Edison State College Admissions 
Policy 

Edison State College affirms its policy of open admissions. All 
applicants for admissions are considered solely on the basis of their 
academic qualifications, without regard to their race, color, religion, 
sex, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital status and national 
origin. Edison State College reserves the right to deny admission to 
any applicant whose behavior is not in keeping with the best interests 
of Edison. 

Edison State assesses a non-refundable admissions application fee 
for all new students. The admissions application is not processed until 
the admissions application fee is received. The Office of the Registrar 
is responsible for administering Edison State's admissions policies and 
for providing information regarding the admissions process, including 
admissions requirements, residency requirements, student privacy 
rights and classification of students. 

Students may submit application for admission via our online 
system at www.Edison.edu/admissions or may print and mail an 
application with the application fee. 

After the admissions application has been processed, the Office 
of the Registrar notifies each applicant of his/her acceptance to Edison 
State and provides the applicant with assessment, advisement and 
registration information. Accepted applicants may begin their studies 
any term. For important dates, please see the College Calendar. 

NOTE: Florida law (F.S. 1003.43) provides that students 
graduating from a Florida public high school after August 1, 1987 
and applying for admission to an Associate in Arts degree program 
must meet specific general requirements for high school graduation. 
Graduates from private high schools and out-of-state public schools 
must have completed a curriculum that includes four years of English 
and three years each of mathematics, science, and social studies. 
However, in lieu of the English requirement, foreign students may 
use four years of instruction in their native language or language of 
instruction in the secondary school attended. 

A high school transcript bearing the high school graduation date 
or GED test scores is required before a student is allowed to register 
for classes. If an official high school transcript is not received by the 
College by the midpoint of the first term of enrollment a hold will be 
placed on the student's record and they will not be allowed to register 
for a subsequent term. Students who have earned a CPT-Eligible 
Certificate of Completion in Florida may enroll at ESC, but are not 
eligible for Financial Aid or some programs requiring special training.

of the student (copy of court papers required). 

To qualify as a resident for tuition purposes, you must be a U.S. 
citizen, legal Permanent Resident, or hold a visa status approved by the 
Florida Legislature. Living on or attending school in Florida does not.

parents for support are presumed to be legal residents of the same state 
as their parents. 

A Florida resident for tuition purposes is a person who, or a 
dependent person whose parent or legal guardian, has established 
and maintained legal residence in Florida for at least 12 consecutive 
months immediately preceding their first enrollment at Edison State 
College. If the student was initially classified as a non-Florida resident 
for tuition purposes (for example: the student was previously enrolled 
in a Florida institution of higher education as a non-Florida resident 
and paid non-Florida resident tuition and fees; or, upon admission to 
Edison State College the student signed the residency affidavit stating 
they were not a Florida resident) the student, or a dependent student's 
parent or legal guardian, must have established and maintained legal 
residence in Florida for at least 12 consecutive months immediately 
preceding the proof of Florida residency deadline of the term for which 
reclassification to Florida resident for tuition purposes is sought.

readmit and will be required to submit new documentation to prove 
Florida residency.

Tuition Purposes only if that individual, or if that person is a dependent 
child, his or her parent presents clear and convincing documentation 
that supports permanent legal residency in Florida for a least 12 
consecutive months rather than temporary residency for the purpose of 
pursuing an education, such as documentation of full-time permanent 
employment for the prior 12 months or the purchase of a home in this 
state and residence therein for the prior 12 months while not enrolled 
in an institution of higher education. The burden of proof is on the 
student and/or the claimant to show both of the following:

documents that prove Florida residency: however, in all cases the 
claimant must have a Florida Driver's License or Identification Card. 
To satisfy item number 2 above, the student, or his or her parent 
if that student is a dependent child, certifies with their signature on the 
Residency Affidavit form that they meet at least one of the following 
criteria (additional evidence or documentation may be required for 
meeting the requirement of reclassification):

education institution during the previous 12 months (Full- 
time during the fall, spring and summer terms as defined as 
12 credits per term).

Florida prior to initial enrollment as confirmed on corporate 
or organizational letterhead. 

4. The claimant has an immediate relative (i.e. parent or child)

Policies Governing 
Financial Aid 

Standards of Academic Progress for 
Financial Aid Recipients 

Federal and state regulations require students to meet minimum 
standards in order to be eligible to receive financial aid funds. The 
minimum standards at Edison State College are applied uniformly to 
all financial aid programs administered by the College, except those 
programs whose eligibility requirements are restricted to institutional 
funds or outside donor restrictions. Some scholarship programs carry 
their own academic standards for renewal of eligibility. 

1. Students must meet the academic requirement of at least a 
2.0 cumulative GPA. 

2. Students must make progress toward their degree or 
certificate. Minimum progress toward a degree requires 
initial year financial aid applicants who have previously 
attended the College to have earned 67 percent of attempted 
credit hours at the College. 

3. Minimum progress toward a degree or certificate requires 
continuing financial aid recipients to earn 67 percent of 
credit hours attempted during the current academic year for 
renewal eligibility. 

4. Students must complete their educational objective within a 
given time frame: 

a. All AA and AS degree seeking students have a 
maximum of 90 attempted credit hours. Students in 
bachelor's degree programs have a maximum of 1X0 
attempted credits. 

b. All certificate degree seeking students are limited to no 
more than 150 percent of the published length of the 
program. 

All transfer credits will be included as attempted credit hours 
as well as all Edison State College attempted coursework regardless 
of whether the courses are applicable toward the student's degree 
program. 

Withdrawals from any course(s) will be counted in the total hours 
attempted and may result in failure to meet the standards of progress. 
Students must follow the official withdrawal procedures established 
by the College. Students may owe a refund to the federal program as 
a result of a withdrawal from a course. Students should contact the 



27 



Office of Student Financial Aid for information prior to withdrawing 
from a course. 

Funding by federal financial aidprograms forremedial coursework 
is limited to 30 credits. 

Reinstatement 

If a student is denied/suspended from financial aid assistance, 
the student must attend a semester without financial aid and earn 
a minimum of six (6) credits with a semester GPA of 2.0 or above. 
Students will be required to file an appeal after the term without aid is 
completed for reinstatement of eligibility. 

Review of Continued Eligibility 

Satisfactory progress is reviewed at the end of the student's 
academic year. Notification will be sent to students at the end of the 
Spring or Summer semester if their eligibility for financial aid has 
been terminated. 

Appeal 

Students may request an appeal by the Office of Student Financial 
Aid if financial aid funding has been terminated. The student must 
file a petition form with the Office of Financial Aid. On that form 
the student must state the circumstances that prevented satisfactory 
progress to occur and provide documentation of the circumstances. 
Once the review has been made the student will be notified of the 
result of the review. 

Class Attendance 

Financial aid recipients must attend all classes they are registered 
for to receive a financial aid award. Failure to demonstrate attendance 
in classes will result in a reduction or cancellation of financial aid 
funds. 

Transfer Student Evaluation 

Transfer students applying for financial aid must have at least a 
2.0 grade point average after transfer credits are evaluated to be eligible 
to receive financial aid funding. To qualify for aid in subsequent terms 
students must maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. 

All transfer credits will be included as attempted credit hours for 
standards of academic progress regardless of whether the courses are 
applicable toward the student's degree. 

Prior Baccalaureate Degree 

Students who have completed a baccalaureate or professional 
degree from an institution, regardless of whether the institution is 
an unaccredited or foreign school, are not eligible for Pell. FSAG or 
FSEOG funds. Whether the degree is accepted or recognized by Edison 
State College docs not change the student's eligibility status. 

Student Fees 

Student fees are payable by the date shown on the schedule receipt. 
Financial aid recipients may have their fees covered by approved financial 
aid funds. The student's financial aid award process must be finalized to 
have tuition covered by this process. Financial aid recipients that receive 
funds that exceed the charges to their student account will receive a refund. 
The Finance Office will notify students of the refund options through debit 
or check. 



Repayment of Title IV Funds 

Recipients of federal financial aid funds that withdraw from 
classes prior to completion of 60 percent of the term will be required 
to repay a portion of funds received as defined by federal regulations. 
The Office of Student Financial Aid distributes specific information 
with financial aid awards. 



Procedure for Cancellation or 
Withdrawal of Classes for Financial Aid 
Recipients 

Students who withdraw or have a class cancelled after the regular 
registration period (sec College Calendar for the last date to drop a 
class with a refund) should consult the Office of Student Financial 
Aid as they may incur a financial liability. Students who receive an 
administrative refund for classes will have their financial aid adjusted 
or cancelled and will be required to pay all funds received that arc 
determined to be owed back to the federal, state, or private donor that 
provided the funds. All students who withdraw or drop classes are 
required to do so as directed by the Office of the Registrar. Students 
are not automatically withdrawn from classes. 

Students wishing to change their course registration by adding or 
dropping a course must follow registration procedures. Financial aid 
recipients are responsible for completing the change in registration for 
payment to be made by a financial aid program.

Veteran Transfer Students 

A transfer student must have a rranscript(s) from the previous 
collegers) forwarded to Fdison State College before transferring. 
The Veterans Administration (VA) must be notified of any eredits 
aeeepted by the College. The student's certification for benefits will 
not be processed by the VA office until the transcript! s) is received and 
evaluated by Edison State. Failure to have the certification finalized 
will delay the veteran's benefit cheek. 

Approved VA Programs 

The student must be working toward an approved degree in order 
to receive VA benefits. Students should contact the College Counseling 
or Advising Centers to ensure that the classes they plan to take are 
required for the degree selected. This will avoid the possibility of 
overpayment for classes not required for the degree. A student will not 
be paid for a course repeated to earn a higher grade, unless the student 
received an "F" in the course, or a "D" when a "C" is required. 



Change of Status and Attendance 

Veterans who withdraw, drop or add a class should notify the 
Veterans Affairs Office immediately. Such a change could result in an 
incorrect payment from the VA. Withdrawals and grades of "W" are 
retroactive to the beginning of the term, and the VA does not pay for 
courses in which the student receives a grade of "W." 



Standards of Progress for Veteran 
Educational Benefit Recipients 

Veterans must maintain a "C" (2.0) grade point average to remain 
in good standing. If the veteran does not have a 2.0 after attempting 
12 credit hours, the student will be placed on academic warning. After 
attempting 24 credit hours, if the veteran still has less than a 2.0 GPA, 
the veteran's benefits will be terminated bv the VA. 



Deferment of Tuition 

Veterans and other eligible students may receive one deferment 
each academic year if there is a break (failure to return in a subsequent 
semester) in the VA benefits. Veteran deferments are processed by the 
financial aid office on each campus..

Custodians of Student Records 

Edison State College has designated the Registrar as the official 
custodian of general student records. The Director of Financial Aid 
has been designated as the official custodian of student financial aid 
records. The information contained in a student's record becomes 
the property of Edison State and is not released without the written 
permission of the student. 

Policies Governing Student

2. Student's local address and telephone number. 

3. Student's permanent address and telephone number. 

4. Current term hours enrolled. 

5. Major. 

6. Date(s) of enrollment. 

7. Degree(s) and honors earned and dates.

request to restrict the release of "Directory Information" as stated 
previously. To withhold information, a student must notify the Office 
of the Registrar in writing prior to the end of the add/drop period 
each semester. Status of disclosure at the last registration period is 
binding and all records arc noted: "Restricted Information, FERPA. 
No information is to be released without the written consent of the 
student." 

Edison State College has designated the National Student 
Clearinghouse and Higher One Inc. as agents of the college, authorized 
to release student information in the performance of their contracted 
duties. 



Notification of Access and Review of 
Student Records (Public Law 93-380 
Buckley Amendment) 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords 
students certain rights with respect to their education records. These 
rights are: 

1 . The right to inspect and review their education record within 
45 days of Edison State receiving a request for access. The 
student should submit to the District Registrar or other 
appropriate Edison State official a written request that 
identifies the record(s) the student wishes to inspect. The 
Edison State official arranges for access and notifies the 
student of the time and place where the student may inspect 
the records. In the case where a request is presented to an 
Edison State official who does not maintain the requested 
records, the Edison State official advises the student of the 
correct official to whom the request should be addressed. 

2. The right to request the amendment of their education 
records if the student believes the record is inaccurate or 
misleading. The student should submit to the Registrar or 
other appropriate Edison State official a written request 
clearly identifying the part of the record the student wants 
changed, and specifying why it is inaccurate or misleading. 
The Edison State official notifies the student if it is decided 
not to amend the record as requested by the student. The 
Edison State official advises the student of their right to a 
hearing regarding the request for amendment and provides 
additional information regarding the hearing procedures to 
the student. 

3. The right to request the non-disclosure of personally 
identifiable information contained in their education record, 
except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure 
without consent. Students should contact the Office of the 
Registrar for more information. One exception that permits 
disclosure without consent is the disclosure to school officials 
with legitimate educational interests. A school official is 
a person employed by Edison State in an administrative, 
supervisory, academic, research, or support staff position 
(including law enforcement unit personnel), a person or 
company with whom Edison State has contracted (such as an 
attorney, auditor, or collection agent), a person serving on the 
District Board of Trustees, or a student serving on an official 
committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or 
assisting another school official in performing their duties. 
A school official has legitimate educational interests if the 
official needs to review an education record to fulfill their 
professional responsibility. Upon request. Edison State 
discloses education records without consent to officials of 
school(s) to which the student seeks or intends to enroll. 

4. The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of 
Education concerning alleged failures by Edison State to 
comply with the requirements of FERPA.

Solomon Amendment 

Under ;i 1997 rule adopted by the United States Department of 
Defense, the College, if requested, must provide to the U.S. military 
the student's name, address, telephone number, date of birth, level of 
education, current major and degrees received. 

Notification of Social Security Number 
Collection and Usage 

In compliance with Florida Statute 119.071(5), Edison State 
College collects and uses student social security numbers (SSNs) only 
for the Following purposes in performance of the College's duties and 
responsibilities. To protect student identity, Edison State College will 
protect all social security numbers from unauthorized access, never 
release social security numbers to unauthorized parties, and assign 
each student employee a unique identification number (Banner 1D#). 
This unique ID number is used for all associated employment and 
educational purposes at Edison State. 

1 . Office of the Registrar 

Federal legislation relating to the Hope Tax Credit requires 
all post secondary institutions to report student SSNs to the 
Internal Revenue Service. This IRS requirement makes it 
necessary for colleges to collect the SSN of every student. A 
student may refuse to disclose his or her SSN to the College, 
but the IRS is then authorized to tine the student in the 
amount of $50.00. ( Taxpayer Relief Act of 1997 (Pub. L. 
No. 105-34, 111 Stat. 788). 

In addition to the federal reporting requirements, the public 
school system in Florida uses SSNs as a student identifier 
(Florida Statutes 1008.386: Florida Public Records. FS 
119.07l(5)(a)2.a.(II). In a seamless K-20 system, it is 
beneficial for post secondary institutions to have access to 
the same information for purposes of tracking and assisting 
students in the smooth transition from one education level to 
the next. All SSNs are protected by the Family Educational 
Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and are never released to 
unauthorized parties. 

2. Financial Aid Office 

The Office of Financial Aid requires students to submit 
their social security numbers on various forms in order to 
correctly identify applicants, match each applicant's financial 
aid record with the student record, and help coordinate state 
aid programs with federal and institutional aid programs. 
(Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. Sections 441- 
448. 483 and 484(p). 20 USC 1091 (p), 20 USC 1078-2(f): 
Code of Federal Regulations. 34 CFR 668.32(i) and 668.36; 
38 USC 3471). 

3. Human Resources Office/Payroll Office 

The SSN is used for legitimate employment business 
purposes in compliance with: 

a. The Application and Employment Packet: completing 
and processing the Federal 1-9 (Department of 
Homeland Security) 

b. Completing and processing payroll documents: Federal 
W4, W2 and W9 for 1099 reporting (Internal Revenue 
Service); Federal social security taxes (F1CA); 
processing and distributing Federal W2 (Internal 
Revenue Service); direct deposit files 

c. Completing and processing quarterly unemployment 



reports (FL Dept of Revenue) 

d. Completing and processing Florida Retirement 
Contribution reports (FL Dept of Revenue) 

e. Workers Comp Claims (FCCRMC and Department of

employment at Edison State College. 

4. Library 

Student, faculty, and staff social security numbers may 
be used in the libraries' patron database for online login 
authentication, patron verification and the elimination 
of duplicate records. (Florida Public Records, FS 
119.071(5)(a)6.b). 

5. Upward Bound Program 

The Upward Bound Program is a youth outreach 
(intervention) project funded by a discretionary grant 
from the U.S. Departments of Education. As such, each 
project is required to exclusively serve eligible participants 
that are citizens or nationals of the United States; or, are 
permanent residents of the United States. In order to verify 
a participant's project eligibility, social security numbers are 
required and also later used when submitting information for 
the annual performance reports due to the U.S. Departments 
of Education. (Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended. 
Sections 402. 483. and 4S4(p). 20 USC 1091 (p): Code of 
Federal Regulations, 34 CFR 668.320) and 668.36). 

Enrollment Verifications 

Students needing official verification of their enrollment 
should submit a completed Enrollment Verification Request to the 
Office of the Registrar at least one week before the verification is 
needed. Enrollment Verification Requests should include the specific 
information needed, including actual dates of attendance, full-timepart- 
time status, residency status, etc. Enrollment Verification requests are 
only processed for the current or previous semesters. Future semester 
enrollment verifications are only processed after the last day to drop 
with a refund for that semester. Enrollment Verification requests are 
not processed for any student or alumnus with an obligation to Edison 
State such as unpaid fees, overdue loans, library books, audiovisual 
equipment, or whose admission records are not complete. Smdents are 
encouraged to contact National Clearinghouse at (703) 742-4200 for 
official enrollment verifications. 

Final Grade Reports 

Final grades arc available to students after the end of each 
semester through Edison State's student online services or through the 
FACTS Web site. Edison State does not mail final grade reports. 

Grade Corrections 

A request for a grade correction must be made during the semester 
immediately following the semester in which the incorrect grade was 



31 



assigned. The instructor who taught the class and the appropriate 
academic dean must approve the grade correction. No grade will be 
changed after a degree is awarded. 

Academic Second Chance 

The Academic Second Chance policy allows students to request 
that transfer or Edison State coursework that is five calendar years or 
older be excluded from GPA calculations and determining graduation 
eligibility. To be eligible, students must complete all admissions 
requirements and be admitted to a degree or certificate program. 
Academic Second Chance is a one-time non-reversible opportunity. 

The student must submit a completed Academic Second Chance 
petition to the Office of the Registrar on the Lee Campus, or to the 
Campus Dean at Charlotte, Collier and Hendry/Glades. The student 
must complete a minimum of twelve semester hours while maintaining 
a GPA of 2.00 or higher for the petition to be considered. ESL/ENS/ 
EAP and college preparatory courses are not included when calculating 
the twelve semester hour minimum and the 2.0 GPA. Courses included 
in a previously awarded ESC degree program are ineligible for petition 
under this policy. 

The following statement is added to the student's transcript when 
the petition is approved: "Academic Second Chance policy has been 
applied." All grades and courses remain on the transcript. 

The Academic Second Chance policy is applied only once and 
it cannot be reversed. Students planning to transfer to another college 
or university are cautioned that the receiving institution may use all 
grades earned when computing a GPA for admissions eligibility or 
for other purposes. Academic Second Chance has no effect on the 
student's financial aid award history. Students may request Academic 
Second Chance for a term or terms, but not individual courses within 
a term. Academic Second Chance has no effect on the calculation of 
course attempts related to the multiple course attempts surcharge. 

Petitions 

The Petitions process is designed to review, based on a student's 
written request, Edison State College policies or procedures related 
to: 

1. Admissions eligibility to the College; 

2. Admissions eligibility to an Edison State College 
Baccalaureate Program; Substitution/waiver of a course 
required for a degree or certificate program; 

3. Readmission from academic suspension or dismissal; 

4. Exception to the Maximum Attempts Policy; 

5. Exception to the Third Attempt Surcharge; or 

6. Exception to registration polices or deadlines. 

Students begin the process by completing an official petition 
form available in the Office of the Registrar, Office of Counseling and 
Advising, or the Campus Dean's Office. Completed petitions must be 
submitted to the same office by the end of the semester immediately 
following the semester in which the event occurred. Petitions that are 
more than one academic year old arc not considered. 

Many petitions, especially those regarding admissions processes 
are handled directly in the Office of the Registrar. The Office of the 
Registrar makes a determinaiion based on the information collected by 
his/her office or provided by the student, and may request a meeting 
with the student for further information or clarification. If necessary, 
additional college administrators responsible for the area of the 
petition may be involved in the decision. The Office of the Registrar 
will inform the student of the decision by e-mail. Petitions without 
third party supporting documentation will not be considered. 



Appeal of an Academic Petition 

A student has a right to appeal a decision made on an academic 
petition. A student wishing to appeal a decision must complete an 
appeal form, and return it to the Office of the Registrar or the campus 
dean or President's Office. The appeal is forwarded to the appropriate 
campus or academic dean or the Campus President's Office, if the 
appropriate campus or academic dean or the Campus President had not 
previously reviewed the petition. The appeal is forwarded to the Office 
of the Vice President of Academic and Student Affairs if the appropriate 
campus or academic dean or the Campus President made the original 
decision. A copy of the original petition is automatically part of the 
subsequent appeal. An appeal is not simply a review of the original 
petition decision but a request to reverse the original decision. The 
student must supply new, relevant, previously undisclosed information, 
or present an argument as to why the original petition decision should 
be reversed. For an appeal to be successful, new information must be 
critical to the case, and new consideration or arguments should prove 
the student's case conclusively. The reviewing office may request a 
meeting or additional information for clarification. The Vice President 
of Academic and Student Affairs has responsibility for making the 
final academic decision for Edison State College. Appeal forms are 
available in the Office of the Registrar or campus dean's office. 

Release of Student Information 

Edison State College may, without the written consent of the 
student, release information from the student's education record to a 
court of competent jurisdiction in compliance with a court order of 
that court or to the attorney of record pursuant to a lawfully issued 
subpoena, provided that in advance of compliance with the court order 
or subpoena Edison State notified the student. A student who objects 
to the release of their records must file a motion to invalidate the 
court order or subpoena, and provide Edison State with copies of the 
relevant legal documents. All releases of student information are made 
in compliance with state and federal regulations. 

Student Holds 

Holds are placed on a student's account, records, transcript, grades, 
diploma, or registration if the student does not fulfill all financial 
or other obligations to the College. Satisfaction of the obligation is 
required prior to the release of the hold by the appropriate College 
office. 

Transcripts 

Students needing an official Edison State College transcript 
should submit a completed Transcript Request Form to the Office of 
the Registrar at least one week before the official transcript is needed. 
Official transcripts may also be requested via Edison State's student 
online services. Transcript requests are not processed for any student 
or alumnus with an obligation to Edison State College such as unpaid 
fees, overdue loans, library books, audiovisual equipment, or whose 
admission records are not complete. The completed transcript request 
should contain the student's name (at the time they attended Edison 
State), student identification number, date of birth, the name and 
address of where the transcript is to be sent, and the student's signature. 
There is a $5 charge for an official transcript. Unofficial transcripts 
may be obtained via Edison State's student online services.

TRANSFER OF CREDITS 



TRANSFER OF CREDITS 

• High School and Technical Centers 

• Credit from Military Service Schools 

• Transfer Information and Policies 

• State University System Articulation Agreement 

• Transfer Sen ices 

• Edison State University Center 

• Current Program Offerings 

Edison State College has a number of articulation agreements 
that ensure the transfer of credit from other schools, colleges, and 
universities into Edison State degree programs, and from Edison State 
degree programs into programs at other colleges and universities. 
The Florida Department of Education also has agreements that 
ensure transfer of credit across state colleges and universities. These 
agreements are summarized below. 



High School and Technical Centers 

In accordance with the Florida Department of Education, Edison 
State College provides articulation opportunities to high school and 
technical center graduates from Lee. Charlotte. Collier, Hendry and 
Glades District Schools. Edison State College and these districts 
are partners in the Tech Prep program, which offers students the 
opportunity to focus on technical high school electives that will help 
train them for high-skill, high-wage occupations. While high school or 



technical center students are preparing for careers and post secondary 
education, they can earn college credit that may be applied toward an 
Associate in Science degree at Edison State College. 

Articulated credit may be awarded to the eligible student who 
meets the following criteria: 

1 . The student must have completed an approved technical 
program of study (at least 3 high school courses or an 
earned technical center certificate); 

2. The student must be currently enrolled and seeking an 
associate degree in a correlating discipline at Edison 
State College. The student must successfully meet all 
requirements that apply to associate degree seeking 
students as stated in the Edison State College Catalog; 

3. The student must successfully complete a minimum of 12 
credit hours at Edison State College. 

In addition, the State of Florida has approved statewide 
articulation agreements for transfer to an Associate of 
Science degree for students who complete an approved 
technical program of study and earn a technical center 
certificate. Please note: the State of Florida is continuing to 
develop agreements. The following table outlines approved 
transfers:

Credit Based on ACE 
Recommendations 

The American Council on Education (ACE) Corporate Programs 
recommends academic credit for college-level examinations and 
training courses offered by business and industry, labor unions, 
associations, and government agencies. Edison State College 
recognizes the recommendations of ACE as shown on the following 
pages. In order to receive credit, the Edison State College Office of the 
Registrar must receive official documentation of successful completion 
of the training, or examination scores, either from an ACE transcript or 
score report, or from the sponsoring organization. Documentation must 
be sent from ACE or the sponsoring organization directly to Edison 



State College Office of the Registrar. P.O. Box 60210, Fort Myers. FL 
33906. Credit will not be awarded if it duplicates credit already posted 
to a student's transcript. 

ACE program evaluations are published in the National Guide to 
Education Credit for Training Programs and the Guide to Educational 
Credit by Examination, which are distributed annually to college 
registrars and admissions officers throughout the United States. 
Academic divisions within the College may make a determination, 
on a case-by-case basis, of credit awards for training programs or 
examinations not listed below, but contained in one of the ACE 
publications. If a determination is made to grant a credit award, the 
Academic Dean will notify the Office of the Registrar accordingly.

Departmental By-Pass Exam Policy 

Departmental course by-pass exams are designed to allow a 
student to challenge prerequisites for specific courses. All Edison 
Stale College departmental by-pass exams will follow the rules and 
procedures outlined below. Failure of a student or department to strictly 

adhere to the follow ing policies will result in denial of prerequisite by- 
pass by that examination. 

Students must initiate a request with the appropriate Department 
Chair. Should the Chair approve, the student must arrange tor the 
examination with the department offering the course. 

Departments offer by-pass exams m a limited number of courses 
and have the prerogative of excluding certain courses which are 
demonstrably unsuited for waiver by examination. 

The academic standards for by-pass examinations will be 
commensurate with the academic standards for the course. If a student's 
performance on the examination is judged to be of C or higher quality, 
the department Chair will notify the Office of the Registrar that the 
student w ill not be required to complete the course as part of his/her 
academic program. Students will not earn credits through by-pass 
examinations. 

If a student fails to achieve C or higher quality work on an 
attempted examination, no action is required other than the notification 
of the student by the department. However, that student is not eligible 
for another such examination in the same course. Once a student has 
failed a course, the student is not eligible for a by-pass examination 
for that course. 

Students may only take a by-pass exam during the allotted 
period designated by Edison State College. 

• Students must show a valid student ID in order to take the 
exam. 

No books, notes, and/or papers are allowed in the 
examination room. All personal items, including cell phones 
and electronic devices, must be left outside the testing area. 

• If calculators and or scrap paper are needed for the exam and 
allowed by the specific course, they will be provided by the 
college and collected before the student leaves the testing 
site. 

• There will be strict adherence to predetermined departmental 
time limits. 

All by-pass exams must be proctored by the respective 
department associate dean, chair, or faculty member 
designated by the individual departments. 

• A grade of 70% or better must be earned in order for the 
exam to count toward a prerequisite bypass. 

• Once the student has received the exam, he/she may not 
leave the testing site. If the student opts to leave, he/she may 
not return to finish the exam. 

• Once the student completes his/her exam, the exam is 
graded and the grade is sent to the Department Chair. The 
Department Chair submits the results to the Registrar through 
the by-pass Exam Grade Report Form. 

• Students will be notified o\ the results within two weeks of 
completing the exam. 

• It is the responsibility of the students to notify the department 
Associate Dean or Chair at least two weeks prior to the 
testing date if he/she wishes to take a by-pass exam. 

A student may take an individual exam only once. 

• No exam may be taken by a student w ho has already begun 
the course. 

A student may not take a by-pass exam if he/she has already 
taken and'or failed or received a W (withdrawal) in the 
specific course. 



• A by-pass exam cannot be used to replace an I (Incomplete) 
for any course. 

A student requesting a by-pass exam must be currently 
enrolled at Edison State College. 

A student may not use a by-pass as part of his or her credit 
load or for maintaining financial aid requirements. 

Challenge exams are offered in a limited number of courses. 
Student records will be reviewed for comparable courses to determine 
eligibility to take departmental challenge exams. Upon successful 
completion of a challenge exam, the student will receive credit, but 
no grade, for the course. Edison State College reserves the right to 
deny students an opportunity to challenge credit through this process. 
If eligible, students can pay the applicable testing fee to sit for the 
challenge exam. Students must successfully pass the challenge exam 
to receive comparable credit. Students are also encouraged to complete 
any related CLEP exams to receive college-level credit. Information 
about CLEP exams may be obtained in the Testing Department at 
Edison State College. 

Transfer Information and 
Policies 

Transfer Classification 

A student is classified as a transfer student if he/she has previously 
registered at any other regionally accredited college or university, 
regardless of the amount of time spent in attendance or credit earned. 
Students may transfer credit from other institutions into Edison State 
College; however, at least 25% of the program or certificate credit 
must be earned at Edison (excluding CLEP, credit by exam, or prior 
learning). 

Applicants who plan to earn a degree or certificate at Edison State 
College must provide official transcripts from all previously attended 
colleges or universities. Official transcripts must be sent directly to 
Edison State College, Office of the Registrar, Lee Campus, within 
the first semester of enrolling. These documents must be sent directly 
from the educational institution to Edison State. Hand-delivered or 
faxed transcripts are not considered official. 

Acceptance of Transfer Credits from 
Regionally Accredited Institutions 

All credits earned at other colleges or universities accredited by one 
of the six regional accrediting bodies will be recorded as transfer credit 
and placed on the student's permanent record (transcript). Courses will 
be equated to a similar course or an appropriate unclassified elective. 
For students pursuing a baccalaureate degree, all earned credits will be 
recorded at the appropriate level, i.e. freshman, sophomore, junior or 
senior level. 

Acceptance of Transfer Credits from Non- 
Regionally Accredited Institutions 

Edison State may accept credits from institutions that are not 
regionally accredited in accordance with the State of Florida K- 
16 Articulation Agreement, which recognizes courses approved in 
connection with the Florida Department of Education Statewide 
Course Numbering System. 

Acceptance of credits from non-regionally accredited institutions 
of higher education will be based upon evaluation and recommendation 
from the Edison State College instructional department responsible for 
the course subject area(s). Credits awarded at institutions not regionally 

39 



accredited may be accepted by Edison State College and placed on the 
transcript if the credits represent collegiate level coursework relevant 
to the program of study and course credit and level of instruction 
resulting in student competencies that are at least equivalent to those 
of students enrolled in comparable instruction at Edison State. The 
following factors will be considered in determining whether courses 
are transferable and if so, how they will be recorded. 

1. Breadth, depth and rigor of course content as evidenced 
by course syllabi, prerequisites, placement test scores, exit 
requirements, student portfolios, textbooks, writing or oral 
communication requirements, grading standards, catalog 
descriptions, etc.; 

2. Qualifications of the faculty member(s) providing the 
instruction; 

3. Age of credits; 

4. Recommendations through other established credit 
assessment bodies (e.g. ACE); 

5. Institutional accreditation via other professional assessment 
accrediting bodies (e.g. AM A, NLN. state agency); 

6. Secondary documentation of course competencies (e.g. 
professional certification, standardized exam scores, etc.). 

Please note: Edison does not transfer degrees from non-regionally 
accredited institutions. 

Recording Transfer Credits on the 
Student's Permanent Record (Transcript) 

While evaluating credits. Edison State College reserves the right 
to delay the recording of transfer credits on the student's permanent 
record. Final award or posting of credits to the student's permanent 
record may be contingent upon successful completion of one or more 
of the following requirements: 

1. Edison State College residency requirement: 

2. Successful completion of higher-level courses in the 
student's program of study; 

3. Successful completion of subsequent courses in the subject/ 
course sequence; 

4. Demonstration of specific lab clinical skills or other applied 
competencies; 

5. Additional supplemental independent directed study in the 
subject area; 

6. Presentation of a portfolio of coursework substantiating the 
competencies; 

7. Verification of faculty credentials at the transferring 
institution. 

Once accepted, transfer credits will be recorded on the student's 
permanent record as externally awarded and will indicate the original 
institution awarding the credit. Where appropriate, an equivalent 
Edison State College course number may also be indicated. When 
Edison State College docs not offer an equivalent course or if the 
course differs substantively from the suggested Edison State College 
course, the transfer credits may be listed on the transcript as an elective 



Application of Transfer Credits to the 
Baccalaureate Degree Programs 

In order to maintain both flexibility and subject area integrity, as 
well as to recognize the structure of the Baccalaureate programs, the 
following guidelines apply to the use of upper division elective credit 
for program completion requirements. 



a. Upper division courses previously taken from related 
academic areas, which are not identified as equivalent 
courses through transfer evaluation, may be reviewed on a 
case-by-casc basis by the Associate Dean of Baccalaureate 
Programs in collaboration with program faculty. Students 
may present courses for review by following the process 
outlined below: 

b. Submit to the District Registrar, in writing, a request for 
course review (attach the Edison State Course Outline for 
the course in question. A separate form must be submitted for 
each course), 

c. Attach all relevant documentation (transfer course syllabi, 
assignments, exams, course outlines). If needed, a student 
may be asked to participate in a meeting with the evaluator. 
Once a decision has been made, a letter will be sent to the 
student from the District Registrar's office acknowledging 
the action taken. 

Please note that equivalencies may be determined by combining 
multiple documentation sources. As a result, the Associate Dean 
may determine that credit will be awarded after completion of 
specific Edison State College upper division coursework or through a 
combination of transfer courses where grades are consistent with the 
Baccalaureate program graduation requirement.

and credit will be awarded but will not be calculated in the 
student's transfer GPA. 

6. Applicants may be exempt from placement testing based

State University System Articulation 
Agreement 

Florida law provides that Associate in Arts degree graduates of 
a Florida community college must be granted admission to an upper- 
division program offered by a state university or college, unless that 
program has been designated limited access (see Transfer Guarantees 
below) If limited access minimum standards are not met, universities 
may deny both acceptance into the desired program and acceptance 
into the university. The law gives priority to community college 
Associate in Arts graduates over out-of-state students for admission to 
a state university. Florida community colleges have similar articulation 
agreements with the Independent Colleges and Universities of Florida 
(ICUF). 

Effective Fall 2000, all graduates of an Associate in Science 
degree program listed in the Statewide Articulation Manual shall be 
granted admission into a corresponding baccalaureate program at the 
state universities or colleges, except for limited-access programs and 
those requiring specific grades in particular courses for admission. The 
Florida Department of Education stipulates that the integrity of the 
general education program will be recognized by all public institutions 
of higher education in Florida. Any questions about the general 
education program should be addressed to an Academic Advising 
Specialist or the Coordinator of Counseling Services. 

Transfer Guarantees 

Florida community college Associate in Arts graduates are 
guaranteed the following rights when transferring to a state university 
under the Statewide Articulation Agreement ( State Board of Education 
Rule6A-l0.024): 

1 . Admission to one of the state universities or colleges, except 
to limited-access programs which have additional admission 
requirements. 

2. Acceptance of at least 60 credit hours by the state universities 
toward the baccalaureate degree. 



41 



3. Adherence to university requirements and policies based 
on the catalog in effect at the time the student first entered 
a community college, provided the student maintains 
continuous enrollment. 

4. Transfer of equivalent courses under the Statewide Course 
Numbering System. 

5. Acceptance by the state universities of credit earned in 
accelerated programs (e.g., CLEP, Advanced Placement. 
Accelerated Programs. International Baccalaureate). 

6. No additional general education core requirements. 

7. Advance knowledge of selection criteria for limited access 
programs. 

8. Equal opportunity with native university students to enter 
limited-access programs. 

The universities determine the courses and prerequisites that 
must be taken to receive a baccalaureate degree. Although all credits 
earned toward an Associate in Arts degree will transfer to a university, 
not all credits earned will meet program prerequisites or course 
requirements for a baccalaureate degree. Therefore, students must 
assume responsibility for knowing the course requirements of the 
intended program and taking the appropriate course! s) while pursuing 
the Associate in Arts degree. 

Section 1009.286. Florida Statutes, establishes an "excess hour" 
surcharge for a student seeking a baccalaureate degree at a state 
university. It is critical that students, including those entering Florida 
colleges, are aware of the potential for additional course fees. 

"Excess hours" are defined as hours that go beyond 120% of the 
hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, if the 
length of the program is 1 20 credit hours, the student may be subject to 
an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 144 credit 
hours (1 20 x 120%). 

All students whose educational plan may include earning a 
bachelor's degree should make every effort to enroll in and successfully 
complete those courses that are required for their intended major on 
their first attempt. Florida college students intending to transfer to a 
state university should identity a major or "transfer program" early and 
be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the 
approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and'or repeats, 
as well as enrollment in courses non-essential to the intended major, 
may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge. 



Edison State University Center 

In accordance with F.S. 1 007.22, Edison State College has established 
formal agreements with regionally accredited education institutions to 
increase access to higher education in the ESC service area. 

The Edison University Center (EUC) is an alliance between 
Edison State College and regionally accredited colleges and universities 
offering unique opportunities for Edison graduates to earn bachelor 
and graduate level degrees. Features of degree programs offered 
through the EUC include the convenience of distance-based learning 
formats, classes on an Edison campus, transfer of up to 90 hours of 
credit from Edison, seamless admission from a bachelor's program 
into a graduate program and, in some cases, tuition benefits. Students 
are supported in their learning by ESC staff. Participating colleges 
and universities may also have support staff on-site. EUC programs 
are individually tailored by Edison and participating institutions and 
compliment Edison associate and baccalaureate degrees. 

For more information about Edison State College baccalaureate 
degrees, consult the EUC website or the Baccalaureate and University 
Programs Division at (239) 489-9295 or (800) 749-2322. option #5. or 
e-mail bachelorsdeurceto EdisonState.edu. 



Transfer Services 

Shidents who plan to transfer to an upper level college or 
university program are encouraged to consult with an Academic 
Advisor or Coordinator of Student Services concerning transfer 
requirements. Students should also obtain a catalog and list of the 
requirements from the institution that they expect to attend. The 
Florida Academic Counseling and Tracking for Students program 
(available via www.FACTS.org) offers a variety of student services 
and resources provided by the State of Florida and participating 
institutions. Students anticipating transfer should begin a preliminary 
application to the college of their choice in the fall session of their 
sophomore year. Students who plan to transfer to Edison State College 
Bachelor programs should meet with an Academic Advisor or staff in 
the Baccalaureate and University Programs Division.

Article III: Proscribed Conduct 

Proscribed conduct can be seen in two general categories: 
conduct that represents a violation of academic integrity and conduct 
that represents violations to the general student code of conduct. Any 
violation of the Code represents a disciplinary issue that implies a 
disciplinary record that is maintained with the District Dean of Student 
Services. However, given that Edison State College is committed to 
educational excellence, academic misconduct warrants particular 
attention; therefore, this article contains a general listing of proscribed 
conduct and a special section addressing violations of academic 
integrity. 

Any student found to have committed the following misconduct 
is subject to the disciplinary sanctions: 

1. Insubordination or Disrespect for Constituted Authority: 
Constituted authority is defined to mean any person 
designated by the institution to implement institutional 
policies. Failing to obey a College official who is performing 
his/her duties and failing to respond to an official summons 
from an administrative officer of the College within the time 
indicated constitutes insubordination. 

2. Gambling for Money or Material Values: Games of chance 
for money or material value are prohibited on campus.

Article IV: Academic Integrity 

Edison State College recognizes that adherence to high principles 
of academic integrity is vital to the academic function of the College. 
Therefore, the entire academic community shares the responsibility for 
establishing and maintaining standards of academic integrity. Those 
in charge of academic tasks have an obligation to make known the 
standards and expectations of acceptable academic conduct. Each 
student has an obligation to know and understand those standards 
and expectations. While the academic community recognizes that 
the responsibility for learning and personal conduct is an individual 
matter, all students and faculty members are expected to help maintain 
academic integrity at the College by refusing to participate in, or 
tolerate, any dishonesty. 

The general aspects of academic integrity expected of our entire 
academic community can be summarized in positive statements 
regarding student behavior. Edison State College expects all students 
to be honest in their academic endeavors. All academic work should 
be performed in a manner which will provide an honest reflection 
of the knowledge and abilities of each student. All members of the 
community understand the rationale for. and the critical nature of. 
academic integrity. Therefore, any policy associated with academic 
integrity must be linked to efforts to educate students, faculty and staff 
regarding definitions, concepts and issues associated with academic 
integrity. 

Violations of student academic integrity include any actions 
which attempt to promote or enhance the academic standing of any 
student by dishonest means. The following is a listing of some, but not 
necessarily all. actions that are violations of academic integrity: 

1 . Cheating on an academic exercise. Cheating includes giving 
or receiving unauthorized aid or information by copying, by 
using materials not authorized, by attempting to receive credit 
for work performed by another, or by otherwise failing to 
abide by academic rules. The person who aids an individual 
in cheating will be held equally responsible. 

2. Plagiarizing the words, ideas, or data of others by not 
properly acknowledging the source. Plagiarism includes 
failing to identify verbatim statements as quotations and 
failing to give appropriate credit and citations of sources 
used. The principles of academic integrity require that all 
work submitted or presented without citation of sources will 
be the student's own work, not only on tests, but in themes, 
papers, homework, and class presentations, unless it has 
been clearly specified that the work is a team effort. 

3. Fabricating information with intent to deceive. Fabrication 



includes, but is not limited to, falsifying experimental data 
or results, inventing research or laboratory data or results for 
work not done, knowingly presenting falsified or invented 
results, citing information not taken from the source 
indicated, falsely claiming sources not used, known to be 
false, misleading, or not supported by evidence. 

4. Submitting any academic accomplishment in whole or in part 
for credit more than once whether in the same course or in 
different courses without the prior consent of the instructor. 

5. Obtaining or attempting to obtain an examination, or any 
part of it. before, during, or after the examination has been 
given. 

6. Failing to follow approved test taking procedures by 
performing such acts as changing answers after exam is scored 
and communicating verbally, non-verbally or electronically 
with another person during an exam, or leaving while an 
exam is still in progress. 

7. Copying, editing, deleting, or intentionally damaging Edison 
State College computer files without permission. 

8. Altering, changing, or forging College academic records or 
forging the signature of any academic officer.

violation occurred. 

2. NOTE CONCERNING ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

the Campus Dean with recommendations concerning 
sanctions. 

e. If the faculty member confirms, based on consultation 
with appropriate Discipline Chair and Academic Dean, 
that a course-related violation of academic integrity 
is a first offense, the faculty member may choose to 
deal with the offense without further consultation. In 
this case, regardless of whether or not the student has 
responded to the charges, the faculty member will

Academic Grievance Procedures 

Guidelines 

As with most procedures included in this catalog, the academic 
grievance policy is based on the assumption that academic 
disagreements should be resolved by student and faculty interaction. 
These formal grievance procedures are intended to provide all Edison 
State College students with opportunities for objective review of facts 
and events that are related to the cause of a grievance when the involved 
faculty members and students arc not able to resolve a dispute on their 
own. These reviews will be accomplished in a collegial. non-judicial 
atmosphere. All parties are expected to behave in a civil manner. 

Article I: Definition of Terms 

1. A formal academic grievance is a claim that a specific 
academic decision or action that affects that student's 
academic record or status has violated published policies and 
procedures, or has been applied to the grievant in a manner 
different from that used for other students. Grievances may 
relate to such decisions as the assignment of a grade seen by 
the student as incorrect or the dismissal or failure of a student 
for his or her action(s). Academic grievances will not deal 
with general student complaints. 

2. The instructor is any classroom instructor, thesis/dissertation 
directed study supervisor, committee member or chair, 
or counselor/advisor who interacts with the student in an 
academic environment. 

3. An incorrect grade refers to a grade that is not representative 
of a student's ability or performance as defined by the grading 
rubric associated with a specific course. 

4. A Discipline Chairperson is the academic head of a discipline: 
this can be a dean discipline designee. 

5. Dean means Campus-specific Academic Dean, the District 
Academic Deans, and or the District Vice President for 
Academic and Student Affairs. 

6. Written Communication will include hard copy documents 
sent to the recipient's address of record. 

7. For purposes of this policy, the burden of proof is with the 
student; this implies that the student has the responsibility 
for supplying evidence that proves that an instructor's 
decision, action, or grade assignment was incorrect. An 
incorrect grading decision is one in which the grade is based 
on something other than the student's ability as described 
by the grading rubric published in the course syllabus. All 
decisions will be based on the preponderance of evidence. 



Article II: Resolution at the Discipline 
Level 

1 . The student shall first make a reasonable effort to resolve his 
or her grievance with the instructor concerned, with the date 
of the incident triggering the start of the process (i.e., the 
issuance of a grade; the receipt of an assignment), and the 
instructor shall accommodate a reasonable request to discuss 
and attempt to resolve this issue. 

2. If the situation cannot be resolved or the instructor is not 
available, the student shall file a notification letter within 
fifteen business days of the triggering incident to the 
Discipline Chairperson. This shall be a concise written 
statement of particulars and must include information 
pertaining to how, in the student's opinion. College policies 
or procedures were violated. The Discipline Chairperson 
shall provide a copy of this statement to the instructor. 

3. The Discipline Chairperson shall discuss the statement jointly 
or individually with the student and the instructor to see if 
the grievance can be resolved. If the discipline maintains its 
own grievance procedure, it should be applied at this point. If 
the grievance can be resolved, the chairperson shall provide 
a statement to that effect to the student and the instructor 
with a copy to the appropriate Associate Dean. 

4. I f the grievance cannot be resolved, the Discipline Chairperson 
shall notify both the student and the instructor, informing 
the student of his/her right to file a written request within 
three weeks to advance the grievance to the Campus level. 
The instructor may tile a written response to the grievance 
petition. Upon receipt of the student's request to move the 
process to the Campus Level and the instructor's response 
to the grievance (if provided), the Discipline Chairperson 
shall immediately notify the Campus Dean or Vice President 
of Instruction that a formal grievance has been submitted, 
providing copies of the student's initiating grievance 
statement, any instructor's written response to the griev ance. 
and the written request from the student to have the process 
advanced to the Campus Level (which may include additional 
responsive or final statements by the student). Should the 
student not file a written request to move the grievance to the 
Campus Level within the prescribed time, the grievance will 
end. 

If the grievance concerns the Discipline Chairperson or other 
officials of the department, the student has a right to bypass the 
departmental process and proceed directly to the Campus Level. 

NOTE: Disciplines may develop their own formal procedures 
for considering grievances. Such procedures must be considered and 
approved by the District Vice President for Academic and Student 
Services, and published on the Discipline's website. When such 
procedures exist, the Discipline's examination of the grievance will 
unfold as specified in the procedures 

Article III: Resolution at the Campus 
Level 

1 . Upon receipt of the grievance, the Campus Dean or Vice 
President for Instruction will either determine that the 
matter is not an academic grievance and dismiss it, or. with 
15 business days, the Campus Dean or vice President for

expressed. A written concern or complaint is to be delivered to the 
supervisor of the area, except for areas noted below. Since a concern 
or complaint is normally related to a specific incident, it is to be 
addressed by the appropriate College official. A concern or complaint 
about a grade will be referred to the professor, since it is the professor's 
professional obligation to assess student performance. 

A concern or complaint related to sexual harassment must be 
submitted to the District Dean of Student Services, Edison State 
College, 8099 College Parkway. P.O. Box 60210, Fort Myers, Florida

Violations of College policy must be submitted to the Chief 
Learning Officer. "Incident Report" forms may be obtained from the 
Security Office on each campus. 

Security Policies and Statistics 

The Office of Public Safety and Security is committed to 
providing a safe, secure and orderly environment of the College. The 
security of our campuses is a cooperative effort, and students, faculty, 
staff and visitors must assume responsibility for personal safety and 
the protection of personal and college property. 

Prompt reporting of criminal activities, suspicious persons or 
behavior, potentially hazardous situations and emergencies to Public 
Safety is encouraged to allow the department to respond as quickly as 
possible. However, in the event of a crisis, immediate danger, injury 
or criminal activity, the victim/witness is advised to call 911. then

Florida Statute Section 1006.69 

VACCINATION AGAINST MENINGOCOCCAL MENINGITIS 
AND HEPATITIS B 

1. A postsecondary educational institution shall provide 
detailed information concerning the risks associated with 
meningococcal meningitis and hepatitis B and the availability, 
effectiveness, and known contraindications of any required 
or recommended vaccine to every student, or to the student's 
parent if the student is a minor, who has been accepted for 
admission. 

2. An individual enrolled in a postsecondary educational 
institution who will be residing in on-campus housing 
shall provide documentation of vaccinations against 
meningococcal meningitis and hepatitis B unless the 
individual, if the individual is I 8 years of age or older, or the 
individual's parents, if the individual is a minor, declines the 
vaccinations by signing a separate waiver for each of those 
vaccines, provided by the institution, acknowledging receipt 



and review of the information provided. 
3. This section does not require any postsecondary educational 
institution to provide or pay for vaccinations against 
meningococcal meningitis and hepatitis B. 

Meningitis is a serious disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. 
Because bacterial meningitis is a grave illness and can rapidly progress 
to death, it requires early diagnosis and treatment. This is often difficult 
because the symptoms closely resemble those of the flu and the highest 
incidence occurs during late winter and early spring (flu season). When 
not fatal, bacterial meningitis can lead to permanent disabilities such as 
hearing loss, brain damage or loss of limbs. 

Hepatitis B is a serious infectious disease caused by a virus that 
attacks the liver. The hepatitis B virus (HBV) can cause life-long 
infection that leads to cirrhosis (scarring) of the liver, liver cancer, or 
liver failure. There is no cure for hepatitis B. but the infection can be 
prevented by vaccination. Each year, about 200.000 people are infected 
with the virus and 5.000 people die. 

Although there have been no reported cases of meningitis or 
hepatitis B at our College in recent years, we are taking the proactiv e 
step towards informing and protecting our students. For more 
information, please contact the Office of the District Dean of Student 
Services.

b. An individual who is diagnosed as having Acquired 
Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS)-displaying one

b. The College will not impose any rule(s) or restriction s) 
upon a student with HIV that will have the effect of 
limiting that individual's participation in the College's 
educational programs and/or services solely on the 
basis of that person's disability. 

c. Current research has indicated the possibility that 
the central nervous system may become affected by 
HIV, which may lead to progressive neurological and 
cognitive dysfunction and subsequent inability of the 
student to maintain scholastic performance. Decisions 
as to such a student continuing to attend class or being 
suspended or withdrawn from class(es) will be made on 
a case-by-case basis after reasonable accommodations 
have been examined or tried, and after an examination 
of the facts demonstrates to the College that the 
student can no longer function as necessary to meet the 
requirements of the student's course or program, or that 
the student presents a health or safety risk to self or to 



the college community. 

DISCRIMINATION AND HARASSMENT COMPLAINT 
PROCEDURE (Edison State College District Board of Trustees 
Policy 6Hx6:2.03) 

Edison State College is committed to providing an educational 
and working environment free from discrimination or harassment 
based on such factors as race, sex, age, religion, national origin, 
disability, marital, or veteran status. Edison State College, as a matter 
of policy and in compliance with Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 
1964 and the Florida Civil Rights Act of 1992 for employees and Title 
I\ of the Education Act of 1 972 and the Florida Education Equity Act, 
absolutely opposes any act of discrimination or harassment and strictly 
prohibits and will not tolerate such action, whether those involved stand 
in a subordinate-supervisory relationship, student-faculty relationship, 
student-student relationship or others doing business with Edison State 
College. 

For purposes of this Policy "discrimination" includes, but is not 
limited to. action with partiality or prejudice for or against a person of 
a group on the basis of one of the protected categories above. 

For purposes of this Policy "harassment" includes, but is not 
limited to, verbal, physical, and visual conduct that creates intimidating, 
offensive, or hostile working or educational environment or that 
interferes with work performance or educational opportunities. 

There are two types of educational 'workplace sexual harassment. 
The first is "quid pro quo" which generally means that type of 
harassment where a person is promised better employment conditions 
such as a promotion or a desired transfer or, in the alternative, is 
threatened with lesser conditions such as a demotion or termination 
if the person refuses sexual overtures from a supervisor or some other 
person in the management structure of the employer. The second type 
of sexual harassment is a "hostile environment." A hostile environment 
is created by a pervasive sexually oriented work/educational 
atmosphere. For example, disparagement related to one's sex. 
unwelcome sexual flirtations, sexually offensive jokes or comments, 
and sexually offensive material displayed in the workplace can create 
a sexually hostile environment. A sexually hostile environment will 
exist if the type of conduct described above has the purpose or effect 
oi' unreasonably interfering with an individual's work performance 
or academic or professional performance or creating an intimidating, 
hostile or offensive working or educational environment. 

Edison State College is also equally opposed to willful and 
intentional bad faith claims of discrimination or harassment. Bad faith 
claims are those that are known or should be known by the alleging 
employee'student to be false. The College takes this strong stand 
because such claims often affect the future employment and important 
family relationships of. not only the claimant, but also the person 
against whom the claim is made. 

If an employee or student becomes aware of any behavior that 
may constitute discrimination or harassment, it is the responsibility of 
that person to report such conduct. 

1. Employees should notify their immediate supervisor, 
the Associate Vice President of Human Resources or the 
Executive Vice President. 

2. Students should notify cither the Dean for Student Services 
or the Associate Vice President of Human Resources. 

Any report of alleged discrimination or harassment will be 
promptly and fully investigated by the individual contacted above or his 
or her designee. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against 
any employee, student or applicant who is determined to have violated 
this policy against discrimination or harassment or against anyone who 
knowingly files false claims of discrimination or harassment. Based on 
the seriousness of the offense, disciplinary action may include a verbal 



58 



or written reprimand, suspension, or termination. Certain disciplinary 
actions, as determined by the President, may require action by the 
District Board of Trustees, depending upon the nature of the offense 
and the resulting severity of the action to be taken. In such cases, the 
District President will recommend appropriate action to the District 
Board of Trustees following the completion of the investigation and the 
communication of the District President's position to the individuals 
involved. Claims of discrimination or harassment made against a 
student may be referred to the student disciplinary committee. Results 
of the hearing may lead to suspension or expulsion. 

Retaliatory action against anyone filing a valid complaint of 
any type of discrimination or harassment will not be tolerated. The 
individual investigating such reports or claims on behalf of the 
College, « ith the District President's full support, will make all efforts 
necessary to safeguard against any retaliation against any individual 
involved in the discrimination or harassment claim and any witnesses 
interviewed during the investigatory process. 

This policy is intended to reflect applicable laws regarding 
discrimination and harassment, as such laws may from time to time be 
staled or clarified, and to provide no greater or lesser protection than 
the laws provide. This policy is to be interpreted and applied with that 
understanding.

Description of Health Risks 

Alcohol. Alcohol consumption causes a number of changes 
in behavior and physiology. Even low doses significantly impair 
judgment, coordination, and abstract mental functioning. Statistics 
show that alcohol use is involved in a majority of violent behaviors 
on college campuses, including acquaintance rape, vandalism, fights, 
and incidents of drinking and driving. Continued abuse may lead to 
dependency, which often causes permanent damage to vital organs and 
deterioration of a healthy lifestyle. 

Cannibis (Marijuana. Hashish). The use of marijuana may impair 
or reduce short-term memory and comprehension, alter sense of time, 
and reduce coordination and energy level. Users often have a lowered 
immune system and an increased risk of lung cancer. The active 
ingredient in marijuana, THC, is stored in the fatty tissues of the brain 
and reproductive system for a minimum of 28 to 30 days. 

Hallucinogens. Lysergic acid (LSD), mescaline, and psilocybin 
cause illusions and hallucinations. The user may experience panic, 
confusion, suspicion, anxiety, and loss of control. Delayed effects, or 
flashbacks, can occur even when use has ceased. Phencyclidine (PCP) 
affects the section of the brain that controls the intellect and keeps 
instincts in check. Because the drug blocks pain receptors, violent PCP 
episodes may result in self-inflicted injuries. 

Cocaine Crack. Cocaine users often have a stuffy, runny nose 
and may have a perforated nasal septum. The immediate effects of 
cocaine use include dilated pupils and elevated blood pressure heart 
rate, respiratory rate, and body temperature, followed by depression. 
Crack, or freebase rock cocaine, is extremely addictive and can cause 



59 



delirium, hallucinations, blurred vision, severe chest pain, muscle 
spasms, convulsions, and even death. 

Amphetamines. Amphetamines can cause a rapid or irregular 
heartbeat, tremors, loss of coordination, collapse, and death. Heavy 
users are prone to irrational acts. 

Heroin. Heroin is an opiate drug that causes the body to have 
diminished pain reactions. The use of heroin can result in coma or 
death due to a reduction in the heart rate. 

Legal Sanctions 

You should be aware that State of Florida statutes provide that it 
is "unlawful for any person to sell, purchase, manufacture, or deliver, 
or to possess with the intent to sell, purchase, manufacture, or deliver, 
a controlled substance in, on, or within 200 feet of the real property 
comprising a public college or other postsecondary educational 
institution." Legal action will be taken for violation of these statutes and 
policies, as appropriate. Any person who violates this paragraph with 
respect to a controlled substance named or described in s.893.03( 1 )(a). 
(l)(b). (l)(d). (2)(a), or (2)(b) commits a felony of the first degree 
punishable as provided in s.775.082, s.775.083., or s.775.084 and 
shall not be eligible for parole or release under the Control Release 
Authority or statutory gain time. 

State law prohibits the possession of alcoholic beverages by 
persons under age 2 1 . punishable for the first offense by a definite term 
of imprisonment not exceeding 60 days and/or a $500 fine, and for a 
subsequent offense by a definite term of imprisonment not exceeding 
one year and a fine of $1 ,000. It is similarly prohibited and punishable 
to distribute alcohol to minors. 

State law makes it a crime for any person to possess or distribute 
illicit drugs (controlled substances as described in Section 893.03. 
Florida Statutes) under Section 893.13, Florida Statutes. Law provides 
certain limited exceptions. The crimes range from second degree 
misdemeanors (up to 60 days imprisonment and up to a $500 fine) to 
first degree felonies (up to 30 years imprisonment and up to $10,000 
tine). 

Trafficking (distributing specified large quantities of various 
controlled substances under Section 893.03. Florida Status) under 
Section 893.135, Florida Statute is punishable, depending on the 
particular illicit drug and quantity involved, by a minimum term 
of imprisonment of 3 to 25 calendar years and a fine of $25,000 to 
$500,000. 

Federal trafficking penalties for first offenses, depending upon the 
illicit drug involved, range from not more than one year imprisonment 
and a fine of not more than $100,000 for an individual to 40 years to life 
imprisonment and a fine of not more than $200,000 for an individual 
to not less than life imprisonment and a fine of not more than 8 million 
dollars for an individual. 

The College requires that any employee who is convicted of any 
offense relating to the sale, purchase, delivery, use, manufacturing 
or distribution of illegal drugs or controlled substances on campus, 
or while attending a College-sponsored event or conducting College 
business to report such conviction to the Human Resources Office, 
(239) 489-9294, no later than five days after the conviction.

American Disabilities Act (ADA) 
Policy 

It is the policy of Edison State College that discrimination against 
qualified individuals with disabilities is prohibited. Pursuant to Titles 
I and II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990 and 
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the College provides 
equal employment and educational opportunities and reasonable 
accommodation for qualified individuals with disabilities. 

Policy Guidelines 

The College reaffirms the principle of Equal Access/Equal 
Opportunity regardless of race, creed, color, national origin, religion, 
sex, age, marital status, and disability. The equal opportunity principle 
applies to otherwise qualified persons with disabilities with regard to 
employment, the deliver}' of educational programs and services and all 
other appropriate areas in which the College is involved. 

The College assumes the Department of Labor's definition 
of an individual with a disability is "one who (1) has a physical or 
mental impairment which substantially limits one or more of such 
person's major life activities; (2) has a record of such impairment; 
or (3) is regarded as having such an impairment." Edison State 
College understands that it must provide reasonable accommodation 
to the known physical or mental limitations of a qualified applicant, 
employee, and or student with a disability, unless such accommodation

Resources as the ADA Coordinator for applicants, employees and 



61 



students. The Coordinator will oversee and coordinate the College's 
efforts to comply with and carry out its responsibilities pertaining 
to the Act and serve as the contact person for all ADA information,

disagreement. However, when the matter cannot be 
resolved independently, individuals with a disability 
are encouraged to address such instances through the 
following grievance procedure.

procedure for prompt and equitable resolution of 
complaints alleging any actions prohibited by the 
U.S. Department of Justice regulations implementing

student issues. Representatives confer with their advisor on matters of 
student interest and concern and promote the general welfare of the student 
body. All qualified students, including upper-level students, are invited to 
participate in SGA by attending meetings and running for office. Students 
are free, individually and collectively, to express their views on issues of 
College policy and on matters of general interest to the student body. The 
Student Government Association provides a means for participation in 
the formulation and application of College policy affecting academic and 
student affairs with the assistance of the SGA Advisor and the Director of 
Student Life. Proposals for changes in policy, regulations and procedures 
that affect the student body as a whole are to be directed through the SGA 
and its advisor or the Director of Student Life. 

The right of assembly for students is recognized, providing 
that student gatherings do not disrupt or interfere with the orderly 
educational operation of the institution. Such assembly must be in 
compliance with Florida statutes and College policies and procedures. 

Student Identification 

Student ID cards are available to all students. Students should 
carry their ID card with them at all times. The photo ID card is 
required in the Learning Resource Center and in the various academic 
computer laboratories. Photo identification cards are also required 
for student verification at the admissions and registration counters, at 
the Assessment and Testing Center prior to testing, and when selling 
textbooks back to the bookstore. In addition, the student ID card may 
qualify students to discounts in area theaters and businesses.

EFFECTIVE CATALOG POLICY 



The College Catalog is the official document that describes the 
policies, academic programs and requirements for students attending 
Edison State. Students are responsible for knowing and adhering to 
the policies and requirements that affect them. A student's governing 
catalog is the Edison State catalog in effect at the time of the student's 
initial enrollment in credit courses. An Edison State catalog is valid for 
five academic years provided the student is continuously enrolled. A 
student may choose to meet the graduation requirements specified in 
either the catalog in effect at the time of initial enrollment or at the time 
of graduation. Graduation requirements refer to the specific combination 
of general education courses, required core courses, elective courses, and 
any other completion requirements such as passing scores on exams or 
completion of capstone projects. If the prerequisite requirements for any 
course change since the student's time on initial enrollment, the student 
must meet the prerequisites in effect during the term that the student 
registers for the course. 

A student whose enrollment was interrupted for more than one 
year must meet the graduation requirements of the catalog in effect at 
the time of readmission or at the time of graduation. Students entering 
limited-access programs, such as Nursing, must meet the graduation 
requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of entry into the 
limited-access program. Exceptions to the effective catalog policy may 
be necessary if degree requirements change as a result of changes in 
statute, accreditation requirements, or requirements of other regulatory 
agencies to which Edison State College is subject. 

Although Edison State faculty, staff and administrators assist 
students in meeting the requirements for a degree or certificate, it is 
ultimately the student's responsibility to meet those requirements. 
Edison State does not award a degree or certificate until all requirements 
and obligations have been met. Questions regarding application of this 
rule can be directed to the Office of the Registrar. 

Class Attendance 

Students arc expected to attend all class periods of the courses 
for which they are registered. Absence from several meetings of 
a course may result in a lower grade, depending on the professor's 
grading policy. The determination of what constitutes excessive 
absence in any course rests with the professor conducting that course. 
Attendance requirements for a given course are to be found in the 
course syllabus. 

Only those persons enrolled in a class, or those persons who 
have authorization to be in attendance for a particular class, will 
be permitted to attend the class. Authorized persons include: those 
individuals who have enrolled and paid for the class, those persons in 
attendance to assist students identified by the Office of Students with 
Disabilities, and guest speakers. If an unauthorized visitor refuses to 
leave a classroom or laboratory, assistance should be sought from the 
department chair, dean's office, and or Public Safety. 



Class Cancellations 

Edison State attempts to honor its commitment to provide the 
classes scheduled for a given term. However, at times, usually due to low 
enrollment, it may be necessary to cancel a class. In such cases every effort 
will be made to find an appropriate alternate class for the student. 

Religious Observance 

Per Section 1006.53, Florida Statutes, the Edison State College 
policy on observance of religious holy days provides that students 
shall, upon notifying their instructor, be excused from class to 
observe religious holy days of their faith. The student will be held 
responsible for any material covered during the excused absence, but 
will be permitted a reasonable amount of time to complete any work 
missed. Students who feel this policy has been improperly applied may 
have their grievance addressed through the general academic appeals 
process. 

Common Course Syllabus 

The common course syllabus provides students with information 
such as the description of the course, prerequisites, the major topics to 
be covered in the course, and the skills to be mastered as a result of 
taking the course. This information is the same for all sections of the 
course. 

The common course syllabus also provides a detailed description 
of the particular section of the course that a student is enrolled in during 
a particular semester, and includes such information as schedule of 
class meetings and assignments, attendance policies, course materials, 
and scheduled test dates. Students can access generic course syllabi 
from the Edison State College Web site. Looking at common course 
syllabi before enrolling in courses each semester can be helpful because 
they provide more detailed information than a course description 
about what a course requires. Common course syllabi can be found 
at www.edison.edu. Click on the District Administration link on the 
left, then click on the Academic Affairs link, then click on the Course 
Descriptions and Outlines folder link. Common course syllabi arc 
arranged alphabetically by subject area. 

Final Examinations 

The final examination schedule is published online at www. 
edison.edu. It is the student's responsibility to know when and where 
the final examination is scheduled.

STANDARDS OF ACADEMIC PROGRESS 



The purpose of maintaining Standards of Academic Progress 
(SOAP) is to assist Edison State College in identifying and providing 
help to students who are having academic difficulties. The intent 
of SOAP is to inform students that they are not making appropriate 
academic progress. Students are required to meet with an Academic 
Ad\ ising Specialist to discuss ways of improving their academic 
status. 

To complete degree and certificate program requirements, 
students are required to maintain a minimum cumulative grade point 
average (GPA) of "C" (2.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better. The Director of 
Counseling Services sends written notification to each student placed 
on Academic Suspension and or Academic Dismissal. 

1. GOOD ACADEMIC STANDING 

Students are considered in good academic standing if they 
maintain a 2.0 or higher cumulative GPA and earn credit in 
greater that 50 per cent of the total credits attempted. 

2. ACADEMIC WARNING 

Students are considered on academic warning if they have 
attempted 12 credit hours or less with a cumulative GPA 
less than 2.0 or have earned credit in 50 per cent or less of 
total credits attempted. These students should meet with an 
Academic Advising Specialists prior to future registration. 
Academic warning limits a student to (12) credits in fall, 
spring and summer. 

3. ACADEMIC PROBATION 

Students whose cumulative GPA is below 2.0 are placed on 
academic probation. These students are required to meet 
with an Academic Advising Specialists to determine the best 
strategies to improve their academic progress. Academic 
Probation limits a student to nine (°) credits in the fall, spring 
and summer semesters. Students on Academic Probation arc 
placed on suspension if they fail to earn a 2.0 term GPA in the 
following semester. Students could jeopardize their financial 
aid eligibility, scholarship or veteran's benefits. 



5. PROBATION AFTER ACADEMIC SUSPENSION 

Students who reenter Edison State following academic 
suspension are required to work closely with an Academic 
Advising Specialist to develop an appropriate plan to 
improve their academic record. Such measures could be, but 
are not limited to. learning contracts. College Success SLS 
1101. SOAR work shops, and or academic progress reports. 
Probation after Academic Suspension limits a student to 
nine 9 credits in the fall, spring and full summer semesters 
and limits a student to three 3 credits in mini A and mini B 
semesters. Students who fail to maintain or improve their 
current cumulative GPA and fail to achieve a 2.0 GPA in their 
most recent semester arc dismissed for one full academic 
year. 

6. ACADEMIC DISMISSAL 

Students who have been on probation after academic 
suspension and have failed to achieve a 2.0 term GPA are 
dismissed for one full academic year. Students may petition 
their dismissal to continue their enrollment by completing 
an academic petition form obtained from the Advising 
Office or Edison State College website wAvw.edison.edu 
(Refer to the Petitions in the Student Records section for 
more information). Students approved for continuation of 
enrollment through petition will be placed on Probation 
after Dismissal status. Students whose petitions are denied 
are dismissed for one full academic year. At the end of the 
dismissal period, the student must petition for readmission. 
Students who reenter Edison State College following 
academic dismissal arc required to work closely with an 
Academic Specialist to develop an appropriate plan to 
improve their academic record. Such measures could be. but 
arc not limited to. learning contracts. College Success SLS 
1101, SOAR workshops, and or academic progress. 



4. ACADEMIC SUSPENSION 

Students who failed to achieve a 2.0 term GPA while on 
academic probation arc suspended for one semester ( e.g. fall, 
spring, summer). Students may petition their suspension to 
continue their enrollment by completing an academic petition 
form obtained from the Advising Office or on Edison State 
College website, www.edison.edu (Refer to the Petitions in 
the Student Records section for more information. (Students 
approved for continuation of enrollment through petition 
will be placed on Continued Probation after Academic

Maximum Course Attempts 

In accordance with State Board of Education Rule 6A-14.0301, 
students may attempt the same course a maximum of three times at 
Edison State. Enrollment in a course beyond the last day to drop with 
a refund counts as an attempt for the purposes of this rule. Upon the 
third attempt, the student is not permitted to withdraw from the course 
and will receive a grade for the course. Course withdrawals and earned 
grades count toward the maximum attempts. 

Multiple Attempt Course Surcharge 

Florida Statute requires that any student enrolled more than two 
times in the same state-funded undergraduate course, including college 
preparatory courses, be assessed an additional fee per credit hour. 
Students are assessed the additional fee on the third and subsequent 
attempt. Any coursework taken prior to the Fall 1997 semester does 
not count as an attempt when determining course attempts. Only 
coursework repeated at Edison State count in attempts. Transfer 
coursework does not count in the repeat calculation. 

Florida Statute also provides a one-time exception to the surcharge 
based on extenuating circumstances or financial hardship. (Please see 
Petitions in the Student Records section for more information.) 

Course Withdrawal Policy 

A student can withdraw without academic penalty from any 
course in a term by the mid-point of that term. Withdrawals after that 
date may be granted only through established institutional procedures. 
The College Calendar provides information on important dates for 
each semester, such as the last day to withdraw from courses without 
a penalty. 

In order to withdraw from a course or courses, the student must 
complete a request to withdraw from a course. This request can be 
secured in the Counseling Center or Registrar's Office and be turned 
in at the Registrar's Office. 

Students who officially withdraw from a class or classes any time 
prior to the date listed in the College Calendar will receive a grade of 
"W." A student will be limited to two withdrawals per course. Upon the 



third attempt, the student will not be permitted to withdraw, and will 
receive a grade for that course. 

Incomplete Grade Policy 

A grade of "I" is given only when the student has successfully 
completed most of the course in question and. in the judgment of the 
professor, is able to make up any deficit within the assigned time frame. 
A student who receives an "I" must make up the deficiency and have 
the change of grade recorded in the Office of the Registrar no later 
than last day to remove incomplete grades as published in the College 
Catalog. After that, the grade defaults to an "F." The responsibility for 
making the necessary arrangements with a professor for the removal 
of an "I" rests with the student. A student may not register for a class 
in which they have an "I" grade. An incomplete grade may delay 
graduation if requirements have not been met by the end of the term. 

If a professor awarding an "I" is not going to be available the 
following term, it is the responsibility of the professor awarding an 
"I" to make arrangements for the student to deliver the necessary 
completed coursework to a fellow faculty member or the professor's 
supervisor for a change of grade. 

In such a case, it is the professor's responsibility to inform the 
faculty member or supervisor and the student, in writing, what needs 
to be completed in order for the "I" to be changed. The professor 
should provide a copy of the student's grades to date, and describe the 
student's remaining work and final grading procedure. 

In extreme cases where circumstances prevent a professor from 
assigning a grade, final responsibility for the grade change rests with 
the supervisor. 

Grade Corrections 

The responsibility for the evaluation of student coursework and 
the assignment of final grades rests with the professor who has been 
assigned to teach that course. A student who believes that an error 
was made in the assignment of their final grade must contact his or 
her professor by the 28th calendar day after the start of classes in the 
following semester. For example, the student must request the review 
of a grade that was assigned in the Fall Semester by the 28th calendar 
day after the start of Spring classes. 

The professor who assigned the final grade must initiate a 
Change of Grade. The Change of Grade form must be approved by 
the appropriate academic dean and forwarded to the Office of the 
Registrar. 

As a matter of practice, a grade is corrected only in the instance 
where an error was made in the recording of a grade. Under no 
circumstances will an academic dean change a student's grade. In 
rare cases under compelling extenuating circumstances, an academic 
dean may ask a professor to consider changing a grade if it is deemed 
appropriate to do so. 

During the semester professors will communicate directly 
with those students who arc doing unsatisfactory work. Students 
with unsatisfactory performance are encouraged to meet with their 
professors with a view toward improving their work. 



66 - 



Grade Forgiveness Policy 

The Grade Forgiveness Policy permits students to repeat a course 
in an attempt to improve a grade of "D" or "F". A student will be 
limited to two repeats per course, or a total of three attempts. Upon 
the third attempt, the student is not permitted to withdraw from the 
course and the grade assigned is the final grade for the eourse. Course 
withdrawals and earned grades eount toward the maximum attempts. 

Grade forgiveness is automatic, beginning Summer B, 1995, 
for all students who have repeated courses at Edison State College 
Students must complete a Grade Forgiveness Form only if BOTH the 
original and the forgiven grades were awarded in terms or semesters 
previous to Summer B 1995. or if both courses were transferred to 
Edison State from other institutions. 

Students should be aware that some colleges or universities may 
not accept the grade of a repeated course, or may compute grade point 
averages incorporating the grade originally assigned. 



Students receiving financial aid of any type are cautioned to 
check with the Financial Aid Office to ensure that the repeated courses 
will count toward their financial aid award. 

Only the last grade earned in a repeated course will be computed 
into the grade point average at Edison State, provided that the last 
assigned grade is not a "W" or an "X" (Audit). However, all grades 
will appear on the transcript. 

Students may not repeat a course to improve a grade point average 
after the awarding of the Associate degree. 

This policy applies to courses that are repeated for grade 
forgiveness purposes. It does not apply to courses designated as 
repeatable. 

Student requests for a change of grade to a "W" must be 
submitted through a petition for Exception to Registration Policies and 
Procedures. 



67 



OTHER ACADEMIC POLICIES 



Dean's List 

At the conclusion of the Fall and Spring semesters only, the 
Office of the Registrar will generate a list of students completing 12 
or more credits whose grade point average is 3.5 or above, and who 
did not receive any grade below a "C". The list is published after the 
period allowed for students to make up "Incompletes." The Dean's 
List will be posted on each campus, and each student on this list will 
receive a letter noting the accomplishment, signed by the appropriate 
academic officer for each campus. A notation of this accomplishment 
will be made on the transcript of each student so honored. Please note: 
College Preparatory Courses and course beginning with the prefixes 
EAP, PEL, PEM, PEN. and SLS are not considered in calculating 
Dean's List eligibility. 

Latin Honors Graduation Distinction for 
Baccalaureate Students 

Baccalaureate students with a record of academic achievement 
may be considered for Latin honors upon graduation. To graduate with 
a Latin honors distinction, baccalaureate degree candidates must have 
completed a minimum of 39 credit hours of upper division graded 
courscwork at Edison State College and must have earned an overall 
grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher. Latin honors designations 
are conferred according to following scale and are noted on a student's 
official academic transcripts and diploma: 

Cum Laude (with honors): an overall GPA of 3.50, but below 3.70 
Magna Cum Laude (with high honors): an overall GPA of 3.70, 
but below 3.90 

Summa Cum Laude (with highest honors): an overall GPA of 3.90 
or higher 

When determining Latin honors for graduation, the GPA is not 
rounded up (e.g., 3.49 is not rounded up to 3.50 for graduation w ith an 
honors designation). 

Recognition of Latin Honors at 
Commencement: 

Candidates who have accumulated the minimum Latin honors 
CiPA requirements, prior to the term of graduation, will be recognized 
at the commencement ceremony and will be provided with gold 
honors cords. Candidates who will become eligible for honors after 
the current term's grades are recorded will not be recognized at the 
commencement ceremony, but will have the honors designation posted 
on their official academic transcripts and diploma. 



Baccalaureate Regalia: 



Candidates for the baccalaureate degree will dress in the 
traditional black gown. Gold embossed diploma covers will be 
presented to baccalaureate graduates. Tassels for placement on the 
traditional graduation cap will represent the color associated with 
the baccalaureate discipline. The colors associated with the different 
disciplines are as follows: 

Business Drab 

Education Light Blue 

Nursing Apricot 

Public Administration Peacock Blue 

Science Golden Yellow 



Faculty Office Hours 

Hull-time professors are required to schedule a minimum of 
10 hours per week of office hours, during which time they will be 
physically present on campus and available to assist students. The 
scheduling of these office hours is subject to the approval of the 
professor's supervisor but should ideally be distributed over the five 
working days each week. Office hours will be posted on or near faculty 
office doors. Additional office hours beyond the required 1 hours may 
be scheduled, and students may also be seen by appointment. Faculty 
teaching online courses have the same requirements for holding office 
hours, but may hold a portion of their office hours online. 

Part-time professors are required each semester to make 
themselves available for student consultation before or after class. 
They may also make themselves available by appointment, phone, 
voice mail, or e-mail. Availability to students should be appropriately 
noted in the class syllabus. 

Individualized Study 

Individualized Study leads to the completion of a college course 
and the receipt of academic credit. The content of the learning 
experience is completed under the direction of a professor assigned 
to work with the student independently of the normal class schedule. 
While Edison State College recognizes the legitimate need for such 
learning experiences, its policy is to keep this practice to a minimum. 
Individualized Study may be used to complete required courses when 
extenuating circumstances exist as defined by the academic dean. 
Approval must be obtained before the student is allowed to take the 
course. 

Individualized Study courses are permitted for the following 
circumstances: 

1 . A regularly scheduled course is canceled due to insufficient 
enrollment and no alternate course can be taken to meet the 
student's educational goals for that semester. 

2. A student is unable to complete a needed regularly offered 
class due to a documented medical or learning disability, or 
unique work schedule. Appropriate documentation must be 
provided by the student. 

3. A student is in his/her last semester and a course required for 
graduation is not being offered and an appropriate substitute 
is unavailable. 

The request form for Individualized Study is obtained at the 
academic dean's office, or at Edison State's Web page wwvv.edison. 
edu. Click on the District Administration link on the left, then click on 
the Academic Affairs link, then click the Forms link, and click on the 
Word Format link. The Individualized Study form will be on the list of 
forms available for download. The Individualized Study form must be 
completed and submitted to the academic dean prior to the end of the 
drop/add period for the given semester. Once the form is approved, the 
student may register for the class. It is the professor's responsibility to 
prepare the syllabus for each Individualized Study. 

The standard college grading system applies to all Individualized 
Study. Grades earned through Individualized Study have the same 
status as those earned through regular class attendance. 

Word-Processing or Typing Policy 

Students are expected to type or word-process papers presented 
in courses taken for credit. Edison State's basic composition course, 
ENC 1101, requires students to demonstrate competence in the basic 
use of computers, including word processing. The word processing 
of papers is regarded as the norm and is considered good practice 



68 w 



for students transferring to upper-division colleges and universities. 
Students who cannot type are urged to enroll in a keyboarding class, 
or to seek assistance through various options available in Academic- 
Support Programs. 

Student Review of Instruction and Course 
Evaluations 

In order to improve the teaching learning process, further course 
and program development, and encourage faculty professional 
development, it is necessary to gather information regarding 
instructional practices and procedures. Among relevant kinds of 
information is the student's opinion regarding classes he/she is taking. 
Student Review of Instruction and Course Evaluation forms are 
distributed after mid-term examinations. The professor arranges for 
a student in the class to administer the survey and is not to be present 
while the survey is completed. Written comments regarding any aspect 
of instruction in the survey are encouraged. Students are encouraged 
to be as candid and as accurate as possible. Written comments should 
focus on elements that the student thinks can be improved, or on 
elements that were particularly effective or satisfying so that these may 
be retained. 

The person administering the survey should remain in the room 
for questions, collect the survey and materials, seal responses in the 
envelope pro\ ided. and return the envelope to the designated office. 
The survey and the envelope should be checked to verify the semester, 
year, course number, section and professor's name. For those enrolled 
in distance learning, the survey is given to the student by the test 
proctor when the student takes the last proctored exam of the semester. 
Copies of these directions may be obtained from any instructional 
administrator's office. Class averages, other survey results, and 
comments are reviewed by the appropriate instructional supervisor. 

Surveys will be forwarded to the professor after the term is 
completed so the professor may benefit from students' opinions 
reuardinu instruction. 



Student Surveys 



Edison State College will periodically distribute surveys to 
students in order to obtain information useful in evaluating education 
programs, student services and many other aspects of the College 
and its mission. These surveys may be sent by mail, administered 
over the phone, administered by a link to a Web site sent by e-mail. 
or administered in the classroom. They may be administered to a 
cross-section of students, to graduates of particular programs or 
to students enrolled for a short time. Results of student surveys are 
shared with administrators, faculty, the Board of Trustees and with 
students. Findings are reported as summaries of all responses, without 
identifying any particular student. The information is used to identify 
w ays to improve programs and sen ices, and to plan future activities. 
Student participation in surveys ensures that the information gathered 
prov ides an accurate basis for decision-making. 



Textbook Selection Process 

It is the practice of Edison State College to encourage selection of 
the same textbooks for all sections of a particular course. This ensures 
some consistency in the content covered in each course section. The 
College anticipates that, except in unusual circumstances, course 
materials will be adopted for at least one vcar. Committees will meet 
each year to review materials currently in use and to make decisions 
regarding the continued use of course textbooks and materials or the 
adoption of new materials. 

Foreign Language Requirement 

State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.02412 stipulates that all 
undergraduate students who admit to a Florida public university 
must have earned two credits of sequential foreign language at a 
secondary level (high school) or the equivalent of such instruction 
at the post secondary level (2 semesters). The equivalent number of 
college credits in American Sign Language may substitute for the 
foreign language admission requirement. In certain cases students 
may be admitted without the completion of this requirement but must 
satisfy the foreign language requirement prior to graduation from 
the university. This requirement does not apply to students who have 
already earned a baccalaureate degree or those students who entered 
a state university in Florida prior to Fall 1987. (NOTE: some majors 
may have a foreign language graduation requirement in addition to 
admission requirement.) Please consult with the Coordinator of 
Counseling Services or an Academic Advising Specialist about the 
foreign language requirements. 

Edison State College does not require completion of foreign 
language for admission into its baccalaureate degree programs. 
Students much have completed Florida's foreign language requirement 
prior to the completion of a bachelor's degree. Students may beet this 
competency in two ways: 

a. successful completion of two years of a single foreign 
language while in high school (official high school transcripts 
must be submitted to the College registrar), or 

b. successful completion of two semesters ( minimum of 6 credit 
hours) of a single foreign language in a college (or through 
corresponding College Level Examination Program CLEP 
exams). Edison State College may determine standards for 
review of non-traditional foreign language competence for 
languages not available through CLEP (in languages other 
than French. German and Spanish). 

Lifelong Learning Surcharge 

Florida Statute requires that students who enroll in courses that 
were taken previously and passed with a grade of "C" or higher, be 
charged a Lifelong Learning continuous enrollment surcharge. Edison 
State College bills the new course at the out-of-state tuition rate. This 
rule applies even if the original course was transferred to Edison State 
College from an out-of-state school.

ACADEMIC SUPPORT PROGRAMS 



Academic Support Programs 

• College Preparatory Coursework 

• Student Support Services Program 

• Center for Academic Excellence 

• Upward Bound 

• Programs for Students with Disabilities 

• Cultural Diversity 

College Preparatory 
Coursework 

The Florida Legislature created, by statute. College Preparatory 
Programs in all of Florida's community colleges effective July 1. 
1985. All degree and certificate-seeking students are tested prior to 
registration. Edison State recognizes the ACT-E. SAT-R, and FCELPT 
tests for purposes of evaluation. The FCELPT is routinely given to 
entering students. 

Students must present scores on the above tests that have been 
earned within the two (2) years prior to admission to Edison State. 
Further testing on the FCELPT may be necessary if the scores are more 
than two (2) years old. 

Students must enroll in college preparatory communication and 
computation instruction if test scores are below the specific levels. 
(Please sec Assessment Services in the Student Services section for 
more information.) 

Students scoring above the specific scores on the placement test may 
enroll in college credit instruction. Students scoring below the specific 
scores on the placement test are required to enter college preparatory 
instruction. College preparatory instruction docs NOT count toward 
meeting degree requirements. 

Students who test into college preparatory instruction and 
subsequently enroll in college preparatory instruction must 
successfully complete the required college preparatory studies by 
the time they have successfully accumulated 12 hours of college- 
level coursework, or they must maintain continuous enrollment 
in college preparatory coursework each semester until the 
requirements are completed while performing satisfactorily in the 
degree earning coursework. 

Students cannot enroll for more than three ( 3 ) attempts in each course 
to complete college preparatory instruction. Students enrolled in a college 
preparatory course who drop the course after the drop/add period are 
considered to have utilized one of the three attempts allowed to complete 
that course. 

Students who must enroll in the same college preparatory 
course a third time shall pay fees at 100 percent of the full cost of 
instruction. Students who withdraw or fail a class due to extenuating 
circumstances, or who have a financial hardship, may be granted 
an exception to the 100 percent full cost of instruction. (Please see 
Petitions in the Student Records section for more information) Students 
must provide written documentation of financial hardship, disability or 
extenuating circumstances that resulted in the withdrawal or failure. 
Such documentation shall be submitted to the College Registrar for 
consideration. 

Students are permitted to enroll in college preparatory instruction 
concurrently with credit instruction in courses for which they arc 
qualified. College preparatory students may not enroll in the following 
categories of college credit courses while completing their college 
preparatory coursework: 

1 . College preparatory students who are deficient in mathematics 
may not enroll in any college-level mathematics course or 



courses that require mathematics skills beyond the skill level 
of the student. 

2. College preparatory students who are deficient in English 
and/or reading skills may not enroll in English or humanities 
courses that meet the Gordon Rule requirements, or any 
courses that require communication skills beyond the skill 
level of the student.

Credit by Assessment of Prior Learning 
Experience (PLE) 

Students may seek credit for courses required within their degree 
program, based on prior learning, where an accelerated mechanism 
is not defined through statewide articulations, testing or transfer of 
credit. The assessment of learning shall take place through means 
consistent with best practices of measuring college-level learning. 
Assessment methods may include, but are not limited to, written and 
oral examinations, portfolio evaluations, interview assessments, and 
project or product evaluations. Students will be required to submit 
relevant documentation for review by a faculty member in the 
discipline. 

The PLE program is designed to assess prior experiences, translate 
them into college classroom learning outcomes and consequently 
college credits. Learning may result from work experience, 
employment-related training programs and seminars, volunteer work, 
travel, military service, non-accredited college courses, or intensive 
self-directed study. 

Assessment of prior learning will ensure student competency 
in course and program outcomes. If a student can demonstrate prior 
learning from experience, the College will award credit for achievement 
rather than have the student repeat the learning sequence. Information 
concerning such assessments may be secured from the associate dean 
in the discipline area.

Transfer to a State University 

EXCESS HOURS ADVISORY 
STATEMENT 

Section 1009.286, Florida Statutes, establishes an "excess hour" 
surcharge for a student seeking a baccalaureate degree at a state 
university. It is critical that students, including those entering Florida 
colleges, are aware of the potential for additional course fees. 

"Excess hours" are defined as hours that go beyond 120% of the 
hours required for a baccalaureate degree program. For example, if the 
length of the program is 1 20 credit hours, the student may be subject to 
an excess hour surcharge for any credits attempted beyond 144 credit 
hours (120x 120%). 

All students whose educational plan may include earning a 
bachelor's degree should make even,' effort to enroll in and successfully 
complete those courses that are required for their intended major on 
their first attempt. Florida college students intending to transfer to a 
state university should identify a major or "transfer program" early and 
be advised of admission requirements for that program, including the 
approved common prerequisites. Course withdrawals and'or repeats, 
as well as enrollment in courses non-essential to the intended major, 
may contribute to a potential excess hours surcharge.

PROGRAMS OF STUDY 
ASSOCIATE IN ARTS 



The Associate in Arts degree in Florida consists of 60 credit hours 
in two main parts: the general education core, and bachelor's degree 
program prerequisites. The 36-credit hour general education core is 
outlined by the Florida Department of Education, and consists of the 
following five areas of concentration: communication, mathematics, 
social science, humanities, and natural sciences. The remaining 24 
credit hours constitute program prerequisites, which should be chosen 
by the student based on the entrance requirements of the Edison State 
bachelor's degree program, or other college or university bachelor's 
degree program, to which the student will transfer. 

ASSOCIATE IN ARTS DEGREE 
GENERAL EDUCATION PROGRAM 
GUIDE 

General Education Philosophy 

General Education is a program of study that establishes a 
foundation for lifelong learning and prepares students to be thoughtful, 
informed, global citizens. This program fosters academic excellence, 
interdisciplinary dialog, respect for self and others, and social 
responsibility. 

General Education Core Courses 

General Education core courses differ from traditional survey 
courses by integrating a breadth of knowledge and skills essential to a 
complete education and are the foundation of knowledge upon which 
all degrees are built. 

General Education Competencies: 

General Education courses must meet at least four out of the five 
following outcomes. All other courses will meet one or more of these 
outcomes: 

• Communication (COM): To communicate effectively using 
standard English (written or oral). 

• Critical Thinking (CT): To demonstrate skills necessary for 
analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. 

• Technology/Information Management (TIM): To 
demonstrate the skills and use the technology necessary to 
collect, verify, document, and organize information from a 
variety of sources. 

• Global Socio-cultural Responsibility (GSR): To identify, 
describe, and apply responsibilities, core civic beliefs, and 
values present in a diverse society. 

• Scientific and Quantitative Reasoning (QR): To identify 
and apply mathematical and scientific principles and 
methods. 

Associate in Arts students must follow the General Education guide 
below in planning required courses. This guide complies with Southern 
Association of Colleges and Schools' (SACS) Core Requirement 2.7.3 
which requires course distribution in humanities/fine arts, social/ 



behavioral sciences, natural sciences/mathematics; Florida Statute 
1007.25(3) which requires the core curriculum to include subject 
areas of communication, mathematics, social sciences, humanities and 
natural sciences; Rules of the Florida State Board of Education, which 
requires six credits of mathematics and twelve credits (four courses) 
in which writing is heavily emphasized. Additionally, the mathematics 
and writing courses must be passed with a "C" or better.

Note(s): 



For an AA degree, writing intensive courses must be 
completed with a grade of "C" or higher. World Civilization 
courses which are designated as writing intensive (designated 
as "W" in the Schedule of Classes) satisfy the writing 
requirement. 



International Diversity Courses 

Florida State Universities may require students to take courses 
that have an international or diversity focus. These are designated with 
an "I" after the course descriptions. 

Total AA Credit Hours: 60 



ADDITIONAL OPTIONS 
FOR PURSUING A 
BACHELOR'S DEGREE 

The following tips for transfer students are found on the FACTS 
website: 

1 . Students should meet with their academic advisor to discuss 
degree requirements and transfer options. 

2. When applying for admission to a state university, transfer 
students who have not yet completed the AA degree will 
be evaluated on their high school transcripts as well as 
their college coursework. Transfer students without an AA 
degree and less than 60 hours must compete with all entering 
freshman applicants to the college or university. 

3. It is strongly recommended that a student complete the AA 
degree prior to transferring. If this is not possible, students 
are encouraged to at least complete the 36 hour general 
education block at their initial institution. 

4. Students who have entered a community college with a 
"CPT-eligible" certificate of completion must complete the 
AA degree before transferring to a 4-year institution. 

5. Students should check with the transfer services office at 
the college or university to which they are transferring to 
obtain information relating to transfer policies, financial aid 
opportunities and other available assistance. 

6. Students wishing to receive accommodations for a disability 
have a responsibility to inform the disability services center at the 
4-year institution. A student with a disability may be eligible for 
a special admission review under § 1007.265. Florida Statutes. 
A special admission review may apply if documentation can be 
provided that failure to meet an admission requirement is related 
to the disability and failure does not constitute a fundamental 
alteration in the nature of the program. Contact the admissions 
director for more information. 

7. Please note: several AS degrees transfer to discipline related 
BS degrees within the State University system. Please see a 
program advisor for more information. 



CLAS 

All Associate in Arts and Baccalaureate degree-seeking students 
need to satisfy the requirement of the CLAS. 

Foreign Language 

Students seeking admission to the Florida State University System 
should have completed two years of foreign language at the high 
school level or two courses (six to eight credit hours) at the college 
level. Foreign language is a State University System and Edison State 
College baccalaureate level graduation requirement. 



88

ARTS WITH AN 
EARLY CHILDHOOD 
CONCENTRATION

EDISON ONLINE 



Students enrolled at Edison State College have the ability to 
earn their Associate of Arts degree entirely online through the Edison 
Online virtual campus. Classes have been developed in every core 
requirement area of the degree program. Many upper division classes 
are now offered online as well. Students may apply and register online, 
and an interactive chat system with student services and financial aid 
will be available. 

While Edison Online credit courses are academically equivalent 
to on-campus courses, they allow students the opportunity to complete 
their coursework off-campus - anytime, anywhere. This gives the 
student greater flexibility, but can require more self-discipline. 

For additional information please visit: http://online.edison.edu 

Online Courses: Students must have regular access to a computer 
with a high-speed internet connection. Required materials may be 
purchased online through the bookstore. Many professors require 
at least one proctored exam. These may be taken at a testing center 
at any Edison State College campus or at a remote testing center by 
arrangement. 

Blended Learning Courses: Blended courses are a combination 
of classroom and online instruction. A course may be delivered to the 
student using online components such as lectures, labs and streaming 
video as well as print-based material. On-campus sessions will be 
required for orientation, discussion, labs and/or examinations. Students 
must have regular access to a computer with a high-speed internet 
connection. Required materials may be purchased online through the 
bookstore. 

Registering for Edison Online or Blended Courses: The 3-digit 
section number identifies whether a course is online or blended. An 
Edison Online class will have a campus code of EOL with the number 
"7" as the middle digit of the section number. For example. AMH 
2010, Section 171 designates an online American History course. 
A blended class will have the number "8" as the middle digit of the 
section number. For example. AMH 2010. Section 181 designates a 
blended version of the same American History course. 

Interactive Video Physical Therapist 
Assistant Program 

A Physical Therapist Assistant Program is offered in partnership 
with Broward College. This program utilizes interactive video classes 
to be offered simultaneously between Fort Myers and Fort Lauderdale. 
This is a limited access program with the degree awarded by Broward 
College. Admission information is available by calling the Edison

CARDIOVASCULAR TECHNOLOGY, AS 

The Cardiovascular Technology Program is a two year program 
leading to an Associate in Science Degree in Cardiovascular 

Technology. The first year of the program is comprised of both general 
education and core cardiovascular courses. In the second year students 
are concentrating on core didactic, lab and clinical cardiovascular 
courses. Clinical instruction occurs at affiliated hospitals throughout 
Southwest Florida. 

Cardiovascular Technology is an exciting, rewarding and 
relatively new field. Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of 
death in the United States. Advances in technology and the training of 
Cardiovascular Technologists have improved the lives of millions of 
patients. This has resulted in a high demand for our graduates. After 
graduation you will be in demand as a Cardiovascular Technologist 
to work in hospitals and cardiology practices. The demand is high in 
Florida and throughout the United States. 

The Invasive Cardiovascular Technologist is employed in cardiac 
catheterization laboratories (cath labs). Our specialty of invasive 
cardiology will prepare the graduate to function in multiple facets in 
the cardiac catheterization laboratory. Working with a Cardiologist 
they perform sophisticated tests in order to diagnose and quantity 
cardiac disorders. These include coronary artery disease, cardiac 
valve disease or disorders of the heart's electrical conduction 
system. Cardiovascular Technologists perform diagnostic cardiac 
catheterization studies on patients including coronary arteriography, 
hemodynamic monitoring and analysis, and electrophysiology studies. 
They also assist the cardiologist in interventional procedures including 
coronary angioplasty, direct infarct angioplasty, rotablator procedures, 
intra-coronary stenting. paeemakeCdefibrillator insertion and 
radiofrequency ablation. We also offer an elective in echocardiography 
for students who would like a basic foundation in this high demand 
field. 

The Edison State College Cardiovascular Technology Program is 
accredited in invasive cardiology by The Commission on Accreditation 
of Allied Health Education Programs ( www.caahep.org) based on 
the recommendation of the Joint Review Committee on Education in 
Cardiovascular Technology. 

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education 
Programs (CAAHEP) is located at 1361 Park Street. Clearwater. FL 
33756. phone 727-210-2350 ( www.CAAHEP.org). 

Graduates may apply for the invasive cardiology registry 
examination offered by Cardiovascular Credentialing International 
(CCI) for national certification. Upon successful completion of the 
national exam, graduates earn the RCIS (Registered Cardiovascular 
Invasive Specialist) credential. 

A freshman class begins each Fall. Currently 20 freshmen are 
accepted each year. Class size is limited by the number of cardiology- 
laboratories in the clinical affiliates needed for the training of students. 
Students will have the opportunity to practice cardiac catheterization 
procedures in our "on campus"' cath lab prior to entering the clinical 
component of the curriculum. The Cardiovascular Technology Program 
is a "limited" admission program. The criteria for admission arc- 
available through the program office or through the Cardiopulmonary 
Professions office at (239)-433- 6918. Information packets with an 
application to the program may be downloaded by visiting www.

CRIME SCENE TECHNOLOGY. AS 

The Crime Scene Technology program is designed to prepare 
students for employment in fields related to crime scene investigation. 
Students who complete the program will be able to locate, preserve, 
develop, collect, analyze and present physical evidence relating to the 
scene of the crime. Students learn the necessary skills to accurately 
map out, collect and log evidence, develop and preserve fingerprints, 
write reports and present courtroom testimony. Typical industry job 
titles include Crime Scene Technician. Crime Scene Technologist and 
Crime Scene Investigator. 

The program consists of a 28 credit hour college certificate 
(major code PSVC CRST). and a two year, 60 credit hour Associate 
in Science Degree (major code AS CRST). The certificate program is 
designed to provide technical training and will transfer directly intothe 
Crime Scene Technology Associates in Science Degree. Many law 
enforcement agencies require college degrees prior to employment 
and students who do not have law enforcement related experience are 
strongly encouraged to complete the AS degree. Although most crime 
scene technicians in Southwest Florida are law enforcement certified, 
more agencies are beginning to use civilians in these positions. 
Employment opportunities are greatly enhanced by prior experience in 
a law related field. Salary and job opportunities vary with willingness 
to relocate. 

The core crime scene course schedule is designed for the evening 
student. Full time students can complete all coursework in two years. 
In addition to class and laboratory training, upon approval, internship 
opportunities are available that will allow the student to experience first- 
hand the job skills required in the field of crime scene investigation. 

The Associate in Science degree in Crime Scene Technology 
transfers directly into the Edison State College Bachelor of Applied 
Science degree in Public Safety Administration, as well as any public 
Florida college or university's Bachelor of Science degree in Criminal 
Justice. For additional information on Transfer Services, contact the 
department at 239-489-91 32. 

Crime Scene Graduates May 
Earn: 

An entry level worker can expect to earn $23,000 while an 
experienced worker can expect to earn $52,000.* 

There are approximately 50 annual openings in Edison State's 
service district.** 

• Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation Labor Market 
Statistics Center February 2009. 

** 2008-09 Regional Targeted Occupational List Retrieved from 
Florida Agency for Workforce Innovation. 

Program Highlights 

• The nature of crime scene investigation can require physical 
activity. Students enrolled in the Crime Scene Technology 
program must be physically able to go into, under, on top of 
and through many different environmental scenes as part of 
their training. 

• The employment process may include an extensive 
background investigation. A prior criminal history may 
strongly inhibit employment opportunities in this field. 
Potential employers may require some or all of the 
following criteria as part of the employment process:

NURSING RN ADVANCED 
PLACEMENT. AS 

Program Description 

The Associate in Science Degree in Nursing program is designed 
to prepare the student to care for the clients he/she serves. Comprised of 
general education courses, as well as clinical nursing courses, the ADN 
curriculum incorporates classroom instruction, laboratory simulation, 
and clinical practice in the care of infants, children, and adults. Local 
health facilities are utilized for clinical practice, including community 
agencies, acute care institutions, and long-term care facilities. 
Graduates of the program possess the knowledge, values, and skills 
essential to practice in a dynamic and rapidly changing health care 
environment. 

The Advanced Placement Programs are available to students 
who already hold licensure as an LPN, or certification as a paramedic, 
registered respiratory technician (RRT), or cardiovascular technician 
(CVT). Both programs are designed for students who seek immediate 
employment as general staff nurses, as well as for those who decide to 
continue their nursing education by pursuing a baccalaureate degree in 
nursing (BSN). 

Accreditation 

The Edison State College Nursing Program is approved by 
the Florida Board of Nursing, 4052 Bald Cypress Way, Bin C02. 
Tallahassee 32399-3252, phone (850) 488-0595. The Nursing Program 

is also fully accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting 
Commission (NLNAC). 61 Broadway, 33rd Floor, New York, New 
York 10006, phone (800) 669-1656. 

Admission 

The Basic Nursing Program and the Advanced Placement Nursing 
Program are selective admission, limited enrollment programs. 
Admission to Edison State College docs not imply acceptance into 
either Nursing Program. Following admission to the College, the 
student must meet all admission criteria for the Edison State nursing 
program he/she wants to attend before applying to that program. Each 
program has its own admission packet. Since there often are more 
qualified applicants than available spaces, meeting all admission 
criteria does not guarantee acceptance into any of the Nursing 

Programs. 

Final selection of accepted students is made using a point system 
that credits cumulative grade point average (minimum 2.75) in the 
general education prerequisite courses, number of required general 
education courses completed, and standardized preadmission test 
score. 

Applicants with the highest point totals, who meet all criteria, are 
offered admission on a space-available basis. For details regarding the 
admission criteria and point system, refer to the Edison State Nursing 
application packet and/or access the nursing program web pages at 
www.cdison.edu. 

Students are admitted to the Basic Nursing Program on the Lee or 
Collier campuses twice a year. Applicants are admitted to the Charlotte 
Basic Nursing Program once per year. Admission to the Advanced 
Placement Program occurs on each campus annually except Lee which 
admits twice annually. Contact the Nursing Office on the appropriate 
campus for applications, deadline dates, and enrollment limits. 

Under normal circumstances, transfers between campuses are 
prohibited. Should extenuating circumstances arise which are beyond 
the student's control, transfer requests will be considered on a case-by- 
case basis by a committee comprised of either the Basic or Advanced 



Placement Program Coordinators and the District Director of Nursing. 
All requests for transfer must include supporting documentation. 

The admission and enrollment process includes completion of 
health certificate, AHA CPR certificate, drug screen and criminal 
background check. 



Transfer Applicants 

Applicants who have attended another RN program in the past 
year may apply for admission to the Edison State College nursing 
programs, provided that they supply a letter of good standing from 
the director(s) of previous nursing program(s). The transfer applicant 
must meet the same admission criteria as any other nursing applicant. 
Students who have been academically dismissed from another 

nursing program are not eligible to apply to Edison State's 
Nursing Programs. 

All nursing coursework taken elsewhere and at Edison State 
College must be completed within 3.5 years (from the first nursing 
course taken to graduation from Edison State College). Nursing 
courses older than one year will not be accepted for transfer. 

Transcripts must be evaluated by both the Nursing Director and 
the Records Technician at Edison State's Registration Department prior 
to acceptance as an Edison State transfer nursing student. In order for 
transcripts to be evaluated, complete syllabi from all previously taken 
nursing courses must accompany the application. Any transfer nursing 
student must complete a minimum of 1 8 credit hours at Edison State 
in order to graduate from Edison State's ADN program.

CRIME SCENE TECHNOLOGY 
CERTIFICATE 

The Crime Scene Technology Certificate is designed to prepare 
students for employment in fields related to crime scene investigation. 
Those who complete the program will be able to locate, preserve, 
develop, collect, analyze and present physical evidence relating to the 
scene of the crime. Students learn the necessary skills to accurately 
map out, collect and log evidence, develop and preserve fingerprints, 
write reports, and present courtroom testimony. Typical industry job 
titles include Crime Scene Technician or Crime Scene Technologist. 

The Crime Scene Technology program consists of a 2X credit 
hour college certificate (major code PSVC CRST) and a two year (60 
credit hour) associate in science degree (major code AS CRST). The 
certificate program is designed to provide technical training and will 
transfer directly into the Crime Scene Technology Associate in Science 
degree. As many law enforcement agencies require college degrees 
prior to employment, students that do not have law enforcement 
related experience are strongly encouraged to complete the AS degree 
program. Although many crime scene technicians in Southwest 
Florida are law enforcement certified, more agencies are beginning 
to use civilians in this position. Employment opportunities are greatly 
enhanced by prior experience in a law related field. Salary and job 
opportunities vary with willingness to relocate. 

The core crime scene course schedule is designed for the evening 
student. Full time students can complete all coursework for the 
certificate program in one year. In addition to class and laboratory 
training, upon approval, internship opportunities are available that will 
allow the student to experience first- hand the job skills required in the 
field of crime scene investigation. 

Florida certified law enforcement and/or corrections officers may 
qualify for the award of specified courses and elective credit, based on 
the successful completion of the state exam. Please see the Program 
Advisor or the Criminal Justice Academy Bridge Program for details. 

Contact the Law and Public Sen ice Program Office at (239)-489- 
9132. Specific program information, including course schedules and 
degree audit forms can be found at http://www.cdison.edu/academics/ 
ccrtcrimesccne/crimcscencccrt.php 



Continuing Toward a Bachelor's Degree? 

Students intending to continue toward a Bachelor's degree are 
encouraged to consult with their transfer school prior to choosing their 
Associate's Degree and/or elective coursework. Contact the Edison 
State College Law and Public Service Program Office at (239)-489- 
9132, or go to www.edison.edu for current information on Bachelor's 
degree partnerships with Edison State College. The Associate in 
Science degree in Crime Scene Technology transfers directly into the 
Edison State College Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Public 
Safety Administration. 



Crime Scene Technology Graduates May 
Earn: 

An entry level worker can expect to earn $23,000 while an 
experienced worker can expect to earn $52,000.

The School of Education at Edison State College offers pathways for 
candidates interested in working in educational settings from birth 
to high school. All programs focus on preparing candidates for their 
roles as a positive and engaging educational practitioner. It is through 
transformational education initiatives that focus on social justice and 
practical experiences that teacher candidates will learn to educate in 
today's diverse classrooms. The School of Education offers rigorous 
and demanding education programs. Setting high expectations and 
requiring all teacher candidates meet these expectations, enables 
teacher candidates to glean the knowledge and skills needed to be 
successful educators. Teacher candidates will graduate from the 
School of Education's Elementary Education program certified with 
both Reading and ESOL endorsements. The Middle and Secondary 
programs offer the minimum state required hours needed for meeting 
Reading and ESOL competencies. 

Faculty and staff continually strive towards excellence in preparing 
candidates to work in diverse environments. Through the School of 
Education, teacher candidates will have the ability to build a strong 
sense of community and support amongst students and faculty. 

Teacher candidates engage in diverse field experiences at the onset 
of every program and continue honing their pedagogical skills and 
knowledge throughout the program. Teacher candidates arc assessed 
on their knowledge, dispositions and performance throughout each of 
the education programs. 



COOP FIELD EXPERIENCE MODEL 

The School of Education prepares individuals to work in diverse 
learning environments in the professional field of education. In 
accordance with state and national standards, teacher education 
candidates at Edison State College arc assessed on their knowledge, 
dispositions, and performance. The CoOP model of Field Experience 
enhances pre-service teacher education by empowering quality k-12 
teachers to mentor teacher candidates through the three phases of field 
experience: foundation, practicum, or internship. CoOP mentors play 
a vital role in the development and preparation of high quality teacher 
candidates. 

Edison's innovative model of field experience minimizes disruptions 
to the k-12 classroom setting caused by faculty supervisor visitations 
and sanctions "teachers as leaders". The School of Education provides 
training for teachers interested in mentoring our teacher candidates. 
Once teachers have met the CoOP criteria, they will be added to our 
database and can request that Edison teacher candidates be placed in 
their classroom for any one of the three phases of field experience. The 
three state mandated classroom observations, as well as the mentoring 
during co-teaching experiences, will be conducted by the "trained" k- 1 2 
teachers. Edison faculty in consultation with Coordinator of Assessment 
and Student Success and the field experience office will serve as 
counselors, resource personnel, and liaisons for teacher candidates and 
mentor teachers. It is our goal to support the k-12 mentor teachers, as 
well as our teacher candidates through open communication, resource 
and information sharing, and curricula alignment. The k-12 teachers 
are the experts in their field. Allowing them to share their expertise 
and providing a platform for shared best practices benefits the k-12 
student, as well as teacher candidates. 

In applying to the CoOP, mentors agree to work with teacher candidates 
during any of the three field base components: foundations, practicum 
or internship hours. Mentors are responsible for (but not limited to) 
the following: 

• Completing all necessary training (including, but not limited to. 
FLDOE Clinical Educator Training, and Edison's Field Experience 
Mentor Teacher Training) 

• Documentation of teacher candidate with regards to knowledge of 
content area, performance, and disposition 

• Observation and conferencing with candidate, as required with 
Clinical Education Training 

• Providing teacher candidates with on-going support, guidance and 
strategies to become effective teachers 

• Regularly communicating with college faculty and/or field 
experience coordinator 

Mentor teachers arc expected to be sensitive to the needs and concerns 
of teacher candidates while maintaining a positive k-12 co-teaching 
learning environment. Persons interested in becoming mentor teachers 
should contact Christy Duda at cduda@edison.edu.

CANDIDATE DISPOSITION 
ASSESSMENT PROCESS 

The School ofEducation prepares individuals to work in diverse learning 
environments in the professional field of education. In accordance 
with state and national standards, teacher education candidates at 
Edison College are assessed on their knowledge, dispositions, and 
performance. Know ledge assessment occurs primarily through courses 
and is reflected in course grades and the candidate's grade point average 
(GPA). The Honda Teacher Competency Exams also demonstrate a 
candidate's acquisition of know ledge. Performance is assessed through 
the candidate's classroom practice, particularly the student teaching 
experiences. Dispositions arc assessed by the disposition assessment 
process described herein. The assessment of dispositions takes place 
at all times while students are on campus and during student teaching. 
According to the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher 
Education (NCATE), "NCATE expects institutions to assess teacher 
candidate dispositions based on observable behavior in the classroom. 
NCATE does not recommend that attitudes be evaluated." Dispositions 
shall be assessed under the premise of educational equity and the belief 
that all students can learn. 

Prospective teachers must be able to demonstrate that they are 
individuals of strong moral character who can make mature decisions. 
Teachers are responsible for the education, safety, and well-being 
of anyone in their charge. As such, students enrolled in Edison 
State College's education programs must adhere to the Principles of 
Professional Conduct for the Education Profession in Florida, 6B- 
1.006. All teacher education candidates, faculty, staff and academic 
advisors will be provided with a copy of the Principles of Professional 
Conduct for Florida Educators. Dispositions to be Assessed, and a 
Disposition Assessment Form. Furthermore, a signed contract must 
be on file for every teacher candidate prior to enrolling in any course 
requiring field experience components. Candidates who do not have 
such forms on file are subject to appropriate violations of disposition 
procedures as stated in this process policy. 

This process shall apply to candidates' dispositions as reflected in field 
experience and related course work. Candidates will be made aware 
that repeated violations of these dispositions will constitute grounds 
for a decision regarding separation from the Education programs 
of Edison State College. This information will also be published in 
appropriate teacher education documents and reinforced throughout 
the program. 

PROCEDURE FOR ADDRESSING 
DISPOSITION PROBLEMS: 

The Disposition Assessment Form (Form D-2) may be utilized by all 
faculty, staff and classroom teachers to bring a deficiency with regard 
to professional conduct to the attention of the Associate Dean and 
possibly escalate to the Teacher Education Council of Special Cases 
Committee. The C oordinator of Assessment and Student Success will 
monitor each candidate's folder to ascertain if a D-2 form has been 
issued to the candidates by a faculty member, staff or mentor teacher. If 
two D-2 submissions have been submitted, the faculty advisor and or 
field placement coordinator will send notice to the Associate Dean of 
the School of Education. The Associate Dean will schedule a meeting 
with the candidate, the Coordinator of Assessment and Student 
Success, the course instructor and/or mentor teacher. The deficiency 
observed will be discussed with the individual within 14 days of the 



D-2 form being submitted. (If notification of the second D-2 form 
falls at the end of a term, the Associate Dean will schedule a meeting 
within 14 days after the beginning of the next full term in which the 
candidate is enrolled.) If the meeting determines that a dispositional 
issue does exist, a list of actions that the candidate agrees to follow will 
be prepared in memo form, and both the candidate and Associate Dean 
w ill sign the agreed course of action to be taken. A copy of actions will 
be placed in the candidate's file. The candidate may also submit an 
additional statement to be included in the record. 

If a candidate receives a D-2 form for a third separate incident, the 
Coordinator of Assessment and Student Success will notify the 
Associate Dean w ithin 14 days of the filing. The Associate Dean 
will notify the candidate of any future action to be taken. The 
decision to submit to the Teacher Education Council of Special Cases 
Committee may be warranted and action will be taken according to 
the deficiency. 

The candidate will be asked to provide any information he/she 
wishes regarding the three D-2 forms in writing to the Special Cases 
Committee. D-2 forms submitted to the Special Cases Committee 
will be reviewed bi- monthly unless the offense or defense warrants 
immediate action. The Special Cases Committee shall provide one 
of three rulings to the Associate Dean of the School ofEducation: 
continue in the program, removal from the program, or not enough 
evidence was provided to make a recommendation in which case the 
committee may request further information from prior faculty, mentor 
teachers, or peers. Within 14 days of receiving the recommendation 
from the Special Cases Committee, the Associate Dean of the School 
of Education shall affirm or negate the committee's decision on the 
case and notify all parties involved including candidate, academic 
advisor, department head, mentor teacher, and involved faculty. 
The teacher candidate may appeal the affirmed decision to the Vice 
President of Academic Affairs within five days of receiving notice of 
the committee's decision. 

EGREGIOUS VIOLATIONS OF 
DISPOSITIONAL STANDARDS 

A candidate may be subject to expedited dismissal from the School 
ofEducation for an egregious violation of dispositional standard. 
Examples of possible egregious violations include, but are not limited 
to: engaging in illegal or unethical conduct involving minor children 
or conduct which would be grounds for dismissal from a teaching 
position, mishandling of private and confidential student information, 
and serious violations of Principles of Professional Conduct for the 
Education Profession in Florida 68- 1 -006.
