League for Innovation in the Community College
Santa Fe Community College is a charter member of the League for Innovation in the Community College and is one of 19 League Board colleges. More than 750 institutions from 11 different countries are League affiliate members. The League, founded in 1968, is an educational consortium that functions specifically to stimulate innovation and experimentation. It is the only organization of its kind in the community college field and has achieved national recognition for the quality of its programs and activities. As a national organization with members in all sections of the country, the League influences community college development throughout North America. To this end, the League is not only committed to programs that contribute to the continuing improvement of member colleges, but also to providing opportunities for other community colleges to participate in its workshops, conferences, projects, and activities.

both our staff and students. The college aspires to transmit these values as well as foster in students the critical thinking and problem-solving skills, global perspective, and creativity necessary to make educated and ethical decisions in all aspects of their lives.

Statement of Vision, Values and Mission
Mission/Vision
Adding value to the lives of our students and enriching our community

Values
Santa Fe College is a dynamic, innovative learning community committed to: • Academic excellence, academic freedom, and intellectual pursuit • Individual and social responsibility • Honesty, integrity, and civility • Collaboration with our community • Open access • Lifelong learning • Assessment, accountability, and improvement • Sustainable use of environmental, social, and economic resources

Accreditation Status
Santa Fe Community College is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award the Associate degree. The college’s accreditation by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools was reaffirmed in December of 2002.In addition, Santa Fe Community College is accredited by the Florida State Department of Education. SFC holds membership in the Florida Association of Colleges and Universities and the American Association of Community Colleges. The college has been approved by the State of Florida as an institution in which recipients of general scholarship loans for the preparation of teachers may take their first two years of college work, and from which the State Department of Education will accept work to satisfy various certification requirements. SFC has also been approved by the state approving agency for the training of veterans under the provision of the various public laws relating to such training, and by the United States Office of Education for participation in the student program under Public Law 89-862, National Defense Act of 1958, and for various other programs relating to curriculum and physical facilities development.

History of the College
Santa Fe College was established by the state government in 1965 to offer wide access to quality higher education. Florida’s legislature, governor and Department of Education were responding to a request from Alachua and Bradford counties’ Boards of Public Instruction, which had canvassed the area and learned that the community would be well served if all citizens had the opportunity for an education and better life. Since then, SFC has established programs and services that enable the college to carry out its mission of educational opportunity, responsiveness to the community, and innovation in the public interest. The philosophy of the college during those years has been, and continues to be, one of student centeredness. Enrollment has grown rapidly. Fewer than 1,000 students enrolled when classes were first offered in September 1966. Today, more than 16,000 students take credit classes and 12,000 more take non-credit classes. Credit classes are given at the Northwest Campus, Andrews Center in Starke, Blount Center in downtown Gainesville, Davis Center in Archer, and Watson Center in Keystone Heights. A center for the Alachua area is planned. The Northwest Campus, which opened in 1972, is set on 175 acres in Gainesville next to Interstate 75. The Andrews Center opened in 1985 in the renovated Bradford County Courthouse, and expanded in 1991 with the addition of the restored Cultural Building and again in 2001 with the addition of the Lillian Stump Center. The Blount Center opened in 1990 in the renovated 6th Street railroad depot, expanded in 1993 with the addition of the renovated Gainesville Gas Co. Building, and again in 2006 with the Blount Classroom Building. The Davis Center opened in 2004. The Watson Center opened in 2005 with a second building added in 2006. All the centers were built with funds raised in community drives headed by the SFC

College Philosophy and Mission Statement of Philosophy
The philosophy of Santa Fe College is student-centered. Consistent with this philosophy, we value cultural diversity and serve all persons regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, gender, marital status, age or disability. The college believes that preparing students for healthy, productive lives in a democratic society is the chief obligation of the public educational system. Therefore, we seek to enable changes in individuals that allow them to live richer, more rewarding, and more useful lives. We further believe that educated people should be guided in their behavior by decency and civility; accordingly, we prize honesty, integrity, and social responsibility among

Endowment Corporation and operate to bring educational opportunity to residents in SFC’s Alachua-Bradford County service district. The college has expanded education programs by increasing the number of classes offered by electronic means such as the Internet and live broadcasts to the SFC centers. Almost 3,000 students take Internet classes through the Open Campus. SFC has had only four presidents. Dr. Joseph W. Fordyce was president from 1965 to 1971, when he was succeeded by Alan J. Robertson. Dr. Larry W. Tyree was named president in 1990 and was succeeded on Jan. 1, 2002 by Dr. Jackson N. Sasser. The growth and expansion of the college have two main causes: educational programs that are designed to meet the needs of students and a helpful learning environment that enables students to do their best. Educational offerings are primarily the Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Applied Science, and Community Education programs. The Associate of Arts program consists generally of liberal arts courses. Many students in this program intend to transfer to four-year colleges or universities. SFC sends more students to the University of Florida than does any other institution. Many former SFC students go to other four-year schools, public and private, in and out of state. The Associate of Science degree and certificate programs, called Technology and Applied Sciences, consist generally of vocational programs that prepare students for entry into a career, although some programs are transferable to universities. Surveys show that more than 90 percent of students in these programs either enter a career or go on to further higher education. Community Education offers non-credit leisure courses for personal growth. In all its credit programs, the college offers classes in several schedule formats to meet the needs of students. Classes are offered to suit the schedules of students. In addition to full semesters, SFC has classes in a half semester “flexterm” format, evening and “earlybird” classes that can be taken after or before a student goes to work, and classes on Saturdays. Academic life is highlighted by the SFC-University of Florida Foreign Languages Institute, an Honors Program, Phi Theta Kappa, a speech and debate team, and an International Initiative that features many study abroad programs. SFC’s Kirkpatrick Criminal Justice Training Center educates law enforcement and corrections officer recruits and offers programs to retrain sworn officers. The Kirkpatrick Center also trains students in the Emergency Medical Services, Fire Sciences and Aviation Sciences programs. The college is dedicated to economic development. Its Center for Business, located in a newly refurbished building at University Avenue and NW 6th Street, custom designs short, long and “eLearning” online courses for professionals, business, industry and government. Students seeking bachelor’s degrees can take classes at several colleges and universities through The SFC University Center without leaving Gainesville.

The student-centered learning environment at SFC is sustained by a network of counselors, advisors and helpful programs. Academic advisors give advice on classes to take. Students can choose group support by joining a “learning community” in which they take several courses with the same group of students. The student development offices help students decide upon a career or further higher education. Academic support programs offer tutoring and personal attention to help if students have difficulty in a subject. The college offers the Little School, an on-campus child care center. Veterans are honored with an active ROTC program and a Veterans Affairs office that serves students at SFC and the University of Florida. Campus life is rounded out with a student government, student clubs, activities and intramural athletics. The college competes intercollegiately in women’s fastpitch softball, men’s baseball, and men’s and women’s basketball. SFC offers many cultural activities to enrich the community’s quality of life. The Santa Fe Gallery, located on the Northwest Campus, features local and contemporary artists. Concerts, plays and dance performances offer students experience in the performing arts and enrich the cultural life of the community. The Dance Theatre of Santa Fe and Theatre Santa Fe hold numerous performances annually both on campus and at the Phillips Center, serving both the college and the public. Music Santa Fe sponsors workshops and performances in diverse musical traditions. SFC’s annual Spring Arts Festival attracts 130,000 visitors to Gainesville and is one of the community’s largest economic events. Santa Fe’s Bradford Fest is a significant arts and economic event in Bradford County. The college also presents sciences to the public. The “Circle of Science” on the Northwest Campus is composed of the Kika Silva Pla Planetarium, the Jean Klein Rock Cycle Garden which is a series of boulders arranged in geological order with interpretative plaques, and a geological atrium housing rocks, fossils and exhibits. Santa Fe’s Teaching Zoo is the only nationally accredited zoo on a college campus and attracts 39,000 visitors per year. The college offers to students and researchers its Geological Studies Field Station, a large network of caverns near Newberry in rural Alachua County.

of approximately 20 business and community leaders who served as “ambassadors of good will” throughout the community. In the spring of 1993 the SFC Endowment Corporation purchased the old Gainesville Gas Co. building located on the corner of NW 6th Street and West University Avenue. Renovation of the building was completed in the fall of 1993. The project provided the center an opportunity to expand student services and provide additional upper level classes to an increased student population. In December 1993 the Downtown Center was named for Charles L. Blount, its major contributor and fundraiser with more than $3 million contributed to establish the center. Charles Blount and his wife Patsy established a $3 million scholarship program at the college. The Blount Center has several purposes: • To provide an outreach center and educational training facility for the citizens in the central Gainesville area • To provide training programs for major businesses, small businesses and industry in the downtown area • To provide training and educational programs for existing employees of the city and county government that occupy the downtown complex • To provide an opportunity for community meeting rooms at no cost to civic clubs, business and professional groups, and underserved populations An opportunity for a college education is offered at the Charles L. Blount Center by means of a variety of college credit classes Monday through Thursday evenings. These college classes, along with the regular day classes, make it easier for individuals to fit a college class into their busy schedules. In 2005 the SFC East Gainesville Initiative and Community Outreach offices were relocated to the Charles L. Blount Center. In the following year Santa Fe’s offices for administering the Carl D.

Outreach Centers and Programs Andrews Center
In 1983 the historic courthouse in Bradford County, and some of the surrounding properties, were contributed to and purchased by the Santa Fe College Endowment Corporation to establish a major academic center in Starke. This $2.5 million asset includes a turn-of-the-century facility that is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Renovation of the historic courthouse was the responsibility of the Endowment Corporation, which restored the interior to accommodate classrooms, laboratories, offices, a study room and student lounge. In addition to enhanced educational and cultural opportunities for all citizens of Bradford County, the Andrews Center is an integral part of downtown redevelopment and restoration. In the spring of 1991 the Andrews Center Cultural Building, a century-old structure in downtown Starke, was renovated by private donations to the Endowment Corporation. The $700,000 renovation project provides the college and the community with a performing arts auditorium/theater seating 155 people, a facility for the Eugene L. Matthews Historical Museum, and additional classroom and office space for a growing Andrews Center. In the fall of 2002 the Lillian Stump Education Center opened to provide the Andrews Center with an approximately 4,000 square foot new facility that includes four major college classrooms plus faculty and staff office space. The Stump Education Center, a $400,000 project of the Endowment Corporation, enhances the Andrews Center’s dual enrollment program with Bradford County High School and provides classroom space for college level courses, as well as community and continuing education classes.

Blount Center
In 1988 the City of Gainesville deeded the old train depot on NW 6th Street to the SFC Endowment Corporation for the purpose of establishing an educational center that would be accessible to those living in and around the downtown area. Renovation of the old train station was the responsibility of the Endowment Corporation. All funds for this project came from the private sector and involved the establishment of a major steering committee composed

Davis Center
In the fall of 2003 the Ron and Norita Davis and Family Davis Center opened to help people in the southwestern part of Alachua County and the surrounding Archer area to enroll in classes rather than having to journey 21 plus miles to the Northwest Gainesville campus. The center will promote advancement and enhancement of higher education and potential vocational training programs locally. The more than 10,000 square foot facility includes six general classrooms, a computer lab, ITV classroom, a community boardroom, faculty and staff offices, and a community/common meeting room. The Davis Center facility was made possible by a major contribution from Ron and Norita Davis, and the Davis family, who made a substantial contribution of in-kind and property totaling approximately $500,000 (20 plus acres of land) and a $600,000 cash gift for a total of $1.1 million. A community-wide leadership of individuals and organizations to provide additional funding for the establishment of the Davis Center was comprised of more than 26 community leaders.

Watson Center opened to promote the advancement of higher education for students in southeast Bradford County and the surrounding Keystone Heights-Lake Region area. The Watsons donated $3.4 million to make the facility possible. They also made a gift that resulted in the establishment of the $1.4 million permanently endowed Alfred B. Watson, Sr. and Agnes W. Watson Scholarship. The Watson Center’s first building included six general education classrooms, a computer lab, community boardroom, faculty and staff offices, community/common meeting area and an office for the Bradford County constitutional officers and sheriff.

Most courses are designed so they can be completed without having to attend classes on any campus at a fixed time or place. Some instructors may require attendance on campus for testing, but arrangements can be made for this at remote sites. Because Open Campus classes offer the convenience and flexibility of attending college from a personal computer via the Internet, students can continue their education while still managing a job, family activities or other class-

The advising mission is to help students attain their educational goals. The Advisement Center provides students with timely and accurate information regarding Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree graduation requirements. Advisors help A.A. students plan their program of study in preparation for transfer to a four-year university. All new students (first-time in college and transfer) must attend orientation (online or on campus) before they meet with an advisor. Current and returning students are required to access their degree audit through eSantafe or to see an advisor each semester for academic planning.

Associate of Arts Degree
If you intend to transfer to one of Florida’s state universities, the Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree is the transferable degree. The A.A. degree includes the general education portion (lower division) of the baccalaureate degree. In order to help us in advising you properly, please make sure you have indicated which university you wish to transfer to and what major you would like to study. It is extremely helpful to have your academic program fully planned no later than the beginning of the second term. If you have not chosen a major, it would be helpful for you to select an area of interest so that the Advisement Office can give you specific information about the university and major of your choice. Selecting a major does not commit you to that selection; you can change your major at any time by seeing an advisor in R-201 or by going to eSantafe and selecting “change major.” If you are undecided, please contact a career counselor in Building S, room 255 (Counseling Center).

Placement
Santa Fe College has a comprehensive assessment and placement program to help students succeed in college. Rule 6A-10.315, College Preparatory Testing, Placement and Instruction, states that first-time-in-college applicants for admission into degree programs shall be tested for reading, writing and mathematics proficiency prior to the completion of initial registration, using the Florida College Entry Level Placement Test (CPT). Students who present scores on the SAT or E-ACT that meet or exceed college level placement scores may be exempted from taking the Florida College Entry Level Placement Test. In compliance with this state law, SFC adheres to the following assessment procedures: 1. Degree seeking students may submit test scores from one of the state approved assessment tests (CPTs, SAT or ACT) for placement. If the scores on the ACT or SAT are no more than two (2) years old and the reading, English and/or math fall below college level, the student will take the CPTs in that area. If the SAT/ ACT score is college level or above, the student may

22

use that score for placement into college level courses. If the SAT/ACT math scores are college level and the student wishes to take a course higher than MAT1033, it is required that he or she take the College Level Math (CLM) portion of the CPTs for college math placement. 2. Students who submit scores on the SAT or E-ACT that do not meet or exceed college level placement scores in reading, writing and mathematics will take the complete College Entry Level Placement Test (Computerized Placement Tests-CPT). Official course placement will be based on the CPT test scores. The SAT and E-ACT or CPT scores must be no more than two years old. 3. Degree-seeking students who submit official scores on the SAT or E-ACT that meet or exceed college level placement scores in all areas are exempt from any additional entry assessment, provided that scores are no more than two years old. However, the College Level Math (CLM) portion of the CPT must be taken to ascertain proper college level math placement. 4. Students who are transferring from another college will follow steps 1, 2, or 3, when applicable, or present official documentation of passing grades in the highest level of college prep or college level reading, writing and/or mathematics courses. Official course placement will be based on test scores and/or transfer course work. Test scores from this testing procedure will be entered on the student’s record and will automatically generate appropriate flags. Students who achieve the designated score on the CPT Elementary Algebra Test will take the CLM for college level mathematics placement. Transfer students who have not completed their college level mathematics requirements must take the CLM. Note: Test scores that are more than two years old are not acceptable for entry course placement. The purpose of college entry assessment is to determine the appropriate courses for which students should enroll when they enter the college. Students who score below the state designated level for placement into college level courses are required to enroll in appropriate college preparatory courses. These courses earn institutional credit; however, they are not counted as required or elective credit for the Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degree. Students with college level reading and English placement scores will enroll in College Composition (ENC1101). College Composition is required of all first semester students pursuing an Associate of Arts degree or enrolling in general education courses. Associate of Science degree candidates may have a different freshman English requirement.

www.sfcc.edu The deadline for applying to the college, with all supporting documents for any given term, is the last day of late registration. For this and other official college dates, check the calendar online at www.sfcc.edu or contact the Welcome and Admissions Center or askSantaFe. This date is subject to change without notice. Please refer to the Admissions Web site at www.sfcc.edu for updated information regarding admissions deadlines. All students are strongly encouraged to apply early and complete all registration procedures before the first day of class.

Family and Student Educational Rights
In accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and Florida Statutes (Privacy Rights of Parents and Students), the college has identified as “directory information” a student’s name, local address, telephone number, date of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student. This information is available to the public. Other information about students can be released only when a written authorization, signed by the student, is presented to the college. Any student who does not want this directory information released must file a directory information exclusion request with the Office of Records (Building R, room 101). Upon written request from a student, the custodians of educational records will insure that all access rights specified by this act will be accorded within three business days after a request has been made. Each semester, the college prepares a listing containing the name, address, and telephone number of each student enrolled. Copies of that listing are occasionally made available to companies who wish to contact SFC students. Any student who wants his or her information excluded from the college directory must file the request before the first day of class for the full term. A directory exclusion request will remain in effect until rescinded in writing by the student. Names of students who have requested directory exclusion will not be printed in the commencement book for the graduation ceremony. The college has designated the following individuals, by virtue of their responsibilities, as custodians of educational records: Vice President for Student Affairs: Portia Taylor College Registrar: Lynn Sullivan If students wish to challenge the accuracy of their educational records, questions may be settled through informal hearings or upon the request of either party (the educational institution or the eligible student) through formal proceedings which will be conducted in compliance with this statute. These procedures are intended to apply only to challenges to the accuracy of institutional records containing the grade assigned. Thus, eligible students could seek to correct an improperly recorded grade, but could not, through the hearing requested pursuant to this law,

for courses at non-regionally accredited institutions under the state of Florida K-16 Articulation Agreement. In accordance with §1001.64(8)(a) F.S., Santa Fe College may consider the past actions of any person applying for admission or enrollment and may deny admission or enrollment to an applicant because of misconduct if determined to be in the best interest of the college. Santa Fe reserves the right to refuse admission or re-enrollment or to place conditions on admission or re-enrollment of applicants and students whom Santa Fe determines would be disruptive of the orderly process of the college’s programs, would interfere with the rights and privileges of other students or employees, and/or would represent a safety risk to Santa Fe students, employees or property. Applicants/ students have the right to appeal any decision to the Vice President for Student Affairs within 10 calendar days of the date the notice was received.

Transient Students
Students attending other postsecondary institutions who wish to take courses at Santa Fe College and transfer the credit back to their institutions may be admitted to Santa Fe as transient students. These students should apply for admission. They are also required to present a transient form or an official statement from their institution that they are in good standing and that the credits earned will be accepted as part of their degree program at the home institution. In order for a transient student to be exempt from prerequisites, the transient letter must list the courses the student is authorized to take as well as the term the student will be taking the courses.

Deadlines and Transcripts
SFC requires official transcripts from all entering students as a part of the application for admission. Transcripts should be on file with the Office of Records and Admissions prior to registration. This includes high school transcripts for entering freshmen and college transcripts for students transferring from other colleges or universities. Transfer students with less than 60 credit hours from previous institutions must also provide high school transcripts.

contest whether the teacher should have assigned a higher grade because the parents or student believe that the student was entitled to a higher grade. Parents or guardians desiring access to the records of a student who is their dependent should ask the student to grant permission in writing to the college. Without written permission from the student, the parents or guardians must certify in writing to the Office of Records that the student is economically dependent upon them as defined by Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, and must document this dependency by providing a copy of the previous year’s income tax return.

Residence Classification
For the purpose of assessing matriculation and tuition fees, a student shall be classified as a “resident” or “nonresident” based upon Florida Statute 1009.21. A complete copy of the state statute follows. Please contact the Office of Enrollment Services if you have questions about your initial residency classification or the Office of Records if you would like to petition to reclassify your residency status.

1009.21 Determination of resident status for tuition purposes
Students shall be classified as residents or non-residents for the purpose of assessing tuition fees in public community colleges and universities. (1) As defined under this section: • The term “dependent child” means any person, whether or not living with his parent, who is eligible to be claimed by his parent as a dependent under the Federal Income Tax Code. • The term “institution of higher education” means any of the constituent institutions under the jurisdiction of the State University System or the State Community College System. • A “legal resident” or “resident” is a person who maintained his residence in this state for the preceding year, has purchased a home which is occupied by him as his residence, or has established a domicile in this state pursuant to 222.17. • The term “parent” means the natural or adoptive parent or legal guardian of a dependent child. Example: A “resident for tuition purposes” is a person who qualifies as provided in subsection (2) for the in-state tuition rate; a “non-resident for tuition purposes” is a person who does not qualify for the in-state tuition rate. (2) To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes: • A person or, if that person is a dependent child, his parent or parents must have established legal residence in this state for at least 12 months immediately prior to his qualification. • Every applicant for admission to an institution of higher education shall be required to make a statement as to his length of residence in this state and, further, shall establish that his presence or, if he is a dependent child, the presence of his parent or parents in the state currently is, and during the requisite 12-month qualifying period was, for the

purpose of maintaining a bona fide domicile, rather than for the purpose of maintaining a mere temporary residence or abode incident to enrollment in an institution of higher education. • However, with respect to a dependent child living with an adult relative other than the child’s parent, such child may qualify as a resident for tuition purposes if the adult relative is a legal resident who has maintained legal residence in this state for at least 12 months immediately prior to the child’s qualification, provided the child has resided continuously with such relative for the 5 years immediately prior to the child’s qualification, during which time the adult relative has exercised day-to-day care, supervision, and control of the child. • The legal residence of a dependent child whose parents are divorced, separated, or otherwise living apart will be deemed to be this state if either parent is a legal resident of this state, regardless of which parent is entitled to claim, and does in fact claim, the minor as a dependent pursuant to federal individual income tax provisions. (3) An individual shall not be classified as a resident for tuition purposes and, thus, shall not be eligible to receive the in-state tuition rate until he has provided such evidence related to legal residence and its duration as may be required by officials of the institution of higher education from which he seeks the in-state tuition rate. (4) With respect to a dependent child, the legal residence of such individual’s parent or parents is prima facie evidence of the individual’s legal residence, which evidence may be reinforced or rebutted, relative to the age and general circumstances of the individual, by the other evidence of legal residence required of or presented by the individual. However, the legal residence of an individual whose parents are domiciled outside this state is not prima facie evidence of the individual’s legal residence if that individual has lived in this state for 5 consecutive years prior to enrolling or reregistering at the institution of higher education at which resident status for tuition purposes is sought. (5) In making a domiciliary determination related to the classification of a person as a resident or non-resident for tuition purposes, the domicile of a married person, irrespective of sex, shall be determined, as in the case of an unmarried person, by reference to all relevant evidence of domiciliary intent. For the purposes of this section: • A person shall not be precluded from establishing or maintaining legal residence in this state and subsequently qualifying or continuing to qualify as a resident for tuition purposes solely by reason of marriage to a person domiciled outside this state, even when that person’s spouse continues to be domiciled outside of this state, provided such person maintains his legal residence in this state. • A person shall not be deemed to have established or maintained legal residence in this state and subsequently to have qualified or continued to qualify as a resident for tuition purposes solely by reason of marriage to a person domiciled in this state. • In determining the domicile of a married person,

Admissions
25

www.sfcc.edu irrespective of sex, the fact of the marriage and the place of domicile of such person’s spouse shall be deemed relevant evidence to be considered in ascertaining domiciliary intent. (6) Any non-resident person, irrespective of sex, who marries a legal resident of this state or marries a person who later becomes a legal resident may, upon becoming a legal resident of this state, accede to the benefit of the spouse’s immediately precedent duration as a legal resident for purposes of satisfying the 12-month durational requirement of this section. (7) A person shall not lose his resident status for tuition purposes solely by reason of serving, or if such person is a dependent child, by reason of his parent or parents’ serving, in the armed forces outside this state. (8) A person who has been properly classified as a resident for tuition purposes but who, while enrolled in an institution of higher education in this state, loses his resident tuition status because he or, if he is a dependent child, his parent or parents establish domicile or legal residence elsewhere, shall continue to enjoy the in-state tuition rate for a statutory grace period, which period shall be measured from the date on which the circumstances arose that culminated in the loss of resident tuition status and shall continue for 12 months. However, if the 12-month grace period ends during a semester or academic term for which such former resident is enrolled, such grace period shall be extended to the end of that semester or academic term. (9) Any person who ceases to be enrolled at or who graduates from an institution of higher education while classified as a resident for tuition purposes and who subsequently abandons his domicile in this state shall be permitted to re-enroll at an institution of higher education in this state as a resident for tuition purposes without the necessity of meeting the 12-month durational requirement of this section if that person has re-established his domicile in this state within 12 months of such abandonment and continuously maintains the re-establishment domicile during the period of enrollment. The benefit of this subsection shall not be accorded more than once to any one person. (10) The following persons shall be classified as residents for tuition purposes: (a) Active duty members of the armed services of the United States residing or stationed in this state, their spouses, and dependent children, and active members of the Florida National Guard who qualify under s. 250.10(7) and (8) for the tuition assistance program. (b) Active duty members of the armed services of the United States and their spouses and dependents attending a public community college or state university within 50 miles of the military establishment where they are stationed, if such military establishment is within a county contiguous to Florida. (c) United States citizens living on the Isthmus of Panama, who have completed 12 consecutive months of college work at the Florida State University Panama Canal Branch, and their spouses and dependent children. (d) Full-time instructional and administrative personnel employed by state public schools, community colleges, and institutions of higher education, as defined in s. 1000.04, and their spouses and dependent children. (e) Students from Latin America and the Caribbean who receive scholarships from the federal or state government. Any student classified pursuant to this paragraph shall attend, on a full-time basis, a Florida institution of higher education. (f) Southern Regional Education Board’s Academic Common Market graduate students attending Florida’s state universities. (g) Full-time employees of state agencies or political subdivisions of the state when the student fees are paid by the state agency or political subdivision for the purpose of job-related law enforcement or corrections training. (h) McKnight Doctoral Fellows and Finalists who are United States citizens. (i) United States citizens living outside the United States who are teaching at a Department of Defense Dependent School or in an American International School and who enroll in a graduate level education program which leads to a Florida teaching certificate. (j) Active duty members of the Canadian military residing or stationed in this state under the North American Air Defense (NORAD) agreement, and their spouses and dependent children, attending a community college or state university within 50 miles of the military establishment where they are stationed. (k) Active duty members of a foreign nation’s military who are serving as liaison officers and are residing or stationed in this state, and their spouses and dependent children, attending a community college or state university within 50 miles of the military establishment where the foreign liaison officer is stationed. Petitions for reclassification of residency status and all necessary accompanying documentation must be submitted to the Office of Records before the first day of class for the term in which residency status is sought. Retroactive changes and refunds for prior terms will not be made.

Student Course Loads
A full-time student for fall, spring, and summer terms is one who enrolls in 12 or more semester hours or any combination of 12 or more hours in the full or mini sessions within the individual term. Credit hours for courses audited are counted toward a full load. Students may not register for more than 19 semester hours in any term at SFC except with special permission. Students seeking permission to enroll in more than 19 semester hours must see the associate vice president of Academic Affairs or a designee in room 253 of the Robertson Administration Building on the Northwest Campus.

Audit Fees
Any student in the college may elect to audit a college credit course at the time of registration. A student may not switch from credit to audit or from audit to credit after the drop/add period. No credit is granted when the course is completed, nor can any be given at a future date. Audit students pay the same tuition fees, application fees, laboratory fees and special fees as credit students.

Expense Estimates Approved by Financial Aid
• Computer, printer, software $1500 • Monthly supplies $11 • Monthly Internet service $17

Computer Access Policy
In the 21st century ongoing use of an Internet connected computer is a requirement for successful completion of college programs. Santa Fe College expects and requires that all students acquire access to the computer hardware and software necessary for their programs. The cost of meeting this requirement varies from student to student, but may include purchase or lease of a computer and/or printer, Internet access fees, software purchases, and cost of maintenance and supplies. Costs of meeting this requirement will be included in financial aid considerations. No student will be denied access to Santa Fe College because of an inability to purchase or lease a computer, and accordingly, the college offers access to computers through its computer labs and the library.

Financial Aid
Many students who need financial assistance are able to obtain help through scholarships, loans, grants and parttime work. Financial aid programs at SFC include Federal Pell Grant, Academic Competitiveness Grant, Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grant, Federal Work-Study, Federal Direct Student Loan, Santa Fe Scholarship, Florida Student Assistance Grant, Florida Bright Futures Scholarships, and Federal Plus Loan. These programs are financed by federal, state and institutional funds. Awards are made on an academic year basis and the amount of assistance is determined by individual need, student eligibility, and availability of funds. SFC’s Board of Trustees offers scholarships to outstanding students in the following areas: Athletics, the College Achievement Program, Academics (Honors and Need Based), Creative Arts, Public Service, Student Ambassador, Student Government, and Technology and Applied Sciences. In addition, there are privately funded scholarships offered to SFC students by Santa Fe’s Endowment Corporation. Inquiries should be directed to the Scholarship Office, Building R, room 132, in the student services complex or by calling (352) 395-5470. Students are encouraged to apply for financial aid by March 15 for the following academic year starting with the fall term. Detailed information concerning financial aid is available in the financial aid handbook. You may obtain this information by visiting the Financial Aid Web site at www.sfcc.edu or writing to the Financial Aid Office, 3000 NW 83rd Street, Building R, room 122, Gainesville, Florida, 32606, or by calling (352) 395-5480.

Official Withdrawal
A student may officially withdraw from one course or from the college prior to the late withdrawal deadline. For this and other official college dates, check the calendar online at www.sfcc.edu. The withdrawal procedure is initiated by the student in the Office of Records and may affect the student’s athletic eligibility, financial aid or veterans benefits, as well as benefits received from other federal agencies. Students are required to obtain signatures from various departments in order to withdraw, and it is the responsibility of the student to deliver a completed withdrawal form to the Office of Records, Building R, room 101. Students will not be permitted to routinely withdraw from college preparatory courses (ENC 0020; REA 0010; MAT 0002; MAT 0024). Special permission for withdrawal must be obtained from the College Prep advisor or chairperson.

The withdrawal procedure does not guarantee any refund of money, nor is it related in any way to the refund policy (see Refund and Adjustment of Fees). Any student seeking an exception to the withdrawal policy must request a late withdrawal through the Office of Records, Building R, room 101. Refunds past published deadlines are seldom given. Exceptions are by petition, and only documented extenuating circumstances are considered.

College Expenses

Refund and Adjustment of Fees
Students who wish to withdraw from the college or who seek refunds of fees paid may do so via eSantaFe or at the SFC Records Office, Building R, room 101.

Refund/Repayment Policy
As a result of the Higher Education Act of 1998, a student who completely withdraws may be required to repay a percentage of Title IV Federal Financial Aid funds received. College refund policy dictates that fees will be refunded in full for course work dropped during the drop/add period or canceled by the college. However, the federal refund/ repayment policy supersedes the college refund policy for students receiving financial aid and completely withdrawing from the college. For specific information about the refund/repayment policy, please visit the Financial Aid Web site at www.sfcc. edu or call a financial aid specialist at (352) 395-5480.

Student Financial Obligations
Students shall be held responsible for their financial obligations to Santa Fe College. Accordingly, a student who is delinquent in satisfying such obligations shall not be permitted to graduate, register, receive a transcript for completed course work or benefit from other regular college services. Student financial obligations include, but are not necessarily limited to: • fee deferments; • delinquent loan payments (e.g. Short Term, Perkins, Nursing); • unpaid matriculation, tuition, laboratory or other fees associated with registration; • unpaid fines or penalties duly assessed by appropriate college authorities; • checks drawn to the order of the college that have been returned because of insufficient funds or any other reason. Any student who has paid for course registration fees with a check that is dishonored for any reason must make immediate restitution to the college. After determination by the Office for Finance that timely restitution is unlikely, the student’s registration will be canceled. In no instance shall the student’s enrollment be continued beyond the point where the dishonored check has been rejected by the bank on resubmission.

Final Drop Day
Final drop day is the last day upon which a student may drop a course and be eligible for a full refund of fees paid for that course. Courses officially dropped will be removed from the student’s record. The final drop day will be scheduled so that every student will have an opportunity to drop a course on or after the first scheduled class meeting. For the deadline date for dropping courses each term, check the calendar online at www.sfcc.edu. If the college cancels a class at any time prior to its completion, the student’s enrollment in that class will be canceled and the student will be entitled to a 100 percent refund of fees paid for that class, less any indebtedness to the college. The college will notify the student and the college will initiate the refund process. Refunds will be processed after the fee refund deadline dates. For these and other official college dates, check the calendar online at www.sfcc.edu. While refund checks will be processed and distributed as soon as possible, a fair expectation for their receipt would be approximately two weeks after the deadline.

Student Fees
If you are not currently attending Santa Fe College you must submit one of the following to the Welcome Center, Building R, room 112: • An online application through eSantaFe if you have never applied to SFC OR • An online readmission application through your eSantaFe account if you have previously submitted a credit application

International Students Application Process
Santa Fe College (SFC) considers anyone who is not a United States (U.S.) citizen or permanent resident of the U.S. as international. If residing in the U.S. the student must also have legal status in the U.S. If the student does not have legal status the student is considered illegal and has to complete a special admission process with the Office of the Registrar. If the student is on an F-2 or B-1/B-2 visa, the student must change status before enrolling at SFC. International students are required to complete and submit an international student application, an official high school diploma (with official high school transcripts) and official transcripts from any postsecondary school(s), both in their native language and in an official English translation. All applicants whose native language or exclusive language of instruction is not English must submit a recent (two years or less) Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) examination score with a minimum score of 400 on the paper test, 32 on the Internet-based test, or 97 on the computer-based test. Please refer to the most recent International Student Admission Checklist. All necessary paperwork for admission must be received in the International Student Services office by the deadline for the term. The only exception is if a student is applying for the Adult Education Program (4100).

College financial aid is not available to non-immigrant students on F-1 visas whose parents/legal guardians do not reside in the U.S. Non-immigrant students may not be employed while attending college in the United States, unless the International Student Services office and the USCIS have granted permission. Normally, employment is not granted although, occasionally, on-campus employment is authorized. To maintain non-immigrant student status, students must enroll for a minimum of 12 credit hours every fall and spring term. If summer is their first term, they must enroll in 12 credits during that summer term. Failure to maintain enrollment will result in the loss of student status and possible deportation. Santa Fe has an International Student Services office to help international students make the transition from their home countries to Santa Fe College. The staff will gladly help students with immigration regulations, educational planning, personal problems, and other areas of concern.

Health Insurance for International Students on F-1 Visas

Such notes are exempt from the State of Florida documentary stamp requirements. Students receiving a tuition deferment shall be required to pay the amount due by the due date for EVERY class deferred. Students may petition for late withdrawal if they have stopped attending a class; however, the tuition for each deferred class must be paid first. gram participant must complete the course requirements within one semester, changing the incomplete to a letter grade.

Mitigating Circumstances
Mitigating circumstances are situations that directly hinder a program participant’s pursuit of a course and are judged to be beyond the student’s control. Students are encouraged to contact the college’s Veterans Affairs office to discuss mitigating circumstances and to file them with the USVA. The following are some general categories of mitigating circumstances (the list is not all-inclusive): 1. Serious illness of the program participant or in the program participant’s immediate family 2. Financial obligations, which require a change in terms, hours, or placement of employment precluding pursuit of a course 3. Discontinuance of a course by Santa Fe College 4. Active duty in military service, including active duty for training 5. Actions by the program participant such as seeking tutorial assistance, SFC Veterans Affairs counseling, and/or Santa Fe College academic counseling in an attempt to remedy the unsatisfactory work before withdrawal or completion

Standards of Progress
In compliance with the United States Department of Veterans Affairs regarding veterans and other eligible persons’ attendance, progress and certification, the following procedures are to be followed: I. Attendance The IHL program participant must notify the Santa Fe College Veterans Affairs office of any change in student status. Student withdrawal from a class will be reported to the USVA within 30 days of the withdrawal. The NCD program participant enrolled in a vocational certificate program who accumulates three (3) or more unexcused absences during any calendar month will be interrupted for USVA benefits. The USVA will be notified by the college’s VA office to suspend benefits due to lack of attendance. Three unexcused tardinesses will count as one absence. II. Academic Progress The program participant’s rate of progress toward his or her educational goal is as follows: The program participant may be certified to repeat a course in which an unsatisfactory grade has been received. USVA educational benefits will be terminated when the student’s GPA is below 2.0 for two consecutive terms. The college’s Veterans Affairs office is available to assist program participants in reinstatement of educational benefits following successful completion of one semester attaining above a 2.0 GPA. Program participants are encouraged to seek academic advisement, attend tutorial labs or seek assistance from the college’s Veterans Affairs office to avoid academic suspension of USVA educational benefits.

General Information
The Montgomery GI Bill and other eligible programs conducted by the United States Department of Veterans Affairs offer many first generation college students a way to pay for their college education. Generally, students should not expect to receive educational payments for up to 90 days when applying for benefits for the first time, although payment is made as of the first day of class. All program-eligible students are encouraged to apply for student financial aid and all eligible military veterans are encouraged to apply for the financial aid to enhance their GI Bill-earned educational benefits. All program-eligible participants have tutorial assistance and work study available, provided by the USVA, and are encouraged to learn more about these programs by contacting the college’s Veterans Affairs office at (352) 395-5505. Students are also encouraged to notify the college’s VA office when there are any problems with educational benefits. Program participants are encouraged to monitor their educational benefits by contacting the Atlanta Regional office of the United States Department of Veterans Affairs at (888) 442-4551, (888) GI BILL1 or go online to use the WAVE verificaiton program each month. Student veterans should also review annual changes to the GI BILL educational programs at VA.GOV.

Reporting of Academic Progress
The USVA prohibits payment of educational benefits for auditing a course or for a course not used toward graduation requirements, including any course from which the student withdraws, unless there is a finding of mitigating circumstances causing the withdrawal. All W grades are considered to be punitive and will be reported as required to the USVA. The USVA may adjust the amount paid to the program participant when W grades change the student status to less time attended, such as from full time to three-quarter time. The payment of adjustments is retroactive to the first day of the term in which they are recorded, unless mitigating circumstances are submitted and accepted by the USVA. All incomplete (I) grades must be completed in accordance with the department chairs. A student may not register for a course to make up an incomplete grade. The pro-

Academic Objectives and Attendance
Santa Fe College is responsible for providing its students with a learning-centered environment that includes educationally sound, high-quality programs offered in an economical and efficient format. The continuation of students who lack the ability, preparation or maturity to succeed is inconsistent with the college’s mission and its responsibility as a tax-supported institution. A student’s standing at Santa Fe College will be determined by the relationship of hours attempted to grade points earned. To be considered in good standing and continue successfully toward a degree, a student must earn the grade points necessary to maintain a 2.0 (C) cumulative grade point average while at Santa Fe.

Example 3 New student in first term:
Grade F F D D Grade Attempted Points Hours 0 multiplied by 4 = 0 “ “ 3 = 1 “ “ 3 = 1 “ “ 3 = 13 = Total Grade Points 0 0 3 3 6

Grade Point Deficit
A grade point deficit is the difference between the grade points needed for a C average and the grade points earned on hours attempted. The following example demonstrates this concept. It should be noted that a student could go from a position of good standing to academic warning, probation or suspension within one term.

In this example, the student earned six grade points on 13 semester hours. Thus, 13 times 2 = 26 grade points are needed for a C average. Since only six grade points were earned, this student would have a 20 point grade point deficit and, therefore, would be suspended after just one term.

Academic Warning, Probation and Suspension
To complete degree and certificate program requirements, students must meet SFC’s Standards of Academic Progress: • Students with less than a 2.0 GPA shall be placed on academic warning if they have a grade point deficit of 9 or less. • Students with less than a 2.0 GPA shall be placed on academic probation if they have a grade point deficit of 10 or more but less than 20. • Students with a grade point deficit of 20 or more shall be suspended for one semester (15 weeks). • See the description of the Standards of Academic Progress (SLS1531) course online in the classes section at Student Development Instruction. This course is intended to help suspended students return to college successfully. Students readmitted after their suspension term or those who receive suspension overides should enroll in this course.

Example 1 New student in first term:
Grade A B C D Grade Attempted Points Hours 4 multiplied by 3 = 3 “ “ 3 = 2 “ “ 3 = 1 “ “ 3 = 12 = Total Grade Points 12 9 6 3 30

To remain in good standing, a C average, which is equal to two grade points per credit hour, must be maintained. The total credits attempted multiplied by two will establish the minimum number of grade points needed. From the grade record listed above on 12 credit hours, 12 times two (for a C average) = 24 grade points. Since 30 grade points were earned, this student is in good standing.

Academic Dismissal
Students returning from suspension will be on probation. If, at the end of the term they return, their grade point deficit is still 20 or more, they will be dismissed from the college. Such a student is not eligible to be readmitted to the college for a minimum of one full calendar year. The student may then petition the college for possible readmission. Favorable action is dependent upon clear written evidence of factors that indicate promise of successful performance. Students returning after suspension or dismissal, who earn a semester GPA of 2.5 or above, will not be suspended even though they may have an overall deficit of more than 20 grade points. Should this promising level of performance continue, good academic standing will result. Under these circumstances, the student will continue on academic probation.

Example 2 Same student as example 1, but in second term:
Grade C D F F Grade Attempted Points Hours 2 multiplied by 4 = 1 “ “ 3 = 0 “ “ 4 = 0 “ “ 4 = 15 = Total Grade Points 8 3 0 0 11

40

This student earned 11 grade points in the second term. Added to the 30 grade points from the first term, the student has earned 41 grade points. For the 27 credit hours attempted (12 + 15 = 27), the student would need 54 grade points (27 times 2) to maintain a C average. Therefore, this student has a 13 grade point deficit (54 -41 = 13) and will be placed on academic probation.

Earning Credit While Suspended
A student while under suspension from another institution may not earn credit at Santa Fe College, and a student while under suspension from Santa Fe may not earn credits toward a degree from this institution by taking courses at

another institution. In each case, it is the student’s responsibility to work with the Registrar’s Office of each college or university to determine the policies governing credit earned while under suspension.

Academic Affairs

Standards of Academic Progress Summary
Academic Warning Academic Probation Academic Suspension 1-9 grade point deficit 10-19 grade point deficit 20 or more grade point deficit

Returning after Suspension/Dismissal
A student returning after suspension or dismissal will be on probation. If, at the end of the term he or she returns, the grade point deficit is still 20 or more, the student will be dismissed from the college. Such a student is not eligible to be readmitted to the college for a minimum of one full calendar year. After that time has passed, the student may petition the college for possible readmission. Favorable action is dependent upon clear written evidence of factors that indicate promise of successful performance. Exception to above rule: A student who earns a semester GPA of 2.5 or higher in the first semester after returning from suspension or dismissal will not be suspended, even if that student’s overall deficit is more than 20 grade points. Should the student continue to earn a GPA of 2.5 or higher each term, the student will remain enrolled on academic probation until good academic standing is achieved.

of extreme hardship. A petition for waiver of the full fees must be requested before the end of drop/add for the term or session in which the course is attempted for the third time. No waivers are granted retroactively.

Transferring to Santa Fe with Deficit Grade Points
All transfer students will be evaluated by Santa Fe’s Standards of Progress using the same criteria applied to nontransfer students. Transfer students entering with deficit grade points will be assigned to the appropriate category, that is, academic warning or probation. They will return to good standing when sufficient grade points have been earned to achieve a C average.

Transient Status
Santa Fe students wishing to attend another postsecondary institution and transfer credits back to Santa Fe College must obtain permission from SFC before enrolling at the other institution. Students should fill out a transient form, seek advisement about courses they wish to take, and have their status at SFC certified in the Office of Records before enrolling at another institution. Transient forms are available online at www.facts.org.

Withdrawals
Students who wish to withdraw from a course and receive a W may do so via eSantaFe (Web) or in the Office of Records (Building R, room 101) up until the official withdrawal date each term/session. The withdrawal date for each term/session is available in the online calendar and via eSantaFe. A student may have only three attempts per course including original grade, repeat grades and withdrawals. An attempt is defined as an enrollment in a course where any grade is assigned or the student withdraws and receives a W. Courses that are dropped prior to the drop with a refund date will not be counted as an attempt. The student will be permitted a maximum of two withdrawals per course. Upon the third attempt, the student will not be permitted to withdraw and will receive a grade for that course. Florida Administrative Code (6A-14.0301) requires that on a third attempt, a student must pay the full cost of instruction, which is equal to the non-Florida resident cost of tuition. Occasionally, a petition for fee reduction may be granted by the college registrar for documented cases

Student Learning Outcomes Statements
Santa Fe College is committed to improved student learning and development with students becoming participants in a dynamic learning experience. Santa Fe’s student learning outcomes statements identify actionable priorities in terms of eight (8) broad learning outcomes associated with observable skill changes in communication, community, digital technology, information management, interpersonal, mathematical, personal, thinking and problem solving. A student’s growth in these cognitive, affective, and ethical capacities is assessed through measuring student learning and achievement based on the following student learning outcomes statements: • Communication: The student will develop effective reading, writing, speaking, listening, and nonverbal communication skills. • Community: The student will develop an understanding of diversity/pluralism in the world community, an awareness of civic and social participation, and ethical, informed decision-making. • Digital Technology: The student will develop computer and Internet skills, and the ability to retrieve, manage, and evaluate digital information. • Information Management: The student will develop the skills necessary to collect, verify, document, and

Degree-seeking students whose college entry placement scores are below the state and institutional college level placement scores shall enroll in the appropriate college preparatory courses prior to enrolling in college level courses. The college preparatory courses are: ENC0001 College Prep Writing 1 ENC0020 College Prep Writing 2 REA0001 College Prep Reading 1 REA0002 College Prep Reading 2 MAT0002 Prep Pre-Algebra MAT0020 Integrated Arithmetic & Algebra MAT0024 Elementary Algebra Students who fail to earn a grade of C or better are required to re-register for the failed course the following semester. Students who complete REA0002 are required to register for REA2205 the following semester. Students are strongly recommended to enroll in College Composition (ENC1101) immediately after they complete college preparatory reading and writing courses. Additionally, students are recommended to enroll in MAT1033 after they complete MAT0024 or MAT0020.

Ombudsman
Students having questions about obtaining access to a course or courses which, if not taken, could impede their progress toward a degree, should contact Assistant Vice President for Student Affairs John Cowart, the college’s ombudsman. The ombudsman works to provide an alternate communication channel that fosters continual dialogue in resolving academic and personal issues to bring about positive, productive changes within the classroom. The ombudsman’s office is located in Building R, room 211.

Rule 6A-10.0315(14)
Florida Administrative Code states that students enrolled in college preparatory courses may be permitted to take courses concurrently in other curriculum areas for which they are qualified. Students who test into college prep instruction must successfully complete the required college preparatory studies by the time they have accumulated 12 hours of college credit course work or they must maintain continuous enrollment in college preparatory course work each semester until the requirements are completed while performing satisfactorily in the degree earning course work. College preparatory students may not enroll in college credit courses that require skills that are beyond the skill level of the student. Restricted college level courses are flagged in the course schedule. Since students must maintain continuous enrollment in required college preparatory course work to maintain eligibility for enrollment in college level courses, students may not drop a college preparatory course and remain registered in a college level course. The College Prep advisors located in G-041 are available to advise all college prep and ESL (EAP) students. Students shall not enroll for more than three attempts in each college preparatory course. Withdrawal from a college preparatory course after the last day to drop and receive a refund counts as an attempt. Since the state will fund only two college preparatory attempts, students

Academic Foundations Department
In support of academic achievement, Santa Fe provides learning labs that offer individualized academic support in mathematics, reading and writing. This service is offered to students at all levels. Students may be referred to the labs by instructors or may seek additional help independently. Lab instruction is offered on a one-to-one basis or in small group sessions and is free of charge to SFC students. The ESL (EAP) program provides instruction in the spoken and written language for non-native English students. Students participate in small-group instruction and individual practice to develop the English language skills needed to succeed in academic and vocational classes. Listening, speaking, reading, writing and cultural adaptation are emphasized. The learning labs provide pre-CLAST testing and review of all CLAST skills for students preparing to take CLAST for the first time and those remediating after failure of any subtest. Students are required to complete remediation in the CLAST Lab prior to retesting. A fee is charged for CLAST retakes.

will pay the full tuition cost for the third attempt, which is equivalent to out-of-state tuition. Exemptions may be granted for extenuating circumstances. Petitions may be submitted at the College Prep Office, G-021. Grades earned in college prep courses will not count toward graduation. These grades will be included in the students’ GPAs and will be included in the calculation of deficit points for the purpose of academic progress.

English as a Second Language (ESL) English for Academic Purposes (EAP)
Non-native speakers of English who place into college preparatory reading and English are required to register for the ESL (EAP) college preparatory courses. The courses in this program integrate reading, writing, listening and speaking activities to prepare non-native speakers of English for college level work. The ESL (EAP) program consists of the following courses: EAP0200C ESL Communications for College 1 EAP0220C ESL Basic Reading EAP0240C ESL Basic Writing EAP0300C ESL Communications for College 2 EAP0320C ESL Intermediate Reading EAP0340C ESL Intermediate Writing EAP0400C Communications for College 3 EAP0420C College Preparatory ESL Reading EAP0440C College Preparatory ESL Writing Grades earned in ESL (EAP) courses will not count toward graduation. These grades will be included in the students’ GPAs and will be included in the calculation of deficit points for the purpose of academic progress. Students enrolled in college preparatory ESL (EAP) courses follow the same registration procedures as all college preparatory students. Students shall not enroll for more than three attempts in any Prep ESL (EAP) course. Withdrawal from one of these courses after the last day to withdraw and receive a refund counts as an attempt.

20-35 hours per week will receive three semester hours of credit. A total of up to nine hours per year may be earned. Supervisors at the students’ work sites evaluate students’ performance during their cooperative education experience. The cooperative education coordinator utilizes experiential-type reports and other assignments submitted by the student at the end of each term, combined with the performance evaluation submitted by the site supervisor, to determine an appropriate grade. Cooperative education course hours designated as occupational (O) are not transferable nor will those hours count toward graduation requirements for the A.A. degree or impact the student’s GPA.

Academic Affairs

Degrees
Santa Fe College grants three degrees: Associate of Arts (A.A.), Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.), and Associate of Science (A.S.).

Associate of Arts Degree
The Associate of Arts degree is awarded to those students who successfully complete a program of study that is primarily designed to prepare them for transfer to a senior institution. Students wishing to transfer should obtain additional academic advisement from the upper division school to which they expect to apply.

The requirements of the Associate of Arts degree are:
1. Complete the basic 36-hour requirement of the general education program (see Division of Arts and Sciences). 2. Complete at least 60 semester hours of credit in a prescribed course of study with a minimum 2.0 grade point average (transfer students to SFC must have a 2.0 GPA on all A.A. course work attempted at SFC as well as a cumulative 2.0 GPA on all A.A. college course work attempted). 3. Complete the last 15 semester hours of course work at Santa Fe College. 4. Complete the CLAST. 5. File an application for graduation with the Office of Records. 6. Pay all fees and discharge all other financial obligations to the college.

Cooperative Education
Courses offered by this program allow students to apply knowledge obtained in the classroom in a variety of actual work settings. Students are able to gain valuable work experience and skills not obtainable in the classroom. Registration for cooperative education classes is by Cooperative Education Department permission only (Building S, room 254). Each cooperative education placement involves the student in the work site search, which often resembles a competitive job search. The work site may provide experience to the student as a paid job or as volunteer work experience, depending upon the employer’s current staffing needs and financial resources. Once a site is established, the student will work a minimum of 10-20 hours per week and will receive financial compensation (if a paid site has been developed) and one to three semester hours of credit for each co-op work assignment. The student working 10-14 hours per week will receive one semester hour of credit. The student working 15-19 hours per week will receive two semester hours of credit. The student working

Associate of Applied Science Degree
The Associate of Applied Science degree is awarded to students who successfully complete one of the Business, Health Sciences, Construction and Technical, Public Safety, or Information Technology Education programs. These areas of study are primarily designed to prepare students for immediate employment.

The requirements for the Associate of Applied Science degree are:
1. Complete an approved program of study of at least 60 semester hours in accordance with Florida standard credit hour length. 2. Complete a minimum of 15 semester hours from the following general education areas of study to include at least 3 semester hours from each area:

43

www.sfcc.edu Hours Communications/Humanities 3 Humanities/Fine Arts 3 Mathematics/Science 3 Social/Behavioral Sciences 3 Complete the last 15 semester hours at Santa Fe College. Complete a prescribed course of study with a 2.0 grade point average. File an application for graduation with the Office of Records. Pay all fees and discharge all other financial obligations to the college.

Catalog Year
Catalog year determines the set of academic requirements that must be fulfilled for graduation. Students graduate under the catalog in effect at the time of their initial enrollment at Santa Fe provided they maintain continuous enrollment (registration for and completion of at least one course for one full term in an academic year). Students who do not maintain continuous enrollment will be assigned the catalog in effect at the time they readmit or resume enrollment. Students may choose to graduate under the requirements of a later catalog, but they must fulfill all graduation requirements from that alternative catalog year. A.A. degree students should consult with an academic advisor. The college will make every reasonable effort to honor the curriculum requirements appropriate to each student’s catalog year. However, courses and programs will sometimes be discontinued and requirements may change as a result of curricular review or actions by accrediting associations and other agencies.

3. 4. 5. 6.

Associate of Science Degree
The Associate of Science degree is awarded to students who complete programs of instruction consisting of college level courses to prepare for entry into employment and including 15-18 hours of general education courses transferable to the State University System. Some senior institutions have established programs to build on the Associate of Science degree. Students wishing to transfer to such programs should check with the upper division school to which they expect to apply.

Experiential Learning
Santa Fe College recognizes and awards credit by experience in some vocational/technical areas. Matriculated students are required to send requests for experiential learning credit to the appropriate academic program areas following completion of the Previous Experience/Training Credit form. The academic departments request the appropriate documentation from the registrar to determine that another institution has not already credited the student for experiential learning. Criteria for granting the experiential credit are determined within each department. Experiential credits based on work experience require a letter from the student’s employer documenting time in position, job title, duties, and employer contact information. Experiential credit is usually granted only for internships. Credit granted through this process is indicated on the student transcript. The college keeps experiential learning forms on file in order to respond to requests from other institutions.

The requirements for the Associate of Science degree are:
1. Complete an approved program, as specified, of at least 60 semester hours. Program length will depend upon the established standard credit hour length as approved by the Articulation Coordinating Council. 2. Complete a minimum of 15 semester hours from the following general education areas of study to include at least three semester hours from each area: Hours Communications/Humanities 3 Humanities/Fine Arts 3 Mathematics/Science 3 Social/Behavioral Sciences 3 The remaining six hours may be taken from the three general education areas of study that best suit the individual needs of the selected Technology and Applied Sciences program. 3. Complete the last 15 semester hours at Santa Fe College. 4. Complete a prescribed course of study with a 2.0 grade point average. 5. File an application for graduation with the Office of Records. 6. Pay all fees and discharge all other financial obligations to the college.

Florida’s Statewide Course Numbering System (SCNS)
Courses in this catalog are identified by prefixes and numbers that were assigned by Florida’s Statewide Course Numbering System. This numbering system is used by all public postsecondary institutions in Florida and 33 participating non-public institutions. The major purpose of this system is to facilitate the transfer of courses between participating institutions. Each participating institution controls the title, credit, and content of its own courses and recommends the first digit of the course number to indicate the level at which students normally take the course. Course prefixes and the last three digits of the course numbers are assigned by members of faculty discipline committees appointed for that purpose by the Florida Department of Education in Tallahassee. Individuals nominated to serve on these committees are selected to maintain a representative balance as to type of institution and discipline field or specialization.

Graduation
Students who wish to graduate in a given semester are expected to apply for graduation at the Office of Records before the semester deadline. Graduation deadlines are noted in the SFC calendar in this catalog. Graduating students are invited to attend the graduation ceremonies, which are held in May and December. Students who will be graduating in the summer semester may attend either the spring or fall graduation, but names of summer graduates are printed only in the December commencement program.

44

The course prefix and each digit in the course number have a meaning in the Statewide Course Numbering System. The list of course prefixes and numbers, along with their generic titles, is referred to as the SCNS taxonomy. Descriptions of the content of courses are referred to as course equivalency profiles.

to identify the department in which a course is offered. Rather, the content of a course determines the assigned prefix to identify the course.

Academic Affairs

Example of course identifier:

Entrylevel Survey Course Social Problems in this course

Lab Code

No lab component

General Rule for Course Equivalencies
Equivalent courses at different institutions are identified by the same prefixes and same last three digits of the course number and are guaranteed to be transferable between participating institutions that offer the course, with a few exceptions. (Exceptions are listed below.) For example, a survey course in social problems is offered by 35 different postsecondary institutions. Each institution uses SYG_010 to identify its social problems course. The level code is the first digit and represents the year in which students normally take the course at a specific institution. In the SCNS taxonomy, SYG means Sociology, General; the century digit 0 represents Entry-level General Sociology; the decade digit 1 represents Survey Course; and the unit digit 0 represents Social Problems. In science and other areas, the letter C or L after the course number is known as a lab indicator. The C represents a combined lecture and laboratory course that meets in the same place at the same time. The L represents a laboratory course or the laboratory part of a course having the same prefix and course number, without a lab indicator, which meets at a different time or place. Transfer of any successfully completed course from one institution to another is guaranteed in cases where the course to be transferred is equivalent to one offered by the receiving institution. Equivalencies are established by the same prefix and last three digits and comparable faculty credentials at both institutions. For example, SYG1010 is offered at a community college. The same course is offered at a state university as SYG2010. A student who has successfully complete SYG1010 at the community college is guaranteed to receive transfer credit for SYG2010 at the state university if the student transfers. The student cannot be required to take SYG2010 again since SYG1010 is equivalent to SYG2010. Transfer credit must be awarded for successfully completed equivalent courses and used by the receiving institution to determine satisfaction of requirements by transfer students on the same basis as credit awarded to the native students. It is the prerogative of the receiving institution, however, to offer transfer credit for courses successfully completed that have not been designated as equivalent.

Section 1007.24(7), Florida Statutes, states: Any student who transfers among postsecondary institutions that are fully accredited by a regional or national accrediting agency recognized by the United States Department of Education and that participate in the statewide course numbering system shall be awarded credit by the receiving institution for courses satisfactorily completed by the student at the previous institutions. Credit shall be awarded if the courses are judged by the appropriate statewide course numbering system faculty committees representing school districts, public postsecondary educational institutions, and participating nonpublic postsecondary educational institutions to be academically equivalent to courses offered at the receiving institution, including equivalency of faculty credentials, regardless of the public or nonpublic control of the previous institution. The Department of Education shall ensure that credits to be accepted by a receiving institution are generated in courses for which the faculty possess credentials that are comparable to those required by the accrediting association of the receiving institution. The award of credit may be limited to courses that are entered in the statewide course numbering system. Credits awarded pursuant to this subsection shall satisfy institutional requirements on the same basis as credits awarded to native students.

Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency
The following courses are exceptions to the general rule for course equivalencies and may not transfer. Transferability is at the discretion of the receiving institution. A. Courses not offered by the receiving institution B. Courses with the last three digits ranging from 900-999 (e.g., ART 2905) C. College preparatory and vocational preparatory courses D. Internships, practica, clinical experiences, and study abroad courses with numbers other than those ranging from 900-999 E. Applied performance or studio courses in Art, Dance, Interior Design, Music and Theatre F. Skills courses in Criminal Justice G. Graduate courses H. For courses at non-regionally accredited institutions, courses offered prior to the established transfer date of the course Questions about the Statewide Course Numbering System and appeals regarding course credit transfer decisions should be directed to Martha Morton in the Office of Curriculum and Scheduling, Robertson Administration Building, room 15, or the Florida Department of Education, Office of Articulation, 1401 Turlington Building, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0400.

Fee Waivers Sixty Plus Fee Waivers
Santa Fe College will waive registration fees (not lab, materials or access fees) for residents of Alachua and Bradford counties who are sixty years of age or older for all credit courses they enroll in at the college on a space available basis. “Space available” is defined as the last day of drop/ add for the term/session. Waivers will not be processed in cases where the initial registration for the course was prior to that date. No waivers are available for any continuing education courses offered through the Center for Business. For Community Education, registration waivers are available after the pre-registration period ends, and if a class has space available and has covered 125 percent of its operating costs. Some Community Education classes do not offer Sixty Plus waivers. Verification of age and address by driver’s license, birth certificate or voter’s registration card must be provided when applying for the waiver.

Military Science Air Force ROTC
The Air Force Reserve Officer’s Training Corps (ROTC) was established to select and prepare students to serve as officers in the United States Air Force. The Air Force ROTC program is divided into two phases: the first two years constitute the General Military Course and the last two the Professional Officer Course. Full-time Santa Fe College students are eligible to enroll in the General Military Course taught at the University of Florida. Transferring at a later date to one of the more than 140 colleges and universities offering Air Force ROTC can lead, upon completion of that course, to a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Air Force. The General Military Course examines the role of U.S. military forces in the contemporary world with particular attention to the United States Air Force, its organization and mission. The functions of strategic offensive and defensive forces, general purpose and aerospace support forces are covered. The development of air power over the last 200 years is examined by tracing the various concepts of employment of air power and by focusing on factors which prompted research and technological change. A variety of events and elements in the history of air power are stressed, especially where these provide significant examples of the impact of air power on strategic thought. To learn more or to enroll in the General Military Course, contact the Air Force ROTC Detachment at the UF, (352) 392-1355.

College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)
The College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) is a part of the Florida system of educational accountability. The CLAST measures students’ achievement of college level communication and mathematics skills. It consists of four subtests: essay, English language skills, reading, and mathematics. SFC students need to take the CLAST when they earn 18 A.A. degree hours, including grades of C or better in ENC1101, ENC1102 and a college level mathematics course at MAC1105 or higher. Students are required to pass all four subtests or earn exemptions in accordance with the Rule 6A-10.0311, FAC, to earn an Associate of Arts degree and to be admitted to most upper division programs in the Florida State University System. Students who fail any subtest are required to remediate skills in the appropriate academic support labs prior to retaking the CLAST. A fee is charged for CLAST retakes. State financial aid students who fail to take the CLAST by the time they have earned 60 hours jeopardize their financial aid status. For more CLAST information, contact the CLAST office in G-25 or call 395-5791.

Credit by Examination
Section 240.4015, Florida Statutes, requires the Articulation Coordinating Committee (ACC) to establish passing scores and course and credit equivalents for Advanced Placement (AP), International Baccalaureate (IB), and College Level Examination Program (CLEP) exams. Public community colleges and universities in Florida are required to award credit for AP, IB, CLEP, DANTES, AICE, and Excelsior College exams as designated. Credit awarded by exam may not duplicate other credit. Institutions may not award credit for scores below those listed by the ACC. SFC students may satisfy up to 45 semester hours of course credit through one or more of the mechanisms listed below; however, a maximum of 30 hours may be awarded for the IB diploma. Score minimums, credit hours awarded, and course equivalencies awarded are subject to change for any examination without prior notice. • Advanced Placement (AP) • International Baccalaureate (IB) Program • College Level Examination Program (CLEP) • Defense Activity of Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES) • Advanced International Certificate of Education (AICE) • Excelsior College Examinations • Department Credit by Examination

Defense Activity of Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)
The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSSTs), unlike Advanced Placement, are not built around curriculum. Rather, they are designed to test students’ knowledge of a variety of college level subjects, regardless of where they may have learned the material. Transfer of credit is based on the Articulation Coordinating Committee’s recommended minimum scores and maximum amount of credit guaranteed to transfer with no letter grades or grade points assigned. Contact the Office of Records (Building R, room 101) for further information.

course loads, but will be averaged into student grade point averages. Credit by examination will not be available during the period between official college terms or on official college holidays.

Procedure for SFC Department Credit by Examination
1. Students complete a Credit by Examination application available in the offices of academic chairpersons and directors. 2. Completed applications are presented to department or discipline chair or director. If the application is approved, the chair or director will explain how the examination will be administered according to current procedures. Depending on the discipline or program area, either individual examination dates for each student or a common examination date for all students will be set each term. 3. Requests are presented to the appropriate chair or director for approval (signature). 4. Approved forms are taken to the cashier’s window in the Robertson Administration Building for payment of the $15 examination fee. 5. The application is returned by students to the discipline/program area examiner indicated in step 2 above. 6. Upon completion of the examination, the examiner will forward the results (application) to the appropriate office and will also telephone that office to verify the test grade. The completed examination will be placed in the division’s Credit by Examination file for the discipline or program area. 7. Students must then return to the office where the application was made, pick up a copy of the signed form and take it to the Office of Records (Building R, room 101) for final recording. Students must allow one week after completion of the examination before picking up the copy from the appropriate office. 8. Credit by Examination may be attempted a second time after the lapse of one full academic term beyond the term in which the first attempt was made. Students may not attempt Credit by Examination more than twice in the same course.

Advanced International Certificate of Education Program (AICE)
The AICE program is an international, advanced secondary curriculum and assessment program equivalent to the British system of “A-Levels.” Transfer of credit is based on the Articulation Coordinating Committee’s recommended minimum scores and maximum amount of credit guaranteed to transfer with no letter grades or grade points assigned. Contact the Office of Records (Building R, room 101) for further information.

Excelsior College Examinations
Excelsior College Examinations (formerly known as the Regents College Examinations or the Proficiency Examination Program) are developed by Excelsior College using national committees of faculty consultants and national studies to assess how well the tests measure the performance of students in actual college courses. Excelsior College Examinations are approved by the American Council on Education, and Excelsior College itself is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools. Transfer of credit is based on the Articulation Coordinating Committee’s recommended minimum scores and maximum amount of credit guaranteed to transfer with no letter grades or grade points assigned. Contact the Office of Records (Building R, room 101) for further information.

Department Credit by Examination
Students wishing to earn course credit by passing a departmental examination should consult the department in which the course is taught. Students may not apply for course credit through an SFC Credit Examination if a CLEP examination is available. Students should be aware that SFC Credit Examinations may not be offered for certain courses due to the nature of a particular course’s content. Students may not take an examination for credit in a course if they have attempted the course at SFC (receiving either an A, B, C, D, F, I or W for work attempted) or if they have earned credit for an advanced course in that area. Decisions about the relevancy of particular advanced courses will be made by instructors giving the examination. Credit by examination will not be counted in student

Tech Prep Acceleration Credit
Tech Prep credit is a mechanism of accelerated college credit that may be employed during the high school years. Students who have earned sufficiently high grades in Tech Prep classes while in high school and who have passed an exam formulated and administered by Santa Fe College may receive college credit upon request after registering at SFC. Santa Fe College will not accept Tech Prep credit that is earned at a high school with whom the college has no prior articulation agreement.

Programs of Study

Associate of Arts (A.A.) Degree
The college offers the Associate of Arts degree to students wishing to transfer to a four-year college upon graduation from Santa Fe College. In keeping with the articulation agreement between state universities and public community colleges in Florida, each institution granting the Associate of Arts degree sets its own general education requirements and stipulates the additional elective hours required for the degree. By law, the articulation agreement provides that every Associate of Arts graduate of a Florida community college be granted admission to the upper division of a state university except to a limited access or teacher certification program or a major program requiring an audition. Students earning the Associate of Arts degree and transferring to one of Florida’s public universities will not be required by the university to take additional general education courses. Although the Associate of Arts degree does not require the choice of a major or area of concentration, students are advised early in their academic careers to be aware of the upper division requirements in specific fields of study. As a result, they may be able to choose courses within the required general education core that meet the prerequisites for their chosen field of study. In addition, the Associate of Arts degree requires 24 hours of electives, which should be carefully chosen to meet the future needs of each student upon transfer to upper division. Although the college will make every attempt to advise students concerning upper division requirements for the various majors, students are urged to become familiar with the requirements of the upper division universities to which they plan to transfer. Students must select a program major by the time they complete 24 college credit hours. With the help of their advisors, students should choose electives that will be most advantageous in the pursuit of their intended bachelor’s degrees. Each upper division university annually publishes counseling manuals for every major offered at that institution. Each state university has a designated articulation officer to facilitate the transfer of community college graduates to the State University System.

General Education
General education is the core preparation for lifelong learning. It fosters a disciplined curiosity that leads to exploring the foundations and ranges of knowledge in the arts and sciences. The general education program at Santa Fe College develops the student’s professional, intellectual and social skills, thereby facilitating understanding of, and involvement in, cultural, political and natural environments. General education provides critical competencies students need in today’s society, to succeed in the workplace, and to transfer education. Specifically, the student will • experience the perspectives of various disciplines that comprise the arts and sciences and understand their inter-connection; • gain the necessary foundation and depth and breadth of knowledge to become an independent, creative, lifelong learner; • develop effective writing, speaking, reading, listening and interpersonal skills; • learn how to acquire, organize, evaluate, verify, present, interpret and use information from various programs of study; • sharpen problem-solving skills through deductive and inductive reasoning, analysis, synthesis, and collaboration; • develop the skills necessary to evaluate social, political, cultural and scientific bodies of knowledge, their historical development and their continuing influence; • gain an appreciation for diversity in the world community; and • understand the importance of civic and social participation and informed decision making. The general education requirements at Santa Fe College are met by a minimum of 36 credit hours representing communication and mathematical skills and introductions to, or surveys of, the academic areas of history, humanities, natural sciences, social sciences, and creative arts. A focus on the diversity of the human condition can be accomplished from the perspective of any one of these areas.

Requirements for the Associate of Arts Degree
• Complete the basic 36-hour requirement of the general education program. • Complete at least 60 semester hours of credit in a prescribed course of study with a minimum 2.0 grade point average. Select courses from those with an assigned ID code of P (Parallel). Courses designated O (Occupational) are not guaranteed for acceptance by upper division institutions. • Meet Rule 6A-10.30 (Gordon Rule). Courses marked with an asterisk (*) will meet a portion of this rule. • Pass or earn exemptions from all subtests of the

Gordon Rule Writing Courses
Santa Fe College has established the following rationale for identifying writing intensive courses that may be used to satisfy the college level writing portion of the Gordon Rule (2a above): A writing intensive course is a content specific course that has as major instructional, learning and assessment objectives, a substantial discipline-based writing component that consists of teacher-assessed college level writing assignments. College level writing exhibits critical and analytical skills to discuss a topic; presents paragraphs that are focused, developed, organized, coherent, and unified; expresses ideas in complete, clear, well-structured sentences; and enhances ideas through discipline-appropriate diction, conventions, and rhetorical strategies. In a writing intensive course, students are expected to produce a substantial amount of disciplined-based writing of which the majority is assessed by faculty towards refining college level writing skills in a specific discipline.

entry into the upper division of a public university or college, a student shall complete successfully the following: a. Six (6) semester hours of English course work and six (6) semester hours of additional course work in which the student is required to demonstrate college-level writing skills through multiple assignments. Each institution shall designate the courses that fulfill the writing requirements of this section. These course designations shall be submitted to the Statewide Course Numbering System. An institution to which a student transfers shall accept courses so designated by the sending institution as meeting the writing requirements outlined in this section. b. Six (6) semester hours of mathematics course work at the level of college algebra or higher. For the purposes of this rule, applied logic, statistics and other such computation course work, which may not be placed within a mathematics department, may be used to fulfill three (3) hours of the six (6) hours required by this section. c. Students awarded college credit in English based on their demonstration of writing skills through dual enrollment, advanced placement, or international baccalaureate instruction pursuant to Rule 6A-10.024, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.), and students awarded college credit based on their demonstration of mathematics skills at the level of college algebra or higher through one (1) or more of the acceleration mechanisms in Rule 6A-10.024, F.A.C., shall be considered to have satisfied the requirements in subsection 6A-10.030(2), F.A.C., to the extent of the college credit awarded. 3. Exemptions and Waivers. Any public community college or university desiring to exempt its students from the requirements of subsection 6A-10.030(2), F.A.C., shall submit an alternative plan to the Department of

Biotechnology (BTN) Associate of Science 3621
The Biotechnology Laboratory Technology Program at Santa Fe College provides for new career opportunities through enhanced science and technical education. In addition to meeting the need of the emerging regional biotechnology industry for entry-level laboratory technicians, the program provides a sound basis for further education in the sciences by giving students hands-on biotechnology laboratory experience. The program is sustained by a formal partnership between SFC, the University of Florida, and industries related to biotechnology. The curriculum, faculty and facilities were established with guidance from local employers to meet student needs. The goal of the Biotechnology Laboratory Technology Program is to develop competent and professional laboratory technicians proficient in entry-level techniques that have a high degree of adaptability. A further aim is to develop the qualities of leadership and scholarship that will allow qualified graduates to pursue baccalaureate educational opportunities. The program is administered in compliance with the curriculum frameworks as governed by the State of Florida Department of Education. Admission to the program requires a 2.0 overall GPA on college transcripts, and successful completion of two semesters of a chemistry sequence, basic mathematics, core biology, and microbiology. Students interested in the A.S. degree in Biotechnology Laboratory Technology should apply after their first academic year, and should complete the program in three semesters. Students may apply to the program for admission during the semester they take BSC1404C, and students who have completed a technical certificate in biotechnology at their high school may qualify for advanced placement. Upon completion of the core program, students earn an Associate of Science degree from Santa Fe College. Graduates are prepared to seek entry-level employment as laboratory technicians competent in preparing solutions and reagents, operating scientific instrumentation, preparing samples for analysis, using recombinant DNA techniques, culturing mammalian cells, purifying and/or characterizing DNA and proteins, and collecting and assessing data. These competencies are fundamental to the development of products from biological systems and basic research. In addition, with proper course selection and additional course work, students can earn an Associate of Arts (A.A.) degree, and be prepared to apply to various upper division programs for further education. Students who have previously completed a degree program and have the prerequisite course work in mathematics, chemistry, and biology can complete an Advanced Technical Certificate in Biotechnology Manufacturing.

Radiography
Radiographers exercise initiative and independent judgment in the performance of X-ray examinations for diagnosis of disease and injury. They also assist radiologists in fluoroscopic and special vascular procedures. Radiographers are in demand in nearly every community, in hospitals, physicians’ offices, clinics, government, education, industry and research. Radiographers operate X-ray equipment, provide patient care, provide radiation protection, position patients for examination, select technical factors for optimum radiographic quality, produce and process radiographs, maintain quality control and maintain patients’ records. Other duties include use of mobile X-ray equipment in the emergency room, operating room and at the patient’s bedside. Radiographers also use other imaging modalities such as ultrasound, CT scanning, mammography, and magnetic resonance imaging. The Radiography Program’s mission statement is: To provide a comprehensive, competency-based radiologic curriculum to prepare a diverse group of graduates with entry-level skills needed to perform quality radiologic procedures and provide the patient with the best possible care. The goal of the program is to develop competent, entrylevel radiographers who have the necessary knowledge to pass the certification examination and who can adapt to changing technology. The Radiography Program also aims to develop leadership qualities necessary for teaching and health care administration. The program is conducted in cooperation with Shands at AGH, Shands at UF, North Florida Regional Medical Center, Veterans Affairs Medical Centers in Gainesville and Lake City, and several hospital-affiliated outpatient imaging facilities. The Radiography Program is accredited by the Joint Review Committee on Education in Radiologic Technology (JRCERT) and by the State of Florida Department of Education. Students are admitted in fall term each year and complete twenty-two (22) months of combined academic and clinical education. Based upon a 40 hour per week schedule, students spend an average of 40 percent of their time in professional and general education courses at the college. The remaining time is spent in the college laboratory or in hospitals, obtaining a complete range of supervised clinical experience including the latest imaging modalities. Upon completion of the program, students receive an Associate of Science degree and are eligible to take the national certification examination administered by the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists (ARRT). ARRT certified radiographers qualify to obtain a Certified General Radiographer License from the State of Florida without additional testing.

Respiratory Care - Associate of Science 3310
Respiratory care is a specialty instrumental in the diagnosis, treatment, management and preventive care of patients with cardiopulmonary problems. These patients may suffer from a variety of acute and chronic respiratory conditions which may be life threatening or disabling, such as cardiac failure, asthma, pulmonary edema, emphysema, congenital defects, drowning, hemorrhage, shock, and trauma. Through proper respiratory care and management, many patients who might not have survived can now return to active lives. The respiratory therapist is a life-support specialist. During emergency calls, which often are life or death situations, respiratory therapists are responsible for life support of the patient through airway management, artificial ventilation, external cardiac massage, and additional sophisticated emergency support measures. Respiratory therapists manage mechanical ventilators (machines that can provide all of the breathing for patients who can’t breathe on their own). Respiratory therapists must be proficient in many areas, including the administration of oxygen and therapeutic aerosols, intermittent positive pressure breathing (IPPB), cardiopulmonary resuscitation, mechanical ventilation, airway management, pulmonary function studies, blood gas retrieval and analysis, and physiologic monitoring. The Respiratory Care Program at Santa Fe College is fully accredited by the Committee on Accreditation for Respiratory Care. The program prepares its graduates to take virtually all of the credentialing examinations offered by the National Board for Respiratory Care, and also provides a sound technical and theoretical base from which the student can have the educational advantage of lateral and upward mobility. An advanced standing policy is available for those applicants and students with previous respiratory therapy experience and/or education.

Surgical Technology Certificate 7338
The certified surgical technologist (CST) is a key member of the surgical team who anticipates the needs of the surgeon and passes instruments, sutures, and sponges in an efficient manner during surgery. Under the supervision of the surgeon, a CST may be involved in holding retractors or instruments, sponging or suctioning the operative site, or cutting suture material. The surgical technologist must perform under pressure in stressful and emergency situations, have a strong sense of responsibility, considerable patience, manual dexterity, and physical stamina. CSTs ensure that the operating room environment is safe, that equipment functions properly, and that the operative procedure is conducted under sterile conditions that maximize patient safety. With additional specialized training or education, a CST may act in the role of surgical first assistant, providing aid in exposure of the wound, suturing and other technical functions. Although CSTs primarily work in the hospital as the sterile member of the surgical team, other job opportunities include work in delivery rooms, emergency departments, and ambulatory care centers. There are also jobs in medical sales, product development, and management roles in surgical services and research. In addition, CSTs are employed directly by surgeons as “private scrubs” and/ or surgical first assistants. They have served in the Peace Corps as well as in all branches of the military. A number of them are instructors and directors of surgical technology programs. The program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Review Committee on Surgical Technology Education. Graduates are qualified to take the NBSTSA National Certification Examination. Achieving the CST credential is crucial for professional recognition and advancement.

A paramedic is a member of the health care team that provides advanced life support to save lives jeopardized by trauma, cardiac events or other illnesses. Paramedics often make critical patient care decisions in situations where seconds and minutes can mean the difference between life and death. Paramedics are often called upon to intervene in situations requiring the ability to reason, rapidly make decisions, defuse anxiety, lead groups of people, and function under tremendous stress. It is essential for an EMT entering the Paramedic Program to have a strong foundation of basic skills upon which to build. Santa Fe College’s Paramedic Program is fully accredited by the Joint Review Committee for the Accreditation of EMT-Paramedic Programs. Upon successful completion of all components of the Paramedic Program, students may be eligible to take the state of Florida Paramedic Certification and/or the National Registry Examination. Prerequisites to the program are: current Florida EMT Certification, Anatomy and Physiology* course (as either BSC2084/L OR BSC2085/L and 2086/L), and American Heart Association health care provider CPR, or its equivalent. *Students anticipating transfer to a four-year baccalaureate institution should take the two-semester Anatomy/Physiology sequence (BSC2085/L and BSC2086/L).

Educator Preparation Institute

Coordinator: Frank Lagotic The Educator Preparation Institute is an alternative teacher certification program that trains nontraditional students as K-12 teachers. EPI enrollees must have at least a bachelor’s degree and Florida Department of Education approval to teach in their subject area. Classes meet at night and on weekends to accommodate those who work full time. The program, which is short but intense, can be completed in a year or less.

The college lends course textbooks to EPI students, which saves them money. EPI instructors work or have worked for the local school board, so they know the school system and what the community needs. They also understand the realities of today’s classroom situation and pass on the skills they have learned. More educators are needed to offset the state’s projected teacher shortage. Santa Fe’s EPI seeks people who are qualified to teach in high-need subject areas like reading, mathematics and science. The program also seeks minorities underrepresented in the teaching profession.
