Nonresident Tuition Exemption (AB 540)

Nonresident Tuition Exemption (AB 2000)

In 2001, the California legislature passed a law (AB 540) that exempts certain categories of students from paying nonresident tuition. To be eligible, you must have completed at least three years of high school and have graduated (or earned a high school equivalency) while living and attending school in California.

Effective January 1, 2015 students may be exempt from paying Nonresident Tuition under AB 540 if they attained credits earned in California from a California high school equivalent to three or more years of full-time high school coursework and a total of three or more years of attendance in California elementary schools, California secondary schools, or a combination of those schools. The student must also have received a diploma or equivalent in California.

If you believe you are eligible for this special exemption, submit the California Nonresident Tuition Exemption Request form along with a high school transcript to the Admissions & Records Office for review. The form is available online at www.losmedanos.edu, or at the Admissions & Records Office in Pittsburg or Brentwood.

DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals)

Nonresident Tuition Exemption (SB 150) Concurrently enrolled students (high school students enrolled in college classes) who are classified as non-resident students for tuition purposes may be eligible for the SB150 waiver of non-resident tuition while still in high school. Students must be special admit parttime (enrolled in 11 units or less) students who currently reside in California and are attending high school in California. Students wishing to take advantage of this exemption should complete a residency reclassification form and attach a copy of high school transcripts showing current enrollment. Forms and attachments should be submitted to the Admissions & Records Office in Pittsburg or Brentwood.

Effective June, 2014, students who have been given a C33 Visa (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) may qualify for California residency with appropriate documentation. Please contact Admissions & Records for more information.

Special Admit High School Students Students who are 14 years of age or older and those who have completed the eighth grade or higher are eligible for concurrent enrollment as ‘special admit’ students. High school students may register in up to seven (7) units in fall and spring terms or five (5) units of college coursework in the summer with approval of their school principal and parent*. With appropriate approvals, special admit students may register in advanced academic and vocational credit courses (degree applicable courses only).

Students 14 – 15 years of age and/or special admit students requesting to register in more than the unit limit are required to complete the High School Student Special Admit Introduction. Signatures for approval must be submitted at the time of registration on an Age Waiver Form or Unit Limit Waiver Form. * Important note: By giving consent, parents of concurrently enrolled high school students agree they understand that the college is an adult learning environment and students are expected to behave accordingly. Additionally, they understand that classes will be taught at the college level and the curriculum and college procedures will not be modified nor will other accommodations be made.

Special Admit Enrollment Policies Concurrently enrolled high school students may register in college courses with submission of a college application and proper approval forms on a space-available basis. Registration for high school students must be completed in-person on designated registration dates or anytime later (see registration dates on preceding page). New special admit students must complete an application online at least 24 hours prior to registration. Continuing special admit students do not need to reapply. All special admit students must bring a Special Admit Form at the time of registration. If applicable, students will also need an Age Waiver Form or Unit Limit Waiver Form. The Special Admit Form must be filled out and signed by the appropriate Principal or Counselor at the High School and must be presented at the time of registration. Blank forms will not be accepted.

Special admit students must bring documentation to verify prerequisites (if required) at the time of registration. Prerequisites are satisfied with a C or better in prerequisite coursework. In-progress work will not be accepted. Students may also take an assessment test in math or English to satisfy prerequisites. Appointments must be made for testing at www.losmedanos.edu/assessment or www.losmedanos.edu/brentwood/assessment. Students must have a student ID in order to sign up for the assessment test.

Special Admit Introduction Requirement Students 14 – 15 years of age or high school students wishing to appeal the unit limit must participate in a High School Student Special Admit Introduction and request approval from the Director of Admissions & Records.

Open Course Policy Every course is open for registration to any person admitted to the college who meets the course prerequisites and en­roll­ment pro­ce­dures. All courses are offered for college credit; au­dit­ing is not permitted.

Duplicate or Conflicting Courses Students are not permitted to register in more than one section of the same course, and may not register in courses that have scheduled meeting times which conflict.

Prerequisites/Advisories Some courses have pre­req­ui­sites or advisories in­clud­ed with the course de­scrip­tion. These are designated to assist students in the selection of course levels for their maximum success. To ensure proper placement, prerequisites for all classes will be checked at the time of registration. If you have taken a prerequisite course at an institution other than LMC, you should request to have an official transcript sent to the LMC Admissions & Records Office prior to registration or bring a transcript with you for purposes of verification.

Prerequisites may be challenged through the fifth day of the term. Challenge forms are available through the Admissions & Records Office. Students must provide documentation along with the prerequisite challenge form to substantiate satisfying the prerequisite by other means. A student may be conditionally registered in a course upon submission of a completed challenge form. If the challenge is denied, the student will be dropped from the class and the enrollment fee will be refunded. References to “successful completion” implies with a grade of ‘C’ or better. In progress work will not be accepted. Advisories are recommendations only and need not be verified.

Wait List

5. If you are on a wait list at the start of instruction, you must attend the first class meeting to see if there is space avail­able for late enrollment. If you do not attend the first class, you lose your place on the priority listing and another student may be added in­stead. If approved, the instructor will give you a unique late-add code. The code must be entered in WebAdvisor by the end of the late registration period (February 3 for semesterlength classes). Your registration is not complete until your add code is processed. Please note: Once a course has started, the option to have your name placed on a waitlist is no longer available.

Once courses with a wait list fill to their maximum ca­pac­i­ty, you have the option to add your name to a priority listing in the event drops should occur or the instructor agrees to add late enrollees (at the first class meet­ing).

Student Fee and Enrollment Refund Fee refunds for students who withdraw from school or drop classes by the deadline for class add/drop will be automatically calculated at the District Office Accounting Department. Refund checks for complete or partial withdrawals from school will be processed after the first two weeks of instruction. Refund checks will be mailed to the student address on file in the LMC Admissions Office. If the student paid by credit card on WebAdvisor, the refund will be processed as a credit to the credit card. Don’t be left behind! If you have a new address, please update your address in WebAdvisor immediately! This needs to be done prior to the time of withdrawal or change of program. A refund will not be made if the student has other outstanding debts to the college. Refund checks will be issued monthly after the first two weeks of instruction each semester. All refund checks will be made payable to the student whether paid by cash, check, money order, cashier’s check or credit card. No refund of the enrollment fee will be made to any student who withdraws from classes after the first 14 days of instruction for a full semester class, or after 10% of the class time for a short-term class. An example, a 10-day course would need to be dropped in just one day! And a one-day course would need to be dropped the day before the course. Students who register and subsequently drop all classes prior to the beginning of the semester may petition for an early refund at the Cashier’s Office. Parking Permit Refunds Parking permit refunds will be made if the student drops all classes within the first two weeks of instruction for semester-length courses or by 10% of the length of short-term courses. The parking decal must be returned to the Cashier’s Office for a refund. Financial Aid Enrollment Fee Refunds If subsequent to paying enrollment fees, a student becomes eligible for financial aid and receives an enrollment fee waiver, the student will automatically be mailed/credited a full refund check according to the same refund processing cycle as enrollment fee refunds. Enrollment Fee Deferments If subsequent to paying enrollment fees, a student becomes eligible for an enrollment fee deferment to an outside agency, the student must have the document stating the deferment submitted to the Cashier’s Office. The student will then automatically be mailed a refund check of the deferred fees within two weeks after the outside agency has been billed. Details regarding the refund policy are available from the Cashier’s Office or Admissions & Records Office.

Student Debts to the College Students are expected to clear their financial debts promptly. Students who owe LMC money for tuition or enrollment fees, overdue library books, returned checks, or other debts will not be allowed to use college services (such as registering for classes or obtaining official transcripts) until their debts are paid.

If your debt remains unpaid, Los Medanos College may garnish your California State Tax Return through the State-mandated Chancellor’s Office Tax Offset Program (COTOP). In this instance, a 25% administrative fee will be added to your delinquent balance. This balance will be forwarded for collection to the State Franchise Tax Board (FTB). In the event you are owed a State tax refund, win a California Lottery prize,

Final Exam Schedule Monday – Friday Day Classes Final examination week at Los Medanos College is Monday, May 22, through Friday, May 26. (Make-up finals will be scheduled on Friday only with advanced instructor consent.) In order to determine the scheduled final examination time for a particular day class, locate the day and class meeting time on the top chart and note the letter in the time slot.

SPRING 2017 Day Class Schedule

Next, locate the letter representing the time block for your regularly scheduled class on the bottom schedule, which will tell you on what day and what time you will take the final for that class. For example, if you have a class MWF 10-11 a.m., the letter that corresponds to this class is “C” on the top chart. By locating “C” on the bottom chart, you will find that your scheduled final exam time for the class is Monday, May 22 from 10 a.m. to noon. If your class was TTh 11-12:30, the letter on the top chart would be “L”. By locating “L” on the lower chart, you will find that the final will be on Thursday, May 25, 10 a.m. to noon. For any course that crosses more than one block, use the block that contains the majority of the class time. For example, if your class meets TTh from 8 to 10 a.m., use “J”. If your class meets TTh 1:30-3 p.m., use “N”. Friday-Only classes held at LMC Pittsburg campus or the Brentwood Center will have their finals on Friday, May 26.

Area C2; IGETC Area 3B The Western world in which we live today is a product of the past we share. Based in the Humanist intellectual revolution of the Renaissance, the Modern world began. What started so brightly darkened into a European world torn apart by religious wars and absolute monarchies. In the Enlightenment that followed, rationalism led equally to advances in science, sociology and philosophy, but also to revolution and war on a global scale. The 19th century saw Romanticism in the arts, nationalistic politics, the rise of capitalism, industrialization and colonization and exploitation of the non-Western world. The dilemmas posed by these controversies led in turn to a reappraisal of humanity in the births of psychology, existentialism and relativism.

Student Success & Support Program (SSSP) WELCOME TO SSSP The Student Success and Support Program staff at Los Medanos College welcomes our students and appreciates the opportunity to teach, inspire, nurture, and be an integral part of their learning process. The Student Success and Support Program (SSSP) is designed to support the transition of new students into the College by providing core services that promote academic achievement and successful completion of degrees, transfer preparation, career technical education certificates, or career advancement. The mission of SSSP includes ensuring fair and equal access to campus resources, accurate and unbiased assessment and placement, and the provision of quality guidance and support for students to reach their educational goals. After you complete your college application, www.losmedanos.edu/new, you will be required to complete the following:

Orientation (New Student Workshops) All students new to Los Medanos College must complete the online orientation at www.losmedanos.edu/lmcorientation and attend a New Student Workshop. Sign up for a New Student Workshop online: www.losmedanos.edu/lmcorientation/. At the workshop students will be able to clarify their education goals, learn about student programs and services, as well as develop an education plan. Assessment/Placement - The English or ESL and math assessment/placement, are designed to help you and your counselor determine which courses are appropriate for your skill level. Students who have taken math classes in high school, or who have passed certain tests, may not need to take the assessments, to fulfill this requirement. For more information, visit to www.losmedanos.edu/assessment.

Education Plan - All LMC students are required to have an online education plan. Students will meet with an academic counselor who will assist them in planning their classes and show them how to create an education plan on InSite/WebAdvisor. Then students will use the electronic education plan to register for their classes. As part of the education planning process, all students must state a specific education goal no later than upon completion of 15 units of coursework. The education plan that students develop with an academic counselor becomes a roadmap, outlining the classes a student needs to complete in order to achieve their goal. All new students must complete their orientation, assessment, and an education plan in order to maintain priority registration and meet state-mandated requirements. There are no exemptions. Services are available at both the Pittsburg Campus and the Brentwood Center. For more information, visit www.losmedanos. edu/registration or call the Welcome Desk at (925) 473-7434.

Academic Scholarship Standards Attendance Students are expected to be punctual and attend all courses in which they are enrolled. Students may be dropped by the instructor for failure to attend class in the following cir­cum­stanc­es: 1. Failure to attend first class meet­ing. 2. Absence from three consecutive weeks of instruction. 3. At any point when it is concluded that absences have irretrievably af­fected the student’s progress in his/her coursework. Grades should not be used as punishment for absences. How­ev­er, academic grades may be lowered to the degree that in­struc­tors can es­ti­mate the loss of cog­ni­tive, affective, or skills learning due to student absences. Grading The evaluation in college-level courses is a prime re­spon­si­bil­i­ty of the instructor. Such evaluation involves the mea­sure­ments of achieve­ment against the objectives of the course and the assignment of a letter grade to denote the student’s degree of success. The grade, as submitted by the instructor, shall be considered final and permanent. Grades cannot be changed by submitting additional course work or taking examinations after the semester (or term) is com­plet­ed. Under state law, the in­struc­ tor’s determination is final unless the grade given was the result of 1) mistake, 2) fraud, 3) bad faith, or 4) incompetency. (Ed. Code Section 76224.) No grade may be challenged more than one year after the end of the session in which the grade was as­signed. For information on the policy regarding grade chal­leng­es, contact the Office of Student Life. Final Grades Final grades can be accessed at the end of instruction, following instructor grade entry on-line. Students can view their final grades by logging into WebAdvisor.

Incomplete — Academic work that is incomplete for un­fore­see­able emergency and justifiable reasons at the end of a term; student must be passing course to be eligible for incomplete. Student will not re-enroll in the course to complete pending as­sign­ments, projects or exams. A final grade is assigned when the work has been com­plet­ed or after one year.

Pass/No Pass Grade Option: The purpose of the Pass/No Pass (P/NP) option is to allow stu­dents to take challenging courses while avoiding undue concern for their grade point averages. Students who select this option are, however, expected to complete the course, comply with attendance re­quire­ments, and comply with all other re­quire­ments of the course. Selected courses have been labeled with “SC” to indicate student choice for the P/NP option. If students do not choose the P/NP option before the deadline, they will be issued a letter grade for the course. It is often best to discuss this choice with a coun­se­lor. In order to exercise this option, a petition must be filed with the Admissions and Records Office at the time of registration or no later than the deadline listed for a full-semester class. Petitions for sum­mer session and short-term courses must be filed within the first thirty percent of the course. After the deadline has passed, the grading choice may not be reversed.

Important information related to the P/NP option: • A P grade represents a letter grade of A, B, or C • A NP grade represents a letter grade of D or F • Units earned on a P/NP basis will not be used to calculate grade point av­er­ag­es • Units attempted for which NP is recorded will be con­sid­ered in factoring probation and dis­miss­al status • Units earned on a P/NP basis will apply to the 60 units required for an associate degree • Students should be aware that other colleges and uni­ver­si­ties may or may not limit the number of P units that will be accepted from transfer students. Probation & Dismissal Probation and dismissal status is based on coursework that is attempted and/or completed within the Contra Costa Community College District. Students should be aware that their academic standing is not based solely on units completed at Los Medanos College. Categories of Probation & Dismissal

• Probation 1 Status: One (1) semester with cumulative GPA under 2.0 with 12 or more cumulative units attempted, and/or more than 50 percent of attempted courses resulting in a W, I, and/or NP. • Probation 2 Status: Two (2) consecutive semesters with cumulative GPA under 2.0 with 12 or more cumulative units attempted, and/or more than 50 percent of attempted courses resulting in a W, I, and/or NP. • Dismissal Status: Three (3) consecutive semesters with cumulative GPA under 2.0 with 12 or more cumulative units attempted, and/or more than 50 percent of attempted courses resulting in a W, I, and/or NP.

Course Repetition Courses are not repeatable unless noted within the course descriptions listed in the catalog. Students may repeat a non-repeatable course only to alleviate a substandard grade of D, F or NC/NP. Students are limited to enrolling in credit classes a maximum of three times. This includes students earning substandard grades or dropping with a “W.” Students enrolling for a third time will be blocked from registration and required to submit a petition to repeat. Students are urged to manage course load and be aware of the number of enrollments for a specific course. Carefully consider dropping courses and understand all deadlines. Take advantage of tutoring and other support services to achieve successful completion of all courses. When a course is repeated to alleviate a substandard grade, the previous grade will be disregarded in computing the student’s grade point average. The substandard grade will remain on the student’s transcript with a notation that the course has been repeated. Courses that are repeatable are noted in the college catalog with the number of repeats allowed. Students may not repeat a course beyond the maximum repeats, even to alleviate substandard grades. Course repetition cannot be used to make up an incomplete ‘I’ grade. Withdrawals • Students who have documented extenuating circumstances such as accidents, illness or other circumstances beyond the control of the student, may apply for a withdrawal after the 75 percent of the term (petition required). • A ‘W’ shall not be assigned if the student withdraws due to the impact of fire, flood or other extraordinary conditions (petition required). • In the case of discriminatory treatment or retaliation for discriminatory treatment a ‘W’ shall not be assigned. • Active or reserve military students who receive orders compelling a withdrawal from courses will receive a military withdrawal which shall not be counted in the limit of withdrawals or progress probation. Repeat of Biology Courses Students who have received two substandard grades or ‘W’s or any combination in the same Biology 40, 45 or 50 course will be blocked from future enrollment in that course. Students may appeal the policy using the Petition for Course Repetition form.

Academic Renewal Policy Based on the Academic Renewal Policy, substandard grades may be disregarded if they are not reflective of a student’s demonstrated academic ability. If Academic Renewal is approved, the student’s permanent record will be notated with appropriate comments and the substandard (D, F, NC/NP) unit values will not be computed in the cumulative grade point average. The “renewed” courses and the related grades will not be removed from the record, as the district is required to show a complete and accurate academic record for every student (Title 5, Section 55046). Students MUST meet with a counselor to review options for Academic Renewal, as this procedure is irreversible. 1. You may only utilize Academic Renewal one time within the District 2. Only substandard grades will be renewed 3. You must have completed 20 units of satisfactory work that has been completed within the Contra Costa Community College District or any other accredited college or university, since receiving the last substandard grade (the unit count begins the semester after the substandard grade is received.) In-Progress semesters cannot be included. 4. If you have coursework from another college, student must provide official transcript. 5. You must not have received any D’s, F’s or NC/NP since the substandard work (minimum 2.0 since substandard work) 6. Courses that have already been removed from GPA by course repetition cannot be reversed. 7. Academic Renewal cannot be reversed. 8. There is no minimum or maximum time limit (no waiting period since the substandard work) 9. A maximum of 24 units within the district may be renewed, however each college will make their own adjustments. 10. The processing time is 2 weeks.

The Puente Program is a nationally-recognized program that serves to increase the number of educationally under-served students who transfer to and complete university degrees. Puente students are specially trained to become dynamic and impassioned leaders who return to the community and affect positive change in the lives of our youth. As such, Puente provides three areas of service to students: English, counseling and mentoring. Puente students always enjoy a supportive and invigorating environment where their consciousness is continually expanded through the exploration of Latino history and literature. Simply put, we are in the business of training scholars with vision! If this sounds like something you’re interested in, we’d like to hear from you!

Students are encouraged to organize and participate in clubs that reflect their interests. Each club is registered with the Office of Student Life and has a faculty/ staff advisor who helps organize meetings and plan activities. The Office of Student Life provides support and advising to all LMC clubs. In addition, the office advises and coordinates the Inter-Club Council (ICC) and holds orientations and retreats for club leaders.
