Introduction to Course Requirement in Higher Education

Note: This requirement must be completed by passing the course, no later than the second semester of attendance at Cal State L.A.

University policy requires that all undergraduate students who do not have a bachelor's degree are required to pass a course that introduces them to higher education at Cal State LA. Freshmen who have declared a major must meet this requirement by enrolling in the IHE course, usually titled Transition to Higher Education, offered by the College of their major. Freshmen who have not declared a major should enroll in a section of UNIV 1010 - Introduction to Higher Education, offered through the University Academic Advisement Center. Students who fulfill this requirement do not have to repeat it if they decide to change majors.

Undergraduate transfer students may choose to complete a Transition to Cal State LA course (3000 level) offered by the appropriate College.

All students with declared majors should see an academic advisor in their college/department prior to enrolling in the 1000-level Introduction to Higher Education course or the 3000-level Transition to Cal State L.A. course.

Undeclared majors should see an academic advisor in the University Advisement Center, located in the University Library Palmer Wing, 1040A. Students who fulfill this requirement do not have to repeat it if they change majors.

General Information

Class Scheduling Information

Overview

University Scheduling works with academic departments and colleges to coordinate class scheduling and the publication of the online Schedule of Classes for fall and spring semesters, and with the College of Professional and Global Education (PaGE) for the winter and summer intersessions.

Class Meeting Patterns

All classes should be scheduled following the approved meeting patterns. Approved meeting patterns are designed to meet credit hour compliance, facilitate efficient use of instructional space, alleviate time conflicts, and provide students with a reasonable variety of class schedule options.

Officially, Tuesday/Thursday 3:00-4:30 p.m. is the “all campus” hour. However, there is no prohibition against offering classes during that time. Departments may offer classes during that time if they choose to do so. As a consideration to students, a class that is offered during the “all campus” hour should have more than one section so that a student has the option of preserving the “all campus” hour during their schedule.

Scheduler Resources and Guides

Business process guides, timelines, and other resources are available to department and college schedulers to support class scheduling. Resources may be accessed via SharePoint (password protected).

Event Scheduling Information

Overview

University Scheduling reserves instructional space (i.e. classrooms) for events and special programs, including but not limited to college and department meetings and extracurricular programs and activities.

Classroom Request Guidelines

Requests to reserve instructional space must be approved by the designated scheduler and submitted to University Scheduling no later than three (3) business days prior to the requested event date. To request reservation of instructional space, fax a completed Classroom Request Form to University Scheduling at 3-3934. Requests will be processed with priority given to scheduled classes.

Students who wish to reserve instructional space on behalf of an organization or club must submit their request through Information & Event Services and be in compliance with the Guidelines for Campus Facility Reservation.

University Scheduling is currently unable to reserve instructional space for dates during final exams or Commencement, or for dates on which the campus will be closed.

Classroom Request Form

The Classroom Request Form is available to department and college schedulers via SharePoint (password protected).

Information for Veterans

Veterans and Dependents: Federal and State Programs of Education

Under Title 38, U.S. code, chapters 30, 31, 32, 33, 35, 106, and applicable Veterans’ Administration regulations, all eligible veterans and persons must select and pursue a program of education (degree objective) or training to assist them in attaining an educational, professional, or vocational goal.

All eligible veterans or persons must maintain satisfactory academic progress as defined by the university. (Contact the Registrar’s Office, Admin 401, for information and regulations governing satisfactory progress.) Failure to maintain satisfactory academic progress may subject the eligible veteran mandatory counseling by the Veterans’ Administration before benefits are reinstated. A veteran who is declared eligible for benefits under Veterans’ administration regulations must be matriculated and officially enrolled and must have had all prior training evaluated by the University.

Veterans’ Responsibilities

All veterans are responsible for reporting their academic program each semester they attend. All additions or reductions in units or withdrawal from the university must be promptly reported to the Veterans Resource Center KH D147.  Failure to report changes promptly constitutes violation of federal law and may subject the veteran to a fine, imprisonment, or both.

Dependents of California Veterans

Prior to registration, students enrolled under this program must contact the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, Division of Educational Assistance, 11000 Wilshire Blvd., Room 5203, Los Angeles, CA 90024, (310) 235-7155, to obtain the required authorization to receive benefits under the Cal-Vet program.

Disabled Veterans

Disabled veteran-students attending Cal State LA must contact the Vocational Rehabilitation Division of the Veterans’ Administration, (310) 235-7588, prior to registration to obtain a letter of authorization for the current academic year. A V.A. vocational rehabilitation counselor is assigned to Cal State LA and can be contacted at the Veterans Resource Center KH D147 if questions or problems arise with veteran-students eligible under Chapter 31, Title 38, U.S. Code.

Post 9/11 GI Bill

This veteran’s educational assistance act is for individuals that served on active duty on or after September 10, 2001. Veteran-students must file an application to receive benefits under Chapter 33 directly with the VA. Those students attending under this program must submit a Request for Certification card to the Veterans Resource Center, KH D147 prior to payment of fees each semester.
