ously taken. An official transcript of all previ-
ous work is required whether a student has
earned transfer credit or not, or whether a
student wants transfer credit or not. Credit
may be given for transfer courses in which the
applicant has earned "C" or higher. If the stu-
dent is in academic difficulty, he is not eligible
to apply until one semester has passed.

3. Must complete at least 30 credit hours at York
College for completion of any degree pro-

Students who have earned an Associate of Arts,
Associate of Science, or other equivalent two-year
degree, shall be accepted as candidates for a Bachelor
of Arts or Bachelor of Science Degree, subject to the
following qualifications:

1. The Associate Degree shall have been
awarded by a regionally accredited institu-

2. All students holding degrees from other insti-
tutions shall have transcripts evaluated by the
Admissions Committee.

3. Although full credit is given for the earned
degree, a student may be required to take cer-
tain additional courses not previously com-
pleted satisfactorily which are prerequisite for
his chosen curriculum.

4. Graduation with honors will be based on the
cumulative grade point average earned in-
cluding transfer credits.

5. Transfer students are eligible for financial aid
at the time of admission.

Prior to admission to the first clinical nursing
care course, all records of transfer students must be
reviewed by the Scholastic Standards Committee of
the Department of Nursing. The earliest review date
for FaO admission is June 15th. Refer to admissions
criteria for Department of Nursing.

Students seeking to transfer after an unsuccess-
ful experience at another institution should have
passed at least 60% of the courses taken elsewhere.
Students who have been unsuccessful at two colleges
are not eligible for admission.

Direct Transfer

In order to expedite the admission of students
transferring from the two-year colleges, York College
has entered into direct transfer agreements with
Bucks County Community College (PA), Dundalk
Community College (MD), Howard Community Col-
lege (MD), Montgomery College (MD), Orange
County Community College (NY), Dean Junior Col-
lege (MA) and Wesley College (DE). Since more direct
transfer agreements are in the process of being nego-
tiated, we suggest you consult with the transfer
counselor at your college to learn if an agreement
exists there.
Admission of Veterans

Students training under one of the Public Laws
should apply at their local Veterans Administration
Office for educational benefits prior to their registra-
tion in College. They should bring with them, if pos-
sible, for registration purposes the original or supple-
mental letter of eligibility. Veterans may qualify for
advanced standing; they should check their service
schooling with the Director of Admissions.


Any student who has not been enrolled for one
semester or more must obtain and file a readmission
application with the Admissions Office and be for-
mally readmitted to the College.

Late Registration

Applicants who have been admitted to the Col-
lege, but for reasons beyond their control cannot reg-
ister during the regularly scheduled registration pe-
riod, may enroll late during the first week of the fall
semester and during the first week of the spring se-
mester. Anyone who cannot register on time is re-
quested to notify the Registrar's Office. A late fee of
$10.00 will be charged to part-time students and
$15.00 to full-time students.


Admissions 8^ Finances

Deferred Registration

Normally any applicant who has been admitted
and fails to register during the academic year for
which he has been admitted must initiate the applica-
tion procedure anew if he desires admittance at a
later date. Howeyer, an applicant may haye his ad-
mission deferred for one year if he notifies the Ad-
missions Office in writing of his request for deferred
registration. In the case of an applicant who is drafted
into the Armed Seryices, the applicant must reacti-
yate his application within a year of his separation
from the service. The tuition deposit, if paid prior to
being drafted, will be refunded upon written request.


Tuition and fees are payable prior to the begin-
ning of each semester. No student may enter class
until payment or arrangements for payment haye
been made. No reduction in tuition or fees is made
for late registration.

If students do not meet their financial obligations
prior to the end of the academic semester they will
not be permitted in classes nor will they be permitted
to take the final examination. Naturally, grades or
transcripts will not be released until all financial obli-
gations haye been met.

The College reserves the right to change fees and
charges without notice.

Deposit Refunds

...for Entering Freshmen and Transfer Students

Deposits for Transfer and Freshmen Students are
not refundable. See pages 27 and 28.

...for Returning Students

Returning Students are required to make a
$100.00 deposit, if a commuter, or $200.00 deposit, if
a resident. The deposit for Returning Students will be
refunded under the following conditions:

(a) If a student is academically suspended from
the College;

(b) If a student is refused final admission;

(c) All full-time students attending the Fall Se-
mester are requested to make the required
deposit before scheduling classes. This de-
posit signifies their intention to return to
York College in the Spring Semester of the
academic year. In order to obtain a refund of
his deposit, a student must file a written re-
quest for refund of his deposit with the Busi-
ness Office on or before December 20. If a
full-time student withdraws, or is socially
suspended, after December 20 and prior to
Spring Registration, no refund of his deposit
will be made.

(d) All full-time students attending the Spring
Semester are requested to make a similar
deposit before scheduling classes. This de-
posit signifies their intention to return to
York College in the Fall Semester of the next
academic year. In order to obtain a refund of
this deposit, a student must file a written
request for refund with the Business Office
on or before June 15. If a full-time student
withdraws, or is socially suspended, after
June 15 and prior to Fall Registration, no re-
fund of his deposit will be made.


Full-time students may secure, on a voluntary
basis, a twelve-month insurance policy covering hos-
pitalization and medical expenses as an in-patient.
This covers both sickness and accident on a 24-hour
per day basis.

Brochures describing the benefits and costs are
available and will be mailed to incoming students.


Financial Policy

There are numerous sources upon which stu-
dents may draw to finance their education. Some
funds are administered by the College and others ac-
crue to the students by virtue of Federal Government
support of higher education in the form of loans,
scholarships and grants-in-aid. Every effort is being
made by the College to keep tuition and fees at a low
level since this is in itself a form of scholarship aid
to all entering students.

York College is a member of the College Scholar-
ship Service of the College Bo^rd. Non-Pennsylvania
resident aid applicants may supply a Financial Aid
Form submitted through the College Scholarship
Service or they may file the Pennsylvania State Grant
application (PHEAA/Federal Student Aid Applica-
tion). All returning students are encouraged to file
the PHEAA/Federal Application.
Inquiries should be directed to:

Admissions &^ Finances

Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy

The Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended bv
Congress in 1980 mandates institutions of higher
education to establish standards of "satisfactory
progress" for students receiving financial assistance
from Federal Funds. As of January 1, 1983, the Col-
lege makes these standards applicable to the Pell
Grants, Supplementary Educational Opportunity
Grants, National Direct Student Loans, College Work
Study Program, Nursing Student Loans, Guaranteed
Student Loans and "PLUS" Loans. Inshtutional
funds require a minimum grade point average of 2.0
unless the guidelines of the scholarship or fund stip-
ulates a higher G.P.A.

Undergraduate students enrolled for twelve (12)
credits are considered to be full-time. Six (6) to eight
(8) credits are considered half-time. Nine (9) to eleven
(11) credits are considered to be three-quarter time.

It is expected that a full-time student will reason-
ably complete a baccalaureate degree program within
fi\'e (5) years or an associate degree program within
two and one-half (2'/:) years. Financial aid will nor-
mally terminate at that time unless extenuating cir-
cumstances occur such as illness or a death in the
family which might cause a student to take a longer
time to complete his studies. The Financial Aid Office
will evaluate such extenuating circumstances to de-
termine if aid should be extended.

A student's total academic record will be used to
determine that satisfactory progress has been made.
(A transfer student enrolled for the first time is as-
sumed to be making satisfactory progress regardless
of his/her prior post secondary experience.) A full-
time student who receives financial aid must average
twelve (12) credit hours passed for each semester.
Typically, a student who attends both the fall and
spring semesters and who does not attend summer
school, must pass twenty-four (24) new credit hours
those two semesters. A student who does not com-
plete the 24 credit hours has the following options:

1 . Enroll for the necessary number of hours dur-
ing the summer sessions (without financial
aid). Successful completion would re-estab-
lish aid eligibilitN' for the following fall semes-

2. Not attend the summer sessions and for the
fall semester (without financial aid) enroll as a
full-time student or take the necessar)' credits
to re-establish eligibility for the spring semes-

A student who is on academic probation shall be
considered to have made progress if he she has
passed the required credit hours as stipulated above.

Part-time undergraduate students will be evalu-
ated for aid eligibility at the end of the semester in
which the 24th credit hour was attempted. Graduate
students will be expected to pass all course work.
They will be evaluated for progress at the end of each

If a student feels he has not been fairly judged or
has extenuating circumstances, the student will re-
quest the Director of Financial Aid to review his cir-
cumstances. In the event the student is not satisfied
with the review decision, he may appeal to the Dean
of Student Affairs.


Pell Grants

(Formerly Basic Opportunity Grants)

A Federal program which provides grants of up
to $1900 to students showing a financial need. Appli-
cation is made directly to the government.

Pennsylvania Higher Education
Grant Program

York College of Pennsylvania is a participating
institution in the Pennsylvania Higher Education
Grant Program. All students applying for institu-
tional financial aid must apply for these funds if they
are a Pennsylvania resident. Each year application
deadlines are announced by the Agency. Award
amounts are limited to 80% of the cost of tuition, but
may not exceed $1500 per year. Students are eligible
for up to 8 semesters of grant eligibility (in a four-year
program). Students must maintain academic progress
(progression from one academic level to the next aca-
demic level each year). Students should contact their
high school Guidance Office, the Financial Aid Office
at the school they are, or will be, attending, or
PHEAA, Towne House, Harrisburg, Pa. 17102 for fur-
ther information.

Supplemental Educational
Opportunity Grants

York College of Pennsylvania awards Supple-
mental Educational Opportunity Grants to a limited
number of students with exceptional financial need
who require these grants to attend college. This pro-
gram was authorized by the Higher Education Act of
1965 and began its first year of operation in the fall of

The amount of financial assistance a student may
recei\'e depends on his need.

College Work-Study Program

This program was established by the Economic
Opportunity Act of 1964 and was transferred to the
United States Office of Education by the Higher Edu-
cation Act of 1965.

Under the Work-Study Program, full-time stu-
dents are assigned responsibilities for the full aca-
demic year. Students may be employed up to 15
hours per week.

Work-Study has been of particular interest to
many students and has become one of the most at-
tractive ways to help in the payment of college ex-
penses. If the assignment to a Work-Study Program
should not sufficiently meet the financial needs of a
student to attend York College, a "package of aid"
(consisting of a combination of work, loan or scholar-
ship) may be awarded in order not to place an undue
hardship upon the student or his family.

ROTC Scholarships

An unspecified number of Army Reserve Offi-
cers Training Corps (ROTC) Scholarships of one-,
two-, or three-year awards provide full tuition, aca-
demic fees, books/supplies and a $100 per month
tax-free stipend. Application through the Army
