History
Central Florida Junior College was established
in 1957 as a comprehensive, public, community
junior college serving the state of Florida and,
specifically, the counties of Citrus, Levy and Marion.
Instruction began in the fall of 1958 to a group of
320 students in temporary facilities at the Marion
County Vocational School. Central Florida Junior
College and Hampton Junior College merged on
July 1, 1966. Opened in the fall of 1958, Hampton
Junior College was one of the first black, two-year
colleges in the state.
To accurately reflect the character and purpose
of the college, its name was changed to Central
Florida Community College on July 1, 1971.
The Ocala Campus was established on a 60acre tract of land donated by the Atlantic Realty
and Investment Company and the City of Ocala.
The attractive, wooded complex is located on State
Road 200, west of downtown Ocala and east of
Interstate Highway 75.
In 1974, another 60-acre tract adjacent to the
western edge of the campus was added. In 1994, a
20-acre site adjacent to the southern edge of the
campus was obtained from the Marion County
School Board, and the CFCC Foundation, Inc.,
purchased a 17-acre tract immediately north of the
campus to provide a college residence facility
(College Square), and to allow for future expansion.
In 1995, renovation began on the vacated College
Park Elementary School on land adjoining the eastern side of the campus. Later that year, the Public
Service Division and Criminal Justice Institute were
moved to the newly-renovated buildings in 1996,
several Health Occupations Division programs, along
with college support operations, relocated to this site.
The CFCC University Center opened in 2002. (see
map, page 271).
The Bronson Center in Levy County opened in
January 1982 on a 20-acre site a mile and a quarter
east of Bronson on Alternate U.S. Highway 27.
The Levy County Center was relocated in
November 1993 to Chiefland. See page 14 for
more information on the Levy County Center.
The Citrus County Campus opened in the fall
of 1984 at the Lecanto Joint Use Facility.A new
free-standing campus opened in the fall of 1996,
located on 88 acres in Lecanto in central Citrus
County. With continuing growth, the college is able to
offer a variety of courses to students in Citrus County
(see page 272 for location of new facility).
CFCC s Hampton Center opened in 1996 at
the site of the former Florida State Fire College in
west Ocala. See page 14 for more information on

ADMISSION
REQUIREMENTS
Access to higher education is a concept held in
high esteem at Central Florida Community College.
While emphasizing this concept, college officials
believe that a student should view this access as
an opportunity carrying obligations which ensure
realization of their goals.
Admission for college credit studies is open to all
high school graduates. It is essential that each
applicant satisfactorily complete each phase of the
admission process. Most degree programs at
CFCC require an earned high school diploma or satisfactory completion of a high school equivalency
examination. Most postsecondary certificate programs do not require a high school diploma. A candidate for admission is assured that the application
will be reviewed and evaluated in a fair and impartial
manner. No applicant will be refused admission
on the basis of race, age, ethnic background,
religious preference, disability, or gender.
In order to maintain the college ideals of scholarship and demeanor, the right is reserved to deny
admission to applicants for any reason which is
deemed to be in the best interest of the college.
After admission, subsequent registration for
currently enrolled and former students is permitted
when all college obligations have been satisfied.
When limited facilities or programs restrict the
size of enrollment, admission to the college will be
granted in the order in which applications have
been received by the Admissions and Records
office. Exceptions to this rule, e.g. Associate in
Science Degree Nursing (ADN) and certain occupational programs, are listed elsewhere in this catalog.
Guidelines for eligibility into various programs are
found within program descriptions in the catalog.

N. A qualified beneficiary under the terms of the
Florida Pre-Paid Postsecondary Expense
Program (S.240.551, F.S.).
O. Classification as a Florida resident at another
Florida public college or university.
Appeals
The Director of Admissions and Records
will review appeals regarding the admissions
classification and will convey to the applicant the
final residency determination and the reasons.
Reclassification
It is important to understand that living in or
attending school in Florida is not sufficient
evidence to establish residency for tuition
purposes. Students must show that they were in
Florida to maintain a bona fide domicile. The
following hard copy evidence may be accepted as
evidence of establishing legal residence in Florida:
A. For independent students, if appropriate,
obtain parent/student tax returns, affidavits,
employment records, bank accounts, etc.,
and at least one document of legal residency
dated at least 12 months before the first day
of classes of the term for which legal
residency is sought. (See previous list of
acceptable evidence.)
B. For dependent students, if dependent on a
Florida resident parent/legal guardian, obtain
from parent/legal guardian:
1. Proof of dependent status, and
2. At least one document of legal residency
pertaining to the parent/legal guardian
that is dated 12 months before the first
day of classes. (See previous list of
acceptable evidence.)
C. If dependent on out-of-state parent/legal
guardian, student may be reclassified only
under rare circumstances in which the
student s age and general circumstances
warrant the reclassification (e.g., graduate
student, married, resided in Florida more
than five years). The advice of the residency
appeals officer (Director of Admissions
and Records) should be sought prior to
reclassifying a student who is dependent
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
on out-of-state parents.
D. For students seeking reclassification under
an exceptional category, hard copy
documentation appropriate to the particular
category (e.g., marriage certificate, military
orders, teaching contract, etc.) is required.
ADMISSION
AND
REGISTRATION
Appeals
The Director of Admissions and Records will

ALL APPLICANTS
Application and Application Fee
All students must submit a completed application, along with a non-refundable, one-time $20
application fee.
Hearing-impaired, dyslexic, visually-impaired,
or specific learning disability applicants are
eligible for reasonable substitution for requirements
for admission to the college, to a program of study,
or graduation. Documentation must be provided
showing that the person’s failure to meet
requirements is related to the disability. Details are

COLLEGE CREDIT DIVISION
All college credit students must be high school
graduates or GED recipients (a non-graduate of
high school who has satisfactorily completed tests
of general educational development), or qualified
Early Admission/Dual Enrollment students (see
page 24 25).
Graduates of high schools that are not
regionally accredited may be accepted on a
probationary basis for the first 12 credit hours.
Students can be admitted to credit courses
at CFCC under one or more of the following
classifications.
Degree-seeking students can earn either the
Associate in Arts (A.A.), Associate in Science (A.S.) or
Associate in Applied Science (A.A.S.).
Non-degree applicants can pursue postsecondary vocational certificate, adult enrichment or
career exploration, teacher certification, renewal

Most college credit certificate-seeking students
pursue a one-year program of study.
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
21
Transfer students are those who have previously registered at any other college, regardless of the
amount of time spent or credit earned. They can be
degree-seeking or non-degree-seeking. See special
requirements on pages 23 24.
Returning students are those who have previously applied and paid an application fee, whether
they attended or not. Although a new application
form may be required, there will be no application
fee. Students seeking to return to the A D N
(Associate in Science Degree Nursing) program
must follow procedures outlined. Veterans see
pages 45 46. Students who return to CFCC
who have not been continuously enrolled (defined
as earning one credit hour or more in one of
the three terms comprising an academic year)
will need to complete the program or academic
requirements of the current catalog in effect. Any
full- or part-time student has five calendar years
after he/she returns to complete degree requirements
under the catalog in effect when returning.
International students are those who are
residents of countries other than the United States.
They must be degree-seeking, full-time students
except in special situations where students are
required to obtain an I-20 from the institution.
Regardless of which classification is appropriate,
the student is considered either full-time (enrolled
for 12 or more credits in a regular 16-week
semester) or part-time (enrolled for fewer than 12
credits in a regular 16-week semester). Also, a
student is considered to be a freshman if 29 or
fewer credit hours have been earned, or a
sophomore if more than 29 credit hours have
been earned.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS
See page 33 for information on preadmission testing.
AUDIT Students
A student may register during the Schedule
Change Period (see calendar) for a credit course
on a no-credit (audit) basis. An audit student cannot
change to credit status. Exceptions to the audit
policy require approval of the program facilitator
and will count as an attempt. The audit policy is not
applicable to Health Occupations, Criminal Justice,
Science Labs, and college preparatory and dual
enrollment students. (see Forgiveness and
W ithdrawal policies, page 62 63).
22
CHILD CARE Students
To comply with Florida state law, Chapter
402.3055, each prospective student must be
fingerprinted and undergo a criminal background
check, reference check and tuberculosis test. The
cost of these procedures is the responsibility of the
student. Information received is confidential and is
required to determine the prospective student s
ability to work with children.
CRIMINAL JUSTICE Students
See pages 106 and 166.
DEGREE-SEEKING Students
Placement Testing:Degree-seeking applicants
to any university or community college in the Florida state system must present placement test
scores as part of the application process. CFCC
accepts any of the three tests authorized by the
state (ACT, SAT or CPT). CPT is the official placement test for
community colleges in the state of Florida. CFCC
regularly offers CPT on its campus. Placement tests
provide information about the reading, English, and
mathematics skills that are required for success in
college. By assessing ability levels in these areas,
placement tests help determine the most appropriate
English, mathematics, and reading courses students
should take. Scoring below the required cut-off
score indicates the student is not ready for collegelevel work in the specific area. Florida requires
these students to complete non-credit college
preparatory course work prior to entering college
level work in the weak areas.
New degree-seeking students may not register
for classes unless CFCC has placement test scores
on file. CPT sample test question booklets and ACT
and SAT registration packets are available at
CFCC s Ocala Campus Testing Center (Building 7,
Room 101), as well as at the Citrus County
Campus Counseling office.
Transcripts: Degree-seeking students must be
high school graduates or GED recipients and must
submit an official high school transcript or official
GED test scores. If the student is a college transfer
student, an official transcript from each college or
university previously attended must also be submitted
immediately.
INTERNATIONAL Students
CFCC is authorized by United States federal law
to enroll non-immigrant alien students, provided
they attend CFCC on a full-time basis. English
proficiency is required and all courses are taught in
the English language. CFCC now offers a full-time
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
language program to teach English as a Second Language (ESL). The courses can be found
in this catalog and are labeled EAP. We currently offer courses to specifically improve a student s skills in grammar, listening and speaking
and in writing. All ESL courses involve weekly
lab time to reinforce skills learned.
THE ADMISSIONS POLICY
The applicant must apply for admission and
submit all required admission credentials to the
International Education office no later than 90 days
prior to the first class day of the term in which he
or she seeks admission. There is a three (3) week
processing time. English language test scores
determine placement into college courses.
INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS APPLYING FOR
ADMISSION, COMPLETE THE FOLLOWING
Secondary school graduation: A foreign
student must have satisfactorily completed the
secondary school level, which would be required
for university admission in his/her own country.
1. Application and $50.00 non-refundable
application fee (U.S. dollars).
2. Transcripts and proof of graduation:
Certified high school diploma and certified
high school transcripts showing subjects
and grades earned must be provided in
English. Any translation fees are to be paid
by the
student. Transcripts from any university outside the U.S. may be provided if the student
wants to know if any of the credits will transfer to CFCC. Before the university transcript
can be submitted, it should be sent to an
agency that evaluates foreign credentials.
Please contact the International Education
Office if you are interested in more information about this.
3. TOEFL score requirement: A TOEFL score
of 420 or above on the written test or 110 or
above on the computer test is required for
admission. Only students with scores of 500
or above on the written or 173 or above on
the computer test may enroll in Academic
or college credit courses. Students scoring
between 420 and 429 on the written (or
110-172 on the computer) will be required to
enroll in ESL (English as a Second Language) courses first.
4. Financial security:Non-immigrant students
must provide evidence of financial responsibility and have sufficient funds to pay college
matriculation and tuition fees, textbook
costs, and living expenses. Financial aid is
not available to non-immigrants and
CFCC does not offer scholarships to international students. The Confidential Financial Statement and the Financial Support
Information form need to be completed.
Also, a bank letter must be included,
dated within the past three months.
All of this financial information must be
submitted before the student will be
considered for admission. A non-immigrant
student may not be employed while attending
college in the United States unless the
Immigration and Naturalization Service has
granted permission. When you request a
student packet of information, a Confidential
Financial Statement and a Financial Support
Information form will be included.
ADMISSION
AND
REGISTRATION
5. Health and Accident Insurance: International
students on F-1 or J-1 or M-1 visas must
provide proof of medical insurance in
advance of the intended term of enrollment or
secure insurance coverage through CFCC
upon arrival. This insurance coverage must
continue for the entire period of enrollment.
6. When a student is accepted for admission, a
letter of acceptance with a date for a mandatory
orientation and an I-20 will be sent.
The deadline for all required documents is 90
days before classes begin.
INTERNATIONAL E D U C ATION OFFICE
The International Education office on the Ocala
Campus is maintained to assist international
students in making the transition from their native
lands and educational systems to CFCC. The
staff will gladly assist students with immigration
regulations, health insurance, educational planning, personal problems, and any other areas of
concern.
NON-DEGREE Applicants
Non-degree applicants are persons who wish to
take selected college courses without intending to
complete an associate degree program. Many
students attend to upgrade employment skills, for
career exploration, teacher certification, audit, or
for personal objectives. A non-degree applicant
must submit a completed application and a onetime, non-refundable $20 application fee. Transient
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004

A non-degree status student cannot be certified
for financial aid or veterans benefits. If a student
wishes to pursue a degree, he or she must contact
the Enrollment Services Center and indicate a
desire to be changed to a degree-seeking status.
Non-degree-seeking students will be allowed to
register for a maximum of nine semester hours
without participating in the placement testing
program and any subsequent college preparatory
instruction. Some courses are closed to non-degreeseeking students.
SUSPENDED Students
A student who has been placed on academic
suspension and is ineligible to return to CFCC or
the previous institution attended must file a petition
for admission to CFCC. The student must schedule
a return from suspension appointment with a
counselor or advisor. See page 44 for petitions
information.
TRANSFER Students
Transfer students must be eligible to return to
the last institution attended for admission to CFCC
through regular procedures. Those who have been
suspended from another institution or who have a
24
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
20 or more grade point deficit are required to file a
petition for admission (see page 44 for petitions
information). Students entering with a grade point
deficit of 1 19 will be on academic probation.
Students are strongly advised to have all (an
official copy from each institution) transcripts sent
to the Admissions and Records office at the time
they apply to the college. A high school transcript
or proof of GED is also required. Failure to have all
transcripts on file will prohibit the student from
registering the following semester.
CFCC does not ordinarily accept transfer credits
from institutions not accredited by a regional
accrediting agency. However, each transcript will
be considered on an individual basis. The coursework accepted must represent collegiate coursework
relevant to the degree, with course content and
level of instruction resulting in student competencies
at least equivalent to those of students enrolled in
CFCC s degree programs. Students must submit to
the Admissions and Records office, in a timely
fashion prior to the end of their first term of
enrollment, official transcripts from all previouslyattended colleges and universities. The Admissions
and Records office will evaluate these transcripts
and mail the student a printout prior to the end of
the first enrollment term, indicating the accepted
transfer courses. Any questions regarding transcript
evaluation must be resolved with the Admissions
and Records office during the term in which the
transcripts are evaluated.
Transfer students who do not have transcripts
on file showing completion of college prep or college
level English and math will be required to take a
placement test. Students may be subject to
additional fees if the transcript evaluation indicates
that students had previously registered in a course
that they are now repeating.
In Associate in Science degree programs, only
courses applicable to the program are acceptable
for transfer. Students seeking the Associate in
Science degree who possess an Associate in Arts
or higher degree have already satisfied core
requirements as listed on page 49.
In Associate in Arts degree programs, all
academic work (1000- and 2000-level) transfers.
Upper division courses (3000- and 4000-level) do
not transfer. In cases where the content is the
same, the burden of proof is on the student.
Following evaluation of transcripts, a printout
showing courses transferred will be mailed to
the student. Any questions regarding the
evaluation must be resolved during the term in
which the work is evaluated by contacting the
Admissions office.
ACCELERATION
MECHANISMS
ADMISSION
AND
REGISTRATION
College credit may be awarded for prior learning
opportunities and/or acceptable scores through
Advanced Placement (AP), College Level
Examination Program (CLEP), or International
Baccalaureate (IB). Students may not receive credit
by examination for courses in areas where they
have received college credit for more advanced
work. CLEP,A P, or IB credits may not be applied
toward grade forgiveness. Students with official
transcripts of credit earned outside a regionally
accredited classroom, issued directly to the college
from the program in question, may be awarded up
to a maximum of 45 semester hours of credit.
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004

Advanced Placement (AP)
It is the policy of Central Florida Community
College (CFCC) to grant college credit to a student
who presents a score of 3, 4 or 5 on one or more
of the advanced placement program examinations
of the College Entrance Examination Board. To be
eligible for credit, the examination must be taken
prior to enrollment in college.
A P credit granted by Central Florida Community
College may be transferable to participating Florida
institutions of higher education. It is the responsibility
of the student to contact the institution to which
he/she expects to transfer to determine the acceptability of this credit. CFCC follows the guidelines in
Florida State Board Rule 6A-10.024(8) for awarding

Dual Enrollment
The State Board of Education encourages
colleges and school boards to enter into agreements to offer college courses to selected high
school students who have exhausted their school s
curriculum and qualify for dual enrollment status.
As provided for by current legislation, colleges may
waive the student s application, tuition and applicable
fees. CFCC has such agreements with Citrus, Levy
and Marion public school districts. Students who
feel they might qualify for the dual enrollment
classes should discuss this possibility with their
high school counselors. High school students can
take dual enrollment courses on some high school
campuses and on the college campus.

subsidiary-level subjects with scores of 4 or above,
up to a maximum of 30 semester hours. For those
students who have the IB Certificate only, college
credit will be awarded for higher-level subjects with
scores of 5 or above. CFCC follows the guidelines
in Florida State Board Rule 6A-10.024(9) for
awarding IB credits.
Experiential Learning
The experiential learning assessment process is
designed to recognize the academic value of learning
through experiences including work experience,
employment-related training programs, seminars,
volunteer work, travel, military service or selfdirected study.
Assessment: Assessment involves the following:
W ritten or performance tests.
Preparation of a portfolio describing learning
and how it was acquired.
Evaluation of certificates and licenses.
Interviews with faculty members.
Review of external agency recommendations.
The program area responsible for the courses
for which credit is requested determines the
method of assessment and the amount of credit
awarded. Not all courses are assessable courses.
Courses being assessed must be offered as a
requirement or an elective in an A.S. or A.A.S.
degree or certificate program at CFCC. General
education courses are not assessable.
Process: After being admitted to the college and
selecting a program with the help of a counselor or
advisor, the student must:
1. Meet with the appropriate program representative to determine if an assessment process
is available for selected courses.
2. Apply for assessment on forms available
from the department or student affairs.
3. Consult with the department, program manager
or designated faculty evaluator to determine
requirements for assessment and fees
required.
4. Discuss student responsibilities in the
assessment process, including:
Meeting with an instructor for an oral or
written exam
Preparing for a written exam by reviewing
textbooks
Arranging for an instructor to interview an
employer, as well as a work site visit
Presenting certificates and licenses for
authentication
Developing a portfolio of experience
Providing ACE recommendations for
military training.
5. Pay necessary fees for assessment. It is
possible that academic credit will not be
awarded as requested, but the cost of
assessment remains the same.
Award of Credit: Depending on the amount of
credit requested and the methods of assessment
required, the assessment process time may vary.
When the process is completed, the results are forwarded to the appropriate dean for final review and
verification. The dean will request, by memo, that
the Director of Admissions and Records post any
awarded credits to the transcript. Credits awarded
are held in escrow until the student satisfactorily
completes 25% of program coursework (15 credits
for the A.A.) at CFCC. Experiential credit may not

ADMISSION
AND
REGISTRATION
27
be used to meet the residency requirement of 25% of program course work required at CFCC for graduation.
This type of credit may not be acceptable for transfer to other institutions. The receiving institution would determine transferability.
College-Level Examination Program (CLEP)
Students may earn a maximum of 21 credit hours from the following general examinations:
natural sciences, mathematics, humanities, social sciences and history.Additional credits may be earned
through various subject examinations. CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy any General Education
course that is also Gordon Rule
(regardless of degree program) except math. If a CLEP exam is taken for one of these courses (such as
Psychology), students may use the credit as elective credit only. CLEP will still be accepted for math and
science in the General Education areas.
Some colleges and universities do not allow credit for this program. It is the responsibility of the student
to contact the institution to which he/she expects to transfer to determine the acceptability of this credit.
CFCC follows the guidelines in Florida State Board Rule 6A-10.024(7) for awarding CLEP credits.
Students receiving credit via CLEP for courses which have Gordon Rule writing requirements assigned to
them as outlined in 6A-10:30, must fulfill the writing requirement and may be required to take additional courses.
When a student completes ENC 1102 with a grade of A or B, the college will certify the
12,000-word requirement in the Communications and Fine Arts Division toward the Gordon Rule to that student awarded six hours CLEP credit in
English (general college composition or freshman English). Students presenting CLEP exam scores to CFCC
are required to validate these credits by earning at least nine credit hours in residence at CFCC.
Any student who has satisfied CLEP requirements in mathematics and whose high school
transcript shows successful completion of higher mathematics course work, including college algebra,
trigonometry, and calculus, shall exempt the mathematics requirement.
Beginning July 1, 2002 the following are acceptable test scores.
Below are acceptable test scores prior to June 30, 2002.

DANTES Subject
Standardized Tests (DSST)
The DANTES Subject Standardized Tests
(DSSTs), unlike Advanced Placement, are not built
around curriculum, but rather are designed to test
students knowledge on a variety of college-level
subjects, regardless of where they may have
learned the material. Exams are developed by
committees of college faculty. Norming forms of
DSSTs are administered to college-level students
who are completing courses for credit in various
subjects. All DANTES tests listed are accepted at
Saint Leo University, some as elective and some
for specific class credit. Pre-approval must be
obtained for CFCC credit via DANTES testing.
More information about DSSTs, including descriptions of test content and sample examination questions
is available at

THE LEARNING THEME
AT CFCC
In 2002-03, Central Florida Community College
inaugurated an institution-wide learning theme,
Integrity: A Value of Community.The learning
theme study promotes connections among the
segments of the CFCC community-students, faculty,staff, administration and with the larger community of which it is a part.
In exploring an annual theme, the college family
becomes more involved in the holistic nature of
learning, developing an awareness of learning
across the curriculum and experiencing first-hand
that knowledge and insight cross departmental
barriers. Involving students in a learning theme
also has the benefit of implementing many of the
Institutional Learning Outcomes including
Communication, Critical Thinking and Problem
Solving, Technical Skills, Math, Interpersonal Skills,
and Self-Direction. Students and staff read a book
in common and organize classroom and campus
events around questions related to the theme.
The themes for the first four years are based
on defining the four values in the college vision
statement integrity, service, responsibility and
dignity -and determining what these mean to the
CFCC learning community. Service is the theme
for 2003-2004, Responsibility for 2004-2005, and
Dignity for 2005-2006.
FOCUS: STUDENT
DEVELOPMENT
LEARNING OUTCOMES
Major College Direction #1: To provide learning
opportunities which meet students lifelong learning
needs.
Major College Direction #2: To provide a
caring environment which supports learning and
development.
In response to these two Major Directions,
Central Florida Community College has become a
student-centered learning institution that provides
opportunities for students to pursue lifelong learning
experiences. CFCC has developed a new learning
initiative that will be introduced for the 2003 2004
academic year.This learning initiative has 3 major
components that are designed to empower students
with the skills and tools that will enable them to
begin a journey toward lifelong learning.
40
Learning Outcomes
CFCC has identified six major student
development learning objectives and competencies
that describe the student development learning
outcomes for a CFCC graduate. These learning
outcomes can be applied in academic, employment, social and community contexts and must be
crafted over a lifetime. These learning outcomes
and
competencies enable students to set learning
goals and assess learning within and across
academic disciplines and the disciplines of human
inquiry and development.
.
I Student Development Learning Outcomes:
The Student Development Learning Outcomes
are to assist students in the development of:
Communication skills
Self direction and self exploration skills
Critical thinking and problem solving skills
Interpersonal skills

REQUIREMENTS
G E N E R A L E D U C ATION CORE
A Statement of Purpose
The CFCC general education core consists of
the following components: communications, social
sciences, natural science, humanities and
mathematics. In addition, students are expected to
complete college advisement/orientation and to
achieve skills in basic computer use. The purpose
of the general education program is to expose the
student to a diversity of disciplines to provide for:
a. Minimum level of cultural literacy.
b. Foundation for advanced study.
c. Inquiry and scholarship through the
improvement of basic and critical
thinking skills.
d. Increased knowledge and appreciation of
human experiences and achievements in
the arts and sciences.
e. Better understanding of individuals and their
cultures, both in America and abroad.
COMMON CORE PROGRAM
Successful completion of the common core
program is required of ALL degree recipients. The
program includes these courses:
ENC 1101 Freshman Composition Skills I
ISS 1010 Introduction to the Social Sciences or
WOH 1012 World Civilizations I or
WOH 1022 World Civilizations II
HUM 1021 Introduction to the Humanities or
HUM 1210 Introduction to the Humanities:
To the Renaissance or
HUM 1230 Introduction to the Humanities:
Since the Renaissance or
HUM 1021H Honors Introduction to the
Humanities
Any approved mathematics course beyond
college preparatory level.
Any biological or physical science course.
Three credit hours of a wellness course (HLP
1081) required of certain programs.
Basic knowledge of computers must be demonstrated in the appropriate courses.
A course addressing competency in oral
communication is included in all degree programs.
COLLEGE PREPA R ATO RY P R O G R A M
The college preparatory program is oriented
toward individual differences in students, rather
than to academic conformity to the subject matter.
It was developed on the premise that the student in
this program will need simultaneous assistance in
basic academic skills (reading, mathematics,
grammar and composition), personal enrichment,
and adjustment to self and society.The program
provides this assistance through college preparatory
courses drawn from the areas of English, reading,
and mathematics, as well as through individualized
clinics in counseling and communications.
All new college preparatory students are
assigned college preparatory classes as indicated
by placement scores. The three areas of college
preparatory instruction are mathematics, English
(writing), and reading. Students who are assigned
college prep instruction may take a limited number
of college-level courses in each curriculum area
as follows:
ACADEMIC
INFORMATION
A. A student assigned to college prep
mathematics may not register for any
college-level mathematics course until the
college prep requirement in mathematics is
successfully completed. Additionally, no
course with a math prerequisite or corequisite
may be taken.
B. A student assigned to college prep English
or reading may not register for college-level
English (ENC 1101, Freshman Composition
Skills I) until the college prep requirement
has been successfully completed. In addition,
no course which has ENC 1101 as a prerequisite or corequisite may be taken.
C. A student assigned to college prep reading
may not take any college-level reading
course or ENC 1101 until the college prep
requirement has been successfully completed.
In addition, no course which has ENC 1101 as
a prerequisite or corequisite may be taken.
D. ENC 0001C and ENC 0010C (college prep
English) and REA 0001C and REA 0002C
(college prep reading) form the second or
advanced level in the ESL (English as a
Second Language) program. A student
participating in the ESL program may not
take college level courses, except as noted
in item B above.
All students required to enroll in a college
preparatory course may elect to seek an alternative
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
49
source for remedial instruction. The alternatives
may include but not be limited to a private provider,
Continuing Education, or the Learning Support
Center.A student who opts for an alternative
method of instruction is entitled to enroll in up to 12
credits of college-level courses in skill areas other
than those for which the student is being remediated. After 12 hours of enrollment, a student is prohibited from enrolling in additional college-level
courses until the student scores above the cutscore on all sections of the common placement
test (CPT).
Students enrolled in college preparatory course
work may sit for the common placement test (CPT)
once every 30 days, after the completion of their
current term of enrollment or at any time between
terms. Students who attain scores that qualify for
entry into regular college credit courses will be
allowed to register for such courses their subsequent
term of enrollment at CFCC.
Students are required to present passing scores
on a common placement test to show that basic
computation and/or communication skills have
been met.
State law, House Bill 1545, requires CFCC to
charge full cost of instruction on the third attempt of
a college preparatory course taken at CFCC, since
fall 1997, in English, reading, or mathematics. However, due to financial hardship and/or extenuating
circumstances, a student may be able to qualify for
an exception to the increased fee. An exception
based on extenuating circumstances may be used
only once for each course.

Computer Skills
Basic computer skills are attained in regular
course work. However, entering students are
strongly encouraged to acquire basic computer
skills by taking a computer course such as CGS
1100 Microcomputer Applications. This course
may be a required prerequisite for some
university programs.
College Preparatory
Any college preparatory courses needed by the
student are entered as non-transferable electives
and cannot be used to meet the 60-hour graduation requirement.
Students must continually enroll in required
preparatory courses until all requirements are completed.
Associate in Arts
Transfer Guarantees
Community college Associate in Arts graduates
are guaranteed certain rights under the statewide
articulation agreement (Rule 6A-10.024). The
articulation agreement governs the transfer of
students from Florida public community colleges
into the State University System.The agreement
addresses GENERAL ADMISSION to the State
University System and PROGRAM ADMISSION
to selected programs at a university.
General Admission
Guarantees:
The articulation agreement designates the
Associate in Arts degree as the transfer degree.
In doing so, the agreement guarantees that:
ACADEMIC
INFORMATION
A. Community college A.A. degree holders will
be granted admission to a university within
the State University System, but not necessarily to the university or program of choice.
B. Upon transferring to a state university,A.A.
degree graduates will be awarded 60 credit
hours toward the baccalaureate degree.
C. Generally, the university catalog in effect the
year the A.A. degree student first enrolled at
the community college will remain in effect
for the student s entire program, provided
the student maintains continuous enrollment
as defined in that catalog and completes the
program within the university s specified
time frame. Note: Certain changes in law
may affect the catalog.
D. Once a student has completed the general
education requirements and this is so noted
on the transcript, regardless of whether an
A.A. degree is awarded, no other state
university or community college to which the
student may transfer can require additional
courses to the general education requirements.
E. When transferring among institutions participating in the Statewide Course Numbering
System, a receiving institution must accept
all courses taken at the transfer institution if
the same course with the same course
number is offered at the receiving institution.
F. Credits earned through articulated acceleration mechanisms, such as dual
enrollment, International Baccalaureate,
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
59
early admission, advanced placement, and
credit by examination, that are earned within
the A.A. degree at the community college,
will be transferable to the state university.
Students without an A.A. degree who are seeking
admission to a state university do not have all the
protection provided by the articulation agreement
and may be denied admission or lose credit when
transferring. In most cases, students without an
A.A. degree will have to meet freshman admissions standards.
Program Admission
General
The universities determine the courses and
prerequisites that must be taken in order to receive
a baccalaureate degree for a chosen program.
Although all credit earned toward an A.A. degree
will transfer to a university, not all credit may satisfy
the program prerequisites or the course requirements
for a baccalaureate degree. Therefore, it is important to know the program requirements and to take
as many of these courses as possible at the community college while completing the A.A. degree.
Limited Access
Because of demand or limited resources, most
of the universities have programs that are called
limited access programs. Admission to limited
access programs is granted on a competitive
basis. Consequently, limited access programs have
additional admission requirements that are more
restrictive than the universities general admission
requirements. These requirements include one
or more of the following: minimum grade point
averages, test scores, prerequisite courses, auditions and portfolios.
Guarantees
Neither Associate in Arts graduates nor native
university students are guaranteed admission to
limited access programs. However, the articulation
agreement does provide certain guarantees,
including that:
A. The community college student will have
the same opportunity to enroll in a university
limited access program as the native
university student.
B. Selection and enrollment criteria for a
university limited access program must be
established and published in catalogs,
counseling manuals, and other appropriate
publications. Changes in program enrollment
60
criteria must be given with sufficient advance
notice for prospective students to adjust their
programs to meet the new criteria.
Should any of these guarantees be denied, the
student has the right to file an appeal. Each state
university and community college has established
appeal procedures. These procedures must be
published in the university catalog. As a general
rule, if a student is denied admission to a university
or a program at the university and wants to appeal,
the appeal must be initiated at the university
admissions office.
Admission Appeals
If a student is accepted into a university, but is
denied admission to a program, the university must
state the reasons for the denial. This is usually
done in a letter from the dean of the college,
school or department. Any request for further
clarification should include:
A. A copy of the letter of denial.
B. A copy of the student s transcripts.
C. A copy of the page(s) from the counseling
manual or catalog outlining the program
requirements.
D. A signed statement requesting a review of
the denial.
Students should keep a copy of all correspondence
and a log of all telephone contacts. A copy of all of
the above information should be forwarded to the
university admissions office and the university
articulation officer.
Articulation Officers
The university articulation officer is responsible
for assisting the community college student seeking
admission to a university. If assistance is needed
with an appeal request or if it appears that a
department is not complying with the statewide
articulation agreement, the university articulation
officer should be contacted. Articulation officers at
the community colleges are also responsible for
assisting in the transfer of students to universities
and can advise students in the interpretation of
the articulation agreement and appealing an
admissions decision.
Appealing to the Articulation
Coordinating Committee
If the denial is upheld at the university level and
there is still a question of potential violation of the
articulation agreement, the student may request
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
a hearing before the Articulation Coordinating
Committee (Florida Education Center,Tallahassee,
Florida, 32399-0400). All of the avenues available
to the student at the institutional level should be
pursued prior to appealing to the Articulation
Coordinating Committee. The student should keep
a copy of all correspondence and a log of all
telephone contacts. The procedures for filing such
an appeal with the Articulation Coordinating
Committee are as follows:
A. The student submits a statement of the
problem, a copy of the letter of denial from
the university, a copy of the transcript in
question, a copy of the page(s) from the catalog or counseling manual, and a request to
have a hearing before the Articulation Coordinating Committee for purposes of adjudication.
B. All student appeals and policy concerns
are reviewed by the Articulation Appeals
Subcommittee, which then forwards its
recommendation(s) to the Articulation
Coordinating Committee. Issues not resolved
by the subcommittee are sent to the full
committee for resolution.
C. The Articulation Coordinating Committee
and Articulation Appeals Subcommittee may
request the appearance of representatives
or statements from the receiving or sending
institution to provide additional information
or clarification on the issue.
D. A decision letter on the disposition of an
appeal is written by the chair of the
Articulation Coordinating Committee to the
division deans, and copies are simultaneously sent to all persons involved, including
the student. The decision of the Articulation
Coordinating Committee shall be final.
ASSOCIATE IN SCIENCE
AND ASSOCIATE OF
APPLIED SCIENCE
DEGREE REQUIREMENTS
In addition to common core requirements noted
on page 49, Associate in Science (A.S.) degree
students must:
A. Complete the specified number of hours of
credit in an approved course of study as
outlined for the program.
B. Achieve a grade point average of at least
2.0 ( C ).
C. Complete at least 25 percent of semester
hours in residence at CFCC and attend
during the semester the degree is earned.
ACADEMIC PROGRESS
COLLEGE CREDIT DIVISION
A student s standing at Central Florida
Community College will be determined by the
relationship of hours attempted to grade points
earned. To be considered in good standing and
continue successfully toward a degree, a student
must earn the grade points necessary to maintain
a 2.0 ( C ) cumulative grade point average while
at CFCC.
Grade Point Deficit
ACADEMIC
INFORMATION
A grade point deficit is the difference between
the grade points needed for a C average and the
grade points earned on hours attempted. The
following examples demonstrate this concept.
It should be noted that a student can go from a
position of good standing to academic warning,
probation, or suspension within one term.

A C average (equal to 2 grade points per credit hour)
must be maintained to remain in good standing. Total
credits attempted, multiplied by 2, will establish the minimum number of grade points needed. From the grade
record listed above on 12 credit hours, 12 x 2 (for a C
average) = 24 grade points. Since 30 grade points were
earned, this student is in good standing.

This student earned 11 grade points in the second
term. Added to the 30 points from the first term, the student has earned 41 grade points. For the 27 credit hours
attempted (12 + 15 = 27), the student would need 54
grade points (27 x 2) to maintain a C average. Therefore, this student has a 13 grade point deficit (54 - 41 =
13) and will be placed on academic probation.
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
61
Academic Warning,Probation
and Suspension
Students with less than a 2.0 GPA shall be
placed on academic warning if they have a grade
point deficit of nine or less.
Students with less than a 2.0 GPA shall be
placed on academic probation if they have a
grade point deficit of 10 or more but less than 20.
These students must schedule an appointment
with a counselor for advisement and registration.
Students with a grade point deficit of 20 or
more shall be suspended for a minimum of one
full semester and then must petition the college
for readmittance. Call the counseling department
for assistance.
Academic Dismissal
Students returning after suspension will be
on probation. Any student who is suspended a
subsequent time will be dismissed from the college.
Such a student is not eligible to be readmitted to
the college for a minimum of one full calendar year.
The student may then petition the college for possible readmission. Favorable action is dependent
upon clear written evidence of factors that indicate
promise of successful performance.
Students returning from suspension or dismissal
who earn a semester GPA of 2.0 or above will not
be suspended for that particular term, even though
they may have an overall deficit of more than 20
grade points. Their performance shows promise
and, if continued, will result in good academic
standing. Under these circumstances, such a
student will continue on academic probation.
Transferring to CFCC with
Deficit Grade Points
All transfer students will be evaluated by these
standards of progress, using the same criteria
used for non-transfer students. Transfer students
entering with deficit grade points will be assigned
to the appropriate category, e.g., academic warning
or probation. They will return to good standing
when sufficient grade points have been earned to
achieve a C average.

institution may not enroll at CFCC, and a student
while under suspension from CFCC may not earn
credits toward a degree from this institution by taking
courses at another institution.

Standards of Progress Summary
Academic Warning .......1 9 grade point deficit
Academic Probation ....10 19 grade point deficit
Academic Suspension ....20 or more grade point
deficit
Provisions for Appeal
Any student who feels there were extraordinary
circumstances that led to a 20 or more grade point
deficit may appeal his or her suspension status to the
Student Petitions and Academic Review Committee.
A student (credit, occupational or audit) who
withdraws from all classes must begin official
withdrawal procedures by contacting a counselor
or adviser.The college calendar gives specific
deadlines for withdrawing from college without
penalty.
O C C U PATIONAL
C E RTIFICATE STUDENTS
A student s academic standing is determined
by the same method as outlined in the section
under College Credit Division. Program instructors
may authorize a student to re-enroll for one
additional term if the student is suspended after
only one term. Failure to achieve satisfactory
progress during the term of re-enrollment will
result in permanent suspension.
VETERANS
See section on Veterans, pages 45 46, for
specific information.
ATTENDANCE POLICY
Regular, punctual class attendance is the
responsibility of every student who enrolls at
Central Florida Community College. Likewise, the
institution is committed to enforcing the attendance
policy in an effort to assist students in achieving
their educational objectives. The documentation of
student absences will begin the first class day,
regardless of when the student registers. When a
student has a legitimate reason for being absent,
the instructor has the option of permitting the
student to make up work missed and may require
an explanation for absence.
The college reserves the right to evaluate
individual cases of non-attendance. In general,
students are graded on the basis of intellectual
effort and performance. Class participation is a
significant measure of performance, and nonattendance can adversely affect a student s grade.
Attendance at authorized off-campus student
activities (such as student organization meetings or
athletic events) is permitted to count toward class
attendance or approved absence on the instructor s class records. Students must give advance
notice of the intended absence, within guidelines
set
by the individual instructor, in order to have the
opportunity to prepare assignments and make up
or avoid missing tests. Faculty members are
expected to establish non-punitive policies toward
attendance at such college-sponsored, off-campus
student activities such as student organization
meetings or athletic events.
If conflicts exist between a student s regularlyscheduled class and another activity (including the
requirements of other classes), the student s
regularly-scheduled class should receive priority.
Instructors understand that students may be given
extra credit for such events, but no student will be
penalized for non-attendance.
If a student accumulates so many absences
that further enrollment in a course appears to be
of little value, the instructor may drop the student
from the course.
Students enrolled in occupational certificate
programs are permitted two unexcused absences
within any attendance month. Students who exceed
this number of unexcused absences may be placed
on probation and, if additional unexcused absences
occur, dropped from the program. The instructor
determines whether or not an absence is excused,
considering such factors as sickness, accidents and
other contingencies beyond the control of the student.
Students enrolling in certain technical programs,
e.g., nursing, criminal justice, and cosmetology, are
expected to meet specific guidelines.
COLLEGE LEVEL
ACADEMIC SKILLS TEST
(CLAST)
The College Level Academic Skills Test (CLAST)
measures the following skill areas: essay writing,
mathematics, English language skills and reading.
CFCC expectsall A.A. degree students to take
CLAST as soon as they have earned 18 semester
credit hours (excluding any college prep courses),
and have completed ENC 1101, any college level
math course higher than MAT 1033 (see page 55).
CFCC also makes CLAST available for A.S. degree
students who plan eventually to transfer to a
university in the Florida state system.
CLAST is offered three times a year in the fall,

winter, and summer terms on the Ocala and
Citrus County campuses. Required pre-registrations
may be done by calling the Testing Center at the
Ocala campus or the Counseling Office at the
Citrus campus.
There is a one-time $25 charge for first-time
takers and CLAST exemptions. CLAST is offered
three times annually: the first Saturday in October
(unless that is a holiday, in which case the test will
be given the last Saturday in September), the third
Saturday in February, and the first Saturday in June.
Registration closes at 4:30 p.m. Friday, four weeks
prior to the test. Registration information appears
throughout the year on CFCC bulletin boards. CLAST

All CLASTtakers are required to present two
forms of identification, one of which must have a
photo. Also, students must bring their CLAST
admission ticket, Social Security number, two
ballpoint pens, and two sharpened No. 2 pencils.
Free sample booklets are available in the Testing
Center, Building 7, Room 100, Ocala Campus, and
the Welcome Center at the Citrus County Campus.
Approximate test time is five hours, including 70
minutes administration time. Students may retest
as often as necessary, but must meet regular
registration deadlines. Only students who failed one
or more subtests may retest. Students may retake
only the subtests they failed. CFCC students
needing to retake the mathematics, English language
skills, and/or reading subtests may now use the
C AT-CLAST (Computer Assisted Testing) in the
college s Testing Center, Building 7, Room 101.
Essay retesting is available only on regular CLAST
dates. The college does not grant retesting
requests until students have satisfied an approved
review process. Students receive twice the original
amount of time for any subtests they retake.
Note: Beginning January 1, 1996, any student
fulfilling one or more of the listed requirements

78
form, or two weeks after the end of the Add/Drop
Date,whichever is the greater time period.

refund petition through the office of the Vice
President for Student Affairs will receive refunds
according to the following schedule:
100 percent: When official drop notification is
received and approved prior to the end of the
published drop/add period.
Up to 100 percent: The refund will be affected
by the portion of the term completed when a
student drops a course due to circumstances
determined by the college to be exceptional and
beyond the control of the student, which may
include but not be limited to:
A. Illness of the student of such severity or
duration, as confirmed in writing by a physician, to preclude completion of the course(s).
B. Death of the student or the student s parent,
spouse, child or sibling.

Guarantee
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
Any graduate of a CFCC associate degree
program in technical studies judged by his or her
employer as lacking in identified program competencies normally expected of a job entry-level
employee will be provided further training of up
to 16 semester credit hours without charge.
W ithdrawals and Repayment
of Title IV Funds
When a student who receives a net disbursement of Title IV funds ceases attendance prior to
the 60 percent point in the payment period, CFCC
will determine whether the student must repay a
portion of the net disbursement. A statutory prorata schedule will be used to determine the percentage of Title IV funds the student has earned at
the
time of withdrawal. Federal Work Study funds are
excluded in the calculation.
If a student withdraws after completing at least
60 percent of the term, it is assumed that the
student s living expenses up to the time of withdrawal exceeded the amount of the funds disbursed
and the student does not owe a repayment. However, if the disbursement was greater than the student s expenses up to the withdrawal date, the student must repay the excess amount or a portion of
the excess amount as applicable.
The percentage formula is: total number of
calendar days completed in the payment period
divided by the total number of calendar days in the
payment period equals the percentage of Title IV
funds earned.
The institution must return the lesser of the
amount of Title IV funds that the student does not
earn or the amount of institutional charges (tuition
and fees) that the student incurred for the payment
period multiplied by the percentage of funds that
was not earned.
The student (or parent, if a Federal Direct PLUS
loan) must return or repay the remaining unearned
Title IV program grant or loan funds. The student s
grant repayment is reduced by half when he or she,
rather than the institution, must return grant funds.
CFCC will notify the student, in writing, of the amount
owed, procedure for repayment and consequences
of non-payment within the allotted time frame.
Order of return of Title IV funds. Unearned
funds returned by the school or student are credited
to outstanding Title IV loan balances for the student
or made on the student s behalf. Funds must be
credited to outstanding balances in the following order:
Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan
Subsidized Federal Direct Loan
Federal Direct PLUS Loan
Remaining funds. If excess funds remain after
repaying all outstanding loan amounts, then the
remaining amount is credited to grant programs in
the following order:
Federal Pell grant
Federal SEOG
Other Title IV assistance
Detailed information on repayments is available
in the Financial Aid office.
State law, House Bill 1545, requires CFCC to
charge full cost of instruction for a student to
repeat, for the third time, a college preparatory
course in English, reading, or mathematics. However, due to financial hardship and/or extenuating circumstances, a student may be able to qualify for an
exception
to the increased fee. An exception based on
extenuating circumstances may be used only once
for each course.
FINANCIAL AID
The primary purpose of the financial aid program at Central Florida Community College is to
provide assistance to students who do not have
sufficient resources to meet the cost of attending
school. Aid is awarded on the basis of the student s
financial need and should be viewed as a supplement to the financial efforts of the student and the
student s family.
To be given full consideration, financial aid
applications should be filed prior to May 1 of each
calendar year for the following academic year;
however, students may apply as early as January.
Student consumer information and all application
forms are available in the Enrollment Services Center,
as well as at the Citrus County Campus and Levy
County Center.All applicants must also be accepted
for admission and have all required documents on
file in the Admissions and Records office (diplomas,
GED certificates, academic transcripts).
No application will be processed until all
required documents and information are in the student s
folder.The following forms are the primary ones
that are required for the processing of each financial aid application:

Students who enroll in an online class must
have access to a computer with Internet access,
have the ability to send and receive e-mail and
to use other computer conferencing software,
to work independently with minimal directives
and to attend class meetings as scheduled for
testing and review. Online courses normally are
designated in the course schedule with a W in
the course prefix (e.g., ENC 1101W).
Telecourses:Telecourses take advantage of
public educational broadcast channels and
videotape formats for the distribution of course
material. This distance learning format also
requires the ability to work independently as
class meetings for tests and review are
infrequently scheduled. For students without
local cable access, videotapes are provided
through the Learning Resources Center for use
during the term in which the course is taken.
Telecourses are designated in the course
schedule with a T (e.g., ENC 1101T).

math, and/or language. This testing is mandated
for all students once they have entered into an

morning and evening classes, and a wide variety
of other resources facilitate the learning process.

Therapy Education. The PTA program graduate must take and pass a state-administered national examination in order to become licensed and eligible to practice.

This is a limited access program with deadlines to apply.Application data is distributed at the
required information sessions. These are held on a scheduled basis. Call CFCC, (352) 873-5817, for dates
and times of information sessions.
The program policies including attendance, grading, clinical behaviors and readmission guidelines are
found in the student handbook that each student obtains once admitted to the PTA program. Both general

Courses in this catalog are listed in alpha-numeric
order. Following is a list of the courses usually
offered. The college reserves the right to determine
minimum enrollments in all courses. The term
credit as used in references to courses is equal to
one semester hour. Further, it means credit toward a
degree from CFCC and not necessarily credit
transferable to another institution.
COURSE CLASSIFICATION
All credit courses offered by CFCC are designated
in one of the following four classifications:
College preparatory:Those courses that are
offered for students who need review of basic skills
prior to enrolling in the college-level courses. These
courses are designated in the course description
with -c after the course number.
Occupational: Those courses that are offered
primarily for Associate in Science degree-seeking
students who do not plan to transfer to a college or
university.These courses are designated in the
course description with -o after the course number.
Parallel:Those courses that are considered to
be of college level and parallel to those courses one
would expect to take at any college or university.
These courses are designated in the course
description with -p after the course number.
Dual:Those courses that can be used for an
A.S. degree or that generally transfer to colleges
and universities if they are appropriate for a particular major.These courses are designated in the
course description with -d after the course number.
Gordon Rule classes are marked G-3000 or
G-6000 and with 2 in the course description.
College preparatory courses do not count
toward either an A.A. or an A.S. degree and
receive institutional credit only.They may be
used in calculating full-time status for athletic team
participation, financial aid and veterans benefits.
Occupational courses may not count toward
the A.A. degree. They count in full toward the
appropriate A.S. degree.
Parallel courses count toward the A.A.
degree and should transfer readily to any college
or university.
Dual courses count toward the A.A. degree
as part of the 60 hours only if they are appropriate
for the student s major.Students should consult with
a counselor prior to enrolling in a designated dual
course.
Terms courses are offered:
180
Students are cautioned against taking excessive
electives or courses out of their major field of study
at the expense of required prerequisites.
FLORIDA S STATEWIDE
COURSE NUMBERING SYSTEM
Courses in this catalog are identified by prefixes
and numbers that were assigned by Florida s
Statewide Course Numbering System.This common
numbering system is used by all public postsecondary institutions in Florida and by 26 participating
non-public institutions. The major purpose of this
system is to facilitate the transfer of courses
between participating institutions.
Each participating institution controls the title,
credit, and content of its own courses and recommends the first digit of the course number to
indicate the level at which students normally take
the course. Course prefixes and the last three digits
of the course numbers are assigned by members
of faculty discipline committees appointed for that
purpose by the Florida Department of Education in
Tallahassee. Individuals nominated to serve on
these committees are selected to maintain a
representative balance as to type of institution and
discipline field or specialization.
The course prefix and each digit in the course
number have meaning in the Statewide Course
Numbering System (SCNS). The list of course
prefixes and numbers, along with their generic titles,
is referred to as the SCNS taxonomy. (See the
example on page 181.)
General Rule for Course Equivalencies
Equivalent courses at different institutions are
identified by the same prefixes and same last three
digits of the course number and are guaranteed to
be transferable between the participating institutions
that offer the course, with a few exceptions.
(Exceptions are listed below.) For example, a survey
course in social problems is offered by 31 different
postsecondary institutions. Each institution uses
SYG _010 to identify its social problems course.
The level code is the first digit and represents the
year in which students normally take the course at
a specific institution. In the SCNS taxonomy, SYG
means Sociology, General, the century digit 0
represents Entry-Level General Sociology, the
decade digit 1 represents Survey Course, and
the unit digit 0 represents Social Problems.
F = Fall
W = Winter
S = Summer
C E N T R A L FLORIDA C O M M U N I T Y COLLEGE CATALOG 2003 2004
In science and other areas, a C or L after the
course number is known as a lab indicator.The C
represents a combined lecture and laboratory
course that meets in the same place at the same
time. The L represents a laboratory course or the
laboratory part of a course, having the same prefix
and course number without a lab indicator, which
meets at a different time or place.
Transfer of any successfully completed course
from one institution to another is guaranteed in
cases where the course to be transferred is
equivalent to one offered by the receiving institution.
Equivalencies are established by the same prefix
and last three digits and comparable faculty
credentials at both institutions. For example, SYG
1010 is offered at a community college. The same
course is offered at a state university as SYG 2010.
A student who has successfully complete SYG 1010
at the community college is guaranteed to receive
transfer credit for SYG 2010 at the state university if
the student transfers. The student cannot be
required to take SYG 2010 again since SYG 1010 is
equivalent to SYG 2010. Transfer credit must be
awarded for successfully completed equivalent
courses and used by the receiving institution to
determine satisfaction of requirements by transfer
students on the same basis as credit awarded to the
native students. It is the prerogative of the receiving
institution, however, to offer transfer credit for
courses successfully completed which have not
been designated as equivalent.
The Course Prefix
The course prefix is a three-letter designator for a
