Glossary Term Definition Bachelor's Degree An award conferred by CSU signifying that the recipient has satisfactorily completed a minimum of 120 credit hours in an undergraduate course of study. Catalog Updates The General Catalog is published online once annually prior to the beginning of the fall term. Changes made to policy or curriculum after publication that are effective in the catalog year (spring or summer terms) will be noted in the Catalog Updates section of the General Catalog (left navigation bar under “About the Catalog"). Certificate - Graduate A Graduate Certificate is used to identify the successful completion of a focused area of study deemed important to a student's career objectives. A Graduate Certificate consists of a minimum of 9 specified credits, and not more than 15 credits at the 500 level or above. Certificate - Undergraduate An Undergraduate Certificate is used to identify the successful completion of a focused area of study deemed important to a student's career objectives. Certificates are an option and are offered by certain departments. An undergraduate certificate consists of a minimum of 9 specified credits, and not more than 15 credits. A minimum of 9 credits must be course work at the upper-division level (300-400). CEU Continuing Education Unit (CEU) or Continuing Education Credit (CEC) is a measure used in continuing education programs, often those required in a licensed profession, for the professional to maintain a license or certification. Concentration A concentration is a sequence of at least 12 semester credits of designated courses within a major designed to accommodate specific interests of undergraduate students. Credit Unit that gives weight to the value, level or time requirements of an academic course taken at CSU Credit hour A credit hour is defined as 50 minutes of lecture or discussion/recitation per week for 16 weeks (800 minutes in a semester), 100 minutes of laboratory per week for 16 weeks (1600 minutes in a semester) when outside preparation is required, or 150 minutes of laboratory per week for 16 weeks (2400 minutes in a semester) when no outside preparation is required. Credit load For workload planning purposes (and to graduate with 120 credits in eight semesters), students should plan on an average of 15 credits per semester and should expect that each credit hour will require approximately two to three hours (for some students in some classes, more time and in a few classes less time) of effort per week to accomplish readings and out-of-class assignments in preparation for successful completion of the course requirements. Degree An academic degree is the recognized completion of studies at CSU. A diploma is issued in recognition of having satisfactorily completed the prescribed course of study. Degree Completion Program Selected undergraduate majors offered by CSU, student usually transfers in 60 credits from another institution(s) and completes the degree at CSU. Diploma An academic credential issued by CSU signifying the recipient has successfully completed a particular course of study, which confers the degree. Faculty - Instructor Initial rank usually given to faculty members who have yet to complete the terminal degree (e.g., doctorate). Faculty - Assistant Professor A college or university faculty member early in their career, quality performance may lead to advancement to associate professor. Faculty - Associate Professor A college or university faculty member whose performance in teaching, research and scholarly activities, and service has advanced to associate professor. Faculty - Full Professor Faculty member who has attained the rank of professor (may be referred to as 'full professor') and is recognized for accomplishments at CSU, nationally, and internationally in their field. Grade mode - Instructor Option Allows the instructor to choose and inform the class whether Traditional or (S/U) Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading will be used for a course. Grade mode - Student Option Either Traditional or Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory grading selected by the student at the time of registration. Grade mode - Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory Performance equivalent to a grade of C or better is recorded as Satisfactory. Performance equivalent to D or F is recorded as Unsatisfactory. Neither S or U grades are used in calculating the CSU GPA. Grade mode - Traditional Uses letter grades A to F. Instructor has the option to use pluses (+) or minuses (-) as indicated in the catalog section on Grading. Graduate level Degrees at the masters, doctorate, or professional level. Graduate level courses are those numbered 500 and above. Incomplete (grade) Used when circumstances prevent student from completing course work, agreement to be made with instructor for completion. An "I" grade converts to F if not completed within one year. Independent Study Indivdiualized learning not available in courses, which allows a student to work independently with the approval and guidance of a supervising instructor for predetermined credits. Interdisciplinary Studies Program Graduate level program that is intra-college (within one college) or intra-university (across disciplines of more than one college). They are a series of courses focused on a particular problem or area of concern providing mulit-disciplinary perspectives.

Graduation Procedures and Information

http://catalog.colostate.edu/general-catalog/academic-standards/graduation/

The Student Bill of Rights (also known as Colorado Revised Statute § 23-1-125) notes that a student may formalize a plan to obtain a degree in four years. Colorado State University supports this timeline for graduation by publishing Major Completion Maps defining a common four-year course progression for most majors. (There are some majors a student may not be able to complete in eight semesters because of additional degree requirements recognized by the Colorado Department of Higher Education.)

Major in Agricultural Education, Agricultural Literacy Concentration

http://catalog.colostate.edu/general-catalog/colleges/agricultural-sciences/agricultural-resource-economics/education-literacy-concentration/

An integral part of a complete agricultural education system is agricultural literacy. Agricultural literacy is the synthesis, instruction, and communication of basic information about agriculture to the public. Potential occupations may include assisting educators, producers, industry groups, and others to effectively incorporate information about agriculture into subjects being taught or examined in public and private forums. Agricultural literacy is education about agriculture. The agricultural literacy programming and training in this degree area will focus on a wide-range of ages (from early childhood to adult), audiences (rural, urban, ethnically diverse, etc.) and a variety of agriculture topics. Coursework includes technical agriculture and natural resources content knowledge, communications, philosophy, and human development. Students are required to complete an internship in agricultural literacy. Students graduating with a degree in Agricultural Education with a concentration in Agricultural Literacy would have to complete additional educational coursework in order to teach in public schools in Colorado.

Major in Art (BA), Art Education Concentration

http://catalog.colostate.edu/general-catalog/colleges/liberal-arts/art-history/art-major-ba/art-major-art-education/

The Art Education concentration embraces the artist-teacher concept, which allows students to develop a studio concentration while preparing to teach art at the K-12 level. The program is comprehensive, meaning students take course work to prepare them to teach at the elementary and secondary school levels. One full semester of student teaching at both the elementary and secondary levels is preceded by in-depth field work with elementary, secondary, and exceptional populations. The Art Education program enjoys good working relationships with school districts in the state of Colorado. Students integrate studio, art history, criticism, and aesthetics as they observe and teach—through a variety of experiences—in the public schools.
