In publishing this catalog, every reasonable effort has been made to be factually accurate. The publisher assumes 
no responsibility for editorial, clerical, or printing errors. The information presented is, at the time of printing, an 
accurate description of course offerings, policies, and requirements of Southern College. The provisions of this 
catalog, however, are not to be regarded as an irrevocable contract between the college and the student. The college 
reserves the right to change any provision or requirement at any time, without prior notice. 



Something to keep in mind — 

Although this CATALOG is not a textbook, you will refer to it often 

during your college 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. 

We have made every attempt 
to prepare this catalog so 
everyone may understand it. 
The college provides an 
academic adviser to help 
you. Although an adviser 
is helpful, you are the 
one who selects your program 
of study and you bear the 
final responsibility of 
knowing what its requirements 
are. 

Because changes may occur in your program before you graduate, 
you may encounter contradictions between this catalog and advice 
you receive later in your college experience. Do not hesitate to seek 
counsel from your adviser or the chair of your department. You may 
also wish to talk to the Director of Records and Advisement or the 
Vice President for Academic Administration.

This Is Southern College 



Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists is a four-year co-educational 
institution established by the Seventh-day Adventist Church* primarily to 
serve its constituents in the southeastern part of the United States. 

MISSION STATEMENT 

Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists provides students, faculty, 
and staff with an environment for balanced development of the intellectual, 
spiritual, physical, and social dimensions of life in harmony with biblical 
principles. In a context of liberal arts and professional curricula, our 
campus community emphasizes academic scholarship, vocational prepara- 
tion, cultural understanding, and a relationship with Jesus Christ leading 
to a life of service. 

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, 
man 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 man 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 man's rela- 
tionship to God and a commitment of service to mankind. Education, conse- 
quently, must focus on developing the whole person. Southern College 
attempts to provide a spiritual, intellectual, social, and physical environ- 
ment which encourages this development through the following specific 
objectives. 

Spiritual 

The spiritual goal of Southern College is to enable students to grasp 
Christian beliefs and values as understood by the Seventh-day Adventist 
Church. Along with three hours' 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. 



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



Academic Calendar 7 



Intellectual 

The intellectual goal of Southern College 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 College 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 
College is to encourage students to attain the social maturity necessary for 
successful family and community living. Southern College provides 
activities and courses aimed at developing healthy interpersonal relations, 
communication skills, and decision-making abilities. This goal includes a 
commitment by the college 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 College is to educate 
students to be active in promoting their own physical well-being. Southern 
College 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 College 
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 1944 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. 

SETTING 

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

ACCREDITATION AND MEMBERSHIPS 

Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists is accredited by the 
Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and 



8 This is Southern College 



Schools to award one-year certificates, associate degrees, and baccalaureate 
degrees. It is also accredited by the Seventh-day Adventist Board of 
Regents. 

Departments of the college are also accredited by various organizations. 
The Associate of Science and Bachelor of Science degree programs in 
nursing, including Public Health Nursing, are accredited by the National 
League for Nursing as surveyed by the Collegiate Board of Review. The 
Department of Nursing is an agency member of the Department of Bacca- 
laureate and Higher Degree Programs of the Division of Nursing Education 
of the National League for Nursing. It is also accredited by the Tennessee 
Board of Nursing and is recognized by the Florida State Board of Nursing. 

The college is approved by the Tennessee State Board of Education for 
the preparation of secondary and elementary teachers. Southern College is 
also a member of the Association of American Colleges, the American 
Council on Education, the Tennessee College Association, the American 
Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, and the National Association 
for Schools of Music. 

ACADEMIC PROGRAM 

Southern College offers 39 baccalaureate degree majors, 31 minors, 18 
associate degree majors, and 4 one-year certificates. Additional prepro- 
fessional and terminal curricula are available to students seeking admission 
to professional schools. (See "Degrees and Curricula," page 31). Ten 
departments offer secondary teaching certification. Southern College is an 
extension campus for La Sierra University, which offers the M.Ed, degree, 
and Andrews University, which offers the M.S.N, degree. 

STUDENTS 

Sixty-five percent of the students of Southern College come from the eight 
states comprising the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day 
Adventists. However, most of the additional states and 25 to 30 foreign 
countries are also represented. There are a few more women than men. 

Former Southern College students are now serving in the ministerial, 
teaching, medical, and other services of the Seventh-day Adventist Church 
at home and abroad. Others are engaged in advanced study, business 
pursuits, government service, research activities, private and institutional 
medical services, and the teaching professions on all levels.

Admissions 



Southern College welcomes applications from students who seek a college 
career that unites spirituality and academic integrity and who commit 
themselves to an educational program designed according to Christian 
principles as taught by the Seventh-day Adventist Church. The college does 
not discriminate on the basis of age, gender, race, color, ethnic or national 
origin, religion, or handicap. 

PREPARATION FOR FRESHMAN STANDING 1 

Applicants for regular admission as freshmen must submit two satis- 
factory recommendations to the Admissions Office and satisfy one of the 
following three conditions at the time of enrollment: 

Regular Acceptance 

A. Graduate from an approved secondary school, including Home Study 
International, with a grade point average (GPA) of at least 2.00 (on a 
4.00 scale) in major subjects 2 and have a minimum composite score of 
18 on the Enhanced American College Test (ACT). 

B. Pass the General Education Development (GED) test, have a composite 
score of 18 on the Enhanced ACT, and be eighteen years old by June 
1 (prior to admission). Each applicant must have an official transcript 
of his or her grades and credits sent to the Admissions Office from the 
high school most recently attended. 

C. Complete a minimum of eighteen secondary school units, fourteen of 
which must be in major subjects 2 , with a minimum GPA of 3.00 in the 
major subjects, and have a minimum composite score of 18 on the 
Enhanced ACT. 

Southern College must have received a final official high school 
transcript or GED scores and a transcript from the high school last 
attended from each new student before he or she will be admitted to 
registration. 

Acceptance on Academic Probation 

A If either the high school GPA or ACT composite score is below the 
minimum requirements as stated above, the student may be accepted 
on academic probationary status. 

B. Students accepted on academic probation may take no more than 12 
semester hours during the first semester. 

If both the high school GPA and the Enhanced ACT composite score are 
below the minimum requirements (2.00 and 18 respectively), it will be 
necessary for the student to take a minimum of six semester hours (in solid 
courses) and maintain a college GPA of 2.25 before being accepted at 
Southern College. These six hours may be taken at Southern College dur- 
ing the summer (last session excluded) or at another accredited college. 



Those planning to enter professions such as nursing or music education should 
consult departmental admission requirements. 

2 

Bible, English, mathematics, natural science, social science, and foreign language. 






Admissions 11 



Subjects Required for Admission 

Applicants to freshman standing must have the following subjects in 
their secondary program: 

1. Three units of English, excluding journalism and speech. 

2. Two units of mathematics, including algebra. 

3. Two units of science or an ACT score of 14 in science reasoning. A 
college class in biology, chemistry, or physics must be taken in addition 
to general education science requirements if this condition is not met. 

4. Two units of social studies. If one of these two units is not World 
History, HIST 174, 175, 364, 365, 374, 375, 386 or 389 must be taken as 
part of the general education requirements. 

5. Two units in a foreign language are required for a B.A. degree. If 
deficient, one year of a foreign language at the college level will be 
required. 

6. Computer competency is strongly recommended. 

ADMISSION TO THE NURSING DEPARTMENT 

Students applying to nursing courses as freshmen or as transfer stu- 
dents should refer to the Nursing section of the CATALOG for admission 
requirements. 

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students wishing to transfer to Southern College from another accredit- 
ed 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 College standards (see 
"College Credit by Examination" in the Academic Policies section of the 
CATALOG on page 41). A maximum of 72 semester hours may be accepted 
from a college where the highest degree offered is the associate degree. 
Back-ground 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 College with a 2.00 or better average. Only 
those courses that are comparable to Southern College 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 regis- 
tration. Those who do not have credit for first semester College 
Composition and three semester hours of college level mathematics 
will be required to take the Enhanced ACT (American College Test) 
prior to registration at Southern College. 



12 Admissions 

ADMISSION OF SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Mature individuals who do not meet the above college 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 

The Southern College classes that are taught at the site of several private 
Seventh-day Adventist academies (high schools) are for college credit only 
and are taken in addition to the student's high school load. These are 
extension classes and no high school level credit is given. 

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. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

An international student applying to Southern College must have com- 
pleted 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 College until 
the college 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 of Southern College will evaluate academic 
documents received for international students based on the recommenda- 
tions found in the World Education series of booklets published by the 
American Association of Collegiate Registrars and Admissions Officers and 
Patterns of Seventh-day Adventist Education, published by the General 
Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. 

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

Proficiency in English, both written and oral, must be proven before 
admission. This may be done by taking the English Language Proficiency 
Test (ELI) or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Students 
whose ELI score is below 90 or TOEFL score is below 500 will not be 
admitted. Students must reach the above stated score to be admitted to the 
college for the regular academic year. 

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

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



Admissions 13 



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

1. An admissions letter of acceptance from Southern College 

2. 1-20 form (Immigration and Naturalization Service) 

3. A valid passport 

4. A valid visa to enter the United States 

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

APPLICATION PROCEDURE FOR ADMISSION 

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

♦ Completed applications, budget sheets, and medical forms should be 
returned to the Office of Admissions with an application fee of $20. 

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

♦ Students transferring from another college or university who do not have 
credit for first semester College Composition and three semester hours of 
college level mathematics will be required to take the ACT prior to 
registration at Southern College. 

♦ Upon receipt and evaluation of the application, transcripts of credits, 
recommendations, 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 college 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 recommendations, more time will be necessary 
for processing late applications. 

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



Student Life and Services 



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

RESIDENCE HALL LIVING 

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

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

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

Southern College is dedicated to the elimination of architectural and 
prejudicial barriers which prevent any qualified person from attending. All 
applications are welcomed. Students who anticipate the need for special 
services are encouraged to arrange with the Admissions Office for a visit 
to the campus at which time the applicant will receive information concern- 
ing all features of campus life and can share with the college officials any 
information pertinent to personal needs. 

DINING 

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

CHAPLAIN'S OFFICE 

Any student of Southern College has the opportunity to enrich his/her 
personal relationship with Jesus through Campus Ministries' activities. 
Through the programs coordinated from the Chaplain's Office, students 
can engage in a wide variety of on- and off-campus spiritual activities. 

CARE ministries is the acronym for Collegiate Adventist Reaching 
Everyone. Student leaders working with the campus chaplain direct out- 
reach activities such as Campus Ministries, CABL (Collegiate Adventist for 
Better Living), Destiny Drama Company, Collegiate Missions, and 
numerous religious programs. 



Student Life and Services 15 



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

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

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

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 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 College 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 Center for test 
applications and test date information. 

HEALTH SERVICE 

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

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

The Health Service is available to all residence hall occupants and all 
students taking seven or more hours (three hours in the summer). The 
infirmary is available to all residence hall occupants. There is no charge for 
seeing a nurse or using the infirmary. There is a minimal charge to cover 
costs of equipment used in some treatments. Medications given are charged 
by the pharmacy. 



1 6 Student Life and Services 



All students taking seven hours or more must purchase the Student 
Accident and Sickness Insurance Plan or show proof of coverage by another 
policy. Spouses of students and those taking less than seven hours may also 
purchase the plan. A policy brochure describing complete benefits and 
terms is given to each student at registration. In case of major illness, 
students may be referred to off-campus hospital facilities, 

ORIENTATION PROGRAM 

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

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

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE 

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

SENIOR PLACEMENT SERVICE 

One of the services of the college is that of assisting graduates in 
preparation for seeking employment. The Counseling Center offers 
assistance in resume and cover letter preparation, graduate school and 
employment application processing, and job interview preparation. The 
offices of Student Services and Counseling serve as liaison services in 
bringing graduates and employers together through job fairs, employment 
interview opportunities, the senior placement brochure, and the 
maintenance of senior placement files. 

STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

Every student at Southern College who is taking eight or more semester 
hours of classwork is a member of the Student Association with voting 
privileges in the election of officers. Opportunities for leadership 
development and for cooperation in achieving the objectives of Southern 
College are afforded by the Association. The Association assists the college 
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 



Student Life and Services 1 7 



activities include the publishing of the weekly newspaper, Southern Accent; 
the yearbook, Southern Memories; the weekly announcement sheet, 
Campus Chatter; and the student-faculty pictorial directory, Joker. 

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

CAMPUS ORGANIZATIONS 

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

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

CONCERT-LECTURE SERIES 

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

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

In harmony with the objectives of the college, 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 
College 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 college and who willingly 
subscribe to the social program as ordered are welcomed. It therefore 
follows that since students at Southern College receive an education 
subsidized by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, those who engage in 
activities designed 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 college, 
who is uncooperative, and whose attitude gives evidence of an unresponsive 
nature may be advised to withdraw without specific charge. The use of 
tobacco or alcoholic beverages, the improper use of drugs, movie theater 
attendance, card playing, dancing, profane or vulgar language, hazing, and 
improper associations are to be avoided. 

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



18 Student Life and Services 



ASSEMBLY AND WORSHIP SERVICES 

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

E. A. ANDERSON LECTURE SERIES 

The E. A. Anderson Lecture Series is an annual feature of the business 
curriculum. The series is made possible by the generosity of E. A. Anderson 
of Atlanta, Georgia, for the purpose of giving the student a broader under- 
standing of the business world. The public is invited to attend the lectures 
free of charge; however, for a fee, continuing education credit is available. 
Lectures are presented at 8 p.m. in the E. A. Anderson Business Seminar 
Room, Brock Hall, Room 338. 

EUGENE A, ANDERSON 

HEILLER ORGAN CONCERT SERIES 

The Anderson Heiller Organ Concert Series was initiated in 1986 to 
provide world-class organ concerts. These concerts and workshops are 
presented by foremost organists from throughout the world. Selected 
performances are broadcast internationally on the American Public Radio 
Program, "Pipe Dreams." The series is made possible through the gener- 
osity of Eugene A Anderson of Atlanta, Georgia, for the education and 
enjoyment of the students and the public. Because of its uniqueness, this 
series attracts organists and other fine arts enthusiasts from all areas of 
the country. 

The Anton Heiller Memorial Organ, a 70-stop 108-rank tracker, was 
dedicated in the Collegedale Seventh-day Adventist Church in April 1986. 
A second instrument, a mean-tone organ with two manuals and 13 stops, 
is housed in Ackerman Auditorium. Both were built by John Brombaugh 
and Associates of Eugene, Oregon. 

FLORENCE OLIVER ANDERSON LECTURE SERIES 

Each year the Nursing Department at Southern College of Seventh-day 
Adventists brings nationally recognized experts in the health field on 
campus to address the professional community. Southern College believes 
education to be a dynamic lifelong process and is committed to providing 
professional nurses with continuing education opportunities, as well as 
exposing student nurses to the importance of self-initiated education. 

This series of seminars is dedicated to excellence in nursing and is made 
possible by the generosity of the late Florence Oliver Anderson. 

CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES 

Ackerman Auditorium in J. Mabel Wood Hall is the setting for the 
Chamber Music Series. Each semester two or three artists and/or 
ensembles provide a variety of listening experiences for students, faculty, 
and the community. Artists are chosen in such a fashion that over a four- 
year period a student can become acquainted with solo and ensemble music 
of many style periods. Master classes are often scheduled in conjunction 
with a concert.

CLASSIC FILM SERIES 

Christian education involves the difficult challenge of learning to live in 
a secular society while remaining critical of its values. To this end, the 
Classic Film series, sponsored by Student Services and the History Depart- 
ment, seeks to present films that are historically significant but also 
informative and entertaining. They are intended to augment the educa- 
tional and cultural experience of students at the college level and encourage 
the application of critical thinking to popular culture. Critical notes are 
provided to aid in deciphering the film's latent content from its manifest 
content. 

E. O. GRUNDSET LECTURE SERIES 

The E. O. Grundset Lecture Series is jointly sponsored by the Southern 
College Chapter (Kappa Phi) of the Beta Beta Beta National Biological 
Honor Society and the Biology Department. Five or more lectures are 
presented each semester by guest speakers. The general public is invited. 

The lectures are divided into two categories. The Technical Research 
Seminars are designed to update students, faculty, and the community on 
current biological research as well as to illustrate to students how biological 
knowledge is acquired through research. The Natural History Lectures are 
less technical and provide a general understanding of organismic and 
ecological biology, either by a description of the plants or animals in a 
certain region or an account of the behavior, habits, or ecology of certain 
species. 

ROBERT H. PIERSON LECTURE SERIES 

The Robert H. Pierson Lectureship is sponsored annually by the Depart- 
ment of Religion at Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists under the 
auspices of the Ellen G. White Memorial Chair in Religion to facilitate the 
training of ministers in Biblical Studies, Theology, History, Adventist 
Heritage, Homiletics, Administration, and in other areas of preparation. 

STALEY CHRISTIAN SCHOLAR LECTURE SERIES 

The Thomas F. Staley Foundation provides the Department of Religion 
with funds for a speaker to come on campus once a year. This individual 
is the speaker for a chapel service, usually holds a "Table-talk" during the 
lunch hour at the cafeteria, and serves as guest lecturer at several religion 
classes. 

INSTRUCTIONAL MEDIA 

The Instructional Media Service provides audio-visual services to the 
college administration, faculty, staff, and students. The full-time staff 
includes a director, secretary, and service technician. 

LIBRARIES 

McKee Library provides both print and nonprint educational materials 
for the students and faculty of the college. Open stacks, pleasant areas to 
read or study, current periodicals, and a large microform collection 
contribute to the enjoyment of learning. Special collections in the library 
include the Seventh-day Adventist Heritage Collection: books and materials 



Academic Enrichment Services 2 1 



by SDA authors and about the Seventh-day Adventist Church; and the Dr. 
Vernon Thomas Memorial Civil War and Abraham Lincoln Collection: 
books, letters, manuscripts, newspapers, pamphlets, pictures, paintings, 
maps, and artifacts of this period in American History. 

The combined collection of these libraries contains approximately 200,000 
items. Approximately 900 periodicals are currently received which include 
a large number of titles kept permanently on microform. McKee Library 
has an online computerized card catalog as well as a computerized 
magazine index. Various databases are available on CD-ROM. The library 
is a member of Ohio College Library Center and charter member of the 
Southeastern Library Network automated systems. 

The facility has been in use since 1970, and provides seating for 400, 
including 300 individual study carrels. 

MARINE BIOLOGICAL STATION 

Southern College is affiliated with two marine biological stations to 
enrich and supplement its on-campus programs. One of these facilities, the 
Bahamian Field Station, is located on the island of San Salvador, Bahamas, 
and provides the opportunity for students to study tropical ecology, both 
terrestrial and marine. This station provides lodging, classroom, and 
laboratory facilities for studying coral reef, sandy beach, rocky shore, and 
mangrove swamp biomes. 

The affiliation with Walla Walla College's Rosario Beach Marine 
Biological Station on Fidalgo Island in the Puget Sound provides students 
with opportunities to study some of these similar habitats in a temperate 
climate. This station in the state of Washington also furnishes facilities for 
summer classwork and research. Its close proximity to biomes ranging from 
sea bottom to Alpine tundra provides an excellent opportunity for instruc- 
tion and investigation. 

WSMC FM90.5 

WSMC FM90.5 (NPR 90) is a 100,000 watt, noncommercial, fine arts 
radio station licensed to Southern College. 

WSMC provides training for students in the field of broadcasting. The 
station regularly hires between 15 and 20 students as on-air announcers, 
or production assistants. The station is an excellent way for the student to 
receive hands-on experience in the field of broadcasting. 

WSMC represents the college to the Greater Chattanooga community, 
with a coverage area including a 100-mile radius of Chattanooga. Founded 
in 1961, it is the oldest noncommercial fine arts station in southeastern 
Tennessee. WSMC was the first radio station in a seven-state region to 
receive satellite capability. The station also exists as an outreach of the 
college — striving to enhance the quality of life in the community. 

The station produces high-quality fine arts, informational, educational, 
and inspirational programs. WSMC is affiliated with National Public Radio, 
American Public Radio, and the Adventist Radio Network. 

WSMC's broadcast studios are located in Brock Hall. The facility includes 
a studio-quality production room, news room, music library, and on-air 
studios. 



Academic Policies 



PLANNING A COURSE OF STUDY 

When planning their course work, students should acquaint themselves 
with their chosen program of study and graduation requirements outlined 
in this CATALOG. Students who have not decided their course of study 
before entering college may take a general program exploring several fields. 
This approach need not result in loss of credits if carefully planned. 

Freshman students may consult faculty members during the summer 
months before the beginning of the fall term. Students planning to teach 
should consult the Department of Education and Psychology to include 
teacher education courses as a part of their program in order to qualify for 
denominational and state certification. 

Degree candidates are responsible for satisfying all degree requirements. 
They may choose to meet the requirements of any one catalog in effect dur- 
ing the period of residency. If students discontinue their education for a 
period of twelve months or more, they must qualify according to the catalog 
in force at the time of their return. 

GENERAL DEGREE REQUIREMENTS: Baccalaureate Degree 

The general degree requirements for a baccalaureate degree are as 
follows: 

♦ Satisfactory make-up of admissions deficiencies. (See page 10).

obtain another associate degree may do so upon completion of the 
curriculum prescribed for the second degree. 

The work completed for the second degree must include at least 24 hours 
in residence over and above the number of hours earned for the first 
degree. If the second associate degree is earned subsequent to the first 
associate degree, the requirements for the second degree will be governed 
by the provisions of the CATALOG in effect at the time the student 
re-enters the college for work toward the second degree. 

♦ Students who wish to obtain an associate degree at the time they 
receive a baccalaureate degree may do so if the degrees are in different

Transfer Credit: Prior arrangements must be made with the Records 
Office to take courses for transfer credit at another college or university 
during any session the student is simultaneously enrolled at Southern 
College and during any summer after initial enrollment. See department 
sections of the CATALOG for classes which must be taken in residence. 

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

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

General Education Course Requirements: While recognizing the 
validity of many different general education programs, the faculty of 
Southern College 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.

AREA D. LANGUAGE, LITERATURE, FINE ARTS 3 9 

A graduate of Southern College can recognize the impact 
of arts and humanities on life and integrate such knowledge 
into personal experience. 

Language, literature, speech, and the fine arts convey 
ideas, values, and emotions. An acquaintance with these 
modes of communication enhances the ability to express oneself 
and fosters an appreciation of the cultural heritage of world 
civilization and the complexities of human existence.

A graduate of Southern College comprehends the basic 
concepts of science and can apply the scientific method 
to problem solving. 

A study of the sciences develops an inquiring attitude 
toward one's environment. It provides individuals with 
empirical and rational methods of inquiry and an awareness 
of both the potential and the limitations of pure and applied 
science in solving problems. 

Bachelor's degree students must take at least 3 

hours from each of 2 sub-areas. Only one of the 

following may apply: BIOL 424, PHYS 317, 318. 

Students who have less than two secondary school 

units in science, and a Science Reasoning ACT 

standard score less than 14, must take 3 hours of 

science above the usual requirements; e.g. associate 

degree students must take 6 hours and bachelor's 

degree students must take 9 hours. 

Southern Scholars must take a sequence of two 

classes from the same department See the "Honors 

Studies Sequence" section on page 30 of the

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 



30 Academic Policies 



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 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 College 
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. Beginning with their third year Southern Scholars 
will receive a tuition refund equivalent to four three-hour classes. The "per 
hour" rate for a 16-hour class load will be the basis for calculating the 
refund. Southern Scholars also receive a 100 percent tuition waiver for 
Honors Seminar, HMNT 451, 452, calculated according to the tuition 
waiver policy explained on page 238.

PREPROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

Southern College 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 pre- 
professional curricula are offered at Southern College: 

Anesthesia Osteopathic Medicine 

Dental Hygiene Pharmacy 

Dentistry Physical Therapy 

Law Radiology Technology 

Medical Technology Medicine Respiratory Therapy 

Occupational Therapy Veterinary Medicine 

Optometry 

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

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

REGISTRATION 

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

Late Registration. Permission to register late must be obtained from the 
Director of Records. Students failing to register during the scheduled regis- 
tration periods will be charged a late registration fee. The course load of a 
late registrant may be reduced according to the amount of classwork 
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 main- 
tained 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 Office, obtain the necessary 



Academic Policies 35 



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 "P." 

Auditing Courses. With the approval of the department, 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 examina- 
tions 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 may cancel a class for which fewer than six 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 

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

To qualify for a baccalaureate degree in four years, a student must 
average between fifteen and sixteen hours per semester. The summer term 
may be used to advantage by students wishing to complete degree require- 
ments 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. 



36 Academic Policies 



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: 

Maximum 
Course Load Work Load 

16 hours 16 hours 

14 hours 20 hours 

12 hours 26 hours 

10 hours 32 hours 

8 hours 38 hours 

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

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

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

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

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

FULL-TIME STUDENT 

Students enrolled for twelve or more semester hours and students in the 
last semester of their senior year who are taking all the courses required 
for graduation (but no fewer than eight semester hours) will be classified 
as full-time students. The completion of nine or more semester hours will 
constitute full-time enrollment for the summer. This classification is for the 
purpose of academic record keeping only. The Student Finance Office 
defines full-time and part-time status differently in compliance with 
directions from agencies offering financial aid. 

GRADING SYSTEM 

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: 



Academic Policies 37

D 


1.0 grade points per hour

AU 


Audit 


c- 


1.7 grade points per hour 


I 


Incomplete 


D+ 


1.3 grade points per hour 


P 


Pass 



A student may receive an "I" (Incomplete) because of illness or other 
unavoidable delay. Students who are eligible for an incomplete must secure 
from the Records Office the proper form and file the application with the 
teacher to receive an incomplete. There is a charge of $7.50 for processing 
grades of incomplete. Any incomplete which is not removed by the 
end of the following term (Fall, Spring, Summer) will automat- 
ically become an "F." 

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. 

The grade point average is calculated by dividing the total number of 
grade points earned by the 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, 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 SC 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 college personnel who demon- 
strate 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 Office. The Director of Records will further explain and clarify the 
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act to students, parents, or 
interested parties upon request. 

ACADEMIC HONESTY 

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



38 Academic Policies 



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. Other- 
wise 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. 

Departmental Policies: 

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

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty: 

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

When for any reason a student's Southern College or cumulative GPA 
falls below 2.00, the student will be placed on academic probation and 
restricted from holding office in any student organization. 

Any baccalaureate senior with a grade point average of less than 2.25 
in his/her major will also be placed on academic probation. Candidates for 
an associate of science degree must have a GPA of at least 1.95 before 
being accepted for their final year and at least 2.00 after attempting 53 or 
more semester hours. Candidates for a one-year certificate must have at 
least a 2.00 average at the end of the second semester of enrollment. No 



Academic Policies 39 



more than one additional semester of enrollment will be permitted. If the 
2.00 grade point average is not then reached, the student will be dismissed. 
Transfer students must have a grade point average of at least 2.00 in 
order to be eligible for regular admission to Southern College. 

A student will be subject to academic dismissal when the Southern 
College or cumulative grade point average fails to reach the levels indicated 
below. The academic record will be reviewed by a committee, and the Vice 
President for Academic Administration will notify the student in writing 
of the committee's decision. 

Semester Hours Attempted G.P^AJ Subject to Dismissal 

6- 48 1.50 

49- 64 1.65 

65- 80 1.75 

81 - 93 1.85 

94 - 116 1.95 

117 - up 2.00 

A student academically dismissed may not be readmitted until two 
sessions (for this purpose the summer is counted as one session) have 
elapsed. Eligibility for readmission shall include successful college-level 
work taken in another institution or other evidence of maturity and 
motivation. 

Students receiving financial aid must also meet an academic progress 
policy set by the federal government. For further explanation see page 245, 
"Southern College 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 Vice President for Academic Administration for considera- 
tion of their case after obtaining the advice and signature of the depart- 
ment chair of their major. The petition must contain a statement of the 
request and supporting reasons. Students will be notified in writing by the 
Vice President for Academic Administration of the action on petitions 
within five working days. Petition forms are available from the Records 
Office. 

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE 

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

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

2. If necessary, discuss the problem with the department chair. 

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 



40 Academic Policies 



Academic Affairs Committee. Both the student and the teacher involved 
in the case are entitled to appear before the committee or to present a 
written statement of the case. The decision of the committee shall be 
presented in writing to the individuals involved within three days of the 
committee meeting unless a later time is agreed upon by both parties. 
The decision of the committee is binding and will be implemented by the 
teacher involved or the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

ABSENCES 

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

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

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

When examinations are rescheduled because of three scheduled con- 
secutively 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 $63 per examina- 
tion. All rescheduling requests will be made on a form available at the 
office of the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

Assembly. Assemblies are held each Thursday at 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 assembly requirement may result in suspen- 
sion of registration. Exceptions to the assembly attendance requirement are 
made by the Office of Student Services only for legitimate direct work or 
class conflicts with scheduled assemblies. Any excuses for absences from 
assembly must be approved by the Vice President for Student Services. 

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






Academic Policies 41 



LIMITATIONS ON CLASS ATTENDANCE 

Classes at Southern College are open to registered students only. Infor- 
mation disseminated in the classroom or other places of learning is the 
primary product that the college 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 College campus share the rights spelled out by this policy. 

WAIVER EXAMINATIONS 

Upon the approval of the department chair 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 
involved. A fee of $48 per examination is charged. 

NONTRADITIONAL COLLEGE CREDIT 

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

The goals and objectives of the college 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 college 
credits should be earned through class participation. However, the college 
will permit a maximum of one-fourth of the credit required for a given 
degree to be earned by these nontraditional means. 

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

Not all classes listed in the catalog are open to challenge examinations. 
Students must obtain clearance from the department chair for 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 assigns a teacher to prepare a challenge 
examination. A student may challenge a given course by examination only 
once. No CLEP or challenge exam may be attempted after the student has 
been enrolled in that course beyond the second week of a semester. No 
course may be challenged as part of the last thirty hours of any 
degree. Grades are recorded for departmental challenge examinations and 
scaled scores are recorded for nationally normed examinations. Permission 



42 Academic Policies 



to take a challenge examination while in residence must be obtained from 
both the department chair and the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. 

Students may earn a maximum of twelve hours of credit by examination 
in courses that do not appear in the college 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 College. 

Fees charged for challenge examination and credit are listed under 
"Special Fees and Charges" in the financial section of this CATALOG. 

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

Correspondence, A maximum of twelve semester hours of correspon- 
dence 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, 
Washington, D.C., is the officially recognized correspondence school. 
Southern College recommends Home Study International for those students 
needing correspondence credit and accepts all such credits when the study 
program is approved by the college prior to enrollment. The college 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. 

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

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 Office before a diploma will be ordered. The graduation date 
will be the last day of the month after the official transcript is received. 

EXTENSION CLASSES 

Extension classes are college classes offered on the campuses of Seventh- 
day Adventist academies in the Southern Union as an opportunity for 
seniors to earn college credit in skills areas that will fulfill part of the 
General Education requirements at Southern College. (See "Extension 
Classes," page 12, for admission criteria.) The classes that Southern College 
accepts are: 

ENGL 101 College Composition 3 hours 
MATH 120 College Algebra 3 hours 

MATH 121 Trigonometry 2 hours 



Academic Policies 43 



The extension classes must duplicate as nearly as possible their college 
counterparts in content, degree of difficulty, testing, and grading. Students 
who successfully complete any of these classes will receive credit in Area 
A of the General Education requirements. Instructors are academy teachers 
who are qualified with appropriate credentials and experience. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Southern College makes continuing education credit available through 
the Records and Advisement Office. Sponsors of organizations wishing to 
offer Southern College 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 presenter(s) with 
evidence credentials. 

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

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

TRANSCRIPTS 

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

A student may receive an unofficial transcript for evaluative purposes by 
applying in person at the Records Office. Official transcripts given directly 
to a student will be stamped "Student Copy." No transcript will be issued 
for a student whose account is not paid in full or who is delinquent in 
payment of student loans. No exceptions will be made. 

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. 



44 Departmental Courses of Study 



COURSE NUMBERS 

Each course number consists of three figures as follows: 

mST 354 , Latin America (C-l), (W) 3 hours 

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



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

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

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

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

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



COGNATE COURSES 

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

Allied Health 



Chair: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Faculty: Joyce Azevedo, David Ekkens, Henry Kuhlman 

Adjunct Faculty: Jon Lechler 

Medical Technology: R. A Ramkissoon, Patricia Rogers 

The Allied Health Professions are rapidly growing areas of specializa- 
tion within the health care industry. Job openings are plentiful and pay 
scales are comparable to other professionals in health care. The depart- 
ment offers a B.S. degree in Medical Technology and AS. degrees in a 
number of Allied Health fields (listed page 49). 

ASSESSMENT 

The Allied Health Department at Southern College 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 College 
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: Henry Kuhlman 

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



Allied Health 47 



Occasionally predental 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 college and the hospital program. 

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

Written information about the affiliated hospital-based medical 
technology program is available through the college medical technology 
adviser. Acceptance criteria, pre-clinical course requirements, application 
procedures, tuition for the senior year, and program formats may vary at 
each approved hospital. Southern College charges a $55 recording fee for 
the clinical year.

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 College with an Associate 
Degree in Allied Health must meet the A.S. degree general education 
requirements of SC 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 College. The lowest acceptable grade for courses to be 
transferred is C. A minimum grade point average of 2.00 is required for the 
Associate of Science degree at Southern College, but grade point averages 
between 2.50 and 3.50 are considered minimal for entrance to the junior 
year of most clinical Allied Health programs. Some programs require the 
Allied Health Professions Admissions Test (AHPAT). 



Allied Health 49 



The major Allied health areas in which a two year Associate Degree may 
be earned at Southern College are: 

pre-Cytotechnology pre-Physical Therapy 

pre-Dental Hygiene pre-Physician Assistant 

pre-Nutrition and Dietetics pre-Speech Language Pathology 

pre-Occupational Therapy & Audiology 

pre-Surgeon's Assistant 

The department also offers one-year curricula to meet requirements for 
entrance into the following Allied Health degree programs at Loma Linda 
University and most other university programs: 

Occupational Therapy Assistant (Associate in Science Degree) 
Physical Therapy Assistant (Associate in Science Degree) 
Radiation Technology (Associate and Bachelor of Science Degrees) 
Respiratory Therapy (Associate and Bachelor of Science Degrees)

PRE-CYTOTECHNOLOGY 

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

PRE-DENTAL HYGIENE 

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

PRE -NUTRITION AND DIETETICS 

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

PRE -OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY 

An occupational therapist works with people whose lives have been disrupted 
by physical injury or illness, developmental problems, the aging process, and 
social or psychological difficulties. Occupational therapists use selected 
educational, vocational and rehabilitative activities to help individuals reach the 
highest functional levels possible, become self reliant and build a balanced 
lifestyle of work and leisure.

PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY 

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

inpatient 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.

PRE -SPEECH LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY & AUDIOLOGY 

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

Chair: Robert Garren 
Faculty: Adan Saldana 



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

ASSESSMENT 

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

Behavioral Science 



Chair: Ed Lamb 

Faculty: Terrie Ruff, Larry Williams 

Adjunct Faculty: Sherri Craig, Ellen Gilbert 



The Behavioral Science faculty fully support the educational philosophy 
and objectives of Southern College. More specifically, this faculty embraces 
the following beliefs: 

(1) God is not only the Creator and Sustainer of all life, but also the ultimate 
Source of all knowledge. 

(2) Man is created in the image of God, and possesses harmonious physical, 
mental, spiritual, and social attributes. 

(3) A loving God seeks to restore His image in humanity, thus preparing 
them for personal fellowship with Himself. 

We understand a redemptive education must focus on the growth of the 
whole person. The Behavioral Science faculty commits itself, therefore, to 
achieving the following objectives: 

Spiritual 

Behavioral Science majors will acquire an understanding of the basic 
beliefs and values of Christianity as presented by the Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. We, as their teachers, will provide class devotionals, 
Christian-service applications, and the encouragement for them to commit 
themselves to such ideals. 

Intellectual 

Those studying Behavioral Science at this college will perceive themselves 
as Christian scholars beginning a lifelong pursuit of knowledge. We have 
designed course-related activities and investigations to aid them in achiev- 
ing intellectual and career goals, and in acquiring the necessary tools for 
future learning. The Behavioral Science curriculum is structured so as to 
encourage critical thinking, perceptive discussion, intellectual curiosity, and 
cultural awareness. 

Social 

Behavioral Science students are expected to develop positive 
interpersonal skills, communication techniques, and decision-making 
approaches. The teachers in this program strongly emphasize the attitudes 
of acceptance, caring, patience, and service. 

Physical 

Students in Behavioral Science are encouraged to develop a holistic view 
of mankind in appreciation for the interactive nature of our physical, 
mental, social, and spiritual being. They are expected to establish balanced 
programs of exercise, rest, diet, study, work, and recreation. The faculty 
promotes such positive values and practices through example and 
instruction. 



Behavioral Science 63 



PROGRAMS IN BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE 

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

Students wishing to prepare for graduate study in community and/or 
family counseling, law, personnel work, sociology of the family, or family 
life education should consider a Behavioral Science major with a Family 
Studies emphasis. The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW) is offered 
for those students seeking preparation for entry-level generalist 
baccalaureate practice in a wide range of social service organizations. To 
achieve a complete preparation in these fields, however, the student is 
encouraged to consider further training at the graduate level. 

ASSESSMENT 

To help the graduates in Behavioral Science 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 coursework material. 

2. Take a standardized achievement test (PACAT) in the spring 
semester of the senior year. 

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

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

BEHAVIORAL SCIENCE DEPARTMENT STUDY TOURS 

The Behavioral Science Department sponsors a study tour to New York 
City yearly during Thanksgiving vacation and a study tour to Europe every 
other year. The objectives of these tours are to facilitate a better under- 
standing of peoples and cultures and to enable the participants to work 
with people more effectively. Academic credit is given for these tours and 
each requires classroom time (see SOCI, SOCW 296/496).

Biology 



Chair: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Faculty: John Azevedo, Joyce Azevedo, David Ekkens, William Hayes, 

John Perumal 
Adjunct Faculty: Edgar Grundset 
Summer Faculty: Laura Nyirady 
Adjunct Research Faculty: Ron Carter 

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 collect- 
ing, or wild flower photography. 

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

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

Extracurricular opportunities include membership in the Beta Beta Beta 
national biological honor society, a yearly lecture series on natural history 
and research topics (see page 21), as well as a premedical preceptorship 
program (see page 228). 

ASSESSMENT 

In order to help evaluate its teaching effectiveness and the academic 
achievements of its graduates, all seniors are required to take 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.

Chemistry 



Chair: Steven Warren 

Faculty: Wiley Austin, Sterling Sigsworth 



Since we and everything we touch, eat, wear, or use are made of 
chemicals, the study of chemistry is an exciting and yet practical pursuit. 
A major in Chemistry can be your key to a rewarding and challenging 
career in a wide variety of areas such as the basic sciences or industrial 
research, pharmacology, toxicology, chemical engineering, forensic 
chemistry, chemistry education, medical and paramedical careers, as well 
as many business applications such as pharmaceutical and chemical sales, 
patent research and patent law, marketing and consulting, to name just a 
few. 

The B.S. degree in Chemistry is recommended in preparation for 
graduate study leading to research oriented careers, professional applica- 
tions of chemistry, or post-secondary education. The B.A. degree is the 
preferred degree for high-school teaching, premedicine, or pre-paramedical 
fields and possibly for some of the business applications. 

ASSESSMENT 

To aid the Chemistry Department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, 
nationally standardized tests prepared by the American Chemical Society 
for each of the various classes are administered at the end of each course. 
The test results are evaluated, and teaching procedures and methods are 
changed as needed. Failure on these standardized examinations may cause 
the student to repeat certain courses and/or jeopardize graduation as a 
Chemistry major.

Faculty: John Durichek, Rick Halterman 

Adjunct Faculty: John Beckett, Judy DeLay, Clifford Williams 



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

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

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

ASSESSMENT 

In the spring of the senior year all BA, BS, and BBA students in 
computer science will be required to take a written two-hour departmental 
exam. The exam will cover general computer literacy, logic, set theory, 
boolean algebra, binary arithmetic, programming, data structures, and file 
processing. A detailed topics list will be published in January, and the exam 
will be given in mid-April. 

Students are required to make 75% or above to qualify for graduation. 
Students making less than 75% may request an oral examination over the 
material. Those who fail will be required to take additional classwork 
before graduation. The results of this exam are used by the department 
staff to evaluate class offerings as well as program requirements.

utilizing the computer. 

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

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

DEGREES OFFERED 

BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE IN PSYCHOLOGY 

Psychology has been a stand-alone major at Southern College for more 
than a decade, with graduates later pursuing study in such fields as 
marriage and family counseling, community and school counseling, school 
psychology, counseling and clinical psychology, and industrial and 
experimental psychology — as well as business, law, dentistry, and medicine. 
Statistical and simulation computer software enhance student research 
practice and training. 

At Southern College the psychology major is considered preprofessional 
and serves as preparation for later study at the master's and doctoral 
degree levels. In order to improve their chances for admission to graduate 
pro-grams, students will want to (a) achieve well in psychology and general 
education courses, (b) take as many psychology electives as possible, along 
with statistics and computer science, (c) obtain a competitive score on 
graduate admission tests (usually the GRE) taken during the fall of the 
senior year, and (d) apply to 10 or more specific schools for graduate study. 

ASSESSMENT 

The assessment of senior psychology majors takes place during their 
final semester. It consists of a one-hour oral interview of the candidate by 
the psychology faculty. During this examination questions related to all 
areas of psychology studied during the entire program are asked. The oral 
examination is graded on an Honor , Pass or Fail basis. A failure requires 
further study on the part of the candidate and another interview by the 
faculty members before graduation. 

Results of student assessment are evaluated by the faculty with a view 
to changing course content as needed.

ASSESSMENT 

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

Phase One, Formative Evaluation, consists of continual daily monitoring 
and feedback. The cooperating teacher provides informal conferences and 
a one-hour weekly formal conference with anecdotal records. The Southern 
College Formative Observation Form is completed by the college supervisor 
and the cooperating teacher. 

Phase Two, Summative Evaluation, is completed by both the 
cooperating teacher and the college supervisor. The instrument used to 
record the student's skills and behaviors is the Southern College 
Summative Evaluation Form . The student teacher is also evaluated by 



Education and Psychology 113 



his/her students when they complete the Student Evaluation of the Student 
Teacher . A self-evaluation is completed by the student through a video- 
taped lesson. The student and the college 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 College Teacher 
Education Evaluation instrument completed by the first-year teacher. The 
Supervisor Evaluation of Southern College Graduates is completed by the 
student's employer. Feedback from these instruments is used by the 
Education Department staff to make necessary program changes. 

Philosophy and Objectives 

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

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

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

Statement of Mission 

The mission of the Department of Education at Southern College of 
Seventh-day Adventists is to prepare, primarily for the Seventh-day 
Adventist school system, professional educators who can function effectively 
in a culturally pluralistic society and who are dedicated to assisting 
students in reaching their maximum potential in service to God and man. 

Objectives of the Teacher Education Program 

The teacher education program at Southern College of Seventh-day 
Adventists is designed to help the teacher candidate develop personal 
values and acquire the knowledge, skills, and competencies needed to 
function effectively in the teacher's role as a person, a facilitator of 
learning, a practitioner, and a professional. 

The Teacher As a Person 

To promote the personal development of the prospective teacher (which 
includes physical, aesthetic, intellectual, and moral values) by guidance and 
advisement through general education which results in: 






114 Education and Psychology 



1. an understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of man's creative 
activity in the humanities, social, and natural sciences; 

2. a development of personal values that recognize our pluralistic 
cultural heritage as well as individual worth and integrity and 
brotherhood of mankind under God; 

3. the ability to communicate ideas clearly and effectively in reading, 
writing, speaking, and listening; 

4. an appreciation of the value of health and the importance of 
health practices in home and family life. 

The Teacher As a Facilitator of Learning 

To provide a set of educational experiences that will enable the teacher 
candidate to master the skills in: 

5. planning curriculum encounters with learners with appropriate 
materials and instructional strategies; 

6. identifying learning objectives at appropriate levels; 

7. using diagnostic and evaluation strategies; 

8. handling classroom management and reinforcement strategies; 

9. applying principles of human growth and development and 
theories of learning to classroom situations; 

10. integrating faith and learning, along with emphasizing character 
development; 

1 1 . recognizing and encouraging creativity and the maximum possible 
development of student abilities. 

The Teacher As a Practitioner 

To maintain a learning environment that is conducive to acquiring the 
knowledge, skills and competencies that characterize successful practi- 
tioners through: 

12. enhancement of positive attitude toward self, intellectual 
curiosity, and independent critical thinking; 

13. continuing experimentation and innovation with new pedagogical 
practices and basic tools of learning; 

14. utilization of translatable research; 

15. on-campus instruction and off-campus field experiences in public 
and private schools. 

The Teacher As a Professional 

To provide a social-emotional climate and opportunities for the develop- 
ment of leadership skills while encouraging attitudes and experiences that 
foster professional growth by: 

16. participating actively in the campus student education association; 

17. becoming familiar with the professional organizations and their 
journals and the nature of the articles reported in them; 

18. keeping abreast with developments in education, school reform 
and legislation; 

19. participating in activities that enhance church, home, and 
community relationships; 

20. demonstrating a genuine interest and concern for the physical, 
mental, social, and spiritual development of the learner. 



Education and Psychology 115 



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. 

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

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

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

The first semester of the sophomore year but not later than the 
second semester of the sophomore year, the student should file a 
formal application for initial admission to the teacher education 
program. Application forms may be obtained from the department 
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 College. 

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

3. Have an overall grade point average of 2.50. 

4. Have completed ENGL 101-102 with a minimum grade 
ofC-. 

5. Show evidence of physical, mental, and moral fitness. 

6. Have successfully completed EDUC 135 with a minimum 
grade of C-. 

7. Have passed the PRAXIS I (Pre-Professional Skills Test) 
which is the entrance competency test required by the 
State of Tennessee. An enhanced ACT composite score 
of 22 or above will EXEMPT the student from the Pre- 
Professional Skills Test. 

8. Have taken the 16 Personality Factor Test. 

9. Have obtained recommendations from the Vice President 
of Student Services and the student's academic adviser. 

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. 



1 16 Education and Psychology 



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 representa- 
tive, 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 College 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 Department of Education 
and Psychology for authorization to do student teaching. Application 
forms may be obtained from the department 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. 

The following criteria are considered for each applicant: 

1. Completion of all professional education courses 

2. Cumulative GPA of 2.50 

Major Studies GPA of 2.50 
Professional Education GPA of 2.50 

3. Evidence of good physical and mental health 

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

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

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 39). 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 meet- 
ing 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 Chair 
of the Department of Education and Psychology. 



Education and Psychology 117 



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 College 
will receive recommendation for certification based upon the following 
criteria: 

A. Successful completion of student teaching assignment(s) 

B. Satisfactory completion of all credential requirements 

C. Recommendation of major departments 

D. Satisfactory scores on the core battery and appropriate specially area 
of the PRAXIS II and III examinations (National Teacher Examina- 
tions) — Core and Specialty areas) 

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

WHAT CERTIFICATES MAY BE OBTAINED? 

A Teacher's Certificate (Tennessee) 

A certificate is issued on the basis of a minimum of a Bachelor's Degree 
with a major in at least one subject teaching field and the completion of an 
approved teacher education program. 
B. Basic Certificate (SDA denominational)

Engineering Studies 






Engineering Studies Committee: 

Lawrence Hanson (Chair), John Durichek, Henry Kuhlman 



Southern College 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 College is affiliated, for the final two years. Southern 
College 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. 

The Southern College 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 College engineering studies program is compatible with 
baccalaureate engineering programs of most 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.

(beyond Algebra II) in high school. Those who haven't should take a college precalculus 
course at home during the summer. 



The total number of hours for the A.S. degree in engineering studies is 
sixty-four. Students who plan to continue their education at an engineering 
school other than Walla Walla College should take that school's catalog to

The English and Speech Department offers two categories of classes that 
view man's search for truth and its most convincing expression through a 
Christian perspective. Language and speech 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 25-29). 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. 

ASSESSMENT 

As part of a departmental assessment process, senior English majors 
complete a writing portfolio analysis, a written exam, a self-analysis, and 
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: Dennis Pettibone, Mark Peach 



History is the study of the human experience. It investigates mankind's 
ideas, institutions, and activities. In pursuing this investigation, history 
courses at Southern College 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 end of the fall or early in the spring 
semester, students will take a departmental exam. Preparation for this 
exam will include a one-hour independent study course (normally taken 
during the fall of the senior year) involving: 1) reading a selected few 
classics of historical literature; 2) reviewing one's history coursework 
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 coursework. 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 required analytical writing as part of the 
coursework. 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.

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 three hours of history. A student planning to minor in history in 
order to obtain a second teaching area for certification must take all eighteen hours 
in history and must include HIST 154, 155. 



146 History 



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 226. 

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 on secondary certification will automatically have the 24 
semester hours required for certification in that field. Additionally, one 
must take twelve hours of political science, six hours of which will count 
toward the history major. It is strongly recommended that the student also 
earn teaching credentials in a field outside of history. No specific support- 
ing 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 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 
classwork before reaching the final semester. Students applying for teacher 
certification must consult with the Education Department to draft a 
schedule of classes meeting certification requirements. 

Before the end of the sophomore year the student must apply to the 
Department of Education for admission to the Teacher Education Program. 
Before the end of the junior year, the student must apply to the 
Department of Education 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. Preparatory meetings 
and assigned reading are included in this computation. Course credit is 
offered under HIST 295/495 Directed Study in History. Cost of the 
tours includes charge for academic credit. 

History as general education: Freshman and sophomore students 
earning general education credit in history should take courses from the 
100 and 200 level. Junior and senior students meeting general education 
requirements in history should select courses from the 300 and 400 level.

Journalism 
and Communication 



Chair: Pam Harris 
Faculty: Volker Henning, Lynn Sauls 

Adjunct Faculty: Wesley Hasden, Will McDonald, Paul Vaudreuil, 
Douglas Walter, Billy Weeks, Kevin West 

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

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

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

Students enrolling in the Broadcast Journalism major receive 
preparation for careers in both commercial and public radio and television 
as reporters, writers and editors in news and public affairs operations. 

Public Relations majors are prepared for careers in every major segment 
of business, industry, government, the church, colleges, universities, 
hospitals and other medical institutions, and in a wide range of organiza- 
tions. 

The Journalism major, Broadcast Journalism major, and the Public 
Relations major also prepare students for entry into graduate schools 
nationwide. 

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

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

The Sales minor combined with a Broadcast major prepares the student 
for jobs in the sale of commercials as well as in station development. By 
adding the Sales minor, a student multiples job opportunities in the field 
of Broadcasting. 

Students who select both a major and minor within the depart- 
ment must also take a minor outside the department. 

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



Journalism and Communication 157 



INTERNSHIPS AND ON-THE-JOB TRAINING 

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

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

A Journalism Professional Advisory Council works with the department 
to provide internships that give on-the-job experience. The department also 
participates in the General Conference internship program in which 
students work in various denominational institutions. The college radio 
station, WSMC FM90.5 (NPR 90) and the community newspapers, East 
Hamilton County Journal and Hamilton County News Leader, provide 
learning opportunities for students in a number of courses. 

Campus Publications: Students can gain valuable experience as writers 
and editors by working on Student Association publications such as 
Southern Accent, the campus newspaper, and Southern Memories, the 
yearbook. 

ASSESSMENT 

To make satisfactory progress toward preparation for the job market, 
students msyoring in the department will be expected to attend the annual 
editor-in-residence meetings, the annual Communication Career Day 
meetings, departmental assemblies, and other presentations of guest 
professionals sponsored by the department. 

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

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

A cumulative evaluation form will be kept in departmental files for each 
student majoring in the department. This form will serve as a source of 
information for teachers asked to provide recommendations for students 
seeking practicums, internships, or job positions. Information concerning 
evidence of professional growth and achievement will be added by the 
departmental faculty annually and a copy of the form shared with the 
student near the end of each school year. 

Students in the department will be given a writing skills test when they 
take JOUR 103, Introduction to Mass Communication, and JOUR 205, 
News Reporting. On the basis of the results, advisers will recommend any 
needed remediation, which students must complete before registering for 
other writing courses offered by the department. Another form of the 



158 Journalism and Communication 



writing skills test will be administered when students in the department 
take JOUR 314, Broadcast News Writing, JOUR 356, Advanced Reporting, 
or PREL 365, Public Relations Techniques. Results of the test will be part 
of the information in a student's cumulative evaluation form. 

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

Mathematics 



Chair: Lawrence Hanson 
Faculty: Robert Moore, Art Richert 

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 develop- 
ment of statistical inference, and more recently the development of 
computers, to name just a few, are mathematical contributions to civiliza- 
tion 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 College by (1) introducing students to 
mathematical concepts and techniques and the disciplined, logical thinking 
required to successfully apply them to a variety of problem-solving 
experiences, (2) providing a stage of the formal education of professional 
mathematicians, (3) educating teachers of mathematics, and (4) providing 
appropriate courses for users of mathematics. 

ASSESSMENT 

All mathematics majors are required to take the Educational Testing 
Service Major Field Achievement Test in mathematics during the spring 
semester of their senior year. The results of this examination are used in 
ongoing review of the curriculum in mathematics.

Modern Languages 



Chair: Helmut Ott 

Faculty: Mari-Carmen Gallego 



This department offers the opportunity for students to discover French, 
German, and Spanish not only as living languages but also as reflections 
of the cultures, customs, and peoples they represent. The aim, then, is to 
provide both an aesthetic background and a practical tool 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. The Department of Modern Languages aspires 
toward helping Christians fulfill this responsibility to demonstrate good 
will, whether as travelers and business people or as respondents to the 
Master's gospel commission. 

ASSESSMENT 

The assessment of majors in French, German, or Spanish consists of 
three basic parts: First the candidates write an evaluation of the 
departmental program to state their perception of the program's effective- 
ness 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 College is a member of the 
consortium of colleges and universities which, under the auspices of the 
General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists, supports the Adventist 
Colleges Abroad program. ACA provides an opportunity for students of 
French, German, or Spanish to achieve proficiency in the foreign language 
amid the added advantages of an authentic cultural setting. 

The following institutions are affiliates of ACA: in Austria, Seminar 
Schloss Bogenhofen, Braunau; in France, Institut Adventiste, Collonges- 
sous-Saleve; and in Spain, Colegio Adventista de Sagunto, Sagunto.

TEACHER PREPARATION PROGRAM 

I. Philosophy 

The teacher preparation program of the Modern Languages 
Department is based on the belief that competent language teachers 
possess at least near native mastery of the target language, have a realistic 
understanding of and genuine appreciation for the culture of the peoples 
who speak it, and are able to apply sound educational principles and 
effective methodologies to their teaching practice. 

Such a competency requires that the candidates spend at least one 
school year living and learning in a country where the target language is 
spoken, and that they build a solid foundation in the principles and 
methods of education in general and of the teaching of modern languages 
in particular. 



II. OBJECTIVES 

The overall objective of the Modern Languages teacher preparation 
program is to enable the candidates to master the contents, develop the 
skills, and apply the methodologies required for effective language teaching. 

1. Content Objectives 

A. Speaking — Enable the candidates to achieve near native mastery of the 
target language particularly as it relates to vocabulary, sentence 
structure, and oral expression. This includes the ability to converse in 
a way that is easily understood by native speakers about everyday 
situations and non-technical topics of current public interest. 

B. Reading — Help the candidates to acquire the linguistic expertise 
needed to read materials of a newspaper level of difficulty on one hand, 
and literary texts on the other. 

C. Listening — Help the candidates master the language well enough to be 
able to follow without major difficulty radio/TV news reports, a conver- 
sation among native speakers, interviews, and short lectures dealing 
with non-technical topics. 



Modern Languages 175 



D. Writing — Help the candidates develop writing skills needed to take 
notes in the target language and to write cohesive summaries, to write 
social correspondence, and to produce a short essay about a personal 
experience or current event of public interest. 

E. Culture and Civilization — Help the candidates develop a knowledge, 
understanding, and appreciation of the culture of the peoples who speak 
the target language. This includes their daily patterns, societal 
structures, institutions, and value systems. It also includes general 
knowledge of the historical, geographical, political, sociological, artistic, 
and literary aspects of the target culture. In the process the candidates 
will also develop the ability to compare and contrast the target culture 
with their own, and to see how they relate, contribute to, and enrich 
each other. 

2. Professional Objectives 

The professional component of the program is designed to provide the 
candidate with: 

A* A theoretical framework about education, the learner, the learning 
process, and the acquisition of language. 

B. Knowledge of various theories and methods of foreign language 
instruction and the ability to modify instruction as appropriate to 
language and student population. 

C. Understanding of the developmental nature of language proficiency and 
the ability to measure student proficiency in various skills appropriate 
to the language being taught and to the level of instruction. 

D. Ability to convey to many different audiences, including students, 
parents, administrators, businesses, and community, the importance of 
foreign language proficiency as it relates to local needs and interests.

Music 



Chain Marvin L. Robertson 

Faculty: J. Bruce Ashton, Julie Boyd, Orlo Gilbert, Judith Glass, 

Patricia Silver 
Adjunct Faculty: Greg Bean, Karla Fowkes, Devin Fryling, Elaine 

Janzen, Nora Kile, Jan Parisi, Mark Reneau, Gordon Stangeland 



The faculty of the Department 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 college student as well 
as music majors and minors. 

The Department of Music offers two baccalaureate degrees, the Bachelor 
of Music degree in music education and the Bachelor of Arts 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. In addition, 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. 

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

Music majors must fulfill all the general admission requirements of the 
college. In addition, a prospective music major is required to take written 
and aural entrance examinations in music theory and a performance exami- 
nation in the applied concentration. To obtain freshman standing as a 
music major the student must qualify for MUCT 111 and MUPF 189. 

Further information regarding the entrance examinations may be 
obtained by writing the chair of the Department 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. (See Music Lesson Fees under 
Financial Policies section of this CATALOG.) 

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. 

Concert and Recital Attendance: Full-time music majors are required 
to attend twelve Department approved concerts per semester, except for the 
student teaching semester. Attendance shall include faculty and senior 



Music 183 



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

Music Ensemble Participation: All music majors are required to 
participate in a music ensemble every semester in full-time residence (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 Department of Music has an ongoing program of student 
assessment. This program includes the following: 

1. JURY EXAMINATIONS 

Progress in the area of a music major's applied music concentration is 
monitored through the jury performance examination required of each major 
at the end of each semester. 

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 Arts degree and 
2.50 for the bachelor of Music degree. 

b. A grade point average of 2.50 in all music courses. 

c. completion of the functional piano requirement. 

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

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

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

3. SENIOR RECITAL 

All music degree candidates will present a senior recital. The student must 
be registered for private instruction while preparing for the senior recital. 
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. 

BACHELOR OF MUSIC CURRICULUM 

The Bachelor of Music degree in music education meets state and 
denominational certification requirements. Students must apply for 
admission to the Teacher Education Program through the Department of

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

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

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

ASSOCIATE AND BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS 

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

A new class is accepted for lower division in the fall semester of each 
year with a limited number of students due to available clinical facilities 
and teachers. The upper division class is not limited in size. 

POLICIES 

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

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

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

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



Nursing 195 



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

The Nursing Department reserves the right to revise, add, or withdraw 
courses as necessary to ensure a quality nursing program. 

ACCREDITATION 

The programs in nursing are fully accredited by the National League for 
Nursing. They are recognized by the Board of Regents of the Department 
of Education of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists and 
approved by the Tennessee Board of Nursing. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

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

1. Write a self-analysis 

2. Complete an end-of -program survey 

3. Complete an exit examination

Chair: Jack J. Blanco 

Faculty: Ron Clouzet, Ron du Preez, Norman R. Gulley, Donn

Adjunct Faculty: Douglas Bennett, Ken Rogers, Leo Van Dolson 

Advisory Council — Ministerial Recommendations: SC Religion Faculty, 

Presidents of Conferences within the Southern Union, Southern Union 
Ministerial Directors, Vice President for Student Services, Director of 
Student Finance and Accounts, head deans of the two dormitories, 
college chaplain, college church pastor 

As an integral part of Southern College the Religion Department has 
been given the responsibility by the Board of Trustees to prepare young 
men and women for various church ministries. It also has been asked to 
provide general religion courses for all students. These courses are designed 
to enhance their commitment to Jesus Christ and their involvement in the 
mission of the Seventh-day Adventist Church. 

MISSION STATEMENT 

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

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

DEPARTMENTAL GOALS 

General Education Courses 

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

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

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

Theology 

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

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

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



Religion 211 



Religious Education 

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

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

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

Religious Studies 

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

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

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

DEPARTMENTAL EFFECTIVENESS 

The Religion Department is committed to develop an ongoing assess- 
ment and strategy to measure its effectiveness in harmony with the 
Mission Statement of Southern College, its own mission statement, and the 
recommendation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 

Faculty Assessment 

Effectiveness of the department'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. Departmental majors in the final semester of their senior year. 

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

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

Student Assessment 

The quality of the department's graduates as well as its general 
students is assessed by: 

1. A 16PF taken by all Theology majors in their sophomore and senior years 
with norms arrived at by extensive research of the performance of success- 
ful 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. 

2. The 16PF also provides the department with a personal evaluation of 
students. It is the intention of the evaluation program to help students 
realize their personal goals and maximize their potential. This may involve 
referral to a professional for personal or career counseling. 



212 Religion 



3. 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 students' files for future reference. 

4. A cumulative record of each student's activities is kept as a source of 
information and recommendation. This record includes attendance at 
lectureships, departmental assemblies, retreats, SMA activities, and other 
programs sponsored by the department. 

5. The religion portion of the annual assessment testing program is prepared 
by the General Education Committee, not by the Religion Department, 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 
department chair on behalf of the Religion faculty. 

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS 

Admission to Theology Program 

Students seeking admission to the Theology Program must make formal 
application the first semester of the sophomore year. (Upper class transfer 
students must apply during the first semester in residence.) A program of 
evaluation precedes individual acceptance as Ministerial Trainees. The 
various assessment profiles will assist the student and the faculty adviser 
in evaluating and counseling together during the period of specialized 
training. If at any time, after being admitted to the Theology Program, 
trainees give evidence of failing to maintain commitment to the criteria or 
preparation for ministry, they forfeit their standing as trainees and the 
department's recognition in their senior year as Ministerial Candidates. 
Theology students must have 55 hours with a 2.50 overall GPA and have 
taken the department's 16PF to be eligible to be recommended for 
acceptance as Ministerial Trainees. 

Ministerial Certification and Endorsement 

Those wishing to be recommended by the department for denomina- 
tional employment must fulfill the requirements as outlined for Theology 
majors on pages 214 and 215 of this catalog, pass the exit exams with a 
score of 70 percent or above, and be voted into Ministerial Candidacy by 
the department. 

Theology majors who are 35 years old and, because of unusual 
circumstances, choose not to prepare for Seminary entrance but still wish 
to major in Theology and be recommended for ministry, must take a 
Practical Theology minor and other courses as specified by the department. 
They will be recommended for Ministerial Candidacy if they meet the 
criteria set by their adviser, and their individualized study program is 
approved by the Religion Department. 

Directed Field Education 

The department requires field education of Theology majors. These 
experiences are designed to enhance professional development by acquaint- 
ing the student with the multi-faceted responsibilities of ministry, to 



Religion 213 



provide a laboratory for working with experienced pastors and lay leaders 
in visitation of both active and inactive members, and to allow experience 
in preaching to area congregations. These experiences are necessary before 
the student can be recommended by the department for church employ- 
ment. 

Summer Field School of Evangelism 

Full-scale evangelistic meetings will be conducted for two months each 
summer under the direction of the Southern Union Conference of Seventh- 
day Adventists and the Department of Religion. All Theology majors are 
required to participate in one such crusade. The department will offer six 
hours of academic credit in public and personal evangelism and the 
Southern Union will provide a scholarship for those who are approved by 
the faculty to participate. Students planning to take the Summer Field 
School program must have 55 hours with a 2.5 cumulative GPA and KELP 
321, 322 to be recommended for admittance. Applications and scholarship 
information may be obtained from the departmental secretary. Additional 
evangelistic opportunities for individual students and student teams may 
be made available upon approval of the department to accommodate 
requests from the conferences within the Southern Union. 

Admission to Religious Education Program 

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

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

Teacher Certification and Endorsement 

Those seeking Tennessee State Certification must fulfill requirements 
listed on page 118 of this catalog. 

Admission to Religious Studies 

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



214 Religion 



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 commit- 
ment 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-year 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 college catalog.) 

Graduation Requirements 

The candidates for graduation in the program for Theology must have 
a 2.00 overall, a 2.25 in their major and in the area of candidacy in order 
to graduate, and a 2.50 overall for Seminary entrance. In addition to their 
major they must have 20 hours in Biblical Languages, 24 hours in pro- 
fessional training, and 12 hours in cognates to qualify for Ministerial 
Candidacy. They must also give evidence of moral, physical, social, and 
intellectual fitness and demonstrate professional commitment in order for 
the department to recommend them as prospective ministerial employees. 
Those students pursuing the Religious Education major must have a 
2.00 overall and a 2.50 in education and in the field of certification as 
outlined by the Department of Education and Psychology. The Religious 
Studies candidates for graduation, from the Department of Religion, must 
have a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 overall and a 2.25 in their 
major as outlined in the college catalog. All majors must take their 
respective exit examinations and pass with a score of 70 percent or above 
prior to graduation. 

BACHELOR OF ARTS DEGREE PROGRAMS 

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

Non-Degree 



Preprofessional Programs 



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

ANESTHESIA 

Adviser: Bonnie Hunt 

Registered nurses who are 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 Department of Nursing. 

DENTISTRY 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Pre-dental training in college 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 G.PA 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). Information regarding the Dental Admission Testing 
Program may be obtained from the American Dental Association, 211 East 
Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 69611. 

The following courses must be included to meet the minimum require- 
ments for admissions to the LLU School of Dentistry: 

BIOL 151-152 8 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312, 313-314 16 hours 

ENGL 101-102 . 6 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 hours 

The following courses are strongly recommended: Ceramics, Principles 
of Management, Basic Accounting, Precalculus, Nutrition, Histology, 
Biochemistry, and Psychology courses. 



226 Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 

LAW 

Adviser: Ben McArthur 

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

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

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

1. ECON 224 Principles of Economics 3 hours 

2. PLSC 254 American Government 3 hours 

3. PLSC 471 Classics of Western Thought I or 

PLSC 472 Classics of Western Thought II 3 hours 

4. ENGL 313 Expository Writing 3 hours 

Plus six hours selected from the following courses: 

5. ACCT 221 Principles of Accounting 

6. ECON 225 Principles of Economics 

7. BUAD 358 Legal, Ethical, and Social Environment of Business 

8. BUAD 339 Business Law 

9. HIST/PLSC 357 Modern America 

10. HIST 374 History of England 

11. JOUR 427 Mass Media Law and Ethics 

Information about preparation for law school may be obtained from the 
Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, American Bar 
Association, 1155 East 60th Street, Chicago, Illinois 60637. For information 
about the Law School Admissions Test, see the pre-law adviser. 

MEDICINE 

Advisers: William Hayes, Joyce Azevedo, John Azevedo 

Secondary school students who look forward to a career in medicine are 
advised to include mathematics and science courses during their high 
school years. 

Most applicants complete a Bachelor's Degree prior to entrance into 
medical school. Exceptional students may be eligible to apply after 
completion of a minimum of 85 semester hours. Applicants for admission 
to the Loma Linda University School of Medicine should maintain a grade 
point average of at least 3.50 in both science and non-science courses. The 
following courses without an asterisk must be included in the applicant's 
academic program. Medical schools generally do not accept CLEP credits 



Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 227 



for these basic science courses. Classes with asterisks in biology, chemistry, 
and mathematics are recommended. 

BIOL 151-152, 313*, 316*, 330*, 340*, 415*, 417*, 418* 8 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312, 313-314, 323* 16 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

MATH 120, 181* 3 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 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 month 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. All of the above required science courses should 
be completed by this time to insure maximum performance on the MCAT 
exam. The exam may be retaken in August of the senior year. 

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 Testing and 
Counseling Office or directly from AMCAS and should be sent directly to 
AMCAS between June 16 and November 1 for entry in the summer of the 
following year. 

American Medical College Application Service 
1176 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. 

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. 



228 Non-Degree Preprofessional Programs 

OPTOMETRY 

Adviser: Orville Bignall 

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 ares of fine arts, language, literature, and the social sciences 
are usually necessary. 

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

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

BIOL 151-152 and 330 12 hours 

CHEM 151-152 8 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

MATH 120, 121, 181, 182 12 hours

Association, Division of Education and Manpower, 243 North Lindbergh 
Blvd., St. Louis, MO 63141. 

OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE 

Adviser: William Hayes, Joyce Azevedo, John Azevedo 

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

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

Requirements for admission are similar to those for allopathic medical 
schools such as Loma Linda University School of Medicine. 

For a reasonable chance of acceptance, a minimum grade point average 
of 3.00 should be maintained in both science and non-science subjects. 

PHARMACY 

Adviser: Sterling Sigsworth 

The bachelor's degree program in pharmacy normally requires five years, 

the first two years of which may be taken at Southern College. 

Admission requirements to colleges of pharmacy are somewhat variable 

so the student should consult the catalog of the school of his/her choice for 

specific course recommendations. 

Minimum admission requirements to the University of Tennessee College 

of Pharmacy at Memphis are; 

ACCT 221 3 hours 

BIOL 151-152 8 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312, 313-314 16 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

MATH 181 3 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 hours 



Non- Degree Preprofessional Programs 229 



Additional requirements include: 

Literature or Foreign Language 4 hours 

Social Sciences: 

Psychology 2 hours 

Other (to include Economics, Political Science, 

Sociology, History, etc.) 8 hours 

Speech 3 hours 

Electives 8 hours 

A minimum grade of C must be obtained for each required pre-pharmacy 
class. A higher grade point average will increase the chance of acceptance 
into pharmacy school. In addition, a satisfactory score must be achieved on 
the National Pharmacy College Admission Test. 

VETERINARY MEDICINE 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

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

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

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

BIOL 151-152, 316, 412 15 hours 

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

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

MATH 181-182 7 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 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.

a. Books and required school supplies (required school supplies limited to 
$85 per semester). 

b. Private music instruction. Enrollment for all music instruction must 
be made through the Admissions Office for a full semester whether or 
not credit is desired. One semester hour of private music instruction 
consists of fourteen half hour lessons. Refunds will be granted only 
when the instructor is not available for lessons. 

HOUSING 

Residence Hall Costs 

Dormitory accommodations for single students cost $1,530 for the eight- 
month school year and are charged on a semester basis in August and 
January. Room charges are based on two students occupying one room. A 
student may, upon application to the residence hall dean, be allowed to 
room alone at an additional cost of $335 per semester if sufficient rooms 
are available and s/he has 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 are allowed in the 
residence halls. 

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 nonoccupancy of the room, will be refunded. 

Residence Hall Deposit 

A room deposit of $100 is required of each dormitory student. In order 
to guarantee a room in the dormitory, payment should be made by July 1. 
After July 1, no room is held for a student whose deposit has not been paid. 
This deposit is held in reserve until the student graduates and/or 
permanently moves out of the dormitory. 

Apartment 

College-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 $230 to $320 per month. 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 or firearms are allowed in college housing. 

Apartment Deposit 

Married students and single students over 23 years of age renting an 
apartment from the college pay a housing deposit of $175 to reserve an 
apartment. 

Housing Deposit Refund 

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. The Housekeeping Supervisor at the Service Department will 
determine if the apartment has been left clean and undamaged. 



Finances 233 






FOOD SERVICE 

The cafeteria plan of boarding allows the dorm student the privilege of 
choosing food and paying for what is selected. Students are encouraged to 
eat healthfully by eating at the cafeteria or the Campus Kitchen where 
balanced meals are provided. Dormitory students will be charged a mini- 
mum of $85 per month which will be prorated for vacations and holidays. 

ADVANCE PAYMENTS 

Regular: An advance payment of $1,950 is required before registration 
with one-half of the advance payment ($975) being held for second 
semester. For new students entering second semester the advance payment 
is $975, and all other appropriate charges are applicable. When a married 
couple enrolls for a combined total of seventeen semester hours or less of 
classwork, they will be charged only one advance payment. 

One-half of the advance payment ($975) is held for second semester and 
earns interest at an APR of 2 percent less than prime for the months of 
September, October, November, December if: (1) the full advance payment 
($1,950) has been paid by September 1, and (2) the account balance as of 
December 31 is paid in full. Interest will be credited to the January 
statement. 

For students residing in any dormitory or married student housing, a 
housing deposit is due before occupancy and is in addition to the advance 
payment. 

International Students: In addition to the regular advance payment 
listed above, international students are required to pay the following: 

Supplemental International Student Payment: $3,000 is required to be 
paid before an Immigration 1-20 form will be issued. It will be held 
until the student terminates study at Southern College. This deposit 
is not a part of, but in addition to, the regular advance payment 
required of all students entering Southern College. 

Nursing Students: Upon acceptance to the clinical nursing program, 
students are required to send an advance payment of $285 to hold their 
placement in the class. This payment also serves as the first semester's 
Nursing Education Associate Degree Fee. The $285 fee is in addition to the 
Regular Advance Payment of $1,950. There is also a $285 fee charged to 
the AS. nursing student's account second semester. If a student applies for 
the nursing program but does not attend the college or changes to a 
different major, the deposit is refundable if the Department of Nursing is 
notified by August 1. After August 1, the nursing deposit is not refundable. 

ADVENTIST COLLEGES ABROAD FINANCIAL POLICY 

Students wishing to apply for study abroad under the Adventist Colleges 
Abroad (ACA) program must follow the procedures listed below: 

1. Obtain an ACA application from Southern College's Admissions Office. 

2. Complete and return the ACA application, along with a $100 application 
fee, to the SC Admissions Office. 

3. Follow one of the following payment plans: 

a. Pay the total amount of tuition, room, board, hospital and accident 
insurance, personal account deposit, and tour deposit of chosen school 
by August 1. 



234 Finances 



b. Semester System: Pay one-half of the total charges and tour charge by 
August 1. The remaining one-half must be paid by December 1. 

c. Quarter System: Pay one-third of the total charges and tour charge by 
August 1; one-third by November 1; and, the remaining one-third by 
February 1. 

4. Make all payments by cash, cashier's check, money order, or credit card. 

No college funded scholarships will be awarded to ACA students. When 
planning their finances for the ACA program students must: 

1. Have a current account at Southern College 

2. Have completed all necessary paper work for federal financial assistance 
and received a financial aid award letter before August 1. 

3. Subtract tuition assistance or federal financial aid from the total ACA 
charges due 

4. Pay SC for charges before the college will make payment to ACA. 

METHOD OF PAYMENT 

Residence hall and nonresidence hall students may choose one of the 
three methods of payment below: 

Payment Plan I — Cash in Advance. When the total estimated charges 
for tuition (minimum 6 hours), room, and board for a semester are paid in 
cash at registration, a discount of 3 percent for the semester or 5 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. 

The following schedule outlines how Payment Plan I would work for 
both a semester and the year: 

Residence Hall Non-residence Hall 

Student Student 

Semester Year Semester Year 

Total estimated charges $6,207 $12,414 $4,459 $8,918 

(see Estimated Student Budget) 
*(a) Less cash discount -186 -134 

(3% for semester) 
or 
*(b) Less cash discount -621 -446 

(5% for year) 

Net cash due at registration $6,021 $11,793 $4,325 $8,472 

Note: For calculating the discount, estimated charges may be reduced by approved financial aid and 
scholarship awards (excluding student wages). Cash discount applies to the cash paid at registration. 

Payment Plan II — Tuition Guaranteed Plan. The college 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. 

2. The tuition rate in effect at the time of the first contract will remain in 
effect until the student graduates provided full time continuous 



Finances 235 



registration is maintained not to exceed four years excluding a one-year 
leave of absence which may be given for student missionaries, ACA, or 
task force workers. This plan is not applicable to summer school. 

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

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

5. Participants in this plan are eligible for a 5 percent cash discount on the 
total estimated cost the first year of participation only. The next three 
years, the tuition rate will remain the same as year one; and a 5 percent 
discount will be given on room, board, and books only. 

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

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

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

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

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

Payment Plan III — Contract for Monthly Payments. Students desiring to 
pay educational expenses in installments on a monthly basis may choose 
this plan. 

Monthly statements will be issued about the fifth working day of each 
calendar month. Cafeteria charges will be charged through the last day of 
each month. Accounts are due and payable upon receipt of statement 
according to the following schedule:

Payment for summer school sessions is required at time of 
registration. 

Students with unpaid accounts on the 20th of the month will be 
subject to cancellation of registration and/or ID cards invalidated 
until account is current. 

Arrangement for final payment of the semester account must be 
made before semester examinations may be taken or before regis- 
tration for a new semester. 

INTEREST ON PAST-DUE BALANCE 

If a past due balance on the November statement is not paid by 
December 20, a service charge of 5 percent of the past due amount will be 
applied to the December statement. If a past due balance on the March 
statement is not paid by April 20, a service charge of 5 percent of the past 
due amount will be applied to the April statement. A monthly service 
charge of 1 percent will be charged on any past due balance for the months 
of May, June, July, and August. 

COLLECTION POLICY 

Students completing or terminating their studies with the college are 
required to make arrangements for payment of unpaid accounts prior to 
leaving by signing a promissory note. Payments due on noncurrent 
accounts that are not received by the last working day of the month will be 
charged a 1 percent per month service charge. 

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

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

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

At the time any account is turned over to the SC Student Loan Services 
Office, a carrying charge of 1 percent per month will apply. 

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

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

If the college 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. 



238 Finances 



LEGAL PROCEEDINGS 

Recognizing that former students owing money to Southern College 
involve themselves in various legal proceedings which can affect money 
owed to the college, the college has taken the position that no services will 
be rendered these individuals until court confirmation has been received 
confirming the legal actions taken. 

BANKRUPTCY 

Recognizing that the discharge of a debt through bankruptcy proceedings 
prohibits a creditor from subsequently pursuing the collection of the debt, 
the college, upon notification by the court of such discharge of a student's 
current school or loan account (s), complies with this legal prohibition. No 
further services will be extended. 

TRANSCRIPTS, DIPLOMAS, AND TEST SCORES 

It is the policy of the college 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, or any unpaid account for which 
the college has co-signed. 

Official grade transcripts will be issued for currently enrolled students 
when the students' accounts are current according to the payment schedule 
set forth above. No exceptions will be made. 

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

To expedite the release of these documents, the student should send a 
money order or certified check to cover the balance of the account when 
requesting the documents. Under provisions of federal loan programs, 
Southern College withholds any records when payments for these loans 
become past due or are in default. 

TUITION WAIVERS 

Tuition waivers are available for internships, cooperative education, and 
practicum classes. Ordinarily, the waiver is explained in the course descrip- 
tion, but students may enroll for a practicum or internship under Directed 
Study and become eligible for a two-thirds tuition waiver. 

To be eligible for a tuition waiver students must be enrolled in fewer 
than 11 hours excluding their tuition waiver class, or more than 16 hours 
including their tuition wavier class. The waiver is calculated on the 
margins of hours below 12 and above 16 resulting from the tuition waiver 
class. 

Tuition waivers, if any apply to classes involving tours, are calculated 
according to approved travel arrangements. 

REFUND POLICIES 

Complete Withdrawal from Classes 

A student who withdraws from all school work during the semester will 
receive a tuition refund based on the date the completed withdrawal form 
with all the required signatures is filed with the Records Office. A $100 
withdrawal fee is applicable at whatever time the complete withdrawal 
occurs. Tuition refunds are calculated as follows: 





Finances 239

4th Week 70% 

5th Week 60% 



Partial Withdrawal 

Refunds of tuition for semester hours dropped are made according to the 
date the drop form with all the required signatures is filed with the 
Records Office. Tuition refunds are calculated as follows: 

First week of the semester — 100% 

Second week through the eleventh week — 10% less per week 

No refunds after the eleventh week 

Shortened School Term (Summer or Other) Withdrawals and Changes 

First two (2) school days — 100% 

Third (3rd day through end of term) — Prorated through mid-term 

CREDIT REFUND POLICY 

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

If the student has received financial aid during the current semester, 
any credit balance will be credited to the aid funds, according to the 
Financial Aid Refund Policy (see page 247). Cash refunds will not be made 
to the student without authorization from the parent or financial sponsor. 

HEALTH AND ACCIDENT INSURANCE 

Southern College requires all students to be covered by health and 
accident insurance. Each student will automatically be enrolled in the 
college health and accident plan unless the s/he signs a waiver card at the 
time of registration indicating s/he does not want the college insurance 
because: 

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

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

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

NON-LIABILITY FOR PERSONAL EFFECTS 

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






240 Finances 



WORKER'S COMPENSATION INSURANCE 

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

STUDENT BANKING SERVICE 

When opening a student bank account, the student or financial sponsor 
may contact the Cashier's Office to make the proper arrangements. This 
is entirely separate from the student's school expense account. Withdrawals 
from this account may be made by the student in person as long as a credit 
balance and proper identification are provided. If a check is deposited into 
this account, the student must wait two weeks for it to clear the banking 
system before a withdrawal may be made. 

STUDENT PAYROLL AND CASH WITHDRAWALS POLICY 

Employment is provided for students through the Personnel\Student 
Labor Office for the purpose of meeting their school expenses. Inquiries 
concerning student employment may be made by contacting that office at 
(615) 238-3396. 

Students may withdraw up to 25% of their earnings for tithe and 
personal items if their account is current, or if they have a credit on their 
account. (If students have chosen to have their tithe automatically with- 
held, they may withdraw up to 15% of their earnings.) Additional cash 
withdrawals may be made by exception: 

1. Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their tuition and 
books, and who live out of the dorm and have a no-charge ID card may 
be allowed to withdraw all of their earnings for living expenses. 

2. Students whose parents pay their accounts using Payment Plan I or II 
are allowed to withdraw all of their earnings with written permission 
from their parents. 

3. Students under the College Work/Study Program must follow federal 
guidelines for cash withdrawals from their accounts. They must contact 
their financial counselor for more information. 

The payroll period normally covers a four-week time frame, with the 
cutoff date being 10-14 working days prior to the end of the month. Earn- 
ings will be credited to students' accounts when the monthly statements 
have run. 

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

No cash may be withdrawn until students have received their 
monthly statement (7-10 working days after the last day of the 
month). Students must bring their current monthly statement with 
them to the Student Finance Office* 

CHECK CASHING 

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



Finances 241 



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

CREDIT CARDS 

The Cashier's Office honors VISA, MasterCard, 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; and, 4) expiration date. 

STUDENT LABOR REGULATIONS 

Work opportunities are available in departments and industries 
operated by the college and at local private businesses. Students seeking 
employment should contact the Personnel/Student Employment office for 
a listing of available positions or to register their employment needs. 

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

All hiring formalities are made in the Personnel/Student Employment 
Office. Students must bring their Social Security cards and one identifi- 
cation, e.g., passport, driver's license, or original birth certificate, in order 
to complete the hiring process legally. Students who are not American 
citizens must produce an unexpired employment authorization document 
such as a valid 1-20 or other legal document before employment can be 
arranged. 

Students are expected to maintain satisfactory job performance and 
meet all work appointments, including 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 superin- 
tendent 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 Personnel/Student Employment Office. Should a student receive 
opportunities for more favorable employment during a school term, the 
transfer must be made through the Personnel/Student Employment Office 
and the two employing departments. If a financial plan requires work, the 
student must NOT drop his/her work schedule without making proper 
arrangements with the Personnel/Student Employment Office. To do so 
may result in suspension from class attendance and invalidation of ID card 
until proper arrangements are made. 

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

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



242 Finances 



Students may work off campus; however, permission may be withheld 
for off-campus employment that could be detrimental to a student's health 
or character development. Any exceptions to the financial policies will be 
considered by the Financial Appeals Committee. 

SUMMER WORK INCENTIVE PROGRAM 

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

2. Two-thirds of the dormitory student's summer rent to be refunded, 
provided: 

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

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

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

LABOR FOR FOREIGN STUDENTS 

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

STUDENT TITHING 

Southern College encourages the payment of tithe and offerings by its 
student workers. In order to facilitate this practice, arrangements may be 
made by the student (except for those employed in the Federal Work-Study 
Program) to have 10 percent of his/her school earnings charged to his/her 
account as tithe and 2 percent for offerings. These funds are then 
transferred by the college to the treasurer of the Collegedale Seventh-day 
Adventist Church. 

STUDENT MISSIONS PROGRAM/TASK FORCE POSITIONS 

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

Those students who desire deferment on their student loan payments 
during their mission service placement must enroll in: NOND 227 
Christian Service I, 6 hours, 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 avail- 
able during the year of service. Tuition is charged at 10 percent of the 
current rate. Specific details regarding academic assignments may be 
obtained from the Chaplain's Office. 

Before final authorization may be obtained, all students going as Student 
Missionaries or Task Force workers must be cleared by the Student 
Finance Office.

POST GRADUATE TUITION PLAN 

A Post Graduate Tuition Plan has been established for the purpose of 
assisting students who have graduated from an accredited college/university 
and have an earned bachelor's degree. The plan allows eligible students to 
enroll in classes for one-half tuition. Tuition rates are as follows: 

1-11 Semester Hours $179.00 

12-16 Semester Hours $2,104.00 

17+Hours (in excess of 16 hours) $134.00 

The provisions that apply are: 

1. To be eligible for the Post Graduate Tuition Plan, a student must have 
graduated with a bachelor's degree at least two years before entering the 
program. 

2. Applicants must have a clear financial SC account and all loan payments 
must be up-to-date at the time of registration before the Post Graduate 
Tuition Plan is approved. To continue to participate in the plan, students 
must reapply each semester. 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. Regular readmission criteria apply to this program. Completed 
applications and other college transcripts must be on file in the 
Admissions Office no later than four weeks prior to the beginning of the 
semester for which the graduate is applying. 

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

5. 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, independent study, directed 
study, student teaching, internships, A.S. nursing, the fifth year of a five- 
year degree program, or a program where a tuition discount is already in 
effect. 

6. Since the Post Graduate Tuition Plan offer is for tuition only, it does 
not apply to lab fees, surcharges for applicable courses, dormitory 
charges, books, or cafeteria charges. 

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

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 
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 where 
required. 

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

FINANCIAL AID 

Southern College provides financial aid for students in the form of loans, 
grants, scholarships, and employment. No applicant for financial aid will 
be denied assistance on the basis of sex, race, color, national origin, or 
ethnic group. 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, PO. Box 370, 
Collegedale, Tennessee 37315-0370, (1-800-SOUTHERN), for information 
about and applications for financial aid. Applications received by May 1 will 
be given preference. Applications received after May 1 will be processed as 
long as time and funds permit. 

General Requirements. Financial aid awards are made for one academic 
year to students who are accepted for admission, plan to take at least 
twelve semester hours of classwork each semester, and demonstrate 
financial need. Class load exceptions must be approved by the Student 
Finance Office. 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. 

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

If a student whose financial aid has been suspended for any of the above 
reasons feels that unusual and unavoidable circumstances led to this 
suspension, the suspension may be appealed to the Academic Progress 
Committee. This policy is generally applied to financial aid from 
institutional and private sources as well as federal programs. 

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

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



Finances 245 



SOUTHERN COLLEGE ACADEMIC PROGRESS 
FOR FEDERAL AND INSTITUTIONAL 
STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

According to the 1986 Higher Education Amendments, all financial aid 
recipients must maintain satisfactory academic progress toward a degree, 
both in a qualitative and a quantitative measure, in order to continue to 
receive financial aid. 

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

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

1. Full time 12 hours or more 

2. 3/4 time 9-11 hours 

3. 1/2 time 6-8 hours 

This would allow a student the equivalent of 10 full-time semesters to 
complete a four year degree; and the equivalent of six full-time semesters 
to complete a two year degree. 

Formula For Academic Progress 

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

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



Cumulative 


Required GPA Level 


Semester Hours 


(Includes Resident and Cumulative GPA) 


6- 48 


1.50 


49- 64 


1.65 


65- 80 


1.75 


81- 93 


1.85 


94 - 119 


1.95 


120 up 


2.00 



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

Financial Aid Probation Policy 

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

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



246 Finances 



Procedure for Appeal and Reinstatement of Financial Aid 

Students may submit a written appeal to the Academic Progress 
Committee describing the circumstances which contributed to their failure 
to make academic progress. This appeal must also include an outlined 
program of commitment to meet measurable satisfactory academic require- 
ments. 

When financial aid is suspended, a request for reinstatement may be 
made when the student has completed a minimum of 12 additional 
semester hours and has met the satisfactory academic requirements. 

Provisions for Transfer Students 

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

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

No federal aid will be available for classes taken as a transient student 
without a transient letter and approval by the Academic Progress 
Committee. 

A Southern College student who is enrolled as a transient student on 
another campus will be eligible for financial aid based on the number of 
hours enrolled on the Southern College campus. The following is an 
example: 

1. Enrollment status of 12 hours or more on SC campus and additional 
transient hours are taken off-campus — 100% eligibility. 

2. Enrollment status of 9-11 hours on SC campus and additional transient 
hours taken off-campus — 75% eligibility. 

3. Enrollment status of 6-8 hours on SC campus and additional transient 
hours taken off-campus — 50% eligibility. 

Eligibility for Federal Pell Grant, Federal Family Education Loans 
(Stafford, Unsubsidized Stafford, Parent PLUS) wul be based on total 
hours enrolled at both institutions. 

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

To apply for all types of financial aid, the following documents must be 
submitted annually for the federal, state, and institutional aid programs: 

1. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). 

2. The Southern College application for financial aid (Form B). 

3. Southern College Admissions application. 

4. The financial aid transcript (required only of students who attended 
other colleges or universities before coming to Southern College). 

5. Copies of parents' income tax return (exact signed copies of all 
schedules and W-2 forms sent to IRS). 



Finances 247 



6. Copies of student income tax return including W-2 forms. 

7. Guaranteed Student Loan applications from hometown lender. 
(Southern College has arranged for last-resort lenders for students 
whose hometown lenders do not participate in the GSL program or for 
any reason refuse to make the loan). 

Applications are available in January of each year and may be obtained 
by contacting Southern College 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. 

Financial Aid Award Procedures 

The federal government will mail to the student the result of his/her 
financial aid application in the form of a Student Aid Report (SAR). The 
signed SAR must be turned in to the Student Finance Office after which 
an Offer of Financial Aid will be sent to each applicant. To confirm and 
reserve the funds offered, the student must 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 neediest students receiving priority of funds. The 
financial aid award package will usually consist of: 1) work, 2) loan, 3) 
grant or scholarship. 

Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds 

Financial aid awards are disbursed equally each semester. To have funds 
released to statements, students must sign vouchers, and other required 
documents at the Disbursement Office in Wright Hall. Funds cannot be 
credited to student statements until this procedure is followed. 

Financial Aid Overawards 

When financial aid recipients receive additional resources not included 
in the financial aid award letter, they must be reported 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. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID 

REFUND AND REPAYMENT POLICIES 

Financial Aid Refund Policy 

The tuition refund policy for students withdrawing from classes is 
outlined on page 238. 

Since financial aid is considered to be used first for direct educational 
costs (tuition, fees, board, and books), when a student withdraws from all 
classes and under the refund policy receives a refund of tuition, fees, 
dormitory rent, and other charges, the refund will be used to reimburse 
financial aid credited to the student account. The amount that must be 
repaid to Federal Title IV funds is detennined by applying the following formula: 



248 Finances 



Total Amount of Title IV Aid Awarded for Period (excluding CWSP) 
REFUND X Total Amount of All Aid Awarded for Period (excluding employment) 

According to Federal regulation, refunds due to Title IV programs must 
be allocated in the following order: 

1. Outstanding balances on Federal Family Education Loan Programs 
— Stafford Loans, Unsubsidized Stafford Loans, Parent Loans 

2. Outstanding balances on Federal Perkins Loans 

3. Federal Pell Grant Program 

4. Federal SEOG Program 

5. Other Title IV Programs 

6. Student/Parent 

Financial Aid Repayment Policy 

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

VETERANS 

Southern College is approved for the training of veterans as an 
accredited training institution. VA. benefits are not available to students 
on the Orlando Campus and may not be available for students enrolled in 
classes offered off the Collegedale campus. Those who qualify for educa- 
tional benefits should contact the nearest Veterans' Administration Office. 

Veterans or other eligible persons are required to attend classes in order 
to be eligible for educational benefits. Southern College 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, 
noncredit courses (except for a required remedial course), and 
correspondence work cannot be certified. 

TYPES OF FINANCIAL AID 

Scholarships 

Southern College institutional scholarships are awarded from a variety 
of scholarship funds to students who have financial need, are achieving 
academically, and are working part time. These awards usually range from 
$200 to $1,000 per year depending upon the student's need and availability 
of funds. 

If the student's grade point average (GPA) falls below the required level, 
the SC scholarship will be deferred or canceled. The amount of the SC 
scholarship will be reduced by the amount the student receives in funding 
from other resources that exceeds the total budgeted expenses for the 
school year subject to federal regulations. 

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



Finances 249 



ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded to incoming freshmen who 
graduate with a 3.50 or higher GPA from academies or secondary schools, 
are recommended by their faculty, and enroll at Southern College for a 
minimum of twelve semester hours. 

For those incoming freshmen students who have a high school GPA of 
3.85 or above and an ACT composite score of 28 or above, a high academic 
scholarship of $6,500 over four years is available. Two thousand dollars will 
be awarded the first year at SC and $1,500 for each of the following three 
years. The student must maintain an SC GPA of 3.50 and carry not less 
than 14 semester hours of class work each semester enrolled. 

ACT SCHOLARSHIPS — Incoming freshmen with a composite score of 
26-30 are eligible for a $700 award if they maintain a college GPA of 3.00 
each semester of the first year they are enrolled at Southern College. 
Incoming freshmen with a composite score of 31-36 are eligible for an $850 
award if they maintain a college GPA of 3.25 each semester of the first year 
they are enrolled at Southern College. Students must enroll at Southern 
College for a minimum of twelve semester hours. 

CHURCH AND/OR CONFERENCE MATCHING PLAN — Southern 
College will participate in a matching plan, matching one-third of the total 
scholarship funds received from a church or conference. The student 
must be enrolled for a minimum of 12 hours. Funds will not be matched 
for past-due accounts for prior years and will not exceed $1,000 per student 
per year. The participating church and/or conference must complete and 
sign the matching application form certifying that their appropriation came 
from local church funds, not from the student, the student's parents or 
relatives, and is not for wages or pay for services rendered by the student. 
These forms may be obtained from the Student Finance Office. 

LEADERSHIP SCHOLARSHIPS are awarded to incoming freshmen 
who have served as S.A. President, S.A. Vice-President, S.A. Spiritual Vice- 
President, Senior Class President, \fearbook Editor, and School Paper 
Editor, provided they enroll at Southern College for a minimum of twelve 
semester hours. 

NATIONAL ACADEMIC RECOGNITION AWARDS are awarded to 
finalists in the National Merit contest. Finalists receive tuition-free 
scholarship for four continuous years at Southern College. They must 
maintain an SC GPA of 3.50 and enroll each semester for not less than 15 
semester hours. 

SOUTHERN SCHOLARS' SCHOLARSHIP —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. Upon 
successful completion of the program students will receive a tuition refund 
equivalent to four three-hour classes. The "per hour" rate for a 16-hour 
class load will be the basis for calculating the refund. Southern Scholars 
also receive a 100 percent tuition waiver for Honors Seminar, HMNT 451, 
452, calculated according to the tuition waiver policy explained on page 
238. 

STUDENT MISSIONARY/TASK FORCE SCHOLARSHIPS — Students 
who were approved by Southern College to serve as Student Missionaries 
or Task Force Workers may upon the completion of a year of service apply 



250 Finances 



for a $1,000 scholarship through the Chaplain's Office if they are enrolled 
at SC for a minimum of 12 hours. 

SUMMER CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS — Students participating in 
conference-sponsored summer camp programs will receive credit from 
Southern College for 50 percent of the net amount receipted to the 
student's statement upon enrollment of a minimum of 12 semester hours. 
Students participating in the John Hancock Center for Youth Ministry 
Inner City summer program will he provided scholarship assistance on the 
same basis as summer camp scholarship recipients. Funds will not be 
matched for past due accounts for prior years. 

Grants 

ENDOWMENT GRANT — These funds are awarded to students who 
have established financial need through the federal aid application process. 
Awards are made on funds available basis. Notification to eligible recipients 
will be made through the Offer of Financial Aid. 

Eligibility and requirements for disbursement of Endowment funds are 
listed on the Offer of Financial Aid. Students should be aware that they 
must work the required number of hours in order to receive Endowment 
Grant funds. 

FEDERAL PELL GRANT PROGRAM is a federal program which 
provides grant assistance directly to eligible first-degree undergraduate 
students. A student's eligibility for a Pell Grant is based on a 
congressionally-approved formula which considers family financial 
circumstances. 

FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY 
GRANT — Limited funds are available to students with exceptional 
financial need. 

STATE STUDENT INCENTIVE GRANTS — These grants are made 
possible from federal and state funds to the residents of Alaska, 
Connecticut, Delaware, District of Columbia, Maine, Maryland, 
Massachusetts, New Jersey, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, 
Tennessee, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia. Students should 
check with their states' grant agencies for additional information. 

Loans 

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

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

FEDERAL PLUS LOANS enable parents with good credit histories to 
borrow for each child who is enrolled at least half-time and is a dependent 
student. These loans, like Federal Stafford Loans, are made by a lender 
such as a bank, credit union, or savings and loan association. The yearly 



Finances 251 



loan limit is students' cost of education minus any estimated financial 
aid they are eligible for. 

For PLUS loans first disbursed on or after July 1, 1994, the interest 
rate will be variable, but not higher than 9 percent. From July 1, 1993, 
through June 30, 1994, the interest rate was 6.64 percent for parents who 
borrowed on or after October 1, 1992. Variable interest rates are set each 
June. For more information on their interest rate, parents should contact 
the organization that holds their loan. That organization will also notify 
the parents of later interest rate changes. 

Students' parents will pay an "origination fee" of 3 percent of the loan 
principal. This amount must be deducted proportionately from each 
disbursement made. The lender may collect an insurance premium of up 
to 1 percent of the loan principal, which must also be deducted propor- 
tionately from each disbursement. 

The procedure for applying is the same as for a Federal Stafford Loan. 
Note that the school 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. 

For loans first disbursed on or after October 1, 1993, the lender must 
send the loan proceeds to your school in at least two payments. Payments 
will be sent either by electronic transfer or by check made co-payable to 
your school and your parents. No payment may exceed one-half of the loan 
amount. 

Repayment begins within 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 being in school), students' parents won't begin repaying 
any principal until the deferment ends. Deferments don't apply to 
interest, although the organization that holds the loan may let the 
interest accumulate until the deferment ends. Note, however, that 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 guaranty agency in each state and reinsured by the federal 
government. A borrower must repay this loan. 

Students may qualify for a "subsidized" Federal Stafford Loan, which 
is based on financial need. But, students can also get an "unsubsidized" 
Federal Stafford Loan regardless of need, that is, regardless of their or 
their family's income. It is possible for a student to have a Federal Stafford 
Loan partly based on financial need and partly not on need. 

Dependent undergraduate students can 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. 

For periods of undergraduate study that are less than an academic 
year, the amounts one can borrow will be less than those above. Talk to 
a financial aid administrator to find out how much may be borrowed. 



252 Finances 



Independent undergraduates can borrow up to: 

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

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

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

The amounts given are the maximums that can be borrowed; however, 
students can't borrow more than the cost of education at Southern 
College minus any other financial aid they receive. 

The total Stafford Loan debt one can have outstanding as a dependent 
undergraduate is $23,000; as an independent undergraduate it is $46,000. 

Work 

FEDERAL COLLEGE WORK-STUDY PROGRAM — Under the work- 
study program, the employer pays a small part of the student's wages, and 
the government pays the rest. Most work-study positions are on campus. 
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 
usually the current minimum wage. This may vary depending on the skill 
and experience needed for the job. 

OTHER GRANTS, LOANS, AND SCHOLARSHIPS 

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