PURPOSE: A significant number of college undergraduate students desire a more comprehensive two-year general degree program than the conventional curriculum. The Human Services Specialization allows students the flexibility of moving into transfer programs in psychology, social work, human services, sociology and other fields. Occupational titles, depending on educational achievement, of human service workers may include Case Worker, Case Management Aide, Eligibility Counselor, Social Service Aide, Probation Officer, Mental Health Counselor, or Crisis Intervention Manager. Human Service professionals and paraprofessionals work to provide people the assistance needed to stabilize their lives and find self-sufficiency and independence through assessment, guidance, counseling, and/or treatment options. Some graduates satisfy their goals by completing the two-year program of general academic studies. Most general studies students plan to transfer to a four-year college or university as more specialized academic interests and aptitudes develop during the program of studies. The framework of academic standards for the associate of arts and sciences degree makes this possible. TRANSFER GUIDELINES: The associate of arts and sciences degrees (AA&S) and associate of science (AS) offered by LFCC are designed to provide freshman and sophomore level course work toward the completion of a bachelor’s degree. The AA&S and AS degree programs require students to take essentially the same courses as required by their university/four-year college counterparts. To help facilitate the transfer process, LFCC has created an online ‘Transfer Guide’ that provides detailed information such as tuition, GPA, application requirements, course equivalents, and other information that may be useful in the transfer process. The transfer guide can found at

Psy.D. Clinical Psychology Chicago Program Guidebook

The Clinical Psychology Doctoral Program (Clinical PsyD) Chicago Campus seeks to set an environment that encourages students, faculty, staff, and administration to work together to understand the expectations for comportment and progress in the APA-accredited doctoral program and to understand and address concerns about fair treatment using informal resolutions. Concerns about fair treatment may be raised at any time to advisors, program chairs, and the campus student affairs officer. When the resolution of matters does not occur through informal channels, students in the program may consult the TCSPP Complaint Policy or Grievance Policy found in the Academic Catalog & Student Handbook most recently published on the TCSPP website (http://www.thechicagoschool.edu/Home) to determine which process is applicable to the circumstance.

LFCC catalog YOUR FUTURE. OUR FOCUS.

The Associate in Arts and Sciences Degrees (AA&S) offered by Lord Fairfax Community College provide freshman and sophomore level coursework towards the completion of a baccalaureate degree. The AA&S degree programs require students to take essentially the same courses as required by their university/four-year college counterparts in the areas of mathematics, English, science, humanities, social science, and health/physical education. To help facilitate the transfer process, each state supported college and most private colleges in Virginia produce a “Virginia Community College Transfer Guide.” These transfer guides provide spe- cific information about the transferability of courses and/or programs to their respective institutions. Transfer guides can be obtained directly from the college of interest or can be referenced in the Student Success office of both the Middletown and Fauquier Campuses. Students may also download many Virginia transfer guides online at the following address: http://www.vccs.edu/vccsasr/vccstran.htm. Students should begin preparing for transfer as early as possible. Steps in this process include making a career decision, identifying colleges which offer the intended program of study, examining available transfer guides and college catalogs, talking with transfer representatives, identifying program prereq- uisites, researching the academic competitiveness of the institutions and programs under consideration, attending open house events offered by the colleges, and exploring financial aid and housing opportunities.

Graduate Student Handbook

Graduate Student Handbook

When a degree-seeking Brock School of Business graduate student wishes to take courses at another school to apply towards their Samford degree, they must complete a transient credit enrollment request form for permission to be a transient student at another AACSB accredited institution. Transient credits are generally allowed when the course is not offered at Samford. Students may petition to take up to 6 graduate credits at another institution as a transient student and have the credits transfer. Professional Accountancy students may only take 3 graduate credits at another institution. These credits count towards the maximum of nine or six credits allowed as transfer credits. Such petitions are considered on a case by case basis. Students must be in good academic standing, i.e., have a GPA of 3.0 or better to be eligible for transient work. Grades earned at other institutions are not included in the Samford University GPA computation. Students must earn a B (3.0) or better in the transient course for credits to be eligible for transfer.

GRADUATE STUDENT HANDBOOK

GRADUATE STUDENT HANDBOOK

The Department’s Graduate Coordinator assigns all new graduate students to a temporary academic advisor, based on the student’s transcript and stated interest areas. This academic advisor assists in planning for the first year’s courses (fall, spring, and summer), and also serves as a mentor to the student relative to curriculum matters and career choices. In addition, the student’s teaching activities are also monitored by a faculty member, typically the official course coordinator. In this way, feedback concerning effective teaching strategies is provided as well as advice about handling potential classroom problems. Each spring semester, new graduate students are required to attend a seminar in which faculty members from the department present their research interests and possible topics for master’s projects. M.S. students select their advisor and their master’s committee by the end of the second semester in the program, at which time the GS2 (plan of study) is filed with the Graduate school. The student’s M.S. committee is comprised of three faculty members (including their advisor), with at least two of the three members selected from the Department of Mathematical Sciences. The faculty advisor also serves as mentor for the student’s teaching activities during the second year. Classroom visits are scheduled and an on-line teaching evaluation form is submitted by the advisor after each visit.

The Graduate School will participate in the University’s effort to restrict the use of Continuous Enrollment to its original purpose, namely, to accommodate students temporarily who have essentially completed their degree programs and need to remain enrolled for administrative purposes in order to graduate. Continuous Enrollment (AKA “non-resident” enrollment) will be granted to a student who is prepared to defend a thesis or dissertation, but whose committee is unable to schedule the defense in advance of the degree deadline for that term. This and other such circumstances beyond the student’s control will be considered through a petition form posted to the GSAS web site (http://gsas.virginia.edu/enrolled-students).

Graduate Student Handbook

A thesis must be prepared in accordance with the guidelines (see “Instructions for the Preparation and Depositing of Master’s Theses and Doctoral Dissertations” of the Graduate College). A successful oral defense of the thesis before the student’s committee is a degree requirement. Copies of the thesis must be submitted to the Thesis Committee members at least one week prior to the oral defense. The oral examination will start with a formal presentation (20-30 minutes) by the student, followed by questions from the members of the thesis committee and members of the audience. The entire examination may not exceed 2 hours. At its completion, both the student and audience will be excused from the room, and the thesis committee will deliberate as to the merits of both the written thesis and the oral defense. The results of this deliberation will initially be communicated directly to the student by the committee, and subsequently in written form by the advisor, with copies to the Graduate Program Director and Graduate Studies Office. Required revisions to the thesis should be conveyed to the student in writing [use appropriate thesis examination form]. The student’s advisor will suggest the final grade for research, which must be approved by the committee. The committee will also determine, based on the performance at the oral defense, whether the student will be recommended to proceed towards the PhD degree. The Committee may also recommend a date (not to exceed six months from the date of defense) for the submission of the final copies of the thesis. All recommendations from the thesis committee should be conveyed to the Graduate Director in writing (use relevant form) by the advisor within a time period of 1 week from the date of the defense. The thesis advisor must assure that the student makes the recommended changes to the thesis before the final copies are submitted. The student should make the required changes and submit the final thesis within a reasonable period of time. The committee’s recommendation, for continuation to the PhD degree, may be voided by the Graduate Studies Director, in cases where the student has unreasonably delayed his/her MS graduation, after the thesis defense.
