In publishing this catalog, every reasonable effort has been made to be factually accurate. The publisher 
assumes no responsibility for editorial, clerical, or printing errors. The information presented is, at the time of

Something to keep in mind — 

Although this CATALOG is not a textbook, you will refer to it often during 
your university career. It describes the academic program you select and the 
requirements you must fulfill to graduate. Before you enroll at Southern or 
register for any succeeding 
semester, you should satisfy 
yourself that you are familiar 
with this catalog. 

Two important parts of your 
academic life are General 
Education and your field of 
concentration. You will find 
it especially valuable to read 
carefully the sections of the 
catalog that explain these 
programs. 

Every attempt has been made 

to prepare this catalog so 

everyone may understand it, 

but some of the information 

may still be confusing to you. 

Also, because changes may 

occur in your program 

requirements, you may 

encounter contradictions between this catalog and advice that you later 

receive. Talk to someone about the sections of this catalog that are not clear. 

The first person to talk to is your academic adviser. You may also find help 
from the chair/dean of your department/school. It may be necessary to visit 
with the Director and Assistant Director of Records and Advisement. The Vice 
President for Academic Administration is also available to assist you. If you 
need explanations about financial questions, talk with the Director or Assistant 
Director of Student Finance. 

Remember that you are the one who selects your program of study and it is 
your responsibility to know the graduation requirements and meet them. 




Do not lose this catalog. It is your 'university manual."

This Is Southern 
Adventist University 



Southern Adventist University is a co-educational institution established by the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church* primarily to serve its constituents in the 
southeastern part of the United States. It is principally concerned with 
baccalaureate instruction but offers numerous associate degrees, a small number 
of one-year certificates, and a limited graduate program. 

MISSION STATEMENT 
The Mission 

Southern Adventist University provides a Christian environment where all are 
encouraged to pursue truth, wellness and a life of service. 

Core Values 

• A Christ-centered Seventh-day Adventist campus 

• Academic and professional excellence 

• Hospitality and service 

• Affordable education 

• Balanced lifestyle 






EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES 

The purpose of higher education in the Seventh-day Adventist Church is rooted 
in a comprehensive theological understanding of humanity in the world. The 
following is a summary of this understanding: 

(1 ) Seventh-day Adventists believe that God is the Creator and Sustainer of the 
earth and its inhabitants. He is the Source of all knowledge. 

(2) Created in the image of God for the purpose of communion with Him, 
mankind possessed harmonious physical, mental, spiritual, and social 
attributes. 

(3) As a result of sin, these attributes were seriously marred, but God in His love 
provided a redemptive plan for the restoration of His image in humanity, thus 
preparing individuals for eternal personal fellowship with God. 

In the context of this theological understanding, education is viewed as an 
essential element of redemption, including an awareness of each individual's 
relationship to God and a commitment of service to mankind. Education, 
consequently, must focus on developing the whole person. Southern Adventist 
University attempts to provide a spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical 
environment which encourages this development through the following specific 
objectives. 



♦This University is operated by the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, which is comprised 
of the churches in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, 
and Tennessee. 



This Is Southern Adventist University 7 



Spiritual 

The spiritual goal of Southern Adventist University is to enable students to grasp 
Christian beliefs and values as understood by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, 
Along with three hours of mandatory religion course work for each year of 
attendance, students have religious convocations and various opportunities for 
Christian fellowship and service to help them better internalize these ideals. 

Intellectual 

The intellectual goal of Southern Adventist University is to help students 
confront the ideas and values which underlie civilization. Course requirements 
and general education options aim at broadening and deepening the students' 
outlook. An honors program challenges the most capable students, while 
academic awards recognize a range of scholarly achievements. 

Occupational 

The occupational goal of Southern Adventist University is to prepare students 
for service in a practical world. Although that does not always mean specific 
career orientation, the major and minor course work offers useful competencies 
as well as skills related to specific vocations. 

Social 

Regarding the relationship of individuals to society, the goal of Southern 
Adventist University is to encourage students to attain the social maturity 
necessary for successful family and community living. Southern Adventist 
University provides activities and courses aimed at developing healthy 
interpersonal relations, communication skills, and decision-making abilities. This 
goal includes a commitment by the University to involve its students and staff in 
service activities which benefit both its regional constituency and local 
community. 

Physical 

Regarding personal health, the goal of Southern Adventist University is to 
educate students to be active in promoting their own physical well-being. Southern 
Adventist University is smoke-, alcohol-, and drug-free by policy, and the cafeteria 
offers a meatless diet. Health-oriented courses and activities combine to encourage 
a balance of exercise, rest, diet, study, work, and recreation. 

HISTORY 

In 1892 the educational venture that developed into Southern Adventist 
University had its beginning in the small village of Graysville, Tennessee. The 
school became known as Graysville Academy. In 1896 the name was changed to 
Southern Industrial School and five years later to Southern Training School. 

In 1916, because of limited acreage available for further expansion of plant 
facilities, the school was moved to the Thatcher farm in Hamilton County, 
Tennessee. The name "Collegedale* was given to the anticipated community. At 
its new location, the school opened as Southern Junior College and continued as 
such until 1 944 when it achieved senior college status and the name was changed 
to Southern Missionary College. In 1982 the name was changed to Southern 
College of Seventh-day Adventists. 



8 This Is Southern Adventist University 



In 1996 graduate studies were added to the curriculum and the name was 
changed again, this time to Southern Adventist University. 

SETTING 

Southern Adventist University's one-thousand-acre Collegedale campus is 
nestled in a valley 1 8 miles east of Chattanooga. The quietness and beauty of the 
surroundings are in keeping with the University's educational philosophy.

will be necessary for the student to take a minimum of six semester hours (in solid 
courses) and maintain a college GPA of 2.25 before being accepted at Southern

experience.

the Distance Learning and Training Council (DETC), formerly the Accrediting 
Commission of the National Home Study Council. The official transcript must be 
sent directly to the SAU Admissions Office with date of graduation indicated. 

ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL OF NURSING 

Students applying to nursing courses as freshmen or as transfer students should 
refer to the Nursing section of the Catalog for admission requirements. 

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students wishing to transfer to Southern Adventist University from another 
accredited college or university must follow the same application procedure as 



12 Admissions 



other students. Transfer credits may be applied toward the requirements ,for a 
degree when the student has satisfactorily completed a minimum of twelve 
semester hours in residence. Credit by examination taken at other colleges will be 
accepted according to Southern Adventist University standards (see 'University 
Credit by Examination* in the Academic Policies section of the Catalog on page 
42). A maximum of 72 semester hours may be accepted from a college where the 
highest degree offered is the associate degree. Background deficiencies revealed 
by transcripts and entrance examinations will be given individual attention. 

Credit will be granted for courses taken at institutions which are not regionally 
accredited only after the student has completed at least 16 semester hours at 
Southern Adventist University with a 2.00 or better average. Only those courses 
that are comparable to Southern Adventist University courses and for which the 
student has earned a *C* grade or better will be accepted. 

A student who has been dismissed from another institution because of poor 
scholarship or citizenship, or who is on probation from that institution, is not 
generally eligible for admission until he can qualify for readmission to the 
institution from which he has been dismissed. Transfer students must submit both 
their college and high school official transcripts to the Admissions Office before 
being admitted to registration. All transfer students must show evidence of ACT 
(American College Test) or SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) prior to registration at 
Southern Adventist University. 

ADMISSION OF SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Mature individuals who do not meet the above University admission require- 
ments and who do not wish to become degree candidates, or otherwise qualified 
students who may desire limited credit for transfer to another institution of higher 
learning, may register as special students. A special student may enroll for a 
maximum of five semester hours per term. 

EXTENSION CLASSES 

Extension classes are university classes offered on the campuses of Southern 
Union academies as an opportunity for seniors to earn university credit in skills 
areas that will fulfill part of the General Education requirements at Southern 
Adventist University. Instructors are academy teachers who are qualified with 
appropriate credentials and experience. 

To enroll in an extension class, students must be members of the senior class 
with a grade point average of 3.00 or above during the years of their secondary 
education. 

The extension classes must duplicate as nearly as possible their university 
counterparts in content, degree of difficulty, testing and grading. The use of formal 
Advanced Placement (AP) courses may be used where such are available. 

Southern Union academies that would like to participate in this program must 
contact the Academic Dean to make application. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

An international student applying to Southern Adventist University must have 
completed the equivalent of a United States high school (secondary) education. 
The student is required to list only the institutions and dates attended on the 
application forms, but will not be accepted to Southern Adventist University until 
the University has received original records or official copies of all credits, 
degrees, diplomas and other credentials, with validation by school or national 



Admissions 13 



officials. These should be in the original language, accompanied by a translation 
(not an interpretation) in English, and certified by an American Embassy official if 
possible. 

The Director of Records of Southern Adventist University will evaluate academic 
documents received for international students based on the recommendations 
found in the World Education series of booklets published by the American 
Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and Patterns of 
Seventh-day Adventist Education, published by the General Conference of 
Seventh-day Adventists. 

Students from countries which administer the G.C.E. (General Certificate of 
Education) examinations must have earned five (5) or more *0* level academic 
subject passes (generally at one sitting, with marks 1 through 6 or A through D). 
Subjects must include English, a natural science, and three others selected from 
a second language, mathematics, science, and social studies. 

Proficiency in English, both written and oral, must be proven before admission. 
This may be done by taking the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). 
Students whose TOEFL score is 550 meet the official admission level, but students 
with scores between 450 and 549 may be admitted only on condition that they 
will enroll for special English language proficiency classes. These students must 
enroll as special advisees of the English Department which administers the 
language classes. Students whose TOEFL scores are below 450 are not eligible for 
admission to the University. The ESL adviser will retest all students who arrive 
without TOEFL scores or who do not meet the above criteria. (Students who 
present a Michigan test score for admission to the ESL program will be placed 
accordingly. See criteria for placement.) 

All ESL students on F-1 visas must register for no fewer than 12 credit hours; 
therefore, ESL students in the Intermediate level will register for a minimum of 1 2 
credit hours: 10 credit hours in the ESL program and 2-3 credit hours in a course 
designated by the ESL adviser in the English Department. ESL students in the 
Advanced level will register for a minimum of 12 credit hours: 7 credit hours in 
the ESL program and 5-6 hours in courses designated by the ESL adviser in the 
English Department in consultation with an adviser in the student's concentration. 
For details, see the English Department sections of the Catalog, 

In addition to the regular University expenses, there are other expenses for an 
international student. (Please refer to the Financial Information section of the 
Catalog.) 

According to U.S. Immigration laws, international students may not work more 
than 20 hours per week and may be employed only on the University campus. 

International students should not leave their homeland until they have in their 
possession: 

1 . An admissions letter of acceptance from Southern Adventist University 

2. I-20 form (Immigration and Naturalization Service) 

3. A valid passport 

4. A valid visa to enter the United States 

5. Sufficient funds for the first year at Southern Adventist University (in addition 
to the international security deposit required of all non-U.S. citizens). 



14 Admissions 



APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR ADMISSION 

♦ Prospective students should request application forms from the Office of 
Admissions. 

♦ Completed applications should be returned to the Office of Admissions with an 
application fee of $20. 

♦ It is the student's responsibility to request any former schools (high school and 
college) to forward transcripts to the Office of Admissions in support of the 
application. These will become the property of the University. NO TRAN- 
SCRIPT WILL BE ACCEPTED DIRECTLY FROM AN APPLICANT. 

♦ Students transferring from another college or university must show evidence 
of ACT (American College Test) or SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) prior to 
registration at Southern Adventist University. 

♦ Upon receipt and evaluation of the application, transcripts of credits, recom- 
mendations, and test scores, the Admissions Office will notify the applicant of 
the action taken. 

WHEN TO APPLY OR REAPPLY 

New students are urged to submit applications no later than the last term of the 
senior year of high school. Applications submitted at the beginning of the senior 
year will sometimes enable the University to suggest ways of strengthening the 
student's preparation. Because of the difficulty sometimes encountered during the 
summer months in obtaining necessary transcripts, test scores, and recommenda- 
tions, more time will be necessary for processing late applications. 

Students in residence may submit reapplications without charge until April 30; 
thereafter the regular application fee of $20 will be required. 

ADMISSION TO GRADUATE PROGRAMS 

Students planning to enroll in master's degree programs should write for 
information from the respective School from which the graduate degree is offered. 









Student Life and Services 



A university is not only classroom instruction, but also a mode of association. 
The effectiveness of the University program is enhanced if students develop their 
interests and meet their needs through participation in the nonacademic activities 
provided. Students are encouraged to take advantage of the facilities and 
opportunities planned for their cultural, social, and spiritual growth. 

RESIDENCE HALL LIVING 

Living in a university residence hall with its daily 'give and take* prepares the 
student to meet life with equanimity, teaches respect for the rights and opinions 
of others, and offers first-hand experience in adjusting to a social group. Talge Hall 
houses male students and Thatcher Hall houses female students. 

To assure students this beneficial experience, the University requires those 
students who take more than three semester hours of class work and who are 
unmarried, under 23 years of age, and not living with their parents or other 
approved relatives in the vicinity, to reside in one of the residence halls. 

REHABILITATION ACT (1973) Section 504: Services for Students 
with Special Needs 

Southern Adventist University is dedicated to the elimination of architectural 
and prejudicial barriers which prevent any qualified person from attending. All 
applications are welcomed. Students who anticipate the need for special services 
are encouraged to arrange with the Learning Success Center for a visit to the 
campus at which time the applicant will receive information concerning all 
features of campus life and can share with the University officials any information 
pertinent to personal needs. 

DINING 

For the promotion of student health and enjoyment, Southern Adventist 
University provides a complete vegetarian cafeteria service, organized to serve the 
students' needs. The spacious dining hall is an inviting center of social and cultural 
life at the University, and service by the cafeteria staff is available for the many 
student and faculty social functions. Auxiliary dining rooms are available for 
meetings of various student or faculty organizations. Two vegetarian fast-food 
shops are also operated on the campus by the Food Service Department. K.R.'s 
Place is conveniently located in the Student Center and the Campus Kitchen is at 
nearby-by Fleming Plaza. 

CHAPLAIN'S OFFICE 

Any student of Southern Adventist University has the opportunity to enrich 
his/her personal relationship with Jesus through Campus Ministries' activities. 
Through the programs coordinated from the Chaplain's Office, students can 
engage in a wide variety of on- and off-campus spiritual activities. CARE ministries 
is the acronym for Collegiate Adventist Reaching Everyone. Student leaders 
working with the campus chaplain direct out-reach activities such as Campus 
Ministries, CABL (Collegiate Adventist for Better Living), Destiny Drama Company, 
Collegiate Missions, and numerous religious programs. 

Southern Adventist University enjoys a reputation of having a strong 
commitment to mission service. There are opportunities for short-term mission 
projects as well as traditional student missionary positions or volunteer task force 



1 6 Student Life and Services 



positions. The "Call Book* which is published by the General Conference Youth 
Ministries Department is available in the Chaplain's Office located in the Student 
Center on the third floor of Wright Hall. Students interested in any mission or task 
force position may work through the Chapiain f s Office for information and 
placement in mission positions. 

The campus chaplain serves as a pastor for the University campus. The chaplain 
is available for spiritual counseling, personal and relationship concerns, or any 
situation in which students desire personal and professional counseling. It is the 
desire of the Chaplain's Office to provide a safe, confidential setting for students 
to discuss personal issues. 

Since many university students choose a life partner while here at the 
University, the Chaplain's Office provides various premarital inventories and 
counseling programs to aid in the establishment of healthy Christian relationships. 

CAREER SERVICES 

Key elements in selecting an academic major and career are discovering one's 
interests and abilities. The Counseling Center invites students to discuss career 
options, self-assessment, aptitudes, interests, and goals with a counselor. 

The Counseling Center offers assistance in r§sum6 and cover letter preparation, 
graduate school and employment application processing, and job interview 
preparation. Recruiters from professional schools and businesses regularly visit the 
University to interview seniors. Annual job opportunities and health career fairs 
provide students with opportunities to network with employers. 

COUNSELING AND TESTING SERVICE 

During registration each student is assigned an academic adviser who will assist 
in program planning and give advice and guidance on academic questions 
throughout the school year. Students may also seek counsel concerning academic 
or personal problems from any member of the faculty. 

Students with personal problems who wish assistance from a professional 
counselor should contact the Counseling and Testing Center. Personnel trained in 
counseling and testing are available to those with social and personal problems. 

The testing service works in close cooperation with the counseling service in 
providing guidance information to both students and counselors. Students are 
urged to take advantage of the testing service as a means of obtaining information 
useful in personal, educational, and career planning. 

Southern Adventist University is an established non-Saturday National Test 
Center for the administration of entrance examinations for students applying to 
graduate and professional schools. Contact the Counseling and Testing Center for 
test applications and test date information. 

HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service is administered by a nurse director in cooperation with a 
university physician and the Vice President for Student Services. The director uses 
the physician's standing orders and maintains regular office hours. The University 
physician holds regular clinic hours each weekday morning. 

An infirmary is provided and staffed in the evenings and at night by live-in 
registered nurses who are continuing for their B.S. degrees. These nurses are 
available to students on an on-call basis. 

The Health Service is available to all residence hall occupants and all students 
taking seven or more hours (three hours in the summer). The infirmary is available 



Student Life and Services 17 



to all residence hall occupants. There is no charge for seeing a nurse or using the 
infirmary. There is a minimal charge to cover costs of equipment used in some 
treatments. Medications given are charged by the pharmacy. 

All international students, including spouses and all dependents, nr^ust purchase 
the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan. All other students who are 
taking six hours or more, or who are living in University housing must purchase 
the insurance or show proof of coverage by another policy. Spouses of students 
and those taking less than six hours may also purchase the plan. A policy brochure 
describing complete benefits and terms is given to each student at registration. In 
case of major illness, students may be referred to off-campus hospital facilities. 

ORIENTATION PROGRAM 

Southern Adventist University has a personal interest in the success of the 
student desiring a university education. There is much that the student must do to 
get acquainted with the academic, social, and religious life of the University by 
perusing this bulletin and the Southern Adventist University Student Handbook. 
Instruction and counsel are given which will help the student better understand 
the university program and what is expected of him/her as a citizen of the 
University community. 

Orientation for new freshman students is held prior to registration for the fall 
term. It includes examinations and instruction helpful in course planning. The 
student is introduced to the facilities, purposes, and functions of the University. 
Social occasions are also provided when students may meet faculty members and 
fellow students. All new freshman students are required to attend the orientation 
program. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE 

Southern Adventist University encourages every student enrolled to organize 
his/her educational program on the study-work plan. It is a policy of the University 
to give students first priority for jobs. If a student wants to work, is physically and 
emotionally able to work, and has arranged his class schedule to accommodate 
a reasonable work schedule, he should be able to obtain employment on campus. 
Students seeking employment should contact the Personnel/Student Employment 
Office. 

STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

Every student at Southern Adventist University who is taking eight or more 
semester hours of class work is a member of the Student Association with voting 
privileges in the election of officers. Opportunities for leadership development and 
for cooperation in achieving the objectives of Southern Adventist University are 
afforded by the Association. The Association assists the University administration 
and faculty in the implementation of policies and assumes responsibility in giving 
direction to campus activities entrusted to it. 

The Association's activities are coordinated and communicated through the 
Student Senate and Cabinet and their several committees. The activities include 
the publishing 6f the newspaper, Southern Accent; the yearbook, Southern 
Memories; the weekly announcement sheet, Campus Chatter; and the student- 
faculty pictorial directory, loker. 

The activities and responsibilities of the officers and the detailed organization 
of the Student Association are outlined in the Student Association Constitution and 
Bylaws.

CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS 

In addition to the Student Association and its committees, more than thirty 
campus organizations provide opportunities for enrichment, leadership training, 
and enjoyment They include church-related organizations— Campus Ministries, 
Student Ministerial Association, Collegiate Adventists for Better Living; clubs 
related to academic interests sponsored by the departments; social clubs— Married 
Couples 1 Forum, Sigma Theta Chi (women), Upsilon Delta Phi (men), Black 
Christian Union, and special interest or hobby clubs. 

Students may join any of the clubs but must have a cumulative grade point 
average of 2.25 or a grade point average of 2.50 for the previous semester to hold 
any office. 

CONCERT-LECTURE SERIES 

Each year a concert-lecture series featuring significant artists and lecturers is 
provided for students, generally in connection with the weekly assembly program. 
The cost of admission for students is included in the tuition. 

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

In harmony with the objectives of the University, high standards of behavior are 
maintained to encourage the development of genuine Christian character. Mature 
Christian students of sound spiritual and social integrity appreciate standards that 
elevate and ennoble. Admission to Southern Adventist University is a privilege that 
requires the acceptance of and compliance with published and announced 
regulations. Only those whose principles and interests are in harmony with the 
ideals of the University and who willingly subscribe to the social program as 
ordered are welcomed. It therefore follows that since students at Southern 
Adventist University receive an education subsidized by the Seventh-day Adventist 
Church, those who engage in activities determined to be detrimental to the church 
on or off campus will not be knowingly accepted or retained. 

A student who is out of harmony with the social policies of the University, who 
is uncooperative, and whose attitude gives evidence of an unresponsive nature 
may be advised to withdraw without specific charge. The use of tobacco or 
alcoholic beverages, the improper use of drugs, card playing, dancing, profane or 
vulgar language, hazing, and improper associations are to be avoided. 

Each student is expected to acquaint himself with the standards of conduct 
published in the Southern Adventist University Student Handbook. The handbook 
includes levels of social discipline and the appeal route. A copy may be obtained 
from the office of the Vice President for Student Services. Interim announcements 
of policies adopted by the faculty are of equal force with those listed in official 
publications. 

ASSEMBLY AND WORSHIP SERVICES 

In private parochial education it has been shown that elimination of residence 
hall worships and all school-wide convocations is the first step toward the 
separation of the school from its sponsoring church. Convocation exercises in the 
residence halls and for the entire student body serve educational and religious 
purposes. They also provide an element of unity which is one of the most 
desirable features of private education such as is found at Southern Adventist 
University. The religious emphasis weeks and the weekend church services assist 
in the spiritual growth of the students. Students are required to attend these 
services regularly. 



Student Life and Services 1 9 



Failure to do so will jeopardize the student's current status and readmission 
privileges. 

PHOTO RELEASE 

By registering at Southern Adventist University, students authorize the use and 
reproduction by the University, or anyone authorized by the University, of any 
pictorial images (including conventional, video, and digital photography) taken of

PLANNING A COURSE OF STUDY 

When planning their course work, students should acquaint themselves with

before the beginning of the fall term. Students planning to teach should consult the 
School of Education and Psychology to include teacher education courses as a 
part of their program in order to qualify for denominational and state certification. 

Degree candidates are responsible for satisfying all degree requirements. They 
may choose to meet the requirements of any one catalog iri effect during the

PREREQUISITE FOR TAKING UPPER DIVISION CLASSES 

Students must complete forty semester hours of 100 and 200 level courses 
(lower division) before enrolling in a 300 or 400 level course (upper division). The 
English Composition and mathematics requirements in area A, Basic Academic

classes. 

GENERAL EDUCATION 

General Education is an important part of what students experience at Southern 
Adventist University. It is provided through several programs, four of which are 
described here—Writing Across the Curriculum, Community Service, General 
Education Course Requirements, and Southern Scholars. 

Writing Across the Curriculum: The Writing Across the Curriculum program at 
Southern Adventist University is one of the longest-running programs of its kind 
in the nation. The goal of the program is to assist students in developing writing 
skills suitable to various disciplines. Such skills will also make students more 
competitive in the job market. Thus, candidates for the bachelor's degree must 
complete three writing-emphasis classes as outlined in the general education 
requirements. These classes are carefully tailored to emphasize personal growth 
in writing skills through both spontaneous and planned writing exercises. Students 
should also expect writing requirements in courses other than those designated as 
writing-emphasis courses. 

Community Service: Promotion of voluntary, unselfish service to mankind is a 
thread that runs through all programs of study at Southern Adventist University. 
Volunteerism, however, cannot be mandated. It can only be encouraged. Students 
at Southern are encouraged to volunteer for community service through 
government, philanthropic, cultural, political, church, medical, educational, 
environmental, and other organizations and agencies or through individual 
projects. Based on nominations from each academic department, Community 
Service Awards are presented each year at the annual Awards Assembly to 
students who have made an exceptional contribution of time and effort in serving 
others. 

General Education Course Requirements: While recognizing the validity of 
many different general education programs, the faculty of Southern Adventist 
University have designed the following sequence that provides development of 
academic skills and opportunities for self-fulfillment, and conveys basic values of 
both the Seventh-day Adventist Church and western civilization. Students may 
exercise considerable latitude when selecting courses to comply with General 
Education requirements. A comprehensive general education test is required of all 
four-year seniors.

Assoc. Bachelor's 
AREA A. ACADEMIC & COMMUNICATION SKILLS 

A graduate of Southern Adventist University can use 
the skills of reading, writing, and mathematics. 

Underlying all general education requirements are the 
basic academic skills of English and mathematics. It is 
important for a graduate to be able to discern an author's 
organization, arguments, and supports, and to write 
coherently, fluently, and grammatically. Graduates need 
numeric and symbolic computation skills to function 
successfully in our scientific and technological society.

AMERICAN HUMANICS 

In the fall of 1997, Southern Adventist University affiliated with American 
Humanics, to provide non-profit management certification for graduates meeting 
the requirements for entry-level management positions in the non-profit sector. 
Southern Adventist University is a joint participant in the Southeast Center for 
Non-Profit Management, Leadership and Training and Education (SCNMLTE) along 
with Covenant College and the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. This joint 
partnership affords Southern Adventist University students the opportunity to meet 
curricular and co-curricular requirements for American Humanics certification. 
American Humanics and its many non-profit partners provide scholarship and job 
opportunities to those working towards certification. Dr. Pam Harris coordinates 
the program as the campus executive director. 

SOUTHERN SCHOLARS (Honors Program): 

The honors program is designed for students who bring to their baccalaureate 
studies a high degree of motivation and intellectual curiosity. Special projects, 
inter-disciplinary studies, and designated honors courses provide a challenging 
and intellectually stimulating educational experience. Degrees of depth and 
breadth are attained in this experience beyond those normally attained in regular 
baccalaureate studies. 

The program is administered by an Honors Committee which admits students 
to the program and discontinues honors status of those who fail to maintain 
minimum program standards. Its members also advise individual Southern 



Academic Policies 31 



Scholars and continually monitor their progress. 

Eligible students will be invited to become Southern Scholars during registration. 
Freshmen are eligible if they have a high school GPA of 3.70 or higher. Other 
students must^have completed at least 31 and at most 62 semester hours 
(exceptions may be granted under special conditions) with a cumulative GPA of 
3.50 or higher. 

To continue as Southern Scholars, students must complete a minimum of twelve 
credits each semester and thirty-one credits each calendar year. They must also 
enroll in appropriate honors sequence courses, receive a B (3.00) average or 
higher in the honors sequence courses and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA 
of 3.50. All honors students are expected to graduate within a four-year period 
unless extenuating circumstances justify an extension by the honors committee. 

Ordinarily, all courses of the honors sequence must be taken in residence. 
Limited exceptions may be made by the honors committee in the case of transfer 
students. Students already enrolled at Southern Adventist University who wish to 
take honors sequence classes at another institution must secure prior approval 
from the honors committee. 

After completing one year in the honors program, Southern Scholars may 
receive a waiver for the cost of auditing one class each semester that they remain 
in the program. Once having earned junior status and having finished one year in 
the program, Southern Scholars will receive a tuition refund equivalent to four 
three-hour classes. The *per hour* rate for a 16-hour class load will be the basis 
for calculating the refund. Southern Scholars also receive a 100 percent tuition 
waiver for Honors Seminar, HMNT 451, 452, calculated according to the tuition 
waiver policy explained on page 255.

PREPROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

Southern Adventist University offers preprofessional and pre-technical programs 
in a wide variety of fields which may prepare students for admission to 
professional schools or to enter technical careers. The following nondegree pre- 
professional curricula are offered at Southern Adventist University: 
Anesthesia Optometry 

Dentistry Osteopathic Medicine 

Law Pharmacy 

Medicine Veterinary Medicine 

Detailed requirements for non-degree preprofessional curricula are outlined by 
department or in the section on "Interdepartmental Programs* (See Index). 

Associate degrees in Allied Health are available to students who fulfill 
preprofessional requirements for programs designated in the Allied Health section. 
Because preprofessional and technical admission requirements may vary from one 
professional school to another, students should become acquainted with the 
admission requirements of their chosen school. 

REGISTRATION 

Students are expected to register during the scheduled registration periods 
designated in the school calendar. Registration is complete only after they have 
finished all procedures and returned registration forms to the Records Office. 
Freshmen are required to participate in the orientation activities. 

Late Registration. Permission to register late must be obtained from the Director 
of Records. Students failing to register during the scheduled registration periods 
will be charged a late registration fee. The course load of a late registrant may be 
reduced according to the amount of class work missed. No student may register 
after two weeks of the semester have elapsed. 

Changes in Registration. To avoid changes in registration, students should 
carefully consider the program of courses necessary to meet their objectives. To 
avoid subsequent adjustments, a balance should be maintained between the 
course load, work program, and extracurricular activities. 



36 Academic Policies 



To make program changes, students must obtain the appropriate change of 
registration voucher at the Records Office, obtain the necessary signatures 
indicating approval of the change, and return the form to the Records Office. 
Course changes and complete withdrawals from the school become effective on 
the date the voucher is filed at the Records Office. A fee will be assessed for each 
change in program after the first week of instruction. 

A student may not change from one section to another of the same course 
without the approval of the instructor. 

A student may withdraw from a class up to two weeks after midterm and receive 
a grade of *W* automatically. A student withdrawing from a class after that date 
and up to two weeks before the last day of classes will be assigned a grade of "W" 
or *WF* by the teacher. The grade for any withdrawal during the final two weeks 
of the semester will automatically be *F/ 

Auditing Courses. With the approval of the department/school, students may 
register on an audit basis in courses (other than private lessons) for which they are 
qualified. Auditors are to be admitted to classes of limited enrollment only if there 
are places after all students who wish to enroll for credit have been 
accommodated. Class attendance is expected but examinations and reports may 
be omitted. With the approval of the instructor, a student may change a course 
registration from audit to credit or from credit to audit only during the first week 
of instruction. No credit is given for courses audited, and the fee is one-half of the 
regular tuition charge. 

Canceled Classes. The Vice President for Academic Administration or a 
department/school may cancel a class for which fewer than six tuition paying 
students enroll. This policy applies to ordinary classes but not to directed study 
courses, private lessons, and other special classes such as special methods of 
secondary teaching. Students enrolled in canceled classes should confer with their 
advisers to determine alternate means to complete their schedules. 

COURSE LOAD 

University courses are expressed in semester hours. A semester hour consists of 
one fifty-minute class period per week for one semester. Thus, two-semester-hour 
classes meet two hours a week and three-semester-hour classes meet three hours 
a week. A laboratory period of two and one-half to three hours is equal to one 
class period. Students should expect to study up to two hours outside of class for 
each fifty-minute period the class meets. Ideally, a sixteen-semester-hour class load 
should require up to 32 hours of study each week by the student. Except by 
permission of the Vice President for Academic Administration, a student may not 
register for eighteen or more semester hours. 

To qualify for a baccalaureate degree in four years, a student must average 
between fifteen and sixteen hours per semester. The summer term may be used to 
advantage by students wishing to complete degree requirements in less than four 
years or by students having to take reduced programs of studies during the regular 
academic year. The typical class load during the summer is one three-hour class 
per session. 

Study-Work Program. It is important that the student adjust the course load to 
achieve a reasonable balance in study and work. During registration the student 
should confer with his/her adviser in planning the proper balance of study and 
work. 



Academic Policies 37 



In determining an acceptable study-work program, the following will serve as 
a guide: 

Course Load Maximum Work Load 

16 hours 16 hours 

14 hours 20 hours 

12 hours 26 hours 

10 hours. 32 hours 

8 hours 38 hours 

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Southern Adventist University is committed to assist every student in the area 
of academic advisement. Every full-time student is assigned an academic adviser 
from his/her major field and is required to consult with the adviser before 
registering for classes. 

The responsibility of meeting graduation requirements belongs to the individual 
student. In planning their schedules all students should carefully follow the 
instructions in the Catalog, recommendations of their advisers, and reports of 
academic progress issued from the Records Office. In the event of a discrepancy 
between an adviser's word and the catalog, final interpretation of graduation 
requirements rests with the Records and Advisement Office. 

Seniors must file an application for graduation at the fall registration of their 
senior year. Previous to their senior year students should check periodically with 
the Records and Advisement office to determine whether they are meeting all 
curriculum requirements satisfactorily. 

As early as possible in the process of curriculum planning, students who have 
chosen a career in teaching should consult the Teacher Certification Officer 
regarding the requirements for teaching credentials. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

Southern Adventist University does not have an institutional grading policy. 
Teachers use a variety of methods to evaluate students' performance, but the 
grades they issue are defined as follows: 

A Superior; the student demonstrates exceptional capability in handling course 
material 

B Above average; the student's demonstrated capability in handling course 
material exceeds the expectation of the teacher 

C Average; the student demonstrates a satisfactory grasp of course material 
which the instructor intends students to learn in the class 

D Below average; the student's demonstrated ability to deal with the course 
material is less than the teacher intends students to learn 

F Failing; the student does not demonstrate sufficient capability with the course 
material to merit a passing grade 

W Withdrew from the class; is not calculated in the GPA 

WF Withdrew Failing; calculated as an *F* in the GPA 

AU Audit; no credit 

I Incomplete; is not calculated in the GPA 



38 Academic Policies 



IP In Progress; a temporary passing grade for interrupted course work still in 

progress; is not calculated in the GPA 
P Pass; is not calculated in the GPA 

The Pass/Fail option is available only in Physical Education activity classes 
(PEAQ. Students enrolling in these classes must make a decision either to receive 
a grade of Pass/Fail or a conventional grade before the final grades are 
submitted. The decision will be final. 

A student may receive an *l* (Incomplete) because of illness or other 
unavoidable delay. Students who are eligible for an incomplete must secure from 
the Records Office the proper form and file the application with the teacher to 
receive an incomplete. There is a charge of $7.50 for processing grades of 
incomplete. Any incomplete which is not removed by the end of the following 
term (Fall, Winter) will automatically become an *F." A teacher may assign a 
temporary "IP* (in progress) when an unavoidable problem prevents the issuance 
of a grade. 

A course may be repeated before the student takes a more advanced course in 
the same field. Only the last grade will be counted on repeated courses. No course 
may be repeated more than once without permission from the Vice President for 
Academic Administration. 

Mid-semester and semester grade reports are issued to the student and parents 
of students termed "dependent* for income tax purposes. Only semester grades are 
recorded on the student's permanent record. The following system of grading and 
grade point values is used: 

A 4.0 grade points per hour C 2.0 grade points per hour 

A- 3.7 grade points per hour C- 1 .7 grade points per hour 

B + 3.3 grade points per hour D + 1 .3 grade points per hour 

B 3.0 grade points per hour D 1 .0 grade points per hour 

B- 2.7 grade points per hour D- 0.7 grade points per hour 

C + 2.3 grade points per hour F 0.0 grade points per hour 

WF 0.0 grade points per hour 
The grade point average is calculated by dividing the total number of grade 
points earned by the credit hours attempted. 

STUDENT RECORDS 

A student's record is regarded as confidential, and release of the record or of 
information contained therein is governed by regulations of the federal law on 
'Family Educational Rights and Privacy/ Only directory information, such as a 
student's name, photograph, address, telephone listing, birthplace and date, major 
fields of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, dates of 
attendance, degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous 
educational agency or institution attended, may be released by the institution 
without consent of the student unless the student has asked SAU to withhold such 
information. 

Parents of students termed "dependent* for income tax purposes are entitled to 
access to the student's educational records. The law also provides for the release 
of information to university personnel who demonstrate a legitimate educational 
interest, other institutions engaged in research (provided information is not 
revealed to any other parties), and certain federal and state government officials. 

A student may inspect and review records and is entitled to challenge the 
content of records. 

A more thorough explanation of records may be obtained from the Records 



Academic Policies 39 



Office. The Director of Records will further explain and clarify the Family 
Educational Rights and Privacy Act to students, parents, or interested parties upon 
request. 

ACADEMIC HONESTY 

Morally and spiritually, Southern Adventist University is dedicated to scholastic 
integrity. Consequently, both students and faculty are required to maintain high, 
ethical Christian levels of honesty. 

Faculty Responsibilities: 

1 . Teachers must explain clearly the requirements for assignments, examinations, 
and projects, such as *open book," *take home/ or "peer collaboration.* 

2. Teachers may assume *no collaboration* is the rule unless they state otherwise. 

Student Responsibilities: 

1. Students assume responsibility to avoid plagiarism by learning the proper 
procedures for acknowledging borrowed wording, information, or ideas. Otherwise 
students might innocently misrepresent others' material as their own. 

2. Students unfamiliar with procedures for citing sources should confer with their 
teachers. 

3. Students are to assume that all course work is *no collaboration" unless stated 
otherwise by the teacher. 

Schools/Departmental Policies: 

Some departments/schools, because of the nature of their programs, have 
additional honesty policies which have the same force as those published here. 
Such policies will be presented to students before implementation. 

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty: 

1. When a teacher suspects academic dishonesty in some form, such as cheating 
or plagiarizing, the teacher must first confront the student with the dishonesty. If the 
student and teacher cannot resolve the situation, or if the student's grade will be 
affected, then the Vice President for Academic Administration must be consulted. 

2. In established instances of academic dishonesty, the usual procedures for the 
teacher to follow will be to: 

a. Give the student a failing grade on the exam, assignment or project if the 
magnitude of either is not sufficient for failing the class. 

b. Give the student a failing grade in the class if failing the exam, assignment 
or project would constitute failing the class. The teacher will then write up 
the incident and state the penalty administered, giving a copy to both the 
Vice President for Academic Administration and the student. 

3. Two incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible to be dismissed 
from the University. However, the student may then appeal the action through the 
established appeal procedures spelled out in the "Grievance Procedure* section of this 
Catalog, 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

Any student whose GPA does not meet the criteria for graduation is on 
academic probation. The following are four categories of students who are on 
academic probation: 



40 Academic Policies 



1 . Students whose Southern Adventist University or cumulative GPA falls 
below 2.00. They are not eligible to hold office in any student 
organization. 

2. Entering freshmen whose high school GPA is below 2.00 or if their 
composite ACT score is less than 1 8. 

3. Transfer students whose GPA is less than 2.00. 

4. Students in baccalaureate programs completing their sophomore year 
with a GPA in their major field less than the level required for 
graduation. For most degrees the institutional graduation requirement is 
2.25, but some programs may designate a higher GPA. 

Students on academic probation are allowed to remain in school but must 
demonstrate progressive improvement to meet graduation requirements. Veterans 
on probation will not be certified if improvement has not been made after two 
semesters. 

Candidates for a baccalaureate degree must achieve a minimum GPA of 1 .95 
before beginning their final 30 hours. Candidates for an associate degree must 
have a GPA of 1.95 before beginning their final year. Students in one-year 
certificate programs must have a GPA of 2.00 before beginning their final 
semester. 

Students are subject to academic dismissal if their Southern Adventist 
University or cumulative GPA does not reach the levels indicated in the preceding 
paragraph or the levels in the following table: 



Semester Hours Attempted 


GPA/Subject to Dismissal 


6-48 


1.50 


49-64 


1.65 


65-80 


1.75 


81-93 


1.85 


94-116 


1.95 


117-up 


2.00 



At the end of each semester the Academic Review Committee reviews the 
records of students who are subject to dismissal and the Vice President for 
Academic Administration will notify students in writing whether or not they may 
continue. A student academically dismissed may be readmitted only after 
demonstrating maturity and motivation for a university career. The dismissed 
student may be required to complete successfully at least one term of college-level 
courses at another institution prior to readmission at Southern Adventist 
University. 

Students receiving financial aid must also meet an academic progress policy set 
by the federal government. For further explanation see page 269, 'Southern 
Adventist University Academic Progress for Federal and Institutional Student 
Financial Aid/ 

RIGHT OF PETITION 

Students who believe there is a valid reason for requesting variance from or 
exception to an academic policy stated in the Catalog may make a petition to the 
Director of Records for consideration of their case after obtaining the advice and 
signature of the department chair or school dean of their major. The petition must 



Academic Policies 41 



contain a statement of the request and supporting reasons. Highly unusual 
requests will be referred to the Vice President for Academic Administration. 
Students will be notified in writing by the Director of Records of the action on 
petitions within five working days. Petition forms are available from the Records 
Office. 

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE 

Students who believe that their academic rights have been infringed upon or 
that they have been treated unjustly with respect to their academic program are 
entitled to a fair and impartial consideration of their cases. They should do the 
following to effect a solution: 

1 . Present the case to the teacher or teachers concerned. 

2. If necessary, discuss the problem with the department chair or school dean. 

3. If agreement is not reached at this level, submit the matter to the Vice President 
for Academic Administration. 

4. Finally, ask for a review of the case by the Grievance Committee, chaired by the 
Vice President for Academic Administration or his designee and including three 
other faculty members and two students selected by the Academic Affairs 
Committee. Both the student and the teacher involved in the case are entitled to 
appear before the committee or to present a written statement of the case. The 
decision of the committee shall be presented in writing to the individuals 
involved within three days of the committee meeting unless a later time is agreed 
upon by both parties. The decision of the committee is binding and will be 
implemented by the teacher involved or the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. 

ABSENCES 

Class. Attendance at class and laboratory appointments is expected. Teachers 
prepare an absence policy for each class, which includes an explanation of 
penalties, if any, for absences, and the procedure for making up work, if such is 
allowed. It is the responsibility of teachers to publish their policies for each class 
at the beginning of each semester, but it is the students 1 responsibility to 
familiarize themselves with the practices of each teacher from whom they are 
taking classes. Generally speaking, teachers will not excuse absences for reasons 
other than illness, authorized school trips, or emergencies beyond the students' 
control. 

Students are not penalized if they incur absences while participating in 
school-authorized activities, but they are held responsible for work they miss and 
it is their responsibility to initiate arrangements to make up their assignments. One 
and one-half absences are given for missing a 75-minute class, two for missing a 
100-minute class, etc. 

Examination. Because of problems concerning time, expense and fairness, final 
examinations will be taken as scheduled in the official examinations schedule. In 
the case of illness verified by Student Health Service or a physician, death in the 
immediate family, three examinations scheduled consecutively in one day, or four 
or more examinations scheduled in one day, a final exam may be rescheduled 
upon approval by the teacher and the Vice President for Academic Administration. 
The rescheduled examination will be given at a time convenient to the teacher. 

When examinations are rescheduled because of three scheduled consecutively 
in one day or four in one day, the last examination of the day will normally be the 
one rescheduled. Examinations rescheduled for any reason other than those listed 



42 Academic Policies 



above, may require a fee of $63 per examination. All rescheduling requests will 
be made on a form available at the office of the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. 

Assembly, Assemblies are held each Thursday at 1 1 :00 a.m. During weeks of 
spiritual emphasis, assemblies are held on Tuesday as well. Occasionally, 
assemblies will be held in the evening or may begin at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. 
All students are required to attend 16 assemblies each semester. Failure to meet 
this assembly requirement may result in suspension of registration. Exceptions to 
the assembly attendance requirement are made by the Office of Student Services 
only for legitimate direct work or class conflicts with scheduled assemblies. Any 
excuses for absences from assembly must be approved by the Vice President for 
Student Services. 

A special series of orientation assemblies is scheduled during the fourth 
summer session. 

LIMITATIONS ON CLASS ATTENDANCE 

Classes at Southern Adventist University are open to registered students only. 
Information disseminated in the classroom or other places of learning is the 
primary product that the University sells, hence visitors may not enter such 
gatherings unless they are official guests of the institution with legitimate business 
in a classroom or have the permission of the instructor. Visitors who attend classes 
may not engage in the discussions of a class unless invited to do so. 

Teachers and the institution reserve the right to remove legitimate students from 
classes if their behavior threatens the purposes of the class by exceeding the 
bounds of normal academic freedom. 

Teachers conducting extension classes from other institutions on the Southern 
Adventist University campus share the rights spelled out by this policy. 

WAIVER EXAMINATIONS 

Upon the approval of the department chair or school dean and the Vice 
President for Academic Administration, students may obtain a waiver of curricular 
requirements by successfully completing a comprehensive examination—written, 
oral, manipulative, or otherwise, as determined by the department/school 
involved. A fee of $48 per examination is charged. 

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE 

Southern Adventist University offers a program in English as a Second Language 
for Intermediate and Advanced level students whose English language skills are 
below the official admission level of the TOEFL score of 550. For details, see the 
Admissions and English Department sections of the Catalog. 

NONTRADITIONAL COLLEGE CREDIT 

In addition to credit earned in the traditional classroom setting, Southern 
Adventist University accepts credit earned by two other means— challenge 
examinations and correspondence courses. 

The goals and objectives of the University emphasize not only facts and 
concepts but also values and attitudes which are not easily transmitted through 
correspondence courses or measured by examinations. These values and attitudes 
can best be developed by the student's interacting over a period of time with peers 
and teachers committed to moral excellence, critical thinking, and the pursuit of 
truth. For this reason, most university credits should be earned through class 



Academic Policies 43 



participation. However, the University will permit a maximum of one-fourth of the 
credit required for a given degree to be earned by these nontraditional means. 

University Credit by Examination. The University recognizes three types of 
examinations for credit: challenge examinations prepared by a department which 
must be passed at *B* level or above, approved College Level Examination 
Program (CLEP) subject examinations which must be passed at the sixty-fifth 
percentile or above, and the Advanced Placement Examinations which must be 
passed with a score of three or better. 

Not all classes listed in the catalog are open to challenge examinations. 
Students must obtain clearance from the department chair or school dean or the 
class they propose to challenge before petitioning to earn credit by examination. 
Students must also furnish evidence of adequate preparation to challenge a class 
before the department chair or school dean assigns a teacher to prepare a 
challenge examination. A student may challenge a given course by examination 
only once. No CLEP or challenge exam may be attempted after the student has 
been enrolled in that course beyond the second week of a semester. No course 
may be challenged as part of the last thirty hours of any degree. Grades are 
recorded for departmental challenge examinations and scaled scores are recorded 
for nationally formed examinations. Permission to take a challenge examination 
while in residence must be obtained from both the department chair or school 
dean and the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

Students may earn a maximum of twelve hours of credit by examination in 
courses that do not appear in the University Catalog if the evaluating tests are 
approved by the Academic Affairs Committee. 

Credit for challenge and/or validation examinations will not be placed on a 
students permanent record and is, therefore, not transferable until that student has 
successfully completed twelve semester hours in residence at Southern Adventist 
University. 

Fees charged for challenge examination and credit are listed under 'Special 
Fees and Charges* in the financial section of this Catalog, 

Additional information concerning challenge examinations may be obtained 
from the Records Office or the Counseling and Testing Center. 

Correspondence. A maximum of twelve semester hours of correspondence or 
extension credit may apply toward a baccalaureate degree program and eight 
hours toward an associate degree. 

Griggs University, a department of Home Study International, Silver Spring, 
MD, is the officially recognized correspondence school. Southern Adventist 
University recommends Home Study International for those students needing 
correspondence credit and accepts all such credits when the study program is 
approved by the University prior to enrollment. The University accepts credits 
from correspondence schools which are accredited by NUCEA (National 
University Continuing Education Association) on the basis that credits are accepted 
from other regionally accredited colleges or universities. 

A student will be permitted to carry correspondence work while in residence 
only if the required course is unobtainable at the University. Correspondence 
courses, whether taken while in residence or during the summer, must be 
approved in advance by the University. 

Correspondence work may not apply on the upper division requirements of the 
major or minor. A minimum grade of *B* must be earned to apply on the lower 
division requirements for a major. A course in which the student earned a grade 



44 Academic Policies 



of *D* or *F* while in residence may not be repeated by correspondence. No 
correspondence credit will be entered on the students record until s/he has earned 
a minimum of twelve hours in residence with an average of at least *C* Official 
transcripts must be in the Records Office before a diploma will be ordered. The 
graduation date will be the last day of the month after the official transcript is 
received. 

Practicums and Internships. Suggested departmental/school guidelines for 
practicums and internships. 

Praqiggms: 

a. A minimum of 50 clock hours per one credit hour. 

b. The process of learning a job on a part-time basis. 
c The work may be done at various job sites. 

Internship?: 

a. A minimum of 100 clock hours per one credit hour. 

b. The application of learning the skills of a job on a full-time basis. 

c. The work must be supervised on one job site. 

A two-thirds tuition waiver applies except when indicated in a course 
description. 

TRANSIENT STUDENT 

A Southern Adventist University student acquires transient student status when 
s/he is granted permission through the Southern Adventist University Records 
Office to enroll for automatically transferrable credit at another accredited 
institution. The credit that students may transfer must meet Southern Adventist 
University criteria for transfer credit and residence requirements. 

To receive transient status, a student must: 

1 . have completed a minimum of twelve hours in residence at Southern 
Adventist University and 

2. be enrolled simultaneously at Southern Adventist University for a 
minimum of three hours of class credit. (This condition does not apply 
to summer classes.) 

Students may not receive transient status for more than one semester during 
which the amount of transferrable credit exceeds the amount of simultaneous 
credit earned at Southern Adventist University. 

EXTENSION CLASSES 

Extension classes are university classes offered on the campuses of Southern 
Union academies as an opportunity for seniors to earn university credit in skills 
areas that will fulfill part of the General Education requirements at Southern 
Adventist University. Instructors are academy teachers who are qualified with 
appropriate credentials and experience. 

To enroll in an extension class, students must be members of the senior class with 
a grade point average of 3.00 or above during the years of their secondary education. 

The extension classes must duplicate as nearly as possible their university 
counterparts in content, degree of difficulty, testing and grading. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Southern Adventist University makes continuing education credit available 
through the Records and Advisement Office. Sponsors of organizations wishing to 
offer Southern Adventist University continuing education certificates must 



Academic Policies 45 



complete the following steps: 

1. Secure approval of the program by 

a. applying at the Records and Advisement Office at least two weeks before 
conducting the workshop/seminar/conference and 

b. submitting with their application the topic of the presentation, an outline of 
the presentation, and the name of the presenters) with evidence credentials, 

2. File an evaluation of the workshop/seminar/conference following the 
presentation. The University will furnish evaluation forms. 

3. Participants in continuing education events must pay institutional processing fees 
to receive their certificates. 

TRANSCRIPTS 

Students may obtain transcripts of their academic record upon a written request 
to the Office of Records and Advisement. A $5 fee will be charged for all 
transcripts requiring one-day services and individual requests requiring an excess 
of more than five transcripts. Telephone or E-mail requests from students, and 
telephone and written requests from someone on their behalf cannot be honored. 

A student may receive an unofficial transcript for evaluative purposes by 
applying in person at the Records Office. Official transcripts given directly to a 
student will be stamped "Student Copy/ No transcript will be issued for a student 
whose account is not paid in full or who is delinquent in payment of student 
loans. For further clarification regarding transcripts, diplomas, and test scores see 
page 260. 

SEQUENCE OF COURSES 

A student may not receive credit for a course which is a prerequisite to a course 
for which s/he has already received credit. 

AFFILIATION AND EXTENSION SITES 

Southern Adventist University offers baccalaureate degrees in nursing at two 
Florida sites: Blake Campus in Bradenton, and Bayonet Point/Hudson Campus in 
Bayonet Point, 

Beginning January 1, 1997, Southern Adventist University affiliated with 
Helderberg College in Somerset West, South Africa, for the purpose of offering the 
B.B.A. degree in management and accounting on the campus of Helderberg 
College. 



46 Departmental Courses of Study 



COURSE NUMBERS 

Each course number consists of three figures as follows: 

HIST 354 . Latin America (C-1), (W) 3 hours 

The first numeral indicates class year status as follows: 
0— Developmental (no credit) 
1— freshman level (lower division) 
2— sophomore level (lower division) 
3— junior level (upper division) 
4— senior level (upper division) 

Within a given 100 sequence there is no significance in one course number 
being higher than another. For instance, 265 does not necessarily mean that the 
course is on a higher level than 235. 

Course numbers separated by a hyphen are two-semester courses in which 
credit for the first course is a prerequisite to the second [e.g., ENGL 101-102. 
College Composition]. However, credit is given for the first semester when taken 
alone. 

Course numbers that stand alone represent courses of one semester which are 
complete units. Course numbers separated by a comma [e.g., HIST 154, 155. 
American History and Institutions] represent complete units, either one of which 
is counted for graduation without reference to sequence. 

Designation in brackets following course titles, [e.g., MATH 103. Survey of 
Mathematics (A-2)1 indicates the General Education area and sub-area that the 
class fulfills. Classes designated with a *(W)* are writing classes for General 
Education credit. 

Students may earn credit for a cross-listed course from only one department 
[e.g. HIST 356 and SOCI 356]. 

COGNATE COURSES 

Required courses related to the major which are not a part of the major are 
called cognate courses [e.g., students majoring in Nursing are required to take 
Microbiology as a cognate course].

Allied Health 



Chair: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Faculty: Joyce Azevedo, David Ekkens, Ann Foster, John Perumal, Keith Snyder 

Adjunct Faculty: Jon Lechler 

Medical Technology: Marcia Kilsby, Albert McMullen, R. A. Ramkissoon, Patricia 

Rogers, Richard Show, Clifford Sutherland 

The Allied Health Professions are rapidly growing areas of specialization within 
the health care industry. Job openings are plentiful and pay scales are comparable 
to other professionals in health care. The department offers a B.S. degree in 
Medical Technology and A.S. degrees in a number of Allied Health fields (listed 
on pages 51-52). 

ASSESSMENT 

The Allied Health Department at Southern Adventist University is organized to 
coordinate the advising of students who require prerequisite courses for entrance 
into a variety of clinical programs in the medical, dental, and health professions. 
The programs in this department vary extensively depending on the particular 
health career and the requirements of the specific schools which offer the clinical 
programs. Southern Adventist University continually monitors the requirements of 
these clinical programs and modifies its preprofessional curricula to meet the 
changes when they are made. Continual assessment is made essentially by the 
advisers in the department who measure their effectiveness by their success in 
structuring programs to meet individual student needs and to meet requirements 
of the professional school the student will be transferring to. The entrance rate of 
students into professional programs is also used to assess adequacy of class 
offerings and program requirements. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN MEDICAL TECHNOLOGY 
Adviser: Ann Foster 

The Bachelor of Science degree with a major in medical technology consists of 
three years of prescribed study at Southern Adventist University and a 12- to 
13-month senior year in a hospital-based medical technology program accredited 
by the Committee on Allied Health Education and Accreditation (CAHEA) of the 
American Medical Association. The hospital programs affiliated with Southern 
Adventist University are Florida Hospital Medical Center and Andrews University. 
Internship in other CAHEA-accredited programs requires prior university approval. 

The Medical Technology degree qualifies a person to take a number of national 
certifying examinations, including those offered by the Board of Registry of the 
American Society of Clinical Pathologists (ASCP) and the National Accrediting 
Agency for Clinical Laboratory Sciences (NAACLS). Certified laboratory 
professionals work in hospitals, clinics, physicians* offices, public health agencies, 
private laboratories, pharmaceutical firms, and research institutions. 

The curriculum prescribed by Southern Adventist University is designed to meet 
the requirements of the University and of CAHEA. Hospitals with clinical programs 
may have additional requirements. Students should consult the brochures or 
advisers of the specific hospitals for those requirements. 



50 Allied Health 



Occasionally pre-dental students, pre-medical students, and graduating seniors 
in biology or chemistry may wish to become certified Medical Technologists. This 
is possible if the student plans courses to fulfill the requirements of the University 
and the hospital program. 

During the fall semester of the third year, students must apply for admission to 
an approved clinical program. Acceptance of the individual student to the senior 
year program is determined by the institution offering the clinical program. To be 
eligible for admission, a student must complete all of the University course 
requirements prior to beginning the clinical year. The overall grade point average 
must be acceptable to the University for graduation. Most clinical programs do 
not accept students with less than a 2.75 cumulative average on a 4.0 system. 
Although clinical acceptances are granted during the junior year, they are 
conditional, pending satisfactory completion of the stated admission criteria. 

Written information about the affiliated clinical programs fa available through 
the University medical technology adviser. Acceptance criteriaxpre-cljnical course 
requirements, application procedures, tuition for the senior year/and program 
formats may vary at each approved clinical program. 

• MAJOR 2

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN ALLIED HEALTH 

The Associate of Science degree in Allied Health Professions prepares the 
student for admission to professional programs at Loma Linda University, Andrews 
University, or other universities. Admission to any professional school is 
dependent on meeting the GPA and prerequisite requirements of the individual 
school. Students should consult the bulletin of the school of their choice to 
ascertain the entrance requirements. 

Students who plan to graduate from Southern Adventist University with an 
Associate Degree in Allied Health must meet the A.S. degree general education 
requirements of SAU as well as the entrance requirements of the clinical program 
to which they will be applying. 

Applications for transfer to the junior year of colleges offering Allied Health 
programs must be made early in the second semester of the final year at Southern 
Adventist University. The lowest acceptable grade for courses to be transferred is 
C. A minimum grade point average of 2.00 is required for the Associate of Science 
degree at Southern Adventist University, but grade point averages between 3.00 
and 3.50 are considered minimal for entrance to the junior year of most clinical 
Allied Health programs. Some programs require the Allied Health Professions 
Admissions Test (AHPAT). 



52 Allied Health 



The major Allied health areas in which a two year Associate Degree may be 
earned at Southern Adventist University are: 
pre-Cytotechnology pre-Physical Therapy 

pre-Dental Hygiene pre-Physician Assistant 

pre-Nutrition and Dietetics pre-Speech Language Pathology 

pre-Occupational Therapy & Audiology 

pre-Surgical Physician Assistant

PRE-CYTOTECHNOLOGY 

Cytotechnologists are specially trained laboratory technologists who work with 
pathologists to detect changes in body cells that may be important in the early diagnosis 
of cancer and other diseases. Using special techniques, cytotechnologists prepare 
cellular samples for study under the microscope and assist in the diagnosis of disease 
by examination of the samples. Using the findings of cytotechnologists, a physician is 
then able, in many instances, to diagnose cancer and other diseases even before they 
can be detected by other methods. Most cytotechnologists work in hospitals or in 
private laboratories, while some prefer to work on research projects or to teach.

PRE-DENTAL HYGIENE 

Dental hygienists provide preventative dental care and encourage patients to develop 
good oral hygiene skills. In addition to carrying out clinical responsibilities such as 
cleaning and scaling teeth, hygienists help patients develop and maintain good oral 
health by explaining the relationship between diet and oral health. Although most 
hygienists work with individual patients, some develop and promote community dental 
health programs. In addition to career opportunities within dental offices, dental 
hygienists apply their skills and knowledge in other career activities including office 
management, business administration, dental hygiene education, research and 
marketing of dental related equipment and materials.

PRE-NUTRITION AND DIETETICS 

Dietitians and nutritionists use their knowledge of the principles of nutrition to help 
people develop healthy eating habits. Dietitians may be involved in setting up and 
supervising food service systems for institutions such as hospitals, prisons, and schools; 
and promote sound eating habits through education and research. Clinical dietitians 
provide nutritional services for patients in hospitals, nursing homes, clinics, or doctors' 
offices. Community dietitians counsel individuals and groups on nutritional practices 
designed to prevent disease and promote good health. Management dietitians are 
responsible for large scale meal planning and preparation in such places as hospitals, 
nursing homes, company cafeterias, and schools.

PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY 

Physical therapists work to improve the mobility, relieve the pain, and prevent or 
limit the permanent disability of patients suffering from injuries or disease. Their 
patients include accident victims or handicapped individuals with such conditions as 
nerve injuries, amputations, low back pain, arthritis, and heart disease. Some physical 
therapists treat a wide variety of problems and others specialize in such areas as 
pediatrics, orthopedics, and sports physical therapy. The working environment of 
physical therapists varies from specially equipped facilities in hospitals or clinics to 
schools, private offices, and private homes. 

Requirements for entrance to the junior year of a Physical Therapy course will 
depend on the college or university selected. Requirements for Andrews University and 
Loma Linda University are outlined below. Students who complete one of these

PRE-PHYSICIAIM ASSISTANT 

Physician assistants are trained to perform many of the essential tasks involved in 
patient care. They take medical histories, perform physical evaluations, order laboratory 
tests, make preliminary diagnoses, prescribe appropriate treatments, and recommend 
medications and drug therapies. They also treat minor problems such as lacerations, 
abrasions, and burns. Physician assistants work in a variety of practice settings and 
specialty areas. The most important practice setting is in a physician's office. They also 
work at hospitals and clinics. Specialties using PA's are family practice, internal 
medicine, general and thoracic surgery, emergency medicine, pediatrics, and various 
medical sub-specialties. 

Adviser: Stephen Nyirady 

The entrance requirements to physician assistant clinical programs vary considerably 
from school to school. College credit requirements range from one year of college 
level courses to a baccalaureate degree. Prior patient care requirements also range 
from being recommended through two years of direct clinical work experience. 

Currently, a number of physician assistant programs are in a state of transition. 
Entrance requirements for some schools are shifting from one or two-years of college 
courses to requiring a baccalaureate degree. Southern Adventist University can 
structure a course of study to meet the requirements of the specific clinical program to 
which a student wishes to apply. Students preparing for a career as a Physician 
Assistant are encouraged to obtain a bachelor's degree before applying to a clinical 
program. 

Additional information on physician assistant programs can be obtained from the 
University's pre-physician assistant advisor or by contacting the schools that offer the 
clinical programs. 



Allied Health 59 



PRE-SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY & AUDIOLOGY 

Speech language pathologists identify, assess, and treat persons with speech and 
language disorders while audiologists assess and treat hearing impaired individuals. 
Because both occupations are concerned with communication, individuals competent 
in one area must be familiar with the other. The duties of speech language pathologists 
and audiologists vary. Most, however, provide direct clinical services to individuals 
with communication disorders. In speech, language, and hearing clinics they may 
independently develop and implement a treatment program. In private medical centers 
and other facilities, they may be part of a team that develops and executes a treatment 
plan. In schools they may help administrators develop individual or group programs, 
counsel parents on prevention of hearing disorders, and assist teachers with classroom 
activities.

Chair: Wayne Hazen 
Faculty: Ezequiel Rocha 

Basic to the philosophy of the Department of Art is the provision for the quality 
of environment most conducive to spiritual, aesthetic, and technical growth. The 
instructors desire to help all students become aware of their options in the field of 
art and to prepare them systematically to meet the needs of their respective 
choices, whether they are oriented commercially or aesthetically. 

ASSESSMENT 

Students majoring in Art or Art-Computer Graphic Design will keep a portfolio 
of their work from their freshman year onward. The art faculty will evaluate the 
portfolio at the end of the sophomore and senior years. The evaluation, which is 
designed to aid the department in student advisement and in determining the 
effectiveness of its teaching and course offerings, will not affect graduation.

Biology 



Chair: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Faculty: Joyce Azevedo, David Ekkens, Ann Foster, John Perumal, 

Keith Snyder 
Adjunct Faculty: Edgar Grundset 
Summer Faculty: Laura Nyirady 
Adjunct Research Faculty: John Henson, Scott Hodges 






The study of Biology constitutes one of the most exciting and important fields 
of scientific investigation, since it provides a better understanding of ourselves and 
the living things around us. Even the casual observer of Biology who pauses long 
enough to take a course may derive a lifetime of pleasure and fulfillment from a 
hobby such as bird watching, shell collecting, or wild flower photography. 

More importantly, a major in Biology is an excellent starting point for numerous 
careers which are both rewarding and challenging. With a B.S. degree in Biology, 
one may pursue graduate study leading to research in the basic sciences (anatomy, 
physiology, ecology, microbiology, cytology, etc.), teaching at the college or 
graduate level, or employment in industry or government. The B.A. degree is the 
degree of choice in preparation for high-school teaching, medicine, dentistry, 
optometry, careers in wildlife, forestry or zoo management, health education, 
public health, biostatistics, epidemiology, and environmental health, to name a 
few. 

The Biology Department makes available a number of experiences, both 
curricular and extracurricular, to enrich its students' academic programs. Being 
within relatively easy access to a number of major biome types, it offers courses 
which include field experiences in such places as the Bahamas, Belize, Smoky 
Mountains, and the Okefenokee Swamp. The Tennessee Aquarium provides 
additional learning resources. The department is also affiliated with a biological 
field station (see page 22). 

Extracurricular opportunities include membership in the Beta Beta Beta national 
biological honor society, a yearly lecture series on natural history and research 
topics (see page 21), as well as a premedical preceptorship program (see page 
242). 

ASSESSMENT 

In order to help evaluate its teaching effectiveness and the academic 
achievements of its graduates, all seniors are required to pass the ETS Major Field 
Achievement Test in Biology during their final semester. The results of these exams 
are used by the department staff to evaluate class offerings as well as program 
requirements.

School of Computing 



Dean: Timothy D. Korson 

Associate Dean: Jared Bruckner 

Faculty: Dalton Athey, John Durichek, Rick Halterman, Bradley Hyde, 

Merritt MacLafferty, Brian Willard 
Software Technology Center Director: Timothy D. Korson 
Adjunct Faculty: John Beckett, Judy DeLay, Rodney Dixon, Clifford Haas, 

Mark Rice, Clifford Williams 

Computer Science deals with the design and programming of electronic digital 
computers. In today's society, it is rare that the average person goes through a day 
without using a computer in some way. Computers are used on Wall Street and 
at NASA, in cars, microwave ovens, VCR's, TV's and even washing machines. 
Almost everyone who writes now uses a word processor and even grade-school 
students are being taught computer usage. 

With the growing use of computers has come a growing shortage of computer 
professionals. While some companies must hire untrained applicants, most are 
seeking employees with the training, skill, and knowledge of a graduate in 
Computer Science. Graduates from a computer science program find jobs in 
industry, health care, financial institutions, education, and research. 

The student should choose his area of interest and select courses from 
computer science and other fields that will fit well with his intended career. Some 
job titles are: Programmer, Systems Programmer, Systems Analyst, Team Leader, 
Data Base Administrator, Data Processing Manager, Software Engineer, 
Applications Engineer, Training Specialist, and Technical Writer. 

ADMISSIONS 

Admission to the School of Computing is required before graduation with a 
major offered by the School of Computing. (Computer Information Systems 
Majors must also be accepted to the School of Business and Management) 
Declaration as a major is not the equivalent of acceptance to the School of 
Computing. Minimum requirements for admission to the School of Computing 
are: 

1 . Acceptance to Southern Adventist University. 

2. Complete general education: ENGL 101 and 102, and MATH 120 or 
equivalent. 

3. Completion of 6 hours of computer courses required in the major with a grade 
of *C # or better. 

4. Earned overall G PA of 2.50 or better. 

Students pursuing a major offered by the School of Computing should apply for 
admission during the sophomore year (24-54 hours). Transfer students will be 
considered for admission after completing 6 hours of major courses in residence. 

SCHOOL OF COMPUTING PROBATION 

If a student's GPA falls below 2.25 in either the major or overall, the student 
will be placed on School of Computing probation. If the GPA does not improve 
to 2.25 by the end of one semester on probation, the student must repeat courses 
in an effort to increase the GPA. The faculty of the School of Computing must 
approve each probation student's course load before the student may register. 



School of Computing 95 



ASSESSMENT 

In the spring of the senior year all B.A., B.S., and B.B.A. students in computer 
science will be required to take a written two-hour exam. The results of this exam 
are used by the School's staff to evaluate class offerings as well as program 
requirements. 

SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY CENTER 

The Software Technology Center (STC) is the research center of the School of 
Computing. The STC is sponsored in part by the Consortium for the Management 
of Emerging Software Technology (Comsoft). Comsoft is funded by major 
corporations such as AT&T, IBM, Spring, Allstate, and NBC. Comsoft also 
sponsors research centers at Clemson University and Georgia State University. 
The comsoft administrative offices are located in the STC. 

Object-oriented software technology is an important emerging discipline for 
development of complex software systems. The STC staff work closely with the 
research and development staffs of major corporations utilizing object-oriented 
technology. 

The STC provides opportunities for students and faculty to work together 
researching emerging software technologies. In addition it offers employment for 
motivated students to work on advanced software development projects with 
major corporations. 



CODE OF COMPUTER CONDUCT 
AT SOUTHERN ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY 

1 . Users must use only those computer accounts which have been authorized for 
their use. 

2. Users must use their computer accounts only for the purposes for which they 
were authorized, as arranged with the Information Services Department. 

3. Users should minimize the impact of their work on the work of other users. It 
is the responsibility of the user to leam efficient means of utilizing the computer. 

4. Users of campus computers must not make or use unauthorized copies of 
copyrighted software. Shareware may be freely copied, but students who 
continue to use it should register and pay the specified fee. Violation of 
copyright is a serious crime and penalties can be severe. 

5. Planting "virus* programs or otherwise misusing campus computers in a way 
that might destroy the work others are doing is thoughtless vandalism and will 
be dealt with as any other destructive activity on campus.

UNDERGRADUATE DEGREES IN TEACHER EDUCATION 

Philosophy and Objectives 

The School of Education and Psychology is the unit duly authorized to prepare 
teachers who meet certification requirements for public, church related, and other 
private elementary and secondary schools. 

The unit subscribes to the philosophy that man was created in the image of 
God but as a result of willful disobedience sin has marred his God-given attributes 
and divine likeness. This philosophy recognizes that the object of education is also 
the object of redemption— to restore in man the image of his maker and bring him 
back to the perfection in which he was created. Thus the work of redemption is 
also the work of education, involving the development of the whole person- 
physical, mental, spiritual, and social. 

The teacher education programs in the unit are founded upon the basic 
assumption that there is a body of information, research, and practice that make 
up the knowledge base for the teaching profession and that acquisition of this 
knowledge is a significant part of the teachers preparation. The unit further 
confirms the belief that a teacher should be a good example in health, intellect, 
and character. This program of teacher education is guided by the following 
statement of mission: 

Statement of Mission ' 

The mission of the School of Education a|ld Psychology at Southern Adventist 
University is to prepare, primarily for the Seventlvday Adventist school system, 
professional educators at both undergraduate and graduate levels who can 
function effectively in a culturally pluralistic society and who are dedicated to 
assisting students in reaching their maximum potential in service to God and man. 
Additionally, it is the mission of the School of Education and Psychology to 
prepare psychology students for graduate school to become Christian counselors 
and psychologists who are professionally equipped to deal ethically and with 
empathy and love to those who need healing of mind and soul. 

Objectives of the Teacher Education Program 

The teacher education program at Southern Adventist University is designed 
to help the teacher candidate develop personal values and acquire the knowledge, 
skills, and competencies needed to function effectively in the teacher's role as a

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

Admission to Southern Adventist University does not automatically enroll the 
student into teacher education . There are three stages that students must go 
through to be fully accepted in the teacher education program. 
A. Initial Admission to the Teacher Education Program 

Each student accepted at Southern Adventist University who indicated that 
teaching is his/her professional objective is assigned an educational program 
adviser by the Dean of the School of Education and Psychology in 
cooperation with the advisement coordinator in the Records Office. The 
advisers assist in planning a student's academic program each year and guide 
their advisees through the stages of the Teacher Education Program. Advisers 
and advisees should work closely to follow the professional sequence of 
courses. Students assume responsibility for making necessary applications, 
meeting the requirements, and other relevant deadlines. 

The first semester of the sophomore year, but not later than the second 
semester of the sophomore year, the student should file a formal application 
for initial admission to the Teacher Education Program. Application forms 
may be obtained from the School secretary in Summerour Hall. Transfer 
students wishing to enter the Teacher Education Program should file an 
application after the first year in residence. Upon application, a file is set up 
for each applicant containing relevant information to the student's candidacy. 
To be initially admitted, all the following criteria must be met: 

1 . Be in residence at the University. 

2. Submit an autobiography in your own handwriting 
containing anecdotal information on why you 
decided to pursue a career in teaching. 

3. Have an overall grade point average of 2.50.

the fiftieth (50th) percentile is received in the Nelson-Denny, 
a remedial program must be satisfactorily completed 
before the test is retaken. 






Applicants meeting the above criteria are recommended by the Education 
faculty to the Teacher Education Council. The student will be informed in writing 
as to the status of the application for admission following the action of the Teacher 
Education Council. 

B. Candidacy and Retention in Teacher Education 

After the applicant has been admitted to the Teacher Education Program, 
his/her progress will be reviewed by the Candidacy Committee, consisting 
of the adviser, a departmental/school representative, and one elementary or

application with the faculty of the School of Education and Psychology for 
authorization to do student teaching. Application forms may be obtained 
from the School secretary in Summerour Hall. A late application may delay 
the student teaching experience. Student teaching is regarded as the 
culminating experience of the Teacher Education Program. 



School of Education and Psychology 111 



The following criteria are considered for each applicant: 

1. Completion of all professional education courses 

2. Cumulative GPA of 2.50 

Major Studies GPA of 2.50 
Professional Education GPA of 2.50 

3. Evidence of good physical and mental health 

4. Adherence to standards and objectives of Southern Adventist 
University and the Teacher Education Council 

5. Formal application for student teaching at least one 
semester in advance 

6. Proof of current certification in First Aid/CPR 

7. Recommended by the Education faculty 

8. Approval of the Teacher Education Council 

Teacher candidates who meet the above criteria are recommended by the 
Education and Psychology faculty to the Teacher Education Council. Candidates 
are informed in writing as to the status of their application following the action of 
the Teacher Education Council. 

Advisement 

The major goal of the advisement process is to orient the teacher candidate 
with the total teacher education program, with major emphasis on its three 
components, namely, general education, professional education, and specialty 
studies. This is accomplished by the academic adviser as s/he interacts with his/her 
advisees during advisement sessions. 

APPEAL PROCEDURES 

Criteria and standards for admission to teacher education are explicit, but allow 
for second chance attempts. Courses may be repeated to raise GPA or students 
may follow the Grievance Procedures found under Academic Policies (page 41). 
Also, students who do not meet all the criteria required to do Student Teaching 
may appeal to the Appeals Committee. The applicant who has to take this 
alternative route will be evaluated on the bases of eminence and outstanding 
strengths in several other criteria rather than minimal meeting of those criteria. The 
Appeals Committee makes recommendation to the Teacher Education Council 
who determines the final action. Any applicant who determines to follow this 
alternative policy must seek counsel from the Dean of the School of Education and 
Psychology. 

TEACHER LICENSURE 

Licensure and certification are synonymous terms for the process of granting 
legal authorization to teach in the public or private elementary or secondary 
schools of a state or of the Seventh-day Adventist Church based on meeting 
predetermined qualifications. Certification has been established to give 
professional status to qualified teachers and to assure school boards and parents 
that the teacher is well prepared. 

WHO CAN OBTAIN CERTIFICATION? 

Every student who successfully completes the requirements for teaching in the 
elementary or secondary school and graduates from Southern Adventist University 
will receive recommendation for certification based upon the following criteria: 



112 School of Education and Psychology 



A. Successful completion of student teaching assignments 

B. Satisfactory completion of all credential requirements 
C Recommendation of major departments/schools 

D. Satisfactory scores on the Core Battery and appropriate specialty area(s) of the 
PRAXIS National Teacher Examinations 

Certification is not automatic. The eligible candidate must make the necessary 
application to the appropriate union conference for denominational certification 
and to the specific state department of education where the candidate expects to 
teach. Information regarding certification is available through the Southern 
Adventist University certification officer. Since teacher certification regulations are 
always in the process of change, graduating teacher education candidates are 
urged to make their applications for certification immediately. If the candidate 
does not make application within two years for denominational certification, or 
within three years for Tennessee State certification, s/he will have to take 
additional courses before certification can be issued. 

WHAT CERTIFICATES MAY BE OBTAINED? 

A. Teacher's Certificate (Tennessee) 

A certificate is issued on the basis of a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree 
with a major in at least one subject teaching field and the completion of 
an approved teacher education program. Satisfactory scores on the Core 
Battery and relevant specialty area(s) of the PRAXIS National Teacher 
Examinations must be obtained. 

B. Basic Certificate (SDA denominational) 

Required by the Department of Education of the North American Division 
of Seventh-day Adventists. This three-year denominational certificate is 
issued on the basis of completing the following courses in addition to the 
above requirements: 

RELT 255 Christian Beliefs 3 hours 

RELT 138 Adventist Heritage 3 hours 

RELB Biblical Studies 3 hours 

REL Upper division elective 3 hours 

HLED 173 Health and Life 2 hours 

REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTIFICATION 

Candidates for state certification must complete the appropriate teacher 
preparation curriculum. This consists of three components: general education, 
professional education, and major studies. 

A. General Education: 

This component represents that portion of the total teacher education 
program designed to foster the development of those competencies that 
are basic to all life's responsibilities and provide intellectual foundation 
in the liberal arts. Students pursuing a teacher education curriculum 
must work closely with their advisers for guidance in the selection of 
general education courses that are appropriate to their individual needs. 
Relevant courses are listed in this catalog under the seven main areas of 
the general education requirements, pages 26-30. 



School of Education and Psychology 113

TOTAL 28 hours 

Major Studies: 

Major studies requirements: Preparation for teaching in the elementary 
school requires a B.A. in Psychology leading to licensure K-8, B.A. in 
Social Science leading to licensure 1-8, or a B.S. in Science and Math 
Studies leading to licensure 1-8. See listings of course sequences on pages 
114-117 of this bulletin. 

The following departments/schools offer majors that can be combined 
with professional education courses resulting in licensure to teach: 



Biology 


History 


Chemistry 


Mathematics 


Education & Psychology 


Music 


English 


Physics 


Health/Physical Education 


Religion 



Students are to complete the degree requirements as specified by their 
chosen major plus the professional education courses as listed under B 
above. 

D. Miscellaneous Information Relative to Teacher Training: 

1 . Because of time commitments during the student teaching experience, 
no additional courses may be taken. The Education faculty will 
endeavor to provide the opportunity for student teachers to teach in 
off-campus student teaching centers. It is expected that any student 
entering student teaching will have completed all other courses. 

2. Correspondence credit will be accepted to the extent of one-fourth of 
the credit required for the certificate provided that no more than four 
semester hours in education are applied on the professional education 
requirement. If personal circumstances demand a correspondence 



114 School of Education and Psychology 



course, a petition must be filed with the School of Education and 
Psychology and its approval obtained before registering for the course. 
The course must be completed and the grade filed in the Records 
Office before student teaching is begun. 

3. A major is not always required for additional endorsements. A minor 
may be acceptable as a second field for SDA certification. 

4. Students should contact the School of Education and Psychology for 
information on specific requirements in the area(s) of endorsement 
sought. 

5. The Teacher Education Program at Southern Adventist University is 
being constantly refined to meet any and all North American Division 
and/or State of Tennessee's changing and mandated licensure 
requirements for teacher preparation. As a result, changes may occur 
in the course offering and in the program requirements for students 
preparing to become teachers. 

Teacher education students must meet any and all such additional 
requirements mandated by NAD or the State of Tennessee, even 
though such changes may not be listed in the Teacher Education 
programs in the particular Catalog under which the student entered, 
and students should stay in contact with the School of Education and 
Psychology to be aware of any changes that may affect them.

ASSESSMENT OF EDUCATION MAJORS 

Assessment of senior Education majors takes place during their full semester 
of student teaching. It involves continuous monitoring of the students classroom 
performance in both verbal and written feedback. Senior assessment consists of 
two phases. 

Phase One, Formative Evaluation, consists of ongoing monitoring and 
feedback. The cooperating teacher conducts informal conferences as well as a one- 
hour weekly formal conference providing anecdotal records. The Southern 
Adventist University Formative Evaluation Form is completed by the University 
supervisor and the cooperating teacher. 

Phase Two, Summative Evaluation, is completed by both the cooperating 
teacher and the University supervisor. The instrument used to record the student's 
skills and behaviors is the Southern Adventist University Summative Evaluation 
Form . The student teacher is also evaluated by his/her students when they 
complete the Pupil Evaluation of the Student Teacher . A self-evaluation is 
completed by the student through a video-taped lesson. The student and the 
University supervisor critique his/her videotaped performance. 

The final letter grade for the student's performance is decided by the Education 
Faculty. Failure to complete student teaching with a satisfactory grade of C or 
above results in students being reassigned for an additional practicum. 

Graduate follow-up is carried out through the Southern Adventist University 
Teacher Education Evaluation instrument completed by the first-year teacher. The 
Supervisor Evaluation of Southern Adventist University Graduates is completed by 
the student's employer. Feedback from these instruments is used by the School of 
Education and Psychology staff to make necessary program changes. 

In addition to the above, education students obtaining a psychology degree 
must fulfill the assessment procedures listed on page 107.

Engineering Studies 



Engineering Studies Committee: 

Henry Kuhlman (Chair), John Durichek 

Southern Adventist University offers the first two years of a baccalaureate 
degree in engineering. Upon completing the two-year engineering studies 
program, students transfer to the Walla Walla College School of Engineering, with 
which Southern Adventist University is affiliated, for the final two years. Southern 
Adventist University awards an Associate of Science degree in Engineering Studies. 
Walla Walla College, located in Washington State, awards a Bachelor of Science 
in Engineering degree with concentrations in civil, electrical, and mechanical 
engineering and a pre-professional Bachelor of Science degree in bioengineering. 

The WWC School of Engineering offers a high quality program that is fully 
accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology— the only 
nationally recognized organization which accredits engineering programs. It has 
an enrollment of approximately 250 students, many of whom are transfer students 
from affiliated Seventh-day Adventist colleges or universities. 

The Southern Adventist University affiliation with Walla Walla College makes 
the transition to the final two years of the baccalaureate engineering program 
essentially the same as if the first two years were taken there. Even though transfer 
to Walla Walla College is simpler than to a non-affiliated school, the Southern 
Adventist University engineering studies program is compatible with baccalaureate 
engineering programs of many colleges and universities. 

ASSESSMENT 

The engineering studies program is designed to parallel the first two years of 
the baccalaureate engineering degree at Walla Walla College. It is regularly 
assessed by means of one or two campus visits each year by engineering faculty 
from their College of Engineering.

The English Department offers two categories of classes that view man's search 
for truth and its most convincing expression through a Christian perspective. 
Language courses aid students in developing ease, confidence, and competence 
in the art of effective communication and in acquiring knowledge of the science 
of language; literature courses develop the ability to discern and appreciate the 
best literary works. 

Students majoring or minoring in English must meet the specific requirements 
of the English Department (below) and the General Education program (pages 26- 
30). For the English major, intermediate foreign language is required. College 
Composition does not count toward an English major or minor, but students 
majoring or minoring in English must earn a grade of C or higher in College 
Composition. English majors will demonstrate computer competence by 
completing an E-mail component in ENGL 445 and by using word processing to 
complete the 3-hour written assessment exam. 

ASSESSMENT 

As part of a departmental assessment process, senior English majors take a 
written exam and do a written evaluation of departmental programs. Results 
provide information used to improve departmental programs; graduation eligibility 
is not affected. Majors are informed about the purpose and nature of these 
assessment activities when they enter the English program.

History 



Chair: Benjamin McArthur 

Faculty: Mark Peach, Dennis Pettibone 



History is the study of the human experience. It investigates mankind's ideas, 
institutions, and activities. In pursuing this investigation, history courses at 
Southern Adventist University emphasize the Christian view of humanity. This 
perspective recognizes both the potential and the limitation of human endeavor 
and thereby permits a broader comprehension of the past and a greater hope for 
the future. 

Approval of study programs for history majors. Departmental approval is 
necessary for all programs. A student majoring in history must plan his/her entire 
study program with a member of the history faculty. Approval is then considered 
on an individual basis and is granted on the following conditions: 

1. Compliance with graduation requirements as explained elsewhere in the 
CATALOG. 

2. Fulfillment of the professional and individual needs of the student. 

3. Embodiment of academic balance and continuity. 

4. Completion of senior year assessment. 

ASSESSMENT 

Assessment of seniors consists of two parts. First, in the spring semester of their 
senior year students will take the ETS Major Field Achievement Test in history. 
Second, at the beginning of the fall semester seniors will take a departmental 
exam. Preparation for this exam will constitute a one-hour independent study 
course involving: 1) reading a selected few classics of historical literature; 2) 
reviewing one's history course work utilizing several thematic questions provided 
by the history faculty. The subsequent examination will be in the form of a one- 
hour interview of the candidate by the history faculty. This will be based on the 
above mentioned materials and also on the student's portfolio of major papers 
accumulated during his/her history course work. The oral examination is graded 
on an Honors, Pass, or Fail basis. A failure requires further preparation by the 
student and another interview before graduation.

Upper-division history classes seek to improve skills of writing and speech. All 
such classes require analytical writing as part of the course work. Additionally, 
many classes involve discussion and oral class reports as partial basis for the 
student's grade, most notably HIST 499, Research Methods in History, which 
requires an extended formal presentation of student research. 

History majors must display the ability to apply computer usage to their 
discipline in two ways: first, a facility with word processing; and second, by a 
facility in accessing information via the Internet.

Minor—Political Economy (18 Hours) 

Combines an interdisciplinary selection of courses helpful for law school 
preparation. For a further description of this pre-law preparation program, see page 
242. 

Minor—Political Science (18 Hours) 

This minor provides opportunity for students to gain practical experience in 
governmental work as part of an academic program. There are two types of 
internships for the minor: a Washington D.C. internship supervised by Columbia 
Union College; and a Tennessee State legislative internship in Nashville. Either 
internship will give intensive exposure to state or federal government or public 
advocacy work. There are also opportunities to work in a religious advocacy 
organization in the nation's capital with the CUC program. 

The Political Science minor is an 18-hour program, 9 or 12 hours of which 
(depending on whether a summer or semester-long internship was taken) would 
consist of the internship credit. The balance of the minor would require: 

1. PLSC 254 American Government 

2. 3 to 6 hours of other PLSC courses 

For more details on the program, see the History Department chair. 

History as a preprofessional degree: A student majoring in history who plans 
to enter a professional school in an area such as medicine or law must present a 
balanced program of general education classes and electives that will support the 
professional objectives. 

History as a preparation for teaching: A student majoring in history who plans 
to prepare for secondary teacher certification must include six hours upper 
division Political Science in the major and must also take PLSC 224, 254; and 
GEOG 204. It is strongly recommended that the student also earn teaching 
credentials in a field outside of history. No specific supporting field is required but 
art, behavioral science, business, English, modern languages, and religion are 
recognized as intimately related to the study of history. A student may receive 
denominational certification to teach history as a second area by completing a 
minor in history (see under Minor below). Since the entire second semester of the 
senior year is devoted to certification requirements, students earning teacher 
certification must finish all history class work before reaching the final semester. 
Students applying for teacher certification must consult with the School of 
Education and Psychology to draft a schedule of classes meeting certification 
requirements. 

Before the end of the sophomore year the student must apply to the School of 
Education and Psychology for admission to the Teacher Education Program. Before 
the end of the junior year, the student must apply to the School of Education and 
Psychology for admission to the professional semester. 

History Department tours: The Department of History regularly sponsors study 
tours to foreign countries. The purpose of these tours is to provide students and 
other participants with an enhanced understanding of history and culture through 
a combination of traditional lecture and reading with direct observation of 
historical sites. Academic activities connected with the tours require students to 
spend an amount of time equal to that expected in a regular classroom setting.

The Department of Journalism and Communication provides an educational 
environment in which future leaders in journalism, public relations and related 
areas can acquire the enduring ethical concepts, the intellectual discipline and the 
professional abilities necessary to the mastery and management of a wide range 
of writing, editing and other journalistic and public relations skills and techniques. 

The department offers the Bachelor of Arts Degree with majors in Journalism 
(News Editorial), Broadcast Journalism, and Public Relations, a Bachelor of Science 
Degree with various emphases, and an Associate of Science Degree in Media 
Technology. Minors are also available in each of these areas as well as Advertising, 
Visual Communication, and Media Sales. 

The Journalism (News Editorial) major prepares students for careers as reporters, 
writers and editors for daily and weekly newspapers, magazines, wire services, 
publishing houses and for the vast array of publications that serve the church, 
business, industry, governmental agencies, the medical field, colleges and 
universities and other non-profit organizations. 



152 Journalism and Communication 



Students enrolling in the Broadcast Journalism major receive preparation for 
careers in commercial and non-commercial radio and television as reporters, 
producers, videographers and managers. 

Public Relations majors are prepared for careers in business, industry, 
government, the church, colleges, universities, hospitals and other medical 
institutions, and in a wide range of organizations. 

Students graduating with the Bachelor of Science in Mass Communication have 
a broad communication education with a selected specialty that prepares them for 
a large variety of communication jobs in the church, in corporations and also in 
non-profit organizations. 

All of the department's majors prepare students for entry into graduate schools 
nationwide. 

The associate degree in Media Technology prepares the student for entry level 
positions in media production and operation or desktop publishing. 

The Advertising minor combined with such majors as Public Relations prepares 
students for careers in advertising copywriting, advertising design (when coupled 
with a second minor in Art), and creative directing. 

The Media Sales minor combined with a Broadcast major prepares the student 
for a job as account executive, promotion director or a media buyer as well as in 
station promotion. By adding the Media Sales minor, a student multiples job 
opportunities in the field of Broadcasting. 

Members of the faculty will advise each student in planning a study program 
that is supportive of individual career goals, that meets degree requirements of the 
Department of Journalism and Communication, including the intermediate level 
of a foreign language, and fulfills General Education requirements. 

INTERNSHIPS AND ON-THE-JOB TRAINING 

Because of the strong relationships which the department has developed with 
the Chattanooga area mass media, students in journalism, broadcast and public 
relations have many opportunities to meet and work with professionals in 
television and radio news, in public relations, advertising and on daily and weekly 
newspapers. 

Internships: Helping students locate internships on newspapers, in publishing 
houses, in public relations and fund development departments, in advertising 
agencies, and in radio and television newsrooms is a vital part of the education 
program provided by the department. 

An Advisory Council and a Consulting Board advise the department in 
providing internships that give on-the-job experience. The department also 
participates in the General Conference internship program in which students work 
in various denominational institutions. The University radio station, WSMC 
FM90.5 and other media outlets provide learning opportunities for students in a 
number of courses. 

Campus Publications: Students can gain valuable experience as writers, editors 
and producers by working on Student Association publications such as Southern 
Accent, the campus newspaper; Southern Memories, the yearbook; and Strawberry 
Festival, the annual pictorial review of the year. 

ASSESSMENT 

To make satisfactory progress toward preparation for the job market, students 
majoring in the department will be expected to attend departmental assemblies 



JoURNAUSM AND COMMUNICATION 153 



and other professional meetings sponsored by the department. 

Students should demonstrate their growing professionalism through 
involvement in the operation of WSMC FM90.5; in the publication of the Southern 
Accent, Southern Memories, or some other publication; or in communication 
activities for a campus, church, or community organization. 

Participation in the departmental Communication Club and the Southern 
Society of Adventist Communicators as well as student membership in a national 
professional organization such as the Society of Professional Journalists, the 
International Association of Business Communicators, or the Public Relations 
Student Society of America are also evidences of professional commitment. 

Departmental files for each student majoring in the department serve as a source 
of information for teachers asked to provide recommendations for students seeking 
practicums, internships, or job positions. 

Students in the department will be given a writing skills test when they enter the 
department. On the basis of the results, advisers will recommend any needed 
remediation, which students must complete before registering for other writing 
courses offered by the department. 

Departmental effectiveness will be assessed by combining the results of the 
cumulative evaluations, student evaluations of courses, questionnaires completed 
by supervisors of interns, alumni, and workshop attendees. An ongoing analysis 
of outlines of courses required for majors is made by the faculty to determine that 
the curriculum meets the objectives of the department and the standards of the 
Accrediting Council of Education in Journalism and Mass Communication.

Mathematics 



Chair: Arthur Richert 

Faculty: Lawrence Hanson, Robert Moore 



Throughout recorded history mathematics and mathematical thinking have 
influenced man's culture to an extent that even many well-educated people fail to 
appreciate. The Elements of Euclid, the invention of a place-value numeration 
system, the invention of the calculus, the development of statistical inference, and 
more recently the development of computers, to name just a few, are 
mathematical contributions to civilization which have significantly affected the 
philosophies, commerce, science, and technology of mankind. 

The Mathematics Department seeks to transmit this mathematical heritage to 
the students of Southern Adventist University by (1) introducing students to 
mathematical concepts and techniques and the disciplined, logical thinking 
required to successfully apply them to a variety of problem-solving experiences, 
(2) providing a stage of the formal education of professional mathematicians, (3) 
educating teachers of mathematics, and (4) providing appropriate courses for users 
of mathematics. 

ASSESSMENT 

All mathematics majors are required to take the Educational Testing Service 
Major Field Achievement Test in mathematics during the spring semester of their 
senior year. All actuarial studies majors are required to take the Society of 
Actuaries Course 100 examination. The results of these examinations are used in 
ongoing review of the departmental curriculum.

Modern Languages 



Chair: Helmut Ott 

Faculty: Mari-Carmen Gal lego 

Adjunct Faculty: Darwin Ayscue 






This department combines language study with overseas experiences and other 
academic courses to administer an inter-disciplinary degree in International Studies 
that will enhance students' ability to live and work in an international setting. 
Students discover French, German, and Spanish not only as living languages but 
also as reflections of the cultures and the peoples they represent. The aim is to 
provide an aesthetic and historical background and a practical linguistic skill in the 
event the student becomes an overseas traveler or worker. 

The ability to communicate with people is increasingly essential in today's 
shrinking world, and an acquaintance with a foreign culture should be part of the 
background of educated persons, particularly those with a sense of world mission. 
By introducing students to a foreign language and exposing them to another 
culture, the Department of Modem Languages helps them overcome stereotypes 
and prejudices, fosters a spirit of appreciation and inclusiveness, and facilitates 
their communication and interaction with persons of a different language and 
culture. 

ASSESSMENT 

The assessment of majors in International Studies consists of three basic parts: 
First the candidates write an evaluation of the departmental program to state their 
perception of the program's effectiveness in achieving its objectives. Second, the 
candidates take a departmental exam to demonstrate their degree of success in 
achieving near native mastery of the target language in the areas of listening, 
reading, writing, and speaking. Third, the candidates take an oral examination 
focusing on their knowledge and appreciation of the culture of the peoples who 
speak the target language. A key element of this interview is the candidates' ability 
to compare and contrast the target culture with their own, and to show how they 
relate, contribute to, and enrich each other. 

FOREIGN STUDY 

Adventist Colleges Abroad Southern Adventist University is a member of the 
consortium of colleges and universities which, under the auspices of the General 
Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, supports the Adventist Colleges Abroad 
program. ACA provides an opportunity for students of French, German, or Spanish 
to achieve proficiency in the foreign language amid the added advantages of an 
authentic cultural setting. 

The language schools operated by the following institutions are affiliates of 
ACA: in Austria, Seminar Schloss Bogenhofen, Braunau; in France, Centre 
Universitaire et P6dagogique du Sal&ve, Collonges-sous-Sal£ve; in Spain, Colegio 
Adventista de Sagunto, Sagunto; and in Argentina, Universidad Adventista del

School of Music 



Dean: Marvin L. Robertson 

Faculty: J. Bruce Ashton, Brandon Beck, Julie Boyd-Penner, Orlo Gilbert, 

Judith Glass 
Adjunct Faculty: Ken Cardillo, Jan Cochrane, Charles Griffin, James Hanson, 

Elaine Janzen, 

Nora Kile, Bruce Kuist, Lynda Magee-Johnson, 

Mark Reneau, Clinton Schmitt, Gordon Stangeland 

The faculty of the School of Music believes that music is one of the arts given 
to man by his Creator to be used in the worship of God and to enhance the quality 
of man's life. In harmony with this philosophy, course work is offered which meets 
the needs of the general university student as well as music majors and minors. 

The School of Music offers two baccalaureate degrees, the Bachelor of Music 
degree in music education and the Bachelor of Science degree in music. Both 
degrees require courses in music theory and history, as well as a high level of 
achievement in a major performance area. The Bachelor of Music degree 
emphasizes the skills necessary for teaching music, with special emphasis on the 
training of teachers for the Seventh-day Adventist school system. The Bachelor of 
Science degree affords the student the opportunity to choose one of three tracks: 
(1) General, (2) Music Theory and Literature, (3) Music Performance. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Music majors must fulfill all the general admission requirements of the 
University. In addition, a prospective music major is required to take written and 
aural entrance examinations in music theory and a performance examination in 
the applied concentration. To obtain freshman standing as a music major, the 
student must qualify for MUCT 1 1 1 and MUPF 189. 

Further information regarding the entrance examinations may be obtained by 
writing the Dean of the School of Music. 

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

Functional Piano: All music majors must pass a functional piano examination 
or pass four hours of piano secondary. (The latter may not be used as part of the 
applied music requirement in the Vocal/General Endorsement for teacher 
certification.) The functional piano examination includes the playing of hymns, 
scales, triads, arpeggios, several moderately easy compositions and 
accompaniments, and the harmonization of simple folk melodies. The functional 
piano examination should be passed during the first week of the first semester in 
residence or the student must register for applied piano instruction. 

Applied Music Credit: One semester hour of credit will be given for fourteen 
half-hour lessons with a minimum of four hours of practice per lesson. Applied 
music concentration grades are assigned following a jury examination at the end 
of each semester. (See Music Lesson Fees under Financial Policies section of this 
Catalog.) 

Concert and Recital Attendance: Full-time music majors (students taking 12 or 
more credits) are required to attend, as a non-performer, six School approved 
concerts per semester, except for the student teaching semester. Attendance shall 



School of Music 1 75 



include faculty and senior recitals in the student's applied concentration area. 
Failure to meet this requirement will nullify music major status. 

Music Ensemble Participation: All music majors are required to participate in a 
music ensemble every semester in full-time residence (1 2 or more hours). During 
the student teaching semester, students are exempted from this requirement. 
Teacher certification candidates must, however, complete eight hours of 
appropriate ensembles. Appropriate ensembles are defined as follows: string 
majors, Symphony Orchestra; wind and percussion majors, Concert Band; voice 
majors, Southern Singers; keyboard majors, any of the above. Students are 
encouraged to participate in a variety of other ensembles as time permits. 

ASSESSMENT 

The School of Music has an ongoing program of student assessment. This 
program includes the following: 

1. PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS 
a. Performance Concentration: 

Music Performance Concentration (MUPF 189, 389) grades will be 
based on the student having met the following criteria: 

1. Completed at least 14 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 
lesson -one semester hour credit; one hour lesson -two semester 
hours credit; etc.) 

2. Practiced a minimum of four hours each week for each semester 
hour of credit. The student will keep a 'Daily Practice Log* for 
his/her verification of meeting this requirement. (Two semester 7 
hours of credit-eight hours of practice per week.) 

3. Studied, completed, and performed sufficient literature to warrant 
the credit hours for which the individual is registered. (The 
number, length, and/or difficulty level of the work(s) studied and 
of the work(s) prepared for performance are the basis for this 
criterion. Where appropriate, other factors such as memorization 
will be considered.) 

4. Completed the end of the semester jury audition examination and 
received a performance grade as determined by the Music Faculty 
(50%) and the Private Lesson Instructor (50%). 

Unsatisfactory performance in any item above will impact the final 
Performance Concentration grade. 

A grade of C- or lower will not count toward the Performance 
Concentration requirements. 

A grade of C or lower for two consecutive semesters will result in the 
student being dropped as a Music Major. Reinstatement can only be 
achieved by applying to the Music Faculty and successfully completing 
an audition for reinstatement in the Performance Concentration area. 
Audition for reinstatement may be requested only once. 



176 School of Music 



b. Performance Secondary: 

Music Performance Secondary (MUPF 1 29, 329) grades will be based 
on the student having met the following criteria. 

1 . Completed at least 14 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 
lesson -one semester hour credit; one hour lesson -two semester 
hours credit.) 

2. Practiced a minimum of four hours per week for each semester 
hour of credit. The student will keep a 'Daily Practice Log* for 
his/her verification of meeting this requirement. (Two semester 
hours credit-eight hours practice per week.) 

3. Studied, completed, and performed sufficient literature at the 
individual student's level to warrant the credit hours for which the 
individual is registered. 

Unsatisfactory performance in any item above will impact the final 
Performance Secondary grade. 

2. JUNIOR STANDING 

Music majors must apply for junior standing at the end of the sophomore year. 
These requirements are as follows: 

a. An overall grade point average of 2.00 for the Bachelor of Science degree and 
2.50 for the Bachelor of Music degree. 

b. A grade point average of 2.50 in all music courses, 
c Completion of the functional piano requirement. 

d. Completion of MUCT 111-112,121-122. 

e. Completion of at least four hours of credit in the student's applied music 
concentration area. 

Faculty evaluation of the application for junior standing will result in the student's 
receiving one of the following classifications: (a) Pass, Bachelor of Music; (b) Pass, 
Bachelor of Science; (c) Probation; (d) Fail, junior Standing requirements must be 
met at least two semesters before graduation. 

3. SENIOR RECITAL 

All music degree candidates will present a senior recital. The student must be 
registered for private instruction while preparing for the senior recital. A faculty 
audition of the complete program must be scheduled at least three weeks before the 
recital date. Unsatisfactory performance at this audition wilt result in a rescheduling 
of the recital date. 

Following the senior recital, the music faculty will vote to either accept the 
performance or to require all or portions of the recital to be repeated. The student 
will not be cleared for graduation until successful completion of the senior recital. 
Upon music faculty approval, the senior recital requirement may be partially fulfilled 
through a conducting or chamber music performance. 

4. SENIOR ASSESSMENT EXAMINATION 

During the senior year each graduating senior will take the nationally standardized 
Major Field Achievement Test. The results of this examination will be used to help 
determine the effectiveness of the music program and the competency level of the 
graduates.

The nursing program at Southern Adventist University is a 2 + 2 program that 
leads to a baccalaureate degree in nursing with the option to exit at the associate 
degree level. The holders of an associate degree from a state approved program in 
nursing may progress into baccalaureate level nursing. Licensed diploma graduates 
and associate degree graduates from a non-NLN accredited program will be 
evaluated on an individual basis. 

The curriculum in the lower division leads to an Associate of Science degree 
in nursing which may be completed in two academic years, plus summer courses. 
At this time the student is eligible to write state board examinations to become a 
registered nurse. 

A well-equipped learning center and a skills laboratory are provided to assist 
students in learning experiences. 

ASSOCIATE AND BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS 

The curriculum in the upper division provides the student an in-depth study in 
clinical nursing in addition to prescribed courses. Diploma graduates will be 
required to participate in validation procedures designed to evaluate their previous 
program of study. 

A new class is accepted into the associate degree program in the fall semester 
of each year with a limited number of students due to available clinical facilities 
and teachers. Students may enter the baccalaureate program in the fall and winter 
semesters. The size of the class is not limited. 

POLICIES 

Students who are admitted to Nursing are considered adequately mature to 
realize the importance of accepting personal responsibility for their learning and 
professional behavior. 

The School of Nursing Student Handbook contains the policies of the School. 
Each student contracts to abide by the regulations as outlined. The programs on 
the main campus and all extension campuses are governed by the same policies. 

Transportation for clinical appointments is not provided for the students. 
Students will be expected to provide their own transportation or make 
arrangements to share this expense with fellow students in the same course. 

Because regular tuition charges and fees cannot cover the total cost of nursing 
education, an additional "Nursing Education Fee* is charged each semester to 
help offset the costs (see Special Fees and Charges under Financial Policies section 
of this Catalog). 

The Tennessee State Board of Nursing and other State Boards reserve the right 
to deny licensure in their states if the applicant has an unresolved felony on record 
in any state. The School of Nursing reserves the right to deny admission to or 
remove students from the nursing program who have records of misconduct, legal 



School of Nursing 189 



or otherwise, that would jeopardize their professional performance. 

The School of Nursing reserves the right to revise, add, or withdraw policies 
and/or courses as necessary to ensure a quality nursing program. 

ACCREDITATION 

The programs in nursing are fully accredited by the National League for Nursing 
Accrediting Commission (350 Hudson Street, New York, NY 10014, 1-800-669- 
9656, ext. 1 53). They are recognized by Accrediting Association of Seventh-day 
Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities, Florida State Board of Independent 
College and Universities, and approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing. 

ASSESSMENT 

The School of Nursing has an ongoing assessment program. Each AS degree 
student is required to write standardized NLN examinations at specific intervals. 
Upon completion of the required nursing courses, a comprehensive nursing 
examination is given. The national NCLEX-RN licensure examination is written 
upon graduation. The Tennessee State Board of Nursing requires an annual pass 
rate of 86% for first time writers on the NCLEX-RN licensure examination in order 
for a school to be eligible for continued approval. 

To help the B.S. graduates to evaluate their academic progress and to aid the 
school in evaluating teacher effectiveness, each student during the spring semester 
of their senior year will be required to: 

1 . Write a self-analysis 

2. Complete an end-of-program survey 

3. Complete an exit examination

As an integral part of Southern Adventist University the School of Religion 
has been given the responsibility by the Board of Trustees to continue to prepare 
young men and women in theology for the Seminary, the field, and religious 
education for denominational schools. It also has been asked to provide a degree 
in Religious Studies and courses in general religion for all students. Courses are 
designed to enhance their commitment of students to Jesus Christ and their 
involvement in the mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 



MISSION STATEMENT 

The School of Religion seeks to provide general education courses that will 
encourage students to experience an ongoing saving relationship with Jesus Christ, 
that will enable students to live responsibly and ethically in harmony with the 
Holy Scriptures and that will further their understanding of the Christian beliefs 
and values of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

In addition, the School of Religion seeks to provide programs in theology, 
religious education, and religious studies of a quality that will enable its graduates 
to find employment and/or enter graduate programs in these or other fields and 
that will equip them to apply the knowledge and skills of their major field in "real 
world* situations. 

GOALS 

General Education Courses 

1. To provide instruction in the Scriptures that enhances an intelligent faith in 
Jesus Christ. 

2. To encourage development of a set of values that will provide a basis for moral 
decision-making in the Christian life. 

3. To acquaint the students with the teachings, history, and global mission of the 
Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

Theology 

1. To provide an adequate pre-Seminary training in biblical backgrounds, 
languages, history, theology, and church ministries to meet entrance 
requirements to the M.Div. degree program offered by Andrews University. 

2. To provide instruction and practical experience in church ministries and public 
evangelism as outlined in the requirements of the Certification for Ministry. 

3. To provide professional training that prepares graduates to serve the church 
effectively in their chosen career. 



206 School of Religion 



Religious Education 

1 . To prepare the student for state and church certification (in cooperation with 
the School of Education) on the elementary or secondary levels. 

2. To support candidates in meeting the requirements of the School of Education 
and its certifying officer by offering a course in Curriculum and Content 
Methods/Bible and by supervising student teaching. 

3. To qualify students to pursue graduate work in biblical and religious studies. 

Religious Studies 

1 . To provide a basic course in biblical and religious studies without meeting the 
professional requirements of the other two majors. 

2. To provide a major for students who are involved in preprofessional programs 
or who elect a double major, one of which is Religion. 

3. To prepare students to become well-informed, local church leaders. 

EFFECTIVENESS 

The School of Religion is committed to develop an ongoing assessment and 
strategy to measure its effectiveness in harmony with the Mission Statement of 
Southern Adventist University, its own mission statement, and the 
recommendation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 

Faculty Assessment 

Effectiveness of the School of Religion's faculty and program is directly or 
indirectly assessed by: 

1 . Student evaluations of all classes administered regularly through the office of 
the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

2. Majors in the final semester of their senior year. 

3. The annual meeting of the faculty with the Chair of the Board and the 
presidents of conferences within the Southern Union. 

4. The yearly meeting of the Ministerial Training Advisory Committee (MTAC) of 
the North American Division at the Seventh-day Adventist Theological 
Seminary of Andrews University which coordinates the ministerial programs 
of all Religion Schools/Departments through their respective deans/chairs. 

Student Assessment 

The quality of the School's graduates as well as its general students is assessed 

by: 

1 . A 1 6PF taken by all Theology majors in their sophomore and senior years with 
norms arrived at by extensive research of the performance of successful 
Adventist pastors. If a student's scores differ greatly from these norms, the 
faculty member assigned to administer the test meets with the student to 
discuss potential difficulties and to suggest strategies for improvement. This 
may involve referral to a professional for personal or career counseling. 
Classes in Homiletics, Church Ministry, Interpersonal Ministry, and the 
Summer Field School of Evangelism measure the student's proficiency in those 
areas. A performance evaluation is submitted by the instructor(s) and kept in 
the student's file for future reference. This may involve referral to a professional 
for personal or career counseling. 



School of Religion 207 



2. The 16PF is administered by the School of Education and Psychology to all 
Religious Education majors. If the student's scores indicate potential 
difficulties, the School of Religion is asked to assist in strategies for 
improvement. 

3. A cumulative record of Religious Studies majors is kept as a source of 
information and recommendation. This record includes data needed for 
academic advisement and guidance for graduate work or placement. 

4. The religion portion of the annual assessment testing program is prepared by 
the General Education Committee and is administered to all students through 
the office of the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

NOTE: A summary of the evaluations referred to above will be made available in the form of a check 
sheet to prospective employers who request it and will be signed by the School Dean on behalf 
of the Religion faculty. The School itself cannot guarantee employment. 

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to Theology Program 

Students seeking admission to the ministerial program with its major in 
Theology must make formal application during the second semester of the

determine individual acceptance as a Ministerial Trainee. If at any time, after 
being admitted to the program, trainees give evidence of failing to maintain 
commitment to the criteria or preparation for ministry, they forfeit their standing 
as trainees and the faculty's recognition in their senior year as Ministerial

experiences are designed to enhance professional development by acquainting the 
student with the multi-faceted responsibilities of ministry, to provide a laboratory 
for working with experienced pastors and lay leaders in visitation of both active 
and inactive members, and to allow experience in preaching to area 
congregations. These experiences are necessary before the student can be 
recommended by the School for church employment. 

Summer Field School of Evangelism 

Full-scale evangelistic meetings will be conducted for two months each 
summer under the direction of the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists and the School of Religion. All Theology majors are required to

RELP 321, 322 to be recommended for admittance. Applications and scholarship 
information may be obtained from the field school coordinator. Additional 
evangelistic opportunities for individual students and student teams may be made 
available upon approval of the School of Religion to accommodate requests from 
the conferences within the Southern Union. 

Admission to Religious Education Program 

The Religious Education Program is coordinated with the School of Education 
and Psychology for the University. Planning for certification by the states and/or 
endorsement by the Seventh-day Adventist church for Bible teaching is made with 
the certifying officer of the School of Education and Psychology, both for 
admission to the Religious Education program in the sophomore year and to the 
professional semester before the senior year. 

The criteria for admission to Religious Education, requirements for secondary 
Bible teaching, and policies and procedures related to student teaching may be 
found in the University catalog under the School of Education and Psychology and 
obtained from the secretary of the School in Summerour Hall. 

Teacher Certification and Endorsement

degree other than a Theology or Religious Education degree, or by students 
preparing for professional fields such as medicine, dentistry, law, and other 
graduate studies. 



210 School of Religion 



It is a 124-hour liberal arts major and provides a balanced selection of both 
biblical studies and theology courses, The four-year degree candidate may apply 
the required 12 hours of General Education courses in religion toward the hours 
needed for the major, thus reducing the number of extra courses needed to 
qualify. 

General Education Courses in Religion 

The objective in all religion courses is to enhance knowledge of and 
appreciation for the Scriptures, and to assist the student in gaining and maintaining 
a vital involvement with Jesus Christ, and a personal commitment to serve family, 
church, community, and the world. Six semester hours of religion are required of 
the two-year graduate, and 12 semester hours of the four-year graduate. This is 
equivalent to one three-hour course per year which may be selected from any of 
the religion courses offered. Bachelor degree students must take at least three 
semester hours at the upper division level. (Detailed information on General 
Education requirements are found in the University Catalog.) 

Graduation Requirements 

The candidates for graduation in the program for Theology must have a 2.00 
overall, a 2.25 in their major and in the area of candidacy in order to graduate, 
and a 2.50 overall for Seminary entrance. In addition to their major they must have 
20 hours in Biblical Languages, 26 hours in professional training, and 12 hours in 
cognates to qualify for Ministerial Candidacy. They must also give evidence of 
moral, physical, social, and intellectual fitness and demonstrate professional 
commitment in order for the School to recommend them as prospective ministerial 
employees. Those students pursuing the Religious Education major must have a 
2.00 overall and a 2.50 in education and in the field of certification as outlined by 
the School of Education and Psychology. The Religious Studies candidates for 
graduation, from the School of Religion, must have a cumulative grade point 
average of 2.00 overall and a 2.25 in their major as outlined in the University 
catalog. All majors must take their respective exit examinations and pass with a 
score of 70 percent or above prior to graduation. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE PROGRAMS 

The bachelor of arts degree in Theology and Religious Education requires 
courses in biblical studies and religion of which three are introductory with others 
covering the Old and New Testament, the prophetic books of Daniel and 
Revelation, and the Fundamental Beliefs of Seventh-day Adventists in the light of

Chair: Ed Lamb 

Faculty: Larry Williams, Social Work Program Director 

Terrie Ruff, Associate Social Work Program Director 
Adjunct Faculty: Valerie Radu 

PROGRAMS IN SOCIAL WORK AND FAMILY STUDIES 

The Social Work and Family Studies Department offers a degree in Social Work 
and in the Family Studies. Minors are also available in Behavioral Science, Family 
Studies, and Sociology. 

The curricula for both the BSW and Family Studies degrees include computer 
content and hands-on experience intended to enable majors to develop 
elementary skills including word processing, Internet, CD ROMS, 
video— interactive, and statistical analysis. Majors are encouraged to have their 
own personal computers (PCS) if possible. 

SQCIAIWQRK 

The study of social work is one of the most exciting and important fields of 
inquiry and practice within the people sciences. A historic and defining feature 
of the social work profession is its focus on individual well-being within a social 
context coupled with a keen interest in the well-being of society as a whole. 
Particular attention is given to the needs and empowerment of people who are 
vulnerable, oppressed, and living in poverty. Fundamental to social work is its 
emphasis on environmental forces that create, contribute to, as well as ameliorate 
problems of human existence. 

The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW) prepares students for entry-level 
social work generalist baccalaureate practice. The BSW is the foundation degree 
for social work careers in mental health, child welfare, health care, public welfare, 
schools, family service, developmental disabilities, service to the aged, industry, 
business and labor, and criminal justice. The degree is designed to also prepare 
students for informed community participation in social welfare issues. The BSW 
is the preferred preparation for the terminal graduate practice degree, the Masters 
of Social Work, (MSW). Job opportunities in the social work field are projected 
to grow at an above average rate during the near future. 

The program makes available a number of experiences, both curricular and 
extracurricular, to enrich its students' academic experience. Multiple volunteer 
opportunities deepen understanding and compassion. A number of field 
experiences enhance commitment and skill building. National and international 
study tours are available to engender cross-cultural and global perspectives (see 
below). The center piece of the applied dimension of the curriculum is the five 
hundred hour FIELD PRACTICUM INTERNSHIP in which each student participates 
in 'real life* experience while being supervised by a seasoned and credentialed 
professional social worker. 

Extracurricular opportunities include membership in the National Association 
of Social Workers and the Phi Alpha Honor Society. Social Work Month is 
celebrated each March. The Edward Lamb Community Scholarship Fund provides 
opportunity to develop fund raising skills, socialization for social service 
commitment, and monies for the educational expenses of exemplary students.

through senior, and two students elected at large. This committee provides a 
formalized student voice concerning any aspect of the social work program (see 
Student Handbook). 

POLICIES 

Students who are admitted to the social work program are considered 
adequately mature to realize the importance of accepting personal responsibility 
for their learning and professional behavior. 

The social work program Student Handbook outlines the policies of the 
program. Each student accepted into the program is responsible to become 
acquainted with and to abide by these policies. 

Transportation for volunteer and practicum experiences is not provided by the 
program. Students will be expected to provide their own transportation or make 
arrangements to share this expense with fellow students participating in the same 
experiences. 

The social work program reserves the right to deny admission to or to remove 
students from the social work program who have an unresolved felony on record 
in any state or who have records of misconduct, legal or otherwise, that would 
jeopardize their professional performance. 

The social work program reserves the right to revise, add, or withdraw policies 
and/or courses as necessary to ensure a quality social work program. 

ACCREDITATION 

The social work program has achieved full national accreditation with the 
Council on Social Work Education. 

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

Admission to Southern Adventist University does not automatically enroll the 
student in the social work program. Declaration as a social work major is not 
equivalent of acceptance to the program. The final decision on acceptance and 



222 Social Work and Family Studies 



continuation in the program is made by the program Admissions and Progressions 
Committee. 

During the first semester of the sophomore year the student should file a formal 
application to the social work program (refer to the Student Handbook for 
specifics). Application forms may be obtained from the office manager in the 
program office. Minimum requirements for admission to the program and upper 
division courses are listed below: 

1 . Acceptance to Southern Adventist University. 

2. Completion of application form and statement. 

3. Submission of a current unofficial transcript. 

4. Have an overall grade point average of 2.50 or higher (exceptions may be

212: Social Welfare as an Institution with a grade of C or higher. 

6. Show evidence of physical, mental, and moral fitness. Further references

9. Completion of a successful interview with the Admissions and Progressions 
Committee. 

The Committee reviews the application material, conducts the interview, and 
makes a decision concerning the application. Applicants are notified of the 
Committee's decision by a letter from the program director. An applicant denied 
admission to the social work program may appeal the denial decision in person 
and/or in writing to the Admission and Progressions Committee. If this process is 
unsatisfactory to the student, the University appeals process described in this 
Catalog may be followed. 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students intending to major in social work who are attending other colleges or 
universities, or who are transferring from another major at Southern Adventist 
University, should apply for admission by April 1 of their sophomore year, IN 
ORDER TO STAY ON SCHEDULE WITH THE SEQUENCE OF SOCIAL WORK 
PROGRAM COURSES, AN INTRODUCTORY SOCIAL WELFARE/SOCIAL WORK 
COURSE, INCLUDING 40 HOURS OF DOCUMENTED VOLUNTEER 
EXPERIENCE, MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE ENTERING THE SOCIAL WORK 
PROGRAM. 

Those applying to the social work major after their sophomore year will be 
considered on a case by case basis. If the introductory course has not been 
completed, it is taken the first semester after declaring social work as a major. This 
will delay admission consideration until the following semester and may result in 
graduation taking more than four years. 

The social work program seeks to maintain a heterogenous student body by 
enrolling students who represent diverse backgrounds and cultural perspectives. 



Social Work and Family Studies 223 



ASSESSMENT 

The social work program maintains a comprehensive assessment policy. In 
order to provide for evaluation of the program and monitoring teaching

semester of the senior year. 

2. Present a personal portfolio of papers, case materials, and video to the 
program faculty (see Student Handbook). 

3. Complete a graduating senior survey.

Program effectiveness will be assessed by combining the results of the above 
cumulative evaluations. An ongoing analysis of courses and course content 
required for majors is made by the social work faculty to assure that the curriculum 
meets the objectives of the program and the standards of the national accrediting 
body, the Council on Social Work Education. 

FAMILY STUDIES 

The Family Studies degree is interdisciplinary in nature and combines various 
dimension of the social sciences along with a strong liberal arts foundation to gain 
an understanding of individuals and families. The major is for those students 
wishing to prepare for graduate study in community and/or family counseling, law, 
personnel work, sociology of the family, or family life education. 

ASSESSMENT

1 . Take an oral exam during the fall semester of the senior year that will be 
based on assigned readings and course work material. 

2. Present a personal portfolio of papers and case material to the departmental 
faculty.

York City yearly during Thanksgiving vacation and a study tour to Europe every 
other summer. The objectives of these tours are to facilitate a better understanding

Non-Degree 
Preprofessional Programs 



Preprofessional and pretechnical curricula are offered in a wide variety of fields. 
Below are listed the curricula most frequently chosen. If other preprofessional 
programs are desired, faculty advisors are prepared to assist the student in working 
out a satisfactory sequence of courses needed to meet the admission requirements 
of the chosen professional school. 



ANESTHESIA 

Adviser: L. Phil Hunt 

Registered nurses who are experienced and comfortable working in critical care 
areas may become registered nurse anesthetists. Graduation from an approved 
program of nursing and a valid nursing license is required. Additional 
requirements may be determined by consulting the School of Nursing.

LAW 

Adviser: Ben McArthur 

Students interested in the study of law as a profession should become 
acquainted with the entrance requirements of various law schools. This will make 
possible the planning of a preprofessional program which will qualify the student 
for admission to several schools. 

It is a general requirement that students complete a bachelor's degree before 
entering law school. Although no particular major is required, four fields should 
be especially considered by the student serious about law school. These are: 
business, history, English, and behavioral science. Certain courses recommended 
by all law schools include American history, freshman composition, principles of 
accounting, American government, principles of economics, English history, 
business law, and mathematics. Pre-law students should concentrate on 
developing their analytical, verbal, and writing skills. 

Southern Adventist University offers a Political Economy minor, which 
combines an interdisciplinary selection of courses helpful for law school 
preparation. This eighteen-hour minor consists of: 

1 . ECON 224 Principles of Economics 3 hours 

2. PLSC 254 American Government 3 hours 

3. PLSC 471 Classics of Western Thought I QR 

PLSC 472 Classics of Western Thought II 3 hours

It is recommended that students plan a curriculum that includes study of the 
humanities and social sciences to provide a solid preparation for the future role of 
the physician. 

Applicants are also encouraged to obtain experience where they are directly 
involved in the providing of health care. The Biology Department collaborates 
with Chattanooga's Erlanger Medical Center in a premedical preceptorship 
program. This program provides the opportunity for upper division pre-medical 
students to shadow resident physicians in the hospital for up to 24-hour periods. 

The applicant is required to have taken the new Medical College Admission Test 
(MCAT) prior to consideration by the admissions committee. This exam is 
administered twice a year— in August and April. Application for the exam is made 
through the Counseling and Testing Center one to two months before the exam is 
scheduled. For entrance into medical school following graduation, the student 
should plan on taking the MCAT in April of the junior year or in August preceding 
the senior year. All of the above required science courses should be completed by 
this time to insure maximum performance on the MCAT exam. 

Once or twice each year representatives from LLU and other schools of 
medicine visit the campus to interview prospective students. Premedical students 
are encouraged to make appointments to speak with them. 

Most medical schools are members of the American Medical College 
Application Service (AMCAS). Applications must be submitted through this 
service. The AMCAS application may be obtained from the Counseling and 
Testing Office or directly from AMCAS and should be sent directly to AMCAS 
between June 16 and November 1 for entry into medical school the following 
year. 

American Medical College Application Service 
1 1 76 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. 
Washington, DC 20036-1989 

After receiving the applications from AMCAS, the admissions office of the 
medical school reviews the candidates and determines whether or not 
supplementary information is needed. 

Medical schools usually require a letter of recommendation from the pre- 
professional recommendation committee of the applicant's undergraduate college. 
Senior pre-medical students are asked to provide the names and addresses of all 
medical schools to which they are applying to the Vice President for Academic 
Administration's office before October 1 . 



244 Non-Decree Preprofessional Programs 



Following a careful evaluation of the supplementary application and letters of 
recommendation submitted to the admissions office, selected applicants may be 
invited for a personal interview by the medical school. 

OPTOMETRY 

Adviser: Chris Hansen 

The admission requirements to colleges of optometry vary, so the student should 
follow the catalog from the school of his/her choice. However, all place emphasis 
on biology, chemistry, mathematics and physics. Additional courses in the areas 
of fine arts, language, literature, and the social sciences are usually necessary. 

A minimum of two years of preoptometric study is required. However, 
additional study increases the prospects of acceptance into professional training. 

Following is a list of preoptometry courses required by most schools: 

BIOL 151-152, 416, 418 18 hours 

CHEM 151-152,311,314 14 hours

OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE 

Adviser: Joyce Azevedo, Ann Foster, Keith Snyder 

An alternative to allopathic medical schools, which grant the M.D. degree, are 
the osteopathic medical schools whose graduates receive the D.O. degree. 

Many Seventh-day Adventists have attended the University of Health Sciences, 
College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, Missouri, one of fifteen 
osteopathic medical colleges in this country. 

Requirements for admission are similar to those for allopathic medical schools 
such as Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Students apply to schools of 
osteopathic medicine through the American Association of Colleges of 
Osteopathic Medicine Application Service. Application packets may be obtained 
by writing to:

should be maintained in both science and non-science subjects. 



Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 245 



PHARMACY 

Adviser: Bruce Schilling 

A bachelor's degree program in pharmacy normally requires five years of 
schooling while a doctorate in pharmacy (PharmD) is usually a six year program. 
The first two years of either of these programs may be taken at Southern Adventist 
University. Not all colleges of pharmacy offer both degrees, many now offer only 
the PharmD degree. 

Admission requirements to colleges of pharmacy vary from school to school so 
the student should consult the catalog of the school of his/her choice for specific 
course requirements. All schools place a strong emphasis on chemistry, biology, 
physics, and mathematics. 

Minimum admission requirements to the University of Tennessee College of 
Pharmacy at Memphis are: 

BIOL 151-152, 225 12 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312 16 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours

General Electives 4 hours 

A total of 66 semester hours of required course work must be taken. A 
minimum grade of *C* must be obtained for each required pre-pharmacy class. 
A higher grade point average will increase the chances of acceptance into 
pharmacy school. In addition, a satisfactory score must be achieved on the 
National Pharmacy College Admission Test. 

Loma Linda University will be accepting its first class of students for the new 
School of Pharmaceutical Sciences PharmD program in 1999. Official admission 
requirements have not yet been published, but will include the following: 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312 16 hours 

BIOL 151-152 8 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 hours

Mathematics should be taken through precalculus algebra and trigonometry 
(MATH 120,121). One semester of calculus (MATH 181) is strongly 
recommended. General education requirements will be added and will likely 
include, at a minimum, one religion class for each year of attendance at Southern 
Adventist University or other Adventist College/University as well as a course in 
cultural diversity. 



246 Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 



PODIATRIC MEDICINE: 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

An alternative to allopathic (M.D.) and osteopathic (D.O.) medical schools are 
the podiatric medical schools whose graduates receive the D.P.M. degree. Doctors 
of podiatric medicine are physicians trained in the medical and surgical treatment 
of the human foot and ankle. 

To gain acceptance to a school of Podiatric Medicine, a bachelors degree is 
highly desirable. Preprofessional course work, with a minimum of 90 semester 
hours, is required of all students. Applicants are required to take the Medical 
College Admission Test (MCAT). In addition, most D.P.M. schools require the 
same prerequisite science classes as the M.D. and D.O. schools. 

There are seven colleges of podiatric medicine, six of which participate in the 
American Association of Colleges of Podiatric Medicine Application Service 
(AACPMAS). The six schools in the AACPMAS are located in California, Florida, 
Illinois, Iowa, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. An application packet can be obtained by 
writing or calling: 
AACPMAS

VETERINARY MEDICINE 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Competition for admission to colleges of veterinary medicine is keen. 
Consequently, most successful applicants have completed a degree rather than the 
minimum requirements listed below. It should also be noted that it is difficult to 
be accepted in any veterinary institution other than the school in the state where 
the applicant resides. 

The applicant must make a satisfactory score on the Veterinary College 
Admission Test (VCAT) in addition to meeting grade point average and personal 
qualifications for admission. Professional training involves four years of veterinary 
school beyond college. 

Minimum admission requirements to .the University of Tennessee College of 
Veterinary Medicine in Knoxville are: 

BIOL 151-152, 316, 412 15 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312, 313-314, 323 20 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

PHYS 21 1-212, 213-214 ; 8 hours 

Additional requirements include: 

Humanities and Social Sciences 18 hours 

Admission requirements will vary between veterinary schools; therefore, it is 
recommended that the pre-veterinary student work closely with his/her adviser in 
assuring that the specific requirements for the schools of his/her choice are met.

Contract to the Student Finance Office signed by the student indicating 
acknowledgment of this responsibility. 

Information on student costs and means of paying those costs is given 
throughout this 'Financial Policies* section of the Catalog to assist students in 
financial planning. Student financial responsibility includes awareness of this 
information. 

Student Account Cash Withdrawals 

Students may receive (upon written request) up to 25% of their earnings for 
tithe and personal items. (If students have chosen to have their tithe 
automatically withheld, they may receive up to 1 5% of their earnings.) Additional 
cash withdrawals may be made by exception: 

1 . Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their tuition and books, who 
live out of the residence halls, and have a no-charge ID card. 

2. Students whose parents pay their accounts using Payment Plan I or II, with 
written permission from their parents. 

3. Students who receive Federal Work/Study earnings will receive at least 75% of 
their earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be 
applied to their student account or they voluntarily return their earnings to be 
applied to their student account at the time they sign their check each month. 
Further information is available from a financial counselor. 

The payroll period normally covers a four-week period, with the last day of this 
period being 10-14 working days prior to the end of the month. Earnings will be 
credited to students' accounts and paychecks will be available only after the 
monthly statements have been printed. Students must wait until they receive their 
earnings statements before they are allowed to withdraw any additional cash from 
earnings. 

On-campus summer earnings should remain on the students' accounts to 
accumulate toward their advance payment. 

When no labor earnings are available to be withdrawn, no cash withdrawals 
may be made, except by special permission. Parents wishing to provide a student 
with cash for personal expenses should use a means other than depositing funds 



248 Finances 



to the student's account. (Further information is available under the "Student 
Banking* heading. ) 

Although the Cashier's Office honors VISA, MasterCard, Discover, and 
American Express cards for making payments on a student's account, no cash 
withdrawal service from these cards is available. This service may be obtained 
from a local bank. 

Student Check Cashing 

Students are encouraged to use their home banks or a local area bank for their 
personal financial services. The Cashier's Office will cash checks not to exceed 
$300 if approved by Student Finance. No third party checks will be honored. 
Checks must be made payable either to the student or to cash. Proper 
identification is required. 

Each time a check is returned by a bank for insufficient funds, account closed, 
or any other reason, there will be an $18 returned check fee assessed to the 
student's account. The student then forfeits the privilege of cashing future checks. 

Student Banking 

For the convenience of students and/or their financial sponsors, no-fee banking 
is available at the Collegedale Credit Union located in Fleming Plaza on the 
University campus. Service is provided six days each week. With a $50 saving 
account (membership) students can open a no-fee checking account with no 
minimum balance. Several commercial banks close to the campus community 
provide similar opportunities. 

Student Tithing (see "Student Payroll Tithing" in "Student Labor" section) 

Student Personal Effects Liability 

When determining what to bring to campus, students should remember that the 
University is not responsible for the personal effects of any student even though 
such effects may be required by the University for student use, or required by the 
University to be stored in a designated location. University-carried insurance does 
not insure the personal effects of any individual. The University recommends that 
students consider carrying insurance to cover such losses.

residents of Canada. The deposit must be received by the Accounting Office 
before a U.S. Immigration Form I-20 is sent to the prospective student for entry to 
the U.S. Because mail service from many foreign countries takes time, this deposit

untouched (with interest paid at the rate of two percent less than prime, based on 
the prime rate at the time of deposit) until the student graduates, withdraws from 
SAU, or is unable to pay his or her student account, at which time the

other college or University transcripts must be on file in the Admissions Office 
no later than four weeks prior to the beginning of the semester for which the 
graduate is applying.

The University will guarantee to the student that tuition will remain constant 
under the following provisions: 

1 . This plan is not available to students receiving financial aid. However, parents 
taking a Parent Plus Loan may include this amount in their paynent. 

2. The tuition rate in effect at the time of the first contract (including beginning 
second semester) will remain in effect until the student graduates. The student 
must maintain full-time continuous registration, not to excetd four years, 
excluding a one-year leave of absence which may be given for student 
missionaries, ACA, or task force workers. This plan is not applicable to summer 
school. 

3. Total estimated cost for the year must be paid prior to or at fall registration. 

4. Any cash withdrawals, except student earnings, will void the contract. 

5. Participants in this plan are eligible for a five percent cash discount on the total

a five percent discount will be given on general fee, room, board, and books 
only. 

6. Dependents of denominational workers may deduct the denominational tuition 
assistance when making their payment; however, the tuition assistance must be 
received by the University from either the denominational employer or the 
denominational worker within two months after registration or the contract is 
void. 

7. Student earnings may be withdrawn from the student's account and will not 
reduce the amount to be paid. 

8. Costs in excess of the total estimated amount to be paid will be billed monthly 
and should be paid on a monthly basis or the contract is void. 

9. Should the estimated cost be less than the amount paid, the credit will be 
refunded after June 1 . 

10. If the Payment Contract is broken for any of the above reasons, or the student 
withdraws during the school year, the student who re-enters Payment Plan If 
may do so based on the rates of enrollment for the new year.

other miscellaneous charges. The student/financial sponsor must pre-pay each year 
the total estimated costs no later than the last day of registration. 

Payment Plan III— Contract for Monthly Payments 

A monthly payment contract plan will be available for the 1998-99 academic 
year through the Student Finance Office. The Tuition Management Systems 
monthly payment plan is no longer available.

each month the deduction should be made, and the amount to be deducted each 
month will be required. 

Personal Check Payments

Families unable to pay the minimum amount due may call the Student Finance 
Office to make financial arrangements. 

Before semester examinations may be taken, or before registering for a new 
semester, the semester student account balance must be paid in full, or monthly 
payments must be current according to the payment plan in which the student has 
enrolled. 

Denominational Tuition Assistance 

Prior to fall registration, a financial information packet is sent to the 
parent/financial sponsor of all accepted students. A form is included in this packet 
for those who qualify for tuition assistance from their employer. This form should 
be completed for each eligible student each school year and returned to the 



Finances 259 



Student Finance Office. The Accounting Office will then bill the appropriate 
institution for this tuition assistance in September, for first semester, and in 
February for second semester. It is the obligation of the parent/financial sponsor 
to be sure the tuition assistance is paid on a timely basis. 

Interest on Past-Due Balance 

If a past-due balance on the November statement is not paid by December 20, 
a service charge of four percent of the past-due amount will be applied to the 
January statement. If a past-due balance on the March statement is not paid by 
April 20, a service charge of four percent of the past-due amount will be applied 
to the April statement. A monthly service charge of one percent will be charged 
on any past-due balance for the months of May, June, July, and August. 

Transcript Requests for Currently Enrolled Students 

It is the policy of the University to withhold transcripts if a student has an 
unpaid or past-due account at the school, or any unpaid account for which the 
University has co-signed. 

An official grade transcript will be issued for a currently enrolled student when 
the student's account is current according to the payment schedule set forth above. 
Exceptions may be considered to receive an official grade transcript when the 
account is current except for the disbursement of any Federal student loan for 
which a guarantee has been established. A student's failure to comply with 
instructions can delay the release of a transcript. 

When payment is made by personal check, the transcript will be held for ten 
working days to allow the check to clear. To expedite the release of these 
documents, the student should send a money order or certified check to cover the 
balance of the account when requesting the documents. Under provisions of 
federal loan programs, Southern Adventist University withholds any records when 
payments for these loans become past due or are in default. 

Financial Aid Overawards 

When financial aid recipients receive additional resources not included in the 
financial aid award letter, it is the student's responsibility to report these funds to 
the Student Finance Office. Federal regulations prohibit "overawards;* therefore, 
when the total of all resources exceeds the allowable student budget, financial aid 
awards must be adjusted. When financial aid funds have already been credited to 
the student's statement, any refunds due to the federal aid programs or the amount 
of the overaward will be charged to the student's account. 

Credit Refund Policy 

Credit balances are refundable, upon request, 30 days after the monthly 
statement is received for the last month the student was in school in order to be 
certain that all charges have been processed. For example, if a student drops out 
of school in December, a full credit refund would not be made until after the 
January statement is prepared during the first week of February. When the credit 
balance is large, a portion may be refunded earlier upon request to the 
Disbursements Office. 



260 Finances 



If the student has received financial aid during the current semester, any credit 
balance will be credited to the aid funds, according to the Financial Aid Refund 
Policy on page . Cash refunds will not be made to the student without 
authorization from the parent or financial sponsor. 

COLLECTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 

Accounts Collection Policy 

Students completing or terminating their studies with the University are 
required to pay their balance in full prior to leaving. Students on a monthly 
payment plan must sign a promissory note stating the payment agreement. 
Payments due on non-current accounts that are not received by the last working 
day of the month will be charged a one percent per month service charge. 

When a student who was enrolled first semester does not enroll second 
semester and has left with an unpaid account, that account will be turned over to 
Southern Adventist University's Student Loan Services Office by February 15. 

When a student leaves at the end of second semester who has not re-applied, 
the account will be turned over to the SAU Student Loan Services Office by June 
15. 

When a student leaves at the end of second semester with an unpaid account 
who has reapplied for the following year, the student will have from May through 
August to bring the account current. If the student decides not to return, then this 
account will be turned over to the SAU Student Loan Services Office by September 
15. 

At the time any account is turned over to the SAU Student Loan Services Office, 
a carrying charge of one percent per month will apply. 

When a non-current account is 90 days past due and neither satisfactory 
payments nor communication have been received, and unsuccessful attempts have 
been made by the SAU Student Loan Services Office to contact the individual, the 
account will be reported to a nationally recognized credit bureau, and will be 
submitted to a collection agency or attorney. 

Since delinquent accounts are reported to the credit bureau systems, prompt 
payment of accounts builds credit ratings which will be important to the student 
in the future. 

If the University deems it necessary to employ a collection agency or an 
attorney to collect defaulted accounts, all charges for these services, including 
court costs, if incurred, will be added to unpaid bills. 

Policy on Transcript, Diploma, and Test Score Requests for Non<urrent Students 
It is the policy of the University to withhold transcripts, diplomas, test scores, 
certificates of completion, and other records if a student has an unpaid or past<jue 
account at the school, any unpaid account for which the University has co-signed, 
or (if a federal loan borrower) has not completed an Exit Interview. 

Official grade transcripts for non-enrolled students will be issued when 
students' accounts are paid in full and when there are no delinquencies in the 
payment of student loans. No exceptions will be made. 

When payment is made by personal check, the transcript will be held for ten 
working days to allow the check to clear. To expedite the release of these 
documents, the student should send a money order or certified check to cover the 
balance of the account when requesting the documents. Under provisions of 
federal loan programs, Southern Adventist University withholds any records when 
payments for these loans become past due or are in default.

Policy on Legal Proceedings 

Southern Adventist University shall not render services to former students who 
may be involved in any legal proceedings, until court confirmation has been 
received with regards to the legal actions taken 

Bankruptcy Policies and Procedures 

Recognizing that the discharge of a debt through bankruptcy proceedings 
prohibits a creditor from subsequently pursuing the collection of the debt, the 
University, upon notification by the court of such filing, complies with this legal 
prohibition. The bankruptcy of the financial sponsor in no way changes the 
underlying financial obligation of the student to pay his or her student account. No 
further services will be extended. 

STUDENT LABOR 

Student Labor Regulations 

Work opportunities are available in departments/schools and industries 
operated by the University and at local private businesses. Students seeking 
employment should contact the Human Resources/Student Employment office for 
a listing of available positions or to complete an employment application. 

Although Southern Adventist University cannot guarantee a student 
employment, the University will endeavor to find a work opportunity either at the 
University or at a local business. Students are urged to arrange class schedules that 
allow "blocks* of time for work. 

All hiring formalities are completed in the Human Resources/Student 
Employment Office. Students must bring their Social Security cards and one 
identification document, such as a passport, drivers license, or original birth 
certificate, in order to complete the hiring process legally. Students who are not 
American citizens must produce an unexpired employment authorization 
document such as a valid 1-20 or other legal document before employment can be 
arranged. 

Students are expected to maintain satisfactory job performance and meet all 
work appointments, including those during examination week. Work 
superintendents reserve the right to dismiss students if their service and work 
records are unsatisfactory. Should a student find it necessary to be absent from 
work, s/he must make arrangements with the work supervisor and, if ill, with 
Student Health Service. 

A student accepting employment is expected to retain it for the entire semester 
except in cases where changes are recommended by the school nurse or the 
Human Resources/Student Employment Office. Should a student receive 
opportunities for more favorable employment at another department on campus 
during the semester, the transfer must be made through the Human 
Resources/Student Employment Office and the two employing departments. A 
student must NOT drop his/her work schedule without notifying the Human 
Resources/Student Employment Office. 

The student pay rate is not less than the current minimum wage rate. It may be 
higher, depending on a student's grade level, if a student possesses special skills 
or training and shows responsibility and consistency. 

Students who work more than 20 hours per individual week or who are 
enrolled for less than 12 credit hours will have Social Security taxes (FICA) 
withheld from their earnings. 



262 Finances 



Students may work off campus; however, permission may be withheld for off- 
campus employment that could be detrimental to a student's health or character 
development. 

Foreign Student Labor Regulations 

Foreign students on non-immigrant visas are required by law to secure 
permission before accepting any off-campus employment. Foreign students with 
student visas are allowed to work on campus up to 20 hours a week. Spouses may 
work only if they have student visas of their own or have immigrant visas. 

Student Payroll Policies and Procedures 

Students may receive (upon written request) up to 25% of their earnings for 
tithe and personal items. (If students have chosen to have their tithe automatically 
withheld, they may receive up to 1 5% of their earnings. Further information on 
automatic deduction of tithe appears in 'Student Payroll Tithing." ) Additional cash 
withdrawals may be made by exception: 

1 . Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their tuition and books, who 
live out of the residence halls, and have a no-charge ID card. 

2. Students whose parents pay their accounts under Payment Plan I or II with 
written permission from their parents to receive additional withdrawals. 

3. Students who receive Federal Work/Study earnings will receive at least 75% of 
their earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be 
applied to their student account or they voluntarily return their earnings to be 
applied to their student account at the time they sign their check each month. 
Further information is available from a financial counselor. 

The payroll period normally covers a four-week time period, with the last day 
of this period being 10-14 working days prior to the end of the month. Earnings 
will be credited to students' accounts and paychecks will be available only after 
the monthly statements have been printed. Students must wait until they receive 
their earnings statements before they are allowed to withdraw any additional cash 
from earnings. 

On-campus summer earnings should remain on the students' accounts to 
accumulate toward their advance payment. 

Student Payroll Tithing 

Southern Adventist University encourages the payment of tithe and offerings 
by its student workers. In order to facilitate this practice, arrangements may be 
made by the student (except for those employed in the Federal Work-Study 
Program) to have ten percent of his/her school earnings charged to his/her account 
as tithe and two percent for offerings. These funds are then transferred by the 
University to the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church. These arrangements 
are made through the Human Resources/Student Employment Office. 

Student Workers' Compensation Insurance 

As provided by the laws of the State of Tennessee, the University carries 
workers' compensation insurance to protect all employees in case of work-related 
accidents. 



Finances 263 



Summer Work Incentive Program 

1 . Work supervisors may recommend raises for a student's summer wage 
within the pre-set wage rate scale. 

2. Two-thirds of the resident hall student's summer rent will be refunded after 
registration for the fall term, provided: 

A. A minimum of 200 hours of summer work is completed. 

B. The student is enrolled for at least six credit hours for the fall term. 

3. Any variation to the above plan must be approved by the Administrative 
Council. 

FINANCIAL AID POLICY 

Southern Adventist University provides financial aid for students in the form of 
loans, grants, scholarships, and employment. The source of these funds is in most 
cases the United States government (in the form of Title IV funds), the student's 
state, a private group or corporation, or Southern Adventist University. Financial 
aid applicants will not be denied assistance on the basis of sex, race, color, 
national origin, or ethnicity. The Student Finance Office follows established 
procedures and practices which will assure equitable and consistent treatment of 
all applicants. 

Students are urged to contact the Student Finance Office, P.O. Box 370, 
Collegedale, Tennessee 37315-0370, (1-800-SOUTHERN), for information about

variety of scholarship funds to students who meet the scholarship requirements. 
These awards usually range from $200 to $1,000 per year depending upon the 
student's need and availability of funds. 

The amount of a student's SAU need-based scholarship award will be reduced 
by the amount the student receives from all sources that exceeds the total 
budgeted expenses for the school year. Scholarship funds will not be applied to 
certain extra-curricular expenses. If the student's grade point average (GPA) falls 
below the required level, the SAU scholarship will be deferred or canceled. Any 
requests for exceptions should be addressed to the Financial Appeals Committee. 

The following SAU scholarships are awarded to eligible students regardless of 
financial need:

endowment funds to students who have financial need, are achieving 
academically, are working part time, and, for the second semester disbursement 
of the awarded grant, whose first semester charges have been paid in full. The 
amount of these awards is variable per year depending upon the student's need 
and availability of funds. 

The amount of a student's SAU need-based institutional grant award, as well as 
his/her federal grant award, will be determined after all the necessary federal and 
institutional applications are completed and processed. If the student's grade point 
average (GPA) falls below the required level, the SAU grant will be deferred or 
canceled. Any requests for exceptions should be addressed to the Financial 
Appeals Committee. 

SAU ENDOWMENT GRANTS— These funds are awarded to students who have

Loans 

FEDERAL NURSING STUDENT LOANS are available to nursing students only. 
Repayment and five percent interest assessment begin nine months after a student 
graduates, leaves school, drops below half-time enrollment, or drops from the 
nursing program. 

FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN (formerly National Direct Student Loan) — Under this 
program students can borrow up to $4,000 from the federal government through 
Southern Adventist University. Repayment and five percent interest begin nine 
months after a student graduates, leaves school, or drops below half-time 
enrollment. 

FEDERAL PLUS LOANS are available to parents of dependent undergraduate 
students who have satisfactory credit histories. The student must be enrolled at 
least half-time. These loans, like Federal Stafford Loans, are made by a lender such 
as a bank, credit union, or savings and loan association. The yearly loan limit is 
a student's cost of education minus any estimated financial aid s/he is eligible for. 

For PLUS loans first disbursed on or after July 1 , 1 997, the interest rate will be 
variable, but not higher than nine percent. Variable interest rates are set each 
June. For more information on the interest rate, parents should contact the 
organization that holds their loan. That organization will also notify the parents of 
any interest rate changes. 

Students' parents will pay an 'origination fee* of three percent of the loan 
principal. This amount must be deducted proportionately from each disbursement 
made. The lender may collect an insurance premium of up to one percent of the 
loan principal, which must also be deducted proportionately from each 
disbursement. 

The procedure for applying is the same as for a Federal Stafford Loan. Southern 
Adventist University can refuse to certify a loan application, or can certify a loan 
for an amount less than a student's parents would be eligible for. 

Federal law requires lenders to send the loan proceeds to the school in at least 
two payments. Payments will be sent either by electronic transfer or by check 
made co-payable to the school and to the parents. No payment may exceed one- 
half of the loan amount. 

Monthly principle and interest payments begin 60 days after the final loan 
disbursement. There is no "grace period* for these loans. 

If a deferment — a postponement of repayment — applies (including a 
deferment for school enrollment), a student's parents repayment of the principal 
amount borrowed will not begin until the deferment ends. The interest on the loan 
is not deferred during the time of the deferment, although the organization that 
holds the loan may allow the interest to accumulate until the deferment ends. In 
such a case, however, the interest will be added to the principal, increasing the 
amount of principal that will need to be repaid. 

FEDERAL STAFFORD LOANS are low-interest loans made to students attending 
school at least half-time. Loans are made by a lender such as a bank, credit union, 
or savings and loan association. These loans are insured by the guarantee agency 
in each state and reinsured by the federal government. A borrower must repay this 
loan. 

Students enrolled at least half-time may qualify for a 'subsidized* Federal 
Stafford Loan, which is based on financial need. Dependent students whose 
parents were denied a PLUS loan and independent students who enroll at least 
half-time may also apply for an "unsubsidized* Federal Stafford Loan regardless 



Finances 267 



of need: that is, regardless of their or their family's income. 
Dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to: 

• $2,625 if they are first-year students enrolled in a program of study that is 
a full academic year. 

• $3,500 if they have completed the first year of study and the remainder of 
their program is a full academic year. 

• $5,500 a year if they have completed two years of study and the remainder 
of the program is at least one academic year. 

The total Stafford Loan debt that a dependent undergraduate student may 
accumulate is $23,000. 

The amounts given are the maximum amounts that can be borrowed; however, 
students cannot borrow more than the cost of education at Southern Adventist 
University minus any other financial aid they receive. 

Independent undergraduate students may borrow up to: 

• $6,625 if they are first-year students enrolled in a program of study that is 
a full academic year. (At least $4,000 of this amount must be in 
unsubsidized Stafford Loans.) 

• $7,500 if they have completed the first year of study and the remainder of 
the program is a full academic year. (At least $4,000 of this amount must 
be in unsubsidized Stafford Loans.) 

• $10,500 a year if they have completed two years of study and the 
remainder of their program is at least one academic year. (At least $5,000 
of this amount must be in unsubsidized Stafford Loans.) 

The total Stafford Loan debt that an independent undergraduate student may 
accumulate is $46,000. 

The amounts given are the maximum amounts that can be borrowed; however, 
students cannot borrow more than the cost of education at Southern Adventist 
University minus any other financial aid they receive. 

Associate Degree Students may only borrow up to the second year level. 

Undergraduate Students Attending Less than a Full Academic Year may 

borrow an amount which will be less than the amounts listed above. Information 
about how much may be borrowed can be obtained from the Student Finance 
Office. 

Graduate Students may borrow up to $18,500 in Stafford loans annually for 
each academic year, with subsidized Stafford loans comprising no more than 
$8,500 of the total amount. The student may not borrow more than $65,500 for 
the total graduate program. 

The amounts given are the maximum amounts that can be borrowed; however, 
students cannot borrow more than the cost of education at Southern Adventist 
University minus any other financial aid they receive. 

Work 

FEDERAL WORK-STUDY PROGRAM - Federal Work/Study funds are 
available to undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need. Under the 
Federal Work-Study program, the employer pays a small part of the student's 



268 Finances 



wages, and the government pays the remainder. Most work-study positions are on 
campus. Students are responsible to acquire their own jobs and sign a Federal 
Work-Study contract. 

Students can work part-time while they are in school. They can work full-time 
during the summer and other vacation periods. The basic pay rate is no less than 
the current minimum wage. The rate varies depending on the skill and experience 
needed for the job. 

Other Grants, Loans, and Scholarships 

Grants, loans, and scholarships are available to students meeting the above 
requirements or having exceptional academic achievements. Details concerning 
amounts and qualifications for recipients of these funds can be obtained from the 
Student Finance Office. 

Veterans' Benefits 

Southern Adventist University is approved for the training of veterans as an 
accredited training institution. V.A. benefits are not available to students on the L. 
W. Blake Hospital, and Bayonet Point Medical Center, and may not be available 
for students enrolled in classes offered off the Collegedale campus. Those who 
qualify for educational benefits should contact the nearest Department of Veterans' 
Affairs. 

Veterans or other eligible persons are required to attend classes in order to be 
eligible for educational benefits. Southern Adventist University is required to 
report promptly to the V.A. the last day of attendance when an eligible student 
withdraws or stops attending classes regularly. 

A recipient may not receive benefits for any course that does not fulfill 
requirements for his/her stated degree and major. Audited courses, non-credit 
courses (except for a required remedial course), and correspondence work cannot 
be certified. 

FINANCIAL AID REQUIREMENTS 

Genera/ Requirements 

Financial aid awards are made for one academic year to students who are 
accepted for admission and demonstrate a financial need. Recipients of 
government aid must hold U.S. citizenship or a permanent resident visa. (Visa 
documents must be submitted with aid application.) Students desiring aid must 
reapply each year, have a GED or high school diploma on file in the Records 
Office, and continue to make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree to 
receive financial aid. 

WARNING: If a student purposely gives false or misleading information on 
the Federal Aid Application, s/he may be fined $10,000, sent to prison, or both. 

Academic Progress Requirements 

ACADEMIC PROGRESS POLICY 

In order to be eligible for financial aid, recipients must maintain satisfactory 
academic progress toward a degree. (Satisfactory academic progress is defined in 
the following section.) If a student does not maintain satisfactory academic 
progress or fails to attend classes, prepare and submit required class work, or take 
required examinations, financial aid will be suspended. 

If a student whose financial aid has been suspended for any of the above 



Finances 269 



reasons feels that unusual and unavoidable circumstances led to this suspension, 
the suspension may be appealed to the Academic Progress Committee. This policy 
is generally applied to financial aid from institutional and private sources as well 
as federal programs. 

ACADEMIC PROGRESS DEFINITION 

According to the 1986 Higher Education Amendments, all financial aid 
recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress towards a degree, as 
measured both qualitatively anid quantitatively, in order to continue to receive 
financial aid. ^~"^ 

A financial aid recipient's progress at Southern Adventist University will be 
based on the students enrollment status which is determined by the number of 
hours attempted. Academic progress will be measured by the number of hours the 
student has successfully completed during the academic year.. 

A financial aid recipient will be expected to complete not less than the 
minimum hours required by his/her enrollment status of: 

1. Full time 12 hours or more/semester 24 hours or more/year 

2. 3/4 time 9-11 hours/semester 18-22 hours/year 

3. Vi time 6-8 hours/semester 1 2-1 6 hours/year 

This requirement allows a student the equivalent often full-time semesters to 
complete a four-year degree, and the equivalent of six full-time semesters to 
complete a two-year degree. 

For purposes of academic record-keeping only, students enrolled for 12 or 
more semester hours and students in the last semester of their senior year who are 
taking all the courses required for graduation (but no fewer than 8 semester hours) 
will be defined as full-time students. 

FORMULA FOR ACADEMIC PROGRESS 

Enrollment status (as outlined above) x 12 hours (full-time equivalent) - hours 
needed for progress. A student who fails to meet this formula will have until June 
30 of the award year to successfully complete the required hours. No federal aid 
is available for make-up hours. 

For the purpose of this policy, a student must also maintain a cumulative and 
resident grade point average above the suspension levels as stated in the following 
schedules: 

Cumulative Required CPA Level 

Semester Hours (Includes Resident and Cumulative CPA)

A student's financial aid will be suspended if s/he does not maintain 
satisfactory academic progress as set forth above. 



270 Finances 



FINANCIAL AID PROBATION POLICY 

1 . Students who fail to maintain satisfactory academic progress will be placed on 
financial aid probation the following semester. The recipient must see a 
financial aid counselor before aid will be released for the probationary 
semester. This aid is subject to adjustment or cancellation. 

2. A minimum Southern Adventist University and cumulative CPA as listed in the 
requirements above must be attained by the end of the probation semester or 
financial aid will be suspended. 

PROCEDURE FOR APPEAL AND REINSTATEMENT OF FINANCIAL AID 
Students may submit a written appeal to the Academic Progress Committee 

describing the circumstances which contributed to their failure to make academic 

progress. This appeal must also include an outlined program of commitment to 

meet measurable satisfactory academic requirements. 

When financial aid is suspended, a request for reinstatement may be made 

when the student has completed a minimum of 12 additional semester hours and 

has met the satisfactory academic requirements. 

Financial Need Requirements 

FINANCIAL NEED ANALYSIS 

The financial aid program is administered in conjunction with the nationally- 
established policy and philosophy that the parents are the primary and 
responsible source for helping a student to meet his/her educational costs. 
Financial aid is available to help fill the gap between the student's own resources 
(parental contribution, summer earnings, and savings) and the total cost of 
attending Southern Adventist University. The amount of parental contribution is 
based on the family's net income, number of dependents, allowable expenses, 
indebtedness, and assets. The Family Financial Need Analysis from the American 
College Testing Program is used in determining a student's eligibility for financial 
aid. 

Exceptions to the financial need requirements are private scholarships awarded 
on the basis of academic achievement 

FINANCIAL AID OVERAWARDS 

When financial aid recipients receive additional resources not included in the 
financial aid award letter, it is the student's responsibility to report these funds to 
the Student Finance Office. Federal regulations prohibit "overawards;* therefore, 
when the total of all resources exceeds the allowable student budget, financial aid 
awards must be adjusted. When financial aid funds have already been credited to 
the student's statement, any refunds due or overawards will be charged to the 
student's account. 

Enrollment Requirements 

Eligibility for Southern Adventist University funds is based upon the number of 
hours being taken on the Southern Adventist University campus. 

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Applications 

The following documents must be submitted annually to apply for the federal, 
(including federal loans) state, and institutional aid programs: 



Finances 271 



1 . The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or Federal Aid Renewal 
Application (FARA) for returning students. This application should be mailed 
directly to the Federal Aid Programs in the attached envelope. 

2. The Southern Adventist University (SAU) application for financial aid. This 
application should be mailed to SAU Student Finance Office 

3. A financial aid transcript from the school attended first semester. (A financial 
aid transcript is required only of students who attended other colleges or 
universities first semester and transferred to SAU second semester.) A financial 
aid transcript is required even if no aid was received. 

4. Copies of parents' income tax return (exact signed copies of all schedules and 
W-2 forms sent to IRS). These copies should be mailed to SAU with the SAU 
application for financial aid. 

5. Copies of student's signed income tax return including W-2 forms. These 
copies should be mailed to SAU with the SAU application for financial aid. 

6. A Stafford Loan application, with a preferred lender indicated. A list of 
preferred lenders is supplied with the loan application. The student's section 
only should be completed and mailed to SAU Student Finance Office. 

Application packets are available in January of each year and may be obtained 
by contacting Southern Adventist University Student Finance Office. Students are 
urged to complete applications as early as possible after the family income tax 
returns have been completed. Income tax returns only have to be completed, not 
necessarily mailed to the IRS, before submitting the financial aid application. 

Transfer Student Financial Aid Applications 

Financial aid for students transferring from other institutions will be determined 
by their academic standing, which will be calculated on all hours they have 
attempted. Students with a GPA below the policy stated above will be on financial 
aid probation, provided that they were eligible for continuing aid at the institution 
from which they transferred. Deletion of transfer hours from Southern Adventist 
University academic records may affect a student's financial aid eligibility, 
depending on the number of hours deleted. Any change in academic program, 
such as changing from a baccalaureate degree program to an associate degree 
program, or from an associate degree program to a one-year certificate degree 
program, may affect a students eligibility for financial aid. 

If financial aid has been suspended at the previous institution, the student must 
follow Southern Adventist University's procedure for appeal and reinstatement of 
financial aid. 

Transient Student Financial Aid Applications 

Financial aid for transient students is available when a student receives a 
transient student permission letter from the Records Office. 

Eligibility for Federal Pell Grant and Federal Family Education Loans (Stafford, 
Unsubsidized Stafford, Parent PLUS) will be based on total hours enrolled at both 
institutions. Costs at both institutions will be a factor in determining eligibility. 

FINANCIAL AID AWARD AND DISBURSEMENT PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Award Procedures 

A Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to each applicant only after 
Southern Adventist University's Student Finance Office receives all the necessary 
documents to process financial aid, including the FAFSA results (electronically 
received from the federal processor). To confirm and reserve the funds offered, 
students should return the signed acceptance of the offer within ten days of 



272 Finances 



receipt. 

Financial aid awards are made on a rolling basis, as long as funds are available, 
with the neediest students receiving priority. The financial aid award package will 
usually consist of: 1) Federal Work/Study, 2) Federal student loans, 3) federal, 
state, private or institutional grants or scholarships. 

Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds 

Financial aid awards are disbursed equally each semester. The disbursement 
will show as a credit on a student's account. Loan funds received from the federal 
loan programs will in most cases be automatically credited to the student's 
account. In the cases where the funds are received in the form of physical checks, 
the checks will be available for signing in the Disbursement Office. In addition, 
an entrance interview is required for first-time borrowers prior to receiving their 
loan funds. An exit interview is required when a student graduates or terminates 
his/her studies at SAU. A student's diploma and/or academic transcripts will not 
be released until an exit interview is completed. 

Financial Aid Overaward Procedures 

When financial aid recipients receive additional resources not included in the 
financial aid award letter, it is the student's responsibility to report these funds to 
the Student Finance Office. Federal regulations prohibit 'overawards;* therefore, 
when the total of all resources exceeds the allowable student budget, financial aid 
awards must be adjusted. When financial aid funds have already been credited to 
the student's statement, any refunds due or overawards will be charged to the 
student's account. 

FINANCIAL AID REFUND AND REPAYMENT POLICIES 

Financial Aid Refund Policy 

The tuition refund policy for students withdrawing from classes is outlined on 
page 252. 

Since financial aid is considered to be used first for direct educational costs 
(tuition, fees, room, board, and books), when a student withdraws from all classes 
and under the refund policy receives a refund of these charges, any credit will be 
used to reimburse financial aid programs first, and any remaining credit will be 
refunded to the student. The refund amount will be determined by comparing the 
federal refund policy with SAU refund policy and making calculations according 
to the policy which gives the largest refund to the student. 

The amount that must be repaid for Federal Title IV funds and other federal and 
state aid funds is determined in the following manner: 

All financial aid posted to a student's account and cash payments credited to 
the account for SAU costs are deducted from the total charges for the period of 
enrollment to determine the amount of unpaid charges. 

After determining the unpaid charges, a federal refund policy calculation is 
used to determine the amount of financial aid SAU is allowed to retain, the 
amount that must be repaid to the federal financial aid programs and the amount 
refunded to the student. (Examples of these calculations are available in the 
Student Finance Office). 

According to regulations, refunds due to Federal Title IV programs must be 
allocated according to the following priority: 



Finances 273 



1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans 

2. Subsidized Federal Stafford loans 

3. Parent Federal (PLUS) loans 

4. Federal Perkins loans 

5. Federal Pell Grant program 

6. Federal SEOG program 

7. Other Title IV aid programs 

8. Any other Federal or State aid programs 

9. Student/Parent. 

Financial Aid Repayment Policy 

There are specific repayment policies for students who withdraw completely 
from SAU and have received financial aid in excess of their incurred educational 
costs. An example would be the student who received a Stafford Loan and did not 
use the full amount for educational costs. A student owing a repayment to any 
federally funded student aid program cannot receive any type of federal student 
aid for future enrollment periods until repayments have been made. 

Deferment of Financial Aid Repayment for Student Missionaries/Task Force 
Workers 

Any student desiring to serve as a Student Missionary or in a Task Force 
position needs to apply through the Chaplain's Office. The General Conference 
policy requires the completion of the course Student Missions Orientation Class, 
NOND 099, prior to placement in a volunteer position. The orientation class is 
taught the last nine weeks of the second semester. Students who register for 
NOND 099 will not receive any academic credit hours. 

Those students who desire deferment on their student loan payments during 
their mission service placement must enroll in NOND 227 Christian Service I, 6 
hours, aod NOND 228 Christian Service II, 6 hours. 

To receive 12 hours of academic credit, the student must complete a full 
academic year of service. Students enrolled in NOND 227 and 228 must have 
taken NOND 099 as a prerequisite. A maximum of 12 hours is available during 
the year of service. Tuition is charged at ten percent of the current rate. Specific 
details regarding academic assignments may be obtained from the Chaplain's 
Office. 

Before final authorization may be obtained, all students going as Student 
Missionaries or Task Force workers must be cleared by the Student Finance Office. 
The section 'Family Rebate* has relevant information fora Student Missionary/Task 
Force Worker who has a sibling attending Southern Adventist University."
