History of Ohlone College Established in 1965, Ohlone College serves the cities of Fremont, Newark and Union City and is located in the southeast region of the San Francisco Bay Area. Ohlone College is a single college with two campuses plus an extensive e-campus. The Fremont campus is located on Mission Boulevard off Highway 680 on a beautiful 534-acre hillside site just south of the historic Mission San Jose. The Newark campus is located on Cherry Street west of Highway 880 on a 31-acre site near the San Francisco Bay. The 2012-2013 academic year marked the College’s 46th anniversary of serving the Tri-Cities community with higher education opportunities. Officially named Ohlone College on June 18, 1967, the institution honors indigenous people who inhabited the Fremont and Newark area. Long before the local people were named Costanoans by the Spanish priests, they were known by a neighboring Miwuk tribe as the Ohlone or “People of the West.” Distinguished by peaceful pursuits, especially in agriculture, the Ohlone held profound reverence for the earth, believing it was theirs for living and not for the taking. They aided the Franciscan Fathers in building the Mission San Jose de Guadalupe in the late 18th century and prospered until 1806-1833 when a series of epidemics virtually destroyed the tribe. Some descendants, however, still reside in the Fremont-Newark area. Ohlone College is a member of the Coast Conference of the California Association of Community Colleges (CCCAA). This conference competes against colleges that are located throughout the Greater Bay Area, including regions such as Santa Cruz, Gilroy, Monterey, San Jose, and San Francisco. Ohlone College’s athletic teams include men’s/women’s soccer, men’s/women’s water polo, women’s volleyball, men’s/women’s basketball, men’s baseball, women’s softball and men’s and women’s swimming/diving.

STUDENT-ATHLETE

Code of Conduct

Student-athletes at Ohlone College are expected to represent themselves, their team and the College with honesty, integrity, and character whether academically, athletically or socially. Participation on an intercollegiate team is a privilege, not a right, and should be treated as such. Participation has many benefits and brings with it a responsibility to be positive and effective members of the team, department, college and the broader community. Renegade Athletics, along with the student-athletes who represent our intercollegiate programs, are a window to the College. Student-athletes often are in the spotlight and, fair or not, their behavior is subject to scrutiny by their peers, members of the campus, local and statewide communities, and by the media. The actions of one student-athlete may result in a generalization to all student-athletes and reflects on the individual, team, department and College, whether positively or negatively. It is expected that all student-athletes will abide by team, department and College policies and procedures. Student-athletes who do not conform to this code may be subject to consequences for their actions that may include: a warning, suspension or dismissal from the team, or dismissal from the College. In addition to all College policies, studentathletes are responsible for following the standards of the Coast Conference, the California Community College Athletic Association, and all local, state and federal laws.

Student-athletes should adhere to the following rules and standards of the Code of Conduct:

Team

Be on time for everything. Take care of equipment and facilities. Exhibit sportsmanship at all times. Follow all team rules.

On Campus

Take your academics seriously. Always do your best in the classroom. Plagiarism is not acceptable and will not be tolerated. Treat instructors, staff, and classmates with respect and courtesy. Arrive to classes on time and do not leave early. Be prepared for all classes at all times. Student-athletes should not all sit together in class. Sit in the front, be attentive, take notes, and engage in class dialogue. Notify your instructor in advance, when competition or travel requires you to miss class. Discuss with your instructors, prior to competition or travel, as to how you will complete all missed assignments. You are responsible for making up all missed class time and assignments.

2

On and Off Campus

Dress Code

Student-athletes may be suspended from participation or dismissed from the team for any of the following:

As a member of the Renegade Athletic Department, please keep in mind that not only do you represent yourself and your family, but you also represent your team, department, and the College. Head coaches may set specific dress code standards when traveling as a team. Coaches may also specify what constitutes appropriate dress while representing the institution at other times. At no time shall you wear apparel that represents another community college.

Arrest for any crime Harassment directed toward any person or group Hazing Lewd or obscene behavior Use/possession of chewing tobacco or other tobacco products Possession of illegal drugs and/or alcohol, including related paraphernalia Fighting Theft or burglary Gambling or bribery Any conduct that is detrimental to Ohlone College or Renegade Athletics

Violations of the Code of Conduct can lead to suspension or dismissal from athletic competition as well as further disciplinary action from the College. First Offense May result in suspension from the next contest or dismissal from the team or suspension or expulsion, depending upon the severity of the misconduct and surrounding circumstances. Second Offense May result in suspension from multiple team contests or dismissal from the team, or more severe discipline, depending on the severity of the misconduct and other circumstances. Subsequent Offense Dismissal from the team, and potential other more severe discipline.

CCCAA & Ohlone Community College Eligibility Student-athletes must comply with the following California Community College Athletic Association (CCCAA) Constitution and Bylaws to be eligible to compete in his/her sport: A student-athlete must be continuously and actively enrolled and attending class in a minimum of 12 units at Ohlone College during their season of competition. Note: 60 units are needed to graduate. See your athletics counselor to see if this is possible for you to do in four semesters. At least 9 units of the 12 units required for participation must be taken in courses counting toward graduation, remedial, transfer, and/or certification as defined by the college catalog, and consistent with the athlete’s Student Education Plan (SEP). If at any time an athlete drops below 12 units during competition, he/she becomes ineligible to compete. All student-athletes must be enrolled in their specific sport’s ATHL/PE course(s) (if it is offered). A student-athlete must pass 24 units or more with at least a 2.0 GPA prior to the start of his/her second season of competition. If they don’t meet above requirements, they will be ineligible to compete. Men and Women’s Basketball season spans 2 semesters and all basketball studentathletes must be continuously enrolled in 12 units during the entire 2 semesters. If a student-athlete finishes the fall semester with less than 12 units, they will not be eligible to play until the start of their second semester. They will also need to be registered in at least 12 units during their second semester (9 of which applies to SEP). All student-athletes must have a Student Education Plan (SEP) on file with both the Counseling and Athletics departments. For those student-athletes whose first competition in any sport occurs in the fall, they are due October 15th. And for those student-athletes first competing in the spring, they are due March 1st. If the SEP is not completed by the date mentioned, he/she becomes ineligible until this is completed. This plan will set a timeline of the courses to be taken and during which semester based on the educational needs of the student-athlete. All educational plans are individually tailored to each student-athlete based on their learning ability, needs and goals. Mike De Unamuno is the athletics counselor; appointments can be made with him at the Fremont Ohlone Counseling Department Window in Building 7, 3rd Floor.

Ohlone College Athletics Academic Success

Athletic Counseling

Athletic Counseling provides guidance that meets the unique needs of the student-athlete. As you start your academic and athletic collegiate career at Ohlone College, you will quickly realize the demanding commitments required of a student-athlete. Do yourself a big favor and rely on your athletic counselor to make your time at Ohlone a lot easier. Your athletics counselor will assist in your success at Ohlone College by providing you with the following services:

1. Student Education Plan (SEP): Your athletics counselor will help you plan your coursework through an individually tailored SEP. A SEP is a semester by semester class schedule that includes all courses necessary to achieve your academic goals. The SEP will also meet all the academic requirements imposed by the CCCAA, NCAA and/or NAIA. A blank copy of the SEP and a sample student-athlete SEP can be found on Appendix II (page 35) and Appendix III (page 36-37).

2. Personal Development (PD) Courses: PD courses help students adjust to college, choose a major/career, transfer to a university, and improve study or test-taking skills. New students who take college success classes are MORE successful in college than those who do not. The average GPA for students who took study skills classes in Spring 2009 was 2.85 compared to the average of students not enrolled in PD which was 2.21.

The following PD courses are specifically geared towards student-athletes: PD-241 (2 units) College Success for Athletes: (Accepted for credit at Ohlone AA/AS & CSU) Co-taught by Coach Peterson & Athletics Counselor Mike De Unamuno during the Fall semester only. This course is designed for new student-athletes to assist with the adjustment to college level academics and athletics. This course also promotes realistic expectations of college while understanding what is necessary to succeed as an intercollegiate athlete. PD-105 (3 units) College Success: (Accepted for credit at Ohlone AA/AS, CSU & UC) Taught by Athletic Counselors Mike De Unamuno during the Spring semester only. The goal of this course is to assist students in developing personal and academic skills needed to be successful in college and life. This course integrates personal growth, learning techniques, academic and career success, problem solving, and critical and creative thinking.

3. 30 Minute Appointment: Ohlone student-athletes are designated a counselor whose focus is to assist them in succeeding in

college. In order to meet with your athletic counselor for a full 30 minute appointment, you must schedule an appointment at the Ohlone College Counseling Department window in Building 7, 3rd Floor, or by emailing Mike De Unamuno at mdeunamuno@ohlone.edu. Student Education Plans (SEP) can only be completed by scheduling a 30 minute appointment.

4. 10 Minute Drop-in Counseling: Student-athletes do not need to have a scheduled appointment to meet with their athletic

counselor during drop-in counseling hours. However, due to time constraints, only brief questions can be presented during drop-in counseling. Drop-in times vary each semester. Check with your athletics counselor for exact times and days.

5. Priority Registration Workshops: Each registration period student-athletes are one of the few select groups at Ohlone

College that are allowed priority registration. During the first day of priority registration your athletics counselor offers a priority registration workshop. At this workshop, student-athletes are assisted by their athletic counselors and their individual SEP in registering for their following semester’s courses.

6. Transfer & Graduation: To make the process of applying for transfer and graduation easier, be sure to schedule a 30 minute appointment with your athletics counselor.

7. Athletic Academic & Progress Probation Workshop: This is a required workshop for student-athletes who are academically struggling at Ohlone College. This workshop is offered once a semester and its purpose is to help academically underperforming student-athletes better understand their academic record and get back on track.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Ohlone College Student-Athlete Academic Check ListIn order for a smooth transition in and out of Ohlone College, refer to and complete the Student-Athlete Academic Check List (on Appendix I, page 34) with your athletics counselor during your 30 minute counseling appointments.

Tips for Academic Success A Word About Personal Responsibility Your athletics counselor, coaches, athletic director and other resource people at Ohlone College can only do so much to make your academic career successful. It is completely up to you whether or not you will become a college graduate or a college drop out. Countless studies have shown that a student’s first year in college is a huge indicator of whether or not he/she will graduate from college. In other words, your first year at Ohlone College will be one of the most critical times in your life! It’s scary to think about it but the reality is that choices and actions you will make during your first two semesters at Ohlone College can affect the outcome of the rest of your life. Now that I’ve got your attention, let’s see what you can do to make your time at Ohlone a success. Abide by Ohlone College’s Code of Conduct (found on page 2). Give as much effort (or more) to your academics as you do to your athletics. Meet individually with your athletics counselor at least two times per semester. You must attend all classes on a regular basis (100% of the time). Study and make every attempt to earn a C grade or better in each class. Consult with your athletic counselor before dropping a class. Get to know your instructors and go to their office hours for assistance. Write down your goals. Make a conscious effort towards your stated goals every day. Be aware of and take advantage of all the student services at Ohlone College (see the Student Success Resource Guide on page 13 ).

More Tips for Academic Success

Online Courses

Study Hall

It should be noted that the traditional in-class courses have a higher success rate than the online courses. Both online and traditional classroom courses contain the same number of hours of instruction and assignments. One of the most challenging things about an online course is keeping up with the lessons and assignments without being instructed to do so by a professor. Once you have fallen behind, it’s very difficult to get back on track. If a student is not used to being very disciplined and organized, they should first take a hybrid (half online & half in-class) course before attempting a 100% online course.

All teams have required study hall times. Use this time wisely! Study hall is a great opportunity to form study groups with your teammates who are also classmates. Check with your coach to find out when and where your study hall meets.

(See more useful tips on next page)

In-Class Tips 1. Be in class on time and ready to learn. 2. Do not sit with friends or other teammates that will distract you or that you might distract. 3. Sit in the front of the class. Being closer to the instructor reduces the temptation to sleep or day dream during class time. 4. Ask your coach for a practice and game schedule and share that schedule with all of your instructors. 5. Be organized. Keep all materials for each class separated. 6. Take notes in class that YOU understand. Don’t only write down what the instructor writes on the board. Using your own language and symbols helps in understanding and remembering the discussion. 7. Ask questions. If something is unclear, ask the instructor either during or after class. 8. Turn your phone off when you enter the classroom and do not touch it until class is over! 9. Never have ear phones on in class, even if you are not listening to music.

Study Tips 1. Know how long you can study for a period of time. Take short breaks every 20 minutes. 2. Remove all distractions from your study space. Distractions such as the television and friends can be tempting to pay attention to rather than study. 3. Establish a study group. Learning is more enjoyable with others. 4. Get a tutor for subjects that are difficult. 5. Use the Tutoring Center at either campus. 6. Review all handouts. These are usually extra materials that may or may not be covered in the text book and should have extra attention paid to them 7. Review, reread and rewrite notes to help retain information. 8. Stay up to date. Stay on track with what chapters are to be read by each date. 9. Reward yourself with a “brain break.” Take 15 minutes off from studying and do something you enjoy or have a snack, go for a quick walk, talk to a friend, etc.

Test Preparation Tips 1. Begin to study early. Avoid the late night studying sessions the night before. 2. Know what to study. Ask the instructor if the test is on a specific chapter or what particular materials will be covered. 3. Use study materials such as flash cards or cheat sheets to help review. 4. The day of the exam, relax and slowly review notes. 5. As previously stated, establish a study group.....4-5 heads are better than one!

Class Registration Tips 1. Ask your coach for a practice and game schedule. Avoid scheduling classes on days or at times when the team may have to travel to avoid missing classes. 2. Stick to your Student Education Plan (SEP) when registering for classes 3. When registering for courses, be sensitive to your academic load as it relates to practice and your hours committed to employment or other activities. 4. Be realistic about your waking hours. If you have difficulty waking up early, avoid early morning classes. 5. Maintain active enrollment in 12 or more units during season of competition. At least 9 units must apply to your SEP. 6. Make sure you gather information from other students (or on www.ratemyprofessor.com) on the professors you are thinking of taking a class from. 7. For help scheduling your class time and dates, use the class schedule template on Appendix IV (page 38).

Types of Financial Aid

LOANS

(continued)

Federal Subsidized Loans Each academic school year, a community college student may borrow up to $2,625 or $3,500 (depending on the number of units completed). This is a subsidized loan, which means that while a student is enrolled at least part-time, the federal government will pay the interest on the loan.

A loan is funding given to students which does get paid back to the lender depending on the terms of the loan. Some loans will include an interest rate.

Federal Unsubsidized Loans An unsubsidized loan is not need based and interest accrues while the student is in school.The amount a student can borrow depends upon the need determined on the FAFSA, your dependency status, and the number of units you have completed.

Federal Direct Parent PLUS Loans FSEOG awards range from $100 to $4,000 per year. FSEOG is available for as long as it takes to complete the first undergraduate degree.

Federal Work-Study Program (FWS) Parents of dependent undergraduate students may borrow from the Direct PLUS loan program.
