Classes are offered in a classroom format and certain courses are available by hybrid and by online instruction. Course delivery methods: 1. 2. Traditional - each course meets face to face at a specific time and location. Asynchronous Distance—Internet-based courses that are not time or location specific. A student interacts with the coursework, prepared by an instructor, using the Internet and our Learning Management System named ANGEL. Synchronous Distance—Internet courses that are time but not location specific (i.e., classes are scheduled for a specific time but can be accessed via the Internet). Students interact in real-time with classmates and the instructor using the Internet and a software product called Elluminate. Elluminate allows the students to ask questions either verbally or through text and get responses immediately. Hybrid—a hybrid course involves elements of either the Traditional and the ANGEL delivery methods, the Elluminate and the ANGEL delivery methods, or all three.

Attendance
Class attendance is essential. Cultivation of desirable habits is just as important as the development of skills. Students should be present and on time for all classes. Development of this important habit while in college makes it considerably easier to satisfy employers, who demand regular and punctual attendance. Absence from class involves a loss to both the student and to other members of the class; the student must rush to make up the coursework, and other students have to sit through material being repeated. While circumstances beyond the control of the student may make it impossible for him or her to attend a class, excessive absenteeism or tardiness will result in administrative action. This will result in a later graduation date. Should a student not attend any classes during the first week of the module, the college will take administrative action, which may include termination from the course or program.

Day Program: Classes are regularly scheduled Monday through Thursday. The day class schedule is divided into two periods (8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.) with appropriate scheduled breaks. Hours may vary by campus. Please check with your campus for scheduled hours. The period(s) students are expected to attend class meetings can vary from module to module depending upon the number of courses into which an individual student is scheduled and the delivery method used for that course. Afternoons Monday through Thursday, Friday, or Saturday class meetings may be scheduled as needed for courses and for enrichment, tutoring, advising, and externship or lab activities.

Make-Up Work
Students who have been absent are expected to make up all missed work prior to returning to classes and to proceed with the new course material in the original sequence. Courses are normally delivered by the traditional lecture/lab instructor-led method. In special circumstances, these same courses may be

58

delivered in an alternative style. The Dean or Campus Director may approve a tutorial method of making up a course. The student who is approved for this method will be assigned to a faculty member who will work individually with the student to cover the exact course material presented in a lecture/lab situation. There will be no variance in the content or assignments. No more than 10% of any program may be taken under the make-up method.

Dress Code
Students are required to dress modestly and in appropriate professional dress according to each program. Consult orientation materials for specifics on each program’s dress code. Failure to comply with the program dress code could result in suspension of employment assistance privileges.

Library of research materials Online resource library containing more than 120,000 articles and related materials Current industry periodicals Professional software for training Fully-equipped medical lab including: Phlebotomy kits Microscopes EKG machine Miscellaneous medical supplies Computer lab for individual and group work: Computers Printers Internet access Upon enrollment, all new students, except for I-20 students, receive a laptop to use when class starts and may keep it when they graduate at no additional charge.

Professionalism Grade
Students may receive a separate grade for Professionalism for each course. This is an optional policy. Check with your campus for details. The College’s surveys indicate that employers demand timeliness, excellent attendance, and professional dress and attitude. The Registrar averages all Professionalism grades at the time a student registers for employment assistance. Students are matched to types and number of job openings based upon their professional performance and the standards of the company placing the job order. A grade of C or lower in Professionalism or student conduct resulting in suspension or probation could result in fewer employment leads or suspension of employment assistance privileges.

**PE grades are issued for courses taken by exam. Both PE and IP do not affect the GPA calculation. Professionalism is assigned a grade of A, B, C, D, or F.

Grade Reports
The students can print a report of their grades electronically through the student portal. For purposes of academic progress and graduation, the cumulative GPA from the student transcript is used.

Students in a master’s program must earn a 2.0 or better in master’s level courses in order to graduate. Students in the Associate Degree in Nursing program must achieve an overall average of B- or better in all courses and maintain a GPA of 3.0 or better throughout the program. * See Course Withdrawal section.

Course Withdrawal
A student who withdraws from a course receives a grade of W. A student may officially withdraw by the first Friday at the end of the first week of the module. All courses with a final grade of W are considered attempted credits and will be charged tuition accordingly. PELL and SEOG can be awarded for courses given a grade of W. Since a grade of W is counted as credit hours attempted but not completed, it will adversely affect a student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress (See Standards of Satisfactory Progress). A grade of W does not affect the student’s cumulative GPA. A grade of W may only be issued in the following circumstances: • A student has attended at least one day of the class during the first week of the module and then formally withdraws with the Registrar before the end of the first week of the module. • A student has attended beyond the first week of the module, is in good standing (good attendance and passing grades), and is forced to withdraw due to extenuating circumstances which are limited to verified medical problems (either with the student or his or her immediate family), military obligations, jury duty, or death in the family that causes extended hardship. If a student attends beyond the first week of the module and then withdraws for reasons other than those listed above, a grade of F will be issued. An F grade academically lowers the student’s grade point average and adversely affects the student’s academic progress.

Program Withdrawal Program Withdrawal – SHC
Students who find it necessary to withdraw from a program should have an interview with the Associate Dean of his/her program or the Director of Student Services. The student is also required to have an exit interview with a representative of the Financial Aid Office. This is the date of determination. Or, if a student provides notice of withdrawal in writing, the date on which the notice is mailed with appropriate postage is the date of determination. Finally, a student may call and notify the school of withdrawal; this date is the date of determination. In such a case, documentation is required, along with the name of the College representative with whom the student spoke, the date of the phone call, and the reason for leaving school.

60

When a student does not contact the school to withdraw, the date of determination is the fifth day of the module during which he or she does not attend school.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Measurements
Students must progress satisfactorily toward meeting graduation requirements. The academic progress of each student will be reviewed at the required evaluation points below and at least once every academic year after the first. An academic year is defined as two terms of four modules each, or 32 weeks. At each evaluation point, the student must have completed 67% of the credits attempted. A student’s progress toward graduation is considered satisfactory if the following minimum GPA requirements are met. Required Evaluation Point Minimum GPA with 67% of Credits Attempted Completed

Program Withdrawal – CollegeAmerica AZ/CO/WY and California College San Diego
Students who find it necessary to withdraw from a program should have an interview with one of the following: Dean, Dean of Students, Registrar, Dean of Continuing Education, or Associate Dean of their program. The student is also required to have an exit interview with a representative of the Financial Aid Office. If a student provides notice of withdrawal in writing, the date on which the notice is mailed with appropriate postage is the date of withdrawal.

Dismissal
Student termination may result from unsatisfactory academic progress, unsatisfactory course completion, failure to achieve the appropriate proficiency level within the prescribed timeframe, use of controlled substances on campus, conduct detrimental to the College, failure to comply with financial aid regulations, or non-observance of other student regulations. A student who is dismissed may appeal to the Campus Director of the College, who will make the final determination. CollegeAmerica and California College San Diego: Students will be automatically terminated from the College, without a right to appeal, after 14 consecutive days of non-attendance. However, the student will be allowed to petition for readmission.

Nursing students will satisfactorily perform all nursing skills as measured on skills assessment forms, receive favorable evaluations by faculty and instructors, and receive the passing score on REACH exams according to individual nursing course requirements. To be eligible for graduation and complete the ADN program, nursing students must achieve a minimal score of 900 on the final Reach Exit Exam.

Readmission
Readmission to the College following dismissal or withdrawal will be at the sole discretion of the College. Students whose enrollment has been terminated may petition the Campus Director or the Dean in writing for reinstatement. The written request should contain a summary of why the student feels he or she should be readmitted. The Campus Director or Dean shall review all requests on a case-by-case basis. Extenuating circumstances will be taken into consideration. However, the College reserves the right to refuse to readmit any student who does not meet the College’s academic or behavioral standards.

Maximum Time Frame
Students must complete their program within one and one half times the credit hours required to complete the program. Students must complete 67% of their credits attempted in each evaluation period in order to meet satisfactory academic progress standards. The student must complete the program within the maximum time frame in order to graduate.

61

Probation
To ensure a student’s success in a program, grades are reviewed by the Dean at the end of each evaluation point. If a student is in danger of falling below the required standards of progress, the student is advised. A student is placed on probation if he or she fails to meet either or both the maximum time frame and the cumulative GPA at the evaluation points. If a student fails to meet the minimum requirements at the end of the next evaluation point, federal financial aid cannot be disbursed unless an appeal is approved by the Dean. The appeal for mitigating circumstances must be made in writing by the student. However, if the student does not appeal or an appeal is not approved, the student’s enrollment may be terminated. Students may petition for re-entry based upon extenuating circumstances; the decision of the Campus Director is final. However, a student may self-pay for tuition and expenses until such time the student meets either or both the maximum time frame and the cumulative GPA requirements. If the student is successful in improving completion of courses within the maximum time frame and cumulative GPA to the minimum requirement at that increment or an appeal is approved, financial aid may be reinstated. If the student is unsuccessful, he or she is dismissed and is not allowed re-entry to the College. While on probation, a student receives tutoring and regular academic assessment and is urged to apply himself or herself to again attain satisfactory academic progress. California College San Diego only: Due to licensure requirements for the respiratory therapy profession, respiratory therapy students must achieve a C (75%) or better in their core RES courses, and a cumulative grade of C (75%) or better for the entirety of the program for satisfactory progress. Respiratory therapy students will be placed on academic probation if they fall below this level at the evaluation points.

Appeal
A student has the right to appeal a determination that he or she is not making satisfactory progress. The appeal must be in writing and should be submitted to the dean within seven days of the unsatisfactory progress determination. The decision of the dean is final.

Extenuating Circumstances
The College may waive interim satisfactory standards for extenuating circumstances. Circumstances must be documented, and it must be demonstrated by the student that such mitigating circumstances have had an adverse impact on satisfactory progress. Documentation is provided to financial aid when approving such a student to continue receiving financial aid funds.

Re-establishing Eligibility for Federal Funds
If a student is allowed to return to the College after being dismissed for unsatisfactory progress, he or she may reenter and must meet the above requirements before receiving Title IV aid. The student must make financial arrangements with the College to pay for courses while reestablishing eligibility for federal funds. Once the student has met the requirements listed above, Title IV aid will be reinstated. If the student does not meet the satisfactory progress requirements during the probationary period of one academic year, he or she will be dismissed from the College. The student may appeal the decision for dismissal in writing for mitigating circumstances.

Satisfactory Progress Verification
When financial aid electronic disbursement rosters are received, the financial aid officer at Central Financial Aid (CFA) quickly checks that the student is eligible for the disbursement. If the student does not have the required time and credits, it is so documented on the student’s academic record. The Director of Financial Aid at CFA is fully responsible and accountable for verifying and documenting that the student is entitled to the funds by checking the required time and credits correlating to satisfactory progress.

Incompletes
Incomplete grades are counted as credits attempted and affect maximum time frame, but do not affect the grade point average. An incomplete (I) grade may be issued to a student who is passing a course but who has not completed all required work. The student will be allowed four weeks to complete the coursework. When the coursework is completed, a grade will be issued for the course. If the work is not completed during the allotted time, the incomplete (I) will revert to an “F”. When calculating the GPA for purposes of determining satisfactory progress, an incomplete (I) is equivalent to an “F”. The student accumulates no quality points for the course, but the number of credits assigned to the course is included in the total number of credit hours attempted. If the incomplete prevents a student from meeting graduation requirements, the student will be eligible for employment assistance services.

Standards of Progress for Veterans
Veterans or eligible persons are evaluated monthly to determine satisfactory progress. A veteran or eligible person whose grade point average falls below 2.0 will be placed on probation for unsatisfactory progress and shall be terminated if his or her GPA remains below 2.0 at the end of the next grading period. If the veteran or eligible person is allowed to remain on probation beyond this period, he or she will have all veterans’ benefits discontinued.

Non-credit Remedial Courses
Non-credit remedial courses do not affect satisfactory academic progress. The student does not earn an academic grade, nor is the non-credit remedial course counted toward the maximum time frame.

62

Occupational Standards
The college must terminate any student who is unable to satisfactorily achieve the knowledge and skills required by the occupation for which the training is intended.

8.

Pass the National Board of Respiratory Care’s Registered Respiratory Therapy (RRT) exam (for the Bachelor’s of Respiratory Therapy students only).

Degrees/Diplomas Granted
Upon fulfillment of the graduation requirements, the student will be issued the appropriate degree, indicating satisfactory completion and passing of all program requirements. The Colleges offer programs leading to an Associate of Occupational Studies degree, an Associate of Applied Science degree, an academic Bachelor of Science degree, and a Master’s degree. Students should check with the campus of choice to see what degrees are available. CollegeAmerica Arizona only: Upon fulfillment of the graduation requirements, the student will be issued the appropriate degree, indicating satisfactory completion and passing of all program requirements. CollegeAmerica offers programs leading to an Associate of Occupational Studies degree, an Associate’s degree, or a Bachelor of Science degree. CollegeAmerica also offers a diploma program for non-high school graduates only.

Prerequisite Courses
If a student fails a course that is a prerequisite for another course, the student must successfully complete the course before continuing in the program. If a student fails a course that is not a prerequisite for another course, the student may continue in the program and repeat the course at a later date, provided that the maximum time frame standards are not exceeded.

Course Repetitions
Programs are not designed to facilitate course repetitions due to the short, fast-paced, and intense nature of the coursework. If a student fails a course or earns a grade in a course below a “D-” (B for Nursing courses, C for Respiratory Therapy courses), that course could be repeated, provided it is offered again within the maximum time frame. The Dean or Program Director must approve all course repetitions. The College does not replace grades when a course is repeated. Each attempt at the course is recorded on the student’s transcript and both grades are reflected in the cumulative GPA. Each attempt at the course would be counted as a “course attempted” in the calculations for successful course completion and maximum time frame. Repeating a course in a program will result in the assessment of tuition charges at the current credit hour rate.

Graduation Honors
A student may graduate with honors as follows: Summa Cum Laude for graduating with a 3.91 cumulative GPA. Magna Cum Laude for graduating with a cumulative GPA between 3.76 and 3.90 Cum Laude for graduating with a cumulative GPA between 3.50 and 3.75.

Graduation Requirements and Awards
To be eligible for graduation, students must meet the following requirements: 1. Pass with a D- grade or higher all core and non-core courses (except for master’s courses, Nursing courses, and core Respiratory Therapy courses). Attain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (3.0 for Nursing students and Master’s students, 75% for Respiratory Therapy students). Pass the number of credit hours required for the program within the maximum time frame. Satisfy all financial obligations. Pass the National Board of Respiratory Care’s Comprehensive/Secure Written Registry Self-Assessment Exam (Respiratory Therapy students only). Pass the NCLEX-RN examination (Nursing students only). Attempt National Board of Respiratory Care’s Certified Respiratory Therapy (CRT) exam (Respiratory Therapy students only).

Scheduling
Courses are scheduled so that students should be able to complete all program requirements on time unless the student fails courses, fails to achieve core requirements, or withdraws and re-enters. Students with transfer credits may experience disruptions in their schedule. If any of these circumstances occur, the College will make every effort to schedule the student with a full schedule each module; however, courses will not be scheduled simply to facilitate the student who has interrupted his or her schedule. Students are urged to do everything possible not to interrupt their schedule.

Credit Transfer from Another College
Credits from other institutions which are accredited by an agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education may transfer when the course submitted for consideration is of comparable scope and content to the campus’s own courses. International credits will be reviewed on an individual basis. Transfer of credit is at the judgment and discretion of the Dean and/or the Campus

6. 7.

63

Director. The maximum transfer credits allowable from other institutions are: To associate’s degree programs: No more than 25% of the credits may be transferred. Tuition will be adjusted accordingly. Transferred credits must be C- or better except in the Nursing prerequisite courses, which must be B- or better. Nursing courses are generally not transferrable. A grade of C is required for Respiratory Therapy credits. Core technical courses must be earned within the past 8 years, and general education courses have no time limit. To a bachelor’s degree program (not bachelor’s completion degree programs): No more than 50% of the credits may be transferred. Tuition will be adjusted accordingly. Transferred credits must be C- or better (B- for nursing and C for Respiratory Therapy). Core courses must be earned within the past 8 years, and general education courses have no time limit. To master’s degree programs (from other accredited master’s degree programs): No more than 25% of the credits may be transferred. Tuition will be adjusted accordingly. Transferred credits must be B- or better and will be accepted as long as the degree was earned from an accredited institution. Applicants enrolling into the master’s degree program must have earned a baccalaureate degree in an associated field which will be recognized as long as it was earned from an accredited institution whose accrediting agency is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. There is no time limit for bachelor’s degrees which are applied to the master’s program. All transferred core courses must be earned within the past 8 years. TRANSFER CREDIT PROCESS The applicant must supply a college syllabus, catalog, or course description and an official transcript(s) for transfer of credit to occur. COURSE NUMBERING Generally, 100- and 200-level courses are for associate’s-level work, 300- and 400-level courses are for bachelor’s-level work, and 500- and 600-level courses are for master’s-level work. In transferring in credits, no 100- and 200-level courses may be used to satisfy our 300- and 400- or 500- and 600-level courses. However, 300- and 400- or 500- and 600-level courses for another accredited institution may be used to satisfy 100- and 200-level courses at our institution if the course descriptions are similar. COURSE CREDITS A sufficient number of credits earned from the transferring institution must equal the credits we grant for a course. Example: a sociology course transferred to us must be 4 quarter credits or 3 semester credits to satisfy our sociology course requirements. (Semester credits x 1.5 = quarter credits). TRANSCRIPT Grades of transferred courses from other institutions (must be Cand higher) are recorded as a “P” grade and do not contribute to quality points in calculating the student’s cumulative GPA at our colleges. CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS/SEMINARS Credits for Continuing Education Units (CEUs) or seminars may not be transferred to satisfy courses at our colleges. A student who has continuing education units and/or seminars in courses scheduled in the student’s program, may challenge the course by

passing the examination with a score of 90% or greater. If the student passes the examination, the student will receive a grade of PE on his or her transcript. CLEP, DANTES, AP, AND CERTIFICATION CREDIT The college may award credit to students who score at or above established levels on College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), Defense Activities for Non-traditional Education Support (DANTES) examinations, Advanced Placement (AP), and college recognized certifications (i.e., Cisco, Microsoft, A+, etc.). Some core courses may not be transferable (i.e., medical clinical core courses). Information regarding specific CLEP, DANTES, and AP equivalents/scores may be obtained from the Dean or Campus Director. Tuition is adjusted accordingly.

Credit Transfer to Other Colleges
Graduates or students who are considering transferring from the college to other institutions should recognize that programs at the college are specifically tailored to career preparation. Courses that make up such programs are not generally transferable to other colleges, particularly in programs that emphasize general or liberal education. It should also be noted that in any transfer situation, regardless of the colleges involved, the acceptance of credits is at the sole discretion of the accepting college and this college makes no representations whatsoever concerning the transferability of any college credits to any other institution. The college credits generally are not transferable to other colleges unless a written articulation agreement between the college and another institution has been negotiated. See the director of admissions or the Campus Director for details of any articulation agreements. California College San Diego only: NOTICE CONCERNING TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDITS AND CREDENTIALS EARNED AT OUR INSTITUTION The transferability of credits you earn at CCSD is at the complete discretion of an institution to which you may seek to transfer. Acceptance of the degree, diploma, or certificate you earn in any of our programs is also at the complete discretion of the institution to which you may seek to transfer. If the credits or degree, diploma, or certificate that you earn at this institution are not accepted at the institution to which you seek to transfer, you may be required to repeat some or all of your coursework at that institution. For this reason you should make certain that your attendance at this institution will meet your educational goals. This may include contacting an institution to which you may seek to transfer after attending CCSD to determine if your credits or degree, diploma or certificate will transfer.

Credit Transfer from Affiliated Colleges
Graduates or students who are transferring within the affiliated college system will have their credits automatically accepted. Graduates of associate’s degree programs within the affiliated college system may transfer credits to an applicable full bachelor’s degree, not a bachelor’s completion degree. The same grade requirements as for students transferring credits from outside the system apply.

64

When a student transfers from one affiliated campus to another, grades, grade point averages (GPA), and satisfactory academic progress (SAP) status transfer with the student. In other words, if a student is on academic probation and transfers from one campus to another, the student will remain on academic probation. Likewise, a student who transfers from one campus to another with a GPA that warrants honor status will retain that status at his or her new campus.

Transcript Policy
Students may receive two official transcripts at no charge. Students may apply for additional transcripts for a $5 charge each.

Credit Transfer for Veterans
The College maintains a written record of the previous education and training of veterans or eligible persons. No more than 25% of a transfer student’s prior academic work will be accepted towards a degree, with the training period shortened proportionately. The veteran or eligible person will be notified of prior credit granted.

Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974
In compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act, which became law on November 19, 1974, Stevens-Henager College hereby notifies all students of their rights in connection with educational records maintained by the College. All students are entitled to review their educational records maintained by the College by making a request to the Campus Director. Within forty-five (45) days after the request is made, the educational records of the student will be made available to the student. If the student believes that information in the educational records is inaccurate or misleading or violates the privacy or other rights of the student, the student may request that the College amend the records. If the College refuses to amend the educational records of the student, the College will inform the student of the right to a hearing to seek the correction of information in the educational records. At the hearing, the student will be afforded an opportunity to present evidence that is relevant to the issues, and the student may be assisted or represented by an individual of his or her choice at his or her own expense, including an attorney. The decision of the College shall be based solely upon the evidence presented at the hearing. If, as a result of the hearing, the student believes that the information is not accurate, is misleading, or otherwise is in violation of the privacy or other rights of the student, the student has the right to place in the educational records a statement commenting upon the information in the education records and/or setting forth any reasons for disagreeing with the decision of the College. The College maintains student records on the campus premises for a period of not less than five years. The College maintains student transcripts in perpetuity.

Credit by Examination
Students may wish to challenge out of a course by taking a competency examination. To successfully pass a challenge exam the student must score 90% or better on the final test. The college may award credit to students who pass the college challenge exam in a specific course. The student must challenge the course and the test must be completed and scored before or during the first day of the module. Credit received will be treated similar to transfer credit (with a grade of PE being assigned to the course). Tuition adjustment will be made for Pass by Examination. California College San Diego only: A grade may be earned as a result of taking a challenge examination (PE grade) and passing with 90% or better. GPA is not affected by PE grades. Financial aid cannot be issued for a grade of PE. The notation of IP (In Progress, Passing) will be posted for students who have obtained passing grades at the end of the first month of a two-month course. An IP grade is a placeholder for partial courses and is not part of the GPA calculation since a grade is not earned until the end of the two-month course. Satisfactory progress and successful course completion is not affected by the PE grade or the IP grade. Due to licensure requirements for the respiratory therapy profession, respiratory therapy students must achieve 75% or better in their core RES courses, and a cumulative score of 75% or better for the entirety of the program. Respiratory therapy students should see the Registrar or the Respiratory Therapy Program Director for complete details.

Financial Information Tuition and Fees
No out-of-state tuition requirements apply. A $75 deposit is required of all high school students enrolling in the College. The deposit will be applied to the tuition charges and is nonrefundable. Beginning January 18, 2010, tuition charges for all new students who start classes and for all existing students who have been enrolled in the college since March 2007 ranges from $312 to $505 per quarter credit. Tuition for associate’s degree programs is $38,400, except for Respiratory Therapy, which is $44,895 and Nursing, which is $53,300.

Tuition
All students must make payment arrangements with the Financial Aid Office in advance of attending classes. All payment arrangements for an unpaid balance must be made with the Financial Aid Office at the end of the student’s program. The student must be credit-worthy to qualify for electronic withdrawal plans or for private-market loans. For those students who qualify for federal financial aid, electronic payments are ordered from the lenders and from FAME by Central Financial Aid on the dates students qualify for their funds. Students can expect the college to increase, at least once during any calendar year, the tuition for courses and programs offered by the college. Students are counseled about repayment of financial aid during the mandatory entrance and exit interview. If an amount is due at the time the student graduates or withdraws, the balance is due in full at that time unless satisfactory payment arrangements have been made with the Financial Aid Office. If the student fails to make a payment within 15 days of the due date, the balance will be due in full and the account will be turned over to a collections agency. The student agrees to pay any collection fees up to and including court costs and reasonable attorney fees. Cash discounts are not given for early payment of fees or tuition. If a student has a balance, a hold will be placed on his/her account and diplomas or official transcripts will not be released

Funding Tuition
A variety of financial plans are available for those students who qualify for financial aid. These plans include a combination of student loans, grants, scholarships, and payment plans. The variety of available plans affords flexibility in choosing the one best suited for a specific need. The college offers individual financial planning sessions for each student and family. The college participates in the Title IV Federal Financial Aid Program that includes Federal Pell Grants, Federal ACG and SMART grants, Federal Stafford Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loans, Federal Parent Loans for Undergraduate Study, the Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant, and the Federal Direct Student Lending program. All students must have an appointment with the Finance Department prior to starting school to arrange payment of tuition. Prospective students may request a Student Financial Aid Guide, a Financial Aid Consumer Information packet and other pertinent information and forms from the Finance Department. Private loans, scholarships, and electronic tuition payments are available to students to cover the cost of tuition as follows. The College will work with any bank that the student wishes to use for student loans, in addition to those banks and programs listed below. Please see the local campus Financial Aid office for information about specific lenders. California College San Diego only: If a student obtains a loan to pay for an educational program, the student will have the responsibility to repay the full amount of the loan plus interest, less the amount of any refund. If the student has received federal student financial aid funds, the student is entitled to a refund of the monies not paid from federal student financial aid program funds. Sallie Mae: This is a credit-based loan, and a student may elect to make interest-only payments while in college. The interest rate is based on the individual’s credit rating. Payments are sent directly to the lender or electronically to the campus. Selected/Key Bank/Wells Fargo/CitiBank: These are creditbased loans and generally repayment begins six months after leaving the program. There is no pre-payment penalty. Interest for this loan is based on the individual’s credit rating. The payments are sent directly to the lender or electronically to the campus. Nelnet Business Solutions (FACTS): A convenient budget plan that uses an automatic payment plan to help a student meet educational expenses. It is not a loan; therefore the student has no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget monthly payments is a $25 per semester or a $45 annual nonrefundable enrollment fee. The enrollment fee is automatically deducted from a student’s account within 14 days of the enrollment agreement being posted to the system. The tuition payment is automatically deducted on the fifth of each month from a checking or savings account. Other rules apply. Please see the Financial Aid Office for more information. Tuition Options (formerly NLSC): This is an institutional program. The student must have been denied for private loans through Sallie Mae or a selected bank to use this funding option. The first payment is due 30 days after starting college. Interest charged is the same rate as charged on Stafford Loans with a minimum of 6%. If students make payments pursuant to an installment plan, a separate installment contract will be entered.

Refund Policy – California College San Diego ONLY
A student has the right to withdraw from the college at any time. A refund will be based on the Institution’s Refund Policy. California College San Diego complies with state and federal refund policies. You may cancel enrollment for any reason up until midnight of the first day of classes in the first academic year, or seven days after enrollment, whichever is the longer, and the college will refund any monies paid minus an administrative fee of $150 and any charges for books and uniforms issued. Thereafter, you may terminate your enrollment by giving written notice to the college. Such notice is effective when the college receives the notice. The written notice of cancellation need not take any particular form, and however expressed, is effective if it shows you no longer wish to be bound by the enrollment agreement. You have the right to withdraw at any time, by notifying the college, in writing, at the address on the enrollment agreement. If you withdraw after midnight of the first day of classes in the first academic year, or seven days after enrollment, whichever is the longer, the college will remit a refund within forty-five (45) days of your withdrawal. The refund shall be determined by pro-rating the amount paid for instruction. If the withdrawal date is after the completion of more than 60% of the period of enrollment, no refund is due. This initial amount, plus any equipment charges paid by you, will be reduced by the cost of any equipment that is not returned in usable condition within thirty (30) days. Refunds are calculated using two methods (when the withdrawal record involves federal financial aid funds, the Return of Title IV takes priority and must be observed before any other refund calculation). The school then calculates the state refund policy. The Return of Title IV, as defined by the 1998 Amendments to the Higher Education Act of 1965, applies to any student receiving federal financial aid and who withdraws on or before 60% of the calendar days to the end of the period of enrollment or payment period. The percentage of Title IV that has been earned is equal to the percentage of payment period or period of enrollment that the student completed by the withdrawal date (documented last day of attendance or the date of determination). If the withdrawal date is after the completion of more than 60% of the period of enrollment, the student has earned 100% of the Title IV funds. If the amount of Title IV that the student has earned (as calculated) is less than the amount of Title IV that was disbursed, the difference must be returned within 45 days to the appropriate program. No additional disbursements will follow.

Return of Title IV Funds
If a student receives Title IV student financial assistance (Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Grants, Federal Family Education Loans, ACG or SMART grants), special rules apply when a student withdraws or is terminated. These rules are independent of the institution’s refund policy. Thus, there may be cases where the institution is required by the government to return Title IV funds even though such funds are needed to pay the student’s institutional charges. In all cases, the student remains responsible for paying institutional charges as determined by the refund policy. For the purpose of determining the amount you owe for the time you attended, you shall be deemed to have withdrawn from a course when any of the following occurs: a. b. You notify the college of your withdrawal, or The college terminates you.

many credits the student started. If the student started 18 credits, or more, in the term, no reduction is necessary. If the student started 13.5 credits, but less than 18 credits, the Pell Grant is reduced to 3/4 time. If the student started 9 credits, but less than 13.5 credits, the Pell Grant is reduced to 1/2 time. If the student started less than 9 credits, the Pell Grant is reduced to less than 1/2 time. In all cases, once any such adjustment of the Pell Grant has been made, the institutional refund policy will be applied. If a student withdraws during the first module of a term without completing that module, the student’s Pell Grant, if any, will be reduced as indicated above, and then the Federal Return of Title IV Funds policy will be applied to the remaining amount of Federal Student Aid that was disbursed or could have been disbursed. The amount the student has earned is based on a fraction, the numerator of which is the number of days the student was carried on the rolls from the beginning of the term until the date of determination, and the denominator of which is the number of days in the term, including weekends and holidays but not including any break of five days or more. This fraction is then multiplied by the dollar amount of Federal Student Aid which was disbursed or could have been disbursed, to arrive and the dollar amount of Federal Student Aid the student has earned. The school will then return to the Federal government the amount that the student did not earn, will apply the institutional refund policy, and will bill the student for any amount the student owes the school.

Refunds will be paid within 45 days from the date of determination. Any credit granted for the prior education or training shall not impact this refund policy. Refund calculations are complex. For further information and examples, read the catalog and visit the College’s Financial Aid Office.

Earning and Returning Title IV Funds
Special rules apply for withdrawals of certain Title IV federal student aid recipients. (Title IV aid includes Federal Pell Grants, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants, Federal Stafford Loans, and Federal PLUS Loans.) SHC: If a student officially withdraws or is terminated by the institution, the date that this occurs will be used to calculate both refunds and the return of Title IV Funds (if the latter is necessary). If a student stops attending and makes no formal withdrawal request, the date of determination will be used in all withdrawal calculations as the last date of the student’s obligation. The date of determination will be the second Monday of the module following when the student ceased attending classes. CollegeAmerica CO/WY, CollegeAmerica AZ, and CCSD: If you officially withdraw or are terminated by the institution, the last date of attendance will be used to calculate both refunds and the return of Title IV Funds (if the latter is necessary). If a student stops attending and makes no formal withdrawal request the student will be withdrawn after 14 days of non-attendance, and the last date of attendance will be used in all withdrawal calculations as the last date of the student’s obligation. Undergraduate programs use a modules-within-terms for Financial Aid. Each term, which is equivalent to a semester, consists of four modules. Within any term, a student who completes at least one module is considered to have completed the term, and the Federal Return of Title IV FFEL Funds regulations do not apply. For any Federal Pell Grant recipient who withdraws from school at any time, however, the student’s grant may have to be reduced from full time to a status that is less than full time, depending on how

Sample Refund Policies
For example: Assume that a first time enrollment student enrolled in a program and was charged $150 in fees. The student’s start date for the payment period was 1/13/09 with an end date of 5/2/09. The start of the next module was 2/18/09 in which the student attended four days of the module. The student did not come back the next module and the school terminated enrollment on the fifth day of the new module in which the student did not attend the first week. The student’s loans and grants were fully disbursed for the payment period. PELL was recalculated and unearned funds were returned. See the calculations below. CollegeAmerica AZ/CO/WY: Example: Assume that a first time enrollment student enrolled in a program and was charged $150 in fees. The student’s start date for the payment period was 1/13/09 with an end date of 5/2/09. The college determined that the student did not have grades beyond module 1, 2/7/09. The student’s loans and grants were fully disbursed for the payment period. The college terminated the student after 14 days of nonattendance, PELL was recalculated and unearned funds were returned. See the calculations below.

Students should be aware that scholarships awarded to them are not applied to their financial account until they have completed the first and second academic years. Students are notified of the exam through their high school counselor’s office or by letter to the students’ residence. All students are invited to visit the College for an admissions interview and a tour of the College at any time prior to the event. Any high school senior who will graduate in the same school year as the scholarship examinations for that school year is eligible. All scholarships cannot be transferred and have no cash value. If a student withdraws before completing an academic year, the scholarship may not be awarded and arrangements will need to be made to reimburse the College. The total award range for this scholarship is $7,000 to $8,000. Legacy Grants will be awarded for 10% of the tuition remaining after transfer of credits if an applicant enrolls in a program offered by the College. The following criteria apply: 1. The Legacy Grant only applies to applicants who are immediate family members (father, mother, son, daughter, brother, sister, stepchildren, spouses, and grandparents/grandchildren) of either a graduate or a currently enrolled student in good standing (3.0 or above cumulative GPA with 90% attendance). The grant is applied at the end of the program. A student may share the value of the grant up to half of its value with a family member enrolling at the same time. Every subsequent enrolling family member is granted the Legacy Grant in an amount representing 10% of tuition. The student must maintain a cumulative GPA of 3.0 and 90% attendance. The grant may not be combined with other college scholarships or grants. The grant applies to tuition only and does not result in a cash payment to the student or the student’s immediate family member. This grant is not transferable to non-family members and is a waiver of tuition.

Refund calculations are complex. For further information and examples, read the catalog and visit our Financial Aid Office.

Sample Refund Policy – California College San Diego ONLY
2. Example of the California Pro Rata Refund Policy Formula: Divide the total tuition charge, exclusive of the registration fee, by the number of hours in the program. The quotient is the hourly charge for the program. The amount owed by the student for the purposes of calculating a refund is derived by multiplying the total hours scheduled to be attended through the last day of attendance by the hourly charge for instruction, plus the amount of the registration fee and books and equipment obtained by the student. This is the Initial Refund. Initial Refund plus adjustment for cost of equipment (returned) equals the actual refund. Refund Calculation Example – CCSD only: Example [Tuition only, no adjustments for registration fee or computers or books not returned]: Assume that you are enrolled in a semester with 600 hours of instruction and you paid $14,325 in tuition. If you withdraw after completing only 200 hours and return the equipment and books, the calculation would be: $14,325 x (400/600) = $9,550 (Refund). 3.

Sexual harassment is an offense. Sexual harassment is defined as any unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favors, or other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. If a student or employee has been the victim of any sexual offense, including sexual harassment, on campus or during a College-related activity, the offense must be reported at once to the Campus Director or administrator in charge. An investigation will be conducted.

Activities
Students are invited to participate in activities sponsored by the College. These activities serve as the ideal place to meet new friends and develop greater poise and self-reliance.

Student Conduct
Students at Stevens-Henager College are expected to conduct themselves as responsible adults. Expulsion, suspension, or some lesser sanction may be imposed for any of the following offenses: 1) interruption or any manner of interference with the normal operation of the College; 2) destruction, damage, or misuse of College equipment, facilities, or property; 3) illegal possession, use, or furnishing of alcoholic beverages while on campus or while involved in College-related activities; 4) illegal possession, use, or furnishing of drugs while on campus or while involved in College-related activities; 5) physical or verbal abuse of another person in the College community; 6) theft of another’s property occurring on College premises; 7) participation in hazing; 8) academic cheating or plagiarism; 9) commission of other offenses (including use of inappropriate Internet material) that in the opinion of administration may be contrary to the best interest of the College community. Sanctions that may be imposed are 1) warning, 2) suspension, or 3) expulsion. When appropriate, the College will issue warnings prior to dismissing a student for poor conduct. The College, however, may dismiss a student without warning if the offense is serious. The Campus Director makes the decision as to the seriousness of any offense. Additionally, termination for cause from externships may result in dismissal from the program, loss of time, loss of credit, and/or increased charges. In accordance with state law, California College San Diego observes a nosmoking policy in the school buildings. CollegeAmerica (Denver campus only): In addition to meeting the standards above, students in the Associate Degree in Nursing Program are expected to follow the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics and the CollegeAmerica ADN Program's Code of Conduct in the Students Supplemental Handbook. The nursing student provides services with respect for human dignity and the uniqueness of the client unrestricted by considerations of social or economic status, personal attributes, or the nature of health problems. The nursing student safeguards the client's right to privacy by judiciously protecting information of a confidential nature. The nursing student acts to safeguard the client and the public when healthcare and safety are affected by the incompetent, unethical, or illegal practice of any person. The

Honors
Several campuses of the Colleges participate in the Future Business Leaders of America and the Alpha Beta Kappa National Honor Society. Students must be nominated to these select groups by the College faculty. Each award is based on academic standing as well as professionalism at the College.

Orientation
A student must complete orientation requirements in order to be considered an enrolled student. If a student is unable to attend the formal orientation program, he or she must set an appointment with the student’s program director or with a campus representative for an individual orientation during the first week of classes. Guidelines for academic success and behavioral standards are reviewed, and student services and regulations are discussed.

Campus Security
The College strives to provide a safe environment for our students’ learning experience. Our facilities are located in business settings, and trespassing laws are enforced on our premises. If a crime is committed on our premises, College personnel are available to assist students. Pursuant to the requirements of the U.S. Department of Education, colleges publish all known occurrences of crimes committed on campus. These statistics are available in the Financial Aid Office and are also part of the orientation materials. In the event of a crime, an incident report must be completed, and a police report may be filed. Any and all occurrences of crime committed on the campus should be reported immediately to the

nursing student assumes responsibility and accountability for individual nursing judgments and actions. The nursing student exercises informed judgment and uses individual competence and qualifications as criteria in seeking consultation and accepting responsibilities.

Student Complaint/Grievance Procedure
Alternative Dispute Resolution: While no one expects disputes and conflicts, sometimes they do occur, and it is in the best interests of the parties to resolve the dispute in the simplest, fastest, and least expensive manner. The student therefore agrees to follow the three steps below: Step One: Any and all disputes, conflicts, problems, controversies, or claims of any kind without exception arising from or connected to enrollment and attendance at the College (“dispute”) should first be taken up with the Campus Director. If the dispute is not then resolved, a written statement should be made of each party’s position and submitted to the Corporate Campus Director for a final decision. The parties may proceed to Step Two if the dispute is not resolved in Step One. Step Two: The parties agree that any dispute should be resolved through mediation. Any such mediation will be held in the city in which the student resides. The parties agree to attend and make a sincere and good faith effort to resolve the dispute through this mediation. Step Three: The parties agree that any dispute arising from enrollment, no matter how described, pleaded or styled, shall be resolved by binding arbitration under the substantive and procedural requirements of the Federal Arbitration Act, conducted, at the student’s sole election, by either the Better Business Bureau (BBB) or the American Arbitration Association. All determinations as to the scope, enforceability and effect of this arbitration agreement shall be decided by the arbitrator, and not by a court. The award rendered by the arbitrator may be entered in any court having jurisdiction. CollegeAmerica Arizona only: If the student complaint cannot be resolved after exhausting the institution’s grievance procedure, the student may file a complaint with the Arizona State Board for Private Post-Secondary Education. The student must contact the State Board for further details. The State Board address is: 1400 W. Washington, Room 260 Phoenix, AZ 85007; (602) 542-5709. Website: http://azppse.state.az.us.

I. Terms of Arbitration 1. Both Student and the College irrevocably agree that any dispute between them shall be submitted to Arbitration. 2. Neither the Student nor the College shall file or maintain any lawsuit in any court against the other, and agree that any suit filed in violation of this Agreement shall be dismissed by the court in favor of an Arbitration conducted pursuant to this Agreement. 3. The costs of the Arbitration filing fee, arbitrator’s compensation, and facilities fees will be paid by the College, to the extent these fees are greater than a district court filing fee. 4. The arbitrator’s decision shall be set forth in writing and shall set forth the essential findings and conclusions upon which the decision is based. 5. Any remedy available from a court under the law shall be available in the Arbitration. II. Procedure for Filing Arbitration 1. The Student desiring to file Arbitration should first contact the Campus Director, who will provide the Student with a copy of the BBB or AAA Rules at no cost. The Student desiring to file Arbitration should then contact the BBB or AAA, which will provide the appropriate forms and detailed instructions. The Student should bring this form to the BBB or AAA. 2. The Student may, but need not, be represented by an attorney at the Arbitration.

Program Modernization
The College prepares its students for employment in the technical, business, graphic arts, and medical communities. To best meet the needs of these employers, periodic revision of our courses and majors is necessary. The College, therefore, reserves the right to add to or delete material from courses, alter program content, cancel a program if there is insufficient enrollment, and change faculty, as circumstances indicate.

Provisional eligibility, which allows students to receive limited services and accommodations, may be granted in the following situations: 3. The student provides documentation that is outdated or incomplete and is in the process of obtaining updated documentation, or The student does not have ready access to required documentation, but provides some other form of legitimate evidence of disability and the subsequent limitations and agrees to provide the required documentation in a timely fashion.

4.

Disaster Affecting the College’s Operations
In the event of an “Act of God” affecting operations (i.e., fire, flood, hurricane, tornado, etc.), Stevens-Henager College reserves the right to suspend training for a period not to exceed 90 days.

Documentation Requirements
Students are required to provide the Disability Services Office with medical or psychological documentation in order to receive accommodations. All medical information received by Disability Services remains confidential and is only released to other College personnel with the student’s written permission. Specific documentation requirements may vary slightly depending on the disability. Generally, students should use the following guidelines in determining what constitutes adequate documentation: Statement of disability, including diagnosis, instruments/tests used to reach that diagnosis, current medications (if any) used to treat the condition and their potential side effects, signed by a qualified medical/psychological professional; Statement of the current impact of the disability on academic performance; Recommendations for appropriate academic accommodations. If the student’s documentation is not current (within the last three to five years), or if the student has a learning disability and the most recent testing was prior to age 16, the student will be asked to seek more current testing and/or diagnostic information. This is to ensure that any accommodations made by the College are best suited to the student’s current needs and/or level of functioning.

Disability Services Philosophy
Students with disabilities have a right to reasonable accommodations.

What Is a Disability?
The College uses the definition of disability set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which states that a disabled person is anyone who: has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; has a record of such an impairment; is regarded as having such an impairment.

Exceptions
Students with diagnosed alcohol or drug abuse qualify for services only when not actively engaged in the use of those substances. Individuals with temporary disabilities (e.g., having a broken arm, recovering from surgery) do not qualify under the law as someone with a disability, and as such, are not entitled to reasonable accommodations.

Accommodations
Students with disabilities are entitled to reasonable accommodations at the College. Each student who chooses to seek accommodations will meet with the Disability Services Coordinator, and together they will determine what accommodations to request based on the needs of the student and the demands of the course.

Eligibility for Services
In order to receive accommodations, students must meet the following criteria: 1. Have a documented disability (documentation must be supplied) that presents a significant barrier to the educational process, and The student must request services from Disability Services through the Dean or Director of Student Services.

Title IX and VI of the Civil Rights Act
All educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972 and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, whereby institutions do not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, or national origin in the educational programs or activities that they operate. The College is subject to these requirements and complies fully. The Campus Director is the

2.

78

coordinator at the College. All students, faculty, and administrative employees should refer any complaints of discrimination in writing to the coordinator’s attention.

Vocational Rehabilitation Act
The College is an equal opportunity employer covered by Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 concerning nondiscrimination under federal grants: Section 504. No otherwise qualified handicapped individual in the United States, as defined in Section 7(6) shall, solely by reason of his handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. The Campus Director is the College Equal Employment Opportunity Administrator. The Equal Employment Opportunity Administrator is responsible for ensuring that all applicants for admission are afforded equal opportunity in accordance with our EEO policy as well as supervising periodic reviews of our physical facilities and current policies, practices, and educational programs. In addition, the Administrator is responsible for reviewing all complaints that allege discrimination of any sort.
