GENERAL EDUCATION (CORE)
REQUIREMENTS

York College of Pennsylvania has a core curricu-
lum (general education) which is an integral part of
all baccalaureate majors. The purpose of these gen-
eral requirements can be stated in the following man-
ner.

Through a well-defined introduction to the arts,
humanities, and sciences, the general education cur-
riculum should:

— develop students' abilities to communicate ef-
fectively
— develop students' abilities to think critically
— develop students' working knowledge of

mathematical methods
— help students understand the relationships
among and the historical perspectives of the
various fields of knowledge
— foster creativity
— encourage life-long learning.
Students should emerge from this educational
experience:

— aware of the roles of science and technology in

their lives
— appreciating and enjoying the arts
— understanding their own and others' behav-
ior, social environment, and cultural heritage
— conscious of the complexity involved in mak-
ing ethical judgements
— able to make informed decisions
— valuing physical well-being
— sensitive to the role of the public sector and
aware of their responsibilities and obligations
as citizens.
Because students' perceptions and understand-
ing mature during the educational process, general
education courses should be taken at all years of the
college experience.

GENERAL POLICIES

Attendance Policies

Most educators feel that attendance at all meet-
ings of scheduled classes is a worthwhile activity.
Class attendance policy at York College of Pennsylva-
nia is at the discretion of the instructor. The class will
be informed in writing within the syllabus whether
attendance is used as a criterion in evaluating student
performance. Naturally the student is responsible for
all work of the course unless specifically exempted by
the instructor. It is recognized that some absences
may be necessary or unavoidable. The student
should inform the instructor of the reason for the ab-
sence and make arrangements to make up any work



which is missed. The responsibility of initiating
action to make up work missed in the classroom rests
with the student.

Major/Minor — Declaration or Change

Students wishing to change their major should
fill out a Change in Student Record form which is
available in the Scheduling Office. An appropriate
advisor will be assigned immediately by the Director
of Academic Advising.

Should a student wish to major in a second area
of concentration he may do so and this fact will be
noted on the transcript. While only one baccalaureate
degree may be received from York College of Penn-
sylvania, more than one major may be completed and
designated on the transcript.

Declaration of a minor will be made on the appli-
cation for the Baccalaureate degree. This information
must be completed during the last semester on
campus.

Repeated Courses

Any student who has taken a course at York Col-
lege will be permitted to repeat this course. While
both grades will appear on the student's permanent
record, the quality points earned on the basis of the
higher grade will be used in the computation of the
cumulative grade point average.

Since grades and quality points are not trans-
ferred from other institutions, a course which is re-
peated at another institution will have no influence
whatsoever on the cumulative grade point average
earned at York College of Pennsylvania.

Awarding of a Second Degree

A student holding an Associate or Baccalaureate
Degree from another accredited college may pursue
courses at York College leading toward a second de-
gree (either Associate or Baccalaureate) provided that
the following conditions are met:

1. The candidate must meet the departmental
requirements established for the major as
published in the College Catalog. The Depart-
ment Chairman will review the student's aca-
demic record and indicate the additional
courses that will be necessary to complete the
degree requirements.

2. The candidate must complete a minimum of
the last thirty semester credit hours of the
major at York College.

Courses Taken at Other Institution

Students desiring to pursue summer work or
additional work at another institution must secure
written permission from the Dean of Academic Af-



Academic Policies



fairs prior to beginning the work in order to ha\'e the
credits transferred back to York College.

The grade earned must be a "C" or better for
transfer. Credit hours for courses taken at other in-
stitutions may be transferred but grades and quality
points do not transfer and the credits earned will be
added to the "other credits" in determining the num-
ber of credits completed. Students are reminded that
they must complete the last 30 credit hours of their
program at York College to be eligible for a degree.

Since grades and quality points are not trans-
ferred they would not have any impact on a person's
grade point average. Because of this, courses should
not be repeated at another institution.

Physical Education Exemption Policy

Physical education credits are an integral part of
the requirements for obtaining a degree from York
College of Pennsyh'ania. Four physical education
skills credits are required for the baccalaureate degree
and two physical education skills credits are required
for the associate degree.

A student may petition the Dean of Academic
Affairs for exemption from this requirement for the
reasons of age, obtaining an associate degree from
another institution, medical disability, full time active
dutv in the military service, or part-time student sta-
tus. Details concerning any of the above may also be
obtained from the Dean of Academic Affairs' office.

Graduation

Each student who hopes to receive a degree must
make application for the degree during the final se-
mester on campus. The deadline for such an applica-
tion is usually within the first month of that semester.
Applications for a degree are available at the Records
Office.

In order to participate in a commencement cere-
mony a student must be enrolled in adequate hours
during that final semester, the successful completion
of which will enable him to meet all degree require-
ments. It is imperative that application for a degree be
made by the deadline published each semester.

Examinations

Examinations during a semester vary in number
according to the instructor. The final examinations,
held during a special Final Examination Week, are
generallv designed to cover all the material discussed
in the courses. Students found guilt)' of academic dis-
honest\' will receive a grade of "0" and may be sus-
pended from the college. Students are expected to
have completed all of the examinations offered in the
course before credit can be received.



SPECIAL PROGRAMS

York College offers a full spectrum of credit
courses in the evenings, on Saturday and throughout
the summer for students of all ages. Such courses are
available to students who want to work toward a de-
gree, either Associate or Baccalaureate, or who desire
continuing education for cultural or vocational rea-
sons. With approval of the Dean of Academic Affairs
a student may attend on a full-time basis.

The courses offered are all selected from the col-
lege catalog. Over half are taught by full-time faculty
members. The choices are based on surveys taken
among students and in the community with the ob-
jective of fulfilling the mission of York College, to
serve the total Central Pennsylvania community of
college age youth, adults in business, education, and
industry, and those wishing to broaden their inter-
ests in life through education.

Evening Courses

Evening courses are offered throughout the
week and on Saturday to serve adults who wish to
earn degrees or increase their vocational skills. These
classes meet one time a week for three hours. Classes
are held on the college campus on Country Club
Road, at industry locations when requested, and in
Hanover at the senior high school.

Students may earn college credit for these
courses. There are no requirements for admission
except a high school diploma or an equivalent G.E.D.
As a rule, evening session students enroll for a maxi-
mum of two courses. After earning 12 credits (gener-
ally four courses) with satisfactory grades, students
may apply for admission to a degree program.

All college services are available for evening stu-
dents; including parking, admission to all home ath-
letic contests, concerts, lectures and certain films, li-

brary services, scheduled advising by faculty and the
use of the Student Center.

In the Evening Sessions, review courses are of-
fered to assist students in strengthening their basic
skills. Non-credit courses in continuing education
and leisure learning are offered from time to time.

The Twilight Learning Program

The Special Programs Office has recently devel-
oped a new program designed for the working man
or woman entitled The Twilight Learning Program. This
program offers late afternoon and early evening
classes in order that working adults can enroll in
