The boundaries of the college district are the same as those of the Oakland School District. They are not the same as those of Oakland county, and, therefore, these boundaries overlap into Washtenaw, Livingston and Lapeer counties. Also, certain areas, namely parts of the cities of Novi, Northville and Clarenceville, as well as parts of the townships of Oakland, Addison, Rose, Holly and Groveland are excluded from the college district.

The OCC Experience • College History Campus Profiles • College Policies


The OCC Experience Students and student learning are at the heart of Oakland Community College. Therefore, the goal of providing quality instruction and a wide range of educational opportunities for students shapes decision-making and planning at the college. Administrators and staff work together with faculty to develop classes, services and experiences that create a supportive and stimulating learning environment

The College Community / Because the college serves students from such a large geographical area, five campus sites offer classes and support services for students. These sites are coordinated by an administration, staff and faculty who work together to provide excellence in all aspects of the educational process and to ensure the quality of the student experience by continually assessing and improving the college’s offerings. To make this possible, OCC encourages both diversity in thought and opinion as well as open honest communication where all staff and students are heard. Oakland Community College’s management philosophy and organizational structure encourage innovation, staff initiative, collegiality, responsibility and accountability.

A Diverse Environment / Oakland Community College welcomes all individuals; OCC does not discriminate against students on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin or ancestry, sex (including sexual harassment), age, height, weight, marital status, sexual orientation, Vietnam-era veteran status or disability.

The Student Experience / All members of the college community are committed to serving students. From those who welcome students as they enroll and choose classes, to those who maintain the campuses, to those who teach – all are united by this single purpose. Classes at OCC offer a variety of instructional modes. Lectures, small group tasks, laboratories, classroom demonstrations, computer labs and simulations and clinics offer opportunities for a high level of student/faculty interaction. Courses are enhanced by use of web-based content and technology – including online classes – to augment and reinforce instruction. Throughout each term, faculty review course outcomes and analyze classroom activities to assess student learning in order to improve educational offerings. Outside the classroom, students are served by a supportive counseling staff and enrollment team, upto-date libraries and a variety of social and cultural opportunities. Faculty and staff in these areas also work constantly to improve their services and make them more responsive to the needs of students. In this way, OCC maintains a collaborative, intellectual and social environment conducive to productive work and study for all students.

Faculty / The faculty of Oakland Community College is one of the most qualified community college faculties in Michigan. The typical preparation of the academic instructor consists of work at the graduate level. Instructors in occupational programs are highly trained specialists whose thorough knowledge comes from both formal study and job experience. Adjunct faculty are selected for their formal academic preparation as well as their professional expertise. Recognizing that the students of Oakland Community College come primarily from a diverse Oakland County population, a special effort is made to ensure that the faculty of OCC mirror that diversity. The college conducts national searches to obtain a diverse selection of the finest faculty. Faculty members continually enhance their own professional development by augmenting their education and training, belonging to professional and/or scholarly organizations, taking positions on boards and commissions, and holding public office. In addition, the art and music faculty are well known throughout the metropolitan area for their professional accomplishments.

Curriculum / Oakland Community College maintains a curriculum responsive to the lifelong educational needs of individuals and organizations in the community. All five campus sites offer General Education and other basic courses to give the student academic success skills, a foundation for later studies and a broad academic framework. Courses are continually upgraded to reflect the latest research and instructional innovations and are assessed through a process called SAGE (Student Assessment of General Education). Individual campuses house areas of specialization. Programs of study, also assessed annually, are offered in academic, vocational and pre-professional areas with degrees available in Applied Science, Business Administration, General Studies, Liberal Arts and Science.

Accreditation and Articulation / Oakland Community College is committed to serving students by providing courses in all curricula that are up-to-date and well taught. Courses and programs are assessed regularly to maintain national standards. Accreditation affirms this commitment and also allows students to transfer courses to and from other colleges and universities, in other words, to articulate with these institutions.

Basic two-year requirements which must be included in the Associate in Liberal Arts, Associate in Science and Associate in Business Administration degrees are as follows: A. English Composition (six semester hours ENG 1510 and 1520) * B. Natural Science (eight semester hours). At least one of the natural sciences will be a labor­atory course. Mathematics would be included in the natural science category. Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline. * C. Social Science (eight semester hours). Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline. * D. Humanities (eight semester hours). Courses must be taken in more than one academic discipline. 2. The participating Michigan four-year colleges may not require additional basic two-year requirements regardless of their individual course evaluations if the transfer student has received the Associate in Science, Associate in Liberal Arts, or Associate in Business Administration. 3. An Oakland Community College student must be admissible to a participating Michigan four-year college in order to benefit from this MACRAO Articulation Agreement. The MACRAO designation can be posted to a student’s record when all components have been met, even though the student may not have completed the Oakland Community College degree requirements.

* Refer to Graduation Requirements/General Education for specific courses.

History of Oakland Community College Oakland Community College was established by passage of a district-wide ballot proposal on June 8, 1964. Under its provisions, the college was authorized to levy a permanent property tax of one mill to support operations. Governance of the new institution was lodged in a six (later changed to seven) member Board of Trustees elected at-large in a nonpartisan ballot by residents of the college district. The boundaries of the OCC district coincided with those of Oakland Schools, the county’s intermediate district, roughly matching the borders of Oakland County. The college began classes in September 1965, in adapted buildings at two newly purchased sites: the Auburn Hills Campus, a demobilized army missile base dating to the 1950s, and the Highland Lakes Campus, a former county tuberculosis sanitarium in Waterford built in the 1920s. In late 1964, the college purchased an undeveloped tract in Farmington Hills and quickly undertook an ambitious ten-building construction program on the site, which opened as the Orchard Ridge Campus in September 1967. Property was also acquired in Bloomfield Hills to establish a separate administrative center, which was completed in 1969. At the time of its launch in the fall of 1965, Oakland Community College set a national record for a community college opening semester enrollment – 3,860 students. Five years later enrollments had risen to 15,142. The decade of the 1970’s saw major growth, both in OCC’s student population and physical plant. At the Auburn Hills Campus seven principal structures were completed, including classroom buildings, an administrative center, a library and a student center. At. Highland Lakes, three new structures, a physical education facility, a student center and a science building, were built to supplement the three original buildings. Orchard Ridge added a large community activities building featuring an Olympic-sized swimming pool. Growing demand spurred the college to lease properties in the cities of Oak Park and Royal Oak in order to serve better the communities of the southeast quadrant, the most populous portion of the county. By the end of the decade, OCC’s student population had grown to 22,431 students attending day and night classes at five campus sites, as well as a large number of extension centers. The 1980s marked another major construction phase of the college with the opening of a business science and art building, a criminal justice complex and an advanced technology center at the Auburn Hills Campus. Highland Lakes completed an additional classroom building, and Orchard Ridge converted its outdoor amphitheater into a 450-seat enclosed center for the performing arts. In the southeast, operations were transferred from Oak Park to a new building constructed on property purchased in the City of Southfield. The southeast building program was completed in 1982 with the opening of a large enclosed campus in downtown Royal Oak containing classrooms, administrative offices, a library, a theater and extensive facilities for arts instruction. Finally, in 1987, a permanent center was established in leased facilities in downtown Pontiac to meet the educational needs of that community. By the fall of 1990, OCC’s student population had risen to 28,667, making it the largest of Michigan’s 28 community colleges – a position it continues to occupy. In January 1999, the State of Michigan announced the award of a $5 million grant to OCC for the construction of an M-TEC information technology training center at the Auburn Hills Campus. Ground was broken in July 1999, and the 38,500 square foot facility opened for business in June 2001. SM

OCC completed the last phase of its Combined Regional Emergency Services Training (CREST) project in early 2004. Built on 22 acres at the Auburn Hills Campus, CREST is a mock town featuring paved roads, residences, a bank, a motel/hotel, gas station, convenience store, school building and a multi-story fire simulation facility. Designed as a setting for training first responders (law enforcement, fire and EMT personnel) in real-time emergency scenarios, CREST has become a national model for emergency services and anti-terrorist training. Having operated for three decades on the revenues generated by one mill, authorized at the time of its establishment, OCC embarked on a millage campaign in 1994, winning voter endorsement in June 1995. The proposal provides the college with an additional eight-tenths mill over a seven-year period. The-proposal was renewed for 10 years in 2001. The college had set renovation of an aging and deteriorated physical plant as its top priority, and a comprehensive reconstruction program encompassing all sites began as soon as the millage passed. Other stated objectives now being implemented include replacements and upgrades of instructional technology, institution of new programs with requisite staffing, and the expansion of scholarship opportunities.

College Policies In order to maintain a safe and productive learning environment and to comply with necessary legal mandates, Oakland Community College has formulated the policies listed below.

Notice of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) / The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974

was established to protect the privacy of student educational records. Only certain employees of Oakland Community College, acting individually or collectively in the educational interest of the student, are allowed access to educational records. When the collection of personally identifiable information is specifically authorized by federal law, any data collected by such officials shall be protected in a manner which will not permit the personal identification of students and their parents by other than those officials, and such personally identifiable data shall be destroyed when no longer needed. Except as allowed and required by law, no personally identifiable information from a student’s educational record will be disclosed to any third party (including parent, spouse or other students) by an official or employee of the college without prior written consent of the student.

Release of Directory Information / The college has designated certain student information to be “public” or “directory” information and, at its discretion, may release directory information without prior written consent of the student. Directory information is defined as: name, home address, telephone number, place of birth, curriculum, dates of attendance, degrees, certificates and awards received, last educational institution attended, high school attended, participation in recognized activities and sports, and weight and height of members of athletic teams. The Office of the Registrar is the only authorized agent for releasing student information. Occasionally Enrollment Services staff members at various college sites may be authorized to respond to queries about students. Students may request that all items identified as directory information, except their names, be withheld and considered restricted information. To withhold public or directory information, written notification must be received in any campus Enrollment Services Office or the Office of the Registrar. Once students have requested the withholding of directory information, the request will be honored until they file a request to reinstate the permission to release directory information.

Right of Review / Under FERPA, students have the right to review and inspect the

education records maintained by Oakland Community College. The college follows a procedure which provides the student the opportunity to challenge information deemed inaccurate, misleading or otherwise in violation of that student’s privacy or other rights and request an amendment to the offending record. Students may file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning an alleged failure of OCC to comply with the requirements of FERPA. A copy of the college’s policy is available at the Records Office of the Auburn Hills, Highland Lakes, Orchard Ridge, Royal Oak and Southfield campuses. The college policy may also be obtained at: Office of the Registrar Bee Administration Center 2480 Opdyke Road Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304-2266 Phone: 248.341.2192 Students wishing to review records under the auspices of FERPA must initiate the process at this same address.

Incident/Medical Assistance / The college will offer any assistance necessary in response to incidents or injuries that occur on college property; however, the college will bear no responsibility for the cost of such services, which must be billed directly to the recipient.

Policy about Children on Campus / In order not to disrupt the teaching and learning activities, students, staff and visitors are not permitted to have children accompany them into college classrooms, laboratories, studios or libraries whether the children be supervised or not. The only exceptions are prearranged tours, field trips or college-coordinated programs for children.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Admissions •  22


Placement Academic Placement Philosophy / Community colleges enroll a highly diverse population of students who bring a broad range of skill levels to their studies. This variety in student skill levels dictates a need for appropriate entry-level evaluation, educational counseling and course placement in order to increase the probability of student success. A comprehensive entry-level evaluation and placement program is one component in a total strategy to provide educational opportunities for the ultimate achievement of both student and institutional goals. Entry-level evaluation and placement is a systematic process intended to identify student skills and needs. Data garnered through evaluation enables college staff to assist students in appropriate choices, determine which educational interventions are most likely to ensure student success and assist policy makers in decision-making.

Placement Tests / OCC placement tests are administered to all new students who plan to enroll in credit classes, except those exempted (see below). These tests measure students’ skills in English or ESL (English as a Second Language) and mathematics. Counselors will use these results along with other information to help students make their educational plans. Those students for whom English is the native language take COMPASS (COMputer-adaptive Placement Assessment and Support System). Those students for whom English is not the native language take MTELP (Michigan Test of English Language Proficiency). Placement tests in English or ESL and math are given regularly throughout the year before registration. The placement results will help students and their OCC counselor select appropriate English or ESL and math courses. Students may be exempt from these placement tests under certain conditions. Please refer to the following information for applicability. Those who qualify for exemption under any of these conditions, must submit copies of the appropriate documentation to the campus Enrollment Services Department. Disabled or disadvantaged students should consult the campus Accessibility Compliance Center and Educational Support Services (ACCESS) office for assistance with the scheduling and administration of placement tests. Placement in English (COMPASS) All new students whose native language is English must take COMPASS. Students may be exempt from taking the COMPASS English test if they meet any ONE of the following conditions: • Have documentation of an Advanced English Placement score of 3 or higher • Have documentation of a CLEP score in Composition that is the equivalent of ENG 1510 • Have scored one of the following on the ACT exam with combined English and Reading sub-scores of: – 38 or higher with minumum of 18 on each test – 29-37 with minimum of 11 on each test – 22-28 with minimum of 11 on each test • Have documentation of an SAT Critical Reading/Verbal score of 450 or higher • Have a transcript showing achievement of a grade of “C” or higher in an equivalent college-level composition course • Have evidence of an English COMPASS score (combined Writing Skills and Reading)

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Placement •  23


• Have been admitted to OCC as a college guest student with a college Guest Application (Note: guest applications must be renewed each semester of enrollment; also note High School Guests are not exempt). • Have earned an associate degree or higher from an accredited U.S. college or university • Have earned a bachelor degree from a non-U.S. academic institution with the equivalent to freshman Composition ENG-1510 Students may retake the COMPASS placement test one time by scheduling a “retake” at the appropriate campus ASC. One additional retake may be authorized by a counselor or the English COMPASS Coordinator. Placement will be determined by the student’s best score. Students may appeal their final best English placement. Placement in ESL (MTELP) All new students for whom English is a second language must take MTELP or submit ACT scores. Students may be exempt from this testing if they meet any one of the following conditions: • Have documentation of ACT scores showing 22 or higher on the English subtest with a minimum of 11 on both English and reading subscores. • Have documentation of an SAT critical reading/verbal score of 450 or higher. • Have evidence of completing a course equivalent to ENG 1510. • Have evidence of completing an associate degree or higher from an accredited U.S. college or university. • Have been admitted to OCC under a College Guest Application from another college where they are enrolled in college-level courses (Note: guest applications must be renewed each semester of enrollment). Any student who wishes to enroll in any ESL course must take the MTELP Placement test. • Have an exemption from taking MTELP and the ability to enroll in English 1510 because they have an official TOEFL score of: Internet-based – total score of 79 or higher with a writing score of 24 or higher; Computer-based – total score of 213 or higher with a writing score of 5.0 or higher; Paper-based – 550 or higher with a writing (TWE) score of 5.0 or higher. Both official scores must be presented to the appropriate college personnel for the students to be exempt. A student can re-test on the MTELP if it has been one calendar year since the last MTELP and no OCC ESL courses have been taken, or if one calendar year has passed since the end of the semester in which the student was enrolled in an OCC ESL course. No currently enrolled students in OCC ESL courses can re-test. There is an assessment test in each ESL class the first day of instruction which serves as the appeal process. If a student scores between 15 and 24 on the MTELP, a counselor can authorize this student to take a writing sample for possible placement into the first level ESL credit classes. Placement in Math (COMPASS) In order to register for a math course, students must be placed into the appropriate level. The COMPASS Math Placement will identify for students the appropriate entrylevel math course. Students may take math classes at or below the course level indicated by their score. They may take this initial placement test when they apply for admission or at a later date by contacting any OCC campus Academic Support Center (ASC). Unless specifically exempted, all students including those who plan to take MAT 2530 (Mathematics for Elementary Teachers I), must complete math placement testing before registering in a math class.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Placement •  24


Students who disagree with their initial math placement may repeat the COMPASS Math Placement test a total of two times within two years. Those students who still disagree with their results after taking a COMPASS Math Placement test a second time should contact an OCC counselor. Students who are still not satisfied may appeal their math placement. The appeal process can be accessed through the OCC website at www.oaklandcc.edu/mathematics. Students are exempt from the COMPASS Math Placement if they meet any one of the following conditions: • Have documentation of ACT math scores showing 12 or higher • Have earned a bachelors degree or higher from an accredited U.S. college or university • Have been admitted to OCC under a College Guest Application from another college or university • Have evidence of passing with a “C” or better the prerequisite math course at OCC or the equivalent college transfer course at another accredited college within the past three years • Have earned credit for a math course at OCC or at another accredited college and wish to enroll in the same math course • Have earned a score of 3 or higher on the Advanced Placement Exam in Calculus AB or BC • Have documentation of a COMPASS Math Placement score taken elsewhere within the past two years. Practice math placement problems with answers are available online at www. oaklandcc.edu/mathematics or at each campus in the ASC. Students are recommended to “brush-up” on their math before taking the COMPASS math placement test. For additional math placement information, see the current Schedule of Classes or speak with a counselor.

Scheduling Placement Tests / Applicants should call any home campus Academic Support Center (ASC) or Testing Center (Orchard Ridge Campus only) to schedule an appointment and for further information. Information is also available on the campus ASC website at www.oaklandcc.edu/asc. An Application for Admission must be processed by Enrollment Services prior to scheduling any placement test.

Biology Proficiency Test / If a student is planning on enrolling into BIO 1570 (Microbiology of Health and Disease) or BIO 2630 (Human Anatomy and Physiology I), then the following applies: Course Prerequisite No OCC student may enroll into BIO 1570 or BIO 2630 unless she/he has met the prerequisite – a satisfactory score on the OCC Biology Proficiency Test or a grade of “C” or better in BIO 1511 or BIO 1530 (or equivalent college transfer course) within the last 5 years. Testing The Biology Proficiency Test is computerized. Information regarding test dates, times and location are available by contacting Enrollment Services, Counseling or the Academic Support Center at any campus. In order to take the test, students must bring a valid photo ID and know their OCC student ID. Exemptions Students are exempt from the Biology Proficiency Test if they meet any one of the following conditions: • Have earned a “C” or higher in BIO 1570 or BIO 2630 in the last 5 years and plan on enrolling into BIO 1570 or BIO 2630 • Have a score of “3” or better on the AP Biology exam, taken within the last 5 years • Have achieved a passing CLEP score on the SUBJECT exam in General Biology, taken within the last 5 years • Have earned a bachelor degree or higher from a U.S. institution or equivalent • Have been admitted to OCC under a guest application from another college (NOTE: high school guest students are NOT eligible for a waiver). Scores Students’ scores on the Biology Proficiency Test will place them in the appropriate course, thus enhancing their academic success. A score of 70% or higher on the Biology Proficiency Test will allow students to enroll in BIO 1570 or BIO 2630. If students do not receive a score of 70% or higher, then they should spend time studying before retaking the test. The Biology Proficiency Test may be retaken only one time. Failure to pass the test a second time means that students must enroll in BIO 1511 or BIO 1530. The passing score of 70% or higher will be valid for 5 years.

AP (Advanced Placement) and CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) / Oakland Community College participates in the Advanced Placement Program of the College Board and grants credit with scores of three or higher. Credit will also be granted for the CLEP General Examinations and Subject Exams when scores are at or above the fiftieth percentile.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Placement •  26


Transfer Equivalency / When the knowledge and content between an OCC course and another institution’s course are shown to be equal, and the two courses are within one credit hour of each other, OCC may declare the courses as equivalent. That means, if students have taken the course at the other institution, they are deemed to have equivalent knowledge as that gained from taking the OCC course although the credit value may differ slightly due to a difference in calendar systems. As a result, the course from the other institution will satisfy any prerequisite, corequisite, program, admission, graduation or certification requirement in the same manner as would the OCC course. Therefore, requiring the retaking of a course simply because there is a difference in credit is inconsistent with college policy on duplicate course credit. When the course experience is part of the General Education Requirements, the college Registrar shall make the final decision. In fact, the college Registrar shall serve as the arbiter in any equivalency dispute.

Tech Prep / Tech Prep Advance Placement Agreements exist between Oakland Community College and a number of area high school districts. High school students seeking further information should contact their high school counselor or call the counseling department at any OCC campus and make an appointment with the Tech Prep counselor at that campus.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Placement •  27


Registration General / Students must meet prerequisites and/or corequisites of courses in which they

intend to enroll. F-I students must see the International Student Advisor before registration. The college reserves the right to enact an administrative drop of students from courses for which they do not meet the requirements.

Preliminary Registration Steps / After being admitted, the student should: 1. Participate in a COMPASS or MTELP English assessment and a COMPASS mathematics assessment as required. 2. Contact the campus counseling office to arrange an appointment with a counselor.

Registration Periods / Registration begins with both Web and Touch*Tone registration services. The expanded hours of service are detailed in the current Schedule of Classes. Campus registration, which adds walk-in service with expanded office hours, is scheduled immediately preceding the beginning of semester classes. The college attempts to serve both continuing and new students at this time. Students already registered may adjust their schedules during this Walk-in registration period. Web and Touch*Tone registration periods also offer an alternative to standing in lines during this period. An additional drop/add period is provided during the first several days of classes. Students should register according to the instructions printed in the Schedule of Classes. Web registration: webreg.oaklandcc.edu. Touch*Tone registration: 248.341.2345.

Registration Requirements Each student should obtain assistance from educational counselors who are available at each site. Each campus counseling department operates independently and should be contacted for an appointment. Prerequisites The student is responsible for satisfying all prerequisites and/or co-requisites of any selected class prior to attempting enrollment. Automated system checks enforce this requirement and will disallow registration efforts for those not meeting course qualifications. Secondary checks may reveal enrolled students who do not meet the prerequisite or corequisite requirements after registration. These students may be administratively withdrawn from their courses. Tuition

The student must pay the full amount of tuition and fees by the payment deadline stated in the Schedule of Classes. Students who qualify for financial assistance must obtain the appropriate documents from the campus Financial Assistance Office. High school dual-enrolled and other students whose financial obligations are being met by employers or other third party sponsors must submit the appropriate documents by the payment deadline. Students who have failed to meet their financial obligation to the college will have a financial hold placed on their records to prevent registration and release of their transcript. These holds will be removed when all obligations are discharged.

Addresses Registration is blocked for students whose addresses have been questioned by the college and have not yet been verified by the student. Also, a hold blocking registration is routinely applied when mail issued by the college is returned as undeliverable or when the college is notified that mail is being forwarded to a new address. It is the responsibility of every student to ensure that the college has the student’s current address on file. Address changes should be made with the Enrollment Services Office on campus. Students must supply proof of residency as defined in the Residency Policy section. For more information regarding registration for courses, see the current Schedule of Classes.

Cash payments will be required thereafter. The student will continue to be responsible for the bad check fee of $20, the non-refundable registration ($25.00) and technology ($10.00) fees, and any other funds owed the college.

Financial Holds /  Transcripts will not be issued for students who have indebtedness to the college or have failed to comply with regulations covering student obligations. This hold also prevents registration activity (in-person, by phone or by web) and the official release of any information on the student derived from the academic history or record. This includes course information and enrollment status certifications as well as transcripts.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Tuition and Fees  •  32


Tuition Refunds Refund Policy /  Refunds are made to a student only after an official drop has been executed with the college within the prescribed refund period. Failure to properly file can result in loss of tuition refund. Students on financial hold will not be issued refunds until all financial obligations are met.

College Cancelled Classes /  The college may cancel classes or sections at any time for any reason. In those instances, a 100 percent refund of tuition and fees for those specific classes will be issued. There is no guarantee that a suitable alternate class may be available.

Refund Schedule /  The length of the course section determines the time period for a 100% tuition refund. Note: The nonrefundable Registration and Technology Fees are assessed when you register. If you drop classes or are dropped from classes for nonpayment, you are still responsible for these fees. 15-week or longer classes......................................................

Applying for Financial Assistance Oakland Community College offers a wide range of financial assistance programs consisting of: • Grants • Loans • Part-time Employment • Scholarships These programs are designed to provide qualified students with funds to assist them in the pursuit of their educational goals. Funds are provided by: • • • •

Federal Government Oakland Community College Private Donors State of Michigan

Most awards are based on financial need, but there are programs that offer assistance based on academic achievement and/or non-need. All programs, criteria and funding are subject to change without notice. Students must read the OCC Schedule of Classes, The Guide to Federal Student Aid and campus student bulletins for current financial assistance information. The Guide to Federal Student Aid provides information to students and may be obtained at the campus or by calling 1.800.4 FED AID or 800.433.3243. There are five OCC Student Financial Resources and Scholarships offices: Auburn Hills............................................. 248.232.4340 Highland Lakes....................................... 248.942.3040 Orchard Ridge....................................... 248.522.3440 Royal Oak............................................... 248.246.2440 Southfield................................................ 248.233.2940

How to Apply for Financial Assistance / Students may complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form online at www.fafsa.gov. Students are encouraged to complete the FAFSA On The Web Worksheet before completing the FAFSA online. Other financial aid literature is available at the campuses. The OCC Application Priority Date for 2010-2011 is April 15, 2010. Files submitted by this date are processed first. If your file is complete with accurate information and submitted by the dates below, your file will be processed before classes begin. File processing continues throughout the semester for students who apply late. 2010 – 11 Guaranteed Processing Deadline Dates (GPDD) Fall – June 30, 2010 Winter – October 30, 2010

Determination of Eligibility / The Federal Methodology Formula measures a family’s ability to pay college expenses by assessing its financial strength. Family/student income and assets, family size, retirement needs of parents and number of children in college are just some of the factors considered with the federal formula. As a result of the FAFSA application (which supplies the data used in the formula), each family/student will receive an Expected Family Contribution (EFC). This is the amount that the family/student could reasonably contribute toward educational expenses. A family/student demonstrates need when the Cost of Attendance minus the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) is greater than zero. The Cost of Attendance is an average of what it will cost to attend a particular institution for an academic year. It includes tuition and fees, books and supplies, room and board, travel costs and miscellaneous personal expenses. Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Applying for Financial Assistance •  34


Cost of Attendance – Expected Family Contribution (EFC) = Financial Need/Eligibility for Assistance

For detailed information on cost of attendance at OCC, contact any of the campus Student Financial Resources and Scholarships offices.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements for Financial Assistance Eligibility / Federal regulations require a student to make academic

progress toward the completion of a degree or certificate when receiving financial assistance. Each school’s academic progress policy must include a cumulative review of credits attempted for periods of enrollment in which the student did not receive assistance as well as the semesters he or she did receive assistance. Students may obtain a copy of the OCC Satisfactory Academic Progress policy at any campus Student Financial Resources and Scholarships office. Students who do not meet Satisfactory Academic Progress must make a written appeal to the Student Financial Resources and Scholarships office. Appeals are not automatically approved. These appeals must fully explain and document any mitigating circumstances. Eligibility for various types of financial assistance (including loans) will be based on this appeal. Each appeal will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis. All decisions are final.

Non-traditional Students / A student without a high school diploma or its

recognized equivalent (GED) is eligible to receive financial assistance if the student meets the minimum requirements for the COMPASS English and Mathematics tests. The following scores must be earned before financial assistance can be awarded. COMPASS English Placement Writing – 32 Reading – 62 COMPASS Mathematics Placement Pre-Algebra/Numerical - 25 Students who do not pass the COMPASS English and Mathematics tests must successfully complete at least six credits in their degree program. Financial aid funds cannot be used to pay for these credits. Once this requirement is fulfilled, students may be eligible to receive financial aid funds for subsequent enrollment periods.

Returning OCC Financial Assistance Students / All students must

re-apply for financial assistance each academic year (fall through winter semesters). A separate application for summer is required. To ensure continued eligibility for financial assistance, a student must not owe a refund on a federal grant, be in default on a student loan, or have borrowed in excess of federal student loan limits at any institution attended, and also must meet OCC Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress Requirements.

Concurrent Enrollees / Students cannot receive financial assistance at another

institution and OCC concurrently. The student will be responsible for any over-awards. In addition, if any over-payment is made, the student will be ineligible for further assistance until the funds are recovered.

Home-Schooled Students / Financial Assistance is available to students who have completed a high school education in a home school setting approved under state law.

Study Abroad / Enrollment in a program of study abroad that is approved for

credit by OCC may be considered enrollment for purposes of applying for federal financial assistance.

Process of Awarding Need-Based Assistance / Oakland Community

College first awards any grants and/or scholarships for which a student is qualified. Work study is offered second, and loans are awarded based on the student’s request. Types of financial assistance and amounts awarded depend on the student’s eligibility, financial need and availability of funds. Students will receive e-mail notification that the online award letter is available. Financial aid disbursement information, registration information and other relevant information is available on the website.

Student Financial Resources and Scholarships Return of Federal (Title IV) Funds / Financial assistance recipients must notify the office of Student Financial Resources and Scholarships when there is a change in enrollment status. If a student receiving Title IV aid completely withdraws from all classes before completing 60% of the term, Student Financial Resources and Scholarships is required to determine how much financial aid has been earned up to the date of withdrawal. Unearned Title IV funds must be returned by the student (depending on the calculation) to the federal government. Once a student has been enrolled for more than 60% of the semester, the student has earned the federal financial assistance. Students who withdraw from all of their classes prior to 60% of the semester will have their financial assistance recalculated based on the percentage of the term completed. Funds must be returned to the following federal programs in the following order: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Unsubsidized Direct Stafford loans (other than PLUS loans) Subsidized Direct Stafford loans Federal Perkins Loans Direct PLUS loans Federal Pell Grants for which a return of funds is required Academic Competitiveness Grants for which a return of funds is required National Smart Grants for which a return of funds is required Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) for which a return of funds is required

If a student never attends a class(es), the instructor(s) will assign an “N” grade(s). When a student receives an “N” grade(s), the financial assistance award may be reduced or cancelled, and the student will be responsible for any outstanding balance owed to the federal government and to OCC as a result of this adjustment. Withdrawing/dropping from classes and/or never attending classes may also affect the student’s academic progress and result in termination of financial assistance. The student is encouraged to contact the Student Financial Resources and Scholarships office BEFORE changing enrollment status. The financial aid staff can provide additional information which will assist the student in making an informed decision. If the student doesn’t pay the amount owed, the student will be ineligible for further financial assistance from any post-secondary institution that participates in the Title IV (federal) financial aid programs. Students who decide to withdraw or drop classes must complete the “Student Course Drop Form” and submit it to the Enrollment Services for processing or drop the course on the web.

HOPE Scholarship Tax Credit, Lifetime Learning Tax Credit and Tuition and Fees Tax Deduction Information and requirements are available at www.nasfaa.org/redesign/ taxbenefitsguide.html and the IRS Publication 970 at www.irs.gov/publications/p970/ index.html. For assistance in determining your eligibility, contact the IRS or your tax advisor.

Important Tax Information You Should Know / Generally, financial assistance is tax exempt if the amount is received for qualified tuition and related expenses required for courses at the educational institution (tuition, fees, books, supplies and equipment). The recipient must maintain records that establish the amounts used for qualified tuition and related expenses for his or her tax records. Records supporting such amounts would include copies of relevant bills, receipts, cancelled checks, or other records that clearly reflect the use of the money from financial assistance. Some students who do not earn enough money to file income tax may need to consider whether financial assistance makes a difference in their tax filing status. Questions regarding tax issues should be directed to the IRS or your tax preparer.

Student Rights and Responsibilities

IN THIS SECTION

Student Rights • Assessment of Learning Student Responsibilities • Student Conduct


Student Rights Personal Empowerment, Integrity and Ethical Commitment / Oakland Community College is an open door institution that accepts students who present a broad range of intellectual capacities and academic preparation. All students accepted at OCC have an equal opportunity to learn and grow, empowering them to succeed in academic, personal and professional endeavors. Indeed, over the years, the community college movement has grown in the level of expectation of its students from “the right to fail” to “the ability to benefit.” The college’s commitment to every student’s “ability to benefit” as well as to “observing the tenets of academic honesty” are evidence of its institutional integrity. (Handbook of Accreditation, Higher Learning Commission, 30 North La Salle Street, Suite 2400, Chicago, Illinois 60602-2504, 312.263.0456.)

Shared Governance / The opportunity for sharing in the governance of Oakland Community College is extended to the students by the Board of Trustees through student representation at Board meetings. Additionally, students may share in the ongoing operations of the college through participation in the College Academic Senate.

Assessment of Learning Assessment is an on-going process aimed at understanding and improving student learning. It involves making our expectations clear to students and setting appropriate outcomes for learning. It helps determine how well student performance matches those outcomes. It uses the resulting information to improve student learning. The assessment process helps to support OCC’s shared academic culture dedicated to assuring and improving student learning. Assessment of student learning occurs at various academic levels. The goals at each level are different.

Classroom Assessment / The goal of classroom assessment is to enhance student learning. Instructors use a variety of methods in the classroom to get feedback about student learning in terms of course objectives.

Program Assessment / Every degree, diploma and certificate program has a Statement of Purpose and learning outcomes. Each learning outcome is measured by the faculty in the program through a variety of assignments, tests, practicums, projects and licensing examinations. Also, program graduates are surveyed to get feedback about how well the program prepared them for their jobs. The goal of program assessment is to revise and improve the curriculum of the program and to insure student success.

General Education Outcomes / Students come to college for a variety of reasons. Regardless of the reason, it is the goal of the college to give its students an education including general skills and knowledge critical for success in life. Therefore, the OCC faculty have identified nine general education outcomes and have incorporated them into the general education requirements of the college. These outcomes are assessed in the same way as course learning objectives in the classroom as well as during SAGE week activities and faculty assessment day. On faculty assessment day, participants evaluate the work of students with substantial coursework in general education at OCC using OCC faculty-developed rubrics.

Where to Find Out More About Assessment / Students desiring additional information may contact the Director of Assessment and Effectiveness at 248.522.3882.

Student Bill of Responsibilities In order to maximize their learning potential, students have the responsibility: • • • • • • • • •

To come to every class prepared to listen, participate and learn; To read the textbook(s) carefully; To ask questions of the instructor when they are unclear; To keep an open mind and try to comprehend what others are trying to convey; To consult the instructor, a tutor, classmates and other resources whenever they need assistance; To view their instructors as partners in their education, not as impediments to learning; To let the instructor and group members know if they cannot attend a class; To learn about others’ cultures and experiences in the world; To share their life experiences and perspectives in order to facilitate other students’ learning.

Attendance Policy / Students are expected to attend all class meetings. The syllabus for each course sets forth the instructor’s attendance policy.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Student Responsibilities  •  46


Student Conduct Students attending Oakland Community College are expected to respect and abide by the laws governing the community in which the college is located as well as the rules, regulations and policies of the college. Students are expected to be familiar with all of the rules and regulations.

Student Discipline Guidelines /  1.  Procedural Due Process Procedural due process appropriate to the specific case must be followed prior to the imposition of discipline for violation of rules and regulations. Some elements of due process, such as timely and specific notice of charges, are almost always appropriate regardless of the gravity of the violation alleged. Other elements of due process may be appropriate to the hearing of an appeal. Prior to the hearing, the student shall receive timely and specific notice of the charges. During the hearing, the student shall have the opportunity to rebut the adverse testimony. Other procedural safeguards may be followed as required by the circumstances. 2.  Burden and Standard of Proof The burden shall be on the college to show by a preponderance of the evidence that the student violated the rules and regulations. 3.  Status of Student Pending Hearing and Appeal A student’s status shall not be changed prior to hearing an appeal unless there is reasonable cause to believe that the student’s status (for example, his or her continued presence in the classroom) poses a danger to others or will disrupt the educational process. The decision to alter a student’s status pending hearing and appeal will be made by the responsible dean. 4.  Forms of Discipline Disciplinary action must be proportionate to the violation and, depending on the nature of the violation, may take the form of a reprimand; restrictions on activities or privileges; restitution; denial of honors, certificate or degree; probation; temporary or permanent suspension from a class or program; dismissal from the college; or other measures appropriate under the circumstances of the case. 5.  Procedures for Violation of Student Conduct The following procedures shall govern cases where a violation of any rule or regulation regarding classroom conduct is alleged. If misconduct warrants an immediate suspension from the class for the remainder of the class period, the instructor may do so without a prior hearing. Under certain circumstances, Public Safety Officers may be called upon to help stabilize a scene. The instructor shall provide written notice to the dean responsible for Student Services as soon as practicable. Violations of any rule or regulation should be reported to any Oakland Community College staff, public safety officer, faculty member or administrator. If appropriate, the Behavioral Assessment Response Team (BART) will investigate and make a determination of actions to be taken. BART, minimally will be comprised of an OCC counselor, public safety officer and dean, will decide the action warranted. The Team may choose to meet with the student if deemed appropriate The student may appeal the decision to the campus president (see Appeal Process, subparagraph 6).

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Student Conduct  •  47


6.  Appeal Process Appeals must be filed in writing to the campus president within 20 calendar days of the date the notice of action by BART was issued. The appeal shall state the reason(s) the decision should not stand. As soon as reasonably possible, the office of the campus president shall notify the student in writing of the hearing date for the appeal. The campus president shall then conduct a hearing (unless waived by the student) and shall affirm, modify or reverse the decision. The campus president’s decision shall be final.

Administrative Withdrawal / When a student’s behavior is unacceptable in a learning environment and the rights and/or safety of other students or staff are violated, the student may be administratively withdrawn. BART will review all claims of inappropriate behavior with the student prior to administrative withdrawal. Students subject to this withdrawal may initiate an appeal in accordance with the appeals process (see Appeal Process, subparagraph 6).

Equal Opportunity/Sexual Harassment Complaint Procedure  /  Oakland Community College does not discriminate against applicants, employees or students on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin or ancestry, sex (including sexual harassment), age, height, weight, marital status, sexual orientation, Vietnam era veteran status, or disability in its employment practices and/or educational programs or activities. Concerns about the above should be communicated to: Equal Opportunity Compliance Officer Oakland Community College 2480 Opdyke Road Bloomfield Hills, Ml 48304-2266 Phone: 248.341.2000

Course and Grading Policies

IN THIS SECTION

Course Regulations • Grading System Academic Appeals • Transcripts


Course Regulations Declaration of a Curriculum of Study / The college serves many needs of the enrolled student. By declaring a curriculum of study a degree-oriented student keeps the college informed of this goal. Students are expected to declare a curriculum of study as soon as possible. Students wishing to identify or change their curriculum designation must choose a curriculum from the list of active programs. Students who know that degree attainment is not their goal, should make the curriculum designation of NDS (non-degree student). The designation UND (undecided) is reserved for the degree-oriented student who is unsure of the specific degree or program desired.

Student Load / A student’s load status for a semester will not be computed until the first business day after the 100% refund period has ended to ensure enrollment. To avoid overburdening themselves, students planning their class schedules should keep in mind the number of hours per week that they will be attending classes, the number of hours per week that will be spent doing homework, and the number of hours per week that students plan to work.

Full-Time Status / Students enrolled for 12 or more credit hours in a given semester will be verified as full-time students in that semester.

Part-Time Status / Students enrolled for at least 0.5 credit hour but less than 12 credit hours will be verified as part-time students in that semester.

Overload Status / Students wishing to enroll for more than 17 credit hours must receive special permission from an OCC counselor.

Change of Class Schedule / Students are expected to complete a class schedule during registration and maintain that schedule for the entire semester. If, for any reason, students wish to change their program or any of their courses, they must go through the Drop/Add procedure at the campus. Until the requested change is officially authorized, the students should attend all classes in which they originally enrolled.

Auditing a Course / Students wishing to audit a course must indicate their desire when registering. Changes to or from audit status are permitted through the last day of the Drop/Add Period as defined in the Schedule of Classes. Audit students must meet appropriate course prerequisites. Full tuition and fees will apply. The status of audit means the student will not earn credit to satisfy course, program or degree requirements. Audited courses do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable, nor will they be used in determining academic load for financial aid, veteran’s certification or athletic eligibility. The mark of AU will appear on the transcript for courses that were audited. A student auditing a class is expected to participate as a regularly-enrolled student unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Course Regulations  •  50


Dropping a Course / Students may drop a class or cancel enrollment by web or

Touch*Tone during registration periods. Student-initiated drops may be transacted on the web or in person at any campus once classes begin. Student drops transacted after the refund period will appear as a “W” mark on the transcript. Student-initiated drops will not be permitted beyond the instructional week indicated in the following table:

attempted three or more times must request approval of an academic counselor. A course may be repeated. However, the listing of the original grade remains part of the permanent record. The best grade and credits are used to compute the grade point average. A student need not repeat a course in which an “F” was earned unless it is a prerequisite to another course or it is a course required for graduation. Certain courses have been designated as “equate” courses. Taking both a course and its equivalent has the same effect as repeating that course.

Transfer Courses / Oakland Community College offers college courses that fulfill

requirements in the first two years of a Bachelor degree. The courses are articulated with degree programs at other colleges and universities throughout the state. Transfer guides are available at campus counseling centers and on the web at www.macrao.org.

Grading System Grades / Students will be awarded letter grades for all coursework as follows:

GRADE DESCRIPTION POINTS

A.......................................... Excellent...........................................4.0 A-....................................................................................................3.7 B+..................................................................................................3.3 B..............................................Good..............................................3.0 B-....................................................................................................2.7 C+..................................................................................................2.3 C.......................................... Average...........................................2.0 C-....................................................................................................1.7 D+..................................................................................................1.3 D.....................................................................................................1.0 F.............................................Failure.............................................0.0

Marks /  AU – Audit A student may register for a course without credit. This election must be made at the time of registration or schedule adjustment. Grades of “AU” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This grade is not used in the calculation of GPA. CP – Continuing Progress A mark designated for selective use for students enrolled in designated courses who have attended class regularly and made reasonable effort toward progress but have not demonstrated a passing level of proficiency. The “CP” will remain on the transcript indefinitely. Upon re-enrollment and completion, the letter grade issued will be used for purposes of figuring the grade point average. I – Incomplete This faculty initiated mark will be used sparingly and only when an emergency prevents a student from completing course work during the regular college session. The student is responsible for completing a written agreement with the instructor detailing the requirements to be met for the completion of the “I” before it is assigned. The student is not to register for a course in which he or she has a current mark of “I”. Without prior facultyinitiated action to change the “I”, this mark will become a WP” one year subsequent to its original issue. Marks of “I” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This mark is not used in the calculation of GPA, but it may affect the eligibility for financial aid. N – Non-Attendant This mark is awarded to students who, though registered, never attended class, did not officially drop, and have no gradable work. Non-attendance will be reported to the Student Financial Resources and Scholarships Office after 20% of the class meetings have taken place for a given course. Marks of “N” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This mark is not used in the calculation of GPA, but it may affect the eligibility for financial aid. NR – Not-Reported Grade was not reported or submitted. W – Student-Initiated Withdrawal This mark is awarded to students who initiate the process to officially drop the course during the time specified for the academic period. Marks of “W” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This mark is not used in the calculation of GPA, but it may affect the eligibility for financial aid. Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Grading System  •  52


WF – Faculty-Initiated Withdrawal/Failing This mark is awarded to indicate insufficient class participation to merit a passing grade. Marks of “WF” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This mark is not used in the calculation of GPA, but it may affect the eligibility for financial aid. WP – Faculty-Initiated Withdrawal/Passing This mark is awarded to indicate insufficient class participation to merit a permanent grade. Marks of “WP” do not satisfy prerequisites and are not transferable. This mark is not used in the calculation of GPA, but it may affect the eligibility for financial aid.

Grade Reports / All grade reports will be available from the OCC website on the third business day following the end of the semester. (see OCC Online Services at webreg.oaklandcc.edu) Grades not available at that time will be posted as soon as received by the Office of the Registrar from the faculty. Students needing paper copies of the academic record for the recent semester may request the document from Online Services or Enrollment Services. As part of the security and data integrity program, these documents can only be mailed to the address on record with the college.

Honors / At the end of each fall and winter semester a Dean’s List will be produced naming those students who, during the respective semester, earned a 3.5 GPA or higher for a load of at least 6 credits hours at the time that the college calculates GPA’s for that semester. Students eligible for inclusion on the dean’s list will be notified by mail approximately one month from the end of the semester.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Grading System  •  53


Grade Appeal Policy / A grade appeal must be made within six months from the date the original grade is formally issued. The steps to appeal are found in this catalog under Academic Appeals Policy (pp. 54-55).

Change of Grade Policy / A change of grade may not be submitted after one calendar year from the date the original grade is formally issued.

Acceptance of Transfer Credit / Undergraduate course credit completed with a 2.00 or higher grade at an institution of higher education accredited by one of the eight regional institutional accrediting bodies recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) will be accepted as transfer credit at Oakland Community College. The college at which the credit was earned must have been accredited at the time the courses were completed for credit. Re-admitted students will be subject to current catalog requirements with regard to active programs. Additionally, readmitted students may find that certain previously approved credit from non-accredited institutions may not be continued. Oakland Community College will also consider the acceptance of course credit from an accredited national, or professional body recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) as listed in the Directory of the American Council on Education (ACE). This consideration will extend to Armed Services programs and certain business and industry programs and certificates listed in the ACE directory. Other credit may be considered. The College Registrar makes the final determination of acceptance. Only official transcripts can be accepted for the evaluation of transfer credit. OCC considers a transcript official only if it bears the seal and signature of the prime recordkeeper and is sent directly from the previous institution to the OCC Office of Enrollment Services. The mailing address is Transcript Evaluation Office of Enrollment Services Oakland Community College 2480 Opdyke Road Bloomfield Hills, Ml 48304-2266 Transcripts should be received at OCC at least one month prior to Final Registration to ensure transfer credit availability for use in registration advising. Students with any questions about the transferability of prior course work should consult with a counselor before registering. The OCC transcript does not list individual courses accepted from other institutions but rather summarizes the amount of credit earned from that institution. Transfer credit does not influence the OCC grade point average. Courses that are not directly equivalent to Oakland Community College courses may be accepted as elective credits to apply against requirements of a particular program. OCC does not accept transfer credits to replace required technical courses for the Associate of Applied Science Degree. Exceptions are granted only by consent of the appropriate technical program faculty.

Credit by Examination / Oakland Community College recognizes that some students enter college with proficiencies that warrant college credit. Students may request credit by examination to demonstrate skills and knowledge in many courses offered by the college. Students interested in credit by examination should obtain the forms from the Campus Office of the Dean, then consult with the appropriate academic department to discuss the feasibility of completing the examination. Tuition payment must precede sitting for the examination. If the request is approved with advance notice at the Campus Academic Dean’s office and payment of the appropriate tuition has been made, such examination will be given.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Grading System   •  54


The instructor must enter the final grade on the form and forward the form to the dean for approval. The credit and grade earned will be entered on the student academic record as of the semester that the student sat for the examination. Credit by examination is intended for students who have attained high levels of proficiency prior to entering OCC. It is not intended for students desiring independent study or for students enrolled in the course. Credit by examination will not be permitted for a lower-level course if credit has been earned in an advanced course within the same sequence. Students seeking credit by examination must have been admitted to OCC. Credit by examination may not be used to repeat a previously completed OCC course or a previous credit by examination.

Academic Sanction / A student is in Good Standing when that student has: • a most recent semester grade point average (SGPA) of 2.0 or higher and • a cumulative grade point average (CGPA) of 2.0 or higher Maintaining these standards makes a student eligible for an academic degree or certificate. In an effort to promote student success, the college has developed a program of academic sanctions which shall be triggered when the semester GPA of a student falls below 2.0. • Upon the first such semester following a semester clear of any academic sanction, the college will issue an Academic Warning to the student advising that greater care should be exercised to prevent a recurrence. • In the event that this condition continues for a second consecutive semester, the student will be issued another Academic Warning if the cumulative GPA is at or above 2.0. However, if the cumulative GPA is at or below 2.0, regardless of the semester GPA, the student will be placed on Academic Intervention. The counselor may also ask that the student observe other restrictions appropriate to his or her academic profile. • If the student’s semester GPA is found to be below 2.0 for a third consecutive semester, the college will review that student’s academic record. If this review reveals that the cumulative GPA is above 2.0, the student will be continued on Academic Intervention status with any restrictions deemed appropriate by a college counselor.    If the examination reveals that both the semester and cumulative GPAs are below 2.0, the student will be suspended for one calendar year. During this time away from the college, the student is asked to reflect on this condition and determine if the pursuit of an academic credential is proper at this time. Before returning from this suspension, the student will be required to see a college counselor.    If the student returns to the college after the period of Academic Suspension, he or she will be attending under the continued standing of Academic Intervention with any restrictions which may have been prescribed. If, at the end of this first semester in which the student returned, the CGPA is still less than 2.0 but the SGPA is above 2.0, the student will be continued on Academic Intervention semester by semester until the CGPA is 2.0 or higher. However, at the first semester that both the CGPA and the SGPA are again below 2.0, the student will be returned to Academic Suspension status.

Academic Appeals Policy The Oakland Community College Academic Appeals Process is established to provide the student with a means of questioning employee academic behavior. Examples of expected appropriate academic behavior are set forth in the American Association of University Professors’ Code of Ethics: “As teachers, professors encourage the free pursuit of learning in their students. They hold before them the best scholarly and ethical standards of their discipline. Professors demonstrate respect for students as individuals and adhere to their proper roles as intellectual guides and counselors. Professors make every possible effort to foster honest academic conduct and to assure that their evaluations of students reflect each student’s true merit. They respect the confidential nature of the relationship between professor and student. They avoid any exploitation, harassment and/or discriminatory treatment of students. They acknowledge significant academic or scholarly assistance from them. They protect their academic freedom.” The Academic Appeals Process is available to a student who has an academic concern and wishes to seek resolution formally. All of the following proceedings will occur in a professional manner, and all efforts will be made to protect the rights of all parties involved: 1. The student will discuss the academic concern with the faculty member. An appeal of an academic concern or grade must be made within six months from the date of the incident or issuance of grade. 2. If the concern is not resolved in step 1, the student will contact the department chairperson. If there is no resolution, then the process becomes formalized. 3. The student will present a written statement specifying the alleged problem and the proposed resolution to the dean/director responsible for the academic discipline. The faculty member shall receive a copy of the written statement from the dean/director. The dean/director shall request, in writing, an explanation from the faculty member involved. If there is no resolution at this level, the student may request the formation of an Academic Appeals Board. The dean/ director will explain the next steps in the process, including the availability of an academic appeals volunteer. This volunteer will be a faculty or staff member whose function is to assist the student through the academic appeal process. 4. The dean/director will then notify the chair of the Campus Academic Senate to prepare a list of twelve randomly selected faculty members and twelve randomly selected student representatives. The Appeals Board will be composed of three faculty members and three student representatives randomly selected from these lists and will be chaired by the appropriate administrator or manager. These individuals may remain on the list of prospective Appeals Board members for a duration specified by each Campus Academic Senate. Each member of the Board is expected to use good judgment to avoid any conflict of interest with regard to their eligibility to serve on the Appeals Board. 5. The student will submit to the chair of the Appeals Board, at least seven working days prior to the convening of the Board, the following materials: A. A written statement setting forth the formal complaint, the evidence and proposed resolution, as well as justification for the hearing of the appeal. B. Names of material witnesses, if appropriate, and brief summaries of their testimonies.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Academic Appeals  •  56


The faculty member involved shall also submit pertinent written materials and the names of material witnesses, if appropriate, within two working days of the chair’s receipt of the formal complaint. These written materials will be made available to the involved faculty members and student at least 72 hours prior to the hearing date. Members of the Appeals Board will receive all materials at least 24 hours prior to the hearing. During the hearing, the student and the faculty member will each have thirty minutes to provide relevant information, to present witnesses and to entertain questions from the Board. Each may be present to hear all testimony. 6. The members of the Board shall vote by secret ballot. In the event of a tie vote, the Appeals Board chair­person will cast the deciding vote. Upon reaching a decision, the Board will consult with the faculty member. After this consultation, and within 48 hours of the Board’s decision, the student and the faculty member will be notified in writing of the Board’s decision and the faculty member’s response. If the matter is not resolved by this action, the petitioning student may contact the campus president, whose decision in writing regarding this matter shall be final. All of the above proceedings will occur in a professional manner and all efforts will be made to protect the rights of all parties involved. These proceedings do not preclude student or faculty rights to seek other redress in the matter.

Academic Amnesty / The Academic Amnesty Program is designed for those students whose GPA from a prior period is significantly lower than the GPA of work completed in more recent semesters. Amnesty is applied to a maximum of 24 semester hours of courses that have grade values below 2.00. No grades will be removed from the academic record. The courses accepted for amnesty will be annotated “AMNESTY GIVEN” on both the transcript and the academic record. These courses will then no longer be considered in the GPA computation. Credit is not earned for courses for which amnesty has been granted. Amnesty may be granted only one time and is not revocable. Amnesty cannot be awarded for any courses completed prior to the effective date of any Oakland Community College degree or certificate. Courses eligible for amnesty must have been completed at least five years prior to the submission of a petition. Students are eligible to petition for amnesty when their 16 most recently earned OCC credits are from courses that each have a grade equivalent of 2.00 or higher. A course within a semester with an “I” or a grade lower than required negates all courses in that semester from consideration in the determination of eligibility. All courses used in determining eligibility shall have been taken since, not in, the most recent semester containing a course being petitioned for amnesty. Once granted, amnesty excuses courses from GPA computation and academic record summation. In situations where the GPA or eamed credits are a factor or condition of OCC program admission or status, the GPA and record summary resulting from the granting of amnesty shall be recognized without prejudice. Students interested in this program should contact their campus counseling center for more information and materials. Eligibility for financial aid may require a GPA computation that ignores the effects of amnesty as provided herein.

Transcripts Oakland Community College transcripts are issued by the Office of the Registrar only upon the written, signed request of the student. Official transcripts to other educational institutions or employers must be mailed directly to the institution or employer.

Requesting a Transcript / Transcript requests must include the student’s name, student identification number or last four digits of the social security number and date of birth, home address, semester last attended and the complete address of the recipient. A $2 fee for each transcript requested must accompany the request. Grades for the current session will be available on transcripts approximately one week after the end of the session. Request forms are available online or on campus. Request letters or completed forms, accompanied by the appropriate transcript fee amount in a check or money order made out to OCC, should be sent to: Transcript Request Office of Enrollment Services Oakland Community College 2480 Opdyke Road Bloomfield Hills, MI 48304-2266 Transcripts may also be ordered online through the National Student Clearinghouse, twenty four hours a day, seven days a week.

Graduation Requirements

IN THIS SECTION

Procedure for Graduation Degree and Certificate Requirements General Education Requirements • Course Code Index


Procedure for Graduation The Oakland Community College graduation ceremonies cap the educational experiences of its students. The graduation ceremonies are held annually. The conferring of associate degrees and certificates highlight the ceremonies. Degrees and certificates are mailed only after the annual commencement ceremony. All candidates for graduation are encouraged to attend commencement.

Procedure for Graduation / The college catalog goes into effect at the beginning of the fall semester. The student is expected to follow a program outlined in the catalog in effect at the time of initial program declaration when being evaluated for a degree or certificate. Program requirements issued in a later catalog which are determined not to be to the detriment of the student while providing the most current degree credentials possible may be substituted for the initial effective catalog, but only one catalog can be used to provide the program requirements to be considered for graduation eligibility. After an enrollment break of three or more years, a new effective catalog is established at the time of re-enrollment if the student did not complete all academic requirements before the break.

Graduation Requirements / The requirements for graduation may be completed during any semester, but the degree or certificate can be conferred only on a duly authorized award date, the day of the annual graduation ceremonies. Individual programs may hold additional award events. To be eligible for a diploma or certificate, the student must complete all of the following requirements: 1. Complete all academic requirements of the degree or certificate program sought. 2. File a properly and completely executed Application for Graduation. Students not completing academic program requirements within one semester of the semester given on the Application for Graduation must submit a new application and fee. 3. Fulfill all financial obligations to the college. Financial Aid recipients must clear the Office of Financial Aid’s special requirements for exiting students. Multiple awards may be issued simultaneously; however, students must meet the eligibility and procedural standards for each award.

Course Substitution / In certain circumstances, students may substitute a comparable

course for a required course provided that the minimum number of credit hours for the degree or certificate is met. Students should inquire about the substitution procedure at any campus counseling office.

Extended Degree Programs / Most degree programs have a minimum of 62 semester hours. Certain program requirements are so extensive that they can only be satisfied with a higher minimum. When a program requires a minimum of 73 or more credit hours, we designate the program as an “Extended Degree” program in recognition of the efforts of students in that program.

Graduation Ceremony / Before students are allowed to participate in the graduation ceremonies, they must have an approved Application for Graduation on file in the Office of the Registrar.

Graduation with Honors / Students are eligible to graduate with honors according to the following grade point average requirements: Summa Cum Laude...................................... 3.86 - 4.00 Magna Cum Laude...................................... 3.66 - 3.85 Cum Laude.................................................... 3.50 - 3.65 Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Procedure for Graduation  •  68


Degree and Certificate Requirements Requirements for a Certificate of Achievement / A Certificate of Achievement is a validation of employability of students with specific work-related skills. Candidates for a Certificate of Achievement must have completed the specified courses identified within the academic program section of the catalog with an overall 2.0 grade point average. Candidates must have completed at least 10 OCC credits for each Certificate of Achievement earned and a minimum of 10 OCC credits for each subsequent Certificate of Achievement earned.

Requirements for a Certificate / Most OCC certificate programs require between 30 and 45 credit hours. Candidates for a certificate must complete a minimum of 15 credit hours at OCC as well as satisfy the requirements in their selected program indicated in the Degree Programs section of this catalog with a minimum cumulative 2.00 grade point average. Students completing a second or subsequent OCC certificate must have completed 15 OCC credits beyond the previous certificate.

Requirements for an Associate Degree / Eligibility for a certificate or degree rests upon the satisfaction of these requirements: 1. Complete all academic requirements of the program. Academic requirements for each certificate program are listed with the parallel degree program description in this catalog. A. Upon completion of 30 hours toward a degree (15 hours toward a certificate), students should consult with a counselor. B. Upon preparing to enter the final semester, students should again consult with a counselor to determine degree eligibility. 2. Complete a minimum of 62 credit hours for a degree with a minimum cumulative 2.00 grade point average (GPA) overall. 3. All transfer students must complete the last 15 credit hours at OCC. 4. Meet all General Education Distribution requirements. 5. Successfully complete POL 1510. 6. Successfully complete a minimum of one credit hour from the Physical Education courses listed in the General Education Distribution list. Students leaving OCC who have completed 48 or more OCC credits may apply for graduation upon submission of transfer credit to complete degree requirements. 1. If the break is longer than three years, the effective catalog for the determination of degree requirements becomes the one in effect at the point at which the transfer credit is applied. NOTE: An Application for Admission is needed before the transfer credit can be processed. (Also see Procedure for Graduation.) 2. If the break is less than three years, the effective catalog remains unchanged for determining the completion of program requirements. Candidates for a second or subsequent OCC degree or certificate must complete 15 OCC credits beyond the previous degree or certificate.

Degree Program Overview Program Integrity and Guarantees


Degree Program Overview Consistent with the concept and philosophy of a comprehensive community college, Oakland Community College offers a curriculum with widely diversified programs of study to meet the varying needs of students and to respond to existing and emerging social and economic trends. The rigors of the programs and the demands placed on the student allow comparison of these curricula to the best in the country. Should the institution feel obligated for reasons including, but not limited to, low enrollment or financial constraints, the college reserves the right to terminate any courses or programs from its offerings.

Degree Programs / Oakland Community College offers programs leading to five degrees: • • • • •

Applied Science Business Administration General Studies Liberal Arts Science

The curricula of applied sciences are designed to prepare students for immediate business, technical or semiprofessional employment. A majority of available jobs requires advanced education beyond high school, but does not necessarily require a four-year degree. The graduates of the applied sciences programs also have a sound base for continuing their formal education toward a bachelor degree. Many four-year institutions are developing options such as Bachelor of Technology degrees that facilitate the transfer of students from technical programs. For Information relative to this type of option, students should contact the counseling office on campus. Career selection seminars are available to familiarize the student with the variety of job opportunities that exist and permit the student to make an intelligent selection of a specific occupational field of study. During the seminar, students prepare a personalized plan of study to develop the necessary skills and capabilities for a chosen career. This structure permits students to solidify their interests and test their ability prior to making a final career selection and enables them to switch from one technical major to another with a minimum loss of credit and time. Applied sciences cooperative work experiences at Oakland Community College include a planned combination of related work experience in business and industry, supplemented by specially designed instructional activities. These internships are part of many occupationally oriented educational programs and provide special experiences through agreement among the employer, Oakland Community College and the student. The Associate in Business Administration Degree offers a strong foundation in areas fundamental to business studies, such as accounting, economics and mathematics. Students elect the Associate in Business Degree as a basis for further study toward a bachelor degree. Before taking business courses, students should consult a counselor since the requirements of four-year colleges and universities, both private and public, vary considerably. The Associate in Business Administration Degree meets the requirements of the MACRAO transfer agreement. The Associate in General Studies Degree is designed for students choosing to pursue widely varying areas of interest. The degree is not designed for career students, nor is it designed to meet the four-year transfer college requirements of the MACRAO agreement. Flexibility is provided so the required 62 credit hours can be met as individually appropriate. The Associate in Liberal Arts Degree emphasizes foreign languages, literature, science, mathematics, music, economics, philosophy, sociology and psychology. Students elect the Liberal Arts Degree as a basis for further study toward a bachelor degree, as a basis for employment in a variety of positions which require a broad college education and for

cultural enrichment. The Liberal Arts Degree may serve as the base for baccalaureate-level studies or as the preparation for graduate and professional degrees (e.g. law, medicine). Refer to this catalog for Liberal Arts Degree concentrations in Fine Arts/Visual, Music, Pre-International Commerce and Broadcast Arts. These Associate in Liberal Arts Degrees meet the MACRAO transfer agreement requirements. The Associate in Science program is a carefully designed collection of coursework linked to demanding require­ments found in higher levels of science education and training. The Associate in Science Degree offers a strong foundation in mathematics, physics, chemistry and the environmental sciences. Students elect the Associate in Science Degree as a basis for further study toward a bachelor degree and as preprofessional course work in medicine, dentistry and pharmacy. The Associate in Science Degree meets the MACRAO transfer agreement requirements.

Extended Degree Programs / Because this is an institutional requirement that

goes beyond the normal 62 credit hours, the college recognizes the efforts of students by designating such programs as Extended Degree Programs. Upon completion of an Extended Degree Program, students will receive documentation of the fact that they have completed an Extended Degree Program and appropriate notation will be made on their diplomas. Because of advances in technology and the increasing complexity of various occupational programs, such recognition has become appropriate.

About the Listing of Programs / The programs and courses shown are offered

as guidelines. Requirements for these programs may be met through appropriate course substitutions. Each student is urged to see a counselor to construct a personal plan of work. Because of the special nature of certain programs, such as those having national or state accreditation standards, additional rules and conditions may apply to these programs as a variance from those that are generally applied to the institution. Such programs conduct an orientation wherein these rules and conditions are explained to students. In such cases, the rules are available for review by prospective students and others by contacting the appropriate department.

Program Integrity and Guarantees Oakland Community College guarantees the integrity and quality of its programs and degrees by assuring that graduates will possess those skills and competencies attested to by their certificate or degree. The college stands behind these programs and degrees and, therefore, guarantees the following:

Transfer Options and Requirements / In the curriculum of the college are many varied programs for students who plan to continue their education at a four-year institution. These students will do well to examine carefully the professional requirements and the time required to prepare for their field of choice. It is the student’s responsibility, in fact, to be fully aware of course requirements of the college or university to which they intend to transfer. Early selection of the transfer institution facilitates planning while at Oakland Community College. In addition to studying the current catalog of the transfer institution and discussing requirements with a counselor or faculty advisor, the student should confer with an admissions counselor from his or her selected transfer institution when the university counselors visit the campuses of Oakland Community College during the fall and winter semesters. Information concerning the date and time of the visits is available through the counseling office on each campus. Application to the four-year institution should be made well in advance of the expected transfer date. At the time of application for transfer, the student should request a copy of the official transcript from the Office of the Registrar for the transfer institution. Though there are many differences in the various kinds of specialization which may enter into a college degree program, most of the specialization takes place during the third and fourth years of advanced study. The first two years, however, are preparatory years when the basic courses common to all programs and curricula are completed. The student who plans to take the first two years of work at Oakland Community College and transfer to a four-year college will generally meet transfer requirements by qualifying for an Associate in Liberal Arts, Associate in Science or an Associate in Business Administration. There are, however, different requirements at the various colleges, and the student should check the requirements of the four-year college chosen.

Transfer Guarantee / Oakland Community College will, upon recommendation from the senior institution to which the graduating student transferred, permit the student to retake any course or courses (up to a maximum of 16 credit hours) for which the student received a grade of 2.00 or better at Oakland Community College in areas deemed deficient by the senior institution. No tuition charge will be made to the student retaking such course or courses. The student will be permitted to retake such courses only one time. The college recognizes that unused skills deteriorate rapidly. The assurances offered herein are to be requested within a two-year period dating from the awarding of the OCC degree. Students eligible for such consideration will have been awarded one of the following degrees: Associate in Liberal Arts, Associate in Science or Associate in Business Administration. In addition to the completion of all degree requirements, the student must have completed English and math requirements along with his or her prerequisites (as prescribed by the college placement tests and the selected degree) within the first 30 hours of attempted credit at this institution.

Oakland Community College Catalog 2011-12 / Program Integrity and Guarantees  •  76


Career Programs / Any Oakland Community College graduates with an Associate in Applied Science Degree, who are judged by their employer as lacking in technical job skills normally expected of an entry-level employee, will be provided further skill training of up to 16 semester credit hours by Oakland Community College without charge, subject to the Career Skills Guarantee.

Career Skills Guarantee / The graduate must have an Associate in Applied Science Degree awarded at Oakland Community College, in a recognized specialty area (e.g., Computer Information Systems, Machine Tool Technology, Business Information Systems) as evidenced by the area of concentration designation on the final transcript confirming the degree. The student must also have completed, with a grade of 2.00 or better, English and math requirements and his or her prerequisites (as prescribed by the college placement test and his or her selected degree program) within the first 30 hours of attempted credit at this institution.

Employment / The employment must be full-time, and the job description must be on file and must be certified by the Oakland Community College Placement Office as directly related to the graduate’s program of study. The initial date of employment of the graduate must be within one year of awarding of the degree. The employer must certify in writing that the employee is lacking in the entry-level skills identified in writing at the time of initial employment (in job description on file) and must specify the area(s) of skills deficiency within 90 days of the graduate’s initial employment.

Skill Retraining / Skill retraining will be limited to a maximum of 16 credit hours and to the enrollment in courses regularly offered by Oakland Community College. The skill retraining must be completed in one calendar year dating from the identification of the deficiency of the employee, or in the case of a lack of prerequisites, a year from the completion of such prerequisites. The graduate must meet all prerequisites, co­requisites and other admission requirements for retraining courses. The employer, the graduate and a college counselor, with the advice of appropriate teaching faculty, will develop an educational plan, which specifies the courses constituting the retraining. Failure, withdrawal or audit of a retraining course(s) is applicable to the 16 credit hour limit. The graduate or the employer will bear the cost of books, supplies, uniforms, transportation, insurance, fees paid to other agencies and other related costs. No tuition charge will be made to the student retaking such course or courses.

Industrial Technology Associate in Applied Science Degrees Certificates

Restricted

Auburn Hills Campus

Engineering/Manufacturing and Industrial Technology Technical Apprentice / Skilled Trades (Ind.aas) (Ind.CT)

This program has been designed to meet the particular needs of business and industry. Although offered by Oakland Community College, this program is not available to the general public and, therefore, are restricted in use and application.

Oakland Community College, in cooperation with local industry, offers the required related instruction classes for apprentices from area industrial companies. Upon completion of a defined curriculum, eligible students may apply for degrees or certificates from OCC. Apprentices are trained in occupations that require a wide and diverse range of skills and knowledge. Apprentices learn all the aspects of a trade through day-by-day training on the job, experience under proper supervision combined with technical instruction. After successfully completing their apprenticeships and learning the mechanics of their trade, apprentices become journeypersons and receive a completion certificate issued by the U.S. Department of Labor. The demand for highly skilled workers is increasing more rapidly than the supply. Their skills set craftworkers apart from other workers. The careers are satisfying, rewarding and highly marketable. Apprenticeable occupations can be found in such areas as manufacturing, electronics, construction, service and metal working. A large part of the apprenticeable trades are in the manufacturing and construction industries.

Nursing Extended Degree – Associate in Applied Science (NUR.app)

Highland Lakes Campus

Health Sciences The Associate Degree Nursing (ADN) curriculum is a 72 credit-hour program that leads to an associate in applied science degree and prepares the graduates to provide direct nursing care at a beginning staff level in a variety of health care settings. Successful completion of the program requirements qualifies the students to apply to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). Satisfactory achievement on this examination qualifies the graduates for licensure as Registered Nurses (RNs). Anyone who has been convicted of a felony may not be eligible for licensure. The course of study combines general education in the humanities and the biological, behavioral and social sciences with instruction in the theory and practice of nursing. Students must first be admitted to the college and must designate nursing (NUR) as their curriculum. Registration in the nursing courses is possible only after the student is admitted to the nursing program through a selection process based on a system of priorities. Basic admission requirements include: • High school graduation or GED • One year of high school (or equivalent) chemistry, algebra and biology with an average of grade ‘C’ or better in each • A 90% or better on the Math Proficiency Test • Completion of BIO 1570 (or BIO 2710), BIO 2630 and BIO 2640 with a grade of ‘C’ or better within five years of the start of the fall nursing courses. The five-year period dates from the session during which the course was taken and closes at the first session in which the student is enrolled in the nursing program. • Attendance at a nursing information session. Requirements and procedures for admission are outlined in a Nursing program brochure, available during the nursing information sessions, and at the nursing website: www.oaklandcc.edu/nursing. All requirements must be completed by December 15 of the year preceeding intended enrollment in the nursing program. Notification of the selection decision will be sent by mail by march 15. Students must obtain a grade of ‘C’ or better in all the currently required college courses and a ‘B-’ grade or better in all nursing program courses for an Associate in Applied Science in order to be certified as eligible to write the NCLEX-RN. The policies and regulations regarding admission, progression and retention in the nursing program, as well as certification, licensure qualifications and legal limitations of license are outlined in the Nursing Student Handbook which is provided to each student enrolled in the nursing program. All these

provisions are also explained in the information sessions prior to admission to the program. In addition to the tuition, nursing students incur extra costs such as liability insurance, preadmission health examination, uniforms, supplies, travel, pins and licensure application. The ADN program is accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission, 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 500, Atlanta, GA 30326, ph: 404.975.5000, www.nlnac.org and has full approval of the Michigan Board of Nursing. Note: Conviction of a felony or misdemeanor may preclude eligibility for licensure. For more information contact the Michigan Board of Nursing (ph: 517.335.0918).
