Student Complaint Procedures

First, students should take problems or questions to the instructor, staff member, or office area in which they are experiencing problems. Most issues can be resolved at that level.

Academic Complaint Grade Related

Under most circumstances, grade changes can be made only by the faculty of record. A student is entitled to a review and explanation of the grading process and the grade received. A grade is the primary prerogative and responsibility of the faculty member and any review as the result of a complaint is intended to ensure accuracy, fairness and adherence to Kilgore College policy. The following steps will be followed in an effort to reconcile a grade dispute:
 

Individual Assignment Grades:

1. The student will discuss an individual assignment grade dispute occurring during the semester with the faculty member involved within three
(3) business days after the dispute arises.
2. If the student and faculty member are unable to resolve the dispute, the student may present the case in writing on a student complaint form to
the department chair/program director within three working days of the meeting with the faculty member. The form must have been signed by
the faculty member.
3. The department chair will render a decision within three (3) business days after receipt of the complaint form.
4. If the grade dispute is not resolved, the student may appeal the decision to the appropriate dean by submitting the written complaint form
within three (3) business days of the meeting with the department chair that includes the department chair's signature. The dean will respond
in writing within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written complaint. The dean's decision is final.
5. At each level there will be an effort to notify the student of the decision by phone to ensure that the process can be completed in the least
possible time.

Semester Grades:

1. Should a student desire to protest a semester grade, the student will discuss the dispute with the faculty member involved within five (5) days
of the next regular semester.
2. If the student and faculty member are unable to resolve the dispute, the student may present the case in writing on a student complaint form,
with the faculty member's signature, to the department chair/program director within three (3) working days of the meeting with the faculty
member.
3. The department chair will render a decision within three (3) business days after receipt of the complaint form.

written complaint form within three (3) business days of the meeting with the department chair that includes the department chair's signature.
The dean will respond in writing within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written complaint.
5. In a semester grade dispute, the decision of the dean may be appealed to the Vice President of Instruction by submitting the complaint form to
the VPI with the dean's signature added. The Vice President of Instruction will notify the student of the decision which is final.

NOTE: In the event that the instructional division dean is the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the Vice President of Instruction, following the procedures above. Should the Vice President of Instruction be the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the President of the College, following the procedures above.

Academic Complaints  -  Not Grade-Related

The following steps will be followed in an effort to resolve academic complaints not related to disputed grades; e.g., removal from a class, dismissal or suspension from a department, denial of privileges associated with a class or department, classroom dishonesty, etc.

1. The student will discuss the matter with the faculty member involved within three (3) business days of the incident precipitating the complaint. 2. If the complaint is not resolved, the student will provide a written complaint form with the faculty member's signature, to the department
chair/program director within three (3) business days of the meeting with the faculty member.
3. The faculty member will respond in writing to the department chair within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written
complaint.
4. The department chair will render a decision within three (3) business days after receipt of the complaint form.
5. If the complaint is not resolved to the student's satisfaction, the student may appeal the decision to the appropriate dean by submitting the
written complaint form within three (3) business days of the first meeting that includes the department chair's response and signature. The
dean will respond in writing within three (3) business days upon receiving the student's written complaint.
6. In a non-grade related academic complaint, the decision of the dean may be appealed to the Vice President of Instruction by submitting the
complaint form to the VPI with the dean's signature added. The Vice President of Instruction will notify the student of the decision which is
final.

NOTE: In the event that the instructional division dean is the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the Vice President of Instruction, following the procedures above. Should the Vice President of Instruction be the instructor of record, the dispute will proceed to the President of the College, following the procedures above.

In all instances of student complaints, efforts will be made to minimize the amount of time from one step to the next in the interest of resolving the issue as quickly as possible.

Non-Academic Complaints not Involving Disciplinary Sanctions

The following steps shall be followed to resolve non-academic complaints that do not involve disciplinary sanctions arising from violations of college policy, procedures or the student code of conduct:
1. The student should attempt to resolve the problem with the individual concerned within one week after the occurrence of the event giving rise to the complaint.
2. If the resolution is satisfactory, no further action is required. If the attempt at resolution is not satisfactory, the student may proceed as follows:
a. Within three (3) business days after the date of the decision that the attempt to reach resolution has not been satisfactory, the student shall submit a complaint in writing to the immediate supervisor of the employee concerned; or, if a student organization or another student
is involved, to the organization's sponsor or other appropriate authority. The vice president of student development's office will assist in identifying the appropriate authority to which complaints shall be directed.
b. The supervisor or appropriate authority has three (3) business days to investigate the circumstances and to reach his or her findings and conclusions and communicate these to the student. The original complaint form, signed and dated by the supervisor, will be returned to the student.
c. If the student does not agree with the decision of the supervisor or appropriate authority, the student may appeal to the Vice President of Student Development by filing a written appeal form with any necessary documentation attached. This step must be completed within three (3) business days of receiving the decision from the supervisor or appropriate authority. The Vice President of Student Development will review the appeal for matters of policy and procedure
only. Students, who take classes at KC-Longview, may direct non-instructional matters to the Executive Dean of KC-Longview.  The decision of the Vice President of Student Development or the Executive Dean of KC-Longview is final and concludes the appeals process.

Non-Academic Complaints Involving Disciplinary Sanctions

The following steps shall be followed to resolve non-academic complaints that involve disciplinary sanctions arising from violations of college policy, procedures or the student code of conduct:
1. The student should attempt to resolve the problem with the individual concerned within three days after the occurrence of the event giving rise to the complaint.
2. If the resolution is satisfactory, no further action is required. If the attempt at resolution is not satisfactory, the student may proceed as follows:
a. Within three (3) business days after the date of the decision that the attempt to reach resolution has not been satisfactory, the student shall submit a complaint in writing to the immediate supervisor of the employee concerned; or, if a student organization or another student is
involved, to the organization's sponsor or other appropriate authority. The vice president of student development's office will assist in identifying the appropriate authority to which complaints shall be directed.
b. The supervisor or appropriate authority has three (3) business days to investigate the circumstances and to reach his or her findings and conclusions and communicate these to the student. The original complaint form, signed and dated by the supervisor, will be returned with
the written response.

a. The established procedures were not followed in a significant way and as a result, the factual findings, the sanction, or both, were
not correct.
b. The severity of the sanction imposed was not appropriate based on the nature of the violation or the circumstances. In cases in which a charged student has accepted responsibility, such appeals are limited to having the severity of the sanction reviewed.
c. There is new information that would have been material to the outcome, had the information been presented at an earlier administrative review. The new information must be included with the student's request for appeal. Also, the student must show that the new information was not known to the person appealing at the time of the original administrative review. This step must be completed within three (3) business days of receiving the decision from the supervisor or appropriate authority. The Disciplinary Appeals Committee will review the appeal for matters of procedure and evidence only. The decision of the Disciplinary Appeals Committee is final and concludes the appeals process.

Note: Under certain circumstances students may not be allowed to continue in class until the dispute or complaint is resolved. In the event that the Vice President of Student Development is the subject of the complaint, the dispute will proceed to the Director of Human Resources, following the procedures above.

Grievances Concerning Discrimination and/or Harassment

KILGORE COLLEGE PARKING & TRAFFIC RULES AND REGULATIONS

INTRODUCTION

The control of traffic on campus is a necessary part of the efficient operation of the College. All members of the College community are urged to familiarize themselves with these regulations and to cooperate in respecting them.

The policies and regulations contained herein are given the effect of law by Senate Bill 162, 60th Legislature, 1967, of which Section 2 is quoted in part below:

Kilgore College is a "Parking by Permit Only" campus.

All faculty/staff, students, and visitors who park on college property must have a valid Kilgore College issued parking permit or temporary parking permit.

The college assumes no liability and/or responsibility for damage to or theft of any vehicle parked or driven on campus. The college assumes no responsibility or any duty to protect any vehicle or its contents at any time the vehicle is operated or parked on the campus. No bailment is created by granting any parking or operating privileges regarding a vehicle on any property owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by the college.

SECTION F - Temporary parking permits are issued to campus visitors who temporarily utilize a vehicle not registered with Kilgore College.

SECTION G - Between the hours of 5:00pm and 11:00pm, Student and Resident drivers may park in the Employee parking areas.

SECTION A - Visitors are required to register the motor vehicle that is to be operated on the premises of Kilgore College. Visitors must obey traffic and parking regulations as a condition of remaining on the premises of the College.

ARTICLE 9: PERMIT ASSIGNMENT AND ENFORCEMENT

Traffic and parking regulations are enforced whenever Kilgore College Police officers are present on campus and on duty. The purchase or issuance of a motor vehicle registration permit does not guarantee a parking space on the premises of Kilgore College, nor does the absence of a parking space or inclement weather constitute a valid justification for violation of traffic and parking regulations. The mere fact that citations are not issued for an offense does not indicate that the regulations have been modified excluding that offense.

ARTICLE 10: SPECIAL OCCASIONS AND EMERGENCIES

Special Admission Options

Early Admissions/Dual Credit. Students who exhibit exceptional academic ability may apply for admission to KC and take college courses while completing high school according to the following policy. All students who attend KC prior to high school graduation are considered dual credit students.

  • To be eligible for enrollment in dual credit courses, students normally have at least junior year high school standing at the time the course is taken and demonstrate appropriate college readiness for the courses that are taken. Exception: Younger students who demonstrate outstanding academic performance and show college readiness may be recommended by their high school and individually approved by the Vice President of Instruction.
  • High school students are generally limited to no more than two courses per semester. Exception: Students who have met the required minimum scores in reading, writing, and math may enroll in three dual credit courses during the fall or spring semesters (students wishing to enroll in more than three courses require permission from the high school principal and the KC VP of Instruction). In a standard summer term, a student may enroll in a maximum of two courses. Students may enroll in only one mini-term course at a time.
  • Students taking dual credit courses for the first time after their junior year must meet the minimum ACT, SAT, STAAR End-of-Course (English III and Algebra II), or TSI Assessment scores in the sections(s) of the test relevant to the course(s) in which they wish to enroll.

Students who have not graduated from an accredited public or private high school; a nontraditional secondary education course of study in a nonaccredited private school setting, including a home school; or earned a GED may be admitted conditionally on an individual approval basis at the discretion of the Registrar's Office. This category includes students whose high school diploma is not recognized by the Registrar's Office. Students admitted as Individual Approval must provide evidence of successful completion of the GED or graduation from a recognized high school during the first semester of enrollment, or future enrollment will be blocked.

  3. A financial statement proving that the applicant has sufficient resources for support during the entire period of study in the United States. (Amounts provided on the international student section of the Kilgore College website.)
  4. International transcripts should be evaluated, translated to English, and sent directly to Kilgore College's Office of New Students Relations. Kilgore College requires evaluations and translations be conducted by a National Association of Credit Evaluation Services member. http://www.naces.org/
  5. If the student has attended a school(s) in the United States, official transcript(s) must be sent directly to the Office of New Student Relations from the issuing institution.
  6. A medical record giving evidence of immunization against tetanus, diphtheria, poliomyelitis, mumps, measles, rubella, and bacterial meningitis.
  7. Kilgore College does not accept international students who are out of status in the Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).

Note: The U.S. Immigration and Naturalization Service Form I-20 will not be issued until admission procedures are completed to the satisfaction of the Office of New Student Relations. Note: KC provided English language courses to assist students in attaining the level of English proficiency needed to enroll in academic courses. International students are subject to the requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI-Assessment).

After acceptance to the college and before registration, the college requires the international student to take the Focal Skills Proficiency Tests in Listening, Reading and Writing. A student is placed in appropriate ESOL courses based on the results of this test.
During the entire period of study at KC, each international student is required to purchase health and accident medical insurance.

Health Science Programs. Health science programs have additional entrance requirements and recommend early application. Admission to the college in no way implies or guarantees entrance to the professional health science programs. Prior to making application to any professional health science program, the student should contact the health science counselor at the Counseling Center, located in the Devall Student Center at (903) 983-8184 or at www.kilgore.edu . Entrance procedures are designed to ensure fairness to each applicant. To ensure orderly and timely progress toward acceptance, progression, and completion of the desired health science program, the student is responsible for seeking advice, for knowing and meeting requirements of the health science program of interest, for enrolling in courses appropriate to that program, and for taking courses in the proper sequence.

Note: An applicant must show evidence of good physical and mental health. If accepted into a health science program, the student must submit a medical record and certification of immunizations for measles, mumps, and rubella (MMR), tetanus, and, in most cases, Hepatitis B. Updated immunizations are an integral part of health care and provide protection against these communicable diseases.
 

Auditing Courses. The Registrar's Office may grant a student permission to audit a course for special reasons. Courses involving computers, equipment, labs, clinicals, etc. also require departmental approval. Such permission gives the student only the privilege of observing and does not include submitting papers or taking tests. A student desiring to audit a course fills out an application for admission and registers in the Registrar's Office only after regular registration and on a space-available basis. Audit students are required to meet the same admissions requirements as all other students, with the exception of placement testing. Tuition and fees for auditing are the same as those fees charged for enrolling in a course for credit. The college will not refund tuition and fees paid to audit a course.

Immunizations
The college highly recommends that each student take precautionary measures by keeping inoculations current. According to the Texas Department of Health, those born in 1957 or later may not have been properly immunized. The single dose measles immunization that many received was inadequate. The classroom setting increases the chance of exposure. If a student was born after January 2, 1957, the student should see his or her physician or visit a public health clinic for proper immunization against measles (two doses of measles vaccine administered on or after the first birthday and at least 30 days apart), rubella (one dose of rubella vaccine on or after the first birthday), and mumps (one dose of mumps vaccine on or after the first birthday). The tetanus vaccine is effective for about ten years and should be boosted at ten-year intervals in combination with the diphtheria vaccine. It is common for older adults to develop tetanus because many have not received booster shots.

Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Requirement.
Bacterial Meningitis is a serious, potentially deadly disease that can progress extremely fast - so take utmost caution. It is an inflammation of the membranes that surround the brain and spinal cord. The bacteria that cause meningitis can also infect the blood. This disease strikes about 3,000 Americans each year, including 100-125 on college campuses, leading to 5-15 deaths among college students every year. There is a treatment, but those who survive may develop severe health problems or disabilities. All entering students under 22 years of age must provide documentation of receiving an initial bacterial meningitis vaccination dose or booster within the last 5 years. All new, transfer, or former students who are returning must show proof of having the vaccination at least 10 days prior to the start of the semester. Students may not register until documentation of vaccination is on file. Proof of the bacterial meningitis vaccination must be provided to the Registrar's Office (provide copies, not originals). Kilgore College will not return vaccination records submitted nor provide copies for use at other schools. Records may be mailed, faxed, or delivered in person.

Exemptions from Bacterial Meningitis Vaccination Requirement.
Students age 22 and older are exempt. A student is not required to submit evidence of receiving the vaccination against bacterial meningitis if the student, or a parent or guardian of a student, submits to the institution an affidavit or a certificate signed by a physician who is duly registered and licensed to practice medicine in the United States, in which it is stated that, in the physician's opinion, the vaccination required would be injurious to the health and well-being of the student.

The only means by which a student can object to vaccination for enrollment purposes is to use the Texas Department of State Health Services' current, official form for conscientious objection. Complete the online form at https://webds.dshs.state.tx.us/immcojc/. After entering all the requested information, print the form, sign it, date it and submit the form to the Registrar's Office before registering for courses.

Holds. All monetary holds on student accounts must be paid by cash, money order, or credit card. CHECKS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.

Tuition and Fees by Residency Classification

Residency Classification. Tuition is based on residency status and the number of semester hours in which a student enrolls. The following define the types of residency status:

  1. An in-district student is a resident of the State of Texas domiciled within the Kilgore College District composed of the school districts of Kilgore, Sabine, Gladewater, White Oak, Leverett's Chapel, Overton, and West Rusk County Consolidated.
  2. An out-of-district student is a resident of the State of Texas domiciled outside the Kilgore College District.
  3. A nonresident student is a resident outside the state of Texas, including international students.

Residency Status. The college will require the student to sign an oath of residency as part of the admission process. It is the student's responsibility to use the proper residence classification. If there is any question as to right of classification as a resident of Texas or the Kilgore College District, it is the student's obligation, prior to or at the time of registration, to raise the question with appropriate administrative officials of the college. The student should report any change in residency status to the Registrar's Office before registration. Likewise, a student classified as a nonresident will remain in that status until such time as the student has requested reclassification and the Registrar's Office has officially approved the request. For reclassification to be effective for a specific semester, the request for reclassification and any documentation must be submitted to the Registrar's Office on or before the official reporting date (ORD) of the semester. The ORD may be found in the college academic calendar or by calling the college. If inaccurate or fraudulent information is provided by the student to document residency status, the student will be held liable for repayment of any tuition/fees that were under-charged as a result of that information. The student should direct all questions concerning residency status to the Registrar's Office, located in the Devall Student Center. Phone (903) 983-8202.

Documentation of Basis for Texas Residency Status. Classification as a Texas resident requires that the student substantiate residence in Texas for the immediate twelve months preceding registration. Factors other than time in the state may affect residency classification. For example, the legal home address of a student who is dependent for income tax purposes is considered to be the address of the parent(s) claiming the student. Also, students who come to Texas for the purpose of education are ineligible to claim Texas residency for tuition purposes as long as they remain in school. A complete evaluation of individual circumstances is provided at the time of application for admission. Additional information is available from the Registrar's Office (903) 983-8202. Documents acceptable for this purpose may include, but are not limited to, an official Texas high school transcript, the employer's statement of date of employment, lease agreement, a permanent Texas driver's license (at least one year old), and a Texas voter registration.

Documentation of Basis for In-District Residency Status. All Texas residents are classified as out-of-district until sufficient information is on file to verify in-district residency. The legal home address of a student who is dependent for income tax purposes is the address of the parent/guardian claiming the student. Therefore, the residency status of a dependent student is based upon the residence of the parent/guardian. EXCEPTION: If a parent/guardian who does not claim the student for income tax purposes lives in-district, the student may be granted in-district residency (proof of parental status/guardianship and in-district residence are required). Students who are independent for income tax purposes must establish their own residence in the district. Students who are under age 24 must provide proof of independence. Documents acceptable for verifying in-district residency may include, but are not limited to, a permanent Texas driver's license, a property tax receipt, a lease agreement, and a utility bill. Additional information is available from the Registrar's Office (903) 983-8202.

Waiver for Property Ownership. The KC Board of Trustees has waived the difference between out-of-district resident rates and in-district rates for a person and his or her dependents who own residential real estate in the Kilgore College District. This waiver does not apply to dual credit students. Additional information for required documentation is available from the Registrar's Office (903) 983-8202.

Refund Policy

In order to receive a refund of tuition and fees, a student must officially drop or withdraw through the Registrar's Office. The college will refund tuition and fees for courses dropped or for withdrawal from school within the timetable published in the class schedules. Refunds will be issued in the same semester as the withdrawal. If a scheduled course fails to materialize, the college will return 100% of tuition and fees, with the exception of late and matriculation fees. A matriculation fee will be charged for students who enroll in courses and then completely withdraw from those courses for a particular semester. The college will not issue a refund to a student who does not have a clear financial record with the college.

See the current semester schedule for actual dates of check disbursements.

STUDENT SERVICES


Financial Aid
The College makes every effort to assist students with documented financial need in locating sources to help with their educational expenses. Financial aid is available for students who, without assistance, would not be able to go to college. The family and student are expected to assume a major responsibility for tuition, fees and living expenses. The role financial aid plays in paying a student's higher education exists only when there is a difference between the student's resources and the cost of education, also known as unmet need.

Students are encouraged to become familiar with the KC Financial Aid Website and Campus Connect. All financial aid information concerning required documents, status of award package, payment and aid deadlines, academic progress standing, and student acknowledgement of institutional and federal regulations will be delivered through the above institutional software programs.

ACADEMIC POLICIES

This section contains information about the general academic policies of the college. Students should review this information carefully when they enroll for courses at KC.

Academic Honesty Statement
It is the responsibility of students and faculty to help maintain scholastic integrity at the college by refusing to participate in or tolerate scholastic dishonesty. Plagiarism and other forms of academic dishonesty undermine the very purpose of the college and diminish the value of an education. Specific sanctions for academic dishonesty are outlined in the Kilgore College Student Handbook.

Civility Statement
Students are expected to assist in maintaining a classroom environment that is conducive to learning. Inappropriate or distractive classroom behavior is prohibited in order to assure that everyone has opportunity to gain from time spent in class. Should a disruptive classroom incident occur, the faculty member in charge may remove the student on either a temporary or permanent basis. Students have the right to appeal through the appropriate channels.

Service Learning
Service learning is a credit-bearing educational experience in which students participate in an organized service activity that meets identified community needs. Students reflect on the service activity, gain further understanding of course content and gain a broader understanding of the discipline. Service learning students help build a better community, and the community helps create a better informed and better prepared student. Service Learning is a rewarding opportunity for both instructors and students to grow and learn. For more information about service learning, please contact us at (903) 983-8678 or email us at servicelearning@kilgore.edu. The Service Learning office is located in the Student Support Building in rooms 111 and 112.

Access to Student Records
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords students certain rights with respect to their education records. These rights include:
1. The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the college receives a request for access.
2. The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student's privacy rights under FERPA.
3. The right to provide written consent before the college discloses personally identifiable information from the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent.
The college discloses education records without a student's prior written consent under the FERPA exception for disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the college in an administrative, supervisory, academic or research, or support staff position (including law enforcement unit personnel and health staff); contractors, volunteers, and other non-employees performing institutional services and functions; a person serving on the Board of Trustees; or a student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee, or assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibilities for the college. Upon request, the college also discloses education records without consent to officials of another school in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, is currently enrolled, or has been enrolled, as long as the records relate to the student's enrollment or transfer to the other school.
In compliance with FERPA, the college may release to the general public the following types of directory information without the written consent of the student:

1. Name, address, telephone listings
2. Date, place of birth
3. Enrollment status, such as full-time/part-time
4. Classification
5. Major field of study
6. Dates of attendance, awards received, degrees earned
7. Most recent previous educational institution attended
8. Weight and height of members of athletic teams
9. Participation in officially recognized activities and sports

By making a written request to the Registrar's Office, the student may request that this information be withheld from the public.
Students have the right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the college to comply with the requirements of FERPA. Complaints should be addressed to:
 

Family Policy Compliance Office
U.S. Department of Education
400 Maryland Avenue,
SW Washington, DC 20202-5901

As of January 3, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education's FERPA regulations expand the circumstances under which your education records and personally identifiable information (PII) contained in such records - including your Social Security Number, grades, or other private information - may be accessed without your consent. First, the U.S. Comptroller General, the U.S. Attorney General, the U.S. Secretary of Education, or state and local education authorities ("Federal and State Authorities") may allow access to your records and PII without your consent to any third party designated by a Federal or State Authority to evaluate a federal- or state-supported education program. The evaluation may relate to any program that is "principally engaged in the provision of education," such as early childhood education and job training, as well as any program that is administered by an education agency or institution. Second, Federal and State Authorities may allow access to your education records and PII without your consent to researchers performing certain types of studies, in certain cases even when we object to or do not request such research. Federal and State Authorities must obtain certain use-restriction and data security promises from the entities that they authorize to receive your PII, but the Authorities need not maintain direct control over such entities. In addition, in connection with Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems, State Authorities may collect, compile, permanently retain, and share without your consent PII from your education records, and they may track your participation in education and other programs by linking such PII to other personal information about you that they obtain from other Federal or State data sources, including workforce development, unemployment insurance, child welfare, juvenile justice, military service, and migrant student records systems.

Transcript Regulations.
The Registrar's Office issues official transcripts according to the provisions of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act. This office will not honor a transcript request without the student's signature unless the transcript is being sent to another college for educational purposes. During peak periods such as during commencement and registration, the student should make transcript requests three weeks in advance. Receiving institutions require official transcripts from each institution a student has attended, even though transfer work may be posted to the KC transcript for reference. The student must clear all financial and other obligations to the college before the college will release the transcript.

Kilgore College Permanent Record.
Each Kilgore College student enrolled in credit courses beyond the official reporting date of any semester or term establishes a permanent record. A student's permanent record may include personal and academic information.
Student permanent records are housed in the central computer system and in other permanent storage. The central computer system staff is responsible for the technological maintenance of permanent records, and the Registrar's Office staff is responsible for updates to student permanent records.

A transcript (copy) of the permanent record may be obtained from the Registrar's Office at no charge.

Student Classification
The student's classification is based on cumulative hours passed (not counting hours currently enrolled.) A student is classified as follows:

Freshman

Student who has 0-29 semester credit hours

Sophomore

Student who has 30-72 semester credit hours

Unclassified

Student who has more than 72 semester credit hours

Part-time

Student enrolled in fewer than 12 semester hours in a long semester or fewer than 6 hours in a summer term

Full-time

Student who is enrolled in a minimum of 12 semester hours in a long semester or 6 semester hours in a summer term


Note: In order to meet Federal Student Loans Program Enrollment Certification requirements at KC, any student who is enrolled in a major which has a major code of +8021 or +80212 and who is enrolled for 6-11 hours, which must include courses entitled RNSG and which relate to clinical experience as defined by the Dean of Math, Science and Health Science, will be considered as a full-time student at KC. This policy applies only to those students who have federal student loans and is only for enrollment certification for student loan requirement. The policy does not apply to any other federal or state grant program at KC.

Course Credit
Course credit is based on the semester hour unit. A typical lecture course that meets three times each week during a long semester carries three semester hours of credit while a course that meets more hours during the week or has an assigned laboratory may carry four or more hours of credit. The second digit in the course number indicates the number of semester hours that a student is granted for successfully completing that course.
 

Course Transfer
Transfer of Credit to KC. Transfer of credit from another college or university to KC involves consideration of accreditation, comparability of course work, and applicability of that course work to a KC degree program. Transfer work for students who already have a college degree, or for those not seeking a degree, may not be evaluated. The college will receive transfer credit from another college or university according to the following guidelines:

  1. Credit for courses in which a passing grade ("D" or better) has been earned may be transferred to KC from colleges and universities accredited through recognized regional accrediting associations. It is not the policy of KC to transfer credits from any institution not so accredited.
  2. The college will consider course work completed at colleges and universities outside the U.S. on an individual basis.
  3. A student attempting to transfer credit from another accredited college or university must furnish Kilgore College with an official transcript(s) prior to the end of the student's first academic term. Upon receipt of the official transcript(s), the Registrar's Office will complete a course-by-course evaluation as needed and furnish the student with a copy of the evaluation no later than the end of the first academic term in which the student is enrolled. If an official transcript(s) is not received as stated above, the student will not be allowed to re-enroll until the information is provided.
  4. Transferred coursework may be posted to a KC student transcript for reference, but transfer grades are not included in the KC grade point average calculation.
  5. Kilgore College accepts credit earned at other institutions by advanced placement examinations or through experiential learning under the same conditions as credit earned by traditional course work.

Transfer of Credit from KC to Other Colleges and Universities.
Transfer of credit from KC to other colleges and universities is usually accomplished without difficulty. It is the responsibility of the student, however, to determine prior to registration if the courses will transfer. Transfer of specific courses normally depends upon the applicability of the completed work toward a degree plan specified by the receiving college or university. Therefore, the student should plan any KC program of study to parallel, as nearly as possible, the requirements of the program at the college or university to which the student plans to transfer. A library of catalogs of most colleges and universities to which students might want to transfer is available in the counseling center. The counseling center maintains course articulation on conversion charts for many Texas institutions of higher learning. These cross-reference charts enable the students to determine the course equivalent at the college or university to which they plan to transfer. Counseling assistance is available to students who want more information about transferring to another college or university.

Note: Senior institutions treat transfer grades in various ways. While the grade "C" is usually considered minimal for transfer, the specific average required varies with the admissions policy established by the receiving institution. Some colleges and universities accept "D" grades if the student's overall grade average is "C" or better. Certain institutions require that the student repeat any course in which the student earned a "D" grade; some receive the "I" as an "F" grade.

Guarantee for Transfer Credit. If any student completes the KC Core Curriculum, any Texas college or university is required to accept it in total. KC guarantees to its Associate of Arts, Associate of Science, Associate of Arts in Teaching graduates and to other students, who have met the requirements of a 62/63-credit-hour transfer plan, the transferability of course credits to those Texas colleges or universities that cooperate in the development of KC Articulation Guides. If such courses are rejected by the college or the university, KC offers the student tuition-free alternative courses which are acceptable to the college or university.
Special conditions that apply to the guarantee are as follows:

  1. Courses must be identified by the receiving university as transferable and applicable in Kilgore College Articulation Guides dated 1991-92 or later.
  2. The catalog of the receiving institution states the total number of credits accepted in transfer, grades required, relevant grade point average, and duration of transferability.
  3. The guarantee applies to courses included in a written transfer plan that must be filed with KC. The plan includes the institution to which the student will transfer the baccalaureate major, degree sought, and the date such a decision was made.

Transfer Dispute Resolution.
Transfer disputes may arise when a lower-division course is not accepted for credit by a Texas institution of higher education. To qualify as a dispute the course(s) in question must be offered by the institution denying the credit (receiving institution), or in the case of upper-level institutions, must be published in a lower-division course accepted for fulfilling lower-level requirements. For community colleges, the course(s) must be listed in the Lower-Division Academic Course Guide Manual , and be offered at the receiving institution. Additionally, the sending institution must challenge the receiving institution's denial of credit.

The following procedures shall be followed by public institutions of higher education in the resolution of credit transfer disputes involving lower division courses:

  1. If an institution of higher education does not accept course credit earned by a student at another institution of higher education, the receiving institution shall give written notice to the student and to the sending institution that transfer of the course credit is denied.
  2. The two institutions and the student shall attempt to resolve the transfer of the course credit in accordance with Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board rules and/or its guidelines.
  3. If the transfer dispute is not resolved to the satisfaction of the student or the sending institution within 45 days after the date the student received written notice of denial, the institution whose credit is denied for transfer shall notify the Commissioner of Higher Education of the denial.
  4. The Commissioner of Higher Education or the Commissioner's designee shall make the final determination about the dispute concerning the transfer of course credit and give written notice of the determination to the involved student and institutions.

Problems that occur during the transfer process will not always be categorized as disputes, and will not follow dispute procedures and guidelines. Problems are clearly within the jurisdiction of the receiving institution.

Non-Traditional Credit
Students admitted to KC may earn academic credit for learning achieved through experiences that they have completed before enrolling. The college assesses a fee for administering examinations and a fee for posting to the transcript credit awarded.

Credit for Experience. Credit may be awarded toward completion of an Associate of Applied Science degree or a Certificate of Completion for learning achieved through experiences outside typical educational settings when it is consistent with the educational objectives of the student, the requirements of the curriculum, and the policy on granting credit for experiences. Virtually all credit granted for experience must be validated through a departmental examination. To inquire if an appropriate departmental examination is available, students seeking credit for experience should contact the appropriate division dean. In exceptional cases, as determined by the Division Dean, where credit is awarded without validation through a departmental examination, the request for credit must be supported by official and verifiable documentation. A minimum of 15 semester hours in residence must be completed before credit is posted and a degree or certificate is awarded. Generally a maximum of 24 semester credit hours may be awarded toward the Associate of Applied Science degree while a maximum of 15 credit hours may be applied toward a Certificate of Completion. The symbol "CR" (credit), rather than a grade, will be posted to a transcript. Generally, the minimum grade equivalent of "C" must be earned on an examination in order for "CR" to be awarded. Unsuccessful attempts are not recorded on the transcripts.

Credit for Experience-Kinesiology. Kilgore College may award credit for KINE 1238-Concepts of Fitness based upon completion of military basic training. Credit may be awarded for KINE 1151-Scuba Diving or KINE 1152-Advanced Scuba upon completion of an accredited scuba training course from a nationally recognized dive training agency. Documentation of the above training must be received before credit will be awarded.

KC may consider awarding of credit for documented experience in the following instances:

  1. Military training and experience
  2. Selected work experience in business and industry
  3. Professional certificates, licenses, and credentials such as FAA licenses, real estate licenses, cosmetology licenses, and other recognized credentials
  4. Learning achieved through proprietary schools, apprenticeship, or other intra-company training
  5. Learning achieved through noncredit workshops, seminars, and conferences

Credit by Examination and for Advanced Placement. Students may earn course credit by demonstrating specified achievement on nationally recognized tests offered through the College Board of New York or through KC departmental examinations. These examination options include College Board Advanced Placement examinations, subject examinations of the College Board college level examination Program ( CLEP ), and KC departmental examinations prepared, administered, and scored by KC faculty. KC administers CLEP on a regular basis. The College Board Advanced Placement examinations are offered only at selected high schools in May of each year. Additional information concerning credit by examination is available from the Registrar's Office, the Testing Center on the Kilgore campus, and the counselor's office at KC - Longview.  The following rules and conditions apply to earning credit by examination and advanced placement at KC:

  1. Credit by examination and advanced placement are available both to incoming students and students currently enrolled.
  2. KC will award credit only after the student enrolls at the college and earns 15 credit hours through classroom instruction.
  3. Scores earned on national examinations should be sent to KC. The student must notify the Registrar's Office to accept or decline the credit.
  4. The symbol "CR" (credit), rather than a grade, will be posted to a transcript.
  5. KC will not award credit by examination for courses in which a student is currently enrolled, courses which a student has previously failed, or courses which are prerequisite to courses for which the student has already earned credit.
  6. A student may earn a maximum of 24 credit hours through credit by examination. An exception to this rule exists where the college awards credit for prior education or training received in an accredited health occupations program. Additional details are provided under "Advanced Placement in Health Occupations".
  7. Credit by examination or advanced placement is not applicable toward determination of scholastic standing or academic honors. Likewise, credit hours earned through credit by examination or advanced placement will not satisfy requirements for minimum hours in residence that the student must earn at KC for a certificate of completion or a degree.
  8. The receiving college or university determines transfer of courses earned through credit by examination. KC urges the student to verify transferability with the college or university to which the student intends to transfer.

Credit-By-Examination Options

  1. College Board Advanced Placement Examinations. Potential college freshmen may earn course credit through the College Board Advanced Placement Program examinations offered at selected high schools in May of each year. Students enrolled in Advanced Placement (AP) courses or honors courses qualify for these examinations. Students who take these examinations should have the College Board forward their scores to the Registrar's Office, Kilgore College, 1100 Broadway, Kilgore, TX 75662-3204. Students will not receive test results from College Board until mid-July. AP examinations for which students may earn KC course credit include the following:

  1. Advanced Placement Options
    Advanced Placement in Health Occupations Programs. For studies completed in accredited health and medical programs at other institutions, including hospitals, the college may award credit which will apply toward completion of the Associate of Applied Science degree. Interested persons may apply to the appropriate program director by presenting documented and verifiable evidence of current certification by the controlling registry or certifying agency. The applicant must also have worked in his or her field full time a minimum of two years in the past five years. In some instances, it may be necessary that the applicant also satisfactorily pass a challenge examination administered by the college.  The number of equivalent credits awarded may not exceed the total number of credits required in the major area of the Associate of Applied Science degree being sought. The college will not post the credit hours granted to a transcript until the student has completed at least 15 semester hours of instruction at KC.
  2. Advanced Placement Without Credit. A student who wishes to enroll in an advanced course for which there is no credit by examination or departmental examination for the prerequisite courses may do so with the consent of the appropriate dean. The student must demonstrate or present documentation that he or she possesses the academic background and/or experiences to justify the advanced placement. The student will not receive credit for the prerequisite courses and no fees apply.

Non-Traditional Credit:

Credit by College Board Advanced Placement $25 posting fee
CLEP credit Test Fee + $20 proctor fee + $25 posting fee
Credit by Departmental Exam In-District Tuition & Fees
Advanced Placement in Health Occupations $25 posting fee

Explanation of Course Numbers
Courses offered follow a four-digit numbering system. The first digit generally indicates the academic level of the course (0 = institutional credit (developmental), 1 = freshman, 2 = sophomore) and, in most cases, the second digit reflects the semester-credit-hour value of the course. The third and fourth digits indicate sequences.
KC participates in the Texas Common Course Numbering System (TCCNS). Participating institutions have signed agreements accepting a standard numbering system for commonly transferred academic courses. KC advises students to seek assistance through the Counseling Center, located in the Devall Student Center, when planning transfer course work. For specific information on course equivalencies and degree requirements, students should contact the colleges or universities to which they plan to transfer.

Prerequisites
Each student is responsible for determining prerequisites for a course prior to enrollment. Prerequisites are listed in each course description in the college catalog.

Course Load
During the long semester, the normal course load is five academic courses or 15 to 17 semester hours. In addition to the normal load, students may take up to four semester hours in music-Applied (MUAP or MUSE) and kinesiology (KINE). When students earn a 2.25 grade point average (GPA) or greater during a long semester or summer term, they qualify to take a total of 6 courses or 18-20 semester hours during the following semester. The maximum course load during a summer term is 7 semester hours for each term. Students may enroll in only one mini-term course at a time. Students who are employed or who have family responsibilities are cautioned to consider carefully the course load they take. The student who is overly extended is likely to have scholastic difficulties. A good rule to remember is that two hours of preparation outside of class are necessary for each hour of time spent in class.

Grades for Course Work
Grade Reports. Grades are available at the end of each term online at www.kilgore.edu through Campus Connect.

Final Examinations. At the end of the semester in each course, there will be a comprehensive final examination, not to exceed two hours in length, at the time specified in the final examination schedule. Final examinations of flex classes will be administered on the last day of the class. Students are not permitted to take final examinations earlier than the time specified in the final examination schedule. A student who must be absent from a final examination should petition the instructor for permission to take the examination at a later date. The student will receive a grade of "I" (incomplete) for the course until the student takes the postponed examination. The student must take the examination within six weeks from the end of the semester or receive a grade of "F" for the examination. A student absent without the instructor's approval may receive an "F" on the examination unless there are extenuating circumstances as deemed by the instructor.

Grade Symbols. The college indicates grades by the following symbols:

  • A: (90-100) excellent
  • B: (80-89) above average
  • C: (70-79) fair or average
  • D: (60-69) lowest passing mark
  • F: (0-59) failing
  • I*: Incomplete
  • IP**: Incomplete Passing
  • W: Withdrawn from course
  • CR: Credit by examination and advanced placement

Certain health science programs have grading scales that differ from the above. Exceptions are explained on the appropriate program in Occupational Courses of Study.

* The instructor may assign an "I" because of student illness or other unavoidable circumstances. The student must complete work within six weeks after the end of the semester in which the grade was issued or receive a performance grade, usually an "F" for the course. To be eligible for this grade, the student must have essentially completed the course, and the work remaining should be of such nature as not to require class attendance. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with the instructor for completion of the course.

** An "IP" is only for English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses, specifically ESOL 0311, ESOL 0322, ESOL 0343 and modular math courses, MATH 0305, MATH 0307, and MATH 0309. The student re-registers for the course and receives a grade when the minimum passing score is attained. The "IP" can never revert to an "F" nor be used in computing grade point averages or academic status.

Computation of the Grade Point Average (GPA). KC utilizes the four-point system. The semester GPA is the total number of grade points earned divided by the number of semester hours attempted including developmental hours. The cumulative GPA is calculated by dividing the total number of grade points earned by the total number of semester hours attempted by the student in all terms excluding developmental hours. Semester grade symbols have the following values: A=4 points; B=3 points; C=2 points; D=1 point; F or I=0. W and IP are not included in the calculations of the GPA.

Grade Change Procedure. An individual course grade may be changed when the faculty member certifies in writing that an error was made in computing the original grade or when a student has successfully completed work to satisfy a grade of incomplete (I). The appropriate dean and Vice President of Instruction must approve the grade change. An instructor cannot change a student's grade after one calendar year from the date the grade was assigned.

Grade Appeals. A student who wishes to protest a grade earned in a course should first discuss the grade with the instructor. If no resolution is reached, the student may appeal to the appropriate dean. If no satisfactory conclusion can be reached at this level, the student may appeal to the Vice President of Instruction whose decision is final. An instructor cannot change a student's grade after one calendar year from the date the grade was assigned.

Repeating Courses. If a student repeats a course, all grades remain on the transcript, but the college counts only the highest grade in determining the overall grade point average (GPA). The college cautions the student, however, that other colleges may not follow this practice. A student planning to transfer to another college or university should check with the Admissions Office at that institution to determine the course repetition policy at the receiving institution.

A student who questions if all "repeated" courses are designated on the transcript, should check with the Registrar's Office.

Grades Used to Determine Academic Honors. The college recognizes students with high academic achievement in the following ways:

The Dean's List. The dean's list is published soon after the close of each long semester. To make this list, the student must complete 12 or more semester hours of non-developmental coursework and must have earned a grade point average (GPA) at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale for that semester.

  1. Phi Theta Kappa. Phi Theta Kappa is the international honor society for two-year colleges. The local chapter, Gamma Omicron, was established the year after KC was founded. Members are chosen on the basis of scholarship, leadership, and citizenship. Membership is by invitation only. To be eligible for membership in the local chapter, a student (a) must be regularly enrolled in the college and be in good standing, (b) take no less than 12 hours in the long semester preceding initiation OR accumulate a minimum of 12 hours over at least two full semesters as a part-time student, and (c) have no less than a 3.50 grade point average (GPA) based on a 4.00 scale in those hours. Only coursework taken at KC applies. (Developmental coursework does not apply.) To maintain active membership, a student must remain in good standing and maintain a GPA of not less than 3.25 for coursework completed at KC.
  2. Graduation with Honors. Graduates with a GPA of 3.50 or above are considered to be graduating with honors. To qualify for graduation with honors, a student must earn at KC 50 percent of the hours that apply to graduation. For determining honor graduates, the Registrar's Office will compute the grade point average (GPA) for the student's entire Kilgore college record. Transfer grades are not included in the GPA calculation. Honors graduation is designated as follows:

4.00 and all hours earned at KC: Presidential Honors

4.00: Graduation with highest honors

3.75 - 3.99: Graduation with high honors

3.50 - 3.74: Graduation with honors

This designation is noted on the student's transcript and diploma.

Course Drop Limits

Students entering college for the first time in Fall 2007 or after are subject to Senate Bill 1231 passed by the Texas Legislature in May 2007. This law limits students to a total of six drops in their entire college career in Texas public institutions, unless the courses were dropped in order to withdraw from school or for certain approved reasons. To be counted toward the total, drops must appear on the transcript and be signified by a grade of "W". Students are required to select a primary reason for withdrawing from a course at the time the course is dropped.  The following are approved reasons that do not count in the drop total:

  • personal illness
  • care of sick, injured, or needy person
  • death of family member or close friend
  • called to active military duty
  • family member or close friend called to active military duty
  • change in work schedule
  • transportation problems
  • personal/family obligations
  • withdrawal from school
  • administratively withdrawn by instructor or other college personnel

Drops from the following courses will not count in the drop total:

  • courses taken prior to high school graduation
  • developmental courses
  • lab/clinical courses that must be taken in conjunction with a lecture
  • all courses in the following departments: College Success Strategies (COLS, ORIE); English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL); Religion (RELI)

Students wishing to dispute the drop total must do so by contacting the Registrar's Office. If the dispute cannot be resolved between the student and the Registrar's Office, the student should follow the grievance procedure for non-instructional matters as defined in the Student Handbook. Reasons for dropping courses may not be changed after one calendar year from the end of the semester in which the courses were dropped.

Student-Initiated Drops and Withdrawals

  • Dropping a class is an official action whereby a student informs the Registrar's Office that the student will cease attending a class in which he or she is enrolled while remaining in at least one other course.

Drop Procedures:

  1. Visit the Registrar's Office or the KC-Longview office to request that the course be dropped.
  2. The Registrar's Office will notify the instructor that the student has dropped the course. The instructor may withdraw a student who ceases to attend class if the student does not formally withdraw in the Registrar's Office.
  3. Withdrawing from the college is an official action whereby a student informs

            the Counseling Center and the Registrar's Office that the student will cease attending all

            classes in which he or she enrolled.

Withdrawal Procedures:

  1.    Complete an official withdrawal form in the Counseling Center

and take the form to the Registrar's Office the KC-Longview office.

  1.    Meet all obligations to the college before the Registrar's Office can

complete the withdrawal process and/or issue a transcript.

  1.  It is the student's responsibility to drop or withdraw by the stated deadlines to ensure a grade of 'W'.

         "W" Grade Assigned for Dropping a Course or Withdrawing from Enrollment.

  • All course drops and/or withdrawals from enrollment, whether instructor or student initiated, shall result in a "W" if processed during designated drop periods. After that time, a performance grade will be given in each course in which the student is enrolled (A, B, C, D, F, or IP for certain courses.)
  • Documentation of all drops and withdrawals must be on file in the Registrar's Office by the end of business on each deadline date for a "W" to be assigned.
  • It is the student's responsibility to drop classes and/or withdraw from enrollment by the deadline to receive a "W".

Administrative Withdrawal of a Student

The college reserves the right to withdraw a student from one or more classes if, in the judgment of college officials, such action is deemed to be in the interest of the student and/or the college. Examples of some reasons for administrative withdrawal are failure to pay tuition and fees, failure to provide accurate information or admission credentials, failure to remove "holds" in a timely manner, excessive absences or unacceptable student behavior.

Attendance Policy
Kilgore College expects punctuality and regular class attendance. An absence is defined as a student's not being in class for any reason. An instructor may drop students when their lack of attendance prohibits them from meeting the course Student Learning Outcomes or when students accumulate excessive absences. "Excessive absences" is defined as the equivalent of two weeks instruction in a 16-week semester or no more than 12.5% of the total hours of instruction in any term. Some workforce programs may have more stringent attendance requirements; therefore, students in workforce programs should check with their instructor regarding the specific number of absences allowed.

Religious Day Absence. In accordance with Texas Education Code 51.911, a student may request and be granted an absence from classes on a religious holy day provided the student follows college procedures for seeking such authorization. Within a reasonable time after the absence, the student may make up work missed. It is the student's responsibility to make satisfactory arrangements with instructors prior to the absence or immediately following the absence. The procedure governing an absence on a religious holy day is outlined in the Kilgore College Student Handbook .

Policy for Making Up Work
Students are responsible for initiating any make up work regardless of the cause of the absence. Students absent on official college business are entitled to make up any and all missed work without any penalty attached. However, students should notify their instructors in advance of the absence and should schedule any make-up assignments before the absence.

For a student whose absence is not official college business, the individual instructor will judge if the student is eligible to make up work. In all cases, the instructor will determine the time for making up work and the nature of the make-up work. Whenever possible, students should discuss their impending absence with the instructor and schedule the "make-up work" prior to the absence.

Effective communication between students and their instructor is essential. Students are responsible for initiating such communication. If the student does not appear at the prearranged time for make-up work, the student forfeits the right for further make-up of that assignment.

back to top

Probation and Suspension
Students must meet academic standards in work completed at KC. Students who fail to meet those standards are placed on scholastic probation or scholastic suspension. Only grades earned at KC are used to determine probation or suspension status.

Scholastic Probation is a conditional permission for a student to remain in college. That status will be applied to any student who:

  • completes at least one semester, and attempts a total of at least 12 semester hours and earns less than a 2.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA);
  • or returns from scholastic suspension after "stopping out" for at least one 16-week (long) semester;
  • or is on scholastic probation and attends summer school, earning 6 or more hours with a 1.75 cumulative GPA or a 2.5 summer GPA.

A student may remain in school on probation as long as the cumulative GPA is at least 1.75 or a long semester GPA is at least 2.0. Students on scholastic probation must consult a counselor or faculty advisor before registering for another semester. Students on probation are not allowed to web register.
A student is removed from probation when the student earns a 2.0 cumulative GPA or better.

Note: A grade of "I" is calculated as an "F" until the grade is changed to a higher grade.

Scholastic Suspension is the loss of the conditional permission of a student on scholastic probation to remain in college. Suspension is for one 16-week semester and occurs when a student on probation fails to earn at least a 1.75 cumulative grade point average (GPA) or a 2.0 GPA in the most recent 16-week semester. A student on scholastic suspension may:

  • enroll in the next long semester under conditions prescribed by the Coordinator of Counseling (Dean of KC-Longview or designee, if student is enrolled at that location);
  • or attend summer school. Students earning 6 or more semester hours in the summer with a cumulative GPA of at least 1.75 or a summer GPA of 2.5 will continue on probation.

Readmission Following Scholastic Suspension. A student may be readmitted on continued scholastic probation after one long semester of scholastic suspension. Students returning from suspension must consult a counselor or faculty advisor before registering for classes. Students on suspension are not allowed to web register.

Graduation
KC offers four associate degrees: the Associate of Arts, the Associate of Arts in Teaching, the Associate of Science, and the Associate of Applied Science. In addition KC offers a Certificate of Completion for completion of prescribed occupational programs. Additional information about degrees or certificates of completion is available from the Counseling Center on the Kilgore main campus (903) 983-8206 or the counselor at KC - Longview (903) 753-2642 and (903) 983-8281 .

Catalog Designation. Students have the option of meeting graduation requirements of the current KC catalog or those requirements outlined in the KC catalog under which they entered the college (if continuously enrolled). A lapse of two long semesters dictates usage of the current catalog. Candidates for graduation must declare the catalog of choice on their degree plan.

Importance of Planning for Graduation. To ensure that the student is meeting all requirements for graduation, the student should consult a counselor early in the student's college career. Final responsibility for meeting all requirements for graduation rests with the student.

Requirements for Graduation. For Associate of Arts, the Associate of Arts in Teaching, and the Associate of Science degrees, requirements for graduation consist of (l) General Requirements for Graduation, (2) Core Curriculum Requirement and elective requirements for Graduation. The Associate of Applied Science degree and Certificates of Completion are awarded in Occupational Education programs and the graduation requirements are listed under the individual course of study for those programs.

Computer Competency Requirement for Graduation:

Computer competency is defined as the demonstrated ability to use information technology. It includes the ability to use computer applications in education and in the workplace as well as the ability to use the Internet and other information technology resources safely.

Students at Kilgore College must demonstrate computer competency in one of two ways:

  1. Earn a grade of C or higher in one of the approved computer competency courses during at Kilgore College.
  2. Achieve a score of 70 or higher on the KC Computer Competency Test. The test consists of both computer concepts and application usage.

Computer competency should be completed no later than the completion of 24 semester credit hours.

Approved Computer Competency Courses:

  • ARTC 1325 - Introduction to Computer Graphics
  • BCIS 1305 - Business Computer Applications (transfer course)
  • ITSC 1301 - Introduction to Computers
  • ITSC1309 - Integrated Software Applications I
  • POFI 1204 - Computer Fundamentals (for Cosmetology students only)
  • POFI 1301 - Computer Applications I

If the student's degree plan does not include an approved computer competency course, he or she may still choose to meet the computer competency requirement by completing one of the courses listed above as an elective or by taking the Computer Competency Test. More information about preparing for and taking the Computer Competency Test is available at www.kilgore.edu.

Transfer of Credit to KC for Graduation. Students who did not complete graduation requirements while enrolled at Kilgore College may elect to take their remaining courses at another college for transfer back to KC in order to receive a degree. A minimum of 25% of the degree requirements must be completed at Kilgore College. Students who were not enrolled at KC during the preceding academic year must meet current graduation requirements (even if different from the graduation requirements that were in place during the student's attendance at KC). Students should contact the Counseling Center prior to registering for courses at another college to determine which courses remain for completion of degree requirements. Students should also contact the KC Registrar's Office to make sure that the courses will be accepted in transfer. An official transcript must be sent directly from the other college to the KC Registrar's Office once the transfer work is completed. It is recommended that students apply for graduation during the semester in which they are completing the required courses. (See deadlines in "Application for Graduation" section).

General Requirements for Graduation. The following are the general requirements for graduation:

  1. Earn a minimum of 62 semester hours for an associate of arts or associate of science degree, 63 semester hours for the associate of arts in teaching degree or earn the required number of semester hours for an associate of applied science or a certificate of completion.
  2. Complete all course requirements for the degree or certificate sought
  3. Complete Computer Competency Requirement.
  4. Earn an overall or cumulative GPA (grade point average) of 2.0 in all courses attempted
  5. Return all properties of the college and satisfactorily settle all financial obligations to the college
  6. Complete at least 25% of semester hours from the degree sought at Kilgore College
  7. Satisfy all requirements of the Texas Success Initiative unless exemption or waiver status applies.
  8. Submit graduation application by deadline in college catalog.

Application for Graduation. Degrees and certificates are not awarded automatically. To be considered a candidate for a degree or certificate, the student must submit an application for graduation through CampusConnect on the KC website. Applications must be submitted on or before the following dates:

Fall Semester (December) Graduate: October 1

Spring Semester (May) Graduate: March 1

Summer I Semester (July) Graduate: June 15

Summer II Semester (August) Graduate: July 15

Degrees and certificates will be officially conferred when the Registrar's Office certifies that all graduation requirements have been met. In order for transfer courses to be used toward graduation, an official transcript must be on file in the Registrar's Office. A student does not have to be enrolled in KC courses during the semester that he or she makes application. If graduation requirements were completed during a prior semester, the degree or certificate will be posted to the transcript at the end of the semester in which the application for graduation is submitted (if received by above deadline).

Commencement Ceremonies. Commencement Ceremonies. KC has formal graduation exercises in December, May and August. It is generally expected that graduates will participate in the ceremony at the end of the semester in which degree requirements are completed (Summer I graduates participate in the August ceremony). Participation in the ceremony prior to completing degree requirements must be recommended by the dean of the division and approved by the registrar. Participation is ceremonial only and does not confer on a student any rights to a degree or certificate. The transcript is the official document that verifies graduation status. Transcripts may be obtained from the Registrar's Office. All diplomas are mailed no later than 4-6 weeks after the end of the semester. For additional information, contact the Registrar's Office at (903) 983-8606.

Certificate of Completion

KC offers certificates designed to meet specific needs of the community. Upon completion of a prescribed course of study with at least a 2.0 grade point average (GPA), the student receives a Certificate of Completion. Please refer to your individual degree plan for specifics.

ACADEMIC FIELDS OF STUDY

Community colleges do not require students to declare "majors," but there are suggested courses to take in preparation for a major. Students are encouraged to work closely with college counselors or advisors in choosing the proper courses in line with both their desired major and the senior institution to which they wish to transfer.

Senate Bill 148 of the 75th Texas Legislature (1997) and the subsequent legislation mandate field of study curricula. A field of study curriculum, in conjunction with the Core Curriculum, is intended to facilitate transferability of courses among Texas public colleges and universities. All public 4-year institutions are required to accept Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board (THECB) approved field of study courses in fulfillment of lower division requirements for bachelor's degrees in majors that correspond to that field of study.

In some disciplines, the student may take certain additional courses that, along with the core curriculum and field of study curriculum, will result in an associate of arts degree in that discipline. These are listed adjacent to their corresponding field of study curriculum.

Notes:

  1. COSC 1336/1436 and 1337/1437 are preparatory and sequential in nature; however, not all courses are required for the Computer Science major at all universities, but may apply to general degree requirements.
    • COSC 1336/1436 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Texas at Dallas, and Texas A&M University.
    • COSC 1337/1437 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at The University of Texas at Austin. Preparatory courses such as COSC 1336/1436 and COSC 1337/1437 will assist students that need additional background but do not apply toward the computer science major requirements.
  2. COSC 2325/2425 is not part of the Computer Science major requirements at the University of Texas at Austin or Texas A&M University, but may be applied to general degree requirements.
  3. It is recommended that students complete the math sequence, physics sequence, and computer science sequence at the same institution to reduce the likelihood of potential gaps in the curriculum.

Nursing Content Courses


NOTE: Lower-division nursing content is offered at community colleges through one of two general types of programs: Blocked or Integrated. Because of the distribution of content, it is extremely difficult to align curricula from one type of program to another. Students who desire to transfer from a program utilizing one type of program into the other type of program should be prepared to make up some content through a "bridge" course or through the repetition of some content within courses. It is recommended that a student make every effort to avoid transferring from one type of program to the other before completing the associate degree in nursing in order not to lose credit.

Lower-division nursing content courses being transferred from a blocked curriculum program to another blocked-curriculum program should be applied to the degree on a course-for-course substitution basis, in which the course transferred is applied IN LIEU OF the course at the receiving institution, even if the number of semester credit hours awarded upon the completion of the course varies between the sending and receiving institutions. The same procedure should be used when a student transfers from an integrated-curriculum program into another integrated-curriculum program.

1 Prerequisite courses to BIOL 2401/2402 or the equivalent are not required for the Field of Study Curriculum for Nursing.

The following notes address special circumstances and are also part of the field of study curriculum:

  1. Wherever possible, courses applied to fulfill field of study curriculum requirements should also be used to satisfy requirements in the general academic core curriculum. Generally, the math course, the biology or chemistry course(s), and one psychology course should be able to fulfill requirements in both curricula.
  2. Courses selected for inclusion in the field of study curriculum are those that are common to most baccalaureate nursing programs.
  3. Completion of the field of study curriculum shall not prevent a receiving institution from requiring additional courses/content for specific degree programs.
  4. Students should not be required to repeat courses that they have completed successfully.
  5. The academic courses and the unmodified WECM courses that are included in the Field of Study Curriculum for Nursing should transfer immediately upon approval of the field of study curriculum by the Coordinating Board. New WECM courses and courses that need modification should be accepted in transfer as soon as those modifications have been approved by the WECM Maintenance committee and added to the WECM inventory. Implementation of the complete field of study curriculum should not take more than one calendar year following addition of the new and modified courses to the WECM inventory. New or modified WECM courses will be initiated with entering students. Programs may allow sophomore students to continue with the previous curricula to prevent changing courses in the middle of their programs. Full implementation of new and modified WECM courses must be complete within two years after their addition to the WECM inventory.

TRANSFER COURSES BY MAJOR

The courses listed in this section by major are intended to illustrate the nature of the work required in many fields of preparation provided by four-year colleges and universities. These suggested electives are designed for students who plan to transfer. Because senior college requirements vary, students should consult the catalog of the senior college of their choice before selecting electives. The number following the academic field is the major code number.
