Introduction 



Moving Forward 

In just over a quarter of a century, Indiana Vocational 
Technical College, popularly known as Ivy Tech State 
College, has grown from an idea to a thriving post- 
secondary institution. In 1963, the Indiana General 
Assembly established Ivy Tech State College as Indiana's 
first statewide vocational technical college by appropriating 
$50,000 for its development. Following appointment of a 
State Board of Trustees, a president was named and the first 
training program was established in 1965. Later 
amendments to the enabling legislation authorized the 
College's present regional structure of 13 administrative 
centers to provide accessible technical educational 
opportunities to all Indiana citizens. Thirteen regional 
boards of trustees were appointed, and 13 regions were 
chartered between 1966 and 1969. 

Ivy Tech State College is a public, statewide, open- 
access, community-based, technical college. The College's 
mission is to enable individuals to develop to their fullest 
potential and to support the economic development of 
Indiana. Ivy Tech State College prepares residents of 
Indiana with the general and technical education needed for 
successful careers or for continuation in further higher 
education. The College provides courses, certificate and 
degree programs, counseling and related services, technical 
assistance, and community service to individuals, 
communities, and businesses and industries across the state. 
Ivy Tech State College promotes educational mobility 
through partnerships with local schools and other higher 
education institutions. 

Within the statewide College system, some 1,500 full- 
and part-time faculty members teach in more than 50 
program areas offered in four instructional divisions: 
Business; Visual Communications; Health and Human 
Services; and Technology. 

The College's regional offices of Business and Industry 
Training work closely with Indiana businesses to offer 
customized training and retraining in response to specific 
company needs. These training programs are available on 
campus or in the workplace. 



Regional History 

Ivy Tech State College-Central Indiana Region, one of 
the College's 13 regions, opened its doors in 1966 to serve 
residents of Indianapolis and Marion, Morgan, Hancock, 
Johnson, Shelby, Boone, Hendricks, and Hamilton counties. 
In 1966, the College enrolled 367 students in three 
technical programs; in Fall 1993, the College enrolled 6,273 
students in 33 areas of study. Further, state leaders in 
government and business are looking to Ivy Tech State 
College more than ever before to provide the skilled 
technicians who will support existing industry and attract 
new industry to the state. 

Facilities 

The Ivy Tech State College-Central Indiana Region 
campus is located north of downtown Indianapolis at One 
West 26th Street, comer of Fall Creek Parkway and North 
Meridian Street. The central campus is comprised of the 
North Meridian Center, Technology Center, and the Child 
Development Center. The East Washington Street Center, 
1331 E. Washington Street, houses the Automotive 
Technology programs. 

In addition, the College holds selected classes in area 
high schools throughout Marion County and the seven 
surrounding counties. Call (317) 921-4461 for more

Admission Non-Degree Seeking 

Ivy Tech State College offers courses in many career 
areas. Admission as a non-degree student is easy. Simply 
complete a registration form, obtain a counselor's signature, 
and register. Please check with a counselor to see if the 
course you want is available to non-degree students. Call 
921-4800 for more information. 

Admission Degree-Seeking 

For admission as a degree-seeking student to one of Ivy 
Tech State College's programs leading to an Associate 
Degree or Technical Certificate, the requirement is a high 
school diploma or GED certificate. The Admissions, 
Counseling, or Registrar offices can provide a request form. 
The College must receive an official copy of a high school 
transcript or Official Report of GED Test results. Anyone 
applying for Associate in Science degree programs and 
Health and Human Services programs is required to turn in 
the high school transcript or GED test results before starting 
the first semester. All individuals applying for other 
programs are encouraged to have high school transcripts or 
GED scores submitted to the Registrar's Office prior to the 
start of their fu-st semester. These documents must be 
received prior to the start of the second semester or the 
student will be placed in a non-degree status. Exceptional 
circumstances will be considered. 

Applicants are required to participate in academic 
assessment testing. The purpose of testing is to measure the 
student's achievement in basic skills areas of mathematics, 
reading, writing, reasoning, and communication. 

Assessment testing may be waived in certain programs 
if the applicant submits either: 

a. An official transcript from an accredited post- 
secondary institution indicating academic 
achievement consistent with Ivy Tech State 
College's admission standards. 

b. Acceptable standardized test scores (i.e., SAT, ACT) 
indicating academic achievement consistent with Ivy 
Tech State College's admissions standards. 

If assessment indicates that the applicant has the basic 
skills needed for success in the chosen program, he/she may 
be allowed to begin program-level coursework. If the 
assessment reveals skill deficiencies, the applicant will be 
advised to complete appropriate developmental coursework. 



If the assessment indicates that the applicant is unlikely 
to achieve success at Ivy Tech State College at that time, 
he /she will be referred to an appropriate community 
resource offering the needed assistance. The applicant may 
reapply at a later date if identifiable skills are upgraded. 

The College reserves the right to guide the enrollment 
of students in particular programs or courses on the basis of 
past academic records, vocational/technical counseling, and 
testing. 

Students seeking admission to Health Occupation 
programs may be requested to take part in pre-enroUment 
assessments and/or interviews to fulfill College or external 
agency requirements. Prerequisites, such as health 
examinations, may be required before enrolling in programs 
or courses. 

Readmission 

Should a student's course of study at Ivy Tech State 
College be interrupted during a semester, an official drop 
form must be completed, or an F grade will be assigned. If 
a student is withdrawing from classes or not re-enrolling for 
classes, the student may request readmission at a later date. 
This is accomplished by contacting the Admissions and 
Counseling offices. Information on eligibility for financial 
assistance will be available to returning students, from the 
Financial Assistance Office. 



Limited Admission Enrollment 

Sometimes the number of students admitted and 
enrolled in programs and/or courses is limited by College 
resources or facilities-including available lab equipment or 
the number of available health program clinical work 
settings. The Admissions Office should be contacted 
regarding the status of different programs. 

Admission Procedures and 
Support Documents 

For degree-seeking students: 

1. A complete student admission data form, which 
establishes records in the Registrar's Office, is 
required.. 



2. Proof of high school graduation or GED completion 
is normally required for admission into a program 
leading to a certificate or a degree. The high school 
graduate or individual who has the GED must 
request the secondary school or testing center to send 
an official copy of the transcript or GED certification 
to the Office of the Registrar. Applicants to 
Associate of Science degrees and Health and Human 
Services programs must have their high school 
transcript or GED certification scores on file in the 
Registrar's Office before the start of the first 
semester. Applicants for all other programs must 
have the high school transcript or GED certification 
scores submitted no later than the end of the first 
semester of attendance. 

3. Students whose high school transcripts are not in 
English must have their high school u^anscripts 
translated into English and verified by an appropriate 
outside agency. All international students must have 
their transcripts evaluated and verified by an 
appropriate outside agency. Please contact ihe 
Admissions Office for an international packet. 

4. "Home Schooled" students will be required to obtain 
a GED for admission, unless the student has an 
acceptable transcript that was issued by one of the 
regional accrediting agencies (i.e. North Central, 
South Central, or Middle States). 

5. The College has counselors available to assist 
students in selecting a course of study at Ivy Tech 
State College. 

6. The College requires that program-declared students 
either provide acceptable standardized test scores or 
participate in the College academic diagnostic testing 
program. 

7. Should a student wish to transfer credits to Ivy Tech 
State College from another college, the student must 
have an official copy of the grade transcript 
forwarded from that institution to Ivy Tech State 
College. This must be done no later than the end of 
the first semester of enrollment or re-enrollment. 

8. The College requires a health examination for certain 
programs. 



Transferring to the College 

The College encourages students who have previously 
attended other recognized colleges and universities to talk to 
Ivy Tech State College's Admissions Office. Note: Ivy 
Tech State College does not accept for transfer credit taken 
at a foreign institution. The College will be glad to assist 
individuals with the evaluation of their prior educational 
experiences. Students who have had such education and 
feel they may be able to test out of certain courses may 
contact their program chair. It is the responsibility of all 
students having enrolled in 12 or more attempted quality 
hours (attempted hours), to have any earned credits from 
other colleges submitted for evaluation as transfer to the 
College's Registrar. Courses to be evaluated are to be 
submitted by midpoint of the first semester or enrollment or 
re-enrollment. Transfer students will be considered to be 
making Satisfactory Progress at the time of their transfer to 
the College. Students are responsible for providing course 
descriptions and/or copies of the college catalog(s) if further 
documentation is needed to facilitate the transfer credit 
review. However, through an Admissions Counselor, 
students with college work are encouraged to talk with the 
appropriate program chair to see if testing out of courses is 
possible, based on previous college or work experience. 

The College reserves the right to refuse admission or to 
accept conditionally those students who have been 
dismissed for disciplinary reasons from other colleges or 
universities. 

Transferring to Other Colleges 

It is the right and responsibility of the receiving 
institution to decide whether to accept credits from another 
institution. The Associate in Applied Science degree 
(A.A.S.) and the technical certificate programs offered by 
Ivy Tech Slate College are intended to prepare students with 
the necessary knowledge and skills to enter or advance in 
the workplace. However, the College has articulation 
agreements with many four-year institutions which enable 
students to transfer some or all of their Ivy Tech credits 
depending upon the program.

the following grades: A, B, C, or D. 

Each term, in order to maintain Satisfactory 
Progress, a student is required to complete the 
number of credit hours indicated for his/her 
enrollment status. 



A student who does not earn the minimum credit 
hours required for his/her enrollment status at 
the end of his/her first term or at the end of any 
term immediately following a term of 
Satisfactory Progress, shall be placed on 
Academic Probation for the next term. During 
this probation term, financial assistance eligibility 
may be continued. However, a student who does 
not remove his/her probation status by the end of 
this first probationary term shall be considered as 
failing to make Satisfactory Progress. Unless 
he/she successfully appeals this determination, 
he/she shall be ineligible for financial assistance for 
the next term of enrollment.

If a student reaches the maximum number of credit 
hours attempted, and the student has not completed 
his/her declared course of study, suspension of 
financial assistance will occur regardless of changes 
from one course of study to another. Reinstatement 
of aid would take place only if the student 
completed a course of study and subsequently 
enrolled in a course of study leading to another 
degree or certificate. In cases where a student is

counted toward the maximum time frame for that 
degree or certificate. 

Financial Assistance for Basic Skills 
Advancement Courses

hours of enrollment in Basic Skills Advancement courses. 
Educationally-disadvantaged students accepted in an

Advancement courses (not counted toward the TC, AS, or 
AAS degree) in order to ensure their future academic good 
standing. 

Financial Assistance will be Denied: 

1. In those terms following completion of the total 
maximum time frames. Total maximum time frames 
include all terms of enrollment during which 
students are not making satisfactory progress and/or

following the first probation term in which 
satisfactory progress was not achieved.

of failure to maintain satisfactory progress will regain their 
eligibility if any of the following conditions are met: 

1. Enroll at least half-time at their own expense and 
receive at least a 2.00 term GPA while meeting the 
Quantitative Standards of Progress. The student will 
regain financial assistance eligibility and will be on 
probationary status the following term. 

2. Enroll at their own expense and raise their 
cumulative GPA to a 2.00 or higher while meeting 
the Quantitative Standards of Progress. The student 
will regain financial assistance eligibility and will 
be in good standing the following term.

Testing Out of Courses 



Dropping and Adding 



Policies rcgiirding testing out of courses vary from 
program to program. A student who wishes to test out of a 
course should contact the program advisor. A $10.00-per- 
credit-hour fee will be charged for the test. The general 
guidelines for test-out are as follows: 

1. Test-out examinations should be taken before the 
student registers for the course for which the test 
out is attempted. 

2. Test-out examinations are normally completed at 
one sitting (unless the lest is offered in two parts, 
i.e., lab and written exams). 

3. Test-out credits are not included in credit 
computations for financial aid programs or student 
grade point averages. 

Registering for Courses 

The registration process includes financial aid and 
program counseling, selection of courses, and payment of 
fees. Newly-admitted students will be notified of when to 
register for their first semester classes. 

Specified days are set aside for registration before the 
beginning of each semester. Students should seek assistance 
in course selection from faculty advisors or counselors 
through the Counseling Office before registering for classes. 

The Counseling Office can supply information 
concerning registration. 

NOTE: STUDENTS ARE REGISTERED ONLY 
WHEN FEES HAVE BEEN PAID. 

Open/Late Registration 

Please see class schedule for course reservation days 
and registration times. Registration on or after the first day 
of classes each term is considered late. Students may 
register after the first week of classes with the permission of 
the instructor; however, a late regisU"ation fee is assessed 
beginning the first day of classes. In no case will students 
be allowed to register following the first class after the first 
week of classes. For further information, students are asked 
to contact the Admissions and Counseling offices. 



Courses may be dropped or added during the first two 
weeks of the regular semester. Students may be eligible for 
a full or partial refund of the assessed fees for courses 
dropped during the first four weeks of the semester. 
Students changing, adding or withdrawing from a class 
must notify the College in writing using the drop-and-add 
form. This form must be presented to the Registrar's 
Office. 

Student Withdrawal 

From the beginning of the second week to the end of 
the week marking the completion of 75 percent of the 
course, a student may withdraw from a course by filing a 
completed withdrawal form at the Registrar's Office and 
discontinuing class attendance. Students may be eligible 
for a full or partial refund of the assessed fees — see Refund 
Policy. Records will then indicate status of "W" in place 
of a grade for that course. A student who discontinues class 
attendance after the last day to withdraw with a "W" will 
receive a grade commensurate with the course 
requirements.

of all students and employees. 

Communicable disease shall be defined as any 
condition which is u^ansmitted directly or indirectly to a 
person from an infected person or animal through the 
agency of an intermediate animal, host or vector, or 
through the inanimate environment. 

Communicable and infectious disease shall include, but 
is not limited to: 

Influenza

Hepatitis A, B, and D 

Meningitis 

Sexually Transmitted Diseases 

No student or employee who has a communicable 
disease will be required to report the condition to any 
campus official. However, students and employees should 
be encouraged to advise local health authorities if they have 
a communicable disease. Local health authorities should 
offer counseling to these persons about measures which can 
be taken to prevent the spread of infection and about ways 
to protect their own health. 

Persons who know or who have reason to believe that 
they are infected with a communicable disease have an 
ethical and legal obligation to conduct themselves in 
accordance with such knowledge in order to protect 
themselves and others. Students and employees who have 
communicable diseases, whether symptomatic or not, will 
be allowed regular classroom and work attendance in an 
unrestrictive manner as long as they are physically able to 
attend classes, college activities and/or work, and do not 
pose a medically-proven threat for transmission of the 
disease or condition. When there is no medical 
justification for totally restricting the access of students and 
employees who have communicable diseases, they will be 
allowed access to the College Campus. 

No person, group, agency, insurer, employer, or 
institution should be provided any medical information 
without the prior specific written consent of a student or 
employee unless required by state and/or federal law. 
Furthermore, all medical information relating to the 
communicable diseases of students and employees will be 
kept confidential, according to an amendment to the Family 
Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974.

reading and review in the College Learning Resource 
Center. Copies are available through the Admissions 
Office. 



Due Process Procedures for 
Student Conduct Violations 

Due process provides the College an appropriate 
mechanism to deal with violation of student conduct and 
conversely allows a student with a disagreement to grieve 
against a College personnel's decision affecting that 
student. The intent of due process is to provide a process or 
procedure for unbiased review of a particular case or 
situation. The intent, rather than the mechanism, is the 
focus of this process. Thus, exceptions to the specifics and 
mechanisms can and will be made. 

L Cases or appeals of student misconduct and/or lack 
of academic integrity are to be referred to the 
appropriate designee of the Vice 
President/Chancellor, Dean of Instructional Affairs, 
or Director of Student Affairs. This College 
representative: 

a. will be responsible to review all initial 
disciplinary procedures; 

b. may suspend a student for a period of time 
until the Student Status Committee can 
meet; 

c. may withdraw the student from a course 
or program or dismiss the student from the 
College for disciplinary reasons. 

2. Students recommended for suspension, withdrawal, 
or dismissal will be notified in writing. Students 
will be given an opportunity to appeal the decision 
to the Student Status Committee if they so choose. 

3. The Student Status Committee deals with all cases 
relating to disciplinary actions or the academic 
status of students. Each region has a Student Status 
Committee that makes recommendations to the Vice 
President/Chancellor. 



20 



4. The Siudeni Status Committee will be composed of 
at least six members, including two full-time 
instructional staff members and two administrative 
staff persons appointed by the Vice 
President/Chancellor of the region. The additional 
two members will be students designated by the 
Student Senate. The Committee's review and 
subsequent disposition of a formal complaint will 
begin no later than 30 days after receipt of the 
written complaint. Staff legal counsel, as needed, 
will be available to the Committee. 

5. The Student Status Committee will assure the 
student due process. A written statement will first 
be presented by the student to the chairman of the 
Student Status Committee. The student will be 
invited to speak on his or her behalf to the 
Committee. The name of anyone the student wishes 
to bring to the meeting must be submitted for 
approval, in writing, to the Student Status 
Committee Chair prior to the meeting. Only the 
student may address the committee, unless otherwise 
allowed. 

6. The Student Status Committee will issue a 
recommendation to the Vice President/Chancellor 
following its deliberation. Disciplinary probation or 
dismissal from the college will be final only after 
review by the Vice President/Chancellor, who may 
approve or disapprove the recommendation of the 
Student Status Committee. Students dismissed for 
disciplinary reasons will not be entitled to refunds. 

7. The student will be informed in writing of the 
decision of the Student Status Committee and of the 
subsequent recommendations to the Vice 
President/Chancellor, whose decision is final. All of 
the written recommendations from the committee 
will be filed in the student's folder in the Registrar's 
Office. 

8. If the student disagrees with the Student Status 
Committee recommendation, he or she may file a 
complamt with the regional Vice 
President/Chancellor within 72 hours after 
notification of the Student Status Committee's 
decision. 



9. Exceptions to these rules may be made in 

extenuating circumstances at the discretion of the 
Vice President/Chancellor or his designee, upon 
request by those involved. 



Disciplinary Action 

A student who violates the rules and regulations of the 
College may be subject to any of the following disciplinary 
actions: 

1. Verbal reprimand. 

2. Restitution for damages. 

3. Restriction of privileges. 

4. Withdrawal from a course, program, or the College. 

5. Suspension from the College. 

6. Dismissal from the College. 

Student Grievances 

Students may bring legitimate grievances to the 
attention of their instructors, counselors or other advisors. 
Time will be provided for a grievance conference within 
two weeks of the complaint. The purpose of the conference 
is to discuss the problem and to find, if possible, a mutually 
satisfactory resolution. The conferences will be held 
within two weeks of notice of the complaint. 

The first part of the process involves the student 
working one-to-one with appropriate staff to resolve the 
situation. If the grievance concerns an instructor or faculty 
advisor, the student, through a stepladder process, should 
first request a conference with a program chair or area 
supervisor. If the situation is not resolved, the student 
should address the department chair. The next step, if there 
is not resolution, is to meet with the divisional chair. 
Finally through this part of the process, the student can 
petition the Dean of Instructional Affairs. 



21 



Non-instruciional areas follow ihc same step process. 
Through Student Affairs, for example, the process would 
be counselors, then manager, and finally Director of 
Student Affairs. If the grievance is against the Dean of 
Instructional Affairs or Director of Student Affairs, the 
case will be remanded to the Student Status Committee. 
The student who feels his or her grievance has not been 
resolved to his/her satisfaction through the one-to-one part 
of the process should then continue the grievance process 
by requesting a hearing of the Student Status Committee. 
The Student Status Committee is the final part of the 
grievance process and involves the Student Status 
Committee and the Vice President/Chancellor. 

Note: If the student has a discrimination complaint, it 
will be referred to the Affirmative Action Officer to be 
initially processed under the College Affirmative Action 
Plan. If a hearing is necessary, the Affirmative Action 
Officer may return the matter, with advice, to the Student 
Status Committee, for a formal hearing. 

Student Grievance Policy 

1 . Bring your complaint to the attention of your 
instructor, advisor, or counselor. 

2. Your advisor, instructor, or counselor will provide 
you a conference within two weeks of the notice of 
your complaint. 

3. If you feel that such a conference with your 
instructor, advisor, or counselor would be futile 
because of the advisor's involvement in the 
grievance, you may elect to request a conference 
with a department head, division chair or manager as 
deemed appropriate. This conference will also be 
held within two weeks of the notice of your 
complaint. 

4. If the complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction 
through the infonnal procedure, you may submit the 
grievance in writing to the Dean of Instructional 
Affairs or Director of Student Affairs. Exception: if 
the complaint is filed against a Director or Dean, 
his/her responsibility in these procedures shall be 
assumed by another Director/Dean. 



5. The formal written complaint brought by a student 
must; 

a. Clearly state the facts giving rise to the 
grievance; 

b. Clearly state the remedy sought by the 
complaining party; 

c. Be signed and dated. 

6. The written complaint shall be forwarded to the 
chair of the Student Status Committee unless the 
Chief Administrative Officer decides to resolve the 
complaint in another way which will be explained to 
the grievant in writing. 

7. The Student Status Committee is responsible for 
review and disposition of any such complaint 
forwarded to it. 

8. The disposition of a formal grievance procedure 
may be one of the following. 

a. Refuse further action: If no formal case has 
been made by the complainant the matter will 
be refused in writing to said grievant with 
reasons for this action. The grievant may 

. ' resubmit the complaint once within 30 days 
providing there is additional information to be 
submitted. If not, the decision is final. 

b. Fact-finding and mediation: The Committee 
itself can engage in investigation of the 
allegation as an attempt to mediate with parties 
a mutually agreeable resolution of the matter. 
A signed agreement should be generated 
summarizing the issue and resolution, if 
agreement is reached. 

c. Referral: The complaint may be referred to a 
more appropriate forum for action. 

1 . If the complaint is a discrimination 
complaint, it should be referred to the 
Director of Affirmative Action Programs 
to be initially processed under the 
College Affirmative Action Plan. If a 
hearing is necessary, the Director of 
Affirmative Action Programs may return 
the matter, with advice, to the Student 
Status Committee for a formal hearing. 



22 



2. If the Commiitee believes a policy or 
procedure of the College is being 
legitimaiely challenged, it will refer the 
grievance to the Vice President/Chancellor 
with an explanation of its concern. 

D. Remand complaint: If it appears no 
legitimate informal attempt to resolve the 
matter has taken place and it appears such 
discussion might lead to resolution of the 
complaint, then referral of the matter to the 
student advisor or other appropriate staff 
person for review and discussion with the 
student would be in order. If resolved, a 
report to the Student Status Committee will be 
made by such staff person. The Student Status 
Committee will review the agreement reached 
with the student to assure diat, in fact, there 
was mutual agreement and understanding. 

E. Hold formal hearing: If a grievance cannot 
be resolved utilizing the steps listed above, the 
committee may hold a formal hearing. If held, 
witnesses may be called, including the parties 
to the complaint. Legal counsel may be 
present, but not talk on behalf of the student. 
A recommendation will then be formulated 
and a report made to the Vice 
President/Chancellor of the suggested 
resolution of the matter.

Tech Prep 

Ivy Tech developed a statewide Tech Prep associate 
degree program in 1993. The purpose of Ivy Tech's Tech 
Prep program model is to enable Indiana high school 
students to enter into and complete a post-secondary 
technical program to learn the skills necessary to succeed in 
the workforce. This purpose is achieved through three 
program objectives: 



Provide high school students with the information 
they need to prepare for college-level technical 
education, so students can enter directly into a 
technical program after high school graduation and 
avoid the need for costly and time-consuming 
remedial coursework; 

Provide high school students with opportunities for 
achieving advanced standing, so students who take 
advantage of this opportunity can complete a 
technical associate degree program in less than two 
years of full-time study; and 

Provide opportunities for students to complete an 
enriched course of study, so qualified students can 
pursue an advanced technology curriculum.

status codes. In certain instances, a status code will appear 
on the student's recwd in place of a grade. Status represents 
a condition to which no letter grade can be assigned. 
Grades reflect the quality of performance and level of 
competency achieved by students who complete a course. 
Instructors determine and assign grades and status based on 
objective appraisal and evaluation of students' 
performances. Semester grade reports are sent to each 
student. T 



Grades 

The quality of student performance ot competency 
level, as determined by the instructor at the completion of a 
course, is indicated by a letter grade of A, B, C, D, ot F. 
Each designation has a numerical value per credit hour, 
referred to as Quality Points/Per Credit. The meaning and 
quality point value per credit hour of each letter grade is 
shown in the table that follows:

While Basic Skills Advancement courses are assigned 
these grade designations, no quality points or quality hours 
are generated. 

Status Codes 

Status codes describe the state or condition of a course 
appearing on the student's record that has not received a 
grade. Status code indications carry no grade points. The 
types of status codes and the symbols used to indicate them:

I- Incomplete 

"I" designations are received by students who have 
actively pursued a course and are doing passing work at the 
end of the course, but who have not completed the final 
examination and/or other specific course assignments. To 
remove an "I" designation, a student must meet with the 
instructor to make arrangements to complete the course 
work. The instructor must submit the grade within 31 
calendar days after the beginning of the term following the 
term the student received the "I" designation. If an "I" 
status code is not converted within the aforementioned time, 
an "F" will be assigned. Students who have an "I" status on 
their record may not register in that specific course. 
However, if the "I" is changed to an "F", the student may 
then register only once more for that course in order to earn 
a passing grade. 

AU-Audit 

Audit (AU) status indicates enrollment in a course for 
no grade or credit. The fees for audited courses are the 
same as those for courses taken for credit. Audit status must 
be declared no later than the end of the first week of classes 
with approval of the Instructor or Program Chair. 

NW-No-Show Withdrawal 



+ Must be declared at time of registration and cannot be 
used to complete financial assistance eligibility. 

These non-grades ;irc used for the following reasons: 



"NW" will be used for "No-Show" Withdrawals. 

Instructors shall authorize the Registrar to withdraw a 
student from any course for which the student did not report 
to the class for the first two weeks of the term and failed to 
notify the instructor of intention to attend. This 
administrative action will be reflected on the official class 
list. Refunds will not be processed. A petition for a refund, 
with documentation for extenuating circumstances, may be 
filed at the Bursar's Office. Students can petition to be 
reinstated by receiving the approval of the instructor and 
completing a course change request form to add the 
classe(s) in question. 



32 



W-Withdrawal 



V- Verified Competency 



A "W" status code will be used for student and 
academic withdrawals. When students find it necessary to 
withdraw from a course(s), they must give formal 
notification to the Regisu^ar by completing a drop form. 
Student Withdrawal (W) is a terminal status, referring to 
voluntiiry student withdrawal by a student beginning at the 
start of the second week of the course up to the end of the 
week marking the completion of 75 percent of the course. 

After 75 percent of the term has elapsed, a student may 
withdraw only if documented extenuating circumstances 
are submitted to, and approved by, the Dean of 
Instructional Affairs or his/her designee. The "W" status 
code designation will be entered on the student's academic 
records. 

Instructors may also recommend that a student receive 
a "W" status code for student nonattendance in class or 
student disciplinary reasons, with final approval from the 
Chief Administrative Officer or his^er designee. 

S-Satisfactory 

The "S" indicates satisfactory completion of course 
work in situations where a status of either satisfactory or 
unsatisfactory (pass/fail) has been arranged by prior 
agreement. 

Although no grade is assigned, credit is earned. 
Designation of "S" will not count toward degree and 
certificate graduation requirements. 

U-Unsati.sf'actory 

The "U" indicates unsatisfactory completion of course 
work in situations where a status of either satisfactory or 
unsatisfactory (pas.s/fail) has been arranged by prior 
agreement by the Dean of InsU'uctional Affairs or his/ her 
designee. Requests for this type of grading--U--can only be 
made for non-program related courses and must be 
declared at time of regisU'ation. The "U" differs from an 
"F" in that quality points are not computed. 



The "V" indicates satisfactory completion of course 
work in situations such as test-out credit for experience or 
U-aining, or College Level Examination Program (CLEP) . 
Credit gained through this method may be used to satisfy 
degree requirements. This status is approved by the Dean 
of InsUuciional Affairs upon recommendation of a faculty 
advisor, following completion of necessary verification and 
documentation of competency. 

Students who wish to test out of a class should contact 
the program advisor before registering for the class. A fee 
may be charged for the tests. 

The general guidelines for test-out are as follows: 

1 . Test-out examinations should be taken before 
registration for the class for which the test-out is 
attempted. 

2. Test-out examinations should be taken and 
completed at one sitting unless the test is offered in 
two parts, i.e., lab and written exams. 

3. Test-out examinations for specific courses are 
normally attempted only once. 

4. Test-out credits are not included in credit 
computations for Financial Assistance programs or 
student grade point average. 

5. Courses that have been completed cannot be tested 
out of at a later date. Those courses must be retaken 
for academic credit. 

Transfer Credit 

Students can receive credit for courses transferred to 
Ivy Tech State College-Central Indiana Region. Transfer 
credit is assigned following an evaluation of 
equivalence/relevance and is authorized providing the 
credits were earned with grades of A, B, or C, from a 
regionally accredited institution, and are not over 10 years 
old. These credits will be included in earned hours and will 
appear at the beginning of the student's transcript. 
Although counted toward graduation, these credits are not 
used to calculate cumulative GPA. Final authority for 
Transfer Credit is with the Dean of Instructional Affairs, 
upon recommendation of the Department/Program head or 
RegisU"ar. 



33 



Credit Hours 



Grade Point Averages 



Credit is described in scmesler hours (the number of 
credits taken per semester). The number of credits is 
determined by the demands of the course, course woric and 
by the number of conliict hours--lhe hours actually spent in 
the classroom or laboratory. 

Credit Hours/Load 

A credit hour represents at least one hour of lecture, 
three hours of laboratory or three hours of clinical 
instruction per week for the semester. A thrce-crcdit-hour 
lecture course, for example, meets 48 hours during the 
semester (3X16) weeks. An average full-time class load 
per semester in most Ivy Tech State College-Central 
Indiana Region programs consists of 12-15 credit hours. 
To take a class load more than 17 credit hours, a student 
must have the approval ol' the Dean of Instructional Affairs 
or his/her designee. 

Enrollment Status 

Enrollment status is determined by the total semester 
credits being taken: 

Full-time: 12 or more credits per semester 

3/4 time: 9-1 1 credits per semester 

1/2 time: 6-8 credits per semester 

Less than 1/2 time: 1-5 credits per semester 

A first-year student, by definition, is one who has 
completed fewer than 30 semester credit hours; a second- 
year student is one who has completed 30 or more semester 
credit hours. 

Quality Points 

Quality poinLs arc numerical values indicating the 
quality of student performance in credit courses: A=4; B=3; 
C=2; D=l; F=0. The quality points earned for a course 
equal the quality point value limes the number of credits. A 
student who earns an A in a 4-credil course earns 16 quality 
points: the quality point value (4) X the number of credits 
(4) = total quality points (16). 



Beginning Fall, 1990, the GFA is calculated by 
dividing quality points by quality hours. Quality Hours 
include all nonbasic skills advancement courses graded A-F. 

Earned Hours include all credits that can be applied 
toward a degree objective. Attempted Hours include all 
formally enrolled hours. 

Beginning Fall, 1985, all courses except skills 
advancement courses are included in the GFA. 

Improving a Grade 

Students, with the approval of faculty advisors, may 
attempt to improve D or F grades by repeating courses 
(allowable once in most programs). Financial Assistance 
recipients, however, should review their situations carefully 
since payment for repeated courses can be disallowed. 
Permanent student records contain complete files on iall 
activity. The student's grade point average will reflect the 
highest grade earned. 

Petition for Course Exclusion 

Under extenuating circumstances, a student may 
petition the Academic Status Committee to exclude 
semester hours of course work statistics from the cumulative 
GPA calculation. Course statistics that are excluded from 
the cumulative GPA calculation as a result of a petition will 
not be counted as earned and cannot be used to satisfy 
requirements for degree-declared students. Petition forms 
may be obtained from the Regisu-ar's Office. 

Academic Standards of Progress 

Note: This section applies to the College's academic 
standards of progress. Students with financial assistance 
should read the financial assistance section that explains that 
required standards of progress, along with grades, includes 
term progress and maximum time frame. 

Ivy Tech State College-Central Indiana Region has 
established this Policy for Academic Standards and Appeal 
of Standards of Progress. 



34 



1 . A Sludenl who has declared a degree or certificate 
objective and has 15 or more cumulative quality 
hours must maintain a 2.00 minimum cumulative 
GPA to be considered in satisfactory academic 
standing. 

2. A student who fails to maintain satisfactory 
academic progress will be subject to a series of 
intervention activities and related restrictions until 
such time as he/she restores satisfactory progress or 
is dismissed as a degree/certificate seeking student 
due to repeated unsatisfactory progress. The 
intervention strategies and restriction could include, 
but are limited to: (1) reduced courseload, (2) 
required counseling sessions, (3) enrollment in Basic 
Skills Advancement courses, and/or (4) 
disqualification for graduation. 

3. A student who is dismissed for unsatisfactory 
academic progress faces one term of non-enrollment 
as a certificate or degree/declared student prior to 
resuming progress toward that certificate or degree, 
at which time re-enrollment is allowed on a 
probationary status. 

4. A student who is dismissed twice for unsatisfactory 
academic progress will be terminated for up to five 
years as a degree or certficate-declared student 
unless he/she chooses to participate in an extensive 
Basic Skills Advancement program. 

5. Dismissal from one campus constitutes dismissal 
from the College. Petition for readmission must be 
initiated at the site where dismissal occurred via the 
Academic Status Committee. 

6. Satisfactory academic progress is restored when a 
student successfully earns at least six credit hours 
and re-esti>blishes a 2.00 cumulative grade point 
average. 



Academic Problems 

If a student has a problem with a grade, after discussing 
the situation with an instructor, if the problem is still not 
resolved, meets with the program chair. If for some reason 
the problem cannot be resolved at that level, then the student 
consults the department chair and finally the or Divisional 
Chair. After discussion with a Student Affairs Manager or 
Divisional Chair, if the matter is still not resolved, the 
student should contact the Dean of Instructional Affairs. 
The student may be directed to follow the academic appeals 
process if the student still does not agree with the solution. 

Dean's List 

The Dean's List, prepared and published each semester, 
gives recognition to students who achieve a minimum 3.50 
grade point average or higher with no D or F grades while 
earning 12 or more credits during the semester or eight or 
more semester credit hours for the summer session. The 
Dean's List is posted on the bulletin boards in the North 
Meridian Center and on bulletin boards in the Technology 
Center and East Washington Street Center. The Dean's List 
is released to the press after the completion of each 
semester. 

Attendance 

Regular attendance is expected at scheduled class 
meetings or other activities assigned as part of a course of 
instruction. Attendance records are kept by instructors. 

Graduation 

The Associate in Science degree, the Associate in 
Applied Science degree, or the Technical Certificate is 
awarded by the College to students who meet graduation 
and certification eligibility requirements. Graduation 
ceremonies are held each spring. Graduating students are 
charged a fee to cover the cost of the ceremonial cap and 
gown. 



35 



A student is considered eligible for graduation when 
the requirements for graduation or certification have been 
fulfilled in the selected program. Each student entering the 
final semester prior to graduation must complete an 
Application for Graduation form. The application will be 
certified by the student's program advisor and forwarded to 
the Registrar's Office, where the appropriate diploma will 
be prepared. 

To graduate with the Associate in Science Degree, 
Associate in Applied Science Degree or Technical 
Certificate students must: 

1. Successfully complete all courses within 
certification requirements with a cumulative grade 
point index of at least 2.0. 

2. Successful completion of the required number of 
credits. 

3. Completion of at least 1 5 degree crediis as a regular 
student of Ivy Tech, and not through test-out or 
other means of advanced placement. 

4. Satisfaction of all financial obligations due the 
College. 

5. Satisfaction of program accreditation suindards that 
may have additional requirements.
