2 Facts 1999-2000 Catalog 



THE MISSION OF THE COLLEGE 

Lebanon Valley is a small, private, liberal arts college. Its mission arises directly from its 
historical traditions and a relationship with the United Methodist Church. 

The College's aim is to enable our students to become people of broad vision, capable of 
making informed decisions, and prepared for a life of service to others. To that end we seek 
to provide an education that helps students to acquire the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and 
values necessary to live and work in a changing, diverse, and fragile world. 

Through both curricular and co-curricular activities we endeavor to acquaint our students 
with humanity's most significant ideas and accomplishments, to develop their abilities to 
think logically and communicate clearly, to give them practice in precise analysis and 
effective performance, and to enhance their sensitivity to and appreciation of differences 
among human beings. 



Lebanon Valley College aspires to pursue this mission within a community in which caring 
and concern for others is a core value. We value strong and nurturing faculty interacting 
closely with students; encourage individual student development; and affirm the interrelat- 
edness of liberal learning and the ideal of vocation. We regard the cultivation of wisdom, that 
is the capacity of judging rightly in matters of life and conduct, and a life-long love of learning 
as the ultimate rewards of the educational experience. 



The motto of the college is, "You shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free" 

(John 8:32).

4 Undergraduate Information 1999-2000 Catalog 



A $ 100 Administrative Fee will be assessed for withdrawals after the first week of class. 
Part-time students should consult the refund schedule published by the Continuing 
Education Office. 

Refund Policy During First Semester 

A student who is attending Lebanon Valley College for the first time will receive a refund 
according to the federal policy established by the Higher Education Amendments of 1992. 
The pro-rata refund policy applies to new students whose date of withdraw is within the first 
60 percent of the semester for which the student has been billed. This refund policy allows 
for a refund of tuition, fees, room and board for the portion of the semester for which the 
student has been charged that remains in this period but for which the student will not be 
enrolled. A copy of the federal pro-rata refund policy is on file in the Financial Aid Office. 

Alternative Payment Plan 

Lebanon Valley College offers a payment plan for those families who, after exploring 
other options, prefer to spread payments over a 10-month period. An agent has been 
appointed to process deferred payment applications: 

Academic Management Services 

OneAMS Place 
P.O. Box 991 

Swansea, MA 02777-0991 
Phone: 1-800-635-0120 

The college has no financial interest in either of these plans and offers them as a 
convenience to students and parents. 

Continuing Education Office 

Students may enroll part-time at Lebanon Valley College through Continuing Education. 
Students are considered part-time if they are enrolled for 0-11 credit hours per semester. 

The Continuing Education Office offers credit programs on four levels: certificate, 
associate, baccalaureate, and diploma. Certificates are starter programs that approximate the 
beginning of a four-year college experience, ideal spring-boards from which to go on for an 
associate or bachelor' s degree. Diploma programs are intended for persons who have already 
been awarded a bachelor's degree in one discipline and desire to study another discipline in 
some depth. 

A second bachelor's degree may be awarded to adult students who already have received 
a bachelor of arts or sciences from Lebanon Valley or another accredited college or 
university. In such cases, students must only complete the major requirements for the second 
degree or a minimum of 30 credits, whichever is greater. 

Courses taught through Continuing Education are offered during evenings, weekend and 
summer sessions on the main campus in Annville and through our Lancaster Center on the 
Franklin & Marshall College Campus. The Continuing Education Office publishes course 
schedules for the fall, spring and summer sessions. To obtain copies of course schedules or 
get detailed information on all academic programs for adults call 7 1 7-867-62 1 3 in Annville 
or 717-399-4419 in Lancaster or write Continuing Education Office, Lebanon Valley 
College, Annville, PA 17003-0501.

UNDERGRADUATE ACADEMIC 
REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES 

Attendance at Lebanon Valley College is a privilege, not a right. To provide the necessary 
atmosphere in which teaching and learning can occur, the college expects that the conduct 
of all campus citizens will conform to accepted standards. The college has the right to require 
the withdrawal of any student whose actions are inimical to the purposes of the institution. 
The following academic regulations are announcements and do not constitute a contract 
between the student and the college. The college reserves the right to change these regulations 
and procedures as it deems necessary for the accomplishment of its purposes, but wherever 
possible, a student will proceed to graduation under the regulations in effect at the time of his/ 
her entrance at the college. 

Degrees 

Baccalaureate Degrees 

Lebanon Valley College confers five baccalaureate degrees. Bachelor of Arts for students 
completing requirements in the following major programs: American studies, economics, 
English, French, German, historical communications, history, music, philosophy, political 
science, psychology, religion, sociology, Spanish and certain individualized majors. 

Bachelor of Science for students completing requirements in the following major 
programs: accounting, actuarial science, biochemistry, biology, business administration, 
chemistry, computer science, cooperative engineering, cooperative forestry, elementary 
education, health care management, hotel management, international business, mathematics, 
music education, physics, psychobiology, and certain individualized majors. Bachelor of 
Science in Chemistry, Bachelor of Science in Medical Technology, and Bachelor of Music: 
Emphasis in Music Recording Technology for students completing requirements for the 
appropriate major program. 

Associate Degrees 

Through the Continuing Education Office part-time students may earn the Associate of 
Science degree in accounting, general studies or business administration, or the Associate of 
Arts degree in general studies. 

Privacy of Student Records 

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 is a federal law which provides 
students the right to review their academic records, the right to challenge the contents of their 
records, and the right to confidentiality of their records. 

The Buckley Amendment allows the disclosure of basic directory data and, in the case of 
athletes, extends that information to relevant personal data and accomplishments. The 
College Relations Office uses permissible information from students' records to report on 
social and academic accomplishments. 

Annually, Lebanon Valley College informs students of the Family Educational Rights and 
Privacy Act of 1 974, as amended. This Act, with which the institution intends to comply fully, 
was designated to protect the privacy of education records, to establish the right of students 
to inspect and review their education records, and to provide guidelines for the correction of 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 7 



inaccurate or misleading data through informal and formal hearings. Students also have the 
right to file complaints with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA) 
concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the act. 

Local policy explains in detail the procedures to be used by the institution for compliance 
with the provisions of the Act. Copies of the policy can be found in the following offices: 
Office of the Registrar, Office of Student Services and Office of the Dean of the Faculty. The 
policy is also printed in the Faculty Advising Handbook. The offices mentioned also maintain 
a Directory of Records which lists all education records maintained on students by this 
institution. 

Questions concerning the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act may be referred to 
the Registrar's Office. 

Credit Hours 

A credit hour is the unit to measure academic progress. Each course has a credit 
designation approximately equal to the number of hours to be spent in class each week. A 
course requiring three hours of class attendance each week will carry three credit hours. 
Credit for laboratories is generally awarded at one-half the regular rate. 

Graduation Requirements 

Candidates for a baccalaureate degree shall complete successfully 120 credit hours 
including the requirements for the general education program (see page 18), and the 
requirements for majors and minors as appropriate. Credit hours are accumulated in three 
separate categories: general education requirements, major requirements, and electives. 

In addition, candidates shall complete successfully two units of physical education 
selected from a list of approved activities. Students shall not satisfy the physical education 
requirement by taking the same activity unit twice. Students shall have a maximum of one 
physical education unit waived for successful completion of any of the following: one season 
of a varsity sport, one semester of marching band, or one semester of military science. 
Continuing education students are exempt from the physical education requirement. 

Candidates for an associate's degree must accumulate at least 60 credit hours including 
the course work appropriate to their major program. Fifteen of the last 1 8 credit hours toward 
the degree must be in residence. 

Candidates for a degree must obtain a cumulative grade point average of 2.00 and a major 
grade point average of 2.00. 

The general education program is that part of the curriculum that is shared by all students 
in all majors. The required courses reflect 54-56 credit hours. 

The major programs each require at least 24 credit hours of course work. 

Electives are those courses selected by the student that reflect neither major nor general 
education requirements. 

Candidates for the bachelor's degrees must also take in residence 30 credit hours of the 
36 taken immediately prior to graduation. Course work taken in all of the college's programs 
qualify as work done in residence. 

Advising Program 

Each student has a faculty adviser whose role is to counsel about registration procedures, 
course selections, academic requirements, and regulations. The student is required to obtain 

8 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1999-2000 Catalog 



the adviser's counsel and approval before registration, withdrawal, election of pass/fail 
option, and/or change in credit/audit status. 

Arrangement of Schedules 

Each student arranges a semester program of courses in consultation with, and by approval 
of, his or her faculty adviser. Students already in attendance do this during registration 
periods. New students accomplish this on orientation days. 

Limit of Hours 

To be classified as full time, a student must take at least 12 credit hours in a semester. 
Seventeen credit hours is the maximum permitted without approval from the student's 
adviser and permission of the registrar. Audited courses are counted in determining the 
course load, but music organizations are not. To be permitted to take more than 17 credits the 
student should have a cumulative grade point average of 3 .0 or higher, or be a senior. Students 
shall pay the prevailing tuition rate for each credit hour beyond 17 (not counting music 
organizations). 

Class Standing 

Students are classified academically at the beginning of each year. Membership in the 
sophomore, junior or senior classes is granted to students who have earned a minimum of 28. 
56, or 84 credit hours respectively. 

Transfer Credit 

A student applying for advanced standing after having attended another accredited 
institution shall send an official transcript to the dean of admission. If requested, the student 
must provide copies of the appropriate catalogs for the years of attendance at the other 
institution or institutions. 

Credits are accepted for transfer provided the grades are C- ( 1 .67) or better and the work 
is equivalent or similar to work offered at Lebanon Valley College. Grades thus transferred 
count for credit hours only, not for quality points. 

A candidate for admission holding an associate degree from a regionally accredited 
college can be admitted with full acceptance of course work at the previously attended 
institution. Course work in the major field, however, for which the applicant has received a 
D shall not be counted toward fulfilling the major requirement. 

Because Lebanon Valley College is a liberal arts institution, consideration of full 
acceptance of the associate degree will be granted with the understanding that the candidate 
has followed a basic course of study compatible with the curriculum and academic programs 
of the college and has been enrolled in a transfer program. A total of 60 credits will be 
accepted for an associate degree and 57 credits for a diploma program. A maximum of 90 
credit hours will be accepted toward a baccalaureate degree. 

In most instances the applicant may be expected to complete the baccalaureate degree 
within two years. However, when the requirements of a particular major field or the nature 
of the previous study demand additional work beyond two years, the applicant will normally 
be notified at the time of admission. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 9 



Discontinuance of Courses 

The college reserves the right to withdraw or discontinue any course. 

Registration and Preregistration 

Students are required to register for courses on designated days of each semester. 
Preference is given to upperclass students in the preregistration process to ensure registration 
in courses required for their major fields of study. Students who register later than the 
designated times shall be charged a fee. Students desiring to register later than one week after 
the opening of the semester will be admitted only by special permission of the registrar. 

On entering Lebanon Valley College students indicate that they are open or that they have 
a particular intended major. Students may make a formal declaration of major during the 
second semester of their freshmen year, and must make a formal declaration by the time they 
have completed 60 credit hours. 

Change of Registration 

Change of registration, including pass/fail elections, changes of course hours credit, 
changes from credit to audit and vice versa, must be approved by signature of the adviser. In 
most instances, registration for a course shall not be permitted after the course has been in 
session for one full week. With the permission of the adviser, a student may withdraw from 
a course during the first ten (10) weeks of the semester. However, first semester freshmen 
may withdraw from a course at any time through the last day of semester classes with 
permission of the adviser. A fee is charged for every change of course made at the student's 
request after Add/Drop Day. 

Auditing Courses 

Students may register to audit courses with the approval of their academic adviser. 
Audited courses are counted in considering the course load relative to the limit of hours which 
may result in an overload charge. No grade or credit is given for an audited course, but the 
registrar will record the audit on the transcript if the student attends regularly. A change of 
registration from credit to audit or from audit to credit must be accomplished by the end of 
the tenth week of semester classes. 

Pass/Fail 

After attaining sophomore standing (28 credit hours) a student may elect to take up to two 
courses per semester and one per summer session on pass/fail basis; however, only six such 
courses can be counted toward graduation requirements. No courses elected by students to 
be taken pass/fail may be used to meet the requirements of the general education program, 
the major(s), the minor(s), or secondary education certification. A student may select or 
cancel a pass/fail registration any time during the first 10 weeks of a semester. Passing with 
honors will be designated by the grade PH indicating that a grade of B+ or higher was earned. 

Repetition of Courses 

A student may repeat as often as desired, for a higher grade, a previously taken course, 
subject to the following provisions: the course must have been taken in courses staffed by the 
college at the Annville campus or one of the satellite sites. Semester hours credit are given only 

10 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1999-2000 Catalog 



once. The grade received each time taken is computed in the semester grade point average. 
Each semester grade report will show hours credit each time passed, but the total hours toward 
a degree will be equal only to the semester hours credit for the course. For a course previously 
passed P/F, the grade received in the subsequent registration for regular grade is the "higher 
grade." Each grade received remains on the permanent record and a notation is made thereon 
that the course has been repeated. 

Concurrent Courses 

A student enrolled for a degree at Lebanon Valley College may not carry courses 
concurrently at any other institution without prior consent of his or her adviser and the 
registrar. 

External Summer Courses 

A student registered at Lebanon Valley College may not obtain credit for the courses taken 
during the summer at another college, unless such courses have prior approval of his or her 
adviser and the registrar. 

Attendance Policy 

Each student is responsible for knowing and meeting all requirements for each course, 
including regular class attendance. At the opening of each semester the instructors shall 
clearly inform students of class attendance regulations. Violations of those regulations shall 
make the student liable to receive a grade of F in the course. Upon the recommendation of 
the instructor and the approval of the registrar a grade of W will be assigned during the first 
10 weeks of the semester, and an F will be assigned after that date. 

Excused absences do not absolve students from the necessity of fulfilling all course 
requirements. 

In-Absentia 

The college treats students in domestic or foreign study programs and in the Washington 
Semester Program as students-in-absentia. Any student who studies for a semester or 
academic year at another institution but with the intent of returning to the college is 
considered a matriculated student. A student desiring in-absentia status should complete the 
form in the registrar' s office and secure the approval of the adviser, the registrar and the dean 
of international programs. Students will receive information on registration and room sign- 
up after they notify the registrar of their address abroad or in the United States. 

Leave of Absence 

For reasons of health or in other compelling circumstances students may request a 
voluntary leave from the college for one or two semesters. A student desiring such a leave 
should complete the form available from the registrar and secure the approval of the vice 
president and dean of the faculty. Students on leave are regarded as continuing students and 
retain their status for registration or room sign-up. Students on leave will receive information 
on those procedures and will be asked to verify their return. The college reserves the right to 
require a leave of absence for medical reasons at any time it is deemed reasonably necessary 
to protect the student, other students, members of the college community, or the interests of 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1 1 



the college itself. Before a student returns from a medical leave of absence, a clearance 
interview with one of the counseling psychologists, the dean of students or the vice president 
and dean of the faculty as well as additional documentation may be required. 

Withdrawal from College and Readmission 

To withdraw from college a student must complete an official withdrawal form obtained 
from the registrar. Continuing education students must complete an official withdrawal form 
obtained from the director of continuing education. Readmission of a student requires written 
permission from the associate dean of the faculty. 

Second Bachelor's Degrees 

A person who has earned a bachelor's degree from Lebanon Valley College or another 
accredited college or university may earn a second bachelor's degree by meeting the 
following requirements: 

1 . A minimum of 30 additional undergraduate credits must be completed successfully at 
Lebanon Valley. 

2. All graduation requirements for the major of the second degree must be met satisfac- 
torily. 

3. Course work completed successfully as part of the first degree program may be used 
to satisfy the graduation requirements of the second major. 

4. No course already taken in the first degree program may be repeated in the second 
degree program. 

5. No more than three credits from student teaching (SED 440, ELM 440 and MSC 441) 
may be counted toward a second degree. 

6. Graduates from other accredited colleges or universities shall not be required to meet 
any Lebanon Valley general education requirements. 

7. No courses in the second degree program may be met satisfactorily through such non- 
traditional means as challenge examinations, CLEP, or credit for life experience. 

8. No more than three credits from internships may be counted toward a second degree. 

9. No courses in the second degree program may be taken Pass/Fail. 

Undergraduate Non-Traditional Credit 

Lebanon Valley College recognizes the ability of highly motivated students to master 
specific areas of study on their own initiative and provides programs to allow these students 
the opportunity to gain credit. Any matriculated student may earn a maximum of 30 credits 
toward a bachelor' s degree or a maximum of 1 5 credits toward an associate' s degree through 
non-traditional means (challenge exams, advanced placement, CLEP, and credit for life 
experience). All non-traditional means of examination are graded satisfactory (S) or 
unsatisfactory (U). An unsatisfactory grade on any non-traditional examination will not be 
recorded on the permanent record. 

Challenge Exam Policy 

Many LVC courses can be challenged for credit by examination. Full-time students should 
request challenge examinations through their academic advisors. Part-time students and 
those students enrolled through continuing education should make application for challenge 
exams through the continuing education office. All requests must be approved by the registrar 
and the chairperson of the department in which the course is listed. 

12 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1999-2000 Catalog 



Challenge exams are considered to be comprehensive examinations in the subject area. 
The grading criteria for challenge exams will be determined by each department. The exact 
nature of the examination will be determined by the faculty member and chairperson of the 
department involved and may include any means of evaluation normally employed by the 
department. There is a fee for preparation and grading of each challenge exam, and it is 
charged without regard to the test results. 

Challenge exams may not be taken by students who have received any grade in a course 
equivalent to or more advanced than the course for which the student is requesting credit by 
examination. Challenge exams may not be used for the purpose of acquiring credit for a 
course previously failed. Practicums, internships, seminars, research courses, independent 
study, writing intensive courses, and courses with laboratory components are normally not 
subject to credit by examination. Individual departments may have additional criteria 
regarding challenge exams. Consult the chairperson of the department in which the course 
is listed for specific information. 

Advanced Placement Policy 

Advanced placement with credit in appropriate courses will be granted to entering 
students who make scores of 4 or 5 on College Board Advanced Placement examinations. For 
scores of 3, final determination is made by the appropriate department. 

Advanced Placement without credit may be granted on the basis of the Achievement Tests 
of the College Board examinations or such other proficiency tests as may be determined 
appropriate by the registrar and by the chairperson of the department. 

CLEP (College Level Examination Program) Policy 

Credit shall be granted to those students who score well on CLEP examinations that are 
approved by the college. To receive credit, a student must score above the 50th percentile on 
the objective section and above a C, as determined by the appropriate academic department 
for general and subject examinations. The English composition essay is required with a 
minimum score of 480 and at the 80th percentile for this CLEP examination. 

A maximum of six credits shall be awarded for each examination; of these credits, only 
three may be applied to the general education requirements in the appropriate area. Credit 
shall be granted only to students who have matriculated at Lebanon Valley College. 
Normally, requests for CLEP credit must be approved by the registrar before the student has 
completed 30 credits. 

Credit for Life Experience Policy 

Lebanon Valley College provides for the awarding of undergraduate academic credit for 
knowledge acquired through non-academic experience in subjects in the college curriculum. 
The experience should have a direct relation to the material taught in a course in the college 
curriculum and should extend over a sufficient period to provide substantive knowledge in 
the relevant area. Matriculated students who believe they qualify for such credit may petition 
the appropriate department through their academic advisers. Students enrolled in the 
continuing education program must petition through the continuing education office. This 
petition must: 

(1) detail the relevant experience in question 

(2) provide appropriate supporting evidence 

(3) note the equivalent college course by department and number 

(4) state the number of credit hours sought. 

Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 13 



The appropriate department will consult with the academic adviser or the continuing 
education office to determine the best means (interview, examination, portfolio, etc.) for 
evaluating the experience. 

Approval of experiential credit for full-time students must be made in writing over the 
signatures of the academic adviser, the appropriate department chairperson, and the 
vice president and dean of the faculty. Approval of experiential credit for students enrolled 
through the continuing education program must be made in writing over the signatures of the 
director of continuing education, the appropriate department chairperson, and the vice 
president and dean of the faculty. 

Experiential credit cannot exceed six credit hours in one academic year and cannot exceed 
a maximum of twelve credit hours in the degree program. 

Grading Systems and Grade Point Averages 

Student work is graded A (excellent), B (good), C (satisfactory), D (requirements and 
standards met a minimum level), F (course requirements not met). For each credit hour in a 
course, students receive the following quality points: 



A 


4.00 


A- 


3.67 


B+ 


3.33 


B 


3.00 


B- 


2.67 


C+ 


2.33 



C 


2.00 


C- 


1.67 


D+ 


1.33 


D 


1.00 


D- 


.67 


F 


.00 



F carries no credit or quality points, but grades of F are used in calculating the grade point 
averages. The cumulative grade point average is calculated by dividing the quality points by 
the credit hours completed. 

Candidates for a degree must obtain a cumulative grade point average of 2.00, and a major 
grade point average of 2.00. 

Continuing education degree candidates admitted before July 1, 1989 must meet gradu- 
ation requirements by earning a cumulative grade point average of 1.75. All students and 
continuing education candidates admitted after July 1, 1989 must meet graduation require- 
ments by earning a grade point average of 2.00. All students must have a 2.00 grade point 
average in their major, any second major, and any minor. 

A student may not take a course that has a prerequisite course he/she has failed. 

In addition to the above grades, the symbols I and W are used. I indicates that the work 
is incomplete (certain required work postponed by the student for substantial reason with the 
prior consent of the instructor), but otherwise satisfactory. This work must be completed 
within the first eight weeks of the next semester, or the I will be changed to an F. Appeals for 
an extension of time must be presented to the registrar by the first week of the next semester. 
W indicates withdrawal from a course through the tenth week of semester classes, except for 
first-semester freshmen who may withdraw through the last day of the semester. For physical 
education a grade of either S (satisfactory) or U (unsatisfactory) is recorded. 

Once a grade has been recorded it may not be changed without the approval of the 
instructor and the registrar. Students who feel the grade may be inaccurate should contact the 
instructor at once, but in no case later than the end of the semester following the course in 
question. 



14 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1999-2000 Catalog 



Grades are sent to the parents and/or guardians of full-time students who meet the Internal 
Revenue Service regulations for dependent status. Independent full-time students must 
notify the registrar and provide adequate documentation of their status. 

Academic and Graduation Honors 

The Dean 's List 

Students achieving a 3.40 or higher grade point average while carrying at least 12 credit 
hours for grade shall be named to the Dean's List at the end of each semester. 

Continuing education students shall be named to the Continuing Education Dean's List 
by meeting the following terms: 

(1) must be matriculated in certificate, degree or teacher certification programs 

(2) must be enrolled for at least six credit hours 

(3) must achieve a minimum semester grade point average of 3.40.

Departmental Honors 

All major programs provide the opportunity for departmental honors work during the 
junior and senior years. For specific information, interested students should contact the 
appropriate department chairperson. The minimal requirements for departmental honors are 
a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0, both at the time of application and the time of graduation; 
a written thesis; an oral presentation; and approval by a majority vote of the full-time 
members of the department. This project is undertaken on a subject of the student's own

Phi Alpha Epsilon 

Students graduating with grade point averages of 3.50 or higher are eligible for induction 
into Phi Alpha Epsilon, provided they have earned a minimum of 60 credit hours of residence 
work. 

Academic Dishonesty 

Students are expected to uphold the principles of academic honesty. Academic dishonesty 
shall not be tolerated. Once action has been taken on a matter of academic dishonesty, the 
student forfeits the right to withdraw from the course. 

For the first academic dishonesty offense, no action shall be taken beyond failure from the 
course, at the option of the faculty member. A letter of warning shall be sent to the student 
by the vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, explaining the policy 
regarding further offenses, and the right of appeal. 

For a second offense, failure in the course is mandatory, and the dean shall so inform the 
faculty member(s) involved. Additionally, the vice president for academic affairs and dean 
of the faculty has the authority to take further action, up to and including expulsion from the 
college. 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Regulations 15 



For a third offense, failure in the course and expulsion from the college are mandatory. 

The vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty has the authority to make 
a determination of whether actions or reasonable suspicions of actions by a student constitute 
academic dishonesty "offenses" as above. 

Information related to academic dishonesty offenses must be passed by the faculty 
member to the vice president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty. The dean shall 
retain the information for at least as long as the student involved is enrolled at the college. 
Information and evidence concerning academic dishonesty are the property of the college. 

All actions against a student for academic dishonesty offenses can be appealed to the vice 
president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, who will serve as final arbiter. 

Academic Probation and Suspension 

At the conclusion of each semester the Dean's Advisory Council meets to review the 
academic performance of all undergraduate students. The members of the council are the vice 
president for academic affairs and dean of the faculty, the vice president for enrollment and 
student services, the dean of student services, and the registrar. 

To maintain themselves in good academic standing at the College, students must achieve 
minimum cumulative grade point averages appropriate to their progress toward their degree, 
and they must complete coursework at a regular and sustained pace. Minimum cumulative 
GPAs are as follows: 

Semester Hours Completed Required Cumulative GPA 
1-27 1.60 

28-55 1.70 

56-83 1.80 

84 or more 1.90 

At the conclusion of each semester, the College examines students' academic records. 
Students who have not achieved the above minimum grade point averages will be given an 
Academic Warning, placed on Probation or Academically Suspended from the College. 

Academic Warning. The first time students fall below the required cumulative GPA as 
listed above, they will be given Academic Warning. Academic Warning constitutes a formal 
notification that a student's academic performance is weak and that he/she needs to devote 
increased attention to academic work. Students receiving Academic Warning are cautioned 
that unless they achieve an acceptable cumulative grade point average, they will be placed 
on Probation and thereby lose the privilege of participating in extracurricular activities 
(including such activities as intercollegiate sports, student government, campus media, student 
clubs, and Greek and service organizations). 

Probation. Students who fall a second time below the required cumulative GPA (whether 
in consecutive or non-consecutive semesters) will be placed on Probation. A student on 
Probation will not be permitted to take part in extracurricular activities. 

Final Probation. Students who fall a third time below the required cumulative GPA 
(whether in consecutive or non-consecutive semesters) will be placed on Final Probation. A 
student on Final Probation will not be permitted to take part in extracurricular activities, 
and the student will be informed that unless the student restores himself/herself to good 
academic standing and maintains that status, the student will be suspended from the College. 

Academic Suspension. Students will be suspended academically from the College when 
(1) they fall a fourth time below the required cumulative GPA (whether in consecutive or 



16 Undergraduate Academic Regulations 1999-2000 Catalog 



nonconsecutive semesters); (2) they fail to achieve a cumulative GPA of at least 0.75 at the 
conclusion of any semester; (3) they have not earned by the conclusion of the second and 
subsequent semesters of full-time enrollment a total of at least 6 credit hours of coursework 
for each semester completed. Students suspended will not be permitted to return for at least 
the full subsequent semester (fall or spring). To request reinstatement, students must submit 
a written petition to the Associate Dean of the Faculty. A suspended student who returns to 
the College and who is suspended again for academic reasons will be regarded as permanently 
separated from the College. 

Veterans' Services 

Veterans who are eligible to receive educational benefits must report their enrollment to 
the registrar after they register for each semester or summer session. The registrar will then 
submit certification to the Veterans Administration. 

Veterans who are attending Lebanon Valley College for the first time must complete the 
appropriate forms in the registrar' s office before certification will be sent to the Veterans 
Administration. 

Students eligible for veterans benefits who remain on academic probation for two 
consecutive semesters must be reported to the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans with 
questions about the college or their status with the college should contact the registrar.

Pre-Professional Programs 

Pre-Law Program 

Although there is no pre-law major or department, a pre-law student is advised to take 
certain courses which will help prepare him or her for law school and a legal career. Each 
student should confer with the pre-law adviser in selecting a specific pattern of courses 
appropriate to that student's objectives. Courses in the pre-law program include: ACT 161; 
BUS 371, 372; ECN 101, 102; PSC 111, 112, 315, 316, and415. 

Pre-Medical, Pre-Dentistry, P re-Veterinary 

Lebanon Valley College offers pre-professional preparation in the medical (medicine, 
osteopathy, optometry, podiatry, pharmacy, chiropractic and dentistry) and veterinary fields. 
Students interested in one of these careers usually follow a science curriculum with a major 
in biochemistry, biology, chemistry, physics or psychobiology. 

In addition to the basic natural sciences suited to advanced professional study, the student 
who is interested in veterinary medicine may participate in a cooperative program between 
the college and local veterinarians, specializing in both small and large animal medicine. 
Students not only receive credit for the work, but also gain valuable experience in the field. 

A health professions committee coordinates the various plans of study in addition to 
offering advice and assistance to those persons interested in health professions careers. 

Lebanon Valley College graduates have been admitted to some of the nation's finest 
schools including Johns Hopkins University Medical School, University of Virginia, Cornell 
University, The University of Pennsylvania, The University of Pittsburgh, Jefferson Medical 
School, The Pennsylvania State University Medical School at Hershey, Temple University, 
The University of Maryland, The Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine, The 
Pennsylvania College of Podiatric Medicine and the Pennsylvania College of Optometry. 

Individualized Major 

The option of an individualized major is available to students who desire a field of 
concentration which is not substantially addressed by any one department. The faculty 
represents a diverse set of interests and perspectives that provides a considerable resource for 
those students who would like to develop a major around concerns that do not fall into 
traditional disciplinary areas. As a liberal arts institution, the college and its faculty are 
willing to help a student develop a program of study using interdisciplinary courses. 

A student planning an individualized major should prepare an application which includes

Internships 

An internship is a practical and professional work experience that allows students to 
participate in the operations of business, industry, education, government, or not-for-profit 
organizations. Internships provide students with opportunities to integrate their classroom 
learning with on-the-job experiences and to test practical applications of their liberal arts 
education in a variety of settings. 

To be eligible for an internship sponsored by an academic department or program, a 
student generally will have junior or senior standing. Students must request and receive 
permission from departmental chairpersons or program directors to enroll in internships. The 
student must also enlist a faculty internship supervisor from the department sponsoring the 
internship and an on-site internship supervisor from the internship location. Application 
forms for internships are available in the office of the registrar. The application form shall 
be completed by the student and approved by the student's academic adviser, faculty 
internship supervisor, on-site internship supervisor, and the department chairperson prior to 
registration. 

For each semester hour of credit, the intern should invest at least 45 hours of time at the 
internship location. Academic departments and programs establish other specific criteria and 
procedures for internships. In addition to the practical on-site experience, internships have 
an academic component which may include readings, reports, journals, seminars, and/or 
faculty conferences. A student may enroll for 1-12 credit hours of internship during any one 
semester. A student may use a maximum of 12 credit hours of internship to meet graduation 
requirements. All internships have a course number of 400. 

Independent Study 

Independent study provides an opportunity to undertake a program of supervised reading, 
research, or creative work not incorporated in existing formal courses. The independent study 
should result in a formal document. Independent study shall not be used to approximate an 
existing course or to cover projects more properly described as internships. Junior or senior 
standing and a minimum GPA of 2.00 are required. 

For one semester hour of credit, the independent study student should invest at least 45 
clock hours of time in reading, research, or report writing. The independent study involves 
a contract between the student and the faculty member (contract instructor) who will oversee 
the study. Written application forms regarding the independent study are available in the 
office of the registrar. The forms must be completed by the student and approved by the 
student's faculty adviser, the contract instructor and the department chairperson. 

Students may enroll in a maximum of three credit hours per independent study in any one 
semester. A maximum of six credit hours in independent study may be used toward the 
graduation requirements. All independent studies have a course number of 500. 

Tutorial Study 

Tutorial study provides students with a special opportunity to take an existing formal 
course in the curricula that is not scheduled that semester or summer session. Students 
desiring a tutorial study must have an appropriate member of the faculty agree to supervise 
the study on a one-on-one basis. 

For one semester hour of credit, the student should invest at least 45 clock hours of time 



Lebanon Valley College Undergraduate Academic Programs 25 



in the tutorial study. The tutorial study essentially involves a contract between the student and 
the faculty adviser. The typical tutorial study involves readings, research, report writing, 
faculty conferences, and examinations. All tutorial study courses have the same course 
number as the existing formal catalog course. 

Special Topics Courses 

From time to time, departments may offer Special Topics courses using the following 
course numbers: 290-298, 390-398, 490^4-98 and 590. Special Topics courses are formal 
courses that are not listed permanently in the curricula and that are offered infrequently. 
These courses examine comparatively narrow subjects that may be topical or special interest. 
Several different topics may be taught in one semester or academic year. A specific course 
title shall be used in each instance and shall be so noted on the student record. 

Study Abroad 

Lebanon Valley College has established its own study abroad programs for students 
majoring in all subjects. All programs insure a cultural immersion experience for students, 
with several programs, open to language majors and non-language majors, also offering a 
language-enhancement opportunity. These programs are located in London, New Zealand, 
Salamanca, Montpellier, and Cologne. Lebanon Valley also has an exchange affiliation with 
Anglia Polytechnic University in England, which allows any major to take introductory or 
advanced courses there while an equal number of British students study at the Annville 
campus. While students may study anywhere in the world, those who attend one of Lebanon 
Valley's programs keep all financial aid, including Lebanon Valley scholarships, which 
insures that students pay the same fees for tuition, room, and board at any of the Lebanon 
Valley programs. Further information may be obtained at the Office of International 
Programs, HUM 108, Ext. 6248. See In- Absentia on page 11. 

Washington Semester Program

DEPARTMENT OF CHEMISTRY 

Chemistry Program 

Chemistry is the "central science" that provides the fundamental understanding needed 
for protecting our environment, maximizing the yield from limited natural resources, 
improving our health, and creating new materials for tomorrow's products. Indeed, chemis- 
try is essential to understanding life itself. 

Career opportunities in chemistry are numerous and diverse. Many students enter 
industrial or governmental laboratories where they find positions in environmental analysis, 
quality control, or research and development. Possibilities outside of the laboratory include 
teaching, sales, marketing, technical writing, business, and law. Many chemistry students 
continue their education in graduate school in chemistry or biochemistry, or in professional 
schools in the areas of medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine. 

The Department of Chemistry is located on the upper two floors of the Garber Science 
Center. Major scientific equipment available to students includes a superconducting nuclear 
magnetic resonance spectrometer, a liquid scintillation counter, a fourier transform infrared 
spectrometer, a high performance liquid chromatographic system, a diode-array UV-visible 
spectrophotometer, a Raman spectrophotometer, a gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer, 
and an atomic absorption spectrophotometer. Computing facilities available to students in 
the department include 12 computers in the Molecular Modeling Laboratory. 

The department encourages students to discover the excitement and challenge of labora- 
tory research. Research programs are conducted during both the academic year and the 
summer. Students are paid for summer research either from college funds or from grants that 
professors receive to support their projects. 

Two degrees are available to those interested in chemistry, and one for those interested in 
biochemistry. The Bachelor of Science in Chemistry is the more demanding of the two 
degrees in chemistry, and is recognized by the American Chemical Society. This degree has 
a required research component and is recommended for students who wish to become 
practicing chemists or enroll in graduate school. Other students opt for the standard Bachelor 
of Science, majoring in chemistry. 

The major in biochemistry is offered jointly with the Biology Department. For the major 
program and course descriptions in biochemistry, see page 34. 

The chemistry department participates in the "3+2" Engineering program and directs the 
chemical engineering track. For details see Cooperative Programs page 22.

DEPARTMENT OF FOREIGN LANGUAGES 

The study of a foreign language has three aims: to develop fluency in the basic 
communication skills, to provide an understanding of the cultural heritage of the people who 
use the language, and to understand language as the fundamental medium by which 
humankind thinks and interacts. 

The Department of Foreign Languages prepares the language major for a career in a 
variety of fields: teaching, diplomatic and government service, foreign trade, business and 
social service. For many of these careers the study of a foreign language is often combined 
with majors in other disciplines. 

The department encourages students to avail themselves of the college's opportunities for 
foreign travel and study, particularly Lebanon Valley College programs in Cologne, 
Germany; Montpellier, France; and Salamanca, Spain. 

The Department of Foreign Languages offers majors in French, German and Spanish, 
secondary teacher certification in foreign language, as well as minors in the three languages.

DEPARTMENT OF MATHEMATICAL SCIENCES 

The Lebanon Valley College Department of Mathematical Sciences has long offered a 
rigorous mathematics program within the context of a liberal arts education. The increasing 
national need for quantitatively prepared individuals makes our program even more attrac- 
tive today. Computer scientists, mathematics and computer science teachers, college 
professors, actuaries, operations research analysts, and statisticians are in high and continu- 
ing demand. In addition, the mental discipline and problem solving abilities developed in the 
study of mathematics are excellent preparation for numerous and varied areas of work and 
study. 

The Department was cited in the Mathematical Association of America's 1995 publica- 
tion, Models that Work, for its exceptional program and for its service to students. It offers 
majors in Actuarial Science, Computer Science, and Mathematics; secondary teaching 
certification in Mathematics; and minors in Mathematics and Computer Science. 

Departmental graduates have earned doctorates in economics, physics, statistics, and 
computer science as well as mathematics. Other graduates have completed law school. Many 
graduates have earned the designation of Fellow of the Society of Actuaries or the Casualty 
Actuarial Society. 

Mathematical Sciences Department majors are active in student government, athletics, 
musical organizations, and other activities. The Department is always well represented in the 
list of students named to Who's Who in American Colleges and Universities. There are two 
active student clubs, the Math Club and the Computer Club. 

The Mathematical Science Department also directs the Computer Engineering track in the 
3+2 Engineering Program. For details see Cooperative Programs on page 22. 

Actuarial Science Program 

Actuaries are business professionals who use expertise in mathematics, economics, 
finance, and management to define, analyze, and solve financial and social problems. 
Actuaries are employed by insurance companies and consulting firms, pension/benefit 
consulting firms, large corporations, and federal and state government agencies. Actuarial 
credentials, which are earned after obtaining a bachelors degree, result from completing the 
rigorous education and examination program administered by either the Casualty Actuarial 
Society or the Society of Actuaries. 

The Actuarial Science program at Lebanon Valley College was established in the 1960's 
and is coordinated by Professor Hearsey who is an Associate of the Society of Actuaries. With 
over 120 graduates working in the profession, including nearly 40 fellows and 30 associates, 
Lebanon Valley is recognized as having one of the leading undergraduate actuarial education 
programs in the East. 

With its recently revised curriculum, LVC is prepared to help actuarial students prepare 
for the new curricula of the professional actuarial societies which will be in place starting in 
the year 2000. The LVC program is designed to introduce students to material on the first four 
examinations in the new Society of Actuaries and Casualty Actuarial Society examination 
programs. 

The rigorous standards of the program, including the required passing of at least one 
actuarial examination, has resulted in a nearly 100% placement record of LVC actuarial 
science graduates in professional actuarial positions.

MILITARY SCIENCE PROGRAM 

The Military Science Program adds another dimension to a Lebanon Valley College 
liberal arts education with courses that develop a student's ability to organize, motivate and 
lead. 

Participation in military science courses during the freshman and sophomore years results 
in no military obligation. Courses during these years orient students on the various roles of 
Army officers. Specifically, these courses stress self-development: written and oral commu- 
nication skills, leadership, bearing and self-confidence. 

Individuals who elect to continue in the program during the junior and senior years will 
receive a commission as a second lieutenant in the United States Army, The U.S. Army 
Reserve or The Army National Guard, upon graduation. Then they will serve three months 
to four years in the active Army, depending upon the type of commission. 

Options are available for those individuals who encounter scheduling conflicts or who 
desire to begin participation after their freshman year. Contact 2LT Timothy J. Ferguson, 
DSN 242-3303 or Dickinson College, 717-245-1221, for further information. 

Program participants may take part in various enrichment activities during the academic 
year: rappelling, rifle qualification, white-water rafting, leadership exercises, land naviga- 
tion, orientation trips and formal social functions. Program participants may also apply for 
special training courses during the summer: airborne, air assault and northern warfare 
schools. 

Financial Assistance: Books and equipment for military science courses and the ROTC 
program are provided free of charge to all cadets. All juniors and seniors in the ROTC 
program (Advanced Course) and scholarship cadets are paid a tax-free subsistence allow- 
ance of $150 per month and receive certain other benefits. 

Scholarships: Army ROTC offers four, three, and two year scholarships, awarded strictly 
on merit, to the most outstanding students who apply. The scholarship is valued at $16,000 
a year. In addition to paying all or part of your tuition, the scholarship offers a stipend of $ 1 50 
a month plus $450 a year for books and fees for up to ten months each year. All scholarship 
recipients remain eligible for financial aid. 

Corresponding Studies Program: Students participating in an off-campus study program 
in the United States or abroad may continue participation in either the Army ROTC Basic 
Course or Advanced Course and receive the same course credit and benefits as a student 
enrolled in the on-campus program. Scholarship students also are eligible to participate. 

Advanced Leadership Practicum: The practicum consists of a five-week summer training 
program at an Army installation that stresses the application of military skills to rapidly 
changing situations. Participants are evaluated on their ability to make sound decisions, to 
direct group efforts toward the accomplishment of common goals and to meet the mental and 
physical challenges presented to them. Completion of this practicum is required prior to 
commissioning and is normally attended between the junior and senior years. Participants 
receive room, board, travel expenses, medical care, and pay.

DEPARTMENT OF MUSIC 

Students in the Department of Music may major in one of three areas: music, music 
education, or music recording technology. Each student, regardless of major, is required to 
take a core of courses in music theory and music history. Each student also completes 
additional course work particular to his/her area of interest. 

Music Program 

Music majors will exhibit proficiency at the piano and in voice, each to be determined by 
jury. Precise requirements for these proficiencies and the recital attendance requirement are 
found in the Department of Music Student Handbook. To prepare for proficiency juries, 
students can take MSC 510 and/or 520. Music majors will be in at least one major performing 
ensemble (identified as either Marching Band, Symphonic Band, College Choir, Concert 
Choir, or Symphony Orchestra) each fall and spring semester. All students may earn up to 
12 credits for ensemble participation. They will enroll in private study on their principal 
instrument/voice during each fall and spring semester. 

Students registered for private instruction in the department are not permitted to study in 
that instructional area on a private basis with another instructor, on or off campus, at the same 
time. 

Degree Requirements: 

The Bachelor of Arts in music (B.A.) is designed for those students preparing for a career in 
music with a strong liberal arts background. All B.A. candidates will take an hour lesson per 
week in their principal performance medium. Students in the jazz studies concentration will 
take 530 private applied and 530 jazz studies each semester to fulfill this requirement. The 
theory/composition concentration students will take 530 private applied and 530 individual 
composition each semester to fulfill this requirement. B.A. in music students are encouraged 
to prepare a one-half junior recital, and a full senior recital. These are given in consultation 
with and at the recommendation of their private instructor and a pre-performance jury. 
Concentrations identified in the Department of Music Student Handbook include: piano, 
organ, voice, instrumental, sacred music, jazz studies, and theory /composition.

Economics Program 

Economics is the science of the choices forced on us by a world of resources that have 
competing uses. The traditional major in economics deals with decisions and choices made 
by individuals and firms and with the macroeconomic consequences of those choices. In 
addition to this traditional major, the department offers a major in public policy economics 
which emphasizes the application of economic methodology and analytical tools to the 
choices made by groups such as firms, families and political units. This major includes 
courses in political science and a government-service oriented internship. 

Degree Requirements: 

Degrees: Bachelor of Arts with a major in economics. 

Major: (Economics) ECN 101, 102, 201, 202, 312, and four additional elective courses in 
economics; ACT 161; MAS 150 or 161 or 1 1 1; MAS 170 or 270 or 372 (36 credits).

course (18 credits). 

Courses in Economics (ECN): 

100. Public Issue Economics. This course, for the non-major, covers public policy issues 
from the viewpoint of the economist. It looks at how individuals and also groups like 
corporations and governments make decisions about how resources are used. Issues covered 
remain current but may include welfare, poverty, crime, the environment, race and gender in 
microeconomics and unemployment, the debt and deficit, inflation and growth at the 
macroeconomic level. 3 credits. (Students having completed ECN 101 and/or 102 may not 
receive credit for ECN 100.) 

101. Principles of Microeconomics. The course examines how individuals and firms make 
choices within the institution of free-market capitalism. Individuals decide how much of their 
time to spend working and what to buy with the earnings of their labor. Firms decide how 
much to produce and in some cases what price to charge for their goods. Together these 
choices determine what is produced, how it is produced and for whom it is produced in our 
economic system. 3 credits. 

102. Principles of Macroeconomics. This course extends the study of consumer and 
producer choices to discover how they affect the nation's economy. Macroeconomics deals 
with the economy as a whole as measured by the key variables of inflation, unemployment, 
and economic growth. Emphasis is on both Keynesian and classical theories and how they 
predict what monetary and fiscal policies can be used to affect these variables and reach 
national economic goals. Prerequisite: ECN 101. 3 credits. 

201. Intermediate Microeconomic Analysis. This course covers the major theories of 
mainstream neoclassical economics. There is intensive study of the models of consumer and 
firm behavior that permit understanding of how the prices and quantities of goods and 
services are determined in a free market capitalistic system. The implications for social 
welfare, and equity and efficiency issues that are inherent in the free-market system are 
emphasized. Prerequisites: ECN 101 and 102. 3 credits. 

202. Intermediate Macroeconomic Analysis. In this course, students develop a model of the 
macroeconomy which permits them to analyze the nature of the business cycle. The 
assumptions built into the model can be altered, rendering it capable of examining the 
macroeconomy from various theoretical viewpoints. In addition to unemployment, inflation 
and economic growth, the course covers real business cycles, the macroeconomic implica- 
tions of free trade and emphasizes the microeconomic foundations of macroeconomics. 
Prerequisites: ECN 101 and 102. 3 credits.

quantity control, and the political nature of policy decisions are examined. Prerequisites: 
ECN 101 and 102. 3 credits. 

316. Ecological Economics. Ecological economics stresses the co-evolution of human 
preferences, understanding, technology and cultural organization. This approach differs

affecting the sustainability of our ecosystems is emphasized. Prerequisites: ECN 101 and 
102. 3 credits. 

321. Public Finance. This course extends the study of public economics to its application in 
the principles of taxation and public expenditures. Topics include the structure of the Federal

DEPARTMENT OF PSYCHOLOGY 

Psychology Program 

The goal of psychology is the scientific description and explanation of behavior. This goal 
is approached in diverse ways: from laboratory experiments on animal behavior at one 
extreme, to clinical interventions having therapeutic behavioral objectives at the other. This 
diversity makes psychology important to fields such as business, education, and medicine, 
and makes it an integral part of any liberal arts education. 

The undergraduate major in psychology incorporates many aspects of psychology. It 
includes elements of a general education as well as elements specially tailored to each 
student's career training. Some students completing the major have gone on to prestigious 
graduate schools while others have utilized their undergraduate training to take jobs 
immediately upon graduation. The departmental degree requirements are sensitive to this 
career diversity. 

Degree Requirements: 

The courses required of all psychology majors include: The Individual and Society (PSY 
100), General Psychology (PSY 110), Experimental Psychology (PSY 210), Psychological 
Statistics (PSY 216), Sophomore Seminar (PSY 299), and the History of Psychology (PSY 443). 
These courses provide a firm foundation for specialization in any of the content areas of 
psychology. 

The student majoring in psychology is also expected to focus in one of four content areas: 

(1) clinical and counseling psychology 

(2) experimental psychology 

(3) developmental and school psychology 

(4) industrial/organizational psychology 

The three required courses in an area of specialization are intended to link the liberal arts 
background to specific career goals. 

In addition to these general and specialized courses, all psychology majors are encouraged 
to participate in the educational process beyond the classroom through independent studies, 
laboratory research, and internships. The department is committed to providing opportuni- 
ties for work experiences as a component of the psychology major. 

Degree: Bachelor of Arts with a major in psychology. 

Major: PSY 100, 1 10, 210, 216, 299, 443; one course from: 335, 354, 355, 356, 358; one 
course from 321, 332, 343, 346; and three additional courses from a single specialty area (32

DEPARTMENT OF SOCIOLOGY AND SOCIAL WORK

the social and cultural forces that shape our lives, students gain a richer understanding of 
themselves and contemporary social issues. Sociology explores how and why people behave 
as they do as well as the effects of their behavior on others. In an economy that is moving from 
a manufacturing base to a service orientation, graduates in sociology are prepared to work in 
fields where an understanding of the dynamics of human relationships is important.

GRADUATE ACADEMIC PROGRAMS 

Lebanon Valley College offers two graduate programs. These programs are the Master of 
Business Administration (MBA) and the Master of Science Education (MSE). 

The Master of Business Administration program is a multi-disciplinary program designed 
to prepare graduates for managerial responsibilities at various levels of business organiza- 
tions. This program provides a strong theoretical foundation as well as operational expertise 
in the areas of finance, management, marketing, human resource management and operations 
management. 

The Master of Science Education degree program is designed for elementary and middle 
school teachers, teaching in kindergarten through eighth grades, who want to enhance their 
understanding of science principles as well as their ability to teach these concepts to their 
students. This program focuses on the "hands-on" or experiential learning of science. 
Teachers with minimal experience in science and the methodology necessary to teach science 
to their students, as well as those with a strong background in one area of science and desire 
to complement it with comparable understanding of the other sciences, will benefit from this 
program. 



Graduate Program Policies and Procedures 

Academic Advising and Registration 

Graduate students should meet with their academic adviser prior to class registration. The 
adviser will develop a graduation plan with the student. All course registrations require the 
adviser's signature. 

Veteran Registration 

The college meets all of the criteria of Veterans Education under the provisions of Title 
38, United States Code, Section 1775. The graduate programs have been approved for 
payment assistance. Veterans pay the cost of tuition, fees, books and supplies directly to the 
college. They are reimbursed by the Veterans Administration on a monthly basis. Applicants 
having any questions concerning their veteran's benefits should contact the college's 
veterans representative in the Registrar's Office. 

Transfer Credit 

A maximum of nine credits (a maximum of six core credits) may be transferred from 
another graduate program with the approval of the program director and the registrar. No 
transfer credit shall be accepted if the grade earned at another institution was less than B. 
Students wishing to transfer credits may be asked to submit course outline, textbook used, 
and any reading materials so proper credit may be given. 

Concurrent Courses 

A student enrolled for a graduate degree may not take courses concurrently at another 
educational institution without prior consent of the academic adviser and the registrar. 



132 Graduate Academic Programs 1999-2000 Catalog 



Grading 

Student work is graded A, A-, B+, B, B-, C+, C, and F. Candidates must maintain a grade 
point average of 3.00 with a maximum of two C grades in the program. 

In addition, the symbols I and W are used. I indicates work that is incomplete but 
otherwise satisfactory. It is awarded only for substantial reason and work must be completed 
in the first eight weeks of the following semester, including summer session, or I will be 
changed to F. 

W indicates withdrawal from a course through the first 10 weeks. Thereafter, the 
appropriate letter grade will be assigned for the course. 

No graduate course may be taken pass/fail, except MSE 830, Research. 

Review Procedure 

Every student' s academic progress shall be reviewed at the end of each academic period 
by the academic adviser. Any student whose average falls below 3.00 or who earns a C or 
F in three or more credit hours may be placed on academic probation. A student on academic 
probation may be required to retake courses or correct other academic deficiencies and must 
achieve a 3.00 cumulative average within two semesters of being placed on probation. A 
student may repeat a maximum of two graduate courses with any given course being repeated 
only once. Students who fail to correct deficiencies may be dropped from the program. A 
student may appeal any decision of the program director to the senior vice-president and dean 
of the faculty. 

Course Withdrawal and Tuition Refund 

Any student who withdraws from courses for which he or she is registered must notify 
the adviser in writing. The effective date of withdrawal is the date on which the student 
notifies the office. Failure to give notice of withdrawal will result in a grade of F. Notifying 
the instructor does not constitute official withdrawal. A refund schedule based on official 
withdrawal date is published in the semester brochure 

Time Restriction 

The maximum time for completion of a graduate program is seven years from the date of 
the admission letter. Students who have not earned the graduate degree during this period 
shall have their academic standing reviewed and may be asked to meet additional require- 
ments in order to graduate.
