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 Adventist University. The provisions of this catalog, however, are not to be regarded as an 
irrevocable contract between the University and the student. The University reserves the right to change 
any provision or requirement at anytime, without prior notice. 



Something to keep in mind — 

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

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

Every attempt has been made 

to prepare this catalog so 

everyone may understand it, 

but some of the information 

may still be confusing to you. 

Also, because changes may 

occur in your program 

requirements, you may 

encounter contradictions between this catalog and advice that you later 

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

clear. 

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

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

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

This Is Southern 
Adventist University 



Southern Adventist University is a co-educational institution operated by 
the Southern Union Conference of Seventh-day Adventists. 

Mission 

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

Vision 

In response to this mission, Southern Adventist University envisions itself 
as a leader in academic and professional excellence, responsive to the 
needs of its constituencies as it provides affordable education and a 
balanced lifestyle for students from diverse backgrounds. The institution will 
be recognized for its integration of faith and learning, scholarship and 
service, and leadership and servanthood. 

Core Values 

A Christ-centered Seventh-day Adventist campus 
Academic and professional excellence 
Hospitality and service 
Affordable education 
Balanced lifestyle 

Institutional Goals 

• Graduates who master the basic skills of critical reasoning, 
independent thinking, computation, communication, collaboration, and 
creativity needed to enter the workplace with confidence, to pursue 
lifelong learning, and to exercise leadership as contributing citizens 
who advance their families, communities, the church, and society. 

• Competent and diverse faculty and staff who model balanced ethical 
lives, integrate faith and learning, and celebrate and energize the 
student spirit as they respect and support the different ways students 
develop their minds, their persons, and their citizenship. 

• Campus learning communities that engage students with ideas that 
mark educated persons, global and multicultural perspectives, and 
advanced technology to develop both ethical principles and 
intellectual flexibility. 

• Active partnerships with alumni, church, community, business and 
industry, civic organizations, and government in order to analyze, 
project, and respond to changing needs to help ensure that graduates 
are prepared for a life of service. 

• Responsible stewardship of resources entrusted to the university 
through effective fiscal management to fulfill the mission, vision, and 
goals of the university. 



Educational Philosophy 

Rooted in its theological understanding of God and humanity, the 
educational philosophy of the Seventh-day Adventist church is summarized 
as follows: 

• God, the creator and Sustainer of the universe, is the Source of all 
knowledge. 

• Created in the image of God for the purpose of communion with Him, 
humanity has sinned and has separated from Him. 

• Through infinite love, God sent His Son to restore this relationship with 
us — a personal relationship that begins now and continues throughout 
eternity. 

Within the context of this theological understanding, education is viewed as 
an essential element of redemption, and must focus on developing the whole 
person. Through harmonious development of the physical, mental, spiritual, and 
social dimensions, the individual becomes better equipped to bring wholeness to 
a broken world. Within this philosophical framework, the Student Development 
Goals are as follows: 

• Spiritual: To create a safe, nurturing community of faith in which students 
may grow in a vibrant relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ, while 
integrating into their lives Christian beliefs and values as understood by 
the Seventh-day Adventist church. 

• Intellectual: To facilitate in students the mastery of cognitive skills of 
critical reasoning, independent thinking, reflective judgment, 
communication, and creativity as students confront the issues, ideas, and 
values of historical and contemporary civilization. 

• Occupational: To assist students in attaining knowledge-based 
competencies essential for productive citizenship, leadership, and service 
in an increasingly complex global society. 

• Social: To provide opportunities for students to develop socio-emotional 
maturity that will enable them to be effective, contributing members of 
families, groups, and communities in a pluralistic society. 

• Physical: To empower students to take responsibility for their own 
well-being through a health-promoting lifestyle. 

HISTORY 

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

In 1916, because of limited acreage available for further expansion of plant 
facilities, the school was moved to the Thatcher farm in Hamilton County, 
Tennessee. The name "Collegedale" was given to the anticipated community. At 
its new location, the school opened as Southern Junior College and continued as 
such until 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. 

In 1996 graduate studies were added to the curriculum and the name was 



8 This Is So u t h e r n Ad v e n t is t U 



changed again, this time to Southern Adventist University. 

SETTING 

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

LDMISSIONS 13 



their home school experience. 

ADMISSION OF TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students wishing to transfer to Southern Adventist University from another 
accredited college or university must follow the same application procedure 
as other students. Transfer credits may be applied toward the requirements 
for a degree when the student has satisfactorily completed a minimum of 
twelve semester hours in residence. Credit by examination taken at other 
colleges will be accepted according to Southern Adventist University 
standards (see "University Credit by Examination" in the Academic Policies 
section of the catalog on page 46). A maximum of 72 semester hours may 
be accepted from a college where the highest degree offered is the associate 
degree. Background deficiencies revealed by transcripts and entrance 
examinations will be given individual attention. 

Credit will be granted for courses taken at institutions which are not 
regionally accredited only after the student has completed at least 16 
semester hours at Southern 

Adventist University with a 2.00 or better average. Transfer courses that are 
comparable to Southern Adventist University courses may be recorded with 
an earned grade of "D" or better in general education and a "C" earned grade 
for a major. 



A student who has been dismissed from another institution because of 
poor scholarship or citizenship, or who is on probation from that institution, is 
not generally eligible for admission until he can qualify for readmission to the 
institution from which he has been dismissed. Transfer students must 
submit both their college and high school official transcripts to the 
Admissions Office before being admitted to registration. All transfer 
students must show evidence of ACT (American College Test) or SAT 
(Scholastic Aptitude Test) prior to registration at Southern Adventist 
University unless the transfer GPA is 3.00 or above. 

ADMISSION OF SPECIAL STUDENTS 

Mature individuals who do not meet the above University admission 
requirements 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. 

ADMISSION OF INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS 

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

The deadline for international student applications to be received by the 
Admissions Office is June 30 for the fall registration, and October 30 for the 
winter registration. 

Students from countries which administer the G.C.E. (General Certificate 



14 



LDMISSIONS 



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

Proficiency in English, both written and oral, must be proven before 
admission. This may be done by taking: (1) the Test of English as a Foreign 
Language (TOEFL) paper-pencil test; (2) the TOEFL Computer Based Test 
(CBT). Students whose TOEFL score is 550 (CBT 213) meet the official 
admission level, but students with scores between 450 and 549 (CBT 
133-212) may be admitted only on condition that they will enroll for special 
English language proficiency classes. These students must enroll as 
special advisees of the English Department which administers the language 
classes. Students whose TOEFL scores are below 450 (CBT 133) are not 
eligible for admission to the University. The ESL adviser will retest all 
students who arrive without TOEFL scores or who do not meet the above 
criteria. (Students who present a Michigan test score for admission to the 
ESL program will be placed accordingly. See criteria for placement.) 

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

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

All students desiring an I-20 must first submit a legible copy of their 
passport, showing legal name. 

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

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

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

1 . An admissions letter of acceptance from Southern Adventist University 

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

3. A valid passport 

4. A valid visa to enter the United States 

5. Sufficient funds for the first year at Southern Adventist University (in

EXTENSION CLASSES 

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

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

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

such are available. 

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

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

goals with a counselor. Career services are available to all currently 
enrolled students and graduates. Appointments can be made by visiting or

businesses regularly visit the University to interview seniors. Annual job 
opportunities and health career fairs provide students with opportunities to 
network with employers. 

CHAPLAIN'S OFFICE 

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

Southern Adventist University enjoys a reputation of having a strong 
commitment to mission service. There are opportunities for short-term 
mission projects as well as traditional Student Missionary positions or 
volunteer Task Force positions. The Student Missionary assignments from 
the world divisions are published by the General Conference Adventist 
Volunteer Center on their web site. Students interested in any mission or 
Task Force position may work through the Chaplain's Office for information 
and placement in mission positions. 

The campus chaplain serves as a pastor for the University campus. The 
chaplain is available for spiritual counseling, personal and relationship 
concerns, or any situation in which students desire personal and professional 



counseling. It is the desire of the Chaplain's Office to provide a safe, 
confidential setting for students to discuss personal issues. 

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

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

CONVOCATION 

Convocation exercises in the residence halls and for the entire student 
body serve educational and spiritual purposes. They also provide an element 
of unity which is one of the most desirable features of private education such 
as is found at Southern Adventist University. The spiritual emphasis weeks 
and the weekend church services assist in the spiritual growth of the 
students. Students are required to attend these services regularly. Failure to 
do so will jeopardize the student's current status and readmission privileges. 

COUNSELING AND TESTING SERVICE 

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

rooms are available for meetings of various student or faculty organizations.

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

Students with disabilities should contact the Center of Learning Success 
(CLS) located on the second floor of the McKee Library (ph. 423-238-2574 or 
423-238-2838). Southern Adventist University is in compliance with Section 
504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973) and is dedicated to the elimination of 
architectural and prejudicial barriers which prevent any qualified person from 
attending. SAU has established the CLS to assist in obtaining reasonable 
accommodations. However, the University does not assume responsibility 



20 



JTUDENTLIFE AND SERVICES 



for accommodations to students who have not voluntarily, and confidentially, 
identified themselves as having qualifying disabilities or to those who have 
not provided the CLS with appropriate documentation of their disabilities. 
For students who have dissatisfaction with the University's 
recommendations, SAU has a formal grievance process which it will conduct 
in a fair and unbiased manner. The grievance process is initiated by 
contacting the Director of Counseling and Testing at 423-238-2783 in the 
Student Center. Detailed copies of this process are available at the CLS 
and the Counseling and Testing Center. 

DISCIPLINE 

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

HEALTH SERVICE 

The Health Service is directed by a nurse practitioner under the 
supervision of a physician and the vice president for Student Services. The 
nurse practitioner works during the day and two live-in registered nurses take 
turns being on-call during the evenings, nights, and weekends for 
emergencies. The physician will see students at Health Service at 
pre-arranged times. To maximize healthcare for all students it is the normal 
procedure for the nurse to see students at Health Service. In a clear 
emergency the nurse on duty will go onsite. 

Health Service is available to all students and student dependents ages 12 
and above who are on school insurance. 

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

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

University policy requires all students to have adequate accident and 
health insurance covering both inpatient and outpatient services. The same 
coverage is encouraged for all spouses and dependents. This requirement 
can be met at registration or before, by (a) enrolling in the student injury and 
sickness insurance plan, or (b) signing a waiver form indicating adequate 
coverage by another policy or health care plan. All students living in a 
residence hall or other student housing must purchase the insurance unless 
waiving the coverage. Those taking less than six hours may choose to 
purchase the plan if desired. A student taking six hours or more who has 
not signed a waiver form will be automatically enrolled in the plan. A policy 
brochure describing benefits, terms, and limits is available from the Risk 
Management department. 

ORIENTATION PROGRAM 



jtudentLife and Services 21 



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

Orientation for new students is held prior to registration for the fall term. It 
includes examinations and instruction helpful in course planning. The student 
is introduced to 



the facilities, purposes, and functions of the University. Social occasions are 
also provided when students may meet faculty members and fellow students. 
All new freshman and transferring students are required to attend the 
orientation program. 

PHOTO RELEASE 

By registering at Southern Adventist University, students authorize the use 
and reproduction by the University, or anyone authorized by the University, 
of any pictorial images (including conventional, video, and digital 
photography) taken of them while enrolled at Southern Adventist University, 
without compensation. All negatives, positives, and prints shall constitute 
Southern Adventist University property, solely and completely. 

RESIDENCE HALL LIVING 

Living in a university residence hall with its daily "give and take" prepares 
the student to meet life with equanimity, teaches respect for the rights and 
opinions of others, and offers first-hand experience in adjusting to a social 
group. Four residence halls that serve the needs of our students are: Talge 
Hall, Thatcher Hall, Thatcher South, and Southern Village. 

To assure students this beneficial experience, the University requires 
those students who take more than three semester hours of class work and 
who are unmarried, under 23 years of age, and not living with their parents or 
other approved relatives in the vicinity, to reside in one of the residence halls. 
Those over the age 23 may be asked to find alternate housing either in 
Student Family Housing or off-campus. 

SOCIAL ACTIVITIES AND ORGANIZATIONS 

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

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

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

In harmony with the objectives of the University, high standards of 
behavior are maintained to encourage the development of genuine Christian 
character. Mature Christian students of sound spiritual and social integrity 



22 Student Life and Services 



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

A student who is out of harmony with the social policies of the University, 
who is uncooperative, and whose attitude gives evidence of an unresponsive 
nature may be advised to withdraw without specific charge. 

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

STUDENT ASSOCIATION 

Every undergraduate student at Southern Adventist University who is 
taking eight or more semester hours of class work is a member of the 
Student Association with voting privileges in the election of officers. The 
association affords opportunities for leadership development and for 
cooperation in achieving the objectives of Southern Adventist University. The 
association assists the University administration and faculty in the 
implementation of policies and assumes responsibility in giving direction to 
campus activities entrusted to it. The association's activities are 
coordinated and communicated through the Student Senate and cabinet and 
their several committees. The activities and responsibilities of the officers 
and the detailed organization of the Student Association are outlined in the 
Student Association Constitution and Bylaws. 

STUDENT EMPLOYMENT SERVICE 

Southern Adventist University encourages every student to balance work 
and study. If a student wants to work, is physically and emotionally able to 
work, and has arranged his/her class schedule to accommodate a 
reasonable work schedule, he/she should be able to obtain employment on 
campus. Students seeking employment should contact the Human 
Resources/Student Employment Office. 

STUDENT PUBLICATIONS AND PRODUCTIONS 

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

Student media are the voices of both students and faculty, representing 
the visual and creative arts, both in print and non-print formats. The student 
media provides a marketplace of ideas in a university environment. Student 
media serve not only the current residents of the campus, but also document 
the culture and history of the institution. 



student Life and Services 23 



Approved student-produced media on campus are the Festival Studios 
(multimedia year in review), Joker (pictorial directory), Numerique (student 
phone directory), Southern Accent (student newspaper), Southern Memories

Adventist University is the legal publisher of all of the approved 
student-produced media.

GENERAL EDUCATION 

General education is an important part of the student's experience at 
Southern Adventist University. The general education structure is designed 
to provide the student opportunity to develop those values and competencies 
that mark an educated person and prepare him or her for leadership in 
today's complex society. While recognizing the validity of many different 
general education programs, the faculty of SAU 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 selected courses to comply with General Education 
requirements. A comprehensive general education test is required of all 
baccalaureate seniors. 

Writing Across the Curriculum: The Writing Across the Curriculum 

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

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

SOUTHERN SCHOLARS (Honors Program): 

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

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

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

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



36 



VCADEMICrOLICIES 



honors committee. 

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

After completing one year in the honors program, Southern Scholars may 
receive a waiver for the cost of auditing one class each semester that they 
remain in the program. Once having earned junior status and having finished one 
year in the program, Southern Scholars will receive a tuition refund equivalent to 
one three-hour class for four semesters if they are enrolled full-time. The "per 
hour" rate for a 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 and 452. Refer to the scholarship on page 275.

discipline. The project is expected to be of sufficiently high quality to 
warrant a grade of A and to justify public presentation. The completed 
project submitted in duplicate must be approved by the Honors 
Committee in consultation with the student's supervising professor three 
weeks prior to graduation. The 2-3 hours of credit for this project is done 
as directed study or in a research class.

PREPROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

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



Academic Policies 41 



Anesthesia Optometry 

Dentistry Osteopathic Medicine 

Law Pharmacy 

Medicine Veterinary Medicine 

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

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

REGISTRATION 

Students are expected to register during the scheduled registration periods 

designated in the school calendar. Registration is complete only after they 
have finished all procedures and returned registration forms to the Records 
and Advisement Office. New students are required to participate in the 
orientation activities. 

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

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

To make program changes, students must obtain the appropriate change 
of registration voucher at the Records and Advisement Office, obtain the 
necessary signatures indicating approval of the change, and return the form 
to the Records and Advisement Office. Course changes and complete 
withdrawals from the school become effective on the date the voucher is filed 
at the Records and Advisement 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. 

When a student drops a class during the first week of the semester, the 

class is deleted off the student's record. A grade of "W" is issued when a 
student drops the class on the second week of the semester. A student 
may withdraw from a class up to two weeks after midterm and receive a 
grade of "W" automatically. A student withdrawing from a class after that date 
and up to two weeks before the last day of classes will be assigned a grade 
of "W" or "WF" by the teacher. The grade for any withdrawal during the final 
two weeks of the semester will automatically be "F." 
Auditing Courses. With the approval of the department/school, students 



42 Academic Policies 



may register on an audit basis in courses for which they are qualified. 

Auditors are to be admitted to classes of limited enrollment only if there are 

places after all students who wish to enroll for credit have been 

accommodated. Class attendance is expected but examinations and reports 

may be omitted. With the approval of the instructor, a student may change a 

course registration from audit to credit or from credit to audit only during the 

first week of instruction. No credit is given for courses audited, and the 

cost is one-half of the regular tuition charge. Audit tuition charge is in 

addition to a flat rate charge. 

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

COURSE LOAD 

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

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

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

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

Course Load Maximum Work Load 

1 6 hours 16 hours 

14 hours 20 hours 

12 hours 26 hours 

10 hours 32 hours 

8 hours 38 hours 

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 



ICADEMICrOLICIES 



43 



Southern Adventist University is committed to assist every student in the 
area of academic advisement. Full-time students are assigned an academic 
adviser from their major field and are required to consult with their advisers 
before registering for classes. 

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

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

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

GRADING SYSTEM 

Southern Adventist University does not have an institutional grading policy. 

Instructors use a variety of methods to evaluate students' performance, but 
the grades they issue are defined as follows: 

A Superior; the student demonstrates exceptional capability in handling 

course material 
B Above average; the student's demonstrated capability in handling course 

material exceeds the expectation of the teacher 
C Average; the student demonstrates a satisfactory grasp of course 

material which the instructor intends students to learn in the class 
D Below average; the student's demonstrated ability to deal with the 

course material is less than the teacher intends students to learn 
F Failing; the student does not demonstrate sufficient capability with the 

course material to merit a passing grade 
W Withdrew from the class; is not calculated in the GPA 
WF Withdrew Failing; calculated as an "F" in the GPA 
AUAudit; no credit 

I Incomplete; is not calculated in the GPA 
IP In Progress; a temporary passing grade for interrupted course work still 

in progress; is not calculated in the GPA 
P Pass; is not calculated in the GPA 
NR Not Reported; the teacher did not issue a grade; is not calculated in the 

GPA 

The Pass/Fail option is available only in Physical Education activity 
classes (PEAC). Students enrolling in these classes must make a 
decision either to receive a grade of Pass/Fail or a conventional grade 



44 Academic Policies 



before the final grades are submitted. The decision will be final. 

Nursing Practicum, NRSG 191, is also a Pass/Fail class. 

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 and Advisement Office the proper form and file the 
application with the teacher to receive an incomplete. There is a charge of 
$20 for processing grades of incomplete. Any incomplete which is not 
removed by the end of the following term (Fall, Winter) will automatically 
become an "F." A teacher may assign a temporary "IP" (in progress) when 
an unavoidable problem prevents the issuance of a grade. 

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

Mid-semester and semester grade reports are issued to the student and 

parents of students termed "dependent" for income tax purposes. Only 

semester grades are recorded on the student's permanent record. The 

following system of grading and grade point values is used: 

A4.00 grade points per hour C2.00 grade points per hour 

A- 3.70 grade points per hour C- 1.70 grade points per hour 

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

B3.00 grade points per hour D1 .00 grade points per hour 

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

C+ 2.30 grade points per hour F0.00 grade points per hour 

WF 0.00 grade points per hour 
The grade point average is calculated by dividing the total number of 
grade points earned by the credit hours attempted. 

OUTCOMES ASSESSMENT 

In an ongoing attempt to improve its educational quality, the University 
administers a comprehensive assessment program. This involves periodic 
measurement of student academic achievement, student satisfaction, and 
personal, professional, and career development. Although participation in 
these assessment activities is expected of all students, not every student will 
be selected for every assessment; but during the course of enrollment, 
students are likely to be involved in at least one assessment activity. 

STUDENT RECORDS 

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

Parents of students termed "dependent" for income tax purposes are 
entitled to access to the student's educational records. The law also provides 
for the release of information to university personnel who demonstrate a 
legitimate educational interest, other institutions engaged in research 



Academic Policies 45 



(provided information is not revealed to any other parties), and certain 
federal and state government officials. 

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

A more thorough explanation of records may be obtained from the 
Records and Advisement Office. The Director of Records and Advisement 
will further explain and clarify the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act 
to students, parents, or interested parties upon request. 

ACADEMIC HONESTY 

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

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

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

Student Responsibilities: 

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

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

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

Schools/Departmental Policies: 

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

Procedures for Handling Academic Dishonesty: 

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

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

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

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

3. Two incidents of academic dishonesty make a student eligible to be 
dismissed from the University. However, the student may 
then appeal the action through the established appeal procedures spelled 



46 



VCADEMICrOLICIES 



out in the "Grievance Procedure" section of this catalog. 

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

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

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

2. Entering freshmen whose high school GPA is below 2.00 or if their 
composite ACT score is less than 18. 

3. Transfer students whose GPA is less than 2.00. 

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

5. Students on Academic Probation may enroll in a maximum of 12 
hours. 

Students on academic probation are allowed to remain in school but must 
demonstrate progressive improvement to meet graduation requirements as 
well as comply with the Academic Support Group Program. 

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

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

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

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

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

Cumulative Credit Hours Attempted Cumulative Grade Point 

Average 



Academic Policies 47 



0-23 1.50 or above 

24-54 1.75 or above 

55 or above 2.00 or above 

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

Students receiving financial aid must also meet an academic progress 
policy set by the federal government. For further explanation see page 283, 
"Academic Progress Requirements." 



RIGHT OF PETITION 

Students who believe there is a valid reason for requesting variance from 
or exception to an academic policy stated in the catalog may make a petition 
to the Director of Records and Advisement for consideration of their case 
after obtaining the advice and signature of the department chair or school 
dean of their major. The petition must contain a statement of the request and 
supporting reasons. Highly unusual requests will be referred to the Vice 
President for Academic Administration. Students will be notified in writing 
by the Director of Records and Advisement of the action on petitions. Petition 
forms are available from the Records and Advisement Office. 

ACADEMIC GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE 

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

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

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

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

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

ABSENCES 

Class. Attendance at class and laboratory appointments is expected. 
Teachers prepare an absence policy for each class, which includes an 
explanation of penalties, if any, for absences, and the procedure for making 



48 



VCADEMICrOLICIES 



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 

consecutively in one day or four in one day, the last examination of the day 
will normally be the one rescheduled. Examinations rescheduled for any 
reason other than those listed above, may require a fee of $65 per 
examination. All rescheduling requests will be made on a form available at 
the office of the Vice President for Academic Administration. 

Convocation. Convocations are held each Thursday at 11:00 a.m. During 
weeks of prayer, convocations are held on Monday through Friday as well. 
Occasionally, convocation will be held in the evening or may begin at 10:30 
a.m. on Thursday. All students are required to attend 14 convocations each 
semester. Failure to meet this convocation requirement may result in 
suspension of registration. Exceptions to the convocation attendance 
requirement are made by the Office of Student Services only for legitimate 
direct work conflicts with scheduled convocations. Any excuses for absences 
from convocation must be approved by the Vice President for Student 
Services. 

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

LIMITATIONS ON CLASS ATTENDANCE 

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

Teachers and the institution reserve the right to remove legitimate 
students from classes if their behavior threatens the purposes of the class by 



Academic Policies 49 



exceeding the bounds of normal academic freedom. 

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

WAIVER EXAMINATIONS 

Upon the approval of the department chair or school dean and the Vice 
President for Academic Administration, students may obtain a waiver of 
curricular requirements by successfully completing a comprehensive 
examination — written, oral, manipulative, or otherwise, as determined by the 
department/school involved. A fee of $50 per examination is charged. 

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE 

Southern Adventist University offers a program in English as a Second 
Language for Intermediate and Advanced level students whose English 
language skills are below the official admission level of the TOEFL score of 
550 (CBT 213). For details, see the Admissions and English Department 
sections of the catalog. 

NONTRADITIONAL COLLEGE CREDIT 

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

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



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

University Credit by Examination. The University recognizes three types 
of examinations for credit: challenge examinations prepared by a 
department/school which must be passed at "B" level or above, approved 
College Level Examination Program (CLEP) subject examinations which 
must be passed at the score of 50 or higher, and the Advanced Placement 
Examinations which must be passed with a score of three or better. 

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



50 



VCADEMICrOLICIES 



taken if the student has audited the class. 

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

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

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

Additional information concerning challenge examinations may be 

obtained from the Records and Advisement Office or the Counseling and 
Testing Center. 

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

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

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

Correspondence work may not apply on the upper division requirements 
of the major or minor. A minimum grade of "B" must be earned to apply on 
the lower division requirements for a major. A course in which the student 
earned a grade of "D" or "F" while in residence may not be repeated by 
correspondence. No correspondence credit will be entered on the student's 
record until s/he has earned a minimum of twelve hours in residence with an 
average of at least "C." Official transcripts must be in the Records and 
Advisement Office before a diploma will be ordered. The graduation date will 
be the last day of the month after the official transcript is received. 

Practicum and Internships. Suggested departmental/school guidelines 
for practicum and internships. 

Practicum : 

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

b. The process of learning a job on a part-time basis. 

c. The work may be done at various job sites. 

Internships : 

a. A minimum of 1 00 clock hours per one credit hour. 

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

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

TRANSIENT STUDENT 

A Southern Adventist University student acquires transient student status 



Academic Policies 51 



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

To receive transient status, a student must: 

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

Adventist University and 

2. be enrolled simultaneously at Southern Adventist University for a 

minimum of three hours of class credit. (This condition does not 

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

EXTENSION CLASSES 

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

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

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

Southern Adventist University will bill each academy for its extension classes 
at the rate of $50 per credit hour. For example: The cost for ENGL 101, three 
credit hours, would be $150 ($50 x 3). 

CONTINUING EDUCATION 

Southern Adventist University makes continuing education credit available 

through the Records and Advisement Office. Sponsors of organizations 
wishing to offer Southern Adventist University continuing education 
certificates must complete the following steps: 



1 . Secure approval of the program by 

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

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

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

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

TRANSCRIPTS 

Students may obtain transcripts of their academic record upon written 
request made by fax or letter to the Office of Records and Advisement. This 
request must include a hand-written signature as electronic generated 



52 Academic Policies 



signatures are unacceptable. Requests made by telephone, E-mail, or third 
party cannot be honored. Official transcripts given directly to a student will 
be enclosed in a sealed envelope with the registrar's signature across the 
back. Transcripts will be issued for those students whose accounts are paid 
in full and who are current in re-payment of student loans. 

Transcripts are free unless special services are required. Same-day 
service and/or individual requests requiring an excess of more than five 
transcripts will be charged $8. A secure method of payment may be used 
such as cash, credit card, cashiers check, or money order. (A personal 
check will not be accepted.) If the student requires that the transcript be 
sent by overnight service, an additional $15 charge will be incurred. 
Requests for overnight service may be made up to 3:30 p.m. upon 
confirmation of payment. 

A student may receive an unofficial transcript for evaluative purposes by 
applying in person or by fax with the Records and Advisement Office. For 
further clarification regarding transcripts, diplomas, and test scores see page 
296. 

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.

COURSE NUMBERS 

Each course number consists of three figures as follows: 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

COGNATE COURSES 

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

The Allied Health Professions are rapidly growing areas of specialization within the 
health care industry. Job openings are plentiful and pay scales are comparable to other 
professionals in health care. The department offers a B.S. degree in Clinical Laboratory 
Science (Medical Technology) and A.S. degrees in a number of Allied Health fields (listed 
on pages 54-55). 

MISSION STATEMENT 

The Allied Health branch of the Biology /Allied Health Department exists 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, as well as to promote 
these professions as meaningful career options providing opportunities for Christian 
service. 

ASSESSMENT 

The programs in this department vary extensively depending on the particular health 
career and the requirements of the specific schools which offer the clinical programs. 
Southern Adventist University continually monitors the requirements of these clinical 
programs and modifies its preprofessional curricula to meet the changes when they are 
made. Continual assessment is made essentially by the advisers in the department who 
measure their effectiveness by their success in structuring programs to meet individual 
student needs and to meet requirements of the professional school where the student 
will transfer. The entrance rate of students into professional programs is also used to 
assess adequacy of class offerings and program requirements. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN CLINICAL LABORATORY SCIENCE 
(Medical Technology) 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

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

The curriculum prescribed by Southern Adventist University is designed to meet the 



Health 57 



lllied Health 



requirements of the University and of CAHEA. Hospitals with clinical programs 

may have additional requirements. Students should consult the brochures or advisers of 

the specific hospitals for those requirements. 

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

During the fall semester of the third year, students must apply for admission to an 
approved clinical program. Acceptance of the individual student to the senior year 
program is determined by the institution offering the clinical program. To be eligible for 
admission, a student must complete all of the University course requirements prior to 
beginning the clinical year. The overall grade point average must be acceptable to the 
University for graduation. Most clinical programs do not accept students with less than 
a 2.75 cumulative average on a 4.00 system. Although clinical acceptances are granted 
during the junior year, they are conditional, pending satisfactory completion of the 
stated admission criteria. 

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

ASSOCIATE OF SCIENCE IN ALLIED HEALTH 

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

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

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

PRI-DINTAL HYGIfNI 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as well as 
Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can be 
modified to meet the requirements of other schools. For a complete description of 
Southern's general education requirements, refer to pages 27-32.

PRE-NUTRITION AND DIETETICS 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

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

PRE-OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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. 

The program below meets admission requirements for Loma Linda University, as well as 
Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can be 
modified to meet the requirements of other schools. For a complete description of 
Southern's general education requirements, refer to pages 27-32.

PRE-PHYSICIAN ASSISTANT 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

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

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

Additional information on physician assistant programs can be obtained from the 



66 Allied Health 



University's pre-physician assistant advisor or by contacting the schools that offer the 
clinical programs. 



PRE-RESPflRATORY THERAPY 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

Respiratory therapists apply scientific knowledge and theory to practical clinical problems 
of respiratory care. The respiratory therapist is qualified to assume primary responsibility 
for all respiratory care modalities, including the supervision of respiratory therapy 
technician functions. The respiratory therapist may be required to exercise considerable 
independent clinical judgement, under the supervision of a physician, in the respiratory care 
of patients. Respiratory therapy personnel are employed in hospitals, nursing care 
facilities, clinics, physicians' offices, companies providing emergency oxygen services, and 
municipal organizations. 

Southern Adventist University offers a two-year associate degree that provides the 

prerequisite courses for entrance into the final two years of the bachelors degree program at 

Loma Linda University. The program can be modified to meet requirements of other schools. 

For a complete description of Southern's general education requirements, refer to pages 

27-32.

PRE-SPEECH-LANGUAGE PATHOLOGY & AUDIOLOGY 
Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

Speech-language pathologists identify, assess, and treat persons with speech and 
language disorders while audiologists assess and treat hearing impaired individuals. 
Because both occupations are concerned with communication, individuals competent in one 
area must be familiar with the other. The duties of speech-language pathologists and 
audiologists vary. Most, however, provide direct clinical services to individuals with 



lllied Health 67 



communication disorders. In speech, language, and hearing clinics they may independently 
develop and implement a treatment program. In private medical centers and other facilities, 
they may be part of a team that develops and executes a treatment plan. In schools they may 
help administrators develop individual or group programs, counsel parents on prevention of 
hearing disorders, and assist teachers with classroom activities. 

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

Southern Adventist University's requirements for an A.S. degree. This program can be modified to

BIOLOGY 

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

MISSION STATEMENT 

The Biology Department exists as an integral part of Southern Adventist University 
with its mission to provide a quality Seventh-day Adventist Christian undergraduate 
education, emphasizing the balanced development of the spiritual, intellectual, physical, 
and social dimensions of men and women. Within the framework of a Christian 
understanding of the origin and workings of biological systems, the department seeks to 
provide opportunities for its academic and local communities to understand the value, 
process and limitations of scientific inquiry as well as to develop an awareness and 
understanding of the biological world and our responsibility to it. Its curricula are 
designed to provide students with high quality preparation for careers in the biological 
and biomedical professions. 

THE BIOLOGY MAJOR 

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

The Biology Department makes available a number of experiences, both curricular 
and extracurricular, to enrich its students' academic programs. The department offers 
courses which include field experiences in Indonesia, Canada, Kenya, Belize, Smoky 
Mountains, and the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge. The Tennessee Aquarium in 
nearby Chattanooga provides additional learning resources. The department is also 
affiliated with Walla Walla College's Rosario Beach Biological Field Station (see page 
23). 

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 267).

IOLOGY 



ASSESSMENT 

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

Chemistry 



Chair: Rhonda Scott-Ennis 

Faculty: Brent Hamstra, Bruce Schilling 

Chemistry is the study of substances in our world, such as the food we 
eat, the clothes we wear, the plastic containers that are used in so many 
ways, the drugs that are an integral part of medicine, to name a few. 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. There are also 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 in chemistry, 
professional applications of chemistry, or post-secondary education. The 
B.S. degree in Chemistry, Biochemistry emphasis, is recommended for 
students preparing for careers in medicine or dentistry as well as graduate 
study, research or teaching in biochemistry, molecular biology, or 
biotechnology. The B.A. degree is the preferred degree for high-school 
teaching, pre-paramedical fields, and some of the business applications. 

MISSION STATEMENT 

Within a Christian environment of learning, the Chemistry Department 
seeks to provide undergraduate students with the knowledge and skills 
necessary for distinguished professional performance in chemistry or other 
fields that require a strong background in chemistry. 

ASSESSMENT 

To aid the chemistry department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, 
nationally standardized tests prepared by the American Chemical Society are 
administered at the end of each course for which an appropriate test is 
available. Students majoring in chemistry are expected to achieve a 
minimum score of 40 th percentile on these exams and achieve a grade of C 
or above in the core chemistry courses. Students who score below the 40 th 
percentile and passed the corresponding course will be given self-paced 
instructional materials to strengthen areas of identified weakness. 

All chemistry majors are required to take COMM 135 as part of their 
general education program.

MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of Southern Adventist University's School of Computing is to 
provide an exemplary Christian learning environment which enables 
students to become Christian computing professionals, who, in addition to 
being competent in their chosen profession, realize their responsibility to 
God, church, family, employer, colleagues, and society. 

MAJORS IN COMPUTING 

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

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

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



This curriculum follows the guideline for computer science degrees 
developed by the ACM and IEEE, Curriculum 2001 . 

The B.A. degree in computer science allows students to combine a 
computing degree 

with a minor or with a major in another academic area offering a 
B.A., for instance 

English, history, or music. This combination is useful in occupations such 
as teaching high school. 

The B.S. in computer information systems combines classes in computing 
and systems management with classes in accounting, economics, and 
business administration. With a few years experience graduates will be 
equipped to manage a data processing department in a hospital, business, 
or industry. This program follows the curriculum developed by ACM, AIS, 
and AITP, IS '97. 

The B.S. in computer systems administration is designed to prepare 
graduates who will administer the complex computer systems and networks 
now common in the business world. It requires a minimum of programming, 
mathematics, and business courses, while concentrating on the technical 
issues needed to administer and support modern network computing 
systems and software. 

ADMISSIONS 

Admission to the School of Computing is required before graduation with 
a major offered by the School of Computing. Declaration as a major is not 
the equivalent of acceptance to the School of Computing. Minimum 
requirements for admission to the School of Computing are: 

1 . Acceptance to Southern Adventist University. 

2. Complete general education: ENGL 101 and 102. 

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

4. Earned overall GPA of 2.25 or better. 

Students pursuing a major offered by the School of Computing should 
apply for admission at the end of the freshman year. Transfer students will 
be considered for admission after completing 6 hours of major courses in 
residence. 

SCHOOL OF COMPUTING PROBATION 

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

SOFTWARE TECHNOLOGY CENTER 

The Software Technology Center, a department of the School of 



102 



JCHOOL OF COMPUTING 



Computing, allows students and faculty to work together in providing 
commercial Web services. These services include web page design, site 
design, web hosting, site effectiveness evaluation, site maintenance and the 
construction of custom web software applications. Students from a variety 
of majors utilize their skills in visual design, computer technology, and sales 
at the Software Technology Center. Thus students are given the 
opportunity to utilize principles and theories learned in the classroom in a 
commercial environment as part of their student employment. 

In addition, the Software Technology Center coordinates the internship 
program of the School of Computing. This program encourages employers 
to utilize the skills of our students in exciting and productive ways and 
encourages students to take advantage of the opportunities these employers 
provide. Currently the core of this effort is an innovative program called 
Meet the Firms, which includes job fair events and Preparing to Meet the 
Firms, a course that preps students for finding jobs. Most of the internships 
are paid summer internships for which the student may also register to 
receive academic credit.

PRAXIS II PASS RATE 

The completers of the Teacher Education Program at Southern have 
achieved a 98% pass rate in the Praxis II licensure exams for 2001-02, 
compared to 92% state-wide. 

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

The teacher education and psychology programs in the unit are founded 
upon the basic assumption that there is a body of information, research, and 
practice that make up the knowledge base for the teaching profession and 
that acquisition of this knowledge is a significant part of teachers' and 
psychologists' preparation. 

STATEMENT OF MISSION 

The mission of the School of Education and Psychology at Southern 
Adventist University is to prepare professional educators and psychologists 
at both undergraduate and graduate levels who can function effectively in a 
culturally pluralistic society and who are dedicated to assisting individuals in 
reaching their maximum potential in service to God and humanity. 

The School of Education and Psychology is approved by the Tennessee 
State Board of Education for the preparation of secondary and elementary 
teachers accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher 
Education (NCATE) and by the Accrediting Association of Seventh-day 
Adventists Schools, Colleges and Universities, Inc.

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

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

Each student accepted at Southern Adventist University who indicated 
that teaching is his/her professional objective is assigned an educational 
program adviser by the advisement coordinator in the Records Office. The 



School of Education and Psychology 115 



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. 

At the time of a student's Initial Admission to the Teacher 
Education Program, the current and subsequent catalogs will 
determine the requirements for completion of the program and 
graduation. Deviations to this policy will be valid only if mandated 
by the North American Division and/or the State of Tennessee 
Department of Education. 

NOTE: Courses with grades lower than "C in the major studies 
or professional education must be repeated. 

The student must apply for Initial Admission to the Teacher Education 
Program (usually by the end of the sophomore year) after completing all 
requirements as outlined below. Initial admission is required before the 
student can enroll in upper division education courses. The following 
criteria are required for each applicant. 

1 . Be in residence at the University 

2. Show evidence of physical, mental, spiritual and moral fitness 

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

Secondary Education, and ENGL 101 and 102 with a grade of C 
or higher 

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

6. Have submitted a formal application which includes a short 
autobiography in the student's own handwriting containing 
anecdotal information on why s/he decided to pursue a career in 
teaching 

7. Have obtained recommendations from the Vice President of 
Student Services and the student's academic adviser as part of 
the application process 

8 . Have presented a beginning 
professional portfolio to the Teacher 
Education Faculty

interview with the Teacher Education 
Faculty 

9. Have signed a felony statement as part 
of the interview process

116 



JCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 



School of Education and Psychology Faculty and recommended 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. 

Candidacy and Retention in Teacher Education 

After the applicant has been admitted to the Teacher Education 
Program, his/her progress will be reviewed by the Candidacy Committee, 
consisting of the adviser, a departmental/school representative, and one 
elementary or secondary teacher. As a teacher candidate, the applicant 
will be given an opportunity to interact with the Candidacy Committee in 
a non-threatening atmosphere. During the interview the candidate can 
strengthen his/her commitment to teaching or express his/her concerns 
and questions about the teaching profession. 

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

Authorization to do Student Teaching 

After acceptance into the Teacher Education Program and before 
the first semester of the senior year, the teacher candidate must file a 
formal application with the faculty of the School of Education and 
Psychology for authorization to do student teaching. Application forms 
may be obtained from the School secretary in Summerour Hall. A late 
application may delay the student teaching experience. Student 
teaching is regarded as the culminating experience of the Teacher 
Education Program. 

NOTE: Prior to the professional semester, the student must 
take and pass the PRAXIS II licensure exam — both the 
appropriate section of the Principles of Learning and Teaching, 
and the particular specialty test(s) for the licensure area(s). 

The following criteria are required for each applicant: 

1 . Completion of all professional education courses 

2. Cumulative GPA of 2.75 
Major Studies GPA of 2.75 
Professional Education GPA of 2.75 

3. No grade lower than a C in the major studies and the 
professional education courses will be acceptable

University and the Teacher Education Council 

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

7. Completion and passing of PRAXIS II examinations 

8. Proof of current certification in First Aid/CPR 

9. Completion of a student teaching interview

School of Education and Psychology 117 



13 . Approval of the Teacher Education 
Council 

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

ADVISEMENT 

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

APPEAL PROCEDURES 

Criteria and standards for admission to teacher education are explicit, but 
allow for second chance attempts. Courses may be repeated to raise GPA or 
students may follow the Grievance Procedures found under Academic 
Policies (page 44). Also, students who do not meet all the criteria required to 
do Student Teaching may appeal to the Teacher Education Council. Any 
applicant who determines to follow this alternative policy must seek counsel 
from the Dean of the School of Education and Psychology. 

TEACHER LICENSURE 

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

WHO CAN OBTAIN CERTIFICATION? 

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

A. Successful completion of student teaching assignments 

B. Satisfactory completion of all credential requirements 

C. Recommendation of major departments/schools 

D. Passing scores on the following PRAXIS II Examinations: 

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

Certification is not automatic. The eligible candidate must make the 
necessary application to the Southern Union Conference, and to any other 
appropriate union conference for denominational certification; and to the 
State of Tennessee and to any other specific state department of education 
where the candidate expects to teach. Information regarding certification is 
available through the Southern Adventist University certification officer. Since 
teacher certification regulations are always in the process of change, 
graduating teacher education candidates are urged to make their 
applications for certification immediately. If the candidate does not make 



118 



JCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 



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. Initial 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

of the credit required for the certificate provided that no more than 
four semester hours in education are applied on the professional 
education requirement. If personal circumstances demand a 
correspondence course, a petition must be filed with the School of 
Education and Psychology and its approval obtained before 
registering for the course. The course must be completed and the 
grade filed in the Records and Advisement Office before student 
teaching is begun. 

3. For SDA Certification a major is not always required for additional 



120

endorsements; however, a minor may be acceptable in some 
disciplines as a second field endorsement area. 
Students should contact the School of Education and Psychology 
for information on specific requirements in the area(s) of 
endorsement sought. 

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

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

126 



JCHOOL OF EDUCATION AND PSYCHOLOGY 



assessment consists of two phases. 

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

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

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

As stated earlier in the Admission Procedures section, the teacher 
education student must obtain passing scores on the Praxis II exams before 
s/he can receive a grade in student teaching. 

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

In addition to the above, education students obtaining a psychology 
degree must fulfill the assessment procedures listed on page 1 08.

Engineering Studies 



Engineering Studies Committee: 

Henry Kuhlman (Chair), Ken Caviness, John Durichek 

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

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

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

Chair: Wilma McClarty 

Faculty: Rachel Byrd, Joan dos Santos, Jan Haluska, Debbie Higgens, 

Helen Pyke (Composition Coordinator), Marcus Sheffield 
Adjunct Faculty: Jodi Ruf, Luis Velez 

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

Students majoring or minoring in English must meet the specific 
requirements of the English Department (below) and the General Education 
program (pages 27-32). For the English major, intermediate foreign language 
is required. College Composition does not count toward an English major or 
minor, but students majoring or minoring in English must earn a grade of C 
or higher in College Composition. The nine upper division literature classes 
are all W courses and hence require word processing skills. 

MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of the Department of English is to provide general education 
students with basic communication and literary analysis skills in a Christian 
context, to offer support services for students needing help with their writing, 
and to prepare English majors for graduate school and/or the job market. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

ENGLISH AS A SECOND LANGUAGE PROGRAM (ESL) 

Students whose native language is not English and whose TOEFL 
(paper-pencil test) scores are between 450-549, or whose TOEFL Computer 
Based Test (CBT) scores are between 133-212, or whose English ACT score 
is below 17 will be required to take special English classes offered by the 
English Department. These students are ineligible for Basic Writing or 
College Composition until they have completed these special English 
classes. Students with TOEFL scores below 450 (CBT 133) have not met

History 



Chair: Benjamin McArthur 

Faculty: Lisa Clark Diller, Mark Peach, Dennis Pettibone 

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

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

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

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

3. Embodiment of academic balance and continuity. 

4. Completion of senior year assessment. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

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

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

History 149 



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 267. 



Minor — Political Science (18 Hours) 

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

The Political Science minor is an 18-hour program, 9 or 12 hours of which 

(depending on whether a summer or semester-long internship was taken) 
would consist of the internship credit. The balance of the minor would 
require: 

1. PLSC 254 American Government 

2. 3 to 6 hours of other PLSC courses 

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

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

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

The student must apply for Initial Admission to the Teacher Education 
Program (usually by the end of the sophomore year) after completing all 
requirements as outlined under ADMISSION PROCEDURES in the School 
of Education and Psychology section of the catalog. Initial admission is 
required before the student can enroll in upper division education courses. 

The student must also complete an application and all other requirements 



150 H 



ISTORY 



for Admission to Student Teaching. Prior to the professional semester, the 

student must take and pass the PRAXIS II licensure exam — both the 

appropriate section of the Principles of Learning and Teaching, and the 

particular specialty test(s) for the licensure area(s). 

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

Interdisciplinary 



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

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

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

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

2. The advisory committee must approve the admission to the major. 
Applications must be made no later than fall semester of the junior year. 

An applicant should have a minimum grade point average of 3.50. 
Continuation in the program requires a grade point average of at least 
3.30 each semester. 

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

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

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

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

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

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

At least 30 of the semester hours in the major must be taken in residence 
after the student's application and proposal for the major have been 



approved by the advisory committee. A grade of C or better must be 
obtained in all courses in the interdisciplinary major. 



For the students who design their major, their transcript will give the 
degree and major: "Interdisciplinary" with the concentration as approved by 
the Advisory Committee. 

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

MISSION STATEMENT 

In harmony with Southern Adventist University's Christian environment, 
the School's programs integrate theory and practical skills necessary for 
graduates to serve in communication-related careers or to enter graduate 
school. 

ADMISSION CRITERIA 

To graduate with a degree from the School of Journalism and 
Communication, acceptance to the School is required. Declaration as a 
major is not the equivalent to acceptance to the School of Journalism and 
Communication. Minimum requirements for admission to the School of 
Journalism and Communication are: 

■ Acceptance to Southern Adventist University. 

■ Completion of category A general education English and Math 
requirement. 

■ Completion of COMM 103 and JOUR 105 with a grade of "C" or better. 

■ Earned overall GPA of 2.25 or better. 

Students pursuing a major offered by the School of Journalism and 
Communication should apply for admission at the end of the freshman year. 
Transfer students will be considered for admission after completing six hours 
of major courses in residence with a grade of "C" or better. 

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

The School offers the Bachelor of Arts Degree with majors in Journalism 
(News Editorial), Intercultural Communication, Broadcast Journalism, and 
Public Relations, a Bachelor of Science Degree in Mass Communication, 
Bachelor of Science in Web Publishing with various emphases, a Bachelor of 
Science Degree in Nonprofit Administration and Development as well as an 
Associate of Science Degree in Media Technology. Minors are also 
available in Advertising, Broadcast Journalism, Media Production, 
Intercultural Communication, Journalism (News Editorial), Sales, Public 
Relations, and Visual Communication. 



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

All of the school's bachelor's degree majors prepare students for entry into 
graduate schools nationwide. 

The associate degree in Media Technology prepares the student for 
entry level positions in media production, desktop publishing, or web design. 

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

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

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

JOB OUTLOOK 

Because of the decline in government support of nonprofit, it is more 



School of Journalism and Communication 159 



valuable than ever that nonprofit managers have fund development skills. 
The B.S. in Nonprofit Administration and Development degree is designed to 
provide both training and internships in fund development as well as in 
management. 

The demand for graduates with these competencies is high with an 
estimated 50,000 needed annually to fill new staff vacancies. More than one 
million nonprofit organizations are at work across the country, employing 9 
million people and aided by nearly 90 million volunteers. The Bureau of 
Labor predicts a 45% increase in the need for youth and human service 
professionals by the year 2002, when government support of the nonprofit 
sector will decline by 28% or $1 25 billion. 

MEET THE FIRMS 

Meet the Firms is a program sponsored by the Schools of Business and 
Management, Computing, Journalism and Communication, and Visual Art 
and Design to facilitate students in locating internships and jobs in their fields 
of study. Meet the Firms seminars are held each fall and winter semester in 
preparation for the Meet the Firms event. A variety of invited companies 
meet with students to interview, network, and mentor in preparation for 
placement. 

INTERNSHIPS AND ON-THE-JOB TRAINING 

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

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

An Advisory Council and a Consulting Board advise the school in 

providing internships that give on-the-job experience. The school also 

participates in the General Conference internship program in which students 

work in various denominational institutions. The University radio station, 

WSMC FM90.5, and other media outlets provide learning opportunities for 

students in a number of courses. 

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

Students should demonstrate their growing professionalism through 
involvement in the operation of WSMC FM90.5; in the publication of the 
Southern Accent, Southern Memories, or some other publication; or in 



160 School of Journalism and Communication 



communication activities for a campus, church, or community organization. 

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

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

Students in the School will be given a writing skills test when they take 
JOUR 105. On the basis of the results, advisers will recommend any 
needed remediation, which students must complete before registering for 
other writing courses offered by the school. 

School effectiveness will be assessed by combining the results of the 
cumulative evaluations, student evaluations of courses, questionnaires 
completed by supervisors of interns, alumni, and workshop attendees. To 
determine that the curriculum meets the objectives of the school and the 
standards of the Accrediting Council of Education in Journalism and Mass 
Communication, the faculty makes an ongoing analysis of courses required 
for majors.

Mathematics 



Chair: Arthur Richert 

Faculty: Kevin Brown, Robert Moore 

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

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

ASSESSMENT 

All mathematics majors are required to take the Educational Testing 
Service Major Field Achievement Test in mathematics during their senior 
year. All actuarial studies majors are required to take the Society of Actuaries 
Course 1 examination. The results of these examinations are used in 
ongoing review of the departmental curriculum.

requirements as outlined under ADMISSION PROCEDURES in the School 
of Education and Psychology section of the catalog. Initial admission is 
required before the student can enroll in upper division education courses. 

The student must also complete an application and all other requirements 
for Admission to Student Teaching. Prior to the professional semester, the 
student must take and pass the PRAXIS II licensure exam — both the 
appropriate section of the Principles of Learning and Teaching, and the 
particular specialty test(s) for the licensure area(s). 

An endorsement to teach mathematics as an additional field may be 
obtained by completing a major and secondary certification in another field 
and by completing a minor in mathematics that includes the following

The Modern Languages Department also offers majors in French and 
Spanish, minors in French, Spanish, and German and language courses in 
Italian, for those students wishing to gain a deeper understanding of cultures 
within a global context through the study of language, literature, and society. 
The French and Spanish majors also provides the necessary background for 
graduate study. In addition, the department offers French and Spanish 
Teaching majors for students interested in secondary education. Students 
seeking teacher certification should also pursue the teaching major. 

The ability to communicate with people is increasingly essential in today's 
global community, and knowledge of other cultures and cultural experiences 
should be a key part of the background of a well-educated individual, 
particularly of those with a sense of world mission. By introducing students 
to another language and giving them opportunity and exposure to experience 
other cultures, the Modern Languages Department at Southern Adventist 
University strives in helping to overcome stereotypes and prejudices, foster a 
spirit of appreciation and inclusiveness, and facilitates easier communication 
and interaction with persons of other languages and cultures. 
MISSION STATEMENT 

The Modern Languages Department at Southern Adventist University 
provides a Christian learning environment that enhances the understanding 
of other cultures, and promotes a global dialogue by widening horizons, 
broadening, perspectives, and deepening self-understanding as a worldwide 
family. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

The assessment of students majoring in Spanish, and Spanish Teaching 
consists of a departmental oral and written examination. Candidates will 
demonstrate a passing degree of knowledge and appreciation of Spanish 



Modern Languages 181 



speaking cultures, their literary expression, and the ability to understand 
many of the complexities affecting and resulting from the Spanish, and 
Spanish-American experience in their own context and when in contact with 
other cultures not only in the American continent, but in relation to global 
communities. The assessment of students majoring in French and French 
Teaching is also a departmental oral and written examination. Candidates 
will demonstrate a passing degree of knowledge and appreciation of French 
speaking cultures, their literary expression, and the ability to understand the 
complexities in their own context not only in Europe and America, but as part 
of global communities.

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

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

ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS 

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

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

GENERAL REQUIREMENTS 

Functional Piano: All music majors must demonstrate keyboard 
proficiency by passing a piano proficiency examination or successfully 
completing Class Piano 1-4. Keyboard proficiency includes the ability to 
play hymns, scales, triads, arpeggios, several moderately easy compositions 
and accompaniments and harmonize simple folk melodies. Students will 
take a piano placement test during the first week of the first semester in 
residence. 

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. Performance Concentration grades are assigned following a jury 
examination at the end of each semester. (See Music Lesson Fees under 
Financial Policies section of this catalog.) 

Concert and Recital Attendance: Full-time music majors (students taking 
12 or more credits) are required to attend, as a non-performer, six School 



approved concerts 

per semester, except for the student teaching semester. Attendance shall 
include faculty and senior recitals in the student's applied concentration area. 
Failure to meet this requirement will nullify music major status. 

Music Ensemble Participation: All music majors are required to 
participate in an appropriate music ensemble every semester in full-time 
residence (12 or more hours). During the student teaching semester, 
students are exempted from this requirement. Teacher certification 
candidates must, however, complete eight hours of appropriate ensembles. 
Appropriate ensembles are defined as follows: string majors, Symphony 
Orchestra; wind and percussion majors, Wind Symphony; voice majors, SAU 
Chorale; keyboard majors, any of the above. Students are encouraged to 
participate in a variety of other ensembles as time permits. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

1. PERFORMANCE EVALUATIONS 

a. Concentration : 

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

1 . Completed at least 1 4 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 
lesson=one semester hour credit; one hour lesson=two 
semester hours credit.) 

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

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

4. Completed the end of the semester jury audition examination 
and received a performance grade as determined by the Music 
Faculty (50%) and the Private Lesson Instructor (50%). 
Unsatisfactory performance in any item above will negatively 
affect the final Performance Concentration grade. 

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

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

b. Applied Music : 

Applied Music (MUPF 129, 329) grades will be based on the 
student having met the following criteria. 
1 . Completed at least 1 4 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 

lesson=one semester hour credit; one hour lesson=two 

semester hours credit.) 



1 94 School of M 



USIC 



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



3. Studied, completed, and performed sufficient literature at the 
individual student's level to warrant the credit hours for which 
the individual is registered. 
Unsatisfactory performance in any item above will negatively 

affect the final Applied Music grade. 

2. JUNIOR STANDING 

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

a. An overall grade point average of 2.00 for the Bachelor of Science degree 
and 2.75 for the Bachelor of Music degree. 

b. A grade point average of 2.75 in all music courses. 

c. Completion of the functional piano requirement. 

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

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

concentration area. 

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

3. SENIOR RECITAL 

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

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

4. SENIOR ASSESSMENT EXAMINATION 

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

BACHELOR OF MUSIC CURRICULUM

denominational certification requirements. Students must apply for admission 
to the Teacher Education Program through the School of Education and

MISSION STATEMENT 

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

ASSOCIATE AND BACCALAUREATE PROGRAMS 

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

The nursing curriculum is based on the Neuman Systems Model (NSM) 
which emphasizes wholistic health. The curriculum leads to an Associate 
of Science (A.S.) degree in nursing which may be completed in four 
semesters, plus summer courses. Upon completion of the A.S. degree 
requirements, the student is eligible to take National Council Licensure 
Examination (NCLEX-RN). 

The curriculum in the Baccalaureate Program enhances professional 
opportunities through study in theoretical and clinical nursing. The program 
may be completed in two to four semesters. 

A limited number of students are accepted into both programs in Fall and 
Winter semesters of each year. 

A well-equipped Learning Resource Center (LRC), clinical skills 
laboratory, and a tutorial program, Assisting Students to Achieve 
Professionally (ASAP) are provided to facilitate learning. 

POLICIES 

Students admitted to clinical courses will accept personal responsibility for 
their learning and professional behavior. Each student contracts to abide by 
policies as stated in the SON Handbook. 

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

A nursing education fee is assessed per class to help offset expenses 
which are not covered by regular tuition, (see Nursing Education Deposits 
and Fees under the Financial Policies section of the catalog.) 

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



that would jeopardize their professional performance. 

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

ACCREDITATION 

The programs in nursing are fully accredited by the National League for 
Nursing Accrediting Commission (61 Broadway, New York, NY 10006, 
(212)363-5555, ext. 153). They are recognized by Accrediting Association of 
Seventh-day Adventist Schools, Colleges, and Universities and approved by 
the Tennessee Board of Nursing. 

ASSESSMENT 

The SON has a comprehensive assessment program. AS and BS 
students are required to complete standardized competency examinations 
throughout the nursing curriculum. The associate degree graduate is eligible 
to take the NCLEX-RN examination. The Tennessee State Board of 
Nursing (TBN) requires an annual pass rate of 85% or higher on the 
NCLEX-RN for a school to maintain TBN approval. 

To aid the SON in evaluating teacher and curricular effectiveness, 
associate and baccalaureate graduates complete end of program surveys.

Faculty: Chris Hansen, Henry Kuhlman 

Professor of International Research in Physics: Ray Hefferlin 

Adjunct Faculty: Cyril Roe 

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

The Physics Department offers B.S. and B.A. degrees in physics, B.S. in 
biophysics, and A.S. in Engineering Studies (see page129). 

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

ASSESSMENT 

To help the graduates in Physics evaluate their academic progress and to 

aid the department in evaluating teaching effectiveness, each senior is 

required to: 

I.Take the physics portion of the GRE. A score above the 35th 

percentile is necessary for recommendation for graduate study. 
2. Take PHYS 480 and do original research as a prerequisite. 

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

EFFECTIVENESS 

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



>CHOOL OF KELIGION 



Religion 237 



the recommendation of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 

Faculty Assessment 

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

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

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

3. Periodic meetings of the faculty with the Chair of the Board and the 
presidents of conferences within the Southern Union. 

Student Assessment 

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

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

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

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

4. The religion portion of the annual assessment testing program is 

prepared by the General Education Committee and is administered to all 
students through the office of the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. 

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

PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS 

ADMISSION TO THEOLOGY PROGRAM 

Students seeking admission to the ministerial program with its major in 
Theology make formal application, normally, during their sophomore year. 
Upper class transfer students must apply during the second semester in 
residence. An evaluation and decision by the religion faculty of the student's 
overall potential for success in ministry, including consideration of the 
applicant's academic progress, emotional stability, social and professional 
skills determine individual acceptance as a Ministerial Trainee. If at any

professional development by acquainting the 
student with the multi-faceted responsibilities 
of ministry. It provides a laboratory setting 
in membership care, evangelism, church 
leadership, worship, and preaching for working 
with experienced mentoring pastors and lay 
leaders in a local church. The education is 
necessary before the student can be recommended 
by the School of Religion for church employment. 

Field School of Evangelism 

Full-scale evangelistic meetings will be conducted for six weeks each 
summer under the direction of the Southern Union Conference of 



>CHOOL OF KELIGION 



Religion 243 



Seventh-day Adventists, or for three weeks in a mission settings overseas. 
All Theology majors are required to participate in one such field school. 
Academic credit will be offered for all field schools, and a scholarship will 
be provided for participants in specific field schools. Students planning to 
take the Summer Field School program must have 55 hours with a 2.50 
cumulative GPA and RELP 321, 322, 462 and 463 to be recommended for 
admittance. Applications and scholarship information may be obtained from 
the field school coordinator. 

ADMISSION TO RELIGIOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM 

The Religious Education Program is coordinated with the School of 
Education and Psychology for the University. Planning for certification by 
the states and/or endorsement by the Seventh-day Adventist church for Bible 
teaching is made with the 

certifying officer of the School of Education and Psychology, both for 
admission to the Religious Education program in the sophomore year and to 
the professional semester before the senior year. 

The student must apply for Initial Admission to the Teacher Education 
Program (usually by the end of the sophomore year) after completing all 
requirements as outlined under ADMISSION PROCEDURES in the School 
of Education and Psychology section 

of the catalog. Initial admission is required before the student can enroll in 
upper division education courses. 

The student must also complete an application and all other 
requirements for Admission to Student Teaching. Prior to the professional 
semester, the student must take and pass the PRAXIS II licensure 
exam — both the appropriate section of the Principles of Learning and 
Teaching, and the particular specialty test(s) for the licensure area(s). 

The criteria for admission to Religious Education, requirements for 
secondary Bible teaching, and policies and procedures related to student 
teaching may be 

found in the University catalog under the School of Education and 
Psychology and obtained from the secretary of the School in Summerour 
Hall. 

Teacher Certification and Endorsement 

Those seeking Tennessee State Certification must fulfill requirements 
listed on page 1 12 of this catalog. 

ADMISSION TO RELIGIOUS STUDIES 

The Religious Studies major is a liberal arts major for students interested 
in pursuing a degree other than a Theology or Religious Education degree, 
or by students preparing for professional fields such as medicine, dentistry, 
law, and other graduate studies. 

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

ADMISSION TO ARCHAEOLOGY 

The Archaeology major is a liberal arts major for students interested in 
preparing for graduate studies in archaeology, museum studies, of cultural 
resource management or as preparation for professional field such as 



244 School of R 



CHOOL OF KELIGION 



medicine, dentistry, law, or education. Students choosing to major in 
archaeology must consult with the director of the Institute of Archaeology to 
determine their area of interest in Near Eastern or Classical Studies and to 
lay plans for participation in archaeological fieldwork. 

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

ADMISSION TO THE BIBLE INSTRUCTOR OR LITERATURE 
EVANGELIST PROGRAM 

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

GENERAL EDUCATION COURSES IN RELIGION 

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

GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS 

The candidates for graduation in the program for Theology must have a 
2.50 overall, a 2.50 in their major and in the area of candidacy in order to 
graduate, and also a 2.50 overall for Seminary entrance. In addition to their 
major they must have 20 hours in Biblical Languages, 24 hours in 
professional training, and 12 hours in cognates to qualify for Ministerial 
Candidacy. They must also give evidence of moral, physical, social, and 
intellectual fitness and demonstrate professional commitment in order for the 
School to recommend them as prospective ministerial employees. Those 
students pursuing the Religious Education major must have a 2.75 overall 
and a 2.75 in education and in the field of certification as outlined by the 
School of Education and Psychology. The Religious Studies candidates for 
graduation, and those having majored in Archaeology, must have a 
cumulative grade point average of 2.00 overall and a 2.25 in their major as 
outlined in the University catalog as must candidates for the A. A. in 
Religion. Where exit examinations are required, the candidate must pass 
with a score of 75 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.

Adjunct Faculty: Robert Coombs, Jacinta Naylor, Terrie Ruff 

MISSION STATEMENT AND OBJECTIVES 

The Department of Social Work and Family Studies promotes a Christian 
learning environment that is designed to facilitate and understand of human 
behavior and a mastery of basic skills in working with people in local, 
national, and international settings. 

The curricula for both the BSW and Family Studies degrees are designed 
to achieve the following objectives: 

1 . To help the student gain an understanding of a Christian philosophy of 
human behavior and to master intervention skills based on such a 
philosophy. 

2. To encourage critical thinking, perceptive discussion, intellectual 
curiosity, and cultural awareness. 

3. To develop positive interpersonal skills, communication techniques, 
and decision-making approaches. 

4. To reinforce a commitment to acceptance, caring, and service. 

5. To provide the necessary knowledge base that will enable students to 
experience successful employment and/or admission to graduate 
programs. 

PROGRAMS IN SOCIAL WORK AND FAMILY STUDIES 

The Social Work and Family Studies Department offers a degree in Social 
Work (accredited by the Council on Social Work Education) and in Family 
Studies. Minors are also available in Behavioral Science, Family Studies, 
and Sociology. 

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

SOCIAL WORK 

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

The Bachelor of Science in Social Work (BSW) prepares students for 
entry-level social work generalist baccalaureate practice. The BSW is the 
foundation degree for social work careers in mental health, child welfare, 
health care, public welfare, schools, family service, developmental 
disabilities, service to the aged, industry, business and labor, and criminal 
justice. The degree is designed to also prepare students for informed 



community participation in social welfare issues. The BSW is the preferred 
preparation for the terminal graduate practice degree, the Masters of Social 
Work, (MSW). Job opportunities in the social work field are projected to 
grow at an above average rate during the near future. 

The program makes available a number of experiences, both curricular 
and extracurricular, to enrich its students' academic experience. Multiple 
volunteer opportunities deepen understanding and compassion. A number 
of field experiences enhance commitment and skill building. National and 
international study tours are available to engender cross-cultural and global 
perspectives (see below). The center piece of the applied dimension of the 
curriculum is the 400 hour FIELD PRACTICUM in which each student 
participates in "real life" experience while being supervised by a seasoned 
and credentialed professional social worker. 

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

STUDENT ADVISORY COMMITTEE 

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

SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM POLICIES 

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

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

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

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



Work and Family Studies 259 



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



ACCREDITATION 

The social work program is accredited with the Council on Social Work 
Education. 

ADMISSION PROCEDURES 

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

During the second semester of the freshmen year the student is to 

complete an 

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

1 . Acceptance to Southern Adventist University. 

2. Completion of application form, autobiographical statement, and a 
writing sample on specific social policy. 

3. Submission of a current unofficial transcript. 

4. Have an overall grade point average of 2.50 or higher (exceptions 
may be made for persons who do not meet the grade point average 
requirements if they are strong candidates on the basis of other 
criteria). Have completed SOCW 211: Introduction to Social Work 
and/or SOCW 212: Social Welfare as an Institution with a grade of C 
or higher. 

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

260 Social W 



ORK AND V AMILY STUDIES 



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

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

Students intending to major in social work 
who are attending other colleges or 
universities, or who are transferring from 
another major at Southern Adventist University, 
will be expected to apply for admission to the 
Social Work Program by April 1 of their sophomore 
year. IN ORDER TO STAY ON SCHEDULE WITH THE 
SEQUENCE OF SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM COURSES, AN 
INTRODUCTORY SOCIAL WELFARE/SOCIAL WORK COURSE, 
INCLUDING 4 HOURS OF DOCUMENTED VOLUNTEER 
EXPERIENCE, MUST BE TAKEN BEFORE ENTERING THE 
SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM. 

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

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



Work and Family Studies 261 



FIELD PRACTICUM 

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

1 . Take a standardized social work achievement 
test (PACAT) in the winter semester of the 
senior year. 

2 . Successfully complete both the oral and 
written sections of the Senior Exit Exam. 



262 Social W 



OCIAL W ORK AND t 1 AMILY STUDIES 



3 . Present a report on a piece of original 
research they have designed in the research 
classes and completed during the field 
practicum. This report will be part of the 
Senior Seminar and Field Practicum 
Integrative Seminar. 
Program effectiveness will be assessed by- 
combining the results of the above cumulative 
evaluations. An ongoing analysis of courses 
and course content required for majors is made 
by the social work faculty to assure that the 
curriculum meets the objectives of the program 
and the standards of the national accrediting 
body, the Council on Social Work Education. 

FAMILY STUDIES 

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

ASSESSMENT 

To help the graduates in Family Studies 
evaluate their academic progress and to aid the 
department in evaluating teaching 
effectiveness, each senior is required to: 
1 . Take an oral exam during the fall semester 
of the senior year that will be based on 
selected course work. 
2 . Present a research paper or family life 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. 

DEPARTMENT STUDY TOURS 

The Social Work and Family Studies Department 
sponsors a study tour to New York City yearly 
during Thanksgiving vacation and a study tour 
to Europe every other summer. The objectives 
of these tours are to facilitate a better 
understanding of peoples and cultures and to

School of 

Visual Art and Design 



Dean: Wayne Hazen 

Faculty: Randall Craven, David George, Zachary Gray, Frank Mirande, 

Maria Roybal-Hazen, Dean Scott, John Williams 
Adjunct Faculty: Colin Brady, John Cline, Brian Dunne, Douglas Lively, 

Jonathan Row 

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

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

One of the goals of the School of Visual Art and Design is to create an 
environment where Christian young people can learn the art of film making. 
The Bachelor of Science degree in Film Production is designed to meet this 
need. Resources include DV, Betacam, and 16mm acquisition devices, as 
well as extensive lighting, grip, and post production facilities. 

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

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

This emphasis is intended for those students who plan to enter a 
graduate program in art therapy. The program endeavors to focus the 
pre-art therapy student on learning to appreciate art and understand the 
creative process while developing artistic skills in studio art through the 
elaboration of a portfolio of original artwork. A basic knowledge of human 
development and psychological theories for understanding human behavior 
are gained by the completion of a psychology minor. A sensitive recognition 
of the professional helping relationship developed within the Christ-centered, 
redemptive philosophy of healing and education is nurtured as well.

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

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

Pr E P R F E S S 10 N A L PROGRAMS 



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

ANESTHESIA (CRNA) 

Adviser: L. Phil Hunt 

Registered nurses who are experienced and comfortable working in critical 
care areas may become registered nurse anesthetists. Graduation from an

LAW 

Adviser: Ben McArthur 

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

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

Southern Adventist University offers a Political Economy minor, which 

combines an interdisciplinary selection of courses helpful for law school 
preparation. This eighteen-hour minor consists of: 

1 . ECON 224 Principles of Economics 3 hours

Rhonda Scott-Ennis, Keith Snyder 

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

BIOL 151-152, 313*, 316*, 330*, 340*, 412, 416*, 417*, 418* 8 hours

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

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

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

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

Most medical schools are members of the American Medical College 
Application Service (AMCAS). Applications must be submitted through this 
service. The AMCAS application may be obtained from the Counseling and 
Testing Office, directly from AMCAS, or filled out electronically on the web. 
Applications are available between May 1 and November 1 for entry into 
medical school the following year.

Washington, DC 20036-1989 
(Http://www. aamc.org) 

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. 

OPTOMETRY 

Adviser: Chris Hansen 

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

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

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

BIOL 151-152, 330, 416, 418 18 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311 12 hours

OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE 

Adviser: Joyce Azevedo, Ann Foster, Stephen A. Nyirady, Joel Ongaro, 
Keith Snyder 

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

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

Requirements for admission are similar to those for allopathic medical 
schools such as Loma Linda University School of Medicine. Students apply 
to schools of osteopathic medicine through the American Association of 
Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS).

AACOMAS uses a web-based application. Go to AACOMAS online. 
(http://www.aacomas.aacom.org) 

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: Bruce Schilling 

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

Admission requirements to colleges of pharmacy vary from school to 
school so the student should consult the catalog or web page of the school of 
his/her choice for specific course requirements. The American Association 
of Colleges of Pharmacy maintains links to all schools of pharmacy at its web 
page, www.aacp.org. All schools place a strong emphasis on chemistry, 
biology, physics, and mathematics. 

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

BIOL 151-152, 225 12 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312 16 hours 

ENGL 101 -102 6 hours 

MATH 181, 215 6 hours

Speech or Communications 3 hours 

Social Sciences 6 hours 

(Psychology, Sociology, Economics, Anthropology, Political Science) 

Humanities 6 hours 

(Literature, Language, History, Philosophy) 
General Electives 4 hours 

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

Loma Linda University is targeting the start of its School of Pharmacy for 
the fall of 2002. Admission requirements include: 

BIOL 151-152 8 hours

One semester of an introductory computer class must also be included or 
demonstrate computer competency. Additional courses in Anatomy, Physiology, 
Biochemistry, Statistics, and Chemistry (Quantitative or Instrumental Analysis, 
Physical Chemistry) are desirable but not required. Loma Linda also indicates 
that they will give preference to students who have completed a baccalaureate 
degree in chemistry, biology, physics, or a related scientific field. 



PODIATRIC MEDICINE: 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

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

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

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

VETERINARY MEDICINE 

Adviser: Safawo Gullo 

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 



Non-Degree Pr eprofessional Programs 297 



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 16 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312, 341 20 hours 

ENGL 101 -102 6 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. 

Information on veterinary schools and applications, through the 
Association of American Veterinary Medical Colleges, are available online at

PLEAS 



E TAKE NOTE 

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



le 



All scholarships are divided and distributed equally over t 
fall and winter semesters. Scholarships are not availabl 
for summer sessions. 

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



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



( : or 



SAU scholarships are applied. The total scholarship cost to 
Southern shall not exceed the charge for tuition and fees. 
Miscellaneous personal expenses are not included in the 
costs covered by SAU scholarships or the combination of 



Finances 303 

tuition assistance and SAU scholarships. 

University merit-based scholarships are available only for 
full-time students taking 12 to 16 hours at SAU. 

Southern reserves the right to change or amend any 
of the scholarship policies at any time. 



SmartStart Free Tuition Savings 

To take advantage of free tuition for one class, entering freshmen are 
welcome to apply for the special summer SmartStart session July 29 to 
August 23. To find out more, call Admissions at 1 -800-SOUTHERN. 

Grants 

Southern Adventist University need-based institutional grants are 
awarded from institutional and endowment funds to students who have 
financial need and are achieving academically. The amount of these awards 
is variable per year depending upon the student's need and availability of 
funds. 

The amount of a student's SAU need-based institutional grant award, as 
well as his/her federal grant award, will be determined after all the necessary 
federal and institutional applications are completed and processed. If the 
student's academic progress falls below the required level, the SAU grant 
may be canceled. Any requests for exceptions should be addressed to the 
Academic Progress Committee. 

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

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

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

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant — Awarded to 
students with exceptional need when funds are available from the federal 



304 Finances 
government. 

Eligibility for Institutional Funds 

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

Loans 

Federal Nursing Student Loans are available to nursing students only, 
with demonstrated financial need. Repayment and five percent interest 
assessment begin nine months after a student graduates, leaves school, 
drops below half-time enrollment, or drops from the nursing program. 



Federal Perkins Loan — If eligible and funds are available, students can 
borrow up to $2,850 from the federal government through Southern 
Adventist University. Repayment and five percent interest begin nine months 
after a student graduates, leaves school, or drops below half-time 
enrollment. 

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

For PLUS loans disbursed since July 1 , 1 997, the interest rate is variable, 
but not higher than nine percent. Variable interest rates are set each June. 
For more information on the interest rate, parents should contact the 
organization that holds their loan. 

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

The procedure for applying is the same as for a Federal Stafford Loan. 
Southern Adventist University can refuse to certify a loan application, or can 
certify a loan for an amount less than a student's parents would be eligible 
for. The parents will be notified in writing, with a full explanation if such a 
circumstance should arise. 

Federal law requires lenders to send the loan proceeds to the school in at 
least two payments. Payments will be sent either by electronic transfer or by 
check made co-payable to the school and to the parents. 

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

If a deferment — a postponement of repayment — applies (including a 
deferment for school enrollment), the parents' repayment of the principal 
amount borrowed will not begin until the deferment ends. The interest on the 
loan is not deferred during the time of the deferment, although the 
organization that holds the loan may allow the interest to accumulate until the 



Finances 305 

deferment ends. In such a case, however, the interest will be added to the 
principal, increasing the amount of principal that will need to be repaid. 

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

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

Dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to: 

$2,625 if they are first-year students enrolled in a program of study 

that is a full academic year. 

$3,500 if they have completed at least 24 credit hours, and the 

remainder of their program is a full academic year. 

$5,500 a year if they have completed at least 55 credit hours and the 

remainder of the program is at least one academic year. 

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



Independent undergraduate students may borrow up to: 

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

$7,500 if they have completed at least 24 credit hours and the 
remainder of the program is a full academic year. (At least $4,000 of 
this amount must be in unsubsidized Stafford Loans.) 
$1 0,500 a year if they have completed at least 55 credit hours and the 
remainder of their program is at least one academic year. (At least 
$5,000 of this amount must be in unsubsidized Stafford Loans.) 
The total Stafford Loan debt that an independent undergraduate student 
may accumulate is $46,000. 

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

Associate Degree Students will be considered as having less than 55 
credit hours for loan purposes. 

Undergraduate Students Attending Less than a Full Academic Year 

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

Work 

Federal Work-Study Program — Federal Work-Study funds are available to 
undergraduate students with demonstrated financial need. Under the 
Federal Work-Study program, the employer pays a small part of the 



306 Finances 

student's wages, and the government pays the remainder. Most work-study 
positions are on campus. Students are responsible to acquire their own 
jobs. 

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

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

Other Scholarships, Grants, and Loans 

Certain scholarships, grants, and loans are available to students. Details 
concerning amounts and qualifications for recipients of these funds can be 
obtained from the Student Finance Office. 

Veterans' Benefits 

Southern Adventist University is approved for the training of veterans as 
an accredited training institution. VA benefits may not be available for 
students enrolled in classes offered off the Collegedale campus. Those who 
qualify for educational benefits should contact the nearest Department of 
Veterans' Affairs. 

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

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

FEE WAIVERS AND REBATES 

Family Rebate 

When two students from the same immediate family who have the same 
financial sponsor are enrolled at Southern Adventist University's Collegedale 
campus at the same time, they may receive a five percent rebate on tuition 
and general fee. This also applies to married student couples. A ten percent 
rebate may be given when three or more students from the same immediate 
family are enrolled at SAU at the same time, and have the same financial 
sponsor. 

Post-Graduate Tuition Plan for Undergraduate Classes 

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

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



Finances 307 

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

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

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

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

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

Tuition and Fee Waiver for Student Missionaries 

Those students planning to serve as Student Missionaries and enrolling in 
NOND 227 and 228, Christian Service I and II, will receive a rebate of 
$2,890/semester to cover 90% of the tuition for these classes ($2,700) and 
the general fee ($190). 

Students enrolled in GEOG 306, Cultural Geography, and COMM 
291/391, Intercultural Communication Practicum, will be given tuition rebate 
of $333/semester hour. 

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



Senior Citizen Tuition Plan 

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

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

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

Collegedale Academy Students Tuition Fee Waiver 

Collegedale Academy students who have finished their junior year may 
take up to six credit hours at SAU at a rate of Vfe of the current tuition rate per

rate. 

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Applications 

The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), or Federal Aid 
Renewal Application (FARA) for returning students must be submitted annually to 
apply for the federal, state, and institutional aid programs. This application 
should be mailed directly to the Federal Aid Programs in the envelope provided 
by the government or completed on the Internet at www.fafsa.ed.gov. 

To receive a loan, a student must complete and return to the SAU Student 
Finance Office a Stafford Loan Master Promissory Note. This Note needs to be 
submitted only one time during a student's attendance at SAU. A list of 
preferred lenders is supplied with the promissory note. 

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

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

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

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

4. A copy of FAFSA worksheets A, B, and C. This copy should be mailed to 
SAU with the Federal Verification Worksheet. 

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

Transfer Student Financial Aid Eligibility and Change in Academic Program 
Eligibility 

Financial aid for students transferring from other institutions will be 
determined by their academic standing, which will be calculated on all hours 
SAU has accepted. Students with a GPA below policy will be on financial 
aid probation for one semester. If the cumulative GPA or the completion 
rates are below the required levels at the end of the probationary period, 
students will be ineligible to receive financial aid. Deletion of transfer hours 
from Southern Adventist University academic records may affect a student's 
financial aid eligibility, depending on the number of hours deleted. Any 
change in academic program, such as changing from a baccalaureate 
degree program to an associate degree program, or from an associate 
degree program to a one-year certificate degree program, may affect a 
student's eligibility for financial aid. 

Transient Student Financial Aid Applications 

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

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



Finances 309 

determining eligibility. 

FINANCIAL AID AWARD AND DISBURSEMENT PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Award Procedures 

A Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to each accepted applicant after 
Southern Adventist University's Student Finance Office receives the FAFSA 
results (electronically received from the federal processor). To confirm and 
reserve the funds offered, students should return the signed acceptance of 
the offer within ten days of receipt. It will be assumed that students are 
accepting the full award amounts if the award letter is not returned within the 
allotted time. 

Financial aid awards are made on a rolling basis, as long as funds are 
available, with the most needy students receiving priority. The financial aid 
award package may be a combination of: 1) Federal Work-Study, 2) federal 
student loans, 3) federal, state, private, or institutional grants or scholarships. 

Disbursement of Financial Aid Funds 

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

Financial Aid Overaward Procedures 

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



FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS 

General Requirements 

Financial aid awards are made for one academic year to students who 
are accepted for admission, demonstrate a financial need, and are enrolled 
for at least six credit hours on the Collegedale campus. Recipients of 
government aid must hold U.S. citizenship or a permanent resident visa. 
Students desiring aid must reapply each year, have a GED or high school 
diploma on file in the Records Office, and continue to make satisfactory 
academic progress toward a degree to receive financial aid. 

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

Academic Progress Requirements 

Academic Progress Policy 

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

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

Academic Progress Standards 
Qualitative Standards: 

Cumulative Credit Hours Attempted Cumulative Grade Point 

Average 

0-23 1.50 or above 

24-54 1.75 or above 

55 or above 

2.00 or above 

Quantitative Standards: 

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

Time Frame for Receiving Financial Aid 

Max. Time to Receive Financial 
Aid 

186 attempted hours 
96 attempted hours 
190 attempted hours 
198 attempted hours 
103 attempted hours 
231 attempted hours 
132 attempted hours 

The above maximum time frame to receive financial aid is based on 1.5 
times the number of credit hours to attain a degree. Hours from the first 
degree will be counted as attempted hours toward a second degree. Taking 
a second major does not count as a second degree. 

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

Progress Review 

A financial aid recipient's progress at Southern Adventist University will 
be reviewed at the end of each semester and will be based on the number of 
attempted hours a student completes during each semester of an academic

year and the cumulative grade point average (GPA). 

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

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

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

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

RETURN OF TITLE IV FUNDS 

Amount of Title IV Aid Earned 

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

Amount of Title IV Aid to Return 

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

For further explanation, please contact the disbursement officer. 

Financial Aid Refund Policy 

The SAU refund policy for students withdrawing from classes is outlined 
on pages 292-293. A $100 administrative drop fee will be charged to 
students who withdraw completely during the 100% refund period. 

Since financial aid is considered to be used first for direct educational 
costs (tuition, fees, room, board, and books), when a student withdraws from 
all classes and under the refund policy receives a refund of these charges, 
any credit will be used to reimburse financial aid programs first, and any 
remaining credit will be refunded to the student. 

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

1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans 

2. Subsidized Federal Stafford loans 

3. Federal Perkins loans 

4. Parent Federal (PLUS) loans 

5. Federal Pell Grant program 

6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant program 



312 Finances 

7. Other Title IV aid programs 

Financial Aid Repayment Policy 

There are specific repayment policies for students who withdraw 
completely from SAU and have received financial aid in excess of their 
incurred educational costs. An example would be the student who received a 
Stafford Loan and did not use the full amount for educational costs. An 
amount owing to any federally funded student aid program will be covered by 
SAU and then charged to the student's account. 

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

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

Those students who have not yet received their first bachelor's degree 
who desire deferment on their student loan payments during their mission 
service placement must enroll in NOND 227 Christian Service I, 6 hours, and 
NOND 228 Christian Service II, 6 hours. 

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

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

STUDENT LABOR 

Student Labor Regulations 

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

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

All hiring formalities are completed in the Human Resources Office. 
Students must bring their Social Security cards and one identification 
document, such as a 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 I-20 or other legal document before employment can be 
arranged. 

Students are expected to maintain satisfactory job performance and meet 
all work appointments, including those during examination week. Work 
superintendents reserve the right to dismiss students if their service and 
work records are unsatisfactory. Should a student find it necessary to be 



Finances 313 

absent from work, s/he must make arrangements with the work supervisor 
and, if ill, with Student Health Services. 

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

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

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

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

International Student Labor Regulations 

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

Student Payroll Policies and Procedures 

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

Students who receive Federal Work-Study earnings will receive 100% of 
their net earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be 
applied to their student account or they voluntarily return their earnings to be 
applied to their student account. 

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

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

Student Workers' Compensation Insurance 

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

Summer Work Incentive Program 

The following incentive program applies only to residence hall students 
working on campus. 
1. Work supervisors may recommend raises for a student's summer 
wage within the pre-set wage rate scale. 



314 Finances 

2. Two-thirds of the residence hall student's summer rent will be refunded 
after registration for the fall term, provided: 
a. A minimum of 300 hours of summer work is completed. 
b.The student is enrolled for at least six credit hours for the fall term. 

STUDENT FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY 

Student Responsibility for University Expenses 

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

Before registering, each student must submit a Payment Contract to the 
Student Finance Office signed by the student indicating acknowledgment of 
this responsibility. 

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

Student Account Cash Withdrawals 

Students who have sufficient financial aid to cover their tuition and books, 
live out of the residence halls, and have a no-charge ID card may receive 
more than 25% of their earnings. Those whose parents have paid the 
semester or year in advance and have written permission from their parents 
may also receive more than 25% of their earnings. 

Students who receive Federal Work-Study earnings will receive 100% of 
their earnings unless they give written permission for their earnings to be 
applied directly to their student account. 

Parents wishing to provide a student with cash for personal expenses 
should use a means other than depositing funds to the student's account. 
(See Student Banking below.) 

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

Student Check Cashing 

Students are encouraged to use their home banks or a local area bank for 
their personal financial services. SAU does not cash personal checks. 

Student Banking 

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

Student Personal Effects Liability 

When determining what to bring to campus, students should remember 
that the University is not responsible for the personal effects of any student 



Finances 315 

even though such effects may be required by the University for student use, 
or required by the University to be stored in a designated location. 
University-carried insurance does not insure the personal effects of any 
individual. The University recommends that students consider carrying 
insurance against possible losses. 
FEES AND CHARGES 
Advance Payment 

All students must pay an advance payment of at least $2,500 of their fees 
and charges before registering for the fall semester (or $1,250, if registering 
for the first time for the winter semester).

advance or pay the required $2,500 advance payment. No discount is 
available for students who fall in this category. 

The following fees and charges apply only to undergraduate students on 
the Collegedale campus. Information concerning graduate student charges

Approved Items to Charge to Student Account 

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

Advance Payment 

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

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

Food Service Charges 

The cafeteria plan of boarding allows residence hall students the privilege 
of choosing food and paying only for what is selected. Students are 
encouraged to eat healthfully while eating at the cafeteria, Campus Kitchen, 
or KR's Place. Residence hall students are required to pay the minimum 
cafeteria charge of $160 per month which will be prorated for vacations and 
holidays. No minimum charge is made during the summer months. 

Village students may charge food at the cafeteria, Campus Kitchen, and 
KR's Place as long as their school accounts are paid monthly by the due 
date. Should a village student account become 30 days past due the 
privilege of charging food will be withdrawn. 

Books and School Supplies Charges 

Books and school supplies may be charged at the Campus Shop. A 



Finances 317 

student may charge up to a maximum allowable amount for books. A 
separate maximum applies to school supplies and miscellaneous items. 

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



Nursing Education Deposit and Fees 

Upon acceptance to the clinical nursing program, students are required to 
send a deposit of $380 to hold their placement in the class. Requests for 
refund must be made through the School of Nursing no later than August 1. 
All A.S. nursing classes will have a $150 Nursing Education fee assessed 
per class, and B.S. nursing classes will have a $54 Nursing Education fee 
assessed per class. 

Music Lesson Fees 

Private music instruction is available to all students through the School of 
Music. Students enrolled in lessons will be charged $150 per semester hour 
(14 half-hour lessons) in addition to tuition (regular or audit rate). 

Excused absences may be made up at the discretion of the teacher if 
previous arrangements have been made. Lessons falling on holidays or 
during vacations will not be made up unless this results in the student having 
fewer than 1 4 lessons for the semester. 

International Student Deposit 

In addition to the regular University costs, international students must 
provide an International Student Deposit of $3,000 U.S. This applies to all 
international students except documented permanent residents of the U.S. or 
residents of Canada and Bermuda. The deposit must be received by the 
Accounting Office before a U.S. Immigration Form I-20 is sent to the 
prospective student for entry to the U.S. Because mail service from many 
foreign countries takes time, this deposit should be sent at least six weeks 
prior to enrollment. This deposit, once paid, remains untouched (with interest 
paid once a year at the rate of two percent) until the student graduates, 
withdraws from SAU, or is unable to pay his or her student account, at which 
time the international deposit will be applied to the student's account. If the 
student's account has been paid in full, the deposit will be refunded after the 
final statement is issued. 

Health and Accident Insurance 

University policy requires all students to have adequate accident and 
health insurance covering both inpatient and outpatient services. The same 
coverage is encouraged for all spouses and dependents. All students who 
are taking six or more hours (three or more hours during any summer 
session) or who are living in University housing will automatically be enrolled 
in the University health and accident plan at the time of registration, and will 
continue to be enrolled each successive fall semester until a waiver form is 
signed. Students who have signed a waiver form may later request 
enrollment at any time. The student may sign a waiver form indicating s/he 
does not want the University insurance because: 

11. The student has 

adequate US insurance coverage equal to or 
better than the University insurance plan. 



318 Finances 

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

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

Once a waiver is signed, it will remain in 
effect until coverage is revoked and coverage 
is requested in writing to the SAU Risk 
Management Department. The student will not 
be automatically enrolled for insurance, and 
the University will not be responsible for any 
medical claims or expenses once a waiver is 
signed. 

A refund of the premium is allowed only upon 
entry into the military services. 

Residence Hall/Campus Housing Charges 

Residence Hall Costs 

Room charges are based on two students 
occupying one room. Residence hall 
accommodations costs for each individual are 
$2,160 for the school year. Charges are made 
on a semester basis beginning in August and 
January. A student may, upon application to 
the residence hall dean, be allowed to room alone 
at a cost of $3,240. Residence hall students 
living in the Southern Village apartments are 
charged $2,360 for the school year. If 
sufficient rooms are available, s/he requires 
approval from the Student Finance Office. It 
is the student' s responsibility to have arranged 
for a roommate unless specific arrangements have 
been made to room alone. No pets, firearms, 
or weapons are allowed in the residence hall. 

No refunds are made for vacation periods or 



Finances 319 

absences from the campus. When a student 
withdraws, a prorated portion of the semester 
charge, beginning with the date of non-occupancy 
of the room, will be refunded. 

Residence Hall Deposit and Deposit Refund 
A room deposit of $150 is required of each 
resident. To guarantee a room in the residence 
hall, payment of this deposit must be made by 
July 15. After July 15, no room is held for a 
student whose deposit has not been paid. This 
deposit should be sent directly to Southern 
Adventist University and is held in reserve 
until the student graduates and/or permanently 
moves out of the residence hall. The deposit 
is in addition to any other payment, and is 
refundable if requested before July 15. 

University Apartment Costs 

University-owned apartments may be rented by 
students taking a minimum of six hours each 
semester (preference is given to married 
students) . The apartments range in size from 
two to six rooms and are rented furnished or 
unfurnished. Rents range from $284 to $600 and 
will be charged by semester in August and 
January. Rent will be charged monthly during 
the summer. Charges are based on the date of 
issue and return of keys and proper clearance 
with the office of the Vice President for 
Financial Administration. No pets, firearms, 
or weapons are allowed in University housing. 

University Apartment Deposit and Deposit 
Refund 

Married students and single students over 23 
years of age renting an apartment from the 
University must pay a housing deposit of $300 
to reserve an apartment. This housing deposit 
is due before occupancy and is sent directly 



320 Finances 

to Southern Advent ist University. The deposit 
is in addition to any other payment. 

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

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

Adventist Colleges Abroad Fees 

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 Adventist University's 
Admissions Office or Modern Languages Department. 

2. Complete and return the ACA application to the Modern Languages 
Department. 

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 the 
chosen school by August 1 . 

b. Semester System: Pay one-half of the total charges and tour 
charge by August 1. The remaining one-half must be paid by 
November 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, check, money order, or credit card. 
University funded scholarships are not available for ACA students, nor 

will they receive a family rebate. When planning their finances for the ACA 
program students must: 

1 . Have their Southern Adventist University account paid to date. 

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

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

4. Pay SAU for charges before the University makes payment to ACA. If 
payment is not received, students will be sent back from ACA.

SAU REFUND POLICIES 

Refund for Complete or Partial Withdrawal 

Residence hall and University apartment refunds are prorated according 
to the number of days the student occupies the room subtracted from the 
number of days charged. 

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



Tuition refunds are calculated as follows: 



1 week

Refund of Credit Balances 

Credit balances are refundable, upon request from financial sponsor, 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 



322 Finances 

may be refunded earlier upon request to the Student Finance Office. 

If the student has a credit balance caused by a financial aid over-award, 
the necessary credit will be applied to the aid funds, according to the 
Financial Aid Refund Policy described on page 283. If any credit remains, it 
will be refunded as described above. 

METHODS OF PAYMENT 

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

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

Discount Policy 

Year in Advance/Guaranteed Tuition Plan — SAU offers a five percent 
discount if payment is made by cash or check and a three percent discount if 
payment is made by credit card or Parent Plus Loan. 

Semester in Advance — SAU offers a three percent discount if payment is 
made by cash or check and a one percent discount if payment is made by 
credit card. 

Monthly Payment by 23 rd of Month — SAU offers a one percent discount 
if payment is made by cash or check. No discount is offered if payment is 
made by credit card. 

A worksheet for each student desiring the prepayment discount must be 
completed by the Student Finance Office. 

Payment Plans I and III — Cash in Advance 

Students choosing to pay the semester or year in advance must, on or 
before registration, pay the full amount required by the plan, less any 
advance payments 

or credits. Amounts paid as a result of scholarships, grants, and/or student 
loans are excluded from the amount on which the discount is allowed. 

Payment Plan II — Guaranteed Tuition Plan 

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

I.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 (including 

beginning second semester) will remain in effect until the student 
graduates. The student must maintain full-time continuous registration, 
not to exceed four years, excluding a one-year leave of absence which 
may be given for Student Missionaries, 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 will void the contract. 

5. Participants in this plan are eligible for a discount according to the 

Discount Policy on the total estimated cost the first year of participation 
only (calculated as in Payment Plan I). The next years, the tuition rate 
will remain the same as year one, and the appropriate discount will be 



Finances 323 

given on general fee, room, board, and books only. 

6. Dependents of denominational workers may deduct the denominational 

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

7. Student earnings may be withdrawn from the student's account and will 

not reduce the amount to be paid. 

8. Costs in excess of the total estimated amount to be paid will be billed 

monthly and should be paid on a monthly basis or the contract is void. 

9. Should the estimated cost be less than the amount paid, the credit will 

be refunded after June 1 . 

10. If the payment contract is broken for any of the above reasons, or the 
student withdraws during the school year, the student may re-enter 
Payment Plan II based on the tuition rate of enrollment for the new 
year. 

This plan only guarantees the tuition rate — not the room, board, books, 

and other miscellaneous charges. The student/financial sponsor must 

pre-pay each year the total estimated costs no later than the last day of 

registration. 

Payment Plan IV — Monthly Payments 

A monthly payment plan is available for the 2002-2003 academic year 
through the Student Finance Office. All students on the monthly payment 
option must pay an advance payment of $2,500. 

Credit Card Payments 

The Cashier's Office honors VISA, MasterCard, Discover, American 
Express and debit (if card owner is present) cards for making payments on a 
student's account. There are different discount rates when making payments 
by credit card. (See Discount Policy p. 293) No cash withdrawal service 
is available from these cards — this service may be obtained from a local 
bank. 

When using a credit card to pay on an account, the following information 
must be supplied: 1) name of credit card being used; 2) cardholder's name; 
3) credit card number; 4) expiration date; 5) student's name and ID number; 
6) amount to be charged on card; and, 7) the billing address of the credit 
card. 

Automatic Credit Card Payments 

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

Personal Check Payments 

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



324 Finances 

posting purposes. 

BILLING PROCEDURES 

Monthly Statements 

Statements will show all monthly/semester charges and credits and will 
be mailed to students on or before the 13 th of each month. The minimum 
payment is due the 28 th of each month. In some cases, the statement may 
take an extended about of mail time to reach the parent or financial sponsor. 
It is the responsibility of the student to communicate the minimum due to the 
parents/financial sponsor in these cases. If the minimum payment due is 
received on or before the 23 rd , a one percent discount may be subtracted 
from the payment. Students who do not pay by the 28 th will be assessed a 
$25 late fee. Students who do not pay within three weeks after the 28 th will 
have their ID cards deactivated. Students' registrations will be canceled if 
payment is not received within four weeks after the 28 th . Those wishing to 
re-enroll must then pay the entire semester's estimated expenses, and a 
$100 reinstatement of registration fee. 

Before registering for a new semester, the student account balance must 
be paid in full. 

Tuition Assistance 

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

some other organization. Upon receiving this information, Student Finance 
will bill the parent's employer for the appropriate amount. It is still the 
responsibility of the parents to ensure that the tuition assistance is paid by 
their employer. If a student receives an award letter that does not include 
tuition assistance, but that student is eligible for tuition assistance, the award 
letter must be adjusted. Please notify the Student Finance Office if this is 
the case. 

Transcript Requests for Currently Enrolled Students 

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

An official grade transcript will be issued for a currently enrolled student 
when the student's account is current according to the payment plan the 
student is on. Exceptions may be considered to receive an official grade 
transcript when the account is current except for a pending disbursement of 
a Federal student loan. A student's failure to comply with instructions can 
delay the release of a transcript. 

When payment is made by personal check, the transcript will be held for 
ten working days to allow the check to clear. TO EXPEDITE THE RELEASE 
OF THESE DOCUMENTS, THE STUDENT SHOULD SEND A MONEY 
ORDER, CASHIER'S CHECK, OR PAY BY CREDIT CARD TO COVER 
THE BALANCE OF THE ACCOUNT WHEN REQUESTING THE 
DOCUMENTS. Under provisions of federal loan programs, Southern 
Adventist University withholds any records when payments for these loans 
become past due or are in default. 

COLLECTION POLICIES AND PROCEDURES 

Accounts Collection Policy 

Students completing or terminating their studies with the University are 



Finances 325 

required to pay their balance in full prior to leaving. Payments due on 
non-current accounts that are not received by the last working day of the 
month will be charged a one percent service charge. 

When a student who was enrolled first semester does not enroll second 
semester and has left with an unpaid account, that account will be 
designated a non-current student account and will be reported to Experian, a 
credit bureau, as of February 15. 

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

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

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

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

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

Policy on Transcript, Diploma, and Test Score Requests for Non-current 
Students 

It is the policy of the University to withhold transcripts, diplomas, test 
scores, certificates of completion, and other records if a student has an 
unpaid or past-due account at the school or (if a federal loan borrower) has 
not completed an Exit Interview. 

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

When payment is made by personal check, the transcript will be held for 
ten working days to allow the check to clear. TO EXPEDITE THE RELEASE 
OF THESE DOCUMENTS, THE STUDENT SHOULD SEND A MONEY 
ORDER, CASHIER'S CHECK OR PAY BY CREDIT CARD TO COVER 
THE BALANCE OF THE ACCOUNT WHEN REQUESTING THE 
DOCUMENTS. Under provisions of federal loan programs, Southern 
Adventist University withholds any records when payments for these loans 
become past due or are in default. 

Policy on Legal Proceedings 

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

Bankruptcy Policies and Procedures 

Recognizing that the discharge of a debt through bankruptcy proceedings 
prohibits a creditor from subsequently pursuing the collection of the debt, the 
University, upon notification by the court of such filing, will comply with this 
legal prohibition. No further services will be extended. The bankruptcy of 



326 Finances 

the financial sponsor in no way changes the underlying financial obligation of 
the student to pay his or her student account.
