What is this? A QR Code is a unique bar code readable by mobile phones with a camera, smart phones, or QR code scanners. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on white background. Just like the one here. You might be starting to see these codes in magazines and on posters, but most of you probably don’t know what they are or what to do with them. These codes aren’t there for some unknown, mysterious business use…they are there for you!

Proxy information Your written permission is needed anytime you authorize someone else to conduct any transactions in the Admissions and Records Office on your behalf. You will need to provide your proxy with the following: • Written permission, which includes your proxy’s name, your signature, and detailed information on what transaction you authorize them to do; • Student ID number and birth date; • Your name, address and telephone number. Your proxy will need to show a valid photo ID before any transactions are completed.

Attendance If you miss the first class meeting or are absent for the equivalent of two weeks without approval, you may be dropped by the instructor. If you do not attend class but fail to drop the class by the refund deadline, you are still responsible for the registration fees.

Withdrawing from a class You must officially drop classes through the online or telephone registration system or at the Admissions and Records Office. Nonattendance can result in an “F” grade and will cause you to lose your enrollment fees. If the class fee has not been paid and the class is not officially dropped, the unpaid fee will become an outstanding debt on your record. It is the student’s responsibility to drop a class, not the instructor’s. If a class is dropped before 25 percent of the instruction time has elapsed, a grade will not appear on your record. If 75 percent or more of the instruction time has elapsed, you cannot withdraw and will be subject to an “F” grade.

Fees Enrollment fees* • $26 per unit for California residents • $216 per unit ($190 per unit plus $26 per unit enrollment fee) for students who are U.S. citizens or permanent residents, and are not California residents or for students who are not U.S. citizens * Note: All fees are subject to change by the state legislature. Check www.dvc.edu/fee for updated fee information. Other fees • The optional $8 student activity fee offers discounts for student related activities. • A $1 per unit student union fee helps pay for the maintenance of the student center. The maximum fee is $10 per student per academic year.

Parking fees The parking fee is $3 a day or $40 for the terms fall or spring. The summer fee is $20. College parking permits are required daily except weekends (Friday 5 p.m. through Monday 7 a.m.) and holidays. Parking permits must be purchased online through WebAdvisor, under the Academic services menu. The parking fee is $20 per term for students who qualify for the Board of Governors Enrollment Fee Waiver. DVC parking permits are also valid at CCC and LMC campuses. Parking at the San Ramon Valley Center is free. Contact all other off-campus locations for their parking policies. Outstanding debts If you have any outstanding debts, you will be blocked from registration or from obtaining academic transcripts and diplomas until those debts are cleared. Pay debts at the Cashier’s Office. Debts are subject to district collection processes.

Fee refunds To receive a fee refund, students must withdraw from school or drop class by the refund eligibility deadline. (Please see the Calendar of Important Dates, page 3, or check with your instructor for deadlines.) Refund checks for complete or partial withdrawals from school will be processed after the first two weeks of instruction. Refund checks will be mailed to the student address on file in the college Admissions and Records Office. If you have a new address, please notify the office as soon as possible. If you paid online by credit card, a refund will be issued to the credit card used for payment. Non-resident tuition refunds: To obtain a refund for non-resident tuition, your request must be made at the Cashier’s Office. You will not receive a refund if you: • stop attending class and do not officially withdraw from the course, • withdraw from the course after the refund deadline, • owe other outstanding debts to the college. A detailed refund policy is posted in the Cashier’s Office. Refunds for over $1,000 must be requested at the Cashier’s Office.

Details regarding the refund policy are available from the Cashier’s Office or the Admissions and Records Office. Parking permit refunds Parking fee refunds will be made if the student drops all classes within the first two weeks of instruction for semester-length classes or by 10 percent of the length of short-term classes. The parking decal must be returned to the Cashier’s Office for a refund. The refund check will be mailed to the student according to the same refund processing cycle as enrollment fee refunds.

This refund policy complies with and is based upon California law and the Education Code.

Prerequisites Enrolling in DVC courses with prerequisites or co-requisites Students enrolling in a course with a prerequisite must complete that prerequisite with a “C” grade or better before they are allowed to register. A course has a prerequisite to ensure that a student has the appropriate body of knowledge to be successful. Courses with a co-requisite require that a student either has taken the co-requisite before or is taking it at the same time as the course. Please note: dropping a class with a corequisite will result in a drop from both classes. Usually a prerequisite is a course from a lower sequence of courses. For example, students may not enroll in Math 142 (Elementary Statistics with Probability) without first passing Math 120 (Intermediate Algebra) with a “C” grade or better, or the equivalent. Usually, a co-requisite course is a lab or a course that provides supplemental instruction. To see which courses have prerequisites and/ or co-requisites see the individual course offerings in the catalog. To register for a course with a prerequisite Students who have completed the prerequisite course with a “C” grade or higher, at DVC fall 1999 or later, will have the prerequisite automatically cleared upon registration. If the prerequisite course was completed at DVC, CCC or LMC prior to fall 1999, contact the Admissions and Records Office. If the prerequisite course was completed at another educational institution, the Admissions and Records Office must clear the requirement prior to registering either online or by telephone.

All prerequisite forms must have the appropriate documentation attached. Online or telephone registration There are a two ways to do this: 1. submit an unofficial or official transcript with a prerequisite form to the Admissions and Records Office; OR 2. fax an unofficial transcript with a prerequisite form. If approved, the prerequisite will be cleared within two to three business days. If denied, the student will be notified. In person registration Students may submit an official or unofficial transcript along with a prerequisite form at the time of their registration appointment and register in person.

Student academic responsibilities You are expected to attend classes, do class work on time, and complete each course. You are also expected to maintain regular progress towards an educational goal. Rights Among your rights as a student, you may file a complaint on the grounds that DVC failed to make a good faith effort to help you develop an educational plan or provide a specified service. Waivers, appeals and complaints Students requesting waivers or filing appeals or complaints under the Title 5 Matriculation Rights must submit a form to the Admissions and Records Office. The dean of outreach, enrollment and matriculation will consider the appeal or complaint. If the appeal or request for waiver is not granted, the student may appeal to the vice president of student services.

Academic honesty DVC students are expected to be truthful and ethical in their academic work. Academic dishonesty is defined as an act of deception in which a student claims credit for the work or effort of another person or uses unauthorized materials or fabricated information in any academic work. Academic dishonesty is a violation of the DVC Student Code of Conduct and will not be tolerated.

Student Code of Conduct The Student Code of Conduct is available at www.dvc.edu/code . This code includes important information about students’ rights and responsibilities on campus. The code contains specific rules and regulations governing student behavior, along with the consequences for violating these rules. If you would like a hard copy of the Student Code of Conduct, visit the Student Life Office in the Student Union Building.

Policies Diablo Valley College is open to any California resident 18 years or older, or who has earned a high school diploma or proficiency certificate, or to current high school students who qualify. Smoking policies In recognizing the serious health risks associated with smoking, wishing to discourage both students and staff from becoming smokers, and recognizing the rights of nonsmokers to a reasonably smoke-free environment, the following policy applies: • At the Pleasant Hill campus, smoking will be allowed only in the parking lots. • At the San Ramon Valley Center, smoking will be allowed only in the student parking lots. • Restrictions at other educational sites will be established by those sites and by state and local law. Adherence to this policy relies on the initiative of nonsmokers to politely request that smokers follow the policy and on the courtesy of smokers to follow the policy. Willful or persistent smoking in any area where smoking has been prohibited by law or by regulation is a violation of the Student Code of Conduct and can be grounds for disciplinary action. A drug-free DVC It is DVC’s policy to maintain a campus where students are prohibited from the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of controlled substances as listed in Schedules I through IV of Section 202 of the Controlled Substances Act (21 U.S.C.

Mentors from the business or professional community share their personal, academic and career experience with the students.

Studies indicate that community colleges with Puente programs transfer 44 percent more Latino students to the University of California than colleges without Puente.

DIABLO VALLEY COLLEGE

Ca LEED Gold certified

ect mpus Commons proj

has always used the color GREEN... but now green is our new ATTITUDE!

n We’re going paperless -- printing fewer schedules and catalogs, which

Solar panels in parking lo electricity fo ts 1 , 3, and 4 prov ide r campus use

makes them cost a little more, but it's the right thing to do for our planet. n We’ll soon be breaking ground on our new LEED Gold certified Campus Commons project! n Our gorgeous new transit center makes taking public transportation to campus easier than ever! The County Connection even offers new hybrid buses on many transit lines. n Our solar parking lots are saving thousands of dollars on energy costs while protecting our cars from the winter rain, and the summer heat. n Our new parking lot landscaping is draught resistant, conserving precious resources. n We’re teaching more classes online so students don’t have to commute to campus as often. n We’re increasing our recycling efforts - - watch for the recycle bins for bottles, cans and recyclable paper.

Join the GREEN revolution for a more sustainable campus and a more sustainable planet.
