WELCOME

Welcome to the Basic Skills Program at Wayne Community College! We are so glad that you decided to choose our institution to realize your educational success. How would you define success? Would it be how much money you have in the bank? Would it be your job title or position in an organization? Does success hinge upon “the wheels of the car you drive?” Today, let’s agree that one measure for success is the completion of the GED or Adult High School program. Think about the benefits of obtaining your High School Diploma or GED. By obtaining this level of educational success, you are opening the door to post-secondary education. Over 95 percent of two-year colleges and four-year universities accept a GED for enrollment. GED and high school graduates earn over $7,400 more a year than those without … Wow! A world of opportunity exists for those who are willing to put in the time. There are many successful people by today’s standards who got their start by receiving their GED. Comedian Dr. Bill Cosby, Olympic Gold Medalist Mary Lou Retton, television personality Michael J. Fox, singers Fantasia and Brittany Spears, and boxer Oscar de la Hoya. By enrolling, you have begun your journey towards success. You have taken the first step on this journey. Stay the course until the journey is completed. There is no limit to what you can do. The faculty and staff of the Basic Skills Program and Continuing Education Programs at Wayne Community College are here to help you achieve your goals in your journey to SUCCESS!! Renita D. Allen Dawson, Associate Vice President Continuing Education Services

We are just coming off one of our most successful years ever. More than 300 students earned their General Educational Development (GED) Diploma here at Wayne Community College! In addition to that, more than 40 students earned their Adult High School Diploma. Many of these graduates did not stop there. They are continuing with their education by taking college and Continuing Education courses. New studies are showing that a high school credential is just not enough anymore. A two-year degree can dramatically increase your chances of obtaining a job and a higher paying job, sometimes by several thousand dollars per year. We are here to assist you with earning your high school credential and with entering a program of higher education. You will have instructors, advisors, coordinators, a career and transition coach, and a director at your call, so take advantage and begin your journey of lifelong learning to make a better life for you and your family. The upcoming year will have many changes and we ask for your patience as we put new curriculum and new tests in place. The GED as we now know it will change effective January 1, 2014. What that change will be, as of this printing, we do not know. The State of North Carolina is in the midst of negotiations and decisions. As we learn about them, we will guide you through these changes with our skilled and dedicated instructors and staff. We have goals and expectations of another successful year! Sonja A. Redmon, Director of Basic Skills

NUMBER OF COURSES PER SEMESTER

It is usually recommended that students enroll in no more than four AHS courses per semester. Attendance or academic issues may prevent a student from being enrolled in more than two courses at any given time.

MAKE-UP WORK

Students are responsible for all work missed when absent from school. Immediately upon returning to school, students must make arrangements with each of their instructors to make up Page 3


all missed assignments and tests. Individual instructors will designate time limits and deadlines for their classroom assignments and tests.

INCOMPLETES

Receiving an incomplete allows students to finish remaining course work by a set deadline. The incomplete must be cleared by the deadline specified by the individual instructor. If a course is not completed by the deadline, an “F” will be recorded on the student’s transcript.

WITHDRAWALS

Withdrawals from an AHS class without notifying the instructor and/or advisor may result in a grade of “F.” Students wishing to withdraw from Online classes must first meet with their online instructor followed by a meeting with their advisor.

CBI is provided through classroom netbooks, classroom Smart Boards, and the Computer Assisted Training (CAT) Lab. An instructor or advisor may refer a student to the CAT lab to work on specific skills, areas of weakness, or take an Adult High School course. Students are required to meet with the facilitating instructor before starting CBI courseware. CBI can be accessed through the Wayne Community College Web site at http://www. waynecc.edu/continuing-ed/index.php/basicskills-current-students/.

ACADEMICS AND PROGRESSION ABILITY TO BENEFIT

This policy establishes the guidelines and standards for participants in the Basic Skills Program. All interested applicants may be admitted in the program by successfully completing one of the following pre-tests which have been approved by the United States Department of Education: Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System Life & Work or Comprehensive Adult Student Assessment System Employability Comprehensive System (CASAS). Students unable to successfully complete the pre-test will be admitted to the program at a future date once they are able to successfully complete the pre-test. Students who are admitted into the WCC Basic Skills Program must make progress and maintain regular attendance in order to remain in the program. After one year of failure to make progress, students are placed on Academic Probation and receive academic counseling. After two years of failure to make progress, students may be dropped from the program and may be referred to an appropriate agency. Page 6


Progress is defined as regular attendance and advancement as described in at least one of the following measures. • An Adult Basic Education or English as a Second Language student must successfully advance a minimum of one CASAS post-test level per semester. • A GED student must pass a minimum of one Official GED test per semester. • An Adult High School student must pass a minimum of 50 percent of courses taken per semester.

ACADEMIC PROBATION

Students who fail to progress may be placed on academic probation. Students may be placed on a six-month academic probation for: • Lack of daily progress. • Not completing a level of reading or math in a semester. • Failure of 50 percent or more of Adult High School courses. • Failure of GED level students to pass at least two Official Practice Tests.

CONDITIONS OF ACADEMIC PROBATION/SUSPENSION

Goal plans will be developed for individual academic success. These goals must be accomplished during the semester as requirements of academic probation. In some circumstances failure to obtain the goal set by the instructor during a probationary period may result in suspension for six months, unless circumstances designated by an instructor dictate otherwise. Upon returning from academic suspension, the student will be placed back on probation and given conditions and goals to meet. A course that has been failed two times cannot be taken again for a period of six months.

ATTENDANCE POLICY The Wayne Community College Basic Skills Program expects students to gain skills, competencies and an awareness of a workplace ethic which emphasizes responsibility and commitment. Regular attendance is the students’ responsibility and is important to academic achievement. The Basic Skills Program believes that when students attend class regularly they are demonstrating responsibility and commitment to their education.

CLASSROOM ATTENDANCE

Students must show up for class by the second class period in order to enter a high school class or a reading or math module. Although pre-registered, students are not officially registered until they attend the class on the first or second day. In case of absences, students are required to make up work assigned by the instructor’s deadline. Tardiness and leaving class early are disruptive for the instructor and for other students, and should be avoided. A student who regularly attends class has a much better chance of successfully completing the class. Habitual absences may place a student in jeopardy of failure and of enrolling in future classes. Page 7


ONLINE ATTENDANCE

AHS, GED, or ABE students must log 10 hours per week and have evidence of work shown on the weekly computer report. Students must also meet the campus hours set by their instructor at the beginning of the semester. Failure to meet these hours will result in being disconnected and/or a grade of “I” or “F” for a high school course. AHS students’ failure to meet the attendance hours will result in students being pulled until the following academic session and receiving a grade of “I” (incomplete). They must complete the course by the end of the returning academic session.

ATTENDANCE COMMITTEE

Instructors may refer students who miss class excessively to the Attendance Committee. This committee shall review the student’s attendance history and other academic factors and decide if there are circumstances to warrant a student continuing classroom classes. Students must provide documentation for reasons of excessive absences. These could be due to a death in the immediate family (immediate family is defined as: spouse, child, parent, sibling, grandparent or grandchild), illness resulting in student’s hospitalization, (physician’s medical documentation), or obtaining a job. Other reasons may or may not be evaluated. Only one appeal is allowed per 16week semester. The committee shall make a recommendation to the Program Director regarding the student’s attendance.

HOW TO GET YOUR ID • Take $3.00 and your temporary ID card to the cashier’s office on the first floor of the Dogwood Building, under the sign indicating SOUTH entrance. • You must purchase student insurance at this time. ($1.25) • The cashier will issue a receipt that you must present to have your picture taken. • Pictures are made in the WLC building, first floor in the Student Activities Office, Room 145. • Each semester your ID card must be updated at the time of registration. This validation will cost $1.00 and may be purchased at the Cashier’s office in the Dogwood Building. Students are required to purchase student insurance each semester for $1.25. All students must have an ID card by the beginning of the second week after registration. You will not be permitted back into your class until the ID is obtained. Your ID card should be worn on your person at all times while on campus.

PARKING

Campus parking requires a parking decal to be displayed on the left rear window of your vehicle. The $2.00 fee for a parking decal may be paid at the cashier’s office on the first floor of the Dogwood building. Then the receipt should be taken to the Student Activities Office in Wayne Learning Center, Room 145 to pick up a decal. They are valid for one year (September 1 - August 31).

ACCIDENT INSURANCE

All students are required to purchase accident insurance each semester. The insurance costs $1.25 per semester. It is purchased at the same time your student ID card and parking decals are purchased or when you update our sticker. Page 13


CAFETERIA

The cafeteria in the WLC building serves breakfast and lunch. Cafeteria hours are Monday through Thursday, 7:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. and Friday, 7:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (Summer hours may vary.)

BREAK ROOM

The Walnut Building has a student break room located at the entrance on the second floor. Students may purchase drinks and snacks during break time.

E-MAIL AND WEBADVISOR

WCC is currently changing some of the technology services it provides to students. One major change is that the college will no longer use the Campus Cruiser portal. Previously, students would login to Campus Cruiser and use WebAdvisor to register for classes, check grades, etc. Students would also check their WCC e-mail through Campus Cruiser. WCC has partnered with Google for both student and employee e-mail through Google Apps for Education. If you have ever used Gmail, you’ll find your student email very familiar. You will also have access to many of the Google Apps for Education, such as Google Drive, Google Docs, Hangout, and more. Access e-mail - To access these services, go to www.waynecc.edu and click on Student E-mail or WebAdvisor in the right-side navigation. More Information - For more information about these technology services, visit www.waynecc. edu/services.

MOODLE ACCESS

The college’s primary online course platform is Moodle. Courses may be entirely online or may be used to Web enhance face-to-face classes, called hybrid and supplemental classes. Students must access all online, hybrid and supplemental courses using Moodle via the Internet. For more information and access instructions go to moodle.waynecc.edu. (For other platforms such as PLATO, ITTS, or AZTEC, etc., access and user information will be provided by the course instructor.)

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS GENERAL QUESTIONS

1. Where do I purchase my cap and gown for graduation? ANSWER: You can purchase your cap and gown for graduation at the WCC campus bookstore, located in the WLC building, on the first floor. 2. Is transportation provided? ANSWER: No, but Gateway buses stop on campus between 5:45 a.m. and 5:45 p.m. 3. Can I go into the military with an AHS diploma or GED? ANSWER: The military accepts an AHS diploma, and the GED with restrictions. Check with your recruiter for details. 4. Can I go to college with an AHS diploma or GED? ANSWER: Community colleges accept either AHS or GED diplomas. There may be other admission criteria such as GPA minimal Compass, ACT, or SAT placement test scores. Four-year colleges may have additional admission requirements. 5. What is the difference between a GED and an AHS diploma? ANSWER: The GED diploma is awarded after a student passes a five-part test that shows high school equivalency in language arts reading, writing, science, social studies and math. An AHS diploma is awarded after a student passes a specific number of high school classes showing competency in content areas of literature, math, social studies, science, health and elective study. The time it takes to earn either diploma will depend on placement test scores, number of credits transferred, life experience and effort put into the process. The GED test will change in January, 2014.

ADULT HIGH SCHOOL

1. How long will it take to graduate? ANSWER: The requirements for each student will vary. The time it takes to finish depends upon the number of credits needed and the number of classes taken per semester. An advisor will help with scheduling. 2. What is the cost of the high school books? ANSWER: Many AHS books are furnished by the department and do not need to be purchased. If the book is not furnished it must be purchased by the student. The cost of books varies with the course that is taken. 3. Can I take all of my high school classes online? ANSWER: At this time some classes can be taken online as a hybrid with instructor assistance, but there are a few classes that are better taken in the classroom. An advisor can assist with choosing the proper venue. 4. Why do I need to take a post test and have a score of 246 before I graduate? ANSWER: Basic Skills test procedures are governed by the U.S. Department of Education. The CASAS score of 246 means that you are at a 12.9 level and ready for college. 5. Why do I need to get a CRC? ANSWER: Community college AHS programs are monitored by the local public school system and the U.S. Department of Education. Wayne County Public Schools require the CRC; therefore it is a requirement in the Wayne Community College Adult High School. Many employers in our area are now requiring the CRC as a condition of employment. Page 15


GED

1. What are the scores required for completion? ANSWER: Examinees must score a minimum of 410 points out of 800 possible points on each of the five tests. To be awarded a GED diploma, a total of 2250 total points must be achieved on the five tests. All GED information is subject to change January, 2014. 2. Does that mean I can pass all five tests and still not be awarded a GED? ANSWER: Yes. You must achieve a total of 2250 points to be awarded the diploma. 3. How many times can I retake the test if I do not score enough points? ANSWER: You can retake the tests as many times as you like, but you can only take an individual subject matter test a total of three times in each calendar year. For example, if you need to retake the reading test to get more points or because you did not pass it, you can retake it two more times before December 31 of that calendar year and then must wait until January 1 of the next calendar year to take it again. 4. What do I need to bring with me to testing? ANSWER: You must bring a valid picture ID, correct testing fee, and your testing referral card. The ID must be a current picture ID that displays your picture, name, signature, birth date and address. The ID cannot be outdated and can be a driver’s license, passport, military ID or other current valid picture ID document issued by a state, federal or foreign national authority. 5. How long do I have to complete my testing? ANSWER: Test scores are valid until the whole test set is reissued. The test wil be reissued in 2014, so you have until that time to complete all five. If you have not completed your GED by the new GED release, you will have to retake all five tests in the new more rigorous format. 6. If I have taken the tests before, how do I get the tests results? ANSWER: If you have taken the tests since 2002 in the state of NC, we can look up your scores. If you took them before 2002 but did not complete your GED at that time, your previous scores are no longer valid and you must retake all five tests. If you took the tests in another state or US territory since 2002 you must provide us with a copy of the transcript issued by that state showing the test scores and complete a new Demographics form that we will provide to you showing an NC address and we can request that the GEDTS transfer the scores to your NC testing record. Ask in Basic Skills for information about accessing your scores via the Internet. Transcripts for NC tests are obtained from the NC Community College System GED Office. 7. What do I need to do to get my diploma if I have completed my GED? ANSWER: As soon as you pass your last official test to earn your GED, the diploma and a copy of the transcript will be printed and mailed to the address in your testing record. If you need more copies for any reason, you must fill out a request for a transcript with an original signature and mail it to the NC Community College System Office. A transcript request form is on page 12. Fill out the form, sign it and mail it to the address shown on the form.

WEATHER AND OTHER CONDITIONS When inclement weather threatens, the President of the College or her designee will make any necessary decisions to cancel classes, delay classes, or totally close the College and all its operations. The decision will be announced on campus e-mail/communication systems, area radio and television stations, and the college Web site. Every attempt will be made to have the Page 16


announcement published by 6:00 a.m. on the day of the closing or delay. If the College is already operating when inclement weather forces such a decision, college-wide e-mail and text message via the WCC Emergency System will be used, as well as other campus communications and public media, to announce the decision. Decisions regarding closings and delays will be made on a day-to-day basis, taking into consideration local conditions as well as weather forecasts. Often, decisions about evening classes are made independently. In those cases, every attempt is made to announce decisions by 3:30 p.m. If the main campus is closed, all off-campus sites are closed. If classes are delayed, the announcement will state the time the College will open. In times of inclement weather, radio and television stations will normally only make announcements about delays or cancellations. Therefore, the absence of an announcement means that the College is operating on a normal schedule. Course content missed due to the College closing will be made up through outside assignments or rescheduled classes and will be communicated to students electronically or when classes resume. Make-up assignments must be equivalent to the material that would have been covered during the missed class(es) and must be approved by the appropriate instructional supervisor.

REFUND POLICY FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION SERVICES COURSES The refund policy for Continuing Education Services courses, as established by the N.C. General Assembly, allows a 75 percent refund, after the respective class begins, upon the request of the student if the student officially withdraws from the class prior to or on the 10 percent point of the scheduled hours of the class. A 100 percent refund, shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the first day of class of the academic semester or term as noted in the college calendar. Also, a student is eligible for a 100 percent refund if the class, in which the student is officially registered is cancelled due to the insufficient enrollment. There are no refunds for self-supporting classes. Under this policy, the college shall notify the student of the right to receive a refund at the time of official withdrawal.

OCCUPATIONAL EXTENSION COURSE REPETITION POLICY A special provision of North Carolina’s General Statutes concerning class repetition became effective September 1993. Under that provision, a student who takes an occupational class more than twice is required to pay a fee to be determined using the computation below. For example, the first and second time a student takes an occupational extension class, the fee will be based on the sliding fee scales provided in our course schedule. The third and subsequent times will be based on the number of hours that the class meets multiplied by the fee set by the North Carolina General Assembly. (See course schedule for applicable fee.) Charges are subject to change based on budget. North Carolina senior citizens (65 or older), who are eligible to take classes free of charge, will also be required to pay for classes they take more than twice. Students are primarily responsible for monitoring class repetitions; however, the colleges shall review records and charge students full cost for classes taken more than twice. Students are exempt from this policy if class repetition is required for certification, recertification, or licensure.

WAYNE COMMUNITY COLLEGE INFORMATION RELATING TO NORTH CAROLINA RESIDENCE FOR TUITION PURPOSES North Carolina law (G.S. 116-143.1) requires that “To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, a person must have established legal residence (domicile) in North Carolina and maintained that legal residence for at least 12 months immediately prior to his or her classification as a resident for tuition purposes.” The information requested on this form must be supplied by every applicant for admission to WCC. This information is to be used only in connection with determination of your residence status for tuition purposes. The law requires that every student admitted to the college be classified for the term admitted as either a resident or non-resident for tuition purposes, prior to enrollment. To be classified a resident for tuition purposes, you must furnish such evidence as the college may require to enable it to make such classification. Failure to provide all information requested will result in classification as a non-resident for tuition purposes. Full Name
