Credit by Examination Credit for certain courses may be established through a proficiency exam. Students pursuing credit by exam should not register for the course in which they hope to establish credit. In addition, students should not have taken the course, or its equivalent, previously either at CCBC or another school. Full-time students receiving financial aid should note that opting for credit by exam may influence and reduce their financial aid awards. Additionally, students must enroll for and successfully complete a minimum of 15 credits of program coursework at CCBC in order to have the credits earned through examination placed on their transcripts. The credits will appear on the transcript designated “Credit by Examination.” Students who have received credit by examination for a course are permitted to subsequently register for the course. However, the last grade issued will be the only grade included in their cumulative quality point average. For these purposes, the “last grade” refers to A, B, C, D, or F only.

College Level Examination Program (CLEP) The College Level Examination Program of the College Entrance Examination Board is recognized by CCBC. This program enables individuals who have acquired education in a non-traditional way to become eligible for credit consideration on the basis of performance on the College Level Examination. In accepting CLEP credits, credits shall be limited to the selective specialized subject area examinations and not include the general examinations except for the General Examination English Composition with Essay. The College will accept the minimum cut-off score recommended by the American Council on Education (ACE) for awarding credit. Although CLEP examinations are not offered at CCBC, they are available at several local colleges and universities for a fee. Students interested in taking CLEP examinations should contact the Counseling Office. Any student who desires to transfer subject examination CLEP credits to CCBC should contact the Dean of Enrollment Services. 12

Credit Acceptance United States Armed Forces Institute (USAFI) The USAFI program offers college-level courses to military personnel. Using the guidelines established by the American Council on Education, advanced standing and college credit allowance for USAFI courses are determined on an individual basis by CCBC.

Credit for Life Experience Through the Credit for Life Experience program, students may be authorized by the Dean of Enrollment Services to substitute life experience for formal classes related to their program of study. Students should not have taken the course(s) for which they are applying to receive life experience credit, either at CCBC or another school. Additionally, students must enroll for and successfully complete a minimum of fifteen credits of program coursework at CCBC in order to have the credits earned through life experience placed on their transcript. Students who have received credit for life experience are permitted to subsequently register for the course. See the Dean of Enrollment Services for assistance and advice. To be considered for credit for life experience, the student must compile a portfolio that will remain the property of the College. A portfolio should be completed for each class in the college catalog that is to be considered for credit for life experience. When compiling the portfolio, the best place to start is with the master syllabus for the particular course for which the request is being made. If requesting credit for more than one course, the student must detail what experience applies to each course. In addition to the course content, a close review of the objectives for the course will help coordinate experience with courses. The portfolio must demonstrate experience in the content field and the attainment of course objectives. Documentation that is acceptable in support of the request: • A narrative that outlines the case clearly and in detail by paralleling course objectives with personal experiences • A chart that parallels personal experience with course objectives • Job descriptions • Employer evaluations • Letters of documentation from employers and colleagues • Documents that were produced by way of work assignments or personal initiative • Certificates of completion or documentation for any relevant training together with the content of the training and the number of hours of training • Résumé The portfolio should be submitted to the Dean of Enrollment Services. The Dean of Enrollment Services will review the portfolio in conjunction with Division Directors and faculty and issue a decision. The decision of the Dean of Enrollment Services is final.

Residency

Residency

International Students

The Board of Trustees has established the following policy regarding student residency:

International students must pay out-of-state tuition and fees. Reclassification of residency does not apply to international students.

The burden of proof for establishing residency or a change in residency rests with the student. Residency refers to domicile, which is the place where one permanently resides. In order to establish domicile, a student must reside in Beaver County prior to registering. Any student who changes residence during a semester will not have his tuition adjusted during that semester, but may be entitled to such adjustment the following semester. A minor (under age 18) is presumed to live at the address of his/ her parents or guardian. A student is presumed a resident named in the certified statement of residence on the admissions application. Establishing an address for the purpose of attending college does not establish domicile. Where a student permanently lives (“residency”) determines his or her tuition charges at Community College of Beaver County and are defined as follows:

In-County Students Any permanent resident of Beaver County is classified as a “resident” student and is eligible for in-county tuition rates.

In-State Students To be considered a Pennsylvania resident, a student must maintain continuous residence in the state for a period of 12 months prior to registration as a student. The tuition rate for in-state students is double the in-county rate.

Out-of-State Students The tuition for an out-of-state student is triple that of the incounty rate.

A student may appeal residency classification by filing a written petition to the Dean of Enrollment Services for committee review. If a student is not satisfied with the decision made by CCBC, the student may take a written appeal to the Office of the Secretary of Education, 333 Market Street, Harrisburg, PA 17126-0333. The decision made by the Secretary is final.

Proof of Residency At the time of class registration and tuition payment, all students are required to show “proof of residency” in the form of: • • •

Procedure for Reclassification of Residency Prior to registration, students whose tuition would be affected by a change in residency must present proof of actual address to the Information and Registration Center. If a student’s registration has already been processed and the tuition has been calculated, no changes will be permitted to the student name/address information file until after the refund period.

Penalties for Misrepresenting Residency Applicants claiming residency in Beaver County are required to provide validated proof. Fraud is a felony punishable in the criminal court under Pennsylvania Law. Air Traffic Control, Professional Pilot, Police Technology, and Nursing applicants should take special note because of future licensing procedures. Should a student misrepresent his or her residency status, the following actions will be taken by the College: • • •

14

Pennsylvania driver’s license Proof of payment of local wage tax or school tax If required, other documents determined and approved by the Dean of Enrollment Services

The student’s account will be adjusted and the student will be required to pay the corrected amount. If the student refuses to pay the corrected amount, the student will be administratively withdrawn from present classes and be prevented from attending future classes. The release of grades, diplomas, or degrees will be prohibited until the student’s corrected account is paid in full.

Registration

Registration Students are expected to register for classes before the first day of the semester they wish to attend. After filing for admission and completing required placement tests, students may register for classes by contacting the Counseling Office to discuss class choices. At the time of class registration, all students are required to show “proof of residency”.

Placement Testing Placement tests are a series of short exams in math, English and reading, which are taken before registering for classes in the first semester. Placement tests help counselors match students’ abilities with their first English or math classes at CCBC. Students who do not place into college level courses in math and English must enroll and successfully pass the developmental courses in those subjects before enrolling in college coursework. Students may not have to take the complete test if: • They already have a college degree. • They have already taken college level English or math courses and received a grade of “C” or better. • They have transient clearance from their home institution allowing them to enroll in specific courses at CCBC. • They scored 450/Critical Reading, 450/Writing, or 450/Math on the SAT exam within the past five years. • They scored 19/Reading, 18/English, or 22/Math on the ACT exam within the past five years. Students must provide official transcripts in order to be excused from taking all or part of the test.

College Success Course/First Year Seminar

Every FT or PT student entering CCBC who enrolls in a credit-bearing program and who places into two or more developmental courses shall be required to enroll in a three-credit College Success Strategies course in his or her first semester. The successful completion of this course shall be a requirement for graduation. All other students, except exemptions listed below, shall be required to enroll tuition-free in the one-credit First Year Seminar course in his or her first semester. The successful completion of this course shall be a requirement for graduation.

Exemptions

Students who shall be exempt from enrolling in the one-credit course include: (1) transfer students who successfully complete a minimum of 9 credits at another institution, and (2) Non-degree seeking students who plan to take less than 9 credits at CCBC, which includes dual enrollment, early admission and transient students

www.ccbc.edu

Cross Registration CCBC students may enroll in courses at the Beaver Campus of Penn State University during the academic year (fall and spring semesters) according to the cross registration policy of the Beaver County Council of Higher Education. Students are permitted to register for one course per semester through the cross registration process. This cross registration is available to full-time students only who need or desire courses which are not offered or available at CCBC. Students will be charged tuition by CCBC for the total credits for which they are enrolled. Written permission must be granted. Students may apply for permission through the Dean of Enrollment Services at CCBC.

Course Load To complete the requirements for an Associate degree within two years, a student should enroll for 15-18 credits per semester. Recommended course loads and course sequences are shown in the degree plan for each program of study. Students who carry 12 semester credits are still considered full-time students. The maximum course load required by any curriculum is 19 semester hours. Students who wish to carry more than 18, but less than 22 credit hours, must request prior approval from a counselor. Students desiring to carry 22 or more hours are required to secure prior approval of the Dean of Enrollment Services.

Repeating a Course A student is permitted to repeat a course. The last grade issued will be the only grade included in the student’s cumulative quality point average. For purposes of this policy, “the last grade” means A, B, C, D, or F, only.

Freshman/Sophomore Status Students who have successfully completed 29 or less credit hours are classified as freshmen. Students who have accumulated 30 or more credit hours are classified as sophomores.

Change of Program or Major Students are required to declare a major for each period of enrollment. When a student decides to change his/her major, the student must file a change of major with the Information and Registration Center (IRC).

Adding or Dropping Courses Following the registration process, students may modify their class schedule through the ADD/DROP process. Dates during which these changes can be made are shown in the Academic Calendar. To add or drop a course, a student must complete the Change of Schedule (drop/add) form and secure approval from a college counselor or faculty advisor. No grades will be reported for any course dropped during the dates given.

Registration Class Participation and Enrollment Certification Through a variety of state and federal regulations, the College is required to certify its official enrollment for each semester/term. As part of this certification process, faculty members are required to certify student participation and to report any student who has not attended at least one class session or otherwise participated in required class activities during the census period. Following the census period for each semester/term, the Dean of Enrollment Services will distribute a copy of an enrollment report for each course section offered to the appropriate faculty. The enrollment report will show those students officially enrolled as of the census date. When the certified enrollment report is received by the Dean of Enrollment Services, action will be initiated to officially withdraw those students certified as having not attended or participated in required class activities during the census period. Students so withdrawn will be sent formal written notification of their withdrawal and will be informed of the appropriate appeals process to request reinstatement.

Student-initiated Withdrawal After the Add/Drop period, a student who wishes to withdraw from any or all classes, in good standing from CCBC, must complete and submit a Withdrawal Form to the Information and Registration Center. Students may withdraw from one or more courses or from the College at any point through the first eight weeks of class during a regular 15 week semester. The student will receive a grade of “W”. For sessions of less than fourteen weeks, the deadline will be pro-rated and published separately as part of the calendar for the session. Beginning with the ninth week of class and extending through the twelfth week of class, a student may withdraw only with written permission of each instructor. The student must obtain a Withdrawal Form from the Information and Registration Center, complete the required information, obtain the instructor’s signature and return the form to the Information and Registration Center.

Administrative Withdrawal The College reserves the right to cancel the registration of any student at any time for just cause, whether academic, disciplinary, or financial. The withdrawal action will be initiated by the appropriate department preparing a withdrawal request, attaching supporting documentation, and forwarding the request to the appropriate Vice President for review and approval. The Vice President will forward all approved requests to the Dean of Enrollment Services for processing, and the Dean of Enrollment Services will notify the student, in writing, of the withdrawal action. The Dean of Enrollment Services will also advise appropriate faculty of the action withdrawing the student. Students involuntarily withdrawn will not be eligible for a refund of tuition and fees and will receive a grade of “AW’. 16

Faculty Withdrawal Faculty of the College may withdraw students enrolled in their class under two sets of circumstances during the course of the semester. The first case will occur in conjunction with the process of roster certification. If a faculty member finds a student listed on her/his roster of officially enrolled students and the student has not attended at least one class session during the certification period, the faculty member must indicate the student’s failure to attend to the Dean of Enrollment Services. Upon receipt of this notification, the Dean of Enrollment Services will withdraw the student from the indicated class. The student’s registration record will be reduced by the credit hour value of the course from which s/he is being dropped, and financial assistance awards will be adjusted accordingly. The record of enrollment in the course will not appear on the student’s transcript, and the credit hour value of the course will not be used in calculating satisfactory academic performance. Following the roster certification period, faculty may initiate a withdrawal for any student identified by a faculty member as not pursuing the objectives of the course. To utilize this withdrawal option, the faculty member must have defined in the course syllabus distributed to students at the beginning of classes the criteria that will be used in measuring progress toward achievement of the course objectives. These requirements may include statements defining the expectations for attendance, tests to be taken, reports to be submitted, projects to be completed, presentations to be made, and other activities required for the student to complete the course. When, on the basis of a combination of these benchmarks, the faculty member determines that a student has ceased to pursue the objectives of the course, he/she may initiate a withdrawal of the student by notification to the Dean of Enrollment Services. That the decision to withdraw the student must be based on a combination of the benchmarks taken collectively rather than failure to achieve any one benchmark. Students who continue to pursue the objectives of the course and who are not successfully achieving the requirements established through the benchmarks may not be withdrawn using this procedure. Withdrawals under this procedure must occur prior to the end of the twelfth week of the regular semester. Upon receipt of notification of a withdrawal from a faculty member, the Dean of Enrollment Services will process the withdrawal and notify the student of the action taken. For administrative tracking purposes, the grade of “WF”, noting withdrawn by faculty, will be entered into the student records system. A final grade of “W” will be recorded on the final grade roster for the semester and may not be changed by the faculty member unless a reinstatement action has been completed. The grade of “W” will appear on the student’s transcript and will be used as defined in the College’s grading procedures in determining satisfactory academic progress by the student. Following notification to the student, the student may request a reinstatement by the faculty member. The appeal must be initiated within ten days from the date the withdrawal was processed by the Dean of Enrollment Services. The student must make a direct appeal to the faculty member initiating the withdrawal action, and it will be the faculty member’s determination as to whether the student can complete the required work and can therefore be reinstated. Where the appeal is accepted, the faculty member must issue a reinstatement notification to the Dean of Enrollment Services. If the appeal is denied by the faculty member, the student may appeal further following the guidelines established in the College’s grade appeal process.

Financial Aid Direct Plus Loans (Parent Loans)

The Direct PLUS Loans are for parents of dependent students whose educational costs are greater than the borrowing need of the Direct Loan program. The application for these loans is available online at www.studentloans.gov. In order to qualify for a Direct PLUS Loan, parents must meet credit approval. The parent of a dependent student may borrow up to the cost of education minus other aid per student each year.

Academic Progress Related To Student Aid CCBC is required by federal regulations to establish and maintain a standard for academic progress for a student who receives Title IV funds. Programs include the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Federal Work Study, Direct Loan, and Direct PLUS. In addition, CCBC will not certify alternative loans for students who are not making academic progress. A student’s permanent academic record will be reviewed after each semester of enrollment to determine academic progress. A student must successfully complete a minimum of 75% of all credits attempted. Withdrawal (W), Incomplete (I), and Failure (F) will be considered attempted credits for financial aid purposes.

on financial aid probation for the next enrollment period. The student will be notified of his/her probationary status. The student is eligible to receive aid during the period of probation but his/her academic record will be evaluated at the end of the enrollment period to determine future eligibility. Students on academic probation will not be permitted to use financial aid to preregister for future enrollment periods. Probationary semester grades must be reviewed by the Financial Aid Office before any aid will be credited for future enrollment. Any student who does not reach the minimum standards stated after a semester of probation will not be eligible for financial aid for future enrollment until the standards are met at the student’s expense. Any student receiving a QPA of less than 1.5 for a single semester will be placed on financial aid probation even though the cumulative totals exceed the minimum. Any student who receives 0.0 for a semester must meet with a Financial Aid officer to discuss the reasons for the lack of progress before any aid will be credited for future enrollment. The Financial Aid office can reduce the number of hours worked per week of any work study student who is placed on financial aid academic warning.

If withdrawal from a class (or classes) does not bring the student below full-time status, the withdrawal(s) will not be calculated into credits attempted or the Quality Point Average (QPA). Students who withdraw from a class (or classes) or change their status after receiving aid during any two semesters will be considered as lacking satisfactory academic progress.

A student who withdraws from all classes for which financial aid was used to pay tuition will be placed on probation for the next enrollment period.

Students who have successfully completed an Associate’s Degree may petition the Financial Aid Office for an extension of student aid benefits. The rate of progress for completion of degrees, diplomas, or certificates of part-time students will be adjusted to reflect their enrollment status. Full-time enrollment is based on 12 credits per semester. Minimum quality point averages must be maintained on the basis of semester completion as listed below.

All students receiving financial aid will be expected to attend class on a regular basis. Failure to do so could jeopardize future disbursements or considerations for financial aid. Students denied aid due to non-academic progress may appeal in writing, listing justification for the appeal. Appeals should be made in writing and addressed to the Director of Student Financial Services within 45 days of denial of aid.

A student must maintain the following QPA:

Academic Progress for State Programs

• • • •

A full-time student may receive a maximum of four semesters of PHEAA (State) grants at CCBC. PHEAA State Grants require successful completion of 12 credits per term if full-time and 6 credits per term if part-time. Courses repeated for which a student previously had a passing grade cannot be considered as additional credits attempted when measuring academic progress.

End of first semester or 9 credits - 1.5 QPA minimum End of second semester or 18 credits - 1.7 QPA minimum End of third semester or 27 credits - 1.9 QPA minimum End of fourth semester or 36 credits - 2.0 QPA minimum

Any student who does not achieve a minimum of a 2.0 QPA at the end of the second academic year or the completion of 36 credits will not be eligible to receive Title IV funds. Any student who does not complete their program of study within 150% of standard completion time will not be eligible to receive Title IV funds. Completion time is measured in credit hours (i.e. a 66 credit Associate Degree has a maximum completion time of 99 credits).

Federal financial aid may not be awarded for repeated courses in which the student originally received a passing grade.

Financial Aid Re-Establishing Satisfactory Academic Progress Students not meeting the satisfactory academic progress requirements may be reinstated for financial aid once they have enrolled at their own expense and successfully completed a sufficient number of courses to bring their cumulative completion rate and their cumulative GPA to the required standards.

Total Withdrawals from the College & Title IV Refund Policy Students who are planning to completely withdraw from the College must notify the Financial Aid Office of their intentions. If a student completely withdraws from the College (either officially or unofficially) before completing 60% of the semester, the College must calculate according to a specific formula the portion of the total scheduled financial assistance the student earned and is therefore entitled to receive. If a student received (or the College received on their behalf) more assistance than he/ she earned, the unearned excess funds must be returned to the Department of Education. This means that a student may have to repay federal monies that have already been disbursed to them. Once a student has completed more than 60% of the semester, they have earned all (100%) of their assistance.

Veterans Benefits Students who are eligible for Veterans benefits under the Montgomery GI Bill (including Chapter 30, Chapter 1606 or Chapter 35) or the Post 9/11 GI Bill can apply online at http://www.gibill.va.gov. Once the application is completed, a certificate of eligibility that outlines qualified benefits and the amount of time available to use those benefits is received. Students should bring their certificate of eligibility to the Financial Aid office. Students will be asked to complete a Veterans Enrollment Form for each semester they are registered for courses and using their benefits. The Financial Aid office will use this information to certify your enrollment with the VA. Students who are eligible for other

VA benefits including Federal Tuition Assistance or Education Assistance Program should contact their unit to apply for these benefits. Once a student is approved for other VA benefits, she/he should contact the Financial Aid office and provide documentation of his/her eligibility. Students who are receiving VA benefits must adhere to the following guidelines: 1. All veterans must complete the Veterans Enrollment Form every semester they attend. Veterans must immediately report any change in their enrollment status to the Financial Aid Office. Failure to provide any enrollment information will cause a delay in receiving benefits. 2. All certified courses must apply to a student’s major and be necessary for graduation. 3. Veterans must notify the VA and the school in writing of all changes in their schedule, and must include the last date of attendance. Be reminded that if a change in schedule results in overpayment, the veteran is liable to repay that amount to the Veterans Administration. 4. Veterans may not receive payment for any courses repeated if they received a “D” or better that first time. In any event, they may not repeat a course more than twice. 5. Veterans must maintain progress in all of their academic work. The school is required to report to the VA all veterans who do not maintain standards of academic progress. Any veteran on academic probation for two consecutive semesters will be reported to the VA. Any student who receives all “Fs” or “Ws” for any single semester will be reported to the VA. All “W” grades will be converted to “Fs” in computing a grade point average for all veterans. The quality point average on the official transcript will not reflect a penalty for “W” grades. The QPA (Quality Point Average) will be used to determine whether a veteran is in good academic standing according to the following school policy: • • • •

End of first semester or 16 credits - 1.5 QPA minimum End of second semester or 30 credits - 1.7 QPA minimum End of third semester or 47 credits - 1.9 QPA minimum End of fourth semester or 60 credits - 2.0 QPA minimum

6. Any semester with a QPA of less than 1.5 will also result in Academic Probation. Lack of certification does not prohibit a veteran from enrolling, only from using VA benefits until completing VA approved counseling. If the school has to notify the VA of academic deficiency, the veteran will be informed in writing. Information on re-instatement to receive VA benefits is available at the Financial Aid office. 7. Veterans are responsible for notifying the VA in writing of any changes of address or changes in the number of dependents. Moore Aviation Director George Dorn talks with a CCBC Aviation student.

22

8. Any veteran who receives a deferment for tuition is reminded that educational benefits are paid to defray the cost of your education. Tuition must be paid as soon as checks are received. www.ccbc.edu


Financial Aid 9. Any monies accepted by a veteran that result in an overpayment may constitute fraud, a punishable offense. The ultimate responsibility to keep the VA informed resides with the veteran. 10. Whenever a veteran changes a program, he or she must apply for change of program before receiving further benefits. 11. Once a veteran has completed a program for which he or she has VA approval, the veteran must apply for a change of program before receiving further benefits.

All questions regarding VA benefits or guidelines presented above should be directed to the Financial Aid Office. All veterans must complete a Veterans Enrollment Information Form at the Financial Aid Office each semester that they plan to attend. Veterans who have questions regarding their benefits can contact the VA at 1-888-GIBILL-1, online at http://www.gibill. va.gov or visit the Financial Aid office. These guidelines are developed to implement VA regulations and are subject to change.

Financial Aid Checklist Each student must secure, complete, and submit the appropriate applications for financial assistance. The following checklist may be used as a guide in completing the application process. Each student’s financial aid file must be complete before any financial aid will be awarded. • • • • • •

File a 2012-13 FAFSA/Renewal Application. File a CCBC Financial Aid Student Information Form for 2012-13. If required, submit additional information to PHEAA.

Academic Information Dean of Enrollment Services FERPA Notification Consistent with the requirements of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), students are advised that the College has designated the following student information as public information that may be disclosed for any purpose without student consent:

CCBC Foundation Mission The CCBC Foundation is a non-profit, educational trust established to secure and serve as the steward for donated private funds. These funds are used to support students through scholarships and other college activities deemed appropriate by the CCBC Foundation. In all of its efforts, the CCBC Foundation will support the mission, values and goals of the Community College of Beaver County . A gift to the CCBC Foundation has immediate tangible effects on academic areas, programs and students. An annual gift to the CCBC Foundation shows your participation in the success of the students and the college by providing resources to launch new ventures on the campus, in the classrooms and in the future of the students.

CCBC Foundation Events The annual HollyDay Gala and Auction gathers donors for a seasonal, festive celebration and recognition of the students of the Culinary Arts Program, who present a lavish display of their work. Proceeds benefit the CCBC Foundation and awards the FNB Culinary Scholarship to a second year Culinary student. The event occurs end of November or first week in December. Proceeds benefit the CCBC student scholarship and assistance fund. This event usually occurs in the first or second week of December. The CCBC Foundation Golf Outing, held in June, brings area golfers to a day of fun and food featuring the regionally famous “Garbinski Burgers” at the turn. The outing generates mission driven funds for the development of CCBC projects and programs.

• Name • Major field of study • Dates of attendance • Degrees and awards received • Previous institution(s) attended • Participation in officially recognized sports and activities • Weight and height of members of athletic teams For each period of enrollment, students may request that directory information be withheld from release by completing the appropriate form with the Information Resource Center (IRC). Students who believe their FERPA rights have been violated may file a complaint, in writing, with the Vice President for Learning and Student Success for investigation.

Academic Forgiveness Any student who has not attended CCBC for a period of three years or longer may file a written request for academic forgiveness with the Information and Registration Center. The request for academic forgiveness can be for any or all previous terms with no Q.P.A. requirement; or for D or F grades only. However, the overall Q.P.A. must be below a 2.0. If the request is approved, the respective grades from the previous attendance would not be calculated into the overall Q.P.A.; however, all grades will remain on the transcript and be properly noted. Approved academic forgiveness will not appear on the student’s transcript until he/she has earned at least an additional 12 credits with a Q.P.A. of 2.0 or higher. A student is only eligible for academic forgiveness one time and once approved, the decision cannot be reversed. Also, no tuition or fee refunds can be made.

Academic Information Equal Educational Opportunity Community College of Beaver County does not discriminate on the basis of sex, age, race ethnicity, sexual preference or disability in admissions or program access. If a student believes s/he has been the victim of discrimination, the student must file a written complaint with the Vice President for Learning and Student Success for investigation. These requirements also apply to requests for accommodations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and/or the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.

Computer and Technical Resources The College’s computer systems, all computers, computer files, and storage units (disks, CDs, jump drives, etc.), electronic devices and electronic mail provided in its offices or elsewhere and material contained within them are College property. All individuals are permitted to use College computers and technical resources for class purposes or other College-approved uses. The College administration will develop, implement, and enforce computer and technical resource use guidelines.

If you need help connecting to the wireless network, contact the IT Helpdesk at 724-480-3399 or email helpdesk@ccbc.edu.

Developmental Courses Developmental courses prepare students for college-level classes. The decision to require developmental courses is determined by in-house diagnostic testing, faculty perception, or the student’s awareness of need. The developmental classes may require lab work in addition to lecture hours. Developmental courses differ in several respects from college-level courses: • The grading system is unique, including letter grades of A, B, C, and R. The letter grade R indicates the instructor requirement that the student repeat the developmental course. • The credits acquired for developmental courses do not satisfy requirements for graduation and are not reflected in the QPA. However, students are required to successfully complete developmental courses. Developmental courses include: DEVS001 – Whole Numbers and Fractions DEVS002 – Decimals, Ratios, Proportions, Percent DEVS003 – Introduction to Geometry, Statistics, and Algebra DEVS009 – Syntax and Punctuation DEVS012 - Improvement of Reading Skills DEVS015 - Introduction to College Writing DEVS020 - Improvement of Mathematical Skills DEVS021 - Fundamentals of Algebra

Testing and Placement While CCBC is an open admission institution, the College requires placement testing of all entering students to determine their readiness to succeed in college-level courses. Students whose placement scores are below college-level will be required to take the developmental courses they need.

Writing across the Curriculum CCBC believes that discipline-based research and writing skills are important for success in any career. Therefore, certain courses, normally required in the second year of programs, are designated as Writing across the Curriculum courses. These courses are intended to showcase students’ continued application of skills acquired during first-year writing courses. In addition, a Writing across the Curriculum assignment is now required for all graduates as part of their graduation portfolio. The following list presents the Writing across the Curriculum courses available for each major at CCBC:

Special Topics Occasionally, course offerings include Special Topics in Liberal Arts, Business, Science, and Technologies. These courses are indicated by a program prefix code preceding the course number. Special Topics are created to increase the students’ knowledge in a particular discipline or to enhance knowledge in a diverse field of study. Special Topics are offered at the discretion of the Division Directors. Credits earned in Special Topics courses can be applied as elective requirements toward graduation. Students should consult college counselors for details.

Independent Study Consistent with requirements of the agreement between the College and the Society of the Faculty, the College will consider creating Independent Study courses under the following conditions: • A student proposes a project designed to explore topics not covered in the regular program curriculum. • A student needs a course to meet the requirements for graduation in the current semester and no acceptable substitute course is available from the inventory of scheduled courses, as determined by the appropriate Division Director. www.ccbc.edu

2929


Academic Information If either of these conditions exists, a student must request the authorization of an Independent Study through a faculty member in the discipline of the subject matter to be addressed in the course. If a faculty member is willing to conduct the Independent Study with the student, s/he must recommend creation of the Independent Study to the appropriate Division Director. If a full-time faculty member is unwilling to offer the Independent Study, the student may request an Independent Study through an appropriately qualified part-time instructor. The request for approval must be forwarded to the appropriate Division Director for consideration. A syllabus stipulating the educational outcomes, the work to be completed by the student, and evaluative measures utilized to determine student success must accompany the request. An Independent Study will not be considered authorized until approved by the appropriate Division Director. Approved requests for Independent Study will be forwarded to the Dean of Enrollment Services who will create the independent study section. Copies of the approval and its accompanying syllabus will be maintained in the office of the Division Director.

General Education Requirements

Cultural Literacy delineates the patterns of individual and group dynamics that provide structure to society on both individual and global levels. Students will complete an approved project assigned in a course with one of the following prefixes:

General Education prepares students for immediate academic, personal, and professional endeavors, as well as for a life of learning, by providing knowledge and skills that are of use in all programs of study.

• ANTH • GEO • HIST

General Education requirements at CCBC include the following: Communication Proficiency requires the skilled presentation of ideas through appropriate media and in a manner suitable to the audience. Students will complete an approved project assigned in either WRIT101 English Composition I or in a course with one of the following prefixes: • COMM • FINE • FILM

• FREN • MUSI • SPAN

• THEA • WRIT201

Information Literacy recognizes the need to integrate authoritative resources with an existing knowledge base. Students will complete an approved project assigned in either LITR210 Concepts of Literature or WRIT103 Writing for Business and Technology (depending on your major) or in a course with one of the following prefixes:

• BUSM255 OR ECON255

Technology Literacy enhances the acquisition of knowledge, the ability to communicate, and productivity. Students will complete an approved project assigned in CIST100 Introduction to Information Technology.

Graduation Portfolio Requirements Effective Fall 2012, all graduates of degree programs are expected to present a graduation portfolio to the College as part of their graduation requirements. The graduation portfolio assembles the best samples of work that students complete in their courses. Normally, a student will select no more than one sample from any course, so there is a well-represented body of achievement. Course syllabi identify the assignments that can be used, and training is provided in selected courses as well as on Blackboard and in the Student Resources Center. The assignments will be compiled so that there are two samples from each of the General Education categories: Communication Proficiency, Information Literacy, Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning, Cultural Literacy, and Technology Literacy.

• JOUR • LITR • PHIL Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning employs empirical and mathematical processes and scientific methods in order to arrive at conclusions and make decisions. Students will complete an approved project assigned in a course with one of the following prefixes: • BIOL • CHEM

• POLS • PSYC • SOCI

• MATH • NANO

• PHYS

In addition, a writing sample from the Writing Across the Curriculum course for a student’s major choice (see page 27 of this catalog) is also required. Completion of the graduation portfolio will display students’ best work in a central location. Students’ achievements will also assist in assessing services so that the College can make changes to better serve students. Technical support for the graduation portfolio is available from the Learning Lab Technician in the Learning Resources Center.

Course Pursuit Each student has the responsibility to regularly attend and effectively pursue the stated objectives for each course in which s/he is enrolled. The instructor for each class will provide the student with a course syllabus at the beginning of each semester, and the syllabus will delineate the criteria for demonstrating pursuit of the course objectives.

class activities defined in the syllabus; and failure of the student to submit required papers, projects and/or reports. When, on the basis of a combination of these factors, the instructor determines a student has ceased to pursue the objectives of the course, he or she may withdraw the student from enrollment in the class. No withdrawals within the context of this procedure will be initiated later than the twelfth week of classes.

In making a determination of pursuit of the course objectives for each student enrolled, the instructor will consider class attendance; failure of the student to appear for exams, presentations or other required

The faculty member will submit the withdrawal notification to the Dean of Enrollment Services. The Dean of Enrollment Services will notify the student of the withdrawal action, and the student

will receive a letter grade of “W” for the course. Students withdrawn in this manner may request to be reinstated in the course through appeal to the appropriate instructor. Such appeals must be initiated, in writing, within 10 days from the date on which the withdrawal was processed by the Dean of Enrollment Services. If the instructor agrees to reinstate the student, he or she will submit a re-instatement notification to the Dean of Enrollment Services for processing. If the instructor denies the request for re-instatement, appeals may be initiated in a manner consistent with the grade appeals process.

Satisfactory Academic Progress and Good Standing As an open admission institution, CCBC will normally permit enrollment for any individual who has the potential to benefit from participation in the educational program provided through the College. Acceptance for an individual to enroll does not automatically guarantee access to specific programs within the College if specialized admission requirements have been established. Upon initial enrollment, a student will be required to demonstrate satisfactory academic progress and remain in good standing with the institution. For students participating in certificate/degree programs offered for college credit, the following definitions and processes will determine satisfactory academic progress and good standing.

Basis of Calculations Quality points will be awarded on the basis of grades earned under the institutional procedures on Grades and Grading. Quality point averages will be calculated at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters and at the end of the Summer term for all courses completed during the Summer. The calculations will be based on all credit hour courses completed during the semester/term. In all calculations, incomplete (I) grades will be treated on the same basis as a final grade of “F.” When the “I” grade is converted, the semester and cumulative QPA will be recalculated appropriately.

Good Standing Full-time students will be defined as those completing at least twelve (12) semester credit hours with a semester QPA of 3.2 to 3.7499 will be placed on the Dean’s List for the semester. Those with a semester QPA of 3.75 or above will be placed on the President’s List for the semester. Criteria for part-time student placement on either the Dean’s List or the President’s List are described in separate procedures. Academic Warning, Probation, Dismissal, Appeal & Reinstatement The College correlates Academic Progress with federal regulations for Financial Aid in order to protect students against the loss of Financial Aid. www.ccbc.edu

Minimum quality point averages must be maintained on the basis of semester completion as listed below: A student must maintain the following cumulative QPA: • End of first semester or 9 credits - 1.5 cumulative QPA minimum • End of second semester or 18 credits - 1.7 cumulative QPA minimum • End of third semester or 27 credits - 1.9 QPA cumulative minimum • End of fourth semester or 36 credits - 2.0 QPA cumulative minimum

First Warning If, after the end of the term, the student falls below the standard, the student will receive a First Warning Letter indicating that the student remains eligible for continued enrollment with the College, and as a condition of enrollment, the student: 1. Will be required to meet with a counselor, 2. May be required to retake diagnostic testing, 3. May be required to take/retake any needed developmental course(s), and 4. Will be limited to 9 semester hours in Fall or Spring semesters (6 semester hours during summer term). A letter will be sent from the Provost’s office notifying both the student and the academic advisor within 10 business days from the posting of final grades. Within the letter, the student will 31


Academic Information be informed of the above requirements as well as the potential for dismissal. In rare instances, students may be on the Dean’s List and Academic Probation at the same time. Those students will receive a letter commending them for their achievements and explaining that, because their GPA still is below the required standard, they will continue on probation. The tone of the letter is to be complimentary and encouraging, yet advisory.

Academic Probation Any student whose academic performance does not meet the QPA standards below during the semester of warning will be placed on academic probation. During academic probation, the student is expected to continue with the above requirements. Minimum quality point averages must be maintained on the basis of semester completion as listed below:

Reinstatement Appeal A student previously dismissed from the College may apply to the Provost for reinstatement 1 year after said dismissal. Reinstatement after dismissal from the Community College of Beaver County is neither automatic nor guaranteed. A student may be reinstated only if the student provides convincing evidence of probable academic success if permitted to return to the college. A dismissed student, who has previously accumulated a substantial number of credit hours and/or an excessively low GPA, should expect that reinstatement is not likely to be approved. For programs with selective admission requirements, specified certification standards or additional program and graduation requirements, reinstatement may be impossible.

• End of first semester or 9 credits - 1.5 cumulative QPA minimum • End of second semester or 18 credits - 1.7 cumulative QPA minimum • End of third semester or 27 credits - 1.9 cumulative QPA minimum • End of fourth semester or 36 credits - 2.0 cumulative QPA minimum If after two semesters of academic probation, the student has not returned to good standing, the student will be placed on academic dismissal for a period of one year.

The application should include convincing evidence of the student’s motivation to continue and of the student’s specific efforts during the period of dismissal to eliminate previous weaknesses. As a prerequisite of approval, the student must participate in academic counseling and may not enroll for more than twelve (12) semester credit hours. The student may be required to take placement tests, repeat courses previously completed, participate in tutoring and/ or other assistive services, enroll in developmental courses and/or take a reduced course load as recommended by the Provost or his/ her designee. A student who is reinstated is automatically placed on probation until good academic standing is attained. Academic requirements will be determined by the Catalog-in-force at the time the student re-enrolls at the CCBC.

Academic Dismissal

Special Help Letter

A student placed on academic dismissal will be sent a certified letter from the Provost’s office within 10 business days of the posting of grades. The letter will include the reason for dismissal, the process of Appeal, as well as the method of reinstatement. The letter will suggest taking non-credit remedial classes during the dismissal period.

All students falling below a 2.0 cumulative GPA, but not placed on warning or probation, will receive a Special Help Letter. This letter will suggest that: 1. The student meets with a counselor, 2. The student retakes diagnostic testing, 3. The student take/retake any needed developmental course(s), and 4. The student limit to 9 semester hours in Fall or Spring semesters (6 semester hours during summer term).

A student must maintain the following cumulative QPA:

A letter will be sent at the end of the student’s second semester of dismissal again suggesting that they take non-credit remedial classes during the dismissal period.

Academic Dismissal Appeal

A letter will be sent from the Provost’s office notifying both the student and the academic advisor within 10 business days from the posting of final grades.

A student placed on Academic Dismissal may present reasons, in writing within 5 days from letter receipt, to the Provost, to have his/her situation reviewed and the dismissal reversed. The Provost, or his/her designee, will review the student’s appeal and render a decision within 5 business days of the request receipt.

Attendance

Grading

The College maintains that class attendance is necessary and that students are expected to attend all classes. The student should be aware that unexcused and/or excessive absences may affect final evaluation. Students are responsible to make up any missed work.

CCBC uses standardized criteria to demonstrate the performance standards for all students registered in credit courses with the use of letter grades. In addition to the standard letter grades (A-F), other grades may be awarded to identify a student’s end of course status. The standard grading system for credit students will include the following:

Guests Students who wish to have a guest (non-enrolled individual) attend a class may do so only with the advance permission of the instructor of that class. Repeated class attendance by a nonenrolled individual is prohibited.

Distance Learning Online courses at CCBC allow students to create flexible schedules for classes that require little or no time on campus. These courses are based on the same course content and materials that serve as the foundation for our on campus classes. However, students rely on the Internet and email to supplement textbooks for much of the instruction. Online courses and on-campus courses have the same rigor. Only their delivery system and the method in which students interact with instructors are different. For online classes, course content and other communication between students and instructor are accomplished primarily through the Internet-based Blackboard course management system and email, although video and traditional means are used as required. You will find many programs include online course offerings and are indicated as such in the course schedule each semester. To preview CCBC’s online courses through the Blackboard web site, visit http://blackboard.ccbc.edu and login as a guest. Depending upon the course and instructor, some classes, known as hybrids, will periodically be required to meet on campus for testing and other work. Check the course schedule each semester for meeting dates/times of offered hybrid courses. Students must have regular access to a computer with Internet connection and a web browser to successfully complete online courses. Common web browsers, such as Microsoft Internet Explorer, will easily support online learning. Students will also need access to standard support software, such as Microsoft Office and spreadsheet software such as Excel for business courses. CCBC does not provide support for home systems or connectivity problems. CCBC will not be responsible for grades resulting from the failure of home technology during enrollment in a course. Support for accessing online courses and training can be accessed through the CCBC homepage, email, or by phone.

A – Superior (4 grade points per credit hour) B – Above Average (3 grade points per credit hour) C – Average (2 grade points per credit hour) D – Below Average (1 grade point per credit hour) F – Failure (0 grade points per credit hour) AU - Audit W - Withdraw AW – Administrative Withdraw I - Incomplete R - Repeat P - Passing

Notice to Students A performance grade of “D” will generally enable students to receive credit for having satisfied the minimum criteria required to complete the course and to progress to the next course required in the selected degree/certificate program. However, students are advised that many colleges and universities will not accept a transfer class in which a grade of “D” was earned and the student may be required to take the course again at the transfer institution. In addition, the College will award grades to designate a student’s completion status for enrollment in non-credit courses. CR – Successful completion of the course NC – Unsuccessful completion of the course

Audit A student may request to be allowed to enroll for a course without the intent of receiving a performance grade for the course or to receive the credit hours for the course in satisfying the requirements for graduation.

Academic Information Incomplete Grade

President’s List and Dean’s List Recognition

In those cases where a student has been consistently in pursuit of completion of the course objectives and requires additional time to complete the course requirements, the faculty member may agree to award an “I” grade, indicating Incomplete. This grade will require a written agreement between the faculty member and the student which indicates the specific work to be completed and the timeline for completion. The student may be allowed up to four months to complete the required work and submit it to her/his faculty member for evaluation. Following the submission of the required work, the faculty member will assign a final grade and issue a grade change notification to the Dean of Enrollment Services. Until the grade change is received, the student transcript will reflect a grade of “I” which for purposes of calculation of the QPA will be treated as an “F.” Once the change of grade has been processed, the QPA for the semester in which the “I” grade was received and the cumulative QPA will be recalculated appropriately. If the grade is not converted within four months, the grade posted to the transcript will become an “F.”

The Quality Point Average (QPA) for students will be calculated at the end of the Fall and Spring semesters and at the end of the Summer term for all courses taken during the various sessions. Full-time students (i.e. those completing at least 12 semester credit hours) will be eligible for academic recognition by being named to the President’s List or the Dean’s List for that semester/term.

Repeat Grade The option for a grade of “R” may only be used in the grading of courses within developmental education. The grade will designate that the student made progress toward achievement of the course objectives but has not fully demonstrated the skills and knowledge necessary to successfully complete the course. In courses where an “R” grade is assigned, the semester credit hours for the course will not be shown as completed and will not be used in calculation of the QPA. Students may not progress to college level courses with either an “R” or “NC” grade. The student to re-enroll in the course and complete the course objectives in order to receive a performance grade. The grade of “R” may only be awarded once for any particular course, and if the student does not re-enroll and complete the requirements of the course within the semester, the grade will convert to a grade of “NC.”

Transcripts

Students who successfully complete courses from the approved Transfer Credit Framework can transfer those credits to any of the participating colleges and universities and have them count towards graduation. Interested students should visit www.PAcollegetransfer.com.

Radiography programs require, at a minimum, a high school diploma or the equivalent. High school courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and biology are helpful. The programs provide both classroom and clinical instruction in anatomy and physiology, patient care procedures, radiation physics, radiation protection, principles of imaging, medical terminology, positioning of patients, medical ethics, radiobiology, pathology, and digital imaging. Federal legislation protects the public from the hazards of unnecessary exposure to medical and dental radiation by ensuring that operators of radiologic equipment are properly trained. Under this legislation, the Federal Government sets voluntary standards that the States may use for accrediting training programs and certifying individuals who engage in medical or dental radiography. Upon successful completion of the program the student is eligible to sit for the Registry exam from the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists for Certification. Various career opportunities are available after graduation. Radiographers are currently employed in hospitals, private physicians’ offices, clinics, sales, industry, and military service. Ample opportunity for professional growth and advancement exists in specialty areas such as Ultrasound, Nuclear Medicine, Radiation Therapy, Computerized Automated Tomography (CT), Special Procedures, and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), as well as management and education.
