Saint Louis Community Coll. at Forest Park, MO.
This handbook for incoming students describes procedures, services, programs, and opportunities at St. Louis Community College at Forest Park. First, the handbook outlines procedures for enrolling in classes, covering admissions, placement tests, registration, fee payment, and adding, dropping, or changing classes. A section on new student orientation is followed by brief descriptions of various student services, including financial aid, student activities, instructional resources, the learning achievement center, the Careers for Homemakers Program, veterans services, the Metropolitan Re-Employment Program, counseling and advising, and job placement. The next section offers information on interpreting placement tests results, figuring grade point averages, planning schedules, class attendance requirements, course withdrawal, obtaining transcripts, and dealing with academic problems. This section also describes programs such as the Institute for Continuing Education and the Reserve Officer Training Corps and outlines alternative means for obtaining credit (e.g., credit by examination, work/military experience evaluation, and transfer credits). A list of the associate degree and certificate programs available on campus is followed by definitions of various terms, such as academic load, elective courses, honors list, and waivers. The last sections provide a directory of services, an academic calendar, a sample academic advising form, and sample placement test questions. (LL)
