On-line Catalogs

  ^ TOP

The Black Hills State University academic catalog is updated annually by the Registrar’s Office in cooperation with the academic colleges. Any student registering for the first time at Black Hills State University will use the current version of the university catalog to plan an academic program. http://www.BHSU.edu

Please note that the university reserves the right to change graduation or other academic requirements where changes are necessary to comply with Board of Regents policy directives, to meet external demands relating to accountability or accreditation standards, to reflect curriculum changes or substitutions or to implement evolving discipline requirements in major fields.

Any student registering for the first time at Black Hills State University will use the current version of the university catalog to plan an academic program. Any student who continues through an uninterrupted academic program has two options.

   -   The student may progress through a complete baccalaureate program using the catalog that was current during initial enrollment, regardless of any changes made in subsequent catalogs.
  -   The student may elect to use a newer catalog year. If this option is selected, the older catalog may no longer be used to plan an academic program.

If a student interrupts their academic program for two semesters or more, the student must use the catalog that is current during the time of re-enrollment. The student may complete the baccalaureate program with this catalog or select the second option in the above paragraph.

Catalog of Graduation for Undergraduate Students

  ^ TOP
   -   The catalog of graduation begins with the summer term and ends with the subsequent spring term.
  -   Every student is required to have a catalog of graduation. New and transfer students are assigned the catalog in effect at the time of their initial enrollment at the university from which they are seeking a degree. Students may elect a catalog of graduation that is later than their initial catalog but may not elect a catalog of graduation that is earlier than their initial catalog.
  -   In order to receive a degree, a student must meet the program requirements listed in his/her catalog of graduation.
  -   Students who discontinue enrollment at any Regental university for more than two consecutive semesters are assigned the catalog in effect at the time of their reenrollment as their catalog of graduation.
  -   Students are considered to be in continuous enrollment for purposes of the catalog of graduation so long as any break in enrollment at any Regental university is for two or fewer consecutive semesters (excluding summer) and students maintain their degree seeking status at the same Regental university.
  -   Students who change their degree seeking status from one Regental university to another Regental university are assigned the catalog of graduation that corresponds to the term they are admitted to their new degree granting university.

Student Responsibility for Academic Program

  ^ TOP

The information contained in this catalog is the most accurate available at the time of publication. It is ultimately the student’s responsibility to stay abreast of dates, current regulations, curricula, and the status of specific programs being offered. Further, the university reserves the right, as approved by the Board of Regents, to modify requirements, curricula offerings, and charges, and to add, alter, or delete courses and programs through appropriate procedures. While reasonable efforts will be made to publicize such changes, a student is encouraged to seek current information from appropriate offices.

Academic Calendar and Terms Defined

  ^ TOP

Each institution shall operate a fall, spring, and summer term. Fall and spring shall be operated on a semester basis. Summer term begins the Monday following the spring semester and continues through the day before fall semester begins.  Summer term consists of three 4-week blocks and two 8-week blocks. 

A semester shall consist of a minimum of fifteen weeks. The number of class days in a given semester shall be inclusive of those days set aside for registration, assessment/performance testing and final examinations but exclusive of holidays and days set aside for new student orientation. New student orientation may be concurrent with or prior to registration.

Academic guidelines require that all courses offered for credit must involve a minimum of fifteen contact hours over three instructional days for each credit hour awarded.

Canceled Registration

  ^ TOP

A student’s registration may be canceled if:

    -   The Regental university(s) in which the student is enrolled is notified on or before registration day that the student shall not be attending the university(s) or
  -   A Regental university terminates a student’s enrollment in a particular course for a student’s failure to meet prerequisites or because of low enrollments; or
  -   The student has not made arrangements for payment on or before registration day; or
  -   A Regental university erroneously registered the student.

If a student’s registration is canceled, there shall be no permanent transcript record for the semester. If a student initiates withdrawal or the home university has completed withdrawal procedures for administrative reasons, the statement “Withdrew”, and a withdrawal date, and a “W” grade for every course for which the student was registered for that term will be entered on the transcript. See also policy 2:6.

A student who is required to withdraw from the term or from a course after the final withdrawal date (see policy 2:6.8) due to illness or extenuating circumstances may petition the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the student’s home university for an exception to the final withdrawal date. If approved, the student’s withdrawal is processed and the final withdrawal date of the term is used as the official date of the student’s withdrawal.

Transcripts

  ^ TOP

Unofficial transcripts may be obtained in person at the Registrar’s Office, and are released upon showing photo identification.  Official transcripts may be obtained in person or mailed.  Official transcripts requests must be made in writing, and a $9.00 fee is collected prior to releasing the transcript.  No transcripts will be released if the student has an unpaid financial obligation to the University.

Drop & Add Period

  ^ TOP

The drop/add period is the time period during which students may adjust their academic schedule for the term without financial or academic consequences. The last day of the drop/add period for a course is designated as the census date for that course and is the official date for enrollment reporting. The end of the drop and add period for standard and non-standard courses offered in a semester shall be the date the first 10 percent of the term ends or the day following the first class meeting, whichever is later. When calculating ten percent of the term, breaks of five or more days are not included when counting the total number of days but Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays are. Student registrations can only be added to courses after the end of the drop and add period by approval of the instructor and academic college dean.

Holds/Restrictions

A hold is an administrative action placed on your student record preventing you from receiving transcripts and registering for or dropping classes.  The hold is the result of a financial or administrative obligation to the university and will remain in place until the obligation is met.  Holds will be released once restitution or compliance has been met.  WebAdvisor refers to these holds as restrictions, preventing you from making changes to class schedules.

Census Date

  ^ TOP

The census date is the official date for enrollment reporting for a course. The official date for enrollment reporting, or census date, for standard courses shall be the date the first ten percent of the term ends.

For any nonstandard course, the census date must be calculated for the course based on the number of calendar meeting days for the course. Refer to BOR policy 5:7 for information on refunds.

Midterm Date

  ^ TOP

The Midterm date is determined by counting the number of class days from the beginning of a term and dividing by two and rounding up when the number of class days in a term is an odd number.

Date for a Grade of W

  ^ TOP

Undergraduate and graduate students who drop a course, or withdraw from the system, shall receive a grade of “W” if that action occurs anytime between the day after the census day for that course and the day that corresponds with the completion of 70% of the class days for that course. Likewise, a student who withdraws from the system during that time period also shall receive grades of “W” for all the courses in which he/she is registered. (Exception: a student who completely withdraws from the Regental system from the first day of a class(es) until the census date of the class(es) will also have a pseudo course of WD 101 (Undergraduate) or WD 801 (graduate) with a “W” grade entered on their transcript.) (Refer to policy 5:7.2)

For standard classes, the last day to receive a grade of “W” is determined by calculating 70% of the class meeting days in the term, counting from the first day of classes in the term and rounding up if the calculation produces a fractional value greater than or equal to 0.5.

For any nonstandard course, the last day to receive a grade of “W” is based on the number of class meeting days for the course, using the method described above.

A notation of the date of withdrawal will be included on the student’s transcript if he/she withdraws from the system. (Refer to policy 5:7.2) Students may not drop a course or withdraw from the system after the time period specified above. (Refer to policy 5:7.2)

Date for a Grade of Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory

  ^ TOP

Undergraduate and graduate students may choose the Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grade option within the Drop and Add Period (Prior to Census Date) as specified in 2:6.5.

Date for an Audit Grade

  ^ TOP

Undergraduate and graduate students may choose to audit a class within the Drop and Add Period (Prior to Census Date) as specified in 2:6.5.

Date for Submission of Midterm Deficient Academic Progress Report

  ^ TOP

Instructors will submit a deficient academic progress report for undergraduate students no later than five working days after the midterm date for Fall and Spring terms. Deficient academic progress reports will be made available to undergraduate students no later than eight working days after the midterm date for Fall and Spring terms via WebAdvisor.

Date for Submission of Term Grades

  ^ TOP

Instructors will submit (via WebAdvisor) all grades no later than three working days after the last day of final examinations for the term. Grades of NR (not reported) will be recorded by the Registrar’s Office for students whose instructor has missed this deadline.

Date for Entry of Term Grades

  ^ TOP

Faculty will enter grades via WebAdvisor no later than the third working day following the last day of finals. The Registrar’s Office at each university will verify grades no later than eight working days after the last day of final examinations for the term.

Withdrawal from the University

  ^ TOP

The Registrar’s Office (Woodburn 104) must be notified if a student decides to completely withdraw from school. The notification will be in writing, by fax, or in person. The student’s withdrawal date is the date the student began the withdrawal process or officially notified BHSU of intent to withdraw by contacting the Registrar’s Office.

For students who fail to officially withdraw, the institution may administratively withdraw the student. The withdrawal date for an administrative withdrawal will be determined at the University’s option to be:

    -   The midpoint of the enrollment period, or
  -   The last documented date of attendance at an academically related event, or
  -   The date an event occurred which prevented the student from officially withdrawing from the institution. Such events include illness, grievous personal loss, or other such circumstances beyond the student’s control.

A student is considered withdrawn during a term if classes have begun and:

    -   The student has registered for at least one course and the student has initiated withdrawal from all state-support and self-support courses at all Regental universities in which the student was actively enrolled at the time of withdrawal, including courses in progress as well as those that have not yet begun, or;
  -   The Regental home university has completed withdrawal procedures for administrative reasons including, without limitation, non-payment of tuition and fees, or disciplinary sanctions.
  -   Students enrolled in two or more Regental universities pursuant to financial aid consortia will be eligible for refunds as set forth herein only if they withdraw, drop out or are expelled from all classes at all Regental universities for which they have enrolled.

A student who is required to withdraw from the term or from a course after the final withdrawal date (BOR policy 2:6.8) due to illness or extenuating circumstances may petition the Vice President for Academic Affairs (of the student’s primary institution) for an exception to the final withdrawal date.

Definition of Credit

  ^ TOP

Unit of Credit is the measure of work done in carrying for one semester a subject of one class meeting a week or its equivalent. Each class meeting is accompanied by two hours of preparation. When the work is done in the classroom or laboratory and little or no outside preparation is required, the amount of time scheduled in class or laboratory is increased. Two or more hours may be required for one hour of credit in such cases.

Credits in Residence: A credit in residence within the Board of Regents system is a course offered by any of the degree-granting Regental institutions at any approved sites using any approved method of delivery.

Institutional Credit: An institutional credit is a credit offered by the degree granting institution and includes credits that are part of a formal collaborative agreement between that institution and another Regental institution.

Validated Credit: credit earned for college level courses by validation methods such as credit by exam, CLEP, AP, portfolio, etc. within the Regental system will not be considered “credits in residence”.

Placement in English, Mathematics, and Reading

  ^ TOP

Entering students must show evidence of their level of academic preparation prior to their enrollment into their initial mathematics, English, and Reading courses. All entering students seeking an associate or baccalaureate degree must provide valid Enhanced ACT scores (within the last five years) or must take the College Board Accuplacer examination in the areas of writing skills, mathematics, and reading.  All non-degree seeking students enrolling in English and mathematics courses must provide Enhanced ACT scores or must take the ACT COMPASS or the College Board Accuplacer examination in the areas of writing skills and mathematics.

In addition to scores on these assessments, other information such as high school GPA and curriculum completed may also be considered as placement decisions are made.

Transfer students who have completed equivalent general education coursework in English are exempt from this requirement.

Students transferring will be allowed to transfer their placement test scores and/or relevant course credits and continue their sequence of courses in English and/or mathematics.

Each institution shall give students prior notice that it will provide reasonable accommodations for test takers in keeping with institutional practices implementing the South Dakota Human Relations Act of 1972, the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (refer to Board Policy 1:19).

Pre-general education courses include ENGL 033, MATH 095 and READ 041.

Completion of Pre-General Education Courses - Students placed in pre-general education courses must enroll in and complete the courses within the first 30 credit hours attempted.

If a student does not complete the pre-general education course(s) within the first 30 credit hours attempted, a registration hold is placed on the student’s record. During the next 12 credit hours attempted, the student must enroll in and complete the pre-general education course(s).

If the pre-general education course(s) is not completed within the first 42 credit hours attempted, the only course(s) in which a student may enroll is the pre-general education course(s); and the student’s status is changed from degree seeking to non-degree seeking.

Students transferring from non-Regental institutions must enroll in pre-general education courses during the first semester of attendance. These students may enroll in other courses concurrently with the pre-general education courses. If the student does not complete the pre-general education courses during the first semester of attendance, the only course(s) in which a student may enroll is the pre-general education course(s); and the student’s status is changed from degree seeking to non-degree seeking. If the student is required to complete more than one pre-general education course in math, the student must complete one course the first semester and must enroll in the second pre-general education course in math during the second semester. The student may enroll in other courses the second semester concurrently with the second pre-general education course in math. If the student does not complete the second pre-general education course in math during the second semester of attendance, the only course(s) in which a student may enroll is the pre-general education course(s); and the student’s status is changed from degree seeking to non-degree seeking. The Vice President for Academic Affairs may grant an exception.

Credit Hours and Grades - Credit hours for the pre-general education courses are included in the total number of credit hours attempted, however they are NOT included in the total number of hours completed. The grades assigned for courses numbered less than 100 will be RS (Remedial Satisfactory) and RU (Remedial Unsatisfactory).

English Composition & Reading Placement Process

  ^ TOP

Placement through ACT: standardized test scores determine placement in English Composition courses. For students with valid ACT scores, the scale used for placement is:

**   Math Index (MI) = 250*HS.GPA + 17*MATH.ACT
     The column that gives the highest placement should be used.
     The fourth column is only to be used if no HS GPA is available.
     Accuplacer can be used to challenge placement. Challenges start at the current level of placement. If no MATH ACT is available, a student will start at the Accuplacer Elem Algebra level.

Challenging Placement - Students who place into English 033 but feel their ACT English Sub-score or their COMPASS Writing Exam or College Board Accuplacer score does not reflect their writing ability may challenge the placement in one of two ways. Students with a HS GPA of 2.099 or below may take the COMPASS Writing Exam or College Board Accuplacer ONCE (in the case of those with an ACT score) or TWICE (in the case of those with a COMPASS or College Board Accuplacer score.) Students with a HS GPA of 3.0 or above should sit for an essay exam with English faculty, at the BHSU Testing Center, or with a proctor; the essay will be evaluated for correct placement. A student or transfer student whose high school graduation date is five or more years from the placement semester should sit for the essay exam.

Students who place into READ 041 but feel their ACT Sub-score does not reflect their reading ability may challenge placement with the COMPASS or College Board Accuplacer exam if their HS GPA is 3.0 or above. A student or transfer student whose graduation date is five or more years from the placement semester should sit for the COMPASS or College Board Accuplacer exam to determine placement. If the COMPASS or College Board Accuplacer challenge still yields placement in READ 041, students may request an additional challenge and sit for a reading exam with the READ 041 instructor.

Students with an ACT score of twenty-eight (28) and above may challenge placement into ENGL 101 by taking the E-write Compass or College Board Accuplacer Exam to place into ENGL 201. Students who are placed in ENGL 201 are still required to take a total of six (6) hours of English for the general education requirement. ENGL 401 can be used as their second University writing course, or students may opt to CLEP the ENGL 101 to satisfy those hours prior to taking ENGL 201.

More information on placement measures

Credit by Special Examination

  ^ TOP

A student may demonstrate proficiency in an academic area by taking a special (college) examination. If a sufficiently high score is achieved, the student will receive University credit for a specific course without enrolling in the usual manner. The appropriate College Dean shall determine whether a student qualifies to take the examination and what constitutes proficiency on that examination. Students are not eligible for credit by special examination in courses for which they have previously received college credit. Special examination grades are recorded on a pass-fail basis and are not used in computing grade point averages.

Black Hills State University employs two basic testing procedures to grant credit for learning that occurs outside of the classroom; the College Level Examination Program (CLEP) Subject Examination, and Credit by Special Examination Program. These programs make it possible for an individual to earn college or university credits based on individual learning experiences or to aid in employment opportunities.

The CLEP Subject Examination is a widely accepted national testing program designed to assess student competencies in a number of subject areas. Students are limited to 32 semester hours earned by CLEP Special Examination, correspondence, military service schools, and extension courses from other colleges or universities. Academic credit awarded through CLEP will be applied to Black Hills State University degree requirements. Grades are not assigned for credit earned. If credit is to be applied to a program of study at Black Hills State University, the student is required to get written approval from the dean of the college in which the subject is offered, prior to testing. For information about the CLEP examination, call the Office of Academic Support at 605-642-6746. Refer to the South Dakota Board of Regents web site for approved courses and exams. www.sdbor.edu and search for CLEP Exams.

Because CLEP examinations are not available for certain undergraduate courses, the Credit by Special Examination Program has been developed. This option affords the student the opportunity to receive credit for courses taught at Black Hills State University. To pursue this option, the student must make arrangements with the dean of the college in which the class is offered. If the exam is successfully completed, the student will receive credit for the course. NOTICE: Special Exam credits will NOT transfer outside of the Regental system.

Advanced Placement

  ^ TOP

In accordance with the South Dakota Board of Regents and university policy, Black Hills State University encourages high school students to take advantage of the opportunities available to them through the Advanced Placement Program offered through College Board.

Students who complete Advanced Placement courses in their high schools and take the examination offered by College Board may be eligible to receive college credit at BHSU. Not only does this offer students the opportunity to take a more challenging high school class that helps prepare them for college, but it may also give them college credit at a reduced cost if they achieve a minimum score on the Advanced Placement exam. To get college credit, students must have an official transcript sent from College Board directly to the Enrollment Services at BHSU. Students who achieve the minimum scores listed below will be given credit for the appropriate class provided they enroll at BHSU and we have an official transcript.

DANTES Credits

  ^ TOP

Originally developed for military personnel, the DANTES program has been open to all college students since 1983. Developed by The Chauncey Group International LTD., a subsidiary of the Educational Testing Services (ETS), the program provides an opportunity for students to receive college credit for learning acquired outside the traditional college classroom. Colleges and universities throughout the United States administer the exams year-round. The exams are primarily multiple-choice exams and were developed by ETS using the same basic procedures they use for achievement test development. The DSST differ from CLEP in that the DSST may be given on demand, are semester oriented, do not have time limits, and include areas not covered by CLEP.

    2. If transfer credits are judged acceptable; these courses will be recorded, and equivalencies granted, using the following guidelines:
      1. If there are specific equivalent graduate courses at the university evaluating the credit, these specific courses should be used when granting equivalencies.
      2. If there are no equivalent graduate courses at the university evaluating the credit, these courses will be recorded, and equivalencies granted, using the following guidelines:
        1. If the academic discipline is available at the university evaluating the credit, but there is no discipline equivalent course, use the discipline prefix and the appropriate course level (700 for masters programs and 800 for doctoral programs).
        2. If the academic discipline in not available at the university evaluating the credit, use the GEN prefix and the appropriate course level (700 for masters programs and 800 for doctoral programs).
    3. Transfer grades not existing in the Regental grading scheme will be equated to the Regental grading system.
    4. In subsequent evaluation, all equivalencies may be re-evaluated, inactivated, or changed. Additional equivalencies may be added and evaluated. In subsequent evaluations, grades previously recorded cannot be changed.
    5. The university-specific plan of study requirements determine if the courses transferred are applicable to the student’s degree program at that university and if they meet the minimum grade criteria.

A Regental internal transfer process occurs when an undergraduate course is used on a converted credit basis to meet graduate plan of study requirements at Regental universities or when graduate credit is used on a converted or actual credit basis to meet undergraduate degree requirements for a Regental accelerated program. Refer to BOR policy 2:8.3.A and 2:8.3.B.

2:5 SOURCE: SDCL 13-49.1; BOR, April 1989; BOR, April 1992; BOR, June 1997; BOR, March 1998; BOR, August 1999, March 2001; BOR, May 2001; BOR, January 2002; BOR, March 2002; BOR, June 2002; BOR, August 2002; BOR, December 2002: BOR, May 2003, BOR, August 2003; BOR, December 2003; BOR, October 2004; BOR, June 2005; BOR, August 2005.

Technical Institute courses are designed to prepare students to enter the workforce for careers requiring less than a baccalaureate degree. Acceptance of these courses for credit at the South Dakota public universities is strictly the function of the receiving institution. Students who wish to transfer credits to a South Dakota public university for programs other than the Bachelor of Applied Technical Science degree should contact the Admissions Office of that desired university for an evaluation of their program objectives and technical institute transcript. An individual evaluation of course credits will be made by the receiving public university in accordance with institutional and Board of Regents policy.

Normal Progress

  ^ TOP

To complete the 120-semester hour graduation requirement in four academic years, a student must average fifteen semester hours per semester. To make normal progress the full-time undergraduate student must complete a minimum of twelve semester hours each semester, maintaining at least a 2.0 cumulative grade point average. (*Applicable upon accumulating more than six semester hours.)

The undergraduate student taking a partial load must complete a proportionate number of credit hours, maintaining at least a 2.0 grade point average. For example, the student taking a half-time load must have completed six semester hours with a grade point of 2.0 in order to make normal progress.

If students wish to register for courses which require placement exams, or prerequisite courses, registration will be granted based on a record of proper course sequence and/or successful completion of required placement exams.

Veterans Regulations - Normal Progress - Students who receive educational benefits from the Veterans Administration must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to continue in the program. The Veterans Affairs Office, Woodburn Student Success Center 135, will help you determine your status and assist in resolving the following concerns:

- Planning to attend BHSU
- Adding, dropping, or withdrawing from any course
- Total withdrawal from the University
- Change of major
- Change of mailing address
- Placement on academic probation or suspension
- A change in marital status
- A change in the number of dependents

Class Attendance

  ^ TOP

In general, enrollment in a class implies the responsibility for attending each class session. However, the attendance policy for a specific class is at the discretion of the faculty member teaching that class and will be outlined in the course syllabus. Students will be allowed to make up graded work if an absence is due to participation in university-sponsored activities, provided prior notification of the impending absence has been given to the instructor.

Minimum Class Size

  ^ TOP

The University reserves the right to cancel any semester class in which the enrollment is not ten or more. The University also reserves the right to cancel any summer class for which the number of students enrolled does not meet the minimum as determined by institution officials. Enrollment requirements for summer will vary.

Full/Half Time Status for Students

  ^ TOP

Full-time and part-time status is critical to the processes of registration, financial aid, residential life, federal and state enrollment reporting, and student activities. Overload status is determined to not allow a student to register in more than a reasonable load unless special approval is given after an analysis of the student’s past academic record. 

 

Graduate:

 

Undergraduate:

 

Full-Time Status = 9 hours
Half-Time Status = 4.5 hours
Overload Status = 12 hours

  Full-Time Status = 12 hours
Half -Time Status = 6 hours
Overload Status = 19 hours

Student Course Load

  ^ TOP

The maximum number of credit hours for which a student may enroll is eighteen hours per semester or seven hours per four week summer session.

A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.7 for all previous college work is required for those students wishing to petition the College Deans for an overload of courses.

Sixteen hours per semester or six hours per four week summer session is recommended for all students in good academic standing.

It is recommended that a student on academic probation limit their registration to fourteen hours per semester and five hours each four week summer session. Limits lower than this, may be recommended by the Academic Standards Committee.

Grades and Use of Grade Point Averages (GPA)

  ^ TOP

1. Undergraduate Grades

Undergraduate Grades will be assigned to the undergraduate academic level and to all courses and sections with course numbers ranging from 001 to 499. Plus and minus grades are not used.

Midterm Grades
Instructors will submit a deficient academic progress report for undergraduate students no later than three working days after the mid-term date for Fall and Spring terms. Deficient academic progress reports will be made available (via WebAdvisor) to undergraduate students no later than eight working days after the mid-term date for Fall and Spring terms.

Final Grades
Final grades will not be mailed; students may get their final grades from WebAdvisor using their id and password information. Final grades are posted to WebAdvisor by faculty and are due on the third day following the last day of final exams. Students may obtain an official transcript from the Registrar’s Office for a fee of $9.00. This request must be requested in writing with the student’s signature. An unofficial transcript may be requested in person at no charge.

2. Undergraduate Grade Descriptions, Uses, and Restrictions

2.1. AU: An Audit (AU) grade may be granted only when the student has elected to AU option on or prior to the census date of the term. Registration as an auditor is enrollment for information instruction only. Regular attendance at class or classes is customary without other participation and without credit. The cost to audit a course is the established Board of Regents approved tuition and fee rate. Registration for audit may be limited by space or permission of the instructor. The decision to audit a course must be made prior to the census date of the semester and is irreversible after census. Forms to audit a course are available in the Registrar’s Office.

2.2. CR: A credit (CR) grade may be granted only for non-course credit that is not related to an examination or to equating transfer grades to the BOR grading system. This grade is not used for any Regental university course.

2.3. EX: An examination for credit (EX grade may be granted only for non-course credit validation obtained through a validation process. This grade is not used for any Regental university course.

2.4. I: An incomplete (I) grade may be granted only when all of the following conditions apply:

  • A student has encountered extenuating circumstances that do not permit him/her to complete the course.
  • The student must be earning a passing grade at the time the Incomplete is necessitated. Anticipated course failure is not a justification for an incomplete.
  • The student does not have to repeat the course to meet the requirements.
  • The instructor must agree to grant an incomplete grade.
  • The instructor and student must agree on a plan to complete the coursework.
  • The coursework must be completed within one semester; extensions may be granted by the Chief Academic Affairs Officer.
  • If the student completes the course within the specified time, the grades that may be assigned are A, B, C, D, F, S, RS, RU, or U.
  • If the student does not complete the course within the specified time, the grade assigned will be F (Failure) or U (Unsatisfactory) or RU (Remedial Unsatisfactory) if the student had requested S/U within the time specified in BOR Policy 2:6, section 9.

2.5. IP: An in progress (IP) grade may be granted only when all of the following conditions apply:

  • The requirements for the course (for every student enrolled in the course) extend beyond the current term.
  • The extension beyond the current term must be defined before the class begins.
  • The instructor must request permission to award IIP grades for a course from their Department Head of Dean, and then approval must be obtained from the Chief Academic Affairs Officer.
  • A definite date for completion of the course must be established in the course syllabus.

2.6. NG: A grade of NG will be used only with those course sections that are designated as Tracking/Program Sustaining (Q) and those that are assigned the code for Master’s Research Problems/Projects Sustaining, Thesis Sustaining, or Dissertation Sustaining (U).

2.7. RI, RS, RU: Remedial Grades (RI, RS, RU) may be granted only for courses numbered 001 to 099.

2.8. S/U: A Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (S/U) grade may be granted only when the entire course requires the S/U grade of the student has elected the S/U option on or prior to the census date of the term.

2.9. SP: A satisfactory progress (SP) grade may be granted only for students enrolled in MATH 095. If the grade of SP is awarded the following conditions apply:

  • The grade is an alternative to RS and RU.
  • The student must have made satisfactory progress during the course but the students did not develop mastery of all the required content. If the student successfully mastered the materials, the grade of RS should be assigned. If satisfactory progress was not made, the grade of RU should be assigned.

2.10. WD: Beginning with the Fall 2015 term, a grade of withdrawal (WD) may be assigned only six times during a student’s undergraduate career. If the student drops additional classes, a grade of WFL will be assigned. Withdrawal grades assigned to continuously enrolled students prior to this term will not count against the limit. Additionally, those withdrawal grades assigned at a non-Regental institution prior to entry as a transfer students will not be counted against the six course limits. This limit does not include W grades assigned if a students withdraws from all classes in a given term, which will be assigned a WW grade. The campus Chief Academic Affairs Officer may make exceptions to this requirement in those cases where there are unique factors. 

Last Date of Academic Activity

  ^ TOP

Each university must have in place a practice for determining and recording the Last Date of Academic Activity, whenever reporting a final grade of F, U, or RU.

Definition and Calculation of Grade Point Averages

  ^ TOP

3. The following grade point averages are calculated each academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer):

3.1. Institutional GPA: based on credits earned at a specific Regental university. Utilized to determine if degree requirements have been met and to determine Honors Designation at Graduation.

3.2. System Term GPA: based on credits earned at any of the six Regental universities within a given academic term (Fall, Spring, Summer). Utilized to determine minimum progression status.

3.3. Transfer GPA: based on credits earned and officially transferred from an accredited college or university outside the Regental system. When a letter grade that normally calculates into the grade point average exists for a non-academic course (e.g., credit earned via examination), it will be included in the transfer GPA.

3.4. Cumulative GPA: based on all credits earned by the student (transfer credit plus system credit). Utilized to determine minimum progression status and to determine if degree requirements have been met and to determine Honors Designation at graduation.

3.4.1. What a course has been repeated for credit, all attempts will be entered on the transcript, but the last grade earned will be used in the calculation of the cumulative grade point average (See also 2:5, section B.7).

Registration Retake Policy

  ^ TOP

This policy deals with how many times the student may register for a course. The retake policies approved by the BOR are:

    -   THREE - a student will be allowed a total of three takes for undergraduate courses (course numbers of 001 to 499) for which credit is only counted toward graduation once. The student must petition to the VPAA to be permitted to take an undergraduate course more than three times. At the undergraduate level only the LAST attempt (take) of the course will count toward graduation and into grade point average calculations.
  -   TWO - a student will be allowed a total of two takes for graduate courses (course numbers of 500 and above) for which credit is only counted toward graduation once. The student must petition to the Graduate Dean to be permitted to take a graduate course more than two times.
  -   UNLIMITED - a student will be allowed unlimited takes for a graduate or undergraduate course for which credit toward graduation may be received more than once. (e.g., Problems courses, Independent Study, Thesis, etc.) All attempts will count into grade point average calculations. Please note that individual departments/majors may limit the number of credits allowed toward graduation in certain courses. Students should read their University Bulletin and/or check with their major advisor.
  -   The only grade that will not be counted as a retake of a course is the Audit (AU) grade. All other grades, including a “W” grade, will count as a retake of a course.
  -   Transfer courses and non-courses (CLEP, credit by exam) will also count as a retake of a course.
  -   The count for retakes will begin with courses in which the student is enrolled Fall Semester 2003. For example, if a student takes SOC 100 during Fall 2003, that attempt would be the first attempt. Attempts in a course prior to Fall 2003 will not be counted.

Academic Suspension

  ^ TOP

Academic suspension is a serious action, which will cause interruption of the student’s academic career. If placed on academic suspension, courses for which the student has pre-registered will be canceled. Notification of academic suspension will be sent to each suspended student by letter. The suspension letter will be accompanied by information regarding appeal procedures and options. A suspended student who wishes to re-enroll at Black Hills State University must petition for admission through the Academic Standards Committee. When appropriate, the student’s dean will be asked to append his or her recommendation regarding readmission, and return the petition to the Academic Standards Committee.

The student will be notified in writing of the decision of the Academic Standards Committee. The student will be denied registration privileges until an appeal is approved. Should the student’s petition be approved, the student will be permitted to reenroll under the terms of academic probation and will be required to follow an individualized plan which could include tutoring sessions, skill-based courses, repeated courses, limited enrollment or any other action the Academic Standards Committee stipulates. The decision of the Academic Standards Committee will be considered final in all matters concerning academic probation and suspension.

While the Academic Standards Committee governs readmission; the Center for Academic Success on the BHSU campus is available to provide assistance for students who wish to initiate appeals. Staff at the Center for Academic Success will be available to explain the procedures for appeal, counsel the student regarding their plans for returning to school, and organize contacts with other offices needed to answer the student’s specific questions.

Students under academic or disciplinary suspension at other institutions are not eligible to enroll at BHSU. Transfer students who fail to inform Black Hills State University of current academic or disciplinary suspension status are subject to immediate dismissal.

General Appeal Process

  ^ TOP

This policy governs academic disputes involving students. Such disputes most commonly arise as a result of student dissatisfaction with assigned grades, but students may also invoke the standards and procedures provided under this policy to challenge academic responses to instances involving alleged student academic misconduct or to challenge other decisions, justified on academic grounds, that affect their participation in or completion of university academic programs.

Timing and Substantive Conditions on Appeals

Academic appeals may be brought only by students who were registered during the term in which the disputed action was taken.

Academic appeals may be brought only from final course grades or other actions that have similar finality, such as, without limitation, denial of admission to an undergraduate major or refusal to permit the continuation of an academic program.

Academic appeals must be brought within thirty calendar days from the date that the student received notification of the action.  If this action occurs within fifteen calendar days before the end of the term, the student must bring an appeal within fifteen calendar days after the beginning of the academic term (fall, spring, or summer) following the term in which the challenged action was taken.  A student may petition the president or president’s designee for an extension of this timeline if circumstances prevented a timely appeal.

Academic appeals may be brought to challenge a grade or academic decision typically on one or more of three grounds:

  • if an academic decision resulted from administrative error or from misapprehension of some material fact or circumstance, e.g., evaluation reflected an error in the examination or question itself or misread the student’s written response;
  • if an academic decision departs substantially from accepted academic standards for the discipline and the university; or
  • if circumstances suggest that an academic decision reflected the prejudiced or capricious consideration of student opinions or conduct unrelated to academic standards, of student status protected under Board policy, state or federal civil rights law or of other considerations that are inconsistent with the bona fide exercise of academic judgment.

Appeals Procedure

University presidents shall be responsible for establishing appeals procedures for the campuses.

BHSU has established the following procedure to review grade appeals and/or allegations that an academic evaluation was tainted by prejudiced consideration of student opinions or conduct unrelated to academic standards. This process shall prohibit retaliation against persons who initiate appeals or who participate in the review of appeals. All parties will adhere to the provisions for confidentiality required in such a process.

Step 1: The student should first attempt to resolve the problem with the instructor involved.

Step 2: If the problem is not resolved by the action taken in Step 1, the student must present a written grievance at the lowest administrative level having authority to resolve the appeal (usually the department chair). The grievance must be filed within 10 working days of the date on which the incident, situation, or circumstance occurred. The administrator upon receiving the grievance will investigate the matter in a thorough and appropriate manner and respond to the grievant within 10 working days.

Step 3 : If the grievance is not resolved at Step 2, the student may formally appeal to the administrator at the next level (usually the college dean). That administrator will conduct an appropriate and thorough investigation of the alleged incident, situation, or circumstance, and prepare a decision on the grievance within 15 working days of the date of receipt of the Step 3 grievance. The student may be notified in person or by certified mail regarding this decision.

Step 4 : If the grievance is not resolved at Step 3, the student may formally appeal to the BHSU Academic Standards Committee within 10 working days of the notification to the student as to the decision rendered in the previous step. The Committee will conduct an appropriate and thorough investigation of the alleged incident, situation, or circumstance and prepare a recommendation for the Vice President of Academic Affairs within 20 working days of the receipt of the Step 4 grievance. Within twenty days after the recommendation, the Vice President for Academic Affairs shall notify the grievant in person or by certified mail regarding his/her decision. Adopted by BHSU 6-7-2006; and Amended 7-27-06

Black Hills State University officially graduates students at the end of fall, spring, and summer terms. The University holds a commencement in May and December. All graduates are expected to be present for commencement. Summer candidates are invited to participate in the May commencement preceding the completion of their work.

With the exception of summer graduates, students will not participate in the graduation ceremony unless all course work will be completed by the commencement date.

Teaching Certificates - A degree granted by Black Hills State University does not in itself entitle the holder to teach in South Dakota or in any other state. Said degrees entitle the holder to apply for a teaching certificate in the office of professional teacher certification in the state in which they desire to teach. Applications for South Dakota certification are available in the Field Experience Office, Jonas 203.

Bachelor of Science in Education - This is a four-year program that prepares students to teach at the secondary, middle, or elementary school level based on the major selected. All education programs conform to the requirements of the State Department of Education, Board of Regents of South Dakota, National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, and North Central Association.

Bachelor of Arts - This is a four-year program in which students are required to demonstrate proficiency in a foreign language. Students are required to take a beginning I & II and intermediate I & II sequence with a minimum of twelve semester hours of a foreign language. This is a non-teaching program and emphasis is placed on the major/minor selected by the student. A Bachelor of Arts can only be awarded for the following majors:  Art, English, History and Spanish.

Bachelor of Science - This is a four-year program designed for students who do not wish to teach. Emphasis is placed on the major/minor selected by the student. This is a non-teaching program.

Bachelor of Fine Arts - This is an intensive, four-year program designed for students who are preparing for careers related to the production of art. Students begin with a core of general art classes with an emphasis in studio work rather than lecture and discussion. They then progress to advanced courses in one of three areas of interest: graphic design, photography, and studio art (which includes painting, drawing, and three-dimensional design). This degree is not appropriate for students seeking teacher certification in art.

Bachelor of General Studies - This is a four-year program designed for students who have accumulated credits without meeting the requirements for a BA or BS degree, and for students who change their minds after completing many hours in another program.

Associate of Science/Associate of Arts - These are two-year programs with emphasis placed on the major selected by the student. These are non-teaching programs. Upon completion of thirty-two credit hours of enrollment, students enrolled in these programs must take and pass the Rising Junior Examination.

Minors - Degree seeking students may complete requirements for a minor at any Regental university that has been approved to grant that minor. This minor will be recorded on the transcript in conjunction with a degree/major at that university or a degree/major at any other Regental university. A minor will only be recorded on the transcript in conjunction with a degree and major.

Multiple Baccalaureate Degrees - Students who combine majors that cannot be awarded to the same degree will be permitted to eliminate one minor.  A student must complete all requirements for one degree (e.g., general education, any general electives, and either a composite major, a regular major with minor, or a teaching major).  The other degree can be earned without the minor.  Students may not use the same major for both a BS and BSED, unless the BS is a composite major.

Second Degree Requirements - Students holding a bachelor’s degree from another regionally accredited institution may earn a second undergraduate degree from BHSU by completing the following requirements:

    -   The student must complete or have completed all required courses in the major and minor. The professional education courses are included if the student is seeking a teaching degree.
