The roots of City College, Loyola's evening college, date back to 1919 when extension courses were established for those who were unable to attend classes on a full-time basis. For over seventy years Loyola has maintained its commitment to serve the educational needs of working adults. City College provides a variety of degree programs, staffed by full-time faculty, which reflect the basic philosophy of Jesuit education combining rigorous, contemporary professional education with a broad foundation in the humanities. Recognizing the diverse and varied experience of adult students, City College faculty work closely with each student to develop a critical stance and humanistic interpretation of that experience. Using various educational formats (lecture, seminar, discussion, etc.) the college faculty assists adult students toward better understandings of themselves, their heritage and the contemporary world.

Undergraduate programs in the college require a broad foundation in the liberal arts. This foundation is integrated into the student's major and allows for the development of a critical position from which the student may judge contemporary events.

The individual majors provide the adult student with the information, skills and knowledge necessary to begin or to advance in a variety of professional areas. Evening and weekend courses are offered on City College's site in Baton Rouge as well as on Loyola's main campus in New Orleans. The college also utilizes a variety of distance learning formats.

DEGREES OFFERED

Bachelor of Applied Science (with a major in communication science, computer information systems applications, human and organization development, or radiologic technology)
Bachelor of Criminal Justice
Bachelor of Liberal Studies (with a major in humanities or social sciences)
Bachelor of Science - Nursing

COURSE LOAD

Most City College students attend school on a part-time basis and carry six to nine credit hours. A student may not carry more than 12 credit hours unless he or she obtains permission from the dean of the college.

EVENING AND WEEKEND COURSES

Classes are offered in a variety of formats and time frames. Most classes meet once a week, either in an eight-week-long format or for an entire semester. Intensive weekend courses meet on three or four nonconsecutive weekends from 6 until 10 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Saturday. The college also offers video-based and Internet-assisted courses.

COMPOSITION REQUIREMENT

All degree-seeking students in City College and students pursuing a degree in the College of Business Administration in the evening are required to demonstrate competency at the Composition C119 level. Students placed in Composition C100 (Basic Writing Skills), upon successful completion of this course, will be required to complete Composition C119. Students placed in Composition C119 through testing do not receive credit for Composition C100.

Transfer students who have completed a course equivalent to COMP C119 with a grade of C or better are not required to take the English Placement Test, as their transfer course will be used to meet the COMP C119 requirement. City College students are required to complete the composition requirement by their third semester of enrollment. It is recommended that the course be scheduled as early as possible in students' careers at the university.

USE OF CORRECT ENGLISH

Any student whose written or spoken English in any course is unsatisfactory may be reported by the instructor to the dean. The dean may assign supplementary work, without academic credit, varying in amount with the needs of the student. If the work prescribed is equivalent to a course, the regular tuition fee is charged. The granting of a degree may be delayed for failure to make up such deficiency in English to the satisfaction of the dean.

MINIMUM WRITING STANDARD

A piece of written work submitted for credit, i.e., a grade higher than F, must be free of gross mechanical errors to be considered even for the grade of D. A paper free of gross mechanical errors still is not necessarily acceptable. Mechanical perfection does not indicate that the student has done better than average work. It still falls to the student to demonstrate intellectual originality, good style and an ability to research a subject if a paper is to be considered worthy of a passing grade.

PREREQUISITES FOR SPECIFIC COURSES

City College courses have specific prerequisites, where introductory or survey courses exist. Those courses are required to be completed before any of the higher numbered courses may be scheduled.

Students who enroll for courses for which they do not have the necessary prerequisites do so at their own peril as the instructor may insist that they withdraw from the class.

Students not enrolled in degree programs may register for courses without regard to the prerequisites subject to the approval of the instructor.

REQUIREMENTS FOR DEGREE

In addition to the general requirements for graduation, as detailed in this bulletin, specific requirements for each degree program are set forth below. A 2.0 or higher grade point average is required for graduation. Unless special permission is granted by the dean to pursue work elsewhere, the last 30 credit hours must be completed at Loyola; the final 24 hours must be successfully completed in City College. Additionally, a student must earn a 2.0 in his or her major. A minimum of 50 percent of the courses in the major must be successfully completed at Loyola University, except in radiologic technology, as noted.

ADVISING

Each degree-seeking student in City College is assigned an academic advisor who will assist the student in schedule planning. Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors regularly during each term.

CURRICULUM DESIGN

The City College curriculum is divided into four basic components, and although all City College students have the same basic core requirements, each degree program has specific requirements in the major and adjunct areas.

Major courses - are those courses in particular disciplines which lead to a bachelor's degree.
Adjunct courses - are those required courses in areas closely allied to the major.
Core courses - are those courses which, in the liberal arts tradition, ensure the degree-seeking student a well-rounded education. All degree-seeking City

College students have the following core course requirements (42 hours total):

Foundations:

Writing - COMP C119 3 credit hours
Philosophy - PHIL C122 3 credit hours
