                          Employer Direct Bill/Agency Contract

Some students receive tuition assistance from their employer or workforce agency. If you are eligible for employer
direct bill or agency contract, you must submit an approved tuition authorization form or tuition voucher
completed and signed by an official employer/agency representative. The authorized voucher must be submitted to
the student finance office prior to the first class session in order for the school to bill the employer or agency.




                                           Federal Student Aid
Financial aid is designed to help students pay for school. The Federal Pell Grant is available for students to apply
for, utilizing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Grant awards will be based on student
eligibility. This is a need–based federal grant for undergraduate students and typically does not require repayment.


                                            Institutional Grant
ESGVROP/TC offers Institutional Grants to those who qualify. It is a need-based grant. The student must
complete an application; the application will be reviewed by committee members and will notify the student of
eligibility status. A Financial Aid Representative can assist you in applying for the institutional grant.

                                      Satisfactory Academic Progress
   In order to be making satisfactory progress toward a certificate, and continue to be eligible for financial aid
students must maintain a rating of “Satisfactory” progress or maintain an overall grade average of 70% or “C”. They
must also proceed through the program at a pace leading to completion within a maximum time frame. The
students’ attendance and progress will be reported on a monthly basis by program teachers.

                                 Probation & Reinstatement Procedures
   In the event a student fails to meet satisfactory progress, the student will be placed on probation for one month.
A student may receive financial aid during the probation period. However, by the end of the probationary period,
the student must meet satisfactory progress in order to receive additional financial aid.

                                               Appeals Procedures
   If a student is determined ineligible for financial aid due to satisfactory progress requirements not being met, the
student may appeal this decision with the Director of Financial Aid by indicating in writing the reasons the
minimum requirements were not met and why aid should not be terminated. The Director of Financial Aid will
review the appeal and notify the student of the decision in writing.
                                                Course Repetition
Students are not permitted to receive financial aid for repeating courses, which have been successfully completed.

                                                 Payment Periods
The school defines an academic year as 900 clock hours and 26 weeks of attendance for all programs. All programs
are divided into two payment periods of 450 hours of attendance. Courses with over 900 hours of attendance will
extend into the following award year. Payments for courses under 900 hours will be prorated. Payments will be
calculated according to the number of hours or the number of weeks in the payment period. Students who complete
course work faster than full time status will have pay periods calculated by weeks of attendance which reduces the amount of
the award payment.
                                               Payment Periods…
                                      Here is an example on a 900 hour course:
                                     1 – 450 HOURS = FIRST PAY PERIOD
                                   451 – 900 HOURS = SECOND PAY PERIOD

The following hours cannot be counted towards a pay period:

   Hours from unsatisfactory ratings.
   Hours from incomplete course work.
   Hours completed before passing the Wonderlic Basic Skills Test, (WBST).
   Hours completed in previous award year if not a Pell Grant participant during that year.

            Students must be enrolled at least half-time (12 hours per week) to have all cost of attendance
            components used to calculate the cost of attendance. The cost of attendance determines the
                                     amount of assistance a student is awarded.
                               Components for determining the cost of attendance:

                                                  Tuition & Fees

                                              Pell Grant Credit Balances
    A Pell grant credit balance occurs when a school credits Pell grant funds, to a students’ account and those funds
exceed the students’ allowable charges. A school must pay the excess Pell grant funds (credit balance) directly to the
student as soon as possible, but no later than 14 days from the date the credit balance occurred. The Financial Aid
award letter will have the expected credit balance the student is expected to receive.

                            Repayment Policy for the Federal Pell Grant
Students who do not complete at least 60% of the hours of each pay period must repay the unearned portion of the
Pell Grant. This unearned portion is based on the total number of hours scheduled to be completed and divided by
the total hours in the pay period (See Example of Repayment calculation below). Students must repay the amount
received as an overpayment.

   Students who owe repayments or overpayments are ineligible for additional Federal Pell Grant assistance.
Students who owe a repayment or overpayment for Federal Pell Grant Funds will be reported to the Federal
Government and will not be eligible for Title IV funds. Sample of Repayment Calculation is available upon request at the
Financial Aid Office.
                                           Title IV Refund Process
General

Federal Law regulations require that schools compute a student withdrawal refund calculation to determine the
federal student aid earned by the student when he or she withdraws from a school either officially, or unofficially.




                                                            19
                          FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION

II. Initiating Withdrawal Process/Timelines

Schools are required to withdraw students from school within the guidelines indicated above in section (B). or as
soon as the school determines that the student will not be returning. Withdrawal calculation must be processed and
sent to student accounts office within 7 days of notification or withdrawal.

A. Departments responsible for initiating the withdrawal process are:
1. Academics – Students failure to maintain satisfactory progress
2. Records/Registrar – Students failure to follow attendance policy guidelines.
3. Academics – Students notifies school that they are withdrawing.
B. The Student Status Change Form is completed for each withdrawal. The Department that begins the
withdrawal process must initiate the Student Status Change Form.

C. The individual at the campus who is responsible for updating the schools computer system must change the
student’s status to withdrawn. The following dates must match:
1. The effective date of change on the Student Status Change Form.
2. The date the student signs and dates the Student Status Change Form (if Applicable)
3. The computer system termination or drop date.
4. The date of determination for return of title IV calculations.
This date must reflect the date the student was not eligible to continue, or the date the student notified the school

Student Status Change Form. The withdrawal process will be initiated by the Academics/Registrar by paper format
to student accounts and financial Aid department of the withdrawal status and begins completing the paper work.
The Academic/Registrar department has 7 consecutive days from the date of determining the withdrawal to
communicate to Financial Aid and Student Accounts department by paper.

III. Financial Aid Department Withdrawal Process

The Director of Financial Aid is responsible for handling all student status change forms received by the academic
department. ESGVROP uses the Department of Education Template RT24 form “Treatment of Title IV Funds
When a Student Withdraws from a Clock-Hour Program”.

                          FINANCIAL AID INFORMATION
                                 Title IV Refund continued
A. The Director of Financial Aid reviews the following Data on the Status Change Form for accuracy:
1. The number of clock hours the student has completed verses what’s on the computer system.
2. Verifies if the student is a title IV recipient.

B. The Director will complete a RT24 form for all Title IV recipients. The RT24 form is completed steps 1
through 10 according to the directions of the form.

C. If the RT24 form requires a refund by the school under step 6 of the RT24 form the Director of
Financial Aid will adjust Edexpress Systems, reflecting the disbursements according to the required refund.

D. The Director of Financial Aid is responsible for providing copies of the RT24 forms for all title IV
recipients to the student accounts department with in 7 calendar days from the first day of receiving the
status change form.

Percentage Earned by the Student - A percentage of federal student aid will be returned as “unearned”
by the student if the withdrawal is prior to completing over 60 % of their program. The portion of Title IV
federal student aid earned by the student as of the withdrawal date is calculated on a pro rata basis by
comparing the total program hours to the total number of hours of class and lab time attended, or
scheduled to have been attended prior to withdrawal.

Federal Regulations state that the amount of the Title IV refund is based on the percentage of Title IV
funds earned by the student at the time of withdrawal. In order to determine whether Title IV funds must
be returned, the school must calculate the following:

1.      To determine the percentage of the payment period completed, the number of days* attended in the
payment period is divided by the total days*in the payment period. *Days=calendar days for purposes of
this formula, and therefore include weekends and holidays. Only scheduled breaks of 5 days or more and
approved leave of absences are excluded.

2.     The net amount of Title IV funds disbursed, and what could have been disbursed for the payment
period is multiplied by the percentage of the payment period completed. The result is the amount of
“unearned” Title IV.

3.     The earned aid is subtracted from the aid that was actually disbursed to or on behalf of the student.

4.     The Institution will return the lesser of the total earned aid or the unearned institutional charges for
the payment period.

5.     Unearned aid is allocated back to the Title programs in the following order as specified by law:

1.     Federal Pell Grant Program
2.     Other Assistance awarded

                                                          21
Post Withdrawal Disbursements - A Student who withdraws, or otherwise ceases attendance has lost
Federal Student Aid eligibility and generally may not receive further disbursements for the enrollment
period. However, a post withdrawal disbursement distinguish payments made after a student loses
eligibility, whereas Post-withdrawal disbursements is aid a student has “earned” based solely on the period
of enrollment calculated on the Return of
Title IV Funds Calculation (RT24) and must be disbursed within 90 days of the date of determination
(withdrawal date). If the student is eligible to receive a post withdrawal disbursement for the period of
enrollment for which an RT24 calculation was determined, the Financial Aid Director may only approve a
post withdrawal disbursement for amounts indicated in the completed RT24 calculation. To ensure the
correct amounts are approved and disbursed, the Director of financial aid provides copies to student
accounts of the RT24 post withdrawal disbursement information with the disbursement Batch roster
request.


III. Student Accounts/Posting the Refunds

A.    Recording Refunds
Student Accounts manager is responsible for the completion of the all necessary refunds and record the
refunds to the student account indicating the source and the refund amounts.

B.    45 Day or Less Timeframe
It is ESGVROP policy that the timeframe from withdrawal date, to receipt of drop calculation at the
student accounts department, be no longer than 15 days from the date of determination that the student
withdrew. Adherence to this policy ensures refunds are processed in a timely manner. This is critical to the
success of the school, as late refunds are the most serious audit finding by the U.S. Department of
Education, and can cause serious liabilities for the school. Therefore, drops must be fully processed at the
student accounts office by: 15 days from the date of determination that the student withdrew. The 15 day
timeframe will allow student accounts to meet the 45 day timeframe policy per the U.S Department of
Education. An Institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible as soon as
possible, but no later than 45 days after it determines, or should have determined that the student withdrew.

                Notification of Rights under FERPA for Post-Secondary Institutions
                           The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
                                   Guidance for Eligible Students
                                                2011


The following guidance provides eligible students with general information about the Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). This document is a compilation and update of various letters and
guidance documents previously issued that respond to a variety of questions about FERPA. While this
guidance reflects our best and most current interpretation of applicable FERPA requirements, it does not
supersede the statute or regulations. We will attempt to update this document from time to time in response
to questions and concerns. FERPA is a Federal law that is administered by the Family Policy Compliance
Office (Office) in the U.S. Department of Education (Department). 20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99.
FERPA applies to all educational agencies and institutions (e.g., schools) that receive funding under any
program administered by the Department. Parochial and private schools at the elementary and secondary
levels generally do not receive such funding and are, therefore, not subject to FERPA. Private
postsecondary schools, however, generally do receive such funding and are subject to FERPA. Once a
student reaches 18 years of age or attends a postsecondary institution, he or she becomes an "eligible


                                                     22
student," and all rights formerly given to parents under FERPA transfer to the student. The eligible student
has the right to have access to his or her education records, the right to seek to have the records amended,
the right to have control over the disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records (except
in certain circumstances specified in the FERPA regulations, some of which are discussed below), and the
right to file a complaint with the Department. The term "education records" is defined as those records that
contain information directly related to a student and which are maintained by an educational agency or
institution or by a party acting for the agency or institution. FERPA generally prohibits the improper
disclosure of personally identifiable information derived from education records. Thus, information that an
official obtained through personal knowledge or observation, or has heard orally from others, is not
protected under FERPA. This remains applicable even if education records exist which contain that
information, unless the official had an official role in making a determination that generated a protected
education record. Under FERPA, a school is not generally required to maintain particular education records
or education records that contain specific information. Rather, a school is required to provide certain
privacy protections for those education records that it does maintain. Also, unless there is
2
an outstanding request by an eligible student to inspect and review education records, FERPA permits the
school to destroy such records without notice to the student.
Access to Education Records
Under FERPA, a school must provide an eligible student with an opportunity to inspect and review his or
her education records within 45 days following its receipt of a request. A school is required to provide an
eligible student with copies of education records, or make other arrangements, if a failure to do so would
effectively prevent the student from obtaining access to the records. A case in point would be a situation in
which the student does not live within commuting distance of the school. A school is not generally required
by FERPA to provide an eligible student with access to academic calendars, course syllabi, or general notices
such as announcements of specific events or extra-curricular activities. That type of information is not
generally directly related to an individual student and, therefore, does not meet the definition of an
education record. Under FERPA, a school is not required to provide information that is not maintained or
to create education records in response to an eligible student's request. Accordingly, a school is not required
to provide an eligible student with updates on his or her progress in a course (including grade reports) or in
school unless such information already exists in the form of an education record.
Amendment of Education Records
Under FERPA, an eligible student has the right to request that inaccurate or misleading information in his
or her education records be amended. While a school is not required to amend education records in
accordance with an eligible student's request, the school is required to consider the request. If the school
decides not to amend a record in accordance with an eligible student's request, the school must inform the
student of his or her right to a hearing on the matter. If, as a result of the hearing, the school still decides
not to amend the record, the eligible student has the right to insert a statement in the record setting forth his
or her views. That statement must remain with the contested part of the eligible student’s record for as long
as the record is maintained. However, while the FERPA amendment procedure may be used to challenge
facts that are inaccurately recorded, it may not be used to challenge a grade, an opinion, or a substantive
decision made by a school about an eligible student. FERPA was intended to require only that schools
conform to fair recordkeeping practices and not to override the accepted standards and procedures for
making academic assessments, disciplinary rulings, or placement determinations. Thus, while FERPA
affords eligible students the right to seek to amend education records which contain inaccurate information,
this right cannot be used to challenge a grade or an individual’s opinion, or a substantive decision made by a
school about a student. Additionally, if FERPA’s amendment procedures are not applicable to an eligible
student’s request for amendment of education records, the school is not required under FERPA to hold a
hearing on the matter.

Disclosure of Education Records
Under FERPA, a school may not generally disclose personally identifiable information from an eligible
student's education records to a third party unless the eligible student has provided written consent.
However, there are a number of exceptions to FERPA's prohibition against nonconsensual disclosure of
personally identifiable information from education records. Under these exceptions, schools are permitted to
disclose personally identifiable information from education records without consent, though they are not
required to do so. Following is general information regarding some of these exceptions. One of the
exceptions to the prior written consent requirement in FERPA allows “school officials,” including teachers,
within a school to obtain access to personally identifiable information contained in education records
provided the school has determined that they have “legitimate educational interest” in the information.
Although the term “school official” is not defined in the statute or regulations, this Office generally
interprets the term to include parties such as: professors; instructors; administrators; health staff; counselors;
attorneys; clerical staff; trustees; members of committees and disciplinary boards; and a contractor,
volunteer or other party to whom the school has outsourced institutional services or functions. A school
must inform eligible students of how it defines the terms “school official” and “legitimate educational
interest” in its annual notification of FERPA rights. A school official generally has a legitimate educational
interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional
responsibility. Additional information about the annual notification of rights is found below in this guidance
document. Another exception permits a school to disclose personally identifiable information from an
eligible student's education records, without consent, to another school in which the student seeks or
intends to enroll. The sending school may make the disclosure if it has included in its annual notification of
rights a statement that it forwards education records in such circumstances. Otherwise, the sending school
must make a reasonable attempt to notify the student in advance of making the disclosure, unless the
student has initiated the disclosure. The school must also provide an eligible student with a copy of the
records that were released if requested by the student. FERPA also permits a school to disclose personally
identifiable information from education records without consent when the disclosure is in connection with
financial aid for which the student has applied or which the student has received, if the information is
necessary for such purposes as to: determine the eligibility for the aid; determine the amount of the aid;
determine the conditions for the aid; and/or enforce the terms and conditions of the aid. With respect to
this exception, the term "financial aid" means payment of funds provided to an individual (or payment in
kind of tangible or intangible property to the individual) that is conditioned on the individual's attendance at
a school. Another exception permits a school to disclose personally identifiable information from education
records without consent when the disclosure is to the parents of a "dependent student" as that term is
defined in Section 152 of the Internal Revenue Code. Generally, if either parent
4
has claimed the student as a dependent on the parent's most recent year's income tax statement, the school
may non-consensually disclose the eligible student's education records to both parents under this exception.
Postsecondary institutions may also disclose personally identifiable information from education records,
without consent, to appropriate parties, including parents of an eligible student, in connection with a health
or safety emergency. Under this provision, colleges and universities may notify parents when there is a health or
safety emergency involving their son or daughter, even if the parents do not claim the student as a dependent.
FERPA also permits a school to disclose personally identifiable information from education records without
consent when the disclosure is to the parents of a student at a postsecondary institution regarding the
student's violation of any Federal, State, or local law, or of any rule or policy of the institution, governing the
use or possession of alcohol or a controlled substance. The school may non-consensually disclose
information under this exception if the school determines that the student has committed a disciplinary
violation with respect to that use or possession and the student is under 21 years of age at the time of the
disclosure to the parent. Another exception permits a school to non-consensually disclose personally


                                                        24
identifiable information from a student's education records when such information has been appropriately
designated as directory information. "Directory information" is defined as information contained in the
education records of a student that would not generally be considered harmful or an invasion of privacy if
disclosed. Directory information could include information such as the student's name, address, e-mail
address, telephone listing, photograph, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially
recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, dates of attendance,
degrees and awards received, the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended, grade level
or year (such as freshman or junior), and enrollment status (undergraduate or graduate; full-time or part
time). A school may disclose directory information without consent if it has given public notice of the types
of information it has designated as directory information, the eligible student’s right to restrict the disclosure
of such information, and the period of time within which an eligible student has to notify the school that he
or she does not want any or all of those types of information designated as directory information. Also,
FERPA does not require a school to notify eligible students individually of the types of information it has
designated as directory information. Rather, the school may provide this notice by any means likely to
inform eligible students of the types of information it has designated as directory information. There are
several other exceptions to FERPA’s prohibition against non-consensual disclosure of personally
identifiable information from education records, some of which are briefly mentioned below. Under certain
conditions (specified in the FERPA regulations), a school may nonconsensually disclose personally
identifiable information from education records: to authorized representatives of the Comptroller General
of the United States, the Attorney General of the United States, the U.S. Secretary of Education, and State
and local educational authorities for audit or evaluation of Federal or State supported
5
education programs, or for the enforcement of or compliance with Federal legal requirements that relate to
those programs;
• to organizations conducting studies for or on behalf of the school making the disclosure
for the purposes of administering predictive tests, administering student aid programs, or
improving instruction;
• to comply with a judicial order or a lawfully issued subpoena;
• to the victim of an alleged perpetrator of a crime of violence or a non-forcible sex offense concerning the
final results of a disciplinary hearing with respect to the alleged crime; and
• to any third party the final results of a disciplinary proceeding related to a crime of violence or non-
forcible sex offense if the student who is the alleged perpetrator is found to have violated the school’s rules
or policies. The disclosure of the final results only includes: the name of the alleged perpetrator, the
violation committed, and any sanction imposed against the alleged perpetrator. The disclosure must not
include the name of any other student, including a victim or witness, without the written consent of that
other student.
As stated above, conditions specified in the FERPA regulations at 34 CFR § 99. 31 have to be
met before a school may non-consensually disclose personally identifiable information from
education records in connection with any of the exceptions mentioned above.
Annual Notification of Rights
Under FERPA, a school must annually notify eligible students in attendance of their rights under
FERPA. The annual notification must include information regarding an eligible student's right to inspect
and review his or her education records, the right to seek to amend the records, the right to consent to
disclosure of personally identifiable information from the records (except in certain circumstances), and the
right to file a complaint with the Office regarding an alleged failure by a school to comply with FERPA. It
must also inform eligible students of the school's definitions of the terms "school official" and "legitimate
educational interest." FERPA does not require a school to notify eligible students individually of their rights
under FERPA. Rather, the school may provide the notice by any means likely to inform eligible students of
their rights. Thus, the annual notification may be published by various means, including any of the

                                                       25
following: in a schedule of classes; in a student handbook; in a calendar of school events; on the school’s
website (though this should not be the exclusive means of notification); in the student newspaper; and/or
posted in a central location at the school or various locations throughout the school. Additionally, some
schools include their directory information notice as part of the annual notice of rights under FERPA.

Law Enforcement Units and Law Enforcement Unit Records
A “law enforcement unit” means any individual, office, department, division or other component of a
school, such as a unit of commissioned police officers or non-commissioned security guards, that is
officially authorized or designated by the school to: enforce any local, State, or Federal law, or refer to
appropriate authorities a matter for enforcement of any law against any individual or organization; or to
maintain the physical security and safety of the school. The law enforcement unit does not lose its status as a
law enforcement unit if it also performs other, nonlaw enforcement functions for the school, including
investigation of incidents or conduct that constitutes or leads to a disciplinary proceeding against a student.
“Law enforcement unit records” (i.e., records created by the law enforcement unit, created for a law
enforcement purpose, and maintained by the law enforcement unit) are not “education records” subject to
the privacy protections of FERPA. As such, the law enforcement unit may refuse to provide an eligible
student with an opportunity to inspect and review law enforcement unit records, and it may disclose law
enforcement unit records to third parties without the eligible student’s prior written consent. However,
education records, or personally identifiable information from education records, which the school shares
with the law enforcement unit do not lose their protected status as education records because they are
shared with the law enforcement unit.
Complaints of Alleged Failures to Comply with FERPA
FERPA vests the rights it affords in the eligible student. The statute does not provide for these rights to be
vested in a third party who has not suffered an alleged violation of their rights under FERPA. Thus, we
require that a student have "standing," i.e., have suffered an alleged violation of his or her rights under
FERPA, in order to file a complaint. The Office may investigate those timely complaints that contain
specific allegations of fact giving reasonable cause to believe that a school has violated FERPA. A timely
complaint is defined as one that is submitted to the Office within 180 days of the date that the complainant
knew or reasonably should have known of the alleged violation of FERPA. Complaints that do not meet
FERPA’s threshold requirement for timeliness are not investigated. If we receive a timely complaint that
contains a specific allegation of fact giving reasonable cause to believe that a school has violated FERPA, we
may initiate an administrative investigation into the allegation in accordance with procedures outlined in the
FERPA regulations. If a determination is made that a school violated FERPA, the school and the
complainant are so advised, and the school is informed of the steps it must take to come into compliance
with the law. The investigation is closed when voluntary compliance is achieved. Please note that the eligible
student should state his or her allegations as clearly and specifically as possible. To aid us in efficiently
processing allegations, we ask that an eligible student only include supporting documentation that is relevant
to the allegations provided. Otherwise, we may return the documentation and request clarification. This
Office does not have the resources
7
to review voluminous documents and materials to determine whether an allegation of a violation of FERPA
is included. An eligible student may obtain a complaint form by calling (202) 260-3887. For administrative
and privacy reasons, we do not discuss individual allegations and cases via email. Please mail completed
complaint forms to the Office (address below) for review and any appropriate action. Complaint Regarding
Access If an eligible student believes that a school has failed to comply with his or her request for access to
education records, the student may complete a FERPA complaint form and should include the following
specific information: the date of the request for access to the education records; the name of the school
official to whom the request was made (a dated copy of any written request to the school should be


                                                      26
provided, if possible); the response of the school official, if any; and the specific nature of the information
requested.
Complaint Regarding Amendment
If an eligible student believes that a school has failed to comply with his or her request for amendment of
inaccurate information in education records or failed to offer the student an opportunity for a hearing on
the matter, the student may complete a FERPA complaint form and should include the following specific
information: the date of the request for amendment of the education records; the name of the school
official to whom the request was made (a dated copy of any written request to the school should be
provided, if possible); the response of the school official, if any; the specific nature of the inaccurate
information for which amendment was requested; and evidence provided to the school to support the
assertion that such information is inaccurate.
Complaint Regarding Disclosure
If an eligible student believes that a school has improperly disclosed personally identifiable information
from his or her education records to a third party, the student may complete a FERPA complaint form and
should include the following specific information: the date or approximate date the alleged disclosure
occurred or the date the student learned of the disclosure; the name of the school official who made the
disclosure, if that is known; the third party to whom the disclosure was made; and the specific nature of the
education records disclosed.

                                                      27
  The Director of Academics monitors daily student attendance and monthly academic progress. East San Gabriel
Valley ROP/TC follows a non-term academic calendar. An academic year for a clock-hour program is at least 30
weeks of instructional time. The laws and regulations set the following minimum stands: 900 clock hours for a
program measured in clock hours. The ROP/TC measures progress in clock hours and is, therefore, a non-term
program.
                                                  Attendance
   East San Gabriel Valley ROP/Technical Center emphasizes the need for all students to attend class. Attendance
is important for academic success and prepares graduates to meet the demands of future employment. Regular
attendance and punctuality will help students develop good habits and attitudes necessary to compete in today’s
competitive job market. Attendance is considered in the evaluation of the student’s academic performance.
Guidelines are listed below:


   1. If any student is absent from the ROP for more than 10 consecutive calendar days and no contact has been
      made during that period, the student will be withdrawn from the ROP.
   2. To maintain satisfactory attendance a student must complete a minimum of 108 clock hours for the 600, and
      900 hour programs per month.

                                                     28
Daily record of attendance will be maintained. Students are required to sign in on a daily basis. If a student forgets
to sign in an absence will be recorded.

                                   Tardiness/Early Departure
Students who arrive for class after the scheduled start time may receive a tardy on their attendance sign in sheet.
Students who depart from class before the scheduled completion time may receive an early departure on their
attendance sign in sheet. Excessive tardiness and/or early departures can lead to dismissal from the ROP.



                           Missed coursework due to absence
Individual instructors must approve any make up homework, projects, quizzes or tests. Missed coursework that is
turned in late will be considered when computing a student’s final course grade.




                                            Leave of Absence
An approved Leave of Absence is a temporary interruption in a student’s attendance due to the following
conditions:
       Medical (including pregnancy)
       Personal (family care issues, loss of family member)
       Military Duty
       Jury Duty (long cases)
To initiate a Leave of Absence, a student must request an appointment with the Academic Counselor. The total
length of time off must not exceed six months.
                        Ride along Internships, Clinical and Externships
Clinical and practicum experience required in some programs enable students to gain on the job training as well as
experience, working with patients and clients in the health fields. Students participating in clinical and internships
work under the direct supervision of the instructor. Students assigned to clinical or practicum sites:
    1. Are expected to meet all site requirements.
    2. Must turn in the hours on a weekly basis to the instructor.

                                        Satisfactory Progress
To be eligible for Federal Student Aid (FSA) funds, a student must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
In order to be making satisfactory progress toward a certificate and continue to be eligible for financial aid, students
must maintain a rating of “Satisfactory” progress; maintain a grade average of 70% or a “C” an 80% or a “B” for
the EMT program, and proceed through the program at a pace leading to completion within a maximum time

            a. 900 hour programs which are 12 months in length must be completed within 1 year and 6 months.
            b. 600 hour programs which are 6 months in length must be completed within 9 months.
            c. Students exceeding these timeframes will not be eligible to receive financial aid.



                                         Academic Probation
In the event that a student fails to meet satisfactory progress, the student will be placed on Academic probation for
one month. A student may receive financial aid during the probationary period. However, by the end of the
probationary period, the student must meet satisfactory progress in order to receive any additional financial aid.




                                                      30
A student on probation will be counseled by the instructor and afforded the opportunity to improve at the
instructor’s discretion. If there is no improvement, the student will be referred to an Administrator for counseling.

                                         Academic Dismissal
Students who fail to meet the GPA requirements and/or have not completed the minimum clock hours for their
program after the probationary period will be placed on academic dismissal. Students lose financial aid eligibility
while on academic dismissal.



                                 Financial Aid Reinstatement
Financial aid eligibility is reinstated when the GPA requirement is met and /or the minimum clock hours have been
satisfactorily completed. SAP for financial aid reinstatement will be monitored at the end of each month.




                                          Academic Appeals
If a student is deemed ineligible for financial aid due to satisfactory progress requirements not being met, the
student may appeal this decision to the Director of Financial Aid. The student must indicate in writing, the reason(s)
why the minimum requirements were not met and why aid should not be terminated. The Director of Financial Aid
will review the appeal and notify the student in writing of the decision. Students with extenuating circumstances
may appeal their academic dismissal. Students must submit an appeal letter detailing their circumstances to the
Director of Academics for review within 30 days.

                                          Course Repetition
Students are not permitted to receive financial aid for repeating courses, which have been successfully completed.



                                        Grade Point Average



                                                      31
The cumulative GPA Grade Point Average (GPA) indicates the overall achievement of the student for all subjects
completed. It is computed by dividing the sum of the grade points earned by the sum of graded units taken. For
courses that have been repeated, the highest grade earned will be used in computing the GPA.

                                           Repeating Classes
   If a grade of “F” is received, the class/module must be repeated. If a grade of “D” is received, the class/module
must be repeated if it is a prerequisite for an advanced class. To earn a certificate, a grade of “C” must be received.
A “D” grade may be repeated to improve the Grade Point Average (GPA) at the student’s option. A class may be
repeated only once. Financial Aid is not available to cover the cost of repeating a class.



                                               Re-enrollment
Following the notification of dismissal from the school, a student may appeal to the Administration Office for
reinstatement if unusual and verifiable circumstances caused dismissal. Appeals for reinstatement must be received
by September 1, for the Fall semester, and January 31, for the Spring semester. Current policy dictates a signed
written contract between the school and the student in order for reinstatement. If a student has been dismissed,
they will not automatically be readmitted after one term of dismissal. Their entire record will be reviewed prior to
consideration for reinstatement.



                         Graduation Completion Requirements
A student successfully completes the program when the ROP/TC considers the student to have passed the
coursework associated with the required class hours.



                                Transferability of Coursework
ESGVROP/TC cannot guarantee transferability of course credits except with those institutions that have written
articulation agreements with ESGVROP/TC. Normally, a four-year college evaluates work completed by the
undergraduate transfer student in terms of its relationship to the course offerings and degree requirements of the
four-year school, and grants credit for pertinent subjects that have been completed in a satisfactory manner.



                                                       32
However, transfer students must realize that each institution sets its own requirements in the matter of specific
courses and retains the final approval of courses accepted for transfer from this facility.


                               ACADEMIC INFORMATION

                                       Transfer Requirements
Students planning to transfer to a four-year college or university should understand that admission requirements,
general education requirements and transferability of courses will vary from school to school, and from major to
major. Consequently, students planning to transfer should carefully read the requirements set forth in the catalogs
and brochures of the institutions that interest them. These publications can be obtained directly from the colleges
and universities. A collection of these materials is available in the school’s Post-secondary Office and in most
public libraries.


Counselors and administrators are available to assist students in these matters. Students should also be aware that
admission to a four-year college or university may involve two, often different, admission steps: the first is
admission into the college or university and the second is admission into the student’s choice of major. It may
happen that a student will have the necessary requirements for admission into the school of his choice but not be
admitted to his or her choice of major.

                                                 Transcripts
Transcript Requests (official and unofficial) require at least 10 working days to complete. The official transcript will
be issued in a sealed envelope directly to the institution requested. Student wishing to receive their transcripts
themselves run the risk that the receiving institution may not consider them “official”.


The first transcript is free. Additional transcripts are $5.00 each; additional unofficial transcripts are $2.00 each.
Transcripts requested by reviewers of the ROP are not included in this count.



                     Student Conduct and Discipline Standards
Students in the Adult Career Training program assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible
with the school’s function as a post-secondary institution and suitable member of a training/academic community.



                                                       33
The school, therefore, expects its students to conduct themselves as responsible individuals, considerate and
respectful of the rights and interest of others. The following rules of conduct will be enforced:
Student Dress Code:
Students are expected to maintain a neat, clean appearance during class time, as they will in their future
employment. Students are expected to wear their uniforms whenever they are in a clinical setting off site and in
class.


Note: Individual programs may enforce a stricter dress code based on program requirements.


Cell phone:
To ensure a positive learning environment, all cell phones and pagers must be turned off in class. Calls may only be
made during break-time or after class. In addition, cell phones and electronic devices must not interrupt test time or
skills check off. Texting while in class is also considered an unacceptable interruption. In extenuating circumstances
you may receive emergency calls on the instructor’s approval. Using the classroom phone number is highly
recommended.


Unacceptable Behavior:
Includes, but is not limited to:
    1. The use of computers, phones, copiers and fax machines for anything other than employment and
         educational purposes.
    2. Installation/copying of software and modification of the computer workstation setups in any way.
    3. Any deliberate misuse of the facility, destroying property, resources, and equipment.
    4. Possession of weapons, alcohol, drugs, or other controlled substances.
    5. Any person who appears to be under the influence of drugs and alcohol.
    6. Theft/removal of materials (including books, software, supplies, and equipment) without a school
         representative approval.
    7. Damage or vandalism to the ROP center/property.
    8. Violent, rude or threatening behavior, including: physical/verbal abuse, profanity/inappropriate language,
         arguing, threats, gross misconduct, boisterous or disruptive behavior, and inappropriate gestures. Removal
         from campus will be enforced.

    9. Displaying negative behavior that disrupts training in the classroom.
    10. Any kind of harassment (see Harassment Policy).


                                                            34
    11. Sleeping during class, especially at the internship, and during workshops.
    12. Students should not invite any adult guest to attend class with them without the instructor’s approval.
        Liability issues do not allow minors in the classroom/clinical.
    13. It is recommended that valuables not be brought to class. ESGVROP/TC is not responsible for any loss,
        theft, or the destruction of such valuables.
    14. No cheating, plagiarism or other forms of academic dishonesty.


Academic Integrity:
Academic integrity, honesty, and ethics are required of all students of the Adult Career Training community.
Students are expected to conduct themselves in a manner reflecting the ideals, values, and educational goals of the
school, at all times.    All students must display academic integrity and honorable behavior; it is essential to
professional behavior which will extend beyond graduation, and are the foundation for ethical behavior in the
workplace.


Students in health careers are held to a higher standard due to the impact their career may have on the lives of
other. The general public, as well as professional health care organizations and accrediting organizations, hold
individuals in the healthcare industry to a high standard and expect schools to monitor, and foster professional
behavior in their students. As future healthcare professionals, students at East San Gabriel Valley ROP/TC have a
responsibility to follow academic integrity.


Academic integrity requires that work for which students receive credit be entirely the result of their own effort.
Academic dishonesty takes place when a student attempts to gain an unfair advantage over others or undermines
the academic integrity of the school. The following list includes some examples of violations:

    1. Cheating
                Using unauthorized material such as notes, electronic devices, cell phone or PDA accessories to
                 answer quiz/test questions.
                Copying another student’s homework, written assignment, worksheets, project, quiz/test, electronic
                 media, or data.
                Assisting or allowing someone else to cheat.
                Failure to report cheating to an academic official of the school.


    2. Plagiarism

                                                       35
              Representing the ideas, expressions, or material of another without due credit.
              Paraphrasing or condensing ideas from another person’s work without proper citation.
              Failing to document quotes and paraphrases from books, magazines, internet without proper works
               cited.


   3. Other forms of academic dishonesty
          Fraud and the alteration of a grade or official record.
          Changing examination solutions/answers after the fact, inventing, changing or falsifying lab and skills
           check.
          Purchasing and submitting written assignments, homework, or examinations.
          Reproducing or duplicating images, designs, Web pages without giving credit to the developer, artist, or
           designer.
          Submitting work created for another class without instructor approval.
          Selling or providing research papers, course work, or assignments to other students.
           The consequences for violating academic integrity can result in the following:
                    1.   Failing grade for the assignment
                    2.   Failure of the course/module
                    3.   Removal from the course/program
                    4.   Rescinding of a certificate

                                 Student Grievance Procedure
The student grievance procedure provides every student with a prompt and equitable means of seeking an
appropriate resolution for any alleged violation to his or her rights. The rights protected under these procedures
include, but are not limited to, those guaranteed by the established rules and Regulations of the East San Gabriel
Valley ROP/TC and the Education Code of the State of California. The procedures do not apply to the
employment right of protection against capricious, arbitrary, unreasonable, unlawful, false malicious or
professionally inappropriate evaluation or actions by an employee of the ROP. Students with complaints/grievances
relating to classroom or other matters should follow the following procedures:
    Step One:
    Discuss the issue with the instructor and /or faculty member. Every attempt should be made by both
    the student and faculty member to resolve the matter at this level. Complaints and/or concerns not
    resolved at the instructor and/or faculty level may proceed to Step Two.



                                                      37
Step Two:
If the complaint and/or concern remains unresolved after completing Step One, the student may elevate
the process by scheduling a meeting with the Academic Counselor or Dean of Student Services, to
discuss the matter. An appointment with the Academic Counselor or Dean of Student Services will be
provided to the student within ten (10) days of receiving the concern.

After discussing the matter at this step, the Academic Counselor or Dean of Student Services will have
five (5) days in which to provide the student with a decision. During the five (5) days, the Academic
Counselor or Dean of Student Services will investigate the matter and gather pertinent information.


If after completing Step Two, the student feels the matter remains unresolved, the student may continue
the process to Step Three.

Step Three:
If the student is dissatisfied with the response or solution after completing Step Two, the student may
elevate the process by addressing the complaint and/or concern in writing to the Director or designee
of Adult Career Training


The complaint and/or concern must:
a. Be in writing
b. Describe the nature of the complaint and/or concern and alleged violation(s)
c. Describe the steps the student has taken in attempting to resolve the matter


After the written complaint and/or concern has been submitted to the Director or designee of Adult
Career Training, the Director or designee will have five (5) days to review the matter and provide the
student with a decision.

 If the student feels that after completing Step Three, the school has not adequately addressed the
 complaint and/or concern, the student may consider contacting:

                                                Health Risks
The use of illegal drugs, tobacco, and the abuse of alcohol may have serious health consequences including damage
to the heart, lungs, and other organs. Alcohol-related accidents are the number one cause of death for people aged
15-24. The most significant health risk, besides death, is addiction. Addiction is a condition that can be fatal
without appropriate treatment. The following substances are known to cause addiction and have adverse health
effects:


Alcohol: Alcohol acts as a depressant with effects ranging from mild impairment of coordination, judgment,
memory loss, respiratory complications and death.
Nicotine/Tobacco:     The use of tobacco/nicotine can lead to severe lung disease, heart disease, cancer and
substantial effects on unborn children.
Marijuana/Hashish Products: The use of marijuana/hashish can impair the ability to concentrate, loss of memory,
coordination and may result in paranoia. Long term use may result in lung damage and possibly affect sperm
mobility.

                                                      39
Cocaine/Crack: Cocaine and crack stimulate the nervous system resulting in a fast heart beat and respiratory rate,
and elevated blood pressure. Use can cause death by sudden cardiac arrest or respiratory failure.
Stimulants: Stimulants such as amphetamines, methamphetamines, “crank”, “ice”, and others have similar effects to
cocaine but also include heart failure, stroke, delusions and paranoia.

                                      Health Risks continued
Anabolic Steroids: Effects of anabolic steroids range from acne to liver damage, cardiovascular and reproductive
abnormalities. Psychological effects include depression or aggressive behavior.
Hallucinogens, PCP, LSD: These substances affect the section of your brain that controls intellect and instinct.
Effects include violent behavior, self-inflicted injuries, convulsions, coma, heart and lung failure. In the case of
LSD, effect may persist even after use has ceased.
Prescription Narcotics (without medical supervision): Affects depend on the substance but can include depression,
addiction, and in extreme cases, death.
