This is UAM

The University of Arkansas-Monticello is located three miles south of

the city of Monticello on a wooded campus adjacent to United States

Highway 425. Monticello, the county seat of Drew County, is located 100

miles southeast of Little Rock and 85 miles north of Monroe, Louisiana.

Situated in the pine forests of Southeast

Arkansas on the edge of the rich Mississippi

delta, the University is ideally located to serve

the state’s educational needs and provides an

excellent setting for the state’s only School of

Forest Resources. Included in the University’s

1,600 acres are 1,036 acres of forest land used

for research, management and instruction, and

300 acres devoted to agricultural teaching and

research. To the west and south are vast forest

lands managed by a rapidly growing private

forest industry to produce wood and paper

products. To the east, farmers raise cotton, rice

and soybeans in the fertile Mississippi delta.

History Of The University

The University of Arkansas-Monticello

was established in 1909 by an act of the General

Assembly of the State of Arkansas to serve the

educational needs of Southeast Arkansas.

Originally called the Fourth District Agricultural

School, the University opened its doors

September 14, 1910. In 1925, the General

Assembly authorized the school’s name to be

changed to Arkansas Agricultural and Mechanical

College. A & M received accreditation as a

junior college in 1928 and as a four-year

institution in 1940.

Arkansas A & M became part of the

University of Arkansas system July 1, 1971. The

University is governed by the University of

Arkansas Board of Trustees, which also oversees

the operation of institutions in Batesville,

Fayetteville, Helena, Hope, Little Rock, and

Pine Bluff.

academic discipline or class assignment, the peer

tutors provide feedback and suggestions which

will help students understand the essential

elements of academic writing.

Writing Center tutors can help students

generate ideas, develop a thesis, organize

material, and revise early drafts. Students are

also assisted in learning about grammar, style,

and clarity; learning about their own writing

process; and learning how to improve proofreading

skills. The Center’s staff and tutors

work one-on-one with students on a variety of

writing projects: compositions, reports, outlines,

business letters, research, and fiction.

Additionally, the Writing Center has 25

networked computers with Internet capability.

Tutors can also assist students with World Wide

Web research and word processing.

Any student who falsifies admission

materials or misrepresents eligibility for

admission will be subject to immediate

dismissal from the University.

University requirements include (1) a

completed application for admission, (2) college

entrance exam scores, and (3) official academic

law include (1) proof of immunization against

measles and rubella for applicants born after

January 1, 1957, and (2) selective service

with selective service must sign a statement

attesting that they have done so or are exempt

from doing so. This statement appears on the

application for admission and must be

completed by all male applicants.

College Entrance Exam Scores

The ACT is preferred; however, SAT

scores will be accepted. Scores should be

provided from an exam within the previous five

years. Test scores must be sent by the testing

agency or be recorded on an official transcript.

The Office of Admissions will provide testing

college entrance examination within the

previous five years. The institutional codes are

ACT 0110 and SAT 6008.

High school students are advised to take

college entrance exams no later than the first

half of their senior year. Students should

request that the scores be forwarded to the

University of Arkansas-Monticello by the

testing agency.


14

Arkansas-Monticello

Admission

Transfer students who have not completed

general education mathematics and/or English

requirements with a grade of “C” or higher

must provide college entrance exam scores.

Transcripts

Each freshman student must submit an

official copy of his/her transcript from an

accredited high school showing a diploma has

been earned. The GED certificate and scores

will be accepted in lieu of the high school

transcript. Transfer students must request that

official transcripts be mailed directly to the

Office of Admissions from each institution

attended.

Readmission of Former Students

A student who has attended UAM in

previous years but has not attended for one

semester or more is required to complete an

application for admission and submit official

transcripts of college work from all institutions

attended since the last enrollment at the

University. Because admission requirements are

subject to change, additional documents may be

required.

Former University students who have

attempted fewer than 30 hours of credit and

who have not attended a college or university

during the last two years (24 months) will be

placed under the catalog in effect when they reenroll

at UAM. The catalog chosen and the

student’s graduation may not span a period of

more than six years.

Freshman Early Admission

Students who submit an application for

admission, ACT scores, proof of immunization

against measles and rubella, and a six- or sevensemester

transcript may be admitted during the

senior year. Following graduation, the student

will need to request that a final transcript

reflecting all credits, grades, and graduation date

be sent to the University. These students will be

invited to preregistration opportunities.

Transfer Admission

In addition to general admission requirements,

the student who has attended other

colleges must assure that transcripts of all work

attempted from all colleges attended be sent

from those institutions directly to the UAM

Office of Admissions.

Transfer students must be eligible to return


Arkansas-Monticello

Admission

to the institution previously attended. If either

the cumulative or previous semester’s grade

point is less than a 2.00, then the student will

be admitted on Conditional Academic Standing

as described in the Academic Regulations

chapter in this catalog. Transfer students are

also subject to the Transfer Policy section in the

Academic Regulations chapter.

15

Pre-Freshman Admission

Academically capable students may register

for college courses at the University prior to

high school graduation. As a pre-freshman, a

student must provide the Office of Admissions

with documents required for admission,

including a current school transcript and a letter

from the superintendent, principal, or counselor

indicating that the student has the ability to

succeed in college-level work. College entrance

test scores are required if the student wishes to

enroll in an English or mathematics class.

Students who take college courses at UAM

while they are still in high school will be

required to meet all admission requirements for

beginning freshmen upon graduation from high

school. Courses taken while a pre-freshman will

then apply toward a degree program at UAM,

or they may be transferred to other colleges or

universities. The Office of the Registrar will

report credits and grades earned to high school

officials when the student provides a written

request.

Whether or not courses taken at the

University satisfy graduation requirements from

high school is a determination made exclusively

by high school administrators where the student

is in attendance.

Special Student Admission

An individual who does not wish to pursue

an academic degree but would like to enroll for

a limited number of courses for enrichment or

job enhancement may enroll as a special

student. A student may be admitted to this

category with an application for admission and

proof of immunization against measles and

rubella. To enroll in an English or mathematics

course, the student must provide college

entrance test scores.

A special student may not normally

attempt more than six hours in any single term

and may not declare a major. Credits earned

from other institutions may not be transferred

until the student meets all admission requirements

to the University. A student on

suspension from any college or university will

not be allowed to receive special student status.

After completing 18 hours, the special student

may be required to complete all admission

requirements and undertake a program leading

to a degree.

Admission of Visiting Students

Students who are enrolled in another

institution of higher education (to which they

intend to return) and who wish to take courses

at the University of Arkansas-Monticello must

file an application for admission, supply proof

of immunization against measles and rubella,

and provide a letter of good standing from the

institution they are attending.

Visiting student status is limited in

duration and the number of hours that can be

accumulated. The visiting student who

subsequently decides to pursue a degree at

UAM must submit all documentation required


16

Arkansas-Monticello

Admission

of transfer students and request a change of

status in the Office of the Registrar.

Post-Baccalaureate Admission

Those who have already attained at least a

bachelor’s degree and who wish to take

additional undergraduate courses are required to

complete an application for admission, provide

an official transcript from the institution

granting the highest degree earned, and provide

proof of immunization.

Provisional Admission

Provisional admission may be extended to

the student who has not completed the

admission process at the time of registration.

The admission requirements must be met no

later than 15 class days after the first day of the

fall or spring semester or not later than 5 class

days after the first class day of a summer term.

Students who do not meet the deadline may be

administratively withdrawn from classes by the

Registrar with no refund of tuition or fees, and

they will be ineligible to register provisionally

for a future semester.

Admission of International Students

UAM is authorized under federal law to

enroll non-immigrant alien students on “F-1”

student visas. Citizens of foreign countries who

wish to attend UAM should request admission

information from the Office of Admissions.

The application for admission should be

completed and submitted no later than six

months prior to the beginning of the semester

of registration. All supporting documentation

must be received at least three months prior to

the beginning of the semester of registration to

be fully admitted to the University. There is a

$30 non-refundable application fee for

international students.

International applicants must meet the

following requirements:

1. Submit a completed application for

admission.

2. Submit college entrance exam scores

(ACT or SAT).

3. Submit certified copies of all of the

student’s academic records. The applicant’s

academic background must be at least equivalent

to the U.S. high school graduation, as

determined by the University. All documents

submitted must be the original or a certified

copy of the original document and must be

translated into the English language.

4. If the applicant’s native language is other

than English, an official transcript of the score


Arkansas-Monticello

Admission

17

for the Test of English as a Foreign Language

(TOEFL) must be submitted directly from the

Educational Testing Service. For undergraduate

applicants, the required score for the paperbased

test is 500, and the required score for the

computer-based test is 173. For graduate

applicants, the required score for the paperbased

test is 550, and the required score for the

computer-based test is 213.

5. The applicant must submit a certified

statement from a financial institution certifying

that the applicant has on deposit a minimum

amount that will cover the cost of attending

UAM for at least one academic year. The

current budget for one year is approximately

$10,000.

6. The applicant must be in good physical

health, as certified by a licensed physician. An

international applicant must purchase health

insurance and present evidence before enrollment.

Proof of immunization against measles

and rubella are required by the state of

Arkansas.

7. The INS Form I-20A, “Certificate of

Eligibility for Non-Immigrant F-1 Student

Status,” will be issued only after eligibility for

admission has been established. The determination

will be made after all documentation has

been received and processed, at least three

months prior to the beginning of classes.

8. International students who are seeking

admission as transfers from another college or

university in the U.S. must also submit to UAM

a Form I-20AB, or other appropriate form,

which must be approved by the U.S. Department

of Justice, Immigration, and Naturalization

Service for transfer purposes. Transfer

students must be in good standing at the

institution from which they are transferring,

and they must have a minimum grade point

average of 2.00.

9. It is the responsibility of the international

student to become familiar with the

regulations of the Immigration and Naturalization

Service (INS) and to assume responsibility

for complying with these regulations. It is the

University’s intent to follow all regulations

required by the INS.

10. All graduate applicants will be required

to submit scores for the GRE. Graduate

students should consult the graduate section of

this catalog for details.

Residency for Few Purposes

A student’s residency status for fee

purposes is determined at the time of admission

according to the policy established by the

University of Arkansas Board of Trustees.

Copies of the residency policy and petitions for

change of residency status are available on

request from the Registrar’s Office. Petitions are

reviewed by the Registrar and must be

Arkansas-Monticello

Fees and Expenses

submitted at the Registrar’s Office at least two

weeks prior to the beginning of the semester for

which the change is desired.

Payment of Accounts

All charges are due and payable in advance

to the Cashier’s Office. Cashier’s Office hours

are 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Monday through

Friday. Tuition and fees must be paid in full at

the time of registration. The University offers

payment plans for room and board during the

fall and spring semesters. Students with unpaid

accounts will not be eligible for transcripts or

re-admission to any term until their accounts

are paid in full. Personal checks will be accepted

from students with no record of returned

checks. A charge of $20 will be assessed for

returned checks, and the student will be subject

to revocation of registration.

REMINDER: By enrolling in classes,

either at early registration or regular registration,

the student creates a financial liability in

the amount of the fees, tuition, and other

charges pertinent to the enrollment process.

This financial liability can be eliminated only by

the following: payment from the student or

his/her agent -or- formal cancellation of the

enrollment by the student before the semester

begins. Failure to attend class(es) does not

reduce the liability. Failure to receive financial

aid does not reduce the liability. Students must

withdraw in person or by written communication.

Financial Assistance

The Office of Financial Aid is located on the second floor of the Babin

Business Center. To contact Financial Aid, write to UAM Box 3470,

Monticello, AR 71656 or call (870) 460-1050. Our toll-free number is

1-800-226-2643.

A variety of financial assistance packages is

available to University students. The four

categories of aid are: grants, loans, part-time

employment, and scholarships.

The Financial Aid Office, located in the

Babin Business Center, administers Federal

grants, loans, and part-time employment, which

are described below.

Grants are the first type of aid awarded to

eligible students. If eligibility for assistance still

exists, students may be awarded part-time

employment or loans to meet their individual

needs.

Students may apply for all Federal aid

programs and the Arkansas State Student

Assistance Grant by completing one application.

The application packet can be obtained from

the UAM Financial Aid Office, P.O. Box 3470,

Monticello, AR, 71656 or by calling (870) 460-

1050. Students are encouraged to apply early, as

some types of aid are limited in funding.

Verification of applicant data may be

required. The Financial Aid Office will request any

required verification documentation. This

documentation must be submitted within two

weeks of the request. No financial assistance will

be awarded until the documentation is received

and the applicant data is determined to be correct.

Federal financial assistance will be awarded

and the student notified when the application

for assistance is complete. Disbursements will

be made by crediting the student’s account for

the Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental

Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG),

Arkansas Student Assistance Grant, and Federal

Perkins Loan awards each term the student is

eligible. Earnings from federal and institutional

work-study are paid to students once each

month by check. Work-study checks must be

endorsed and applied to a student’s account if a

balance is owed. Students may have financial

awards which exceed their institutional

expenses. Students should refer to the “Schedule

of Classes” for each term to determine when

refunds will be disbursed. Federal Stafford

Student Loan and Federal PLUS Loan funds

must be applied, in full, to the student’s

account.

Grants

The FEDERAL PELL GRANT is

designed to provide financial assistance to

students seeking postsecondary education.

Federal Pell Grants are intended to be the

“ground floor” of the financial aid package and

may be combined with other forms of aid in


26

Arkansas-Monticello

Financial Assistance

order to meet the needs of students. Student

eligibility is primarily based on a “financial need

formula” developed by the U.S. Department of

Education. Since the Federal Pell Grant is a

grant award, it is not to be repaid.

The FEDERAL SUPPLEMENTAL

EDUCATIONAL OPPORTUNITY GRANT

(FºEOG) is designed to provide financial

assistance to students who have exceptional

financial need. These awards do not have to be

repaid.

The ARKANSAS STATE STUDENT

ASSISTANCE GRANT is available to students

whose financial need has been determined by

the application for financial aid. This grant is

made available only to residents of the State of

Arkansas and does not have to be repaid.

Loans

The FEDERAL PERKINS LOAN

PROGRAM (formerly NDSL) assists students

by providing a low-interest education loan to

students qualifying on the basis of “financial

need.” Repayment of this loan may extend over

a ten-year period beginning nine months after

the borrower ceases to be a full-time or halftime

student. Interest (5%) starts at the

beginning of the repayment period and is

charged on the unpaid balance of the loan

principal. For borrowers who become teachers

in certain types of schools (or teach in fields of

expertise that have a shortage of qualified

teachers), there are cancellation provisions.

Cancellation provisions may also be extended to

full-time nurses, medical technicians, law

enforcement or corrections officers, providers of

early childhood intervention services, and child/

family service agency workers. Also, borrowers

who serve in specified military duty may be

eligible for cancellation provisions.

The FEDERAL STAFFORD LOAN

PROGRAM (formerly Guaranteed Student

Loan) can provide either subsidized or

unsubsidized low interest loans to students

enrolled at least half-time. Subsidized loan

funds can be awarded to students who have

“unmet need” remaining when all other types of

aid have been awarded. The Federal government

pays the interest on these subsidized loans

while the student is enrolled and through the

grace period. Unsubsidized loan funds might

be awarded to students who have no “unmet

need” remaining after all other types of aid have

been awarded. The Federal government does

not pay the interest on these unsubsidized loans

while the student is enrolled. The student can

choose to pay the interest or the interest can be

capitalized. Some students might be awarded a

combination of subsidized and unsubsidized

loan funds. Repayment of these loans may

extend over a 10-year period beginning six

months after the borrower ceases to be enrolled

at least half-time.

The FEDERAL PLUS LOAN PRO-

GRAM makes loans available to the parents of

dependent undergraduate students. Each

borrower must use the loan funds to pay for the

student’s educational costs. Unlike other Federal

Family Education Loan Programs, PLUS

borrowers are not required to show financial

need, but must complete the Free Application

for Federal Student Aid. The amount borrowed

cannot exceed the cost of education.

Part-Time Employment

Money is also available in the form of parttime

employment. Employment opportunity is

made available to those students who qualify

and who need an income supplement to

partially defray college expenses. Student

employment generally falls into two categories:

Federal College Work-Study, which is determined

on the basis of financial need; and

Institutional Work-Study, which is determined

principally by the degree of work skills

possessed and availability of jobs. Types of

employment opportunities at the University

include secretarial, clerical, custodial, resident

assistants, library, maintenance, and lab

assistants.

Return of Title IV Funds

The return of Title IV funds is based on

requirements of the Higher Education

Amendments of 1998 and assumes that a

student earns his/her aid based on the period of

time he/she remains enrolled. If a student

withdraws from the University during the first

60% of the enrollment period, the University

and/or the student may be required to return


Arkansas-Monticello

some of the Title IV funds awarded to the

student. Title IV funds include Stafford Loans,

Perkins Loans, Pell Grants, Supplemental

Educational Opportunity (SEOG) Grants, and

Arkansas Student Assistance Grants. During

the first 60% of the enrollment period, a

student earns Title IV funds in direct proportion

to the length of time he/she remains

enrolled. A student who remains enrolled

beyond the 60% point earns all aid for which

he/she is eligible and will not be required to

return any funds. Examples of actual Return of

Title IV Funds calculations are available in the

Office of Financial Aid.

Scholarships

All scholarships awarded by the University

of Arkansas-Monticello are competitive, and

awards are based upon demonstrated academic

ability or performance skills. Renewable

scholarships require the student to meet and

maintain specific criteria. The University offers

a variety of scholarships including academic,

athletic, departmental, and privately funded

awards. For additional information, contact

Scholarship Committee Chair, UAM PO Box

3600, Monticello, Arkansas 71656. E—mail

whitingm@uamont.edu or telephone 870-460-

1026 (toll free within Arkansas 1-800-844-

1826).

Types of Scholarships

I. Institutional Scholarships

Scholarships funded by the University are

awarded as funds are available. Eligibility for

institutional academic scholarships requires the

student to

1) apply for admission,

1. If the offense occurs in a residence hall,

the Resident Director for that hall may:

a. Give the student the option of a

hearing with the Residence Hall Judicial Board

(RHJB) or with the Resident Director.

Sanctions will include up to Conduct Probation.

Appeal is to the Dean of Students/

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs; or

b. If the offense is of a more serious

nature, the case is referred directly to the Dean

of Students/Assistant Vice Chancellor for

Student Affairs.

2. If the offense occurs outside the

residence hall or is of a more serious nature, the

case is referred to the Dean of Students/

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs. At

this point, the student may choose to have a

hearing with the University Judicial Board or

with the Dean of Students/Assistant Vice

Chancellor for Student Affairs. Punishment

may include any measure listed above, including

suspension or expulsion. Appeal is to the Vice

Chancellor for Student Affairs.

3. In any discipline proceedings, due

process will be observed. The basic requirements

of due process include:

a. written notice in advance of the

hearing time and place and of charges in

sufficient detail so as to allow the preparation of

a defense.


Arkansas-Monticello

b. an opportunity for the accused

student to present his/her own case and call

witnesses in his/her behalf.

c. that no action be taken against a

student without substantial evidence.

More specific information such as

procedures for conducting a hearing and a copy

of the University judicial process are available

from the Office of Residence Life.

The Dean of Students/Assistant Vice

Chancellor for Student Affairs has the power of

interim suspension if the continued presence of

a student on campus constitutes a clear and

present danger to University, student, faculty, or

staff safety or property.

University Judicial Board

The University Judicial Board is composed

of seven faculty or staff members approved by

the Chancellor for one-year terms, two of

whom are named Chairperson(s); and six

Academic Regulations

The University of Arkansas-Monticello reserves the right to change the

fees, rules, and calendar that regulate admission and registration,

instruction, and graduation from the University.

The University further reserves the right to

change any other regulations affecting the

student body. Changes shall become effective

whenever the proper authorities so determine,

and shall apply not only to prospective students

but also to those currently enrolled in the

University.

Academic Sessions

The academic year includes two regular

semesters in the fall and spring and a summer

session of two terms. The fall semester begins in

late August and concludes prior to the

Christmas holiday. The spring semester begins

in early January and concludes in mid-May. The

two summer terms are normally scheduled

between June 1 and August 15.

Academic Credit

The University operates on a semester

calendar. One hour of credit represents an

amount of work equivalent to one 50-minute

lecture each week for a minimum of 15 weeks.

From two to three hours of laboratory work

constitute the equivalent of one hour of lecture.

Classification

Students are classified at the beginning of

each semester based upon accumulated

semester-hours of credit earned. Students who

have earned fewer than 30 credits are classified

as freshmen; sophomores have earned at least 30

credits, juniors 60 credits, and seniors 90

credits.

Grading System

Grade Meaning Value in Grade Points

A Outstanding 4

B Good 3

C Average 2

D Passing *1

F Unsatisfactory Work, or Withdrew -

Failing 0

W Withdrew - Passing (no grade points)

AU Course Audited (no degree credit; no

grade points)

I Required Work Incomplete (no grade

points)

CR Credit (no grade points)

*A grade of “C” or better must be earned in

some courses in order to progress to the next higher

course level, or to graduate in some majors.

A student may receive an incomplete, “I,”

when, due to unusual circumstances acceptable

to the instructor, the student is unable to

complete course requirements prior to the end

of a term. When possible, the option should be


48

Arkansas-Monticello

Academic Regulations

discussed by the instructor and student,

concluding in a written agreement outlining the

remaining requirements to be satisfied for the

course (use the Incomplete Grade Form

available in the academic unit office). One copy

of this form must be filed at the time final

grades for the term are submitted with each of

the following signatures: course instructor, head

of academic unit offering the course, and the

student. A notation of “I” will be posted to the

grade report for the term in which the

incomplete is granted and on the academic

transcript. An “I” will not affect term and

cumulative credits and grade point averages for

the term in which the incomplete is granted and

subsequent enrollment terms during the time

limit. A student may not re-enroll in an

incomplete course within the time limit allotted

for completing the course.

The student will have a maximum of one

calendar year to satisfy the requirements for the

course. Failure to complete course requirements

within one year will automatically replace the

incomplete with a grade of “F” with the credits

and grade point averages recalculated to reflect

this change.

Except for the grade of “I,” no course

grade will be changed unless an error has been

made. All grades earned will remain on the

permanent record. A grade of “D” or “F,” for

example, will remain on a student’s permanent

record, even though a higher grade may be

recorded for the course in question, after it has

been repeated.

Grading criteria for specific courses,

outlining the basis on which grades are assigned,

can be found in course syllabi.

Academic Clemency

In order to provide a second opportunity

for undergraduate students who performed

poorly at some point in their studies, the

University of Arkansas-Monticello has a policy

on Academic Clemency. The policy is designed

to help former students who have gained a new

respect and commitment to higher education

and the career opportunities that come from a

college degree. The request for Academic

Clemency must be made within the first

semester of the student’s re-enrollment at UAM.

Interested students should contact the Office of

the Registrar for more information about this

policy.

Dean’s List

After each fall and spring term, the

University publishes the Dean’s list of all

students whose semester grade point average is

3.50 or higher for 12 or more hours of course

work at the 1000-4000 level.

Course Prerequisites and

Corequisites

No student may enroll in a course until

successfully completing all prerequisites or

concurrently enrolling in the corequisite. The

instructor may withdraw any student who does

not comply with this regulation. The head of

the academic unit in which the course is taught

may approve exceptions to this policy.

Course Numbers and Symbols

The numbers of the regular university

courses contain four digits: the first indicates, in

general, the university year; the second and

third the particular course; and the fourth the

number of hours of credit.

Developmental courses are numbered

0001-0999, freshmen-level courses 1001-1999;

sophomore-level courses 2001-2999; juniorlevel

courses 3001-3999; senior-level courses

4001-4999; and graduate-level courses 5000-

5999.

Enrollment in Developmental

Courses

The UAM developmental education

program is designed to identify academically

underprepared students and assist in developing

their abilities to successfully meet the requirements

of college-level courses. Based on ACT

or SAT scores, students with developmental

education needs are placed in one or more

courses in reading, English, mathematics,

communication, and basic college skills.

Students whose enhanced ACT scores in

reading, mathematics, or English fall below 19

must enroll in appropriate developmental


Arkansas-Monticello

courses: a reading laboratory, a 0-level mathematics

course, or ENGL 0133 Fundamentals

of English. Students with low college entrance

scores in both mathematics and English will be

restricted in their first semester to enrolling in a

maximum of 14 credit hours which will include

the appropriate 0-level mathematics course,

ENGL 0133 Fundamentals of English, SPCH

1103 Introduction to Communication, and

DEV 0101 College Skills. Students who have

completed a colleg-elevel course in mathematics

or English with a “C” or above may not enroll

for credit in a 0-level course in that subject.

NOTE: Part-time students will be required to

complete these specified courses during their

first 30 hours of course work at the University.

Repetition of Courses

Courses may be repeated a maximum of

two times. Students may not repeat a course in

which a “B” or “A” was earned. A “W” or “F”

received for courses will be considered as courses

attempted. All courses attempted (including

repeats) will remain on the transcript. The last

grade earned will be used in computing grade

point average. NOTE: If a student repeats a

course in which a passing grade was earned and

receives an “F,” the credit previously earned will

be invalidated; the grade of “F” will be used in

computing the grade point average.

Students must appeal to the Vice

Chancellor for Academic Affairs for permission

to repeat courses for the third (or more) time.

If permission is granted, then the student is

limited to a maximum enrollment of 14 hours

for the semester.

Academic Regulations

Independent Study Courses for

Undergraduates

It is sometimes desirable, and in the best

interest of students’ academic growth, that they

be allowed to engage in independent study or

research. Independent study or research courses

will carry a course number of 479V in each

discipline, and are open only to students who

meet the following criteria:

1) completion of 60 hours;

2) completion of a minimum of 12 hours

of course work in the discipline of the independent

study or research;

3) a 3.00 cumulative grade point average

in the discipline in which the research is

conducted.

Independent study and research courses

will require extensive independent study and

research, formal written reports, and regular

conferences with the instructor. A detailed

description of the proposal and its requirements

must be submitted for approval to the academic

unit head and the Vice Chancellor for Academic

Affairs. Students may complete only one

independent study/research project per

semester. Independent study/research proposals

should not duplicate existing courses in the

academic catalog.

Undergraduates Enrolled in

Graduate Courses

Qualified undergraduate students may be

permitted to enroll in graduate courses for

either undergraduate or graduate credit within

the following guidelines. Only undergraduate

students within 30 hours of graduation may

petition to enroll in graduate courses through

the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs. A

minimum cumulative grade point average of

3.00, approval by the course instructor, and

consent of the Dean or Chair of the offering

unit must be presented as part of the petition.

Normally undergraduate students will not

receive graduate credits, but when circumstances

warrant, the Graduate Council may

authorize awarding graduate credit. However,

students enrolling in graduate courses for

graduate credit (not undergraduate credit) may

not apply such credits to undergraduate degree

requirements.

Audit

Students who audit a course do not receive

credit for the course, and the instructor does

not evaluate the progress of the student. After

the deadline for registration has passed, students

may not change from audit to credit status.

Types of Non-Classroom Credit

Recognizing the fact that individuals are

often able to learn concepts, skills, and

49


50

Arkansas-Monticello

Academic Regulations

information essentially equivalent to collegelevel

learning, yet acquired outside the

traditional college classroom setting, the

University offers students the opportunity to

earn college credit through special examination,

evaluation, and other procedures. Students may

earn academic credit without letter grades

through these procedures by satisfactorily

completing:

1) requirements and examinations in

approved correspondence courses;

2) approved examinations in the College

Entrance Examination Board’s Advanced

Placement program;

3) approved examinations in the College

Level Examination Program (CLEP);

4) examinations prepared by the appropriate

academic unit; and

5) assessment of prior military training.

A maximum of 60 hours of academic

credit may be earned through any combination

of the above programs. Specific information

regarding each is printed below. Granting of

credit, however, does not guarantee applicability

to every major, minor, or program of study.

Interested students should consult individual

academic units for this information. Students

should also be aware that some graduate and

professional schools will not accept credit by

examination or learning experience. Nonclassroom

credit will be posted only for

currently enrolled students.

I. Correspondence Courses

The maximum correspondence credit

accepted is 15 semester hours. All students

enrolled in the University of Arkansas-

Monticello who pursue correspondence work

must have prior approval of their academic

advisor, academic unit head, and the Vice

Chancellor for Academic Affairs. The test must

be taken either at the University of Arkansas-

Monticello Testing Center or at the institution

offering the correspondence. If this procedure is

not followed, the University may refuse to

accept the hours for credit.

Correspondence credit may not be taken

when the same course is offered on campus,

except in the case of absolute conflicts and with

the permission of the Vice Chancellor for

Academic Affairs.

Correspondence courses will not be used

to satisfy General Education requirements, and

some specific courses must be taken in

residence. These include Speech 1013 (Voice

and Diction) and Speech 1023 (Public

Speaking), Art 1103 (Art for Elementary

Teachers), and all methods courses.

The institution sponsoring the correspondence

course must provide the University with a

transcript or notification of completion. Credit

will not be granted unless the grade for the

correspondence work is a “C” or better.

II. Advanced Placement Credit

UAM will grant college credit for courses

successfully completed in the Advanced

Placement Program of the College Entrance

Examination Board by an entering freshman

while in high school. The semester hours of

credit permitted will be that allowed for the

corresponding course or sequence of courses at

UAM, but no grade will be assigned. Students

receiving Advanced Placement Credit for a

course may not earn CLEP credit for a

prerequisite to this course.

The tests and scores accepted by the

University are:

III. Credit by Examination

Students may gain college credit in a

number of subjects through some nationally

sponsored examination programs such as the

College Level Examination Program (CLEP).

Specific information about what tests can be

taken for course credit can be obtained through

Academic Regulations

the Testing Office located in the Student

Services Center, (870) 460-1010.

IV. Credit by Academic Unit Examination

Students may challenge and earn credit for

1000-4000 level courses currently listed in the

University’s catalog for which no approved

CLEP examinations exist by satisfactorily

completing specially prepared examinations.

Students wishing to take these unit challenge

examinations must complete a form available in

the Registrar’s Office and obtain the permission

of the Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the

dean or chair of the unit offering the course,

and the professor of record (who must be a fulltime

faculty member).

Challenge examinations will be available

only during the regular academic year. Students

may not attempt credit by examination in a

course in the following instances:

1) for courses where an approved CLEP

examination is currently available;

2) when the student has already attempted

the course;

3) when the student has completed a more

advanced course for which the credit by

examination course is a prerequisite.

Credit by unit examination is not available

for courses below the 1000 level. A maximum

of nine credit hours may be earned through

credit by unit examination.

V. Credit for Prior Military Training

The University may award up to 12 credit

hours for prior military training courses listed in

the latest edition of the American Council on

Education’s A Guide to the Evaluation of

Educational Experiences in the Armed Service. For

further information, contact the Office of the

Registrar.

Student Load and Definition of

Full/Part-Time Students

Full-time undergraduate student status

requires registration in at least 12 semester

hours of courses. Students registered in less

than 12 semester hours will be considered parttime

status. A normal load is considered 15

semester hours.

The maximum number of semester hours

51


52

Arkansas-Monticello

Academic Regulations

in which a student with less than a GPA of 3.00

may enroll is 18. A student who has a

cumulative GPA of 3.00, or who has applied for

graduation, may register for a maximum of 21

hours for the current semester. Students who

do not meet the GPA requirement or graduation

criteria must have approval of the Vice

Chancellor for Academic Affairs before

registering for more than 18 hours. All students

wishing to register for more than 18 semester

hours must pay tuition and fees for the

additional registration.

Students may register for a total of seven

semester hours per summer term, not to exceed

14 semester hours during the combined

summer terms. Students enrolled in at least six

hours during the summer term will be

considered full-time status. Less than six hours

will be considered part-time status during the

summer.

Schedule Changes (Drop/Add) and

Withdrawal

Students may add courses to their

schedules, with the approval of their assigned

advisor, only during the first through fifth class

days of the semester. Students may drop a

course, or withdraw from all courses, through

the first 11 days of classes with no grade or

course listed. In the summer term, these periods

are shorter; specific deadline dates are listed in

the University Calendar. A processing fee will be

charged for each change of schedule, except

during the registration period. During a fall or

spring semester, courses dropped and withdrawals

accomplished will be recorded on a student’s

transcript as follows:

• First 11 class days - no course listed;

• 12th class day through 55th class daygrade

of “W” only;

• 56th class day through final deadline -

“W” if passing, “F” if failing;

• Last three class days - no drop or

withdrawal allowed.

To drop a course, a student should begin at

the office of his/her academic advisor. To

complete withdrawal from the University, a

student should begin at the Registrar’s Office,

return any library books, laboratory keys, and

University equipment, and check out of the

residence hall.

When an emergency or other special

circumstance makes it impossible for a student

to withdraw in person, the student may

correspond with the Registrar’s Office to make

other arrangements.

Students who stop attending a course (or

all courses) without dropping or withdrawing

officially will receive failing grades.

Attendance Regulations

Regular class attendance is considered an

essential part of the students’ educational

experience and a requirement for adequate

evaluation of academic progress. The faculty

considers that college students, as mature

individuals, will recognize the need for regular

attendance and will comply with this requirement.

Faculty may establish specific attendance

requirements which will be stated in the course

syllabus. Students who violate attendance

requirements may be removed from the course

with a grade of “W” or “F.” In the case of a 0-

level course, students who miss six hours of

lecture may be withdrawn by the instructor.

Student Absences Due to

Participation in University-

Sponsored Events

At times, a student may participate in a

University-sponsored activity which causes the

student to miss one or more class meetings.

When this occurs, the sponsor of the activity

will provide the student with a memo which

includes the event, dates and times of the event,

and the student’s name. The student will

individually contact each of his/her instructors

to discuss the class(es) to be missed. This

discussion should occur at least one week prior

to the anticipated absence. The student is

responsible for all material covered and any class

activities during the absence. The sponsor of

the activity will also provide all academic unit

heads and Academic Affairs a description of the

activity which includes the location, dates, and

a list of campus participants.


Arkansas-Monticello

Policy on Visitors

All visitors to a class are required to have

the permission of the instructor. Visitors to any

classroom or University facility must not be

disruptive or present a safety hazard. Anyone

planning to visit a class for more than four

sessions will be required to enroll in the class as

an auditor.

Grade Point Average

A student’s cumulative grade point average

represents only those grades earned in residence

at the University. Grades earned in courses at

other institutions and transferred to the

University will not be used in calculating

cumulative grade point averages. Additionally,

correspondence courses will not be included in

cumulative grade point averages.

The grade point average of a student who

takes a course at UAM and then repeats the

course at another institution will not be affected

by the grade earned at the transfer institution,

even if the grade earned there is sufficient (“C”

or better) to allow the credit to be accepted at

UAM.

NOTE: Except for repeats, a minimum

2.00 grade point average (GPA) is required to

enroll in a junior (3000) or senior (4000) level

course. Any exceptions to this policy must be

approved by the Vice Chancellor for Academic

Affairs or designee.

Academic Standing and Suspension

At the end of each term, the University

reviews the academic standing of all students.

Students will maintain good academic standing

when both their semester and cumulative grade

point averages are at 2.00 or higher. If either

the cumulative or semester grade point average

falls below 2.00, the student will be placed on

conditional standing. The University may

continue a student on conditional standing

until both the cumulative and semester grade

point averages are 2.00 or higher. When both

the cumulative and semester grade point

averages are 2.00 or higher, the student is

removed from conditional standing.

Students on conditional standing whose

semester and cumulative grade point averages

Academic Regulations

both fall below 2.00 will be suspended from the

University. The first suspension will be for one

semester, the second suspension will last for one

year, and the third suspension will extend for

three years. The suspension may be appealed

to the Academic Appeals Committee. Suspended

students who are eligible to continue

their studies at the University must contact the

Office of Admissions for readmission.

Students receiving a one-semester

suspension at the end of the spring semester will

be allowed to enroll in the fall semester if,

during the summer, they earn at least six hours

of course work at UAM with a minimum 2.00

grade point average.

The academic standing of all students

enrolled in the summer will be evaluated at the

end of the second summer term. Students

whose cumulative grade point average meets the

appropriate standard at the end of the summer

will be removed from suspension or conditional

academic standing. Students will not be

suspended or placed on conditional academic

standing based on their performance during the

summer.

Any credit earned from another institution

while a student is suspended will not be

accepted by UAM.

Continuous Enrollment in

Required Courses

All full-time students must be continuously

enrolled in the appropriate English

composition and mathematics courses until

their general education requirements in these

areas have been met. A student enrolled in the

College Skills course, developmental mathematics,

and/or developmental English composition,

and/or Freshman Composition I, must

complete the course with a grade of “C” or

higher. Part-time degree seeking students must

complete the mathematics and English

composition requirements in the first 30 credit

hours attempted.

Arkansas-Monticello

Academic Regulations

Arkansas Assessment of General

Education

Pursuant to Act 874 of 1993, a “rising

junior test” must be taken by all Arkansas

public college and university students who have

earned 45 to 60 credit hours (excluding

developmental courses) to measure learning in

the general education curriculum. The “rising

junior exam” is referred to as the AAGE.

Students who have earned enough hours to be

eligible for the assessment will be notified.

Students must register for the test and must take

it on the day and time specified. There is no

additional cost for taking the AAGE. UAM

strictly enforces the AAGE law. Students who

do not take the AAGE as directed will have

their enrollment interrupted. Students who

have questions should direct them to the

Assistant Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs,

Student Services Center, (870) 460-1135.

Honor Society

Alpha Chi is a national scholarship

recognition society with approximately 300

chapters nationwide. Its purpose is to promote

academic excellence and exemplary character

among college and university students and to

honor those who achieve such distinction. As a

general honor society, Alpha Chi admits to

membership students from all academic

disciplines. UAM’s chapter, Arkansas Zeta, was

chartered in 1956. Membership is by invitation

and is limited to students actively seeking a

degree who: have completed at least 62 hours;

academically rank in the upper ten percent of

the Junior or Senior classes and have compiled a

GPA of 3.60 or above; or have completed 92

hours or more with a GPA of 3.50 or above.

Transfer students must have completed at least

24 hours at UAM. Accumulated “W”s may

affect eligibility.

Transfer Policy

Transfer applicants must meet the

minimum academic standing requirements as

outlined on page 15 and be admissible to the

institution from which they are transferring. To

simplify transfers, the University has formed

articulation agreements with several area

schools. Students should contact the Office of

the Registrar (870-460-1034) for additional

information.

Transfer students must submit ACT scores

when they have not completed a transferable

course in mathematics which will satisfy the

general education mathematics requirement, or

when they have not completed one semester of

a transferable course in English composition.

Course credit for acceptable work is transferred,

but grades are not transferred. Transfer work

does not affect the UAM grade point average of

a student.

Students on suspension from UAM may

not transfer hours taken at any other institution

during the suspension period. Other regulations

affecting transfer credit are:

1. Transferring students may receive credit

for course work completed at an accredited

post-secondary institution where a grade of “C”

or higher has been earned. Credit is not

awarded for course work completed at

educational institutions judged not to be

collegiate level.

2. No more than six credit hours of

religion will count toward the degree requirements

of a major.

3. A maximum of 68 credit hours may be

transferred from a community, technical, or

junior college.

4. The final decision regarding transfer

course equivalents to University courses will be

made by the University.

5. Military service, CLEP examination

scores, and Advanced Placement scores may be

evaluated for credit but will not be accepted as

posted on another institution’s academic

transcript. Original documentation must be

submitted to the Registrar’s Office for evaluation.

6. Students with less than a 2.00 cumulative

grade point average or less than a 2.00

semester average for their last semester will be

admitted on conditional academic standing.

Major Field of Study

Any student can declare a major field of

study, at which time he/she will be assigned to

an academic advisor in the academic unit

offering the major. Students who are undecided

about their major are advised by “General


Arkansas-Monticello

Studies” faculty advisors. Regardless of whether

or not a major has been declared, students are

encouraged to complete the general education

requirements within their first 60 hours.

Some major programs have specific course

work, grade point, or other requirements which

must be met to continue in the field of study.

Students should contact their academic advisor

or the unit head of the appropriate school or

division for information about specific major

requirements.

Students can change their major by

completing a “Change of Major” form in the

academic office of the desired major.

Academic Appeals Committee

The Academic Appeals Committee is

composed of seven full-time faculty members.

This committee is responsible for hearing

student appeals of academic probation,

suspension, and other academic matters. It shall

also hear appeals of grades if mediation by the

school dean/division chair or Vice Chancellor

for Academic Affairs cannot resolve a dispute.

The Student Handbook includes a detailed

description of the appeals process.

Appeals should be addressed to the

Academic Appeals Committee, c/o the Office of

Academic Affairs, PO Box 3478, Monticello,

AR 71656.

Academic Code Violations

Cheating and plagiarism are considered

academic violations. These violations are

adjudicated through the Academic Violation

Process listed below:

1. An instructor who suspects a student is

guilty of cheating or plagiarism within the

instructor’s class must inform the student of this

suspicion and provide the student with an

opportunity to respond to the accusation.

2. An instructor who believes a student is

guilty of cheating or plagiarism within the

instructor’s class may take any of the following

actions: 1) issue a warning to the student; 2)

lower the grade awarded to the student for the

paper or test; 3) require the student to retake

the test or rewrite the paper; 4) award no credit

for the paper or test; 5) withdraw the student

from the course; 6) award the student a failing

Academic Regulations

grade for the course.

3. A student who receives any of the above

actions who feels this action is unjust may

appeal the instructor’s decision as addressed in

the academic appeals process. This appeal

procedure must begin within ten class days of

receiving written or oral notice of the action.

Transcripts

The University charges $4 for each

transcript issued. No transcript will be issued

until all financial records have been cleared and

the transcript fee is paid.

Only the student may request his/her

transcript. Requests must contain the full

name, social security number, and signature of

the student. Transcripts may be requested as

follows:

1. By mail. Students should send the

request and transcript fee of $4 to the Cashier’s

Office, P.O. Box 3597 UAM, Monticello, AR

71656.

2. In person. Students may to go the

Cashier’s Office (2nd Floor, Babin Business

Center) during Cashier’s office hours and make

payment for the transcript. The request and the

receipt should be submitted to the Office of the

Registrar in the Student Services Center for

pickup. Arrangements can also be made to have

the transcript mailed directly from the

University.

3. By fax. A signed request may be sent to

the Office of the Registrar at (870) 460-1935.

The fax request will be honored if the sender ID

and telephone number are listed on the fax

header line. It is also recommended that the

requestor include a contact telephone number

along with the other required information (see

above) and signature. Payment must be made

before the request will be processed.

Upon specific request, transcripts may be

faxed directly from the Office of the Registrar.

However, students should be aware that

recipients of such transcripts might not accept

them as official. The cost for a faxed transcript

is $4. Faxing a transcript and mailing an official

transcript are considered two separate transactions,

and two separate fees will be charged.

provide a foundation for sustained lifelong

learning. The program is designed to help the

student develop the abilities to reason critically,

analyze objectively, think creatively, perceive

assumptions, make judgments on the basis of

values, construct arguments, use evidence, and

communicate and observe effectively. Through

General Education, the specific skills of reading,

writing, computation, comprehension,

listening, and speaking will be enhanced. The

program also strives to instill an appreciation

and understanding of the creative, intellectual,

social, and scientific forces which shape our

history and guide our lives. When General

Education is successfully completed, the student

should be prepared to perform effectively and

responsibly in society and should have the base

of knowledge necessary for the pursuit of

advanced studies.

The following General Education

requirements apply to all baccalaureate degrees.

be counted for General Education elective

credit only in the Speech and Humanities

Cluster categories under Humanities and Social

Sciences, and the Mathematics category under

Mathematics and Natural Sciences. When

supportive requirements exist for a given major,

but are drawn from a discipline other than the

major, they may be used to meet the general

education requirements, provided that they do

not violate the restrictions listed in the previous

paragraph.

3. In addition to the courses in the major

curriculum and its supportive requirements, a

major may require specific courses within the

General Education elective options.

Senior Credit Requirement

A total of 40 semester hours must be

earned in courses numbered at the 3000-4000

level. At least 15 hours in the major and at least

nine hours in the minor must be at the 3000-

4000 level unless otherwise specified.

Residency Requirement

For a bachelor’s degree, candidates must

have earned at least 30 semester hours in

residence at the University of Arkansas-

Monticello, 24 of which must be taken after

attaining senior class standing, and a portion of

which must be in the major and/or minor field.

Special permission to deviate from the senior

residence requirement may be granted in

individual cases where a proposal has merit

relative to the student’s academic objectives.

Such requests must be presented in writing by

the student to the Vice Chancellor for

Academic Affairs and must have the approval of

the student’s major advisor and the Academic

Appeals Committee.

For an associate degree, candidates must


Arkansas-Monticello

earn no fewer than 15 semester hours of credit

from the University of Arkansas-Monticello.

Second Baccalaureate Degree

Occasionally, students may wish to pursue

a second baccalaureate degree. In such cases,

students must meet all major and degree

identity requirements for the second degree,

earn at least 30 semester hours of credit in

residence beyond the first degree requirements,

and satisfy all grade point average requirements.

Second Major

A student may complete a second major.

All requirements for both majors must be

fulfilled; however, only the degree identity

requirements for the first major must be

fulfilled. Students who have already earned a

baccalaureate degree are not eligible for seeking

a second major except by earning a second,

separate degree.

Graduation under a Particular Catalog

Students have a maximum of six years to

graduate under the catalog in effect at the time

of their original enrollment.

Students have the following two options:

(1) abiding by the requirements of the UAM

catalog in effect at the time of their original

enrollment, or (2) abiding by a more current

active UAM catalog, as long as they were

enrolled at UAM during the period that the

catalog was in effect. Changes in academic

programs or actions taken by authorities

external to the University (e.g., accrediting

agencies or state agencies) may make it

necessary for a student to move to a more recent

catalog.

The present catalog is in force from

Summer II 2001 through Summer I 2003.

Candidates for graduate degrees should

refer to the graduate section of the catalog.

Grade Point Requirement for Graduation

A minimum grade point average of 2.00 is

required in: 1) major field, 2) minor field, and

3) overall. Some majors require all major

courses to be completed with a minimum grade

of “C.”

Graduation Requirements

Degree Audit Requirement

Following completion of 70 hours and

prior to the completion of 90 hours, baccalaureate

students must have a degree audit on file in

the Registrar’s Office. This audit must include

the signature of the student, advisor, dean/chair,

and registrar. Students seeking an associate

degree must file a degree audit between 35 and

45 hours.

Students who have completed 90 or more

hours must have a signed audit on file to

register for the next semester. The signed degree

audit is used by the Registrar’s Office as a

checklist to assist with the verification of the

student’s graduation requirements.

Lack of knowledge or incorrect interpretation

of University policies and regulations does

not remove the student from the obligation to

satisfy all requirements for a degree. The

student bears the ultimate responsibility for

completing a degree program.

Graduation Requirements

Requirements for Admission to

Teacher Education

In compliance with State of Arkansas law,

the University requires that each student

pursuing a degree in a program leading to

licensure as a teacher meet certain requirements

for admission to the teacher education program.

One of the requirements for admission to the

teacher education program is the achievement

of passing scores on all parts of the Praxis I

(reading, writing, and mathematics). Among

the requirements for admission to the internship

year, the student must earn passing scores

on the appropriate Praxis II specialty area

examination in his/her teaching area. Prior to

graduation, students are required to have

passing scores on the Praxis II Principles of

Learning and Teaching (PLT) test. Specific

admission requirements are available from the

School of Education office located in Willard

Hall.

Degree Requirements for

Professional School Candidates

Students who enter accredited professional

programs before actually completing all degree

requirements may be granted the baccalaureate

degree under the following circumstances:

students must have completed 93 hours of

undergraduate course work including the state

core curriculum of general education requirements,

at least 12 hours at the 3000-4000 level,

and at least 30 hours completed in residence at

the University of Arkansas-Monticello. After

completion of the course work at the accredited

professional school deemed appropriate to

satisfy all graduation requirements including

those of a specific major, the student may then

be awarded the degree upon request. Degrees

will be awarded only for programs of study that

are offered by the University at that time.

Graduation With Honors

The University recognizes graduates of

baccalaureate degree programs who have

excelled in their studies. At the baccalaureate

degree level, students must have a cumulative

grade point average of at least 3.50 to graduate

cum laude. To graduate magna cum laude,

61


62

Arkansas-Monticello

Graduation Requirements

students must have a cumulative grade point

average of at least 3.70. The highest recognition

is summa cum laude, which requires a cumulative

grade point average of at least 3.90.

To graduate with honors, baccalaureate

students must have at least sixty hours in

residence at UAM. Only 1000-level courses

and above are used to compute the hours in

residence and the grade point average.

Commencement

Degrees are conferred in May, August, and

December. Students must file an “Application

for Graduation” form with the Registrar at least

ten weeks prior to graduation. The official

graduation date is three business days following

the last examination of the term.

A commencement ceremony is conducted

only in May. Undergraduate students who lack

six or fewer hours to complete their degree may

participate in the May ceremony. Students may

only participate in one commencement

ceremony for each degree earned.

Arkansas Core Curriculum

The Arkansas Board of Higher Education,

by legislative direction, establishes at each

public college and university a 35-credit core

curriculum. This 35-credit block is fully

transferable among Arkansas public institutions

and will satisfy corresponding degree requirements

at each institution. The University

maintains a current list of the 35-credit core

from other Arkansas public institutions.

The University’s 35-credit core is listed

below. It is fully contained within the 44-credit

General Education program required for all

baccalaureate degrees, within the 38-credit

general education program for the Associate of

Arts degree, and within the requirements for the

Associate of Science in Land Surveying

Technology degree.

The University of Arkansas-Monticello

School of Education is committed to the

development of high quality teacher leaders who

are caring, competent professionals dedicated to

meeting the needs of a changing, diverse society.

The UAM School of Education faculty and

teacher education students serve their communities

through active participation in academic

studies and field experiences that develop highlevel

competencies in content knowledge,

pedagogy, professionalism, and equity. The

UAM School of Education, in close partnership

and collaboration with partnering schools and

the arts and sciences, is dedicated to providing

the highest level of teacher training and

excellence in southeast Arkansas.

Title II – Higher Education Act of

1998

The University releases information on the

quality of its teacher preparation program

according to the requirements of Section 207 of

Title II of the Higher Education Act as

amended in 1998. The institutional pass rate on

Praxis I and II examinations for candidates in

the teacher preparation program at UAM is 100

percent for all program completers in the 1999-

2000 cohort.

Conceptual Framework

The Conceptual Framework of the School

of Education is organized around four strands

which promote the following in teacher

candidates: acquisition of a knowledge base;

development of pedagogical skills; demonstration

of equity and social justice; and attainment

of professionalism. Because programs within

the School of Education target P-12 student

achievement and learning as its critical mission,

the academic needs of the learner are placed at

the core of the four strands of the Conceptual

Framework. Each strand represents an essential

component of the teacher education program

that is further refined through the identification

of indicators of competence within each strand.

Realizing that the acquisition of skills to

become an exemplary teacher are developmental

and cumulative, the School of Education faculty

have identified three stages through which


82

Arkansas-Monticello

Education

candidates progress: Stage One, which is the

pre-admission stage of teacher candidacy; Stage

Two, during which teacher candidates are

admitted to the teacher preparation program;

and Stage Three, the internship phase of teacher

preparation.

Program Offerings

Programs offered in the School of

Education include those leading to teacher

licensure and those that do not. Those that do

not lead to licensure are Exercise Science and a

non-licensure program in Health and Physical

Education. Both are described later in this

section.

Programs Leading to Teacher

Licensure

The School of Education offers quality

programs leading to teacher licensure in early

childhood special education, middle level

education, and health and physical education.

Students interested in teaching at the secondary

level combine their majors with the School’s

professional education program to prepare for

careers as secondary teachers. Areas of

preparation for secondary teaching include

English, business, mathematics, physical

education, science, social studies, and speech.

Additionally, students majoring in P-12 art or

music complete the professional education core

courses in the School of Education.

Programs leading to licensure:

P-4 Early childhood special education

4-8 Middle level education

7-12 Secondary education (English,

business, mathematics, physical education,

science, social studies, and speech)

P-12 Art, music, and physical education

Teacher Education Admission

teacher education. Students who plan to

become teachers should complete the following

courses and experiences:

1. C or better in EDUC 1143;

only after ALL criteria listed above are met.

Students may not graduate unless they have

completed all components of the program,

including successfully passing all parts of the

Praxis I, Praxis II Specialty area examination,

and Praxis II Principles of Learning and

Teaching.

Teacher Education Field

Experiences and Internships

The teacher education program at the

University of Arkansas-Monticello supports the

early involvement of its candidates in field

experiences with P-12 students. Field experiences

are sequenced, developmental, and

focused on the practical application of content

covered in education classes. Most students

complete approximately 180 hours of field work

prior to their year-long senior year internship.

During the internship, students complete 600

hours of “practice” teaching during the

Internship II experience, and across the total

program students complete more than 1,000

hours of field-based work.

Matriculating through the Teacher

Preparation Program

The teacher preparation program is

comprised of three important components. The

first component is general education. All

students at UAM complete the general

Education

education requirements which provide a solid

foundation for study that will occur in later

courses. These courses are usually completed in

the first two years. Secondly, all teacher

education students complete the professional

education core, regardless of their major. These

courses are completed throughout the program,

beginning in the first year of enrollment, and

prepare the student for the basics of teaching

and learning. Thirdly, students preparing to

become teachers will complete specific course

work in their major area that will prepare them

for teacher licensure.

The teacher preparation program at UAM

is subject to Arkansas Department of Education

requirements. Please check with the School of

Education for specific, updated courses needed

to meet state licensure requirements for

teaching.

The mission of the School of Forest

Resources is to educate professional natural

resource managers, to enlarge the body of

knowledge in renewable forest resources and to

disseminate new ideas and technology.

Successful accomplishment of this mission will

promote and enhance management, conservation

and appreciation of public and private

forests, thereby providing for continuous

production and optimum attainment of a

variety of forest resources for the people of

Arkansas, the South and the nation. These

resource benefits include the production of

wood and fiber, wildlife, and clean water, as well

as provision for recreation, aesthetic and other

important values.

Accordingly, the School’s educational

objectives are:

1. To educate baccalaureate-level professionals

in forestry, spatial information systems,

and wildlife management, with both the

professional competence and diversity of

background to assume positions with a variety

of resource management organizations, such as

private industry, private consulting firms, or

public agencies; furthermore, to provide an

educational and professional basis for successful

work performance and for assuming increasing

administrative and managerial responsibilities to

the middle management level and beyond.

2. To afford students the option of a twoyear

degree in land surveying technology.

3. To provide graduate-level educational

opportunities in natural resources management.

4. To provide students the opportunity to

acquire the professional and academic competence

in forestry, spatial information systems, or

wildlife necessary to be nationally competitive

in graduate studies.

5. To foster general education, a professional

curriculum, and a collegiate environment

that attracts and retains academically strong and

professionally motivated students.

6. To promote an educational environment in

which a strong orientation toward academic

performance is encouraged, and where a dedication

to the profession and its ethics is developed.

Arkansas-Monticello

Forest Resources

In addition, the School’s other professional

objectives are:

1. To support research programs at both

the basic and applied levels that contribute to

the body of knowledge in forestry, wildlife

management, related natural resources, and

spatial information systems, and which address

the professional, scientific, and social needs of

the forestry and natural resources communities

in the state, the region, and the nation.

2. To maintain a program of extension and

public service that transmits new and established

knowledge and technology to appropriate

clientele through workshops, seminars,

symposia, continuing education programs, and

publications.

The School offers three baccalaureate

programs: Forestry, Spatial Information

Systems, and Wildlife Management. No minor

is required in these majors. In all three majors

the first two years of course work emphasize

general education in the sciences and humanities.

Courses in the junior and senior years

emphasize various aspects of professional

education. In addition, the School offers a twoyear

Associate of Science (A.S.) degree track in

Land Surveying Technology. Surveying

licensure is available to both SIS and Land

Surveying graduates.

Majors

In the Forestry major, students are given a

balance of general and professional course work.

General course work includes both the General

Education sequence and 12 hours of free

electives. The professional sequence consists of

a forestry core curriculum and a block of

supportive requirements. A major component

of the forestry core curriculum is the required 8-

week Forestry Summer Camp, an outdoor

experience that enhances the student’s leadership

skills, decision-making abilities, and other

professional expertise. The Forestry major is

accredited by the Society of American Foresters.

The Spatial Information Systems (SIS)

major is designed to provide students with a

mix of general education, geographic information

systems, remote sensing, global positioning

systems, photogrammetry, and land surveying.

Students who graduate with the SIS degree are

well prepared to enter professions in the rapidly

emerging SIS field or to further their graduate

education. In addition to natural resources

management, SIS provides students the

opportunity to apply their skills in a broad

range of professions such as municipal

planning, agriculture, and aerospace.

The Wildlife Management major is a

professional program designed to give students a

broad scientific background for management

and perpetuation of wildlife resources. The

curriculum emphasizes basic and applied

sciences, the social sciences, and development of

communication skills. This educational

foundation serves students who plan to enter

the wildlife profession with the baccalaureate

degree, or those who plan to continue their

education at the graduate level. Through

appropriate selection of courses in consultation

with their advisor, students can satisfy course

work requirements for professional certification

by The Wildlife Society.

Minors

Minors in forestry, geographic information

systems (GIS), natural resources, land surveying,

and wildlife management are available to

UAM students, including those in the School of

Forest Resources. Students may also choose to

apply their 10 to 18 hours of free electives

toward developing additional professional and/

or personal interests. The student, in consultation

with his or her advisor, selects these

courses.

Associate of Science Degree

The Associate of Science Degree in Land

Surveying Technology requires 65 semester

hours and two academic years for completion.

The associate degree includes courses in general

education, SIS, and land surveying. Graduates

of the A.S. in Land Surveying Technology have

the opportunity to pass the state licensure exam,

which enables them to become a licensed

professional land surveyor.
