7 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 7 II. College Policies Statement Acknowledging Changes to the Student Handbook All policies and procedures within this student handbook are subject to federal, state, and local law as well as national and state governing bodies. As changes in the law or policy by one or more of these agencies occur, corresponding changes to the handbook are necessary. Students are advised that these changes may occur with or without prior notice. Student Code of Conduct Columbus State Community College (CSCC) has a high standard of conduct for members of its college community, including students. Consistent with the educational mission of the College, CSCC students are expected to perform all work honestly, maintain prescribed academic standards, pay all debts to the college, and respect the property and rights of others. To ensure the maintenance of an environment conducive to the attainment of the educational mission of CSCC, the President is authorized to establish such rules and regulations as are deemed appropriate and necessary for the orderly operation of the college. In addition to these rules, the behaviors enumerated under Academic and Behavioral Misconduct may result in penalties up to and including expulsion from the college. Should the concern involve allegations of violations of students civil rights by employees, including but not limited to sexual harassment, sexual misconduct, and/or harassment, the matter will be referred to the college s EEO officer for disposition. The student conduct process at CSCC is not intended to punish students. Rather, it exists to protect the interests of the college community and to challenge those whose behavior is not in accordance with our policies. Sanctions are intended to challenge students moral and ethical decision-making and to help them bring their behavior into accord with our community expectations. When a student is unable to conform his/her behavior to community expectations, the student conduct process may determine that he/she should no longer share in the privilege of participating in the CSCC community. Students should be aware that the student conduct process is different from criminal and civil court proceedings. Procedures and rights in student conduct proceedings are conducted with fairness to all, but do not include the same protections of due process afforded by the courts. Due process, within these procedures, assures timely written notice and a hearing before an objective decision-maker. Students continue to be subject to city, state, and federal laws while at CSCC, and allegations, charges or violations of those laws may also constitute violations of the Student Code of Conduct. In such instances, CSCC may proceed with disciplinary action under the Student Code of Conduct independently of any criminal proceeding involving the same conduct and may impose sanctions for violation of the Student Code of Conduct even if such criminal proceeding is not yet resolved or is resolved in the student's favor. No student will be found in violation of CSCC policy without information showing by a preponderance of the evidence that a policy violation occurred. In CSCC s sole discretion, sanctions will be proportionate to the severity of the violation(s). The full Student Code of Conduct can be accessed through the current College Catalog.
8 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 8 Disclosure for Students Pursuing Health and Human Services Programs Students who are pursuing degrees or certificates leading to application for professional licensure or certification, and/or who will be participating in clinical placements, internships, practicums, or similar experience through their program, should be aware that Columbus State Community College may require a criminal background check, fingerprinting, or drug screening prior to placement or acceptance into such a program. Each student is responsible for paying for the background check or other screening process as required by the program. Should the background check indicate a conviction, the academic program will make reasonable efforts to place students. However, it will be up to the host facility to determine whether a student will be allowed to perform his/her clinical placement, internship, practicum, or similar experience at that facility. If it is unlikely that a placement can be found, the academic program may deny acceptance into the program of study. Students shall further be aware that a criminal record may jeopardize licensure by the state certification body. Students should consult the licensing certification body corresponding with their intended occupation for details. Successful completion of a program of study at the College does not guarantee licensure, certification or employment in the relevant occupation. Standards may change during a student s program of study.

The policy can be accessed at the following web address: Grade Grievance Procedure and Grade Grievance Form The Columbus State Community College grade grievance procedure provides a method of recourse to students who reasonably believe that a final course grade was assigned in error. This is intended for students who believe the instructor made an error in computing the final grade, evaluated the student using different standards than applied to others in the class or failed to follow the grading policy as stated in the course section syllabus.
11 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 11 The College will maintain a Grade Grievance Committee whose purpose is to determine if a grade grievance appeal is warranted in accordance with procedure 5-09 (D), and facilitate the grade grievance hearing panel appeal process. The committee is composed of eleven members, five of whom are faculty members from the Arts and Sciences division, five of whom are from the Career and Technical division, and one faculty representative from the Columbus State Education Association (CSEA). Committee members are chosen by the dean of the respective division. Committee members will serve a term of three years, with approximately one-third of the members rotating off the committee each year after the second year. Two committee members, one from each division, are appointed to serve as co-chairpersons by the division deans. Grade Grievance Process a. When a student s final grade has been posted to his/her transcript, and the student believes that an error in evaluating or recording a grade has occurred, the student must first contact the instructor no later than the end of the second week of the semester following the posting of the grade. If the instructor of record is no longer affiliated with the College, the student shall contact the department chairperson or his/her designee. b. After discussion with the student, the instructor of record will determine whether or not an error in grading has been made and will communicate his/her decision to the student and department chairperson within five business days of the student contact. If the instructor agrees that an error in grading has occurred, the instructor must authorize the Records and Registration Department to change the grade on the student s transcript. c. If the instructor disagrees that an error has been made the instructor has five (5) business days to notify the student. If the student remains dissatisfied with the instructor s reasoning, the student must complete and submit a Grade Grievance form (available in the Office of the Registrar) and supporting documentation to the department chairperson or designee within seven (7) calendar days of notification from the instructor. d. If the instructor does not respond within five (5) business days, the student has an additional seven (7) calendar days to complete and submit a Grade Grievance form (available in the Office of the Registrar). When submitted, the form must include a written statement from the student clearly stating why the disputed grade should be changed along with documentation supporting the student s claim. After consulting with the instructor and student, the department chairperson or designee must communicate to the student and instructor his/ her decision within four (4) business days. e. If the chairperson upholds the awarded grade, the chairperson informs the student that he/she may appeal the decision to the College Grade Grievance Committee. The chairperson submits the Grade Grievance form and supporting documentation to the College Grade Grievance Committee for a possible hearing.
12 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 12 f. The College Grade Grievance Committee co-chairpersons will review the documentation and determine whether or not the grievance warrants a formal hearing panel and communicate their decision to the student, instructor and chairperson. g. If a hearing panel is warranted, a hearing panel will be formed to review the grievance. The hearing panel will be composed of three faculty members: two faculty members will be from the department in which the grievance originated and will be chosen by the department chairperson, and one faculty will be selected by the College Grade Grievance Committee co-chairpersons from the College Grade Grievance Committee to chair the hearing panel and be from a department other than the department from which the grade is being grieved. h. The student may be accompanied at the hearing by a College official (faculty, administrator or full-time staff) to provide personal support in a non-speaking role. i. The hearing panel shall consult with both the instructor and the student, separately, at an agreed upon time to determine the validity of the grievance. The student and instructor are encouraged to use this opportunity to provide written and verbal information regarding the grade grievance to the panel. The hearing panel will rule on the validity of the grade grievance based on this information. If the instructor is no longer affiliated with the College, the department chairperson or designee may meet with the hearing panel in lieu of the instructor. j. After consideration, the hearing panel shall inform both the student and instructor of the hearing panel s decision and submit a report of its findings to the department chairperson either confirming the student s grade remains as assigned by the instructor or asserting the grade be changed. In the latter case, the department chairperson will implement a change of grade to the Records and Registration department. k. The decision of the hearing panel is final and may not be appealed. Minor changes to this procedure that do not unreasonably prejudice the parties shall not be grounds to invalidate the process. For more information, please refer to Procedure 5-09D of the Columbus State Community College Policy and Procedures Manual located at: Liability Insurance Liability insurance is a requirement of all Dietetic Technician students before entering the supervised practice portion of the curriculum. This is purchased for you by the college and is covered by lab fees in Dietetic Technician Practicums I and III. This policy only covers you during supervised practice experiences.

To qualify for graduation you will need to attain a 2.00 grade point average (GPA) or higher in each category. Many of the courses require a C grade (2.00) to proceed to another course. Specific information about each course can be found in the College Catalog course descriptions. After graduation, the program coordinator will complete a verification form and give you several copies. This is a document that confirms you have completed a legitimate dietetic technician program. Future employers may request an original copy during the application process and CDR may need a copy to document you qualify to take the examination. After you have qualified for graduation and received the Associate of Applied Science (A.A.S.) degree, the program coordinator will submit documentation to the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR) stating you are eligible to take the national examination to become a Nutrition and Dietetics Technician Registered (NDTR).

Practicum days/times may not be changed without the faculty instructor s permission.

The responsibility of missed instruction falls upon the student to learn, and missed assignments must be completed as determined by the faculty. Vacations/Work Conferences - All vacations or work conferences must be scheduled during semester breaks. Program Schedule - The Columbus State academic calendar is the basis for dates of attendance at the supervised practice sites ( Only those dates designated by the college academic calendar as holidays will be observed.

22 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 22 Confidentiality- All persons/patients including your relatives, friends, and acquaintances have the privacy right to have all information regarding their history, treatment, care and prognosis remain confidential. You will not discuss any information with the person/patient, family, or others. If the person/patient or family requests information, you must refer the question to your preceptor. A person s records are confidential and information concerning the person must not be discussed with the person/patient, the person s family or visitors, or with anyone who is not directly concerned with the supervision and treatment of the person. When in doubt concerning the issue of confidentiality, it is best not to communicate information and to confer with your preceptor for clarification. As a member of the Dietetic Technician Program, you represent not only the College, but also the affiliating supervised practice site in your contacts with the employees, patients, visitors and members of the community. The impression you leave with each person is very important to the site and all the people involved in the health care team as well as your fellow students. The site affiliation reserves the right to refuse admission to any Dietetic Technician student who is involved in any activity not considered professional or conducive to proper dietetic practice. Uniform Requirements- Laboratory and Practicum Course Dress Standard Purpose Statement: Dress code standards are required for reasons of professionalism, safety and uniformity. Proper dress and a well-groomed professional appearance also reflect current infection control and safety guidelines recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and enforced by Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). College guidelines for dress and conduct reinforce our commitment to all federal, state and local regulations as part of an ongoing effort to maintain the safest, most contemporary learning and treatment environment possible for our patients, students, staff and faculty. Varying circumstances may warrant change in the dress code standard. Any request for exception or accommodation to the dress code standard should be submitted to the Department Chairperson. Lab Coats A white lab coat may be worn over street clothes when in clinical practicum settings. The short length is acceptable. Lab coats can be purchased at the CSCC Bookstore or any uniform shop, When working in a food production or service area, you are to follow the dress code of the operation, or wear the designated chefs uniform and carry a stem thermometer. Street Clothes This may be a dress, blouse/skirt, or shirt/pants with undergarments. Sweatshirts, T shirts, tank tops, sequined tops, shorts, denim jeans, and spandex pants/leggings are not considered proper street clothes. The cut of the blouse/shirt must not be so low as to distract others or call attention to the student. The blouse/shirt must be sufficiently long to cover the midriff area at all times. All street clothes are required to be in good taste. Socks Leg coverings must always be worn. Tights/Hose are to be worn with a dress or skirt; socks are to be worn with pants.
23 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 23 Shoes Shoes can be loafer or tie-style, close toed. No sandals, high heels or clunky platform heels should be worn. They should be comfortable, give good support and be clean and polished. Jewelry Keep visible jewelry to a minimum. Your Columbus State name badge, a fine chain necklace, a wedding ring, wrist watch, and small earrings (not larger than the size of a nickel and not dangling) are appropriate. Hair Hair must be clean and worn simply. Hair must be completely covered with a hairnet or surgical cap whenever in a food production or service area.

Travel/Parking -Requirements for and liability during travel to and from practicum sites: Students are responsible for his/her own transportation to supervised practice sites, and are liable for his/her own safety in travel to or from assigned areas. Student parking is available at most clinical sites at no cost. Students will be assigned to clinical sites that do not provide free parking; therefore students will be required to pay for parking (see itemized costs of program on page 17). At no time (including special meetings or classes) is a student permitted to use valet parking at any facility. Public transportation may be available to supervised practice sites, however students are responsible for securing other means of transportation if the supervised practice site is not accessible by public transportation. Communication- All communication and notices for Practicum and Dietetic Technician classes will be sent by instructors through CSCC student accounts. Students must keep abreast of communications.
25 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 25 Background Checks and Drug Screenings Most Health and Human Service academic programs necessitate that students complete a background check and/or drug screening as a requirement for admission. Such screenings are commonly required by agencies where students are required to perform clinical and/or internship experiences to meet graduation requirements. If your academic program requires these tests, it is acknowledged by the student that such tests are necessary to successfully matriculate toward degree completion. Further, in multiple instances an academic program/host facility may require such tests be completed on an annual basis, or immediately before clinical rotation. Students should be prepared to submit to such testing as required by partnership host agencies, licensing agencies, or program accreditation. Removal Due to Health or Safety Risk Partnering host agencies have an expectation that students completing a field experience, clinical experience, or internship should not be a health or safety risk to their clients. Students are therefore expected to conform to all standard health and safety practices required by the host agency. Any student that is deemed a health risk or unsafe in clinical practice regarding patient/client care will be removed from the experience and dropped from the program. This will be considered a clinical failure regardless of the existing grade status in the academic courses. Unsafe will be defined as a student that consistently fails to demonstrate competence in clinical patient/client care, not adhering to clinical polices, and/or behaving in any manner that compromises or threatens the well-being of the patient/client s health and welfare. Written evaluations from clinical instructors must specifically document student deficiencies. In addition, the host agency is under no obligation to allow or approve a student s experience if any health or safety issue is identified. Conforming to Host Agency Policies Students are expected to conform to all policies of the host agency when completing an internship, practicum, clinical or other type of experiential learning experience. Students should therefore expect to comply with these policies when they are on the premises of such agencies. It is also an expectation that students comply with policy expectations off premises if any conduct pertains to the host agency. Examples of such conduct could include but is not limited to work responsibilities that occur off premises, uniform and appearance expectations, social media usage, patient/client interaction, and any other activities related to the learning experience. Program Admission vs. Clinical Admission Distinction Host agencies often have their own requirements for individuals performing an internship, clinical rotation, practicum, or other experiential learning experience. These requirements may exceed the admission requirements of Columbus State and the specific academic program. It is expected that students have a thorough knowledge of the expectations of the host agency before beginning any experiential learning experience. Host agencies have the right to deny student participation even when the student is fully admitted into the academic program. Therefore, students should expect to meet the requirements of the host agency in addition to the academic program s requirements. For more information on this subject, consult the coordinator of your academic program.
26 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 26 Physical Contact There will be instances of physical contact through the normal instruction and practices of this degree program. The instructor may need to assist the student in demonstrating technique, proper form, or correct posture. Students may also practice techniques on one another during class sessions as part of the normal course instructional activities. Any such contact is handled in a professional manner consistent with the requirements of the profession. Inappropriate physical contact is prohibited by College Policy and will be subject to disciplinary action. If you have questions, concerns, or any level of discomfort regarding physical contact, please consult the Program Coordinator or see College Policy Course Criteria Changes Required courses in the handbook could be different based upon what is stated in the CSCC catalog. Please refer to the catalog for the most current information concerning required courses for your degree program.
27 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 27 Academic Expectations Success in the Dietetic Technician Program takes hard work and dedication of both the students and the instructional staff. Each of us has responsibilities that must be fulfilled and others are counting on us to perform them. The responsibilities of the student and the instructional staff are very similar. Preparation for Class Preparation for class is necessary if it is to be a learning experience for the students. Instructional Staff This requires that the staff: re-read the text. prepare by including any new/current information clarify any information unsure of. plan the session. Preparation for class is necessary if it is to Be a learning experience for you. You This requires that you: read assignments. write down any questions you have. clarify anything you are unsure of. summarize the assignment and think about objectives. In the Classroom show up for class. come to class on time do not leave early (remember, students are entitled to the full learning experience). use time wisely to fulfill objectives. answer questions to the best of ability. acknowledge when you do not know the answer to question; get answer by following class. encourage all students and give each an equal opportunity to participate in class. control classroom enthusiasm if necessary so all may participate. respect all views expressed. assume all students are prepared even if their hands are not raised. In the Classroom show up for class. come to class on time do not leave early (remember, you are entitled to the full learning experience). engage in class activities. ask questions about anything unclear to you it may clarify the topic for others as well. participate in class discussions and know that comments may lead to better understanding and insight. while participating, remember to allow and encourage others to participate. respect other students and instructors by listening and not carrying on conversations that will distract others. respect all views expressed.
28 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 28 Prior Learning Credit The Dietetic Technician program adheres to the college policy for prior learning assessment ( Students who wish to request nontraditional credit through prior learning assessment must complete the Request for Nontraditional Credit Form and meet with the chairpersons of the department offering the course for which nontraditional credit is requested for a preliminary interview. Dietetic Technician Curriculum For the full time student, the Dietetic Technician curriculum ideally begins in the Autumn term of the academic year, and continues for five consecutive academic terms (two academic years). There are no Practicum classes scheduled for the Summer term; however, if the curriculum is to be completed in two academic years, some courses must be taken during the Summer Semester. The curriculum is composed of four segments. The Ohio Department of Higher Education sets the standards as well as the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND). ODHE requires a total of 65 semester credit hours with a minimum number of general education and basic education courses. The remaining hours are to be in technical course work. ACEND requires that these include both classroom (didactic) and supervised practice. The supervised practice component must be made up of a minimum of 450 hours. These hours are covered in the practicum courses and selected laboratory courses on campus. Supervised Practice Experiences During the four practicum courses you will participate in a variety of settings. The course instructor will assign you to a site. Every consideration is taken to make this a compatible, convenient and educational experience as possible. This is an experience guided by the requirements of the course and is unpaid. Clinical affiliation agreements between supervised practice settings and the college are signed prior to student placement, and are updated as required per college policy. The Program Director evaluates the adequacy and appropriateness of supervised practice facilities through periodic visits, and through student and faculty feedback. Documentation of Supervised Practice Hours Students are required to document all supervised practice hours on a Time Record Form provided by the faculty instructor. Each time entry must be accompanied by the signature of the onsite preceptor. Students are required to keep track of required hours and work with the on-site preceptor to ensure that the minimum hours for the rotation are met. Submission of the Time Record, complete with preceptor signatures and mandated hours, is required for the successful completion of practicum courses. Educational Purpose of Supervised Practice Experience Practicum (supervised practice) courses are designed to give students the opportunity to apply the information learned in the classroom. The practicum activities focus on active participation as well as the completion of written reports. Supervised practice experiences are provided by healthcare and foodservice operations whose professional personnel volunteer to give supervision to students. Student experiences are meant to be hands on and the student should contribute useful work while in the operation, however the student should not be used on a regular basis to replace employees in the work place.
29 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 29 Student Retention, Remediation and Performance Monitoring Successful completion of Diet Tech courses and practicums is based upon assignment completion, assignment grades, attendance and written preceptor evaluations for practicum performance. Students who are having difficulty in the program are identified by the instructors. The appropriate student intervention is initiated by the instructor on an individual basis. Students that are not meeting program expectations are counseled by the program director and provided an opportunity to make improvements within a specific period of time. Students are made aware of appropriate student support services to help them improve in the identified areas. If a student continues to perform at an unsatisfactory level after the designated period of time, he/she may be asked to withdraw from the program and will be counseled into other career paths. This action would be approved by the department chair and division dean. The college uses the Early Alert system FOCUS powered by Starfish to both notify students and to provide early intervention for attendance and academic progress issues. Formal Assessment of Student Learning Students are assessed in the classroom utilizing a variety of tools, such as quizzes, reports, and written assignments. During the supervised practice experiences students are assessed utilizing preceptor evaluations and through written and oral assignments completed at the practicum sites. Assessment scores for classroom and supervised practice experiences are posted in each student s Blackboard gradebook. Students are provided a preceptor evaluation at minimum at the end of each rotation, and will receive a midterm preceptor evaluation if placed at the same site for the duration of the semester. On a college wide basis, students are notified of satisfactory or unsatisfactory performance through midterm grading notification. Student Illness or Injury while in a Practicum Setting At the beginning of each semester, the faculty instructor for the Practicum will have each student complete an information form, which includes Emergency Contact information. Should a student become ill or injured while in the practicum setting, the preceptor will call 911 if deemed necessary, or will notify the Emergency Contact if the student is unable to leave the facility independently. Security Issues Security in healthcare settings is a legitimate concern for both the clients/patients and employees. A Columbus State name tag will be provided for you. You are required to wear it at all times when you are in a practicum site. Some sites may also require you to wear identification furnished by the site. Withdrawal and Refund of Tuition and Fees The Dietetic Technician program adheres to the college policy regarding withdrawal and refund of tuition and fees (
30 Nutrition and Dietetics Program / 30 Discipline/Termination Procedures The Dietetic Technician program adheres to College Policy 7-10 regarding discipline and termination found on pages in the Student Handbook ( Any Dietetic Technician student that violates the Student Code of Conduct Policy will be subject to the penalties outlined in the policy up to expulsion from the college. Program Completion Requirements Students that are accepted into the Dietetic Technician program will receive academic counseling by the program director to ensure his/her understanding of program completion requirements. Students must complete the program within 108 weeks (150% of program length). Upon acceptance to the Dietetic Technician program the program director will create a class plan that enables the student to complete the program requirements within 108 weeks (150% of program length). Students that do not complete the program requirements within 108 weeks (150% of program length) may be required to repeat core nutrition and/or foodservice courses based on the recommendation of the program director and the approval of the department chair and the division dean. Achievement of Course Completion There are several methods by which you may receive credit for a course. These are by satisfactory completion at Columbus State, transfer credit, proficiency credit, prior learning and articulation agreements. Detailed information about each of these is included in the College Catalog. Satisfactory completion at Columbus State means receiving a passing grade. Grades are usually determined by several evaluation methods used throughout the term and a final examination. In the supervised practice courses, you will complete written assignments and projects as well as receive individual evaluations mid-term and at the conclusion. Transfer credit may be awarded for previous college course work for which a D grade has been earned. The course must also be comparable to the one offered at Columbus State, and must meet recency guidelines for the course. Proficiency credit may be earned by passing a comprehensive examination covering the information included in the course
