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. 

MISSION STATEMENT 
The Mission 

Southern Adventist University, serving local, national, and international 
constituents, provides learning in a Christian environment where all are 
encouraged to pursue truth, wellness, and a life of service. 

■ 
Core Values 

• A Christ-centered campus 

• Academic and professional excellence in a distinctive Seventh-day 
Adventist environment— theologically, socially, morally, and intellectually 

• Demonstrated hospitality and service 

• Affordable education 

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. 

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. 



Southern Adventist University is operated by the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. 



This Is Southern Adventist University 7 



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. 

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

SETTING

1 2 Admissions 



ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 

Students who plan to teach in elementary or secondary schools should refer to 
the School of Education and Psychology section of the catalog for admission 
requirements to the Teacher Education Program. 

ADMISSION TO THE SCHOOL OF BUSINESS AND MANAGEMENT 

Students majoring in business and management should refer to the School of 
Business and Management for requirements pertaining to the admission into the 
School. 

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 
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 
46). 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. 



Admissions 13 



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. 

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 
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 and Advisement 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: (1) the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) 
paper-pencil test; (2) the TOEFL Computer Based Test (CBT). Students whose 
TOEFL score is 550 (CBT 213) meet the official admission level, but students with 
scores between 450 and 549 (CBT 133-212) 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 
(CBT 1 33) 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.) 



14 Admissions 



According to the current immigration laws, international students with student 
visas may work on campus provided that employment is available, and provided 
that the student is enrolled in a full course of study (minimum of 12 hours) for 
each semester in attendance and is making progress to the completion of a degree. 
On-campus employment is limited up to 20 hours per week when there are 
regular classes held. Such employment may be full time (up to 40 hours per week) 
during school vacation periods provided that the student intends to register for the 
subsequent academic semester. The Human Resources Office will monitor hours 
worked and notify the student and the campus employer when a student works in 
excess of 20 hours per week. Spouses may work only if they have student visas 
of their own or have immigrant visas. 

International students on non-immigrant visas are required by law to secure 
permission before accepting any off-campus employment. 

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

APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR ADMISSION 

♦ Prospective students should request application forms from the Office of 
Admissions or can apply on the Internet at www.southern.edu. 

♦ Completed applications should be returned to the Office of Admissions with an 
application fee of $25. 

♦ 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.

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. 

A student must reapply, through the Office of Admissions, if they have been out 
of school for one semester or longer. The regular application fee of $25 will be

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. 

CAMPUS SAFETY 

The Campus Safety department safeguards campus residents, property, and 
facilities. Its responsibilities include fire prevention and detection, traffic control, 
campus escort service, assistance with vehicle jump starts and lockouts, vehicle 
registration, card entry, transportation to the airport, bus terminal and medical 
appointments (fees charged per transport), the maintenance of campus safety and 
order. Campus Safety is also responsible for the public address system, recording 
of programs and classroom presentations as per request. Campus Safety is located 
in room 108 of Lynn Wood Hall. 

CAREER SERVICES 

Key elements in selecting an academic major and career are discovering one's 
interests and abilities. The Counseling and Testing Center invites students to 
discuss career options, self-assessment, aptitudes, interests, and goals with a 
counselor. Career services are available to all currently enrolled students and 
graduates. Appointments can be made by visiting or calling the Counseling and 
Testing Center. 

The Counseling and Testing Center offers assistance in r6sum£ 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. 

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 Adventists 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 
positions. The Student Missionary assignments from the world divisions are 
published by the General Conference Adventist Volunteer Center on their web 
site. Students interested in any mission or Task Force position may work through 
the Chaplain'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 



Student Life and Services 1 7 



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. 

CONCERT-LECTURE SERIES 

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

CONVOCATION 

In private parochial education it has been shown that elimination of residence 
hall worships and 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 spiritual 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 
spiritual emphasis weeks and the weekend church services assist in the spiritual 
growth of the students. Students are required to attend these services regularly. 
Failure to do so will jeopardize the student's current status and readmission 
privileges. 

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. 



DINING 

For the promotion of student health and enjoyment, Southern Adventist 
University provides a complete vegetarian cafeteria service, organized to serve 
student 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. The Food Service Department 
also operates two vegetarian fast-food shops on the campus. K.R.*s Place fs 
convenient^ located in the Student Center and the Campus Kitchen is at the 
nearby Fleming Plaza.

DISCIPLINE 

Discipline refers to any action taken by Southern Adventist University relative 
to a student's social standing. All student disciplinary procedures are under the 
direction of the vice-president for Student Services, who works in general with the 
residence hall deans in handling student disciplinary cases. The vice-president for 
Student Services may separate a student from the school, suspend a student, deny 
re-admission, or place a student on citizenship probation. For further details, 
consult the Student Handbook. 

HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service is directed by a nurse practitioner under the supervision of 
a physician and the vice president for Student Services. The nurse practitioner 
works during the day and two live-in registered nurses take turns being on-call 
during the evenings, nights, and weekends, for emergencies. The physician will 
see students at Health Service at pre-arranged times. 

Health Service is available to all students taking six or more hours (three hours 
in the summer), all residence hall occupants, and all students with school 
insurance including their spouses and dependents ages 1 2 and above who are on 
school insurance. 

An infirmary is available to all residence hall occupants at no charge. Visits for 
minor illnesses or injuries, wound care, blood pressure checks, and equipment 
loans are free. Visits requiring prescriptions or expanded medical care, physicals, 
lab tests, immunizations, and medications or supplies will have a charge. Health 
Service may bill some health insurances but the students should plan to file their 
own insurance. Health Service charges and prescriptions from Winn Dixie 
Pharmacy may be placed on the student's account. 

Health Service makes referrals and arranges transportation to area dentists, 
doctors agencies, and hospitals. 

University policy requires all students to have adequate health insurance. This 
can be done at registration (a) by enrolling in the student injury and sickness 
insurance plan, or (b) by showing proof of coverage by another adequate policy 
and signing a waiver card. All international students including spouses and 
dependents must purchase the Student Accident and Sickness Insurance plan. All 
students living in the residence hall or student family housing must purchase the 
insurance or show proof of coverage by another policy. Spouses of students and 
those taking less than six hours may choose to purchase the plan. If a student is 
taking six credit hours or more and has not signed a waiver card, he/she is 
automatically enrolled in the student insurance plan. A policy brochure 
describing complete benefits and terms is available prior to registration. 

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 catalog 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 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 



Student Life and Services 1 9 



occasions are also provided when students may meet faculty members and fellow 
students. All new freshman and transferring students are required to attend the 
orientation program. 

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 
them while enrolled at Southern Adventist University, without compensation. All 
negatives, positives, and prints shall constitute Southern Adventist University 
property, solely and completely. 

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

Students with disabilities should contact the Center for Learning Success when 
they arrive on campus by calling ext. 2574 or 2838 or by visiting the office on the 
second floor of the library. Southern Adventist University is in compliance with 
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and is dedicated to the elimination of 
architectural and prejudicial barriers which prevent any qualified person from 
attending. Furthermore, SAU has established the Center for Learning Success to 
assist in advocating for reasonable accommodations. However, the University 
does not assume responsibility for providing accommodations or special services 
to students who have not voluntarily and confidentially identified themselves as 
having a qualifying disabilities or to those who have not provided the Center for 
Learning Success with appropriate documentation of their disabilities. 

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. Three 
residence halls that serve the needs of our students are: Talge Hall, Thatcher Hall, 
and Thatcher South. 

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. Those 
over the age 23 may be asked to find alternate housing either in Student Family 
Housing or off-campus. 

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS 

The Director of Student Life and Activities plans social activities in consultation 
with the Student Activities Committee. Additional social programs are sponsored 
during the year by clubs and organizations. 

In addition to the Student Association, more than 30 campus organizations 
provide opportunities for enrichment, leadership training, and enjoyment. They 
include church-related organizations— Campus Ministries; Student Ministerial 
Association; clubs related to academic interests sponsored by the departments; 
social clubs— Sigma Theta Chi (women), Upsilon Delta Phi (men), Black Christian 
Union, Christian Veterans Association and the Latin American Club, and special 
interest or hobby clubs.

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. 

Each student is expected to become acquainted 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 administration are of equal force with those listed in 
official publications. 

STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

Every undergraduate 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. The association affords 
opportunities for leadership development and for cooperation in achieving the 
objectives of Southern Adventist University. 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 and responsibilities 
of the officers and the detailed organization of the Student Association are outlined 
in the Student Association Constitution and Bylaws. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE 

Southern Adventist University encourages every student to balance work and 
study. 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/she should be able to obtain employment on campus. Students seeking 
employment should contact the Human Resources/Student Employment Office. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS AND PRODUCTIONS 

As a vital part of its community of learning, Southern Adventist University 
sponsors the production of a variety of media by its students. When exercised in 
the spirit of Christian fellowship, responsible freedom of expression and debate of 
issues enhances the university community. Editors and producers are encouraged 
to express themselves? freely within the parameters of the philosophy, standards, 
and mission statement of the University. 

Student media are the voices of both students and faculty, representing the 
visual and creative arts, both in print and non-print formats. The student media 



Student Life and Services 2 1 



provides a marketplace of ideas in a university environment. Student media serve 
not only the current residents of the campus, but also document the culture and 
history of the institution. 

Approved student-produced media on campus are the Festival Studios 
(multimedia year in review), Joker (pictorial directory), Numerique (student phone 
directory), Southern Accent (student newspaper), Southern Memories (yearbook), 
and Campus Chatter (weekly announcements). Southern Adventist University is 
the legal publisher of all of the approved student-produced media.

intended to augment the educational and cultural experience of students at 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 
Skills, of General Education must be met before enrollment in upper division 
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 studentsin 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/school, 
Community Service Awards are presented each year at the annual Awards 
Convocation 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.

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 Consortium 
for Nonprofit Administration, Education, and Training 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. See page 155 for further 
information. 

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 
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 one 
three-hour class for four semesters if they are enrolled full-time. The "per hour" 
rate for a 1 6-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 
and 452. Refer to the scholarship on page 287.

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 



Academic Policies 39 



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. New 
students are required to participate in the orientation activities. 

Late Registration, Permission to register late must be obtained from the Director 
of Records and Advisement. 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. 

To make program changes, students must obtain the appropriate change of 
registration voucher at the Records and Advisement 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 "¥:* 

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 



40 Academic Policies 

a week. A laboratory period of two and one-half to three hours is equal to one 
class period. For every semester hour of credit a minimum of fifteen contact hours 
should be scheduled. Final exam periods may count as one contact hour. 
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. 

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

Course Load Maximum Work Load 

1 6 hours 16 hours 

14 hours 20 hours 

1 2 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. Full-time students are assigned an academic adviser from 
their major field and are required to consult with their advisers 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 and Advisement 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. 






Academic Policies 41 



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 

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 
(PEAG). 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 *r (Incomplete) because of illness or other 
unavoidable delay. Students who are eligible for an incomplete must secure from 
the Records and Advisement Office the proper form and file the application with 
the teacher to receive an incomplete. There is a charge of $10 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. ff 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 4.00 grade points per hour C 2.00 grade points per hour 

A- 3.70 grade points per hour C- 1 .70 grade points per hour 

B + 3.30 grade points per hour D+ 1 .30 grade points per hour 

B 3.00 grade points per hour D 1 .00 grade points per hour 

B- 2.70 grade points per hour D- 0.70 grade points per hour 

C+ 2.30 grade points per hour F 0.00 grade points per hour 

WF 0.00 grade points per hour 



42 Academic Policies 



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, e-mail 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 and 
Advisement Office. The Director of Records and Advisement 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 



Academic Policies 43 



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: 

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 as well as 
comply with the Academic Support Group Program. 

The objectives of the Academic Support Group are to help students improve 
their study skills and facilitate accelerated development of effective study habits 
using a variety of methods and tools. The Academic Support Group Program has 
open seminars that meet once a week for six consecutive weeks. One six-week 
program will meet per semester. The facilitator will monitor the progress of the 
students on academic probation and report the progress to the Academic Dean. 

Candidates for a baccalaureate degree must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.00 
after 55 semester hours have been attempted. Candidates for an associate or 
certificate program must have a GPA of 2.00 before beginning their final semester. 
Veterans enrolled for baccalaureate degrees, associate degrees, or certificate 
programs must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.00, or they will not 
be certified for veterans benefits. Veterans may be certified for repeat of *F* grades 
or for a major that requires a specific minimum grade and the grade received was 
lower than specified. 

Government regulations require all financial aid recipients to maintain 
satisfactory academic progress towards a degree as measured both qualitatively 
and quantitatively in order to receive financial aid. This requirement applies to the 



44 Academic Policies 



entire enrollment at Southern Adventist University— even periods during which a 
student does not receive financial aid. Failure to comply with this requirement 
may result in a student becoming ineligible for financial aid. 

This policy defines the minimum standards for eligibility for state and/or federal 
financial aid. 

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: 

Cumulative Credit Hours Attempted Cumulative Grqife Point Average 

0-24 1.50 or above 

25-54 1.75 or above 

55 or above 2.00 or above 

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 292, "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 and Advisement for consideration of their case after obtaining 
the advice and signature of the department chair or school dean of their major. 
The petition must 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 and 
Advisement of the action on petitions. Petition forms are available from the 
Records and Advisement 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 



Academic Policies 45 



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' 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 betaken 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 
above, may require a fee of $65 per examination. All rescheduling requests will 
be made on a form available at the office of the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. 

Convocation. Convocations are held each Thursday at 11:00 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 convocation 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 convocation must be 
approved by the Vice President for Student Services. 

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



46 Academic Policies 



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 $50 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 (CBT 213). 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 
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/school 
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 



Academic Policies 47 



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. A challenge test may 
not be taken if the student has audited the class. 

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 
student's 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 and Advisement 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 
of *D* or *F* while in residence may not be repeated by correspondence. No 
correspondence credit will be entered on the student's 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 and Advisement 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. 

Practicgrps: 

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. 



48 Academic Policies 



Internships : 

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. 

TRANSIENT STUDENT 

A Southern Adventist University student acquires transient student status when 
s/he is granted permission through the Southern Adventist University Records and 
Advisement 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 
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 service and individual requests requiring an excess 



Academic Policies 49 



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 and Advisement 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 282. 

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 operates off-campus sites for the purpose of 
offering baccalaureate degrees. These sites and degrees are: 

Adventist College of Management B.B.A.

50 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/school [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, Safawo Gullo, Brent Hamstra, 

Joel Ongaro, Keith Snyder 
Program Coordinator: Brenda Janzen 
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 55-56). 

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: Brent Hamstra 

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 
1 3-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. 



54 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 4.00 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 is available through 
the University medical technology adviser. Acceptance criteria, pre-clinical course 
requirements, application procedures, tuition for the senior year, and program 
formats may vary at each approved clinical program.

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

PRE-CYTOTECHNOLOGY 
Adviser: Brendajanzen 

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. 

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as 
well as Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program 
can be modified to meet the requirements of other schools. For a complete description 
of Southern's general education requirements, refer to pages 29-32.

PRE-DENTAL HYGIENE 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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 educate patients in ways to develop and maintain 
good 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. 

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as well 
as Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can

PRE-NUTR1TION AND DIETETICS 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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 promoting 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. 

Southern Adventist University offers associate degree programs which provide the 
prerequisite courses for entrance into the final two years of the bachelor degree 
programs of both Andrews University and Loma Linda University. These programs can 
be modified to meet requirements of other schools as well. 

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as well

PRE-PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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. 

The entrance requirements to physician assistant clinical programs vary considerably 
from school to school. College credit requirements range from two years 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.

PRE-SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY & AUDIOLOGY 
Adviser: Brendajanzen 

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. 

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as well as 
Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can be 
modified to meet the requirements of other schools. For a complete description of 
Southern's general education requirements, refer to pages 29-32.

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. 

A major in Biology is an excellent starting point for numerous careers which are 
both rewarding and challenging. With a 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. A biology degree is also 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. The 
department offers courses which include field experiences in Indonesia, Canada, 
Bahamas, Belize, Smoky Mountains, and the Okefenokee Swamp. The Tennessee 
Aquarium in nearby Chattanooga provides additional learning resources. The 
department is also affiliated with Walla Walla College's Rosario Beach Biological 
Field Station (see page 24). 

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 23), as well as a premedical preceptorship program (see page 
264). 

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: Rick Halterman, Bradley Hyde, Eduardo Urbina, Brian Willard

The rapidly expanding field of computing continues to demand an ever- 
increasing number of technically educated people. The type of computer 
education needed also continues to shift. Computer graduates this year will be 
taking jobs, which were not even available, when they entered college four years 
ago. Southern Adventist University offers several computer curricula designed to 
meet the needs of students desiring to enter the computing field, but coming to the 
University with a wide-range of interests and abilities. 

The Bachelor/MSE program is offered for exceptional students who wish to 
complete both the bachelor degree and the Master of Software Engineering degree 
in as little as five years. Students desiring this option should consult with the 
School of Computing early in their academic career. After completing 96 semester 
credits (normally after six semesters), they should apply for permission to take 
graduate courses for graduate credit. Students receiving this permission must meet 
all the criteria for admission to the graduate school and MSE program specified in 
the graduate catalog except the one requiring an undergraduate degree. They will 
be limited to six hours of graduate courses during each of the next two semesters. 
During this fourth year, Bachelor/MSE students will still be undergraduate students. 
Upon successful completion of at least nine hours of graduate courses, the student 
may apply to and be accepted in the graduate school. Bachelor/MSE students 
must complete all requirements for the bachelor degree given in the undergraduate 
catalog as well as all requirements for the Master of Software Engineering degree 
listed in the graduate catalog. There will be no double crediting of courses; i.e., 
credit for a course will either be counted for undergraduate credit or graduate 
credit, never both. Students completing the Bachelor/MSE program may receive 
both the bachelor degree and the Master of Software Engineering degree at the 
same graduation. 

The B.S. degree in computer science is designed to prepare you for a wide 
range of computing professions. Software engineers, software developers, systems 
analysts, programmer/analysts, network engineers, database administrators, and 
data specialists are among the professions considered computer scientists. These 
computing professionals are distinguished by the high level of theoretical expertise 
and innovation they apply to complex problems and to the application of new 
technologies. This curriculum follows the guideline for computer science degrees 
developed by the ACM and IEEE, Curriculum '91. 

The B.A. degree in computer science allows you to combine a computing 
degree with a minor or with a major in another academic area offering a B.A., for 
instance English, history, or music. This combination is useful in occupations such 
as teaching high school. 

The B.S. in computer information systems combines classes in computing and 
systems management with classes in accounting, economics, and business 



94 School of Computing 



administration. With a few years experience you'll be equipped to manage a data 
processing department in a hospital, business, or industry. This program follows 
the curriculum developed by ACM, A1S, and AITP, IS '97. 

The B.S. in computer systems administration is designed to prepare graduates 
who will administer the complex computer systems and networks now common 
in the business world. It requires a minimum of programming, mathematics, and 
business courses, while concentrating on the technical issues needed to administer 
and support modern network computing systems and software. An A.S. in 
computer systems administration provides a two-year program designed for entry 
level positions in this rapidly growing field. 

ADMISSIONS 

Admission to the School of Computing is required before graduation with a 
major offered by the School of Computing. 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 GPA of 2.50 or better. 

Students pursuing a major offered by the School of Computing should apply for 
admission at the end of the freshman year. 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 ir^prove 
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. 

ASSESSMENT 

In the spring of the senior year all B.A. and B.S. 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. 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. 



School of Computing 95 



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.

PHILOSOPHY AND OBJECTIVES 

The School of Education and Psychology 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 and psychology 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 teachers' and psychologists' preparation. 
The unit further confirms the belief that teachers and psychologists should be good 
examples in health, intellect, and character. 

STATEMENT OF MISSION 

The mission of the School of Education and Psychology at Southern Adventist 
University is to prepare professional educators and psychologists 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 humanity. 

The School of Education and Psychology is approved by the Tennessee State 
Board of Education for the preparation of secondary and elementary teachers and 
is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education 
(NCATE).

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

Admission tp Southern Adventist University does npt automatically gnrpll 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. 

During the sophomore year, and after having met the numbered criteria 
listed below, 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. Show evidence of physical, mental, spiritual and moral fitness. 

3. Possess an overall grade point average of 2.75 or above. 

4. Have successfully completed EDUC 1 35 Introduction to Education, 
and ENGL 101-102 with a minimum grade of C. 

5. Possess an enhanced ACT/SAT composite score of 22 OR have 
passed all three sections of the PRAXIS I (Pre-Professional Skills Test) 
which is the entrance competency test required by the State of 
Tennessee. The ACT composite score of 22 or above will EXEMPT 
the PPST. 

6. Have taken the 1 6 Personality Factor Test. 

7. Have submitted a formal application which includes a short 
autobiography in your own handwriting containing anecdotal 
information on why you decided to pursue a career in teaching.

Education Faculty. 



School of Education and Psychology 111 



10. Have successfully completed an initial interview with the Teacher 
Education Faculty. 

1 1 . Have signed a felony statement as part of the interview process. 
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 
secondary teacher. As a teacher candidate, the applicant will be given an 
opportunity to interact with the Candidacy Committee in a non-threatening 
atmosphere. During the interview the candidate can strengthen his/her 
commitment to teaching or express his/her concerns and questions about 
the teaching profession. 

Retention in the teacher education program is contingent on successful 
completion of courses attempted and maintenance of the academic standard 
required for initial admission to the program. Teacher candidates are 
expected to maintain consistent personal representation of the standards 
and objectives of Southern Adventist University and the teacher education 
program. 

C. Authorization to do Student Teaching 

After acceptance into the Teacher Education Program and before the first 
semester of the senior year, the teacher candidate must file a formal 
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. 

Prior to admission to the professional semester and student teaching, the 
student will take and pass the Praxis II— both the appropriate section of the 
Principles of Learning and Teaching, and the particular speciality test(s) for 
the licensure area(s). 

The following criteria are considered for each applicant: 

1. Completion of all professional education courses 

2. Cumulative GPA of 2.75 

Major Studies GPA of 2.75 
Professional Education GPA of 2.75 

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. Completion and passing of PRAXIS II examinations 

7. Proof of current certification in First Aid/CPR 

8. Completion of a student teaching interview 

9. Presentation of the on-going professional portfolio as part of the 
interview process 

10. Approval of the Education and Psychology faculty. 

1 1 . Approval of the Teacher Education Council. 



112 School of Education and Psychology 



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 44). 
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: 

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 following PRAXIS II Examinations: 

(1) Principles of Learning and Teaching, and (2) appropriate specialty area(s). 

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 



School of Education and Psychology 113 



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 
following PRAXIS II Examinations: (1) Principles of Learning and Teaching, 
and (2) appropriate specialty area(s) 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 138 Adventist Heritage 3 hours 

RELB Biblical Studies 3 hours 

RELL Upper division elective , 3 hours 

HLED 173 Health for Life 2 hours 

PSYC 128 Developmental Psychology 3 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 
t 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 29-32. 

B. Professional Education: 

Elementary : The courses for the three elementary programs are 
included with the degree requirements listed on pages 1 1 5-1 1 7 of this 
catalog. 

Secondary : The following courses are required for secondary teaching 
certification. In order to be eligible for certification, students must have a 
minimum grade point average of 2.75 in the major, professional 
education, and cumulative areas.

C. 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 
Language Arts leading to licensure K-8, or a B.S. in Science and Math 
Studies leading to licensure K-8. See listings of course sequences on pages 
11 5-1 17 of this bulletin. 

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

Biology Mathematics 

Chemistry Music 

Education & Psychology Physical Education & Health 

English Physics 

History 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 
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 and 
Advisement 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, 
NCATE, 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. 



School of Education and Psychology 115 



Teacher education students must meet any and all such additional 
requirements mandated by NAD, NCATE, 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 student's classroom 



School of Education and Psychology 119 



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 Ev aluation 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 108.

Engineering Studies 



Engineering Studies Committee: 

Henry Kuhlman (Chair), Ken Caviness 

Southern Adventist University Physics Department 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 29- 
32). 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 

Adjunct Faculty: Craig Hadley 

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.

The additional twelve hours will be chosen from remaining history courses, six hours 
of which must be upper division. A minimum of three hours must be chosen from each of 
the American and European areas. Three hours of political science may be taken in lieu of

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 
264. 

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.

NTERDISCIPLINARY 



The student-designed major is an interdisciplinary program available to any 
student who wishes to develop a more individualized program of study than those 
provided by existing majors. It is a coherent program of study that crosses 
disciplinary lines. One of the major disciplines must be chosen as the primary 
discipline to provide a coherent focus for the major. In planning the 
interdisciplinary major, the student selects an advisory committee of three faculty 
members, two from the primary discipline (including the department/school chair 
or dean) and one of the secondary disciplines. The Associate Vice-President of 
Academic Administration also serves on the advisory committee. 

All students interested in developing an interdisciplinary major or in applying 
to the major must meet with the Associate Vice-President of Academic 
Administration. The requirements are intended to ensure that the interdisciplinary 
major is integrally related to the goals of a liberal arts education and appropriately 
reflect the disciplines involved. Each course of study is approved only on a case- 
by<ase basis. 

Interdisciplinary major is a privilege granted by the University to students who 
display unusual motivation to study an area not included among its degree 
programs. Although the individual student is responsible for the design and 
planning of the program, he or she must fulfill the following requirements: 

1. Completion of general education requirements (including the intermediate 
level of a foreign language for B.A. degree). 

2. The advisory committee must approve the admission to the major. 
Applications must be made no later than fall semester of the junior year. An 
applicant should have a minimum grade point average of 3.50. Continuation 
in the program requires a grade point average of at least 3.30 each semester. 

3. Majors will be approved only where university faculty and courses can 
provide a degree program of high quality. New courses will not be created 
for a student; however, a directed study course may be provided. In special 
cases up to nine (9) hours of transfer credit from another institution may 
apply to a major, particularly of specialized courses not available at SAU. 

4. Bachelor of Art degree majors must have 30 hours, of which a minimum of 
14 hours will be upper division. A second major or a minor from SAU's 
degree programs must be included. 

5. Bachelor of Science majors must have 42 hours, of which a minimum of 18 
hours will be upper division. 

6. Courses for the major shall be chosen from at least two and not more than 
four disciplines. 

7. Both B.A. and B.S. majors must include a three (3) hour research project 
(accomplished under a directed study number). Students will provide a 
defense of their project before their advisory committee. 

8. in order to graduate, the student must have a minimum of 124 semester 
hours, 40 upper division hours, and three writing classes. 

At least 30 of the semester hours in the major must be taken in residence after 
the student's application and proposal for the major have been approved by the 
advisory committee. A grade of C or better must be obtained in all courses in the 
interdisciplinary major. 






Interdisciplinary 145 



For the students who design their major, their transcript will give the degree and 
major: 'Interdisciplinary* with a concentration in whatever the title is defined. 

It should be noted that any students receiving VA education benefits must have 
their interdisciplinary major and course of study submitted to and approved by the 
Tennessee Higher Education Commission as the State Approving Agency before 
certification to the VA.

School of Journalism and Communication 1 47 



The School of Journalism and Communication provides an educational 
environment in which future leaders in telecommunications, 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 School offers the Bachelor of Arts Degree with majors in Journalism (News 
Editorial), Intercultural Communication, Broadcast Journalism, and Public 
Relations, a Bachelor of Science Degree with various emphases, and a Bachelor 
of Science Degree in Nonprofit Administration and Development, and an 
Associate of Science Degree in Media Technology. Minors are also available in 
Advertising, Broadcast Journalism, Broadcast Production, Intercultural 
Communication, Journalism (News Editorial), Sales, Public Relations, and Visual 
Communications. 

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. 

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 a degree in Intercultural Communication may find 
work in multi-national corporations, non-profit organizations, government 
agencies, and a variety of religious and education institutions. Students who 
pursue this degree are prepared to seek employment as communication specialists 
in culturally diverse settings. 

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. 

A degree in Web Publishing is designed to prepare students who want to design 
and/or maintain web pages. The program is structured to accommodate both 
those interested in pursuing web publishing within a company as well as those 
who want to use entrepreneurial skills in running their own web design company. 

All of the school'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, desktop publishing, or web design. 

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 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 Sales minor, a student multiplies job opportunities in the 
field of broadcasting. 



1 48 School of Journalism and Communication 



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 
School of Journalism and Communication, and fulfills General Education 
requirements. 

INTERNSHIPS AND ON-THE-JOB TRAINING 

Because of the strong relationships which the school has developed with the 
Chattanooga area mass media, students in journalism, broadcasting, 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 school. 

An Advisory Council and a Consulting Board advise the school in providing 
internships that give on-the-job experience. The school 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 multi-media review of the year. 

ASSESSMENT 

To make satisfactory progress toward preparation for the job market, students 
majoring in the school will be expected to attend school assemblies and other 
professional meetings sponsored by the school.* 

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 school Communication Club and the 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 evidence of professional commitment. 

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

Students in the school will be given a writing skills test when they enter the 
school. 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 school. 

School 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. To determine that the 



School of Journalism and Communication 149 



curriculum meets the objectives of the school and the standards of the Accrediting 
Council of Education in Journalism and Mass Communication, the faculty makes 
an ongoing analysis of courses required for majors.

Southern Adventist University's Nonprofit Administration and Development 
degree is designed to meet the demand for entry-level managers with fund 
development expertise. 

AMERICAN HUMANICS CERTIFICATION 

The program is affiliated with American Humanics, Inc., in Kansas City, which 
offers certification for students who graduate with this degree. American 
Humanics is an alliance of colleges, universities, and nonprofit organizations 
preparing undergraduates for careers with youth and human service agencies 
through specified curriculum, co-curricular activities, and internships. American 
Humanics focuses on leadership and service to humanity, professionalism, 
measurable competencies, and certification. 

American Humanics' mission is "to prepare and certify future nonprofit 
professionals to work with America's youth and families/ 

in Chattanooga, the University of Tennessee, Covenant College, and Southern 
Adventist University have joined together in partnership as the Southeast 
Consortium for Nonprofit Administration, Education, and Training. With the 
support of Chattanooga foundations, nonprofits, and others, the Southeast 
Consortium provides resources, workshops, and other training for students at all 
three institutions. In addition, American Humanics is affiliated with national 
nonprofit partners including: 

American Red Cross 

Big Brothers Big Sisters of America 

Boys & Girls Clubs of America 

Boy Scouts of America 

Camp Fire Boys and Girls 

Girls Incorporated 

Girl Scouts of the U.S.A. 

Habitat for Humanity International 

Junior Achievement Inc. 



1 56 School of Journalism and Communication 



• National Network for Youth 

• Special Olympics, International 

• United Way of America 

• Volunteers of America 

• YMCAoftheU.S.A. 

• YWCA of the U.S.A. 

• and other nonprofits 

Certification is not automatic with the completion of the degree; American 
Humanics requires competencies in the following: 

• career development 

• communication 

• personal leadership attributes 

• historical and philosophical foundations 

• youth and adult development 

• board/committee development 

• fund- raising principles and practices 

• human resource development and supervision 

• general nonprofit management 

• nonprofit accounting and financial management 

• nonprofit public relations 

• program planning 

• risk management 

Besides nonprofit certification, the American Humanics certification program 
offers the following: 

• one-to-one mentioning 

• networking with prospective employers 

• opportunity to *try out* various nonprofit roles 

• potential for references and referrals 

• exposure to national nonprofit network 

• scholarships 

AMERICAN HUMANICS CERTIFICATION FOR OTHER MAJORS 

Certification in American Humanics for students majoring in other areas is also 
available. To make arrangements and apply for certification, contact the campus 
director. 

ASSESSMENT 

Assessment will take place through the American Humanics certification 
process and with internship and practicum supervisors. 

JOB OUTLOOK 

Because of the decline in government support of nonprofit, it is more valuable 
than ever that nonprofit managers have fund development skills. The B.S. in 
Nonprofit Administration and Development degree is designed to provide both 
training and internships in fund development as well as in management. 

The demand for graduates with these competencies is high with an estimated 
50,000 needed annually to fill new staff vacancies. More than one million 
nonprofit organizations are at work across the country, employing 9 million 
people and aided by nearly 90 million volunteers. The Bureau of Labor predicts 



School of Journalism and Communication 157 



a 45% increase in the need for youth and human service professionals by the year 
2002, when government support of the nonprofit sector will decline by 28% or 
$125 billion.

Mathematics 



Chair: Arthur Richer! 

Faculty: Kevin Brown, 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 in 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 final semester of their 
senior year. All actuarial studies majors are required to take the Society of 
Actuaries Course 1 examination. The results of these examinations are used in 
ongoing review of the departmental curriculum.

Modern Languages 



Chair: Carlos H. Parra 

Faculty: Mari-Carmen Gal lego 

Adjunct Faculty: Darwin Ayscue, Sam James, Helmut Ott 

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 Modern 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. ACT 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 
ACT: in Austria, Seminar Schloss Bogenhofen, Braunau; in France, Centre 
Universitaireet P&iagogique du Salfcve, Collonges-sous-Sal^ve; in Spain, Colegio 
Adventista de Sagunto, Sagunto; and in Argentina, Universidad Adventista del 
Plata, LibertadorSan Martfn.

School of Music 



Dean: W.Scott Ball 

Faculty: J. Bruce Ashton, Brandon Beck, Julie Boyd-Penner, Judith Glass, 

Laurie Redmer 
Adjunct Faculty: Ken Cardillo, Jan Cochrane, Charles Griffin, James Hanson, 

Elaine Janzen, Nora Kile, Bruce Kuist, Lynda Magee-Johnson, Mark Reneau, 

Clinton Schmitt, Patricia Silver, Gordon Stangeland, James Stroud, 

Niolasa Tejero, Gary Wilkes, Mark Zelmanovitch 

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 threetracks: 
(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 1 89. 

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 an 
appropriate music ensemble every semester in full-time residence (12 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. 



1 76 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. 
T. 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 
2.75 for the Bachelor of Music degree. 

b. A grade point average of 2.75 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 w 
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 will 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. 



School of Music 1 77

MISSION STATEMENT 

Southern Adventist University's School of Nursing provides a Christian learning 
environment that fosters personal and professional excellence in caring for 
individual, family, and community health needs. 

ASSOCIATE AND BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS 

The School of Nursing (SON) program at Southern Adventist University leads 
to a baccalaureate degree in nursing with the option to exit at the associate degree 
level. Students entering the nursing program are encouraged to declare the 
baccalaureate degree when they first apply to the SON. Licensed holders of an 
associate degree from an accredited program in nursing may progress into 
baccalaureate level nursing. Licensed diploma and associate degree graduates from 
a non-accredited program will be evaluated on an individual basis. 

The nursing curriculum is based on the Neuman Systems Model (NSM) which 
emphasizes wholistic health. The curriculum in the first two years leads to an 
Associate of Science degree in nursing which may be completed in four semesters, 
plus summer courses. At this time the student is eligible to write state board 
examinations (NCLEX) to become a registered nurse. 

The curriculum in the Baccalaureate Program provides the student an in-depth 
study in theoretical and clinical nursing. 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 fall and winter 
semesters of each year with a limited number of students due to available clinical 
facilities. Students may enter the baccalaureate program in the fall and winter 
semesters. The size of baccalaureate classes may be limited due to available 
clinical sites. 

A well-equipped Learning Resource Center (LRC), clinical skills laboratory, and 
Assisting Students to Achieve Professionally (ASAP) program are provided to assist 
students in learning experiences 

POLICIES 

Students admitted to clinical courses are considered adequately mature to 
realize the importance of accepting personal responsibility for their learning and 
professional behavior as stated in the SON Handbook. 

Each student contracts to abide by the regulations as outlined. The programs 
on the Collegedale cahnpus and extension campus are governed by the same 
policies. 

Students will be expected to provide their own transportation for all clinical 
appointments. 






School of Nursing 189 



Because regular tuition charges and fees do not cover the total cost of nursing, 
a nursing education fee is charged each semester to help offset additional 
expenses which are not covered by regular tuition, (see Special Fees and Charges 
under Financial Policies section of the catalog.) 

The Tennessee State Board of Nursing and other State Boards reserve the right 
to deny licensure in their states if the applicant has committed a crime other than 
a minor traffic violation. The SON reserves the right to deny admission to or 
remove students from a nursing program who have records of misconduct, legal 
or otherwise, that would jeopardize their professional performance. 

The SON 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 (61 Broadway, New York, NY 10006, (212)363-5555, 
ext. 153). 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. 
Additional information regarding the University may be obtained by contacting the 
State Board of Independent Colleges and Universities, Department of Education, 
Tallahassee, FL 32399, (850)488-8695. 

ASSESSMENT 

The SON has an ongoing assessment program. Each associate degree student 
is required to pass a standardized competency test given upon completion of Level 
II before progressing to Level III of the curriculum. During Level IV, the student 
must pass a standardized comprehensive examination to be eligible for graduation. 
The associate degree graduate is eligible to take the NCLEX-RN examination. The 
Tennessee State Board of Nursing (TBN) requires an annual pass rate 85% or 
higher on the NCLEX-RN for a school to maintain TBN approval. 

To evaluate the baccalaureate graduates' academic progress, during the last 
semester of the senior year, each student is required to complete an exit 
examination. 

To aid the SON in evaluating teacher/curriculum effectiveness, associate and 
baccalaureate graduates are required to complete end of program surveys.

Physics 



Chair: Ken Caviness 
Faculty: Chris Hansen, Henry Kuhlman 
Research Faculty: Ray Hefferlin 
Adjunct Faculty: Cyril Roe 

Many doors of service await students who study physics. Southern Adventist 
University physics major graduates have become academy and high school 
teachers, and professors and researchers in physics, in America and overseas. Also, 
one or more of them has served as aerospace researcher for the Apollo project, 
anesthetist, chemical researcher, computer systems manager, computer net-work 
manager at large factory, corporation pilot, dentist, family-practice medical doctor, 
full-time homemaker, geologist, historian of science, instructor for fossil-fuel 
power-plant operators, instructor for nuclear-reactor operators, lawyer, 
mathematician, nuclear-plant walk-down engineer, oceanographer, orklrilling 
engineer, planner for Space Station Freedom, radiologist, reliability designer for 
long-distance telephone systems, radio station engineer, and researcher in 
educational statistics. 

The Physics Department offers B.S. and B.A. degrees in physics, B.S. in 
biophysics, and A.S. in Engineering Studies (see page128). 

The B.S. degree in physics gives the strongest physics foundation for any 
physics-related career. The B.A. degree in physics with teaching certification is 
recommended for a career in secondary teaching. The B.S. degree in biophysics 
should be considered by students planning on advanced study in the fields of 
medicine, biophysics, physiology, radiation biology, and bioengineering, 
particularly in view of a career in medical research. 

ASSESSMENT 

To help the graduates in Physics evaluate their academic progress and to aid 
the department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, each senior is required to: 

1 . Take the physics portion of the GRE. A score above the 35th percentile 
is necessary for recommendation for graduate study. 

2. Take PHYS 480 and do original research as a prerequisite. 

Alumni are surveyed and studies are prepared comparing GRE results, careers, 
and graduate-study success. Information gained from the assessments and studies 
is used to evaluate departmental programs.

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. 



214 School of Religion 



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. 

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 
sophomore year. (Upper class transfer students must apply during the second 
semester in residence.) An evaluation and decision by the religion faculty of the 
student's overall potential for success in ministry, including consideration of the 
applicant's academic progress, emotional stability, social and professional skills 
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 
Candidates. Acceptance into the ministerial program as a trainee and a candidate 
is required for the completion of the major in theology. Students not accepted into 
the program may choose to complete a major in Religious Studies. 

Trainees: 

Students may apply to the ministerial program for trainee status by mid-term 
of the first semester of their sophomore year. These applications will be 
considered during the last half of the first semester, and announced by semester's

Bible teaching, and policies and procedures related to student teaching may be 



School of Religion 217 



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 

Those seeking Tennessee State Certification must fulfill requirements listed on 
page 1 1 3 of this catalog. 

Admission to Religious Studies 

The Religious Studies major is a liberal arts major for students interested in 
pursuing a 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. 

It is a 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. 

Admission to Archaeology 

The Archaeology major is a liberal arts major for students interested in 
preparing for graduate studies in archaeology, museum studies, of cultural 
resource management or as preparation for professional field such as medicine, 
dentistry, law, or education. Students choosing to major in archaeology must 
consult with the director of the Institute of Archaeology to determine their area of 
interest in Near Eastern or Classical Studies and to lay plans for participation in 
archaeological fieldwork. 

The four year degree candidate may apply the required 12 hours of General 
Education courses in religion towards the hours for the major, thus reducing the 
number of extra courses needed to qualify. 

Admission to the Bible Instructor or Literature Evangelist Program 

The Bible Worker and Literature Evangelist Program is a 64 hour, two-year 
degree leading to an A.A. in Religion. Students wishing to be recommended for 
employment as Bible instructors or literature evangelists must be approved by the 
School of Religion. The School of Religion cannot recommend for employment 
anyone whose course of study has been inadequate or unapproved. 

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.) 



218 School of Religion

PROGRAMS IN SOCIAL WORK AND FAMILY STUDIES 

The Social Work and Family Studies Department offers a degree in Social Work 
(accredited by the Council on Social Work Education) and in Family Studies. 
Minors are also available in Behavioral Science, Family Studies, Social Work, 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, spreadsheet, database, Internet, CD 
ROMS, video— interactive, and statistical analysis. Majors are encouraged to have 
their own personal computers (PCs) if possible. 

SOCIAL WORK 

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 450 
hour FIELD PRACTICUMS 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.

STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

This committee is made up of two elected students from each class, freshman 
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 practicums experiences is not provided by the 
program. Students will be expected to provide their own transportation and 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 and to remove 
students from the social work program who have an unresolved felony on record 
in any state and who have records of misconduct, legal and otherwise, that would 
jeopardize their professional performance. 

The social work program reserves the right to revise, add, and 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 
continuation in the program is made by the program Admissions and Progressions 
Committee. 



Social Work and Family Studies 231 



During the second semester of the freshmen year the student is to complete an 
autobiography and a written essay on a specific social policy. 

During the first semester of the sophomore year the student is to 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 
made for persons who do not meet the grade point average requirements if 
they are strong candidates on the basis of other criteria). 

5 Have completed SOCW 211: Introduction to Social Work and/or SOCW 
21 2: Social Welfare as an Institution with a grade of C or higher. 

6. Show evidence of physical, mental, and moral fitness. Further references 
may be required regarding character, altitude, and coping ability in case of 
a question in this area. 

7. Students whose native language is not English must achieve at least 550 on 
the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). 

8. Have taken the Taylor-Johnson Temperament Analysis and the Jackson 
Personality Inventory. The student is to make arrangements with the 
University Counseling and Testing Center to take these tests. 

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, will be expected to apply for admission to the Social Work Program 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. 



232 Social Work and Family Studies 



FIELD PRACTICUMS 

The social work field practicums is designed to provide students with a chance 
to put into practice the theories and skills they have learned in the classroom. The 
practice of social work is a combination of theory and interpersonal skills with the 
field practicums a key component of the educational process. The focus of the 
field practicums is on the interactional process between student worker and client 
system(s) and the testing and use of specific interventions; students have the 
opportunity to connect the theory and knowledge with actual practice experience. 
This experience is essential to developing the entry level helping skills required of 
all undergraduate social work professionals. The nature of the field practicums is 
practice-oriented, builds on skills and theories learned in cognate social work 
classes, and involves direct contact and intervention with individuals, families, and 
groups; only social work majors may take the field practicums and must have met 
the required prerequisites. The field practicums experience is eight (8) credit hours 
which are taken concurrently with the Integrative Field Seminar. 

ASSESSMENT 

The social work program maintains a comprehensive assessment policy. In 
order to provide for evaluation of the program and monitoring teaching 
effectiveness, as well as measuring the achievements of graduates, all seniors are 
required to: 

1. Take a standardized social work achievement test (PACAT) in the winter 
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. 

4. Take part in a seniors group exit interview. 

5. Present a report on a piece of original research they have designed in the 
research classes and completed during the field practicums. This report will 
be part of the Senior Seminar and Field Practicums Integrative Seminar. 

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 
dimensions 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 

To help the graduates in Family Studies evaluate their academic progress and to 
aid the department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, each senior is required to: 

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. 



Social Work and Family Studies 233 



Information gained from the above assessments is used to evaluate departmental 
programs, but it will not affect graduation eligibility. 

DEPARTMENT STUDY TOURS 

The Social Work and Family Studies Department sponsors a study tour to New 
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 
of peoples and cultures and to enable the participants to work with people more

School of 
Visual Art and Design 



Dean: Wayne Hazen 

Faculty: Randall Craven, Terry Deitrich, David George, Frank Mirande, 

Maria Roybal-Hazen, Dean Scott 
Adjunct Faculty: Colin Brady, John Cline, Jeff Dever, Brian Dunne, 

Zachary Gray, Douglas Lively 

Basic to the philosophy of the School of Visual Art and Design 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. 

The Bachelor of Science degree in Graphic Design prepares the student in the 
majors of graphic design, animation and technical direction. The growing fields 
in visual arts production offer opportunities for the Christian artist hardly ventured 
into up to this point in video and film. 

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is designed to prepare the fine artist to enter 
graduate school with a strong background in art history and painting. Students 
also have the opportunity to focus in Art History to prepare for leadership in 
community council for the arts, museums, and galleries. 

Art Therapy, a pre-professional program, prepares the art student for a post- 
graduate degree designed to focus on the helping relationship. 

ASSESSMENT 

Students in the School of Visual Art and Design will keep a portfolio of their 
work from their freshman year onward. This portfolio is reviewed twice on a 
yearly basis by the school's faculty. Recommendations are made, on the basis of 
these reviews, to aid in the student advisement. The effectiveness of the school 
is determined by the reviews of senior portfolios by visiting graduate deans of 
selected graduate art school and by visiting professionals in the respective fields. 
Due to the nature of art and the required talent and discipline for success in the 
field, a grade average of 85%(B) is required as a prerequisite for any internship or 
practicums. Also, due to the difficulty of the classes we strongly recommend that 
students achieve a grade of 85% before going on to the next class in a sequence.

Major— B.S. Art-Graphic Design (58-63 Hours) 

The Graphic Design course will prepare students to enter the exciting and 
competitive world of graphic design. Today's graphic designers need to have 
good eye-hand coordination, knowledge of art history, and the ability to work with 
the Macintosh computer. They also need to work with their hands in order to 
achieve a high professional level and a competitive place in the market. 
Excellence in this field depends on discipline and hard work combined with skill 
and talent. In graphic design, students have room to unleash their own ideas and 
watch them come true by creating their own universe of places, object, and 
characters. Students will be assisted by graphic artists in an environment that 
promotes the highest principles and moral values.

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 (CRNA) 

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. 

DENTISTRY 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Pre-dental training in college/university requires a minimum of three years of 
study; however, a preference is given to those who have completed a fourth year, 
earning a bachelor's degree. Students may major in the field of their interest. 
Although a thorough background in the biological and physical sciences is 
essential to the study of dentistry, a broad educational background in the 
humanities is desirable. Upper division biology courses are recommended to 
prepare for the Dental Admissions Test and for the first year of basic science 
courses in dental school. 

Application to dental school should be made one year previous to the one for 
which admission is desired. Successful applicants should have a minimum GPA 
of 3.00 in both science and non-science courses as well as satisfactory 
performance on the Dental Admissions Test (given each October and April).

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, five fields should 
be especially considered by the student serious about law school. These are: 
business, history, English, journalism, 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

Religion 12 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 . 



266 Non-Degree 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:

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



Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 267 



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

are listed on their web site at: http://www.llu.edu/llu/sps/. 



268 Non-Decree 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 bachelor's 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:

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, 331 19 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. 



Financial Policies 



STUDENT FINANCE OFFICE MISSION STATEMENT 

Southern Adventist University is committed to providing every student the 
opportunity to obtain a Christian education. To reach this goal, the Student 
Finance Office will make every effort to work together with students toward 
meeting the students' financial obligations. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY 

Student Responsibility for University Expenses 

The Student Finance Office will assist students in their financial planning. 
Financial aid is available to qualified recipients in the form of grants, loans, 
scholarships and work opportunities. However, responsibility for payment of 
University expenses rests with the student, regardless of any assistance which may 
be expected or received from federal financial aid, parents, Southern Adventist 
University, denominational employers, or any other source. 

Before registering, each student must submit a Payment Contract to the Student 
Accounts Services 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 will receive 25% of their earnings for tithe and personal items. 
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 100% of 
their earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be 
applied directly to their student account. Further information is available 
from a financial counselor. 

The payroll period normally covers a two-week period and students are paid 
every other Friday. 

It is recommended that on-campus summer earnings remain on the students' 
accounts to accumulate toward their advance payment. 

Parents wishing to provide a student with cash for personal expenses should 
use a means other than depositing funds 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. 



270 Finances 



Student Check Cashing 

Students are encouraged to use their home banks or a local area bank for their 
personal financial services. Any exceptions must be approved by Student Accounts 
Services. No third party checks will be honored. 

If a check is returned by a bank for insufficient funds, account closed, or any 
other reason, there will be a $20 returned check fee assessed to the student's 
account. 

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 savings 
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 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 should losses occur.

POLICES ON FEES AND CHARGES 

Approved Items to Charge to Student Account 

Any charges to a student's account, outside of the normal educational 
expenses, must be approved by the Student Finance Office. Examples of charges 
which will not be approved are student club dues and departmental or class tours. 

Advance Payment 

An advance payment of $2,500 of the student's fees and charges is required 
before registration, with $1 ,250 being held for second semester. For new students 
entering second semester the advance payment is $1,250, and all other 
appropriate charges are applicable. 

Scholarships and denominational tuition subsidy may not be used as part of the 
advance payment, with the exception of the Student Missionary Scholarship, 
HHES, and the summer camp scholarship. 

Food Service Charges 

The cafeteria plan of boarding allows residence hall students the privilege of 
choosing food and paying only for what is selected. Students are encouraged to 
eat healthfully by eating at the cafeteria, Campus Kitchen, or KR's Place. Residence 
hall students are required to pay the minimum cafeteria charge of $145 per month 
which will be prorated for vacations and holidays. No minimum charge is made 
during the summer months. 

Village students may charge food at the cafeteria, Campus Kitchen, and KR's 
Place as long as their school accounts are paid monthly by the due date. Should 
a village student account become 60 days past due the privilege of charging food 
will be withdrawn. The food charging capability will be reactivated only after at 
least one full semester of timely payments. 

Books and School Supplies Charges 

Books and school supplies may be charged at the Campus Shop. A student 
may charge up to a maximum allowable amount for books. A separate maximum 
applies to school supplies and miscellaneous items. 



Finances 273 



Students may not charge items from the Adventist Book Center or other book 
stores to their student accounts. 

Nursing Education Fees 

Upon acceptance to the clinical nursing program, students are required to send 
a deposit of $320 to hold their placement in the class. This deposit also serves as 
the first semester's Nursing Education Associate Degree Fee, which will be charged 
to the A.S. nursing student's account each subsequent semester. This fee is in 
addition to all other fees. The $320 deposit is refundable to students who change 
majors, or to those who never attend SAU. Requests for refund must be made 
through the School of Nursing no later than August 1 . 

Music Lesson Fees 

In addition to the tuition charge for private music instruction courses, a music 
lesson fee is charged per semester, as detailed below. 
With academic credit: $134.00 plus tuition 

A student will receive 14 half-hour lessons per semester. 

Without academic credit: $180.00 

A student will receive 14 half-hour lessons per semester. 

Without academic credit: $360.00 

A student will receive 14 one-hour lessons per semester. 

Music majors who are currently enrolled in or have completed MUCT 111-112 
and 121-122, and who have been accepted to receive credit for a concentration, 
pay only one fee per semester to cover all private lessons. 

Music lesson fee refunds are calculated on the basis of the number of lessons 
taken during the first four weeks of the semester, after which no refunds are 
granted. Students taking lessons with or without credit must submit an Add/Drop 
form to the Records and Advisement Office at the time the lessons are 
discontinued to be eligible for a refund. 

Excused absences may be made up at the discretion of the teacher if previous 
arrangements have been made. Lessons falling on holidays or during vacations will 
not be made up unless this results in the student having fewer than 14 lessons for 
the semester. 

International Student Deposit 

In addition to the regular University costs, international students must provide 
an International Student Deposit of $4,000 U.S. This applies to all international 
students except documented permanent residents of the U.S. or residents of 
Canada and Bermuda. 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 
should be sent at least six weeks prior to enrollment. This deposit, once paid, 
remains 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 international deposit will be applied to the student's account. If the student's 
account has been paid in full, the deposit will be refunded after the final statement 
is issued. 



274 Finances 



Health and Accident Insurance 

Southern Adventist University requires all international students to 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 will 
automatically be enrolled in the University health and accident plan unless the 
student signs a waiver card at the time of registration indicating s/he does not want 
the University insurance because: 

1. The student has other insurance equal to or better than the University 
insurance plan. 

2. The student is covered under the SDA denominational health care plan. 

3. The student does not live in University-owned housing and is taking less 
than six semester hours of class work during the fall and spring semesters or 
less than three hours of class work in the summer. 

SAU Refund Policies 

Refund fes Complete Withdrawal fam 0$$$$$ 

A student who withdraws from school completely during the semester will 
receive a tuition and general fee refund based on the date the completed 
withdrawal form with all the required signatures is filed with the Records and 
Advisement Office. 

Residence hall refunds are prorated according to the number of days a student 
occupies the room subtracted from the number of days remaining in the semester.

Finances 275 



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. 

If the student has a credit balance caused by a financial aid over-award, the 
necessary credit will be applied to the aid funds, according to the Financial Aid 
Refund Policy described on page 296. If any credit remains, it will be refunded 
as described above. 

Residence Hall/Campus Housing Charges 

Residence Hall Costs 

Room charges are based on two students occupying one room. Residence hall 
accommodations costs for each individual are $1 ,936 for the school year. Charges 
are made on a semester basis beginning in August and January. A student may, 
upon application to the residence hall dean, be allowed to room alone at a cost 
of $2,904. If sufficient rooms are available, s/he requires approval from the 
Student Finance Office. It is the student's responsibility to have arranged for a 
roommate unless specific arrangements have been made to room alone. No pets, 
firearms, or weapons are allowed in the residence hall. 

No refunds are made for vacation periods or absences from the campus. When 
a student withdraws, a prorated portion of the semester charge, beginning with the 
date of non-occupancy of the room, will be refunded. 

Residence Hall Deposit and Peppsit Refund 

A room deposit of $1 50 is required of each resident. To guarantee a room in 
the residence hall, payment of this deposit must be made by July 15. After July 15, 
no room is held for a student whose deposit has not been paid. This deposit 
should be sent directly to Southern Adventist University and is held in reserve until 
the student graduates and/or permanently moves out of the residence hall. The 
deposit is in addition to any other payment, and is fully refundable to students 
who never attend SAU or never move into the residence hall. 

University Apartment Costs 

University-owned apartments may be rented by married students taking a 
minimum of six hours each semester. The apartments range in size from two to six 
rooms and are rented furnished or unfurnished. Rents range from $265 to $379 
and will be charged by semester in August and January. Rent is paid in advance 
and begins when the key is issued. Charges are based on the date of issue and 
return of keys and proper clearance with the office of the Vice President for 
Financial Administration. No pets, firearms, or weapons are allowed in University 
housing. 

University Apartment Deposit and Deposit Refund 

Married students and single students over 23 years of age renting an apartment 
from the University pay a housing deposit of $300 to reserve an apartment. This 
housing deposit is due before occupancy and is sent directly to Southern Adventist 
University. The deposit is in addition to any other payment. 

If a student gives notice before August 1 that s/he will not be attending, the 
housing deposit will be refunded. Damage or cleaning charges may also be 
charged to the student's account if the deposit is insufficient to cover these costs. 



276 Finances 



The housekeeping supervisor at the Service Department will determine whether 
the apartment has been left clean and undamaged. A packing and moving fee may 
be charged as necessary.

2. Have completed all necessary paperwork for federal financial assistance 
and received a financial aid award letter before August 1 if relying on 
financial aid.

POLICIES ON FEE WAIVERS AND REBATES 

Family Rebate 

When two students from the same immediate family who have the same 
financial sponsor are enrolled at Southern Adventist University's Collegedale 
campus at the same time, they may receive a five percent discount on tuition and 
general fee. This also applies to married student couples. A ten percent discount 
will be given when three or more students from the same immediate family are 
Enrolled at SAU at the same time, and have the same financial sponsor. This rebate 
does not apply for summer classes. If one student is a National Merit Finalist and 
receives free tuition, that student would not be eligible for the family discount. 

When two students are enrolled at SAU from the same immediate family who 
have the same financial sponsor, and one is a Student Missionary/Task Force 
Worker and is enrolled in the 12 hour Christian Service course, the Student 
Missionary/Task Force Worker will not receive an additional discount; however, 
the brother or sister whp is enrolled at Southern will receive a five percent tuition 



Finances 277 



discount. If the Student Missionary/Task Force Worker is not enrolled in the 1 2 
hour Christian Service course, no discount will be given to the sibling enrolled on 
the SAU campus. 

When three or more students are enrolled at SAU from the same immediate 
family who have the same financial sponsor, and one is a Student Missionary/Task 
Force Worker and is enrolled in the 1 2 hour Christian Service course, the Student 
Missionary/Task Force Worker will not receive an additional discount; however, 
the students who are enrolled at Southern will receive a 10 percent tuition 
discount. If the Student Missionary/Task Force Worker is not enrolled in the 12 
hour Christian Service course, a 5 percent tuition discount will be given to the 
siblings enrolled on the SAU campus. 

No family rebate will be given to ACT students. However, family members 
will receive a family rebate according to the policy above for Student 
Missionaries/Task Force Workers. 

Post-graduate Tuition Plan for Undergraduate Classes 

A Post-graduate Tuition Plan at a 50% tuition reduction has been established 
for the purpose of assisting students who have graduated with a bachelor's degree 
from Southern. The plan also allows eligible non-Southern Adventist University 
graduates to enroll in classes at a 25% tuition reduction. The provisions that apply 
are: 

1 . To be eligible for the Post-graduate Tuition Plan, a student must have graduated 
from SAU or other eligible non-SAU schools with a bachelor's degree at least two 
years before entering the Post-graduate Tuition Plan. 

2. Applicants must have a clear financial SAU account and all loan payments must 
be up-to-date at the time of registration before the Post-graduate Tuition Plan is 
approved. If a participant's account or loan payment becomes delinquent, that 
student will lose his/her Post-graduate Tuition Plan privileges and cannot be 
reinstated. 

3. Students wishing financial aid must apply through the Student Finance Office. 

4. This plan is applicable to classes where space is available and where the hiring 
of new faculty or staff is not required. The Post-graduate Tuition Plan does not 
include private music lessons, long-term care administration classes, 
independent study, directed study, student teaching, graduate classes, 
internships, A.S. nursing, the fifth year of a five-year degree program, summer 
classes, or a program where a tuition discount is already in effect. 

5. Since the Post-graduate Tuition Plan offer is for tuition only, it does not apply to 
lab fees, surcharges for applicable courses, residence hall charges, books, or 
cafeteria charges. 

6. This program is open to a limited number of students. Southern Adventist 
University reserves the right to discontinue or amend this special tuition offer at 
the discretion of the University administration. 



278 Finances 



Tuition and Fee Waiver for Student Missionaries 

Those students planning to serve as Student Missionaries and enrolling in 
NOND 227 and 228, Christian Service I and II, will be charged tuition at 10% of 
the current rate and will not be charged a General Fee. 

Students enrolled in GEOG 306, Cultural Geography, and COMM 291/391, 
Intercultural Communication Practicum, will be given a two-thirds tuition waiver. 

Before final authorization may be obtained, all students going as Student 
Missionaries or Task Force Workers must be cleared by the Student Accounts 
Services. 

Senior Citizen Tuition Plan 

Persons over 65 years of age may audit any regular college course free of 
charge, provided there is space available and sufficient enrollment of students 
paying regular tuition to offer the class. Lab fees will be charged at full price where 
required. 

They may take classes for college credit at one-fourth the regular rate, provided 
there is space available and sufficient enrollment of students paying regular tuition 
to offer the class. Lab fees will be charged at full price where required. 

They may enroll in seminars, workshops, other courses offered outside the 
regular academic structure, and private lessons at full price. 

Collegedale Academy Students Tuition Fee Waiver 

Collegedale Academy students who have finished their junior year may take 
up to six credit hours at SAU at a rate of 1/3 of the current tuition rate per hour. 
Students eligible for tuition subsidy will receive the subsidy of 35% or 70% of the 
tuition paid. Private music lessons are at the regular SAU tuition rate. 

METHODS OF PAYMENT 

The following methods of payment are available. Families who do not enroll 
in one of these payment plans must pay the amount due indicated on the student's 
monthly statement each month by the due date. 

If a check is returned by a bank for insufficient funds, account closed, or any 
other reason, a $20 returned check fee will be assessed to the student's account. 
This forfeits the privilege of paying by check. 

Payment Plans I and III— Cash in Advance 

When the total estimated charges for tuition (minimum six hours), general fee, 
room, and board for a semester are paid in cash at or before registration, a 
discount of three percent for the semester or five percent for the year is allowed 
on this cash payment. Amounts paid as a result of student loans, grants, or 
scholarships are excluded from the amount on which the discount is allowed. 
Students choosing to pay cash in advance must on or before registration time, pay 
the full amount required by the plan for the semester or year, less any advance 
payments or credits.

Payment Plan //— Guaranteed Tuition Plan 

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 payment. 
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 exceed four years, 
excluding a one-year leave of absence which may be given for Student 
Missionaries, ACT, or Task Force Workers. This plan is not applicable to summer 
school. 

.Total estimated cost for the year must be paid prior to or at fall registration. 
Any cash withdrawals, except student earnings, will void the contract. 
Participants in this plan are eligible for a five percent cash discount on the total 
estimated cost the first year of participation only (calculated as in Payment Plan 
I). The next three years, the tuition rate will remain the same as year one, and 
a five percent discount will be given on general fee, room, board, and books 
only. 

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. 

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

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. 
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 may re-enter Payment Plan II 
based on the tuition rate of enrollment-for the new year.

This plan only guarantees the tuition rate— not the room, board, books, and 
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 IV— Monthly Payments 

A monthly payment plan is available for the 2000-2001 academic year through 
the Student Accounts Services Office. All students on the monthly payment option 
must pay an advance payment of at least $2,500. 

Credit Card Payments 

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

When using a credit card to pay on an account, the following information must 
be supplied: 1) name of credit card being used; 2) cardholder's name; 3) credit 
card number; 4) expiration date; 5) student's name and ID number; and, 6) 
amount to be charged on card. 

Automatic Credit Card Payments 

Payment through automatic credit card deductions may be arranged. This 
arrangement is made through the Student Accounts Services Office. A signed 
written request for automatic credit card deductions, stating the amount to be 
deducted, the date each month the deduction should be made, and the amount 
to be deducted each month will be required. 

Personal Check Payments 

Payments made to a student's account by personal check should have the 
student's University personal identification number (ID number) written on the 
check. If the ID number is not written on the check when it is received by SAU, 
it will be written on the check by an SAU employee for posting purposes. 

BILLING PROCEDURES 

Monthly Statements 

Statements will show all monthly/semester charges and credits and will be 
mailed to students on or before the 1 3 th of each month. The minimum payment 
is due the 28 th of each month. If the minimum payment due is received on or 
before the 23 rd , a one percent discount may be subtracted from the payment. 
Students who do not pay by the 28 th will be assessed a $25 late fee. Students who 
do not pay within three weeks after the 28 th will have their ID cards deactivated. 
Students' registrations will be canceled and they will be charged a $100 fee if 
payment is not received within four weeks after the 28 th . Those wishing to re- 
enroll must then pay the entire semester's estimated expenses. 

Before semester examinations may be taken, or before registering for a new 
semester, the student account balance must be paid in full. 

Tuition Assistance 

Please notify Student Finance if either parent is eligible for tuition assistance 
from an employer. Indicate whether the employer is an educational institution or 



Finances 281 



some other organization. Upon receiving this information, Student Finance will 
bill the parent's employer for the appropriate amount. It is still the responsibility 
of the parents to ensure that the tuition assistance is paid by their employer. 

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 plan the student is on. 
Exceptions may be considered to receive an official grade transcript when the 
account is current except for a pending disbursement of a Federal student loan. 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 
CASHIER'S 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. 

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. Payments due on non-current 
accounts that are not received by the last working day of the month will be 
charged a one percent 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 designated a 
non-current student account and will be reported to Experian, a credit bureau, as 
of February 15. 

When a student leaves at the end of second semester who does not return for 
the summer session, the account will be designated a non-current student account 
as of June 15 and reported to Experian. 

When a student leaves at the end of second semester with an unpaid account 
and plans to return the following year, the student will have until June 28 to bring 
the account current. If the student decides not to return, then this account will be 
designated a non-current account as of September 1 5 and reported to Experian. 

At the time any account is designated non-current, a carrying charge of one 
percent per month will apply. 



282 Finances 



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 Accounts Services Office to contact the individual, 
the account will be submitted to a collection agency or attorney. 

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-due 
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 only after 
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 
CASHIER'S 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. No further services will be extended. The bankruptcy of the financial 
sponsor in no way changes the underlying financial obligation of the student to 
pay his or her student account. 

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, driver's license, or original birth 



Finances 283 



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. 

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. 

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. 

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. 

International Student Labor Regulations 

International 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 will receive 25% of their earnings for tithe and personal items. 

Students who receive Federal Work-Study earnings will receive 100% 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. Further information is available from a financial counselor. 

The payroll period normally covers a two-week time period and students are 
paid every other Friday. Students must wait until they receive their earning 
statements before they are allowed to withdraw any additional cash from earnings. 

It is recommended that on-campus summer earnings remain on the students' 
accounts to accumulate toward their advance payment. 



284 Finances 



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. 

Summer Work Incentive Program 

The following incentive program applies only to residence hall students working 

on campus. 

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

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

A. A minimum of 300 hours of summer work is completed. 

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

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, phone 1-800-SOUTHERN, or go to our

PLEASE TAKE NOTE 

We guarantee all Southern scholarships offered to you before 
June 1 . Applications for admission and financial aid that 
arrive after June 1 will be awarded scholarships on a first- 
come, first-served basis until SAU scholarship funds are 
depleted. So plan ahead and submit your applications as 
early as possible! 

All scholarships are divided and distributed equally over the 
fall and winter semesters. Our scholarships are not available 
for summer sessions. 

For students who apply for and qualify for federal 
financial aid, determination of the total amount of 
scholarships given by SAU is guided by federal guidelines. 
SAU is not allowed to "overaward* a student who has 
applied for federal aid. In rare cases, students who 
qualify for multiple scholarships may only be eligible to 
receive a portion of their awards, based on the federal 
formulas for awarding. 

Scholarships provided by Southern Adventist University, 
or the combination of tuition assistance from SDA institu- 
tions and scholarships provided by Southern Adventist 
University, shall not exceed the actual charges of tuition (for 
up to 16 hours), general fees, residential rent (up to the 
standard residence hall rent or its equivalent in other 
campus housing), books and supplies charged at the Campus 
Shop up to a maximum of $450 per semester. Tuition 
assistance, and federal, state, and private scholarships 
shall be applied toward a student's account first, before

Grants 

Southern Adventist University need-based institutional grants are awarded from 
institutional and endowment funds to students who have financial need and are 
achieving academically. 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 SAL) 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 
academic progress falls below the required level, the SAU grant may be deferred 
or canceled. Any requests for exceptions should be addressed to the Academic 
Progress Committee. 

SAU Endowment Grants— Southern Adventist University is blessed with a 
growing endowment fund crea ed by donors interested in helping students achieve 
their educational goals. Eligibility for these free grant monies is determined by 
filling out the federal financial aid application (FAFSA). This application uses a 
common nationwide formula to determine a family's ability to pay for college. 
Southern uses this formula as a guideline in disbursing the Southern Endowment 
Fund. For a financial aid application, call 1 .800.SOUTHERN. You can also file 
for financial aid on-line at www.fafsa.ed.gov. These funds are awarded to students 
who have established financial need through the federal aid application process. 
Awards are made on a funds available basis. Notification to eligible recipients will 
be listed on the Financial Aid Award Letter. 

Eligibility and requirements for disbursement of Endowment funds are listed on 
the Financial Aid Award Letter. 

Federal Pell Grants— Federal Pell Grants are awarded through a federal program 
which provides grant assistance directly to eligible first bachelor's degree 
undergraduate students. A student's eligibility for a Pell Grant is based on a 
congressional ly approved formula which considers family financial circumstances. 
Pell Grants are available to full- and part-time students with proven financial needs 
who are making satisfactory progress towards a bachelor's degree. 

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity grant-Awarded to students 

with exceptional need when funds are available from the federal government. 

Loans 

Federal Nursing Student Loans are available to nursing students only, with 
demonstrated financial need. 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 — If eligible and funds are available, 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. 



290 Finances 



F ederal 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 disbursed since July 1, 1997, the interest rate is 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. 

Students' parents pay an "origination fee" of three percent of the loan principal. 
This amount is deducted proportionately from each disbursement made. The 
lender may collect an insurance premium of up to one percent of the loan 
principal, which is 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. The parents will 
be notified in writing, with a full explanation if such a circumstance should arise. 

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. 

Monthly principal 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), the 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 
of need; that is, regardless of their or their family's financial status. 

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. 



Finances 291 



Independent undergraduate students may borrow up to: 

• $6,625 if they are first-year students enrolled in a program of study that is 
a fulf 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. Refer to SAU Graduate 
Catalog. 

Work 

Federal Work-studv 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 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. 

Students who receive Federal Work-Study earnings will receive 100% of their 
earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be applied to 
their student account. Further information is available from a financial counselor.

Other Grants, Loans, and Scholarships 

Certain other 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. VA benefits 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 VA 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 

General Requirements 

Financial aid awards are made for one academic year to students who are 
accepted for admission, demonstrate a financial need, and are enrolled for at least 
six credit hours on the Collegedale campus. 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 

Government regulations require all financial aid recipients to maintain 
satisfactory academic progress toward a degree as measured both qualitatively and 
quantitatively in order to receive financial aid. This requirement applies to the 
entire enrollment at Southern Adventist University— even periods during which a 
student does not receive financial aid. Failure to comply with this requirement 
may result in a student becoming ineligible for financial aid. 

This policy defines the minimum standards for eligibility for state and/or federal 
financial aid. 

Academic Progress Standards 

Qualitative Standards: 

Cumulative Credit Hours Attempted Cumulative Grade Point Average 

0-24 1.50 or above 

25-54 1.75 or above

Quantitative Standards: 

Students must complete and pass a minimum of 67.00 percent of attempted 
credit hours toward a degree to be making satisfactory progress. Incompletes, 
withdrawals, and failed courses count toward the total attempted credit hours. A 
repeated course counts as attempted credit hours each time it is taken. 

Time Frame for Receiving Financial Aid 

Max. Time to Receive Financial Aid 

186 attempted hours 
96 attempted hours 
1 90 attempted hours 
1 98 attempted hours 
103 attempted hours 
23 1 attempted hours 
1 32 attempted hours 

The above maximum time frame to receive financial aid is based on 1 .5 times 
the number of credit hours to attain a degree. Hours from the first degree will be 
counted as attempted hours toward a second degree. Taking a second major does 
not count as a second degree. 

Time frame for transfer students will be evaluated according to the hours 
accepted from previous institutions and the attempted hours toward SAU's current 
degree program. 

Progress Review 

A financial aid recipient's progress at Southern Adventist University will be 
reviewed at the end of each semester and will be based on the number of 
attempted hours a student completes during each semester of an academic year 
and the cumulative grade point average (GPA). 

Students who do not meet the above satisfactory GPA or completion 
requirements will be placed on probation. If the cumulative GPA or the 
completion rate is below the required level at the end of the probationary period, 
the student will be ineligible to receive financial aid and may file an appeal with 
the academic dean. 

Students may enroll for the summer sessions or subsequent terms at SAU 
without financial aid assistance or attend another accredited institution to fulfill the 
progress requirements. Academic progress for these students will be reviewed 
prior to the release of financial aid for the following term in which the student 
reaches necessary academic standard. 

Students accepted to Southern Adventist University on academic probation 
may be eligible for financial aid for the first semester in attendance. Financial aid 
thereafter is based on the above guidelines. 

Procedure for Appeal and Reinstatement of Financial Aid 
Students who are found to be ineligible for financial aid based on progress will 
be notified in writing from the Student Finance Office. If unusual circumstances 
occur that include, but are not limited to, personal or family illness, injury, or 
death in the family, students may appeal in writing to the Academic Progress 
Committee for continuation of financial aid. Students will receive a written 
notification as to the committee's decision.

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 education 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 adjusted gross income, number of dependents, number in college, 
allowable expenses, indebtedness, and assets. 

Financial Aid Qve^wgrd? 

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. 

Eligibility for Institutional Funds 

Eligibility for Southern Adventist University funds is based upon a minimum 
of six credit hours (except where otherwise noted) being taken on the Southern 
Adventist University's Collegedale campus. Co-op, transient, directed study, 
distance learning, Adventist Colleges Abroad, and off-site campus classes are not 
eligible for SAU funds, and do not count toward the six credit hours. 

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: 

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 envelope provided by the 
government or completed on the Internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. 

2. 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. 

3. 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. 

The following documents must be submitted only if you have been selected by the 
government for verification. The Student Finance Office will notify you if these 
documents are needed. 

1. The Federal Verification Worksheet, This worksheet should be completed, 
then mailed to SAU Student Finance Office. 

2. Copies of parents' signed income tax return (exact signed copies of all 
schedules and W-2 forms sent to the IRS). These copies should be mailed to 
SAU with the Federal Verification Worksheet. 

3. Copies of student's signed income tax return including W-2 forms. These 
copies should be mailed to SAU with the Federal Verification Worksheet. 



Finances 295 



Application packets are available at the end of January each year and may be 
obtained by contacting the 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 SAU has 
accepted. Students with a GPA below the policy stated above will be on financial 
aid probation for one semester. If the cumulative GPA or the completion rates are 
below the required levels at the end of the probationary period, students will be 
ineligible to receive financial aid. 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 student's eligibility for 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 and Advisement 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 after Southern 
Adventist University's Student Finance Office receives 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 receipt. 

Financial aid awards are made on a rolling basis, as long as funds are available, 
with the most needy 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 based on enrollment status 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. It is the student's 
responsibility to notify the Student Finance Office if they do not plan to return. A 
student's diploma and/or academic transcripts will not be released until an exit 
interview is completed. 



296 Finances 



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. 

RETURN OF TITLE IV FUNDS 

Amount of Title IV Aid Earned 

To calculate the amount of Title IV aid earned, the percentage of Title IV aid 
earned (as figured by the withdrawal date) is multiplied by the aid that has been 
disbursed as well as the aid that could have been disbursed. 

Amount of Title IV Aid to Return 

To calculate the amount of Title IV aid to return, the amount of Title IV aid 
earned (as figured above) is subtracted out of the aid that was disbursed as well as 
the aid that could have been disbursed. 

For further explanation, please contact a financial aid counselor or the 
disbursement officer. 

Financial Aid Refund Policy 

The SAU refund policy for students withdrawing from classes is outlined on 
page 274. A $100 administrative fee will be charged to students who withdraw 
completely. 

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. 

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

1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans 

2. Subsidized Federal Stafford loans 

3. Federal Perkins loans 

4. Parent Federal (PLUS) loans 

5. Federal Pell Grant program 

6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant program 

7. Other Title IV aid programs 

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. An amount owing to any federally 
funded student aid program will be covered by SAU and then charged to the 
student's account. 



Finances 297 



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. 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 have not yet received their first bachelor's degree who 
desire deferment on their student loan payments during their mission service 
placement must enroll in NOND 227 Christian Service I, 6 hours, and 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 Accounts 
Services. The section "Family Rebate" on page 276 has relevant information for a 
Student Missionary/Task Force Worker who has a sibling attending Southern 
Adventist University.
