use of CLEP examinations.
MSCD does not allow CLEP to be used for ENG 1020, Freshman Composition: Analysis, Research and Documentation.
No more than 60 credits may be earned through all the approved CLEP examinations.


ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTION
• Credit earned through the English composition with essay, humanities, natural sciences, social
sciences/history, and college mathematics examinations may be applied only to General Studies requirements. Credit earned through the other approved examinations may apply to any requirements unless otherwise stated.
• Credit earned will be entered on the student’s transcript with the title of the examination(s) and
without reference to any specific MSCD course(s). CLEP examinations are recorded without reference to a letter grade and are not figured into the student’s GPA. Credit earned through CLEP examinations does not count toward residency credit requirements and therefore may not be awarded as part of the last 12 credit hours applicable to a degree.
• Credit earned through CLEP examinations will not be recorded on the student’s permanent record
until the student has earned 8 hours in residency credit at MSCD. Students may take CLEP examinations prior to meeting the 8 credit hour residency requirement, in which case the scores will be maintained in the student’s record and appropriate credit awarded when the 8 credit hour residency requirement is met.
• In order to have CLEP examination or military examination (DANTES) results evaluated, the stu-
dent should have a copy of the official score report sent to, Metropolitan State College of Denver, Office of Admissions, Campus Box 16, P.O. Box 173362, Denver, CO 80217-3362. To request an official CLEP score report, contact www.collegeboard.com/clep or 800-257-9558. MSCD’s CLEP code is 4505. DANTES test scores can be obtained by calling 850-452-1063.
• All CLEP examinations will be subject to the statement of policy in place at the time the scores are
submitted, not the policy in place at the time the examination was taken.
• Credit awarded through CLEP examinations at other colleges or universities will be re-evaluated at
MSCD according to the MSCD policy in place at the time the test scores are submitted. Students are advised to have an official copy of their score(s) sent to The College in order to have that credit evaluated.
• MSCD will not grant credit for a CLEP examination if prior to the semester the exam is taken, a
student has completed, or was enrolled in, college courses equivalent to or more advanced than the subject material of the exam. Credit will not be recorded on a student’s permanent record until all official transcripts from other regionally accredited colleges and universities attended by the student have been received and evaluated by the Office of Admissions.
•Any exception to these policies must be approved through the Board on Academic Standards Exceptions (B.A.S.E.). Information about filing an appeal through B.A.S.E. is available from the student’s academic dean’s office. •
• Failure to achieve the required score(s) listed will not be entered on the permanent record. How-
ever, a copy of the CLEP score report will be retained in the student’s file.
• Any examination may be repeated six months after the date of the previous examination.
For advising assistance with CLEP examinations and information about departmental credit by examination and portfolio assessment, students may contact the Center for Individualized Learning, Central Classroom Building, Room 106, 303-556-8342. Additional information about the content and format of CLEP examinations is available through the College Board Web site at http://www.collegeboard.com/ clep. Examinations may be taken through the Community College of Denver Test Center, 303-556-3810, South Classroom Building 223. Other official testing centers can be found through the College Board Web site listed above.

Attainment Examinations
Any student may take attainment examinations in some departments for the purpose of waiving specific graduation requirements. Passing such an examination, although it does not reduce the number of credits required for graduation, entitles students to substitute their own choice for the required subject. The examination is approximately the equivalent of the final examination in the course.


50 ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTIONS
Departmental Credit by Examination
A department may grant a student credit for college courses for which the student requests and passes appropriate examinations. The charge for each credit hour requested is one-half the in-state tuition for one credit hour, and must be paid prior to taking the examination. A maximum of 30 semester hours of credit may be awarded through departmental credit by examination. Credit through departmental examination is based on knowledge equivalent to a regular course offered by the College. Omnibus-numbered courses are excluded. Permission for departmental credit by examination must be obtained in advance from the instructor giving the examination, the department chair and the appropriate dean.
To earn credit by examination, a student must be currently enrolled in good standing in a degree or certificate program at the College. Credit by examination may not be counted as part of the last 12 credit hours of a degree program unless it is approved by the Board on Academic Standards Exceptions (BASE). Applications for submitting a request to BASE are available in the dean’s offices in each school.
If a student has registered for a higher numbered course in a sequence, the exam for a prerequisite for that higher-numbered course must be completed within the first three weeks of the semester. Credit by examination for a course which is a prerequisite for a course already completed will not be granted unless approved by BASE.
Examinations cannot be taken to raise grades, to remove failures, or to remove “NC,” “SP,” “I,” or “CC” notations. Credit by examination is not applicable toward academic residency requirements. Credit by examination cannot be obtained for a course in which a student has been enrolled at MSCD or at another regionally accredited college or university unless approved by BASE. Credit by examination will not be granted for courses attended as a listener, visitor or auditor.
Examinations for credit will be taken at a time specified by the department. A grade equivalent to “A” or “B” must be attained on the examination in order to receive credit, but credits so earned for the course will be recorded without a grade on the student’s permanent record and are not considered in computing college grade point averages.
The hours granted for credit by exam are not included as a part of the student’s semester enrollment. The credit will appear on the transcript for the semester in which the examination was taken, but the hours do not count as part of the student’s total enrollment for the purposes of financial aid or any other purpose predicated on total hours of enrollment for a given semester.
Credit by examination will be posted after a student has completed eight semester hours of credit at Metropolitan State College of Denver, and after an evaluation of all transfer credit has been completed. The application form will be maintained in the student’s file. No record of failures on such examinations will be entered on the student’s permanent record. Departmental examinations attempted for course credit under these guidelines may not be repeated.
Applications for departmental credit by examination are available at the Center for Individualized Learning, (CN 106, 303-556-8342) and from the Office of the Registrar (CN 105).
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 course listed in the Catalog. Students may also apply for credit for omnibus courses through portfolio assessment with the permission of the appropriate academic department. Applicants for credit through portfolio assessment will generally be required to take EDS 2680-1, The Portfolio Development Workshop, which is offered as a correspondence course.


Mill
ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTIONS 5
Policies that govern credit for prior learning options apply to credit awarded through the portfolio process. The charge for each credit hour requested is one-half the in-state tuition for one credit hour.
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, and information is available on our Web site: www.mscd.edu/~cil/.
Credit for Military Training and Other Training Programs
Military training and other educational programs, including DANTES, that have been assessed for college credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) 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 or DD-295 should be submitted to the Office of Admissions. In addition, students with Army training should request that an official AARTS transcript be mailed directly to the Office of Admissions by calling 866-297-4427; those with Air Force training should request an official Community College of the Air Force transcript by calling 334-953-2794. Students with training from the Navy or Marines should request an official SMART transcript by calling 877-253-7122. For all other training, request official ACE transcripts by calling 202-939-9434. 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 course work 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. Visit our Web site for additional information: www.mscd.edu/~cooped.
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.


52 SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
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.
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: 1045 Ninth Street Park; 303-556-3290.
SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
The First-Year Program
The First-Year Program is designed to unify and coordinate College efforts to help entering students achieve a successful first year. The program provides advising, course selection guidance and academic monitoring throughout the first year, as well as coordinating academic support services for first-year students. Additionally, the program offers a First-Year Seminar course, XXX 1190, which provides appropriate readings and written work enabling students to discuss and write about current issues including the value of higher education. All first-time MSCD students may enroll in the First-Year Seminar course and other appropriate courses as determined by assessment at entry. The program furnishes an environment where problem solving, creativity and peer interaction are encouraged. For additional information call 303-556-8447.
The Honors Program
The Honors Program provides an academic program for highly motivated students with broad academic interests. The program provides honors sections of General Studies courses and unique interdisciplinary courses. Honors courses are small in order to encourage class participation and a close relationship between students and faculty. Honors classes are designed to promote independent thought and creative inquiry. The director of the Honors Program and the Honors faculty provide academic advising and serve as mentors to students as they consider their post-graduate goals. The ultimate mission of the Honors Program is to create a community of scholars. It sponsors an Honors Club, an annual Honors Conference, and study-abroad courses which allow students to explore ideas outside the classroom. A students who completes 27 semester hours of honors courses, including a thesis, will receive an honors designation on his/her transcript.
An Honors application form may be obtained from the Honors Program Director. Since the Honors Program participates in the Colorado Scholarship Program, any student admitted to the Honors Program is eligible to apply for a scholarship. Additional information on the Honors Program is available by calling 303-556-4865 or by inquiring in West Classroom Building, Room 147.

Individualized Degree Program
The Individualized Degree Program (IDP) offers students the opportunity to design and propose a major, an extended major or a minor to meet specific educational goals when other majors or minors listed in the Catalog do not meet the student’s educational objectives. Either a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree in Individualized Studies may be sought. Each student works with an advisor in the Center for Individualized Learning and with a faculty mentor to develop a proposal for his/ her degree program. A practicing professional in the student’s field of study may also be invited to serve as a community consultant to assist the student and the faculty in the development of the program of study. Because careful and thoughtful planning is essential to designing a coherent and congruent program of study, students are encouraged to begin their proposals early in their enrollment at MSCD. IDP proposals must be submitted no later than the semester prior to the semester the student intends to graduate.
Interested students should contact the Center for Individualized Learning, Central Classroom 106, 303-556-8342, for assistance and for complete information regarding the policies and procedures for the development and approval of an Individualized Studies major or minor. Information sessions are the first step in the process, and are held throughout the year.
Each Individualized Studies major or minor is approved by the department chair from the academic department from which the majority of credit is drawn, the appropriate dean, and the director of the Center for Individualized Learning.
• All requirements that apply to any bachelor’s degree apply to Individualized Studies.
• A grade of C must be earned in each course included in the student’s major or minor, and students must have a GPA of 2.5 before an Individualized Studies program may be approved.
• The title for each student’s program will be Individualized Studies with a concentration in_.
• Majors may not include courses in Level II General Studies and may not include courses with the same prefix as the department from which the majority of credit is drawn for their major, or courses crosslisted with that discipline.
• No more than 30 hours of credit from the School of Business may be included in the student’s degree plan.
• Each Individualized Studies major or minor must include courses that have not yet been completed at the time the proposal is approved. See each IDP option below for the specific number of credits that must be completed after the proposal is approved by the department chair.
Proposals may be submitted for:
• An Individualized Studies MAJOR, which requires a minimum of 40 credit hours, including 21 hours of upper-division credit. Fifteen (15) hours must be completed after the proposal is approved by the department chair. A minor chosen from the Catalog is required.
• An Individualized Studies MINOR, which requires a minimum of 20 credit hours, including 6 hours of upper-division credit. Six (6) hours must be completed after the proposal is approved by the department chair. A major chosen from the Catalog is required. •
• An Individualized Studies EXTENDED MAJOR may be proposed when the student’s field of study requires more in-depth study or courses from multiple disciplines that cannot be accommodated in an IDP major. An extended major requires a minimum of 60 credit hours, including


54 SPECIAL ACADEMIC PROGRAMS
• 27 hours of upper-division credit. Twenty-one (21) hours must be completed after the proposal is approved by the department chair. No minor is required.

GENERAL STUDIES 5
Language and Culture Institute
The Language and Culture Institute was established in 1976 to organize study and travel abroad. The institute currently operates a summer program in Mexico and a winter study and travel program in Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula and in Central America. The institute offers credit through the Modem Languages Department.
THE GENERAL STUDIES PROGRAM
Philosophy of the General Studies Program
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.
State Guaranteed General Education Courses
Certain of MSCD’s General Studies courses are approved as state guaranteed general education courses. This designation means that the course is transferable to general education or to electives at all Colorado public institutions and all undergraduate degree programs. General Studies courses not identified as guaranteed state transfer are also eligible for transfer to other institutions of higher education. Even if a state guaranteed course is selected, students need to select their General Studies courses with care. There is a Colorado core framework that restricts the number of state guaranteed courses that can be taken and applied to general education. In addition, certain statewide articulation agreements require specific General Studies courses. The six credits of composition, ENG 1010 and ENG 1020, will be acceptable anywhere in the state. With the exception of the sciences, students are advised to take only one state guaranteed course in each category below to maximize applicability for general education at another institution. For details go to www.state.co.us/cche/gened/gtpathways/index.pdf. State guaranteed general education courses are designated with a GT for Guaranteed Transfer. The rest of the code indicates the part of the core to which the course applies.

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;


56 GENERAL STUDIES
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:
1. Have an open attitude toward different approaches to problems;
2. Have an informed awareness of the principal human achievements in history, arts and letters, society, and science; and
3. 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 I—Skills
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.

ADDITIONAL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
Multicultural and Senior Experience Course Requirements
In addition to completing the General Studies requirements, a student must complete a three-hour Multicultural course and a three-hour Senior Experience course, or selection of courses, to be awarded a bachelor’s degree from MSCD. The Multicultural course does not require three hours as a separate category and can be taken in the major, minor or as an elective. The rules pertaining to those requirements and the courses that will satisfy those requirements are described below.
Multicultural Graduation Requirements (minimum 3 semester hours)
Multicultural courses are designed to increase students’ appreciation and awareness of the American culture and the diverse cultures which contribute to it. Multicultural educational offerings examine the interactions of values and beliefs, traditions, identities, and cultural contributions of women, and racial and ethnic groups in the United States: African American, Asian American, Hispanic American, and Native American. Students may use the course to satisfy General Studies, major, or minor requirements if the course is approved for that use. This educational concept must be generalized to include a multicultural perspective in view of the origins of the United States and the future responsibilities facing all United States citizens. Multicultural education will help the MSCD academic community realize that the acceptance of diversity can increase creativity and performance potential in positive ways and enrich lives through an understanding of cultural similarities, commonalites, and differences. Through exposure and understanding, fear will be alleviated and appreciation and respect can develop. The guided study of cultural diversity should inform students that the curriculum itself is influenced and created by members of all cultural groups.
Multicultural educational experiences or offerings examine the interactions of values and beliefs, traditions, identities, and contributions of cultural and ethnic minorities in the U.S.: Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans; which may include groups within these minorities characterized by gender, sexual orientation, age or disability.
Transferability of Multicultural Credits
Transfer credits to meet the multicultural requirement will be accepted under the following guidelines:
1. Transferable courses taken at an accredited institution to meet a multicultural or similar diversity requirement will satisfy the MSCD multicultural requirement.
2. Transferable courses equivalent to an existing multicultural course will satisfy the MSCD multicultural requirement. Equivalency will be determined by the department offering the course. Once a course has been approved by a department, it will be given the status of an approved transferable multicultural course. Examples of courses currently meeting this criterion appear in the table below. (Named Examples of Multicultural Equivalencies)


66 GENERAL STUDIES
3. If a transferable course is interdisciplinary, MSCD transfer evaluators will consult with the department(s) where the majority of the content resides.
4. A one-hour deviation in the multicultural requirement will be allowed for courses judged to be similar in content to an existing MSCD multicultural course. Equivalency will be determined by the department offering the multicultural course.
5. Full credit or a one-hour deviation in the multicultural requirement will be allowed when the transferable course meets MSCD’s multicultural definition and course criteria, although a similar course is not offered at MSCD. Example: Macroculture Studies and Asian American Studies - Chinese American or Japanese American.
6. If Transferable courses do not clearly meet MSCD’s multicultural definition, transfer evaluators may request an opinion from the Faculty Senate Curriculum Committee and/or the Academic Affairs Curriculum Office. Should the question not be resolved, the student may follow the appeal process as set forth in the MSCD Transfer Guide.

Senior Year Assessment Examinations and Other Activities
In their senior year, students may be required to participate in an assessment of their 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.


GENERAL STUDIES 6
Senior Experience Graduation Requirements (minimum 3 semester hours)
The Senior Experience course provides a culmination of the undergraduate experience, allowing students to synthesize their learning, using critical analysis and logical thinking. Students may use the course to satisfy major or minor requirements if the course is approved for that use. Students should consult with their advisor and check prerequisites. Students must complete a Senior Experience course at the end of the undergraduate program and must take the course or courses at MSCD. Senior Experience courses have the following minimal prerequisites: satisfaction of all Level I and Level 11 General Studies course requirements and senior standing. In some cases students may need to take two courses to satisfy the requirement.

ACADEMIC POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
Semester Hours Credit
Course credit is based on units designated 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 semester 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.
Declaring/Changing a Major
Applicants to Metropolitan State College of Denver may indicate their intended major on the MSCD Application for Admission. 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. 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 Admissions Office.
Curriculum, Advising and Program Planning (CAPP)
CAPP produces a Compliance Report that is an advising tool to be used by students and their advisors throughout the students’ academic career at MSCD. Students with declared majors and/or minors should discuss their progress toward completion of their major (minor) program with their faculty advisor. They should have a CAPP Compliance Report run no later than the start of the senior year. CAPP Compliance Reports can be run in the student’s major department or by logging on to MetroConnect (http://metroconnect.mscd.edu). Approved adjustments to the CAPP Compliance Report should be submitted as soon as possible by the department to the Office of the Registrar. Degree-seeking students must apply for degree candidacy by completing an Application for Graduation in the Office of the Registrar at the start of their final semester.
Selection of Catalog for Degree 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 degree catalog in effect while they are enrolled at MSCD unless they are transferring from a regionally accredited Colorado community college, provided that the degree 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


72 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
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 degree catalog selected does not predate the current catalog by more than three years.
• The degree 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.
Graduation
Degree-seeking students formally declare their degree candidacy by filing an Application for Graduation with the Office of the Registrar just prior to their anticipated semester of graduation, but no later than the deadline stipulated in the Academic Calendar section of this Catalog and on MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu/academic/acal.htm). The Application for Graduation should be filed only by students who intend to complete all degree requirements by the end of the upcoming semester and should be filed in consultation with the student’s major department. If a student does not graduate, another Application for Graduation must be submitted for a subsequent semester.
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. Diplomas may be withheld because of indebtedness to the College. 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. Summer graduates are invited to attend the following fall commencement. For commencement information call 303-556-6226, or at www.mscd.edu.
Transcript of Records
An official transcript is a certified copy of a student’s permanent academic record. Transcripts are free. You can order transcripts by logging on to MetroConnect (http://metroconnect.mscd.edu). There is a charge for faxed transcripts. 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. Copies of transcripts from other institutions that are on file in the Registrar’s Office will be issued upon signed request by the student. Students from other institutions taking MSCD courses under the state college system or interinstitutional registration programs must request transcripts from their home institution.
Falsified Transcripts and Diplomas
Altering, modifying, tampering with, or in any way falsifying an official Metropolitan State College of Denver transcript or diploma is a crime. The College has implemented multiple measures to detect such conduct. To protect the integrity and value of a Metro State degree, the Attorney General will vigorously prosecute through the criminal justice system those who commit these crimes.
In addition, students found responsible for falsifying an official MSCD transcript or diploma will face a College judicial hearing and appropriate sanctions may be imposed, including suspension, dismissal, and loss of credit, which could affect the student’s permanent record.


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 7
.
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. Due to wide variation in definition and interpretation of class rank, by policy the College does not rank its students or graduates. Recognition of students includes: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 President’s Honor List carries the names of students who, at the time of computation, have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.85 or higher. The Provost’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. Honors will only be computed three times in a student’s academic life at the College. Posting of the award occurs within the first two weeks of the following semester. Questions should be directed to the Office of Academic Affairs at 303-556-3040.
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

CL - College Level Examination Program (CLEP)
EX - Credit by Exam
I- Incomplete
NC - No Credit
NR - Not Reported. No grade was reported by the faculty by the deadline to submit grades. 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. Students who receive a “NR” notation on their final grade report may be severely impacted. Financial aid, enrollment status, veterans’ status and probation/suspension depend on students receiving all their grades.
P - Pass
PL - Portfolio Assessment
PP - PEP Exam
S - Satisfactory (limited to internships, practicums, field experience courses and workshops)
SA - Study Abroad
SE - Satisfactory/Education (limited to ECE 4390, EDS 4290, EDU 4190, EDU 4590,
SED 4190 and SED 4500)
SN - Study Abroad - no credit
U - Unsatisfactory (equals “F” and computed in GPA)
UE - Unsatisfactory/Education (equals “F” and computed in GPA)
I (Incomplete)
The Incomplete (I) notation may be assigned when a student, who was achieving satisfactory progress in a course and who had completed most class assignments, is unable to take the final examination and/or did not complete all 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 year, the “I” notation will convert to an “F.”
Graduating seniors may not graduate with an “I” on their MSCD academic record if:
• The course in which the “I” was assigned is required for graduation, or
• a D or F assigned for that course would result in an overall GPA less than 2.00.
The “1” notation may not be given for a self-paced course. If a student does not complete a self-paced course within the semester s/he enrolled in the course, s/he must re-enroll in the course in order to complete it.
If a student receives an “I” in an online class, the instructor should contact Instructional Technology who will add the student to the online course roster so that the student will be able to logon to the course. This must be done by the instructor each semester the student continues to work on the course.
In order for an “I” to be changed to a letter grade, the incomplete work must be completed for the course for which the student originally registered. The student should not re-enroll for the same course unless his/her intent is to retake the entire course. In this case, the student will pay tuition and fees.


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 7
NC/Withdrawal (No Credit)
The No Credit (NC) notation is not a grade. It may indicate withdrawal from the course or course repetition. (The NC should not be confused with a schedule change during the first 12 days of the fall or spring term [8 days for the summer term]. During this period a student may drop a course, and it will not appear on the student’s academic record.)
The “NC” notation may be used in self-paced courses to indicate that the student has not completed the self-paced course(s) and requires additional time to increase the student’s proficiency. In this case, to earn credit the student must re-register for and pay tuition and fees for the course in a subsequent term. Deadlines as described in this section apply.
• The following minimal standards shall be required throughout the College and shall be a part of 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. If attendance is a part of the grading criteria, that policy should be included in the individual faculty member’s class policies and outline and distributed to students on the first day of class.
• During this period, students may request an NC ONLY online at MetroConnect.
• Students reducing their course load between the beginning of the fifth and the end of the tenth week of full term classes during fall and spring semesters may receive an “NC” notation for each course provided faculty approval is granted and indicated on the request form by the faculty member’s signature or the department chair’s signature in the case of the absence of the faculty member who is the instructor of record. NC request forms with the instructor’s signature for full term classes are due to the Office of the Registrar by the deadline noted in the class schedule for any given term. Part-of-term NC deadlines are available from the Office of the Registrar or the Office of Student Accounts.
• 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). Such additional restrictions should be included in the instructor’s class outline and policies which are distributed to all students on the first day of class.
• Student requests for an “NC” notation in a given course will not be granted after the tenth week of the fall and spring semester or after the published date for summer term for full-term classes (or after the part-of-term deadlines for requesting an NC with the signature of the faculty member) unless the request is approved by the faculty member, the department chair and the dean. The “I” notation may be used during this period, provided the conditions specified in the “I” explanation above apply.
• Proportional time frames are applied for part-of-term courses, weekend courses, workshops and summer terms. These deadlines are available from the Office of the Registrar or the Office of student Accounts. Deadlines for full-term summer classes are published in the class schedule.
• 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. If attendance is a part of the grading criteria, that policy should be included in the individual faculty member’s class policies and outline and distributed to students on the first day of class.
Students who withdraw from a course or courses because of the death of an immediate family member, serious illness or medical emergency, or employment changes beyond the control of the student may file a Tuition and Fees Appeal Form through the Office of Student Accounts. In these cases, the student is still required to obtain an NC for each course s/he is withdrawing from according to the guidelines


76 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
above. If the student is incapacitated and unable to contact his/her instructors), the student or her/his representative, may contact the Office of the Registrar, the academic department chair, or the dean for assistance in contacting the faculty and requesting withdrawal as indicated by the NC notation.
Computing Grade Point Average/ 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 number of quality points by the number of semester hours attempted.
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, SE, SN.
Pass-Fail Option
The pass/fail option encourages students to venture out of their major and minor fields and thereby broaden their educational experience. A student must declare interest in the pass/fail option no later than the 12th day of classes for fall and spring, the eighth day of classes for summer or the second day of classes for parts-of-term of any semester (see the Academic Calendar on MSCD’s Web site (http:// www.mscd.edu/academic/acal.htm) for specific deadlines) by contacting the Office of the Registrar and completing the Request for Pass/Fail Option. Once approved, the request for the pass/fail option is irrevocable. A student who requests the option and later is declared ineligible will receive written notification from the Office of the Registrar.
Students who have completed at least one MSCD course with at least a 2.00 cumulative GPA may choose to be evaluated for a certain course on a pass/fail basis rather than by a letter grade. Major, minor, General Studies and other courses required for a degree and courses 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 pass/fail courses is 18 credit hours earned in no more than six courses and limited to one course per semester or part-of-term. Course work must be graded to determine if it is pass or fail.
The “pass” grade (P) has no effect on the GPA; the “fail” grade is equivalent to the grade of “F.” The “pass” grade (P) is equivalent to the grade of D or better. Pass/fail courses are under the same “NC” guidelines and deadlines as other courses in the institution whether those guidelines and deadlines are established college wide or by individual schools or departments
The instructor will assign and record the pass/fail grade on the final grade list that identifies students electing and eligible for pass/fail grading. Some institutions do not accept credit in transfer for courses in which a “pass” grade is given. Therefore, students who plan to transfer or take graduate work should determine whether the institution of their choice would accept the credit before registering for courses under the pass/fail option. Additionally, it is the student’s responsibility to ensure that the course is not in their major, minor or General Studies.
Repeated Courses (Last Grade Stands)
A student may repeat any course taken at Metropolitan State College of Denver regardless of the original grade earned. Only the credit and the grade for the last attempt of the course will remain on the student’s official academic record. The grade(s) for all prior attempts will be changed to the “NC” notation unless a permanent F has been assigned. Repeated courses must carry the same title, course number and semester hours. To effect the grade change, the student must re-register and pay the full tuition for the class in question, complete the class earning a letter grade, and complete the Last Grade Stands form in the Office of the Registrar. Otherwise, the grade change will be made administratively prior to graduation. Credit duplication involving transfer, interinstitutional, or state college system courses may be treated differently from the above procedures (see number 4 below). A FAILING COURSE GRADE ASSIGNED AS A RESULT OF ACADEMIC DISHONESTY IS CONSIDERED A PERMANENT “F” AND CANNOT BE CONSIDERED UNDER THIS POLICY. A student may not repeat a course and


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 7
request “last grade stands” after the completion of an MSCD degree that includes the course in question. Specifically:
1. In all cases except for grades assigned for academic dishonesty the grades of all but the last entry of the particular course will be changed to an “NC” (no credit, withdrawal) notation. The NC notation does not affect the credit total and GPA.
2. The determination of course equivalency will be made by the Office of the Registrar in consultation with the academic department.
3. If the student does not request that the previous grade(s) of a course be changed to an “NC” after the course is repeated, the grade change will be made administratively prior to graduation. The Last Grade Stands Policy cannot be used after the student graduates from the College for courses taken prior to the date the degree is awarded.
4. Students who have earned a degree at MSCD and subsequently take additional courses or work toward a second degree may use last grade stands for courses for which the original enrollment is after the first degree is awarded.
5. The same policy is applied when a course taken at another institution and transferred to MSCD is later repeated at MSCD. The transferred credit is then revoked.
6. An exception to this policy occurs when a student takes a course at MSCD, then repeats the course at another institution and returns to or is still in attendance at MSCD. In this case, since the course is not repeated on the MSCD records, the MSCD course will not be changed to an “NC,” but rather, the transfer credit will be disallowed.
7. The Last Grade Stands policy applies only to MSCD courses. Courses taken under the Interinstitutional/ Consortium or “pooled” programs do not qualify for consideration under this policy. However, this policy does apply to a UCD course if repeated through the MSCD/UCD-pooled program.
8. Courses repeated prior to the summer quarter of 1971 are not affected by this Last Grade Stands policy. A grade in a course taken prior to the summer quarter, 1971 and repeated after summer, 1971 may be changed to an “NC” notation with the use of the grade exception form.
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 fourth 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 current Student Handbook. The handbook may be obtained from the Office of Student Services. All decisions of the Grade Appeal Committee are final.
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.
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.


78 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES
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 re-admitted 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.
WITHDRAWAL/EMERGENCY
Students who must withdraw from all classes during a semester due to a serious personal or medical emergency should contact the Student Accounts Office, CN 110, 303-556-6188 for assistance and information on emergency withdrawal procedures.
Students who must withdraw from all classes during a semester due to a military or state call to action should contact Veterans’ Services, CN 105, 303-556-2993 for assistance.

5. Maintain academic ethics and academic honesty.
6. Pay the tuition and fees and be officially registered in order to attend a class.
7. Initiate an investigation by contacting the department chair if they believe their academic rights have been violated.
Academic Misconduct
Academic dishonesty or misconduct is a serious offense at the College because it diminishes the quality of scholarship and the learning experience for everyone on campus. In order to encourage and foster academic excellence, the College expects students to conduct themselves in accordance with certain generally accepted norms of scholarship and professional behavior. Because of this expectation, the College does not condone any form of academic misconduct.
Academic misconduct includes, but is not limited to, plagiarism, cheating, fabrication, multiple submissions, collaboration, or facilitation of academic dishonesty, or knowingly or recklessly furnishing false information to the College. Academic misconduct is an unacceptable activity in scholarship, and is in conflict with academic and professional ethics and morals. Consequently, students who are found to have engaged in some form of academic misconduct may be subject to:
1. Reduction in grade, including a zero or an “F” or permanent “F” on the work in question.
2. Other academic penalties as outlined in the professor’s course requirements and expectations, and/or syllabus.
3. Disciplinary action and/or other sanctions that will be determined on the basis of the seriousness of the offense.
4. Any combination thereof.
Generally, a student’s intentions will not be the primary consideration in the determination of whether academic misconduct has occurred. A student’s intentions will usually be considered only during the process of deciding on the appropriate sanctions or penalties.
Definitions of academic misconduct include, but are not limited to:
Plagiarism is the act of appropriating another’s work. This includes, but is not limited to the following:
1. The written, artistic, or musical composition of another; or the ideas, language, or symbols of same and passing them off as the product of one’s own work.
2. The lifting of a substantial or essential portion of another’s work.
3. The unacknowledged use of materials prepared by another person or agency, including Web sites, that may or may not be engaged in the selling of term papers or other academic material.


82 POLICIES AND PROCEDURES

Sexual Harassment
Sexual harassment is a form of discrimination based on sex. It is prohibited by law and College policy. In the educational context, sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome sexual advance, request for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when:
a. submission to such conduct is made either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of an individual’s status in a course, program, activity, or educational evaluation
b. submission to or rejection of such conduct is used as the basis for educational decisions affecting that individual
c. such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s academic performance or educational experience, or of creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive educational environment
Charges of sexual harassment can be based on a wide variety of behaviors, such as repeated derogatory sexual remarks, negotiation for sexual favors as a quid pro quo for grades or recommendations or threatened or actual sexual assault. These and similar behaviors seriously undermine the teaching and learning environment and can be grounds for disciplinary action. Sexual harassment should be reported to the Office of Equal Opportunity at 303-556-2939. Sexual assaults should be reported to the Auraria Campus Police at 303-556-3271.
Written policies addressing these issues in greater detail are available from the Office of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action in Central Classroom (CN) 315 or call 303-556-2939.


POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 8:
Amorous Relationships Involving Students and College Employees
Members of the College community, whether faculty members or administrative staff, put academic and professional trust and ethics at risk when they engage in amorous romantic/sexual relationships with people whose academic and/or professional benefits and opportunities are, or appear to be, subject to their authority, supervision or influence. Accordingly, the College prohibits such relationships, as well as any attempt to initiate or engage in such relationships. Any faculty member or administrator who engages in, or attempts to engage in, an amorous relationship with a student or subordinate shall report any such relationship or attempt to the EEO Officer.
Sexual harassment of an employee or student will lead to disciplinary action, in the case of an employee, such discipline may include termination. In case of students, such discipline may include expulsion.
Class Attendance
Attendance during the first week of class is required. It contributes greatly to teaching and learning. Some departments determine a student’s enrollment in a course based upon attendance during the first week of class. Consult the department for more information about the attendance policy for the class that you are attending. Students who drop classes are financially responsible for those classes in accordance with the withdrawal/refund policies stated on MSCD’s Web site (http://www.mscd.edu).
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 success in a course. 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 MSCD Student Handbook.
Final Examinations
It is the general policy of the College to require final examinations of all students in all courses in which they are registered for credit, with the possible exception of seminar courses or special projects.

Economics Degree Program
MSCD’s economics program is not a business program and economics majors do not have the same requirements as other majors in the School of Business. For example, economics majors do not need to take the business core nor the special General Studies required of business majors. Graduates will receive a bachelors of arts degree instead of a bachelor of science degree. Consequently, the economics major requirements are not described in this section but can be found on page 107 of this Catalog.
Finance Degree Program
The finance program prepares students for careers that concentrate on the process of managing the funds of individuals, businesses and governments. Career opportunities are available in the fields of managerial finance, personal financial planning and the financial services industry. The field of managerial finance deals with managing the financial affairs of businesses and governments and includes such activities as budgeting, financial forecasting, cash management, credit administration, investment analysis and funds management.

COL LEGE LEVE L EXAM I NA TIO N P RO GRAM (CLEP) The College Level Examination Porgrrun (CLEP) consists of a series of national standardized examinations. They are desi g ned to evaluat e nonaccredited college-level learnin g in order to award credit for successful d emonstrat ion of this knowl edge. Based on the results of one or more of the CLEP examinations that are accepted at MSCD, the College may award up to 30 credits toward the General Studies requirements. Thus, students may test o ut of many of the traditional courses required during the freshman year. Stu-dents are advised to check with their major departments for information o n specific General Studies requirements that may not be met through t h e use of CLEP examinations. MSCD does not allow CLEP to be used for ENG I 020, Freshman Composition: Analysis, Research and Documenta tion . No more than 60 credits may be earne d through all the approved CLEP examinations.

50 ALTERNATIVE CREDIT OPTIONS Departmental Cre dit b y Exa mination A department may grant a student credit for college courses for which the student requests and passes appropriate examinations. The charge for each credit hour requested is one-half the in-state tuition for one credit hour, and must be paid prior to taking the examination. A maximum of 30 se me ste r hour s of credit may be awarded through departmental credit by examination. Credit through departmental examination is based on knowledge equiva l ent to a regular course offered by the Co lle ge. Omnibus numbered courses are excluded. Permission for departmenta l credit by exa minati o n mu st be obta ined in advance from the instructor giving the examination , the department chair and the appropriate dean. To earn credit by examination, a student must be currently enrolled in good standing in a d egree or certif ica t e program at the College. Cre dit by examina tion may not b e counted as part of the las t 12 credit hour s of a degree program unless it is approved by the Board on Academic Standards Exceptions (BASE) . Applicat i ons for submitting a r e qu est to BASE are available in the dean ' s offices in eac h school. I f a student has registered for a higher numbered course in a sequence , the exam for a prerequisite for that higher-numbered course must be compl eted within the first three weeks of the semester. Credit by examination for a course which is a prerequisite for a course already comp l eted will not be grant ed unless approved by BASE. Examinations cannot be taken to raise grad es , to remove fai l ures, or to remove "NC," "SP ," " 1," or "CC" notations. Credit by examination is not applicable toward academic residency requirements. Credit by examination can not be obtained for a course in which a student ha s been enro lled at MSCD or at another regionally accredited college or university unless approved by BASE. C redit by examina tion will not be g r an t ed for co u rses attende d as a l istener, v i s itor or a uditor . Examinations for credit will be taken at a time specified by the department. A grade equivalent to "A" or "B" must be attained on the examinatio n in order to receive credit, but credits so earned for the course will be recorded wit hout a grade on the student's permanent record and are not considered in computing college grade point averages. The hours gra nt ed for credi t by exam are not i ncluded as a part of the s tudent ' s se mester enroll m e nt. The credit will appear on the transcript for the semester in which the examination was taken, but the hours do not count as part of the student's to tal enrollment for the purposes of financial aid or any other purpose predicated on total hours of enrollment for a given se m ester. Credit by examination will be posted after a student has completed eight semester hours of credit at Metropolitan State College of Denver, and after an evaluation of all transfer credit has been com pleted . The application form will be maintained in th e student's tile. No record of failures on such examinations will be entered on the student ' s permanent record. Departmental examinations attempte d for course credit under these guidelines may not b e repeated. Applications for departmental credit by examination are availab l e at the Center for Indi vidualized Learning, (C I 06, 303-556-8342) and from the Office of the Registrar (C I OS). Portfolio Assessment Students may apply for credit for collegel eve l learning gained through experience by preparing and submitting a prior l earning portfolio . Credit is awarded on the basis of a careful assessmer.t 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 C l ass room I 06, 303-556-8342. Portfolio assess ment may be used to apply for credit for specific co ur se listed in the Catalog. Students may also apply for credit for omnibus courses throu g h p ortfolio assess ment with the permission of the appropriate academic department. Applicants for credit through port folio assessment will generally be required to take EDS 2680-1 , The Portfolio Development Workshop, wh ich is offered as a correspondence course .

PAGE 53

Policies that govern credit for prior learnin g options apply to credit awarded through the portfolio pro cess. The charge for each credit hour requested is one-half the in-state tuition for one credit hour. Contact the Cente r for Individu alized Learning for assistance and further information at 303-556-8342 , Central Classroom I 06. Information sessions about p ortfolio assessment and other credit for prior learning options are held on a regular basis, and information is available on our Web site: www.mscd.edu/-cil/ . Credit for Military Training and Other Training Programs Military training and ot h er educational programs, including DANTES , that have been assessed for col lege credit by the American Council on Education (ACE) will be evaluated by the Office of Admis sions for tran sfer credit at MSCD. For formal military training, copies of training certificates and a copy of the DD-214 or DD-295 should be submitted to the Office of Admissions. In addition, students with Army training should request that an official AARTS transcript be mailed directly to the Office of A dmi ssions by calling 866-297-4427; those with Air Force training should request an officia l Commu nity Co lleg e of the Air Force tr a n scr ipt by cal lin g 334-953-2794 . Students with training from the Navy or Marines should request an official SMART transcript by calling 877-253-7122. For all other train ing, r eq ue st offic ial ACE transcripts by calling 202-939-9434. Credit limit is 30 semester hours. Cooperative Education The Coo per ative Educat i on Internship Center places students in work experiences related to their aca demic major. The purpose of the internships is to integrate academ i c training with actual work experi ence. This combination allows students to make realistic career decisions , gain valuable work experi ence, obtain recommendations for graduate school and earn money to help defray college expenses . Students work in l arge 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 sa l aries are not avai l able , volunteer internship placements are offered to help students gain esse ntial work exper i e n ce. Co-op internship placements are available in most academic majors and minors. Students must complete 30 semester hours of college course work with a minimum 2.50 GPA and have a declared major to be elig ible for registration with co-op. No fees are charged to the stude nt o r employer for participa tion in the program, and each student's interests and job requirements a r e discussed individually with a professional coordinator. Students may choose from three different work schedules based on the academic calendar. The alter nating plan provides full-time periods of work every ot h er semester with int ervening semesters spent in full-time study. The parallel schedu l e 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 exper i ence that lasts for no more than o n e 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 appl i cation must be approved by a facu l ty member from the department in which credit is t o be granted. No more than I 5 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 Genera l Studies requirements. Addi tional departmental restrictions may apply to certain majors.

Individualized Degree Program The Individualized Degree Program (IDP) offers students the opportun it y to design and propose a major, an extended major or a minor to meet specific educational g oals when other majors or minors liste d in the Catalog do n ot meet the student ' s educational objective s . Either a bachelor of arts or a bachelor of science degree in Individualized Studies may be sought. Each student works with an advi so r in the Cente r for Individualiz ed Learning and with a faculty mentor to develop a proposal for his / her degree program. A practicing professional in the student ' s field of study may also be invited to serve as a community consultant to assist the student and the faculty in the development of the program of study. Because careful and thoughtful planning is essential to de s igning a coherent and congruent program of study , students are encouraged to be gin their proposal s early in their enrollment at MSCD. IDP proposals must be s ubmitted no later than the semester prior to the semester the student intends to graduate. Interested students should contact the Center for Individualized Learning, Central Classroom I 06 , 303556 -834 2, for assistance and for complete information regarding the policies and procedures for the deve l opment and approva l of an Individualized Studies major or minor. Information sessions are the first step in the process, and are held throughout the year. Each I ndividualized Studies major or minor is approved by the department chair from the academic department from which the majority of credit is drawn , the appropriate dean , and the director of the Cente r for Individu alized Learning. • All requirements that apply to any bachelor's degree apply to Individualized Studies. • A g rad e ofC must be earned in eac h course included in the s tudent ' s major or minor , and student s must have a GPA of2.5 before an Indi v idu alized Studies program may be approved . • The title for each student ' s program will be Indi v iduali ze d Studi es with a co n ce ntrati o n in __ . • Majors may not include courses in Level II General Studi e s and may not include courses with t h e same prefix as the department from which the majority of cred it is drawn for their major , or courses crosslisted with that discipline. o more than 30 hour s of credit from the School of Business may be included in the student's degree plan. • Each Individualized Studie major or minor must include courses that have not yet been com pleted at the time the proposal is approved. See each IDP option below for the specific number of credits that must be completed after the propo sal is approved by the department chair. Proposals may be s ubmitt ed for: An Indi vidualized Studi e s MAJOR, which requires a minimum of 40 credit hours , including 21 hours of upper-division credit.

*In order to receiv e General Studies credit, both BIO I 080 and I 090 must be successful l y completed. This is true also for State Guaranteed General Education credit. **CHE II 00 and CHE 1150 must be successfully completed to receive General Studies credit. ***Successful completion of CHE 1850 and e ither CHE 1800 or 1810 will result in 6 hours Natural Science General Studies credit. Successful completion of all three courses will result in I 0 hours of General Studies credit. CHE 1800 i s a prerequisite for CHE 1 850. CHE 1850 has a corequisite ofCHE 1810 . • A one-hour deviation in the Gen e r al Studies Natura l Science requirement may be al l owed , provided the student has comp l eted at least 33 semester hours of General Studies courses . Pl ease note: " me" im/icates that the course is al so approved as a Multicultural course; "ao" indi cat es that the course i s available online. ADDITIONAL GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS Multicultural and Senior Experience Course Requirements In addition t o completing the General Studies requirements , a student must complete a three-hour Mul ticultural course and a three-hour Senior Experience course, or selection of courses, to be awarded a bach e lor 's degree from MSCD. The Multicultural course does not require three hours as a separate cat egory and can be taken in the major, minor or as an elective . The rules pertaining to those requirements and the courses that will satisfY those requirements are described below. Multicultural Graduation Requirements (minimum 3 semester hours) Multicultural courses are designed to increase students ' appreciation and awareness of the American culture and the diverse cu l tures which contribute to it. Multicultural educational offerings examine the interaction s of values and beliefs, traditions , identities, and cultural contributions of women, and racial and ethnic grou p s in the United States: African American, Asian American , Hispanic American , and Native American. Students may use the course to satisfy General Studies, major, or minor require ments i f the course is approved for that use. This educational concept must be generalized to include a multicultural perspective in view of th e origins of the Un it ed States a nd the future responsibilities facing al l Un ited States citizens. Multicultural education will help the MSCD academic community realiz e that the acceptance of diversity can increase creativity and performance potential in positive ways and enrich liv es through an understanding of cultura l similarities, commonalites , and differences. Through exposure and understanding, fear will be alleviated and appreciat i on and respect can develop. The g uid ed st udy of cultura l diversity s h ou l d inform s tud ents that the curricu lum itself is influenced and created by members of all cultural groups. Multicultural educationa l experiences or offerings examine the interactions of values and beliefs, tra dition s, identities, and contributions of cultura l and ethn i c minorities in the U.S.: Native Americans, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Asian Americans; which may include groups within these minorities characterized by gender , sexual orientation, age or disability. Transferability of Multicultural Credits Transfe r credits to meet the multicultural requirement will be accepted under the following guide lin es: I . Transferable courses taken at an accredited institution to meet a multicultural or similar diversity requirement will sa tisfY the MSCD mu l ticultural requ i rement. 2 . Transferable courses equivalent to an existing multicu ltur al course will satisfY the MSCD multi c ultural r eq uirem e nt. Equiva l ency will be determined by the depar tm ent offering the course . Once a course has been approved by a department, it will be given the status of an approved transfer able multicultural course. Examp l es of courses currently meeting this criterion appear in the table below. (Named Examples of Multicultural Equivalencies)

A n exception t o this policy occurs when a student t a kes a course at MSC D , the n r epeats the course at a nother ins tituti on and returns to or i s still in a ttendanc e a t MSCD. In this case, since the course i s not r e p eated on the MSC D r ecords , the MSC D course will n o t b e changed t o an " NC," but r ather, the tran fer credit w ill be disallowed. 7. The Last G rade S t ands polic y applies only t o MSC D courses.

Further , this certificate is designed for industry peFs onnel who work with the management and exp l oitation of natural resources , such as petroleum and water resources , as well as for degree-seeking students interested in environmenta l s cience , geology, land use planning , and related fields . I ncreasing operating cost s and d ec reas ing budgets for hiring profess i onal geolog i sts, geophysi cists , and petroleum eng ineers has produced a demand for mid-level persons trained in petroleum technology. Using the late s t computer methods, these g eotechnicians or " geotechs" typically perform data searches, generate maps and cross sections, gather and organize well data , and perform numerous other tasks in support of exploration and development efforts. By some es timat es, the combi n ation of a geolog i st with a geotechnician will result in a synergy that produce s more than twice the output of either working alone . The result i s a s ignificant increa s e in productivity. Admissions Requirement s : I. There are no spe cial admis sion requirements for s tudents seeking GT certification . 2. All student s mus t take the prerequisite courses or provide evidence to the in tructor that they have equivalent training before they can enroll in certificate courses. Some courses in the certificate are prerequisite s to other courses in the certificate. Prerequisite courses that are not listed as cour ses required for the certificate are: GEL I 0 I 0-4, G e n e ral G eo l ogy; CMS ICS I 0 I 0-3, Intr o du c ti o n t o C o mput e r s ; GEG 1220-2, Map Use; and GIS 2250-3 , Intr o du c ti o n l o G eographi c Informati o n Syst e m s . Completio n Requirements: All students seeking GTS certification must maint ain a 3.0 o r above in the certifica t e p rogram. Geo technology and its applications require a high degree of discipline and commitment. The courses required for the certificate a r e very challenging with regard to the theoretical and practical subjects. They require a significant a mount of time devoted to h ands-o n and laboratory exercises. Students successfully completing this certificate can take pride in their accomplishment .
