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 any time, without prior notice . 



Something to keep in mind — 



Although this CATALOG is not a textbook, you will refer to it often during your 
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 
and Associate Vice President for Academic Administration are also available to 
assist you. If you need explanations about financial questions, talk with the Director 
of Enrollment Services or the Assistant Directors 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."

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 forthe 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, refiectivejudgment, 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 1 896 the name was changed to Southern Industrial School and five 
years later to Southern Training School. 

In 1 9 1 6, 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 
TCollegedale" was given to the anticipated community. At its new location, the school 
opened as Southern Junior College and continued as such until 1 944 when it achieved senior 
college status and the name was changed to Southern Missionary College. In 1 982 the name 
was changed to Southern College of Seventh-day Adventists. 

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

SETTING 

Southern Adventist University's one-thousand-acre Collegedale campus is nestled in a 
valley 18 miles east of Chattanooga. The quietness and beauty of the surroundings are in 
keeping with the University's educational philosophy.

from 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 45). 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 afterthe 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. 



12 A] 



AMISSIONS 



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 s/he can qualify for readmission to the institution from 
which they have 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 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-l 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 1-20 must first submit a legible copy of their passport, 
showing legal name. 

According to 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 monitors hours worked and notifies the student 
and the campus employer when a student works in excess of 20 hours per week. If a 
student's work exceeds 20 hours per week, the student will become out of status with 
Immigration Services. Spouses may work only if they have a student visa (or other 
eligible visa) of their own. 

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. Form 1-20 (from Southern Adventist University) 

3. A valid passport 

4. A valid visa to enter the United States 

5. Sufficient funds for the first year at Southern Adventist University (in addition to 
the international security deposit of US$3,000 required of all non-U. S. citizens 
except for citizens of Canada and Bermuda) 

6. The Advance Payment of US$2,500 (due before registration)

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.

a grade point average of 3.00 or above during the years of their secondary education. 

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

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

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

Student Life and Services 



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

CAMPUS SAFETY 

The Campus Safety department safeguards campus residents, property, and facilities. 
Its responsibilities include fire prevention and detection, traffic control, campus escort 
service, assistance with vehicle jump starts and lockouts, vehicle registration, card 
entry, arrangements for emergency after hours transportation, the maintenance of 
campus safety and order. Campus Safety is also responsible for the public address 
system, recording of programs and classroom presentations as per request. Campus 
Safety is located in room 108 of Lynn Wood Hall. 

CAREER SERVICES 

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

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

CHAPLAIN'S OFFICE 

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

Students who wish to seek assistance from a professional counselor should contact 
the Counseling Center. The Center offers a wide variety of resources to assist students 
adjust to university life. Personal and career counseling, consultation, testing, and 
referral services are provided in a confidential caring environment.

professional schools. Contact the Counseling and Testing Center for test applications 
and test date information.

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

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 theMcKee Library (ph. 423-238-2574 or 423-23 8-2838). 
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 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 



18 Student Life and Services 



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 1 2 and above 
who are on school insurance. 

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

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

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 



•IP E AND SERVICES 



19 



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 club s — Sigma Theta 
Chi (women), Upsilon Delta Phi (men), Black Christian Union, Christian Veterans 
Association and the Latin American Club, and special interest or hobby clubs. 

STANDARDS OF CONDUCT 

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

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

Each student is expected to become acquainted with the standards of conduct 
published in the Southern Adventist University Student Handbook. The handbook 



20 Student Life and Services 



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. 

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

Education and Psychology to include teacher education courses as a part of their 
program in order to qualify for denominational and state certification.

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 
opportu nity 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. S tudents 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 thejob 
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 
3 1 and at most 62 semester hours (exceptions may be granted under special conditions) with 
a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher. 

To continue as Southern Scholars, students must complete a minimum of twelve credits 
each semester and thirty-one credits each calendar year. They must also enroll in appropriate 
honors sequence courses, receive a B (3.00) average or higher in the honors sequence 
courses and maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3 .50. All honors students are expected 
to graduate within a four-year period unless extenuating circumstances justify an extension 
by the honors committee. 

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

After completing one year in the honors program, Southern Scholars may receive a 
waiver for the cost of auditing one class each semester that they remain in the program. Once 
having earned junior status and having finished one year in the program, Southern Scholars 
will receive a tuition refund equivalent to one three-hour class for four semesters if they are 
enrolled full-time. The "per hour" rate for a 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 282.

PREPROFESSIONAL CURRICULA 

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

Dentistry Osteopathic Medicine 

Law Pharmacy 

Medicine Veterinary Medicine 

Detailed requirements for non-degree 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 in 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 co urses necessary to meet their obj ectives. 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. 



38 Academic Po 



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 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. 

Withdrawal Procedure for Students Called to Active Military Duty. Southern 
Adventist University community recognizes the sacrifices that those in the armed forces 
make while serving our country. We are proud of these individuals and have, therefore, 
adopted the following policy to deal with currently enrolled Southern Adventist 
University students who are called to active military duty. 

1. Upon presentation of official military orders, the student will be automatically 
withdrawn from all of his/her courses for the given semester and a grade of "W" 
with notice of reason for withdrawal will be recorded on his/her academic record. 

2. In addition, the student is eligible for a full-tuition refund or can choose to have 
the monies held on account to be used at a later date. 

3. In the case of a resident student, room and board charges will be prorated based 
on the period in the semester when the student is required to leave; and the 
remaining charges will be refunded or held on account based on the student's 
request. 

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 



LCADEMIC O LIC IES 



39 



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 

16 hours 16 hours 

14 hours 20 hours 

12 hours 26 hours 

10 hours 32 hours 

8 hours 38 hours 

ACADEMIC ADVISEMENT 

Southern Adventist University is committed to assist every student in the area of 
academic advisement. 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 within the first two weeks 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 



40 Academic Po 



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

AU Audit; no credit 

I Incomplete; is not calculated in the GPA 

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

P Pass; is not calculated in the GPA 

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 before the final grades are submitted. The 
decision will be final. Nursing Practicum, NRSG 191 and American Humanics 
Management Institute, PREL 370 are also Pass/Fail classes. 

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: 

A 4.00 grade points per hour C 2.00 grade points per hour 

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

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

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

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

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

WF 0.00 grade points per hour 
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, 



LCADEMIC O LIC IES 



41 



photograph, address, e-mail address, telephone listing, birthplace and date, majorfields 
of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, dates of attendance, 
degrees and awards received, and the most recent previous educational agency or 
institution attended, may be released by the institution without consent of the student 
unless the student has asked SAU to withhold such information. 

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

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

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

ACADEMIC HONESTY 

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

Faculty Responsibilities: 

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

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

Student Responsibilities: 

1. Students assume responsibility to avoid plagiarism by learning the proper procedures 
foracknowledging borrowed wording, information, orideas. 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. 



42 Academic Po 



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

ACADEMIC PROBATION AND DISMISSAL 

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

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

2. Entering freshmen whose high school GPA is below 2.00 or if their composite 
ACT score is less than 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 and are 
required to enroll in "Power Tools". 

Students on academic probation are allowed to remain in school but must 
demonstrate progressive improvement to meet graduation requirements. 

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 

- 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 



LCADEMIC O LIC IES 



43 



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 290, "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 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 otherthan 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. 



44 Academic Po 



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 becauseof 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 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, seethe 
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. 

Southern recognizes the International Baccalaureate as nontraditional credit and will 
record up to 12 hours of credit of courses taken on the Highest level (HL). 

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. CLEP exam credit for history will only be accepted for three of the 
six hours required for a bachelor's level degree. No course may be challenged as part 
of the last thirty hours of any degree. Grades are recorded for departmental challenge 
examinations and scaled scores are recorded for nationally formed examinations. 
Permission to take a challenge examination while in residence must be obtained from 
both the department chair or school dean and the Vice President for Academic 
Administration. A challenge test may not be taken if the student has audited the class. 

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

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

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

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

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

Griggs University, a department of Home Study International, Silver Spring, MD, 
is the officially recognized correspondence school. Southern Adventist University 
recommends Home Study International for those students needing correspondence 



46 Academic Po 



credit and accepts all such credits when the study program is approved by the University 
priorto 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 100 clock hours per one credit hour. 

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

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

TRANSIENT STUDENT 

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

To receive transient status, a student must: 

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

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

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

EXTENSION CLASSES 

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

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 ($50x3). 

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 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 303. 

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-l), (W) 3 hours 

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

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

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

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

Designation in brackets following course titles, [e.g., MATH 103. Survey of 
Mathematics (A-2) ] 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].

Chair: Stephen A. Nyirady 

Faculty: Joyce Azevedo, David Ekkens, Ann Foster, Safawo Gullo, Joel Ongaro, 

Keith Snyder 
Program Adviser: Brenda Janzen 
Adjunct Faculty: Roger Hall 
Medical Technology: Luis Guarda, Marcia Kilsby, Albert McMullen, R. A. Ramkissoon, 

Patricia Rogers, Richard Show, Clifford Sutherland 

The Allied Health Professions are rapidly growing areas of specialization within the 
health care industry. Job openings are plentiful and pay scales are comparable to other 
professionals in health care. The department offers aB.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 (C AHEA) 
of the American Medical Association. The hospital programs affiliated with Southern 
Adventist University are Florida Hospital Medical Center and Andrews University. 
Internship in other C AHEA-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 (N A ACLS). Certified laboratory professionals 
work in hospitals, clinics, physicians' offices, public health agencies, private 
laboratories, pharmaceutical firms, and research institutions. 



He a l t h 53 



LLLIED XlE A L T 



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

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 Allied Health 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 S outhern Adventist University with an Associate 
Degree in Allied Health must meet the A.S. degree general education requirements of 
S AU 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).

PRE-DENTAL HYGIENE 

Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

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

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 27-31.

PRE-PHYSICAL THERAPY 

Adviser: Brenda Janzen 

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

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. Pre-requisite course 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. 

SDA programs offering the Physician Assistant degree are: 

► Kettering College of Medical Arts — www.kema.edu 

► Loma Linda University — www.llu.edu 

► Union College — www.ucollege.edu/pa 

Students may obtain information on these programs by contacting the schools directly, or 
from the Southern Adventist University pre- PA adviser. A complete list of PA programs can 
be found on the American Academy of Physician Assistants website at www.aapa.org. 
Southern Adventist University can structure a course of study to meet the requirements of 
any clinical program to which a student wishes to apply. Students are advised to begin early 
in their academic studies to gather information on prospective PA schools and the pre- 
requisite course work required.

PRE-RESPIRATORY 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

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 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.

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 thebalanced 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 (seepage 
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 274). 



66 Biology 



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: Loren Barnhurst, 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, and the drugs that 
are an integral part of medicine. A major in chemistry can be your key to a rewarding 
and challenging career in a wide variety of areas such as basic sciences or industrial 
research, pharmacology, toxicology, chemical engineering, forensic chemistry, 
chemistry education, or medical and paramedical careers. There are also many business 
applications such as pharmaceutical and chemical sales, patent research and patent law, 
marketing, and consulting. 

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 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 lh percentile on these exams 
and achieve a grade of C or above in the core chemistry courses. Students who score 
below the 40" percentile but have 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.

It is strongly recommended that students work towards certification in a second area of 
study such as mathematics or another science area. See the School of Education and 
Psychology for listing of professional requirements (33 hours, listed on page 113) and 
general education requirements (44-47 hours). 

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 AD MIS SION 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).

School of Computing 



Dean: Jared Bruckner 

Faculty: John Beckett, Rick Halterman, Timothy D. Korson, D. Willard Munger, 
Eduardo Urbina 

MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of S outhern Adventist University' s S chool 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 200 1 . 

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



96 School or Co 



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 
IS '97, the curriculum developed by ACM, AIS, and AFTP. 

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 computing students 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 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. 

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 

The School of Computing coordinates an internship program that 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. 



School of L^o m p u t in c 



97 



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. 

NETWORK USAGE POLICY 
AT SOUTHERN ADVENTIST UNIVERSITY 

Students must comply with the Network Usage Policy. See http://is.southern.edu/ 
internet/policy.html A hard copy of the policy is available from the ID Card Desk.

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.

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 



Ed u cation and Psychology 111 



required for initial admission to the program. Teacher candidates are expected 
to maintain consistent personal representation of the standards and objectives of 
Southern Adventist University and the teacher education program. 
C. Authorization to do Student Teaching 

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

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 

4. Evidence of good physical and mental health 

5. Adherence to standards and objectives of Southern Adventist 
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. Completion of a student teaching interview 

9. Formal presentation of Professional Development Portfolio 

10. Signed felony statement in file 

1 1 . Approval of the Education and Psychology faculty 

12. 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 adviseras 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 43). 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 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 completion of an approved 
teacher education program. Passing scores on the following PRAXIS II 
Examinations: (1) Principles of Learning and Teaching, and (2) appropriate 
specialty area(s) must be obtained. 

B. Basic Certificate (SDA denominational) 

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

REQUIREMENTS FOR CERTIFICATION 

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

A. General Education: 

This component represents that portion of the total teacher education 
program designed to foster the development of those competencies that are 
basic to all life's responsibilities and provide intellectual foundation in the 
liberal arts. Students pursuing a teacher education curriculum must work 
closely with their advisers for guidance in the selection of general education 
courses that are appropriate to their individual needs. Relevant courses are 
listed in this catalog under the seven main areas of the general education 
requirements, pages 27-31. 

B. Professional Education: 

Elementary : The courses for the two elementary programs are included 
with the degree requirements listed on pages 115-116 of this catalog. 

Middle: The courses for the two middle school programs are included with 
degree requirements listed on pages 117-118 of this catalog. 

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

EDUC 127 Growth Years 2 hours 

EDUC 136 Introduction to Middle & Secondary Education 2 hours 

EDUC 217 Psychological Foundations of Education 2 hours 

EDUC 240 Education for Exceptional Children and Youth 2 hours 

EDUC 260 Technology in Education 3 hours

EDUC 438 Curriculum and Content Methods, Grades 7-12 1 hour 

EDUC 468 Enhanced Student Teaching 7-12 or 

EDUC 469 Enhanced Student Teaching K-12 12 hours 

TOTAL HOURS 33 hours 

C. Major Studies: 

Major studies requirements: Preparation for teaching in the elementary 
school requires a B.A. in Psychology leading to licensure K-8, B.A. in 
Language Arts leading to licensure K-8; preparation for teaching in the middle 
school requires a B.S. in Math and Science leading to licensure 5-8, ora B.S. 
in Outdoor Education leading to licensure 5-8. See program descriptions on 
pages 115-118 of this catalog. 

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

D C A T 1 N AND PSYCHOLOGY 



Biology *Modern Languages 

Chemistry (French and Spanish) 

Education & Psychology Music 

English Physical Education & Health 

History Physics 

Mathematics Religion 

^Pending state approval 

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

D. Miscellaneous Information Relative to Teacher Training: 

1. Because of time commitments during the student teaching experience, it is 
expected that any student entering student teaching will have completed all 
other courses. 

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

3. For SDA Certification a major is not always required for additional 
endorsements; however, a minor may be acceptable in some disciplines as 
a second field endorsement area. 

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

5. NOTE: The Teacher Education Program at Southern Adventist 
University is constantly being refined to meet any and all North 
American Division, NC ATE, 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, NC ATE, or the State of Tennessee, 
even though such changes may not be listed in the Teacher Education 
programs in the particular catalog under which the student entered, 
and students should stay in contact with the School of Education and 
Psychology to be aware of any changes that may affect them.

ASSESSMENT OF EDUCATION MAJORS 

Final assessment of senior Education majors takes place during their full semester

performance in both verbal and written feedback. Senior assessment consists of two 
phases. 

Phase One, Formative Evaluation, consists of ongoing monitoring and feedback. 
The cooperating teacher conducts informal conferences as well as a one-hour weekly 
formal conference providing anecdotal records. A formative evaluation is completed 
by the University supervisor and the cooperating teacher at midpoint of each placement. 

Phase Two, Summative Evaluation, is completed by both the cooperating teacher 
and the University supervisor. Performance assessments used are the Student Teaching 
Summative Evaluation and the Student Teaching Portfolio. 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. 
A capstone interview is conducted with all student teaching candidates. 

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

Graduate follow-up is carried out through the Program Effectiveness Assessment 
completed by the first-year and third- year teachers. Feedback for the Teacher Education 
Program is solicited from administrators of school systems using the Program 
Effectiveness Assessment.

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.

♦Engineering students are expected to have taken a year-long precalculus course (beyond Algebra II) 
in high school. Precalculus Algebra (MATH 120) is taught during the SAU August summer session. 

The total number of hours for the A.S. degree in engineering studies is 64. Students 
who plan to continue their education at an engineering school other than Walla Walla 
College should take that school's catalog to the engineering adviser for guidance in 
selecting general education courses.

Adjunct Faculty: Penny Kennedy, Dennis Negron, Jodi Ruf 

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 27-31). 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 a requirement for graduation and 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; the EMFT is administered by the Counseling Center. 
Majors are informed about the purpose and nature of these assessment activities when 
they enter the English program.

Students planning to obtain educational certification will need to include the required 
professional education courses and additional general education requirements in their 
program as outlined in the Education and Psychology section of this catalog. Students 
preparing for secondary teacher certification must also take ENGL 430. English majors who 
minor in journalism or public relations are eligible for internships through the School of 
Journalism and Communication. 

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 ADMISSIONPROCEDURES in the Schoolof 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).

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

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

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

Minor — Political 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

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. 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 ADMIS S ION PROCED URES 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). 



History 143

time equal to that expected in a regular classroom setting. Preparatory meetings and 
assigned reading are included in this computation. Course credit is offered under HIST 
295/495 Directed Study in History. Cost of the tours includes charge for academic 
credit. 

History as general education: Freshman and sophomore students earning general

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 1 8 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. 



148 Interdisciplinary 



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. 

Students who receive 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.

AND 1^0 M M UN IC A TIO N 



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. 

The dual major of Public Relations and Business Administration is a unique degree 
program. Because it contains the core classes from both majors, it equips students with 
public relations and business skills and makes graduates especially competitive in the 
corporate world. 

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 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. 

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 areamass media, students injournalism, broadcasting, and public relations 
have many opportunities to meet and work with professionals in television and radio 
news, in public relations, advertising, and on daily and weekly newspapers. 

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

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

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

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

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

S chool files for each student majoring in the S chool 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 

Adjunct Faculty: Al Morford 

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.

Actuaries deal with the mathematics, legal, and business aspects of risks such as 
those which arise in insurance, annuity, and pension plans. One must pass the first six 
Society of Actuaries examinations to become an Associate of the Society of Actuaries 
and an additional two examinations to become a Fellow. The Actuarial Studies major 
prepares a student for the first of these examinations. Preparation for the remainder 
usually comes from on-the-job experience and independent study.

Modern La n g u a g e s 



Chair: Carlos H. Parra 

Faculty: William Van Grit 

Adjunct Faculty: Darwin Ayscue, Gwendolyn Smith 

The Modern Languages Department at Southern Adventist University combines 
language study with experience abroad and academic courses. Southern offers 
interdisciplinary degrees in French, French Teaching, International Studies, Spanish, 
and Spanish Teaching. The International Studies degree will enhance students' ability 
to live and work in an international setting. Students discover French, German, and 
Spanish not only as living languages but also as reflections of many cultures. 

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 S outhern 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 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 



Modern La n g i a c e s 173 



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. 

SPECIAL OPPORTUNITIES 

The department sponsors language programs abroad for students who desire to 
participate in an intensive language-learning experience. For details, contact Adventist 
Colleges Abroad (ACA). 

FOREIGN STUDY 

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

Students can also contact ACA at: http://nadadventist.org/aca/ 
The language schools operated by the following institutions are affiliates of ACA:

advanced language proficiency are encouraged to take the "Challenge Examination" 
offered by the department. Otherwise, students with no background in a language must 
begin at the 101 level. 

Departmental Majors. The Modern Languages Department offers language courses 
to satisfy the B.A. language requirement. A major in International Studies with 
emphasis in Spanish, French, or German is offered. Also, majors in French, Spanish, 
and French or Spanish Teaching* are also offered.

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. 
Acceptance to the University, however, does not guarantee admission to the School of 
Music as a music major. The prospective music major is required to take written and 
aural entrance examinations in music theory and a performance examination in the 
applied area. To obtain Freshman Standing as a music major, the student must qualify 
for MUCT 111, Music Theory I and MUPF 1 89, Concentration. Continuation in the 
music program is contingent upon satisfactory progress toward a degree measured by 
regular assessment checkpoints, described in the following pages. 

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. 



184 School of Mi 



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, SALT 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 14 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 
lesson=one semester hour credit; one hour lesson=two semester hours 
credit.) 

2. Practiced a minimum of four hours 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. Performed on at least one Music Major General Recital during the 
semester. Organ students may meet this requirement through a service 
performance (e.g. convocation, evensong, worship service). 

5. 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 14 lessons for the semester. (One-half hour 
lesson=one semester hour credit; one hour lesson=two semester hours 
credit.) 

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



School of Mi ! sic 185 



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. APPLICATION TO MUSIC MAJOR TRACK 

Music majors with Freshman Standing must apply to the Music Faculty for acceptance 
to a specific track upon completion of the freshman year. The following racks are 
available: B.Mus. Music Education; B.S. Music/General; B.S. Theory and Literature; B.S. 
Performance. The faculty's decision is based upon the following: 

a. Satisfactory progress in academic coursework (minimum of 2.5 grade point average 
in MUCT and MUHL courses). 

b. Satisfactory progress in performance area (based on jury evaluations). 

c. Other criteria specific to Music Education and Performance tracks. 

3. SOPHOMORE EVALUATION AND 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. Demonstration of keyboard proficiency. 

d. Completion of MUCT 211-212,221-222. 

e. Completion of at least four hours of MUPF 189: Concentration. 

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. 

4. 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. Junior 
Standing as a music major is prerequisite to scheduling the faculty audition of the senior 
recital. 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. 

5 . S ENIOR ASSESS MENT EXAMINATION 

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

BACHELOR OF MUSIC CURRICULUM 

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

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 (BS) in nursing with the option to exit at the associate degree (AS) 
level. Students entering the nursing program are encouraged to declare the BS degree 
when they first apply to the SON. Registered nurses with an AS degree from a nursing 
program accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission 
(NLNAC) may progress into baccalaureate level nursing or accelerated Registered 
Nurse (RN) to Master of Science (MSN) program. Diploma and AS 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 degree 
in nursing which may be completed in four semesters, plus summer courses. Upon 
completion of the AS degree requirements, the student is eligible to take National 
Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN). 

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

The accelerated RN to MSN program allows the RN to combine baccalaureate and 
masters level course work in a condensed program of five to six full-time semesters. 
Accelerated program emphases include Adult and Family Nurse Practitioner, Nurse 
Educator, and a dual degree MSN/MBA with a focus on Health Care Administration 
(see SAU Graduate Catalog for complete program information). 

A limited number of students are accepted into each program 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 nursing courses will accept personal responsibility for their 
learning and professional behavior. Each student contracts to abide by policies as stated 
in the SON Student Handbook. 

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

A laboratory fee is assessed per clinical class to help offset expenses which are not 
covered by regular tuition (see Fees and Charges under the Financial Policies section 
of the catalog). 



198 School of No 



The Tennessee Board of Nursing (TBN) 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 TBN. 

ASSESSMENT 

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

Faculty: Chris Hansen, Henry Kuhlman 

Professor of International Research in Physics: Ray Hefferlin 

Adjunct Faculty: Jim Engel 

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. andB.A. degrees in physics, B.S. in biophysics, 
and A.S. in Engineering Studies (see pagel30). 

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

ASSESSMENT 

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

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

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

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

EFFECTIVENESS 

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

Faculty Assessment 

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 16PF 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 



224 School of Re 



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 time, after being admitted to the program, trainees give evidence of failing to 
maintain commitment to the criteria or preparation for ministry, they forfeit their 
standing as trainees and the faculty's recognition in their senior year as Ministerial 
Candidates. Acceptance into the ministerial program as a trainee and a candidate is 
required for the completion of the major in theology. Students not accepted into the 
program may choose to complete a major in Religious Studies.

Ministerial Externship 

The School of Religion requires field education of Theology majors. The 
Ministerial Externship Program is designed to enhance 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 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, 361 and 362 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 ADMIS SION PROCEDURES in the S chool 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 113 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. 



228 School of Re 



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 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 grade 
point average (GPA) of 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, 25 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 GPA 
of 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 as well as the A.A. in 
Religion candidates for graduation must have a GPA of 2.00 overall and a 2.25 in their 
major as outlined in the University catalog. Archaeology graduation candidates must 
have a cumulative GPA of 2.75 and 2.75 in their major. Where exit examinations are 
required, the candidate must pass with a score of 75 percent or above prior to 
graduation.

Chair: Rene Drumm 

Faculty: Janene Dunston, Valerie L. Radu (Director, Social Work Program), 

Stanley Stevenson 
Adjunct Faculty: Robert Coombs, Jacinta Naylor, Lucilla Nash, Terrie Ruff 
Website: swfs.southern.edu 

MISSION STATEMENT AND OBJECTIVES

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.

in Family Studies. A grade of a C or better is required in all core social work (SOCW) 
classes. Social work majors must maintain an overall GPA of 2.50 or higher to be 
admitted into the program and to remain in the program. 

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

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.

SOCIAL WORK PROGRAM MISSION STATEMENT 

The mission of the Bachelor of Social Work program is to provide a quality 
generalist baccalaureate education based upon a Christian service value system. The 
graduates of this program are expected to be able to function in entry level positions 
working with individuals, families, small groups, organizations, communities and with 
diverse peoples. The social work practice skills and theoretical orientations used by 
these professional social workers are informed and guided by evidence-based research 
findings. These professional social workers will demonstrate this professionalized 
value system by exemplifying a dedication to the promotion of social and economic 
justice through an understanding of and a commitment to social change for the benefit 
of the poor, the disenfranchised, and other populations-at-risk. 

BACHELOR OF SCIENCE IN SOCIAL WORK 

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. 

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, SOCW 212: Social Welfare as an Institution, and 
SOCW 213: Interviewing Skills with a grade of C or higher. 

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



, Wo R K AND F.4 M I L Y StUDIES 243 



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

7. The student is to make arrangements with the University Counseling and 
Testing Center to take the Taylor- Johnson Temperament Analysis Test. 

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

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

FIELD PRACTICUM ADMISSION 

In the winter semester of the junior year, following the completion of most required 
pre-requisite courses, students begin the application process for the social work field 
practicum, which is a requirement for graduation with a BSW degree. All students 
entering the field practicum must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher in order to be considered 
academically eligible for the field practicum. Since the primary purpose of social work 
education is to prepare students for entry-level social work positions, quality field 
placements are essential. The placements are designed to provide students with a 
chance to put into practice the theories and skills they have learned in the classroom. 

All students applying to the Field Practicum must have completed these courses or 
have these courses completed by the end of the semester in which they apply. 

These courses are: 

► SOCW 214, Human Behavior/Biological Foundations 

► SOCW 311, Human Behavior and the Social Environment I 

► SOCW 3 12, Human Behavior and the Social Environment II 

► SOCW 314, Social Work Practice I 

► SOCW 315, Social Work Practice II 

► SOCW 318, Social Work Practice Skills Lab 

TRANSFER STUDENTS 

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

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

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

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 group s; 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 Social Work Knowledge and Competency Skills Exam in the winter 
semester of the senior year. 

2. Successfully complete both the oral and written sections of the Senior Exit 
Exam which includes presentation of a piece of original research designed in 
the social work research class and completed during the field practicum. This 
research project is part of the Field Practicum. Also included is the 
presentation of the completed Policy/Case Study Project which is done during 
the Field Practicum. 

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 a written knowledge and competency skills 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.

School of 

Visual Art and Design 



Dean: Wayne Hazen 

Faculty: Aaron Adams, Randall Craven, Brian Dunne, David George, Zachary Gray, 

Ed Guthero, Frank Mirande, Maria Roybal-Hazen, Dean Scott, John Williams 
Adjunct Faculty: Hendel Butoy, John Cline, Chris Dicicco, Kevin Lee, 

Douglas Lively 

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

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

One of the goals of the S chool of Visual Art and De sign 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 degree of developed skills 
necessary to produce art at a competitive level in preparation for graduate school and 
the industry, we strongly recommend that students achieve a grade of 85% before going 
on to the next class in a sequence.

Major — B.A. Art-Therapy Emphasis (31 Hours) 

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 elabo ration of a portfo lio 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.

ANESTHESIA (CRNA) 

Adviser: L. Phil Hunt 

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

DENTISTRY 

Adviser: Stephen A. Nyirady 

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

Application to dental school should be made one year previous to the one for which 
admission is desired. Successful applicants should have a minimum GPA of 3.00 in 
both science and non-science courses as well as satisfactory performance on the Dental 
Admissions Test. Information regarding the Dental Admission Testing Program may 
be obtained from the American Dental Association, 211 East Chicago Avenue, 
Chicago, IL 69611 or on the web (http://ada.org/prof/ed/testing/dat.asp). 

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

BIOL 151-152 8 hours 

CHEM 151-152, 311-312 16 hours 

ENGL 101-102 6 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 hours

LAW 

Adviser: Ben McArthur 

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

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

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

1. ECON 224 Principles of Economics 3 hours 

2. PLSC 254 American Government 3 hours 

3. PLSC 471 Classics of Western Thought I OR 

PLSC 472 Classics of Western Thought II 3 hours 

4. ENGL 313 Expository Writing 3 hours 

Plus six hours of electives selected from the following courses: 

5. ACCT221 Principles of Accounting 

6. ECON 225 Principles of Economics 

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

8. BUAD 339 Business Law

Such coops would include work with one of the following: a 
lawyer, a legal clinic, a public defender's office, a state or U.S. 
attorney's office. 

Information about preparation for law school may be obtained from the Section of 
Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar, American Bar Association, 1 155 East 60th

Test, see the pre-law adviser. 

MEDICINE 

Advisers: Joyce Azevedo, Ann Foster, Stephen A. Nyirady, Joel Ongaro, 
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 aBachelor's Degree prior to entrance into medical school. 
Exceptional students may be eligible to apply after completion of a minimum of 85 
semester hours. Applicants for admission to the Loma Linda University School of 
Medicine should maintain a grade point average of at least 3.50 in both science and 
non-science courses. The following courses without an asterisk must be included in the 
applicant's academic program. Medical schools generally do not accept CLEP credits 



Non-De c r e e Prepjofessional Programs 275 



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

MATH 120, 121, 181* 3 hours 

PHYS 211-212, 213-214 8 hours 

Religion 12 hours 

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

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

The applicant is required to have taken the new Medical College Admission Test 
(MCAT) prior to consideration by the admissions committee. This exam is administered 
twice a year — in August and April. Application for the exam is made through the 
Counseling and Testing Center one 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. 

American Medical College Application Service 
1176 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. 
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 us ually require a letter of recommendation from the p re-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.

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).

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

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:

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 Admission 
Test (VC AT) 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 http://www.aavmc.org.

PLEASE TAKE NOTE 

Applications for admission and financial aid will be awarded 
scholarships on a first-come, first-served basis until SAU 
scholarship funds are depleted. So plan ahead and submit 
your applications as early as possible! 

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

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

Scholarships provided by Southern Adventist University, 
or the combination of tuition assistance from SDA institu- 
tions and scholarships provided by Southern Adventist 
University, shall not exceed the actual charges of tuition (for 
up to 16 hours), general fees, residential rent (up to the 
standard residence hall rent or its equivalent in other 
campus housing), and books/supplies charged at the Campus 
Shop up to a maximum of $450 per semester. Tuition 
assistance, and federal, state, and private scholarships 
shall be applied toward a student's account first, before 
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 
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 28 to August 22. To find out 
more, call Admissions at 1.800.SOUTHERN.

Gra nts 

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. 

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 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 for which s/he is eligible. 



Finances 285 

The PLUS loan 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 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.) 
! $10,500 a year if they have completed at least 55 credithours 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.) 



286 Finances 



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 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 



Finances 287 

to married student couples. A ten percent rebate may be given when three or more 
students from the same immediate family are enrolled at S AU 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 an enrollment adviser for the 
application form. The provisions that apply are: 

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

2. Applicants must have a clear financial S AU 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-termcare 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

FINANCIAL AID APPLICATION PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Applications 

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

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 in January of 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. 



Finances 289 

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

FINANCIAL AID AWARD AND DISBURSEMENT PROCEDURES 

Financial Aid Award Procedures 

A Financial Aid Award Letter will be sent to each 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 S AU. 
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 
high school diploma or GED and an acceptable ACT/SAT score on file in the Records 
and Advisement Office. S/he must 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 maybe fined $10,000, sent to prison, or both. 



290 Finances 



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 

Degree Program Degree Max. Time to Receive Financial Aid 

General baccalaureate 186 attempted hours 

General associate 96 attempted hours 

Art baccalaureate 190 attempted hours 

Music baccalaureate 198 attempted hours 

Nursing associate 103 attempted hours 

Second baccalaureate 231 attempted hours 

Second associate 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. Enrollment with 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 academ ic 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. 



Finances 291 

Students may enroll for the summer sessions or subsequent terms at S AU 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 rV 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 S AU refund policy for students withdrawing from classes is outlined on pages 
299-300. 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 andunderthe 
refund policy receives a refund of these charges, any credit will be used to reimburse 
financial aid programs first, and any remaining credit will be refunded to the student. 

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

1. Unsubsidized Federal Stafford loans 

2. Subsidized Federal Stafford loans 

3. Federal Perkins loans 

4. Parent Federal (PLUS) loans 

5. Federal Pell Grant program 

6. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant program 

7. Other Title IV aid programs 



292 Finances 



Financial Aid Repayment Policy 

There are specific repayment policies for students who withdraw completely from 

5 AU 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 1-20 or other legal document before 
employment can be arranged. 

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



Finances 293 

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 (FTC A) 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. 

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. 

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 financialplanning. 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 



294 Finances 



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 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). 

Students taking less than six credit hours must pay the full amount in advance or pay 
the required $2,500 advance payment. No discount is available for students who fall 
in this category. 



Finances 295

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 $170 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 student will be 
allowed to charge to their student account up to a maximum amount for books, 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 $400 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 $50 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 14 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 Student Finance Office before a U.S. 
Immigration Form 1-20 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: 

1. The student has adequate US insurance coverage equal to or better than the 
University insurance plan. 

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

3. The student does not live in University-owned housing and is taking less than 
six semester hours of class work during the fall and 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 $2,280 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 $3,420. 
Residence hall students living in the Southern Village apartments are charged $2,480 
for the school year. If sufficient rooms are available, s/he requires approval from the 



298 Finances 



Student Finance Office. It is the student's responsibility to have arranged for a 
roommate unless specific arrangements have been made to room alone. No pets, 
firearms, or weapons are allowed in the residence hall. 

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

Residence Hall Deposit and 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 
$294 to $635 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 to Southern Adventist 
University. The deposit is in addition to any other payment. 

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



299 



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 S AU 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:

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 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 291. 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 $25 returned check fee will be assessed to the student's account. This also 
forfeits the privilege of paying by check. 

Discount Policy 

Year in Advance/Guaranteed Tuition Plan — S AU 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 — SALT 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: 

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

2. The tuition rate in effect at the time of the first contract (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 



301 



Missionaries, ACA Students, 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 following years, the tuition rate will remain the same 
as year one, and the appropriate discount will be given on general fee, room, 
board, and books only. 

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

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

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

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

10. If the payment contract is broken for any of the above reasons, or the student 
withdraws during the school year, the student 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 2003-2004 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. (S ee 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. 



302 Finances 



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 S AU, it will be written on the 
check by an S AU employee for posting purposes. 

BILLING PROCEDURES 

Monthly Statements 

Statements will show all monthly/semester charges and credits and will be mailed 
to students on or before the 1 3 ,h of each month. The minimum payment is due the 28" 
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'' and the payment is made by 
cash or check, a one percent discount may be subtracted from the payment. Students 
who do not pay by the 28" will be assessed a $25 late 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. Upo n 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 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. 



303 



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 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 the credit bureau. 

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 the credit bureau. 

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 S AU Student Finance Office to contactthe 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. 

Any student that has an amount that has been written off due to an uncollectible 
account, settlement, lost account, or bankruptcy, must pay the written off amount prior 
to enrolling in any class or being re-accepted as a student. 

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 the financial sponsor in no way 
changes the underlying financial obligation of the student to pay his or her student 
account.
