ATLANTA TECHNICAL COLLEGE PHILOSOPHY The strength of Atlanta rests in its citizens whose skills, values, and ethics make them a productive and competitive force. The men and women of Atlanta should be productive workers if the city and its environs are to attract new business and industry and strengthen existing companies that have enabled Atlanta to become the commercial hub of the entire Southeast. Atlanta Technical College does not discriminate on the basis of age, race, color, national origin, sex, religion, marital status, or disability. Individuals should be provided programs and services that will enable them to develop and improve their academic skills, technical competence, and work attitudes. These attributes are necessary for job acquisition, retention, and advancement in a career that is personally satisfying, socially useful, and economically beneficial. Technical College believes that opportunities in technical education must include general and technical literacy, academic skills and knowledge, technical skills, and the attitudes needed to enjoy life. To obtain employment, individuals must be competitive in today's job market, and they must possess the skills that will earn them promotions throughout their careers. Atlanta Technical College believes that the positive results of a literate and technical competent citizenry will accelerate Atlanta's continued appeal to existing, expanding, new, and emerging businesses and industries and will in turn contribute to the economic and social growth of individuals living and working in and around Atlanta.

Atlanta Technical College honors tradition yet seeks to expand it, moving forward into the future informed by traditional values that transcend time, college size, business and industry trends, management changes, or external factors. The core values are the guiding principles that direct work toward fulfilling the college mission. These values are at work across the campus and in all aspects and offices of the campus community.  Service  Academic Excellence  Respect and Integrity  Empowerment and Accountability  Creativity  Diversity  Community Atlanta Technical College’s core values complement the Technical College System of Georgia belief system.

ABOUT ATLANTA TECHNICAL COLLEGE Atlanta Technical College is a postsecondary college under the governance of the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG). As one of 25 technical colleges in the state, Atlanta Technical College adheres to the policies and requirements set forth by the TCSG. Atlanta Technical College prepares students for the world of work.

The Community The location of Atlanta Technical College, in the southwestern corner of the city of Atlanta, places the college on an excellent site to provide maximum involvement in the city's exciting and progressive business, industrial, cultural, and educational communities. Atlanta is the corporate headquarters for many well-known companies such as AGL, AT&T Mobility LLC, CNN, Coca-Cola, the Southern Company, Delta Air Lines, and Turner Broadcasting Company. Host of the 1996 Centennial Olympic Games, Atlanta is home to the Atlanta Braves baseball team, the Atlanta Hawks and Atlanta Dream basketball teams, and the Atlanta Falcons football team.

Facilities The largest single-site campus in the Technical College System of Georgia, Atlanta Technical College occupies a 46-acre campus on Metropolitan Parkway. Quality technical education requires laboratory facilities comparable to workplaces in business and industry. An annual budget of more than $24 million keeps the educational environment current with state-of-the-art technology. Budget expenditures have been generously supplemented with donations of equipment and technical advice from corporations committed to technical education. These business partnerships foster a new level of cooperation to enhance technical education.

History Tracing its origin through six decades, Atlanta Technical College has grown from fairly modest beginnings. Atlanta Technical College was established as Smith-Hughes Vocational School at 232 Pryor Street, and first enrolled adults in vocational education in 1945 following World War II. The school was moved in 1964 to Smith High School at 535 Hill Street and renamed Hoke Smith Technical Institute. At that time, about 24 occupational programs were offered. Federal funding for vocational education in the late 1960s promoted the concept of area vocational technical schools. In 1953, the Northside extension campus, Tuxedo Center, was opened at 4191 Northside Drive in northwest Atlanta. In 1967, the school was reorganized as Atlanta Area Technical School and was moved to its current southwest campus, enrolling its first students in the new facilities in January 1968. The Child Care Center and Ferguson Hall Annex were completed the same year. In 1997, the school's name was changed to Atlanta Technical Institute, and the institution became part of the Georgia Department of Technical and Adult Education. Dr. Brenda Watts Jones was tapped to become president, making her the first African-American woman in Georgia to lead a technical institution. She served the college until 2007, and Dr. Alvetta Peterman Thomas was named president in 2008. In June 1999, Atlanta Technical Institute completed a $1.3 million renovation of its south entrance facade. The renovation provided covered walks and outdoor seating plazas. On July 1, 2000, the name was changed to Atlanta Technical College. In 2007, the college acquired use of the property at 1520 Metropolitan Parkway, adjacent to main campus, through the Atlanta Technical College Foundation, Inc. The facility at that location currently houses the Atlanta Technical College Institute for Males. The $14 million Brenda Watts Jones Allied Health and Technology Complex opened in the fall of 2010. In August 2012, the college completed a $4.8 million renovation of a new 36,000 square foot state-of-the-art library, testing center, and facility department hub. Accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and with an average semester enrollment of 4,800 students, Atlanta Tech offers associate degrees, diploma programs, technical certificates of credit, and continuing education short-term courses. In addition to day and evening class schedules, hybrid schedules and online courses are also offered. Additionally, Atlanta Technical College, through its Economic Development Division, develops customized courses for business and industry. Atlanta Technical College has produced seven state GOAL (Georgia Occupational Award of Leadership) winners and four state PRIDE (Performance Recognition Indicating Demonstrated Excellence) winners. GOAL is the highest award given to outstanding technical students in Georgia. In addition to having an excellent track record in producing winners in state competitions, Atlanta Technical College is proud of the students who also excel in regional and national competitions representing student associations and organizations. In 2007, Washington Monthly magazine named Atlanta Technical College “America’s Best Community College” and the college was recognized by the Technical College System of Georgia with the Perdue Award for Technical College of the Year in 2012. Atlanta Technical College provides an exceptional education to a diverse group of students, representing ethnic groups from around the world, younger and older people, high school and college graduates, persons with special needs, and persons with varied backgrounds, academic requirements, and interests. Women are enrolled in nontraditional programs such as automotive technology, aviation maintenance technology, carpentry, and welding and joining technology.

Transfer of Credit Atlanta Technical College encourages applicants who qualify to apply for advanced placement in their programs of study to submit previous postsecondary coursework from regionally accredited institutions. All students who wish to transfer credit(s) from another institution must complete a Transfer of Credit Form one month prior to the start of the term.

No more than 50% of the total required hours in a certificate, diploma, or degree program will be approved for transfer credit.  The course number for a transfer course must be equal to or greater than the course number of the Atlanta Tech credited course. The Registrar will make the final decision regarding awarding transfer of credit, based on state standards and/or course learning outcomes. Grade points will not be assigned.

In instances, where course equivalency is questionable, the Registrar makes the final decision in consultation with the instructional department chair.

Credit by Articulation Courses can be articulated for classes taken while in high school, that were taught by the high school instructor. Students have to take the appropriate course (s), meet the eligibility requirements and pass the course examination.

Course fees will not exceed 25 percent of the tuition for the course. If a student previously attempted, audited, failed, or withdrew from a course after the drop/add period at Atlanta Tech, the student cannot receive credit for that course by exemption examination. The student will be allowed only one exemption per course. A prerequisite course requirement must be satisfied. If a student exempts a course, credit is given, but no grade points are calculated for that course. Exemption credit earned is considered toward the total hours earned, but does not count toward carried hours for the quarter. Course exemption may affect the full -time status of a student. A student may exempt no more than 50 percent of the program course work to be eligible for an Atlanta Tech degree, diploma, or technical certificate of credit.

Financial Aid and Fees

FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS ADMINISTERED BY THE COLLEGE FEDERAL AND STATE FINANCIAL AID PROGRAMS Atlanta Technical College is pleased to participate in the administration of federal and state Student Financial Aid (SFA) programs. SFA programs are designed to assist students in meeting the educational costs required to complete their chosen program of study. The Financial Aid Office is also the liaison for numerous scholarship programs sponsored by the College foundation, civic, religious, and corporate agencies. To further assist students with the application process, financial aid counseling is available and workshops are conducted throughout each academic year. The following financial aid information will provide you with an overview of the programs available, the eligibility criteria, and the application process. Additional information and/or clarification of the SFA programs may be obtained from the Financial Aid Office. Please note that the information contained herein is subject to change pursuant to federal, state or institutional policy updates.

Federal PELL Grant Program (PELL) The PELL Grant Program provides federal assistance to students who demonstrate financial need as defined by the U. S. Department of Education. PELL recipients must be enrolled in an eligible undergraduate program of study and must not have attained a baccalaureate degree or a first professional degree. Normally, all associate degree and diploma programs are Pell eligible. However, many of the Technical Certificate of Credit (TCC) programs do not meet the qualifications for Pell. A current listing of the Pell Eligible TCCs can be found at http://www.atlantatech.edu/pdfs/PellEligibleTCCs.pdf. Award amounts vary based on individual need as determined by federal methodology and credit hours each semester.

Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) This federal program is designed to ‘supplement’ the grant assistance awarded to the neediest PELL Grant recipients. Funding for FSEOG is limited and based on the amount of funds allocated to the College each year. Thus funds are not available for all students who meet the eligibility criteria for this award. Since funds at Atlanta Tech are limited, students who meet the priority deadline date for applying for federal aid have the greatest chance of receiving FSEOG assistance.

Federal Work Study (FWS) Program Federally funded, this program encourages part-time employment and participation in community service activities such as the America Reads initiative. Normally employed in departments on campus, FWS students must maintain a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or greater. FWS offers student employees opportunity for financial assistance, exposure to real work experiences, development of positive work ethics and time management skills.

Helping Outstanding Pupils Educationally (HOPE) Scholarship Program There are currently two components of the HOPE Scholarship Program available to Atlanta Tech students. The HOPE Grant component is available to students enrolled in a certificate or diploma program of study. Beginning with the fall term of 2004, all hours for which a student received HOPE Grant payment, retroactive to summer semester 2003, are counted as Paid-Hours. Recipients are eligible for a maximum of 63 semester hours of HOPE Grant payment. Effective fall semester 2013, HOPE Grant recipients must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or greater at the required check points (30 and 60 semester hours) to continue receiving funding. The HOPE Scholarship component is awarded to HOPE Scholars enrolled in an associate degree (AAT or AAS) program of study. HOPE Scholars are students who graduate from a Georgia high school with this distinguished honor or students who are ‘grandfathered’ into the program after attempting a minimum of 30 associate or baccalaureate degree semester hours with a 3.0 or greater cumulative GPA at the required checkpoints. HOPE Scholarship applicants must complete an ATC HOPE Scholarship Application. The attempted hours limit is 127 semester hours. HOPE Scholarship recipients must have graduated from high school within the past seven years or received HOPE scholarship funding prior to summer semester 2011. Students become ineligible for HOPE scholarship seven years after the date they graduated high school or equivalent. Students who received a HOPE scholarship payment during the 2010-2011 award year will remain eligible through June 20, 2015, regardless of graduation date. Active duty military service time does not count against the seven-year period. Students can only regain the HOPE scholarship one time. Combined HOPE Grant and Scholarship Limit: In addition to the HOPE Grant paid hours limit and the attempted HOPE Scholarship paid hours limit, there is a combined limit of 127 semester hours. If the student reaches the combined limit prior to reaching the Grant or Scholarship paid hours limit, said student will no longer qualify for Grant or Scholarship assistance. Effective fall 2013, the HOPE Grant and Scholarship award amount is equivalent to 73.61176% of the cost of tuition each semester that the student is eligible to receive funding. This maximum award amount is subject to change pursuant to guidelines issued by the Georgia Student Finance Commission (GSFC). Zell Miller Scholarship covers 100% of tuition for students who are the Valedictorian or Salutatorian for their graduating class or received a score of at least 1,200 combined critical reading score and math score on a single administration of the SAT or an ACT composite scale score of at least 26 and graduated from high school with at least a 3.7 calculated GPA. Students must be enrolled in a degree program, and must have a 3.3 GPA at all checkpoints (30, 60 and 90 semester hours), at the end of spring and at the end of 3 term checkpoint for part time, beginning students. Students who lose eligibility may possibly regain the scholarship once. Students who lose eligibility for the Zell Miller Scholarship may continue to receive the HOPE scholarship if they are eligible. Degree classes taken at any post-secondary institution are counted in the GPA calculation.

Georgia HERO Scholarship The Georgia HERO (Helping Educate Reservists and their Offspring) Scholarship Program was created to provide financial aid to students seeking a postsecondary education, who are current members of the Georgia National Guard and United States Military Reserves (or their children) who were deployed overseas on active service, on or after February 1, 2003, to a location designated as a combat zone; It is also available for spouses if the guard or reservist was killed in the combat zone, or died as a result of injuries received in the combat zone, or sustained 100 percent disability in the combat zone, or became 100 percent disabled as a result of injuries received in the combat zone. The maximum amount awarded to an eligible student is $2,000 per award year, for no more than four award years.

Satisfactory Academic Progress Students who receive Title IV Federal financial aid funds and/or the Georgia HOPE Grant funds must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP). SAP is comprised of the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) and the completion rate. Students must maintain a GPA of 2.0 or greater and must complete their program of study within 150% of the time normally required. The GPA is computed by the Registrar’s Office and is computed on a scale of 4.0 (A=4, B=3, C=2, D=1, F=0). Grades that adversely affect a student’s GPA are D, F, and Withdrew Failing (WF). The grades of Incomplete (IP), Withdrawal (W), Withdrew Passing (WP), Satisfactory (S), and Unsatisfactory (U) have no impact on the student’s GPA. A satisfactory completion rate is used to measure whether or not the student will complete his/her program of study within 150% of the time normally required. The student must complete at least 67% of all attempted classes. The letter grades that indicate unsatisfactory completion are D, F, W, WF, WP, IP, and U. Federal regulations require all institution to check SAP at least once per academic year. At Atlanta Tech, if the student drops below the minimum requirements in either component, the student will be given aid for one semester on warning. If at the end of the warning semester, the student is still below the minimum requirements, his/her financial aid will be suspended until such time as he/she regains eligibility without the assistance of federal or state financial aid.

Exception If the student feels that there are extenuating circumstances regarding his/her ability to maintain progress, he/she may submit a written letter of appeal with appropriate documentation for consideration. SAP Appeals are reviewed and evaluated by the Financial Aid Counselors, but will not be reviewed without appropriate documentation. Said student will receive a response within two weeks from the date the appeal was received in the Financial Aid Office. Pursuant to federal regulations, if an appeal is approved and it is anticipated that the student can regain eligibility after one semester, he/she will be granted one semester of aid on probation. If the appeal is approved and it is determined that the student cannot regain eligibility after one term, the student’s appeal will be approved on a semester by semester basis. Semester by semester approvals will require the student to complete and pass all attempted hours on probation in order to receive aid on probation in subsequent semesters. Should the student not complete and pass all attempted hours prior to regaining eligibility, the student’s financial aid will be suspended.

Maintaining Financial Assistance Financial aid recipients must reapply for financial aid each academic year. Students who fail to renew their applications will be required to pay their educational costs until such time as their continued eligibility has been established. In some cases, the student will receive retroactive payment.

38

Recipients must notify the aid office in writing if their financial circumstances change (change or loss of employment, change in dependents, etc.).

The Verification Process The Department of Education selects applicants (students who complete the FAFSA) for a review process called verification. If your federal application is selected for review, you must complete a Verification Worksheet for the academic year and document specific items which may include those shown below. Students applying for assistance for the 2013-2014 academic year are required to provide documentation for the 2012 base year and sometimes the current year (2013). The items to be verified include:  Household size  Number in college  Adjusted gross income  U.S. taxes paid  Certain types of untaxed income and benefits: SNAP, social security benefits, child support, IRA/Keogh deductions, foreign income exclusion, earned income credit, interest on tax-free bonds  All other untaxed income included on the U.S. income tax return, excluding information on the schedules Students may contact the Internal Revenue Service at 1-800-829-1040 to request transcripts and/or Non-Filing Status Letters.

SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCES Students (and or the parents of dependent students) who experience changes (loss of employment, change in dependents, etc.) in their financial circumstances, should notify their Financial Aid Office in writing. Documentation is often required, but this could result in an increase in funding. It is highly recommended that students who are considering changing their majors, withdrawing from class, etc., check with a financial aid counselor to determine if and how this change will affect their financial aid.

Financial Aid Counselors It is highly recommended that students who are considering changing their majors, withdrawing from class, etc., check with a financial aid counselor to determine if and how this change will affect their financial aid. Counselors are assigned based on the student’s last name. Students whose last name begins with A-J should call 404-225-4720, and students whose last name is K-Z should call 404-225-4717.

Communicating with Students At ATC, we have found that the most effective means of communicating with students is via email. Students may provide their email address on their FAFSA or other documentation submitted to the Financial Aid Office. As a courtesy, students are also given an ATC student email address. It is the student’s responsibility to insure that accurate contact information is on file in the Student Affairs Department.

Missing Document Letters Upon receiving financial aid applications, an evaluation of the student’s data is made. If additional documentation is required, the student is sent a Missing Document Letter via email indicating the documentation needed to complete the student’s financial aid file.

Award Letters After a final determination has been made regarding a student’s eligibility for aid, the student is sent an Award Letter via email. The award letter will show the type and amount of aid that the student has been awarded. Awards are normally based on full-time attendance and will be prorated for each term that the student is not enrolled on a full time basis. Full Time = 12 or more credit hours, ¾ Time = 9 – 11.5 credit hours, ½ Time = 6 – 8.5 credit hours, and Less than ½ Time = less than 6 credit hours.

Refunds Students whose financial aid awards exceed the direct cost of tuition and fees will receive a refund. Refunds are processed by the ATC Business Office each term. For additional information regarding refunds, students should contact the Business Office.

Federal R2T4 Policy The federal government requires colleges to monitor the enrollment activity of each federal financial aid recipients. A return to title IV funds process (R2T4) must be performed on students who totally withdraw from class prior to the end of the term. This process identifies the percentage of funding that the student earned, which often results in a reduction in the student’s award for said term. Students who totally withdraw prior to the 60% point in the term are normally required to repay federal funds received.

39

State Refund Policy The Technical College System of Georgia defines the state refund policy that must be followed by ATC. Should the student alter his/her enrollment status during the first three days of the term, the students tuition and fee charges are revised accordingly. Should changes occur after the first three days of the term, there will be no reduction (refund) of tuition and fee charges.

Repayment Requirements Occasionally, a student may receive federal or state funding in error. This may occur due to technical difficulties, human error, incorrect data provided by the student, etc. Please note that federal and state funds received in error, regardless of the reason, must be repaid by the student.

Additional Sources of Financial Assistance VETERANS AND ELIGIBLE DEPENDENTS EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS Former service personnel, their survivors, and dependents may be eligible for Veterans Affairs Educational Benefits. Atlanta Tech is pleased to offer programs that are approved for veterans and their eligible dependents. To determine your eligibility, please contact the Atlanta Tech Veterans Affairs Office for assistance. Apply: If this is your initial claim, complete an Application for Benefits (VA Form 22-1990). This can be completed on line at www.gibill.va.gov or paper applications can be obtained from the Atlanta Technical College (ATC) Veteran's Affairs Office. The Veteran's Affairs Regional Office will process your application and send you a Certification of Eligibility if you qualify. Upon receiving a Certification of Eligibility, you should submit a copy of it, your DD214, and your class schedule to the ATC VA Office. If you have previously filed for VA Educational Benefits and have received a Certification of Eligibility (CE) from the VA, or if a CE is pending, you should just submit a copy of it, along with your DD214 and class schedule to the ATC VA Office. Certify: Once you have submitted the documentation described above, the VA Rep will validate your enrollment and send a certification to the appropriate VA Regional Office. This is called the Enrollment Certification Process. Since you cannot be paid for your benefits until the VA rep certifies your enrollment, and he or she cannot certify your enrollment until he has your class schedule, you must remember to submit a copy of your class schedule at the beginning of each semester.

Enrollment Status Changes and Withdrawals: It is the student’s responsibility to notify the ATC VA Rep of any changes in enrollment status, program of study, place of training, etc. These type changes affect your eligibility and must be reported to the VA Regional Office. If you withdraw from school or drop/add classes, we recommend that you notify the VA Representative within three days of that change. Failure to do this can result in the loss of future benefits and/or repayment of benefits received in error. Please remember to report any enrollment changes promptly.

Change of Program or Place of Training: If you have been approved for VA educational benefits and then decide to transfer to another school and/or change programs or majors, you must complete a Request for Change of Program or Change of Place of Training (VA Form 22-1995 or VA Form 225495 depending on your program). You can get the forms from a VA Rep or download it from the VA web site: www.gibill.va.gov.

Address Changes: 40

Address changes and changes of Banks should also be reported to the Department of Veteran Affairs. Since VA WILL NOT forward your benefits checks to a new address, it is important that these type changes be reported immediately. If you close a bank account without first informing the VA, they will send your benefit payment to the old bank account. If the bank refuses the payment and sends the check back, it goes to the U.S. Department of Treasury and takes about two weeks to get reposted. You can change your payment information on the verification form or via telephone at the Department of Veteran Affairs phone number: 1-888-442-4551 (1-888-GI-BILL1).

Time Frame/Payment of Benefits: The time period for an ORIGINAL CLAIM IS ROUGHLY 120 TO 150 DAYS TO PROCESS. The time period for Previous Claimed Certification Claims is 30 TO 90 days. Since we do not have advanced pay, the way to effectively work this system is to give it plenty of time. Plan ahead, apply for both VA and Federal Financial Aid assistance, and fill out all the required forms completely and accurately to avoid the errors that will cost you time. Educational Rates: To view the VA educational rates, please visit www.gibill.va.gov/education/rates.htm.

Satisfactory Academic Progress: All recipients are required to maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) according to standards established and published by the College. This includes a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or greater as well as a 67% or greater completion rate. If you fail to maintain the minimum requirements as stipulated in the SAP policy, your benefits will be terminated. If you have any questions, please call the Atlanta Technical College VA Representative at 404-225-4718.

All forms related to registration and change of registration must be initiated by the student, approved by the program advisor, and processed by the registrar's office before the end of the drop/add period. Students who add or remove classes from their schedule during the drop/add period will do so without academic penalty.

Withdrawal Procedures Students who withdraw from school must complete withdrawal forms and submit them to the Admissions Office. Those who fail to withdraw officially from the school may be regarded as having been dropped from the program for lack of attendance. Withdrawal forms are available in the Admissions Office. The effective date of withdrawal is the date the student notifies the college of withdrawal or the date specified by the student, whichever is later. Students withdrawing after the 3 rd instructional day of the term will not receive a refund of applicable tuition and tees.

Academic Policies

ACADEMIC POLICIES Good Standing Students who achieve a semester GPA of 2.00 are considered to be in good standing.

Academic Warning Students who fail to achieve a semester GPA of 2.00 are placed on academic warning. The purpose of an academic warning is to alert the student there is a need to improve academic performance.

Academic Probation Students who fail for the second consecutive quarter to achieve a semester GPA of 2.00 are placed on academic probation. Students are required to consult with program advisors to plan for improvement.

Academic Suspension Students who fail for the third consecutive semester to achieve a semester GPA of 2.00 are placed on academic suspension. A student placed on academic suspension must stay out of school for one full semester before applying for readmission.

Readmission A student placed on academic suspension, for the first time, is eligible to apply for readmission after serving a one- semester suspension. Upon return, if the semester GPA falls below 2.00, the student will be suspended for one full calendar year. Subsequent to the one-year suspension, if the semester GPA falls below 2.00, the student must appeal in writing to the Vice President of Academic Affairs.

Attendance & Withdrawal Policy Because employers demand workers who are competent and reliable, regular attendance and punctuality are critical traits in the workplace. Students are expected to attend all classes as scheduled. Specific attendance requirements are established by each program and outlined in the course syllabus; however, programs governed by state and federal licensing agencies may have more specific attendance policies. Records of absences and tardiness are maintained by each instructor. Excessive absenteeism and tardiness impact work ethics evaluations and course grades. Therefore, it may become necessary to withdraw from a course due to excessive absenteeism or tardiness. Formal withdrawal from the College or specific courses is the sole responsibility of the student. This can be done via Banner Web or by completing an official withdrawal form in the Office of the Registrar, located within the Student Affairs Division on the first floor

45

of the Dennard Building. Failure to comply with the official withdrawal process may result in a failing grade for the course; unofficial withdrawal from the course by the instructor for lack of attendance could jeopardize current and future financial aid eligibility. Students who stop attending a class or miss 20 percent of class time or more will be unofficially withdrawn from the course. The student will receive a grade of "W" should this occur prior to midterm, and a grade of "WP" (withdrawal passing) or "WF" (withdrawal failing) should this occur after the midterm. The grade will be determined based on the student's academic performance up to the time the student ceases to be enrolled. The last date of attendance will be recorded as the last day that the student attended class or participated in an academically related activity.

Make-Up Work Students are responsible for arranging make-up work with their instructors in accordance with procedures set forth in the Course syllabus.

Assignments Missed During Disciplinary Suspension When students are suspended for disciplinary reasons, they will have an opportunity to make up the assignments missed. Students are responsible for requesting the materials and information needed to complete these assignments.

Absence Due to Military Reserve or National Guard Duty Students who must be absent for military reserve or National Guard duty should inform their instructors and the Financial Aid Office, if appropriate. Such students must provide a copy of their orders, signed by the appropriate military authority. Instructors will assign a grade of "I" for any course(s) not completed due to military duty.

Course Load Students may register for no more than 18credit hours per semester.

Full-time Definition Students who are enrolled in 12 or more credit hours are classified as full -time. This is an academic classification and may differ from the full-time calculation of federal credit hours use for financial aid purposes.

Double Majors At this time double majors are not allowed at Atlanta Technical College.

Grading System Grades are issued at the end of each semester. Students are responsible for notifying the Admission Office of address changes. A grade of "C" or better is required in all courses for graduation. Transcripts of grades are not built for noncredit courses.

Grade A B C D F

Numerical Equivalent 90 - 100 80 - 89 70 - 79 60 - 69 0 - 59

Grade Points 4 3 2 1 0

The following symbols are approved for use in the cases indicated.

I

Indicates that students have an "incomplete" but have satisfactorily completed a substantial portion of the course work. For NON-ACADEMIC reasons beyond their control, the students have not been able to complete some specific part or amount of the work required. An "I" must be satisfactorily changed to a letter grade by the midpoint of the next semester, or it will be changed to the grade of "F" by the Registrar. Students must get approval from the instructor prior to the end of the semester to be eligible for an "I" grade. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.

IP

Indicates that a course continues beyond the end of the semester.

W

Students who withdraw before the midpoint of the semester receive a grade of “W� Withdrew. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.

WP

Indicates students who withdraw passing from a course after the midpoint of the semester receive a grade of "WP Withdrew Passing," if they were passing the course at the time of withdrawal. No credit is given and no grade points are calculated.

46

WF

Indicates students who withdraw from a course after the midpoint of a semester (or course) receive a grade of "WF-Withdrew Failing," if they were failing the course at the time of withdrawal. The "WF" grade is calculated as an "F" in the grade point average.

EX

Indicates that a student has exempted a course through examination or through the articulated Tech Prep programs. Credit is given but grade points are not calculated. Instructors must submit an Advanced Placement Verification Form to the registrar's office to report an exemption.

TR

Indicates that a student has been awarded transfer credit from another institution. Credit is given but no grade points are calculated. If a student earns credit for a course taken at Atlanta Technical College for which transfer credit has been awarded, then the transfer credit will be deleted from the student's record.

AC

Indicates articulated credit earned by students as a part of formal articulation agreements.

AU

Indicates an audited course. No grade is given, no credit hours are earned and grade points are not calculated. Auditing a course must be initiated during the registration process. Approval for an audit cannot be granted after participation in classroom instruction. Instructors must submit an Advanced Placement Verification Form to the registrar's office to report an audit. Audited classes are not eligible for financial aid.

Grade Point Average To calculate student grade point average, use this formula: Credit Hours x Grade Point Equivalent (GPE) = Total Quality Points.

Example: Grade A B C D

= = = =

Grade Point Equivalent (4.0) (3.0) (2.0) (1.0)

x x x x

Credit Hours (2.0) (5.0) (4.0) (5.0) Total (16.0)

= = = =

Quality Points 8.0 15.0 8.0 5.0 Total (36.0)

Multiply the number of Credit Hours for each course times the assigned Grade Point Equivalent. Total Credit Hours, and then total all Quality Points. Total Quality Points divided by Total credit Hours = Grade Point Average. 36.0 divided by 16 = 2.25 GPA.

Graduation Grade Point Average The graduation Grade Point Average (GPA) is calculated using only those courses required for graduation. (For example, if a student took classes in Welding, but is graduating in Cosmetology, then the Welding classes are not calculated in the GPA for graduation). When a course is taken more than once, the final grade will be used in calculating the GPA for graduation. An overall 2.0 GPA is required for graduation.

Graduation Requirements Atlanta Technical College conducts one commencement exercise per year for students who have completed all graduation requirements or are in their final classes at that time. To qualify for graduation, the student must satisfy the following requirements: 1. Complete an Application for Graduation by the posted semester deadline and submit to the Registrar. 2. Complete the prescribed course requirements with a graduation grade point average of 2.0. *A grade of “C� or better is required in all courses for graduation.* 3. If transfer credit has been accepted, receive credit from Atlanta Technical College for a minimum of 50% of the hours required for the course requirements. 4. Satisfy all financial obligations to the college, including payment of all graduation fees.

Honor Graduates Students who achieve a cumulative GPA of 3.50 or higher will receive special recognition at graduation.

Letter Grades Numerical values of letter grades are as follows:

Grade Appeal Procedures Students may only appeal a final course grade. STEP 1. STEP 2. STEP 3.

If students receive final grades and desire to clarify questions about grades, program standards, and grading practices, they should first discuss disagreements with their instructors and have appropriate documentation. When an agreement cannot be reached at step one, students should submit written appeals within ten days to the dean. The students' appeals must be signed and dated. The dean must respond within ten days after receipt of notification from step one. If an agreement is not reached from the previous steps, students should submit copies of their original appeal within ten school days to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, who will have ten days to review and respond to the appeal. “The decision of the Vice President of Academic Affairs shall be final.”

Academic Dismissal Appeal Procedures If students are dismissed from a program of study for academic reasons, they may appeal by following steps two through three as outlined in the appeal procedure for grades.

Grade Change Procedures Grade changes must be accomplished by instructors by the mid-point of the semester immediately following the semester in which the grade was submitted. Students should contact the instructor promptly if there are questions concerning the grade(s) earned. Grades will be changed by the Registrar once written notification of the grade change has been received from the instructor.

Repeating a Course A course may be repeated two times during the duration of the program. When a course is taken more than once, the final grade will be used in calculating the grade point average for graduation. Under extenuating circumstances a student may be allowed to enroll in a course again with the written permission of the Vice President for Academic Affairs. Any exceptions to this policy will appear in specific program policies.

Work Ethics Grade A work ethics grade will be given each semester for specified courses. The work ethics grade will not affect the academic grade point average (GPA) of a student; that is, work ethics grades remain separate from academic grades.

DENTAL HYGIENE DIVISION: HEATLH & PUBLIC SAFETY TECHNOLOGIES DENTAL HYGIENE Associates Degree PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Major Code: DH13

The Dental Hygiene program is a sequence of courses that prepares students for positions in the dental profession. Learning opportunities develop academic, technical, and professional knowledge and skills required for job acquisition, retention, and advancement. Registered dental hygienists work in a variety of professional settings including private and public practice. They provide numerous services designed to detect and prevent diseases of the mouth. These include oral prophylaxis and examination of head, neck, and the oral cavity for signs of disease. Additionally, patient education regarding oral hygiene, performing radiographic examinations, and application of fluoride and/or sealants are services provided by dental hygienists. Registered dental hygienists play a vital role in protecting the oral health of the American public. Program graduates receive a Dental Hygiene Associate of Applied Science degree.

OCCUPATIONAL TRENDS Occupational Trends: The demand for dental services will grow because of population growth, older people increasingly retaining more teeth, and a growing emphasis on preventative dental care. To help meet this demand, facilities that provide dental care, particularly dentists' offices, will increasingly employ additional dental hygienists to meet the growing need. Ongoing research indicating a link between oral health and general health also will spur additional demand for preventative dental services, which are typically provided by dental hygienists. Nationally the dental hygiene profession is growing to include position with expanded duties as Advanced Dental Hygiene Practitioners, also known as community dental health coordinators. This position will provide costeffective, diagnostic, preventive, therapeutic and restorative services directly to the un-served public. Advancement opportunities outside the dental office include completion of a bachelor or master degree in dental hygiene. Dental hygienists may also pursue careers within education, Oral pharmaceutical corporations or public health settings.

EMPLOYMENT TRENDS Dental hygiene ranks among the fastest growing of occupations. (Occupational Outlook Handbook, 2010 -11th Edition) Employment of dental hygienists is expected to grow 36 percent through 2018, which is much faster than the average for all occupations. This projected growth ranks dental hygienists among the fastest growing occupations, in response to increasing demand for dental care and more use of hygienists. Job prospects are expected to be favorable in most areas, but competition for jobs is likely in some areas. In Georgia alone the forecasted openings are predicted to be elevated by 25% for the next 5 years. (EMSO Occupational Report). Program graduates may be employed in a variety of settings including private practice and public health settings such as clinicians, educators, researchers, administrators, sales and consultants.

Major Code: EC13

The Early Childhood Care and Education associate of applied science degree program is a sequence of courses designed to prepare students for a variety of careers in the field of early childhood education. The program emphasizes a combination of early childhood care and education theory and practical application as well as general core competencies necessary for successful employment. Graduates have qualifications to be employed in early care and educations settings including child care centers, Head start, Georgia Pre- K programs, and elementary school paraprofessional positions. Graduates of this program will receive one of six areas of specialization: Exceptionalities, School Age and Youth Care, Family Child Care, Infant and Toddler Development, Program Administration and Paraprofessional.

ADMISSIONS REQUIREMENTS

 Must be 16 years of age  Completion of high school or GED and submission of official transcript required to apply  Achievement of minimum program admission scores in Reading, English, and Math  Transfer of previous post-secondary credits will be determined by the registrar Student Performance/Graduation Requirements: Students must maintain a 2.0 grade point average and complete all required courses to graduate. Blood and Airborne Pathogens: Students enrolled in Category I and II programs at Atlanta Technical College will be performing tasks in which there is a normal occurrence for exposure to blood, other potentially infectious body materials, and airborne pathogens. These tasks will be performed in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical activities for each occupational training program/course. Students will be required to present documentation of Hepatitis B and Tuberculosis immunizations as a result of potential occupational exposure. Students should contact their program directors for more information on policies and procedures regarding blood and airborne pathogens. Negative tuberculosis skin analysis is a requirement for participation in Practicum ECCE 1121 and Internship ECCE 2240. Criminal Background Check: All Early Childhood Care and Education students are required to submit a completed state and federal criminal records background check prior to registering for Practicum and Internship courses. The State of Georgia has a law regarding the placement of persons with criminal records in childcare facilities. Anyone who has been convicted of a felony offense, or of neglecting or abusing a dependent person, a sexual offense or any other “covered crime” will not be allowed to work in a childcare facility. If you are affected by this law, or think you may be, discuss your situation immediately with the department chair. Because your employment options may be severely limited in the early childhood profession, a person who has received an unsatisfactory criminal records check is discouraged from pursuing the ECCE program of study and may need to reconsider their chosen field of study. Students will not be allowed to take ECCE 1121 and ECCE 2240, if their criminal history/arrest record request form (from any police department in the state of Georgia or federal background check) comes back with an arrest history.

Blood and Airborne Pathogens: Students enrolled in Category I and II programs at Atlanta Technical College will be performing tasks in which there is a normal occurrence for exposure to blood, other potentially infectious body materials, and airborne pathogens. These tasks will be performed in the classroom, laboratory, and clinical activities for each occupational training program/course. Students may be required to present documentation of Hepatitis B and Tuberculosis immunizations as a result of potential occupational exposure. Students should contact their program directors for more information on policies and procedures regarding blood and airborne pathogens. Criminal Background Check: All Early Childhood Care and Education students may be required to submit a completed state and federal criminal records background check form during their first semester. The State of Georgia has a law regarding the placement of persons with criminal records in childcare facilities. Anyone who has been convicted of a felony offense, or of neglecting or abusing a dependent person, a sexual offense or any other “covered crime” will not be allowed to work in a childcare facility. If you are affected by this law, or think you may be, discuss your situation immediately with the department chair. Because your employment options may be severely limited in the early childhood profession, a person who has received an unsatisfactory criminal records check is discouraged from pursuing the ECCE program of study and may need to reconsider their chosen field of study.
