Careers

Empl ID (Student ID)

The College’s Student Information System organizes its course offerings into sections, known as careers. When registering online or by telephone, students will be prompted to select the appropriate career for the type of offering that they wish to register for. The career used at Reynolds for all credit courses is the Credit (CRED) career. The continuing education (CEU), non-credit (CNED), and quarter credit careers are listed for historical purposes only and should not be used.

The Empl ID is a unique 7-character number assigned to each student that serves as a student identification number.

Community College Workforce Alliance (CCWA)

Learning Communities

The Community College Workforce Alliance is a cooperative partnership between J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College and John Tyler Community College dedicated to supporting economic development and providing world-class workforce training and services to both the public and private sectors in the Richmond, Tri-cities, and surrounding counties. A variety of non-credit workforce development and lifelong learning courses are offered through the Alliance.

Concurrent Enrollment High school and home schooled juniors and seniors may be permitted to enroll in college-level courses prior to graduating from high school. The College must receive written permission from the student’s high school principal for each requested semester or term. All high school students are required to complete all portions of the COMPASS placement test and earn minimal required scores before enrolling in any classes at the College. Notes: High school students are not eligible to apply for financial aid. The parent of home school students will be recognized as the principal. Registration for concurrent students must take place on campus at one of the Student Success Centers.

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Continuing Education Units (CEUs) are nationally recognized units of measurement for postsecondary-level studies that do not include academic credit. CEUs are designed for use where employers, licensure agencies, and other authorities require a specific number of hours of study for careeradvancement purposes.

Curricular Curricular students are students who have satisfied general college curricular and any additional program admission requirements and are enrolled in credit or developmental courses for the purpose of earning a degree, certificate, or career studies certificate.

Students who are taking dual enrollment courses may receive both high school and college credit. High school students are not eligible to apply for financial aid.

Hybrid Courses Hybrid courses are credit courses that require both online and on-campus class meetings. In hybrid courses, half of the instruction will be in the classroom with the instructor and the other half will be completed online. Learning Communities are linked courses taught by a team of faculty members who connect the concepts of their disciplines under a common theme or question in a fun, creative, and flexible setting.

Fall 2011 Registration Information

Eight Steps to

Taking Credit Courses 1. APPLY AND DETERMINE YOUR ENROLLMENT STATUS 2. GET YOUR EMPL ID 3. PREPARE TO ENROLL 4. PLAN YOUR FINANCES 5. ENROLL IN CLASSES 6. PAY TUITION 7. CONFIRM YOUR CLASS SCHEDULE 8. BUY YOUR BOOKS

STEP 1 APPLY AND DETERMINE YOUR ENROLLMENT STATUS If you are new to the College, are taking credit classes for the first time, or are returning after an absence of three years or more (before Summer 2008), complete the Application for Admission found online at reynolds.edu, under the Future Students section. Students who complete the online application will receive immediate feedback from the College. If the on-line application is completed successfully, the new student will be issued a student ID number (Empl ID). Upon completion of the on-line application, students should print the application and confirmation page for their records. If you are a student that has attended a VCCS college in the past, please see Step 2. It is important that you use your existing Empl ID and do not create a new one. Students may also download and complete the Application for Admission from reynolds.edu/forms. The completed application can be either mailed or faxed to the college. Once received by the College, paper applications require at least two business days to process. Disclosure of your social security number is not required during application, but it is highly recommended. Disclosure ultimately will be required for most students at the time of enrollment, per Section 6050S of the Restructuring

10

and Reform Act of 1998, or at the time of disbursement of federal financial aid, per 34 Code of Federal Regulations Part 668.36. The VCCS will only use your social security number in accordance with federal and state reporting requirements and for identification and research purposes within the VCCS. It shall not permit further disclosure unless required or authorized by the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, 20 U.S.C. Code 1232G or pursuant to your obtained consent. You must be admitted to the College prior to taking placement tests and as a degree-seeking student in order to be considered for financial aid. You do not need to reapply if you have taken credit classes within the past three years. If you left the College on Academic Dismissal, refer to page 22 for information about getting reinstated. Whether new or returning, note that placement testing may be required (see Step 3); financial aid and scholarship applications and documents must be completed by the deadlines (see Step 3); and early-bird registration begins on July 11 (see Calendar of Dates and Times).

STEP 2 GET YOUR EMPL ID As a new student, once your application has been processed, you will be issued a JSRCC student ID number, known as the Empl ID. You will need your Empl ID for all on-campus, web, and telephone services. If you are a returning student and need assistance with locating your Empl ID number or are unsure of your number, check My JSRCC, call the Reynolds Information Center (804) 371-3000, or visit a computer lab on one of the campuses. If you have more than one Empl ID due to enrollment at another VCCS (Virginia Community College System) institution, and need assistance determining the correct Empl ID number to use for transactions at JSRCC, please call (804) 523-5029.

For a complete list of classes available this fall, visit reynolds.edu.

Anticipated financial aid will be automatically posted to student accounts, and tuition and fees will automatically be charged to each student’s financial aid after the last day to drop a class with a refund.

E. OUT-OF-STATE STATUS APPEALS New applicants should verify their residency classification on the Web Application Confirmation Sheet or in their letter of admission. On occasion, applicants will be classified as out-of-state due to incomplete or incorrect application responses. To inquire about a possible correction of out-of-state status, students should send an E-mail request with their full name and Empl ID to admissions@ reynolds.edu. Students may need to submit supporting documentation or appeal for further consideration. Because this process can require several weeks, students should inquire immediately upon admission. The domicile status must be determined by the first day of class. Requests for review of domicile that are received after the first day of classes will be considered for subsequent semesters only. Continuing students who have enrolled with out-of-state tuition status may request a review by submitting the residency portion of the Application for Admission to the Student Success Center. The domicile officer informs students of needed documentation and the appeal process, as needed. Appeal deadlines for continuing students are listed below: Fall Status, August 1 Spring Status, December 1 Summer Status, April 1

Fall 2011 Registration Information

All Students

Additional Information ATTENDANCE J. Sargeant Reynolds requires that faculty document and report student attendance. Students who register for a course and fail to attend or communicate with the instructor by the drop deadline for the course will be dropped from the course. Students who stop performing courserelated academic activities (attending class, completing class assignments, taking tests, etc.) or communicating with the instructor for a period of 2-3 weeks before the official withdrawal date for the course will be withdrawn from the course with a grade of W. Individuals who stop performing course related academic activities after the official withdrawal date for the course will receive a grade of F. It is important to note that students should not stop attending classes and rely on the institution to drop or withdraw them from a course. Students should go to a campus Student Success Center and complete the necessary paperwork within the designated deadline in order to ensure that their intended action be accurately reflected on their transcript.

AUDITING CLASSES Audited classes earn no grade-point credits and carry a grade of X. Students enrolled in classes for credit may not switch to audit after the last day to drop. Additionally, students that wish to change the status of a class from audit to credit must complete the request prior to the last day to drop the class. Permission of the school dean or another appropriate academic administrator is required to audit a course.

CANCELLED/CHANGED CLASSES Each class is offered on the condition of adequate enrollment, and the College reserves the right to cancel or discontinue any course because of low enrollment or for other reasons the College deems necessary. The College also reserves the right to make the necessary changes in this schedule that may be dictated by enrollment, personnel requirements, or availability of facilities. Refunds are generally processed after the Last Day to Drop deadline(s).

COMPLETING “INCOMPLETE” CLASSES Students who receive an “I” (Incomplete) grade for a course should not register for the same course

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS

Maximum Time Frame

Students must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) to receive financial aid. Satisfactory academic progress means successfully finishing your program of study within an acceptable time frame.

The U.S. Department of Education expects students to complete their plan requirements within 150% of the published length of that plan in credit hours. Developmental/ESL hours do not count in this total. For example, a student in the Accounting AAS plan (length 66 credit hours) will lose his/her eligibility after 99 attempted credit hours if he/she has not finished the plan. Students can calculate their own 150% rate by finding the total credits in their plan from the catalog.

Some SAP Facts: • F=U=W=I Grades of F, U, W, or I negatively impact your SAP equally. • Time alone does not repair poor performance. Classes taken 5, 10, 15, or 20 years ago can affect your SAP today! • SAP standards are tougher than the College Academic Standing requirements. • Academic Renewal does not automatically reinstate your eligibility.

HOW TO KEEP YOUR FINANCIAL AID

Total Plan Credits_________ x 1.5 = _________ Your Maximum Time Frame Please Note: Transfer credits are included in the 150% calculation.

Grade Point Average

Students must meet the following cumulative grade To keep eligibility for loans, grants, and work-study, point standards to be eligible for aid: students should: Attempted Credit Hours Minimum GPA • Successfully complete classes, avoid excessively withdrawing from classes and receiving grades of 17-23 1.00 F, U, or I (a D is better than a W). 24-35 1.50 • Submit the FAFSA each year by April 15. 36-47 1.75 • Submit requested documents in a timely manner. 48 + 2.00

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS STANDARDS Completion Rate A student must successfully complete two-thirds (67%) of all the credit and developmental hours they attempt. Completion rates will be assessed at the point a student has attempted 17 credit hours or 50% of the program requirements, whichever comes first. Successful completion means a grade of A, B, C, D, S, R or P. Grades of F, U, W, I, and missing grades represent hours not completed. Federal law requires the College to count all credits attempted at the College.

24

The standards in the table above are absolute minimums. Students should strive to do much better than the minimum.

IF YOU DO NOT MEET THE STANDARDS Assessment The Financial Aid office checks each student’s eligibility at the end of each semester (Fall, Spring, and Summer) and cancels future aid for students who do not meet the satisfactory academic progress standards.

Notification The Financial Aid office will notify students of their status by placing a message on My JSRCC and by mailing letters to students.


Financial Aid Students (including loan recipients)

Appeal

Stay Informed

Students with mitigating circumstances (personal illness, death of immediate family member, etc.) that occurred during the problem semester(s) may go to a campus Student Success Center and obtain a “Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal� form or download the form from the financial aid website at reynolds.edu/studentaffairs/faid.htm. Completed forms should have copies of documents that confirm the mitigating circumstances and should be returned to the Student Success Center by the deadline on the form. Please note that students are only allowed two SAP appeal approvals at J. Sargeant Reynolds Community College.

Students should work closely with their academic advisor and choose their courses wisely. Students who are uncertain about their SAP status should consult a financial aid specialist in a campus Student Success Center.

Students must be proficient in basic computer skills and be able to attend the required on-campus class meetings in order to be successful in these courses. Students should carefully read the section comments in the schedule before registering for any hybrid course. Hybrid course sections will have the following section identifiers

Reynolds Learning Communities “More courses . . . Less class time!”

– Katy Dunn, Reynolds Learning Community student

A learning community is when two (or more) course sections in the same semester are linked together and the same students enroll in both course sections. Classes are typically backto-back, or at the same time on alternating days - so your first benefit is getting a better, more convenient class schedule. What do computers and English have in common? Or art and history? A lot if they’re a part of a Reynolds Learning Community. Learning Communities take apparently unrelated courses and link them together with a theme and a team of professors. “Courses are easier to deal with because they are linked together,” said Reynolds Learning Community student, Kelly McIntosh. Students in LCs are usually more satisfied with their college experience, do better in their classes and return in the following semesters to complete their programs and goals.
