DCE is the designated unit within the Office of Academic Affairs to coordinate all UCF continuing education credit and non-credit programs. ♦ Continuing Education Purpose: 1. Provide leadership in identifying major community problems inherent in a rapidly expanding urban population area so that UCF resources can provide technical and intellectual assistance for solutions. 2. Provide a resource for local educational, professional, governmental, social, and grass- roots groups to assist them in becoming more effective instruments in solving major community, state, and national problems. 3. Provide a point of contact and catalyst for governmental, educational, social and other community groups desiring access to the skills and expertise available within UCF. 4. Provide activities to stimulate awareness of and responsiveness by academic units within the university to needs to which their professional talents could profitably be addressed. 5. Provide a means for program liaison between existing and potential statewide service efforts coordinated through the state university system and the Board of Governors.
  6. 6. 6. Provide accessibility to UCF programs and expertise for those individuals and groups typically not reached by regular university degree programs. ♦ Continuing Education Credit Programs. UCF approved credit courses offered via the following modes: 1. Off-campus at locations other than UCF regional campuses or institutional sites. 2. Courses offered through tuition plus fee including off-campus, distributed learning and on- campus. 3. Sponsored institutes in which a fee is assessed and collected from a sponsor in lieu of tuition. Enrollments from these programs are non-fundable. 4. Off-Book in which a fee is assessed and collected from individuals in lieu of tuition. Enrollments from these programs are non-fundable. ♦ Non-Credit Programs. A university sponsored educational program in which a fee is assessed and is not commensurate with university credit. These programs can be conducted on and off-campus and may provide certificates of completion, continuing education credits, industry certification/licensing, and/or license renewal. 1.1.5 Policy Statement: ♦ The UCF Continuing Education program is governed by the Florida Administrative Code, rules of the University, and the Board of Regents, as specified earlier in this document. It is the responsibility of DCE, Office of Academic Affairs, to administer all credit and non-credit continuing education offerings by centrally coordinating budgeting, registration and fee collections, auxiliary accounting, program planning, program development, and program implementation according to UCF and BOR policy. ♦ A Continuing Education credit course, as defined in this document shall be coordinated by DCE to assure compliance with University and Board of Regents policy. 1. All coordination with BOR staff regarding off-campus continuing education courses and the UCF service area shall be established through UCF procedures with pertinent documentation furnished to the Assistant Vice President- DCE or designate and forwarded to the Vice Provost-Academic Affairs or designee. 2. A schedule of off-campus courses initiated by UCF Colleges shall be formulated by DCE as the Division receives notification that said courses are approved by the appropriate college dean and academic department chair. 3. Requests made through DCE, initiated from individuals outside the University shall be referred by DCE to the appropriate academic chairperson and dean to ascertain whether or not the course will be offered and will refer to DCE for appropriate action. 4. Requested courses determined not to be offered by UCF shall be referred to the Assistant Vice President- DCE or designate to determine whether another state university can honor the request. 5. Monitoring of the continuing education credit program as pertaining to UCF and BOR policy shall be managed through DCE in coordination with the respective UCF academic units. ♦ All non-credit courses and special non-credit programs shall be centrally coordinated by DCE. These include non-credit conferences, institutes, short courses, symposia, workshops, certification or pre-licensing courses, etc., as governed by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. 1.

Additional fees may be charged on a cost recovery basis for special program services. 6. The Institute of Government and the College of Business Administration's Executive Development Center are authorized to collect, deposit and disburse auxiliary revenues for credit courses with tuition plus fee and noncredit programs separate from DCE by special exception of the Provost.

Such courses shall not in any way be in competition with, or replace, the regular on-campus program of Educational and General credit courses taken by degree seeking and special students. Accordingly, continuing education credit courses shall be scheduled and offered in such a way as to prevent any negative effect on any university’s achievement of its legislatively funded enrollment plan. Any fees charged students for continuing education credit activities, which are higher than the normal Board approved fees for similar credit activities offered in the regular on-campus program, shall be established solely for the purpose of recovering all increased costs which result from offering these courses as continuing education activities. ♦ Other Requirements Regarding Credit Activities. - Courses for credit offered through the Continuing Education Activity, away from the university campuses, or through sponsored credit institutes and programs shall be accorded the same status as their counterpart courses offered on the main approved campus.
  9. 9. Normally, only courses in the existing university approved curriculum shall be offered as continuing education credit courses. Modifications to this requirement shall be approved by the Chancellor, as prescribed by Chancellor’s Memorandum. The university offering such courses shall be responsible for ensuring that the faculty, support services, and physical facilities shall be of such quality to assure full comparability to the course offered to its regular on-campus counterpart. Courses for which degree credit is offered shall meet the same standards as other regular credit courses. ♦ Off-Campus Center - Each center in which off-campus credit courses are offered shall be organized and administered by the universities, as approved by the Board. All courses offered in a center shall carry resident credit. 2.2 Types of Credit courses/programs coordinated by DCE: 2.2.1 Credit component associated with non-credit: ♦ The noncredit activity is categorized into two basic formats. 1) College-initiated noncredit activity associated with optional credit course. a) Optional credit course may be selected from the active curriculum file or by obtaining approval for a special topics course. b) All participants pay noncredit fee; those opting for credit pay UCF course tuition in addition to the noncredit fee. UCF course tuition is paid through the UCF Cashier’s office according to standard operating procedures for the university. Non-credit fees are collected and deposited in an auxiliary project maintained by DCE according to their control procedures. c) FTE is fundable unless out-of-state tuition is waived. d) Instructor is paid any overload from noncredit participant fee. 2) Outside initiated noncredit activity associated with optional credit course. a) Optional credit course selected from active curriculum file courses. b) FTE is fundable. c) Instructor paid by outside organization. 2.2.2 Tuition plus fee: ♦ Regular UCF tuition rate is paid for the course. ♦ Other identifiable program costs such as instructor travel, materials, catering, etc. are charged to the enrollees and added to tuition expenses. 1) A DCE budget is required, as DCE accounting collects and disburses funds for tuition transfers, arranges payment of course expenditures, etc. 2.2.3 Sponsored Credit Institutes: ♦ An organization funds the institute fee for the enrollees. 1) If the participants are out-of-state residents, the out-of-state tuition waiver requires prior approval from the President or his designee. a) If the waiver is approved, the student credit hours are non-fundable. 2) Instructor is paid from the fees collected. 3) Participants receive UCF college credit for the course in which they enroll. 2.2.4 Dual-enrolled: ♦ A special program was implemented to allow high school students to take college level classes, the credit of which would apply to both the high school diploma and the college degree.
  10. 10. 1) Dual-enrolled courses are taught at the high school location. 2) Instructors are paid by academic departments. 3) Textbooks are paid by the applicable county public school office. 4) Tuition and fees are waived. 2.2.5 Special Topics: ♦ All special topics must be approved before they can be offered as a course. The following procedures have been designed to facilitate the process. Refer specific questions to the Instructional Facilities Scheduler in the Registrar’s Office at 823-5257. ♦ The first time a special topics course is offered, the Department must complete a Special Topics Request Form and obtain the necessary signatures. The request must be approved by the appropriate College committees and the University committees before it can be taught. This process must be completed before early registration begins for the term in which the course will be offered. ♦ A special topics approval allows a course to be taught two terms. A new approval is required for the 3rd, 5th, etc. term a course is offered. ♦ When a special topics course is approved as a permanent course by the Graduate Council or the Undergraduate Course Review Committee, it may be taught without additional approvals until a permanent number is assigned. ♦ The Department will write in the special topics course information on the greenbar edit during the Master/Schedule Build for the term the course will be offered. Include alpha prefix, course number, section number, the title and number of credit hours. The course title can be no more than 17 digits and must include ST: plus the title. If a course has been offered before, use the exact title of the previous offering. ♦ The college representatives will input the data into the Master Schedule during the Schedule Build. ♦ After the 2nd edit of the Schedule Build, the Instructional Facilities Scheduler will compile a term list of all special topics being offered. This will be cross-referenced with an accumulative list and the special topics book to determine which special topics need approval. A list will be sent to each college, Student Development and Enrollment Services, and Graduate Studies. ♦ The term list will be updated on a continuing basis as approvals are granted until two weeks before early registration. At that time, a second list will be distributed to the above organizations. ♦ Any special topics course not approved will be cancelled the day before early registration begins. ** NOTE: Both Undergraduate Studies and Graduate Studies have been authorized to give “tentative” approvals as they deem appropriate. 2.3 Fee Waivers 2.3.1 Out-of-State Tuition Waiver requests: FAC, Chapter 6C-7.008(6)
  11. 11. ♦ Out-of-State tuition requests for non-degree seeking students require Presidential or designee approval. The earned student credit hours, however, are non-fundable; and the direct cost for the program of study must be recovered from the fees charged to all students. 2.3.2 Waiver of Tuition and Materials & Supply Fees: FAC, Chapter 6C-7.008 ♦ Sponsored Institutes and Programs 1) Tuition and materials and supply fees may be waived by the president or president’s designee for participants in sponsored institutes and programs where substantially all the direct costs are paid by the external sponsoring agency, where there is no direct expenditure of Educational and General funds for the conduct of the programs, and where no fees or other assessments are collected from students by the sponsoring agency, the university, or any other entity. In determining whether the direct costs are paid by the sponsoring agency, funds paid directly to the participants in a form such as, but not limited to, stipends, travel or book allowances should not be taken into account. “Direct costs” refer to the costs associated with the instruction or training which a participant receives. All funds collected from sponsoring agencies for sponsored credit institutes will be remitted to the university’s contract and grants trust fund and/or auxiliary trust funds. 2) Neither the number of participants nor student credit hours in these institutes and programs may be counted for state-funding purposes. The waivers granted herein for non-resident fees are in addition to the non-resident waivers appropriated annually by the Legislature. ♦ Certain tuition shall be waived for the following: 1) children of law enforcement officers or firefighters killed while performing certain duties pursuant to Sections 112.19 and 112.191, Florida Statutes; 2) students who earn credit in courses toward both a high school diploma and an associate or baccalaureate degree pursuant to Section 236.081(1) (j), Florida Statutes; 3) students enrolled in a dual enrollment or early admission program pursuant to Sections 240.116 and 240.235 (4), Florida Statutes; 4) any student for whom the state is paying foster care board payment or any student adopted from the Department of Children and Family Services after December 31, 1997, pursuant to Sections 409.145(3) and 240.235(5), Florida Statutes; 5) any graduate student enrolled in a state-approved school psychology training program pursuant to Section 240.235(7), Florida Statutes; 6) certain members of the active Florida National Guard pursuant to Section 250.10(7), Florida Statutes; 7) a student enrolled through the Florida Linkage Institutes Program pursuant to Section 288.8175(6), Florida Statutes.

This certificate shall provide for waiver of the Residence Matriculation fee. ♦ Florida residents 60 years of age or older are entitled to a waiver of tuition as provided by Section 240.235(3), Florida Statutes. ♦ Non-resident students who are non-degree seeking are entitled to a waiver of the non-resident fee if the credit hours generated by such students are non-fundable and the cost for the program of study is recovered from the fees charged to all students. ♦ Each university shall waive the activity and service, health, athletic, and material and supply fees, assessed on a per credit hour basis, for credit hours for which the tuition is waived in accordance with the provisions of Rule 6C-7.008. Each university shall waive the activity and service, health, athletic, and material and supply fees assessed on a per student basis only if a student’s tuition is waived for all credit hours. If a student pays any portion of the assessed tuition, that student shall pay in full the activity and service, health, athletic, material and supply fees assessed on a per student basis. ♦ Each university shall waive all tuition and fee components of Rule 6C-7.001 and material and supply fees assessed for credit hours for which tuition is waived. Each university shall also waive the activity and service, health, athletic, and material and supply fees assessed on a per student basis only if a student’s tuition is waived for all credit hours. ♦ All or any part of the tuition and Material and Supply fees may be waived by the university when deemed appropriate provided that provisions for such waiver are included in Florida Statutes or the rules of the Board of Regents.

Satisfaction and
  17. 17. clearance of the hold is required before a release can be given. Students may check for holds on the POLARIS system at https://connect.ucf.edu. To obtain an immediate release for financial holds, payment to the Cashier's Office must be made either in cash, credit card, cashier's check, or money order. 2.6.3 Add/Drop: ♦ Add/Drop is the period following their initial registration when students may make class schedule adjustments (as listed in the "Academic Calendar"). Add/Drop may be done using the POLARIS system (https://connect.ucf.edu) and in the college advising offices. After the Add/Drop period, no course may be added. Courses meeting for the first time after the end of Add/Drop may be dropped the next business day in the Registrar's Office, MH 161. 2.6.4 Withdrawls: ♦ Withdrawal for each term begins after "Late Registration and Add/Drop" ends. Students may withdraw from a class and receive the notation of "W" until the date noted in the "Academic Calendar" online at http://www.ucf.edu/toplinks/academic_calendar.html. A student may withdraw from courses using POLARIS at https://connect.ucf.edu, or by visiting the Registrar's Office (MH 161), certain college advising offices, or a Regional Campus records office. Students may withdraw by fax at 407-823-5652. Faxed requests must be received by 5:00 p.m. on the last day to withdraw and must include the student's identification number, the course(s) to be dropped and his or her signature. Students also may send a written request to the Registrar's Office by mail (to P.O. Box 160114, Orlando, FL 32816-0114). This letter must be time-stamped or postmarked before the published withdrawal deadline and must include the student's identification number, the course(s) to be dropped and his or her signature. Students seeking to withdraw in person must sign the request and must provide photo-identification. The official date of withdrawal is the date the University receives the withdrawal request. Requests received by mail are processed using the postmark as the official date of withdrawal. Withdrawing from classes may have financial aid, NCAA eligibility or international Visa consequences. Students should seek appropriate advisement prior to withdrawing from a class. A student is not automatically withdrawn from a class for not attending, nor can an instructor withdraw a student from a class. Upon request the instructor will provide the student with an assessment of the student's performance in the course prior to the last day of withdrawal. No withdrawal is permitted after the deadline except in extraordinary circumstances such as serious medical problems. Unsatisfactory academic performance is not an acceptable reason for withdrawal after the deadline. Students seeking to petition for a late withdrawal should consult Academic Services (MH 210). At the time of the request, Academic Services will ascertain from the instructor whether the student was passing or failing the course. If the student was passing, a "WP" will be recorded on the student's permanent record; if failing, a "WF" will be entered. Medical and late withdrawals normally are for all courses taken in the semester. Students who seek late withdrawal because they are ill must apply for the withdrawal within six months of the term from which the withdrawal is sought. Students seeking a late withdrawal because of medical conditions must follow the medical withdrawal procedure. The student's physician provides the University with the appropriate medical information, using the forms available in the Office of Academic Services. A medical withdrawal must be for all classes in the term. If a medical withdrawal is approved, a "WM" will be recorded for each course. Students who receive a medical withdrawal may be placed on hold until the University can determine that the student is ready to return. If a medical withdrawal is not approved, the request may be approved as
  18. 18. a late withdrawal and grades of "WP" or "WF" will be recorded. A grade of "WF" will affect the calculation of the student's grade point average. Following the close of Late Registration and Add/Drop each term, students withdrawing from courses will incur both grade and fee liability. Students with circumstances determined by the University to be exceptional and beyond their control may apply for a cancellation of enrollment and an elimination of fee liability. Exceptional circumstances include, but are not limited to sickness, death, involuntary call to military service, or administrative errors created by the University. Students must submit a petition and all supporting documentation for a Late Drop of courses to Academic Services (MH 210; 407-823-2691) within six months of the end of the term for which the Late Drop is sought. If a student withdraws from a course while an alleged academically dishonest act is under consideration, and the case is not subsequently resolved in favor of the student, the University reserves the right to assign the appropriate grade for the course. ♦ Withdrawal and Academic Behavior Violations - Should an alleged violation of academic behavior standards arise before the withdrawal deadline in a term, the instructor shall notify the unit head who will notify the University Registrar that the student shall not be withdrawn from the course in question. Only a written release from the instructor of the authorized party deciding a student appeal will permit withdrawal. However, if the student appeals the academic action and desires to withdraw from the course, the process shall be initiated by the student immediately in the normal University manner. Such withdrawal requests will be held in abeyance until a ruling on an appeal is obtained. If resolved in favor of the student, the withdrawal request will be processed at the time. The individual empowered to rule on the student appeal shall appropriately notify both the University Registrar and the Director of the OSRR or designee of the outcome. For additional information regarding Academic Behavior Violations, see the current Golden Rule. 2.6.5 Incomplete Grade: ♦ A grade of “I” (Incomplete) may be assigned by the instructor when a student is unable to complete a course due to extenuating circum-stances, and when all requirements can be completed in a short time following the end of the term. The student is responsible to arrange with the instructor for the completion of the requirements of the course. Effective with incomplete grades assigned in the Fall semester 1997 and thereafter, a student cannot graduate from the University with an “I” on the transcript. The incomplete must be changed within one year of the last day of the semester attempted or prior to graduation from the University, whichever comes first. Unresolved incomplete grades automatically will be changed to “F” by the Registrar’s Office. Unresolved “I” grades in courses graded with “S” or “U” will be converted to “U.” 2.6.6 Grade Changes: ♦ A grade change is the change of any originally assigned grade to another grade, including grades of "I" and grades earned by administrative withdrawals. Grade changes other than medical withdrawals will be considered only during the semester immediately following the one in which the grade was assigned, except that grades assigned during the Spring semester may be changed during either the following Summer term or Fall semester. A change in grade must be approved by the dean of the college or school. A grade will not be changed after a degree has been conferred. The Registrar will change a student's academic status if necessitated by a change of grade, except in cases of academic suspension. If a student is suspended, the Admissions and Standards Committee may review the suspension and readmit the student if the Committee decides readmission is warranted. 2.6.7 Grade Forgiveness:
  19. 19. ♦ Grade Forgiveness offers a student the opportunity to retake a course and earn a higher grade that will be substituted for the previous lower grade and thus raise the GPA. “Grade Forgiveness Request Forms” are available in the Registrar’s Office (MH 161) or on the Registrar’s website, http://registrar.ucf.edu. Requests must be submitted no later than the last day of Late Registration and Add/Drop for the term/session in which the student has registered for the course being repeated. The following policies apply: 1. Grade Forgiveness is limited to two courses; 2. Grade Forgiveness may not be used twice for the same course; 3. Grade Forgiveness will only be awarded if the original and repeated courses both are taken at UCF; 4. All grades will remain on the student’s official transcript. The original course grade will be marked with a “T” to indicate that the course subsequently has been repeated, or a note describing the initial attempt, and the repeat course grade will be marked with an “R.” The original grade always will appear on the transcript but only the repeated course grade will be calculated into the GPA; 5. If it is determined that the student is ineligible for the Grade Forgiveness policy, neither a refund of fees nor automatic withdrawal from the course will be made; 6. If a student applies for Grade Forgiveness and later withdraws, or receives and “I” grade or “NC” grade in the course, the attempt will count as one of the allotted Grade Forgiveness attempts, and the GPA will calculate both grades. 7. UCF does not honor Grade Forgiveness granted at other institutions unless it is part of an Associate in Arts or a specific statewide articulated Associate in Science degree transferred from a Florida Public Community College or State University. UCF’s Grade Forgiveness policy may not be honored by other colleges, universities, professional schools, or national testing associations; 8. Due to the two-course limit, a student who has repeated two or more courses at a Florida Public Community College or State University and included those courses in the transfer of an AA or a specific statewide articulated AS degree will not be granted any Grade Forgiveness at UCF; 9. Grade Forgiveness awarded for repeated courses will not retroactively alter any previous academic action (i.e. academic probation or disqualification). In addition, no academic records can be altered after a student graduates; 10. Grade Forgiveness is not retroactive and, therefore, may not be used for a course repeated before Fall 1981. If a student who repeated a course at UCF before 1981 and did not use the previous forgiveness policy may repeat the course again. In this case, the lower of the previous two grades will be forgiven. This special circumstance is the only one in which a student will be allowed to repeat a course more than once; and, 11. With prior approval from the Dean’s office in which the course is offered, a student may substitute a course different from the original one if: 1) the substitute course reflects a change in prefix, number, hours, or title but not in substance; or 2) the substitute course replaces a course no longer offered by UCF.
  20. 20. ♦ Repeated Enrollment in Same Course: Beginning Fall 1997, a student enrolled in the same undergraduate college credit course more than twice shall pay matriculation at 100% of the full cost of instruction (Non-Florida Resident rates). 2.6.8 Name Changes: ♦ To change the legal name maintained on the student's official UCF record, the student must submit a completed "Change of Name" form and supporting documentation to the appropriate UCF office. Attach to the form a copy of a legal name change document (e.g., marriage certificate, divorce decree, etc.). Undergraduate students must submit the form to the Registrar's Office (MH 161). Graduate students must submit the form to the Graduate Studies Office (MH 230). Current UCF employees and those students who have been UCF employees within twelve months of the date the name change is requested must submit the form to the Human Resources Office (12565 Research Parkway). The "Change of Name" form is available from the Registrar's Office at MH 161 or online at http://registrar.ucf.edu. 2.6.9 Transcript Requests: ♦ Requests for official transcripts are made through the Registrar's Office (in person, by mail, or by fax). "Transcript Request Forms" are also available on the Registrar's Office website at http://registrar.ucf.edu. A student's academic record can be released only upon written authorization signed by the student. Telephone and e-mail requests are not accepted. Transcripts cannot be released if the student is on hold due to a financial obligation to the University. Transcript requests must include the student's signature, full name, identification number, and the name and complete address of the person(s) or organizations to whom transcripts are to be sent. If final grades or degree statement are needed, indicate that the transcript request is to be held until all requested data are posted. A $10 per transcript charge is assessed for each transcript request. Payment for official transcripts is required at the time of request and may be satisfied by cash, check or money order (made payable to UCF), credit card, or UCF Card. Requests received by mail must be accompanied by a check, money order, or credit card information (i.e., card type, card number, 3- digit Security Number, expiration date, and the name to which the card is registered.) Cash payments can be accepted only by the Cashier's Office during that office's regular business hours. The UCF Card payment option is available only at the main Orlando campus and must be made in person at the Registrar's Office (MH 161). Mail written requests for transcripts to: Registrar's Office, Attn: Transcripts, P. O. Box 160114, Orlando, FL 32816-0114. For fax request information and payment procedures, refer to http://registrar.ucf.edu/ or call 407-823-3100. Transcripts may be sent electronically to other Florida public institutions. Transcripts not claimed with 30 days of printing will be discarded and must be reordered. A$10.00 per reordered transcript fee must be submitted with the reorder request. Grades are available from POLARIS at https://connect.ucf.edu. 3.1 Account Opening /Closing 3.1.1 Budget Development: ♦ College representative and DCE coordinator will develop an opening budget (attachment B). Opening budget needs to identify: - Projected revenue (list each fee option) - Projected expenses (by general category)
  21. 21. - List instructional cost (differentiate Dual Comp. Faculty and OPS) with description of services. - Credit card fees - Services fee with list of services provided (attachment C) - Account number to secure revenue or loss - Form available on DCE support site: www.dcesupport.ucf.edu ♦ Once budget is developed, it must have the signed approval of the DCE business office (coordinator of admin services), college dean, department chair, DCE coordinator and DCE director. The DCE business office MUST be the first party to approve and sign off on the budget. 3.1.2 Opening Account: ♦ The opening budget needs to be submitted with to DCE business office two weeks prior to any expense or income on account and prior to online registration set-up. ♦ DCE will then request an account be opened and Finance and Accounting will assign a project number. ♦ DCE business office will then add the course to the active account list and will set up the course in Aceware, coordinating with IT support and enabling online registration if applicable. ♦ Course inputer will then send an email to all support staff and the program coordinator notifying them of the new account number and course code. 3.1.3 Accounting/Reporting Procedures: ♦ DCE will collect revenues and process payment of expenses. Copies of any expenditure or transaction must be forwarded directly to the DCE business office being sure to reference the department or project number affected. All copies of transactions are recorded in Aceware (pocket ledger) by the Coordinator of Admin Services and filed in the program file located in the DCE Business Office. ♦ DCE reconciles accounts with Peoplesoft system on at least a monthly basis. Detailed accounting reports are prepared and provided to colleges on their programs upon request. ♦ Additional reports are available upon request. (Enrollment and Income Report, Expense Ledgers, deadbeats) 3.1.4 Budget Revisions: ♦ Follow budget development procedures in section 3.1.1. Revised budgets need to be signed by college representatives, DCE coordinator, DCE Director and DCE Business Office and submitted to DCE business office personnel. ♦ DCE Business Office (Asst Director) forwards a copy of the revised budget to F&A for processing and updating in Peoplesoft. 3.1.5 Closing Accounts: ♦ A preliminary closing budget with actual figures filled in will be emailed to DCE coordinator by Business Office (Asst. Director) for review at the end of a program. Coordinator will review and notify DCE business office if there is any additional revenue or expense that needs to be processed.
  22. 22. ♦ A final closing budget will be sent to DCE coordinator. The coordinator will then meet with the college representative to review the program and obtain closing signatures (same signatures as in account opening). ♦ Signed closing budget is returned to the DCE Business Office. Copies are placed in the closed account binder and the program file. Closing is recorded on Closed Accounts spreadsheet and project is deleted from the active account list. ♦ DCE Business Office (Asst Director) prepares a closing memo that is sent to Finance and Accounting’s auxiliary department. ♦ DCE verifies in Peoplesoft that the correct funds have been transferred and records transfer in Aceware (pocket ledger). 3.1.6 Financial Reporting: Continuing Education strives to adhere to all UCF policies and procedures regarding financial transactions, records and reporting. Continuing Education financial records are recorded and reported from our database called Aceware. Financial transactions are recorded in the pocket ledger section of this database. Hard copies of transactions are then filed in paper files and stored in the CE Business Office, making sure that no credit card numbers or sensitive information is filed with the transaction. Aceware also serves as our student records database storing student names, contact info, registration information, payment records, grades, marketing codes and course history. Aceware works in concert with the following UCF Financial systems as a cross-checking mechanism: ♦ Bank of America V-Relay System Continuing Education uses the university V-Relay system to collect payments online for immediate and automatic processing. Payments may be via credit card or electronic check. CE programmers have developed an online registration system using Aceware to collect registration database information. Through this system, registrants input their personal information online and submit it to CE. They are then directed to the secure V-Relay site to make payment online. Payments made through V-Relay are coded to be sent to the UCF Finance & Accounting office with the correct auxiliary project and account codes and are deposited by F&A into CE’s auxiliary projects. ♦ Peoplesoft Continuing Education uses the university Peoplesoft system extensively. All financial records and accounts are verified and crosschecked by the Business Office with the Peoplesoft Financials system on a daily basis. Purchase orders, requisitions and TARS are also created and processed in this system. Student records, tuition payments, holds and grades are researched and verified with the Peoplesoft SA/HR system. CE payroll is also entered and approved in this system. ♦ F&A Datamart/DocView Detailed expense listings are printed from our Aceware database (pocket ledger) and are crosschecked with F&A Datamart. This system is particularly useful for viewing expenditures that are automatically deducted where the Business Office may not have received a hard copy receipt for posting. F&A Datamart also assigns every expenses listing with a voucher number. This number can then be searched in the DocView system and scanned documents pertaining to the expenditure can be viewed and printed out when documentation is otherwise unavailable.
  23. 23. Continuing Education generates the following financial statements to assess the financial health and stability of the division: (samples follow) ♦ Account Listings (active and closed)- Daily ♦ Deposit report (revenue collected)- Daily- sample omitted for privacy reasons ♦ Income/expense balances (pocket ledger)- Daily ♦ Program budgets- when ready for closing ♦ Deadbeats (collections due)- Monthly ♦ Cost Center Unit Report- Monthly ♦ Division Income Statement- Quarterly ♦ 3501 Budget Analysis- Yearly ♦ Annual Report Stats- Yearly ♦ Aggregate Division Income Statement w/ gross, net and operating rev-Yearly ♦ Other financial reports are also generated on an “as needed” basis. ♦ A quarterly financial report will be prepared by the Assistant Director and turned in to the DCE Director on Sept 30, Dec 31, Mar 31 and June 30 of each fiscal year. ♦ Quarterly Financial Report to include: 1. Gross/net revenue for quarter (detail accounts closed), compare to prior FY 2. Expenses per control account (detail in pocket ledger), compare to prior FY 3. Projected net revenues on all open accounts 4. Overhead charges assessed (separate from #2) 5. Interest payments to date 6. Gross/net revenue for each college control account (list programs closed) 7. List of any issues or concerns 8. Include a sheet with total aggregate figures for current FY ♦ All figures reported to the Director are first verified and matched with figures in Peoplesoft for accuracy. 3.2 Daily Deposits of Revenue 3.2.1 Acceptance of monies: ♦ Walk ins – Cash, checks, and credit card payments will be accepted by the DCE business office. A receipt will be issued from Aceware for cash and checks. An Aceware receipt will be issued for credit card payments when the charge has gone through (typically emailed to registrant with course confirmation). If student is in Aceware and already registered, all contact information is verified prior to acceptance of payment. If student is new, a completed registration form must be collected with payment. ♦ Checks by mail –DCE Assistant Director receives mail and opens all checks. Copies are made of each check and the back of each check is stamped with the UCF For Deposit only stamp. Payments are then entered into Aceware by the Coordinator of Admin Services and marked with the proper department or project number. An electronic receipt is sent to the registrant confirming payment. ♦ Online- These registrations are automatically input into Aceware by the registrant and payment is
  24. 24. automatically processed at the time of registration through the Bank of America Payment Gateway. Payments can be made via credit card or online check. Electronic receipt and confirmation of registration is sent automatically to the registrant. No manual input or processing is required by the Business Office on these transactions. All BoA settlement reports are matched with the revenue deposits into the auxiliary projects on a weekly basis. ♦ Credit card payments- DCE accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover. All charges are processed within 24-48 hours. If a card is declined, the registrant is emailed or called and notified of the problem. Once all charges have been processed, the detailed charge listing from BoA is verified with the Aceware deposit report. If charge amounts match and all payments for the day have been processed, the deposit reports are printed and closed out in Aceware. ♦ ID Transfers- ID transfers are to be done on a daily basis. Registrations are input by the Coordinator of Admin Services. IDTS are processed and recorded in Aceware and verified on the Project account by the Asst Director. 3.2.2 Daily Deposit Aceware Procedures: ♦ A deposit will be made on a daily basis and taken to the UCF Cashier. ♦ Print “The Deposit Report” from Aceware. (This report shows a check log as well as details of all other monies.) ♦ Print two copies of the transmittal form and verify that all amounts are correct. ♦ Assign the bank deposit number in Aceware. The format we use is MMDDYY. This is under reports, accounting, cash box reconciliation. Print out cash box reconciliation. ♦ Bank Bag: Transmittal report, one copy of BoA settlement report, and all cash and checks. Run a total for the checks on adding machine verify against check total on report. 1. The bank deposit receipt is to be verified, before leaving the cashier’s office, against our copy of the transmittal report. 2. The bank deposit receipt will be attached to our copy of transmittal form, “The Deposit Report”, copies of all checks, and report from BoA. This information will be kept in the daily deposit file. 3.2.3 Fee Collection Policy For Off-Campus Credit Programs: ♦ UCF policy, under the Office of the Inspector General, fee collection of off-campus credit programs must have a single point of responsibility. For Off-Campus Credit Programs, it is the Division of Continuing Education Accounting Office. In some cases tuition remittance may go directly to Student Accounts. Faculty members do not accept payment from students under this policy. ♦ Fees collected are immediately deposited in the UCF Cashier’s Office. All completed departmental and institutional forms are distributed to the appropriate university office after registration. ♦ Registration may be conducted online or received onsite. Refund Procedures, Tuition Waivers, Late Registration Fee Appeals and Late Payment Fee Appeals mirror the UCF policies outlined in the current undergraduate or graduate catalogs.
  25. 25. ♦ Students failing to pay tuition by deadlines for payment will be referred to the UCF Collections Office. The Division of Continuing Education will advise students of holds and referral to the UCF Collections Office. 3.3 Collections 3.3.1 Registration payment policy: ♦ Registrants will not be entered into Aceware as a confirmed registration until some form of payment is accompanying their registration. Exceptions are allowed in certain circumstances and will be decided upon by the coordinator for their specific program. If a coordinator makes an exception, it must be offered to all students in that program and must be in writing wherever payment/registration policies appear. ♦ Accepted forms of registration payments include: -Credit card (Visa, MC, Disc, Amex) - Purchase Order* -Check or money order -Signed deferred payment agreement -ID transfer (for internal UCF registrants) -Wire transfer -Sallie Mae loan approval -Other payment forms deemed appropriate (e.g. 1227 military forms, Letter of Credit, company vouchers) -Complimentary registration (approved by faculty or program coordinator) **In the case of purchase orders, invoices are immediately sent out upon receipt of the purchase order according to its instructions. 3.3.2 Confronting Collections Issues: ♦ Occasionally, some collections situations arise due to various reasons. An effort is made to confront these situations as soon as they occur, typically by the first night of class or the day of the event. ♦ Onsite registrations -Unpaid students flagged on sign-in roster (highlighted, circled, etc) -Materials or name badges for unpaids are pulled from the table until payment is made -Each DCE staff member is given list of unpaids, instructions for collections -Invoices are printed for unpaids so that they can follow up with their company if necessary -Follow up contact info is gathered from student if payment can not be made onsite ♦ No onsite registration -Roster is reviewed for any unpaid registrations -Second invoice is sent if payment is still not received (for instance, PO is still outstanding) -Class Instructor may be contacted in some cases to talk directly with unpaid student although instructors are not allowed to collect payments for DCE -Grades, materials etc. may be withheld until payment is received. 3.3.3 Collections Reporting:
  26. 26. ♦ Each month, a total deadbeat report for the whole division is printed out for any outstanding balances on classes with a starting date that falls within the last month (on 9/1/04, a report will be printed with the dates inputted being 8/1/04-9/1/04). ♦ All individuals on the list are reviewed on an individual basis, a second invoice marked past due is printed and mailed out to them (first invoice sent via email at time of registration). This action is noted on the report under that individual’s name. ♦ Prior month’s reports are also reviewed to check on individual now two months past due. ♦ Any correspondence with an individual or company is recorded on the monthly deadbeat report. ♦ Any individuals who have still not taken care of their balance due by the time the next month’s report is run will receive a third invoice marked final notice. After the third invoice is sent, attempts are made to contact the unpaid by phone and email as well. If no response is received, the individual is sent a letter informing them that they will be turned over to university collections if payment is not received in 10 business days. If payment is not received on the 10th day, we turn them over to the university. This is usually only necessary two or three times a year. 3.3.4A Exceptions- Airforce tuition reimbursement ♦ Not every program follows the standard collection procedures. Tuition reimbursement varies slightly. Separate procedures follow: ♦ In order for the US Airforce to process student’s paperwork and for UCF to invoice and collect in a timely manner the following steps have been required by the Education Office’s at the various airforce bases that we work with. 1. Student gets information on desired courses from UCF or UCF training partner. Information must include name of course, course number, contact hours and cost. Student’s name, SS# and student contact info are collected. If the course can be completed in 18 weeks or less, up front payment can be made. If not a breakdown by semester will be calculated and paid on a semester basis. 2. Student goes to Education office with the course info and obtains a form called AF form 1227. At this point, the student needs to have the required course info, including semester hours. 100% is covered for $250 or less per semester hour. Each student receives $4500 per year in tuition assistance and the fiscal year runs from Oct 1-Sept 30. 3. Student brings the original 1227 back to UCF training partner who faxes a copy to DCE Business Office for invoicing. 4. UCF uses 1227 to bill airforce directly on UCF letterhead.

The Program Sponsor is comprised of the departmental "agent" and the departmental senior administrator which would be a Dean or Director with college budget signature authority. 2. The responsibilities of the Program Sponsor are defined in the "DCE Service Agreement" and are signed by the department agent and the department senior administrator. This defines the physical responsibilities of both DCE and Program Sponsor. NOTE: The Division of Continuing Education wants the Program Sponsor role as defined in the DCE Service Fee, to be read and agreed to by the program senior administrator. 3. The financial responsibility of new program remains with the program department, therefore upon signing of the budget, pre-conference/seminar/workshop expenses remain the sole fiscal responsibility of the program department. NOTE: This is typically comprised of printing, postage, and mailing lists of prospective attendees. Honorariums for presenters are the sole responsibility of the program department. Terms of payment should include a statement that does hold the department responsible for honorariums of canceled programs. 4. The Program Department is the fiscal agent for the expenditure of all program revenues. State laws and University System policies require the expenditure of revenues must be for the further development of like programs or student scholarships that would support UCF students engaged in a field related to the program's outcomes.
