Security Policy Your payment and personal information is always safe. Our Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software is the industry standard and among the best software available today for secure commerce transactions. It encrypts all of your personal information, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read over the internet.”
Extended Credit / Make‐Up Time
Students may obtain additional training beyond their scheduled training hours only during times that the institution is open for business and providing training in the program in which a student is enrolled. This policy accommodates students who may be working on a lab or clinic application that extends beyond their scheduled hours of attendance, and for students who may need to make up time as a result of prior absences by the student, and/or poor grades. Licensed instructors are on campus and are providing training and supervision of theory and/or, lab or clinic services between the hours of 8:30am and 3:00pm. Students may only obtain additional training during these hours. No credit will be given for any time that a student is clocked in if supervised training is not being provided. Additional training time may be granted for theory and/or practical work only, i.e., performing clinic services, lab applications and procedures, or sanitation training. Additional training time will only be permitted if space is available and may not displace another student who is in attendance during his/her scheduled time of attendance. The acting instructor/supervisor on site has the authority to restrict additional training time at his/her discretion. There may be an additional fee (hourly or day approved rate) charged to the student who uses extended credit/make-up time that will be required to be paid in full prior to the extended credit/make-up time.
TRANSFER OF CREDIT POLICY AND ARTICULATION AGREEMENTS
- If a student will be attempting to transfer credit from one institution to another they must submit an official transcript from the prior institution to the current institution identifying all courses from which the student is requesting a transfer of credit.
- The Assistant Principal of Adult Education will review the transcript and collaborate with other stakeholders if needed, to determine if the prior credit will be applied to any programs at the new institution.
- Based on the review of the transcript a determination will be made whether the prior credit can be accepted or not.
