Overview 



SixtV VCarS Of College Misericordia, a Catholic institution of higher learning for 

rnmmifmpnf men an< ^ women ' > s located on a beautiful 100-acre campus in the 

suburban community of Dallas, Pennsylvania. It was the first 

college to be established in Luzerne County. 

Since its establishment in 1924 by the Wilkes-Barre foundation of 
the Religious Sisters of Mercy of the Union, College Misericordia 
has pursued a policy of growth, both in terms of physical 
expansion and in academic programs. The result is a modern 
college with a distinguished liberal arts base for all of its 
undergraduate degree programs. The College also offers high 
quality graduate programs in Nursing and Human Services 
Administration. 

The tradition of the College has grown from the history and value 
system of its sponsoring group, the Sisters of Mercy. At the core of 
the institution is the ideal which inspired Catherine McAuley's 
founding of the Institute of Mercy, that is, compassionate service 
through the ministries of teaching and healing. Committed to the 
promotion of these ideals, the Sisters of Mercy seek to share that 
commitment with lay colleagues and with students. It is that same 
commitment which gives direction and purpose to the academic 
curriculum, and to cocurricular and extracurricular activity, 

College Misericordia supports the belief that all professional and 
pre-professional education emanates from and is influenced by a 
liberal arts tradition. Such a position is based upon several beliefs: 
that liberation from ignorance and prejudice is fundamental to 
personal and professional development; that a common knowledge 
base fosters human understanding; that the formation of critical, 
creative and aesthetic qualities is important to human growth; and 
that a broadbased education is vital to the development of skills 
which allow for a flexible approach to living.

Elective Areas 
of Study 



All College Misericordia students are required to fulfill a 51-credit 
liberal arts core curriculum in addition to the requirements of their 
chosen major. The core courses provide both a sound educational 
foundation and a perspective from which to choose a major field or 
specialized area of study. 

College Misericordia's academic programs fall into five 
inter-related groups: majors, specializations, certifications, minors 
and elective areas of study. These program areas are defined below: 

Areas of study in a formal discipline for which a degree is awarded, 
for example, a Bachelor of Arts degree in History, a Bachelor of 
Social Work degree in Social Work, or a Bachelor of Science degree 
in Mathematics. 

Focused programs of extended study closely associated with a 
specific degree program. Specializations are generally available 
only to students who have been accepted to the major for that 
specific degree. Examples are B. A. /History (Pre-Law) or 
B.S. /Biology (Pre-Medicine). 

Prescribed programs of study designed to meet requirements of 
official agencies which recognize the certification as a valid 
credential. One example is the Early Childhood Education 
certification recognized by the Pennsylvania Department of 
Education. 

Focused programs of study which involve specific clusters of 
courses around a general area of study. Minors are not associated 
with particular degree programs and are therefore open to all 
students. Examples are writing, legal assistant, philosophy and 
religious studies. 

Clusters of courses which are not as a group directly associated 
with a specific degree program. These elective courses are intended 
to augment the liberal arts background of any interested student. 
Examples are philosophy, art, sociology and geography. 

In the academic program listings which follow, majors, 
specializations and certifications are combined into one section and 
are listed alphabetically by program name. They have been 
grouped together by virtue of their one common feature— majors, 
specializations and certifications are associated with specific degree 
programs and therefore require defined course sequences. 

Minors, which are open to all students, may be taken in association 
with any degree program. Minors involve 15 to 21 credits in 
specific areas. The minors offered by the College and their course 
requirements are grouped together under the heading Minor 
Programs. 

Elective areas of study are briefly described in the section headed 
Elective Areas of Study. 

Specific information regarding every course offered by the College 
may be found in the Course Descriptions section of this catalog. 



The Curricula

administration program provides the proper 
balance of both theory and practice. The 
program prepares students for entry level 
positions in business, industry or the non- 
profit sector. Some business administration 
majors continue their studies at the graduate 
level. 

Many business administration majors 
choose to specialize in a particular business- 
related field. To meet these individual needs, 
the Division of Business Administration of- 
fers specializations in accounting, computer 
science, management, marketing and mer- 
chandising. More detailed descriptions of 
these programs may be found elsewhere in 
this catalog. 

Students who do not want to specialize in 
any area but prefer the more traditional ap- 
proach to business education receive a 
broad background in all areas of the busi- 
ness environment. Some students choose 
this broad approach in recognition of the 
fact that some employers prefer to provide 
employees with training specific to the com- 
pany, building upon the student's broad- 
based business education. 

Business administration majors must fulfill 
the core curriculum requirements of the Col- 
lege, and the specific requirements of the 
major. Nine credit hours are to be completed 
in free electives. These electives may be 
courses from any academic area, or may 
take the form of independent study or work 
experience. 

Business administration majors are expected 
to achieve grades of "C" or better in required 
major courses. A student may repeat a 
course once. If a grade of "C" or better is not 
achieved, the student will be dismissed from 
the business administration program.

Division of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work 
Degree: May be taken in support of several degrees 
Program Director: James Calderone 

The child welfare services certificate 
program is most directly associated 
with a major in one of the helping pro- 
fessions. Child welfare specialists han- 
dle the problems of abused, neglected 
and abandoned children or those whose 
behavior has brought them to the atten- 
tion of the courts. This type of work is 
demanding and requires highly trained 
and dedicated professionals for whom 
children and their families are of para- 
mount importance. 

A certificate in child welfare services in- 
volves a total of 15 credits. Three of 
these credits are earned through the suc- 
cessful completion of a clinic, field prac- 
ticum or other appropriate placement in 
a child serving setting related to the stu- 
dent's major field of study.

Program Director: John Mullany 

College Misericordia's major program 
in elementary education is respected 
throughout Northeastern Pennsyl- 
vania. The College has graduated 
teachers since its founding in 1924, and 
since that time the elementary educa- 
tion program has been continuously re- 
fined to keep pace with modern teach- 
ing methods and theory. The elemen- 
tary education program is fully ap- 
proved by the Pennsylvania Depart- 
ment of Education and leads to a valid 
teaching certificate honored in Pennsyl- 
vania and most other states. 

All students who wish to pursue careers 
in teaching must follow the core curric- 
ulum prescribed by College Misericor- 
dia. No later than the first semester of 
the sophomore year, students must ap- 
ply to the elementary education pro- 
gram and be formally interviewed by 
the program director. 

To remain in the program and be recom- 
mended for student teaching, students 
must maintain a GPA of 2.2 or better 
overall, and a 2.5 or better in major 
courses, in addition to successfully 
completing one or more field experi- 
ences. 

The field experiences required by the 
program begin during the freshman 
year, and involve observation or practi- 
cum assignments in community 
schools. Field experiences are arranged 
by the director of student teaching. 

Students who successfully complete the 
elementary education program are eli- 
gible for recommendation by the Col- 
lege to the Pennsylvania Department of 
Education for teacher certification. The 
certificates, entitled "Pennsylvania In- 
structional I," allow graduates to teach 
legally in the public schools of Pennsyl- 
vania and most other states.

The major in English assists students in 
acquiring a comprehensive knowledge 
of the English language and the litera- 
ture produced in that language from the 
Anglo-Saxon times to the present. 

The English curriculum emphasizes stu- 
dent progress from practice in writing 
to mastery of the technique of rhetoric. 
The program's goal is two-fold: the ar- 
ticulation of ideas, based on trained 
critical judgment and expressed in clear 
prose; and the understanding of literary 
forms, centered particularly in the liter- 
ature of Great Britain and America.

Program Director: Sr. Joanne Cepelak 



The general studies program at College Misericordia was created to 
provide the opportunity tor students who have previous college credits 
in career oriented programs to earn a Bachelor's Degree through 
additional study at College Misericordia. 

Professional course credits completed in prior study can be combined 
with additional liberal arts credits and will qualify the candidate for the 
Bachelor's Degree. The degree obtained may be a Bachelor of Science or 
a Bachelor of Arts, each with a major in general studies, depending on 
the courses completed at College Misericordia. Usually, the degree credits 
can be earned in two years of study at Misericordia. The degree may be 
earned by attending day and evening classes through the McAuley 
Weekend College for adults. 

Individual programs of study are designed by the student with the 
assistance of an advisement committee consisting of the program 
director, the Dean of Admissions and a faculty member from a discipline 
related to the course of study..

Gerontology 

Certification 

Division of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work 
Program Director: Thomas O'Neill 

Gerontology is the study of aging, a 
normal process in the human lifespan. 
The rapid development and expansion 
of programs and services for elderly 
persons in America, and the anticipated 
increase in the number of persons living 
to old age, have escalated the demand 
for professionals trained to work in the 
field of aging. 

The Gerontology program prepares 
graduates for positions in agencies and 
institutions which administer health 
and community-based services for the 
aged. Career opportunities exist in 
nursing homes, hospitals, senior citizen 
centers, area agencies on aging, nutri- 
tion programs, rehabilitation centers, 
social welfare agencies and other orga- 
nizations. The program also enhances 
the knowledge and skills of individuals 
currently involved in the provision of 
such services. 

The Gerontology certificate program is 
offered to students who are not pursu- 
ing a degree at College Misericordia. 
These individuals may take the Geron- 
tology course of study by itself, or in 
conjunction with other continuing edu- 
cation courses. 

College Misericordia also offers a minor 
in Gerontology for students pursuing 
related courses of study at the College.

Division of Humanities 

Degree: B.A. History 

Program Director: Louis Maganzin 

Following a major course of study in 
history provides a student with a strong 
liberal arts background. The study of 
history can broaden a student's perspec- 
tive of local, national and international 
issues. It fosters an understanding of the 
complexity of human motivation and 
action and provides a critical approach 
to looking at the past. College Miseri- 
cordia's history program cultivates the 
ability to think, write and speak clearly 
and precisely with thoroughness and in- 
dependence. The program is designed 
to develop a student's personal capabil- 
ity and desire for intellectual growth. 

History majors must fulfill the College's 
core curriculum requirements in addi- 
tion to completing 36 credits in history. 
Advanced history courses require six 
credits of core courses as prerequisite. 

Internships for history majors are as- 
signed on the basis of availability. Stu- 
dents must achieve a grade of "C" or 
better in all major courses.

Degree: B.S. /Information Systems 
Program Director: Joseph Tomasovic 



The information systems major is an in- 
terdisciplinary program designed for 
students who wish to combine business 
courses with a core set of computer sci- 
ence courses. The program prepares 
students for careers in data processing, 
applications programming, manage- 
ment information/decision systems, or 
for graduate study in a Master of Busi- 
ness Administration program. 



College Misericordia's computer facili- 
ties were designed to meet students' aca- 
demic needs. The principal academic 
computer at the College is a Digital 
Equipment Corporation VAX 11/730 
with a VMS operating system. The 
computer is one of the latest in the DEC 
line; it is a 32-bit word, virtual memory, 
super-minicomputer. The College's 
computer facilities also include labs 
stocked with IBM Personal Computers, 
a TRS 80 Model II personal computer 
and Apple II computers. The academic 
computer facilities are independent of 
the College's Management Information 
System. 

Information systems majors must meet 
the core curriculum requirements set by 
the College, as well as the requirements 
specific to the major. Students must 
complete a senior independent project 
in consultation with their advisors.

Liberal Studies 

Major 

Degree: B.A. or B.S. /Liberal Studies 
Program Director: Lee Williames 

Students who pursue a major in liberal 
studies may receive either a Bachelor of 
Arts degree or a Bachelor of Science de- 
gree, depending on the selected area or 
theme of study. In either case, students 
must complete 128 credits. 

The liberal studies major permits stu- 
dents to plan their studies around per- 
sonal and professional goals. The pro- 
gram is geared to highly motivated and 
independent students who are capable 
of individual scholarship. The program 
enables students to create their own 
"major" by selecting courses in general 
areas of interest: fine arts, social sci- 
ence, natural science or humanities, or 
by pursuing a specific theme of study 
that would include courses in all these 
areas. The modes of study in the liberal 
studies program may be non-traditional 
and may include independent study, re- 
search and seminars, particularly in the 
junior and senior years. 

Liberal studies majors work closely 
with an advisor throughout the design 
and implementation of their programs.

Division of Natural Sciences and Mathematics 
Degree: B.S. or B. A. /Mathematics 
Program Director: Joseph Tomasovic 



Mathematics has been called the "queen 
of the sciences." In recent years, the in- 
creased use of statistics and quantitative 
methods, and the computer revolution, 
have caused mathematics to pervade 
not only the physical sciences, but the 
life and social sciences as well. Mathe- 
matical techniques are widely used in 
research, in industry, manufacturing, 
commerce and government. Recogniz- 
ing these broad applications, College 
Misericordia designed its major pro- 
gram in math to expose students to both 
classical and contemporary mathemat- 
ics. 

The mathematics major prepares stu- 
dents for careers in business, industry 
or government, or for future study in 
graduate or professional school. 

Students may choose to pursue either a 
B.S. or a B.A. degree in mathematics. 
The required math courses for either de- 
gree are the same. Students who choose 
a B.A. must complete PHY 221-222; 
those choosing a B.S. must complete 
PHY 221-222 and either CHM 133-134 
or BIO 101-102. 

Students who major in mathematics 
must achieve a grade of "C" or better in 
all major courses. Students must fulfill 
the core curriculum requirements of the 
College in addition to the minimum of 
33 credits in math.

College Misericordia's program in mu- 
sic education prepares graduates to 
teach in today's public schools in ac- 
cordance with artistic standards and 
current, creative teaching methods. The 
curriculum is designed primarily for 
those who wish to qualify for teaching, 
and leads to a Bachelor of Music degree 
as well as a Pennsylvania certificate in 
music education. Some students elect to 
pursue a double major in music educa- 
tion and music therapy. 



In addition to meeting the College's gen- 
eral admission requirements, music ed- 
ucation majors must successfully audi- 
tion in their major performance area. A 
theory test is given at the time of audi- 
tion. A senior recital is a requirement of 
the music education program. 

All music students participate in Col- 
lege Chorus for eight semesters. Other 
ensemble activity depends upon the stu- 
dent's area of interest.

Nursing 

Major 

Division of Nursing 

Degree: B.S. /Nursing 

Program Director: Sheila Pringle 



PHILOSOPHY 

College Misericordia's nursing faculty is concerned with the worth and 
dignity of the total person. The Division of Nursing strives for a holistic 
view of man, taking into account physical structure, mind, spirit, and 
both the physical and social environment in which one lives. Man is 
perceived within the context of a family unit, a unit which maintains the 
stability of society while it provides the flexibility necessary for the 
individual growth of all its members. 

It is the Nursing Division's philosophy that health and illness are 
intricately related in the dynamics of wellness. It is believed that the level 
of wellness attained by an individual is directly related to and influenced 
by the family's and the community's level of wellness. The nursing 
faculty believes that a person has a right to that level of wellness which 
enables the maximization of potential as an individual, as a family 
member and as a community leader. 

The practice of professional nursing is an essential service which assists 
in the prevention of illness and the promotion, maintenance and 
restoration of wellness. The professional nurse accepts the responsibility 
for obtaining the knowledge and skills necessary to reach that goal. 

The nursing student at College Misericordia is prepared to be a generalist 
who with other professional and allied health personnel can provide 
health care services to persons, families and community groups in a 
variety of settings. The nursing program at Misericordia educates the 
beginning professional nurse to provide vital, effective nursing services 
in a total health care system. 

The nursing process draws upon intellectual, interpersonal and technical 
skills. The nursing program provides for the development of these skills 
through a curriculum which includes both a strong liberal arts 
background as well as theoretical and practical nursing training. 
Students learn to assess, plan, implement and evaluate health and 
nursing care services. 

The nursing program provides a sound educational base for graduate 
study. The College also offers a Master of Science in Nursing degree 
program. 

POLICIES 

In addition to the general policies of College Misericordia, the following 
regulations apply to students in the Division of Nursing: 

Off-Campus Student Employment 

It is the policy of the Division of Nursing that students carrying 12 
credit hours cannot commit themselves to more than 24 hours a 
week in off-campus positions. Full time nursing students who wish 
to work part time should discuss their plans with their faculty 
nursing advisor. 

When students are employed in a health agency, they may not 
perform the functions of a professional or practical nurse.

Nursint? Academic Advisement 

Faculty members assist students in planning their academic 



schedules each semester. Faculty advisors are available to provide 
individual counseling and advisement as needs arise. 

Absences 

Students are expected to attend classes and clinical practica. 
Absences are permitted only in unusual circumstances. Making up 
time lost will be left to the discretion of the faculty. 

Transportation to Cooperating Agencies 

Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from 
hospitals and other clinical agencies. Each student is required to 
have an automobile for Community Health Nursing. Area health 
agencies cooperating with the nursing program include: 
Community Medical Center, Scranton; Friendship House, 
Scranton; Leader East Rehabilitation Center, Kingston; Mercy 
Hospital, Scranton; Mercy Hospital, Wilkes-Barre; Nesbitt 
Memorial Hospital, Kingston; Pennsylvania Department of 
Health, Luzerne and Lackawanna Counties; Tyler Memorial 
Hospital, Tunkhannock; Veteran's Administration Medical Center, 
Wilkes-Barre; Wilkes-Barre General Hospital, Wilkes-Barre, and 
others. 

Special Expenses 

In addition to the College tuition and fees, expenses for the nursing 
program include: nursing uniforms, laboratory and nursing fees, 
malpractice insurance, National League for Nursing Achievement 
and /or other assessment tests, State Board of Nursing 
Examination, and the nursing pin. 

Insurance 

Malpractice insurance coverage is required prior to enrolling in any 
course with a Nursing number. 

Physical Examinations 

Annual physical exams are required for admission to nursing 
courses and records of the exams must be on file in the Student 
Health Services office by July 1 of each school year. Health 
requirements specified by the Division of Nursing must be fulfilled. 

GRADE REQUIREMENTS 

All nursing majors must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 
2.0. If a student receives a grade lower than "C "in a required course, the 
student may repeat the course once, and must achieve a grade of "C + " 
or better. In such cases, the required sequence of study is disrupted and 
additional time will be required to complete the program. 

Students who successfully repeat the required course and thereafter 
receive a grade lower than "C" in another required course will 
automatically be dismissed from the Division of Nursing. 

If a student receives a grade lower than "C" in more than one required 
course in a single semester, the student will automatically be dismissed 
from the Division of Nursing.

Occupational Therapy 

Major 

Division of Allied Health Professions 
Degree: B.S. /Occupational Therapy 
Program Director: Stephen Heater 



Majors, Specializations ami 
Certifications 

College Misericordia's program in occupational therapy provides 
students with the knowledge, skills and techniques necessary to assume 
entry level positions as registered occupational therapists. The 
program's academic and clinical course of study meets the requirements 
of the American Occupational Therapy Association. 

The primary responsibility of the occupational therapist is to help the 
disabled and disadvantaged achieve a maximum level of independent 
functioning in self-care, work and leisure activities. Occupational 
therapy graduates are readily employed in clinics, hospitals, 
rehabilitation centers, mental retardation centers, schools, nursing 
homes, well baby clinics, psychiatric centers, and other related human 
service agencies. The College's program is associated with more than 60 
hospitals nationwide which provide comprehensive clinical options for 
OT students. 



College Misericordia expects that by June of 1985, the occupational 
therapy program will be accredited by the American Occupational 
Therapy Association. Graduates of a duly accredited program are 
eligible to sit for the national certification examination to become 
registered occupational therapists. 

POLICIES 

In addition to the general policies of College Misericordia, the following 
regulations apply to occupational therapy majors: 

Fieldwork 

Students are responsible for their transportation and travel costs to 
and from assigned practicum and fieldwork centers. Such 
assignments begin in the sophomore year and continue throughout 
the program. Students should expect to pay room and board 
expenses during the senior year fieldwork assignments in the event 
that the affiliated hospital or clinic does not cover them. 

Related Expenses 

Additional expenses for OT students normally include laboratory 
fees, uniforms, name pins, school patches, malpractice liability 
insurance and registration examination fee. Although not required, 
students are urged to join the American Occupational Therapy 
Association and the Pennsylvania Occupational Therapy 
Association at the reduced student rates.

GRADE REQUIREMENTS 

All OT majors must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 2.0. 
If a student receives a grade lower than "C" in a natural or behavioral 
science course, the student may repeat the course once, realizing that the 
required sequence of study has been disrupted and additional time will 
be required to complete the program. Students who successfully repeat 
such a course and thereafter receive a grade lower than "C" in a natural 
or behavioral science course, will automatically be dismissed from the 
occupational therapy program. 

If a student receives a grade lower than "C" in an occupational therapy 
course, the student may repeat the course once. Students who 
successfully repeat an OT course and thereafter receive a grade lower 
than "C" in such a course will be automatically dismissed from the 
occupational therapy program.

Pre-Law 

Specialization 

Division of Humanities 

Degree: B. A. /History 

Program Director: Rosemarie Savelli 

The pre-law specialization at College 
Misericordia was developed in accord- 
ance with the Association of American 
Law Schools which recommends that 
prospective law students have a broad 
liberal arts background. The program 
represents sound preparation for the 
Law School Admission Test and the 
study of law. 

The program has been carefully de- 
signed to develop ability in expression 
and comprehension of English, to af- 
ford basic information about human in- 
stitutions and values, and to cultivate 
the ability to think creatively and criti- 
cally with thoroughness and indepen- 
dence. 

Satisfactory completion of the pre-law 
specialization provides students with a 
Bachelor of Arts degree in History.

Degree: A.A.S. Radiologic Technology 
Program Director: Gerard Staats 

College Misericordia's Associate in Ap- 
plied Sciences degree program in radio- 
logic technology is approved by the 
American Medical Association and its 
accrediting agencies. The program pro- 
vides training in the application of io- 
nizing radiation to human subjects, and 
prepares students to take the American 
Registry of Radiologic Technologists ex- 
amination in Radiology. 

The Associate degree program is a two- 
year curriculum which eliminates much 
of the College's liberal arts core. Many 
graduates of hospital-based radiologic 
technology programs find the associate 
degree program useful as post-profes- 
sional training. 

Students are required to provide their 
own transportation to and from the 
clinical education centers. Students 
must demonstrate proficiency in mathe- 
matics or successfully complete the Col- 
lege's developmental mathematics pro- 
gram. 

A 2.0 cumulative grade point average is 
required of all radiologic technology 
students. Those who fall below a 2.0 
must raise their average during the next 
semester or be dismissed from the pro- 
gram. A student who receives a grade 
below "C" in any science course must 
repeat the course prior to graduation. 
Those who receive a grade below "C" in 
any radiologic technology course shall 
be dismissed from the program. Stu- 
dents dismissed for this reason may re- 
apply for admission to the program as 
space in the clinical setting allows.

Major 

Division of Behavioral Sciences and Social Work 
Degree: Bachelor of Social Work 
Program Director: Dennis Fisher 



The objective of College Misericordia's 
social work program is to provide stu- 
dents with the knowledge, skills and 
value orientation needed to practice so- 
cial work at the baccalaureate level. To 
this end, the program offers an inte- 
grated body of knowledge, both theo- 
retical and practical. Field instruction 
experience provides a means of utilizing 
that knowledge. 

Field instruction is offered in a variety 
of settings, including both public and 
voluntary agencies. It is a structured ed- 
ucational experience in social work 
practice which enables students to inte- 
grate the information learned in the 
classroom. Students learn about the 
structure and operation of social work 
agencies and become oriented to actual 
practice situations. 

Before students may enroll in field in- 
struction they must have successfully 
completed a sequence of social work 
courses; have a grade point average of 
2.5 in the major; and have a cumulative 
average of 2.0. 

Students must repeat a major course in 
which a grade below "C" is received. 
Transportation to and from field place- 
ments is the student's responsibility. 

College Misericordia's social work pro- 
gram is accredited by the Council on 
Social Work Education. Graduates may 
be eligible for advanced standing in 
nearly thirty graduate schools of social 
work throughout the country.

The Curricula 

Elective Areas of Study 



Elective courses provide a variety of experiences in the liberal arts and 
may be taken by any interested student whose curriculum allows for 
such electives. 

The elective areas of study are not related to any specific degree 
program, that is, one cannot pursue a major, minor, specialization or 
certification in any of the programs described in this section. However, 
coursework in these areas can contribute significantly to a student's 
education. Some of the courses in each of the following programs are 
called for in the course sequences of various majors. Others are part of 
the College's core curriculum. 

Descriptions of the courses offered in the elective areas of study may be 
found under the section headed Course Descriptions. 

/^Yt ^he philosophy of the art department is based on the belief that all 

individuals are innately creative, and that they have a need to express 
that creativity. Creative outlets take many forms, one of which is artistic 
endeavor. 

Both beginning and advanced artists can choose from many different 
programs, some theoretical and others practical. Courses address such 
areas as drawing, painting, graphics, sculpture, illustration, ceramics, 
weaving, metalsmithing, enameling, printmaking, photography, art 
history, art appreciation, and contemporary art. 

ART 161, Art Appreciation, is part of the core curriculum. 

GeOSraohv Geography examines the inter-relationships of people and their 

environment. We are directly and indirectly affected by our environment 
at any given moment, by weather, solar radiation, earthquakes, floods, 
or a walk through a rain forest or desert. 

Human beings play a large part in this relationship through such actions 
as leveling or planting forests, building cities, draining swamps, 
establishing national boundaries, and polluting the air, water and land. 

The study of the fit between man and his ecosphere can provide a greater 
understanding of ourselves, our fellow man, and the earth on which we 
live. 

Physical Education Since classical times, physical fitness has been known to play a part in 

the development of whole, healthy individuals. 

The physical education department offers a wide range of physical 
activities, from archery and badminton to skiing and volleyball. The 
courses are intended to develop and maintain students' lifetime sports 
skills, and impress students with the importance of sport and exercise in 
daily life. 

Four credit hours of elective physical education courses may be applied 
toward graduation. 



57 



The Curricula 

Elective Areas of Study 



PhvsicS Physics is perhaps the most basic of the sciences. It impacts directly on 

the study of biology or chemistry and can be a useful adjunct to the 
study of mathematics. 

The physics department offers courses for science majors and for 
students in some of the preprofessional programs, such as medical 
technology and radiologic technology. Physics courses may also enrich 
the education of humanities majors. 

The core curriculum science requirement may be filled by any physics 
course (with the exception of PHY 101/102) for which the prerequisites 
have been met. 

Sociolo£V Sociology is the study of the origin, development, organization and 

functioning of human society. No one exists outside of a social system, so 
it is easy to understand how sociology can relate to any academic 
program. 

The courses offered by the sociology department explore such subjects as 
anthropology, social problems, cultural minorities, the family and 
research methods. A background in sociology can broaden one's 
perspective of the world, can promote objectivity, and develop an 
accepting attitude with regard to different peoples and their ways of life.

may however, apply for Pre-Occupational Therapy status with the 
understanding that a four-year sequence is required to complete the program. 

Transfers must demonstrate a minimum 2.5 GRA in all college work

5. Copy of a current catalog, indicating courses taken, from the institution 
previously attended. 

Admission of transfer students is based primarily on the applicant's academic 
performance at the institution attended previously. Transfer credit will be 
awarded for those courses that are equivalent to courses offered at College 
Misericordia. Normally, only grades of "C" or better will be accepted for 
transfer credit. The registrar, however, reserves the right to award or withhold 
credit. 

Grades earned at other institutions are not included in the student's GPA at 
College Misericordia. 

Transfer students are encouraged to arrange an interview with an admissions 
counselor to review academic status and proposed curriculum. 

Students who hold associate degrees in either arts or sciences may be admitted 
to a special program leading to a baccalaureate degree at College Misericordia 
(associate degrees in applied arts or sciences are evaluated on a course by 
course basis). Under the special program, transfer students take a minimum of 
56 credit hours at College Misericordia. These credits are to include six credits 
in religious studies and six in philosophy if students have not already earned 
these credits as part of their associate degree program (see General Studies). 

Students must also complete the requirements for an academic major and earn 
a total of 128 credit hours, including the credits earned for the associate 
degree. Please note that some majors involve extensive coursework and 
require more than the minimum of 56 credits. 

Students transferring from two-year institutions who do not hold associate 
degrees may transfer up to 70 credits. These students must earn the credits 
required for the core curriculum and the academic major, to complete the 
degree requirement of 128 hours. 

Students who transfer from four-year colleges must complete a minimum of 32 
credits at College Misericordia to be eligible to receive a degree. 



Upon receipt of the Application for Admission, the secondary school 
record/transcript, post-secondary transcripts (if applicable), and the guidance 
or transfer counselor recommendation, the Committee on Admissions reviews 
the applicant's portfolio and notifies a candidate by mail of the admission 
decision usually within three or four weeks. 

Because of the limited number of students admitted each year to most 
programs of study, reservation deposits will be accepted only while space is 
available. Normally, reservation deposits should be made within six weeks of 
notification of acceptance. Deadline extensions may be granted only with the 
written consent of the Dean of Admissions. 



Incoming students who wish to enroll at College Misericordia for either the fall 
or spring term must submit a reservation deposit of SlOO if they want to reside 
on campus. A $50 reservation deposit is required for incoming students who 
plan to commute. This deposit will not be refunded if the student withdraws. 

Personal interviews are not required. However, applicants are strongly 
encouraged to arrange for a personal interview and a tour of the campus.

but affords the early decision applicant the opportunity to know his or her 
admission status early in the fall of senior year. Early decision candidates must 
also adhere to the reservation deposit deadline. 

Students who have completed their junior year in high school with an 
outstanding record of achievement may apply for early admission to College

program through CLEP. All thirty credits may be earned through CLEP subject 
examinations, or fifteen (15) of the thirty may be earned by taking CLEP 
general examinations. A minimum score of 50 is required in any of the subject 
examinations, and a minimum score of 500 in the general examinations is 
required to obtain credit.

courses described in the catalog or which are part of the cooperative program 
with King's College, Wilkes-Barre. 

All freshman students admitted to the College are required to take a series of 
tests in basic skills areas before they may register for classes. These tests are 
administered on selected Saturdays through the spring and summer. 

Students who demonstrate a deficiency in one or more area are required to 
take a developmental education course in the area corresponding to the 
deficiency. Students who achieve superior scores are candidates for admission 
to the College Honors Program, advanced placement, or both. 

Students who have previously attended College Misericordia and have 
withdrawn for personal reasons may be considered candidates for 
readmission. It is not necessary for the student to reapply, but a letter should 
be sent to the Dean of Admissions indicating the reason(s) why the student 
withdrew and wishes to return to the College. If the student was dismissed for 
academic reasons the matter will be referred to the Academic Dean for final 
decision. In the case of disciplinary dismissal, the matter will be referred to the 
Dean of Students. 

A student dismissed for academic reasons may reapply after one year. The 
student will be admitted for one semester, pending an evaluation of the 
semester's work by the Academic Status Committee. If at the end of the 
semester the student fails to attain a 2.0 cumulative grade point average, he or 
she will be asked to withdraw permanently.

In general, students should know that not all their ideas, data, or words are 
expected to be entirely original; however, when borrowing from others, the 
appropriate forms of attribution must be used. Scholarly "borrowing" is 
encouraged, not censored; to ignore totally the accumulated knowledge of 
those committed to understanding the world would itself be a violation of the 
precepts of the college and of higher education. Unacknowledged borrowing, 
however, cannot be tolerated.

Academic 
Standing 



The following are among the forms of dishonesty for which sanctions may be 
given: 

1 . Use of books, notes, or other materials during an examination, unless 
expressly permitted. 

2. Copying others' work or unauthorized cooperation in doing assignments or 
during an examination. 

3. Use of purchased essays, term papers, or preparatory research for such 
papers. 

4. Submission of work originally done by someone else. 

5. Submission of the same written work in more than one course without the 
prior written approval from the instructor(s) involved. 

6. Borrowing from published works, whether material is taken verbatim or 
with minor alterations, without proper and/or sufficient 
acknowledgement . 

7. Dishonesty in requests for either extensions on papers or makeup 
examinations. 

8. Misrepresentation in statements concerning work submitted. 

9. Falsification or fabrication of experimental data or results. 

The primary responsibility for maintaining standards of personal integrity and 
honor in academic activities rests with the individual student. Any student 
who violates these standards is subject to disciplinary action which may 
include dismissal. 

Students who have attempted between 12 and 23 credits will be placed on 
probation if their cumulative grade point average is below 1.50. Those who 
have attempted between 24 and 37 credits will be placed on probation if their 
cumulative grade point average is below 1.75; and students who have 
attempted 38 or more credits will be placed on probation if their cumulative 
grade point average is below 2.0. 

Students are advised to confer with their division, for some divisions require 
specific averages in some majors. 

All transfer students are expected to have a 2.0 grade point average to be 
admitted to the College. Transfer applicants with lower than a 2.0 will be 
admitted only with the approval of the Academic Dean. 

A student on academic probation for two consecutive semesters is subject to 
suspension or dismissal from the College. 

A cumulative index of lower than 1.0 at the end of the freshman year will bring 
automatic dismissal.

by attending classes on a non-matriculating/part time basis. 

Readmittance to the College does not necessarily imply readmittance to a 
major program. After being readmitted, the student must maintain a 
cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or will be permanently dismissed. 

Individual class cancellations are posted by the Academic Dean as they are 
reported. 

If classes are to be cancelled, or the College is to be closed because of weather 
conditions, the decision will be made by 6:00 a.m. and relayed promptly to 
local radio stations.

In order to be classified as a sophomore, a student must have successfully 
completed 30 semester hours of work. To be considered a junior, 60 semester 
hours must have successfully been completed; senior, 90 semester hours. 

College Misericordia offers a variety of educational options for part time 
students and for those who do not go to college right after high school. 

The continuing education department is sensitive to the special needs of 
students with families, full time jobs, or both. Evening classes are held every 
semester and during the summer. Many students find weekend classes 
convenient (see Weekend College). Child care services are available Kir 
students with young children. 

All of the College's academic and student services and facilities are open to 
continuing education students. Similarly, such students must comply with the 
College regulations which pertain to all students, with one exception: 
incoming part time students do not have to pay a reservation deposit. 

For individuals interested in professional and personal development, the 
department offers non-credit programs, including classes and workshops for 
children. 

College Misericordias academic support system includes a developmental 
education program for students with skill deficiencies. 

The developmental program provides courses in reading, study skills, writing 
and mathematics. Students are required to take these courses as a result of 
their freshman test scores. The courses do not provide credits toward 
graduation. 

When a student needs to take a specific College course in a given semester but 
it is not part of the course offerings in that semester, the student may contract 
to do a directed study. 

Permission for directed studies must come from the Academic dean; directed 
study contract forms may be obtained from the registrar. 

Students should apply for directed study only in exceptional situations.

Degree Honors 



The Honors Program at College Misericordia consists of two components: 
College Honors and Degree Honors. The first level of the program, College 
Honors, is the general honors program open to qualified students chosen for 
the program. Degree Honors, the second level of the Honors Program, 
involves study within a participating major or discipline. In order to take part 
in the Degree Honors program, a student must complete the College Honors 
program. Students who complete College Honors are not required to complete 
the Degree Honors component. 

The College Honors program is a college-wide program which involves a 
course sequence supplemented by other activities, and advisement. The 
College Honors course sequence entails the Honors Colloquia and an Honors 
Thesis. The Honors Colloquia fulfills the College's core requirements. 

College Honors Course Sequence 

Freshman Honors Colloquia 6 credits 

Honors sections of History of Western Civilization 1 and II 

Sophomore Honors Colloquia 6 credits 

Honors sections of Western World Literature I and II 

Junior Honors Colloquia 6 credits 

Honors sections of Philosophy of Religion and World Religions 

The above colloquia fulfill these core requirements: 

History — 6 credits; Literature— 6 credits; Philosophy— 3 credits; Religious 

Studies — 3 credits. 

The Honors Thesis does not fulfill a core requirement but may be taken as a 
free elective. 

In order to take the second level of the Honors Program, Degree Honors, a 
student must be enrolled in the College Honors program and must be majoring 
in a discipline which participates in the Degree Honors program. The student 
must take three courses with honors requirements in their major field and

Independent study is the special investigation of a selected topic, or it may be 
undertaken by an advanced student whose academic requirements cannot be 
met by regular catalog offerings. Independent study may not be taken simply 
to accrue existing course credits. 

To apply for independent study one must define the topic or issue to be 
pursued, and obtain permission from the faculty member who will sponsor the 
study, from the chairman of the division and the Academic Dean. 

The faculty sponsor(s) will be involved in planning and evaluating the project 
only; the student should be capable of independent work. 

Independent study is not governed by the academic calendar. A project may be 
started and ended at any point during the semester. Students should register 
for independent study in the registrar's office at the beginning of the semester 
during which the study will be completed. 

Independent study application forms may be obtained from the registrar. 

Students who seek a leave of absence from the College should submit a letter 
to the Academic Dean stating the reasons for the request and the length of the 
leave, if known. The Dean will review the student's records and will reply in 
writing. A copy of the reply will be placed in the student's permanent file. 

To return to the College, the student must submit a written request to the Dean 
of Admissions, stating the reason(s) for the leave and the desired time of 
return. This request should be made at least six weeks before the start of 
classes in which the student wishes to enroll. 

Students who plan to study abroad should request a leave of absence from the 
Academic Dean and indicate when they will return to the College. 

At the end of each semester, students sign up for the classes they want to take 
during the next semester. This process is handled by the student and the 
registrar. Registration takes place when students submit payment for tuition 
and fees to the comptroller. 

Class pre-registration forms must be completed by the student and signed by 
the student's advisor before pre-registration. A deposit of $75 is required when 
a student pre-registers. The deposit is non-refundable and will be credited to 
the tuition bill. 

Students who wish to take more than 18 credits in one semester must seek 
permission from the Academic Dean prior to pre-registration. Students must 
pay an additional per credit charge for every credit taken over 18 (see Tuition 
and Fees).

charged, payable in the comptroller's office when the student pre-registers. 

Students who wish to obtain a second baccalaureate degree must complete all 
the requirements for the second major and accumulate a minimum total of 160 
credits, 60 of which must be completed at College Misericordia. 

Those pursuing a second degree must be officially accepted into the second 
major program area by the division which offers the major. 



Students may withdraw from classes until the date specified on the current 
academic calendar as the last day to withdraw from classes. 

The first week of classes is the drop/add period, during which time schedule 
changes may be made with the registrar. Drop/add forms are available in the 
registrar's office. A $5 fee is charged for each drop /add form processed. 

A grade of "F" will be assigned to any student who drops a course without the 
Academic Dean's permission.

Services provided by the Act 101 program address academic, social and 
emotional needs of participating students. The program provides direction in 
interpersonal communication, personal growth, creative problem solving, test 
taking, reading and study skills. 

A pre-college summer program teaches incoming students the skills they need 
for academic success. During the school year, counseling and tutorial services 
are ongoing. 

Students who are learning disabled, sensory impaired or physically 
handicapped can receive special educational services from trained special 
educators. Information about the Alternative Learners Program is available 
from the chairman of the Division of Education. 

Through cooperative programs with Wilkes College and the University of 
Scranton, College Misericordia students can take part in Air Force and Army 
Reserve Officers' Training Corps. 

The Air Force ROTC program is based at Wilkes; the University of Scranton 
administers the Army ROTC program. Students who participate in ROTC at 
these institutions do so without penalty to their full time academic status at 
College Misericordia. Free elective credits are awarded by the College for 
ROTC participation. 

Tuition for ROTC courses is paid directly to the institutions offering the 
programs. More information about ROTC may be obtained from the registrar. 

College Misericordia's Center for Professional Development provides training 
and consultation to individuals and groups in the human services field. 
Training programs are conducted on campus or they can be delivered on site 
for special groups. 

The Center has conducted staff development programs for senior citizens' 
centers, nursing homes, hospitals and a number of social services agencies. 

The cooperative education program integrates academic study with work 
experience in the community. Students may earn academic credit for full or 
part time work assignments related to their educational interests. The job 
assignments are supervised by College faculty. Students pay tuition for the 
credits they earn in field experiences and earn salaries which vary with each 
work assignment. 

Cooperative education enables students to explore career opportunities and 
prepares them for entry into the job market. By means of cooperative 
education, students experience personal growth, develop independent learning 
skills and enjoy a broad based education.

Students may audit courses at one-half tuition cost based on full or part time 
credit charges. No credit is awarded for audited courses. Auditors are 
admitted to courses as space is available. Matriculating students who wish to 
audit a course must seek permission from the registrar. 

College Misericordia provides an option for students or parents to pay tuition, 
fees and other charges on a deferred payment plan. The plan permits 
educational costs to be spread over a period of time. The requirements of the 
plan are as follows: 

Only part time students are eligible. 

A down payment of twenty (20) percent of the total semester charges is 
required. 

Deferments are limited to one semester; the unpaid balance must be paid 
before final examinations that semester. Failure to pay charges in full before 
final exams may result in loss of credit for the semester. 

At the close of each month, the unpaid balance will be charged a one (1) 
percent finance charge. 

Students who fail to meet these requirements will not be eligible for deferred 
payments in the future. 

Only the comptroller may grant deferred payment plans, and only at the 
request of the director of continuing education. 

Participants in the plan must sign and receive a copy of the deferred 
payment plan. 

Full time students may arrange to pay all or part of their college costs in 
monthly installments. A $40 annual fee is charged to cover the processing of 
payments. Students must be enrolled in the Installment plan prior to the start 
of the academic year. The plan is managed by Academic Management 
Services, Inc., Pawtucket, Rhode Island. 

It is a College policy that any outstanding balances will be charged a one 
percent finance charge at the close of every month. This policy is waived for 
the following students: 

Students enrolled in the Academic Management Services program (see 
Tuition Payment Plan for Full Time Students). 

Students with loans pending who have received a waiver from the financial 
aid office. 



Students who receive rehabilitation benefits or Veterans' Education benefits.

Procedures 



It is College Misericordia's philosophy that students of ability should have the 
opportunity to attend the college of their choice regardless of family income. 
For sixty years, College Misericordia has helped students and parents afford a 
superior college education. 

The College participates in a number of financial aid programs. These 
programs generate funds from Federal, State and College resources. 
Additional financial aid monies are contributed by alumni and friends of the 
College. The financial aid office packages aid from a combination of sources to 
meet, as fully as possible, the student's indicated need. 

Misericordia is designated as an eligible institution by the Pennsylvania Higher 
Education Assistance Agency (PHEAA), which allows qualified students to 
participate in the State Grant Program and the Guaranteed Student Loan 
Program. 

The College is also designated as an eligible institution by the Department of 
Education, permitting students to take advantage of the Federal Pell Grant 
Program and the Federal campus based programs, including Supplemental 
Educational Opportunity Grants, National Direct Student Loans and the 
Federal Work Study Program. 

The College also participates in the Nursing Loan Program under the auspices 
of the Department of Health and Human Services. 

Three types of financial assistance are available: 

Scholarships/Grants: Gift aid given directly to the student based on 
financial need or some area of achievement, such as musical ability, 
academic record, etc. The student does not repay this type of award. 

Loans: Monies given to students to meet educational expenses, but for 
which students and/or their families assume repayment responsibilities, 
usually after withdrawal or graduation from school. Interest is charged on 
loans; interest charges vary with different loan programs. 

Work-Study: Employment which allows students to earn a portion of the 
money needed to meet educational expenses. 

Inquiries regarding all financial aid programs should be directed to the 
financial aid office. 

All students who wish to be considered for financial assistance must file a 
College Misericordia Application for Financial Assistance. 

New students should fill out and submit the application for financial 
assistance which is attached to the admissions application. Before an 
application may be considered, a student must first be admitted to the 
College, and other necessary financial information must be on file in the 
financial aid office (see Pennsylvania Residents and Out of State Residents, 
below). All aid for which a student wishes to be considered should be 
indicated on the application. The application is then returned to the 
financial aid office. 

Returning students obtain a College Misericordia Application for Financial 
Assistance from the financial aid office. Before an application may be 
considered, a student must be pre-registered for classes in the academic year

for which the aid is requested, and other necessary financial aid information 
must be on file in the financial aid office (see Pennsylvania Residents and 
Out of State Residents, below). All aid for which a student wishes to be 
considered should be indicated on the application. The application is then 
returned to the financial aid office. 

All Pennsylvania residents must file the College's Application for Financial 
Assistance. In addition, Pennsylvania residents must file the PHEAA/ Federal 
Student Aid composite form with the State higher education agency. This form 
determines eligibility for Federal Pell Grant, PHEAA State Grant and College 
administered need-based aid programs, including National Direct Student 
Loans, Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Nursing Loans and 
Work-Study. 

The PHEAA/Federal Student Aid composite form should be filed as soon as 
possible after January 1, but no later than May 1, prior to the academic year 
for which assistance is requested. 

All out of state residents must file the College's Application for Financial 
Assistance. In addition, out of state residents are required to file for a Pell 
Grant. Students should also check with their high school or state agency to 
determine if they are eligible for a grant from their state of residence. 

Effective for the 1984-1985 academic year, all students who wish to apply for 
College administered need-based programs (National Direct Student Loans, 
Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants, Nursing Loans, Work-Study) 
must file the PHEAA/Federal Student Aid form regardless of state of 
residence. 

Although out of state residents are not eligible for Pennsylvania State Grants, 
the information obtained from the PHEAA/Federal Student Aid form will be 
used by the financial aid office to determine eligibility for various 
campus-based programs. 

The College Misericordia Application for Financial Assistance should be 
submitted to the College by: 

March 1 for incoming freshmen and transfer students; 

April 1 for returning upperclassmen. 

Applications and financial aid forms will be accepted later than these dates, 
but no assurances can be made that funds will be available for late applicants. 
For Pell Grants and State Grants, students should adhere to the deadlines 
indicated on the forms from those agencies. 

Once all the required information is received by the College, and the student's 
enrollment status can be verified according to the application procedures 
outlined above, the financial aid office will determine the student's financial 
aid in accordance with school policy. The student will be notified in writing of 
the results immediately thereafter. 

Financial aid is awarded for one academic year at a time. Aid is renewed for 
subsequent years: 

If the student annually requests assistance by completing all appropriate 
forms described above.

Students may request an appointment with the financial aid office to review 
the information which determines their aid for the year, and the amount of 
their financial aid package. 

Students have the right to request that their aid be re-evaluated if conditions 
arise which change their ability to meet the expense of their education. The 
Financial Aid Handbook, available in the financial aid office, provides more 
information. 

Sources of financial assistance are described below. More information may be 
obtained from the financial aid office.

other states. These states are Maryland, Ohio, Rhode Island, Connecticut, 
Massachusetts and West Virginia. Prospective students should contact their 
high school guidance office, their state higher education office, or College 
Misericordia's financial aid office to learn more about their state programs and 
to obtain applications. 

Honor Scholarships 

To demonstrate its commitment to academic-excellence, the College awards 
financial assistance to incoming freshmen and transfer students who have 
attained outstanding academic records. The scholarships are renewable until 
graduation, provided minimum grade point averages are maintained: 
freshman year — 3.0 cumulative average; sophomore year — 3.2 cumulative 
average; junior year — 3.4 cumulative average. Students apply directly to the 
admissions office of the College for Honor Scholarships. 

College Grants 

Through its own fund raising efforts, College Misericordia maintains an 
extensive college grant program which helps over 50 percent of Misericordia 
students meet their college costs. These need-based grants are usually offered 
to incoming freshmen and transfers. Students who receive College Grants 
must maintain satisfactory academic progress and participate in at least one 
college approved extracurricular activity. The College Grant program assists 
students with financial need who also participate in the activities of the College 
community. 

Achievement Awards 

Sophomore, junior and senior students who have demonstrated outstanding 
academic and extracurricular achievements may apply for a $250 grant.

Financial Aid Programs 



Loans Guaranteed Student Loan 

This program enables students to borrow directly from a bank or other 
participating lender. Currently, a dependent student may borrow up to 52,500 
per grade level at an eight percent interest rate for new borrowers, if financial 
need is indicated. Students must maintain satisfactory academic progress for 
subsequent loans. Repayment begins six months after the student leaves school 
or changes status to under six credits. The exact amount of loan eligibility is 
determined by this formula: educational costs minus financial aid, minus 
expected family contribution. A qualifying factor is full or part time status. 
Loan checks may only be accepted if their term dates are concurrent with the 
present enrollment period. Applications and other information may be 
obtained from the applicant's lender. 

National Direct Student Loan 

This program provides loans at the low interest rate of five percent to students 
with financial need. Students must be enrolled at least half-time to receive this 
aid. Federal regulations provide that a student may borrow up to S3, 000 tor 
the first two undergraduate years with a S6,000 maximum if funds are 
available. Repayment begins six months after graduation or withdrawal from 
college. Deferments of repayments and cancellation provisions are available 
for certain types of employment. Students are notified of the award of such 
loans by a letter from the College. 

Nursing Loans 

Nursing students who demonstrate financial need may apply for low interest, 
six percent Nursing Loans through the College's financial aid office. The 
Nursing Loan is similar to the National Direct Student Loan in repayment and 
deferments. 

PLUS Loans 

PLUS Loans provide additional funds to meet educational expenses. As with 
Guaranteed Student Loans, monies are borrowed from a bank, savings and 
loan association or credit union. The interest rate is currently twelve percent. 

Borrowers are of three types: 

Parents of dependent students — may borrow up to S3, 000 per grade level 
for each full time undergraduate student. The aggregate total allowed is 
S15,000. 

Graduate students — may also borrow up to S3, 000 per grade level, with an 
aggregate total of $15,000. 

Independent undergraduate students — may borrow up to S2 500 per grade 
level. However, the PLUS Loan, combined with the student's Guaranteed 
Student Loan, cannot exceed $2,500 per grade level, with an aggregate total 
of $12,500. 

Repayment of PLUS Loans begins sixty (60) days after the loan proceeds are 
disbursed. If the borrower is a full time student, the borrower may request to 
defer payment of principal. Applications for PLUS Loans are obtained trom 
the lender.

College Work-Study 

Funded by the Federal government and the College, this program provides 
part time jobs for students during the academic year and full time jobs during 
the summer. Jobs are available on campus and in the local community. 
Students must document financial need to be eligible. Whenever possible, 
students will be assigned jobs related to their educational interests. 

Institutional Work-Study 

The College maintains this work-study program entirely through its own 
funds. It assists students who are not eligible for the Federal program but who 
need to earn part of their college expenses through employment. 

Part Time Jobs 

Some part time employment is available in the community for students. The 
College's placement office can provide more information. 

Some grants, loans and part time employment opportunities are available to 
part time students who carry at least six credits. Eligibility information and 
applications are available from the financial aid office. 

Also, College Misericordia allocates grants for the financial support of part 
time students. For eligibility criteria and other information, contact the

Withdrawals 



Change of 
Academic 
Status 



When a student withdraws from the College, he or she must file an official 
notice of withdrawal with the Academic Dean. If such withdrawal reduces the 
student's credits to zero (0), the percentage of the charges refunded is 
determined by the date the Academic Dean receives official notice. 

Tuition and Board refunds are granted as follows: 

Time of Withdrawal Amount 

First Week 100 percent 

Second Week 75 percent 

Third Week 50 percent 

Fourth Week 25 percent 

No refunds of charges are allowed after the fourth week. 

Course fees are refundable only during the drop/add period (first week of 
classes). No refunds are awarded on course fees after this period. 

If the refund procedure results in a credit balance on a student's account and if 
that student receives financial aid, the financial aid must be proportionately 
reduced according to Title IV refund procedure stipulated by Federal 
regulations, and restored to the appropriate financial aid funds. The 
calculation for Title IV refund procedure is based upon the following formula: 

Title IV Aid (less Work-Study) applicable amount refunded to 
All aid for payment period refund Title IV funds 

(less Work-Study) 

There are no refunds to students who are dismissed from the College. There 
are no refunds on any other fees, including advance registration deposits or 
room deposits. 

When a student withdraws from a residence hall or off-campus housing, he or 
she must notify the Dean of Students in writing. Room charges are not 
refundable. Room damage fees are refundable upon written request to the 
Dean of Students. 

If a student drops from full to part time status after the end of the refund 
period (first four weeks of classes) no adjustments will be made to the tuition 
charges originally assessed nor to financial aid. 

However, if a student drops from full to part time during the refund period, 
adjustments to tuition charges will be made as follows: 

1 . The full time tuition charges originally assessed will be reduced according 
to the official date on the drop/add slip from the Academic Dean's office, 
and by applying a percentage of adjustment based on the following chart: 
First Week 100% refund of tuition 
Second Week 75% refund of tuition 
Third Week 50% refund of tuition 
Fourth Week 25% refund of tuition 

2. Part time tuition charges will then be computed by multiplying the actual 
number of credits being taken after the drop, by the appropriate per credit 
charge.

3. The part time charge (from step 2) will be added to the amount of tull time 
tuition charge remaining on account after the adjustment is made to tull 
time charges in step 1. The result will yield the adjusted tuition charge 
assessed for the semester. 

Example: 

A full time business student is originally assessed S1850 tuition charge. 
During the second week of classes (75% refund period) the student drops 
from full time to 11 credits. Tuition charges are adjusted as follows: 

$1850.00 Full time tuition charge 
x .75 75% refund period 

Amount of reduction of full time tuition charges 

Original full time tuition charge 
Amount of reduction 

Amount of full time tuition charge remaining on account

Per credit tuition rate for business courses 
Number of credits after drop 

Part time tuition charges 

Part time tuition charge 

Amount of full time tuition remaining on account 

$1496.50 Adjusted tuition charge for semester 

If a credit balance is generated to the student's account as a result of the above 
adjustment, financial aid will be proportionately reduced based on Title IV 
Refund Procedures and restored to the appropriate financial aid kinds. 

Refunds of credit balances on student accounts caused by overpayment (either 
from financial aid or personal transaction) will not be processed until after the 
fourth full week of classes has been completed each semester. 

Checks will be issued ten working days after the fourth week of classes. 
Refund checks, therefore, will not be issued until the sixth week of classes. 

The ten working days give the comptroller time to verity the amount of 
refund, to check on any other charges, and to confer with the financial aid 
director. 

Student refund requests must be submitted by the student in writing, and must 
be approved by the comptroller and the financial aid director. Refund 
application forms are available in the comptroller's office. 

Students are advised to begin the academic year with sufficient tunds to pay 
for books and living expenses until refund checks are issued.

Refunds of overpayments caused by Guaranteed Student Loans will not be

Loans will then be processed, after receipt of written request, within ten 
working days from the date the loan check is submitted to the comptroller, or 
the written request is received from the student, whichever is more recent. 
Students may request that their refunds be credited to their account for the 
following semester. 

When a student drops a course or withdraws from Weekend College or 
Summer School, official notice must be filed with the continuing education 
office. The percentage of refund is as follows: 
100 percent prior to the first class hour. 

50 percent prior to the second class. 

No refund after the second class. 

All refund percentages are computed from charges to the student, not from the 
amount paid. 

Course fees are refundable only during the drop/add period (first week of 
classes). There are no refunds to students dismissed from the College. Advance 
registration deposits and any other fees are not refundable. 

If the refund procedure results in a credit balance on a student's account and 
that student receives financial aid, the financial aid must be adjusted 
proportionately according to Title IV refund procedure. The financial aid 
director can provide clarification of this procedure.

Careers and 
Placement 



College Misericordia students take their education seriously, but they <ilso 
recognize that academics are only one part of the college experience. Most ol 
the College's students are involved in extracurricular activities, some offered 
by the College and others organized by the students themselves. 

Students participate in making the decisions which affect their governance by 
means of an active student government association which is the liaison 
between students and the faculty and administration. More than twenty 
student clubs on campus provide experiences in a wide variety of student 
interests, including art, behavioral sciences, biology, chorus, orchestra, 
history, drama, music, nursing, education, and others. The Newspaper, a 
student news publication, involves many writers, editors and photographers. 
Students and faculty annually publish a literary and art magazine, Instress, 
and the College yearbook. 

Cultural events, including concerts, film series, plays and lectures add to the 
non-academic side of students' education. 

Intercollegiate sports at the College include women's basketball, softball, field 
hockey, volleyball and cross-country. Men compete at the intercollegiate level 
in basketball, baseball and cross-country. 

Members of the student body, faculty and administration enjoy a very active 
intramural athletic program which includes co-ed flag football, soccer, 
basketball, volleyball and softball, men's and women's tennis and men's and 
women's basketball. There is also a men's club football team that plays similar 
clubs from other colleges in the area. 

College Misericordia is a Catholic college and, as such, offers students many 
different ways to express religious faith and values. Students of all 
denominations find the Campus Ministry program a focus for religious, social 
and community service activities. 

In keeping with the College's Mercy tradition of justice and compassion, 
Campus Ministry sponsors programs which not only serve others but serve 
students as well, by giving them opportunities to form and test their own sets 
of values. 

The College offers a comprehensive careers and placement service for enrolled 
students as well as alumni. 

For some students, career choices are easy; tor others such a decision may 
seem to be unreachable. The careers and placement office can assist students 
through individual counseling and testing, and workshops on communication 
skills, personal growth, and decision making. 

As students approach graduation, the careers and placement office provides 
guidance in resume writing, scheduling job interviews, or in applying to 
graduate school.

Residence Halls 



All of the College's services and extracurricular programs are available to com- 
muting students, many of whom are just as active on campus as the residents. 

The Commuter Council, a student-organized association, is attentive to the 
needs and concerns of non-resident students. The Council addresses both the 
academic and social aspects of college life for commuters. 

Very few students go through their college years without needing advice at one 
time or another. The College's counseling office responds to diverse student 
needs, from academic problems to personal crises. 

In addition to individual counseling, the office provides psychological 
assessment, research, evaluation and referral services. The counseling office 
sponsors workshops on leadership training and other personal and social 
development skills throughout the year. 

The Francesca McLaughlin Library is located on the second floor of the 
Administration Building. Named after Sister M. Francesca McLaughlin, RSM, 
a librarian at the College for more than twenty-five years, the facility 
encompasses 15,000 square feet and houses stacks for 90,000 volumes. 

The library's bright and congenial atmosphere is enhanced by art works, 
plants, modern furnishings and displays of photographs of the College and its 
history. 

The library provides materials and services which support the educational 
objectives of the College. Students have access to an excellent collection of 
volumes, periodicals, microfiche, and reference materials, including a special 
collection of nursing publications. 

During freshman orientation students learn how to make the best use of the 
library. This training is ongoing through a library skills program presented at 
special learning stations. Individual instruction is always available from the 
reference librarian and other staff members.when needed. 

Interlibrary loan agreements enable students and faculty to take advantage of 
regional library holdings of many thousands of volumes. 

During the academic year, the library is open 82 hours per week. Professional 
librarians are on hand to provide assistance at all times Monday through 
Friday. 

The College operates six resident facilities: McHale, Alumnae, McAuley, and 
Walsh Halls, Carlow House and Mercy House. All rooms are designed for 
double occupancy. 

The environment in the residence halls is one is living and learning. A vital 
part of the students' total educational experience are the relationships that 
grow from living and sharing with others in the dorms. Residents participate in 
making decisions affecting resident life. The residence hall program strives to 
create an intellectual and friendly atmosphere conducive to academic 
achievement and personal responsibility. 

The residence halls are secure, attractively furnished, and conveniently located 
on campus. Each building houses study lounges, laundry rooms and 
recreational areas.

Student Health 
Service 



The College's health service personnel encourage wellness among all members 
of the Misericordia community. School programs and individual counseling 
stress preventive medicine, sound nutritional habits and 

Registered nurses staff the infirmary in cooperation with the school physician. 
Most health problems are taken care of on campus, but when the need arises, 
students are driven to doctor's offices or hospitals in the area. 

A complete physical examination is a requirement for admission to the College. 
A comprehensive health insurance plan is available to all full time students. 

The health service frequently sponsors such programs as blood drives, slimnas- 
tics, CPR, first aid training and other educational workshops.
