Academic Policy

The Academic Policies Committee would like to recommend the following changes to academic policy.

All changes are highlighted.  Deletions appear with a double strikethrough, while proposed additions appear in a red colored font.

 

Suggested Change 1:

                DELETE Academic Policy 1.35-6 (p. 43) and all accompanying references (pp. 1-2)

 

1.35-6  PRE-PROGRAMS

 

                Enrollment Services may accept students into a program, even though their review of the student's application indicates a need for additional coursework to properly prepare a student for his or her chosen course of study. These students are classified on Delhi's campus as "pre-program".  A Pre - Program acceptance may mean:  1) required developmental studies for students whose study skills, reading, English and/or math skills require strengthening; or 2) required prerequisites are lacking.  Registration in developmental courses will be determined through evaluation of the student's high school transcript in combination with the student's performance on the ASSET placement test.

 

                At the end of each semester all "pre-program" students will be re-evaluated by the appropriate academic Dean and any changes in status will be sent to the Registrar. After the completion of one academic year of study, all "pre-program" designations should be removed from a student's record.

1.35-2                    ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR GAINING COLLEGE CREDIT

 

                SUNY Delhi recognizes many paths of learning.  Alternate forms of credit may be applied to a degree or certificate at SUNY Delhi.

 

                All degree and certificate students at SUNY Delhi may earn a maximum of 50 percent of their credits using any combination of the methods listed in this section, with the exception of Earning Credits through Special Programs.

 

                Fifty percent (50%) of all credits utilized toward a degree or certificate must be completed under the direct supervision of SUNY Delhi.

 

                These criteria do not apply to Earning Credits through Special Programs (section 1.35-2, C.)

 

A.    Traditional Methods.

1.    Transfer Credit

a.         The official academic transcript of each student who has completed course work at another institution will be evaluated by the Registrar's Office to determine both the number of credits and types of courses which will successfully transfer to the college. The division deans and/or department chairs will determine the number of semester hours and appropriate course equivalents which apply directly to the student's degree program requirements and this information will be communicated in writing to the registrar and the student.

Transfer courses completed 10 years prior to a student’s anticipated matriculation date must be reviewed by the Department Chair/Division Dean.  The Chair/Dean will review prior course work to ensure course relevance and applicability to their chosen program.

                                    1.  The Associate of Applied Science level Nursing program requires that all science and math transfer credit be completed within 5 years of the students matriculation.
