A Message From Brookdale’s President
Welcome to Brookdale! You join close to 100,000 friends and neighbors taking advantage of the resources and offerings of the County College of Monmouth. As one of the largest higher education institutions in New Jersey, Brookdale takes great pride in continuously challenging the future – with you in mind. Did you know that Brookdale is consistently listed as one of the top 50 community colleges in the United States? That we are the number one Associate Degree granting college in New Jersey? A nationally recognized leader in technology, Brookdale has invested over $25 million in its technology infrastructure systems and direct student technology access services. The $100 million campus facility master plan has enabled new Counseling, Admission and Registration Centers, a stateof-the-art Bankier Library as well as a Student Life Center complete with college and convenience stores, meeting spaces and dedicated space for student use. The expanded Automotive Technologies building opened in Spring 2010 and an expanded Arena and new Fitness Lab is expected to be completed in 2011. One of every four Brookdale students is enrolled in a class at one of our Higher Education Centers. All of our Centers have been equipped with the latest in technology, expansive student success centers and convenient parking. Extensive renovations have taken place at the Long Branch Higher Education Center and over $10 million dollars in renovations have been completed at the Western Monmouth Branch Campus. At the Wall Higher Education Center, home of the New Jersey Coastal Communiversity, we provide a broad array of Baccalaureate and graduate programs - including over 40 degrees available from Georgian Court University - to record-setting numbers of residents of Monmouth County. You, our Monmouth County neighbors, are the reason that Brookdale was founded. You are the reason we continue to grow and challenge the future. Thanks for joining us!

Brookdale Philosophy
Brookdale Community College values most, the individual learner. The College respects the differences in needs, strengths, and weaknesses in each person. We respect the right of each individual to strive, to struggle to succeed — the right to be unique. We further value the experience of learning and count it among the most satisfying of human activities. We believe all education is a life-long activity, which enhances every aspect of human existence. We see that developing career skills and developing individual human potential are equally valuable. Each makes its contribution to the fullness of life. We recognize the interrelatedness of all learning and the benefit gained by freedom of thought and expression. Effective education promotes awareness of the intricate relationships, which exist among people and between individuals and their environment. The development of individual potential is inevitable related to what society permits, encourages, or maintains. Therefore, we urge students to accept their responsibility for improving society. Brookdale Community College commits itself to the task of creating an atmosphere, which fosters individual and societal growth and achievement. The College is dedicated to using the community as a laboratory for learning. College staff and administration work closely with local organizations and agencies when applicable.

Mission
Brookdale Community College provides a comprehensive array of quality, affordable educational choices leading to transfer and career opportunities, certificates and associate degrees, access to post-associate learning, lifelong learning, and community development. Brookdale is an open-access, future-oriented institution committed to student success and development in a socially diverse environment.

Values
These Values guide the Brookdale community in the fulfillment of our Mission; each being of equal weight and importance. • Students and Student Success Brookdale Community College values our students and their academic and personal success; their learning and achievement are the hallmarks of our mission. • One Brookdale Brookdale Community College values the philosophy of One Brookdale. One Brookdale represents a collective commitment by all employees to demonstrate a consistent, appropriate and comparable level of teaching and service excellence throughout the entire College, across all locations, creating and communicating a dynamic synergy of intent and action focused on student success.

Introducing Brookdale

About Brookdale
The College was founded in 1967 and is sponsored by the citizens of Monmouth County through the Board of Chosen Freeholders. Equal opportunity for all is a College mandate; the College does not discriminate against anyone on any basis, either in education or in employment practices. An appointed Board of Trustees sets policy, fixes tuition and fees and continually monitors education programs. Brookdale is an open admission college, available to anyone 18 years of age or older, anyone who is a high school graduate or holder of an equivalency diploma. (A limited number of programs have specific admission criteria.) If a student does not have a high school diploma or an equivalency diploma, he or she may still enroll at Brookdale as long as the student is 18 or older. Students wishing to gain equivalency diplomas may do so by completing a sequence of 30 Brookdale credits and passing a test. A program is provided for persons who wish to earn equivalency diplomas without attending the College. The program is offered at the Western Monmouth Branch Campus, the Eastern Monmouth and Long Branch Higher Education Centers and is geared toward the New Jersey High School Equivalency Examination. Brookdale is open all year and operates on a term-based system. There are two traditional 15-week terms that begin in September and January. In addition, 6-week and 10-week terms run during summer, an 11-week term is offered during each traditional term and a 2-week Winterim term is offered during winter break. Additional terms may be added based on community need. Classes tend to meet once or twice a week, depending on the length of the academic term and the course content. Classes are scheduled through the day, evening, online and on weekends, to meet the demands of working people as well as traditional full-time students. Courses are offered not only on the Lincroft campus, but also at various locations throughout the county. The Long Branch, Eastern Monmouth, Northern Monmouth, Wall Higher Education Centers and the Western Monmouth Branch Campus offer a wide range of courses as well as courses offered at the Sandy Hook Environmental Field Station. They all are accessible from most areas by public transportation. There is no typical Brookdale student. People of all ages come to the College to meet education goals as varied as the people themselves. Many are enrolled full time (12 credits or more), or part time, in programs designed

for transfer to four-year colleges. Others are pursuing programs designed to prepare them for employment upon graduation. Persons already working attend Brookdale to upgrade skills and enhance chances for promotion or to explore new areas to facilitate career change. Many students are here because they love to learn. The courses they select enrich their personal lives. In keeping with the College’s dedication to open and innovative education, learning at Brookdale is oriented toward success. Each course syllabus has learning outcomes, course requirements, grading standards, course content, notification for students with disabilities and reference to additional support and labs. Teaching and counseling faculty members schedule office hours to answer student questions. Learning assistants are available for tutoring, to go over tests, and assist students in completing class work. In the laboratories, lab assistants perform similar functions for students needing help in performing projects or experiments.

Not later than seven (7) business days after receiving the records request, access will be granted or denied to all other government records provided record is currently available, not in use and not in storage or archived. Failure of the Custodian of Government Records to respond within seven business days after receiving a request is deemed a denial, unless the requester has elected not to provide a name, address or telephone number, or other means of contacting the requester, in which case the Custodian of Government Records shall not be required to respond until the requester reappears before the Custodian seeking a response to the original request. The requester is entitled to be advised in advance of the estimated amount of fees and charges to be imposed by the College for the reproduction costs and other special services requested.

Right of Appeal
A person who is denied access to government records by the Custodian, at the option of the requester, may institute a proceeding challenging the Custodian’s decision by (1) filing a complaint with the Government Records Council, NJ Division of Local Government Services by telephone, 609-292-4584; fax 609-292-9073 or by e-mail: Mpfeiffer@dca. state.nj.us, or (2) by filing an action in the Superior Court, Monmouth County Courthouse, Freehold, NJ.

Notice of Right to Access Government Records of Brookdale Community College
The New Jersey Public Access to Government Records Act N.J.S.A. 47:1A-1 et. seq. (the “Act”) requires that the College grant members of the public access to government records as defined in the Act. The Act safeguards from disclosure proprietary and private records and information. Requests for records should be made to the Executive Assistant to the President. The President’s office is located on the second floor of the Brookdale Administrative Center. Requesters must fill out a form specific to their request, which is available in the President’s office. Requests for government records may be made anonymously. Upon payment of the applicable fee, the College is required to make government records available within the following time periods: Immediate access will be provided to budgets, bills, vouchers, contracts, including collective negotiations agreements, individual employment contracts, and public employee salary and overtime information. Immediate access will be provided as soon as reasonably possible following receipt of the request if the record is not being used and is not in archive storage.

The Higher Education Opportunity Act
The Higher Education Opportunity Act (HEOA) requires the College to disclose and report on numerous items. Many of these are included throughout this catalog. Information pertaining to Student Consumer Information is available from the Brookdale home page at www. brookdalecc.edu/pages/3602.asp.

Degrees And Certificates
The Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in The Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) and Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree programs are designed for transfer to four-year colleges. These degrees give students grounding in their major fields of study, along with the general studies required of freshmen and sophomores in four-year schools. Students who graduate with an A.A. or A.S. Degree and transfer to a New Jersey Public Institution receive the benefits of transfer registration. See page 43 for the rules and requirements.

The Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree programs are career-related. Students receive education and training in the skills needed for employment, plus the general studies designed to turn out well-rounded employees. While some credits may transfer to four-year institutions, the A.A.S. programs are not designed for transfer. In some study areas, certificate programs are available. These contain fewer credits than the degree programs, and certify students as competent in a particular employment area.

Until all records have been received, degree students are listed as “provisional.” Provisional students may register for courses, but will be notified during the term if records are not received. Records must be provided before a student may register for any subsequent term. Degree students must select a major field, bearing in mind that this program selection may be changed at any time. Those unsure about a major field of study should indicate a general interest area. The admission process cannot continue until a major field or interest area has been declared.

Transfer Students
Degree students transferring to Brookdale after gaining credits elsewhere are required to submit official transcripts of credits from their other colleges or post-secondary schools. Non-remedial credits with grades of “C” (2.0) or above may be accepted toward Brookdale degrees, if they are applicable to the chosen program.

Students needing such work must take and satisfactorily complete the developmental courses, although credits do not count towards graduation. Students whose scores indicate no need for developmental work may not enroll in them.

3. Non-matriculating students registering for their 12th credit. 4. Non-matriculating students below the 12th credit who wish to register for basic skills courses or a course with basic skills pre/ co-requisites. 5. Students at the end of the ESL sequence. Students are entitled to one retest per subject area. Retests are given in the Testing Center, located on the lower level of the CAR building on a walk-in basis, and at the Higher Education Centers and Branch Campus by appointment. The exception to this is the Writing test which must be taken in the Writing Center in LAH118. Please call 732-224-2941 for Writing Center hours and information.

A referral from a counselor is required before a retest can be administered. (A deadline date is added to the referral form as determined by the counselor.) Students identified as requiring developmental coursework will be placed in those courses as follows: • Basic Skills Reading: within the first 12 credits • Basic Skills Writing: within the first 12 credits • Basic Skills Mathematics (Algebra and/ or Pre-algebra): within the first 12 credits unless the counselor determines that developmental reading and writing should be completed first; in that case, in the first semester following completion of required developmental reading. In order to fulfill Basic Skills requirements, students must pass all required basic skills courses. Students who do not complete a basic skills course are required to re-register for the course in the next term. The Registrar will notify students who fail any course(s) including basic skills courses indicating that they must contact their Counselor regarding future course enrollment. Students may not register for any course for which they have not met Basic Skills prerequisites or co-requisites. (In a 2 or 3 course sequence, students must take the next course in the sequence.) Basic Skills Placement Test scores are good for three (3) years. After three (3) years have passed, students must either retest or see a Counselor to be placed in courses based on current skills.

Counseling
All degree (matriculated) students must make an appointment to see a student development specialist (counselor) to work with over the course of their educational career at Brookdale. See page 30 for a complete description of the Counseling Division and Student Development Services. It is the responsibility of the student development specialist (counselor) to assist degree students in selecting courses that meet particular goals. After discussion with the student, the counselor will generate a program plan form or a course registration form. Students are then prepared to register, and should do so at the Office of Registration on the first available date. Degree students should make an appointment with their counselor before registering for any subsequent term. NOTE: While Counselors make recommendations and in many cases must formally approve classes, students are responsible and accountable for final course selection and registration.

Basic Skills
Courses in basic skills reading, writing and mathematics are provided to help prepare students to succeed in college and to ensure the integrity of college-level courses. The program consists of testing, placement, counseling, courses and support services. The objectives of Basic Skills at Brookdale Community College are to: • Assess and identify students’ academic needs; • Address these needs through counseling and basic skills coursework in writing, reading and mathematics and related support services; • Establish requirements for enrollment in and completion of necessary basic skills courses. The College will provide Accuplacer placement testing to identify and assess students’ academic needs. Students identified as needing development in the skills necessary to succeed in college-level courses are required to take and pass Basic Skills courses as outlined below.

These checks are conducted by an external vendor and the information is sent to the College and to clinical agencies. Agency personnel will evaluate the information they receive and, in their sole discretion, make the final determination as to each student’s ability to continue to engage in patient care in their agency. If a student is denied clinical placement by any clinical agency due to criminal history information, that student will be dropped from the program. Participation in Clinical Laboratory is also contingent on a satisfactory medical examination report from a physician or nurse practitioner. Brookdale maintains contracts with affiliated facilities which stipulate participation by students whose health and scholastic progress assure a safe level of clinical performance.

Should these criteria not be met at any point, a student may be dismissed from the program. Applicants are accepted on a first-come, firstserved basis until the classes are filled. The number of students admitted depends on the availability of faculty and clinical facilities.

Eligibility screening will be conducted prior to the start of the fall semester. Step 6 – Classes Begin With successful completion of steps 1 through 5, selected students will begin the 21-month degree program in the fall semester, which begins in September. For information on this program call (732) 224-2791 or (732) 212-4154.

Non-Degree Students
Non-degree students are those not enrolled in programs of study leading to degrees or certificates. These students may take up to 11 Brookdale credits without declaring a major. Non-degree students may convert to matriculated status at any time. Nondegree students must file the Brookdale application, and they may register. Although non-degree students are not required to meet with a student development specialist (counselor), this service is available and highly recommended. Certain courses require pre-registration testing. Non-degree students should consult this catalog to determine if the courses they wish to take require the Basic Skills Placement Test.

Pre-Registration Testing/ Matriculation
A non-degree student who has completed 11 credits at Brookdale will be required to take a Basic Skills Placement Test and declare a major, or to meet waiver requirements, before being allowed to register for the 12th credit.

Counseling
Meeting with a counselor (Student Development Specialist) is not required for non-degree students. However, counseling is available; non-degree students wishing to consult counselors should inquire at the Admissions Office to learn the counselor’s name and location. See page 30 for a complete description of Counseling and Student Development services. Non-degree students should consult catalog course descriptions and the Master Schedule carefully. A non-degree student who drops a course or is dropped from a course because of the lack of appropriate prerequisites will not receive a refund.

not withdraw from classes for which they have not completed required course work may be dropped at any time with no refund. Based on certain eligibility requirements, students may be able to add and/or drop classes online. To determine eligibility, go to Webadvisor (through Brookdale’s home page), enter Webadvisor for Students, click on the link FAQ, and read question #25 “Can I register online?” If a student adds a course(s) the student must pay any additional tuition and fees. If a student drops a course(s) and is eligible for a refund, a check will be mailed. Students must drop courses OFFICIALLY during the refund period to receive a refund. Students who do not officially drop a course during the refund period are responsible for all fees and tuition payments. In addition, if students stop attending a course(s) during a term, students must OFFICIALLY withdraw from the course(s). The Master Schedule defines the time lines within which a drop/withdrawal may be completed and lists the refund eligibility dates. Students who withdraw from all classes because of serious illness, attested to in writing by a physician, may receive a full refund of tuition and fees. THE REFUND MUST BE REQUESTED DURING THE TERM IN WHICH THE STUDENT’S ILLNESS OCCURS. All requests for medical refunds should be sent to the Registration Office. Students who withdraw to enter the Armed Forces of the United States may be granted a full tuition and fee refund. They must write to the Registrar to request the refund, and enclose a copy of the enlistment papers.

Once The Term Begins…
Attendance Policy
Individual instructors determine the attendance policy for their courses. Instructors will distribute their attendance policy in the syllabi or instructor addendum. It is the responsibility of the student to know and adhere to the attendance policy specified for each class. Attendance may affect a student’s eligibility for financial aid and veterans’ benefits.

Priority Registration
After the initial semester of study, students will receive priority registration passes through email. The initial days of each registration period are reserved for returning students to ensure their registration for courses required to complete programs. On the priority pass is a time and a date. Students may register at that time and date, or thereafter. Students are urged to take advantage of priority passes since courses fill up quickly and lines become lengthy later in the registration period. Provisional students will not receive a priority registration pass.

Refunds
Students may withdraw from courses without financial penalty at any time BEFORE the first day of a term. Students wishing to do so must file an Add/Drop Form in person in the Registration Office. A full tuition refund will be granted prior to the first day of the term; a check will be mailed within four to six weeks. As of the first day of the term, refund amounts are reduced and are granted for tuition only. All fees are non-refundable. Brookdale’s refund policy states that a student may receive 100% refund of tuition and fees up until the day before the first day of the term; 80% refund of tuition only, no fees during the first week of the term; 60% refund of tuition only, no fees during the second week of the term and no refund after the second week of the term. See the Master Schedule for exact dates for refund periods. Students are responsible for knowing these dates. Courses that the College drops from the schedule are not the student’s responsibility. Students in deleted courses will be notified by email and the College will also try to contact students by telephone. Students may elect to choose other courses and pay additional tuition and fees if the credit total is larger, or receive a refund by mail if they opt for courses with fewer credits. If a student does not wish to select another course, a full refund will automatically be mailed.

Open Registration
New students may register on or after the first day of open registration listed in the Master Schedule. Students with credits from other institutions or who have relevant field experience may be required to provide transcripts or to meet with Brookdale faculty to determine eligibility to take particular courses.

Course Cancellation Policy
When students register for courses and the paid course is canceled or the time is changed, students will be informed by email or by telephone. Students can replace the canceled course through the appropriate Division Office. If for any reason students have to change their schedule, an Add/Drop form must be completed in the Registration and Records Office.

Credit by Examination (CLEP and Dantes)
Testing Services offers CLEP and DSST assessments, which are credit-by-examination programs for students who have gained knowledge elsewhere — in school, on the job, in the military, through independent study, or through other learning experiences. Creditby-examination testing may allow students to bypass subjects in which they already have college-level knowledge. With the time and money saved, students can take courses that are more interesting and challenging. The CLEP and DSST tests, given exclusively on computers, consist of a variety of general education and subject examinations. Students may choose any

Adding/Dropping Courses
Be advised that students are responsible for ensuring that all pre and co-requisite requirements are met. Students who register for classes before grades are finalized must drop any classes if they do not successfully pass the pre or co-requisite subject. Students who do

internships and other experiences have additional time requirements depending on the program. The maximum amount of credits students can take during the Long Terms (Fall, Spring, and Summer II Terms) for matriculated students (Degree) is 16 credits. Cumulative maximum for non-degree students is 11 credits. For the Winterim Term the maximum credit load is 4 credits; for Summer I and Summer III terms the maximum for all students is seven (7) credits. Students wishing exceptions should meet with their counselor.

Student Records
The College maintains the following records on individual students: Academic and Veteran Records – The Records Office is located in the CAR building (park in lot #5). These include: record of course completions, admission application, high school transcripts, advanced standing evaluations, course substitutions, referrals, change of data, related correspondence, etc. Financial Aid Records – The Financial Aid Office is located in the CAR building (park in lot #5). These include: certification applications, promissory notes, course registrations, related correspondence, etc. Student Development Records – Maintained by individual counselors, these include: high school and college transcripts, program plans, graduation evaluations, referrals, course substitutions, results of diagnostic and psychological testing batteries, related correspondence, etc. Record of Disciplinary Action – Office of Student Life and Activities, Warner Student Life Center. Health Records – Health Services, first floor, Main Academic Central (MAC 112). Students who wish to inspect and review their educational records may do so by obtaining and completing a “Request to Review Educational Records” form at the Records Office. The office is open from 8:30 AM to 7 PM. Monday through Thursday, from 8:30 AM to 5 PM on Fridays, and from 9 AM to noon on Saturdays (See Master Schedule for summer hours). Upon receiving the form, an attempt will be made to schedule an appointment for a review of the records within seven days. As part of this procedure students may request copies of information contained in their educational records. The minimum fee for reproducing copies is one dollar ($1).

If, following the inspection, a student believes that a factual inaccuracy is contained within the records; students should contact the office maintaining the record in question concerning the inaccuracy. That department will attempt to settle the dispute regarding records content through informal meetings and discussions with the student and a member of the appropriate department. If such informal means do not result in a student obtaining satisfaction, submit a written request to the Dean of Enrollment Development and Student Affairs requesting a hearing to arbitrate the dispute. The hearing will be conducted and decided within a reasonable period of time (in no case to exceed 45 days) following the request for a hearing, and a written decision will be rendered. Access to the records listed in this section will be given to College personnel with a legitimate educational interest in the records as determined by the College. Information will be released to other agencies and individuals in compliance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, a copy of which is available for your inspection at the Records Office.

A student’s grade point average for a term is computed by multiplying credits times grade points and dividing the total by the number of credits attempted.

Withdrawal
Students are allowed to withdraw from a course, without academic penalty until fourfifths of the course or semester has been completed (i.e., the twelfth week of a fifteen week course). Consult the Master Schedule for specific dates. Students must officially withdraw by completing an add/drop form in the Registration Office or they will not be dropped from the class. Financial Aid students should contact the Financial Aid Office prior to withdrawing since it may affect current and/or future aid.

Pass / No Credit Option for Above Zero-Level Courses
A student may take a course at the 100 level or higher on a Pass/No Credit basis. A grade of Pass is earned if the student completes the course at the “Satisfactory” (C) level or above. A grade of “No Credit” is recorded if the student fails the course or completes the course at the “Marginal” (D) level. A student may change from Pass/No Credit to the A-F grade option or from the A-F grade option to Pass/No Credit, up to the end of the third week of the Fall or Spring Terms or 20% of any shorter term. A maximum of two courses (maximum eight credits) taken on a Pass/No Credit basis may be used toward the degree. This option may not be used for a course in the student’s major.

Audit
A student who wishes to attend a class but does not want to receive credit or a grade may register for the class and request permission to audit it. All tuition and applicable fees are charged for the course. Students may not change from credit to audit or from audit to credit after the end of the Add/Drop period.

Incomplete
An Incomplete (INC) may be assigned at the discretion of the course faculty for students who have extraordinary circumstances of documented hardship or emergency. These are students who have been actively participating throughout the term and have completed a significant portion of the course in a satisfactory manner but approach the end of the term without completing all assignments. The following process should be followed: • The student contacts the faculty member with the appropriate documentation.

Repetition
If a course is repeated, both grades will appear on the transcript but only the higher grade will be included in the GPA calculation.

Changing Grades
If a student thinks a grade received was not a true representation of efforts, then the student should consult with the faculty member. If a decision to change the grade is made, then the faculty member will submit a change of grade form. Check student on-line information from the Brookdale home page a few weeks later to make sure the new grade is properly recorded on the student transcript.

The student must have successfully completed at least 12 credits, i.e., no D’s, F’s or W’s, before applying for Academic Amnesty. The GPA for all course work taken during this time must be at least a 2.0. Academic Amnesty can be granted one time only. All courses below Credit or C level during the student’s previous attendance will be included when Academic Amnesty is declared. All previous coursework will continue to appear on the student’s transcript; however the excluded coursework will not be included in the calculations for the cumulative GPA. Academic Amnesty Applied will appear on transcripts to indicate the separation of past coursework from the current. Academic Amnesty does not affect or alter the student’s records for financial aid eligibility. Students must meet with a counselor before applying for Academic Amnesty to ensure the guidelines are met, and to secure approval. The Dean of Academic Affairs will grant final approval. Students granted Academic Amnesty must maintain regular contact with their counselor to monitor academic progress.

a student’s tenure at Brookdale, the student may still graduate by meeting the requirements in force during the first term of that program. Students who withdraw for a year and are later re-admitted or change programs must follow graduation requirements in effect in the re-entry term. In rare circumstances, a course substitution may be made for a program requirement. Academic Division Dean Approval is required for the substitution. Exceptions to all these rules may be made for persons attending Brookdale as members of the Servicemembers Opportunity College (SOC). Candidates for an Associate Degree or Certificate are expected to conform to the graduation requirements which are in effect during the term in which they originally matriculated in that program or term readmitted following one year of non-attendance. A Candidacy for Graduation Request Form must be filed with a Counselor by students who wish to receive an Associate Degree or Certificate from Brookdale Community College. The Candidacy for Graduation Request Form should be filed at the beginning of the term in which the student plans to complete requirements for graduation. This form must be submitted to their counselor by the deadlines listed below: Summer II & III Term – July 1 Fall Term – October 15 Winterim – December 7 Spring & Summer I – February 15 Each year, candidates for graduation will be charged a fee (amount to be set each year) to cover graduation expenses, such as cap and gown, diploma, etc. Commencement exercises are held in May each year. Notification to candidates is sent in March and diplomas are mailed within 12 weeks after certification.

Graduation Requirements
From the beginning of a college career at Brookdale, students must be aware of the requirements for graduation for their particular program. These requirements include the general education component specified for each type of degree (see page 53) plus the career studies that may be listed as set requirements or may involve choices. All of these are listed in the individual program descriptions that are listed alphabetically beginning on page 57. Counselors work with students in selecting courses geared toward graduation and toward meeting the student’s academic, personal and career goals. The courses necessary for award of Brookdale certificates are also clearly listed in the catalog. No more than 50% of the credits towards a degree can be accepted from another college or from CLEP and other equivalency testing programs toward Brookdale graduation. In addition, half of a program’s career studies credits must be earned at Brookdale. For certificates, one half of the total credits must be earned at Brookdale. A candidate for a degree, diploma or certificate must attain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C) or higher. Students who wish to graduate from Brookdale should be aware that, in most cases, the final 15 credits toward a degree or certificate must be taken at Brookdale. In certain cases, the Dean of Enrollment Development and Student Affairs may waive this requirement, and students may earn their final 15 credits at another institution. The student develops a contract, working with the counselor and the Dean, to transfer credits back to Brookdale. The contract will be filed with the student’s records. When students meet the contract’s terms, they should apply to the Dean for a Brookdale degree and be ready to show that the contract’s terms were met.

Brookdale encourages all students to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). It’s free, it’s easy and it’s fast! Brookdale participates in several programs of tuition assistance for degree students who can demonstrate financial need. Among these are grants, loans, scholarships and employment. To be eligible for any of these, the student must be a citizen of the United States or an eligible non-citizen as defined by INS. Anyone applying for financial aid should file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) on-line at www.fafsa.gov which is used to determine eligibility for all federal, state and college awards.

This policy applies to all students receiving assistance from any financial aid program (including loans) administered by the Financial Aid Office at Brookdale Community College and includes the entire academic record. This policy is monitored once per year for all students and at the end of each term for students on probation or appeal. To receive financial aid, the student must maintain satisfactory academic progress toward a degree or certificate and must complete their educational program within 150% of the published length of their educational program.

Applicable state and federal laws and institutional rules and regulations governing interpersonal behavior limit the boundaries of personal freedom. In creating a community free from violence, sexual assault and nonconsensual sexual contact, respect for the individual and human dignity are of paramount importance. The State of New Jersey recognizes that the impact of violence on its victims and the surrounding community can be severe and long lasting. Thus, it has established a “Bill of Rights” to articulate requirements for policies, procedures and services designed to insure that the colleges and universities in New Jersey create and maintain communities that support human dignity. Bill of Rights The following Rights shall be accorded to victims of sexual assault that occur: • On the campus of any public or independent institution of higher education in the State of New Jersey, and • Where the victim or alleged perpetrator is a student at that institution, and/or • When the victim is a student involved in an off-campus sexual assault. Human Dignity Rights: • To be free from any suggestion that victims must report the crimes to be assured of any other right guaranteed under this policy. •• To have any allegations of sexual assault treated seriously; the right to be treated with dignity. • To be free from any suggestion that victims are responsible for the commission of crimes against them. •• To be free from any pressure from campus personnel to: report crimes if the victim does not wish to do so; report crimes as lesser offenses than the victim perceives the crime to be; refrain from reporting crimes; refrain from reporting crimes to avoid unwanted personal publicity. Rights to Resources On and Off Campus: • To be notified of existing campus and community based medical, counseling, mental health and student services for victims of sexual assault whether or not the crime is formally reported to campus or civil authorities.

• To have access to campus counseling under the same terms and conditions as apply to other students in their institution seeking such counseling. • To be informed of and assisted in exercising: any rights to confidential or anonymous testing for sexually transmitted diseases, human immunodeficiency virus, and/or pregnancy or any rights that may be provided by law to compel and disclose the results of testing of sexual assault suspects for communicable diseases. Campus Judicial Rights: • To be afforded the same access to legal assistance as the accused. • To be afforded the same opportunity to have others present during any campus disciplinary proceeding that is allowed the accused. • To be notified of the outcome of the sexual assault disciplinary proceeding against the accused. Legal Rights: • To have any allegation of sexual assault investigated and adjudicated by the appropriate criminal and civil authorities of the jurisdiction in which the sexual assault is reported. • To receive full and prompt cooperation and assistance of campus personnel in notifying the proper authorities. • To receive full, prompt, and victim-sensitive cooperation of campus personnel with regard to obtaining, securing, and maintaining evidence, including a medical examination when it is necessary to preserve evidence of the assault. Campus Intervention Rights: • To require campus personnel to take reasonable and necessary actions to prevent further unwanted contact of victims by their alleged assailants. • To be notified of the options for and provided assistance in changing academic and living situations if such changes are reasonably available. Statutory Mandates: • Each campus must guarantee that this Bill of Rights is implemented. It is the obligation of the individual campus governing board to examine resources dedicated to services required and to make appropriate requests to increase or reallocate resources where necessary to ensure implementation.

Visiting Student Status
A “visiting student” is anyone who is matriculated and in good standing at a college or university other than Brookdale Community College. Visiting Students are not required to take the Basic Skills Placement Test or to meet with a Brookdale Counselor – unless the student is registering for developmental “zero-level” courses. Visiting students do not need to submit a letter from their home institution giving them permission to take courses at Brookdale. It is the visiting student’s responsibility to verify that the course(s) taken at Brookdale will transfer to the home institution, and that the student has the prerequisites necessary to succeed in the course(s). It is very important to meet with the student’s home institution advisor and review the Brookdale course descriptions. This will ensure that what is taken at Brookdale meets requirements and transfers back to the home institution. For more information, call the College’s Enrollment Hotline at 732-224-2345.

Campus Sexual Assault Victim’s Bill Of Rights
A college or university in a free society must be devoted to the pursuit of truth and knowledge through reason and open communication among its members. Academic communities acknowledge the necessity of being intellectually stimulating where the diversity of ideas is valued. Its rules must be conceived for the purpose of furthering and protecting the rights of all members of the university community in achieving these ends.

Counselors (Student Development Specialists)
NOTE: While Counselors make recommendations and in many cases must formally approve classes, students are responsible and accountable for final course selection and registration. Professionally trained Counselors, known at Brookdale as Student Development Specialists, help students make clear decisions related to their educational goals and overall development. Working both individually and in groups, Counselors can help students build their academic degree programs, clarify career goals, tailor Brookdale course work toward specific transfer purposes, and address personal counseling needs which might affect their academic progress. A Counselor can also be the student’s primary liaison with the teaching faculty. Although counseling services are available on an as-needed basis, emphasis may be placed on certain counseling services at different points in the student’s educational career. For example, early on the Counselor will interpret the Basic Skills Placement Test and help students select courses that reflect their initial academic and career interests. As students make progress, helping them assess career interests and clarify transfer goals becomes more important. The need for personal counseling may arise at any time, and

The Center for Experiential Learning and Career Services
The Experiential Learning and Career Services Department offers programs designed to complement the student’s academic study with “hands-on” experiences in the real world and services to help them attain their career goals. Whether placed with an employer in a work experience related to their major, or volunteering in a community service project as an integrated component of their course work, students develop valuable skills for the future. Programs and Services include: • Internships (credit) • Externships (credit) •• Cooperative Education (non-credit) • Service Learning (community service volunteer) • Field Experiences • Work Study • Student Help •• Alumni Services • Career Development Workshops • Job Search Assistance The benefits of Experiential Learning are clear. Participants are better prepared for career decision making, as they move into either permanent employment, or continue their education. Participants have a greater “edge” in securing a job, and enrolling in a four-year college. All Experiential Learning activities are recorded on the student’s transcript. Internships/Cooperative Education/ Externships Students interested in participating in either Internship/Externship (credit) or Cooperative Education (non-credit) must meet program eligibility. All students must be: (1) matriculated, (2) have completed the number of course credits in their major required by the department and (3) have the approval of an instructor and Experiential Learning Representative. Both the credit and non-credit work experiences require the completion of learning objectives, employer evaluation and an evaluation meeting with an Experiential Learning Representative. Service-Learning Service-Learning combines academic study and community service, providing a unique opportunity for students to learn through active participation in organized service experiences in the community. Service-Learning puts education into action, leading out from self into the world. Service-Learning course options are

offered as an alternative to more traditional classroom assignments. Students choosing this option are required to provide between 20-50 hours of volunteer community service hours in activities related to their course work, enhancing their learning through participation. Experiential Learning staff meets with students to determine area of interest, time constraints, and a service project appropriate to the course of study. Approval for the project is required from the instructor. Work Study Students who qualify under financial aid for the Work Study Program work with Experiential Learning and Career Services staff who match the students’ skills with appropriate campus/off campus jobs. Student Help Students who are in good academic standing and are currently enrolled for a minimum of six credits may be able to find on-campus work opportunities through Student Help Programs. For these positions, financial aid eligibility is not a criterion. Job Search Assistance The services are available to all Brookdale students and alumni.

Learning Communities
In higher education Learning Communities are classes that are linked or clustered during an academic term, often around an interdisciplinary theme, and enroll a common cohort of students. A variety of approaches are used to build learning communities, with all intended to restructure the student’s time, credit and learning experiences to build community among students, between students and their teachers, and among faculty members and disciplines.

Online Courses – Distance Education
Online courses are designed for active learners with excellent reading, writing and time management skills. Courses are offered over the Internet for access anytime, anywhere students have access to a computer. Courses are not self-paced, following a calendar with prescribed due dates to encourage interaction with the material, with the instructor, and fellow students. Many online courses require attendance at an initial orientation meeting, and some courses require proctored testing. All content and interaction for online courses occurs through a learning Management System, currently ANGEL. Look for sections coded DE in the master schedule and on Webadvisor. Students may choose to take courses online because of work schedules, military commitments, childcare, transportation issues, or time or mobility constraints. Online courses provide the adult learner with educational flexibility and life-long learning opportunities. Online courses offer the flexibility needed by many students while providing an equivalent learning experience to traditional face-to-face courses. Verifying the identity of students in Brookdale courses and programs is a significant, multifaceted and ongoing process. Identity verification begins when a student applies for admission to the institution and continues through graduation, transfer or withdrawal from study. Procedures related to student identity verification include but are not limited to: web registration, student information and records requests, and the course management system login and security functions wherein the appropriate College administrator(s) creates a unique username and password for each individual student every semester, which is then re-set every semester. This unique set of login credentials consists of data which the student is likely to know and which others are unlikely to know. The student is forced to use these credentials to access the course management system and reset their password to one which is entirely confidential and only known by the student. Data transmission of login information is secured using standard encryption technology. Students can earn an A.A. degree in Business Administration, Liberal Education, History, English, Psychology and Social Sciences online, or students may choose a schedule with a combination of online courses and face-to-face

courses. For specific program requirements for the Business Administration, Liberal Education, History, English Psychology and Social Sciences A.A. degree, see the Programs of Study section of the catalog. Students interested in the online degree should consult with a Student Development Specialist and may take the courses indicated. Students can take advantage of a self-test on the Online Course webpage www.brookdalecc. edu/pages/200.asp to determine if online courses are right for them.

Student Grade Appeal Process
The Student Grade Appeal Process provides the student with an opportunity to appeal a final course grade. Although the instructor of the course is the only individual who can change the final grade, this process provides an unbiased forum to discuss and dispute the final course grade. The student must initiate the process and be prepared to present supporting documentation. No adverse action will be taken against a student who chooses to utilize this process. THE GRADE APPEAL PROCESS MUST BE STARTED BEFORE THE END OF THE NEXT LONG (FIFTEEN WEEK) TERM. The Student Grade Appeal Process includes the following steps: Step 1: The student must meet with the course faculty member and discuss the issue of the grade appeal. If there is no resolution and the student intends to pursue the appeal, the student must obtain a Student Grade Appeal Form from http://www.brookdalecc. edu/pages/394.asp, their counselor, or any division office. The Student Grade Appeal Form must be completed, dated and signed by the course faculty member. Step 2: If the issue is not resolved at Step 1, within two weeks of completing Step 1, the student must contact the department chairperson* to arrange a meeting. The faculty member may be invited to this meeting if the department chairperson deems it appropriate. The student must attend the scheduled meeting and discuss the issue of the grade appeal with the department chairperson. The Student Grade Appeal Form must be completed, dated and signed by the department chairperson. *If the faculty member is also the department chair, proceed to the next step. Step 3: If the issue is not resolved at Step 2, within two weeks of completing Step 2, the student must contact the Academic Division Dean* to schedule a meeting. The student must attend the scheduled meeting and discuss the issue of the grade appeal. The Academic Division Dean will conduct an investigation of the situation. The Student Grade Appeal Form must be completed, dated and signed by the Academic Division Dean. *If the faculty member is also the Academic Division Dean, proceed to the next step. Step 4: If the issue is not resolved at Step 3, within two weeks of completing Step 3, the student must send a copy of the Student Grade Appeal Form to the Office of the Dean

of Academic Affairs and schedule a meeting. After meeting with the student and discussion with faculty, the Dean will review the appeal to determine if the student has appropriate grounds for appeal based on the statements in the syllabus and other instructor documents. If warranted, the Dean will convene the Academic Appeals Committee, which is a recommending body, to convene a hearing. If not, the Dean makes the determination that the grade stands. The student will be notified in writing of the Dean’s decision. Academic Appeals Committee: The Academic Appeal Committee is convened by the Dean of Academic Affairs after Step 4 when the grade is still in dispute and the Dean determines that the student has grounds for an appeal. The Academic Appeal Committee will be made up of two (2) faculty members, two (2) students and the Dean (or designee), who will be a non-voting member, except in the event of a tie. The faculty member and student involved in the appeal will have an opportunity to be heard before the Appeals Committee, and any employee involved in Steps 1-3 may be asked to comment before the Committee. Any other individuals who wish to participate must receive prior approval from the Dean. Within two (2) weeks after the hearing, the participants will be informed, in writing, of the Committee’s recommendation. The faculty member must complete the following steps within two weeks: 1. Review the recommendation. 2. Make the final decision if the recommendation is to change the grade. 3. Submit grade change if necessary. 4. Notify the Dean of Academic Affairs of final decision. The Dean will notify the student within one week. All employees involved in the Academic Appeal Process will keep a confidential record of their part of the process or a copy of the Appeal Form. Records of appeals will be confidential and will be maintained by the Office of the Dean of Academic Affairs. The records will be destroyed upon the student’s graduation from Brookdale or three (3) years from the date of the Committee’s recommendation, whichever comes first. Records may not be used in any detrimental way against the student or faculty member.

TRANSFER OPPORTUNITIES
New Jersey Transfer Law
New Jersey passed a law, the Lampitt Bill, in September 2007
regarding transfer from New Jersey community colleges to New Jersey four-year public colleges. The law provides for transfer of up to 60-64 credits for AA and AS degree graduates, but there are rules and regulations.
l l

Major to major transfer will work best under this law. If you change your mind about what you want to study after you transfer, you may not get credit for all of your courses. Some majors at the four-year college will take more than an additional two years to complete because program requirements are more than 120-128 credits (Architecture and Engineering are some examples). The law does not guarantee that you will be accepted; transfer admission to a public four-year college is still competitive. Some majors require you to complete specific courses and have higher grade point averages required to be eligible (Business, teaching programs, engineering are some examples) Follow General Education requirements listed in this catalog carefully. Choose your transfer major carefully. Choose your transfer school(s) as soon as you possibly can. Check your transfer school(s) program requirements (prerequi sites and course level, etc.).

Transfer Programs
The Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) and Associate in Fine Arts (A.F.A.) degree programs are designed for transfer to four-year colleges. These degrees give students grounding in their major fields of study, along with the general studies required of freshman and sophomores in four-year schools.

NJ Transfer
NJ Transfer is a website that provides information on transfer of community college courses to four-year institutions within the state. The initiative was developed jointly by the New Jersey Commission on Higher Education and the New Jersey Presidents’ Council, and evolved from the Rutgers University transfer pilot program (ARTSYS). Its many features allow you to learn which community college courses transfer to participating NJ four-year institutions and how they satisfy baccalaureate degree requirements for specific majors. The following four-year institutions in New Jersey are participating members of the NJ Transfer system: Berkeley College, Bloomfield College, Caldwell College, Centenary College, College of Saint Elizabeth, DeVry University, Drew University, Fairleigh Dickinson University, Felician College, Georgian Court University, Kean University, Monmouth University, Montclair State University, New Jersey City University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Ramapo College, Richard Stockton College, Rider University, Rowan University, Rutgers University, Saint Peter’s College, Seton Hall

University, The College of New Jersey, Thomas Edison State College, and William Paterson University. The website address for NJ Transfer is located at: http://www.njtransfer.org. See your counselor for information on using the NJ Transfer System.

Many Brookdale graduates transfer to four-year colleges to obtain baccalaureate degrees, with the largest number being accepted by Rutgers, Monmouth University, Kean University and the NJ Coastal Communiversity institutions. Students who plan to transfer should work closely with their counselors and should identify a major and potential transfer institution as early as possible.
Additional information can be found on the Transfer Resources/Articulation webpage at http://transfer.brookdalecc.edu. Students will be able to review New Jersey Transfer Law, articulation and dual admissions agreements as well as a number of transfer links to other colleges.

Transfer Agreements
In addition to NJ Transfer, the College has developed Transfer Agreements for one or more programs with the following out-of-state four year institutions: Drexel University, Laboratory Institute of Merchandising, Metropolitan College of New York (MCNY), The New School, Pennsylvania College of Technology and Savannah State University. For specific information on transferability of courses and programs, see your counselor.

Criminal Justice Program A.S. Degree
Corrections Option
The Corrections Option is aimed at providing students with the skills and knowledge to enter a career in institutional or community-based corrections. The tremendous growth of prisons and the prison population has resulted in career opportunities in corrections for criminal justice majors. A similar expansion of communitybased corrections has occurred to stem the prison building boom and reduce the cost of institutional corrections. Career opportunities in community-based corrections provide an opportunity to incorporate psychological and sociological course work in the criminal justice program. The Corrections Option is designed to provide alternative curricula for students who are interested in a career in law enforcement. Because transfer requirements vary, students should identify transfer schools as early as possible and work closely with counselors to insure selecting appropriate courses for smooth transfer.

Requirements
General Education – 30 credits as described on page 50.

Engineering Program A.S. Degree
Engineering is a profession that integrates science and mathematics with design and laboratory study. It is and will continue to be the profession upon which the United States depends for its growth and ability to compete in world markets. “Engineering offers more career options than any other discipline. It’s a profession that can take you from the depths of the ocean to the far reaches of outer space, from within the microscopic structures of the human cell to the top of the tallest skyscrapers. Whether it’s cell phones, digital cameras, DVDs, or facial recognition devices that can pick out a terrorist in a crowded football stadium, engineers are behind almost all of today’s exciting technology. Engineers are problem solvers who search for quicker, better, and less expensive ways to use the forces and materials of nature to meet today’s challenges.”1 At Brookdale Community College, the Engineering program parallels the first two years of the four-year engineering curriculum of most engineering schools throughout the country. The program leads to an Associate in Science degree in Engineering and transfers to most engineering schools. Brookdale has a Joint Admission Agreement with N.J.I.T. and an Articulation Agreement with Rutgers University. Students should consult a counselor. There are five major areas of study: • • • • • Chemical Engineering Civil Engineering Electrical Engineering Industrial Engineering Mechanical Engineering

Paralegal Studies Program A.A.S. Degree
The Paralegal Studies Program is approved by the American Bar Association, Standing Committee on Legal Assistants, 541 North Fairbanks Court, Chicago, IL 60611, (312) 988-5522, and is also an institutional member of the American Association for Paralegal Education (AAfPE), and maintains a chapter of the Lambda Epsilon Chi (LEX) Honor Society. The purpose of this program is to train paralegals/legal assistants. It is not intended to be a program for training lawyers or legal administrators. A paralegal/legal assistant may not engage in the practice of law by accepting cases, giving legal advice, appearing in court, setting fees, etc. Engaging in the unauthorized practice of law is a criminal offense in the State of New Jersey. The New Jersey State Bar Association defines a paralegal/ legal assistant as “an individual qualified through education, training or work experience who is retained by a lawyer, law office, governmental agency or other entity to perform, under the direction and supervision of a lawyer, specifically delegated substantive legal work, which for the most part requires sufficient knowledge of legal concepts and which, absent the paralegal or legal assistant, would be performed by a lawyer.” The Code of Ethics and Professional Responsibility of the National Association of Legal Assistants, Inc., in its Preamble, provides that it is the responsibility of every paralegal/legal assistant to adhere strictly to the accepted standards of legal ethics and to live by general principles of proper conduct. The performance of duties of the paralegal/legal assistant is governed by specific canons of ethics in order that justice will be served and the goals of the profession attained. This program, while not designed for transfer, may transfer in part or in its entirety to four-year schools.

Graduates of this program will be able to: f Draft legal documents f Exhibit technology skills f Perform computerized legal research f Utilize legal software programs f Utilize word processing to draft legal documents f Demonstrate ethical/professional responsibility
