THE LONG ISLAND METROPOLITAN REGION Five Towns College is situated within an easy commute to the places where the world's greatest musicians gather and perform, as well as the varied cultural attractions that make the Long Island Metropolitan Region a mecca of world culture. The educational advantage of being in the artistic capital of the world cannot be overemphasized. New York City, with everything from Lincoln Center to Broadway, is just a train ride away and provides students with some of the best cultural advantages in the world. The opportunity to see, hear and directly experience the plethora of creative activities that only New York City offers is one that cannot fail to make a student's years at Five Towns College much more than an opportunity for technical growth. It is truly a chance to expand every horizon and to mature intellectually, emotionally, and culturally. Closer to campus, the many communities of Long Island abound with cultural and recreational opportunities.

General Education
All degrees offered by Five Towns College include a General Education Core Curriculum that is common to all degree programs. The core curriculum expresses the fundamental values that the faculty seeks to inculcate in all undergraduate students. The General Education program is designed so that students acquire and demonstrate college-level proficiency in essential skills, including oral and written communication, scientific and quantitative reasoning, critical analysis and reasoning, technological competency, and information literacy. The General Education program also incorporates the study of values, ethics, and diverse perspectives, while fostering an appreciation for the musical and artistic traditions at Five Towns College. General Education Core Curriculum Credits ART ___ Art History (non-music education majors) ................................................ 3 ENG 101, 102 English Composition 1, 2................... 6 HIS 301 Cultural Diversity............................... 3 MAT/SCI Mathematics or Science ..................... 3 MUH ___ Music History..................................... 3 ____ 101 General Psychology or Introduction to Sociology ............... 3 SCI 101, 102 Information Literacy 1, 2 ................... 2 SPE 101/231 Fundamentals of Speech or Public Speaking (non-theatre majors) .... 3 Total Liberal Arts Courses of a general or theoretical nature that are designed to develop judgment and understanding about human beings’ relationship to their social, cultural, and natural environment constitute the Liberal Arts. All degree programs offered by Five Towns College include a distribution of coursework in the Liberal Arts. The specific number of Liberal Arts courses required for each program of study varies depending upon the specific degree being pursued. Professional degree programs include a minimum distribution requirement in the Liberal Arts of 25%, while others programs offered by the College require between 50% and 75%. Liberal Arts courses may be incorporated in both the General Education Core Curriculum and into major degree program content areas. When Liberal Arts courses are included in major degree program content areas, they are 26 generally offered in the form of humanities coursework, such as literature, music or art appreciation and history, and cultural studies within the context of a specific discipline (i.e., art, film or theatre history). However, the General Education Core Curriculum and the Liberal Arts courses contained therein, are not directed toward specialized study or specific occupational or professional objectives, while the Liberal Arts courses contained in major content areas do have such a focus. Information Literacy Information Literacy provides an intellectual framework for identifying, finding, understanding, evaluating and using information. It includes determining the nature and extent of needed information; accessing information effectively and efficiently; evaluating critically information and its sources; incorporating selected information in the learner’s knowledge base and value system; using information effectively to accomplish a specific purpose; understanding the economic, legal and social issues surrounding the use of information and information technology; and observing laws, regulations, and institutional policies related to the access and use of information. At Five Towns College Information Literacy is an integral part of the General Education required of all students. Information Literacy is taught discretely in SCI 101 and SCI 102, and taught in conjunction with ENG 101 and ENG 102. In addition, Information Literacy is infused into a variety of other courses, such as those with research requirements. Technological Competency Technological Competency as expressed in the General Education Program at Five Towns College implies that undergraduate students demonstrate proficiency in those technological skills that are requisite for academic success in both General Education and in content specific degree programs. In General Education these proficiencies include knowledge of computer hardware and software, file management, word processing, spreadsheets, and Internet and email systems. Technological Competency skills for General Education are introduced during Orientation, and in SCI 101 and SCI 102. In addition, Technological Competency is infused into a variety of other courses, such as COM 101, COM 102, SCI 141, and ELE 363.

Technological Competency for content specific degree programs is infused into a wide variety of courses, depending upon the degree program being pursued and the technological proficiencies required for success therein. For example, students pursuing a course of study in Audio Recording Technology develop content specific technological proficiencies in courses such as AUD 101 – 403. Similarly, students pursuing a course of study in Theatre Arts develop content specific technological proficiencies in courses such as THE 111–412. Technological Competency is also infused across the curriculum through the use of new and emerging learning technologies that are embedded in the College’s teaching methods. For example, each semester a variety of courses are offered online through the College’s Blackboard platform. This distance learning initiative affords students the opportunity to develop the skills and dispositions necessary to successfully utilize new and emerging learning technologies. In addition, Five Towns College policies mandate that new students entering the College on or after the fall 2006 have access to a personal computer at their place of residence. In addition, nearly every course offered by Five Towns College has online Blackboard Learning site associated with it. These policies and procedures further enhance the General Education goal of developing in students college-level Technological Competency. Oral and Written Communication Undergraduate students are expected to acquire and demonstrate college-level proficiencies in Oral and Written Communication. Oral Communication skills require the abilities to prepare and deliver well organized, content-rich, and articulate public presentations. Written Communication skills include the abilities to state clearly and literally a thesis and to develop that thesis so that it is supported by evidence, logic, and specific arguments. The writing exercises that students in ENG 101 encounter move from Invention through Narration, Description, and Exemplification to Process. This course also stresses Information Literacy beginning with a Library Orientation and culminating in the documentation of research materials. Drafting and revising are major components of the course, and students are required to submit the final drafts of five essays that are graded according the standards of the English Department’s Rubric. Critical Thinking skills are infused into the course and are reflected in assignments for the students’ Reaction Journals as well as in their essays and their performance on Mid-semester and Final Exams. ENG 102 builds upon the foundation established in ENG 101, moving through more sophisticated writing patterns and advanced library skills. The culmination of the course is a research paper and a brief oral presentation that summarizes the major findings of that research. Students are required to submit essays that demonstrate proficiency in each of the following five areas: Cause and Effect; Comparison and Contrast; Classification and Division; Definition; and Argumentation. Oral and Written Communication skills are introduced in discrete courses that are included in the General Education Core Curriculum. These include SPE 101, ENG 101, and ENG 102. The Oral Communication skill of students pursuing a program in Theatre Arts has its foundation in THE 161. Oral Communication skills are addressed in SPE 101. The course content here encompasses all areas of communication—verbal and non-verbal, ethnic and gender diverse, and intra and inter-personal. Students are required to deliver three oral presentations of increasing sophistication, and these presentations are accompanied by written reports that are graded for content. Finally, the presentations themselves are evaluated according to a carefully constructed rubric. The oral and written proficiencies established during the freshman year, along with the skills in critical analysis and reasoning, are further developed beyond the first year by requiring that students present research papers and oral presentations in upper division coursework. Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning Undergraduate students are expected to acquire and demonstrate college-level proficiencies in Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning. Proficiencies in Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning are introduced to undergraduate students either through discrete courses that are included in the General Education Core Curriculum, such as MAT 111, MAT 123, MAT 231, PSY 101, and SOC 101, or through infusion into a variety of courses such as SCI 131, SCI 141, and SCI 211. Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning skills are further advanced by infusion into a wide variety of other courses where inductive and deductive reasoning skills are essential. Scientific reasoning is characterized by adherence to a selfcorrecting system of inquiry, the scientific method, that relies on empirical evidence and testable theory to describe, understand, predict and control natural phenomena. Quantitative Reasoning employs simple mathematical methods, whether graphical, symbolic, or numerical to

10
solve real-world problems. Infusion occurs in a wide variety of courses where troubleshooting and problem solving skills are developed. For example, Film/Video students develop troubleshooting and problem solving skills in courses such as VID 101 – 464. Similarly, Theatre Arts students develop these skills in courses such as THE 111, THE 313 and THE 411. Similarly students may elect to take other courses where these General Education skills are emphasized. AUD 101, for instance, deals with the physics of sound, BUS 101 and BUS 251 are grounded solidly in mathematics, ECO 101 and 102 are concerned with mathematical data and formulas, and SOC 101 and PSY 101 are rooted in the scientific method. Critical Analysis and Reasoning Undergraduate students are expected to acquire and demonstrate college-level proficiencies in Critical Analysis and Reasoning, including the ability to interpret, analyze, and evaluate arguments based on their merits and to construct logically developed arguments based upon sound data. Proficiencies in Critical Analysis and Reasoning are developed though discrete courses in the General Education Core Curriculum, such as ENG 101, ENG 102, PSY 101 and SOC 101. In addition, the development of these proficiencies is infused into a wide variety of other courses, such as Literature and History courses offered by the Liberal Arts Division.

Values, Ethics, and Diverse Perspectives The Mission and Goals of Five Towns College, as adopted by its Board of Trustees, broadly express the values and ethics of the College while fostering an appreciation for diverse perspectives and the College’s musical and artistic traditions. These characteristics find further expression in the General Education Core Curriculum as adopted by the Faculty. These characteristics are inculcated into undergraduate students in a variety of ways. For example, the General Education Core Curriculum includes courses that challenge students to respect diversity, and foster an appreciation for the College’s creative characteristics. In Diversity, the College seeks to develop in students a disposition of respect for diverse perspectives and respect for diverse cultures. These courses include HIS 301, and a wide variety of Art and Music History courses such as ART 101 – 202 and MUH 101 – 408. The College also fosters a learning environment where dispositions toward Values, Ethics and Diverse Perspectives are developed. This includes a rich offering of co-curricula and extracurricula activities, and policies and standards that facilitate a campus climate that reflects these characteristics.

Associate Degrees
LIBERAL ARTS DEGREE PROGRAM Acquainting the student with the broad cultural, social, and scientific aspects of the world and stimulating him or her to think, to analyze, and to communicate are the primary goals of a liberal education. Such an education not only offers the potential for a richer, more rewarding life but is also basic to all pursuits in the arts, sciences, and professions. The Liberal Arts program provides a general education in the traditional areas of knowledge, regardless of the student's career choice. In addition, the student has the opportunity for additional study in a particular discipline in selected fields to explore its methods, acquire its tools, and gain a mastery of its body of knowledge. For the student whose career choice is not clearly defined, the Liberal Arts program, leading to the Associate in Arts degree, provides an opportunity to explore selected areas in the humanities, the arts, and the social and behavioral sciences. Some students develop interest in a particular career and transfer after graduation for further educational preparation. ASSOCIATE IN ARTS (A.A.) DEGREE IN LIBERAL ARTS The Associate in Arts graduate is prepared for transfer with advanced standing to a baccalaureate program where additional professional training may be undertaken.

Every effort is made to provide an environment in which each student can develop his or her particular capabilities and interests to the fullest. The College Counseling Office provides personal counseling in a confidential setting to assist students in making decisions related to personal and academic situations. Referrals to outside professional agencies may be made in situations requiring more specialized counseling.

STANDARDS FOR UNDERGRADUATE ADMISSIONS As an institution with a significant performing arts component, the College recognizes that the results from standardized tests and high school average grades do not necessarily predict the likelihood that prospective students will be successful at Five Towns College. While the College generally admits students who have attained the equivalent of an 80 high school average and combined SAT-1 scores of approximately 1400, the Admissions Office will consider the entirety of a candidate’s application before rendering a decision on admissions. In some cases students with lower scores may be admitted, and in some cases students with higher scores may not. Students submitting GED scores of at least 2500 are also invited to apply for admission. The College is guided by a rolling admissions policy that encourages applications for admission to be filed at any time. Applicants seeking to begin their studies in any Fall semester are encouraged to file a complete application no later than May 1. Spring semester applicants should file by January 1. All supporting materials, including auditions and interviews, must be on file for an application to be deemed complete. Admissions decisions are generally made within four weeks. EARLY DECISION Well-qualified students for whom Five Towns College is their first choice, must submit their application, all supporting material, and meet audition and interview requirements on or before December 1. Students will be informed of the admissions decision within two weeks of receipt of all materials. In order to apply for the Five Towns College Early Decision Program, students must sign the Early Decision Agreement stating that if accepted early, all other college applications will be withdrawn and the student will attend Five Towns College. Students contemplating Early Decision are encouraged to contact the admissions office to schedule an interview. AUDITION AND INTERVIEW REQUIREMENT Interviews may be required when the documentation supplied by an applicant does not contain sufficient information upon which an admissions decision can be made. Students will be notified if an interview is required. Similarly, students who believe that the documentation contained in their application does not accurately reflect upon their readiness to pursue a particular program of study may request an interview to discuss their qualifications for admission. Interviews are granted at the discretion of the College. Admission into any music or theatre program may be contingent upon passing an audition. The most current audition requirements are available from the Admissions Office. STUDENT RETENTION AND GRADUATION Of the first time freshmen who entered a baccalaureate program in the Fall 2003 semester, 74% completed the program in 150% of the time normally allotted. Of those first time freshmen, 45% graduated from the College and 29% transferred to another College for which their coursework at Five Towns College provided substantial preparation. Of the new students who transferred to a baccalaureate program at Five Towns College for the Fall 2003 semester, 56% completed the program by the end of the Spring 2009 semester. Of those new transfer students, 34% graduated from the College and 22% transferred to yet another College for which their coursework at Five Towns College provided substantial preparation. TEACHER EDUCATION PROGRAMS LABOR MARKET While a general shortage of teachers on a national and state-wide basis currently exists, the supply and demand for licensed teachers can vary greatly by subject, geographic area, and time period. Both the New York State Education Department and the New York City Education Department post online information regarding the job market for licensed teachers. Prospective, new and current students are advised to stay informed about the labor market supply and demand for licensed teachers in New York State by attending periodic job market seminars sponsored by both the Education Division and the Career Services Office, and by visiting the State and City Departments online at www.teachny.com and www.highered.nysed.gov. Print versions of the data published on these websites are available in the Education Division Office. Additional workforce and industry data is available online from the New York State Department of Labor at www.labor.state.ny.us.

Academic Information
The College makes available the finest quality of instruction. Students are expected to achieve appropriate levels of academic performance, to be knowledgeable about prerequisites for admission to specific courses, and to be aware of graduation requirements and College policies, procedures and regulations in the College's offical publications. The Registrar's Office is responsible for the registration of students and the maintenance of all academic records and credentials. Students should address all requests and/or petitions about matters of academic standing to the Academic Standards Committee. UNIT OF CREDIT The semester hour is the unit of credit used by Five Towns College. One semester hour represents approximately three hours of study per week for one semester. For example, a course requiring three class recitations (50-minute periods) a week for a semester would receive three semester hours of credit. Credit for Major Instrument/Voice instruction is based on one lesson a week plus a minimum of six hours of individual practice. GRADING SYSTEM The College uses the following grading system: GRADE A AB+ B BC+ C CD+ D F WU I W P R AU T QUALITY OF ACHIEVEMENT Excellent .......................... 95-100 ......................................... 90-94 ......................................... 87-89 Good ................................ 84-86 ......................................... 80-83 ......................................... 77-79 Average ............................ 74-76 ......................................... 70-73 ......................................... 65-69 Poor .................................. 60-64 Failure .............................. 0-59 Unofficial Withdrawal ..... Incomplete ....................... Official Withdrawal ......... Passing (Non-credit courses) Repeat (Non-credit courses) Audit (Not For Credit) ..... Transfer Credit ................. GRADE POINTS 4.0 3.7 3.3 3.0 2.7 2.3 2.0 1.7 1.3 1.0 0.0 0.0 — — — — — —

GRADE POINT AVERAGE (G.P.A.) Grade point averages are computed by multiplying the point value of each grade by the credits designated for each course. This gives the grade point total. The sum of these totals divided by the number of credits attempted gives the G.P.A. for the semester. INCOMPLETE GRADES (I) "I" is a grade recorded for a course in which a student has failed to complete certain work or has been absent from the final examination because of circumstances beyond his/her control. The written approvals of the Chairperson and Dean are required before an "I" grade may be given. An incomplete not removed before the tenth week of the following semester becomes an "F". Responsibility for removing an "I" within this time limit rests with the student. An "I" may also be awarded in any class where the level of proficiency in a core skill has not been demonstrated satisfactorily, in accordance with the Five Towns College Student Learning Assessment Plan. REPEAT GRADES (R) "R" is a grade given in non-credit courses for course requirements not successfully completed. DISTANCE LEARNING/ONLINE COURSES Five Towns College reserves the right to offer a portion of each degree program in an online course format. In such cases, the College expects that students registering for these courses will supply their own computer and access to the Internet, as set forth in the Catalog section entitled “Computer Requirements.” The College also reserves the right to limit the number of online courses that any student may pursue wholly online. In order to ensure the integrity of online courses, the College may require students enrolled in online courses to present themselves at the College for a variety of reasons, including course orientation, and midsemester and final examinations. OFFICIAL EMAIL NOTICES All Five Towns College students are provided with an official email address when they initially register for College. Students are expected to check their official email box regularly for official notices and other important information from the College. Students will be deemed to have received notifications from the College transmitted to their email address.

107
MAKE-UP FINAL EXAMINATIONS All requests for make-up of final examinations must be submitted in writing to the instructor for written approval. Should the instructor not be available, the Program Chairperson or the Provost may give their written approval. Such requests for make-up of final examinations should be submitted no later than two weeks after the date of the regular final examination. Permission to take a make-up examination is given only for compelling reasons, such as illness, a death in the family, or a breakdown in transportation. Students with written permission to take a make-up examination should report to the Bursar's Office with the required fee. The receipt marked "Paid" must be presented before the student is permitted to take a make-up examination. The examination is held at a time and place designated by the administration. REPEATING COURSES Courses may be repeated once where a grade of F, WU, D+ or D has been earned. In such cases, the higher grade will be computed in the G.P.A. and the lower grade will remain on the transcript without credit or being computed in the cumulative G.P.A. Students who fail to earn a passing grade in a required course after two attempts may be required to withdraw from a program of study. DISABILITY SERVICES Five Towns College students who have a physical, medical, learning or psychiatric disability, either temporary or permanent, may receive reasonable accommodations in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and/or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. In order to establish eligibility for such accommodations, students are required to identify themselves, provide appropriate documentation, to the Registrar's Office and collaborate with the Academic Support Center in a timely manner to develop and follow an Accommodation Plan. Prospective students with handicapping conditions seeking admission to the College are urged to identify themselves early in the application process, and to consult with the Academic Support Center to ascertain whether or not their needs can be met by the College before reaching a decision. AUDITING COURSES A student may audit a course by obtaining written permission from the Division Chair and registering for the course after paying the per credit fee. Audited courses may not be taken later for credit. CREDIT BY EXAMINATION Credit by Examination is a method by which academic credit is awarded to recognize prior college-level learning. Credit by examination is not designed to merely recognize “life” experience. Credit by examination may only be awarded with the permission of the Vice President/Provost, and is a privilege available to full-time, matriculated students who have a significant record of accomplishment and competence in a particular academic subject area taught at Five Towns College. Students seeking Credit by Examination must have successfully completed a minimum of 15 credits at Five Towns College, have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better, and be recommended by the Division Chair that offers the course or sequence of courses. In addition, if approved, the student must successfully complete one of the following examinations, with a minimum score as shall be determined by the Vice President/Provost of the College: • Five Towns College Credit by Examination The student must be able to demonstrate competence by successfully completing, with a grade of B or better, a comprehensive examination administered by the faculty that encompasses the stated objectives of the subject course. There is a $50 fee for the administrative cost of these comprehensive examinations. Students who pass such an examination shall be charged one-third of the regular tuition for credits earned in this manner. • Excelsior College Examination Successfully complete an Excelsior College Examination (ECE). Excelsior College examinations are available in business, education, health, liberal arts and sciences, and nursing. Learn more about Excelsior College Examinations at www.excelsior.edu. • College Level Examination Program (CLEP) CLEP offers five general examinations in English Composition, Humanities, Mathematics, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences and History, which validate nontraditional learning equal to what is usually taught during the first year of college. Five Towns College may award transfer credit for CLEP scores of 50 or higher, when such an award is appropriate to the degree program being pursued at Five Towns College. Learn more about CLEP at www.collegeboard.com/clep. INDIVIDUALIZED INSTRUCTION Individualized Instruction in a group setting is similar to Independent Study and requires the same student effort hours as regular class instruction.

108
ACADEMIC STANDING Students whose cumulative Grade Point Average falls below a 2.0 will be placed on probation and may be limited to no more than 12 credits per semester. Students will be removed from probation upon attaining the required G.P.A. A minimum cumulative G.P.A. of 2.0 is required for graduation. ADVANCED PLACEMENT EXAMINATIONS (AP) Students may be eligible for credit for Advanced Placement (AP) examinations for which a grade of three (3) or better has been achieved. Examinations are administered to high school students in over a dozen different college subjects. Prospective students who have taken AP examinations, must provide the College with official score reports sent from the College Board to the Admissions Office during the admissions process. The College will only consider requests for AP credit when made by new students for examinations taken prior to matriculation. AP credit is not awarded to students after they have matriculated. ATTENDANCE Each student is expected to attend classes regularly to achieve maximum benefit from the educational program. He or she is responsible for all class work missed regardless of the reason(s) for absence. Excessive, unexplained absence may result in a lowered grade, especially when it affects participation in class activities. Absence from more than twenty percent of the total class meetings of a course may result in a failing grade. INTERNSHIP COURSES Internship courses provide students with on-the-job training experience in the world of business. Students enrolled in BUS 471, 472 Internship 1, 2 spend at least 90 hours each semester as interns in the field and attend seminars at the College where they share their experiences with other students and the instructor. Students enrolled in BUS 473 Internship 3 or THE 475 Theatre Internship spend 35-40 hours a week for a total of at least 360 hours in a firm or theatre. Students who wish to take this course must obtain the approval of the Internship Coordinator. TIME LIMITATION Students are expected to complete their Bachelor degree studies within a period of six years. Credit for courses earned more than ten (10) years ago cannot be accepted to meet degree requirements. GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE A student who believes that he or she has been personally aggrieved or discriminated against by a staff or faculty member should first seek to resolve the problem through discussion with that individual. Failing a resolution of the matter, the student may then bring the matter in written form to the attention either of the chairperson of the program involved or the supervisor of the particular service or activity. A written response will be made within two weeks. If the student is dissatisfied with the decision, he/she may then appeal to the Vice President/Provost for redress. INDEPENDENT STUDY Independent Study is available only to Seniors who need a specific required course to graduate within the senior year of study (the last 30/32 credits for the Bachelors Degree or the last 15/16 credits for the Associate Degree). The student is responsible for meeting the requirements listed on the Independent Study Guidelines and for the initiation and completion of the Independent Study Contract and Record, obtainable in the Registrar's Office. MATRICULATION Students who have been conditionally accepted to the College will be classified as matriculated for a degree after their transcripts from high schools and other Colleges (if any) are received and verified by the Registrar's Office. Students who interrupt their education by failing to register for any Fall or Spring semester lose their matriculated status and are required to file an Application for Readmission when they seek to return unless they have filed for and have been approved for a Leave of Absence. STUDENT CONDUCT Five Towns College seeks to provide and maintain a secure and wholesome educational environment for its students, faculty, and staff. In order to guarantee this environment and to safeguard its ideals of scholarship, character, and student conduct, the College reserves the right to require the withdrawal of any student at any time. In this event, a refund of fees may be made in accordance with the refund schedule of the College.

109
WITHDRAWAL FROM COURSES Students who find it necessary to withdraw from a course or courses are required to notify their academic advisors, secure their approval, and complete all necessary forms. Program change fees must be paid in the Bursar's Office, and the completed forms must be presented to the Registrar's Office before a student can be considered officially withdrawn from a course or courses. Students may withdraw from courses without penalty until the last day of class. During this time period, they will receive a "W," which is not computed in the grade point average. A student who has not filed an official Withdrawal Form and who has been excessively absent will be assigned a grade of "WU" (Unofficial Withdrawal), which is equivalent to an "F" grade. WITHDRAWAL FROM COLLEGE Students who find it necessary to withdraw from the College are required to notify their academic advisor in writing of the reason(s) for withdrawal and complete the required Withdrawal Form. This form is available in the Registrar's Office. Failure to carry out the clearance procedures contained in the form will result in the withholding of all student records. Transcripts, information, and/or employment references will not be furnished until the Withdrawal Form has been completed and official withdrawal status has been granted. Official withdrawal status is based on the date of receipt and approval of a completed Withdrawal Form and not on the last date of attendance. Students who withdraw from the College will receive grades in accordance with the procedures detailed above under Withdrawal From Courses. Returning students must file an Application for Readmission, and will be required to satisfy the degree requirements set forth in the most recent College Catalog. PROGRAM CHANGES Students may apply for program changes for valid reasons at the beginning of a semester. To change a program, students are required to secure the approval of their academic advisor, complete an official Change of Program Request, pay the designated fee in the Bursar's Office, and file the completed form in the Registrar's Office. Such changes are not recorded on the transcript, and no change of program may be made after the first week of a semester. LEAVE OF ABSENCE Students who find it necessary to take a temporary leave of absence must file a Leave of Absence Application and seek approval of the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Committee. Recipients of financial aid, in the form of grants, scholarships, or loans, are reminded that a leave of absence does not in and of itself constitute a waiver of the College's Standards of Satisfactory Academic Progress. A waiver must be applied for separately in accordance with published College policy. Students applying for a leave of absence for a semester in progress are cautioned to consult with the Financial Aid Office before making application. A Leave of Absence may be granted for one or two semesters depending on the circumstances. Returning students may be required to demonstrate continued proficiency in their major field. READMISSION Students who have interrupted their studies for any length of time without having been approved for a Leave of Absence or who do not resume their studies at the expiration of an approved Leave of Absence are deemed to have surrendered their matriculated status. Students who have lost their matriculated status in this manner, or who have previously been dismissed from the College for any reason, must file an Application for Readmission if they seek to return to the College. Unless permission is otherwise granted, readmitted students are governed by the College Catalog in publication at the time of readmission. SUBSTITUTION/WAIVER POLICY Students may request permission to substitute or waive a degree program requirement. Approval of such a request is generally limited to situations where the substitute course contains the same or similar learning objectives as that offered by the required course, or where the application of a specific policy causes an unreasonable hardship with limited educational benefit. Course substitutions or waivers of other degree program requirements may also be requested in order to accommodate a documented learning disability. In order to process a substitution or waiver request, the student must complete an Academic Waiver/Course Substitution Request form, have it signed by their Academic Advisor, and return the form to the Registrar’s Office together with supporting documentation. The request will then be reviewed by the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Committee. Requests of this nature may be approved solely at the discretion of the College, in the exercise of its educational judgment.

110
TRANSCRIPTS A student copy of a Transcript of Record indicating scholastic standing is mailed to the student's home at the end of each semester. An official transcript bearing the seal of the College and the signature of the Registrar is mailed directly to institutions or persons at the student's written request. STUDENT RIGHTS UNDER THE FAMILY EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT (FERPA) Five Towns College fully complies with the federal Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). The purpose of the Act is to protect the rights of students and to insure the privacy and accuracy of education records. Generally, students have the right to inspect and review certain of their education records within 45 days of the day the College receives a request for access. They have the right to request the amendment of their education records that the student believes is inaccurate or misleading. Also, FERPA gives students the right to consent to disclosures of personally identifiable information contained in the student’s education records, except to the extent that the law authorizes disclosure without consent. FERPA permits the release of directory type information without the written consent of the student, provided the student has been given the opportunity to withhold such disclosure. Five Towns College considers the following to be directory type information: name, email address, address and telephone number (including local and permanent), date and place of birth; major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational institution attended by a student, student level and full/part-time status. Students who do not want this information released must give written notification to the Office of the Registrar. Students have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by Five Towns College to comply with the requirements of FERPA. The College provides annual notification to students of their rights under FERPA each year in the College’s catalogs and on the College website. Further, more information about FERPA is made available at the Office of the Registrar. FULL-TIME COURSELOAD Students who register for 12 or more credits are considered to be full-time students for that semester. Students who wish to register for more than the number of credits contained in the Recommended Sequence of Courses must obtain permission in advance, unless they have a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.0 or are registering for their final semester. This regulation does not apply to one (1) credit Performance Ensembles. Except for performance ensembles, students will be charged the part-time student per credit charge for each credit above that published in the Recommended Sequence of Content. Students are advised to consult with the Bursar for exact charges prior to registering for extra-credits. TRANSFER CREDIT Generally, the Registrar evaluates credit earned at other institutions soon after admission. To be eligible, final transcripts from all post-secondary institutions previously attended must be received before students have completed their first semester. For credit earned through traditional classroom work, evaluation is conducted on a course-by-course basis for all work in which grades of “C” or above have been earned. Five Towns College routinely accepts credit from regionally accredited institutions of higher education. The College will also accept credits earned at institutions which are not regionally accredited on a case-by-case basis. In these instances, students must also furnish the College with a copy of the course description for each course they seek to transfer, a copy of the transferring institution’s catalog, and such other information as may be reasonably necessary to determine course equivalency. Once matriculated at Five Towns College, students do not have the right to transfer credits to the institution, except as set forth herein. An undergraduate student who seeks to transfer credit from another institution after matriculation at Five Towns College must request approval in advance. Students should file a written request for permission to take courses at another institution with the Registrar at least six (6) weeks in advance. Such request should contain the rationale for taking courses at another institution, as well as a description of the course description as published by the school the student wishes to attend. No credit will be transferred without prior approval, nor will credit transfer for coursework with a grade below a “C”. Credit may be available for courses sponsored by organizations which are recommended in the “Guide to Educational Programs in Non-Collegiate Organizations” of the State University of New York. The decision to award credit in such cases may be determined by the Vice President for Academic Affairs or the Curriculum and Instruction Committee.

111
GRADUATE CREDITS FOR BACHELOR'S DEGREE Qualified seniors (those with a 3.25 or higher cumulative G.P.A.) may take graduate courses at the undergraduate tuition rate to complete the requirements for the bachelor's degree. A qualified student must have his/her advisor's and division chair's approval at the time of registration. The credits earned in these courses may not subsequently be applied toward graduate study. Graduate courses require a significant increase in student effort hours that include, but are not limited to, more rigorous, expansive and demanding research projects and papers than courses taken for undergraduate credit. GRADUATE COURSES Qualified seniors who need less than a full program to meet the requirements for the bachelor's degree may take, concurrently with their undergraduate program, a limited number of graduate courses for credit toward a graduate degree. These students must (1) fill out an application for admission (2) be accepted provisionally (3) declare their intention to take such courses for graduate credit. RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT Students must complete their last 30 credits in residence in order to be eligible for an Associate Degree and 60 credits for a Baccalaureate Degree. SOPHOMORE STANDING Sophomore standing—that of a second-year student—is attained when a student has successfully completed a minimum of 27 credits. JUNIOR STANDING Junior standing—that of a third-year student—is attained when a student has successfully completed a minimum of 54 credits. SENIOR STANDING Senior standing—that of a fourth-year student—is attained when a student has successfully completed a minimum of 87 credits. SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS Students who do not attain the minimum G.P.A. after two consecutive semesters will be considered not to be making satisfactory academic progress. Such students are subject to loss of matriculated status or dismissal unless a waiver is granted by the Curriculum, Instruction, and Assessment Committee. Students who seek to return to the College after a loss of matriculated status must file an Application for Readmission. If approved, readmitted students are subject to the provisions of the College Catalog in effect at the time of readmission. STUDENT LEARNING ASSESSMENT The College recognizes that grades earned by students for completing coursework are composite scores that reflect student efforts in a wide-range of course-based initiatives assigned by faculty members each semester. As it fulfills its mission, goals and objectives, the College also seeks to specifically assess student proficiencies (e.g. Written and Oral Communication) in a narrower range of course-based activities. The proficiencies that the College seeks to assess in this manner are more fully described in the Five Towns College Student Learning Assessment Plan, which is linked directly to the program-level mission and goals. Regardless of course grade average, every student must successfully demonstrate their proficiency in each of the skills identified in the Student Learning Assessment Plan before a final course grade is awarded. Those students who have not successfully demonstrated proficiency with any skill specifically assessed by the Student Learning Assessment Plan may be awarded a grade of “I” for the course and required to demonstrate the required proficiency in a manner acceptable to the faculty before course credit is awarded. Before entering into any program of study, students should familiarize themselves with the Mission and Goals of the College, as well as the Mission and Goals of each program of study they plan to pursue. The Five Towns College Student Learning Assessment Plan is available in the College Library and online at www.ftc.edu/SLAP. ELECTRONIC PORTFOLIOS All students entering into Five Towns College as of the Fall 2008 semester must maintain an electronic portfolio that documents the attainment of the knowledge, skills, and dispositions required by the Student Learning Assessment Plan. Students are assessed a one-time fee for an Electronic Portfolio when they register for SCI 101 Information Literacy 1. The Electronic Portfolio will be maintained for a period of seven years. After that time, alumni may arrange to continue maintaining their Electronic Portfolio directly with the College’s third-party service provider for an additional fee. INSTRUCTIONAL TECHNOLOGY The College utilizes a variety of instructional technology applications in the delivery of its educational programs and services. Nearly all courses utilize a hybrid instructional approach that blends traditional teaching methods with new online technologies. Not only does this hybrid approach improve the quality of the academic program, but it helps develop in students the knowledge, skills, and dispositions necessary to engage in life-long learning. To meet this goal, the College couples Blackboard Learning Systems with Smart Board Technologies in its classrooms. Electronic Portfolios are maintained by Pass-Port Learning Systems.

112

Financial Aid
Five Towns College recognizes that many students who are qualified and deserving may hesitate to apply for admission because of economic circumstances. However, no student or prospective student who wishes to enroll at the College should fail to apply for this reason. After discussing the matter with the College's financial aid administrator, the student may discover that a way can be found to overcome the problem of inadequate funds. A student's financial need is determined by subtracting the amount of the family's resources available for college expenses from the estimated cost of attending the College. In order to meet a student's financial need, the financial aid administrator may suggest a package of aid that includes a scholarship, a part-time job, and a loan or grant from the state or federal governments. To help prospective students understand the various kinds of assistance that may be available to them, descriptions of the three types of sources of financial help are given below. Prospective students should read these carefully to see how they apply in individual cases. Knowing the facts, they will be in a better position to discuss their problem of financial need with the College's financial aid administrator and to find a solution to their problem. FINANCIAL AID PAYMENTS The College will defer tuition payments for a student who has established eligibility for a grant or loan of equal amount. Moneys received by the College on behalf of a student will first be applied towards the student's tuition and housing. After the student's tuition and housing is paid in full, he/she will receive any balance. This arrangement does not apply to students on the Financial Aid Budget Plan. The Financial Aid Budget Plan is an arrangement between the College and students receiving financial aid. Under this arrangement money is advanced on a monthly basis for direct education expenses. These expenses are limited to transportation, food, rent, and other items that enable a student to attend a college. FREQUENCY OF FINANCIAL AID PAYMENTS The sooner a student applies for financial aid, the sooner it may be credited to him/her or disbursed. The recommended filing date for returning students is March 31st for the Fall semester. All other students are urged to apply at least eight weeks prior to the beginning of the semester of attendance. Money from entitlement programs such as Federal Pell, ACG, TAP and Federal SEOG are usually credited to a student once each semester. Loans are always disbursed in two payments for each loan period. REFUNDS INVOLVING FINANCIAL AID When a refund request is approved by the College Committee on Refunds for a student who has received financial aid, portions of the financial aid obtained must first be returned by the College to the appropriate agencies. In such a disbursement, moneys received from Title IV programs, such as Federal Direct Loans, Pell, and FSEOG, must be returned to the appropriate Title IV programs and will be calculated as follows:
Title IV Financial Aid Earned multiplied by (X) % to be retained (based on completed number of days) AMOUNT RETAINED BY SCHOOL Title IV Financial Aid Disbursed subtracted by (—) Financial Aid Retained AMOUNT DUE TITLE IV PROGRAMS

ESTIMATED EXPENSES Students should make a realistic estimate of the expenses for the academic year. These expenses should include tuition, fees, transportation, food, housing, and personal and recreational costs. A typical budget for a commuter student living at home would be $31,714 while that for students living in the dorm or on their own could approximate $37,264. In the above estimated budgets, about $1,200 is set aside for textbooks, manuals, and consumable supplies, such as notebooks and score paper for the academic year. Resident students should be prepared to spend approximately $4,000 for a double room each semester. A minimum mandatory food plan will cost approximately $2,200 per semester. Resident students should expect to pay approximately $400 per semester for additional related fees.

116
STANDARD OF SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS — FOR THE PURPOSE OF DETERMINING ELIGIBILITY FOR STUDENT AID Students who are not maintaining satisfactory academic progress and pursuit of program according to established guidelines are not eligible for Federal Title IV, New York State financial aid and some private scholarships administered by Five Towns College. Federal Title IV aid includes the Federal College Work-Study, Federal Direct Loan (subsidized and unsubsidized), Federal Parent Loan (PLUS), Federal PELL Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant (ACG) and Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (SEOG). New York State awards include Tuition Assistance Program (TAP), the Higher Educational Opportunity Program (HEOP) and all other programs through New York State Higher Education Services Corporation. FEDERAL CRITERIA AND REQUIREMENTS Upon matriculation at the College, a student must make satisfactory academic progress consistent with the College’s Catalog and the U.S. Department of Education regulations. Every semester is taken into account when measuring a student’s progress, whether they received Federal Financial Aid or not. Students are expected to complete their program of study within 150% of the time required as published in the College Catalog. At the end of each semester a student must have earned hours equal to at least 67% of the cumulative hours attempted. After attempting more than 48 credits a student must have a cumulative CGPA of 2.0. • Attempted hours are defined as the hours for which the student is enrolled and charged by the 7th day of the semester. All credits attempted whether transfer credits or due to a change of major are taken into consideration. • Earned hours are defined as the sum of hours which a student has earned a grade of A, B, C, or D. Withdrawals, Incompletes, Audits and Failures are not earned hours. An ‘Incomplete’ must be graded prior to the start of the next semester to be considered earned for Federal Financial Aid purposes. • The higher grade of a repeated ‘F’ or ‘WU’ will be considered in calculating the student’s CGPA. As the student progresses in their degree program, the student must remember that credits not earned each semester according to the overall required timeframe (i.e., six years for Baccalaureate programs) will make it increasingly difficult to complete their program of study on time and not possible to withdraw from any future courses for which that student is registered. A student who fails to maintain the needed cumulative GPA or meet the completion rate requirements is placed on financial aid probation for one semester. A letter will be sent to the student. The student may continue to receive financial assistance during the probationary period. At the end of the probationary period the student will: • Be removed from probationary status because both cumulative GPA and completion rate standards are met; or • Be suspended from receiving assistance from federal and institutional sources and will receive a Financial Aid Suspension Letter. The students will no longer be eligible for Federal Financial Aid until they have taken classes, using their own funding, and have raised their cumulative GPA and completion rate to meet the necessary standards. NEW YORK STATE CRITERIA AND REQUIREMENTS Satisfactory Academic Progress/Program Pursuit – TAP Full-Time Student in a Baccalaureate Program
Before being Certified for this TAP payment A Student must have accrued at least this many credits With at least this Grade Point Average

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 *9 *10 * HEOP Student Only

0 6 15 30 45 60 75 90 105 120

0 1.5 1.8 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0 2.0

It should be noted that when using the chart, only semesters that a student receives a TAP payment are considered. Also, students who have received four semester payments of New York State TAP (24 payment points) MUST have a 2.00 cumulative index. This includes students who may have received TAP payments at another college prior to enrolling at Five Towns College. Students who are denied an award for failing to achieve a cumulative GPA of C can regain award eligibility by completing appropriate coursework—without state support—to achieve a cumulative GPA of C. Students cannot regain eligibility by remaining out of school for a period of time. Repeated Courses and Financial Aid New York State regulations mandate that if a student repeats a course in which a passing grade acceptable to the institution has been received previously, the course cannot be included as part of the student’s full-time course load for New York State financial aid purposes. However, when a failed course is repeated it may count toward full-time study.

117
Withdrawals and Leaves of Absence and Financial Aid Students who received New York State aid for a semester from which they withdraw or take a leave of absence and do not earn any academic credit are not considered to be meeting the state’s pursuit of program requirements and will not be eligible to receive state aid the following semester. The courses taken by a student that withdraws or takes a leave of absence during a semester is considered attempted but not completed in determining Federal aid eligibility. Incomplete Grades and Financial Aid A student with incomplete courses at the end of the semester must complete the coursework prior to the start of the next semester or may lose federal or state financial aid eligibility. If a student completes these courses during the next semester and regains academic progress, federal and state aid may be reinstated upon student request. FINANCIAL AID APPEAL PROCEDURE If it has been determined that a student is not maintaining satisfactory academic progress and/or pursuit of program because the student failed to meet one or all of the institution’s requirements, the student must obtain a waiver form from the registrar’s office. After completing the form and submitting it with necessary documentation, the Academic Standards Committee will review the appeal and the student will be notified of the decision. The following types of information may be considered in determining whether the student is eligible to be considered for a waiver: • • • • serious illness to student or immediate family death of immediate family member extreme personal emotional stress serious and/or unusual personal circumstances (not already mentioned above) NEW YORK STATE PROGRAMS TUITION ASSISTANCE PROGRAM (TAP) http://www.hesc.com After filing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) New York State will send either a TAP Award Certificate/Change form or a TAP application.

A student failing to meet Federal SAP requirements may appeal once. The committee may recommend to the student that he/she seek to regain eligibility without the use of a waiver by registering in one or more selected courses to increase the number of accrued credits and/or the grade point average. This procedure requires that tuition be paid for with personal funds.
