History 



Edison Community College celebrates 37 years of service to Southwest Florida this year. Since the first students were 
admitted to Edison in the fall of 1962, the college has enrolled more than 150,000 students in credit courses. Associate in 
Arts and Associate in Science degrees are offered at Edison as well as one-year certificate programs. 

From its first quarters in the old Gwyne Institute Building in downtown Fort Myers, Edison moved to its permanent 
135-acre campus in South Lee County in June 1965. Following a master plan designed to provide for growth and future 
needs, the Lee County Campus now includes eight permanent structures and the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall to 
meet the needs of students and a growing community. 

Edison's Collier County Campus opened in March of 1992. The beautiful campus is located on a 50-acre site near State 
Road 951 and Rattlesnake Hammock Road, in east Naples. The Charlotte County Campus opened in 1997. Located on a 
wooded site on Airport Road in Punta Gorda, the campus is an excellent addition to the Charlotte area. 

Edison receives its funding primarily from the State of Florida. Student fees and federal grants provide approximately 
one-third of the college budget, with individual and private grants supplementing the nearly two-thirds provided by state 
sources. The Edison Community College Foundation, Inc., provides more than $500,000 per year in aid to Edison students 
and programs. 

Edison Community College is governed by its District Board of Trustees composed of nine representatives of Charlotte, 
Collier, Hendry, Glades and Lee Counties. The members are appointed to four-year terms by the Governor of Florida. 
Currently about 450 professional and support staff members provide the full-time instructional and support services for the 
more than 14,000 credit and 16,000 non-credit students who participate in Edison courses and programs each year. 




Lee County Campus 



The Lee County Campus is located on approximately 135 acres between College Parkway and Cypress Lake Drive in 
South Lee County. Courses of study leading to Associate in Arts, Associate in Science, or Certificate programs, as well as 
non-credit Continuing Education classes are offered at the Lee County Campus. The first permanent location of the college, 
the Lee County Campus, was constructed in 1965. The campus is made up of one- and two-story classroom buildings includ- 
ing: library; bookstore; cafeteria; student center; auditorium; and specialized laboratories for science, computer science, 
nursing, health technologies, and college preparatory classes. The Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall, the Gallery of 
Fine Art, and the Kulakowski Observatory are located on the Lee County Campus.

Non-Degree-Seeking Students 

1 . High School graduation with a standard diploma or a 
GED is required to enroll in credit courses. 

2. A non-degree-seeking student is defined as a student 
who does not intend to earn a degree at Edison Com- 
munity College. 

3. If non-degree-seeking students wish to change degree- 
seeking status, they must meet admissions require- 
ments for the program or degree to which they wish

specific program so long as they remain in this status. 
However, these students must meet all course pre- 
requisites for any courses taken. 

5. All English composifion and mathematics courses 
require testing. 

NOTE: Non-degree students are limited regarding finan-

Transient Students 

Students enrolling at Edison Community College who

REGISTRATION 

Edison Community College registration for enrollment 
in credit courses may be accomplished by on-line touch tone 
telephone (REGGIE), in person at our three campuses and

Schedule of Classes is published each semester. The Sched- 
ule is available in all Student Services Offices on the college 
campuses, and on the Internet at http://www.edison.edu. 

Please refer to the academic calendar for registration 
dates. Separate registration periods are set for continuing 
and returning students, new degree-seeking students and 
new non-degree-seeking students. There are several other 
important registration dates for drop and add, refunds, and 
withdrawal without academic penalty. These dates are also 
set in the Academic Calendar. This Calendar is published 
in this Catalog and in each Schedule of Classes. 

Drop/Add Periods 

Drop and add periods begin with each registration 
period. The end of drop and add coincides with the last day 
for refund. These dates are published in the College Catalog 
and in the Schedule of Classes. The policy for the end of 
drop and add period is as follows: 

Semester ( 1 6 week major term) - The first five weekdays 
after classes begin, including the first day of classes. 

Summer A and B (7 and 6 week term) - The first three 
weekdays after classes begin, including the first day of 
classes. 

Mimi-Semester (8 week term) - The first three week- 
days after classes begin, including the first day of classes. 

When a semester and a mini-semester begin on the 
same day the drop and add period will end on the day, 
as published in the College Catalog. 

Late start classes are those which begin after the pub- 
lished drop and add dates for the major terms and sub- 
terms. The drop and add period for late start classes 
which meet on three (3) or more days ends the day 
before the second scheduled class meeting.

ferring into the College by a Florida state post- 
secondary institution will be recognized by Edison 
Community College.

the substitution request(s) or determination of ineligi- 
bility to the appropriate Dean, or Provost. If the issue 
is not resolved at that level, the student may then

NOTIFICATION OF STUDENT'S RIGHTS 
UNDER FAMILY EDUCATIONAL 
RIGHTS AND PRIVACY ACT 

(Public Law 93-380 Buckley Amendment) 

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

1 . The right to inspect and review the student's educadon 
record within 45 days of the College receiving a 
request for access. Students should submit to the 
Registrar, Dean, Department Chairperson, or other 
appropriate official, a written request that identifies 
the record(s) they wish to inspect. The College official 
will arrange for access and notify the student of the 
time and place where they may inspect the records. If 
the records are not maintained by the College official 
to whom the request was submitted, that official will 
advise the student of the correct official to whom they 
should address the request. 

2. The right to request the amendment of the student's 
education records that the student believes are inaccu- 
rate or misleading. Students should submit to the 
College official responsible for the record, a written 
request clearly identifying the part of the record they 
want changed, and specifying why it is inaccurate or 
misleading. The College will notify the student if it 
decides not to amend the record as requested by the 
student. The College will advise the student of their 
right to a hearing regarding the request for amend- 
ment. The College will provide additional information 
regarding the hearing procedures to the student when 
notified of the right to a hearing. 

3. The right to consent to disclosures of personally iden- 
tifiable informadon contained in the student's educa- 
tion record, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes 
disclosure without consent. One excepdon that permits 



disclosure without consent is the disclosure to school 
officials with legitimate educational interests. A school 
official is a person employed by the College in an 
administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or 
support staff position (including law enforcement unit 
personnel and health stafQ, a person or company with 
whom the College has contracted (such as an attorney, 
auditor, or collection agent), a person serving on the 
Board of Trustees, or a student serving on an official 
committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance com- 
mittee, or assisfing another school official in perform- 
ing their tasks. 



4. 



A school official has legitimate educational interests if 

the official needs to review an educational record to 

fulfill their professional responsibility. 

Upon request, the College discloses education records 

without consent to officials of another school(s) in 

which a student seeks or intends to enroll. 

The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department 

of Education concerning alleged failures by the 

College to comply with the requirements of FERPA.

Residency Rules/Guidelines 



This is a summary of the Florida Community College 
Residency Manual. Authority: Florida Statute 240.1201, 
Florida Administrative Code 6A-10 and Florida Commu- 
nity College Residency Guidelines. 

The State Board of Community Colleges and Board of 
Regents shall maintain consistent policies and practices for 
the classification of students as resident for tuition purposes. 

Edi.son Community College admissions procedure 
(which is reciprocal among all state colleges and universi- 
ties for each student) includes determination of residency 
for tuition purposes. 

Once a student has been classified by a public institu- 
tion, institutions to which they may transfer are not required 
to re-evaluate the classification unless inconsistent infor- 
mation suggests that an erroneous classification was made 
or the student's situation has changed. 

Florida residency law includes a basic provision for 
12 month legal residency, including physical presence in 
Florida, prior to the first day of classes for the term residency 
is sought. The following circumstances must be reviewed: 

1. Physical presence 

2. Intent 

3. Dependence/Independence 

NOTE: The student who comes to Florida for continuous 
full-time enrollment in a public college/university 
will NOT normally become a Florida resident for 
tuition purposes regardless of the length of time 
enrolled. Continuous enrollment implies enrollment 
in at least two terms per 12 months period. 

Presumptions or Exceptions: 

1 . Persons married to legal Florida residents may claim 
the Florida residency of the spouse, provided that they 
are domiciled in Florida and intend to make Florida 
their home; 

2. Active duty members of the armed services stationed 
in Florida (and spouse/dependent children) or military 
personnel not stationed in Florida whose home of record 
or state of legal residence certificate, DD Form 2058. 
is Florida (and spouse/dependent children); 

3. Full-time instructional and administrative personnel 
employed by the State public school system, commu- 
nity colleges and institutions of higher education (and 
spouse/dependent children); 

4. Dependent children residing with a legal resident adult 
relative, other than the parent, for at least five years. 

5. A dependent child whose parents are divorced, sepa- 
rated, or otherwise living apart, will be considered a 
resident for tuition purposes if either parent is a legal 
resident of Florida, regardless of which parent claims 
the minor for tax purpo.ses; 

6. Persons who were enrolled as Florida residents for 
tuition purposes at a Florida in.stitution of higher edu- 
cation, but who abandon Florida residency and then 



re-enroll in Florida within 12 months of the aban- 
donment; 

7. Students from Latin America and the Caribbean who 
receive scholarships from the federal or state govern- 
ment. The student must attend, on a full-time basis, a 
Florida institution of higher education. 

8. United States citizens living on the Isthmus of Panama, 
who have completed 12 consecutive months of college 
work at the Florida State University Panama Canal 
Branch, and their spouses and dependents. 

9. Southern Regional Educational Board's Academic

state universities; 

1 0. Full-time employees of state agencies or political sub- 
divisions of the state when the student fees are paid by 
the state agency or political subdivision for the pur- 
pose of job related law enforcement or corrections 
training;

24 



8. Residency statement is not completed or is completed 

incorrectly. 

When an application is inconsistent, the Office of the 
Registrar staff will contact the applicant and advise that they 
will be classified as non-resident for tuition purposes begin- 
ning with the next session until the applicant supplies hard 
copy evidence of legal Florida residency as outlined below. 

Evidence to be Required 

The following hard copy documentation may be requested, 
considered, accepted and/or subsequently recorded on a check- 
list as evidence of establishing a legal residence in Florida. 
At least one of the following documents must be dated at 
least 12 months before the first day of classes and presented 
before classes begin. 

NO SINGLE DOCUMENT SHALL BE CONCLUSIVE 

1 . Proof of purchase of permanent Florida home; 

2. Professional/occupational license in Florida; 

3. Full-time, non-temporary employment in Florida; 

4. Part-time permanent employment in Florida; 

5. Proof of acceptance of permanent employment in 
Florida; 

6. Florida Incorporation; 

7. Florida Voter's Registration; 

8. Declaration of Domicile in Florida; 

9. Florida Vehicle Registration; 

10. Florida Driver's License; 

1 1 . Documentation from a financial institution showing 
establishment of an account; 

12. Classification as a Florida resident at another Florida 
public college or university. 



Reclassification 

Established procedures will be followed in reclassify- 
ing students from non-Florida to Florida residents and for 
Florida residents who have subsequently lost their resi- 
dency status. 

All requests for change of residency and supporting 
hard copy documentation will be examined by the Office 
of the Registrar. Office of the Registrar staff are authorized 
to make prospective residency determinations as of the 
term for which applications for reclassification are made. 

It is important to understand that living in or attending 
school in Florida is not sufficient evidence to establish res- 
idency for tuition purposes. Students must show that they 
were in Florida to maintain a bona fide domicile. 

The following list of hard copy evidence may be 
accepted and considered and filed or recorded on a resi- 
dency checklist as evidence of establishing legal residence 
in Florida. Reclassification of residency must be requested 
and documented before the published first day of classes 
for the semester in which reclassification is requested. 

1. Independent students, if appropriate, obtain parent/ 
student tax returns, employment records, bank accounts, 
etc., and at least one document of legal residency 
dated at least 12 months before the term for which 
legal residency is sought. (See previous list of accept- 
able evidence.) 

2. Dependent students, if dependent on a Florida resident 
parent/legal guardian, obtain from parent/legal guardian: 
a) proof of dependent status and b) at least one docu- 
ment of legal residency pertaining to the parent/legal 
guardian which is dated 1 2 months before the first day 
of classes, (see previous list of acceptable evidence). 

3. Students seeking reclassificafion under an exceptional 
category, require and file or record hard copy docu- 
mentation appropriate to the particular category (e.g. 
marriage certificate, military orders, teaching con- 
tract, etc.).

Student Financial Information/Financial Aid 



The staff of the Office of Student Financial Aid pro- 
vides financial assistance to qualified students to attend 
Edison. They administer the Work Study Program for stu- 
dent employment, the federal education grants (PELL and 
FSEOG) and numerous other scholarships and loans pro- 
vided by individuals, organizations and the Edison Com- 
munity College Foundation. Application for all types of 
student financial assistance should be made at the Financial 
Aid Office on any Edison Campus. Information brochures 
and applications are available at all locations. 

Financial Information 

— Students or parents wishing to make payment by 
check should make them payable to Edison Commu- 
nity College for the amount of fees. Visa and Master 
Card credit cards are also accepted at the Cashier's 
Office or through the telephone registration system 
"REGGIE". 

— Veterans who are eligible to receive monthly educa- 
tional benefits should be prepared to meet ALL expenses 
since the first checks are often delayed until after a 
semester is in session. 

— The college reserves the right to withhold students 
from classes, final examinations, and graduation unless 
fees are paid in full. No grades, degrees, statements of 
honorable dismissal, or transcript of credits will be 
issued until safisfactory settlement of college fees and 
other financial obligations have been met. This includes 
loans to students. 

— Limited tuition loans are available with a minimum 
service charge. Application for such funds must be 
made through the Financial Aid Office. 

— The cost of books and supplies varies with the pro- 
gram of each student. 

— The college reserves the right to change its fees at any 
time without notice. 

Refund Policy 

— Refunds of matriculation and tuition fees are made 
only if official drop or withdrawal forms are turned in 
at the Registrar's Office by the published deadlines 
(see calendar), or if you drop via REGGIE (and the 
drop is confirmed) by the deadline. 

— If the student withdraws from the College because of 
administrative action or for the convenience of the 
College, except for disciplinary reasons, the student is 
entitled to a full refund of matriculation, tuition fees 
and special fees. 

— If the student is dropped from a class due to cancella- 
tion of that class, the student is entitled to a full refund 
of matriculation, tuition fees and special fees. 



— If the student is withdrawn from a course or courses 
for disciplinary reasons, the student is not entitled to a 
refund of matriculation, tuition or special fees. 

— Refund checks are mailed as soon as possible after the 
refund deadline and should be received within 30 days 
after the start of classes. 

Financial Aid 

Students are encouraged to come to the Financial Aid 
Office for assistance in planning the financing of their col- 
lege education. A variety of resources are available to help 
those who without such help, would be unable to attend 
college. Assistance is awarded to students enrolled for six 
or more credit hours in Fall and Spring sessions on the basis 
of financial need, scholastic achievement, and character. 
Applications for assistance received after May 1, 1998 will 
be considered only if funds are available. In order to remain 
eligible for scholarships, work-study, loans and grants, a stu- 
dent must successfully meet the requirements of the Stan- 
dards of Academic Progress for Financial Aid recipients. 

Work Study Programs 

Students enrolled for six or more hours in the Fall and 
Spring Sessions who meet federal requirements of finan- 
cial need, and who are capable of maintaining adequate 
grade averages may be employed in part-time jobs to help 
meet expenses. These jobs are available on campus. The col- 
lege is an equal opportunity employer. Off campus employ- 
ment opportunities for community service are also available. 

Loans 

Edison Community College Loan Fund: The college 
makes available a short-term loan fund to enable students 
to pay their tuition fees. Apply through the Financial Aid 
Office. A small service fee will be charged. The loan bal- 
ance is due on a date set by the Financial Aid Office before 
registration begins for the next semester. 

Federal Family Education Loan: These long-term 
loans are made through area banks and financial institutions 
with certificafion of eligibility by the Financial Aid Office. 

GRANTS 

Federal Pell: These grants are provided by the Federal 
government to students with financial need. Students enrolled 
less than half-time may be eligible for this program. 

Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant 
(FSEOG): Provided by the federal government to students 
with certified financial need. 

Florida Student Assistance Grant (FSAG): Awarded 
to full-time students with financial need who are Florida 
residents. 



28 



Standards of Progress for Students 
on Financial Aid 

Students awarded financial aid must meet the follow- 
ing academic standards each academic term: 

1. "Good Standing" for purposes of Financial Aid: 

For Full-time students — 2.0 GPA for 12 credit 

hours — (minimum) 

For Part-time students — 2.0 GPA for all credit hours 

2. "Not in Good Standing": 

Students who receive withdrawals ("W"'s) or audits 
("X"'s) 

3. Incomplete grades (I's) must be completed to total 
12 credit hours with a 2.0 grade point average before 
financial aid may be awarded. 

4. All students must complete their academic program 
within 90 attempted credit hours. Exceptions must be 
approved by the Financial Aid Director based on mit- 
igating circumstances. 

5. If a student does not meet standards of progress for a 
session, an appeal must be made by petition to the 
Office of Student Financial Aid to be considered for 
financial aid for the next session. If approved, the stu- 
dent must meet standards of progress for the next ses- 
sion. An intervening session of satisfactory work 
clears a student for financial aid. 

6. A student who has not maintained Standards of Aca- 
demic Progress and has registered for a future session 
but not paid the fees for that session may: 

a) Pay the fees for the session; 

b) Officially withdraw from some or all of their 
courses with no financial liability. 

Student Fees 

In the event of financial need, an application for loan 
funds may be made to the Financial Aid Office. Student 
fees are payable by the date shown on fee schedules. 

Veterans Educational Benefits 

The Financial Aid Office, Lee County Campus, serves as 
the Veterans' Affairs Office for Edison Community College. 

If you are a veteran or a dependent of a veteran and are 
eligible for educafional benefits, you should: 

Contact the Veterans Specialist well in advance of 

enrollment to process eligibility forms. 

Apply for admission as a degree-seeking student 

Submit the Certificafion of Eligibility or a copy or 

your DD-214 (separafion paper) to the Veterans 
Specialist for cerufication of enrollment. Submit 
additional forms if requested for certification to the 
Veterans Specialist. 

Contact the Veterans Specialist each time you change 

course schedule, register for classes each semester, 
or change degree program. 

All veterans continuing enrollment for a following 

term should contact the Veterans Affairs Office 
with schedule and fee receipt as soon as possible 
before the beginning of the next term. 



National Guard Fee Waiver 

Recommended National Guard enlistees may be eligi- 
ble to receive a fee waiver. Contact your National Guard 
Education Officer. Eligibility for the waiver must be 
processed by the Veterans Specialist, Financial Aid Office, 
Lee County Campus. 

Veterans Dependents 

Wives, widows, or dependents of deceased or 100% 
disabled veterans should contact the Veterans Affairs Office 
for the appropriate forms. 

Veteran Transfer Students 

A transfer student must have a transcript from the pre- 
vious college forwarded to Edison Community College 
before transferring. The VA must know how many credits 
are accepted by the college. The student's certification will 
not be processed by the VA office until the transcript is 
received and evaluated by Edison. Failure to have the cer- 
tification forwarded will delay the veteran's benefit check. 

Approved VA Programs 

The student must be working toward an approved 
degree in order to receive VA benefits. Check with the col- 
lege Counseling or Advising Centers to ensure that the 
classes you plan to take are correct 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 stu- 
dent received an "F" in that course, or a "D" when a "C" 
is required. 

Deferment of T\iition 

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. 

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. Professors can 
and will withdraw students from classes for excessive 
absences; 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 

Veterans must maintain a "C" (2.0) grade point aver- 
age 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 benefits will be terminated by the VA.

ACADEMIC POUCIES 

& 
PROCEDUKES 



33 



Academic Calendar 

Edison's academic calendar is developed to comply 
with State Board of Education (SBE) Rule 6A-10.019, 
Florida Administrative Code (FAC). The academic year is 
comprised of 220 days: a Summer B Session of 35 days; 
a Fall Semester of 75 days; a Spring Semester of 75 days; 
and a Summer A Session of 35 days. The Fall Semester is 
scheduled to begin within the first three weekdays after 
August 22; the Spring Semester within the first three 
weekdays after January 4; and Summer A within the first 
three weekdays after May 5. Although Summer B does not 
have a state-defined start date, it is, in effect, defined by the 
start dates of the other sessions. 

In the Fall Semester of each year the Registrar's Office 
drafts an academic calendar for the subsequent year. The cal- 
endar contains designation of dates such as the following: 
Beginning and ending dates of instructional terms 

- Observed holidays 

- Mid-term and final examination dates 

- Commencement date 

- Dates final grades are due 

Once the draft calendar has been reviewed, the draft is 
forwarded to Human Resources and at that point, class 
days and faculty "duty days" are calculated. The final ver- 
sion of the academic calendar is then prepared for submis- 
sion to the Board of Trustees for approval. 

Academic Petition and Appeal Process 

Academic Petition: 

The academic petiuon is a process designed to review, 
based on written student request, college practices or actions 
related to, but not limited to: 

- Admissions processes 
Substitution for a required course 

- Waiver of general education requirement 
Readmission from Academic Suspension 

- Waiver of residency requirement for graduation 



Students begin the process by completing an official 
academic petition form, which is available in the Registrar's 
Office. Completed academic petitions must be submitted 
to the same office. It is the responsibility of the Registrar's 
Office to log the petitions, and to route them to the appro- 
priate person for review. 

Many academic petitions, especially those regarding 
admissions processes or standard substitution for required 
courses, can be handled directly at the Office of the Regis- 
trar. Those which the Registrar's Office feel need to be 
referred elsewhere are normally sent to the instructional 
supervisor responsible for that area. The instructional super- 
visor then makes a determination based on the information 
collected by his/her office or provided by the student, and 
may request a meeting with the student for further infor- 
mation or to receive clarification. The petition decision is 
forwarded to the Office of the Registrar, which informs the 
student of the decision. 

Academic Appeal: 

A student has a right to appeal a decision made on an 
academic petition. If a student wishes to appeal such a 
decision, the student must fill out an academic appeal form, 
and return it to the Registrar's Office. The appeal is logged, 
and forwarded to the Office of the Provost, Lee County 
Campus. The Provost of the Lee County Campus will review 
a student's appeal. A copy of the original academic pedfion 
decision is automatically part of the subsequent appeal. An 
appeal is not simply a review of the original pefition deci- 
sion. It is a request to reverse the original decision. The 
student must supply new, relevant, previously unconsid- 
ered informaUon, or spell out the 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 considerations or arguments should prove 
the student's case conclusively. The office may request 
additional meetings or additional information for clarifica- 
tion. The Provost of the Lee County Campus has the respon- 
sibility for making the final academic decision for the 
College. Forms are available in the Office of the Registrar.

Accelerated Programs 

The "Accelerated Programs" cluster represents a variety of different programs in which students may earn college credit 
through non-traditional methods. Most of the accelerated programs offered at Edison serve only eligible high school stu- 
dents. However, the CLEP program is available to all students.

The effect of State Board of Education Rule 6A- 10.030 on the use of the College Level Examination Program at Edison 
Community College is to disallow the use of CLEP to earn credit in any English Composition courses which count toward 
graduation requirements. Students who have completed higher levels of mathematics courses in high schools may seek 
CLEP credit for not more than three credits of mathematics. 

Credit earned on the CLEP for Humanities may be used as the second course in the general education Humanities 
requirement, but not for HUM 2210, 2230 or 2930; credit earned through CLEP will not count in fulfilling a writing inten- 
sive course requirement. CLEP credit may not be used for grade forgiveness. CLEP credit is not granted if the course has 
already been taken. CLEP credit for DEP 2004, Human Growth and Development, is not accepted by the Edison Nursing 
Program. 

II. ADVANCED PLACEMENT 

In order to provide greater flexibility and opportunity for high school students to proceed with their education, Edison 
Community College participates in a state-wide program of advanced placement with local high schools. The following pol- 
icy will apply to Edison Community College Advanced Placement Program: 

a. Educational Testing Service scores of 5, 4, and 3 will be accepted for credit, such credit to be assigned by the 
Admissions Officer in terms of the entrance policies of Edison Community College. 

b. State institutions will accept some placement credit for ETS scores of 5, 4, and 3 included in transcripts from Edison 
Community College. The student should contact the anticipated transfer institution for verification of acceptance 
prior to taking the examinations. 

The following advanced placement exams earn Edison credit as indicated:

III. ACCELERATED PROGRAMS FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: 



Dual Enrollment and other accelerated studies 

A. Part-Time Dual Enrollment 

High school seniors in Florida who have maintained 
a 3.0 academic average (or juniors who have maintained 
a 3.5 GPA), and demonstrate an ability and readiness 
for college level work may, with the approval of the dis- 
trict school superintendent or designee, enroll for courses 
which carry credit toward high school graduation as 
well as college. 

These courses may be held on the high school cam- 
pus or the college campus. Readiness for college level 
work is determined through scores earned on one of the 



following entrance examinations which are required 
prior to dual enrollment: ACT, SAT, or PCELPT 

Each county (and many private schools) has a sepa- 
rate Dual Enrollment contract with Edison. See your 
high school counselor for details. 

Dual enrollment students work closely with their 
high school guidance counselors to see that the follow- 
ing requirements are met. 

1. Testing prior to admission: SAT or ACT are pre- 
ferred; FCELPT is allowed. 

2. 3.0 GPA for seniors and Collier County juniors; 
3.5 GPA for all other juniors. 



36 



3. High school principal or designee must sign the 
dual enrollment form, listing the courses students 
should take (from approved list). 

4. Admit, attend orientation and register at one of 
Edison's three campuses. 

5. If the class is offered at the high school, admit and 
register in class. 

B. Other Accelerated Studies 

Students with demonstrated ability may be admitted 
part-time or in summer school by arrangements with 
their high school principal and counselor. A letter from 
the high school principal or designee must be submitted 
each session, specifying the areas in which the student 
has demonstrated ability and the courses the student is 
to take at Edison. Testing is required for English com- 
position and math courses. The student is responsible 
for payment of fees and books. 

C. Early Admissions: Full-time Dual Enrollment and other 
Accelerated Studies 

Early Admissions consists of: 

1. Full-time Dual Enrollment 

2. A combination of Dual Enrollment and other accel- 
erated studies which equal 1 2 credit hours or more. 

Edison Community College subscribes to a policy of 
early admission. The following must accompany the 
Edison Application for Admission: 

1 . A letter from the high school principal and counselor 
or designee containing: 

- a recommendation for full-time early admission 
and a list of approved other accelerated courses, 
if appropriate. 

- designations of courses which the student needs 
for high school graduation. 

2. Appropriate completed Dual Enrollment forms list- 
ing school board approved courses for which the stu- 
dent may register. These courses must apply toward 
high school graduation. (Note: Course descriptions 
will be provided by the Director of Counseling as 
requested). 

The applicant must complete testing and orientation 
prior to registering for classes. All early admissions stu- 
dents must achieve the state minimum cut off scores on 



all appropriate subtests of the college entry placement 
test. It is preferred that students present ACT or SAT 
scores at the time of application. If the student must be 
tested by Edison, the entire FCELPT will be adminis- 
tered. (Dual Enrollment/Early Admission students who 
use the FCELPT to establish their status may retest one 
additional time on the FCELPT once they have gradu- 
ated from high school, if they choose not to use their 
SAT or ACT scores for entrance to Edison). A hold will 
be placed on the application for early admission until it 
is determined that required test scores are achieved. 
No high school student will be placed in college 
preparatory classes or Health and Wellness for dual 
enrollment credit. 

Next, the applicant is interviewed and approved for 

admission by the Director of Counseling, or 

designee. An Edison advisor will assist the student in 

selecting the schedule of classes based on the 

courses recommended by the high school principal 

or counselor. If the principal or counselor indicates 

that a student has completed all high school credits 

except for electives, the Edison advisor will be able 

to provide a schedule of classes. 

- Tuition is waived for students earning early 

admission and dual enrollment credit. Textbooks 

are available at Edison or the high school. Check 

with a counselor/advisor for information. 

Policy for Awarding International 
Baccalaureate Program Credit 

Edison Community College has adopted a policy for 
awarding International Baccalaureate Program Credit. The 
Policy is as follows: 

- Students receiving the IB diploma will receive up to 
30 semester hours of credit for scores of four (4) or higher 
on both higher level and subsidiary level examinations. 

- Students who do not receive the IB diploma will receive 
credit for scores of five (5) or higher on higher level exam- 
inations only.

Beepers, Cellular Phones, and Pagers 

Beepers, cellular phones, and pagers should be turned 
off when entering a classroom. In an emergency, with prior 
authorization from the professor, a beeper, cellular phone, 
or pager may be turned to "silent ring" mode. In such a 
case, any exit from a classroom should be made with a 
minimum of disturbance. 

Children or Family Members 
in the Classroom 

Only currently enrolled students are authorized to be 
in classrooms, except for situations involving a disability. 
Children, spouses, or other relatives are not permitted, 
except by express permission of the Division Dean, Campus 
Provost, or District Director of Learning Assistance. Com- 
plaints regarding classroom disruption should be reported 
to the same persons. 

Class Attendance, Absence 

Students are expected to attend all class periods of the 
courses for which they are registered. Absence from sev- 
eral meetings of a course may result in a lower grade. As a 
result of excessive absence, a student may be required to 
withdraw from a course or from college. The determina- 



tion of what constitutes excessive absence in any course 
rests with the professor conducting that course. Most 
professors have written attendance requirements, for the 
student's reference, in their course syllabus. 

Class Cancellations 

The college attempts to honor its commitment to pro- 
vide 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. 



College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST) 

The State of Florida has developed a test of college- 
level communication and computation skills called the 
College Level Academic Skills Test or CLAST CLAST is 
designed to test the communication and computation skills 
that are judged by state university and community college 
faculty to be generally associated with successful perfor- 
mance and achievement in lower division work.

tions of the CLAST. 

b. SAT-R500 or above in Math, or its equivalent on the 
original scale score, shall be exempt from the Com- 
putation section of the CLAST. 

c. ACT-Enhanced 22 or above in Reading, or its equiv- 
alent on the original ACT, shall be exempt from the 
Reading section of the CLAST

Students completing an Associate in Arts degree or an 
Associate in Science degree and planning to transfer to a 
Florida State University must demonstrate their competen- 
cies required in the CLAST either through the method 
described above or by earning passing scores in both the 
Communication and Computation sections. 

The CLAST is administered three (3) times per year 
as determined by the State Department of Education. The 
college calendar should be consulted for registration dead- 
lines and test dates. 

Students who are required to take the CLAST and do 
not make acceptable scores on the test will not be awarded 
the Associate in Arts degree. Students who successfully 
complete three of the four CLAST sections may be admit- 
ted to the units of the Florida university system, but they 
must complete the remaining section prior to completion 
of thirty-six (36) credit hours of university work. 

After successful completion of all CLAST sections 
the student will be fully admitted to upper division status 
in the state university system. At this point, the student 
may apply for graduation and be awarded the Associate in 
Arts degree from Edison Community College. CLAST 
requirements also apply to students transferring to state 
universities in Florida from private colleges in Florida and 
from out of state colleges. 

The State Board of Education has established mini- 
mum CLAST score standards for the awarding of the 
Associate in Arts degree and for admission to upper divi- 
sion status in state universities in Florida. Students should 
check with the Counseling Center regarding specific score 
information. 

The Coun.seling Center staff at any of the college's 
three campuses, or the Learning Assistance staff in Lee 
County, can tell you how and when to apply to take the 
CLAST, CLAST score standards, and inform you where 



the communication and computation skills are taught in the 
curriculum. In addition, these locations can inform you 
about the CLAST exemptions and when special review 
sessions are available. Final authority for granting an 
exemption lies with the Institutional Test Administrator 
(ITA). This office is located only on the Lee County 
Campus in the Counseling Center, Sabal Hall. 

Students with disabling condition, which require spe- 
cial accommodations, must see the ITA prior to the regis- 
tration deadline for the CLAST. The college calendar should 
be consulted for appropriate dates. 

Students with a documented disability who wish to peti- 
tion for a waiver of the CLAST must also contact the ITA- 

CLAST Waiver Requests 

The legislature also realized that, for some individu- 
als, passing the CLAST might be overwhelmingly difficult. 
Therefore, the following circumstances have been delineated 
which allow a student to request a waiver of the CLAST. 

A petition must be filed with the ITA requesting such 
a waiver. After reviewing the petition, the ITA provides the 
paperwork to the CLAST Waiver Committee chairperson 
who then convenes a committee appointed by the Provost, 
Lee County Campus, to review the student's case. The 
committee examines the student's academic and medical 
records and hears testimony relevant to the case. The com- 
mittee then recommends granting or denial of the student's 
request for a CLAST waiver. 

Edison Community College has established a commit- 
tee pursuant to SBE Rule 6A- 10.03 11, FAC, to consider 
requests for CLAST waivers. This committee is responsi- 
ble to the chief academic officer and has four additional 
members: a member of the mathematics department, a mem- 
ber of the English department, the ITA, and a fourth faculty 



42 



member from a department other than English or mathe- 
matics. Other non-voting faculty or staff may be invited to 
attend and offer the benefit of their expertise as it relates to 
the student's inability to pass the subtest(s). 

Students with Documented Disabilities 

A student who has a documented, specific learning 
disability such that he/she cannot successfully complete 
one or more subtests of the CLAST may request a waiver 
of the particular subtest(s). 

Other CLAST Waiver Petitions 

Any student who has taken a subtest of the CLAST at 
least four times and has not been able to achieve a passing 
score, but has otherwise demonstrated proficiency in course 
work in the same subject area, may request a waiver from 
that particular subtest. Waivers may be considered only after 
the student has been provided with test adaptions or other 



administrative adjustments to permit the accurate measure- 
ment of the student's proficiency in the subject area. 

The committee will consider the student's proficiency 
in the subject area(s) and the student's educational records 
as well as other evidence as to whether the student should 
be able to pass the subtest(s). A waiver of the subtest(s) in 
question may be recommended upon a majority vote of the 
committee. When a waiver from a subtest(s) is approved, 
the student's transcript will be noted accordingly. A state- 
approved code will be used to indicate that the student did 
not meet the requirements of the above mentioned state 
statue and that a waiver was granted. 

The ITA submits a written report to the Department of 
Education as waivers are approved and final documenta- 
tion is sent to the student. The report outlines the follow- 
ing: name and social security number of the student, 
gender and ethnic background, type of waiver granted, and 
the subtest(s) for which the waiver was granted.

College Preparatory Program 



The Florida Legislature created, by statute, College 
Preparatory Programs in all of Florida's community col- 
leges effective July 1, 1985. First-time-in-college appli- 
cants for admission who apply to enter degree programs 
shall be tested prior to the completion of registration. Tests 
which are recognized for purposes of evaluation at Edison 
Community College are: The ACT Enhanced, SAT, and 
FCELPT. The test which will be routinely given to enter- 
ing students is the FCELPT (Florida College Entry Level 
Placement Test). 

Students should present scores on the above test which 
have been earned up to two years previous to admission to 
Edison. Further testing on the FCELPT may be necessary. 
These scores will be entered on the student's transcripts. 
Students shall enroll in college preparatory communica-, 
tion and computation instruction if test scores are below 
the specific levels indicated on the chart below. 

TEST READING ENGLISH MATH 

ACT-Enhanced 16 16 16 

SATR 420(Verbal) 420 440 

FCELPT 83 83 72(Alg) 

Please note: The FCELPT may be taken only one time. All 
test scores used for entry into Edison must be less than two 
years. Scores below those printed will require learning 
assistance courses. 

If the student scores above the cut off scores on the 
placement test, she/he may enroll in college credit instruc- 
tion. If the student scores below the cut off scores on the 
entrance test, she/he is required to enter college prepara- 
tory instruction. College preparatory instruction may NOT 
be counted toward meeting degree requirements. 

Students who test into college preparatory instruction 
and subsequently enroll in college preparatory instruction 
must successfully complete the required college prepara- 
tory studies by the time they have successfully accumu- 
lated 1 2 hours of college level course work or they must 
maintain continuous enrollment in college preparatory 
course work each semester until the requirements are 
completed while performing satisfactorily in the degree 
earning course work. Students shall not 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 will be considered to have utilized one of their three 
semesters allowed to complete that course. Students are 
permitted to enroll in college preparatory instruction con- 
currently with credit instruction in courses for which they 
are qualified. College preparatory students may not enroll 
in the following categories of college credit courses while 
completing their college preparatory course work: 

1) College preparatory students who are deficient in 
mathematics may not enroll in any college level 
mathematics courses or other courses that require 



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

3) College preparatory students who are deficient in 
all three areas may enroll in college-level courses 
such as orientation courses, college success courses, 
or other courses that are not dependent on college- 
level computation and communication skills. 

College preparatory instruction earns compensatory 
education credits only. 

College preparatory instruction is provided in reading, 
writing and mathematics. There are three levels of reading, 
three levels of English, and three levels of mathematics. 
The college preparatory courses a student may have to take 
are determined by the FCELPT scores. 

Reading instruction includes the recognition of main 
ideas, supporting details, meanings of words in context, 
author's purpose, tone, valid arguments, explicit and implicit 
relationships within and between sentences; and the ability 
to detect bias, to distinguish fact from opinion, and to draw 
logical inferences and conclusion. College preparatory 
writing instruction includes word choice, sentence, and 
five (5) paragraph essay. College preparatory mathematics 
instruction includes arithmetic and introductory algebra 
including real numbers and their properties, basic opera- 
tions and linear expressions, factoring of algebraic expres- 
sions, and solutions of linear equations and inequalities. 

All college preparatory courses require ninety (90) 
contact hours per semester. These contact hours are com- 
prised of a combination of regular classroom lecture hours 
and open lab hours. The combination is determined by the 
department each semester and is published in the official 
schedule of classes each semester. The open lab hours are 
posted each semester. Open lab hours can be completed 
any time the lab is open. 

Students shall not enroll for more than three (3) attempts 
in each course to complete college preparatory instruction. 
Students who withdraw officially after the end of the drop/ 
add period (defined as the date published in the Catalog) 
shall be considered to have enrolled that semester for pur- 
poses of this limitation. 

Students who withdraw after this point for reasons of 
personal hardship, disability, or under extenuating circum- 
stances may be granted an exception. Student must provide 
written documentation of hardship, disability, or extenuating 
circumstances that warrant withdrawal. Such exceptions 
require approval under guidelines established and approved 
by the Board of Trustees. Such documentation shall be 
submitted to the District Director of Learning Assistance, 



44 



who will approve or disapprove the request. In the event 
that no documentation can be furnished by the student, the 
signature of the District Director of Learning Assistance 
will be accepted as authorization for the exception. 

Edison Community College's Preparatory program is 
part of Learning Assistance. Should questions arise about 
this program and its regulations, please consult personnel 
in Learning Assistance or a counselor. 

PLEASE NOTE: STUDENTS WHO MUST ENROLL IN THE 
SAME PREPARATORY CLASS WITHIN A SKILL AREA 
MORE THAN ONE TIME SHALL PAY FEES AT 100 PER- 
CENT OF THE FULL COST OF INSTRUCTION STU- 
DENTS WHO WITHDRAW OR FAIL A CLASS DUE TO 
EXTENUATING CIRCUMSTANCES MAY BE GRANTED 
AN EXCEPTION ONLY ONCE FOR EACH CLASS. STU- 
DENTS MUST PROVIDE WRITTEN DOCUMENTATION 
OF FINANCIAL HARDSHIP DISABILITY, OR EXTEN- 
UATING CIRCUMSTANCES THAT WARRANT WITH- 
DRAWAL OR FAILURE. SUCH DOCUMENTATION 
MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE DISTRICT DIRECTOR 
OF LEARNING ASSISTANCE. 

College Rights 

Edison Community College reserves the right to deny 
admission to any applicant, to change any of the rules, 
courses, regulations, or teaching assignments without notice, 
and to suspend any student whose behavior is not in keep- 
ing with the best interests of the college. 

Course Deletions — "5- Year Rule" 

In compliance with SBE Rule 10.0331, FAC, and as 
part of the process of developing the new Catalog each 
year, the college shall delete from the Catalog any course 
not taught during the five fiscal years, or less, if desired, 
preceding the effective date of the next catalog. Based on 
data from Institutional Research, the instructional supervi- 
sors annually recommend to the Curriculum Committee 
which courses should be deleted from the Catalog. 

The following are exceptions to this rule: 

(1) Any course which is slated for deletion in accor- 
dance with above, but which is scheduled to be 
taught during the effective dates of the next 
Catalog, will be retained in the next Catalog. 

(2) Any course which is slated for deletion in accor- 
dance with above, but which the College feels 
should be retained as a course offering for some 
extraordinary reason(s), may be retained in the 
next Catalog, providing such action will be by 
specific recommendation of the Curriculum Com- 
mittee and the approval of the Provost, Lee 
County Campus. 

The Provost of the Lee County Campus shall annually 
notify the office of the State Board of Community Col- 
leges (SBCC) as to which courses are to be deleted from 



the inventory for Edison Community College, pursuant to 
this Rule. 

The Office of the Provost, Lee County Campus shall 
annually update the on-line course record to retain the 
Edison history of courses, including last term taught and 
relationship to previous or new courses. 

The President shall certify to the Board annually that 
the College has complied with this State Board Rule. 

Course Outline and Course Syllabus 

OUTLINE: The course outline is distinguished from 
the course syllabus in that the outline sketches or provides 
an overview of the content of the course. The syllabus, on 
the other hand, provides a detailed description of the par- 
ticular section of the course that a student is enrolled in 
during a particular semester, and includes such informa- 
tion as schedule of class meefings and assignments, atten- 
dance policies, textbook requirements, and actual test 
dates. The course outline typically includes only the first 
three steps listed below. 

The appropriate academic administrator or professor 
developing a new course is responsible for submission of 
the course outline. This document must be furnished to the 
Curriculum Committee along with the course proposal 
when a course is presented. If the course is subsequently 
approved for permanent use at the College, the course out- 
line becomes part of the documentation sent to the State 
Course Numbering System. 

SYLLABUS: The course syllabus is the responsibility 
of each professor. It should be developed by the professor, 
approved by the academic administrator, typed (or "word- 
processed,") duplicated, and ready to distribute and review 
with students at the first class meeting. A copy should be 
provided for the supervisor's file. 

The syllabus should include — at a minimum — the 
following: 

1. Course number and title. Catalog description, credit 
hours. 

2. Prerequisites for the course. 

3. General course information — Topic Outline: what 
the course is (and is not) designed to include. 

4. Course outcomes — in behavioral terms, specify what 
students are expected to achieve for each topic covered. 

5. Requirements for the students — class participation, 
tests, homework assignments, make-up procedures, etc. 

6. Attendance policy — the professor's specific policy 
concerning absence. (The college policy on attendance 
is in the Catalog, and defers to the professor.) 

7. Grading Policy — the numerical ranges for letter 
grades. (Note: The "incomplete" grade ["I"] should be 
given only when unusual circumstances warrant. An 
"incomplete" is not a substitute for a "D", "F", or "W." 
Refer to the policy on "incomplete" grades.) 

8. Textbook requirements (in correct bibliographic format).

1 1. Cla.ss Schedule: This section includes assignments for 
each class meeting or unit, along with scheduled LRC 
media and other scheduled support, including sched- 
uled tests. 

12. Any other information or class procedures or policies 
which would be useful to the students in this class. 
Since the syllabus may be interpreted as a contract 

with students, it should be developed carefully, insuring 
that material discussed is covered during the semester, 
grading and absence policies are followed, and so forth. 

Course Withdrawal Policy 

Students who officially withdraw from a class or classes 
any time prior to the date listed in the college calendar, 
found in the first few pages of this College Catalog, 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. (See "Maximum Course Attempts Policy.") 

Credit Class Scheduling 

Development of the class schedules for any session is 
at the discretion of the scheduler, i.e.. Director, Dean, or 
Provost. It is the responsibility of the scheduler to insure 
that: (1) appropriate courses are offered which best serve 
the needs of the community, (2) qualified instructors are 
found to teach all offered courses and (3) courses are 
scheduled in order to make efficient use of space available 
at each location. Class schedule development begins 
according to the time lines set by the Office of the Provost, 
Lee County Campus. Input from faculty is solicited. Final 
corrections are made and a copy made available for print- 
ing according to a publishing schedule set by the Registrar. 

Credit classes at Edison are scheduled to comply with 
SBE Rule 6A- 10.033, FAC, which requires one (1) college 
credit be awarded for learning expected from the equiva- 
lent of fifteen (15) fifty-minute periods of classroom 
instruction. Contact hours assigned to laboratory instruc- 
tion, internships or clinical experience are determined by 
Edison based on the proportion of direct instruction to 
the laboratory exercise, internship hours, or clinical prac- 
tice hours. Definition of such ratios are found in the Col- 
lective Negotiations Agreement, available at the Human 
Resources Office. 

Curriculum Committee 

The Provost, Lee County Campus, and the District 
Curriculum Committee share a strong commitment to pro- 
mote quality academic programs which meet student and 
community needs, and reflect the philosophy of the 
College as published in the College Catalog. The Curricu- 
lum Committee is responsible to the Provost, Lee County 



Campus, for reviewing and recommending new courses or 
programs to be offered, for recommending changes in or 
discontinuation of courses or programs, and for the contin- 
uous review and recommendation concerning the overall 
curriculum and instructional programs of the College. The 
Committee's recommendations concerning curricular pro- 
posals are forwarded to the Provost, Lee County Campus, 
for further action. 

Guidelines for Curriculum Proposals: 
Additions or Changes 

The following is a list of steps which must be under- 
taken in order to add a new course or change the content of 
an existing course. Course proposals which fail to adhere 
to these guidelines will not be considered by the Cur- 
riculum Committee: 

1. All new curriculum proposals should first be dis- 
cussed with the appropriate instructional supervisor. 

2. In the case of a new or experimental course, if the 
supervisor is in agreement with the proposal, he or 
she will fill in a "New Course Transmittal Form" 
except for the State Common Course Number. Based 
on the information presented, the Office of the Provost, 
Lee County Campus, will request a State Common 
Course Number. 

3. After the supervisor has received a return memo 
from the office of the Provost, Lee County Campus, 
with a State Common Course Number, a course pro- 
posal can be submitted to the Curriculum Committee. 
No new or experimental course will be considered 
by the Curriculum Committee without a State Com- 
mon Course Number. 

4. When all elements of the course proposal have been 
completed, sufficient copies (25) of the proposal should 
be turned in to the chairman of the Curriculum Com- 
mittee ten (10) working days prior to the monthly 
meeting. (Curriculum Committee meetings are gen- 
erally held on the fourth Thursday of each month.) 
Complete proposals must include the following: 

- Curriculum Committee Course Proposal Form 

- Course Outline 

- Course Transmittal Form 

Course proposals missing any of these items are 
incomplete and will not be considered by the committee. 

For inclusion in the College Catalog for the next aca- 
demic year, new curriculum proposals must be acted upon 
by the Curriculum Committee prior to December first. Pro- 
posals acted upon by the committee after this time will not 
be printed in the College Catalog for the next academic year. 

Experimental courses are valid for one year. For 
experimental courses to become part of the permanent col- 
lege course inventory and appear in the College Catalog, 
they will need to be resubmitted to the Curriculum Com- 
mittee for consideration prior to the December deadline.

Dean's List 

After the end of the Fall and Spring Semesters only, 
the Office of the Provost, Lee County Campus, will pub- 
lish a list of students completing twelve or more credits 
(College Preparatory Classes EXCLUDED) whose credit 
class grades averaged 3.5 (B-i-) 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 incomplete 
grades (see 'Incomplete' Grade). 

Faculty Office Hours 

Full time faculty are required to schedule a minimum 
of ten hours per week during which time they will be avail- 
able for consultation with students. Office hours configura- 
tion is subject to the approval of the instructor's supervisor. 
Office hours will be posted on faculty office doors by 
means of a "Program Card." Additional office hours may 
be scheduled, and students may be seen by appointment. 

Adjunct faculty should make themselves available for 
student consultation before or after class, and/or by 
■ appointment. 



Final Exam Procedures 

Information on this topic is published, by term, in the 
"Class Schedule." 

"Grade Forgiveness" Policy 

The "Grade Forgiveness" Policy permits students to 
repeat a course in an attempt to improve a grade. Repeating 
a course is permissible only for courses in which a student 
earned a "D" or an "F." A student will be limited to two 
repeats per course. Upon a third attempt, the grade issued 
will be the final grade for that course. (See "Maximum 
Course Attempts Policy.") 

Grade forgiveness is automatic, beginning Summer B, 
1995, for all students who have repeated courses at Edison. 

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 from other institutions. 

Students should be aware that some colleges or uni- 
versities 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 cau- 
tioned to check with the Financial Aid Office to insure 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, 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 grade-point 
average after the awarding of the Associate in Arts degree. 

This policy applies to courses that are repeated for 
"grade forgiveness" purposes. It does not apply to offi- 
cially repeatable courses. 

Grade Reports 

FINAL: Final Grade Reports are mailed at the end of 
each semester The final grade is the only grade which 
appears on the student's transcript. 

Grading and Grade-Point System 

For the current grade symbols and grade-point weights, 
the following grade symbols and grade-point weights are 
used at Edison Community College beginning in the 1997-98 
academic year: 

A Excellent 4 points 

B Good 3 points 

C Average 2 points 

D Poor 1 point 

F Failure points 

I "Incomplete"* points 

W Withdraw** points 

X Audit (No credit) points 

*See 'Incomplete ' Grade 

**See Course Withdrawal Policx 



4n 



^Incomplete' Grade 

A grade of "I" is given only when the student has suc- 
cessfully completed most of the course in question and, in 
the judgment of the professor, is able to make up any 
deficit within the required time frame. A student who 
received an "I" must make up the deficiency and have the 
change of grade recorded in the Office of the Registrar no 
later than the twenty-eighth (28th) calendar day after the 
first day of classes in the next session. After that, the grade 
defaults to an "F*. The responsibility for making the nec- 
essary arrangements with an instructor for the removal of 
an "I" rests with the student concerned. Extensions of a 
grade of "I" are not allowed. 

If a professor awarding an "I" is not going to be avail- 
able the following term, it is the responsibility of the pro- 
fessor awarding an "I" to make arrangements for the 
student to deliver the necessary completed course work to- 
a fellow faculty member or the professor's supervisor for a 
change of grade. In such a case, it is the professor's respon- 
sibility to inform the faculty member or supervisor and the 
student in wrifing what needs to be completed in order for 
the "I" to be removed. The professor should provide a copy 
of the student's grades to-date, and to describe how to 
assess the students remaining work and final grade. 

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

Learning Resources Charges 

The following charges apply to all patrons: 

( 1 ) Charges for material checked out and not returned: 

(a) The charge for material owned by Learning 
Resources will be the current average trade 
price of the material not returned. 

(b) Patrons of Learning Resources who do not 
return material obtained through intra/inter- 
library loan will be billed the charges assessed 
by the owning library. 

(c) Patrons who have overdue material or who 
have failed to return material that has been 
recalled will be notified. Patrons will be advised 
of the "Hold on Records" status defined in 
section 5. 

(d) If the material is not returned, patrons will be 
sent an invoice for the charges specified in 
this rule. 

(2) Lost or Mutilated Materials: 

(a) An item reported lost, or one returned in a 
damaged/mutilated condition, will be billed 
as described above. 

(b) If "lost" material owned by Learning Resources 
is subsequently found and returned in usable 
condition, within six (6) months, a refund will 
be issued of the charge paid provided the 
receipt is presented. 



(c) If "lost" intra/interlibrary material is subse- 
quently found, any refund will be at the dis- 
cretion of the owning library. 

(d) Exceptions to the time limits of this secfion 
may be made (at the discretion of the Direc- 
tor of Learning Resources) for out-of-print 
materials of continuing value. 

(3) Fee-based services provided by outside agencies: 
Patrons who request services for which a fee 
is charged will be billed the amount charged. 
No additional service charges will be added by 
Learning Resources. Examples of such services 
are literature searches done by a reference librar- 
ian in an external database and charges levied by 
the owning library for intra/interlibrary loans. 

(4) Learning Resources Cards: 

Patrons eligible for borrowing privileges will be 
provided one Learning Resources card at no charge. 
Patrons will be required to pay a replacement fee 
for each succeeding card issued. 

(5) Definition of "Hold on Records" Status: 

(a) No transcripts will be released. 

(b) No further registration will be permitted. 

(c) Degrees/Certificates will not be released. 

(d) Learning Resources borrowing privileges will 
be suspended. 

(6) Patrons will be given signed and dated receipts 
for each charge and/or service fee paid. 

(7) Learning Resources invoices that are not resolved 
may be turned over to the Business Office for fur- 
ther action. 

(8) Appeals by patrons penalized under this rule may 
be made to the Director of Learning Resources. 
Appeals must be submitted within ten working 
days of the assessment. 

Maximum Course Attempts Policy 

A student will be permitted a maximum of three 
attempts per course. This applies to course withdrawals 
and "grade forgiveness" or both of these combined. 

Maximum Student Class Load 

A student may not take more than 1 7 credit hours dur- 
ing a full-length semester or 8 credits during Summer A or 
Summer B session without the written permission of a 
counselor. Counselors will work closely with each student 
in determining the maximum class load the student should 
carry in relation to his or her ability and background. There 
is no minimum class load. 

Music Admission Policy 

Applied Music is designated a Limited Enrollment 
Program. Students who demonstrate advanced accom- 
plishment may be eligible for one-on-one applied music 
instruction. Seats are limited, and these classes are not 



48 



intended for beginners. The criteria guiding the selection 
process follows: 

1. Full-time music majors have first priority. Due to 
the high cost of individual instruction, students are 
not permitted to repeat an applied music course. 

2. Full-time (12 hours) degree-seeking students have 
second priority; students who need a one-credit-hour 
course to "fill" their load do not qualify, nor do 
those who are just learning to play an instrument. 

3. Dual enrollment students and part-time students who 
are likely to become full-time have third priority. 

4. Community members have fourth option on remain- 
ing seats, exclusive of those who have repeated a 
course more than once. Such repeaters should be 
referred to the Office of Continuing Education. 

All students enrolled in applied music lessons must 
receive approval and certification of demonstrated advanced 
accomplishment by the professor, the written permission 
of the dean, and must show evidence of having enrolled in 
an ensemble. The written permission shall designate the 
criteria ( 1 , 2, 3 or 4 as listed above) under which the student 
is granted approval. Students must be accommodated in 
priority order, i.e. criteria one students have first priority, 
then criteria two students, etc. A form will be provided for 
this process. 

Out-of-District Instruction 

Consistent with SBE Rule 6A- 14.006, FAC, credit and 
non-credit instruction provided by a community college 
outside its own district requires prior approval by the State 
Board of Community Colleges. State guidelines apply to 
foreign study, out-of-state but in-country instruction, and 
out-of-di strict but in-state instruction. Policies for grading, 
course outlines, learning outcomes, standards, etc., shall be 
the same for out-of-district instruction as for in-district 
instruction. Documentation to this effect shall be kept by 
the College. 

A professor who wishes to organize and instruct an 
out-of-district class, should fill out SBCC Form OD-1 (for 
out-of-state courses or programs), or SBCC Form OD-2 
(for out-of-district but in-state courses or programs). After 
the form has been submitted to his/her supervisor for 
approval, the Board of Trustees must approve the request 
for submission to the State Board of Community Colleges. 
The Office of the Provost, Lee County Campus, coordi- 
nates the paperwork with the State Board of Community 
Colleges. 

Since approval of both Boards is necessary, approval 
normally takes several months. Therefore the approval 
process should be initiated well in advance of the intended 
delivery of the course. 

Part-Time (Adjunct) Faculty 

Information relating to Adjunct Faculty is published in 

the Employment and Personnel Operations Procedures, 

■ provided by Human Resources, and in the Adjunct Faculty 



Handbook, published by the Office of the Provost, Lee 
County Campus. 

Professional Development of Faculty 

Section 4.8.7, "Professional Growth," Criteria for 
Accreditation, Southern Association of Colleges and 
Schools, 1994: 

An institution must provide faculty members the 
opportunity to continue their professional development 
throughout their careers and must demonstrate that such 
development occurs. 

Among the means of accomplishing this goal are 
leaves of absence for study and research, additional grad- 
uate work in the discipline, participation in professional 
meetings and in-service training such as instruction in 
computer usage. The general tone and policies of an insti- 
tution must make it clear that individual faculty members 
are to take the initiative in promoting their own growth as 
teachers, scholars, and especially in professional and 
occupational fields, practitioners. 

1. Each faculty member, except for first-year members, 
shall prepare an annual professional development plan 
at the beginning of the fall semester. The plan should be 
constructed during the faculty development period 
prior to the first day of classes. 

2. The plan shall outline what the faculty member realis- 
tically seeks to accomplish during the year to promote 
his or her professional development. Such a plan shall 
be clear and concise (consisting of a page or two) and 
should identify criteria for successful completion of plan 
objectives. It may be reviewed and revised by the fac- 
ulty member throughout the year as desired. A faculty 
member may consult with his or her supervisor, if 
desired, in constructing or revising the plan. 

The plan may also include projects which take longer 
than a year to accomplish. The faculty member shall 
note progress toward the longer-term objectives. Over- 
all and annual time-lines should be noted, as appropriate. 

Such a plan shall also summarize the progress made 
on the previous year's plan, indicating which parts of 
the plan have been accomplished, and which are to be 
incorporated in the next year's plan, and which ele- 
ments were not accomplished and are to be discarded. 

3. For faculty members who are currently in program areas 
or disciplines requiring recertification, recertification 
will be evidence of professional development. A sum- 
mary of successful progress toward recertification will 
constitute the faculty member's development plan. A 
faculty member may augment any such plan to the 
degree he/she wishes. 

4. The faculty member's annual professional develop- 
ment plan shall be forwarded directly to his or her 
supervisor so as to provide proof of compliance with 
SACS requirements. Unless a faculty member requests 
otherwise, only the current professional development 
plan shall be kept on file at Human Resources.

Standards of Academic Progress 

The purpose of the Standards of Academic Progress is 
to assist in identifying and providing help to students who 
are having academic difficulties. The intent of the 
Standards of Progress is to alert students that they are not 
making appropriate progress on a timely basis, so that they 
may correct academic weaknesses and problems early in 
their college career. The overall effect of these standards 
should be a more satisfactory academic performance and 
improved use of special resources available for students 
encountering academic difficulty, and to improve the 
retention rate of our students. 

In order to improve retention, mandatory orientation, 
entry testing (or test exemption), and advising (Educa- 
tional Plans) are required for all degree seeking students. 
The purpose of these sessions is to assure that students 
beginning their educational experiences at Edison will be 
enrolled in the appropriate courses, and with the appropri- 
ate course load relevant to each student's unique situation 
(e.g.. a single parent, holding a full-time job). All entering 
students who are unsure of their educational and career 
goals, and returning adult students who may lack confi- 
dence in their college survival skills, will be encouraged to 
enroll in SLSl 101, "College Success Skills." (This course 
has had a positive influence in improving student retention 
rates.) Students, who through placement testing, are required 
to enroll in a Learning Assistance reading and English 
course, and are encouraged to enroll in REA 1 620, "Special 
Study Skills." The purpose of these requirements is to help 
prevent student failure and to enhance student success. 

WARNING CATEGORIES: 

a. Academic Warning: Students who have attempted 
1 2 credits and have achieved less than a cumulative 
2.0 grade-point average (GPA) will be placed on 
"Academic Warning." These students should see a 
Counselor or Advising Specialist prior to further 
registration. 

b. Academic Probation: Students who have attempted 
18 credits and have achieved less than a cumulative 
2.0 grade-point average (GPA) will be placed on 
"Academic Probation." Such students will be required 
to see a Counselor in order to determine the best 
strategies to improve their academic progress. 
Students may be advised to enroll in REA 1620, 
"Special Study Skills,", or to take other college suc- 
cess courses such as SLSllOl, "College Success 
Skills," IDS 1350, "Critical Thinking," or special 
reading courses. 

Students on academic probation should be aware 
that if they do not raise their GPA in the following 
semester, they will be placed on Academic Suspen- 
sion. Students on academic probation could also 
jeopardize financial aid eligibility. 

c. Academic Suspension: Students whose cumulative 
GPA declines while on academic probation will be 



placed on "Academic Suspension" for a sixteen (16) 
week period. 

Students may petition to continue their enrollment 
through the Records Office. The petition must be received 
in the Records Office by a specific date to be considered. 
Students approved for confinuation of enrollment through 
petition must follow guidelines that will enhance their 
chances for academic success. Students whose petifions 
are denied will be suspended for the sixteen week period. 
Students desiring to re-enter college following "Academic 
Suspension" will be required to work closely with a Coun- 
selor or Advising Specialist who will help the student 
develop an appropriate choice of classes and goals. 

Students who fail to achieve academic improvement 
after reinstatement following academic suspension will be 
contacted by mail to inform them of their status and to rec- 
ommend what appropriate alternatives may be available to 
them. At this point, a registrafion "hold" will be placed on 
the student record. The student will be unable to enroll until 
he or she has consulted with a Counselor or had the oppor- 
tunity to discuss his or her situafion before an Academic 
Standards Review Committee. 

Student Classifications 

A: Full Time, Part Time: A student must take 12 credits 
or more during a semester session, or 6 credits or more 
Summer A or Summer B, to be considered a full-time 
student. A student who enrolls in less than these mini- 
mums is considered part time. 

B. Credit, Audit, & Non-Credit: Students enrolled for 
college credit in the current session will be considered 
Credit Students. Students who enroll for no credit, that 
is, students who "audit" a course normally offered for 
credit, will be considered Audit Students. Students 
enrolled in Continuing Education courses, which are 
not offered for college credit, will be considered Non- 
credit Students. 

Student Review of Instruction 

In order to improve the teaching/learning process, fur- 
ther course and program development, and encourage fac- 
ulty professional development, it is necessary to gather 
information regarding instructional practices and proce- 
dures. Among relevant kinds of information is the student's 
review of instruction regarding classes he/she is taking. 
Student surveys are distributed after mid-term examina- 
tions. The professor arranges for a student in the class to 
administer the survey and is not to be present while the sur- 
vey is completed. Written comments regarding any aspect 
of instruction in the surveyed class are encouraged and are 
made on the backside of the computer answer sheet since 
the surveys themselves will be re-used. Students are encour- 
aged to be as candid and as accurate as possible. Written 
comments should focus on elements which the student 
thinks can be improved or on elements which were partic- 
ularly effective or satisfying so that these may be retained. 



50 



The person administering the survey should remain in 
the room for questions, collect the survey and materials, 
seal responses in the envelope provided and return enve- 
lope to the designated office. The envelope should be 
checked to verify the correct course number, section and 
professor's name. The procedure for administering the stu- 
dent review survey is provided on the envelope containing 
the surveys. Copies of these directions may be obtained 
from any instructional administrator's office. Class aver- 
ages, 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 regard- 
ing instruction. 

Textbook Selection Process 

Uniform textbook adoption, in courses which consist 
of multiple sections in multiple locations, is strongly rec- 
ommended. To ensure that students pursue sequential 
courses with the prerequisite knowledge, and to ensure 
uniformity of course delivery, the college has identified a 
process which seeks to provide for faculty input in class- 
room materials adoption. 

In mid-fall semester each year, the textbook adoption 
process begins for the following academic year. The goal 
is to provide timely adoptions so that bookstore buy-backs 
can proceed efficiently, and that materials to be ordered 
can be specified well in advance of the time that they are 
needed in the classrooms. The deadline for completion of 
these two functions is prior to the Bookstore buy-back 
period during the Spring Semester. 

All faculty are solicited for input. Program or disci- 
pline committees are assembled before the Fall Semester 
has ended in order for prospective classroom materials to 
be assembled for examination. After the beginning of the 



Spring Semester, the committees meet and decide on class- 
room materials to be used in the following year. Regular 
meetings, and/or telephone conferences provide the basis 
for the decision making. 

Time for exchange of ideas should be provided. Once 
the decisions have been made, the Chairperson of each 
committee provides to his/her supervisor documentation of 
the decision process which includes the names of those who 
have been involved in the deliberation process, required 
materials selected, supplemental materials selected, and the 
date upon which these meetings and decisions occurred. The 
Bookstore order for books shall be completed at this time, 
and forwarded through regular channels to the bookstore. 

The college anticipates that except in unusual circum- 
stances, the course materials will be adopted for at least 
one year. Committees will meet each year for review to 
change or to re-adopt instructional materials. Documenta- 
tion of the decision-making process should proceed from 
the Chairs of the adoption groups to their supervisors. A 
copy of the documentation regarding classroom material 
adoption should be retained in the supervisor's office. A 
sample form to be used in the process of reporting the deci- 
sion of the committee may be obtained from any instruc- 
tional administrative office. 

Word-Processing or Typing Policy 

Students are expected to print or type papers which 
are presented in courses taken for credit. Exceptions may 
be made in special cases and a paper may be accepted 
which is neady handwritten and meets all other specifica- 
tions for legibility, form and documentation. The "word- 
processing" or typing of papers is regarded as the norm 
and is considered good practice for students transferring to 
upper division colleges and universities. 



51 



Graduation Requirements 



Graduation is processed automatically for all eligible 
students. Degree notations are posted to the online student 
transcript and diplomas are sent to the graduate's last known 
address. If returned, they are retained as permanent records 
in the Student Records Vault until claimed by the student. 

Any student whose degree requirements were met in a 
previous term will be graduated in the term in which the 
evaluation takes place. Petitions for backdated or delayed 
graduation will be reviewed on an individual basis. 

Any student who has 45 credit hours or more and is 
not enrolled in a Fall or Spring term will be contacted by 
mail to encourage completion of degree requirements. Any 
student who has met all Associate in Arts Degree require- 
ments except CLAST will be contacted by mail to encour- 
age completion and to request that they have his/her 
CLAST scores sent to this college. 

In order to receive either the AA or the AS degree, stu- 
dents must satisfy requirements for that degree, and must 
accomplish the following additional requirements: 

1. Register in the final session of attendance for any 
courses not previously completed which are necessary 
to satisfy degree requirements. Students may partici- 
pate in graduation ceremonies who have previously 
completed requirements during the current academic 
year, or who are due to graduate during the Spring 
Session, or are within eight hours of completion in the 
Summer A session. 

2. Achieve a cumulative overall GPA of 2.0 in all courses 
undertaken (for students who have transferred to Edison, 
this includes courses taken elsewhere). 

3. Fulfill all financial obligations to the College and meet 
all deadlines pertaining to graduation. 

4. Complete successfully fifteen credit hours of course 
work at Edison Community College. 

Students may graduate from Edison under the require- 
ments of a catalog in effect during any one of the five years 
after their first term of enrollment, whichever is to the stu- 
dents' advantage. If the degree requirements are not com- 
pleted during the five calendar years allotted, students 
must graduate in accordance with the regulations of the 
catalog in effect when they are to receive the degree. An 
Edison student who has not been enrolled for four calendar 
years or more shall be treated as a new enrollment for pur- 
poses of meeting these requirements. 

Associate in Science Degree (AS) 

This degree is job-preparatory. In order to receive the 
degree students must complete the specific hours of course 
work delineated for that particular AS program in the Edison

general interest to the student body. The Student Govern- 
ment 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 Development. 
Proposals for changes in policy, regulations and proce- 
dures which affect the student body as a whole are to be 
directed through the SGA and its advisor or the Director of 
Student Development. 

The right of assembly for students is recognized, pro- 
viding that student gatherings must 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 Organization Standards 

Recognized student organizations at Edison Com- 
munity College are responsible for maintaining the follow- 
ing standards:

approved by the respective dean or administrator and 
be a member of the College staff/faculty. No regu- 
larly-scheduled meetings of the organization or of its 
officers may be held without the advisor present. If a 
special meeting is called, the advisor must be notified 
far enough in advance so that he or she can be present 
or arrange for appropriate representation. 

II. Membership in student organizations is limited to stu- 
dents of Edison Community College. 

III. Activities of student groups must be conducted in 
accordance with city, county, state, federal and College 
regulations. 

IV. The elected student leaders and staff advisor of the 
group are the administrative coordinators for the 
group and must adhere to College regulations. 

V. Clubs must obtain authorization for off-campus trips 
and/or activities. All paperwork must be completed 
and submitted to the Office of Student Development at 
least 2 weeks prior to the trip or event. 

A. Representatives shall be limited to the number of 
official voting delegates. The College suggests no 
more than 15 students per advisor. 

B. An advisor or proxy must accompany any off-cam- 
pus trip sponsored by the group. The advisor has 
the full authority of the College in matters relating 
to student conduct and student welfare. 



VI. Failure to meet these prescribed standards, or infrac- 
tion of these regulations may result in: 

A. Denial of use of College facilities. 

B. Denial of recognition of the group as an organization.

hearing, according to the Student Code of Conduct 
and Responsibility. 

G. Loss of officer status in organization. 

Regulations, Procedures 

I. Definition: A Student Development function is defined 
as an activity or entertainment, sponsored by a College 
approved student group, designed to promote growth 
and development of students. 

II. Approval of Functions: All functions must be approved 
at least two weeks in advance of the event. The correct 
procedure is as follows: 

A. Clear the date on the student activity calendar at the 
Student Activities Office and with the advisor. 

B. Obtain an Activity Reservation form from the Stu- 
dent Activities office. 

C. Present the Activity Reservation form to the advi- 
sor and to the Student Development Specialist for 
approval. Date, location, hours, budget, theme, 
agreement and signature of the organization's pres- 
ident, advisor and treasurer should be indicated on 
the form. 

D. Completed forms must be in the Student Activities 
office two weeks prior to the event. Upon approval 
of your request, space, publicity, invitations, and 
other preparations may be made. 

E. All publicity must be approved by the club advisor. 

F. Public Entertainment 

1. Student organizations may hold no entertain- 
ment open to the public without the consent of 
the Student Development Specialist (or designee) 
and the advisor. 

2. All plans, scripts, librettos, costumes must be 
approved by the club advisor. 

III. Location of Functions: It is acceptable to have an event 
in any approved place in the five-county College dis- 
trict. A location may be disapproved because of dis- 
tance, inadequate police protection, inadequate facilities. 



62 



fire hazards or other reasons determined valid by the 
Student Development Office and the advisor. 

IV. Budgets: Each application for a function must be 
accompanied by a budget which is approved by the 
advisor, president and treasurer. 

V. Conduct: Organizations assume responsibility for 
members' and guests' conduct as follows: 

A. Only registered students and their guests may 
attend College events sponsored by student organi- 
zations, unless by special invitation of the group. 

B. Attire should be appropriate for a public event. 

C. Each group should refrain from using decorations, 
signs and favors considered in poor taste because 
students represent the College at all times. 

D. Any function sponsored by or held in the name of 
a recognized student organization must abide by all 
regulations stated herein, whether that function is 
held on or off the College campus. 

E. The College expects students to conduct them- 
selves as mature adults, to dress and conduct social 
events in good taste, and reserves the right at any 
time to discipline students whose conduct is deemed 
against College regulations. (See Student Code of 
Conduct and Responsibility.) 

F. Use or possession of alcohol and/or drugs by a stu- 
dent or advisor during any College sponsored activ- 
ity is prohibited. Violation of this policy can result 
in disciplinary action. 

VI. Duties as Advisor of a Campus Group: It is impor- 
tant for the advisor, officers and members to discuss 
their expectations for each other and the group. This 
will aid in preventing misunderstandings as the year 
progresses. The agreed-upon expectations should be 
written and distributed so that all participants are 
aware that they are accountable for the guidelines. The 
advisor serves as a resource person and an overseer of 
administrative details. 

A. Resource: Advisors have organizational and com- 
munity knowledge. Often they have been advisors 
of one club for quite a while and can share experi- 
ences that have occurred over the years. An advi- 
sor's professional and business associates, as well 
as friends in the local community are additional 
resources for clubs. With the assistance of a club 
advisor, outside resources can be used as speakers 
and sources of financial and general support. 

B. Administrative Details: Advisors are employees 
of the College and therefore have critical informa- 
tion regarding College staff, operations, regulations, 
etc. This can be of great benefit to clubs, especially 
when dealing with detail-oriented tasks such as 
purchasing items and traveling to conferences. Most 
advisors will be familiar with parliamentary proce- 
dures, Robert's Rules of Order, minutes, and book- 
keeping and can share this knowledge with others 
in the club. 



C. Rights and Responsibilities: Advisors of clubs at 
Edison are afforded certain rights and responsibilities. 
An advisor has the right to: 

1. Receive ample notice of meedngs and club 
functions that require his/her presence. 

2. Obtain a corporate account credit card through 
the College for club- related travel expenses. 

3. Document the behavior of students that are in 
violation of the Code of Conduct and Responsi- 
bility. Discipline students in conjuncfion with 
the Director of Student Development. 

4. Support club endeavors and voice his/her opin- 
ion in matters of the College. 

An advisor has the responsibilities of: 

1. Attending all club sponsored functions (includ- 
ing field trips/conferences) or getting a suitable 
replacement. Club functions will not be consid- 
ered official without the advisor present and 
individual members and the club will be held 
responsible for unofficial acts undertaken in the 
name of the College and/or club. 

2. Ensuring that any club publication is approved 
by the club advisor. 

3. Approving and signing-off on all club expen- 
ditures. 

4. Keeping abreast of the work and progress of 
the club. 

5. Being a mediator when a problem arises that 
hinders the club's progress. 

6. Empowering students with information (College 
and community) that will enable them to effec- 
tively work together and make progress. 

7. Maintaining a club ledger or working closely 
with the treasurer to maintain records. 

8. Checking to see that all officers meet GPA and 
hours requirements and are not on disciplinary 
probation. 

9. Conferring with newly elected officers to orient 
them to their responsibilities and the club con- 
sfitufion. 

10. Assisfing the club president in evaluating the 
performance of the club and other members. 
Remember, an advisor is there to do just that, advise. 
They are first employees of the College and must 
maintain those responsibilities in addition to personal 
and professional development. Students are expected 
to be responsible for the success of the organization 
with input from the advisor. 

Financial Regulations, Procedures 

All financial transactions must be approved by the 
advisor, president and treasurer of the club. The officers 
and advisor of a student organization are responsible for 
seeing that the group observes the financial policies and 
procedures of the College and has the duty of informing 
appointees of the purchasing regulations. The treasurer is 



63 



held responsible for collecting and depositing all funds in 
the College Cashier's Office within 24 hours. She/he shares 
with the president and the advisor the responsibility of 
informing members of financial duties and of proper pur- 
chasing procedures. All expenditures from club funds must 
be approved by the organization, either by budget or by 
motion, properly seconded and passed by majority vote 
and signed-off by the advisor, president, and treasurer. 

Purchasing Procedures at Edison 
for Clubs/Organizations 

Once a student organization is officially recognized 
by the College, they are entitled to an account (Fund 6) 
within the College. These funds are governed by the 
College's Business Office and are accountable to certain 
guidelines. Note: Student Organization accounts are not 
interest generating. 

I. Accounts and Statements 

A club president, treasurer, or advisor need only con- 
tact the Student Development Specialist and request 
that an account be opened for that organization. Once 
the account number is obtained, it is critical that your 
organization list the correct account number with 1 1 place 
holders-21 1 and club's name on all budget paperwork 
(i.e., 55550000000-211). This is particularly impor- 
tant since some account numbers have the same pre- 
fix, but different suffix. 

Monthly statements for all College accounts are 
produced in the Business Office on the Lee Campus. 
These statements are distributed to the budget admin- 
istrator for the various accounts. Because the state- 
ments arrive monthly, it is mandatory that club 
treasurers and advisors maintain a ledger with all club 
transactions. The budget administrator maintains 
account ledgers for all clubs and organizations on 
their prospective campuses. Club members and advi- 
sors may feel free to compare their ledgers with the 
budget administrator any time during the year. 

The budget administrator's signature must be on all 
budget paperwork before it can be approved. In addi- 
tion to this, the club president, treasurer and advisor 
must also validate the financial transaction with their 
signatures. Note: The club advisor should be listed as 
the College contact person for any student organiza- 
tion's order placed with a vendor. 

II. Budget Transactions 

There are four budget transactions that clubs may use: 

request for purchase, request for payment, petty cash 

and deposits. 

A. Request for Purchase: The REQUEST FOR 
PURCHASE FORM can only be submitted for 
vendors who accept the College's purchase order. 
If a vendor will not accept a College purchase order, 
contact the Purchasing Office for the name of a 
comparable vendor who accepts purchase orders 
and can provide the services or goods you desire. 



Signatures of the president, treasurer, and advisor 
must be on the form authorizing the transaction. 
Submit the typed form to the budget administrator 
for approval. 

Note: Clubs cannot place an order with a vendor 
without a purchase order number from the Pur- 
chasing Office. 

B. Petty Cash: Expenses totaling less than $25 may 
be reimbursed immediately through petty cash. 
Obtain a PETTY CASH FORM from the Cashier's 
Office. Secure advisor's, president's and treasurer's 
and budget administrator's signature, and submit 
with a receipt attached, to the Cashier for reim- 
bursement. A copy of the PETTY CASH FORM 
must be returned to the Office of Student Develop- 
ment for bookkeeping purposes. 

C. Deposit Memos: Deposits can be made on any 
campus through the Cashier in a matter of moments. 
The Cashier's Office will provide all student orga- 
nizations with DEPOSIT MEMOS. These may be 
submitted to the Cashier with cash or checks for 
deposit into club accounts. Checks must be made 
out to the student organization and Edison Com- 
munity College and possess the issuer's social 
security number (if a student). One copy of the 
DEPOSIT MEMO will be returned to the student 
and the other kept at the Cashier's Office for the 
Office of Student Development. 

D. Request for Payment: The REQUEST FOR PAY- 
MENT form may ONLY be used for travel expen- 
ditures. Complete the REQUEST FOR PAYMENT 
form and submit with supporting documents to the 
Student Development Specialist. A check is nor- 
mally ready within 2 weeks. The Business Office 
will mail the check to the organization or release it 
to a designee at the Cashier's Office. 

The time line for the above mentioned budget transactions 
is a strict one. All budget paperwork must be submitted to 
the Office of Student Development for appropriate signa- 
tures. Once approved and signed, the materials are then 
forwarded to Accounts Payable or Purchasing. Any account 
that has no financial activity for at least one year is deter- 
mined to be inactive. 

Travel Policies 

There are several steps that a student organization must 
complete before they can travel. Prior planning is the key 
to a successful, safe and enjoyable off-campus excursion. 
I. Travel Procedures and Paperwork 

A. Travel Authorization Form: Students attending 
ANY off-campus club sponsored event must sign 
and submit a College TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION 
FORM for the trip to be considered official. A 
TRAVEL AUTHORIZATION FORM should be 
completed & submitted to the Office of Student 
Development prior to departure. 



64 



B. Code of the Road: The CODE OF THE ROAD 
sets guidelines for club members on off- campus 
excursions. All Edison student organizations are 
responsible for using the CODE OF THE ROAD. It 
should be read and signed by all trip attendees, then 
submitted to the Office of Student Development 
prior to departure. This form allows the student to 
receive medical attention, emergency contact, and 
informs the student that they are still held account- 
able for adhering to the Student Code of Conduct 
and Responsibility. 
Regardless of how an organization reaches its trip destina- 
tion, remember, that this is an outside- classroom learning 
experience that you are allowed to attend. While learning, 
networking and socializing are all important, certain safety 
considerations must always be adhered to. 

Transportation 

Members of clubs may use rental vehicles, the College 
bus, commercial transportation, or their personal vehicles 
for club trips and conferences. However, there are certain 
stipulations attached to all of these means of transportation 
and paperwork to be completed. 
I. College Vehicle: No student may drive a College 

vehicle or rental vehicle on behalf of the College or 



II. 



any club unless that student is an employee of the 
College. If the club advisor or supervisor asks a stu- 
dent to drive a vehicle on behalf of the College, the 
following must be done: (1) make a copy of the stu- 
dent's Employment Authorization form and valid dri- 
ver's license, (2) submit this to the Director of Student 
Development or Student Development Specialist for 
approval two weeks prior to departure. If the student 
has permission of the Student Development Specialist 
and the club advisor to drive his/her own vehicle (not 
a rental or college vehicle) to a conference, the stu- 
dent's own insurance should provide coverage. The 
student must drive in "caravan" style with the advisor. 
Public Transportation: Commercial transportation 
includes air, train, bus and boat. Because students and 
groups are often afforded discounts, the Student Devel- 
opment Specialist and/or club advisor should always 
be consulted prior to making any reservations. All 
proper paperwork must be submitted before arrange- 
ments are made. If transportation is provided by the 
College bus or by a vehicle rented on a College pur- 
chase order, non-students and non-College employees 
are not covered under the College's insurance. 



65 



Student Code of Conduct and Responsibility 



Each student, whether in day or evening classes, 
part-time or full-time, is expected to be familiar with 
the rules and regulations of the College pertaining to 
academic affairs, social conduct, and student activities, 
which are published in this Catalog. Each student is 
responsible for conforming to the rules contained 
herein in addition to avoiding violations of the follow- 
ing specific offenses to the academic community. 
Failure to comply with these rules may result in the ini- 
tiation of disciplinary action. 

The following list includes the definitions of acts 
which are included in the STUDENT CODE OF CON-

Student Discipline and Hearing Procedures 



Students at Edison Community College agree, at the 
time of enrollment, to abide by the laws of this state and 
this nation, as well as the rules of this particular institution. 
Any student who violates these laws or rules is subject to 
action by the College. A guilty finding may result in vary- 
ing degrees of disciplinary probation ranging from a disci- 
plinary warning or probation to expulsion from the 
College. Sanctions may include: written reprimand, loss of 
certain campus privileges (including participation in inter- 
collegiate activities, student organizations, student govern- 
ment); credits may be withheld if student is delinquent in 
payment or if the credits were not honestly earned by the 
student; compulsory class attendance; monetary fines; 
penalty work hours; and notification of parents if the stu- 
dent is under 18 years of age. More information on student 
discipline is available by calling the Office of Student 
Development. 

Rules and regulations that are necessary for the proper 
control and discipline of students shall be developed by the 
Dean of Student Services or designee and published in the 
College Catalog after approval by the Board of Trustees. 
In the administration of discipline that student shall be 
accorded the following rights: 

a. The right to a hearing which will normally be closed 
unless the Dean of Student Services or designee and 
the student agree to an open hearing. 

b. The right to specific written charges sufficiently in 
advance to the hearing. 

c. The right to present witnesses and evidence at the 
hearing. 

d. The right to cross examine witnesses and evidence. 

e. No student shall be required to tesfify against him- 
self/herself. 

f. No disciplinary action shall be taken unless the pre- 
ponderance of the evidence exists. Formal rules of 
evidence do not apply. 

g. Should a student fail to appear at the hearing, the 
case shall still be heard. 

h. The right to a summary record of the preliminary 

hearing/hearing, 
i. If the student wishes to appeal the decision or sanc- 
tion, a letter of appeal should be delivered to the 
Office of Student Development within three school 
days of notification of the decision. The Dean of 
Student Services or designee will conduct the 
appeal hearing. 
A student, faculty or staff member may document in 
an INCIDENT REPORT what they deem to be a violation 
of College policy. This INCIDENT REPORT should be 
submitted to the Director of Student Development on the 
Lee Campus. The Director will conduct a preliminary 
investigation to determine if there is enough evidence to 
charge the student with violating the Student Code of 
Conduct and Responsibility. If there is sufficient evidence 



warranting charging the student with violating the Student 
Code of Conduct, the Director shall meet with the student 
and give him/her written notice of the charge(s). Within 
three school days of the receipt of the written charges, the 
student shall meet with the Director and plead guilty or not 
guilty. If the student pleads guilty, the Director will impose 
an appropriate sanction. If the student pleads not guilty, the 
case will be heard by the Student Discipline Committee. If 
the Committee finds the student in violation, a sanction 
will be given. 

Traffic Ticket Appeals 

If a student chooses to appeal a ticket for violating the 
campus traffic regulations, he or she should contact the 
Public Safety office on campus. If the student wants to 
appeal the decision of the Public Safety office, he or she 
may choose to have a hearing in front of the Student 
Government Association Chief Justices for a final deci- 
sion. The Student Traffic Court may uphold the ticket vio- 
lafion, modify the charge or overturn the charge. 

Drug Free Campus 

Local, state and federal low prohibit the possession, 
use and distribution of illicit drugs (including cocaine, 
heroin, LSD, marijuana, stimulants and depressants.) The

drug, except as expressly permitted by law, on College 
property or at College-approved functions, is strictly pro- 
hibited. Violation of the College's or state or federal guide- 
lines regarding drugs and alcohol may result in sanctions 
imposed by the College and/or the state. There are health 
risks and side effects associated with drug use. For more 
information on the Drug Free Campus Program at the 
College, contact the Office of Student Development or the 
Human Resources Office.

FLORIDA STATUTES Section 240.3191; 240.3192: 

POLICY REGARDING STUDENTS WITH HUMAN 
IMMUNE DEFICIENCY VIRUS (HIV). 

The following guidelines are established regarding 
students with Human Immune deficiency Virus (HIV): 

1 . DEFINITION: For the purposes of this policy, a student 
with HIV falls into one of the following categories: 

a. An individual who tests positive for HIV antibody 
but who has no symptom manifestations; or 

b. An individual who is diagnosed as having AIDS 
Related Complex (ARC) — debilitating symptoms 
but no opportunistic infections; or 

c. An individual who is diagnosed as having Acquired 
Immune Deficiency Syndrome (AIDS) — display- 
ing one or more opportunistic infections. 

2. STUDENT RIGHTS: The College recognizes that the 
rights of students with HIV to obtain education and 
employment must be balanced against the rights of per- 
sons without HIV who wish to be reasonably protected 
from contracting the virus. 

a. Both the Federal Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 
and the Florida Educational Equity Act prohibit dis- 
crimination against persons with disabilities, and 
students with HIV are classified as disabled. 

b. Under most circumstances, students with HIV will 
be afforded the same opportunities and benefits 
afforded to non-disabled students, including, but not 
limited to access to educational programs, counsel- 
ing, student employment opportunities, and finan- 
cial assistance. 

c. Precautions will be provided to students in Allied 
Health Programs and science laboratory classes. 

d. Any student who reveals that he/she has HIV will be 
afforded confidentiality in accordance with appro- 
priate statutes and state law. 



3. ADMISSIONS: No student will be denied admission to 
the College solely on the basis that he/she has HIV. 

a. The College will not require a student to reveal 
whether or not he/she has HIV when applying for 
admission to the College, although the student may 
choose to reveal such data as part of the voluntary 
health information shared with the College. 

b. Furthermore, the College will not require serologi- 
cal testing to determine if a student seeking admis- 
sion has HIV. 

4. ATTENDANCE, WITHDRAWAL, AND/OR SUSPEN- 
SIONS: Under most circumstances, no student will be 
required to cease class attendance solely on the basis of 
having HIV. 

a. If a student with HIV requests special accommoda- 
tions due to illness (i.e., disability), the College will 
acquire sufficient information about such disability 
to make a determination regarding the requested 
accommodations. 

b. The College will not impose any rule(s) or restric- 
tion(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 reason- 
able accommodations have been examined or tried, 
and after an examination of the facts demonstrates 
to the College that the student can no longer func- 
tion as necessary to meet the requirements of the 
student's course or program, or that the student pre- 
sents a health or safety risk to self or to the college 
community. 

5. HIV LIAISON: A person may be appointed by the 
Provost on each campus to serve as a consultant to 
members of the College community regarding the pol- 
icy of the College in this area. 

a. The appointed liaison will work directly with the 
Dean of Student Services in all matters regarding 
students with HIV, including hearings and develop- 
ment of policy. 

b. The appointed liaison will provide information and 
education regarding HIV. This information will 
include: mode of transmission; signs and symptoms; 
precautions; appropriate attitude and behavior change; 
and means used to control the spread of HIV. Edu- 
cation programs and Health Fairs will be the pri- 
mary vehicle of information disseminations. 

c. Any student wishing to request special accommoda- 
tions should contact the Dean of Student Services.

ual's employment or education; 

b. Submission to or rejection of such conduct by an 
individual is used as the basis for the employment or 
academic decisions affecting such individual; or 

c. Such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreason- 
ably interfering with an individual's work perfor- 
mance or academic or professional performance or 
creating an intimidating hostile, or offensive work- 
ing or educational environment. 

3. Appropriate disciplinary action will be taken against 
any employee who violates this Policy against sexual 
harassment. Based on the seriousness of the offense, 
disciplinary action may include verbal or written repri- 
mand, suspension, or termination

action on the part of the board of trustees, depending 
upon the nature of the offense(s) and/or the severity of 
the action to be taken. In such ca.ses, the President will 
recommend appropriate action to the Board at the next 
regular Board Meeting following his communication to 
the parties. 

5. Retaliatory action against anyone filing a complaint of 
any type of discrimination, including sexual harass- 
ment, will not be tolerated. The designee of the President,

designated to serve as the victim advocate. 

Security Policies and Statistics 

Campus safety and security measures must be com- 
municated and understood by all students and employees

employment practices, provision of services and access to 
College facilities and programs. Edison Community College 
assumes the Department of Labor's definition of a disabled 
individual as "one who ( 1 ) has a physical or mental impair- 
ment which substantially limits one or more of such per- 
son's life activities; (2) has a record of such impairment; or 
(3) is regarded as having had an impairment." 

Empioyment 

Edison Community College does not discriminate in 
hiring, review, promotion, discharge, or other aspects of 
employment, against any applicant or employee with a dis- 
ability, on the basis of that person's disability, if the person 
is qualified and able to perform the "essential functions" of 
the job with reasonable accommodation. Edison provides 
all disabled employees with equal or equivalent access to 
all benefits of employment, in an integrated setting, that 
would be available to a similarly situated employee, unless 
doing so would be an undue hardship. 

Programs, Services and Facilities 

Edison Community College is committed to the require- 
ment of making all programs, services and facilities "acces- 
sible to" and "usable by" persons with disabilities. Efforts 
include ensuring that exisfing facilities are readily accessi- 
ble to or usable by individuals with disabilities through 
structural changes in facilities or through other methods 
that are equally effective, to make services, programs, or 
acfivifies accessible; eliminating eligibility criteria that 
screen out individuals with disabilifies or any class of indi- 
viduals with disabilities from fully and equally enjoying 
any service, program or activity unless these criteria are 
shown to be necessary for the provision of the service, pro- 
gram or activity being offered; administering services, pro- 
grams and activities in the most integrated setting 
appropriate to the needs of qualified individuals with dis- 
abilities; and taking appropriate steps to ensure that com- 
municadons with applicants, participants and members of 
the public who are disabled are as effective as communi- 
cations with others, including the furnishing of appropriate 
auxiliary aids and services. 

Persons with disabilities are responsible for request- 
ing services. 

Edison is responsible to notify students, faculty, and 
staff of services available. This is accomplished by listing 
services in publications such as this Catalog, faculty hand- 
book, pamphlets, and at orientation programs for staff 
and students.

The ADA Coordinator 

In compliance with the Americans with Disabilities 
Act, the College has designated the Director of Human 
Resources as the ADA Coordinator. The Coordinator may 
be reached at 489-9294 or, in person, in the Human Resources 
office located in the Learning Resources Building on the 
Lee County Campus. The Coordinator will oversee and 
coordinate the College's efforts to comply with and carry 
out its responsibilities pertaining to the Act and will serve 
as the contact person for all ADA and information resource 
policies, procedures and concerns, bringing information 
before the ADA committee to be acted upon as necessary 
and appropriate. 

The ADA Grievance Process 

Guidelines for filing an ADA complaint: 

Edison Community College reaffirms the principle of 
Equal Access/Equal Opportunity regardless of race, creed, 
color, national origin, religion, sex, age, disability, and 
marital status. The equal opportunity principle applies to 
otherwise qualified disabled persons with regard to employ- 
ment, the delivery of educational programs and services and 
all other appropriate areas in which the College is involved. 

Section 6H6:2.06 of the Edison Community College 
District Board of Trustees Policy Manual clearly outlines 
the College's policy prohibiting discrimination. Further- 
more, the College's policy of non-discriminafion complies 
with the regulations set forth in Section 504 of the Rehabil- 
itation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act 
of 1990. 

Procedure for filing an ADA grievance 

The purpose of the grievance procedure is to provide 
a means to mediate a fair and equitable solution to a 
complaint alleging discrimination based upon disability, or 
in violation of the rules and regulations prohibiting dis- 
crimination as outlined in the ADA. 

Any person who feels they have been discriminated 
against based upon disability or in violation of ADA guide- 
lines may contact the Director of Human Resources, the 



Human Resources Office, or the campus Provost, for infor- 
mation and assistance. The Director of Human Resources 
serves as the Coordinator for the ADA Grievance Process. 

Employees 

Any Edison employee alleging discrimination based 
upon disability, and/or in violation of ADA guidelines 
should notify his/her immediate supervisor. If the com- 
plaint is against the immediate supervisor, the next 
higher level supervisor should be contacted. An employee 
may contact either the campus Provost or the Director 
of Human Resources for counseling and advice. 

Students 

Students alleging discriminaUon based upon disabil- 
ity, and/or in violation of the ADA guidelines may 
contact the Dean of Student Service (or designee), or 
the ADA Coordinator. 

Informal/Formal Grievance Procedure 

Edison employees or students may file a grievance for 
violation of ADA guidelines by filing one of the following 
complaints: 

1. Informal process involving discussion between the 
immediate parties involved 

2. Edison formal grievance complaint 

3. (Outside agency) Department of Justice (Department 
of Justice will refer complaints for which it does not 
have jurisdiction under Section 504 to the appropriate 
agency.) 

The time limits established for filing the grievance are 
the same as those already established as set forth in the 
Edison Community College Employment and Personnel 
Operating Procedures Manual. 

When appropriate, the time frame for filing a griev- 
ance as established under Section 35. 1 70 of the ADA guide- 
lines may apply. 

Students with disabilities wishing to petition for Sub- 
stitution Admission and Graduation Requirements should 
submit academic petition to the Office of the Registrar.

PROGRAMS OF STUDY 

The two types of programs offered by Edison Community College are degree programs and certificate pro- 
grams. The degree programs are the Associate in Arts, which is oriented toward continuing in higher education, and 
the Associate in Science degree, which is job-oriented. The degree programs normally take two years to complete. 
The certificate programs are usually one year in length and teach students the skills necessary for employment in 
specialized areas. The objective of the degree programs is to provide students with as much general education as 
possible, while that of the certificate programs is to limit courses to an area of specialization.

ADMISSION/ACADEMIC STANDARD 
NURSING (ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE DEGREE) 

The Associate in Science Degree in Nursing prepares the 
student to take the licensure examination (NCLEX-RN) adminis- 
tered by the State Board of Nursing for Florida, and upon suc- 
cessful completion of the examination, be licensed as a Registered 
Nurse in the State of Florida. The Edison Community College 
nursing program is fully approved by the Florida Board of Nurs- 
ing and accredited by the National League for Nursing. 

The philosophy of the Associate Degree program is that: 

1. Nursing is a profession with a body of knowledge derived 
from nursing concepts, principles, and skills, and the bio- 
logical, social, and behavioral sciences. 

2. Nursing is a caring, service-oriented profession accountable 
to the client, the community, and the profession. 

3. The practice of the associate degree graduate is based on 
three interrelated roles: (1) provider of care; (2) manager of 
care; and (3) member of the discipline of nursing. 

The nursing program has limited enrollment. Each nursing 
applicant must meet the application criteria. The selection process 
has been established by the Department of Nursing and the Nursing 
Advisory Committee. Applicants with the best qualifications will 
be invited to join the nursing program. 

The A.D.N, program is comprised of general education 
courses as well as clinical nursing courses. The curriculum incor- 
porates classroom instruction, laboratory simulation, and clinical 
practice. Area health facilities are utilized, including various clin- 
ics and nursing homes. Two possibilities for program completion 
are: the Basic Program (Generic), or the Advanced Placement 
Program. Students are admitted to the Basic Program (Generic) 
on the Lee campus once a year in the Fall Semester. Students are 
admitted to the Advanced Placement Program on the Collier and 
Charlotte campuses in the Fall Semester, and the Lee campus in 
the Spring Semester. 

The Nursing program is a limited access program. The cri- 
teria for admission are available through the program office or 
through the Health/Science Division. 

LICENSURE REQUIREMENTS 

If an applicant has been convicted, had any adjudication 
withheld, or has any criminal charges pending other than a minor 
traffic violation, the applicant must make arrangements with the 
Florida Board of Nursing for permission to take the licensure 
examination upon completion of the program. 

Fees and a physical exam are required by the Florida Board 
of Nursing I'or the Licensure Examination. 

ADMISSION/ACADEMIC STANDARDS 

A student must earn a minimum grade of "C" or above in all 
general education courses required in the Nursing Program. Any 
course with a grade of "D" or below must be repeated and will 
not count towards admission. An academic average of "C" or 
higher and a grade of "Pass" in the clinical portion must be earned 
in each nursing course in order to continue in the nursing pro- 
gram. Satisfactory completion of the 72 semester hours of approved 
credit with a grade of "C" or higher is required to graduate.

Continuing Education 



Continuing Education is a unique dimension of Edison 
Community College which provides a variety of credit- 
free programs for all interests and age groups. Understand- 
ing that learning is a lifelong experience, Continuing 
Education provides activities and courses conducted with- 
out the pressure of tests, grades or home assignments. 
These programs provide an informal and inexpensive means 
for self-improvement. Programs are offered in the form of 
workshops, seminars or classes that may vary from one 
day to several weeks in duration. Career development, 
activities for children and topics specifically aimed toward 
concerns of the elderly are some of the many areas which 
the Continuing Education Division reaches. For further 
information regarding teaching or attending these activities 
or to share ideas for the development of future programs, 
please contact the Continuing Education office staff at 
489-9235 or 9236. 

THE INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT DEVEL- 
OPMENT (IMD) Is the business and industry service 
center of Edison Community College. IMD specializes in 
practical and effective training for owners, managers and 
employees. Seminars, workshops, courses and conferences 
are custom-designed and offered on site or as open pro- 
grams at various sites. Call or write and a representative 
will come to your office to discuss your needs with no 
obligation. A consultant/trainer experienced in the area of 
your training/research need will then be chosen. A pro- 
posal will be offered which includes the cost of the total 
package. Before the project begins, the consultant will 
meet with you to determine the results you expect. These 
services are available in the five-county area served by 
Edison Community College. 

THE INSTITUTE OF BUSINESS (lOB) is a new 

component of IMD which will provide management assis- 
tance to business owners/operators. The lOB helps busi- 
nesses become more productive and profitable by addressing 
key issues critical to the success of the business such as:

Family Business Issues 

Special Interest Topics 

THE FLORIDA INSTITUTE OF GOVERNMENT 
(lOG) was established in 1981 with its primary purpose 
being to support research, training and technical assistance 
which responds to problem solving in state and local gov- 
ernment. The Institute is administratively assigned to Florida 
State University, but currently has six state universities and 
four community colleges as members to the consortium. At 
Edison Community College, the Institute of Government 



has been part of the Division of Continuing Education 
since 1984. The Institute is a participant member of the 
Southwest Florida League of Cities and the Florida City 
and County Managers Association. 

THE INSTITUTE OF HEALTH PROFESSION- 
ALS (lOH) offers relicensure courses for nurses and Health 
Professionals through the Division of Continuing Education. 
Continuing Education courses are available to RN's, LPN's, 
EMT's, Respiratory Care Therapists, Laboratory and Radio- 
logical technologists to help earn contact hours for relicen- 
sure. This gives the licensed nurse working in health care 
agencies, as well as those nurses desiring to keep current 
in health related issues, short courses at low cost. These 
courses also offer the opportunity for licensed nurses to earn 
contact hours for relicensure (Provider Number 27C0388) 
as required by the Florida State Board of Nursing. 

LIFELONG LEARNING COURSES are those 
designed to improve an individual's competencies and/or 
enhance their quality of life. A minimal fee is usually 
charged; the courses are open to all adults. They are 
offered at various community sites and on campus. These 
courses can be identified in the Continuing Education class 
brochure by the prefix LLL. 

TELECONFERENCES are the newest dimension in 
Edison's Continuing Education capabilities. The Lee County 
campus has been designated by the Florida State Depart- 
ment of Education as one of 40 receiving sites in the state 
for the Florida Satellite Network. It allows the college to 
receive video communications from around the state and 
the nation. Several rooms on campus are equipped to receive 
the programs. 

COLLEGE FOR KIDS programs are designed to 
inspire, delight and expand young people's potentials and 
heighten their imaginations. These individual courses are 
open to youngsters from first grade through ninth grade 
and will include courses in computers, science, acting, art, 
sculpture, juggling, magic and much, much more. Red 
Cross baby sitting and CPR classes will be offered to 
young teens along with wardrobe and etiquette workshops. 

CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS 

One CEU is defined as 10 contact hours of participation 
in an organized Continuing Education experience under 
responsible sponsorships, capable direction, and qualified 
instruction. CEU's are not academic semester or quarter hour 
credits. One unit is awarded for each 10 hours of instruc- 
tion, with decimal units given for portions of that time. 
Certificates are awarded, permanent college records are main- 
tained and verification of participation can be requested.

Course Information 



FLORIDA'S STATEWIDE COURSE 
NUMBERING SYSTEM 

Courses in this catalog are identified by prefixes and 
numbers that were assigned by Florida's Statewide Course 
Numbering System. This common numbering system is used 
by all public postsecondary institutions in Florida and by 
two participating private institutions. The major purpose of 
this system is to facilitate the transfer of courses between 
participating institutions. 

Each participating institution controls the title, credit, 
and content of its own courses and assigns the first digit of 
the course number to indicate the level at which students 
normally take the course. Course prefixes and the last three 
digits of the course numbers are assigned by members of 
faculty discipline committees appointed for that purpose 
by the Florida department of Education in Tallahassee. 
Individuals nominated to serve on these committees are 
selected to maintain a representative balance as to type of 
institution and discipline field or specialization. 

The course prefix and each digit in the course number 
have meaning in the Statewide Course Numbering System 
(SCNS). The list of course prefixes and numbers, along 
with their generic titles, is referred to as the "SCNS taxon- 
omy." Descriptions of the content of courses are referred to 
as "course equivalency profiles." 

General Rule for Course Equivalencies 

Equivalent courses at different institutions are identi- 
fied by the same prefixes and same last three digits of the 
course number and are guaranteed to be transferable between 
the participating institutions that offer the course, with a 
few exceptions. (Exceptions are listed below.) 

For example, a survey course in social problems is 
offered by 31 different postsecondary institutions. Each 
institution uses "SYG _010" to identify its social problems 
course. The level code is the first digit and represents the 
year in which students normally take this course at a spe- 
cific institution. In the SCNS taxonomy, "SYG" means 
"Sociology, General," the century digit "0" represents 
"Entry-Level General Sociology," the decade digit "1" rep- 
resents "Survey Course," and the unit digit "0" represents 
"Social Problems." 

In science and other areas, a "C" or "L" after the course 
number is known as a lab indicator. The "C" represents a 
combined lecture and laboratory course that meets in the 
same place at the same time. The "L" represents a labora- 
tory course or the laboratory part of a course, having the 
same prefix and course number without a lab indicator, 
which meets at a different time or place. 

Transfer of any successfully completed course from 
one participating institution to another is guaranteed in cases 
where the course to be transferred is offered by the receiv- 
ing institution and is identified by the same prefix and last 
three digits at both institutions. For example, SYG 1010 is 
offered at a community college. The same course is offered 
at a state university as SYG 2010. A student who has suc- 
cessfully completed SYG 1010 at the community college 
is guaranteed to receive transfer credit for SYG 2010 at the 



state university if the student transfers. The student cannot 
be required to take SYG 2010 again since SYG 1010 is 
equivalent to SYG 2010. Transfer credit must be awarded 
for successfully completed equivalent courses and used by 
the receiving institution to determine satisfaction of 
requirements by transfer students on the same basis as 
credit awarded to native students. It is the prerogative of 
the receiving institution, however, to offer transfer credit 
for courses successfully completed which have not been 
designated as equivalent. 

Sometimes, as in Chemistry, a sequence of one or 
more courses must be completed at the same institution in 
order for the courses to be transferable to another institu- 
tion, even if the course prefix and numbers are the same. 
This information is contained in the individual SCNS course 
equivalency profiles for each course in the sequence. 

The Course Prefix 

The course prefix is a three-letter designator for a 
major division of an academic discipline, subject matter area, 
or sub-category of knowledge. The prefix is not intended 
to identify the department in which a course is offered. 
Rather, the content of a course determines the assigned 
prefix used to identify the course. 

Authority for Acceptance of Equivalent Courses 

State Board of Education Rule 6A. 1 0.024( 17), Rorida Admin- 
istrative Code, reads: 

When a student transfers among institutions that par- 
ticipate in the common course designation and numbering 
system, the receiving institution shall award credit for 
courses satisfactorily completed at the previous participat- 
ing institutions when the courses are judged by the appro- 
priate common course designation and numbering system 
faculty task forces to be equivalent to courses offered at the 
receiving institutions and are entered in the course num- 
bering system. Credit so awarded can be used by transfer 
students to satisfy requirements in these institutions on the 
same basis as native students. 

Exceptions to the General Rule for Equivalency 

The following courses are exceptions to the general rule 
for course equivalencies and may not be transferable. Transfer- 
ability is at the discretion of the receiving institution: 

A. Courses in the _900-_999 series (e.g., ART 2905) 

B. Internships, practica, clinical experiences, and 
study abroad courses 

C. Performance or studio courses in Art, Dance, 
Theater, and Music 

D. Skills courses in Criminal Justice 

E. Graduate courses 

College preparatory and vocational preparatory courses 
may not be used to meet degree requirements and are not 
transferable. 

Questions about the Statewide Course Numbering System 
and appeals regarding course credit transfer decisions should 
be directed to the Office of the Provost, Lee County Campus 
at Edison Community College.

INSTRUCTION-AA 

1-2 Credits 
Prerequisite: permission of the Dean of Instruction 

Applied Music is designated Limited Enrollment Program. 
Students who demonstrate advanced accomplishment may 
be eligible for one-on-one applied music instruction. Seats 
are limited, and these classes are not intended for beginners. 
The criteria guiding the selection process follows: 

1 . Full-time music majors have first priority. Due to the 
high cost of individual instruction, students are not per- 
mitted to repeat an applied music course. 

2. Full-time (12 hours) degree-seeking students have sec- 
ond priority; students who need a one-credit-hour course 
to "fill" their load do not qualify, nor do those who are 
just learning to play an instrument. 

3. Dual enrollment students and part-time students who are 
likely to become full-time have third priority. 



(*) Preparatory credit. Does not count toward a degree. 
(**) Offered if sufficient demand.
