College put on event Simply For Ayrshire Hospice

Ayrshire College students were delighted to once again deliver Ayrshire Hospice’s fantastic ‘Simply For You’ programme at the college’s Ayr campus.

‘Simply For You’ is an informal workshop designed to boost confidence and morale for ladies struggling with changes to their appearance.

Amid lots of fun, laughter and pampering, the Ayrshire Hospice ladies picked up a few style and colour tips from the students while enjoying the friendly support of other women facing similar challenges.

Students at Ayrshire College have been supporting the programme since 2014.

This year the Make-Up Artistry and Beauty students provided facials, hand care and make-up sessions, and colour analysis to the hospice women.

The day was a resounding success, summed up best by one of the ladies who attended. She said “I’ve had a great time! It’s been nice learning some new ideas from the young ones who are training. The Ayrshire Hospice team have been fantastic again.”

Lisa Flint, Curriculum Manager of Hair, Beauty, Complementary Therapy and Make-up at Ayrshire College, said “We were delighted to hold our first ‘Simply for You’ programme at the Ayr campus. The relationship we have built over the past couple of years with the Ayrshire Hospice provides our learners with invaluable real-life experience whilst supporting our local community.

“I am extremely proud of the professionalism, knowledge and high standard of treatments the learners provided. They were true ambassadors for Ayrshire College and have gained more insight into the Ayrshire Hospice. The feedback from guests and students proved that this was a huge success and a very enjoyable day for all involved. We are looking forward to holding our next event.”

SEARCH THE WEEKEND COLLEGE CLASS SCHEDULE

To view Weekend College classes, go to the MyNCC/Banner class schedule. Choose to search for the semester you are e in and click Submit. Next to Session, scroll down and click “Weekend” or “Friday Evening” and then “Class Search”.

WITHDRAWING FROM CLASSES: PROCEDURES AND IMPACT ON GRADES

From the beginning of the 4th week until the end of the 9th week of classes, you may officially withdraw from a credit-bearing course. To do so, you must submit a withdrawal form signed by your professor to the Registrar’s Office in the Tower, lower level. A “W” (Withdrawal) will appear on your transcript and is not calculated in your Grade Point Average (GPA), but can impact your Academic Standing. (Note. You cannot withdraw from remedial/developmental courses.)

After the ninth week of the semester, an official withdrawal is permitted only at the professor’s discretion.

If you are registered for a course and stop attending without following the official withdrawal procedure, it will be treated as an unofficial withdrawal, resulting in a grade of “UW”. Grades of “UW”are included in calculating the GPA and count as an “F”.

You may wish to talk with an advisor about the impact of withdrawing from a course before doing so.

If you register for a course and never attend, you will be given a grade of “NA” (Never Attended). This grade is not calculated in your GPA but, like the “W” grade, can impact your Academic Standing.

Nursing

Thank you for your interest in the Lee College nursing programs. The Lee College administration, faculty, and staff are committed to student success and strive to help students become nurses. We continuously review and assess program outcomes and student achievement, utilizing data to drive decision-making within the nursing programs. We have a variety of ways student achievement is measured, and we recognize that variables exist, affecting student outcome data. The student achievement measures include graduates’ success on the licensure and/or certification examination, students’ completion of the nursing program within 150 percent of the program length, and graduates ability to obtain a job. For more information regarding the student achievement data, please contact the nursing office at 281.425.6229.

Dr. Tracy Allen, DNP, RN, MSN, FNP-BC, CEN
Director of Nursing

The purpose of the Associate Degree Nursing Program is to prepare students with beginning competencies to practice as registered nurses upon successful writing of the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. The program is accredited by the Texas Board of Nursing and the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing, Inc. (ACEN), 3343 Peachtree Road NE, Suite 850, Atlanta, GA 30326.

It is recommended that the applicant complete some or all of the general education courses in the curriculum prior to entry into the program. After successful completion of this program, the graduate is eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses. Upon passing the examination, the graduate is licensed as a Registered Nurse. Job opportunities include hospitals, clinics, home health care facilities, long-term care facilities, industry, and specialty health care hospital units. The registered nurse works within the scope of nursing as defined by the Nursing Practice Act in the State of Texas.

Lee College Nursing Division is committed to lifelong learning and encourage students to continue their education. Lee College Nursing Division has articulation agreements for RN-BSN programs with Lamar University, Texas Tech University, and Chamberlain University. Once the Associate Degree Nursing graduate passes the NCLEX-RN exam, they are eligible to transition to a BSN program. Articulation agreements make this transition seamless. Students interested in pursuing RN-BSN programs should contact the nursing admissions or the counseling office for more information.

Degree plans information and admission criteria can be found in the current edition of the Lee College catalog or contact the nursing admission office at 281.425.6229.

Biggest Colleges in the U.S.

Studying at a Large University

Studying at a large university comes with many pros and cons. Consider the following if you re still trying to decide whether attending a big college is the right path for you

  • Class Size: It goes without saying that larger universities have more students than smaller colleges. This presents the opportunity for students to network with more people who come from diverse backgrounds and cultures. However, it also requires students to be accustomed to attending lectures with hundreds of students in a classroom. Because lectures are so big and generally do not allow for students to ask questions and engage, many big institutions also have discussion sessions to go with lectures where classes are essentially broken down into smaller groups to encourage student participation.
  • Faculty: Teachers and staff are often experts in their fields at big universities. However, with class sizes being overwhelmingly big, it may be a challenge for students to have a more one-on-one learning experience with their professors unless they set aside time outside of class to ask questions.
  • Extracurricular Activities: Big colleges offer a vast variety of activities to choose from, whether it be sports, Greek life, academic societies, etc. With a larger student body involved in each activity, it can be more difficult to break into each activity than at a smaller college.
  • Courses: If you re looking to explore your options and dabble in multiple academic programs, a large university may be right for you. Big colleges offer more curriculum than you could imagine, and you ll definitely have the opportunity to try out a variety of majors, minors, and concentrations. This expansive learning environment allows students to really explore their interests and abilities before determining which field(s) is best for them.
  • Social Life: For those who socialize best in big groups or crowds and enjoy meeting new people all the time, attending a large university will allow just that. There are also more academic groups to join to connect with other students studying the same things or sharing the same interests.

Tips for Succeeding at the Biggest Colleges

With very little hand-holding from professors and faculty, it can be really easy to get lost in a swarm of students at the biggest colleges, so it s important to plan ahead for your success if you plan to study at one. Here are some pointers to get you started:

  • Don t procrastinate.
    • While it might be the natural state of most college students, procrastination often causes unnecessary stress, especially if things don t go as planned at the very last minute. Getting started on assignments early gives students the time to ask peers or their professors questions before turning it in if needed, for example. Finishing an assignment early allows for reviewing and fine-tuning if desired, and the ease of mind that it s done!
  • Eat well, and be well.
    • It s easy to get caught up and stressed over piles of reading and other assignments. We get it. However, without good health, there will be no good grades! Believe it or not, your overall well-being directly affects how you perform as a student, whether it be in the classroom, library, or your own room. Ditch the instant noodles and soda, and try a quinoa bowl, some fruits, and green juice instead.
    • In addition to eating well, being well is crucial, too. This means setting aside at least 30 minutes a day for physical activity, whether it be going out for a walk, lifting weights at the gym, or doing yoga in your living room. Working out helps to relax muscles that may tense up during study sessions, too.
  • Network.
    • You may have heard the saying, It s not always about what you know, but rather, who you know. A big perk of studying at a large university is the vast number of individuals in the same boat attending the same college, studying the same field, interested in similar things, etc. With this advantage, it is important for students to put in time and effort into networking with other students. The benefits of networking will not only bring you a long way during your college years, but in the years to come, for potentially the rest of your life and career, too!
  • Ask questions.
    • Don t be afraid to ask questions early on if you re not understanding a concept, or are curious about how something works that isn t explained in the textbook or lectures. If you never ask, you ll never know! Larger universities offer a multitude of learning resources, and it is ultimately up to the student to take full advantage of it.
  • Participate in class whenever possible.
    • Participation not only gets teachers to know and remember you, it s also a great way to get feedback on what you know and where you can improve. It is essentially a form of active learning, and can take the form of engaging on a topic of discussion in a study group, or answering a question that a professor asks in class, for example.

Nursing Administration (onsite online)

Special Admission Statement 2-9-16

The nursing profession is constantly evolving to meet the needs of health care systems and patients. The most recent major innovation is the introduction of the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) and Clinical Nurse Leader (CNL) degrees. Based on recommendations from the Institute of Medicine, the Joint Commission, and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the University of Pittsburgh School of Nursing (as well as other educational institutions) began transitioning advanced practice nursing programs to the Doctor of Nursing Practice degree level and created the CNL area of concentration in our MSN program.

In line with this effort, Pitt Nursing is no longer accepting applications for admissions to the MSN in Nursing Administration area of concentration, as of February 2016. The profession still needs nurse leaders with training and advanced knowledge in management, quality, safety, and expertise at the point of care. Thus, prospective students are encouraged to consider applying to our master’s degree program in the CNL area of concentration. which prepares you to be an effective leader of efforts to coordinate care across the continuum of health care service, improve patient safety, deliver effective and efficient care in a fiscally responsible manner, and to test and implement evidence-based practice innovations. The CNL program, ranked third in U.S. New World Report’s 2016 Best Graduate Schools, is offered both on-campus and online through Pitt Online.

    Respiratory Programs at Ontario Colleges

    What to expect from a career as a Respiratory Therapist

    Respiratory therapy is a popular career choice for those wishing to enter the health care field. Respiratory therapy programs at Ontario colleges prepare students to apply for certification to become registered respiratory therapists. From there, graduates can work in both home care and public health care settings, assisting patients with cardiopulmonary abnormalities or deficiencies.

    If you re interested in helping people in need and can see yourself specializing in respiratory care, here s what you need to know. More

    Respiratory Therapy Courses

    Ontario college respiratory therapy programs combine in-class theory with hands-on training and lab work. Core courses in anatomy and physiology provide a foundational knowledge of the human body, while classes on arterial blood gases and anesthesia give information targeted to respiratory therapy.

    Practical classes such as cardiac function testing, mechanical ventilation and respiratory care procedures will help you build the skills you need to assess and treat patients. You will then put these skills into practice through a clinical placement or hospital practicum.

    General Respiratory Therapy Program Requirements

    Respiratory therapy programs require an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, including a grade 12 English and grade 12 mathematics credit. Additional senior science credits will be required but will vary by institution, so be sure to check each institution s requirements closely.

    A medical history and background check may also be required.

    Note: To become a licensed respiratory therapist, graduates of respiratory therapy programs must complete the Canadian Society of Respiratory Therapists (CSRT) certification exam. Graduates may also wish to continue their education in a graduate studies program specializing in anesthesia assistance (or other health care program).

    Respiratory Therapy Jobs and Salaries

    Certified respiratory therapists have the option to specialize in adult or child care, and also have a number of different care settings available to them. These include (but aren t limited to):

    • Emergency / Operating rooms
    • Intensive care units
    • Neonatal nurseries
    • Community care facilities

    Other career opportunities can be found in sales. maintenance, education and consulting positions.

    The average starting salary for respiratory therapy graduates is roughly $50,000, with the potential to increase with experience and skill level.

    About the OIU

    The Old Ignatians Union was officially established in 1897 with the aim of sustainaing and strengthening the connection Old Boys have with each other, and with the Saint Ignatius College, Riverview.

    Members can connect with each other in various ways. There are Old Ignatians Sports Clubs. Class and Country Reunions and the OIU Annual Dinner provide Old Boys with an opportunity to re-connect with lost classmates, continue long-lasting friendships, and make new ones. There are also opportunities for members to forge business connections and establish mentoring partnerships.

    There are many ways for Old Boys to connect with the College, and it is hoped that this site will extend and enrich such connections. We welcome your participation, and thank you for your involvement in our association. For more information about any of the above activities please contact us.

    FBS: FOOTBALL BOWL SUBDIVISION
    (BCS & Other Division I Football Index Page)


    Get the Best Fight Songs (HQ Stereo) on 20 Different Music CD’s. Please Help Support This Site.

    Welcome to the “LARGEST” College Football Fight Song web site in the universe, where all the songs are now in MP3 format. I have always been a fan of college football and especially the Nittany Lions of Penn State. All the MP3’s on this site have been compressed 11 to 1 in size and reformatted in mono, all to help save webspace. It has been a rough ride these past 2-3 years as interest seems to hae waned a bit and it is more costly to keep the site up for FREE! And now certain schools like Miami (FL), Washington and Utah forced me to remove the school’s songs from the website, even though they are free to download and isn’t this kind of like FREE advertisement for those schools? And all those millions of dollars the football programs bring and to top that with the price of tuition, you would think they would want to share the songs with their alumni, current students and fans of those schools. If anyone can help, please do to get those songs back up and available on this site. I am also in the process of adding as many or all of the football schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). After completion, there will be well over 1,000 total songs for you FREE to download. I will also be reformatting all the music CD’s, moving teams to the correct conference CD and adding all the new schools, even the FCS schools.

    Also, you will still be able to purchase your favorite school songs via email for $5 or less per school or per conference. Especially the FCS conferences, where 1-2 schools songs will be prevailant throughout. You will want the higher quality songs for your ringtone(s) on your cellphone and iPhones. But please don’t forget about the CD’s, they also help in the funding for this site or shopping at one of the sponsors on this site. And if you are not considering a purchase at this time, please consider a friendly donation of $10 or $20 or any value at that to make sure this website stays up and running for many years to come and into the future. Thank you very much for your continued support.

    College Football Fight Music CD’s (21 Volumes)

    My College Football Fight Music CD/MP3 Store has changed many times over the years as the NCAA Football Conference realignment is a never ending process as money dictates which schools play in the
    (5) major BCS conferences and who play in the other FBS mid-major football conferences. My collection now contains 21 different CD’s, with Volumes 1 & 13 focus on all five of the power five conferences (ACC, Big Ten, Big 12, PAC-12, SEC and Notre Dame). These same conferences are also focused on: Volumes 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 19, 20 and 14 (alma maters). The mid-major conferences, which now include the AAC, CONF-USA, MAC, MWC an the SUNBELT are representive on Volumes 9, 10, 11, 12 and 15 (alma maters). I also now have different fight music CD’s (Volumes 16, 17 and 18 (alma maters) focusing on the schools from the FCS (Football Championship Subdivision). Of course it is impossible to include all the songs on the CD’s, thats for both the FCS and FBS CD’s, so you can also purchase the individual songs from each college for only $1-$5 each depending on the number of songs I have available. And if you already purchased in the past, at least a donation would be of great help to me. To send a donation, just click on the PayPal banner just below. Thank you very much.

    Posted in Kenai Peninsula College

    “Bikadelic” is an acrylic on canvas painting by Kaitlin Vadla.

    By Zirrus VanDevere, for the Redoubt Reporter

    I recently was invited to help judge the current Kenai Peninsula College Student Exhibit with Cathleen Rolph, and found it to be a difficult task because there were so many wonderful pieces to consider. That is a great sign for an exhibit that has many first-year students, and speaks volumes about the quality of instruction occurring there.

    The Juror’s Choice Award went to already accomplished artist Chris Banas for his self-portrait in pastel. The bold, confident lines and poignant rendering is, in my opinion, quite simply the way portraits should be done. My sense upon coming across it was that it moved me to want to know the artist as well as the subject (which, it turned out, were one in the same in this case). I didn’t have any trouble casting my vote in that direction.

    By Zirrus VanDevere for the Redoubt Reporter

    “Hieroglyphic Morning” by Jayne Jones is part of the art faculty exhibit at the Gary L. Freeburg Gallery at Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus through Sept. 15.

    It’s time again for the faculty art exhibit at the Gary L. Freeburg Gallery at Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus, and it looks like it’s going to be an interesting year.

    The most intriguing offering is Celia Anderson’s large-format painting on paper called “Tricksters.” In it, ravens appear to be tearing up an American flag, scrap by scrap, and flying off with the pieces. It is left to the viewer to decide who or what the tricksters represent, I suppose, and most folks are likely to have an opinion about it. I love the piece for its more formal delights — the vibrant brushstrokes and well-handled composition create a work that is dynamic and entirely engaging. If ravens were to pick it apart, I think each scrap would be an amazing little painting.

    Right beside it sits a mixed-media piece by Kathleen Rolph, where a puppetlike version of a raven sits in a birch “tree,” and two adorable babies sit in a nest. From what I know about these types of events, it is likely synchronicity rather than planning at play, so it was fun to see. Continue reading

    Photos courtesy of Central Kenai Peninsula Photograph Collection. Ed Kimbrall and his son, Edward, pose with a large rainbow trout in front of Ed’s old pickup in 1960.

    When Marge Mullen drove home one day in 1998 and discovered three small cardboard beer boxes on her front porch, she had no idea where the contents of those boxes would lead her. Today the contents comprise a portion of an important historical collection that was just made available to public viewing this spring.

    The boxes contained a few odds and ends, but mainly photographs — piles of photographs, many of them dating back more than 30 years — and no note indicating who had delivered them, or why. Mullen carried the boxes inside and began examining the images. She found familiar scenes from peninsula history, in addition to dozens of photographs chronicling the devastation that the 1964 Good Friday Earthquake had wrought in Seward, Anchorage and along Turnagain Arm.

    A short time later, her telephone rang. The caller was Freddie Billingslea, who admitted to the surprise delivery. She told Mullen that the photos had been taken by Dick Mommsen, who, along with Billingslea and her husband, had begun the Kalifonsky Nordic Ski Club in the late 1960s. After Mommsen died, she found herself with his photos; Mullen’s affiliation with the Soldotna Historical Society may have made her seem the ideal candidate to hold onto and find some use for Mommsen’s pictures.

    “Why Freddie gave them to me, I don’t know,” Mullen said, “but that was the start of the whole thing. Shortly after that — I don’t know how the word got around — Mary Pat King from Jeff King’s guide service bought Loren Stewart’s old house, and down in the basement were these pingpong tables full of, again, old beer boxes — with cobwebs and spiders and mouse droppings.” Continue reading

    Photo by Naomi Klouda, Homer Tribune. Kenai Peninsula College anthropology professor Alan Boraas leads a tour through the now-abandoned Kalifornsky Village.

    An indentation in the earth indicates a home site dating back to A.D. 1200, a clue left behind by ancient Dena’ina peoples who once inhabited a now-abandoned village.

    Semi-subterranean homes were used by all Native Arctic and sub-Arctic peoples of Alaska, said anthropologist Alan Boraas, leading a village tour for his Kenai Peninsula College anthropology students. The house site is made more impressive by a square offshoot on the back of the earthen home, giving modern people a more intimate glimpse.

    “It could have been a back bedroom, or a bathing room where steam was used,” he said.

    The main room had benches on the side, a fire crib filled with sand and firewood at the center for what people craved: “Fireside therapy,” Boraas said.

    This is the first year Boraas has taught a long-distance education course available to students at KPC’s Kachemak Bay Campus, as well as students at Soldotna’s Kenai River Campus. Distance education was an experience that didn’t always sit right.

    “I couldn’t see my students’ eyes,” he lightly complained, standing now before most all of his 20 students at an abandoned graveyard. He had just read a story told by Peter Kalifornsky at the side of Kalifornsky’s grave.

    If ghosts are real, then it seemed amongst the drooping spruce boughs and dried leaves, at least one might be listening. This would be the preferred way to teach a class that focused on the Kenai Peninsula’s indigenous peoples — in person, around the actual sites, respectfully calling up stories heavy with meanings and now preserved, thanks to Kalifornsky’s memorizations.

    The long-distance class involved Boraas sitting at a table under the eye of a video camera while teaching his Kenai River Campus class. A television monitor in Homer broadcasts the lecture to students at the Kachemak Bay Campus. The tour was the first time they all met in person.

    That’s a lot different from oral tradition the anthropologist has enjoyed: his work with one of the last speakers of the Kenai Dena’ina.

    Kalifornsky, known as Uncle Pete to tribal members, was born in 1911 at Kalifornsky Village and died in Kenai in 1993. In addition to being a fluent speaker, he was a prolific writer. His 1991 “A Dena’ina Legacy: K’tl’egh’i Sukdu,” edited by James Kari and Boraas, is a collection of his writings between 1972 and 1990 and was a winner of the 1992 American Book Award from the Before Columbus Foundation.

    “Good Things Come in Threes,” by Patty Youngren, is part of a student show on display this month at Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus.

    There’s plenty to find interesting at the student exhibition currently on view at the Gary L. Freeburg Gallery at Kenai Peninsula College’s Kenai River Campus. The photography and pastel work are profuse and generally excellent, and the scant examples of nonwatercolor painting and printmaking on fiber are notable, as well.

    “Good Things Come in Threes,” an acrylic painting by Patty Youngren, is a lot of fun, with colorfully bold and dynamic painting defining something as mundane as three cans of paint. The heavy strokes pulling downward in the background make the harmless cans seem ominous and slightly unsettling. I respond well to any amount of conceptualism in art, and this one seems to be moving in that direction. Void of much of a sense of conceptualism, but interesting to look at, nonetheless, are Sherril Miller’s “Spawned” and Juanita Hillhouse’s “Kinetic Frog.” They are each examples of a polychromatic screen print.

    IMHS Metaphysics Institute – Premier Metaphysical University, Metaphysical Studies, Metaphysics PhD Degrees


    #

    I always knew I wanted my degree, but the traditional setup of college was a drag to me and every semester there was always an additional class that was required or an increase in tuition or both. I feel as if this program is designed for people like me who want to expand their thinking and be challenged without feeling dumb or getting into debt. I am extremely grateful for a degree program that allows me to simply think and to be myself. —Britney Bryant, USA

    IMHS is Fresh, Innovative, and Contemporary: [ Read More ]

    Metaphysics is about more than just the abstract; it is also about a successful life. The abstract will certainly stimulate your thinking and can lead to great spiritual development, but for spiritual development to be effective and meaningful, it must be activated by practical life-skills; powerful everyday tools that will enable you to have better relationships, better communication skills, better critical thinking skills, and more. IMHS gives you both the spiritual development and the practical life-skills you need for a balanced, successful life!

    IMHS is Powerful and Cutting-Edge: [ Read More ]

    The IMHS curriculum is based on the Life Leadership Paragon TM. an exclusive and elegant model for success that has changed countless lives for the better. It is only taught at our schools. For more than a decade, this model has been carefully crafted and developed into a powerful, cutting-edge system for personal growth and spiritual enlightenment. The Life Leadership Paragon TM also serves as the foundation for Life Leadership Coaching TM. a blend of life coaching and transpersonal spiritual counseling which is also only taught at our schools. Students specializing in Holistic Life Coaching or Spiritual Counseling will really appreciate this creative and highly effective approach to helping others!

    IMHS Gives You the Training and Skills You Need: [ Read More ]

    In addition to spiritual development and practical life-skills, IMHS actually gives students the skills they need to be successful in their chosen areas of specialization (major). Many of our students take additional courses in their areas of interest beyond the ones required for graduation because they have come to know that our courses are comprehensive and beneficial to their personal and professional development. IMHS graduates are well-equipped to go out and make a positive difference in the world!

    IMHS is Objective and Grounded: [ Read More ]

    Rather than obscure, fringy, and highly esoteric concepts, IMHS approaches metaphysics in an objective, grounded, and real-world manner while still keeping the door open to the great mysteries of consciousness and our Universe. As humanity evolves, many people are leaving the confines of old religious and social notions and seeking new paradigms that focus on the value and worth of the individual. This is why IMHS teaches a human-centered spiritual philosophy which does not surrender one’s power to anyone or anything else. It empowers, encourages, and builds people up. It refreshes the mind, spirit, and soul!

    Genuine, Bona-Fide, and Legal Degrees: [ Read More ]

    Our degrees are absolutely genuine, legal, and “real.” IMHS is not a diploma mill. Our degrees are non-secular (religiously-based) in nature and require effort on the student’s part. Non-secular degrees are neither better nor worse than traditional degrees; they are simply used for different purposes. Therefore, students can rest assured that the degree they earn is completely legal and “real,” and the title of “Doctor” can be used in front of their names. This applies to nearly every country in the free world–especially countries that protect religious freedom.

    Metaphysics for the 21st Century: [ Read More ]

    With the many demands of life in this day and age, most adults simply do not have the time to spend several years getting a degree. Nevertheless, many busy adults would like a degree to enhance their lives and careers. Therefore, we have simplified and streamlined our Metaphysics PhD program by offering Bachelor’s, Master’s, and Doctoral degrees in an accelerated format that takes less time to complete thus allowing students to begin using their degrees sooner. And the best part is that our degree program provides an excellent learning platform that is concentrated, comprehensive, and affordable. We think you’ll find this 21st Century approach to getting your Metaphysics PhD degree a refreshing change from the past century!

    Financial aid for military spouses in college

    The federal government offers several Financial Student Aid Programs. These programs offer you extremely low interest loans and grants (free money). Unlike the GI Bill, these programs are paid by the Dept. of Education through the school; however, like the GI Bill, Federal Student Aid is designed to assist you in meeting the cost of tuition, books, fees, and living expenses while you go to school. That means that once the school has taken its share, the remaining loan or grant balance goes to you.

    Financial Student Aid Eligibility

    It doesn’t matter whether you are active duty, reserve, veteran, retiree, on GI Bill, or not — you should be taking advantage of these programs. There are numerous examples of even senior active duty members receiving federal loans and large grants. Remember: Grants are gifts that you don’t repay!

    Eligibility for most federal student aid is based on financial need and on several other factors. The most basic eligibility requirements to receive federal student aid are as follows:

    • You must be a U.S. citizen or an eligible noncitizen,
    • You must have a valid Social Security number,
    • You must register (if you haven’t already) with the Selective Service, if you’re a male between the ages of 18 and 25,
    • You must maintain satisfactory academic progress (defined as having at least a 2.0 GPA and being on track to graduate within 150% of the normal timeframe) in college or career school, and
    • You must show you’re qualified to obtain a postsecondary education by:
      • having a high school diploma or General Educational Development (GED) certificate;
      • meeting other federally approved standards your state establishes; or
      • completing a high school education in a home school setting approved under state law.

    Readmission Requirements: Was your college enrollment interrupted when you were called to active duty? For information on returning to the college you previously attended, see the Dept. of Education Q A website for guidance on approaching your school when you re ready to reenroll.

    Applying for FSA

    Applying for federal student aid is quicker and easier than ever. You can complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at https://fafsa.ed.gov.

    Money Saving Tip: FAFSA is a Free Application for Federal Student Aid; however there are some websites that offer to complete the FAFSA for you, for upwards of $50. The FAFSA form only takes a relatively short time to complete. It is worth your time to complete it yourself.

    Every accredited school that is recognized by the Education Department will be eligible for some form of FSA. The school’s you select will send you information on how to get the funding you need to reach your education goals.

    Available Loans and Grants

    The following table gives you a quick breakdown on some of the types of loans and grants, applications, current interest rates and monetary limits:

    Online Bachelor of General Studies Degree and Education Programs

    Essential Information

    Similar to a major in liberal studies or liberal arts, a general studies degree does not train students for a specific career upon graduation, but it provides them with highly valued job qualifications, such as leadership, communication and critical thinking. Students can find these programs at many traditional four-year schools as well as some private online institutions. Most programs are fully available online, and they can lead to either a bachelor’s or an associate’s degree.

    Several universities give students credit toward the online general studies program for military service, work experience, completed college certificate programs or successful completion of exams, such as Advanced Placement (AP), College-Level Examination Programs (CLEP) and Defense Activity for Nontraditional Education Support (DANTES).

    Find schools that offer these popular programs

    • General Studies
    • Humanities
    • Liberal Arts and Sciences

    Bachelor’s in General Studies

    Online bachelor’s degrees in general studies can vary widely depending on the school, but students can typically tailor programs to their interests and goals. Some programs offer distance learners the option to focus their studies in multiple areas, such as business, education, sociology or English, among others.

    Schools usually require students in these programs to complete general education coursework, two to three minors and then fulfill the rest of the degree requirements with electives. Bachelor’s degrees take around four years to earn, but some programs will award an associate’s degree in general studies after two years of study.

    Course Topics

    Curricula in general studies programs encompass a wide range of disciplines. Students usually take one or more classes in arts and humanities, behavioral sciences, business administration, education, science and mathematics. A sample curriculum might include:

    • Classical studies
    • Philosophy
    • Biology
    • College mathematics
    • History
    • Economics
    • Sociology
    • Political science

    Online Learning

    Most distance learning general studies programs can be completed totally online. Schools often target working adults when designing these programs, which can allow flexibility with not only course options but also scheduling. For instance, online classes may be offered for a standard 16 weeks or in a more condensed 8-week format; others may be self-paced. These courses are usually interactive, allowing students to communicate with classmates and the instructor and submit assignments electronically via Blackboard or a similar content management system.

    In online bachelor’s degree programs in general studies, students have the opportunity to get a broad liberal arts education with a focus on a particular discipline of interest. The distance learning format is ideal for students with external scheduling constraints, like a full-time job.

    Ontario Fire College

    Ontario Fire College

    Background – In operation since 1949, the Ontario Fire College’s primary responsibility is to develop and deliver academically sound educational/training programs to meet the needs of both today’s and tomorrow’s fire service. The main objective of the Ontario Fire College programs and courses is to assist our student-learners to become the best-trained and most professional members of the Ontario fire service. We offer training and education programs which are based on the Ontario Fire Service Standards. Our courses are available to members of any Ontario municipal fire department, whether full-time or volunteer.

    Fire Chiefs or their designate must complete and sign a Training and Education Application Form for each student-learner they wish to register and fax the forms to the Office of the Registrar. Once the application is processed a confirming Status Report will be sent to the fire department.

    The Ontario Fire College continues to implement strategic initiatives to make high quality education and training accessible and available to fire service personnel. The Firefighter Curriculum, which was revised in 2008, is available to all municipal fire departments, and can be found on our Educational Materials website. See Communique #2006-19 for information on how to access this site. Associate Instructor pilot projects, agreements with other post-secondary educational institutions, off-campus delivery of OFC courses, extended use of OFC facilities, and increased numbers of course offerings are examples of these initiatives.

    In addition, partnerships with a growing number of fire service organizations, associations, colleges and universities are helping to meet the ongoing demand for fire service career-path education and training opportunities. On-campus initiatives such as improvements to the classroom and the training ground environments, and the acquisition of state-of-the-art equipment and training aids continue to enhance learning opportunities. The 15-station computer lab, located on the second floor of the residence building, complements the services of the Resource Centre in affording student-learners ready access to research-oriented learning.

    Why Are Basic College Courses Necessary?

    Basic college courses provide you with a broader learning experience.

    Many universities require each student to take a basic list of college courses to earn his diploma. While the specific courses and requirements differ from college to college, most schools focus on arts, humanities, English, writing, science and social studies. These core classes provide you with a foundation for reading, writing and critical reasoning. Core classes can also be entertaining and fulfilling. This is your opportunity to explore your interests in a variety of subjects and disciplines.

    Basic Principles

    Students take basic courses because it instills a range of knowledge and skills to take into the real world. The fundamental principles behind basic courses are to teach you how to acquire facts and to think critically and creatively. The broad range of courses ensures your college experience is not too narrowly focused on one topic. This guarantees a math major leaves college still being able to write while a foreign language major still can think analytically.

    Helps You Find A Major

    When you enter college, you might be unsure of your major. With basic courses covering a broad range of subjects, you are exposed to a variety of topics. You might find a topic that you want to explore further and even major in. You also might meet a professor with whom you build a strong relationship, providing you with a mentor for the remainder of college.

    Allows You To Grow

    Basic courses introduce you to people, ideas and experiences that you might never have found. Requiring all students to take basic courses cultivates an environment of openness, Katherine Bergeron, dean at Brown University, said in 2008. Each student is forced to explore different modes of thought and subjects. This provides a freedom to intellectual learning that otherwise would not have been in place.

    Picking Basic Courses

    Most universities offer a list of classes from which you can choose to fulfill your basic course requirements. At the University of Alabama, for example, students must take foreign language, computer science, humanities, literature, fine arts, history, social studies, natural science, mathematics and writing classes. At the University of Chicago, students must take humanities, civilization, arts, natural and mathematical sciences, social sciences, foreign language and physical education. At both schools, there are at least half a dozen classes to pick from to fulfill each requirement, which is typical of other universities. As a way to help you pick your classes, choose those that intrigue you or inspire passion. Meet with your academic advisor and design a plan with your basic courses so you can earn a minor without too many additional courses.

    Please be informed that our office will be closed on 26 June 2017, Monday for Hari Raya Puasa public holiday.

    “The HDHM education I received in SHATEC has prepared me well for the hotel industry. The scope of the curriculum; and the practical training I received contributed greatly to my ability to rise through the ladder in the industry. In addition, the SHATEC Spark, a value rooted in excellence, equipped me with the attitude to succeed. It was upon this firm foundation which I built and succeeded in my career in hotel management.”

    Arthur Kiong Chief Executive, Far East Hospitality

    The hospitality industry provides abundant opportunities. At the same time, it is a competitive industry. The HDHM programme by SHATEC prepared me well and I was ready to seize opportunities to showcase what I learnt, including taking on managerial responsibilities. And as I continue to grow in my career, my alma mater continues to be a part of it. Now, I am a mentor to young SHATEC students who aspire to succeed in the hospitality industry.”

    Mr Pek Chin Siong Vice President of Hotel Operations, Marina Bay Sands

    My brother and I have dreams about opening our own bistro someday. I felt that SHATEC was not only a reputable school but was a school that was capable of providing us with the necessary skills and knowledge to steer us onto that path. The teachers here have played a vital role and helped nurture us into young chefs and hoteliers.

    Brandon William White Diploma in Hotel Management

    If you’ve heard of the name SHATEC, you would know that there was where all the famous and successful chefs of today hail from. At SHATEC, the trainers have pushed me to go the distance and in the midst, I’ve learnt new strengths I never thought I possessed. I have the confidence to go forth from here to carving a niche out for myself in the hospitality industry.”

    Karen Alexis Malaga Tan Diploma in Pastry and Baking

    SHATEC has the kind of trainers who not only are able to impart critical skills and knowledge but have made lessons just as enjoyable at the same time. It has been a personal dream of mine to be able to set up my own café someday and run my own business. I have confidence that the culinary education here at SHATEC will help me realize the dream.

    Other RN schools in Orange County CA?

    I realize it’s not in OC, but Cal State LB is pretty close to you, and you could get your bachelor’s in two years in the trimester program. I’m in my sixth semester there and it has been challenging but great. If you really don’t like where you are, look into transferring. There isn’t a waiting list, and I know Saddleback just switched their admissions and now they don’t have a waiting list either. I think Goldenwest does, though, so that might not be your best bet. Good luck!

    I live in Aliso Viejo and I’m on a program at San Bernardino University. It is a long drive, but I don’t mind. I’m a partnership Riverside Community Hospital- CSUSB student and have all of my clinicals at RCH, where I would I will be working after graduating. This is an accelerated program and I will have my BSN in 2 years. I think that having BSN is better. I’ve heard that Long Beach is very impacted and it is hard to get in, so I did’t even try to apply. I’ve applied to San Marcos University, CSUSB and Saddleback. I got into CSUSM, CSUSB and didn’t get into Saddleback, but I didn’t care, since I was already going to CSUSB. It is much easier to get on a program at CSUSB because they accept 80 students 2 x a year. There is one transfer student in my class, she transferred from Loma Linda.

    i really did not want to deal w/a bachelors right now. i already have a ba from years ago, so i just wanted the rn. i heard that saddleback was crazy hard like cypress. is the time commitment outside of class insane? this is my typical tues: class from 800-1130, drive 40 min to hosp to p/u assign, get pat. and fill out paper work for about 1 1/2-2 hrs, drive home 45-1hr, eat dinner, start prep work for oh 3-5 hrs. go to bed hopefullly sleep 6 hrs (most stu sleep w/only 3 or 4, but i refuse, i’m too old ), wed. get up 430, work 630-1600, go home hr drive home, eat, home work 3-5 hrs. hellish, i’m telling you. is this normal for you all? thanks for the info!

    that sounds about normal. i’m attending csulb’s nursing program, but i live in mission viejo (south oc) and have taken classes at saddleback.

    have u tried looking into santa ana college?

    you mentioned you have a BA. some colleges have a 15 month program to get a second bachelor’s in nursing. it’s just as tedious as getting your associate’s degree in nursing too, but at least you’re getting a higher degree for the same work.

    I go to school only 2 times a week T-Th. Last quarter I had clinicals from 6:45 to 12:00 and a lecture from 14:00 to 15:50. Only 7 units, where at Saddleback there are 15 units/semester. Next quarter I will have 11 units and the same days of the week. The clinicals will be the same, but the lecture will be from 13:00 to 17:50. I also have BS degree and I’m not very young. If you will apply to CSULB, they will only consider you for the accelerated 1 y 4 mo program, which is very hard, my friend is on this program.

    saddleback doesn’t have 15 units of nursing a semester. that’s only if you include general education, which many students who enter have already fulfilled. saddleback has an average of 7 units of core nursing a semester.

    The Princeton Review s College Ratings

    Academics

    How hard students work and how much they get back for their efforts, on a scale of 60 99. This rating is calculated from student survey results and statistical information reported by administrators. Factors weighed include how many hours students study outside of the classroom and the quality of students the school attracts. We also considered students’ assessments of their professors, class size, student teacher ratio, use of teaching assistants, amount of class discussion, registration, and resources. Please note that if a school has an Academic Rating of 60* (sixty with an asterisk), it means that the school did not report to us a sufficient number of the statistics that go into the rating by our deadline.

    Admissions Selectivity

    This rating measures how competitive admissions are at the school. This rating is determined by several institutionally reported factors, including: the class rank, standardized test scores, and high school GPA of entering freshmen; the percentage of students who hail from out-of-state; and the percentage of applicants accepted. This rating is given on a scale of 60 99. Please note that if a school has an Admissions Selectivity Rating of 60* (sixty with an asterisk), it means that the school did not report to us enough of the statistics that go into the rating in order for us to accurately measure its admissions selectivity.

    Financial Aid

    This rating measures how much financial aid a school awards and how satisfied students are with that aid, on a scale of 60 99. This rating is based on school-reported data on the percentage of students who were determined to have need and received aid, the percentage of need met for those students, and the percentage of students whose need was fully met. Student survey data that measures students’ satisfaction with the financial aid they receive is also considered. Please note that if a school has a Financial Aid Rating of 60* (sixty with an asterisk), it means that the school did not report to us all of the statistics that go into the rating by our deadline.

    Fire Safety

    This rating measures how well prepared a school is to prevent or respond to campus fires, on a scale of 60 99 .

    We asked all the schools we annually collect data from to answer several questions about their efforts to ensure fire safety for campus residents. We developed the questions in consultation with the Center for Campus Fire Safety (www.campusfiresafety.org ), a nonprofit organization devoted to reducing the loss of life from fire at our nation’s campuses.

    The questions cover:

    1) The percentage of student housing sleeping rooms protected by an automatic fire sprinkler system with a fire sprinkler head located in the individual sleeping rooms.

    2) The percentage of student housing sleeping rooms equipped with a smoke detector connected to a supervised fire alarm system.

    3) The number of malicious fire alarms that occur in student housing per year.

    4) The number of unwanted fire alarms that occur in student housing per year.

    5) The banning of certain hazardous items and activities in residence halls, like candles, smoking, halogen lamps, etc.

    6) The percentage of student housing building fire alarm systems that, if activated, result in a signal being transmitted to a monitored location on campus or the fire department.

    Colleges that did not supply answers to a sufficient number of these safety questions for us to fairly compare them to other colleges receive a Fire Safety Rating of 60* (sixty with an asterisk). The schools have an opportunity to update their fire safety data every year and will have their fire safety ratings recalculated and published annually.

    Quality of Life

    This rating is a measure of how happy students are with their lives outside the classroom, on a scale of 60 99. We weighed several factors, including students’ assessments of their overall happiness; the beauty, safety, and location of the campus; the comfort of dorms; the quality of food; the ease of getting around campus and dealing with administrators; the friendliness of fellow students; the interaction of different student types; and the quality of the school’s relationship with the local community. Please note that if a school has a Quality of Life Rating of 60* (sixty with an asterisk), it means that the school did not report to us all of the statistics that go into the rating by our deadline.

    Green

    This rating, on a scale of 60 99. provides a comprehensive measure of a school’s performance as an environmentally aware and prepared institution. Specifically, it includes 1) whether students have a campus quality of life that is both healthy and sustainable, 2) how well a school is preparing students for employment in the clean-energy economy of the 21st century as well as for citizenship in a world now defined by environmental concerns and opportunities and 3) how environmentally responsible a school’s policies are.

    Additionally, The Princeton Review, the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE) and Sierra magazine have collaborated on an effort to streamline the reporting process for institutions that choose to participate in various higher education sustainability assessments. The intent of this initiative is to reduce and streamline the amount of time campus staff spend tracking sustainability data and completing related surveys.

    To address this issue, these four groups have worked to establish the Campus Sustainability Data Collector (CSDC). The CSDC is based on the STARS Reporting Tool and is available for all schools (free of charge) that would like to submit data to these groups in one single survey. Please find more information here: https://www.princetonreview.com/green-data-partnership .

    We asked all the schools we annually collect data from to answer questions about their efforts to provide (and continually develop) an environmentally beneficial student experience. The questions were created in consultation with ecoAmerica, a research- and partnership-based environmental nonprofit that convened an expert committee to design this comprehensive ranking system. Colleges that did not supply answers to a sufficient number of the questions for us to fairly compare them to other schools received a Green Rating of 60*. The schools have an opportunity to update their sustainability data every year and will have their ratings recalculated and published annually.

    Questions it covers include:

    • What is the percentage of food expenditures that goes toward local, organic or otherwise environmentally preferable food?
    • Does the school offer programs including mass transit programs, bike sharing, facilities for bicyclists, bicycle and pedestrian plans, car sharing, a carpool discount, carpool/vanpool matching, cash-out of parking, prohibiting idling, local housing, telecommuting, and a condensed workweek?
    • Does the school have a formal committee with participation from students that is devoted to advancing sustainability on campus?
    • Are school buildings that were constructed or underwent major renovations in the past three years LEED certified?
    • What is a school’s overall waste-diversion rate?
    • Does the school have an environmental studies major, minor or concentration?
    • Do the school’s students graduate from programs that include sustainability as a required learning outcome or include multiple sustainability learning outcomes?
    • Does the school have a formal plan to mitigate its greenhouse gas emissions?
    • What percentage of the school’s energy consumption is derived from renewable resources?
    • Does the school employ a dedicated full-time (or full-time equivalent) sustainability officer?

    Online Colleges For Military Students

    You’re serving in the military, and you want to continue your education at an online college.

    Problem: As a military student, you’re facing an unpredictable schedule, at best.

    GetEducated.com surveyed military advisors at online colleges to put together these helpful tips that showcase what to look for in an online college before you enroll.

    Tip 1: Look for online colleges for military students that will be flexible if you are called away

    If you are in the military, you may be deployed without warning. Your online college needs to be sensitive to this issue. Find out in advance what the school’s policy is regarding unpredictable absences and homework delays.

    For instance, at Columbia College (based in Missouri), a military student who didn’t have advance warning and is deployed while taking online college classes can request an incomplete or an excused withdrawal.

    In some cases military students may even be given more time to finish their assignments, says Gary Massey, Associate Dean for Adult Higher Education at Columbia Online.

    “We will deal with things that are out of their control,” says Massey.

    Similarly, military students at Colorado Technical University can expect flexibility from instructors, says Arthur Macias, Senior National Admissions Advisor of the school’s military division.

    If a military student is called away for a few days and can’t get to a computer, “our instructors will let them turn it in later if that’s what they need to do,” says Macias.

    “When dealing with military personnel, you have to realize you’re also dealing with the unexpected,” says Randi Reich Cosentino, senior vice president of academic administration at Strayer University. <>

    Strayer “freezes” courses if military students are deployed or transferred. The students can then resume the course when they are able to, without having to start the course over again.

    “This gives them peace of mind,” Cosentino says, “so personnel don’t hesitate in signing up for courses.”

    Tip 2: Make sure your online course doesn’t require “real time” participation

    Flexible scheduling is key for a military student enrolled in online college classes. Be wary of classes with live lectures and “synchronous” or real-time discussions, especially if you are in another time zone, halfway around the world.

    Some schools offer live lectures—but also provide downloadable versions for students who can’t make it. This is the case with Colorado Technical.

    “We archive lectures for all students,” says Macias.

    Tip 3: Look for an online military college that offers easy, 24/7 access to information

    Depending on where you are stationed, you might not have access to a computer. You also might not be able to phone the United States, especially if a school’s customer service lines operate only on a 9 to 5, U.S. schedule.

    These days many online education schools offer the ability to use cellphones to download class material, check assignments, message instructors, and receive grades.

    For example, says Macias, Colorado Technical offers “CTU Mobile” —a cellphone interface that allows easy access to information about a student’s academic work.

    Many online colleges staff military bases with representatives so military students can easily access a real live human being if they encounter concerns about program access.

    Others, such as Colorado Technical, offer round-the-clock phone support with financial aid and admissions advisors, as well as web chat functionality.

    Tip 4: See if your college offers downloadable e-books or CD-ROMs, which will save you from having to tote heavy books from unit to unit

    Macias says military students ask: ‘’We already have 50 pounds of life supplies in the field; if I’m moving from one unit to another, what do I do?'”

    CTU ships books through military post five weeks before classes start, says Macias. Undergraduate and associate degree students are provided with e-books, but graduate students are issued copies digitally and in hardcover (when they are able to receive them).

    Strayer offers a majority of its books as e-books, says Reich, with chapters available online. Military Students primarily use laptops to access these texts. “We do make some lectures downloadable to the iPhone, but it’s not a large contingent,” says Cosentino.

    Excelsior College, on the other hand, offers CD-ROM-based courses. “They were designed for the military and they work very well for servicemembers who were deployed and don’t have Internet connections,” says Sue Dewan, executive director of the Center for Military Education at Excelsior.

    Some students prefer “real” books, especially older students. American Military University mails textbooks to deployed online students, says Jim Sweizer, vice president of military education.

    “For many years, we did provide textbooks to students and still do for the majority of classes. You get a mix of students—the older ones tend to like the textbooks and the younger ones like the books in electronic fashion.”

    Sweizer worries that students who depend on downloading books electronically might be without texts if they can’t get Internet access. On the other hand, he says, ff the school were to provide pre-loaded handheld devices, it couldn’t put as much information on as it could provide on a website.

    “The amount of coursework that you can insert into these handheld devices is not as tech-savvy as what you can do if it’s in an electronic classroom over the Internet,” he says. Also, course materials on handhelds aren’t interactive, while web courses can offer this functionality—letting online military students feel like they are part of a classroom experience, even when they are in a war zone.

    Majors

    Albright’s ADP curriculum features an accelerated seminar format with intense use of the Internet as well as additional computer technology. Interaction between students is emphasized and much of this collaboration involves applied group activities.

    While traditional classes meet 40-44 hours per semester, Albright’s ADP courses meet for four hours per evening for five to seven weeks. Remaining class time is fulfilled by a combination of Internet usage and independent study.

    Through a special partnership with Reading Area Community College, Delaware County Community College, Harrisburg Area Community College, Lehigh Carbon Community College, Montgomery County Community College, Northampton Community College, and Warren County Community College, most associate degrees (A.A. or A.S.) from these colleges transfer fully to Albright ADP (and acceptance is automatic if all Albright transfer admissions criteria are met.)

    Crime & Justice: The accelerated program in crime and justice involves an analysis of criminal deviance and its roots, plus an in-depth understanding of our criminal justice system’s successes and failures. Unlike other criminal justice programs, students are not trained specifically for police work. Rather, students are educated in the academic study of crime, criminology and justice in preparation for a variety of positions within the criminal justice system.

    Digital Communications: Albright College offers one of the only evening accelerated-hybrid programs in Digital Communications in the area. Focus on strategic communication across media platforms including publications, videos, and websites in the Albright College Digital Communications program.

    Computer and Information Systems: The accelerated program in information systems is based on common structures and degree programs in the United States and Canada. It also meets the recommendation of the Association for Computing Machinery, which sets a variety of standards in technology fields, as well as graduate study programs.

    Organizational Behavior / Applied Psychology: The accelerated program in organizational behavior / applied psychology prepares students for a wide variety of careers in social services, management, human resources, training and development. This major also provides students with a strong foundation for entering a graduate program.

    Information Systems and Management: Albright s distinctive new major in information systems and management (ISAM) is designed to provide students with both the technical skills and the business acumen required to excel in information systems and business environments.

    5 A.S. degree awarded through a cooperative program with the School of
    Health Related Professions at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey

    6 A.A.S. degree awarded through a cooperative program with Brookdale Community College


    The academic programs offered by Mercer County Community College are among the most diversified and comprehensive in the country. Included are transfer programs that prepare students for entry into baccalaureate programs and career programs that prepare students for immediate employment after graduation.

    The terms “transfer” or “career” simply describe the primary objective of the program. Many transfer graduates have been successful in gaining employment upon graduation. Many graduates of career programs have been successful in transferring to four-year colleges, with many of their MCCC credits being accepted.

    In general, both kinds of degree programs require no more than 66 credits for graduation.


    Because Mercer is committed to promoting intellectual development, aesthetic appreciation, and cultural awareness, every program of study includes a general education component. This component, addressed through a variety of courses, focuses on reading analytically, communicating ideas clearly, solving problems, and developing a broad base of knowledge. Students are given the opportunity to develop analytical, synthetic/creative, and evaluative thinking; scientific reasoning; artistic response and expression; historical consciousness; cultural awareness; and sensitivity to the contemporary world.


    Transfer degree (A.A. A.F.A. or A.S.) programs are designed primarily to enable students to enter the third year of baccalaureate study at four-year colleges. The largest student enrollments in transfer degree programs are in humanities and social science, business administration, education, criminal justice, and nursing. Other transfer degree programs range from architecture, communication and visual arts to engineering science and plant science.

    For many students, the transfer experience is made easier by “dual admission” and “program articulation” agreements between Mercer and other colleges.


    Career degree (A.A.S.) programs are designed primarily to prepare graduates for entry-level employment in an occupation which requires both theoretical knowledge and practical skills. Mercer has A.A.S. programs as varied as accounting, aviation, chef apprenticeship, electronics, ornamental horticulture, microcomputer systems administration, television, funeral service, and computer graphics.

    Two engineering technology programs function both as transfer degree and career degree programs, with slightly more than half of all graduates transferring to four-year technology programs and others finding employment. Many employed students use career programs to gain advanced positions in their chosen field or to change careers. Some other A.A.S. programs also provide a basis for transfer to four-year colleges; a student may lose credits, however, if he or she transfers to an unrelated program of study.


    Many students enroll at Mercer for purposes other than earning a degree or certificate. The college offers four enrollment categories for such students:

    • Other college — Students take courses at Mercer to fulfill program requirements at another college.
    • Job Related — Students take courses specifically selected to enhance knowledge and skills for current or future employment.
    • Exploratory — Students are undecided about which degree or certificate program they intend to pursue. They may take courses from several program areas to help them select.
    • Personal — Students take courses for other reasons. Advisors at each campus help non-degree students select courses.


    Mercer offers a comprehensive program for students who are learning English as a second language. The multilevel sequence consists of two pre-credit and eight credit courses that emphasize grammar, speech, reading and writing skills. The free ESL placement test, arranged through the ESL Learning Center, should be completed at least two weeks before registration for classes.

    The noncredit preparatory courses are offered through the English Language Institute (ELI) at the James Kerney and West Windsor campuses. Contact ELI at the James Kerney Campus or the ESL Learning Center at the West Windsor Campus for further information.


    The LPN-RN advanced placement option offers licensed practical nurses (LPNs) the opportunity to gain experiential credit for their LPN license and receive credit for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). Applicants must possess a high school diploma (or equivalent), have graduated from an accredited LPN school, possess a valid New Jersey LPN license and complete all the prerequisite course requirements for the nursing curriculum.

    Admission to the professional phase of the program requires a minimum GPA of 2.5 and a passing score on the HESI Admission Assessment Exam. Six credits are given for Fundamental Concepts of Nursing (NRS 110). The student is then able to enroll in Alterations in Health I (NRS 120), Alterations in Health II (NRS 121), or Concepts of Mental Health Nursing (NRS 123). Students must earn a minimum grade of C in all nursing, science, and mathematics courses to graduate.

    Please note that admission to either of the LPN-RN Advanced Placement program options are on a space available basis only.

    Students who complete the college’s Nursing program earn the Associate in Science (A.S.) degree and eligibility to take the National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX) for Registered Nurses (RNs).


    Cooperative education integrates textbook and classroom learning with work experience. Several academic programs offer cooperative education components. The program affords many advantages to students who are able to earn an income while attending college and earn college credits for their cooperative education experiences. In addition, many graduates find employment easier to obtain if they have had prior work experiences.

    A successful co-op experience requires careful delineation of learning objectives and employer willingness to support them. The college assists students in defining objectives and obtaining co-op positions.

    We see education as a springboard to opportunities for personal growth and development, rather than a designated track to a specific job, career or even industry. Our programmes will benefit a wide group of people as qualifications in teaching and management are needed across the country and even beyond.

    Welcome to our website, and thank you for your interest in our Christian college and the education services we provide. We are a Christian College of Education affiliated with the University of Zambia. We strive to provide the best quality of education to enrich the students so as they will serve others with love and care to show light in the world of darkness and ignorance. Allow me to say a few things to help you decide whether we are the right College for you.

    Apart from the experience that comes after 20 years, the driving force behind our college is the dedicated and unwavering support that our staff provides to our students. Yes, the programmes we offer carry high respect and standards based on Christian principles, are globally transportable, our environment is comfortable and we are conveniently located.

    Approximately 85% of our full time students are pre-service, and about 95% of our students studying through the distant mode are in-service teachers, who are improving their qualifications to a Diploma certificate in teaching in secondary schools in Zambia and beyond. We are continuously exploring opportunities to improve and expand our services to our students, just as we continuously review our curriculum to keep pace with educational developments.

    As we continue to contribute to the population of the educated, we are confident in our knowledge that these are the people who will make the biggest impact upon their communities, the organizations they will serve and the Church of Jesus Christ at large. Thank you once again for your interest. Please enjoy your preview of our institution.

    With best wishes,
