History

Del Mar College was founded in 1935, under the control of the Board of Trustees of the Corpus Christi Independent School District, to provide two years of postsecondary education. In 1951, the College became an independent political subdivision, legally Corpus Christi Junior College District. In 1999, the Board of Regents adopted Del Mar College District as the official name of the institution. Del Mar College started in borrowed classrooms with 154 students in the first class. Today the College registers more than 22,000 persons each year in academic, occupational and noncredit courses. The College now offers programs on two primary campuses, one campus annex and a satellite Northwest Center with combined physical assets of more than $177 million.

Philosophy

Del Mar College is committed to the following concepts: Academic freedom and responsibility provide the foundation for the creation of a learning environment which promotes academic excellence, independent and creative thinking and respect for the individual. Lifelong learning is a process for self-development and self-realization by which the individual assimilates knowledge, develops skill and competency and establishes values which enhance his or her understanding of career choices, quality of life and responsibilities of citizenship. 12


All individuals have the right to pursue educational goals and should have the opportunity to realize the potential of their abilities through quality education. Involvement and interaction between the College and the community are essential to ensure relevance and vitality in all educational programs, activities and services and to enhance cultural, economic and social life. The College is committed to the concept of the learning college, an institution of higher education that focuses on student learning. Currently, important learning initiatives include the implementation of curricular learning communities, campus-wide incorporation of the latest in innovative instructional methodologies and technologies, definition and assessment of student mastery of the six intellectual competencies in the core curriculum and measurement of demonstrable student learning and student success in all courses and programs.

GETTING STARTED

Getting Started

There are a lot of ways you can walk through our doors. Student Enrollment Center

The Student Enrollment Center provides students with a fluid transition to Del Mar College by connecting students with knowledgeable staff who can assist with the admissions process, as well as providing academic advising for students majoring in liberal arts or classified as undecided. Students seeking admission to the college should submit an application for admission, a valid placement examination and an official copy of their high school transcript. If transferring from another institution, students should submit copies of all transcripts from other institutions attended. Additionally, students who meet the criteria are required to submit proof of having received a bacterial meningitis vaccination pursuant to Texas Senate Bill 1107. Visit www.delmar.edu/meningitis to learn more. Testing is discusseed in detail in the “Assessment and Placement” section of this Catalog.

Open Door Admissions Del Mar College has an “open door” admissions policy under the authority of the Texas Administrative Code Title 19 and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.

Limitations Admission to the College does not guarantee your admission to all programs of the College. Certain programs have limited enrollment due to special equipment needs or space limitations. These admissions limitations are listed under specific programs in the Catalog.

Right to an Academic Fresh Start If you are a Texas resident and have academic course work that is over 10 years old and would like to request to have the work ignored for admissions purposes to a special admission program, you will need to contact the Registrar’s Office. You must complete the Right to an Academic Fresh Start Agreement with the Registrar’s Office prior to the deadline for applying to a special admissions program. In signing the agreement, you confirm that the course credit or grades earned by you 10 or more years prior to the date of the semester in which you plan to seek your enrollment will not be considered for admissions purposes and cannot apply towards your degree. The Right to an Academic Fresh Start does not change your transcript and cannot be used for financial aid purposes. Since Del Mar College has “open admissions” to the college, Academic Fresh Start is not applicable to admission to the college -- just to a special admissions program.

General Application

Before you can register for classes, you must apply to the College.

Application for Admission: First Step Complete the Application for Admission to Del Mar College either online through 16

FINANCIAL AID

Financial Aid Assistance

While you and your family are expected to assume a major responsibility for the costs associated with attending a certificate or degree program at the College, there are resources to help you. If you have a demonstrated financial need, or even if you are not able to demonstrate need, you can apply for financial assistance to fund your education. Read on to find out how. Financial Aid Services encourages you to seek financial assistance to help pay for college. Assistance comes in the form of gift aid (grants and scholarships) and self-help aid (loans and employment).

Eligibility

Requirements To be considered for aid eligibility, you must: • Be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen. • Be registered with Selective Service (male, U.S. citizens and permanent residents, ages 18-26). • Have demonstrated financial need (U.S. Department of Education and Del Mar College will use the information from the Student Aid Report (SAR) to determine the financial need of the student). • Attend a school that takes part in one or more of the financial aid programs • Have a high school diploma, GED (or its recognized equivalent) or have been home schooled • Be enrolled at least half-time (6 hours) in an eligible program as approved by the Department of Education (in some cases, students may receive a Federal Pell Grant for less than half-time enrollment). • Be working toward a degree or certificate. • Be making satisfactory academic progress as defined by Del Mar College Policy. Refer to “Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy” section. • Not owe a refund on any Title IV (Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant or Federal State Student Incentive Grant) or any other Higher Education Grant program received at any institution previously attended. Refer to “Return of Title IV Funds” under CONSEQUENCES OF WITHDRAWING/DROPPING section. • Not be in default on any Title IV Federal Perkins Loan, Federal Stafford Student Loan, Federal Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students (FPLUS), Federal Supplemental Loan to Students (FSLS) or any other Higher Education Act Loan Program received at any institution previously attended. Refer to “Return of Title IV Funds” under CONSEQUENCES OF WITHDRAWING/DROPPING section.

Application Process FAFSA: First Step

To qualify for financial assistance, including loans and some scholarships, you must first complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This 26


FINANCIAL AID can be done one of three ways: 1. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on the Web, or 2. Obtain a printed FAFSA at Financial Aid Services at Del Mar College (due to high costs, these may be issued in a limited amount), or 3. Complete the FAFSA Renewal Application on the Web.

Electronic FAFSA The U.S. Department of Education has an electronic version of the FAFSA. By using this version, you may reduce the processing time of your application by two to three weeks. Applying on the Web allows you to complete the FAFSA over the Internet in an easy-to-use format. FAFSA on the Web/Renewal FAFSA on the Web can be found at www.fafsa.ed.gov. The questions on the Web application will be listed differently than those on the paper application; therefore, it is important to complete a Pre-Application Worksheet instead of a paper FAFSA to guide you. You can print a copy of the Worksheet from Section I of the FAFSA on the Web home page at www.fafsa.ed.gov or pick up a copy from Financial Aid Services. The Renewal FAFSA is a tremendous time saver as responses from the prior cycles’ FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA are displayed, and you answer only those questions that are likely to have changed from the previous year. The online application procedure is also available in Spanish.

Personal Identification Number (PIN) If you applied for the 2011-2012 school year, you will receive an electronic Personal Identification Number (PIN) from the Central Processing Center. This PIN serves as your electronic signature as well as enabling you to access your account information. If you are a dependent student, you must have one parent sign the signature page unless your parent has also obtained a PIN. For more information on the PIN, log on to www. pin.ed.gov.

Application Steps Below are important steps that you need to follow to apply for financial aid. 1. Complete your FAFSA with your correct legal name as it appears on your Social Security Card. 2. Complete the FAFSA or Renewal FAFSA using the actual figures from your 2011 Federal Income Tax Return, annual statements you receive from Social Security, TANF and/or Child Support, including any other documentation of other sources of income. Accuracy is very important when completing this step of the FAFSA, especially these items: a. Adjusted Gross income from the IRS 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ. b. Income tax paid from the IRS 1040, 1040A, or 1040EZ. c. Income received from other sources, such as gift money from family, private sources, housing, food and other living allowances paid to

27


FINANCIAL AID members of the military, clergy and others (including cash payments and cash value of benefits). d. Household size should reflect only those family members who are being supported by the student or the student’s parents. (Do not include family members who do not fit the description found in the FAFSA instructions). e. Number of family members from the household who are in college (Do not include your parents). f. Cash and savings. g. Investment and other real estate net worth (Do not include the value of the house in which you or your family live). h. Dependent student’s income. 3. After completing the FAFSA online, submit the application electronically and either mail the signature page within 10-14 days or utilize the PIN which serves as an electronic signature. 4. About two weeks after filing your FAFSA electronically, you should receive a Student Aid Report (SAR) in the mail. If you provided an email address, the SAR will be emailed to you. If you listed Del Mar College on your FAFSA (code 003563) you are not required to bring the SAR to Financial Aid Services. We will receive an Electronic Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) with your information. 5. The U.S. Department of Education may select your application for a process called Verification. If this occurs, you will be required to submit at 2011 IRS tax transcript, a verification worksheet and any other income verification documents. You and your parents may also use the IRS data retrieval option in place of the IRS tax transcript. 6. Academic transcripts of all college credits are needed. A copy of GED scores/certificate is also needed if applicable. High school graduates should have their transcripts on file at the Registrar’s Office. 7. Most of the forms are available on the “E-Form” section of the WebDMC portal. You may complete, sign and submit the forms electronically. Failure to complete any of these steps, or if any of the information is inaccurate or missing, may cause a delay in the processing of your file. In addition to these steps, you may request to schedule a personal interview with financial aid personnel.

Financial Aid Deadlines: Priority Priority is given to you when you complete your financial aid file by the priority deadlines and show the greatest documented need. Priority deadlines are established to allow ample time for the processing of your file and timely delivery of funds to you. Applications for financial assistance are accepted after January 1 of each year for the following academic year. It is recommended that you apply at least two months before the priority deadline. Financial Aid Program Deadline Academic Year May 1 Spring Only October 1 Summer Sessions February 15 28


FINANCIAL AID If the scheduled deadline falls on a holiday or weekend, you have until the next business day to turn in your paperwork. All applications received after the priority deadline are awarded according to the availability of funds on a first-come, first-serve basis.

FINANCIAL AID There are three kinds of loans: a. Student Loans The following student loan programs are available: • Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program* • Direct Loan Subsidized (DLSUB) • Direct Loan Unsubsidized (DUNSB) • Direct Loan Unsubsidized-Additional (AUNSB) * The Federal Direct Stafford Loan Program consists of both the Federal Subsidized and Unsubsidized student loans; however, the U.S. Department of Education is your lending institution and will be responsible for all your correspondence and repayments. b.

They are not part of the federal government guaranteed loans and should only be used when all other options have been exhausted. Research all possibilities for scholarships, grants, work-study and federal loans before borrowing from an alternative loan program. What should you look for in an Alternative Loan? • Annual Percentage Rate (APR) • Loan Limits • Repayment Terms • Cosigner Requirement • Repayment Incentives • Interest Capitalization • Lender for Federal Loans

2. Student Employment Programs

Students are expected to be continuously aware of their grades.

Del Mar College has adopted the following Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy (be advised these standards apply to all financial aid programs unless the terms of a particular program indicate otherwise): Federal/State Regulations require students to be making Satisfactory Academic Progress at the time they receive financial assistance. All financial aid recipients must be enrolled in a program of study leading to an Associate’s degree or a certificate program. All course work attempted at Del Mar College will be evaluated, regardless of whether the student previously received assistance. All transfer course work, accepted for credit, will be counted towards the maximum time frame. A student’s academic progress is evaluated after each long semester and at the end of the summer session. The evaluation includes all coursework attempted for the semester/sessions (withdrawals, incompletes and “R” grades will be included in determining the total number of hours for which the student enrolled). It also includes all periods of the student’s enrollment, even those for which the student did not receive financial aid. (Rapid Track semesters, mini-semesters and Maymesters will be included in the semester in which they began.) The Progress Standards required are shown below: • Must successfully complete the number of hours/credits stated below: - Students enrolled for a full-time course load, 12 hours or more, will be required to pass a minimum of nine (9) semesters hours of the courses enrolled. - Students enrolled for three-quarter time, 9 to 11 hours, will be required to pass a minimum of six (6) semesters hours of the courses enrolled. - Students enrolled for half-time, 6 to 8 hours, will be required to pass six (6) hours of the courses enrolled. - Students who enroll for less than six (6) hours must complete all hours attempted. • Must have a 2.0 or better GPA on the minimum numbers of hours required to pass. • Must maintain an overall 2.0 GPA at the end of the fourth semester, including Summer Terms. • Must complete a certificate/degree program within the maximum time frame of 150% of the published length of the educational program your current major. For example, if a student is pursuing a program (certificate/associate degree) requiring 64 credit hours, no financial consideration would be available after completing 96 credit hours, even if the student has not yet earned the certificate/associate degree and meets all other satisfactory academic progress standards. (64 X 150%=96) 31


FINANCIAL AID Successful completion means a student has received a minimum grade of D. Grades of F, IP (in progress), W (withdrew) are not considered a completed courses.

Good Standing • Students who meet the above requirements are considered to be in good standing for financial aid purposes.

Failure To Meet Standards

Financial Aid Warning • Financial aid warning is a caution that the student is jeopardizing future eligibility but can still receive financial aid. • The first time the minimum standard is not met, the student will be placed on a financial aid warning. • A cumulative 2.0 GPA must still be maintained for students who have attended four or more semesters, including summer sessions. • TEXAS Grant and TEOG awards cannot be appealed. Financial Aid Suspension • Financial aid suspension is a cancellation/denial of awards or disbursements of financial aid. • The second time the minimum standard is not achieved; the student will be placed on financial aid suspension. • Students placed on academic suspension by the Registrar’s Office will automatically be placed on financial aid suspension. This financial aid status will continue should the student be granted permission to enroll after an academic suspension appeal. Students under this status must meet the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress standards in order to get back on financial aid. • Students placed on enforced scholastic suspension the last time they were enrolled will be on financial aid suspension. • Any student exceeding the maximum time frame of 150% of the program will be placed on financial aid suspension. • A cumulative 2.0 GPA must still be maintained for students who have attended four semesters, including Summer Terms. Additional Information: • There is a limit of 30 semester hours of developmental course work that may be eligible for financial aid. Any developmental hours beyond this 30 hour limit will not be eligible for financial aid consideration. All developmental course work will be counted toward the maximum time frame. • All repeated course work will count toward the maximum time frame. • Transfer work: All transfer work, accepted for credit, will be counted towards the maximum time frame. Students will be required to have an appropriate advisor evaluate the transfer hours and certify on the DMC Transfer Credit Evaluation Form (TRCR), the number of transfer hours applicable towards their current educational objective. A signed degree plan must also be submitted along with the TRCR. Financial Aid Services will adjust the total attempted semester hours accordingly. • Transient students (students attending for the Summer Term only) are not eligible to receive any financial aid from Del Mar College.

32


FINANCIAL AID Regaining Eligibility A student may regain eligibility for financial aid by: • Paying for expenses related to enrollment from personal resources until the student has satisfied the minimum Standards of Academic Progress (SAP). • Students placed on financial aid suspension while enrolled for six (6) or more hours must enroll for six (6) or more hours and meet the minimum requirements as stated above. • Students placed on financial aid suspension while enrolled less than six (6) hours may enroll for less than six (6) hours and complete all hours with a 2.0 or better to remove the financial aid suspension status; however, their status will only improve to financial aid warning. • Students who had extenuating circumstances for not maintaining SAP, may appeal the suspension status by filing a written appeal with Financial Aid Services within 10 business days from receipt of the Suspension Letter.

Financial Aid Suspension Appeal Process

Federal regulations provide for hardship waivers based on the death of a relative, personal injury, illness (self and family) or other extenuating circumstances that prevent the student from making progress. Students must complete a Financial Aid Appeal Form and a narrative as to the circumstance(s) that prevented SAP and attach supporting documentation such as: • Death Certificate • Letter from a doctor on official letterhead • Police records or court documents • Other verifiable documents that support the student’s claim. In addition, students must also provide a statement indicating what provisions have been made to ensure the circumstance(s), if any, will not reoccur or interfere with future academic progress.

Maximum Time Frame Appeal A student appealing due to having exceeded the maximum time frame must complete the Maximum Time Frame Appeal form along with a narrative explaining the reasons why the time frame was exceeded. A signed copy of an up-to-date degree plan along with a degree plan summary sheet must also be submitted to Financial Aid Services. A student enrolled in a transfer program must submit a degree plan by a university advisor where the student is transferring from. The degree plan must list the accepted DMC hours and the remaining DMC hours required to complete the transfer program. Financial Aid Services will notify the student of the findings and recommendations within three (3) weeks of submission of the student’s financial aid appeal. Students whose appeal has been granted will be placed on financial aid probation. Should the appeal be denied, the student has the right to appeal in writing to the Financial Aid Appeals Committee within eight (8) business days from the date of the denial letter. The decision of the Committee will be based solely on the review of the student’s record and shall be final. 33


FINANCIAL AID During the Appeals Process, the student must be prepared to pay for expenses such as tuition, fees, books and supplies and/or other educational related expenses from personal resources.

Consequences Of Withdrawing/Dropping

It is important that you consider very carefully the consequences of withdrawing/dropping all of your classes at Del Mar College; this can adversely impact your financial aid.

Return of Title IV Funds Return of Title IV Funds applies to you if you have been awarded assistance from a federally funded loan or grant and have completely withdrawn (officially or unofficially) from Del Mar College. Your instructor reports your last day of attendance. The Department of Education considers you to have officially withdrawn if you earn all non-passing grades.

Calculation of Return Federal aid is earned on a daily prorated basis up to and including the 60% point in the semester. After the 60% point, all aid is considered earned and no refunds/ repayments are required. Your Return of Title IV Funds will be calculated accordingly: • The percent earned is calculated by dividing the number of calendar days completed by the number of calendar days in the semester. • The earned percentage received in federal assistance is the amount you are permitted to keep. The unearned percentage (remaining amount) must be returned to the federal government by both the College and you. This may cause you to owe both the College and the federal government. • The percent Del Mar College must return, on your behalf, will be returned to the appropriate federal fund program. The Del Mar College Business Office will bill you for the amount owed to the College. Outstanding balances at the end of the term will be referred to a collection agency by the Del Mar College Business Office. • The funds will be refunded to the Federal Funds Program in the following order, if applicable: 1. Unsubsidized Federal Direct Student Loan 2. Subsidized Federal Direct Student Loan 3. Plus Loan Program 4. Pell Grant Program 5. Federal SEOG • You must repay the amount owed to the appropriate federal program within 45 days. After the 45th day, if payment is not received, your overpayment will be referred to the Department of Education for collections and to the National Student Loan Database. • You must then make repayment arrangements with the Department of Education in order to maintain future eligibility for federal funds.

FINANCIAL AID

Retaking Coursework

Changes to Financial Aid regulations will prohibit, in some cases, payment of previously repeated courses. Rules will permit payment for retaking a course under the following conditions: - If a student earns/receives a non-passing grade (I, R, W, F) in a course, the student may retake the course and can be included for payment. - If the student passes the course (D is considered passing), the student may retake the course one more time to improve the grade and can be included for payment - Any second or subsequent repetition of a passed course may not be counted for payment - Retaking courses will be counted in evaluating the student’s record for Satisfactory Academic Progress and maximum time frame eligibility (www.delmar.edu/protect_your_financial_aid.aspx) These changes will be effective beginning with the Summer 2012 term.

Summary

Financial Aid Services is ready to assist you with exploring options to financing your higher education costs.

Instructional Support

There are four specific types of instructional support.

1. Freshman Seminar Freshman Seminar (FSEM 0101) helps you make a successful transition to college. The course covers topics vital to college success: getting organized, time management, goal setting, test taking, note taking and personal communication. In addition, you are introduced to the wide variety of resources on campus.

2. Developmental Courses You might need to enroll in developmental courses to build a strong academic foundation prior to enrolling in college-level courses. It takes determination on your part to postpone career plans while doing developmental work in English, mathematics or reading. However, these academic enrichment courses will establish the needed preparations prior to enrolling in college-level work. You should know that you pay tuition for these courses, the grades earned are reflected on your permanent transcript and, in most instances, these courses do not count toward a degree. However, through these classes, you develop good study habits, improve reading comprehension, increase ability to analyze and develop reasoning skills. This is what building an academic foundation is really all about.

3. Supplemental Instruction If you are enrolled in a historically difficult academic course, Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides regularly scheduled, out-of-class, peer-facilitated study sessions led by trained SI Leaders. If you regularly attend SI sessions, you will learn study strategies and refine learning skills which can help you earn higher course grades, stay enrolled and graduate.

College Costs

We care about the cost of your education. Del Mar College is one of the most affordable colleges in the state. Tuition

Residency/Tuition Estimates There are three ways to define your residency. 1. College District If you live in the independent school districts of Calallen, Corpus Christi, Flour Bluff, Tuloso-Midway and West Oso, you are included in the College District without exception. • If you live in the Del Mar College District, you can register for a fulltime course load for as little as $1,107 tuition and fees per semester. 2. Texas Resident In determining residency, the College will use the same guidelines as the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. In order for the State of Texas resident’s tuition rate to apply, you must supply the documentation required. See “Proof of Texas Residency” under “ADMISSIONS” for a list. • If you live outside the district, you can register for full-time status for about $1,707 tuition and fees per semester. 3. Out-of-State If you have not proven your Texas residency at the time of preregistration and/ or registration, you will be considered an out-of-state student and billed accordingly. • If you are from out-of-state or from a foreign country, you may register for full-time status for about $2,156 tuition and fees per semester. The tuition estimates provide for 12 semester hours or four regular 3-credit-hour courses. Estimated tuition for additional courses or specialized classes that require special instruction, labs or uniforms may increase tuition costs.

Tuition by Type of Course There are basically two different types of courses—credit and noncredit—at the College. Tuition differs for each type. There’s actually a third—General Education Development (GED) preparation—which is absolutely free! 1. College Credit Courses There are two ways of looking at tuition for credit classes—the total cost or the per hour cost.

COSTS

Fees

There are a number of fees associated with classes, but keep in mind what you’re getting in return–safe campuses, top-notch facilities, state-of-the-art labs and tools, student clubs, cultural events, intramural sports and more. There are two types of fees—basic and special. 1. Basic Fees Basic fees are charged to everyone. • General Use $12 per semester hour is charged each registration for college-credit courses.

Tuition and fees shown are correct as of the date of printing but are subject to change by the Board of Regents. A schedule of currently approved fees is available in the Counseling and Advising Centers on both East and West campuses.

Other Costs

Besides tuition and fees, there might be a few other costs associated with your education.

Occupational and Health Sciences Education If you are in an occupational or health science field, you must furnish your own books and hand tools. Such items may be obtained from sources of your choice. A list of required books and tools will be furnished at the time of registration. 51


COSTS

Insurance You should be aware that you are responsible for your own private health and accident insurance. Liability or malpractice insurance is required in certain programs. See “Student Liability.”

Student Liability Activities during occupational programs and courses may expose you to more than the usual degree of responsibility and liability. Health sciences, cosmetology, criminal justice, law enforcement, fire science, emergency medical services and occupational safety and health students may be required to carry professional liability insurance. For example, $5 per semester will be charged in all health sciences courses, and $21 per semester will be charged in all Emergency Medical Services and Fire Science programs to provide general liability coverage for students.

Payment

Tuition and fee charges must be paid at the time of registration, which is not complete until all payments have been made. Course credit and grades may be withheld until all obligations to the College are met. Auditors in all courses must pay the same tuition and fees as those who are enrolled for credit. You will not be sent a bill by mail. You may view total tuition and fees on WebDMC. Payment may be made by mail, on the Web, or in person at the Business Office in the Harvin Student Center (HC) on the East Campus or in the Coleman Center (CC) on the West Campus. Payment may also be made with a credit card by phone (see “Telephone Directory” in this Catalog). If you do not pay, or make satisfactory arrangements to pay, all financial obligations to the College, you may have your registration voided and/or you may be removed from all classes; also course credit, grades, degree or certificate may be withheld. Also, you may be charged for loss of, or damage to, College property for which you are responsible, including library books.

Refunds

If for some reason you have to interrupt your education, you might get some of your costs refunded. In order to be eligible for a refund, you must complete the withdrawal requirements of the College. First, you must complete, sign and file a College Withdrawal form in the Registrar’s Office, and a refund application with the Business Office. Applications for refunds will not be accepted after the end of the semester in which withdrawals are made, and refunds will be processed as soon as possible.

Withdrawing If you withdraw or are withdrawn from Del Mar College, you may be eligible for a refund of a portion of the tuition and fees paid to Del Mar College for that semester. If you received financial assistance to cover tuition and fee costs from outside the family, then a portion of the refund will be returned to the grant, scholarship or loan source from which the assistance was received. Please note that you must visit the Registrar’s Office and complete the Notice of Withdrawal. This step will allow Del Mar College to refund the maximum possible amount of tuition and fees. 52


COSTS

Refund Formulas The College refund and repayment policy is applicable if you attend traditional 16-week semesters. There are two refund formulas used at Del Mar College. 1. First Formula The first formula applies if you haven’t received financial aid. Fall and Spring Prior to first class day 100% During the first 15 class days 70% During the 16th - 20th class days 25% After 20th class day 0% Summer Prior to first class day 100% During the first five class days 70% During the sixth and seventh class days 25% After the seventh class day 0% 2. Second Formula The second formula applies if you have received financial aid and the refund is as mandated by the Higher Education Act Reauthorization of 1998. The formula provides a Return of Title IV aid if you received Federal Financial Aid in the form of a Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG), Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG), FELP or Direct Student Loan, or Plus Loan. The amendment states that if you withdraw before completing at least 60% of the semester or earn all non-passing grades, you may have to pay back a portion of your federal funds. The percentage of the refund is equal to the number of days attended divided by the number of days in the semester. The first class day is defined as the “day classes start at Del Mar College and not as the first day a student attends classes.” The first class day is based on the Texas College and University System Common Calendar as determined by the state. Refer to the current semester credit class schedule for applicable first class date. A 100 percent refund is made for courses dropped prior to the first class day. If any portion of the refund amount is left after satisfying the federal Return of Title IV Aid, the remaining balance will be applied to Del Mar College funds, state programs and any other sources of financial assistance. Worksheets used to calculate the Return of Title IV funds are available at Financial Aid Services. For a detailed discussion, see “Financial Aid Services” section of the Catalog.

Distribution of Funds No cash refunds will be made; all refunds will be issued via the DMC Debit Card. With the DMC Debit Card, refunds will be delivered in the manner the student selects at www.DMCDebitCard.com. Payments made by credit cards will be credited to the respective card account.

Costs

Rebate Opportunity If you began a baccalaureate degree from a Texas general academic teaching institution in the Fall 1997 semester or later, you are eligible for a tuition rebate of $1,000. In general, this rebate opportunity is based on your attempting no more than three semester hours in excess of the minimum required to complete the baccalaureate degree. Complete information concerning this rebate is available from the College Business Office.

Summary

It costs to go to College, but it costs more not to. Think about it.

Academic Policies

Academic Policies Academic Honesty

You are expected to maintain the integrity of the College by maintaining academic honesty for yourself and by expecting academic honesty behavior from your fellow students. One of the requirements for passing the courses you take at Del Mar College is that you do your own work. Meeting this requirement means avoiding plagiarism, collusion and cheating. Plagiarism occurs when a student takes another’s words or ideas and uses them as if they were the student’s own. This can happen in three ways: 1) A student copies another’s words without using quotation marks and without giving the source, 2) A student puts another’s ideas into the student’s words but does not give the source, and 3) A student duplicates another’s structure of thought or organization of ideas but does not give the source. Collusion occurs when someone else writes all or any part of a student’s paper. Cheating includes, but is not limited to, a student looking at another’s work or using unauthorized materials during a test or written assignment; or fabricating data, methodology, results, findings from those in an official document, publication, or research and claiming them to be authentic.

Course Load

To be classified as full-time, you must register for a minimum of 12 semester hours. To complete a program in two years, the degree/certificate plans in this Catalog suggest how many semester hours you must take each semester. According to the Texas Administrative Code, you should not carry more courses in any term than would equal more than one semester credit hour per week over the course of the term. For example, in the fall or spring semester, you should not enroll in more than 16 semester hours. In a six-week summer session, you should not enroll in more than six semester hours.

Course Prerequisites And Co-Requisites

Pre-requisites and co-requisites (also known as concurrent pre-requisites) are two kinds of entry requirements for particular courses. You must satisfy prerequisites, or their equivalent, before registering for a course. You must enroll in a co-requisite course at the same time you register in the other course. In most cases, you can register for the other course if you have already success fully completed the co-requisite. Pre-requisites and co-requisites are identified in the course descriptions at the back section of this catalog.

Auditing A Course

Permission to audit a course or courses may be granted by the Student Enrollment Center and Registrar’s Office if you are eligible for admission to the College and either already have credit in the course(s) or do not wish credit for the work. You may audit a course on a space-available basis and are required to pay the full tuition and fees at the time of registration. Tuition and fees for auditing are the same as those rates charged to students enrolled for credit. Since auditors are only observers, you may not under any circumstances claim credit for the course. Change from credit to audit status must be done before the 12th class day in the long session and before a proportional period of time in the summer and short sessions. 55


Academic Policies Kinesiology Activity Courses (KINE 1100-1299, KINE 2100-2299 and DANC 1101-2154) may not be audited.

Grading System

At the end of each semester, the Registrar’s Office makes a record of the grades and credits awarded to you. Your grades may be accessed using WebDMC. Grades are not mailed to you. At Del Mar College, grades are expressed in letters that are equated in points used in calculating the cumulative grade-point average. Del Mar College uses a four (4.0) point system of grading. Grades are given upon completion of a course. Grade reports are not mailed to you; you may access your grades through the WebDMC Web portal at delmar.edu/webdmc. Letter Grade Grade Points Per Semester Hour A (Excellent) 4.00 B (Good) 3.00 C (Fair) 2.00 D (Poor) 1.00 F (Failure/no credit given) 0.00 P/F (Pass/Fail) 0.00 I (Incomplete) 0.00 R (Repeated) 0.00 AU (Audit) 0.00 W (Withdrawal) 0.00

Grade Point Average

Your Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated multiplying the semester-hour value of the course by the point value of the grade received. For example: 3 semester hours with a “B”grade = 9 grade points. To determine the grade point average, add up the grade points from all courses and divide by the total semester hours attempted. For example: 15 semester hours with 30 total grade points = 2.0 average. The semester hour, a unit of credit, means the amount of credit given for one classroom hour a week for 16 weeks or the equivalent. Laboratory work may add a semester hour’s credit to a course.

Incomplete Grade (I)

When you do not complete a course because of illness or extenuating circumstances in any semester, the instructor may assign the “I” grade, signifying that your work is incomplete. The instructor will provide you and the department chair with 1) a written reason for the assignment of an “I” grade, 2) a description of the work to satisfy course requirements, 3) a timeline for you to complete the work, and 4) a timeline for the instructor to submit a grade change form to the Registrar. The “I” grade will not be computed into the grade point average. If the “I” grade change is not completed at the end of the subsequent full-term semester (Fall or Spring), the “I” grade will automatically change to an “F” (for failing) in college-level classes, or “R” (for repeat) in developmental classes. Any exceptions to this timeline can be made only with the approval of the Provost and Vice President of Instruction and Student Services. 56


Academic Policies If you have an “I” grade, you may not enroll in the same class in the next semester as a substitution for completing unfinished work on the “I” grade. However, if you receive a grade of “F” or “R” because you failed to complete the requirements for the removal of the “I” grade, you may re-enroll for the same course again. If you repeat the course, the grade in the repeated grade will become the grade of record and will be calculated into the Grade Point Average. The “F” or “R” from the “I” grade that was not completed will remain on the transcript.

Withdraw Grade (W)

When a course is incomplete because of official withdrawal, either by you or the instructor, the designation is a “W,” which is not computed in a grade point average.

Pass/Fail (P/F) Grade

Courses taken on a pass/fail basis do not earn grade points. All pass/fail grades will be entered on the transcript. If a student fails a pass/fail course, the attempted credits will be calculated in your attempted hours that determine grade point average. The Pass/Fail grade is assigned to RNSG clinical courses in the Nurse Education program and in the Court Reporting program to CRTR 2435 Accelerated Machine Shorthand (Web-based course only).

Repeat Grade (R) For Developmental Courses

Del Mar College offers a number of courses to prepare students for college credit work. They are required, based on placement test scores, for you if you need additional preparation in specific subjects in degree programs. Developmental courses do not count toward graduation or calculate into your semester or cumulative grade point average. In developmental courses the “R” grade is used to indicate that you have made some progress but are not ready for a more advanced course within the discipline. The grades of “D” and “F” are not used in developmental courses. The grade of “R” does not automatically convert to any other grade and is not used in computing grade point averages or academic status. If you receive the grade of “R” in a developmental course, you must reregister for that course or complete course requirements and make a grade of “A,” “B,” or “C” in order to 1) receive credit for that developmental course and 2) to be eligible to register for a more advanced course in the discipline. Developmental courses in which the “R” grade may be used are: • ENGL 0305, 0306, 0307 • ESOL 0305, 0306, 0307, 0311, 0312, 0313, 0314, 0321, 0322, 0323, 0324, 0341, 0342, 0343, 0344, 0354 • FSEM 0101 • MATH 0370, 0371, 0373 • READ 0305, 0306 •

Repeating A Course And Grade Calculation

If you repeat a course, the last grade earned will become your official grade for the course and will be calculated into your grade point average and will count towards total credits earned. Your first grade will remain on your transcript of record; however, it will be removed from the calculation of your cumulative grade point average and the total credits earned. If you repeat a course for three or more times, you may be subject to paying higher tuition and fees. 57


Academic Policies Since clinical laboratories in health science courses utilize interaction with hospital patients, failure by you (grade of “F”) due to unsafe practice in the clinical area is reason to deny readmission to a clinical course. If you earn a grade of “D,” you may apply for readmission to the department the following year.

Grade Appeal

The evaluation of academic work is the prerogative of the instructor and the rules for determining final course grade should be established by the instructor and provided to the students in an electronic or printed course syllabus at the beginning of the semester. A student who believes grounds exist for the appeal of a final grade must first consult with the instructor. If the appeal cannot be resolved, a student may proceed to the grade appeal process. The procedures described in this policy are available only for appeal of a semester or term grade based on one or more of the following reasons: 1. A mathematical error in calculation of the grade or clerical error in recording of the grade that remains uncorrected; 2. The assignment of a grade to a particular student by application of more exacting requirements than were applied to other students in the course; 3. The assignment of a grade to a particular student on some basis other than performance in the course; 4. The assignment of a grade by a substantial departure from the faculty member’s previously announced standards; 5. Extenuating circumstances such as illness, incapacity, or absences of the instructor generate uncertainty regarding appropriateness of the grade assigned. Grades given as a result of academic dishonesty cannot be appealed under the grade appeal procedure, but should be made under the provisions of the Policy on Scholastic Dishonesty B7.13.7. The procedures for submitting a grade appeal are available in the office of the Dean of Student Engagement and Retention.

Course Numbering

Courses are numbered to indicate level of instruction. Freshman level courses are designated in the 1000 sequence, and sophomore level courses are designated in the 2000 sequence. Courses numbered less than 1000 are considered developmental and do not apply to certificate and degree requirements.

Adding Or Dropping Courses

Adding or Dropping a Course (Schedule Changes) You may add or drop a course (schedule changes) during the time specified in the Del Mar College class schedule and by completing the necessary forms required by the Registrar’s Office.

Dropping an Individual Course with a Grade of “W” The grade of “W” will be assigned to a course that you have dropped by the date stated in the class schedule. You are not eligible to receive a grade of “W” without completing the official paperwork by the deadline stated in the schedule of classes. 58


Academic Policies

Six Drop Limit If you are a first-time student who entered college in Fall 2007 or after, you cannot drop more than six courses, including any course you have dropped at another college in Texas, according to Senate Bill 1231. There are exceptions to this policy if you can show good cause for dropping a course(s). For further information, contact the Registrar’s Office.

Implications for Financial Aid You should be aware that dropping courses may affect your eligibility for financial aid. You should contact Financial Aid Services prior to dropping a course or completely withdrawing from school. If you stop attending class without officially withdrawing from the College, then the grade is an automatic “F.” Students receiving Veterans Benefits for education should contact Veterans Services for specific policies concerning drops and withdrawals. These changes may have a direct effect on your VA benefits.

Class Attendance

Students are responsible for attendance and are advised that excessive absences may adversely affect their grades or their continued enrollment in the course. Regular and punctual class and laboratory attendance is expected of you. A record of attendance may be kept by instructors, beginning the first day of class. If attendance is unsatisfactory, the instructor may request your withdrawal from class. The Registrar will notify you if this action is taken by the instructor. If you desire readmission, you should initiate the procedure listed above. If you do not carry out that procedure, your withdrawal from the class is final. If you have been reinstated into a class and are absent again without excuse, the instructor may request your final dismissal from class. Certain absences are ruled valid and acceptable, such as participation in recognized student activities of the College or illness. Specific programs, such as health sciences, may have additional attendance requirements that are applicable to the students enrolled in the program.

Student Absences on Religious Holy Days In accordance with Texas Education Code 51.911, the College will excuse you from attending classes or other required activities, including examinations, for the observance of a religious holy day, including travel for that purpose. If your absence is excused under this subsection, you may not be penalized for that absence and will be allowed to take an examination or complete an assignment within a reasonable time after the absence. “Religious holy day” means a holy day observed by a religion whose places of worship are exempt from property taxation under the Tax Code. Notifications of planned absences must be in writing and must be delivered by you, not later than the 15th day after the first day of the semester, either (a) personally to the instructor of each class, with receipt of the notification acknowledged and dated by the instructor or (b) by certified mail, return receipt requested, addressed to the instructor of each class.

Withdrawal From The College

If you decide to withdraw from all of your classes, you must complete a withdraw form that is available from the Registrar’s Office at any campus site. Failure to 59


Academic Policies file a withdrawal form may result in grades of “F” for courses in progress.

Administrative Withdrawal The Administration may drop you for administrative reasons for reasonable cause. You may also be withdrawn for those incidents that may be related to violating the student code of conduct and in particular, disrupting the classroom and the educational process. Should you be subject to administrative withdrawal, the College will provide proper notification. You may seek the advice of the Provost and Vice President of Instruction and Student Services about this procedure and any due process procedures that will be afforded. You may be withdrawn for issues related to academic integrity. Instructors with evidence of your plagiarism or other forms of cheating will follow the procedures outlined in A7.13.6.4 of the Board of Regents “Policies and Procedures Manual, Penalties for Dishonest Behavior.” A recommendation by the faculty member to suspend and/or dismiss you from the College for academic dishonesty must be submitted through the department chair to the academic dean. The appropriate academic dean will convene an Academic Ethics Committee prior to suspending/dismissing you to afford you due process. Instructors may withdraw you from class for lack of attendance or other academic reason.

Appeal of Administrative Withdrawal If you are withdrawn from a class, you may • Appeal to the instructor by first obtaining a Reinstatement Form from the Registrar’s Office and presenting it to the instructor. • If satisfactory arrangements can be made between you and the instructor, readmissions to the class will be permitted upon the instructor’s completion of the Reinstatement Form. • The completed form must be returned by you to the Registrar’s Office within five working days from the receipt of the drop notice, but no longer than 10 working days from the date of the drop by the instructor.

Scholastic Standing

Scholastic standing will be established once you have completed 12 college credit hours. Scholastic standing is determined at the end of each semester when an evaluation is made of your cumulative grade point average, which determines your academic standing. To be in good scholastic standing, you must maintain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA). It is important that you remain in good standing with the College. The grades posted on your transcript are a permanent record and will always be a part of your academic history. Grades can affect your eligibility for admissions to a specialized program, transferability to another university, or qualifications as an applicant for employment. If your cumulative grade point average falls below a 2.0, then the following applies

Probation The first semester you have more than 12 college credit hours, but less than 30 semester credit hours and do not meet the minimum 2.0 GPA, you will be placed on probation. Probation means you can still enroll at the College but are not in 60


Academic Policies good standing and should seek advising to determine a plan for successfully completing your coursework.

Second Warning If you are on probation and enroll and have not earned 30 semester hours, but still have not reached a minimum 2.0 overall GPA at the end of the semester, you will be placed on continued probation. Continued probation means that you can still enroll but are receiving a second warning. It is extremely important for you to seek advising.

Suspension If you have earned 30 semester hours and are on probation or continued probation and do not make the minimum 2.0 overall GPA at the end of the semester, you will be placed on academic suspension. Academic suspension means that you are not eligible to enroll at the College without making an appeal to the Registrar’s Office. Specialized programs may have additional requirements.

Effect of Summer Enrollment on Academic Standing If you are on scholastic suspension, you may enroll in the summer sessions as a means of raising your GPA to meet the cumulative 2.0 minimum without having to make an appeal for admission.

Suspension Appeals If you are on scholastic suspension from Del Mar College or from any other college, you may complete a suspension appeals form at the Registrar’s Office to request permission to enroll. The appeal will be based on individual merit. It is your responsibility to initiate the request and set an appointment to meet with the Registrar.

Transfer Student Appeal for Admission If you are transferring from another college or university on scholastic suspension, you may appeal for admission by contacting the Registrar’s Office.

Academic Recognition Honors Program

The Honors Program offers several discipline-related honors plans, which provide intellectual stimulus and professional development, while awarding special recognition. Some plans provide a broad experience of inter-related study. Others emphasize intensive study of a single subject. The Office of the Provost and Vice President of Instruction and Student Services coordinates the Honors Program. The Honors Program is not accepting new participants at this time. However, students currently enrolled in the Honors Program are eligible to continue their participation in the Program unless there is a break in semester enrollment at Del Mar College. For continuance in any honors plan, you must maintain the requirements of the program. Reasonable progression towards the completion of a plan, with a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA, is required in the Program. Re-admittance in the Program is possible for extenuating circumstances.

Academic Policies

Honors Courses Honors courses are available to every student who has been admitted to the Honors Program and has met the prerequisites for the standard course and the honors component. Most employers and university faculty equate honors credits with challenged, enriched study. Therefore, the honors component of any course must have amplified substance and elevated prerequisites beyond those of the standard course. Assessment levels of R3, E3, M3 are recommended for all honors courses.

Honors Program Learning Contract To receive honors credit, you must enroll in a standard class and, after the semester starts, sign a learning contract with the instructor for the honors component of the course. Credit for honors will be awarded at semester end, after the course project grade of “A” or “B” has been registered and completion of the honors contract has been verified by the Office of the Provost and Vice President of Instruction and Student Service. An “H” indicates honors credit on transcripts.

Honors Designation on Diploma If you have completed the requirements of your selected honors plan at the time of graduation and if you have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, you will receive special designation on your official transcript and a special seal on your diploma.

Honors List If you are enrolled for and complete 6 or more semester hours of college-level course work and earn a grade point average of 3.5 or more on your semester grades, your name will be included on the Honors List. Developmental courses beginning with the number zero are not considered in Honors List calculations.

Catalog Designation for Graduation The Catalog that is in effect upon your entry or reentry into Del Mar College determines the degree and/or certificate requirements that you must meet for graduation. It is your responsibility to know and satisfy all of the requirements in your designated catalog. Catalog designations are made according to the following guidelines: • If you are entering Del Mar College for the first time, you are assigned to the Catalog that is in effect at the semester of entry. You must follow the degree requirements as specified in that Catalog, as long as the length of time of your attendance does not exceed five years. • If your attendance at Del Mar College exceeds five years, you forfeit the initial Catalog designation. You must then meet the degree and/or certificate requirements specified in the Catalog in effect in the sixth or subsequent year of enrollment. • If you are absent for two or more regular (fall or spring) semesters, you must meet the degree and/or certificate requirements of the Catalog in effect at the time of re-entry.

Assessment and Placement

Assessment and Placement

The College is committed to making sure that you are placed in the right classes so that you can succeed. Assessment Of Skills

Assessment of basic skills, through testing, is essential because it helps you know your strengths and weaknesses. Specifically, you need to be tested for reading, writing and mathematics skills to determine your readiness for college-credit courses prior to registration. This testing requirement is part of the Texas Success Initiative. Performance on tests will not be used as a condition of admission to the College. However, placement levels are used to determine which classes you can sign up for.

Levels All college-level courses at Del Mar College require specific assessment levels. Any assessment below Level III means that you need to enroll in developmental courses. An assessment level chart is found in the “Course Descriptions” section of this Catalog to assist you and advisors in determining your placement in coursework.

Testing

Standardized Testing You will be taking the THEA, THEA QT, or the COMPASS tests. If you are an international student whose primary language is other than English, and you are taking only English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) classes, you will take the Comprehensive English Language Test (CELT) to determine your placement into ESOL classes. You will pay the fees for these test(s); however, a few waivers are available through Financial Aid Services for qualified students. Be sure to request that an official report of test scores be sent to Del Mar College well in advance of registration.

Exemptions to Testing Requirements • If you have previously taken the TASP test. • If you have recent qualifying ACT, SAT, SAT1 or TAKS scores, you may be exempt from additional assessment testing. To prove exemption, you must submit official test scores to the Student Enrollment Center. • If you have already graduated with a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education, or are transferring from a private or independent institution of higher education or an accredited out-of-state institution of higher education and have satisfactorily completed college-level coursework in English and math, you may be exempt. Official college transcripts must be provided to the Student Enrollment Center to prove exemption. 64


Assessment and Placement

Certification/Licensing Exams FYI– There are special licensing/certification/registry exams that you might need to take upon completion of specific occupational-type programs.

Departmental Exams Each department chairperson sets the requirements to meet in order to take a departmental examination for credit. Generally, you are eligible to apply for this exam if you earned predominantly “A” grades in the subject in high school and scored exceptionally high on a nationally-recognized test and/or if you can demonstrate to the department chairperson significant and relevant experience in the subject area. Departmental exams will not be given for developmental courses, nor for any course in which you are presently enrolled. Arrangements for testing are made through the department chairpersons.

Evaluation Of Credentials For Credit

You may earn credit by departmental evaluation of your credentials when such learning can be documented as substantially equivalent to a Del Mar course. Credit will be accepted and applied from the following: • Nontraditional transcripts (armed forces schools, real estate boards, American Institute of Banking, hospital schools, cosmetology schools) • State or national board exams (Vocational Nurse Education, Registered Nurse Education, Radiologic Technology, Respiratory Therapy, Surgical Technology) • Experience in business, military administration and industry • High school programs or military training included in written articulation agreements with the College.

Policies And Procedures For Earning Credit

It’s important to understand the policies and procedures for credit by exam and evaluation of credentials.

Policies 1. Only if you are currently enrolled or are a former Del Mar College 68


Assessment and Placement student are you eligible to apply for credit. Informal evaluation will be done free of charge. 2. Credit by exam - College Board Advance Placement (AP), College Board Achievement Exam (SAT II), College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES) will be accepted as “credit only” (CR) and will not affect your Grade Point Average (GPA). 3. Only an “A” or “B” grade receives credit for departmental exams. Grade points are given for a departmental exam and a footnote indicating that credit was obtained by examination will be indicated on your transcript. 4. Credit earned by evaluation of credentials will be determined by the pass/fail method. No grade other than “CR,” the number of credit hours, course number and title are recorded on your transcript. 5. Examinations offered at Del Mar College can be retaken only after six months have elapsed. Some departmental examinations cannot be retaken. 6. Credit by examination satisfies degree requirements in the same way as credit earned by passing courses, except that it cannot be used to satisfy the 25 percent of semester credit hours earned at Del Mar College, which is the residency requirement for graduation. 7. Credit may not be earned by examination for most performanceoriented courses, such as music ensembles, drama productions, dance performances, radio-television shows, speech competitions, physical activities, etc.

Procedures

1. Obtain a petition to record credit in the Registrar’s Office or the appropriate academic department. 2. If necessary, have the petition signed by the department chairperson. 3. Pay the required fee at the Business Office. 4. Take the test or present documentation for evaluation. If credit is granted, the results will be forwarded by the department chairperson, to the dean and to the Registrar’s Office. You can get more detailed information about testing procedures from the Testing Office at the Multiservice Center or both the East and West Campus Student Enrollment Centers.

Fees A statement of testing fees and evaluation charges is available at the Business Office and the East and West Campus Student Enrollment Centers.

Advising

Academic advising is important. It is available to all who wish to talk about course prerequisites, graduation requirements, career opportunities and suggestions for doing well in class. If you are a declared major, you work closely with faculty members in your major department. If you are an undeclared or liberal arts major, you are advised by the Student Enrollment Center. 69


Assessment and Placement Advising is required prior to online registration if you have earned 24 credits or fewer. If you have more than 24 credits, you are still encouraged to meet with an advisor.

Appointments You need to call the department of your major to schedule an advising appointment. See the following list of advisors’ telephone numbers. If you are using the Student Enrollment Center, walk-ins are welcome; no appointment is needed.

Your Responsibilities

• Prior to the appointment, think about your goals and reflect on previous academic progress. If you are currently enrolled, you should consider how you are doing in your classes. Think about your other commitments (work, family, etc.) and how those impact your time. Then, you and your advisor can discuss how to turn goals into reality by following your degree plan. A copy of the degree plan, given to you, will show the specific courses needed. • You are responsible for making sure that the courses selected meet degree requirements. Use the College Catalog to confirm which courses meet the requirements. Failure to obtain correct information will not exempt you from having to meet those requirements. You should bring a tentative list of classes you want to take to the advising appointment. • Courses should be selected with attention to prerequisites and sequences. If you preregister for classes for which you lack the prerequisites, you can be dropped from those classes by the chairperson of the appropriate department in order to release those spaces to students who have satisfied the prerequisites. You will be protected from such removal only if you secure permission of the chairperson prior to registering. • It is your responsibility to know specific transfer requirements of the college or university to which you plan to transfer. This responsibility includes knowing course requirements, number of credit hours accepted and grade-point average required for admission. Bring a copy of the catalog of your transfer institution to your advising appointment. • You are expected to keep a copy of your degree plan, signed by both yourself and your advisor. Each time you meet with an advisor, you should bring your most recent degree plan for updating.

STUDENT RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, SAFETY

Your Rights, Responsibilities and Safety

Here’s what you need to know about how to conduct yourself on campus. Data

Student Records Your records pertaining to directory information and education are kept by the Registrar’s Office. According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), education records are those records that relate directly to your academic progress maintained by the institution. If you want to review your records, you may do so by requesting and presenting your photo ID in the Registrar’s Office. If, upon review, you desire to challenge any portion of your records, you should contact the Registrar for additional information. School officials, who act in your educational interest within the limitations of their need to know, have access to your records without your prior written consent. Rights You have certain rights under FERPA with respect to your education records. They are: 1. The right to inspect and review your education records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access. You should submit to the registrar, dean, department chairperson, or other appropriate official, written requests that identify the record(s) you wish to inspect. The College official will make arrangements for access and notify you of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the College official to whom the request was submitted, that official will advise you of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed. 2. The right to request the amendment of your education records that you believe is inaccurate or misleading. If upon review you desire to challenge any portion of your records, you should contact the Registrar. 3. The right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in your education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

A student who believes grounds exist for the appeal of a final grade must first consult with the instructor. If the appeal cannot be resolved, a student may proceed to the grade appeal process. A student with a complaint against another student should consult with the Dean of Student Engagement and Retention on the proper procedure to follow.

AIDS Policy Del Mar College recognizes that Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) and HIV-related conditions such as AIDS-Related Complex (ARC) pose significant issues in an academic setting. Because of the College’s commitment to maintaining a healthy and safe campus environment, the AIDS policy and other procedures emphasize the education of employees and students concerning AIDS and the management of each case of AIDS individually with sensitivity, flexibility and concern for the affected individual as well as other employees and students. You may obtain educational pamphlets on AIDS at the Office of the Dean of Student Engagement and Retention, or the Office of Student Leadership and Campus Life and the Student Enrollment Center in the Harvin Student Center (East Campus) or the Coleman Center (West Campus).

Bacterial Meningitis Information This information is being provided to all college students in the state of Texas. Bacterial Meningitis is a serious, potentially deadly disease that can progress extremely fast - so take utmost caution. It is an inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. The bacteria that causes meningitis can also infect the blood. This disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year, including 100-125 on college campuses, leading to 5-15 deaths among college students every year. There is a treatment, but those who survive may develop severe health problems or disabilities. What are the symptoms? • High fever • Rash or purple patches on skin • Light sensitivity • Confusion and sleepiness • Lethargy • Severe headache • Vomiting • Stiff neck • Nausea • Seizures There may be a rash of tiny, red-purple spots caused by bleeding under the skin. These can occur anywhere on the body. 83


STUDENT RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, SAFETY The more symptoms, the higher the risk, so when these symptoms appear, seek immediate medical attention. How is bacterial meningitis diagnosed? • Diagnosis is made by a medical provider and is usually based on a combination of clinical symptoms and laboratory results from spinal fluid and blood tests. • Early diagnosis and treatment can greatly improve the likelihood of recovery. How is the disease transmitted? • The disease is transmitted when people exchange saliva (such as by kissing, or by sharing drinking containers, utensils, cigarettes, toothbrushes, etc.) or come in contact with respiratory or throat secretions. How do you increase your risk of getting bacterial meningitis? • Exposure to saliva by sharing cigarettes, water bottles, eating utensils, food, kissing, etc. • Living in close conditions (such as sharing a room/suite in a dorm or group home). What are the possible consequences of the disease? • Death (in 8 to 24 hours) • Permanent brain damage • Kidney failure • Learning disability • Hearing loss, blindness • Limb damage (fingers, toes, arms, legs) that requires amputation • Gangrene • Coma • Convulsions Can the disease be treated? • Antibiotic treatment, if received early, can save lives and chances of recovery are increased. However permanent disability or death can still occur. • Vaccinations are available and should be considered for: • Those living in close quarters • College students 25 years old or younger • Vaccinations are effective against four of the five most common bacterial types that cause 70 percent of the disease in the U.S. (but does not protect against all types of meningitis). • Vaccinations take seven to 10 days to become effective, with protection lasting three to five years. • The cost of vaccine varies, so check with your health care provider. • Vaccination is very safe - most common side effects are redness and minor pain at injection site for up to two days. • Vaccination is available at your health care provider. How can I find out more information? • Contact your own health care provider. • Contact your local or regional health department.

STUDENT RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, SAFETY

Parking

Parking can be a challenge. This is true at other colleges as well. Del Mar College has developed regulations for the purposes of: •  proper identification of vehicles of persons who have legitimate business with the College, •  to ensure safety/notification of students/faculty and other persons in an emergency, •  to provide orderly parking, traffic and use of parking facilities, •  to provide for the purchase and issuance of vehicle identification permits, •  to ensure pedestrian safety, and •  to provide for enforcement in the event of violation. The operation of a motor vehicle on Del Mar College property is governed by College policies and regulations. The fact that a violation notice is not issued when a violation occurs does not imply that the regulation or rule is not in effect. Each operator is responsible for knowing and following the parking rules and regulations. Campus Security has been charged with the authority to enforce these regulations, including the right to tow vehicles for specific violations and repeat violators. The owner or operator of a towed vehicle is responsible for the cost of towing and storage fees in addition to any other fines. Proof that a parking or traffic control device, sign, signal, or marking was in place at any location on the campus shall constitute prima facie evidence that it was official and was installed under proper authority by College, city, state and federal guidelines. The College assumes no responsibility for any vehicle or its content while the vehicle is parked or operated on College property. All vehicle operators should lock or otherwise secure their vehicles when parked on any campus of Del Mar College.

Definitions For the purpose of these parking and traffic regulations, the following terms are defined: Abandoned Vehicle - a motor vehicle, bicycle, or other conveyance parked on Del Mar College property for more than three days without being moved DMC - Del Mar College Campus - all property owned or controlled by Del Mar College College - Del Mar College Citation - Notification issued by a Corpus Christi police officer, which may be written to any vehicle found in violation of state law or city ordinances on DMC property Parking for Disabled Individuals - spaces or areas reserved for any disabled individual who has an appropriate (placard) hang tag or license plate from the County Tax Assessor’s Office Habitual Violator - any person who has received three or more violation notices within a twelve-month period

See “Vehicle Identification Permits� section. Parking Permit (Vehicle Identification Permit) - a temporary card or self-adhering decal issued by DMC, authorizing the motor vehicle properly displaying the permit to be lawfully parked within designated areas. The issuance and display of the permit serves as proper registration. Includes student permit, non-reserved permit and reserved permit. Reserved Parking - identified by signs and/or pavement markings; enforced at peak business hours of the day. New employees shall have the option of continuing the reserved space held by the former employee in that position so that performance of work in those offices requiring frequent trips between campuses and in the community may be facilitated. Restricted Parking - areas reserved for use by holders of designated permits Visitors - persons other than students, faculty members, staff members or employees of DMC Violation Notice - a notification issued by DMC Security for violations of parking and traffic regulations.

Parking Regulations Registration of Vehicles All vehicles parked on campus at any time must display (on rear windshield, passenger side) a Vehicle Identification Permit except for vehicles belonging to visitors during registration periods or one-day visits. Students are not currently assessed a parking registration fee. The College retains the option to assess a parking registration fee for students in the future. Procurement of a Vehicle Identification Permit by students or employees with non-reserved parking does not guarantee a specified parking space. Each driver is responsible for finding a legal parking space. Inability to locate a parking space is not an excuse for violating parking regulations. A Vehicle Identification Permit will not be issued to any person having unpaid violation charges until full payment is made at the Business Office. A Vehicle Identification Permit may not be purchased for or displayed by an individual ineligible to receive the permit. The College may suspend for a period of one year the parking privileges of individuals who violate this regulation.

87


STUDENT RIGHTS, RESPONSIBILITIES, SAFETY Vehicle Identification Permits Any person attending Del Mar College who is not employed by the College is eligible for a student Vehicle Identification Permit. Student workers may receive only student Vehicle Identification Permit. The process by which a student receives a Vehicle Identification Permit is as follows: 1.  The student completes the appropriate College parking registration card. 2.  The student submits the card to Campus Security. 3.  Campus Security issues a Vehicle Identification Permit to the student. Parking for Disabled Persons Del Mar College will follow state law regarding parking for disabled persons. Students, faculty and staff who have qualified and obtained a license plate or placard reflecting disability from the County Tax Assessor’s Office will be issued a non-reserved Vehicle Identification Permit. Those individuals may park in any parking space for disabled persons as long as their license plate reflects disabled status or their placard reflecting disability is hanging in their vehicle and clearly visible.

General Education and Core Curriculum Philosophy and Rationale General Education Competencies

The General Education Competencies at Del Mar College inform the educational experiences of all Associate Degree Graduates. All graduates will be able to demonstrate the following competencies: Writing, Reading, Speaking, Critical Thinking and Computer Literacy:

General Education Requirements

Support for the development of these competencies is located in the curriculum requirements for successful completion of the Associate in Arts (AA), Associate in Science (AS), Associate of Arts in Teaching (AAT) and the Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees. AA, AS, AAT The General Degree requirements for all transfer degrees at Del Mar College are prescribed by the core curriculum guidelines set forth by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board. Texas law requires that each public college and university identify and requires a core curriculum of at least 42 credits for its degrees designed to transfer. A student who completes 42-hour core curriculum at Del Mar College may transfer the block of courses to any other Texas public college. That college must count it for their core curriculum. The student will receive credit for each of the courses transferred. Only if the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has approved a larger core for the receiving institution can the student be required to take additional core curriculum courses. Students should consult with their advisors to ensure that the core curriculum courses they take are correct for their degree plan and for the major at the college or university to which they intend to transfer. The core curriculum supports the General Education Competencies of Del Mar College as it is structured to develop competencies in oral and written communication, reading comprehension and analysis, computer usage, critical thinking and mathematics. The core curriculum is further designed to give students breadth of knowledge in the liberal arts and to promote critical thinking skills that are fundamental to higher education. NOTE: Core courses that have a four digit course number beginning with a number “2� are sophomore-level courses except for MSCI 2371 and MSCI 2372.

Core Curriculum Intellectual Competencies, Perspectives, and Objectives For Component Areas Core Curriculum Intellectual Competencies The core curriculum is predicated on the judgment that a series of basic intellectual competencies - reading, writing, speaking, listening, critical thinking, and computer literacy - are essential to the learning process in any discipline and thus should inform any core curriculum. Although students can be expected to come to college with some experience in exercising these competencies, they often need further instruction and practice to meet college standards and, later, to succeed in both their major field of academic study and their chosen career or profession. Reading: Reading at the college level means the ability to analyze and interpret a variety of printed materials - books, articles and documents. A core curriculum should offer students the opportunity to master both general methods of analyzing printed materials and specific methods for analyzing the subject matter of individual disciplines. Writing: Competency in writing is the ability to produce clear, correct, and coherent prose adapted to purpose, occasion and audience. Although correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation are each a sine qua non in any composition, they do not automatically ensure that the composition itself makes sense or that the writer has much of anything to say. Students need to be familiar with the writing process including how to discover a topic and how to develop and organize it, how to phrase it effectively for their audience. These abilities can be acquired only through practice and reflection. Speaking: Competence in speaking is the ability to communicate orally in clear, coherent, and persuasive language appropriate to purpose, occasion and audience. Developing this competency includes acquiring poise and developing control of the language through experience in making presentations to small groups, to large groups and through the media. 97


Planning Your Academic Future Listening: Listening at the college level means the ability to analyze and interpret various forms of spoken communication. Critical Thinking: Critical thinking embraces methods for applying both qualitative and quantitative skills analytically and creatively to subject matter in order to evaluate arguments and to construct alternative strategies. Problem solving is one of the applications of critical thinking, used to address an identified task. Computer Literacy: Computer literacy at the college level means the ability to use computer-based technology in communicating, solving problems and acquiring information. Core-educated students should have an understanding of the limits, problems and possibilities associated with the use of technology, and should have the tools necessary to evaluate and learn new technologies as they become available. Core Curriculum Perspectives A critical component of the core curriculum is that it contains courses that help students attain the following perspectives: 1. Establish broad and multiple perspectives on the individual in relationship to the larger society and world in which he or she lives and to understand the responsibilities of living in a culturally and ethnically diversified world; 2. Stimulate a capacity to discuss and reflect upon individual, political, economic and social aspects of life in order to understand ways in which to be a responsible member of society; 3. Recognize the importance of maintaining health and wellness; 4. Develop a capacity to use knowledge of how technology and science affect their lives; 5. Develop personal values for ethical behavior; 6. Develop the ability to make aesthetic judgments; 7. Use logical reasoning in problem solving; and 8. Integrate knowledge and understand the interrelationships of the scholarly discipline. Objectives for Component Area of Communication The objective of a communication component of a core curriculum is to enable the student to communicate effectively in clear and correct prose in a style appropriate to the subject, occasion and audience. The exemplary educational objectives are: 1. To understand and demonstrate writing and speaking processes through invention, organization, drafting, revision, editing and presentation. 2. To understand the importance of specifying audience and purpose and to select appropriate communication choices. 3.

Fewer credits may be granted if you have scored less than 4 on any IB exam administered as part of the diploma program. The maximum credit that you can receive for the IB exams is 42 semester credit hours. You must apply for this credit as an entering freshman to the Registrar’s Office. The following documents are required in order for the evaluation to be completed: 1. Application for admission 2. Official International Baccalaureate Transcript 3. Compliance with the Texas Success Initiative Once all documents are received, the IB transcript will be evaluated for the award of credit, and you will be notified regarding the amount of credit awarded by the college. If you have not received the IB Diploma but have scored a 4 or above on an IB exam, you may also apply for credit.

Continuing Education (Noncredit) Programs

In addition to degrees, certificates and special credit programs discussed above, there are four noncredit options for you.

1. Continuing Education (Noncredit) Classes Noncredit courses, in a wide range of occupational fields, allow you to brush up your skills if you are already employed in a specific occupation. This training

110


Selecting A Program provides the opportunity for you to improve performance. These classes are not intended to qualify you for entry into an occupation, except in rare instances when the skills required by the occupation are limited.

2. GED Test Preparation and ABE (Adult Basic Education) Classes These classes are designed to help you take and pass the General Educational Development (GED) test. Adult Basic Education (ABE) classes help you improve your basic literary skills. To enroll, you must complete a four-day, 12-hour orientation. Orientations are offered monthly, year round. The program assists you with transition into college.

3. Continuing Education For each hour you participate in a professional continuing education experience, you may earn continuing education units (CEUs). Although no college credit is awarded, you can request a transcript showing number of CEUs earned upon satisfactory completion. However, CEUs are not counted toward a degree or certificate of achievement, nor do they transfer to semester hour programs or to other colleges.

4. ESL Survival English Classes These classes are designed to help you learn survival English communication skills. To enroll you need to call the ESL Hotline at (361) 698-1824 for enrollment information. The message is recorded in Spanish.

Reaching Your Goals

You probably have two overall goals for attending Del Mar College, either getting a job or transferring to earn a bachelor’s degree.

1. Graduate Guarantee for Job Competency Del Mar College guarantees that if you receive an Associate of Applied Science degree or Certificate of Achievement you will have job skills identified as “exit competencies” in the occupational field for which you have been trained. If you are judged by your employer to be lacking in specific technical job skills, you will be provided up to nine credit hours of additional skills training by the College tuition-free. Specific conditions apply to this guarantee. You and your employer should contact the appropriate instructional dean for details.

2. Transferring for a Bachelor’s Degree The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has developed a 42-semester credit hour Core Curriculum (discussed in detail in the following section) that is transferable among all accredited public institutions of higher learning in Texas. This ensures a smoother transfer process for you. If you plan to transfer, you should declare an Associate of Art or Associate of Science degree plan upon registering for the first semester at Del Mar. With proper planning, you can transfer 66 semester hours, or one-half of the degree requirements, whichever is less, to universities in the state.

Departments in the Health Sciences

Health sciences programs are organized into three Health Sciences Departments. Specific degree plan information is available by department. These programs are also responsible for closely related health sciences transfer degrees. The departments and their respective programs include:

Department of Allied Health Health Information Technology Program Medical Laboratory Technology Program Occupational Therapy Assistant Pharmacy Technology Program Physical Therapist Assistant Pre-Medical Technology (Transfer Plan) Respiratory Therapy Surgical Technology Department of dental and imaging technology Dental Assisting Dental Hygiene Diagnostic Medical Sonography Echocardiography Nuclear Medicine Radiologic Technology Department of NursE Education LVN-RN Bridge Track Pre-Nursing (Transfer Plan) Registered Nurse Education Vocational Nurse Education The certification programs in health sciences are designed: • to provide educational opportunities to students who desire employment in health or health-related facilities upon attainment of a certificate; • to provide students the opportunity to build upon their earned certificate and complete an Associate in Applied Science degree. The Associate in Applied Science degree programs in the health sciences are designed • to provide educational opportunities to high school or General Education Development (GED) graduates who desire to enter health programs leading to the associate degree; • to provide the first two years of education leading to the bachelor’s degree in health fields. If students intend to continue education at another institution, they should carefully relate these programs to those at the college to which they plan 122


Division of Business, Professional and Technology Education to transfer. Prospective students should consult with program advisor for specific information.

Accreditation and Approval

Programs are accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools as listed earlier in this catalog, and all are approved by the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, Community College and Technical Institutes Division. Specific programs are approved by the professional accrediting agency of each area; advisory committees and boards assist each department in curricula and standards.

Admission Requirements

Because of the highly specialized nature of some of the programs, additional requirements to the general College entrance requirements have been established, and prospective students are asked to investigate the requirements for a particular program in that section of the catalog. Admission to the College does not automatically qualify the student for admission to the health sciences programs. All of the following requirements must be met, each one as soon as possible, before the student is accepted. The student must: • take one or more of the following tests (depending on the department to which the student is seeking admission): THEA, ACT or SAT and/ or COMPASS, • provide references, • be a high school or GED graduate, • supply Registrar’s Office with copies of high school and college transcripts.

Transfer

Applicants transferring from other institutions should submit an official transcript of their college records, a statement of conditions of dismissal or withdrawal, and a departmental application. The department chairperson evaluates transcripts, and any questions regarding courses must be submitted to, and approved by him or her.

Requirements for Degrees

The associate degree programs are designed to be completed in a minimum of two years, including one or more summer sessions in some cases. The number of semester hours required varies from 62 to 72. Students should carefully examine requirements in specific programs. The certificate programs are designed so that students may transfer a specified number of semester hours to the degree program and complete 15 or more semester hours of required academic foundation for the associate degree.

123


Division of Business, Professional and Technology Education

Books and Tuition

Students are required to purchase their own textbooks and uniforms. They are required to wear a uniform during specified periods of instruction as a means of developing good professional dress habits.

Liability

In accordance with clinical affiliation policies, all health sciences students are required to purchase professional liability insurance in order to continue their program of study. Students are responsible for their own health and accident insurance.

Grades and Reports

Health sciences program grades are recorded as “A” (100-90); “B” (89-83); “C” (82-75); “D” (74-70); “F” (below 70) failing; and “P” (all RNSG clinical courses). A final grade of “D” or “F” in any course in the student’s major in the health sciences programs will automatically remove a student from eligibility to continue in that program until the unsatisfactory grades are removed. Removal can be done only by readmission to the program. A minimum grade of “C” is required for all health sciences students in all courses to remain in good standing in all health sciences programs. A student may be recommended for dismissal for failing grades, cheating, inappropriate behavior or attitude, or unsatisfactory clinical performance in any and all health sciences programs. An evaluation of unsatisfactory (unsafe) clinical performance will supersede any classroom grade and will, therefore, mean failure for the semester.

Child Development/Early Childhood

Department of Human Sciences and Education.........................(361) 698-2809 The Child Development/Early Childhood curriculum is designed to prepare an individual to educate and care for young children from birth through age 12. The program is designed to provide performance-based training in the skills needed to be a competent teacher or administrator in child care centers, preschool programs, family day homes, Head Start programs, or other early childhood programs. As part of the training, students are required to work directly with young children in the model laboratory on campus and in community early childhood programs. Students must demonstrate performance skills which meet the specific needs of children and work with parents and other adults to nurture children’s physical, social, emotional, and intellectual growth. Prior to field site placement, students are required to have a criminal history check, record of a negative TB test, and a food handler’s card. Students have a choice of two AAS degrees or two certificate plans. Students interested in pursuing a bachelor’s degree with an early childhood specialization leading to teacher certification should consult with a Child Development / Early Childhood advisor (361-698-2809). Certification requirements may change according to state regulations. Students should see their advisor for current information. Students should check specific requirements of the college or university to which they plan to transfer. A minimum grade of “C” is required for all CDEC students in their major field.

Emergency Medical Services

Department of Public Safety Education.....................................(361) 698-1724 Also see: Fire Science

The Emergency Medical Services Professions program is based upon the National Standard Curricula promulgated by the United States Department of Transportation as specified by the Texas Department of State Health Services and the current demands of the Emergency Medical Services industry for certification of persons at the Emergency Care Attendant, Emergency Medical TechnicianBasic, EMT-Intermediate, and EMT-Paramedic levels. Additionally, the Emergency Medical Services Professions program offers an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree that meets the requirements of the Texas Department of State Health Services for designation as a Licensed Paramedic. Paramedic coursework (either Certificate or Associate Degree level) is only begun in the Fall (for daytime classes) and the Spring (for evening classes). Students must apply to be accepted into either the day or evening paramedic programs. Students should contact the Emergency Medical Services Professions program office to begin the application process, to confirm due dates for applications, and to check on schedules. All applicants must meet the specific admission requirements of the EMS program, as well as those for a regularly enrolled student, including assessments. Clinical Rotations: Students in the program will perform clinical rotations at area hospitals and field internships with local Emergency Medical Services. Hospitals are accredited by the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO). JCAHO requires the following of all students in clinical rotations: current criminal history, drug screen (at most 30 days prior to beginning clinical rotations), Hepatitis “B” vaccination, TB testing, Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccination, and Diphtheria Pertussis Tetanus (DPT) vaccination. Students are also required to purchase certain uniforms and equipment prior to beginning clinical rotations and field internships. Students should contact the program Clinical Coordinator for a complete listing of requirements and where JCAHO requirements can be met. Course Completion: Students who successfully complete the course(s) of study required by the Texas Department of State Health Services will be allowed to take the appropriate National Registry certification exam as developed by The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. NOTE: The Texas Department of State Health Services may not allow persons to test to receive certification or licensure if they have been convicted of certain crimes above the level of a Class “C” misdemeanor. Driving While Intoxicated (DWI) or Driving Under the Influence (DUI) arrests or convictions may preclude the candidate from certification, no matter the level of arrest or conviction. Students who have convictions of this nature should contact the program director prior to enrollment. Students planning to continue toward an AAS degree, or continue their education, should consult with an advisor concerning degree requirements of the program or college to which transfer is intended.

Sound Recording Technology

The Associate in Applied Science degree in Sound Recording Technology (SRT) prepares students for jobs that intersect the skills used in audio recording, live sound, film/video and post-production, music retail, and small business ownership. This includes the operation of equipment and software used in studio recording and mixing, live venue console operation and sound reinforcement systems, non-linear video editing, and skills needed to operate a personal business related to the aforementioned fields. Strong emphasis is placed on technical ability and knowledge, aural skills and listening, creative problem solving, and musical understanding. All SRT students must complete courses in music theory, piano, ear training, directed business electives and an applied instrument (or voice) in addition to the music technology specific classes. Students must pass all MUSI and MUSC classes with a ‘C’ or better to advance to the next level or count as a prerequisite. The objectives for the Certificate in Sound Recording Business are more focused than the full AAS and the coursework is streamlined. The curriculum for the certificate directs the education of the student toward a small business ownership in music; primarily a project-oriented recording studio or for knowledge relevant for music retail.

Department of Dental and Imaging Technology........................(361) 698-2858

The Nuclear Medicine Technology Program combines academic study with clinical laboratory experience at affiliated hospitals. Graduates of the program may find employment in the areas of nuclear imaging, nuclear cardiology, radiopharmacy, and radiation quality control. A Nuclear Medicine Technologist, skilled in the diagnostic and therapeutic use of radiopharmaceuticals, is a health care professional who either gives these materials to a patient orally or who injects these materials into a patient’s bloodstream so the materials will concentrate in a specific organ or system of the individual. The technologist measures the structure and function of an organ in the body through photography with scintillation cameras and computers. Del Mar College is an open admissions college; however, acceptance into the Nuclear Medicine Technology Program is by selection. Positions in this program are limited, so program faculty are not able to accept all applicants into the program who meet basic admission requirements. Admissions decisions will be made on the applicant’s ranking through a point system.

Also see: Continuing Education and Noncredit Programs - Health Care

The Department of Nurse Education offers multiple entry/exit (MEEP) programs. Students may enter the vocational nursing (VN) or associate in applied science degree (AAS) registered nursing program. The AAS nursing program requires completion of all 4 semesters (see AAS Nursing suggested occupational plan). The AAS students may also choose to take 2 VN courses and be eligible to take the NCLEX-PN at the end of the third semester prior to completion of the AAS nursing program. The VN program allows students to progress through the first 3 semesters of the AAS program courses without the requirement of completing all general education courses (see Certificate: Vocational Nurse suggested occupational plan). These students will be eligible to return after completing the general education courses and complete the fourth semester of the AAS nursing program. The LVN articulating from other programs may take the LVN to RN Bridge course (see LVN to RN occupational plan). These students may substitute RNSG 1327/1263 for RNSG 1413/1160, 1201, 1441/1261, 1412/2160. Upon successful completion of either the LVN to RN Bridge or the generic AAS program, graduates receive the Associate in Applied Science degree and are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurse (NCLEX-RN) for licensure as a Registered Nurse. Graduates are eligible to continue their education at an upper-level institution. 270

The role of the RN is to work as a recognized member of the health care team in a variety of settings. The role of the VN is to work as recognized members of a health care team under the supervision of a registered nurse or physician. Del Mar College strives to provide the best nurse education in the state, and in doing so, seeks the most qualified applicants for its program. Admission requirements are set to provide the greatest possibility of success for students chosen for this program. Applicants are advised that this program uses a competitive admission process based on HESI A2 scores, program grade point averages (PGPA) (minimum 2.5 PGPA), and the number of program general education courses already completed. All prerequisites must be completed prior to the first semester of nursing. HPRS 1106 (Essentials of Medical Terminology) and HPRS 1204 (Basic Health Profession Skills) must have been taken within two years of beginning the program. Any or all of the remaining general education courses in the curriculum may be taken prior to admission to the nursing program. All subjects listed in the curriculum are required for graduation. When courses are not taken prior to their listed place in the curriculum, they must be completed in sequence. Clinical laboratory practice is evaluated as pass (satisfactory) or fail (unsatisfactory). Clinical courses are taken concurrently with nursing theory courses and must be repeated if accompanying theory courses are not successful. Opportunities for advanced placement either by tests or by evaluation of credentials are offered to persons experienced in nursing.
