FROM THE PRESIDENT . . . welcome to Brevard Community College Please accept my personal thanks for your interest in Brevard Community College – a college with a 50-year legacy of offering lifelong learning for generations of Central Florida residents. Anyone seeking a traditional college education, a career change, or training opportunities to enhance workforce skills, can count on BCC.

James A. Drake, Ph.D. President

All BCC students enjoy the benefits of an articulation agreement with the state university system, ensuring the transferability of credits to Florida public universities, as well as similar agreements with numerous private institutions. For example, BCC has a well-established partnership known as “Direct-Connect” which provides a seamless transition to the University of Central Florida. Similarly, the college has a new “Tech Track” program with the nearby Florida Institute of Technology in Melbourne. Studies show that community college transfer students do as well as, and often better than, students who begin their studies at four year institutions.

The BCC Workforce Training and Development programs offer college credit and industry certifications designed especially for transitioning aerospace workers and the unemployed to provide access to new skills, new training advancement opportunities, and ultimately new jobs. Our many technical and vocational programs permit graduates to enter the workforce, or to retrain for the ever changing requirements of business and high-tech industry. We take great pride in the consistently high level of job placements for our graduates. If your work or family responsibilities will not permit you to attend classes on our brick-and-mortar campuses, we encourage you to consider eBrevard, our online program which provides students with the opportunity to earn their entire Associate of Arts and some Associate of Science degrees through online courses. For a half century, lifelong learning has been the “business” of Brevard Community College.

Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes

In-State Residency

A student is considered to be a resident for tuition purposes when he/she (or, if a dependent, his parent(s) or legal guardian) has been a permanent resident of the state of Florida for at least 12 consecutive months preceding enrollment at BCC. Legal papers proving guardianship and other documentation must accompany the application, when applicable. Final residency determination will be based on state guidelines and will be determined by Collegewide Residency Committee.

Initial Classification

A student’s residency classification is determined at the time of admission to BCC, in accordance with Florida Statute 1009.21. A minimum of two pieces of acceptable documentation must be submitted with a completed Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes Affidavit. The affidavit and all documentary evidence must be submitted by the last day of Add/Drop for the term in which the student is seeking in-state tuition.

Exceptions

The Guidelines on Florida Residency for Tuition Purposes document can be found on the web at www.facts.org.

Students may be eligible for a waiver of out-of-state tuition if they qualify for one of the following exceptions. (Documentation appropriate to the particular exception will be required.) Other exceptions exist; these are the most common. • A qualified beneficiary under the terms of the Florida PrePaid Postsecondary Expense Program per s.1009.988(2) • A dependent person who has resided for five (5) years with an adult relative other than a parent or legal guardian and relative has maintained legal residency in Florida for at least the past 12 consecutive months • A Florida public college/university declared me a resident for tuition purposes • Previously enrolled at a Florida public institution and classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes. I abandoned my Florida domicile less than 12 consecutive months ago, and I am now re-establishing Florida legal residence • Active duty members of the Armed Services of the United States residing or stationed in Florida (and spouse/dependent children); active duty members of the Florida National Guard (and spouse/dependent children) who qualify under 250.10(7) and (8); or military personnel not stationed in Florida whose home of record or state of legal residence certificate, DD Form 2058, is Florida and spouse/dependent children • Full-time instructional and administrative personnel employed by the state public schools and institutions of higher education and spouse/dependent children • Full-time employees of state agencies or political subdivisions of the state when the student fees are paid by the state agency or political subdivision for the purpose of job-related law enforcement or corrections training • Full-time student participating in an international linkage institute (S.288.8175,FS) • Part of the Latin American/Caribbean scholarship program

Reclassification

Students may petition to reclassify their status after having their legal domicile in the state of Florida for 12 months; however, any residency classification changes would be in effect for the next term. The student must submit an Appeal for Residency Reclassification along with a minimum of three current documentary evidence, one of which must be from the First Tier, to the Campus Admissions and Records Office by the last day of Add/Drop for the term in which reclassification is requested. The Collegewide Residency Committee will render the final decision.

Residency for Tuition Purposes

Statute allows U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents to be classified as a Florida resident for tuition purposes if the applicant or the dependent applicant’s parent/legal guardian has been a legal resident of the State for at least 12 consecutive months preceding the first day of classes of the term for which Florida residency is sought.

Physical Presence vs. Legal Residence

It is important to understand that living or attending school in Florida is not tantamount to establishing a legal residence for tuition purposes. Maintaining a legal residence in Florida requires substantial physical presence as a condition. Eligibility depends on the extent to which the Florida resident maintains Florida legal ties and does not establish ties with another state. Statute provides clarification on or protections for certain family situations as related to legal residency. This information is available in the campus Admissions and Records Office and on the website.

Requisite Intent

As provided by F.S., Section 1009.21(2)(a)2, it is imperative that the required 12-month qualifying period be for the purpose of maintaining a bonafide domicile rather than for the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode incident to enrollment in an institution of higher education. The student who comes to Florida to enroll full-time in a Florida higher education institution as an out-of-state resident and continuously enrolls in a Florida institution will not normally meet the Florida residency requirement for in-state tuition regardless of the length of time enrolled.

Students are responsible for requesting the transcripts from their previous institutions and paying all associated fees Official transcripts must be sent in a sealed envelope directly to BCC If student does not have a college degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, he/she must submit high school and college transcripts from all institutions attended If student has a college degree from a regionally accredited U.S. institution, a transcript from the institution that granted the degree is the only transcript required All transcripts from postsecondary institutions outside the United States must have a course-by-course commercial evaluation completed by an approved agency. Agency information is available in the International Student Office. Non-degree seeking students are required to have a standard high school diploma or high school equivalency (GED). Non-degree seeking students are not required to submit official transcripts unless they are required for proof of successful prerequisite course completion or student is changing to a degree-seeking status. Proof of high school graduation required (copy of diploma or unofficial transcript) Transient students (students enrolled in another college who wish to take courses at BCC for one term, and then transfer those credits back to their home institution) are not required to submit official transcripts. However, students must provide a transient form or letter of good standing approving transient status and listing courses in which they are eligible to enroll. Transient forms can be processed online through www.FACTS.org for many Florida institutions. If student is unable to obtain a transcript because the school has closed, contact the state’s Department of Education and request a letter verifying that the school closed.

Collection of Social Security Numbers Florida Statute 119.071(5)(a) authorizes the collection, usage and release of your social security number by BCC. BCC collects and uses your SSN only for the purpose of performing College duties and responsibilities. In an effort to protect your identity, BCC will secure your SSN from unauthorized access, and will never release your SSN to unauthorized parties. BCC will assign you a unique student/employee identification number. This unique ID number is used for most associated educational purposes at BCC. Federal legislation relating to the Hope Tax Credit (Federal Register, June 16, 2000) requires that all postsecondary institutions report student social security numbers to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS). This IRS requirement makes it necessary for colleges to collect the Social Security Number (SSN) of every student. A student may refuse to disclose his or her SSN to the college, but the IRS is then authorized to fine the student in the amount of $50. All SSN's are protected by federal regulations (FERPA) and are never released to unauthorized parties. Refusal to disclose the SSN also may affect the student’s ability to receive financial aid and transfer coursework to and from other institutions. BCC protects student’s personal information in accordance with federal regulations.

Transfer Credit for International Coursework

Students who have completed college level coursework in other countries are not required to submit transcripts. However, to have the transcript considered for transfer or placement purposes, the student is responsible for securing the evaluation services of a recognized agency. Information may be obtained from the Center for English Language Studies.

Limited Access Program Placement Tests

College Preparatory/Developmental Courses

Students whose placement test scores identify them as needing additional preparation shall enroll in college preparatory courses to develop college-entry skills. A student who is required to complete a college preparatory course must successfully complete the required college-preparatory studies by the time the student has accumulated 12 hours of lower division college credit degree coursework. However, a student may continue enrollment in degree-earning coursework provided the student maintains enrollment in college preparatory coursework for each subsequent semester until college-preparatory coursework requirements are completed, and the student demonstrates satisfactory performance in degree-earning coursework (F. S. 1008.30).

Certain limited access programs require additional tests for admission. These include:

Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) scores may be

included in admissions requirements of some Health Sciences programs. Contact Health Sciences for specific program requirements, application deadlines, testing schedules and fee information.

Basic Abilities Tests (BAT): Some law enforcement and criminal justice programs require successful completion of a Basic Abilities Test (BAT) prior to admission into the program. The state of Florida has approved two Basic Abilities Tests: the Criminal Justice Basic Abilities Test (CJ-BAT) and the Florida Basic Abilities Test (F-BAT). Contact the Criminal Justice Department for specific program test requirements, testing schedules and fee information.

Preparatory/developmental courses are designed to assist students in acquiring the skills necessary for succeeding in college level courses. While the courses do not carry credit toward graduation, students must have regular attendance, passing grades and must pass a state-mandated exit exam to complete the preparatory coursework and become eligible to enroll in college credit courses.

Additional Testing Services

In addition to placement testing, various testing programs are administered on each campus. Some national and state exams for students such as, secure proctor testing services for distance learning students, CLEP, and DSST exams are provided. Application and information for these and other tests are available in the Testing Center on each campus. Fees are assessed for each service. A list of fees is available in the Testing Center and at the Schedule of Fees located on the BCC website.

Some forms of financial aid, including Bright Futures Scholarships, do not cover tuition for preparatory courses. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office. Preparatory/developmental courses are graded with “S” for satisfactory; “U” for unsatisfactory; “N” for progressed but did not achieve course objectives. These grades are not calculated into the grade point average. When grades of “U” or “N” are earned, students must re-register for the course. Students can attempt preparatory courses up to three times. The third attempt will be subject to the full cost of instruction. Preparatory courses may not be audited.

Note: Prior to any test administration, all test candidates must present a primary ID, which is a currently valid government issued identification card that includes a photo and signature. Acceptable forms of the Primary ID are: Military ID, Driver’s License, or State Department of Motor Vehicles issued ID. Although most test publishers do not consider a student ID as government issued, we will accept your BCC student ID as a Primary ID when testing at a BCC testing site. Some tests, such as CLEP, require presentation of an additional second ID that must have either a photo or a signature.

Alternative Methods of Preparatory Instruction

Students can seek methods other than the College’s preparatory courses for improvement of skills. Alternative methods of instruction include, but are not limited to, Brevard County School Board, private providers, and online instruction. Once instruction is complete, the student should present a certificate of completion to a campus testing specialist for a referral to retest on the appropriate placement subtest.

Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE)

Student Orientation

 Advise Register for an orientation session Review your placement scores with an advisor

Orientation is mandatory for all first time in college students, transfer students, re-admit students and recommended for all students. It is an introduction to life at BCC. Participation in its many activities will help students get off to a good start. BCC encourages students to engage fully in every facet of the college, and the orientation helps to ensure success by providing the following:

Students enrolling in state-designated Postsecondary Adult Vocational Certificate (PSAV) programs are required to submit scores, no more than two years old, from the Test of Adult Basic Education (TABE). Students must complete the TABE within six weeks of the beginning of their first term of classes. Students who have not completed the TABE by the end of the first semester will not be allowed to enroll in any program courses until the TABE is completed. Students who do not meet the required TABE score in any area can begin coursework in the certificate program, but must complete remediation of skills prior to graduation from the program. Remediation is available in all learning labs through the Vocational Preparatory Instruction (VPI) program.

Enrollment Certification

Brevard Community College has authorized the National Student Clearinghouse to provide enrollment and degree verifications. Current term enrollment will not be certified until after the Add/Drop period. Courses that are dropped, withdrawn, audited or non-credit classes do not count in credit hours toward enrollment verification.

Admissions and Registration Terminology Auditing a Class

Students who have been admitted to BCC and who wish to take courses without receiving credit may request to audit a course. The following guidelines apply: • Student must be a high school graduate. • Students must make the choice to audit when they register for the class, and must submit a Request to Audit form to the Admissions and Records Office. • Student may change from audit to credit or credit to audit only during the Add/Drop period. • Fees for audited courses are the same as graded courses. • Students should confirm their audit status with the instructor at the first class meeting. • Courses taken on an audit basis will not be counted when calculating eligibility for Veterans benefits, financial assistance or certification of enrollment by outside agencies. • Students auditing classes must meet all course prerequisites including appropriate test scores. • Students may not audit college preparatory courses (SBE Rule 6A-14.0301). Other limited access courses also may not be available for audit. • Student will receive a grade of “AU’’ for audited courses. Audit courses will not affect the grade point average or academic standing and will not award credits. • Audited courses count as “attempts’’ toward full cost tuition. • Class tests or examinations are not required of the student auditing a course. However, class attendance is expected.

Students may obtain an enrollment certificate through Titan Web Services on myBCC, or they must submit a request in writing to the Admissions and Records Office. The College certifies student enrollment according to the following: FT (full time) 12 credit hours QT (3/4 time) 9 credit hours HT (half time) 6 credit hours LT (less than half time) under 6 credit hours

Change to Student Records

Students may request a change to their record in writing or by presenting photo identification if requesting the change in person. Typical changes include name, address, telephone number, social security number and program code (major). Most changes require the student to present appropriate documentation. Students who receive financial aid should check with that office prior to changing their major. Address and phone changes can be made online or in person, and should be verified and updated each term.

Titan Email

The official means of communication for college business for CURRENTLY REGISTERED students is Titan Email. This includes communication from instructors regarding class work, accounting and financial aid. Students can access their email through myBCC.

ACADEMIC POLICIES Grading Policies

BCC uses a 4.00 grading scale. Students are awarded letter grades for coursework attempted. Used in GPA computation are: A Excellent B Good C Satisfactory D * Poor F Failure

4 points 3 points 2 points 1 point 0 points

• •

* A “D” grade earned in English, math, humanities, or social or behavioral science course work will not satisfy general education requirements for the A.A. and some A.S. degree programs and will be counted only as elective credit.

• •

Not used in GPA computation are: AU .............................................................................. Audit I ......................................................................... Incomplete N ............................. Progressed but did not achieve course objectives; student must re-enroll S.......................................................................Satisfactory U .................................................................. Unsatisfactory W.......................................................................Withdrawal W6......................... Withdrawal, called to active military duty W7.................................. Withdrawn due to non-attendance

• •

The following letter grades have special requirements: AU: Awarded to a student who enrolls in a credit class for enrichment but not for credit and requests the audit status in writing. Student must pay the regular fees and meet appropriate course prerequisites. No credit is earned. To change enrollment from credit to audit or audit to credit, a student must contact the Admissions and Records Office before the established deadline. Vocational and college preparatory courses may not be audited.

N: “N” grades are awarded only in college preparatory courses when student has made satisfactory progression in work attempted but has not achieved all course objectives. To pass the class, re-enrollment is required. W: Assigned if a student officially withdraws by the established deadline in the Schedule of Classes or the college administratively withdraws the student for reasons such as non-compliance of rules or extenuating circ*mstances. See Maximum Attempts Per Course and Withdrawal.

Note: Financial Aid and Veteran students will not receive benefits for audit classes. I:

At the instructor’s discretion, a grade of “I – Incomplete” may be given when a student is unable to complete the required coursework because of clearly documented extenuating circ*mstances; however, the student must have demonstrated through successful completion of at least 75% of the coursework that they have a reasonable chance of making a passing grade.

W6: Assigned to students who are called to active military duty. Student must submit a copy of his/her orders to the Associate Provost. The student and Associate Provost will determine whether a tuition refund or Incomplete is appropriate. A “W6” is non-punitive and does not count in course attempts. W7: Assigned to students who are reported by the instructor as not attending a course. The “W7” will appear as a final grade and will count in course attempts.

Instructors who award a grade of “I” must submit an Incomplete Grade Form (IGF) and provide a copy of the form to the student and department chair. The instructor must document on the IGF the work already completed during the term, as well as outstanding requirements, files the IGF with the department chair, and provides a copy to the student. • •

Students must make arrangements with the instructor to complete coursework for the removal of the “I”. The coursework must be completed prior to the last class day in the next major term immediately following the initial course attempt. To process the grade change, the instructor will submit a Grade Change Form through appropriate channels prior to the last class day of the next major term (spring and fall). The “I” grade will convert to an “F” on the permanent record if not removed by the last class day of the next major term (summer term is excluded.) Instructors may not submit a Grade Change Form to change the converted “F” for work submitted after the deadline for the completion of coursework. Students may not re-enroll in a course in which they have an outstanding grade of “I”. Once the “I” has changed to an “F,” students MUST re-enroll in the course and use the grade forgiveness procedure. An “I” received in the term of graduation will be calculated as an “F” for purposes of computing the student’s GPA for graduation if the course is not required for graduation. If the course is required for graduation, students who receive an “I” grade in the term they apply to graduate have three weeks from the beginning of the next term to have the grade changed. After that time, students must reapply for graduation and pay the re-application fee in the term they complete the work.

Grade Point Average (GPA) Computation

A student may determine the grade points for each course by multiplying the number of quality points the grade is worth times the number of credit hours the course carries. For example, a “B” in a three (3) credit course is worth nine (9) points and an “A” in the same course carries twelve (12) points.

A grade of “I” cannot be assigned to a course if the student drops or withdraws from the course. A grade of “I” does not satisfy the prerequisite need of subsequent courses.

Academic Policies

25

Grade Changes

The grade point computation is found by adding the total point values for all courses and dividing by the total number of credit hours attempted during the same period of time. Quality Points: A=4

B=3

C=2

D=1

All grade changes must be initiated by the instructor and approved by the appropriate department chair and campus provost. If the instructor is no longer a member of the faculty, the department chair may initiate the grade change. Changes must be submitted on a Grade Change Form. • Grade changes are processed on the campus where the course was taken. • An instructor’s change of grade for a course taught in the fall term should be completed before the end of the following spring term. Any grade changes for classes taught in the spring term or any of the summer sessions should be completed before the end of the following fall term. • Grade changes or alterations to the student’s academic record cannot be made after a student has graduated. • Students who do not agree with an instructor’s final grade decision must file an academic appeal through the Associate Provost’s office. – Preliminary Action: If a student thinks that he/she has been unfairly graded in a course, the student should meet or communicate no later than the second week of the next term with the faculty member in an attempt to settle the disputed grade and avoid the formal appeal process. • Each faculty member shall communicate in clear, detailed written form his/her grading policy within the first week of the course. The policy shall be included in the course syllabus.

A cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher is required to receive a degree at BCC. While a student may earn a cumulative average of 2.00 which includes grades of “D” or “F”, grades below a “C” may not be acceptable in some programs and at some colleges and universities.

Scholastic Achievement

Based on the term grade point average, BCC recognizes students with high academic achievement during the fall and spring terms only. Dean’s List: (fall and spring) lists all students who have earned six or more credits during the term with a grade point average of 3.25 - 3.74. Honors List: (fall and spring) lists all students who have earned at least six credit hours during the term with a grade point average of 3.75 - 3.99. President’s List: (fall and spring) lists all students who have earned at least six credit hours during the term with a grade point average of 4.00. Note: An ‘‘F’’ or “I” in any course precludes a student from being listed on the Dean’s, Honors, or President’s list during that term.

Official and Unofficial BCC Transcripts

Current students can obtain unofficial transcripts at no charge via the myBCC portal found on the BCC homepage or through www.facts.org. There is a $5 fee for each official transcript requested. Payment must be received in full before requests will be processed. BCC cannot process requests via email or telephone. An official transcript request must be submitted in writing or online. Online requests are processed the most quickly. Requests may be also be submitted manually via mail, fax (321) 433-7172 or walk-in.

Note for A.A. degree students: Some senior institutions count all hours attempted and all quality points earned. Note for VA students: VA benefits may be received for repeat courses assigned a “D” grade, if a grade of “C” or higher is required by SBE Rule 6A-10.30 (Gordon Rule).

U.S. mail is the preferred delivery method; however, students may designate the transcript for pick up in the Office of the Registrar in Financial Aid, Building 1 on the Cocoa campus. Photo ID is required for transcript pick up. The college does not fax or email official transcripts, and cannot provide an official transcript if there is a hold on the student account. Allow 3 - 5 business days for processing the request.

Withdrawal from a Course

State Board Rule 6A-14.0301 • Students who withdraw from a course will receive a grade of “W” on their transcript. A Course Withdrawal Form must be submitted to the Admissions and Records office by the published withdrawal deadline. The dates are published in the Schedule of Classes each term. There is no refund for withdrawals. • Students may not withdraw from a course taken for the third time; they must receive a grade for the third attempt. Students considering withdrawing from any course are strongly encouraged to speak with a student advisor and Financial Aid to discuss any impact that a withdrawal may have financially or academically. • The “third attempt” rule went into effect in the fall of 1997. • Exceptions to these guidelines and exemptions from fullcost tuition must be petitioned through the campus Associate Provost or designee. • It is the student’s responsibility to complete and submit a Course Withdrawal Form to initiate the withdrawal process. Students who withdraw from a course are still responsible for tuition and fees for the course.

Transcripts can be sent within the 48 continental United States via Federal Express for a $25 fee per destination. Federal Express will not accept or ship to P.O. Boxes. Contact (321) 433-7284 for information. Additional Information • Official transcripts will not be provided “on demand.” • Email requests cannot be honored. • Students with active transcript HOLDS cannot receive an official transcript until the obligations are met and the holds are removed.

Maximum Attempts per Course

Students may withdraw without academic penalty from any course by the established deadline as follows: 1. A student may have only three attempts per course including the original grade, repeat grades and all withdrawals. The most recent grade is included in the computation of the cumulative grade point average. Students will be required to pay 100% of the direct instructional cost beginning with the third attempt. Students who want to pursue an appeal should consult an advisor. 2. Courses taken at institutions other than BCC will not be counted in determining repeat charges. 3. Some types of financial aid do not cover repeat course attempts. Students should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine status. 4. A course can be counted only once toward meeting graduation requirements, except where permitted by a course description. 5. Attempts “counted” begin with courses taken fall of 1997. 6. A fourth attempt may be allowed only with approval of the Associate Provost or designee, based upon an academic appeals process which requires documenting serious extenuating circ*mstances, which are considered to be exceptional, documented and beyond the control of the student. Criteria used to determine extenuating circ*mstances include, but may not be limited to: • serious illness • medical conditions preventing completion • death of an immediate family member • call to active duty • learning disability • English as a second language • change in employment conditions • natural disasters

Repeating Courses (Grade Forgiveness)

State Rule 6A-14.0301 addresses repeated courses and grade forgiveness. A course in which a grade of “D” or “F” has been earned may be repeated for grade point purposes. A course in which a satisfactory grade (“A”, “B” or “C”) has been earned may not be repeated for grade point purposes. Only the most recent grade is included in the computation of the cumulative grade average at BCC. (Exception: if student repeats a course in which he earned an “A”, “B” or “C”, the first passing grade will be included.) • Students who repeat a course for which they have received a “D” or “F” must complete a “Grade Forgiveness” form and submit to any Admissions office. The Office of the Registrar will complete any unprocessed grade forgiveness for repeated courses during the graduation checkout process or when the conditions for grade forgiveness are satisfied. • No course may be repeated for grade forgiveness purposes after graduation. Some colleges and universities count all hours attempted and all quality points earned regardless of BCC’s grade forgiveness policy. • Credit for courses passed through credit by exam, for example Advanced Placement (AP), College Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES, or International Baccalaureate (IB) credit, will not be awarded if student has already successfully completed the course at BCC. • A course may be counted only once toward graduation requirements, except where permitted by a course description. • Note: Students are advised that there may be a potential impact of repeated courses when transferring to other institutions, and should consider the impact of retaking a course on their specific financial aid package and toward excessive hours.

Financial hardship exemptions may be granted more than once for each course; however, an exemption based on a financial hardship will only be granted after the student has demonstrated reasonable effort to succeed in the course. Examples of criteria used for determining financial hardship: • qualification for federal need-based financial aid • documented financial hardship

Early Alert

Financial Obligations

“Early Alert” is a mid-term warning letter generated during the fall and spring terms. Students determined to be in academic jeopardy in a specific course are encouraged to take the steps necessary to successfully complete their course(s).

BCC will not release diplomas or official transcripts to students who have outstanding financial obligations to the college.

Graduation with Honors

A student completing degree or certificate requirements with a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or higher will graduate with honors.

Graduation

Students who are ready to graduate must submit an Intent to Graduate Application by the prescribed application deadline during the term in which they plan to graduate. The application form must be completed and signed by the student and a student advisor, who will verify that the student has or will have completed all degree requirements within the term applying. Degrees are not conferred until all grades have been posted and a final verification of the student’s record is completed by the Office of the Registrar.

Graduation with Multiple Degrees

Students may earn more than one degree or certificate from BCC. Students may earn only one associate in arts degree in the state of Florida. However, they may earn unlimited associate in science or associate in applied science degrees upon completion of all degree requirements. Students who have an A.A.S. degree may receive an A.S. degree in the same area upon completion of additional coursework. Students with an A.S. degree are not eligible to receive an A.A.S. in the same program area. While some associate in science degrees have multiple options, students may receive the respective degree only once. The transcript and diploma will be posted with the degree name, not the option.

The College holds two commencement ceremonies for graduating students: a spring ceremony in May and a summer/fall ceremony in December. Students who complete their requirements for graduation during the summer will be officially graduated in the summer and the degree or certificate awarded and mailed. Summer graduates are invited to “walk” in the summer/fall ceremony, and should contact the office of the Registrar to RSVP to be included in ceremony updates.

Governing Catalog

The governing catalog is the BCC catalog in effect at the time of the student’s initial enrollment in credit courses at BCC. Students will follow the policies and graduation requirements in the governing catalog except when changed by law or by the Board of Trustees, providing student has continuous enrollment in accordance with the following guidelines. • Continuous enrollment is defined as enrollment in at least one credit course in both the fall and spring terms each academic year. • A BCC catalog is valid for five academic years. The governing catalog for students whose catalog has expired will be the one in effect in the next term of enrollment. • A student may officially declare any subsequent catalog as his/her governing catalog and follow its requirements – providing he/she has continuous enrollment and the catalog is not more than 5 years old. • If a student changes his/her degree or certificate program, he/she is required to choose from the current program offerings and follow the graduation requirements of the current catalog. • If a student has a break in enrollment, he/she must follow the catalog in effect at the time he/she re-enrolls in credit courses. • The governing catalog for students pursuing limited access programs will be the catalog in effect when they are accepted into the program.

Students must complete a minimum of 25% of the degree/program requirements through traditional coursework taken at BCC. See specific degree graduation requirements in the programs section of this catalog.

Graduation Fees

A graduation fee of $20 per degree must accompany the application. The application deadline date is published each term in the Schedule of Classes, the Academic Calendar and on the BCC website: www.brevardcc.edu ➤ Current Students ➤Graduation Late Fee A late fee of $20 per student will be assessed for applications submitted after the deadline. There is no guarantee the student’s name will appear in the printed commencement program if the application is submitted late. Re-Application Fee Students who do not complete all graduation requirements in the term of initial application must submit a new Intent to Graduate Application and pay another $20 graduation processing fee in the term they complete their requirements.

The official version of the catalog is the online version on the BCC website. Should the Board of Trustees approve changes in program requirements to be effective within an academic year, the revised requirements will be available in the online catalog.

Duplicate or Replacement Diploma A duplicate diploma may be requested at the time of initial application at the cost of $20 per diploma. A replacement diploma can be printed at the cost of $20 per diploma. NOTE: Duplicate and replacement diplomas contain verbiage indicating they are not originals.

Instructor-Specific Attendance Policy

Transcripts and Other Requirements

Students must satisfy all BCC admissions requirements before they will be awarded a degree from BCC. In addition to an official high school transcript, this includes submission of official transcripts from all postsecondary institutions attended prior to their graduation with an associate’s degree from BCC.

Instructors are required to monitor their attendance and report students who are not attending class during designated reporting periods, normally on a monthly basis, each term. Faculty members shall publish and distribute a class syllabus no later than the end of the second week of class in a given academic term. The syllabus should include the instructor’s attendance policy and may include special circ*mstances under which students’ absences may be excused and stipulations for making up work and exams missed during instructor-excused absences. Instructors may require a more rigorous attendance policy due to program requirements or state mandates of 100% attendance. Specific course requirements will be noted in their syllabuses.

Course Waiver/Substitution

Upon recommendation of the appropriate department chair and approval from the provost, under extenuating circ*mstances a course may be waived or substituted for graduation purposes. A Petition for Course Waiver or Petition for Course Substitution form must be filed with the campus Admissions and Records Office for the waiver or substitution to be processed. Courses are waived or substituted for specific degrees only. A course that is waived or substituted does not appear on the student’s transcript. Course waivers or substitutions are applied to a specific degree or program only and requests must be completed for each degree.

eBrevard Course Attendance Policy

Log into your class on the first day of the term and perform an academic activity during the first three days. Students who do not participate in their classes weekly may be withdrawn for non-attendance and may not be reinstated.

General Attendance Policy

Religious Observances

The College recognizes the correlation between attendance and both student retention and achievement. Any class session or activity missed, regardless of cause, reduces the opportunity for learning and may adversely affect a student’s achievement in the course. Class attendance is required beginning with the first class meeting, and students are expected to attend all class sessions for which they are registered. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange to make up all course work missed because of legitimate class absences and to notify the instructor when an absence will occur. The instructor determines the effect of absences on grades. Students who are reported as never attending a course may be withdrawn from the class by the College. Funds may be adjusted or rescinded for students who are receiving financial aid or veterans’ benefits.

When the observance of a student's religious holiday(s) interferes with attendance in class, class work assignments, examinations, or class activities, the student must notify the instructor in writing within the first week of class. Students are held responsible for material covered during their absence. The instructor should provide alternative arrangements for students to complete the work for the missed session. Students excused for religious observances will be expected to meet the class requirements for those days without undue delay. Students who believe they have been unreasonably denied educational benefits due to their religious beliefs or practices may seek redress through the student appeal procedure. [FS 1001.64, 1002.21, 1006.53]

Transient Student from BCC

A transient student from Brevard Community College is someone who is currently enrolled at BCC and desires to take courses at another institution. The Office of the Registrar provides the Request for Transient Student Status form. The quickest way to request transient status at another Florida state is electronically through www.facts.org. Click on “College Students,” under “Quick Links” click on “Transient Student Admissions Application.” Select BCC as your Home Institution and the school you want to attend as the Transient Institution and submit your request. You can check the status of your request online.

In order to obtain credit for a course a student must attend at least 85% of the contact hours for a particular course. However, instructors are given the option of allowing a student to complete the course based on the student’s documented circ*mstances and his or her progress in the course. In online courses, instructors define expected interaction between themselves, students and the class learning management system (and/or media). Inconsistent interaction and/or inconsistent use of the learning management system or course materials, regardless of cause, reduce the opportunity for learning.

Transient student status will only be approved if each of these requirements has been met: • Student is in good standing at BCC with a minimum GPA of 2.00 • Student has completed all required preparatory courses

The instructor may withdraw any student from the course if the student misses more than 15% of the scheduled class sessions and activities. In the case of online courses, any student who is not interactive or responsive in a timely manner, as specified by the instructor, may be withdrawn. Students must be enrolled before they can attend class.

Students will be approved to take only those courses that they would be eligible to take at Brevard Community College (e.g., student who has not completed prep algebra would not be approved to take MAC 1105 at BCC or another institution).

Note: Veterans should refer to the Veteran Affairs section of the college catalog for more information about attendance.

FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS & PRIVACY ACT Notification of Rights under FERPA for Postsecondary Institutions

Student Directory Information FERPA requires each institution to determine directory information that may be released without the student’s consent, unless the student has specifically requested that some or all of the information not be released. BCC has identified the following as directory information:

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include: 1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access.

• Student name* • Student street address*

A student should submit to the registrar, head of the academic department, or other appropriate official, a written request that identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The College official will make arrangements for access and notify the student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. If the records are not maintained by the College official to whom the request was submitted, that official shall advise the student of the correct official to whom the request should be addressed. 2.

• Date of birth* • Email address* • Phone number* • Photo ID picture/video* • Dates of attendance (session dates only) • Major field of study • Weight and height of members of athletic teams

The right to request the amendment of the student’s education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student’s privacy rights under FERPA.

• Degrees and awards received • Most recent educational institution attended

*Important Directory Information Note:

A student who wishes to ask the College to amend a record should write the College official responsible for the record, clearly identify the part of the record the student wants changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the College decides not to amend the record as requested, the College will notify the student in writing of the decision and the student’s right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the student when notified of the right to a hearing. 3.

Although BCC has designated student name, street and email addresses, phone number, and photographs as directory information, these will appear only in BCC generated information such as the commencement programs, BCC publications, student IDs, and news releases of awards. Email addresses may be made available to students in distance learning environments where electronic communication between students is required. In addition, students’ names and addresses will be given to selected institutions of higher education for recruiting purposes and military branches in accordance with federal guidelines. Military branches also will be given phone numbers.

The right to provide written consent before the College discloses personally identifiable information from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.

Student Right To Privacy The College respects students’ personal information, and guards information carefully. The student’s social security number is not used as a student’s primary identifier (although it is collected); an institutional Student ID number is assigned for student use to access records and receive services. A student who chooses to withhold directory information must submit a written request to the campus Admissions and Records Office.

The College discloses education records without a student’s prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the College in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); a person or company with whom the College has contracted as its agent to provide a service instead of using College employees or officials (such as an attorney, auditor, or collection agent); a person serving on the District Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks.

What Does This Mean? When a student turns 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, the student, and not the parent, may access, seek to amend, and consent to disclosures of his or her education records. Only the student may request access to his or her education records. Only the student may register for classes. The student may grant permission for a third party to do this only by signing a release form which specifies exactly who, what and when the designated person may access the student’s information.

A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the College. Upon request, the College also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll. 4.

The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The name and address of the Office that administers FERPA is: Family Policy Compliance Office U.S. Department of Education 400 Maryland Avenue, SW Washington, DC 20202-5901

ACCELERATED EDUCATION PROGRAMS Dual Enrollment

Unacceptable behavior may result in administrative action by the College including but not limited to withdrawal from a BCC course or removal from the Dual Enrollment Program.

The Dual Enrollment Program enables qualified public, private and home education students in the 10th, 11th and 12th grades to enroll in selected college and vocational credit courses offered by BCC. The postsecondary credits that they earn count toward both a college degree or certificate and a high school diploma.

Early Admission Early Admission is a form of dual enrollment that enables qualified public, private and home education students to enroll at BCC instead of enrolling at their high school in the fall term of the 12th grade. Students accepted for Early Admission must register for at least 4 courses equaling a total of 12 credit hours or more each term and earn sufficient credits at the college to meet high school graduation requirements. They are expected to take all coursework at the college. Students whose term GPA falls below a 2.00 shall be withdrawn from Early Admission for academic reasons and returned to the high school program. Early admission participants are also expected to comply with all BCC policies.

Students may enroll in up to three courses each in the fall and spring terms and two courses during the summer. Qualified th 12 grade students who meet dual enrollment eligibility may be considered for full-time dual enrollment at BCC in the spring term if recommended by the high school. Participants in fulltime dual enrollment must take all coursework at BCC and enroll in at least four courses totaling 12 or more credits. New students must complete the BCC admissions process prior to registering for the first time. The application process requires that students: 1. Attend a dual enrollment orientation 2. Submit the BCC Application for Admission and an official high school transcript 3. Present scores from a state-approved college placement test, such as the ACT, PERT, CPT or SAT if registering for a college credit class

In addition to having completed the BCC admissions process, prior to applying for acceptance into the program. Early admission candidates must meet the eligibility criteria set by the College and complete the BCC early admission application process by the established deadline. Credit in Escrow th Qualified secondary students who have completed the 9 grade with a state cumulative un-weighted high school GPA of 2.00 or higher may enroll part-time at BCC through Credit in Escrow provided the student has completed the admissions process. Students may enroll for a maximum of 11 credit hours each in the fall and spring terms and 6 credit hours during the summer term. Students must meet all course prerequisites.

Home school students must also provide verification from the Brevard County School Board of compliance with home education requirements. Private school students must be enrolled in a school that the college has approved for participation in the Dual Enrollment Program. At the time of registration students must provide to the college advisor the BCC Accelerated Education Registration Form completed by the high school documenting that the student meets the GPA requirement for the selected program of study. Minimum state cumulative un-weighted high school GPA requirements include: • 3.00 for the Associate in Arts Degree • 2.50 for the Associate in Science Degree and the Associate in Applied Science Degree • 2.50 for a College Credit Certificate • 2.00 for a Postsecondary Adult Vocational Certificate

Students are responsible for the payment of all fees, including registration, tuition and laboratory fees and for purchasing required textbooks and instructional materials. Postsecondary credits earned at BCC through credit in escrow do NOT count toward meeting high school graduation requirements and a high school diploma. Tech Prep Credit /Advance Standing Credit Students who have recently completed approved Career and Technical Education programs at Brevard Public Schools may be eligible to receive Brevard Community College credit at no cost. Brevard Community College and Brevard Public Schools have established agreements in specific technical programs that allow students to receive accelerated college credit in related college technical program areas. Tech Prep/Advance Standing Credit allows students to avoid duplication of course content. Tech Prep/Advance Standing Credit agreements are designed for students who are working towards an associate in science degree, a college credit certificate or a postsecondary adult vocational certificate. Students must petition the college Registrar within three years of high school graduation to have Tech Prep/Advanced Standing credit placed on their college record.

In accordance with Florida Statute 1007.271(2) BCC exempts dual enrollment students from paying registration, tuition and laboratory fees. The Brevard County School Board loans public school students required textbooks, but may not provide onetime use items such as consumable workbooks, electronic access codes and personal tools. It is the public school student’s responsibility to purchase these items. Private school and home education students pay for required textbooks and all other instructional materials. To remain eligible in good standing for dual enrollment, students must meet the overall high school GPA requirement for the selected program of study and earn a term GPA of at least 2.00 in college coursework. In addition students must exhibit responsible and appropriate behavior while at the college and comply with high school and college policies.

STUDENT SERVICES Mission and Goal Statement

Learning Resources (Libraries) The libraries provide information and services to support the curriculum and meet the needs of Brevard Community College students, staff, and faculty. The college has libraries on the Cocoa, Melbourne, Palm Bay, and Titusville campuses, each with its own unique book, audiovisual, and periodical collection. In addition to a combined print collection of more than 200,000 volumes, the libraries provide online access to more than 100 research databases with thousands of full-text magazine, journal, and newspaper articles; a collection of 40,000 eBooks; digitally streamed video and music content; and, Ask-ALibrarian research assistance by e-mail or real-time “chat.”

Brevard Community College, by virtue of its institutional purpose and mission, has a responsibility to provide appropriate student services based upon the individual needs of all students. The BCC Student Services is charged with meeting those student needs not traditionally associated with classroom activity. Specifically, the mission of Enrollment Management is to provide assistance with academic assessment, advisem*nt, course placement, class registration, class scheduling, career planning, referrals to external agencies for support services, and development of student leadership and social skills. As an integral part of the “learningcentered college,’’ Student Services strives to increase students’ social and academic integration, students’ development of education and career plans, and students’ acquisition of study and life skills.

Electronic resources are conveniently available when you logon to the BCC Titan Portal (www.brevardcc.edu) using your User ID B-Number and PIN, or from the library website (www.brevardcc.edu/ library) also using your User ID BNumber and PIN. Enrolled BCC students can check out or use materials at any campus Learning Resource Center, and are eligible for borrowing privileges at all Florida community college and state university libraries. Through the LINCC (Library Information Network for Community Colleges) database, students have online access to the collections of Florida’s other 27 community colleges. The Community College network system currently supports interlibrary loan and courier delivery service to further enhance the accessibility of resources for all students. Some library services are also made available to Brevard County residents. Librarians are available at all libraries to assist with research and course assignments, and to provide library instruction sessions. Instruction in library research tailored for course assignments is offered as requested by instructors. The Brevard Information Literacy Tutorial (BILT) is an online tutorial for research skills available on the library website. The libraries offer two courses for credit, LIS 1023, Information Technology Literacy (2 credits) and LIS 2004, Introduction to Internet Research (1 credit). These courses teach information literacy skills. For additional information regarding campus libraries and current hours of operation, call the campus or visit the BCC Library website.

Student Ombudsman (Advocates) On each BCC campus the Associate Provost serves as the ombudsman to assist students with problems involving the delivery or receipt of student services. Academic Advising Advisors provide information about graduation requirements, interpretation of placement tests, course selection consultation and referral for career direction and referrals to outside agencies for students’ personal concerns. Services are available on a walk-in basis in the Student Services office on each campus. All first time, degree-seeking students must see an advisor prior to registering. Academic Responsibility The concept of academic freedom must be accompanied by an equally demanding concept of academic responsibility which properly includes activities both within the classroom and outside the education environment. As a representative of an educational institution and a person of learning, a faculty member occupies a special place in the community, yet such community status imposes special obligations. Faculty (and other employees of an educational institution) must realize that the public may judge the institution based on their interactions within the college community.

Foreign Language Labs The Foreign Language Labs located on each campus provide academic support and cultural resources to students studying foreign languages and American Sign Language. Students may develop individualized learning programs to enhance classroom lectures and communication skills by using various technologies available in the lab. They can explore various cultures through learning communities and practice foreign language skills to improve their abilities to communicate in the new language.

Academic Freedom The concept of academic freedom provides students and faculty the right to pursue knowledge, to conduct research, to publish, to seek truth, to probe, to examine, to question, to disagree and to state opinions without fear of condemnation or reprisal. UCF Consortium Students-DirectConnect A partnership has been established with the University of Central Florida which guarantees admission to UCF if you graduate from BCC with your A.A. degree. Students are strongly encouraged to declare a major in their first 24 credit hours at BCC if they plan to transfer to UCF. See an advisor for more information.

Meningococcal Disease An acute bacterial disease, characterized by sudden symptoms of fever, intense headache, nausea and often vomiting, stiff neck and frequently a petechial (small purplish red spots) rash which may appear pink in color. Symptoms may mimic Influenza, however Influenza rarely has vomiting or other gastrointestinal symptoms. Approximately 2,500 to 3,000 individuals are diagnosed with Meningococcal disease in the United States annually. Most cases seem to occur in the late winter to early spring. Although Meningococcal disease is primarily seen among very small children, this disease occurs commonly in children and young adults. College students particularly whom reside in dormitories may be at increased risk for Meningococcal disease. The general population may have an incidence of 1.1 per 100,000 while those students in dormitories have a rate of 3 to 5 cases per 100,000. Transmission occurs by direct contact, including droplets from the nose and throat of infected persons. The exchange of salvia by kissing, sharing of food utensils, and sharing cigarettes is the most common modes of transmission among college students. Before early diagnosis, modern therapy and supportive measures the death rate exceeded 50%. The vaccine is administered with 1 dose for individuals 2 years of age. The vaccine may be given to pregnant females. You should not be vaccinated with this vaccine if you have had a serious allergic reaction to a previous dose of this vaccine or are mildly ill at the time of scheduled Meningococcal vaccine.

3. Once students receive their parking permit, which is orange in color for the 2011-12 academic year, students must adhere the permit to the left side of their vehicle's rear bumper or lower left side of their vehicle’s rear glass window. Parking permits must be adhered to motorcycles in a visible location. The 2011-12 student parking permits are now available through Titan Web Service’s parking permit request system. Students registered for fall 2011 classes who wish to park a vehicle on any of BCC's four campuses, are encouraged to request your parking permit today. Hepatitis B Hepatitis B is a virus that infects the liver. With this disease, signs and symptoms occur in about 30 to 50% of patients infected. Only 30% have jaundice (yellowing of the skin and whites of the eyes). Children under the age of 5 rarely have symptoms of hepatitis. When and if symptoms occur, patients may show signs of jaundice, fatigue, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, and joint pain. Some patients will become chronically infected with Hepatitis B. This will occur in up to 90% of children born to mothers who are infected, 30% of children infected at 1-5 years, and 6% of persons infected after age 5. Death from chronic liver disease occurs in 15-25% of chronically infected persons – 1.2 million individuals are chronic carriers of Hepatitis B in the United States. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that approximately 5% of the world’s populations are chronically infected with Hepatitis B. One million die from Hepatitis B worldwide each year. In the United States approximately 80 thousand become infected and approximately 3,000 die annually from Hepatitis B. Risk factors for Hepatitis B are individuals whom have multiple sex partners or diagnosis of sexually transmitted diseases, men who have sex with men, sex contacts of infected persons, injection drug users, household contacts of chronically infected persons, infants born to infected mothers, infants/children of immigrants from areas with high rates of Hepatitis B, some health care workers, and hemodialysis patients. You should not be vaccinated with this vaccine if: • you have ever had a life threatening allergic reaction to baker’s yeast (used to make bread), • you have ever had a severe allergic reaction to previous dose of Hepatitis vaccine or, • you are moderately or severely ill at the time of a scheduled vaccine with Hepatitis B (you should wait until you recover from the condition). Individuals who take these vaccines should have few if any side effects. These diseases are always much more severe than the vaccine. A few individuals may experience: • Soreness and/or redness where the shot was administered, lasting a day or two, • Mild to moderate fever, again lasting a day or two, Severe reaction is extremely rare!

HIV, AIDS & Other Life-Threatening Diseases When an employee or student becomes aware that he/she has a serious medical condition, such as HIV, AIDS or another lifethreatening communicable disease, the student or employee is encouraged to seek assistance from the college. Specific information relating to HIV or AIDS can be obtained by calling 1-800-FLA-AIDS. The college conforms to the American College Health Association’s recommended standards for confidentiality of information pertaining to the medical situation of employees and students as presented in the Recommended Standards for a College Health Program, 4th edition, 1984. These standards include: ‘‘. . . no specific detailed information concerning complaints or diagnosis to be provided to faculty, administrators, or even parents without the expressed written permission of the patient in each case. This position with respect to health records is supported by amendment to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.’’ Although Brevard Community College does not REQUIRE vaccination against meningococcal disease or Hepatitis B for students, we strongly encourage everyone attending the College to be aware of the symptoms, risk factors, preventative measures and cure for these diseases.

Student Appeals

Drug Free Campus Policy Summary

Any situation requiring an appeal, other than disciplinary or academic dishonesty, should be addressed as soon as possible in a non-confrontational manner. If the situation involves classroom policy or grades, the student should contact the instructor. Problems involving refunds and/or exceptions from college procedures should be addressed with the campus Associate Provost. The Collegewide Student Appeals Committee, comprised of students, faculty and staff, consider appeals that cannot be resolved through regular channels on the home campus. Appeal forms, as well as additional information regarding the appeal process, are available through the campus Associate Provost. Appeals will only be accepted within two years from when the student took the course.

Because the likelihood of success is dramatically reduced for students who abuse drugs, Brevard Community College is determined to have drug-free campuses. Illegal use of drugs or alcohol will not be tolerated on any BCC campus or at any BCC-sponsored event off campus. Brevard Community College requires applicants to commit themselves to obeying the law and refraining from illegal drug and alcohol activity on its campuses and at its events. Applicants who cannot agree to sign this pledge will not be granted admission to Brevard Community College. However, they will be offered referral counseling to inform them of drug rehabilitation services in the community which may help them. The Student Services Office on each campus can provide further information.

Student Appeals Process

A student who is convicted for a drug-related offense that occurred on campus or while in attendance at a college event will be sanctioned up to and including suspension or expulsion. A student who tests positive for an illegal drug or control substance during screening for college-related programs or for program-related clinicals will also be sanctioned up to and including suspension or expulsion.

There are two types of student appeals: academic appeals and administrative appeals. Academic Appeals – deal with issues regarding instructors, classmates, course content and/or delivery, grades, etc. This appeal begins the appeals process with Step 1. Administrative Appeals – deal with issues regarding admissions, registration, and late withdrawals due to extenuating circ*mstances. This appeal begins with step 1 but skips steps 2 and 3.

The College has the responsibility to refer for prosecution anyone engaging in illegal drug or controlled substance activity on its campuses or off-campus events. A student who is convicted of any drug offense must report it to the Associate Provost on his/her campus within five days. Students may contact the same office for any explanation of appeal of rights for each step of the disciplinary process.

The process for filing an appeal is outlined below: 1. 2.

4.

Students must complete their educational objective within a given time frame: a. All A.A., A.S. and A.A.S. degree-seeking students have a maximum 90 attempted credit hours b. All certificate-seeking students are limited to no more than 150% of the published length of the educational program.

All transfer credits that are accepted by the college will be included as attempted credit hours as well as all Brevard Community College attempted coursework regardless of whether the courses are applicable toward the student’s degree.

Interested students should contact the Financial Aid Office on the campus they plan to attend for financial aid. What criteria must transfer students meet in order to qualify for financial aid? Transfer students must have all credits from previously attended colleges submitted to the college registrar for evaluation.

What attendance standards must students meet to remain eligible to receive financial aid? Students who are receiving financial aid or veteran’s benefits, who are reported as never attending a course, will be withdrawn from the class and benefits and awards adjusted, canceled, or rescinded. Distance-learning students who do not meet the attendance requirements applicable to online courses and are reported as never attending will be dropped.

What is the application procedure for financial aid? 1. Complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students can file electronically via the Internet. The Internet address is www.fafsa.ed.gov. The financial aid process is lengthy, so early application is highly encouraged. 2. While the student awaits the Student Aid Report (SAR) that will be generated as a result of the filing of the FAFSA, he/she should contact the Admissions and Records Office at BCC to make sure records are complete, including high school transcript, college transcript(s), appropriate testing, and declaration of a major. 3. Once the student receives the SAR, he/she should contact the Financial Aid Office to see if additional information is needed to complete his/her financial aid file. 4. The SAR is not a financial award. Each student will receive an Award Notice that informs the student of the aid for which he/she is eligible. 5. Once the student receives the Award Notice, he/she should access www.brevardcc.edu and login using their secure student ID# and PIN#. Click ➤ Student Services and Financial Aid icon Click ➤ Financial Aid and My Award Information Click ➤ Accept Award by Aid Year and accept only those awards that the student wishes to accept.

How do incomplete grades, withdrawals, remedial course work and repeating courses impact a student’s financial aid? A student who did not complete any credit hours in a term and has incompletes in that term has 20 college days in a full semester (10 in a mini-term) from the first day of classes of the following term to make up incomplete grades in order to continue receiving funds. Reinstatement of awards is contingent on a funds-available basis, and it is the student’s responsibility to notify the Financial Aid Office within the time frame provided. If grade changes or incomplete grades made up after the time frame should affect subsequent terms or academic year eligibility, students must provide transcripts reflecting such changes and petition for resolution through the Financial Aid Appeals Committee. Withdrawals from any course(s) shall be counted in the total hours attempted and can result in failure to meet the standards of progress. Students must follow the official withdrawal procedures established by the college. Funding for students assigned for remedial course work (college preparatory courses) will be limited to 30 credits. Course repeats always count in the total attempted credits, but the GPA configuration will only consider the final attempt in the cumulative GPA.

What academic standards must students meet to remain eligible to receive financial aid? Federal and state regulations require that students must meet minimum standards in order to be eligible to receive Financial Aid funds. The following minimum standards at Brevard Community College are applied uniformly to all Title IV financial aid programs administered by the college, except those programs whose eligibility requirements are restricted to institutional funds or outside donor restrictions: 1. Students must meet an academic performance requirement of at least a 2.00 cumulative GPA at the end of each term 2. Students must make progress toward their degree. Minimum progress toward a degree requires first year financial aid applicants who have previously attended the college to have earned 67% of registration attempted at the college. 3. Minimum progress toward a degree requires continuing financial aid recipients to earn 67% of credit hours attempted. The percentage calculation includes all hours attempted (college credit and vocational credit).

Do I have to repay federal funds if I withdraw from a course? Return of unearned funds refers to the return of federal financial aid dollars that the student did not earn as a result of totally withdrawing from all classes. Students who receive federal financial aid funds and subsequently withdraw from all classes will have a federal formula applied based on the date of withdrawal, percentage of the payment, and period attended by the student. If the formula indicates an amount “unearned,” a repayment of aid is required. The institution will notify the student in writing of any amount to be returned to the Federal Title IV accounts. Student must repay the amount within 45 days. Student will not qualify for further federal aid until the repayment is satisfied.

Financial Aid & Withdrawal

What is the procedure for establishing financial aid eligibility for a student whose eligibility has been suspended because of failure to meet the standards of satisfactory progress? If a student is suspended from financial aid, the student may attend a semester without Title IV federal aid, take at least 6 or more hours and complete them all with at least “C’s”, and be re-evaluated at the end of that term for satisfactory progress or the student may file an appeal.

Students reported as stopping attendance in one or more classes will be subject to a cancellation or reduction of aid. In order to retain eligibility for financial aid awards, students must attend the classes for which funds were received. A recipient of Federal Title IV financial aid who withdraws from school during a payment period or period of enrollment in which the student began attendance will have the amount of Title IV funds he/she did not earn calculated according to federal regulations. This calculation will be based on the student’s last date of attendance.

What is the procedure for financial aid appeal?

Students whose eligibility has been suspended (because of failure to meet the standards of satisfactory progress) can request a formal review of the decision to suspend financial aid eligibility. Some of the circ*mstances that can be considered for this special review (appeal) include: a death in the student’s immediate family, medical emergencies, accidents, divorce or separation, personal tragedy, or other documented circ*mstances beyond the student’s control that prevented him or her from meeting the minimum standards.

Scholarships

BCC offers scholarships in a number of areas. Students should apply directly to the BCC department that has the responsibility for awarding the scholarship.

BCC Foundation Scholarship Opportunities

The BCC Foundation is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization chartered to provide for the financial needs of the college that cannot be met through state aid or student tuition.

To appeal the decision on this basis, the following procedure must be followed: 1. The students must submit a written request to the Office of Financial Aid. This must include an unofficial BCC transcript and a planning sheet for the current major. 2. The circ*mstances that prevented satisfactory progress to occur must be clearly stated. 3. The request must include documentation to support the exceptional circ*mstances, such as death certificate, statement from physician, or other verifiable information. 4. Once the review has been made, the student may be placed on probation or be given a new Standard of Academic Progress (SAP) and will be notified of the results from the review.

The Brevard Community College Foundation enhances access and quality of education for students by attracting and managing private contributions from individuals, corporations, and private foundations. The BCC Foundation exists to support the college and advance its commitment to be our community’s center for quality teaching and lifelong learning. Various academic, cultural and discipline area scholarships are also available on a competitive basis and many organizations throughout the community offer scholarships to students who plan to attend BCC. The BCC Foundation offers many types of scholarship opportunities to students year-round, which are independent from aid opportunities offered through the Financial Aid Office. Foundation donors have set up generous scholarship funds for all disciplines and backgrounds. The amount and number of scholarships awarded vary from year to year, based on available funding.

Warning/Suspension (Financial Aid)

Students are monitored for a cumulative 2.00 GPA, completed credits/hours, and time frame at the end of every semester. Failure to maintain a cumulative 2.00 GPA results in a Warning status until a subsequent semester review occurs. If the subsequent semester review calculates a continued lack of progress the student is suspended. Students reaching or exceeding the maximum time frame will be automatically suspended.

The Foundation uses a completely online scholarship application program called “STARS” for all Foundation scholarships. This streamlined system helps determine student eligibility and recommends appropriate scholarships for each applicant. Students who are interested in learning more about Foundation scholarships or applying online should visit the Foundation’s website at www.brevardcc.edu/foundation.

Students Receiving Social Security Benefits

Eligible students may receive Social Security benefits while attending Brevard Community College. Benefits are subject to Social Security policy. Verification of the course load can be made only after the established drop deadline for each term. Full-time status is determined to be 12 or more semester hours.

VETERANS AFFAIRS U.S. Veterans and Eligible Dependents Applying for Veterans Education Benefits

Enrollment Policies/Procedures

Enrollment - Students are entitled to receive educational benefits only if pursuing an approved program of courses leading to a degree or vocational objective. Random selection of classes for VA payment is prohibited. Course work must be part of an approved program of study as reported to the VA.

Brevard Community College is fully accredited and approved for veterans training. Veterans and other eligible dependents planning on using their veteran’s education benefits should contact the Veteran’s Affairs Office, Ralph M. Williams Student Center, Building 11, Room 209, Cocoa Campus or the Student Services Center/Administration/Classrooms, Building 1, Room 140, Melbourne Campus at the earliest opportunity. Applications and instructions for completing a VA Education Benefit package will be provided during the initial visit. All new students must also file an admission application and meet all of the admission requirements. Once this is completed and you have registered for classes, bring any paperwork the VA office told you to return to the VA office and request to be certified for your education benefits. Each term thereafter you are required to notify the VA office that you are registered and request to be certified. The VA office will not certify you automatically.

Deficiency/Prep Classes - Deficiency/Prep classes can be certified for VA benefits if it is documented by a college program advisor that the college accepted testing method reveals that secondary level training is needed for the student to reach a certain mastery level necessary for pursuit of a postsecondary program of education. The Deficiency/Prep class must be taught in a classroom setting in order to be certified for it. The Veterans Affairs office cannot certify for a veteran to take an online or hybrid Deficiency/Prep course. VA students who complete a preparatory class before the end of the term will have their benefits reduced accordingly. The instructor will notify the VA Office by memorandum of the date course was completed.

Standards of Academic Progress

Under federal regulations, students receiving VA educational benefits must maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 each term. A VA student, whose GPA falls below a 2.00 at the end of any term, will be placed on academic probation for a maximum of two consecutive terms of enrollment. If the VA students’ cumulative GPA is still below a 2.00 at the end of the second consecutive term of enrollment, the students VA educational benefits will be terminated. Once a student has been terminated for unsatisfactory progress, they will be required to attend at least one term on their own and attain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 before they will be able to apply for reinstatement of their VA education benefits. VA students in these situations should contact the campus VA office immediately for assistance in applying for reinstatement of their VA educational benefits.

Graduation Electives – During the graduation term when a student is taking the last course or courses required to graduate, a student may be permitted to select any number of non-related elective courses needed to maintain educational benefit allowances at the desired level of payment. This is the only time VA will pay for a course not required by a student’s program objective.

Regular class attendance is required beginning with the first class meeting. “EXCESSIVE ABSENCES” is defined as being absent more than 15% of class meetings. However, instructors can establish a more rigorous attendance standard for their individual classes. If a veteran student exceeds the maximum authorized absences after the last date for withdrawal, the instructor must promptly notify the campus VA office by memorandum of the last date of attendance and assign the grade of “F” to those students. It is the policy of the Department of Veterans’ Affairs that veteran students who withdraw from a class after the established drop deadline or are administratively withdrawn will be required to repay all benefits received for those classes unless mitigating circ*mstances are determined as excusable by the Department of Veterans’ Affairs. The only exception to this policy is that the VA will allow students to withdraw one time for a maximum of six credit hours without having to furnish mitigating circ*mstances and/or repay benefits. Students receiving veteran’s benefits, who are reported as never attending a course, will be withdrawn from the class and benefits adjusted or rescinded.

State of Florida Employee Fee Waiver

BCC Card – Higher One

Per F.S. Section 1009.265, BCC will waive tuition for state employees to enroll for up to 6 credit hours of courses per term on a space-available basis. For purposes of this waiver, employees of the State include employees of the executive, legislative and judicial branches of state government, except for persons employed by a state university.

Brevard Community College has partnered with Higher One®, a financial services company focused solely on higher education to provide a method of refund disbursem*nts to students. BCC will be issuing the BCC Card from Higher One® as a way for students to receive refunds from the college. The BCC Card is designed to provide students with increased choice when it comes to receiving their financial aid or school refunds— including the preferred Easy Refundsm method. Easy Refund is by far the fastest and easiest way to gain access to refund money--literally the same day BCC releases it.

Guidelines: • State employees are responsible for paying admissions application fees. • State employees must complete all admissions requirements, including the application for admission, placement testing, transcripts, proof of prerequisites, etc. • State employees must register during the last 3 days of Add/Drop. Registration is for classes on a space available basis only. • State employees must complete the designated registration form available in campus Admissions and Records offices and submit, along with the state employment verification form, to the campus admissions and records office. • The state employee waiver does not cover any associated lab fees. State employees taking online courses are responsible for paying the required technology fee of $10 per credit hour, as well as any associated lab fees at the time of registration.

BCC Cards will be mailed to the current address on file with the college. Therefore, it is critical that a student has their correct mailing address on file. You can visit Brevardcc.edu to learn more about all the great benefits that accompany the BCC Card.

Florida policies and programs that help to ease student transfer Florida’s Statewide Articulation Agreement, General Education Core Requirements, Common Prerequisites, Statewide Course Numbering System, the Associate in Science to Bachelor of Science transfer program, and the online advising and tracking system, FACTS.org, assist students in smoothly transitioning from a 2-year to a 4-year college or university program. Each of them provides certain guarantees and protections to ensure that an AA degree program is comparable to the first 2 years of a 4-year degree program.

Statewide articulation agreement

The Statewide Articulation Agreement guarantees the transfer of 60 credits earned as part of the AA degree. However, students are not guaranteed transfer into the university or program of their choice. Admission to certain limited access programs and high demand universities is very competitive. Admission can be based on GPA, completion of all the common prerequisites, completion of the Foreign Language requirement, and other requirements. The Articulation Agreement guarantees that transfer students will have an equal opportunity to compete against native university students to enter limited access programs. It is the student’s responsibility to know the transfer admission requirements and be as prepared as possible to compete for a place in the 4-year program. Students can find these requirements and track their progress toward completion using the advising audits on FACTS.org.

general education core requirementS

Each state institution has a 36-hour general education program that is part of the AA degree and is uniquely designed to introduce college and university students to the fundamental knowledge, skills, and values that are essential to the study of academic disciplines. The Articulation Agreement guarantees that the 36-hour general education block of credit, earned at any public college or state university, will be accepted in total by any other public institution in Florida and no further courses will be required to meet the general education component. However, if a student transfers prior to completing the 36-hour general education requirement, the student may be required to take additional courses to meet the general education requirement at the receiving college or university. Therefore, if a student must transfer prior to receiving the AA degree, it is strongly recommended that they complete the 36-hour general education block prior to transferring so that they will not have to take additional courses.

common PrerequiSiteS

Most bachelor’s degree programs require that specific coursework be completed prior to admission into the program. The amount of coursework varies depending on the program of study. These additional courses are referred to as Common Prerequisites. The Articulation Coordinating Committee approves the common prerequisites and publishes them annually in the Common Prerequisite Manual, which can be found online at www.facts.org. Students working toward an AA degree should decide upon a program of study/major as early as possible so they can identify the prerequisite courses required and complete them as a part of the AA degree. Guidelines from the Florida College System Council of Presidents recommend that students select a program prior to earning 24 credit hours and that they review their progress on FACTS.org annually to assess if they are on track.

Brevard Community College

FACTS.org offers 4 advising audits that can assist students in the 2 + 2 option. • Graduation Check - Compares a student’s transcript to the requirements of the program in which they are currently registered. • Impact of Changing Majors or Schools Compares a student’s transcript to a different major/program at the student’s current institution or at a different institution. • AA Transfer Evaluation - Compares a student’s transcript to the requirements for a 4-year university program/major. This audit clearly indicates whether or not the courses taken and GPA earned in the AA degree match the prerequisites required for entrance to the bachelor’s degree program. • Program Graduation Requirements - Provides the requirements for any program at any college or university.

Statewide courSe numbering SyStem

The Statewide Course Numbering System facilitates the transfer of students among all Florida public postsecondary institutions and participating private institutions. Courses that have similar academic content and are taught by faculty with comparable faculty credentials are given the same prefix (MAT) and number (1023), and are considered to be equivalent courses. By Florida law, an institution accepting a transfer student from another participating institution must award credit for equivalent courses. Credits awarded must satisfy the requirements of the receiving institution as though the student had taken the courses at the receiving institution. Excluded from this guaranteed transfer are: • college preparatory and career and technical preparatory courses; • applied courses in the performing arts (dance, interior design, music, studio art, theater); • clinical courses in health related areas; • skill courses in Criminal Justice; • graduate courses; • courses with the last three digits ranging from 900 – 999; and • courses not offered at the receiving institution.

A.A. Degree

ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE Associate in Arts Degree - University Parallel Program

Graduation Requirements for the Associate in Arts Degree

The Associate in Arts Degree (A.A.) is a university parallel degree designed for students who intend to earn a bachelor's degree from a four-year college or university. The A.A. degree is comparable to the freshman and sophom*ore years (lower division) of a university program and requires a total of 60 college-level credit hours for completion.

Responsibility for meeting the requirements of graduation rests with the student. The Associate in Arts Degree is awarded to those students who have: • Satisfactorily completed a prescribed course of study totaling 60 semester hours that include 36 semester hours of general education course work and 24 hours of elective credit • Completed at least 25% (15 hours) of the college credit hours through Brevard Community College • Achieved a "C" or higher in all courses used to fulfill communications, mathematics, humanities and social/behavioral sciences general education requirements • Achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher in all college work attempted • An "I" received in term of graduation is calculated as an "F" grade for purposes of computing the student's GPA for graduation • Filed an Intent to Graduate Application and paid the graduation fee • Submitted all outstanding transcripts and removed all financial obligations to the college. Final transcript and diploma will not be released until student has removed all financial obligations to the college.

Within the 60 credit hours, students must successfully complete 36 credit hours of general education courses from within the subject areas of communications, mathematics, humanities, behavioral/social sciences, and natural sciences. The remaining 24 credit hours are electives. It is essential that students work closely with an academic advisor to choose electives required for their intended major at the university or college baccalaureate degree program. To transfer into junior level work in a specific major, students must have completed the common program prerequisites for their selected degree.

Foreign Language

BCC does not have a foreign language requirement. However, the state university system does have a foreign language requirement for admission. Successfully completing two consecutive courses in the same language at the high school or at the community college will satisfy that requirement.

CLAS – College Level Academic Skills

Transfer Student Bill of Rights

Effective July 1, 2011, Florida legislation repealed the use of the College-Level Academic Skills (CLAS) as a degree requirement for those undergraduates seeking an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree or a baccalaureate degree in Florida’s public colleges and universities.

Students who graduate from Florida colleges (previously known as community colleges) with an A.A. degree are guaranteed the following rights under the Statewide Articulation Agreement (State Board of Education Rule 6A10.024): 1. 2. 3.

4. 5. 6. 7. 8.

Grade Forgiveness

Admission to one of the 11 state universities, except to limited access programs; Acceptance of at least 60 semester hours by the state universities; Adherence to the university requirements, based on the catalog in effect at the time the student first enters a Florida college, provided the student maintains continuous enrollment; Transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course Numbering System; Acceptance by the state universities of credits earned in accelerated programs (e.g., CLEP, Dual Enrollment, AP, IB, and AICE); No additional general education requirements; Advance knowledge of selection criteria for limited access programs; and Equal opportunity with native university students to enter limited access programs.

A course repeated after the conferral of the A.A. degree at BCC may not be used to forgive the equivalent course taken prior to the award of the degree.

Excess Hours Advisory Statement

Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes, establishes an “excess hour” surcharge for a student seeking a baccalaureate degree at a state university. It is critical that students, including those entering Florida colleges, are aware of the potential for additional course fees. “Excess hours” are defined as hours that go beyond 115% of the hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, if the length of the program is 120 credit hours, the student may be subject to an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 138 credit hours (115 x 120%). All students whose educational plan may include earning a bachelor’s degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully complete those courses that are required for their intended major on their first attempt. Florida college students intending to transfer to a state university should identify a major or “transfer program” early and be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and/or repeats, as well as enrollment in courses nonessential to the intended major, may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge. –Published by Florida College System, July 1, 2011

Should any guarantee be denied, students have the right to appeal at the college level. If the denial is upheld at the college level and there is still a question of potential violation of the Statewide Articulation Agreement, the student may contact the Office of Articulation for assistance. The Office of Articulation, in consultation with the Articulation Coordinating Committee, will review and attempt to resolve all student transfer difficulties.

Career/Tech

CAREER AND TECHNICAL PROGRAMS www.brevardcc.edu/careertech Career & Technical Programs are college credit programs designed to meet student career goals and workforce needs. Brevard Community College offers over 80 innovative career and technical college credit programs. Each program is taught by experienced faculty from the career areas. Career and technical courses connect real-world application with theory and many courses involve hands-on learning. Associate in Science (A.S.) degrees can be completed in as short as two years.

It is very important that students meet with an academic advisor to carefully plan their schedule to target completion of the A.S. or A.A.S. degree program. Certain programs require students to complete technical courses in a specific sequence to ensure learning is maximized. Also, courses in A.S. and A.A.S. degree program may only be offered on certain campuses and/or may be offered only during a specific semester. Both technical degree and vocational programs are developed and maintained with assistance from technical advisory committees. These committees are made up of experts from local companies or organizations. The committees are actively involved in reviewing the curriculum, equipment, and facilities, and preparing recommendations that assist the college in keeping programs state of the art.

An A.S. to B.A.S. articulation agreement from the University of Central Florida regional campuses is in effect to provide students with an A.S. degree transition option to a Bachelor’s of Applied Science. View details at http://regionalcampuses.ucf.edu/program/applied-science College Credit Certificates (C.C.C.) can be completed in two to four semesters. Certificate courses are specific to the technical career and provide students with an opportunity to receive training and earn a college certificate. Postsecondary Adult Vocational (P.S.A.V.) Certificates provide students with a concentration of courses designed to focus on industry skills.

General Education Requirements:

Depending on the program, the courses to be taken as the General Education portion of the degree may be exactly specified or may allow students to select from a set of preapproved courses. Equivalent honors-level courses may be used in any area.

Program Specialists are available to provide students with assistance in course planning and career preparation. Day, evening and online classes are available. Financial Aid is available for most programs.

WRITTEN COMMUNICATIONS: 3 credits required ENC 1101 Communications 1 COMPUTATION: 3 math credits required It is important to follow the program requirements. Some programs have specific math requirements which must be met for graduation.

A.S. and A.A.S. Degrees

Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree programs are designed for students who plan to enter employment as technicians or semiprofessionals, or students who are employed and plan to use their educational experiences to advance in their career. The designation of A.S. or A.A.S. is based upon Florida Statutes: both degrees are designed to provide skills necessary to enter the workforce.

Note: All A.S. and A.A.S. students must achieve college level mathematics competency by completing all required preparatory courses, even if their program allows the use of a natural science course. MAT 1033 Intermediate Algebra or higher Choose from courses listed under Section II: Mathematics in the Associate in Arts list Or COMPUTATION/NATURAL SCIENCE: 3 credits required Choose from courses listed under Section II. Mathematics or Section III. Science in the Associate in Arts list

A.S. and A.A.S. programs require a minimum of two years of study. Programs contain a minimum of 15 credit hours of General Education and a minimum of 45 credit hours of career specific courses. The General Education courses are designed to provide students with the general knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a technical work environment. More details on the General Education courses can be found in this section. The career-specific courses have been developed to provide students with the knowledge, skills, and competencies required for initial employment. These courses are divided into program specific groupings such as Major Courses, Core Courses and Support Courses. In addition, some programs allow students to select one or more courses from a list of approved Technical Electives.

ORAL COMMUNICATIONS: 3 credits required SPC 2608 Fundamentals of Speech Communications HUMANITIES REQUIREMENT: 3 credits required Unless otherwise specified, choose from courses listed under Section IV. HUMANITIES in the Associate in Arts list SOCIAL/BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE: 3 credits required Unless otherwise specified, choose from courses listed under Section V.

Graduation Requirements for the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and the Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree

A.S./A.A.S. Degree

Responsibility for meeting the requirements for graduation rests with the student. The Associate in Science degree and the Associate in Applied Science degree is awarded to those students who have: 1. Satisfactorily completed a prescribed course of study that totals at least 60 hours and satisfactorily completed all courses within the student's selected program. 2. Satisfy entry assessment requirements and/or complete with a grade of “S” or better all required college-preparatory courses in reading, writing, and mathematics. 3. Completed at least 25% of the program credit hours through coursework at Brevard Community College. 4. Achieved a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or higher in all college work attempted. An "I" received in term of graduation is calculated as an "F" grade for purposes of computing the student's GPA for graduation. If the course work is completed within three weeks of the beginning of the following term, resulting in a passing grade, the student's transcript will be amended and a final GPA calculated. 5. Filed an ‘Intent to Graduate’ Application on or before the published deadline. This includes an advisor's signature and the payment of graduation fee. 6. Submitted all outstanding transcripts and removed all financial obligations to the college. Final transcript and diploma will not be released until student has removed all financial obligations to the college.

Student Insurance Requirements Participation in selected program/courses requires insurance coverage. BCC does not sell insurance; however, the college does use its purchasing capability to identify various student insurance plans to meet student needs. Information regarding various insurance plans is available in the campus Admissions and Records Office. Programs/courses that require insurance appear on the listing below: Student Accident Insurance – Required Aerospace Air Conditioning, Refrigeration & Heating Technology Apprenticeship Automotive Service Technology Continuing Education Correctional Officer Correctional Probation Officer Cosmetology Facials Specialty Nails Specialty Dental Assisting Technology and Management Dental Hygiene Emergency Medical Services Emergency Medical Technician Fire Fighter 1 Fire Fighter-Minimum Standards Law Enforcement Officer Medical Assisting Medical Clinical Laboratory Technician

The “COMPUTER PROGRAMS – CORE COURSES” provide training in basic concepts, which underlie computing technology, computer programming, database techniques, analysis and design, and common user applications. These courses are common to all the computer A.S. degrees. The computer languages are introduced gradually, starting with structured programming (sequential, iteration, and decision making) used in procedural languages and then progressing to object oriented languages and visual languages. Students currently employed in the field can supplement and upgrade their skills through a variety of offerings in programming languages and applications. Technical electives provide students with the opportunity to further their knowledge in the specific area of choice.

Crime scene technologists are employed by local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, the State Attorney Offices, public defender offices, medical examiners, law firms, and private industry. This program is designed to prepare an entry-level crime scene specialist who will be able to locate, identify, process, and preserve the crime scene as well as testify in court proceedings. This program is also appropriate for practicing law enforcement professionals who desire the opportunity to specialize and advance in the field of crime scene technology. Potential employment opportunities may be found as a crime scene technologist, crime scene photographer, fingerprint examiner and classification specialist, crime lab assistant, or crime scene unit supervisor.

The “Desktop Applications Programming” option is designed to prepare students for developing stand-alone applications that are primarily run on single-user platforms (e.g., desktop or laptop computers). Students will learn to develop client-server applications that utilize a three-tier architecture that consists of a graphical user interface (GUI) front-end tier, business logic middle-tier, and a database back-end tier.

Individuals considering enrollment must have excellent written and oral communication skills and reading and critical thinking skills. Basic computer skills, including keyboarding, are strongly recommended prior to enrollment.

The “Web Applications Programming” is designed to prepare students for developing Web applications. Many Web applications use similar three tier architecture as described for the “Desktop Applications Programming” option. The primary differences are that the front-endtier is a Web browser and the middle-tier is a Web server. Students will learn to program both client side and server side applications for both proprietary as well as Open Source environments. Typical entry-level positions for graduates of the program include Junior Web Developer.

FLORIDA’S STATEWIDE COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM systems. For example, 4.0 quarter hours often transfers as 2.67 semester hours.

Courses in this catalog are identified by prefixes and numbers that were assigned by Florida’s Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS). This numbering system is used by all public postsecondary institutions in Florida and 28 participating non-public institutions. The major purpose of this system is to facilitate the transfer of courses between participating institutions. Students and administrators can use the online Statewide Course Numbering System to obtain course descriptions and specific information about course transfer between participating Florida institutions. This information is at the SCNS website at http://scns.fldoe.org.

The Course Prefix The course prefix is a three-letter designator for a major division of an academic discipline, subject matter area, or sub-category of knowledge. The prefix is not intended to identify the department in which a course is offered. Rather, the content of a course determines the assigned prefix to identify the course. Authority for Acceptance of Equivalent Courses Section 1007.24(7), Florida Statutes, states: Any student who transfers among postsecondary institutions that are fully accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education and that participate in the statewide course numbering system shall be awarded credit by the receiving institution for courses satisfactorily completed by the student at the previous institutions. Credit shall be awarded if the courses are judged by the appropriate statewide course numbering system faculty committees representing school districts, public postsecondary educational institutions, and participating nonpublic postsecondary educational institutions to be academically equivalent to courses offered at the receiving institution, including equivalency of faculty credentials, regardless of the public or nonpublic control of the previous institution. The Department of Education shall ensure that credits to be accepted by a receiving institution are generated in courses for which the faculty possess credentials that are comparable to those required by the accrediting association of the receiving institution. The award of credit may be limited to courses that are entered in the statewide course numbering system. Credits awarded pursuant to this subsection shall satisfy institutional requirements on the same basis as credits awarded to native students.

Each participating institution controls the title, credit, and content of its own courses and recommends the first digit of the course number to indicate the level at which students normally take the course. Course prefixes and the last three digits of the course numbers are assigned by members of faculty discipline committees appointed for that purpose by the Florida Department of Education in Tallahassee. Individuals nominated to serve on these committees are selected to maintain a representative balance as to type of institution and discipline field or specialization. The course prefix and each digit in the course number have a meaning in the Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS). The list of course prefixes and num bers, along with their generic titles, is referred to as the “SCNS taxonomy.” Descriptions of the content of courses are referred to as “statewide course profiles.” Example of Course Identifier Prefix

Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency Since the initial implementation of the SCNS, specific disciplines or types of courses have been accepted from the guarantee of transfer for equivalent courses. These include varying topics courses that must be evaluated individually, or applied courses in which the student must be evaluated for mastery of skill and technique. The following courses are exceptions to the general rule for course equivalencies and may not transfer. Transferability is at the discretion of the receiving institution.

General Rule for Course Equivalencies Equivalent courses at different institutions are identified by the same prefixes and same last three digits of the course number and are guaranteed to be transferable between participating institutions that offer the course, with a few exceptions. (Exceptions are listed below.) For example, a freshman composition skills course is offered by 56 different postsecondary institutions. Each institution uses “ENC_101” to identify its freshman composition skills course. The level code is the first digit and represents the year in which students normally take the course at a specific institution. In the SCNS taxonomy, “ENC” means “English Composition,” the century digit “1” represents “Freshman Composition,” the decade digit “0” represents “Freshman Composition Skills,” and t he unit digit “1” represents “Freshman Composition Skills I.”

A. B. C.

D. E. F.

In the sciences and certain other areas, a “ C” or “L” after the course number is known as a lab indicator. T he “C” represents a combined lecture and laboratory course that meets in the same place at the same time. T he “L” represents a laboratory course or the laboratory part of a course, having the same prefix and course number without a lab indicator, which meets at a different time or place.

G.

Transfer of any successfully completed course from one participating institution to another is guaranteed in cases where the course to be transferred is equivalent to one offered by the receiving institution. Equivalencies are established by the same prefix and last three digits and comparable faculty credentials at both institutions. For example, ENC 1101 is offered at a community college. The same course is offered at a state university as ENC 2101. A student who has successfully completed ENC 1101 at the community college is guaranteed to receive transfer credit for ENC 2101 at the state university if the student transfers. The student cannot be r equired to take ENC 2101 again since ENC 1101 is equivalent to ENC 2101. Transfer credit must be awarded for successfully completed equivalent courses and used by the receiving institution to determine satisfaction of requirements by transfer students on the same basis as credit awarded to the native students. It is the prerogative of the receiving institution, however, to offer transfer credit for courses successfully completed that have not been designated as equivalent. NOTE: Credit generated at institutions on the quarter-term system may not transfer the equivalent number of credits to institutions on semester-term Florida’s Statewide Course

102

Courses not offered by the receiving institution. For courses at non-regionally accredited institutions, courses offered prior to the established transfer date of the course in question. Courses in the _900-999 series are not automatically transferable, and must be evaluated individually. These include such courses as Special Topics, Internships, Apprenticeships, Practica, Study Abroad, Thesis and Dissertations. College preparatory and vocational preparatory courses. Graduate courses. Internships, apprenticeships, practica, clinical experiences and study abroad courses with numbers other than those ranging from 900-999. Applied courses in the performing arts (Art, Dance, Interior Design, Music, and Theatre) and skills courses in Criminal Justice (academy certificate courses) are not guaranteed as transferable. These courses need evidence of achievement (i.e., portfolio, audition, interview, etc.)

Courses at Non-regionally Accredited Institutions The Statewide Course Numbering System makes available on its home page (http://scns.fldoe.org) a report entitled “Courses at Nonregionally Accredited Institutions” that contains a comprehensive listing of all nonpublic institution courses in the SCNS inventory, as well as each course’s transfer level and transfer effective date. This report is updated monthly. Questions about the Statewide Course Numbering System and appeals regarding course credit transfer decisions should be directed to the Brevard Community College Office of the Registrar (321) 4337284 or the Florida Department of Education, Office of Articulation, 1401 Turlington Building, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400.
