SELECTING A PROGRAM OF STUDY www.lwtech.edu/advising

STARTING A NEW CAREER Deciding which career is best for you can be a very difficult decision. LWIT’s professional advisers and counselors are available to help you match your interests and abilities with the career that fits you best. The first step in starting your new career decision process is to take a self-inventory of what is most important to you. Below are some of the major things you need to consider: YOUR INTERESTS

Your interests play an important role in career selection. When you enjoy what you do, you increase your chances for success because you find your work satisfying and fulfilling. YOUR SKILLS AND ABILITIES

Identify what you are good at and then talk to others about your strengths. Your skills and abilities are the key to knowing yourself better and making a positive career decision. When you enter a program that features your strengths, class work will be easier for you. YOUR WORK STYLE

Think about the kind of work structure and the kind of environment you want to work in. Consider the amount of responsibility you want and the amount of stress you can handle. These personal characteristics affect your career success. Think about whether you prefer to work 2 0 1 3 - 2 0 1 4

L A K E

W A S H I N G T O N

alone or with others, be your own boss, work outdoors, work in a large company or a small business, or interact with the public. YOUR VALUES

You make all kinds of personal value decisions–where to live, what to do for entertainment, what kind of clothes to wear or food to eat. Think about these choices and by assessing them, you will help identify the priorities in your life. YOUR LIFESTYLE

The kind of career you choose can influence the kind of life you live. For example, some health care workers often work weekends, but they find the work rewarding and good for their self-esteem because it fulfills a personal value. ADVISING AND COUNSELING SERVICES

The college’s counselors and advisers are available to offer academic, career, and personal counseling to students and prospective students. Appointments are available by calling Student Development at (425) 739-8300. Advising services are also available online, and at advising@lwtech.edu.

Lake Washington Institute of Technology requires that persons seeking admission to a degree or certificate program of study demonstrate the ability to perform entry-level reading, writing and math skills before enrolling in a technical training program by completing a placement assessment. Additional testing in math, reading, writing, and listening skills for Adult Basic Education and English as a Second Language (ESL) placement is administered by the basic skills program using a different assessment tool. The purpose of these placement tests is to assess each student’s academic strengths and weaknesses, help determine proper course placement, and to determine possible learning needs before enrollment. Test results are used by students and advisers to select appropriate basic skill, academic and technical courses. An official college transcript indicating satisfactory completion with a 2.0 or better in English and/or math from an accredited college may be accepted in lieu of placement tests. An evaluation of official transcripts from an accredited college may also result in transfer of other college credits to Lake Washington Institute of Technology. Students must submit official copies of transcripts from all former colleges to Enrollment Services for an official evaluation. The college requires a minimum placement score in English and/or math for enrollment in many technical courses and programs. Placement score requirements for English, math and technical programs are available in student services, and the student assessment center where tests are administered. Exceptions to the published requisite scores for enrollment into specific courses and, in extraordinary cases, programs of study are made by the Dean(s) of the area of study or designee. Students who place into Adult Basic Education (ABE) or English as Second Language (ESL) classes must satisfactorily complete those courses at an appropriate level before enrolling in a technical program or college level course that has basic skill minimum requirements. Students who have not completed courses or placement tests in all subject areas (math, English) need to be tested or have placement scores in those areas for appropriate placement into courses.

FINANCIAL AID

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION PROCEDURE

West Building, W209 | (425) 739-8106 financialaid@lwtech.edu To help finance your education, we encourage you to inform yourself about financial aid through our website www.lwtech.edu/financialaid, by reading the available literature, or by contacting the Financial Aid Office. Lake Washington Institute of Technology believes people should have the opportunity to achieve their educational goals and the Financial Aid Office is here to help support you in your educational efforts. Financial aid is available for eligible students who enroll either to earn a certificate or a degree. Students and their families need not be low-income to qualify for some kinds of financial aid. By applying for financial aid as early as possible and meeting the institutional priority date, students have the best chance of being reviewed before the beginning of each quarter, and the best chance of maximum funds eligibility each financial aid year. Financial aid is intended to add to but not replace a person’s financial resources. If combined resources are not sufficient to cover expenses, you may be eligible for financial aid in the form of grants, scholarships, low-interest loans and student employment. You must demonstrate a financial need to be eligible for most types of assistance. Financial need is calculated as the difference between the cost of attending school and what you and your family can afford to pay. SAMPLE CALCULATION:

Cost of Attendance – Expected Family Contribution = Financial Need The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the basic form to apply for assistance and is your passport to financial aid. Information on this form determines your eligibility for grants, scholarships, work study and low-interest loans.

ƒƒ Complete and submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to the federal processor. This application collects financial data and other information used to calculate the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) that determines a student’s eligibility for aid. Students may complete their FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov, and many of the forms needed may be downloaded from the Financial Aid website at www.lwtech.edu/financialaid. ƒƒ Stay in touch with the Financial Aid Office to be certain that all information has been received to complete your file. ƒƒ Students must reapply for financial aid each year after January 1 for the new award year beginning with summer quarter. The financial aid year begins with summer quarter and ends with spring quarter.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS REQUIREMENTS FOR FINANCIAL AID RECIPIENTS

REINSTATEMENT

To continue to receive financial aid, students must meet Satisfactory Academic Process (SAP) requirements. Satisfactory Academic Progress includes qualitative and quantitative measures, as well as maximum time frame requirements. The information below is a summary of key requirements. QUALITATIVE MEASURE

All students on or applying for financial aid must complete a minimum number of credits, with a quarterly and cumulative GPA of at least 2.0. QUANTITATIVE MEASURE

Full-time students need to complete at least 12 credits per quarter, three-quarter time students at least 9, and half-time students at least 6. Less than half-time students must complete all credits attempted. Students who fail to meet the quarterly or cumulative GPA requirements or who fail to complete the minimum number of credits for their enrollment status for one quarter may be placed on warning status for the next quarter and may receive aid; however, certain limitations apply. Students who fail SAP requirements for 2 consecutive quarters, or fail to complete at least 50% of credits (or all credits for less than half-time students), for the minimum enrollment level attempted in any one particular quarter will be placed on suspended status and will be ineligible for further aid.

Financial aid may be re-instated after students have completed, at their own expense, a quarter at the minimum level they were enrolled in (full-time, half-time, etc.), during the quarter for which their aid was cancelled (this does not apply to students who have reached the maximum time frame limitation). The classes must be at LWIT and the student must meet all applicable satisfactory academic progress requirements while completing the required credits. Awarding of financial aid for reinstated students is on a funds-available basis only.

Maintaining Eligibility for Financial Aid

5

APPEAL PROCESS

In some cases there may be extraordinary circumstances (beyond the student’s control), which may be considered for students whose aid has been suspended. A written petition, along with supporting documentation, may be submitted for consideration. Students whose aid is reinstated through the appeal process will be placed on probation status in their next quarter of attendance. Awarding of financial aid for reinstated students is on a funds-available basis only. The Financial Aid Office reserves the right to determine continued eligibility. Other conditions to maintain satisfactory academic progress for financial aid may apply. To view or print the complete policy, visit: www.lwtech.edu/financialaid.

MAXIMUM TIME FRAME AND PROGRAM LIMITATIONS

Students must complete the program they are pursuing in no more than 150% (or 125% for the State Need Grant) measured in attempted credits. For example, if a student is pursuing an AAS degree which requires 100 credits to complete, the maximum time frame would be 150 attempted credits (125 for the State Need Grant), regardless of whether the credits were funded by financial aid or not. Students must also meet pace of progression standards, indicating they will complete their program within the maximum time frame allowed (please see the complete policy for details). Students may receive financial aid at LWIT for a maximum of 2 programs.

eLEARNING elearning@lwtech.edu

Academic Information

There are three types of eLearning courses. Each type requires the same amount of course work per credit hour, but there are differences in how much is conducted in the classroom versus online. WEB ENHANCED

These classes are conducted with a traditional classroom schedule, but also utilize online systems for activities such as posting class announcements and grades or submitting assignments. HYBRID, OR BLENDED

These are classes that replace some – but not all – classroom time with online learning. For instance, a class that would ordinarily meet five days a week might meet three days a week and substitute online activities to replace the other two class sessions. ONLINE

These are classes conducted 100% online. Students should expect to spend several hours each week working online during the quarter, and never meet their instructor face to face. Online classes include scheduled assignments and activities and are not typically self-paced. Below are questions you should consider before enrolling in an online or hybrid course: DO YOU HAVE YOUR OWN COMPUTER AND INTERNET ACCESS AT HOME?

It is very important for students in online or hybrid classes to have reliable access to a computer with an internet connection. If you do not have access to these at home or work, you can use the student computer labs on campus when they are open and available. For online or hybrid classes, you may need to spend 2-3 hours at a time at the computer, several days each week. HOW ARE YOUR TECHNOLOGY SKILLS?

A student in a fully online class needs to be able to: ƒƒ use email ƒƒ use web browsers ƒƒ use word processing software

172

2 0 1 3 - 2 0 1 4

L A K E

W A S H I N G T O N

ƒƒ download files ƒƒ create attachments ƒƒ solve problems that may arise by doing tasks such as clearing browser histories, clearing cookies, and adjusting browser plugins If you do not have these skills, you may be better suited to hybrid and web-enhanced courses, rather than fully online courses. In addition, we recommend you find the tutoring, resources or basic classes you need to learn the above skills to be fully successful in web-enhanced and hybrid courses. HOW COMFORTABLE ARE YOU WITH ASKING FOR HELP WHEN YOU NEED IT?

In an online course, you need to be able to research answers from the materials the instructor has provided, as well as communicate via email or discussion posts with your instructor and fellow students. Students who are most successful in online and hybrid courses are comfortable finding help and asking for support when they need it. HOW MUCH TIME DO YOU HAVE TO DEVOTE TO AN ONLINE CLASS, WORKING AT A COMPUTER WITH AN INTERNET CONNECTION?

In a typical online course, you will spend 10-15 hours per week online completing coursework. Online classes have the same work load as face to face classes, without dedicated classroom time to complete coursework. Students in online classes need to be able to organize and plan how they will accomplish these tasks independently. DO YOU HAVE THE PERSONALITY TRAITS & SKILLS THAT CONTRIBUTE TO SUCCESS IN ONLINE LEARNING:

Students who are successful in online courses usually have the following characteristics: ƒƒ self-motivated, self-disciplined and organized ƒƒ effective time management skills ƒƒ strong reading comprehension skills ƒƒ strong writing skills ƒƒ comfortable participating in online class discussions and providing feedback ƒƒ interest in and curiosity about new technologies

CREDITS AND CREDIT LOAD The academic year is divided into three quarters of approximately eleven weeks each, while also running an eight-week summer quarter (the length of individual courses may differ). In order to complete certificate or degree requirements in the prescribed number of quarters, a suggested course load per quarter will be approximately 15 to 20 credits. A lecture class which meets five hours per week for one quarter will yield five quarter credits. Lab courses require ten hours of class time per week for five credits. Special permission is needed to carry more than 25 credits.

Students enrolled in 12 or more credits are considered full-time. Some programs may require higher quarterly credit loads to complete requirements in a specified time period. Some external agencies may use different credit values to calculate full-time status. Students registered for fewer than full-time credits as defined above are considered part-time.

GRADUATION The student is responsible for working with his or her adviser to meet all degree or certificate requirements. Automated degree checks are available for various academic programs and time periods through online services on the campus website. To receive a preliminary evaluation before the final quarter starts, students must apply to graduate by the second week of the preceding quarter. Students should apply to graduate by the fourth week of the preceding quarter. Applications received after that may be deferred to a future quarter. Commencement is held yearly in June. Students who complete a program during the preceding summer, fall, winter and spring quarters, or the following summer, are invited to participate.

Some programs offer other special awards that are not posted to the transcript. In accordance with state law, students are expected to complete their degree and certificate programs within a suitable length of time or number of credits. See Enrollment Services or the student handbook for details.

GRADING

FULL- AND PART-TIME STUDENT STATUS

NOTE: For financial aid purposes, the financial aid office should be consulted for definitions of three-quarter time, half-time, and less than half-time since the level of enrollment affects aid eligibility.

174

Graduation is recorded on student transcripts two-to-four weeks after the end of the student’s final quarter. Diplomas are sent to students four to six weeks after the end of the final quarter.

Lake Washington Institute of Technology uses a numeric grading system for most courses. Instructors may report grades from 4.0 to 0.7 in 0.1 increments and the grade of 0.0. Grades in the range of 0.6 to 0.1 are not assigned. A grade of 0.7 earns credits; however, a minimum grade of 2.0 is required for a number of purposes including technical courses, academic core requirements, progression in a sequence of classes, to satisfy a prerequisite, and graduation requirements. Numerical grades may be considered equivalent to letter grades as follows: Points Letter 4.0 A Excellent performance 3.9-3.7 A- 3.6-3.3 B+ 3.2-3.0 B Above-average performance 2.9-2.7 B- 2.6-2.3 C+ 2.2-2.0 C Average performance 1.9-1.7 C- 1.6-1.3 D+ 1.2-1.0 D Minimum performance 0.9-0.7 D- 0.6-0.0 F Unsatisfactory performance I – INCOMPLETE

An incomplete grade may be given if the student is doing passing work, is unable to complete the requirements of the course during the quarter and can complete the requirements within a contracted period of time. The student does not reregister for the course in a later quarter to remove the incomplete within the contracted period of time.

A student may officially withdraw from any course through the eighth week of the quarter (or the equivalent for a short course or courses with irregular start or end dates) by completing a withdrawal form and submitting it to Enrollment Services. Official withdrawals occurring after the tenth instructional day of the quarter are posted with a W on the student’s permanent transcript. Withdrawals do not count in the GPA calculations and cannot be assigned by faculty in the grading process.

N – AUDIT

Y – IN PROGRESS

Audit means the student registered on a space-available basis to attend the class and to listen, but not do graded work. The N grade does not earn credit and does not affect the GPA. The audit grade option must be approved by the instructor and submitted to Enrollment Services by the eighth week of the quarter.

A Y grade is given to students who are doing passing coursework in basic skill classes (ABE, ESL, etc.) but need additional instruction and time to complete course requirements. Students are required to re-register for the course and pay all tuition and any other charges. The Y remains on the transcript for the quarter assigned, while the final grade will be posted to the quarter in which the student re-enrolled in the course. The Y grade earns no credit and does not affect the GPA.

NG – NO GRADE

NG means the course is “not graded” for any student taking the course. This applies, for example, to some non-credit courses. It would not appear on graded, credit courses. NG does not affect the GPA and does not earn credits. It does not indicate whether a student attended, just that the student enrolled. R – REPEATING A COURSE

The qualifier R on a transcript means a course has been repeated, and is excluded from credits and grade point average. A student may repeat any course taken at LWIT in which a grade of less than 2.0 or a U was earned. All grades will still appear on the transcript whether repeated or not. If the most recent grade is lower than the earlier grade, the student may request the registrar to count just the higher grade in the GPA. S/U – SATISFACTORY/UNSATISFACTORY

S/U grading is used for work experience, clinical, and skill development courses. The S indicates a satisfactory level of performance by the student. By assigning an S grade, the instructor certifies a performance level of at least a 2.0 or higher. Credit is earned but the S does not affect the GPA calculation. A U grade is assigned when the level of performance is below 2.0. A U grade does not earn credit and does not affect the GPA.

Academic Information

When an I (Incomplete) grade is given by an instructor, a contract is filed with Enrollment Services stating the work necessary to remove the Incomplete, a date for completion, and the grade earned if not completed. Incomplete coursework must be completed by the required date as established by the instructor (this date may be no later than the end of the subsequent quarter of enrollment). At the time of graduation, the Incomplete will be changed to a 0.0 or to the grade assigned on the contract.

Z – UNOFFICIAL WITHDRAWAL

Students who attend briefly, rarely, or not at all, and who fail to withdraw from a course with a W grade, may be assigned a grade of Z if appropriate in the judgment of an administrator. The Z grade does not earn credit and does not count in the GPA calculation. * (ASTERISK)

This symbol (asterisk) means the grade has not been assigned yet. The student should consult with his or her instructor. This grade does not affect the GPA and does not earn credits. Note however that a * grade could prevent a student from receiving honors, impede financial aid eligibility, block graduation, or result in a student being considered in academic difficulty. It is important that all enrolled courses be assigned valid grades.

ACADEMIC GRADE FORGIVENESS POLICY

GRADE POINT AVERAGE (GPA)

In order to compensate for the effects of circumstances in a student’s past that may have negatively affected his or her GPA, LWIT offers a grade forgiveness policy. This procedure can be accomplished through an appeal filed with the registrar. The following criteria must be met to be eligible for such an appeal:

The grade point average indicates the general achievement of the student. The quarterly GPA includes only classes for that specific quarter; the cumulative GPA includes all classes which comprise the student’s academic history at LWIT. GPA is calculated by dividing the grade points by the number of credits of the courses for which the student was awarded a decimal grade. Grade points are calculated by multiplying the number of credits by the numeric value of the grade for each course. The calculation does not include courses for which the student was awarded Z, Y, N, W, I, S, U, or other non-decimal grades.

1. Grades must be three or more years old. 2. Only quarters including credits graded below a 2.0 may be forgiven. 3. Grade forgiveness can include one
