Dear KCC Students, On behalf of the college and Student Affairs, welcome to KCC! Please remember, no matter what your passion is – no matter why you’ve chosen KCC – we are here to help you get the most out this experience. As the Vice President of Student Affairs, and one of the newest members to the KCC team, I am excited to take part in watching you grow as members of our community, as students and as human beings. Know that with the right attitude and dedication, this could be the most pivotal time of your life. Through strengthening ties, growth and embracing the latest technologies, much has changed in the past year. We now offer a number of new programs, courses, degrees and certificates for you to choose from, both in a traditional classroom settings, online and hybrid scenarios. Through the Advanced Diploma and Dual Credit programs, the transition from high school into college has never been easier. And if KCC isn’t your last stop as life-long learners, widening articulation agreements with our four-year university partners – offering zero loss of credit upon transfer – is stronger than ever. Our physical footprint is set to expand as well. In the coming school year, KCC will break ground on two new facilities: Klamath Basin Public Safety Training Center, will facilitate the training of students with aspirations of working in the emergency response industry. In collaboration with OSU our vision here is to integrate many of our training efforts in structure and wildland firefighting, emergency medicine and law enforcement, funneling students through this center and out into much-desired jobs, helping better protect the community. The Work Skills Technology Center, a 21,750 will offer students a hand-on approach to learning, allows KCC to offer more enticing and innovative programs. The new building will allow hundreds of students access to state-of-the-art facilities helping them acquire degrees, certificates, training and skills to be successful in a variety of job areas. In keeping with KCC’s desire to Inspire, Innovate and Transform, please continue to provide us with your valuable feedback and work hard to attain your goals while respecting those same efforts made by your classmates. Welcome to KCC… Education at the Speed of Life! Sincerely, Dr. Russel Potter Vice President of Student Affairs. 6 www.klamathcc.edu

ABOUT KLAMATH COMMUNITY COLLEGE KCC provides accessible, quality education and services to meet the diverse needs of students, business, and community. We are an academic community where students pursue their education and improve their lives. The College supports student success in workforce training, academic transfer, foundational skills development, and community education. Additionally, KCC provides student leadership, volunteerism, and student life opportunities. The Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities accredits KCC.

NON-DISCRIMINATION KCC affirms the rights of all individuals to equal education, activities, facilities, and employment without regard to age, sex, disability, national origin, race, color, marital status, religion, or sexual orientation in accordance with federal and state laws. KCC complies with Titles VI and VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972, and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, and any amendments. Inquiries or grievances regarding student matters are routed to the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee. Complaints regarding employee matters are routed to the Vice President of Human Resources and Institutional Effectiveness or designee. Either vice president can be reached at 7390 South 6th St., Klamath Falls, OR 97603, or at 541-882-3521. Persons can also contact the Office of Civil Rights, U.S. Department of Education, at 915 Second Ave. Room 3310, Seattle, WA 98174-1099.

KEY INFORMATION SOURCES Class Schedule The Class Schedule is published quarterly. It explains how to register for classes, pay tuition and fees, and find dates and deadlines. The registration form in the Class Schedule is used only for non-credit classes; students register for credit classes after meeting with their academic advisor.

College Catalog The College Catalog (“Catalog”) is published annually. It lists courses, programs of study, graduation requirements, and academic policies. Degree or certificate requirements are fixed by the Catalog for the academic year a student starts. It is the student’s responsibility to follow the correct Catalog to graduate. Students can ask Enrollment Services to use a different year’s Catalog on exception.

Student Handbook The Student Handbook (“Handbook”) informs students of their rights and responsibilities, the Student Code of Conduct, College policies and procedures, community services, and support resources.

Website Since the Handbook, Class Schedule, or Catalog may have changes after being printed, it is important for students to check periodically for any amendments online at www.klamathcc. edu. Other important information can be found on the College website. 541.882.3521

MESSAGE FROM STUDENT AFFAIRS Welcome to KCC and this step toward your educational and career goals. The Student Affairs area oversees most of the non-instructional services you will receive. Our job in Student Affairs is: • Making sure you have excellent support to succeed in your goals. • Not settling for less than your success. • Encouraging you to stretch toward the meaningful, quality life you deserve. Please let the Vice President of Student Affairs or staff know of anything we can do better and what we are already doing that makes a difference in your success and enjoyment of being a student. Your input will help us better serve you and other students.

POLICIES AND PROCEDURES Adding/Dropping Classes (see also Withdrawals) Students should add and drop classes online when possible. Otherwise, submit an add/ drop form to Enrollment Services by the published deadline. Adding a class after the first class meeting requires instructor approval, and students may not add after the first week of a term. Adding or dropping classes may affect financial aid or veteran benefits, so students should consult with staff working with those funds. After the drop deadline, students are financially and academically responsible for all classes they are enrolled in. Students can drop classes by the withdrawal deadline without a refund – see “Withdrawals” below. Pitfall: Stopping attending does not drop a student. Students must file the official forms in Enrollment Services. Though instructors must notify Enrollment Services to drop students who are no shows – instructor-initiated drops for students who have never attended or participated in a class – students are still responsible for making sure classes are officially dropped from their records.

Admissions While the College is generally open admissions, some programs of study are restricted to a limited number of applicants. The College has also established procedures for the admission of minors (persons under age 18 on the first day of classes for a given term). Contact Enrollment Services for information.

Animals Animals are not permitted on College premises, with the following exceptions that require advance approval: • Educational purposes – demonstrations are permitted with instructor, Campus Safety, and Facilities approval. • Service animals – requests are considered case-by-case. The College reserves the right to deny service animals that do not meet training, documentation, behavior, health, or safety requirements. Other animals may not be on College premises without prior approval from Campus Safety and Facilities due to health and safety concerns for people and the animal.

10 www.klamathcc.edu


Challenging a Course Challenging a course lets students show they have learned course outcomes without having to take the course. Students wishing to challenge a course must have satisfactorily completed 12 credits at KCC. • Talk to the instructor. • Get required signatures on the petition. • Turn in the petition to Enrollment Services in the first week of the term and pay the $10 per course, non-refundable fee plus any other fees associated with the examination. • Take the examination during the term in which the course is offered at a time agreed upon with the instructor. Students successfully passing the exam must add the class and pay the tuition and any applicable fees. Be aware of the following: • Financial aid cannot pay for challenged courses. • Students may not challenge a course a second time. • Challenged courses do not count for residency (the number of required credits completed at KCC) for graduation. • Challenged courses do not count for enrollment status. • The grade for a successful challenge is posted at the end of the term. • An unsuccessful challenge will result in no grade being posted. • Students cannot challenge a course for which a grade has already been earned. • Students cannot challenge a lower level course than one they have completed. • Some courses cannot be challenged for any reason.

College Premises Defined The College’s premises are any building, room, outdoor space, or vehicle that is owned, rented, leased, or used by the College. Students must follow College policies, procedures, and Code of Conduct when on College premises, including at off-campus events and activities that are sponsored or controlled by the College.

Harassment and Bullying The College expects a culture of respect free from harassment and bullying and similar behaviors, whether verbal or physical.

INFORMATION SYSTEMS AND TECHNOLOGY (POLICY 900.000) E-mail Official College communications rely on students using their reported e-mail addresses.

KCC Obligations Designate staff to coordinate and maintain electronic communications systems. 541.882.3521

11


Provide training in appropriate use of the system, providing copies of the College network policy and procedures. Cooperate with local, state, or federal officials in any investigation relating to misuse of the College’s system.

Student Information System Access Access is authorized for: • KCC employees. • Students when under the supervision of staff. • Other College-authorized agents.

Use Prohibitions, Guidelines, and Etiquette Users may use the College’s system for business related to instructional needs or to conduct research related to education consistent with the College’s mission and goals. All use must be consistent with the general use prohibitions, guidelines, and etiquette. Files and other information, including e-mail, generated or stored on College servers are not private and may be subject to monitoring. College administrators may review user files and communications. E-mail sent or received by a public official or employee, including student employees, in connection with public business may be a public record and subject to state archivist rules for retention and destruction. The following actions or their attempt are prohibited. • Using the College’s system for commercial or personal gain. • Using, reproducing or distributing material in violation of copyright law or applicable provisions of use or license agreements. • Degrading, disrupting, or vandalizing College equipment, software, materials or data, or those of any other user of the College’s system or any of the agencies or other networks connected to the College’s system. This prohibition includes attempts to gain unauthorized access to restricted information, networks, and other users’ accounts or files. • Disabling, defeating, or circumventing College security. • Sharing user identifications or passwords for any College computer or device. • Intentionally accessing or downloading any text file or picture or engaging in any communication of materials which: • Are perceived as libelous, obscene, indecent, vulgar, profane, or lewd. 12 www.klamathcc.edu


• Advertise any product or service not permitted to minors by law. • Constitute insulting or fighting words, the very expression of which injures or harasses others. • Present clear likelihood that, either because of content or manner of distribution, will cause disruption of the orderly operations of the College may incite commission of unlawful acts or violation of Board policies or regulations. • Gaining access to any service via the College’s system that has a cost involved or attempts to incur unauthorized costs. The user accessing such services will be responsible for costs. • Posting or publishing personal information such as photographs, age, home address, or phone numbers unless authorized by the person in question. • Downloading or installing software on College computers without receiving approval through appropriate channels. • Knowingly accessing or transmitting confidential records of the College, students, or vendors without authority. • Engaging in activity restricted by local, state, federal, or international laws, including non-compliance with FERPA. The College will cooperate with law enforcement investigations. Users will: • Adhere to standards for communicating online just as in classrooms. • Respect others’ time and cyberspace. Use real-time features such as chat and Internet relay only as approved by the instructor of a course. • Avoid downloading excessively large files. • Remain on the system long enough to get information then exit. • Take pride in communications. Check spelling and grammar. Avoid all capital letters (shouting) and emotional e-mails. • Respect the privacy of others. Do not read e-mail or files of others without their permission. • Cite all quotes, references and sources. Do not plagiarize. • Protect password confidentiality and do not share passwords with others. Never use another user’s account or password, or allow another person to use your account or password. • Report security problems to the instructor and/or Information Systems staff.

Violations and Consequences Students who violate prohibitions are subject to discipline up to and including revocation of system access and expulsion. Violations of law will be reported to law enforcement officials. Disciplinary action may be appealed in accordance with established College procedures (see “Student Conduct Process” below).

541.882.3521

MARIJUANA, ALCOHOL, AND CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES KCC is dedicated to a learning environment that is safe and free of detrimental influences of drug and alcohol abuse. To this end, the College maintains alcohol and drug abuse programs with annual assessment of those programs. Alcohol and marijuana may be consumed on College premises only with the prior written consent of the President, and alcohol consumption by any person under age 21 is always prohibited. Unlawful manufacturing, distribution, dispensing, possession, or use of alcohol, marijuana (including medical), or controlled substances on College premises is prohibited. Anyone under the influence or impaired by the use of alcohol, marijuana, or other controlled substance may be removed from the College premises. Violations will result in disciplinary action up to and including termination from College jobs, expulsion from classes, being trespassed from College premises, and referral to law enforcement. A criminal conviction for illegal use of drugs may bar a student from some careers, suspend employment with the College, result in seized property and assets, result in loss of driving privileges, require mandatory treatment, block receipt of financial aid, or have other adverse consequences. Information regarding alcohol or drug treatment is available through Enrollment Services. Crisis intervention is available through the Alcohol and Drug Helpline/Youthline at 800-9234357, National 24-Hour Alcohol Drug Treatment Help and Referral Network at 800-9963784, Narcotics Anonymous at 541-883-4976, Alcoholics Anonymous at 541-883-4970, and community care programs listed in the yellow pages of local phone directories.

PAYMENT Payment of tuition and fees is due at the time of registration. Late fees are assessed on unpaid balances.

PHOTOGRAPHY, VIDEO, AND DIGITAL IMAGING While KCC reserves the right to take candid photographs and video at public and Collegesponsored events on and off College premises, and to use resulting images and video for internal and external distribution without seeking consent from each individual depicted, if an individual advises the photographer that he or she is declining to be photographed, the photographer will comply with that request. KCC employees and agents will give notice of photo shoots in access-limited venues, including classrooms, laboratories, and offices. Photographers will comply with requests not to be photographed. In posed or formal photo sessions, photographers will obtain verbal permission from photographed individuals.

READMISSION Students who stop out of College are asked by Enrollment Services to set a return date for readmission. Students who were suspended from College and wish to return must file an appeal for readmission.

14 www.klamathcc.edu


REFUNDS For a refund, students must drop a course during the first week of the term. Classes of less than 10 weeks and some programs and courses have unique refund deadlines. Students with documented circumstances beyond their control may petition for an exception.

REFUND/REPAYMENT OF FINANCIAL AID See “Satisfactory Academic Progress” below.

REPEATING A COURSE Courses may be repeated once for a better grade. Before repeating, students should consult with their advisor and if applicable Financial Aid and Veteran Services to avoid problems. Note: Some grades do not affect the GPA and are therefore not recognized as repeats (e.g., W, NP, P, I or AU). If a course is repeated more than once, only the first repeat will replace the prior grade and be included in the GPA. However, any subsequent repeats will be recorded on the official transcript and all grades earned after the first repeat will affect the GPA. Pitfall: Financial aid will only pay for the first repeat, and repeats count toward the maximum credits that can be funded.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP) All credit students must make SAP toward their educational goals. Failure to do so will result in academic warning, probation, or suspension, and statuses that may block financial aid. See below for details.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT (POLICY 505.0500) Any employee found guilty of sexual harassment will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal. Any student found guilty of sexual harassment shall be subject to discipline in accordance with the Student Code of Conduct up to and including expulsion. Sexual harassment is physical or verbal conduct that may include, but is not limited to, unwelcome sexual advances or requests for sexual favors, such as in the following cases: Submission is either explicitly or implicitly a term or condition of employment or educational opportunity. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an individual’s work or educational performance or creating an intimidating, hostile, or offensive work or learning environment. Formal allegations of sexual harassment carry potentially serious consequences to the person charged. Such allegations should be made if warranted, but should be made with accuracy and truthfulness, through the most confidential and direct means possible.

Informal Resolution Students who feel they have been subjected to sexual harassment are encouraged first to pursue resolution by discussing the concerns with the Vice President of Human Resources and Institutional Effectiveness (VPHRIE). Every effort will be made to maintain confidentiality for both the complainant and the accused. 541.882.3521

15


Formal Resolution If informal resolution is unsuccessful, the VPHRIE will counsel the complainant to follow formal grievance procedures.

Non-Retaliation KCC will not tolerate retaliation of any kind against employees or students based upon sexual harassment allegations. Retaliatory behavior is a violation of College policy and is dealt with accordingly.

SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER (SSN) Oregon Administrative Rule (OAR) 589-004-0400 authorizes KCC to ask students for their SSN. The SSN is used for reporting, research, record keeping, and tax documents required by the Internal Revenue Service. Students may opt out of providing the SSN, but must first sign an agreement of understanding of the consequences of not providing the SSN. The SSN is used by the Oregon Community College Unified Reporting System (OCCURS) in support of research by Oregon community colleges, the Department of Community Colleges and Workforce Development (CCWD), and the Oregon Community College Association. OCCURS gathers information about students and programs for state and federal reporting. It helps colleges plan, research, and develop programs for student success in educational programs and the workplace. Either OCCURS or the College may provide student SSNs or match SSNs to records from the following: • State and private universities, colleges, and vocational schools, to learn how many students continue education and evaluate the use of community college courses for further education. • The Oregon Employment Department, which gathers information (including employment and earnings) to help state and local agencies plan education and training services for job placement. • The Oregon Department of Education, for reports to local, state, and federal 16 www.klamathcc.edu


government to learn about education, training, and job market trends for planning, research, and program improvement. • The Oregon Department of Revenue and collection agencies, only for purposes of processing debts, and only if the College extended credit to a student. • The American College Testing Service for students who took the COMPASS Placement test for educational research purposes. • The Internal Revenue Service for tax purposes. • National Student Clearinghouse and other contracted agencies providing services to the College.

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT AND STUDENT CONDUCT PROCESS Weapons Weapons are prohibited other than as authorized by law enforcement, Campus Safety, use for demonstration with prior Campus Safety approval, or as provided by law.

Withdrawing Students must officially withdraw in Enrollment Services by the published deadline, since simply quitting attending without officially dropping classes will result in failing grades or grade that represents what coursework was done. Withdrawals (W grades) show on official transcripts and are preferable to failing grades. See also “Adding/Dropping Classes” above. Students who withdraw should meet with Enrollment Services to be sure the withdrawal is recorded, to check for any bills, and to see if withdrawing requires repayment of any financial aid. If you have student loans, you must also meet with a Default Prevention Specialist in Financial Aid. Pitfall: Though instructors notify Enrollment Services to drop students who are no-shows during the first week of a term, it is still each student’s responsibility to make sure the drop is officially done to avoid being billed for a class and receiving a failing grade.

STUDENT CLUBS, ORGANIZATIONS, AND LEADERSHIP Leadership opportunities include student government, mentorships, service on committees and councils, volunteerism, providing student study support, joining or forming clubs, and sponsoring events. Students gain valuable leadership skills, develop friendships, and establish beneficial contacts with faculty, staff, and community members. Students have access to leadership workshops and other activities. Contact Student Life for more information.

Associated Students of Klamath Community College (ASKCC) ASKCC’s mission is to empower and support students through diverse activities and events, develop student leadership, support student clubs and co-curricular learning, and communicate student views and needs to the KCC administration. ASKCC is certified by the Oregon Council of Student Services Administrators.

Recognized Clubs and Organizations KCC has an ever-expanding number of clubs and organizations and welcomes new proposals. Students may organize and join associations to promote common interests and enhance co-curricular and extra-curricular learning subject to the following: The membership, by-laws, and actions of student organizations are governed by College policies, procedures, and regulations. Student organizations must submit a statement of purpose, membership criteria, and operational procedures for approval. Student organizations may choose their advisor, though some advisors may be assigned. Clubs recognized by the College must have an advisor who is a College employee. Employees who serve as advisors must protect the interests of the College. Student organizations, including those affiliated with an external organization, must be open to all students in compliance with the College’s non-discrimination policy “Equal Opportunity” 505.0000. Membership may be limited only based on non-discriminatory criteria, such as GPA or program of study. Students and student organizations may examine questions of interest and express opinions publicly and privately. They may support causes by orderly means that do not disrupt College operations. It must be made clear that in their public expressions, students or student clubs speak for themselves and not as representatives of the College, the College community, or the entire student body, except that the ASKCC does serve as the voice of the student body.

Student Participation in Governance Governance is the participatory system by which the College recommends change. Student input on institutional policy, procedures, and programs is valued. Students may participate in governance through ASKCC and College councils and committees.

STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT The Code of Conduct (“Code”) maintains the integrity of the College mission and promotes a safe learning environment. Unwillingness or inability of a student to abide by the Code may result in discipline. Students Shall: • Be responsible College citizens, respecting the dignity, rights and freedoms of others, individual differences, and diversity. • Practice academic honesty. Students shall not cheat, plagiarize, or steal examinations or course material. • Not obstruct or disrupt teaching or authorized College activities and functions on College premises or at College-sponsored events, or in the community. • Not make unauthorized entry to or use of College facilities or block access to or egress from such areas. • Not participate in physical or verbal abuse or behave in a manner that threatens or endangers the health or safety of any person on College premises or at College-sponsored functions. Students shall not participate in sexual or other harassment of any member of the College community, or display conduct that is disorderly, lewd, or obscene. 18 www.klamathcc.edu


• Respect the property of others. Students shall not steal or damage College property or that of a member of the College community or a visitor to the College. • Use College supplies, equipment, and funds only as authorized by College employees. • Not use, possess, or distribute alcoholic beverages, illegal drugs, firearms, explosives, dangerous chemicals, substances, instruments, or other weapons or items that can be used to inflict bodily harm or material damage on College premises or at Collegesponsored functions. Exception: College prior written approval may be requested for in-class display or demonstration; see “Marijuana, Alcohol, and Controlled Substances” above. • Comply with directions of College officials acting in the performance of their duties, including requests to provide identification. Students shall not violate College policies or regulations, nor any local, state, or federal laws or regulations. • Refrain from use of tobacco and related products on College premises or at Collegesponsored events other than as permitted in designated areas. (See “Smoking and Tobacco” above.) • Not have cell phones, pagers, or other electronic devices on audible response while in classrooms, the Learning Resources Center, or other learning environments. • Not knowingly give false information to the College, or forge, alter, or misuse College documents, records, or identification.

STUDENT CONDUCT PROCESS (POLICY 750.0130) The Dean of Enrollment Services serves as the Conduct Advisor. The Conduct Advisor manages the conduct process in keeping with College policy. The Dean of Enrollment Services may also serve as the Hearing Officer if not directly involved in the incident; otherwise a different managerial-level employee is assigned the role. For alleged serious violations, or if a student does not accept a disciplinary sanction, the matter may be escalated to the VPSA. The Dean serves as the College-wide clearinghouse for Title IX, and steers investigatory and hearing processes as appropriate, recognizing that a given violation may trigger multiple avenues of response when not only College policies are violated, but federal regulations may have been violated as well.

Academic Integrity Violations Students are subject to disciplinary action if they intentionally or unintentionally: • Represent someone else’s work or ideas, including those copied from online searches, as their own (plagiarism). Note that instructors may submit a selection of papers each term for review of potential student plagiarism. • Use inappropriate or prohibited aids for an examinations or graded assignments including but not limited to others’ answers, notes, phone or other electronic devices, and test files (cheating). • Students shall not hand in work done for a different class without written instructor permission from both classes. • The Conduct Adviser in consultation with instructor and Vice President of Academic Affairs (VPAA) will decide first academic integrity complaints. The penalty for a first offense may include failure of the assignment, or the Conduct Adviser and VPAA may 541.882.3521

19


ask the Hearing Officer to conduct a hearing. Second violations of academic integrity go to the Conduct Adviser for action. A second offense may result in a conduct hearing with possible outcomes of course failure, academic dismissal or suspension, and other sanctions. Students may challenge an instructor’s accusation of a violation by using a student complaint form available online or in Enrollment Services.

Alleged Conduct Violations Members of the College community must report misconduct. Alleged infractions of the Code, College policy, law or regulation, or of a standard in the Handbook are reported to the Conduct Adviser who determines if there is sufficient evidence of a violation to proceed. All submitted reports will be provided to the respondent before any hearing. The Conduct Adviser may dispose of issues without a hearing if acceptable to all parties.

Appeals Students may appeal decisions of the Hearing Officer to the VPSA. If the VPSA served as the Hearing Officer or has a conflict, another vice president may hear the appeal. The Hearing Officer provides appeal instructions to students at the time sanctions are imposed. Except when new evidence arises, appeals are limited to review of the record of the hearing to determine: • If the hearing was conducted fairly in light of the allegations and evidence, conformity with procedures, and adequate time for the respondent to prepare and present. • If the decision reached was based on substantial evidence, and that it was more likely than not that the violation occurred. • If the sanctions imposed were appropriate to the violation. • If any new evidence is sufficient to alter a decision or require further review. • If restitution and learning opportunities were considered as alternatives for non-severe violations that did not involve violence, property damage, or violation of laws.

Conduct Records Other than expulsion, sanctions are not be part of the student’s academic record but are part of confidential records in the VPSA office. These files are protected under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, and will be maintained for 7 years after the date of the incident. After that, disciplinary notes may be expunged except for major infractions that caused significant risk or actual injury to the safety or well-being of any members of the College community, including the student.

Due Process The Conduct Advisor ensures that due process is met, providing the accused student with: • Reasonable notice of charges and hearing time and date. • Adequate opportunity to read any written documentation describing charges. • Opportunity to be heard and to present evidence and other information. • Assumption of non-guilt until evidence shows otherwise. • Due process in conformity with policy and in proportion to the level of potential sanctions. 20 www.klamathcc.edu


Exceptional Circumstances The College reserves the right, when safety and well-being are at stake, for the VPSA, in consultation with the President, to intervene and address a matter administratively through sanctions or alternative remedies. This option may be invoked to reduce immediate threat to life or property or when a situation warrants a non-disciplinary response.

Hearings Conduct hearings are conducted in closed meetings. In hearings involving multiple respondents, the Hearing Officer may permit separate hearings. Witnesses may be heard as deemed appropriate by the Hearing Officer, who may accept as evidence pertinent records, exhibits, and written statements. Conduct hearings (excluding deliberations) shall be audio recorded. Detailed notes are kept. Respondents have the right to be helped by an advocate at the student’s expense, if any. Advocates are not permitted to participate in a hearing, but may attend to advise the student. The name of any advocate must be reported to the Conduct Officer and Hearing Officer at least 2 workdays before the hearing. The Hearing Officer may invite another College employee to witness the hearing or keep records. If a student fails to appear for the hearing, the Hearing Officer will reach a decision based on evidence at hand.

Roles Conduct Adviser– Ensures due process and compliance with College policy. The Conduct Adviser is by default the Dean of Enrollment Services. The Dean may also serve as Hearing Officer when there is no conflict in doing so. Dean of Enrollment Services – Is by position the Conduct Adviser and may also serve as Hearing Officer if doing so entails no conflict. Determines the appropriate process to follow for compliance with College policy on violations of College regulations and the Student Code of Conduct as well as violations of Title IX and other federal regulations. Disciplinary Subcommittee – appointed by the Dean of Enrollment Services. Overseen by the Hearing Officer, the Subcommittee reviews allegations, decides if a violation occurred, and recommends sanctions. Hearing Officer – Conducts hearings, oversees record keeping, directs any Disciplinary Subcommittee, decides if a violation occurred, and decides sanctions. The Conduct Adviser may serve as the Hearing Officer when there is no conflict. Respondent – The student accused of a Code or other violation. VPSA – Vice President of Student Affairs. Appeals go to the VPSA, whose decisions are final except for expulsions – sanctions which must be approved by the President, and which may be appealed to the President.

Sanctions Sanctions decided by the Hearing Officer are communicated to the respondent via the Conduct Adviser, and may be: • Warning. • Loss of privileges. • Fines. 541.882.3521

21


• Restitution. • Discretionary educational sanctions. • Behavioral assessments. • Trespass from designated locations. • Probation. • Suspension (temporary removal from the College). • Expulsion (permanent removal from the College, which requires President’s approval).

Sexual Harassment Sexual harassment is a form of sex discrimination that is illegal under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 for employees and under Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 for students. Student complaints are addressed to the Dean of Enrollment Services, who determines the applicable process for response and which College officials to include.

Standard of Evidence Decisions are based on a “preponderance of evidence” – whether it is more likely than not that a violation occurred. Technical rules of evidence applicable to civil and criminal cases do not apply to conduct hearings, decisions, or appeals.

Temporary Exclusion or Dismissal from Class Dismissal or temporary exclusion from a class, laboratory, teaching area, operational area, activity, or event may be necessary for safety and the preservation of the learning environment. Behaviors resulting in dismissal or exclusion from class include, but are not limited to: • Danger to the safety of other students, College employees, or property. • Threat to the safety of the student being dismissed (e.g., refusal to follow safety procedures). • Disruption of the educational process and the orderly conduct of the class, laboratory, teaching area, activity, or event. • Violation of College regulations. • Violation of the law. When an employee responsible for an area determines that temporary exclusion or dismissal from class is necessary, he or she has the authority to direct a student to leave. Students who believe they have been dismissed or excluded inappropriately have the right to file a complaint (see below).

Timelines 1. Allegation reported. 2. Within 5 workdays, the Conduct Adviser informs the respondent of the allegation. 3. The Conduct Adviser may pursue an informal resolution or call a formal hearing, serving as Hearing Officer if appropriate. 4. If the matter is resolved informally, no further action is needed except that the process and outcome are documented. 22 www.klamathcc.edu


5. If pursued formally, a hearing is called within 10 workdays of the allegation, except that if a Disciplinary Subcommittee is needed, it will hold the hearing within 15 workdays of the allegation. 6. Within 5 workdays of the hearing, the Conduct Adviser will inform the respondent of the decision. 7. Within 5 workdays of being informed of the decision, the respondent must meet with the Conduct Adviser to go over any sanctions. 8. Students can appeal sanctions to the VPSA within 10 workdays of notification of the decision. 9. A student may appeal expulsion to the President within 10 workdays of a VPSA denial. Other sanctions have no appeal after the VPSA.

Title IX Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972 protects people from discrimination based on sex in education programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Examples of the types of discrimination that are covered under Title IX include sexual harassment, the failure to provide equal opportunity in athletics, and discrimination based on pregnancy. Title IX requires: • Through the Dean of Enrollment Services, the College maintains the following points of compliance: • Grievance procedures to resolve employee and student complaints. • Notification to all students and employees that the Dean of Enrollment Services is the coordinator for all Title IX complaints. • Dissemination of a notice of non-discrimination on the basis of sex included in Class Schedule, Catalog, admissions forms, and the College’s website, as well as other electronic notifications. • Affirmation that the College’s non-discrimination policy for prohibited sex discrimination covers sexual harassment, including sexual violence, with examples of the type of conduct that it covers in appropriate publications. • To enforce Title IX, the U.S. Department of Education maintains an Office for Civil Rights, with headquarters in Washington, DC and 12 offices across the United States.

VIOLATIONS OF LAW AND CONDUCT College proceedings may be instituted against a student without regard to any pending criminal charges or civil litigation arising from the same violation. College proceedings may be carried out prior to, simultaneously with, or following civil or criminal proceedings. The College itself reserves the right to file civil or criminal charges against students where appropriate. The College recognizes that conduct sanctions, based on different evidentiary standards than a legal case, might influence a criminal or civil matter. In such cases, the VPSA, in consultation with the President, will determine whether the College process should proceed concurrently with any external process. The College may elect to postpone a hearing pending the outcome of a court case, but is not obligated to do so. A student who is disciplined, suspended or expelled by a Hearing Officer for behavior that was also alleged to 541.882.3521

23


be illegal and is later found not guilty of charges by a criminal or civil court may appeal the College ruling to the VPSA. When a student is charged by federal, state, or local authorities with a violation of law, the College will not request nor agree to special consideration of the accused due to student status. If the alleged offense also involved a College conduct proceeding, the College may advise authorities of the existence and details of the College process.

STUDENT RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES Appeals and Complaints Appeal, complaint, and grievance forms are available online and at Reception in Building 3.

Appeals Students may appeal decisions on financial aid, suspension, late drops, late withdrawals, refunds, enrolling in more than 18 credits in a term, pursuing a second degree, waiving transcripts, and similar matters. Appeals are considered by the Appeals Committee and are processed at regular intervals. Students are notified of decisions within 5 workdays. Questions about the appeal process are directed to Enrollment Services.

Grade Appeals Students should first discuss the matter with the instructor. The instructional Dean and the Dean of Enrollment Services may mediate with the student and instructor. If mediation fails, students may submit an appeal form to the Vice President of Academic Affairs (VPAA). Grade appeals will be processed at regular intervals and students are notified of decisions within 5 workdays. Questions about grade appeals are directed to the VPAA.

Conduct Sanction Appeals See “Student Conduct Process” above.

Student Complaint Process (Informal) Students are asked first to resolve complaints at the lowest, most direct level, as this is good practice for work and life. The steps in the informal process are: • Students discuss the matter with the employee that he or she believes has made the violation. • If not resolved, students may speak with the Dean (for faculty) or supervisor (for staff) of the employee. • If still unsatisfied, students may meet with the Dean of Enrollment Services, who will review steps taken and attempt to resolve the matter.

Student Complaint Process (Formal) If the informal process was unsuccessful, students may make a formal complaint to the vice president overseeing the employee who is being complained about. That vice president in turn works with the Vice President of Human Resources and Institutional Effectiveness as appropriate. Students submitting formal complaints will receive a written response within 10 business days.

24 www.klamathcc.edu


Student Grievance for Sexual/Other Harassment and Civil Rights Violations Students who allege discrimination on the basis of protected class membership or believe that they have been harassed should report the situation immediately to the Vice President of Human Resources and Institutional Effectiveness: • Call 541-880-2203 to report. • Obtain a Grievance for Student Sexual/Other Harassment and Civil Rights Violations form and turn it in to Human Resources. • Make an appointment with Human Resources at Reception in Building 3. • The student must initiate grievances in writing within 5 business days of the alleged violation.

FINANCIAL AID Applying Financial aid is available for eligible students seeking two-year degrees or one-year certificates who have a high school diploma or GED. Submit a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) each year as early as January. Students should apply at least three months before the start of the quarter they will attend. After submitting the FAFSA, students need to verify that their file is complete with the Financial Aid Office. File the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. Filing online will result in faster aid decisions, though paper FAFSAs are available from 800-433-3243. Criteria to be eligible for aid: Have a High School Diploma or GED. Be a U.S. citizen or eligible non-citizen. Be registered with the U.S. Selective Service (males between 18 and 25). Not be in default or owe a refund to any Title IV financial aid program. Use the money you receive only for costs of attending college. Enroll in a two-year degree or one-year certificate program. Maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) toward your degree or certificate.

Checking Financial Aid Status Log in to your student account online using your KCC user name and password. Newly registered students must create a new account. Click Student Record, then the financial aid button, and select the award year. Students will see their current status including available awards, transactions, and any documents required before financial aid can be awarded or disbursed. 30 www.klamathcc.edu


Types of Aid Federal Work-Study (FWS) funds provide employment, usually on campus. Part-time employment can reduce loan debt. Check that you are interested in FWS on the FAFSA. Grants are “gift aid” since they normally do not have to be repaid. Pell and Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant are federal grants. Oregon Opportunity Grant is a state grant. By filing the FAFSA, you apply for all three of these need-based grants. Loans are money that has to be repaid. Borrow only as much as absolutely needed. Scholarships are a form of “gift aid” that normally do not have to be repaid. Apply for all scholarships you are eligible for.

Federal Loans Loans must be repaid, so borrow conservatively. Loans require counseling and budget planning as well as other details required by the loan program. There are several loan programs.

Federal Subsidized Stafford Loan A fixed interest rate loan based on financial need. The federal government pays interest while the student is in school taking enough credits or during periods of authorized deferment. Interest rates and maximum amounts are set by the Department of Education.

Direct Loan - Federal Unsubsidized Stafford Loan This loan is not based on financial need. Interest accrues when the loan is disbursed. The federal government does not pay the interest on this loan. Students may pay the interest while in school, or the interest can be capitalized (added to the principal balance). Students work with the loan servicer to set up interest payments. Interest rates and maximum amounts are determined by federal regulations.

Federal PLUS Loan PLUS loans are taken out by parents or guardians of dependent students to assist with educational. Financial need is not required. This loan is based on the borrower’s credit history established through a credit check or other documents. The loan may not exceed the annual cost of education at KCC, less any financial aid awarded to the student. The parent or guardian is responsible for repayment including interest. These loans may require repayment to start before graduation, and interest begins to accrue when the loan is disbursed. Federal Work-Study (FWS) FWS is need-based “self-help” via part-time employment. FWS provides part-time employment on- and off-campus. Students may work up to 20 hours per week during the academic year to earn the awarded amount. 541.882.3521

Oregon Opportunity Grant (OOG) The OOG helps students with financial need to attend Oregon colleges and universities. The grant is available for up to the equivalent of 12 quarters or 8 semesters of full-time enrollment. Filing the FAFSA serves to apply for the OOG. Award amounts are based on the FAFSA information. OOG criteria: Be a citizen or eligible non-citizen of the U.S. Be a resident of Oregon. Be an undergraduate with no prior bachelor’s degree. Be enrolled at least half-time in an eligible degree-granting program at a participating Oregon college or university. Maintain satisfactory academic progress. Have no defaults on federal student loans or owe refunds of federal student grants. Meet federal selective service registration and illegal drug conviction requirements. Not be incarcerated. Not be enrolled in a program leading to a degree in theology, divinity or religious education.

Scholarships Scholarships are “gift aid” because there is normally no requirement to repay them. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress and fulfill all requirements of the scholarship to maintain eligibility. The following are available annually. Amounts and eligibility requirements are published at the time of application, usually September. Erin Andrews Endowment Scholarship. KCC General Scholarship. Masami Foods Endowment Scholarship. Ron & Myrtle Mason Endowment Scholarship. Soroptimist International of Klamath Falls Endowment Scholarship. Susan Channell Endowment Scholarship. There are hundreds of other scholarships students should explore.

SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP) All credit students – not just financial aid recipients – must meet SAP standards or be subject to academic warning, probation, or suspension. Additionally, Federal Regulation 668.34 requires financial aid recipients to maintain SAP for eligibility to receive federal aid.

SAP Definition SAP requires a minimum term GPA of 2.00 and 66.67% or higher completion rate of passing classes. The completion rate is based on the number of credits the student was enrolled in on the published add/drop deadline for a quarter. A grade of W, I, or F does not count as completion of a class. KCC applies SAP standards each quarter after grades are posted. Here are the requirements:

32 www.klamathcc.edu


If a student is enrolled in: The student must complete with a 2.00 or higher GPA:

12 or more credits 11 credits 10 credits 9 credits 8 credits 7 credits 6 credits 5 credits 4 credits 3 credits 2 credits 1 credit

8 or more credits 8 or more credits 7 or more credits 6 or more credits 6 or more credits 5 or more credits 4 or more credits 4 or more credits 3 or more credits 2 or more credits 2 credits 1 credit

Academic/Financial Aid Warning This status is assigned in the first term a student fails to make SAP. The student remains eligible to enroll in classes and receive financial aid, but must meet SAP standards the next term to continue financial aid eligibility. No appeal is necessary.

Financial Aid Disqualification This status is assigned to a student who failed to make SAP more than one term. The student is not eligible to receive financial aid unless an appeal is approved. If the appeal is granted, the status changes to Financial Aid Probation.

Academic and Financial Aid Appeal Students who have not met SAP standards may appeal for reconsideration of eligibility for federal financial aid and/or eligibility to continue to enroll in classes. The appeal must explain why the student failed to meet SAP, the resolution of the issue, and the student’s plan for success.

Academic and Financial Aid Probation This status is assigned when a student failed to meet SAP for a second term but had eligibility for financial aid reinstated through an appeal. KCC may restrict enrollment to help a student succeed. Students on probation may receive aid and must meet SAP standards for the next term to continue to be eligible to enroll in classes and receive federal aid.

Academic Suspension This status is assigned to a student who fails to meet SAP for a third term. The student is not eligible to enroll in classes unless an appeal is granted. The student is not eligible to receive federal financial aid. Degree- and certificate-seeking students will be placed on suspension after completing 36 credits if their cumulative GPA is below 1.75.

Restrictions on Course Eligibility for Federal Aid Federal financial aid eligibility is limited to 150% of a program’s credit length (135 credits for a 90-credit two-year degree and 68 credits for a 45-credit one-year certificate). Credits from other colleges that are accepted at KCC and credits attempted using non-financial aid resources count toward the maximum credits. When it is seen that a student cannot graduate within the credit limit, the student becomes ineligible for federal financial aid. Enrollment status for financial aid is based on enrollment at 5:00 pm on the last day to add 541.882.3521

or drop classes. For a course to count for financial aid funding, it must count toward the two-year degree or one-year certificate the student is pursuing. Elective credits above what is required to receive the degree or certificate will not be included for financial aid funding, but do count toward maximum credits allowed. Developmental courses (courses under 100-level) are eligible for federal financial aid up to 45 attempted credits. No additional developmental courses will be funded after 45 credits have been attempted. Only developmental courses and courses that apply to a degree or certificate are eligible for federal financial aid. Courses that are not eligible for financial aid include Adult Basic Education, courses taken during the Advanced Diploma Program, Extended Studies, GED, High School Completion, high school programs such as dual credit and tech prep, challengeby-examination, one-credit workshops, and special topic courses that exceed degree or certificate requirements. Repeated courses may count toward a student’s enrollment for financial aid: a previously completed course may be repeated once to receive a higher grade or complete the course. Both attempts will be counted toward the maximum credit limits. Programs less than 45 credits or one academic year (e.g., Career Pathways) are not eligible for federal financial aid. Failure to Meet Eligibility Standards Will Result in the Following: Financial Aid Status

SAP Criteria for Appeals The Department of Education stipulates conditions for an appeal to reinstate financial aid, such as death of a relative, injury or illness of the student, or other special circumstances. Failure to attend classes or not doing coursework is not an appropriate basis for appeal. Multiple appeals for the same reason are generally not allowed. The appeal must: • Explain what happened. 34 www.klamathcc.edu


• Describe steps taken to resolve the issue that prevented meeting SAP standards. Give a plan for success for the next term and future terms. Include changes that have taken place to ensure future success. • Provide copies of supporting documentation.

SAP Appeal Results Students will be notified in writing of the decision of the Appeal Committee. If the appeal is approved, the notification will include conditions of continued financial aid or enrollment. Failure to meet required conditions may result in administrative drops from classes or suspending financial aid until conditions have been met. If the appeal is denied, the notification will state actions to regain eligibility for financial aid or enrollment. If a student feels that the appeal included all required elements and the Appeals Committee did not reach an appropriate decision, the student can request VPSA review.

Refund/Repayment (Policies 720.0110 and 720.0140) If a student withdraws from all classes or earns a 0.00 GPA for the term, the Financial Aid Office will determine if the student must repay any financial aid. The Business Office will notify the student if repayment is required. Because the student failed to meet SAP, the student will be placed in disqualified status for additional financial aid, but may appeal. However, the appeal will not be heard until any repayment of financial aid has been made in full. The student will be billed for any portion of unearned aid that the College must return to the Department of Education. This charge will result in a financial and transcript Hold on the student’s records. If the student received a Stafford Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loan, the student is responsible for paying any unearned amount of the loan per the terms of the loan. Students have up to 45 calendar days to make acceptable financial arrangements for repaying an over-award or the account will be sent to collections. Students must meet all financial obligations to the College for continued enrollment.

FRESH START Contact Enrollment Services if you have been out of school for a period of time after academic failure to see if you qualify for a fresh start academically.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS College jargon can be confusing. Here are a few definitions. Adding, registering, and enrolling: These refer to officially signing up for a class. Appeals and petitions: These are special requests for an exception to a rule or decision. Attendance: Showing up for class on time, prepared, and participating. This is critical for your success. Always communicate with the instructor if you run into problems. Caution: non-attendance can lead not only to failing grades, but also to having to repay financial aid. Credits and credit hours: You can consider them to be the same thing. The number of credits 541.882.3521

35


you earn for a class is on your class schedule and your transcript. Deadlines: When something says “deadline” it means deadline. Always check the College academic calendar and meet deadlines given by your instructors. Disbursement: Giving you financial aid funds. Dropping or withdrawing: Officially un-enrolling from one or more classes. Withdrawing may refer to a student dropping all classes for a term. Quarters and terms: The College runs on a quarter system – Fall, Winter, and Spring, and Summer. Terms and quarters usually mean the same thing. Refund and repayment: If you did not maintain eligibility for financial aid you got, the College may have to refund money back to the U.S. Department of Education. Then, the College requires you to repay the College. Refunds: This can mean two things. If you drop a course before the 100% refund deadline, you get a refund of what you have paid for the course. Or, if you have financial aid left over after it is used to pay tuition, fees, and books, that money will be disbursed (given) to you, and that is sometimes called a refund. Transcripts: Most often this means your academic record – the classes you took and the grades you got. However, there are also different transcripts for financial aid – for example, the Internal Revenue Service tax transcript.

GRADUATION Graduation is the completion of degree or certificate requirements confirmed by the Registrar. To help students graduate on time, students must consult with advisors each quarter.

AWARD OF COMPLETION Community Education and Workforce Education courses carry no credit, but Awards of Completion are available on request and by instructor recommendation. Call 541-880-2253 for information.

CHANGE OF NAME, ADDRESS, E-MAIL ADDRESS, PHONE NUMBER Most changes may be made online, in person, or by mail, though name changes must be made in person at Enrollment Services with proper documentation. Also notify the Financial Aid Office and Veteran Services if applicable.

DEGREE AUDIT Go to the KCC home page. Log in. Select “Degree Audit, Student Audit Sheet.” The degree audit provides information on which classes are needed to complete a degree or certificate. Use the degree audit, Class Schedule, Catalog, and published degree requirements to plan degree or certificate completion.

36 www.klamathcc.edu


GRADUATION APPLICATIONS Students should apply for graduation two terms before completion to confirm all requirements are met. File a Petition to Graduate at Enrollment Services. After filing, report any changes to Enrollment Services. KCC reserves the right to award an earned certificate or degree without a Petition to Graduate.

RESIDENCY REQUIREMENTS FOR A DEGREE OR CERTIFICATE For all associate degrees, 24 credits toward degree completion must be earned at KCC. For all one-year or less-than-one-year certificates, 12 credits towards the certificate must be earned at KCC.

LEARNING RESOURCES CENTER (LRC) The Learning Resources Center supports learning and the College mission through information resources and services, and a Library that provides access to print, electronic, and media resources that support the curriculum and research interests. The Library provides study space, audio/video access, testing facilities, and a computer lab. The Library collection is constantly being developed to support academic needs. It contains material in liberal arts, sciences, health occupations, and technical programs. The Library includes online resources that are accessible anytime, and include academic research databases that contain thousands of journals, reports, and streaming media. Access to interlibrary loan services is available through the KCC website. KCC is a part of Eastern Oregon’s SAGE Library consortium. Students have access to books from Eastern Oregon University, Treasure Valley Community College, Blue Mountain Community College, Columbia Gorge Community College, and over 50 libraries in eastern Oregon. Access to Oregon Institute of Technology’s print collection is available free on-site or students may apply for borrowing privileges for a $20 annual fee. The Library provides access to computers with Internet access, Microsoft Office applications, and other programs that support the curriculum. The library may have course textbooks on “reserve” for use in the Library throughout a quarter. Library staff are available to help students with research and obtaining materials. Access to online reference assistance is available anytime through the Oregon Library Network at www.oregonlibraries.net.

LOST AND FOUND Turn in lost and found items to the Cashier in Building 3 in Klamath Falls. In Lakeview, turn in items to the site coordinator.

PARKING Parking is free. Students must abide by all posted signs, pavement markings, and speed limits. Parking is not permitted on non-paved areas. There is no parking in places where blocking an area would impede regular business, such as receiving deliveries. Improperly parked vehicles may be towed or ticketed.

541.882.3521

37


OREGON INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (OIT) PARKING OIT parking is available to KCC students in designated areas. Students parking at OIT may be required to purchase an OIT parking permit. OIT parking permits and brochures are available at the Cashier in KCC’s Building 3.

New Student Orientation (NSO) NSO is mandatory for credit students. It is scheduled before each term. It includes an overview of College resources and support services. NSO gives an opportunity to connect with faculty, staff, and other students. Placement examinations are taken either at or before NSO to help students decide which courses to start with. Students meet with an advisor to select classes and register. All new students enrolling in a degree, certificate, or diploma program, or who are accumulating credits for a transfer degree, should attend NSO before their first term. NSO dates and times are listed in the Handbook and are available online. Special orientations are provided to online students to teach how to use systems for online courses.

OCCUPATIONAL PREPARATORY INSTRUCTION The technical nature of work in today’s business and industry calls for high-level skills. KCC offers certificate and degree programs for entry into occupations that require greater than high school skills, yet do not require a bachelor’s degree. Students gain basic skills before progressing far in occupational preparatory instruction. Contact Enrollment Services or the advisor in the program of interest.

ONLINE SERVICES Continuing students may access student records and services online. These services include registration, degree audit, degree plan, and financial aid award/disbursal information. Students can access the Catalog and Class Schedule online, as well as admission applications, financial aid forms, transcript request forms, current required books for credit courses, appeal/grievance/complaint forms, and more.

REGISTRATION Web registration is only available to students who have previously enrolled in a class at KCC. Before registering online, students are required to meet with an advisor. KCC must have the student’s correct full name, Social Security Number, and date of birth in the computer system. Students with holds cannot register online until the hold is cleared. See Enrollment Services in Building 3. New students register in person in Enrollment Services after New Student Orientation or as arranged. If a student does not have Internet access, computers are available in the Learning Resources Center in Building 4, the lobby of Building 3, and study areas in Building 6.

SURVEYS The College values information and input from students. One way to gather information is 38 www.klamathcc.edu


surveys, which are sometimes conducted during class. At other times, student input may be solicited through forums, focus groups, online surveys, and other means.

TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT Enrollment Services can assist students with log in, password, or other problems, either through direct help or referral.

TRANSCRIPTS Academic transcripts show courses, grades, degrees or certificates granted, and other information. Starting in 2015, the College began noting certain co-curricular achievements on transcripts as well. Unofficial transcripts are available online. Official transcripts may not be ordered by phone. To order an official transcript by mail, send a signed letter with student’s name at time of attendance, and the address to send the transcript. Mail requests to: Enrollment Services Klamath Community College 7390 South 6th Street Klamath Falls, OR 97603

TRANSFERRING Credit Acceptance from Other Schools at KCC Credits are accepted from regionally accredited colleges and universities. An official transcript must be sent to Enrollment Services. Once a transcript is received, it cannot be re-released to a non-contracted third party, including other institutions. Credits older than seven years might not be accepted for degree requirements. When credit is denied, the student may request an exception. If there is a question on course content, the course will be reviewed by the Dean or faculty in that subject area. A grade of “D” is not accepted if the degree or certificate requires a “C” or better. Only credits that transfer to other Oregon colleges and universities are accepted for the AA-OT degree. Credit for military training is granted following guidelines of the American Council on Education (ACE) in the “Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services.” KCC accepts credits from the military DANTES and USAFI programs. Military credits are listed on a military transcript sent to KCC. Army: Army/ACE Registry System (AARTS). Marines: Individual Training Standards System, Maintenance Training Management and Evaluation Program (ITSS MATMEP). Navy: Navy Occupational/Training and Awards History. Credit will be granted for acceptable scores for College Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the Advanced Placement (AP) tests. KCC does not participate in a Credit for Prior Learning program, where credit is granted for life experiences or job skills. A student may seek substitutions in AAS degrees or 541.882.3521

39


one-year certificate programs on the basis of prior experience or may challenge courses by examination. Students who received a Bachelor’s degree are considered to have completed general education requirements for an Associate’s degree. Transfer credit does not count for residency for graduation purposes. Transfer credit must be applicable for a student’s educational goals and KCC’s programs.

Credit Sent from KCC to another School Students planning to transfer to another college or university should contact the destination institution to be certain of transfer requirements and deadlines. Not all KCC courses will necessarily be accepted at the transfer destination. The other institution decides which credits will be accepted and how they will be used. KCC encourages students to complete their KCC certificate or degree before transferring, since this will add value for the student. Some professional-technical courses may be transferable. Consult with your advisor.

Reverse Transfer Students who go to another college or university before completing their degree or certificate should send transcripts from the other institution back to KCC. KCC may be able to award degrees and certificates based on reverse transfer work.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS The College has partnerships and agreements with Oregon Institute of Technology, Oregon State University, and Southern Oregon University that facilitate transferring and in some cases allow concurrent enrollment.

Students Transferring to KCC Students transferring to KCC may request the placement test be waived if the student completed both college-level writing and mathematics at another institution.

TRiO Student Support Services TRiO is a free program to assist low-income, first-generation, disabled, and at-risk students. This limited entry program helps students from entry through graduation with emphasis on success. TRiO helps students transfer to other colleges as well as offering tutoring, career exploration, academic advising, and related services. TRiO is in Building 4. Call 541-8802289 or apply online.

Tutoring Services Tutoring is available in the Learning Resources Center during hours posted each term. Dropin tutoring is available for math, writing and other subjects. Students may request a tutor matched to the student’s needs. KCC has online tutoring through the Western eTutoring Consortium, with a variety of subjects and an online writing lab. For more information, call 541-880-2206. Additionally, student study support is offered through peers in the Student Life Center.

VETERAN SERVICES 40 www.klamathcc.edu


Veteran Services provides information on education benefits for veterans and eligible dependents and certifies enrollment with the Veterans Administration (VA). To apply for veterans benefits go to www.gibill.va.gov. Recipients of VA benefits must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress toward their educational goals. Veterans must follow VA regulations for notification of any change in academic program/ major, course registration, withdrawal, and transfer credits from other institutions. Failure to notify the VA may result in a loss of benefits. For information on benefits or payment problems, call the Portland regional office at 800-827-1000 or contact the KCC Veteran Services at 541-880-2214.

Eligibility Requirements: Students may establish eligibility for full-time veteran benefits by taking 12 or more credits, three-quarter time benefits with 9 to 11 credits, or half-time benefits with 6 to 8 credits. If the student attends less than 6 credits, only tuition benefits are available. Students taking GED or high school equivalency courses must attend class 18 or more hours per week to be full-time. Students must provide documents verifying prior education and military service. The VA Educational Office in Muskogee, Oklahoma processes eligibility for benefits and monthly payments.

Transfer of Military Credits Check with Veteran Services regarding transfer of military credits. After Certification, Students Must: Maintain SAP (see “Satisfactory Academic Progress� above). Enroll only in courses that are part of the certified program. Classes outside the certified program will make the student liable for overpayments and billing from the VA. Complete at least the minimum credits for which the student was certified. Overpayments will occur if students enroll in, but do not complete, credits for which they were certified. Inform the VA and Veteran Services immediately of changes in schedule, address, or dependents, as it takes up to six weeks to process changes. Chapter 30 recipients must certify attendance monthly on the VA Electronic System. Students receiving veteran benefits who are enrolled at least three-quarter time (9 to 11 credits) or more may be eligible to apply for Work-Study at a VA Medical Center or with the Oregon State Employment Division. Students requesting Veterans Education Benefits must apply to the VA and provide a copy of the certificate of eligibility to Veterans Services. The certificate of eligibility is sent to the student from the VA after the application has been processed. Recipients of vocational rehabilitation funds, tribal aid, or other third-party aid must check with the Business Office and Financial Aid Office to be sure all paperwork has been received.
