1 – ABOUT MILLER-MOTTE

HISTORY
In 1929, Phillips Secretarial School was founded in Lynchburg, Virginia by the late Marjorie Green Phillips. In 1939, the College
was incorporated under the laws of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and in that same year moved to 1000 Church Street. In
1954, Virginia Commercial College, which had been established in 1909, was purchased from Mr. Homer Miller and merged with
Phillips Business College, providing local employers with secretarial, business administration, accounting, and general office
graduates. In that same year, Mr. Miller relocated to North Carolina and purchased Motte’s Secretarial School, which had been
founded in 1916 by Judge Leon Motte in Wilmington, North Carolina. The school provided the Wilmington legal community with
a small training center for courtroom stenographers. Following Judge Motte’s death, his wife expanded the curriculum to include
secretarial studies and thereby created Motte’s Secretarial School, providing local employers with secretarial, business
administration, accounting, and general office graduates. In 1979, Richard and Sharon Craig acquired the schools in Lynchburg
and Wilmington.

In 1987, a branch college was opened in Clarksville, Tennessee. Due to expansion, a new facility was built, and in 1989, the
College moved to its current location at 1820 Business Park Drive. In 1989, the Clarksville Campus applied for, and was
granted, stand-alone accreditation through the Association of Independent Colleges and Schools. During this time, the
Clarksville Campus was re-designated as the main campus, and the Wilmington Campus became a branch campus. The
Lynchburg campus maintained a main-campus designation.

In 1998, the stock of Miller-Motte Business College and Atlantic Coast Colleges, Inc. was purchased by Delta Educational
Systems, Inc. Phillips Business College in Lynchburg then changed its name to Miller-Motte Business College. In 2000, the
decision was made to revise the schools’ names to Miller-Motte College to better reflect the increasingly technical nature of the
programs being offered.

In January of 2002, the Lynchburg campus relocated to 1011 Creekside Lane to accommodate an increase in the programs
being offered and an increasing student population. In October of 2003, to accommodate the growing student population, the
Wilmington Campus moved to 5000 Market Street.

During the past 20 years, the college has added several key programs that have served the needs of the business and health
care community and provided even better employment opportunities for its graduates. In 1994, the College was approved to
offer a series of Associate degree programs and in 2004, the College received approval to offer to Bachelors degree programs.
Miller- Motte College is in a continual process of reviewing, assessing, and revising its curriculum in order to keep pace with
improvements in technology and the increasing needs of business and industry.

In 2003, the College recognized the need for a campus in the Cary, North Carolina area. This area has been designated one of
the fastest growing areas in the country and the demand is high for education and development of a skilled workforce. After
considerable research of demographics of the area and a survey of available facilities that would meet the College’s needs, the
site on Walnut Street in Cary was selected.

educational programs in relation to the applicant's career preferences, training needs, and individual motivations.
To qualify for acceptance by Miller-Motte College, each applicant must fully meet the following general requirements.

    •    Be interviewed by an admissions representative;
    •    Be interviewed by an admissions representative

To be officially accepted, newly enrolled students must remain continuously enrolled in school for the first 28 days of the

Interview & Tour: It is essential that you visit the College for a personal interview to tour the facility and discuss the selection of
a program most suited to your needs and objectives. Admissions Representatives are available to speak with you for day and
evening appointments. High school applicants should be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

Admission to the Six Weeks to Success Program
If an applicant meets all admissions requirements with the exception of the Wonderlic SLE score, but scores within four points of
the required threshold for admission into a program (or scores at least an 11), the applicant may be eligible for acceptance into
the Six Weeks to Success Program. An applicant who scores less than an 11 of the Wonderlic SLE will not be eligible for
admission or to participate in the Six Weeks to Success Program. This program provides skills remediation and an introduction
to postsecondary education designed to prepare the student for entry into a program of study. Applicants accepted into this
program must complete all assignments, including a final group project, and must maintain a 90% attendance rate. The
program is provided at no cost to the student and no credit is earned toward any other program.

Applicants to the following programs must meet ALL entry requirements and are not eligible to participate in the Six Weeks to
Success Program:
    •    Medical Laboratory Assistant
    •    Surgical Technology




                                                                   7
PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS
Physical Questionnaire: All applicants to allied health programs must complete a physical questionnaire documenting
programmatic health requirements. Hepatitis B Vaccination must be completed prior to enrollment in MA121, MA210 and
Clinical Practicum.
Drug Testing: Students may be subject to drug testing. All drug testing will be done in accordance with applicable law.
Contracted externship/practicum sites may require a drug test. Students who refuse to consent and/or submit to a drug test
requested by the College and/or extern site, or who test positive, may be unable to continue in their academic program, or
qualify for programmatic employment.
Background Checks: Students applying for admission will be required to have a background check. The background check
process is an automated process that identifies any enrolling and re-enrolling students that, per policy, may not be eligible for
enrollment due to that student’s criminal record. Eligibility will vary by program, based on standard hiring practices in specific
career fields; however, violent criminal convictions bar enrollment in any program. The background check is completed by a
third party. This third-party organization may contact a student or prospective student in the event that further information is
required to determine eligibility. If a prospective student is found to be ineligible for enrollment based on a history of criminal
activity, the third-party will contact the prospective student. Any questions regarding specific findings should be addressed to
the third-party. Miller-Motte College will not have specific information about the prospective student’s history, but will be
informed by the third party that the prospective student is or is not eligible for enrollment in the specific program the student has
selected. All students are required to disclose to Miller-Motte College any criminal convictions they receive while enrolled in any
Miller-Motte College program. Depending on the nature of that conviction, students may be dismissed from the program.


ASSESSMENTS
Placement Testing: Placement testing for all new students is accomplished prior to the beginning of a student's first term.
Placement testing is mandatory for all new students, but may be waived at the discretion of the Director of Education for students
who have an earned associate or higher degree.
Foundations Classes: Through the school’s entrance testing and evaluation program, some applicants with below-average
scores will be required to enroll in foundations courses to review the fundamentals of English and/or mathematics. Foundations
classes are offered at regular tuition rates to new or transfer students. Foundations classes are in addition to the course
requirements for any program and, in some cases, will extend a student’s program beyond the average completion time.
Foundations courses are awarded “S” (satisfactory) and “U” (Unsatisfactory) grades that do not affect the student’s grade point
average and do not fulfill program graduation requirements.
Students who can provide official documentation of earned college-level credits in English Composition and/or College
Mathematics from another institution of higher learning are exempt from taking that applicable portion of the skills assessment.


TRANSFER STUDENTS
Miller-Motte welcomes applications from students desiring to enter or transfer from other colleges. During their first term at Miller-
Motte College, applicants must submit transcripts from all postsecondary schools attended. An applicant for admission with
advanced standing may be granted transfer credit for courses taken at other colleges that are parallel to courses offered at Miller-
Motte College. All transfers must be completed by the end of the first term of attendance at Miller-Motte. See also Advanced
Standing by Transfer Credit in this catalog.


PHYSICALLY CHALLENGED APPLICANTS
Physically challenged applicants should discuss individual needs with the Admissions office prior to enrollment so that special
arrangements can be made, where appropriate.


APPLICATION FOR INDIVIDUAL SUBJECTS AND SPECIAL PROGRAMS
An application may be submitted for an individual subject by meeting with an Admissions Representative who will provide the
class hours and the days or evenings on which the class meets as well as any prerequisites necessary for particular subjects.
Tuition charges for such courses or programs are based on the total number of credit hours scheduled.


RE-ADMISSION
Students who have withdrawn from the College in good academic standing and wish to be re-admitted should contact the
Admissions Office to update their application. If the application for re-admission is for a different curriculum, the standard
requirements for change of program will apply. Students applying for re-admission will be assessed a $25.00 processing fee.
Students who have withdrawn while on academic probation or who have been suspended for academic deficiencies must reapply
through the Admissions Office and submit the required application for re-admission.
All applications for re-admission must be reviewed and approved by the Academic Review Committee. This review includes an
assessment of the applicant's ability and aptitude; the time elapsed since withdrawing, and the applicant's career objectives.
Applicants may be required to appear in person before the Committee. Students granted re-admission might have course load
restrictions, specific grade and attendance requirements, and/or required advising sessions in order to remain enrolled in the
College.

                                                                  8
ADVANCED STANDING
Previous educational experiences are recognized through examinations of skill and subject matter and/or evaluation of
transcripts. This may result in a change of program completion times. No more than 50 percent of the total quarter hours of
credit, including 50 percent of the total required hours in the major study area, may be credited by advanced standing. No
transfer credits will be allowed for courses designated as foundations. Transfer of credit for English and/or mathematics classes
must be substantiated by placement test scores. All transfer, standardized testing, and proficiency testing must be completed
prior to the end of the first term of attendance.

Advanced Standing by Transfer Credit: Credits earned at another accredited postsecondary institution will be assessed to
determine which credits, if any, are applicable to the program in which the student is enrolling. The student must have earned a
grade of “C” or better and an official transcript must be received from the previously attended institution. The course(s) must be
comparable in level and content to subjects in the student’s program at the College. Credits earned seven or more years prior
to enrollment will be evaluated on a course by course basis. Skills classes in which technology may have changed significantly
in a short period of time may require additional testing as part of the credit evaluation. Classes taken at institutions operating on
a quarter system will be evaluated as direct equivalent credits. Those transferred from institutions operating on a semester
basis are multiplied by one and one-half to convert them to quarter credit hours. Fractional portions will be dropped. All
transfers must be completed by the end of the first term of attendance.

Advanced Standing by Proficiency Testing: Students who have acquired skills, knowledge and mastery of a particular
subject via work experience, study, or personal attainment are able to pursue these subjects at their proficiency levels by
demonstrating proficiency in that subject through examination. The tests are the equivalent of a comprehensive final
examination in a subject area and a grade equivalent of “B” is required. Any proficiency test may be taken only one time, must
be for a course required in the student’s program, and must be taken prior to enrollment in the related course. An Advanced
Placement Testing Fee must be paid for each test taken. Should proficiency be achieved, course credit will be granted for the
curriculum requirement and a grade of “P” will be posted to the student’s academic record. All proficiency examinations must be
completed prior to the end of the first term of attendance.

Military/Veterans Previous Training:Previous education and training will be evaluated and appropriate credit awarded
based on an evaluation of AARTS Transcripts, the Community College of the Air Force Transcripts, or DD FORM 2586. All
criteria for advanced standing stated above will be applied where appropriate. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that all
official transcripts and records are received by the College. In the event the College is unable to obtain an official academic
transcript, it is the student’s responsibility to contact the VA or military agency of sponsorship to determine whether or not the
missing document constitutes a reduction or cessation of military/veteran benefits.

Credit for Military Training and Experience: Miller-Motte College recognizes and uses ACE Guide to the Evaluation of
Educational Experiences in the Armed Services in evaluating and awarding academic credit for military training and experience:

         a. Army/ACE Registry Transcript System (AARTS). The AARTS is a computerized transcript system that produces
         transcripts for eligible Soldiers and Veterans upon request by combining a Soldier's/Veteran’s military education,
         training and experience with descriptions and credit recommendations developed by the American Council on
         Education (ACE).

         b. Sailor/Marine/ACE Registry Transcript (SMART). Marine Corps and Navy Personnel have an official document
         certifying military training and education for recommended college credit called the Sailor/Marine American Council on
         Education Registry Transcript (SMART). SMART is an official transcript endorsing and recommending college credit for
         military education and training and recognized by the American Council on Education (ACE). The Marine Corps and
         the Navy have developed SMART jointly.

         c. Community College of the Air Force (CCAF). Is a federally-chartered degree-granting institution that serves the
         United States Air Force’s enlisted total force. All enlisted personnel are automatically enrolled in CCAF and credits
         earned through the military and through civilian education are added to their degree plan.

Credit for Nationally-Recognized Testing Programs: Miller-Motte College awards credit for at least one nationally-recognized
testing program such as College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) General and Subject Examinations, (DANTES Subject
Standardized Tests (DSST), Excelsior College Examinations (ECE).

In all cases of transfer of credit, Miller-Motte College will attempt to avoid excessive loss of previously earned credit and avoid
course work duplication.

FACTS FOR VETERANS
Many programs at Miller-Motte College are approved for the training of veterans, children of veterans, widows, and wives of
disabled veterans, and war orphans in accordance with the rules and regulations of the United States Veterans Administration.
Applicants should check with the Veterans Administration regarding their eligibility and entitlement for Veterans Educational
Benefits. The forms required to apply for benefits should be obtained from your Veterans Administration officer and should be
completed and submitted to the College as far in advance of enrollment as possible.




                                                                 9
TRANSFERABILITY OF CREDITS TO OTHER COLLEGES
Miller-Motte College is an accredited institution that is designed to provide the student with vocational career training and is not
designed to prepare the student for transfer to other institutions. Acceptance of credits earned at Miller-Motte College is
determined solely by the receiving institution. Students wishing to transfer credits should first consult with the Registrar at those
institutions concerning acceptance. Accreditation alone does not guarantee credit transfer. The College cannot and does not
guarantee credit transfer.


DISCLOSURE OF WRITTEN ARRANGEMENTS BETWEEN COMMONLY-OWNED INSTITUTIONS
A portion of the programs offered by this institution are available to be taken on-line. This institution has a written arrangement
with Miller-Motte Technical College, Wilmington, NC, another Delta Career Education Corporation school, to provide such on-
line instruction through its on-line division. Such written arrangements provide educational flexibility for students and allow them
access to resources and opportunities that may not be available on campus.

As required by Sections 668.5 and 668.43 of the regulations under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended,
the portion of a student's program that can be provided through such an arrangement must be less than 50% of the program.
Therefore more than 50 percent of the educational program must be taken on campus. The actual percentage of the program
offered on-line will depend on the program selected and the student's choice of educational delivery for each course, if
applicable. Any additional costs associated with taking classes on line are listed in the college catalog.




                                                                 10
3. FINANCIAL INFORMATION

TUITION
A student’s total tuition for a given quarter is determined by multiplying the number of credit hours for which the student is
registered at the end of the drop/add period by the tuition rate in effect at the time the student enrolled in school. Tuition is due
in full at Registration. All payment arrangements must be discussed with the Business Office prior to Registration.
The base tuition rate is $264 per credit hour per term (Except for the Phlebotomy Certificate, see below).

GUARANTEED TUITION PLAN
Students in continuous enrollment will be guaranteed the Tuition rate and Program Fee rate in effect at the time of their initial
class start date for the remainder of their programs. Students who leave school for any reason and later return will re-enter at
the then current Tuition rate and Program Fee rate and catalog. This guarantee does not apply to other school fees or to books
and supplies.

PROGRAM FEES
Program fees represent an adjustment to the basic tuition and reflect the cost of the specialized facilities, equipment, materials,
instruction, or other circumstances required to offer a program. Program fees are assessed each term to students enrolled in
certain programs as an additional charge based on enrollment status and are payable in full at Registration.

Effective April 25, 2011, the school no longer charges an application fee but charges a registration fee of $40. This fee, as with
all other tuition and fee charges, may be paid at any time between the time the applicant is accepted for admission and the first
day of classes, unless other arrangements for payment have been made with the business office.

Students re-enrolling at Miller-Motte College will pay the $40.00 registration fee that applies to all enrolling students. This fee,
as with all other tuition and fee charges, may be paid at any time between the time the applicant is accepted for admission and
the first day of classes, unless other arrangements for payment have been made with the business office.

Discounted Tuition. Miller-Motte College offers a 10% tuition discount for all active duty, guard, and reservists
utilizing military tuition assistance.

PAYMENT PLANS
Tuition, fees, and book/supply charges are due and payable in full at registration. All payment arrangements must be discussed
with the Business Office prior to Registration.
Arrangements may be made for students to pay the portion of charges not met by financial aid, scholarships, or other sources on a
monthly installment basis. Terms of payment generally include three installments that are due as follows: one-third at registration,
one-third on the first class day of the quarter, and one-third on the first class day of the mid-quarter. No interest is charged if
payments are made as agreed. Late payment fees will apply. Students who apply and are approved for installment payment plans
must be enrolled in at least a half-time basis and remain in good academic standing.
Students who qualify for state or federal financial assistance programs are able to use certain loan and grant funds to meet their
financial obligation to the school even though the aid may not yet have been disbursed to them or credited to their accounts.
Students expecting to use loan and grant funds must realize that it is their responsibility to provide all information and
documentation necessary to obtain all forms of financial aid by the deadlines imposed by the school and the funding sources.
Failure to do so may result in the student being required to provide immediate payment of all applicable charges.
Working students who are eligible for company-sponsored tuition reimbursement should advise the Business Office.

PAST DUE ACCOUNTS
The student is obligated for tuition, books, and program and other fees for one term at a time. Any student who is delinquent in
payments due to the school is subject to exclusion from school privileges including, but not limited to, continuing enrollment, receiving
grade reports, awarding of course credit, issuing of transcripts, being graduated, and using career placement services. Student’s
accounts that are over ninety (90) days old may be referred to collection at the discretion of the school.


BOOKS & SUPPLIES
Books and supplies are available for purchase at the campus Bookstore and are in addition to tuition and fees. Costs will vary
by program and are estimated at $350 to $600 per term.
Bookstore charges are due in full when items are obtained from the Bookstore. Textbooks and supplies purchased by the
student become the property of the student.
The Bookstore is offered as a convenient service to students. Students are not required to purchase their books or supplies at
the Bookstore or from the school.

SCHOLARSHIPS AND AWARDS
Students may apply for scholarships and/or awards that they have obtained from other sources to help meet the tuition and fee
requirements of the College. Miller-Motte College does not offer merit awards, leadership awards, or scholarships.

                                                                   11
REFUND POLICIES
Appropriate refunds are made no later than thirty (30) days after the College becomes aware of a student’s withdrawal or
termination. Refunds are calculated based upon the student’s last recorded date of attendance. When a refund creates a credit
balance to the student’s account, the refund is made to the following sources in this order: Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loan;
Subsidized Federal Stafford Loan; Federal PLUS Loan; Unsubsidized Federal Direct Loan; Subsidized Federal Direct Loan;
Federal Direct PLUS Loan; Federal Pell Grant; FSEOG; other Title IV aid programs; other federal, state, private, or institutional
aid; the student. Unless the student is subject to the Return of Title IV Refund Policy, any cash payments scheduled to be made
by the student cannot be mitigated by any refunds made to the student’s account. The student’s scheduled cash payments
remain the same and the refund is returned to the Title IV programs in the order listed above.

NO-SHOW STUDENTS
All tuition paid to the institution by a student who does not attend classes for which he/she registered will be refunded. The
registration fee may be retained. Students who obtain books at the Bookstore and then no-show the classes are responsible for
book charges incurred unless the books are returned in “like-new” condition by the end of the first week of classes.

WITHDRAWAL FROM AN INDIVIDUAL CLASS OR CLASSES
Students who attend a class or classes and then withdraw from a class or classes while remaining enrolled in another class or
classes will be charged the tuition amount due according to the North Carolina State refund policy. If the withdrawal from a class
or classes poses a credit balance for the student, the funds will be returned in the same order as stated under the Refund
Policy. The funds will only be returned to the student if no other financial aid has been received during that quarter.

WITHDRAWAL FROM ALL CLASSES
Students who are unable to finish a term or payment period due to deployment for active duty military service, whether enlisted,
reserve, or National Guard, are entitled to a refund of all tuition and fees for the unfinished term or payment period. Credit will
not be granted for unfinished courses, and the unfinished courses will not impact the student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress.
If the military student is deployed at the end of a term or payment period and completes his or her courses prior to deployment,
then the tuition will not be refunded, the credits will be earned, and the student’s Satisfactory Academic Progress will reflect the
inclusion of those credits. Such a student will be released from his or her financial obligations for future terms or payment
periods. Deployed students who choose to return to school following completion of the deployment can re-apply as returning
students.

If the military student is enrolled in a non-term program that will allow him or her to withdraw and re-enter at the same point, the
student may request a leave of absence, which will be granted provided that the school is able to ensure that the student will be
able to return to the program at exactly the point at which he or she withdrew.

In all cases, the military student must provide evidence, such as a copy of official orders, and/or a letter from a superior, to
document the activation and/or deployment. Military students are also encouraged to consider taking courses on-line whenever
possible during deployments, so that they can continue to progress toward completion of their programs.

State Refund Policy-
The state refund policy shall apply for all students enrolled in degree, diploma, or certificate programs. The Miller-Motte College
– Cary campus is mandated to refund tuition under the regulations set forth by the North Carolina State Board of Community
Colleges (23 NCAC 2d.0202e) (1)-(3), which states that a refund shall not be made except under the following circumstances:

A 100% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws prior to the first day of class or classes of the period charged, as
noted in the college calendar, or if the college cancels a class or classes due to insufficient enrollment.

A 75% refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws from the class or classes prior to or on the official 25% point of
the period charged.

No refund shall be made if the student officially withdraws after completing 25% or more of the period charged.

To comply with applicable federal regulations regarding refunds, federal regulations will supersede the state refund regulations
stated in this rule. (See Return of Title IV).

Where a student, having paid the required tuition for a term or payment period, dies during that period of enrollment (prior to or
on the last day of examinations of the College the student was attending), all tuition and fees for that quarter may be refunded to
the estate of the decreased.
The refund policy is set by the North Carolina State Board of Community Colleges and is subject to change without notice.

Students desiring a tuition refund are asked to follow the steps listed below.
 Conta ct the Dire ctor of Educa tion or Re gis tra r to obta in the a ppropria te withdra wa l form .
 Com ple te the withdra wa l form .
 S ubm it the com ple te d withdra wa l form to the Dire ctor of Educa tion or Re gis tra r.
 S ubm it the a pplica tion for re fund to the Bus ine s s Ma na ge r.

The student withdrawing from individual class or classes must complete this procedure prior to the 10% point of the quarter in
order to be eligible for a refund.
                                                                       12
RETURN OF TITLE IV REFUND POLICY
The Financial Aid Office is required by federal statute to recalculate federal financial aid eligibility for students who withdraw,
drop out, are dismissed, or take a leave of absence prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term. The federal Title IV
financial aid programs must be recalculated in these situations.
If a student leaves the institution prior to completing 60% of a payment period or term, the financial aid office recalculates
eligibility for Title IV funds. Recalculation is based on the percentage of earned aid using the following Federal Return of Title IV
funds formula:
Percentage of payment period or term completed = the number of days completed up to the withdrawal date divided by the total
days in the payment period or term. (Any break of five days or more is not counted as part of the days in the term.) This
percentage is also the percentage of earned aid.
Funds are returned to the appropriate federal program based on the percentage of unearned aid using the following formula:
Aid to be returned = (100% of the aid that could be disbursed minus the percentage of earned aid) multiplied by the total amount
of aid that could have been disbursed during the payment period or term.
If a student earned less aid than was disbursed, the institution would be required to return a portion of the funds and the student
would be required to return a portion of the funds. Keep in mind that when Title IV funds are returned, the student borrower may
owe a debit balance to the institution.
If a student earned more aid than was disbursed to him/her, the institution would owe the student a post-withdrawal
disbursement which must be paid within 120 days of the student's withdrawal.
The institution must return the amount of Title IV funds for which it is responsible no later than 30 days after the date of the
determination of the date of the student’s withdrawal. \
Refunds are allocated in the following order:
Unsubsidized Federal Stafford Loans
Subsidized Federal Stafford Loans
Unsubsidized Direct Stafford Loans (other than PLUS loans)
Subsidized Direct Stafford Loans
Federal Perkins Loans
Federal Parent (PLUS) Loans
Direct PLUS Loans
Federal Pell Grants for which a Return of funds is required
Federal Supplemental Opportunity Grants for which a Return of funds is required
Other assistance under this Title for which a Return of funds is required (e.g., LEAP)
Repeated Coursework Used in Enrollment Status
Beginning with the 2011-2012 award year, a student’s enrollment status in a term-based program for Title IV purposes may
include coursework being repeated that was previously taken in the program, but may not include more than one repetition of a
specific previously passed course.

Definition of a Withdrawal for Return to Title IV Purposes
For purposes of calculating Return to Title IV, a student is considered to have withdrawn from a payment period or period of
enrollment if—
    (A) In the case of a program that is measured in credit hours, the student does not complete all the days in the payment
         period or period of enrollment that the student was scheduled to complete;
    (B) In the case of a program that is measured in clock hours, the student does not complete all of the clock hours and
         weeks of instructional time in the payment period or period of enrollment that the student was scheduled to complete;
         or
    (C) For a student in a non-term or nonstandard-term program, the student is not scheduled to begin another course within
         a payment period or period of enrollment for more than 45 calendar days after the end of the module the student
         ceased attending.

Return to Title IV and Recording Attendance
For purposes of calculating Return to Title IV, because this institution voluntarily records attendance in all programs and classes,
the school is determined to be a school that is required to take attendance, and as such, uses the student’s last recorded day of
attendance in determining the percentage of Title IV aid earned for the payment period or period of enrollment.

Book Provision for Federal Pell Grant Eligible Students
Effective July 1, 2011, Section 668.164(i) of the regulations under Title IV of the Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended,
requires that a school provide a way for a Federal Pell Grant eligible student to obtain or purchase required books and supplies
by the seventh day of a payment period under certain conditions if the student were to have a Title IV credit balance. To satisfy
that requirement, this institution provides required books and supplies to students through its bookstore.

A student may choose to opt out of this method and obtain books and supplies on their own. To do so you will need to notify the
Business Office prior to the start of the term.




                                                                        13
FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

All students are encouraged to meet with a Financial Aid Officer in order to determine financial aid qualifications. The Financial
Aid Office of Miller-Motte College administers federal financial aid and assists students receiving benefits such as those offered
through Vocational Rehabilitation, the Workforce Investment Act, and other agencies. The office assists those students with
calculated financial need, as determined by the U.S. Department of Education. The operation of the office is based upon the
Department of Education's concept of "needs analysis," which expects a student and his/her family to meet educational expenses
as completely as possible. All students applying for financial aid are asked (and may be required) to submit copies of appropriate
federal income tax returns to comply with federal verification requirements. Students classified by the Department of Education as
"dependent" must also submit copies of their parents' federal income tax returns.
To apply for financial aid, a student must complete the Application for Financial Aid and an Application for Federal Student Aid and
submit these forms (along with appropriate federal income tax returns) to the Financial Aid Office. An appointment is arranged at
which time the student is informed of the types and amounts of financial aid for which he/she qualifies.


FINANCIAL AID ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS
Student financial aid applicants must satisfy certain requirements in order to be able to receive and continue to use financial aid.
These requirements include, but are not limited to:
    •    fulfillment of all admission requirements;
    •    submission of all documentation requested by the College or lender(s) or both;
    •    regular, verifiable attendance and not being in danger of being dropped;
    •    satisfactory academic progress in accordance with College policy;
    •    completion of "aid specific" requirements, such as entrance loan counseling;
    •    remain a student in good standing.

In addition, graduating students who received student loans must attend exit loan counseling sessions and meet all other
graduation requirements before they will be considered a graduate and awarded a credential. Withdrawing students who used any
loans must participate in exit counseling.


RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES OF FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE RECIPIENTS
As a recipient of federal assistance, each student has certain rights and responsibilities. A full understanding of these will place
the student in a better position to make decisions about his/her educational goals and how such goals may best be achieved. If
at any time a student has questions about financial assistance, he/she should go to the Financial Aid Director for more
information.
The student has a right to know:
    •    the total “cost of attendance” for Miller-Motte College for an academic year, including tuition, fees and estimated costs
         of personal expenses and books.
    •    the due dates for mandatory fees and the payment procedures for those receiving financial assistance.
    •    the deadline for submitting applications.
    •    how financial need is determined.
    •    how much of his/her estimated financial need has been met.
    •    the types and terms of financial assistance offered the College.
    •    the method the College uses to determine satisfactory academic progress.
    •    the College refund policy for students who withdraw.
The student is responsible:
    •    to submit honest and accurate information concerning enrollment and family financial circumstances.
    •    to adhere to all agreements signed in the course of applying for and receiving financial assistance.
    •    to report changes to less than full-time enrollment during the award period.
    •    to promptly report to the College any receipts of scholarships, grants or loans awarded by organizations or agencies
         other than the College, as well as the reporting of any employment off-campus.
    •    to become familiar with the deadlines for application, the terms of financial assistance received and refund policies for
         students who withdraw.
    •    if transferring, to request that all previous college(s) either send a Financial Aid Transcript to the College or update the
         National Student Loan Data Service with FAT information. If the Financial Aid Transcript is not sent, it will interfere with
         receiving federal financial assistance.




                                                                 14
GRANT PROGRAMS
There are several grant programs available. Grants are not repaid.

The Federal Pell Grant Program provides federal grants to students who show calculated financial need. A student’s Federal
Pell Grant will vary depending upon his/her enrollment status (i.e., full-time, half-time, etc.). The Federal Pell Grant is considered
to be the “floor” of the financial aid package and may be combined with other forms of financial aid. To qualify, a student must be
a United States citizen or eligible non-citizen and must not have previously earned a Bachelor’s Degree from any institution.

The Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grant (FSEOG) provides federal grants to students who show an
exceptional calculated financial need. Federal Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants are awarded first to Pell-eligible
students with the lowest calculated family contribution that may be made toward the student’s education.

The Academic Competitiveness Grant is a grant available for first year students who graduated from high school after
January 1, 2006, and for second year students who graduated from high school after January 1, 2005. An Academic
Competitiveness Grant will provide up to $750 for the first year of undergraduate study and up to $1,300 for the second year of
undergraduate study to full-time students who are eligible for a Federal Pell Grant and who had successfully completed a
rigorous high school program.


LOAN PROGRAMS
There are several loan programs available. Loans must be repaid.

William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan (Direct Loan) Program
Loans made through this program are referred to as Direct Loans because eligible students and parents borrow directly from the
U. S. Department of Education at participating schools. A student must be enrolled as at least a half-time student to be eligible
for a loan. Direct Loans include the following:

Direct Subsidized Stafford Loans
The student must have financial need to receive a subsidized loan. The U. S. Department of Education will pay (subsidize) the
interest that accrues on your Direct Subsidized Loan during certain periods. If the first disbursement of the subsidized loan is
between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011, the interest rate on the loan is fixed at 4.5%. The interest rate on subsidized loans first
disbursed to undergraduate students between July 1, 2011 and June 30, 2012 will be fixed at 3.4%. This rate may change each
year on July 1. First-year dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to $3500; second-year dependent undergraduate
students may borrow up to $4500 and third-year dependent undergraduate students may borrow up to $5500.

Direct Unsubsidized Stafford Loans
Financial need is not a requirement to obtain an unsubsidized loan. The student is responsible for paying the interest that
accrues on the Direct Unsubsidized Loan. Interest is currently fixed at 6.8%. This rate may change each year on July 1.
Independent students (and dependent students whose parents are unable to obtain PLUS loans) may borrow up to an additional
$4000 for first and second year loans and an additional $5000 for third year loans. Also, all dependent undergraduate students
may borrow up to an additional $2000 of Direct Unsubsidized loans.

Direct PLUS Loan
This loan allows parents to borrow to assist their dependent undergraduate children in paying educational expenses. Interest is
currently fixed at 7.9%. This rate may change each year on July 1. Payments on both principal and interest begin when the loan
is disbursed. Parents may borrow up to the cost of the student’s attendance, less any other financial aid received. Federal PLUS
loans are subject to credit check.


FEDERAL WORK STUDY PROGRAM
The Federal Work-Study Program (FWSP) enables students to earn money for their educational expenses by working in part-
time positions. Federal Work-Study students may work only in positions related to their major. Applications may be obtained
from the receptionist, but must be submitted to the Director of Financial Aid. Students holding a Bachelor’s Degree are eligible to
participate in the FWSP Program. Applicants may be required to go through an interview process.


SCHOLARSHIPS
Miller-Motte College currently offers two different scholarships available to high school seniors who wish to pursue
postsecondary education with the College. Miller-Motte College Cary Campus offers one-half tuition scholarships each high
school year to eligible high school seniors. The process involved in applying for this award is as follows (1) the current high
school senior expresses an interest in participating through his/her guidance counselor who schedules a test for the individual at
Miller-Motte College, (2) the high school senior takes a scheduled exam at the college, (3) the top 10 finalists are selected
according to the highest test scores, (4) finalists are interviewed by a panel of third party judges consisting of business
community members, and (5) winners are selected based on individual interview results. Miller-Motte College Wilmington
Campus also participates in the Imagine America scholarship program. Imagine America Scholarships are $1,000 scholarships
awarded to recent high school graduates to use at a participating postsecondary career college. Area High Schools can award

                                                                 15
three of these scholarships per year based on criteria met (as outlined on Imagine America Web-site). MMC High School
Admissions Representatives, MMC High School Presenters, and/or High School Guidance Counselors can refer students to the
Imagine America Website for information on how to apply.

VOCATIONAL REHABILIATION
A student with a physical or mental disability which may be a handicap to employment may be eligible for training services
provided through the state government agency for Vocational Rehabilitation. Students desiring additional information should
contact the Admissions Office or call Vocational Rehabilitation directly.


SATISFACTORY PROGRESS FOR CONTINUATION OF FINANCIAL AID
Federal regulations require that students receiving financial aid must satisfactorily progress toward completion of the appropriate
degree, diploma or certificate. In addition, institutions must establish a maximum time-frame within which the student must
complete his/her educational objective. The progress of financial aid recipients is evaluated according to (1) a periodic review of
academic standing and (2) a periodic review of credit hours earned. See Standards of Satisfactory Progress.




                                                                16
4 – STUDENT SERVICES AND REGULATIONS
STUDENT DEVELOPMENT
Student development is an ongoing focus at Miller-Motte College. Academic, occupational, and personal development is
encouraged for all students. This emphasis is supported during the student’s entire program of study by both academic and
student services personnel.


CAREER DEVELOPMENT
The primary purpose of career development is to help Miller-Motte College graduates obtain employment in their areas of
specialization. Satisfactory completion of program course work by the student is the first step in the employment process. The
Career Services Office provides specific training in various job-seeking skills through required coursework, optional training
sessions, graduation seminars, and individual counseling. The Director of Career Services works with each student prior to
graduation to determine areas of employment interest and to explore placement options. Candidates for graduation are required
to complete a placement information packet designed to assist the Director of Career Services in matching graduates with
appropriate career opportunities. Students are notified of appropriate employment opportunities as they arise, and career
services are available to all Miller-Motte College graduates. Although it is impossible to guarantee each graduate a job, the
Career Services Office works to provide job leads and to assist the student in appropriate interviews. Experience indicates that
Miller-Motte College graduates are welcomed by local businesses and industry.

ADVISING SERVICES
Advising services are available to assist students in resolving educational, career, and vocational problems. General personal
concerns relating directly to academic success can be addressed on campus whereas more serious concerns will be referred to
the appropriate outside agency. The Director of Education, Business Manager, Registrar, and Department Chairs can help
students plan their educational programs as well as adjust to the demands of college-level studies.


ORIENTATION
The College provides a student orientation program each quarter for all new students. The program acquaints new students with
the faculty, administrators, and academic life of the College. An agenda is designed that provides the opportunity for counseling
on academic matters, registering of the student, and answering questions. All new students are required to participate in the
orientation program.


TUTORIAL ASSISTANCE
The College provides assistance for students experiencing academic difficulties. Faculty will make every effort to identify
students in need of assistance. Students are urged to take the initiative in seeking out-of-class help and to discuss their

be based on mutual respect and responsibility. In addition, when a student enrolls at Miller-Motte College, s/he agrees to abide
by all School regulations. Therefore, violations of any section of the Code of Conduct will result in appropriate disciplinary action.

The complete Student Code of Conduct and the due process associated with infractions of the code of conduct are available
from the office of the Director of Education.


PROFESSIONAL CONDUCT AND DRESS CODE
When applying for admission, students agree to conduct themselves within the limits of acceptable behavior and appearance
that will enable the College to recommend the graduate to prospective employers as a courteous, considerate, and well-
mannered individual. Students are expected to be neat, clean, and dressed consistently with the type of apparel that would be

result.

HONOR CODE
Classes and activities at Miller-Motte College are conducted under the assumption that, as responsible individuals, students will
adhere to the accepted educational and social standards forbidding plagiarism, cheating, dishonesty, theft, defacement of
property, and drug and alcohol abuse. Individuals found to be in violation of these standards are subject to disciplinary actions
that may include immediate suspension from the College.

ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT POLICY
Students may be disciplined for acts of academic misconduct. These include, but are not limited to: cheating and plagiarism.

Cheating is defined as obtaining or attempting to obtain a better assessment or grade by any dishonest or deceptive means. It
also includes aiding another to obtain credit for work or a better assessment or grade by any dishonest or deceptive means.
Cheating includes, but is not limited to: lying; copying from another's test or examination; allowing another to copy from one’s
test or examination; use of an assignment submitted in another class without the knowledge/permission of the current class
instructor; discussion of answers or questions on an examination or test, unless such discussion is specifically authorized by the
instructor; taking or receiving copies of an exam without the permission of the instructor; using or displaying notes, "cheat
sheets," or other information devices without the consent of the instructor; allowing someone other than the officially enrolled
student to provide work or answers on any assignment.

Plagiarism is a form of cheating and is defined as presenting someone else's work, including the work of other students, as
one's own. Any ideas or materials taken from another source for either written or oral use must be fully acknowledged, unless
the information is common knowledge. What is considered "common knowledge" may differ from course to course. A student
must not adopt or reproduce ideas, opinions, words, theories, formulas, graphics, or pictures of another person without
acknowledgment. A student must give credit to the originality of others and acknowledge whenever:
Directly quoting another person's actual words, whether oral or written;
Using another person's ideas, opinions, or theories;
Paraphrasing the words, ideas, opinions, or theories of others, whether oral or written;
Borrowing facts, statistics, or illustrative material; or
Offering materials assembled or collected by others in the form of projects or collections.

Students who are accused of academic dishonesty have the right to due process. The full policy and procedure is available from
the office of the Director of Education.

                                                                    19
DISCIPLINARY PROBLEMS
Instructors are not expected to jeopardize the progress of a class by permitting the continued presence of any student whose
behavior in any way could adversely affect the class. While the responsibility for the administration of classroom discipline rests
with the instructor, the College will handle any disciplinary problems that are referred. This includes cheating, disruptive
behavior, and any other actions that are not considered proper conduct for a student. It also includes the observing of
inappropriate actions of students on campus while not in the classroom. Penalties administered for such actions may include
severe reprimand, disciplinary probation, or suspension, which may or may not be recorded in the student’s permanent record.

DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES
Alleged violation of student regulations or other student misconduct shall be referred to the Director of Education. In all cases in
which disciplinary suspension or dismissal could result, the student will be notified by mail of the nature of the charges and
grounds against him/her and the time and date of the hearing. The notice shall also inform the student of his/her right to appear
at the hearings, to face the accuser(s), and to present applicable evidence on his/her behalf. The Director of Education,
following a thorough hearing of the case, shall make a final determination in accordance with one of the following actions:
    1)   Dismissal from the College;
    2)   Disciplinary suspension for a specified period of time;
    3)   Disciplinary probation, which may or may not be recorded on the student’s permanent record;
    4)   Administrative reprimand; and
    5)   Removal of the charges against the student.
Decisions of the Director of Education may be appealed to the Campus Director. In all cases in which disciplinary suspension or
dismissal from the College has been determined, a copy of the proceedings of the hearing shall be sent to the Campus Director.

SUSPENSION/DISMISSAL FROM THE COLLEGE
All students are expected to maintain a satisfactory level of academic achievement, to conduct themselves as responsible
adults, and to attend classes regularly. The College reserves the right to suspend or dismiss any student who:
     •   Fails to maintain satisfactory academic progress as outlined in the standards of satisfactory progress;
     •   Exhibits conduct that is found by the administration to be detrimental to the individual, other students, the community,
         or the College; and
     •   Fails to meet agreed upon financial obligations to the College.

SEXUAL HARRASSMENT POLICY
As a student at Miller-Motte College, if you feel you have been sexually harassed by means of inappropriate language, touch or
behavior on the part of another student or member of the Miller-Motte staff, you are encouraged to submit a written and dated
complaint to the administration. An interview will be scheduled at the earliest date possible to explore the complaint and
counseling will be made available. The alleged offender will be contacted and an interview scheduled.
With regard to the Massage Therapy programs, Miller-Motte College takes the position that sexual inappropriateness in many
cases may be a matter of ignorance about social behavior and as such will provide counseling and individual tutoring as a first
course means of action in hopes that an understanding of boundaries in therapeutic contact can be established. Repeated
offenses will result in suspension from the program.


GRADUATION CEREMONY
A formal graduation ceremony is held twice each year during the month of January and July or August. Participants include all
graduates from the preceding two quarters.


Attendance Policy
Miller-Motte College is committed to the principle that class attendance is an essential part of its educational programs and its
goal to prepare all students for the responsibilities of their chosen career fields. Regular class attendance is mandatory in all
classes and attendance is recorded for every regularly scheduled class. All absences, late arrivals, and early departures are
recorded, are counted as class time missed, and become a part of the student’s permanent record. No distinction is made
between excused and unexcused absences. Failure to comply with the attendance policy can result in failure to meet course
competencies, suspension, or dismissal. Externship and clinic courses have their own specific attendance criteria that are
announced at the beginning of the class and may require make-up of all hours missed.

When a student has reached 20 percent absenteeism in any class (except as noted in paragraphs below), his/her course
instructors will evaluate that student’s potential for academic success. If it is determined that the student is unable to pass the
class, he/she may be dropped from the class. If the student is currently passing the class, the student will be counseled on
his/her absenteeism and academic and attendance guidelines will be set for the student to continue in class. The student is
responsible for all material covered daily in each class for which he/she is registered. In no instance does absence from class
relieve the student from the responsibility for the performance of any part of the class work. The student is responsible for
initiating any request to make up work missed because of class absence. The decision as to the specific type of assistance to
give the student with makeup work will be announced at the beginning of the term by the instructor. Makeup of missed classes
does not erase an absence from a student’s record. If a student is absent from all classes for 11 or more calendar days, the
student will be withdrawn from school. If the student has been absent between eleven (11) and sixteen (16) days, the student

                                                                20
may meet with the Director of Education and request reinstatement if there are extreme mitigating circumstances that warrant
the reinstatement. Students who have missed in excess of sixteen (16) calendar days will not be reinstated. There are no leaves
of absence in term-based programs.

Attendance Policy for Provisional Enrollment: If a student is enrolled in a provisional status, the student may not miss more
than 20% of any class or the student will be withdrawn from the class. If the class withdrawal results in the student falling below
a half-time status, the student will not be allowed to continue in school and will be withdrawn from all remaining classes.

Attendance Policy for students enrolled in a fully online program—If a student fails to actively participate in an online class
for a time period of sixteen (16) calendar days, the student will be dropped from the course. Students who are in danger of being
dropped should contact their online instructor to determine if they are able to complete any past due work.

Clock hour programs: Programs that are considered clock hour programs for Title IV purposes, and are identified as such in
this catalog, may have specific attendance requirements. Students are expected to attend all classes and to be in class at the
appropriate times. The licensing boards that govern some of these programs may require that all missed class time be made up
and may impose limits on the number of hours that may be missed and subsequently made up. Make up work is scheduled by
the instructor and attendance is monitored and recorded. Any make up work that is allowed must be completed prior to the end
of the term in which the class is taken. The instructor of each class will notify students of the specific attendance policy at the
beginning of the course. Students who miss classes in clock hour programs may delay the disbursement of their aid as
disbursements are based on the students’ attendance.

Massage Therapy Programs (Make-Up Work): Students are expected to attend all classes and to be in class at the
appropriate time. The Rules and Regulations of the NC Board of Massage & Bodywork Therapy state, “for a student to receive
credit in a course, the school shall require students to attend no less than seventy-five (75%) of the instructional hours, and to
make up all missed instructional hours according to the procedures established by the school.” It may be possible to make up
missed classes by reviewing videos and attending after-school question and answer sessions or by other means at the
discretion of the instructor. If a student is incomplete in any modality, certification will be withheld until it becomes complete. A
student may become complete either by repeating the modality with a later class or by receiving private tutoring from a Miller-
Motte College instructor approved by the lead instructor in that modality. All make-ups must be completed before the end of the
academic quarter.
Esthetics Technology Program (Make-Up Work): Students are expected to attend all classes and to be in class at the
appropriate time. It may be possible to make up missed classes by reviewing videos and attending other classes at the
discretion of the instructor. According to the North Carolina State Board of Cosmetic Art, a student may not receive more than
eight hours per day and 40 hours per week. All make-ups must be completed before the end of the academic quarter.

WITHDRAWAL FROM THE COLLEGE
Students desiring to withdraw from the College or an individual course should contact the Director of Education or Registrar to
obtain the necessary forms and procedures for official withdrawal. Students who withdraw from a course within six weeks from
the date classes begin will receive a grade of “W.” Students withdrawing after mid-term who have maintained passing work will
receive a grade of “WP.” Students withdrawing after mid-term who have not maintained passing work will receive a grade of
“WF” which is computed as a failing grade. “W’s” and “WP’s” are not computed in the student’s GPA. Students who receive
Guaranteed Student Loans must schedule an exit interview with the Financial Aid Officer before they leave school, either by
graduation or withdrawal.

LOSS OF PERSONAL PROPERTY
The College does not assume responsibility for the loss of books or other personal property. However, all instructors and
students are requested to give the Receptionist all articles found so that the owner may claim them.

EXAMINATION OF STUDENT RECORDS
All students attending Miller-Motte College shall have the right to review their academic records, including grades, attendance
records, and/or counseling documentation reports. Records are supervised by the administration and access is afforded to
college officials for the purpose of recording grades, attendance and counseling reports, as well as determining financial aid
eligibility. Students may request a review by writing the administration at the address listed in the catalog. Such review will be
allowed during regular college hours under appropriate supervision. Students may also obtain official copies of their records at a
charge of $5.00 per copy.
Challenging the record for purposes of correcting or deleting any of the contents must be done in writing, delineating the
reasons for correction or deletion. However, grades and course evaluations can be challenged only on the grounds that they are
improperly recorded. The instructor and/or Department Chair involved will review the written challenge and if desirable, meet
with the student and then make a determination to retain, change, or delete the disputed data. Should further review be
requested by the student, the administration will conduct a hearing at which the student shall be afforded a full and fair
opportunity to present evidence relevant to the disputed issues. The student shall be notified of the administration’s decision that
will be considered final. A copy of the challenge and/or written explanation respecting the contents of the student record will be
included as a part of the student’s permanent record.




                                                                 21
ADMINISTRATIVE PREROGATIVES
The College reserves the right, at any time, to make changes as it deems necessary or desirable in its policies and operating
procedures, to modify its tuition rates, to add to or withdraw members from its faculty and staff, to rearrange its courses and
programs as teaching policies render it desirable, and to withdraw or re-sequence subjects, courses, and programs if
registration falls below the required number. Normally a minimum of 10 students is required for a class to be scheduled.

operating procedures, curricula, class schedules, course content, training, equipment, tuition and fees, faculty, and staff
without notice at any time. Students are individually responsible for being aware of information contained in the college
catalog and any amendments thereto. Failure to read and comply with school regulations will not exempt students from
penalties that they may incur. Students are advised to read and fully understand the rules, regulations, and policies stated
herein and to retain this catalog for use as a reference.

STUDENT CLASSIFICATIONS

Full-time Student: a full-time student is a student scheduled for 12 or more credit hours.
Three-quarter time Student: a three-quarter time student is a student scheduled for at least 9 credit hours but less than 12
credit hours.
Half-time Student: a half-time student is a student scheduled for at least 6 but less than 9 credit hours.
Regular Student: a regular student is an admitted student who is enrolled in a degree, diploma or certificate program and is
in good academic standing.
Extended Enrollment Student: An extended enrollment student is a student authorized to continue in a program to improve
his/her academic standing. Extended enrollment students are not eligible for federal or state student aid.

more conditions that are set at the time of enrollment. Examples of conditions include, but are not limited to: receipt of valid
proof of high school graduation or equivalent; receipt of proof that student is not in default or does not currently have student
loan debt in excess of $20,000; a first time student who must be continuously enrolled for the first 28 days of the program; a
first time student who must be in good standing in all of their classes at the end of their provisional enrollment period.
Students who are accepted provisionally are given the condition(s) they must satisfy, in writing, at the time of enrollment.

COLLEGE QUARTER
A college quarter is a time period of 10-12 weeks of instruction or the equivalent thereof, including holidays, but excluding
vacation periods.

DEFINITION OF A QUARTER CREDIT HOUR
The quarter credit hour is a unit by which course work is measured. The number of quarter credit hours assigned to a course
is usually defined by a combination of the number of hours per week in class, the number of hours per week in laboratory,
and/or the number of hours devoted to externship/clinic/practicum times the number of weeks in the term. Ten (10) class
hours with appropriate homework and study equals one lecture credit, twenty (20) laboratory hours with both practice work and
classroom instruction equals one laboratory credit, and thirty (30) externship/clinic/practicum hours equals one externship
credit. A class hour is an instructional period of fifty (50) minutes of instruction in a sixty (60) minute timeframe or the
equivalent thereof.

CLOCK HOUR PROGRAMS
     The following programs (Esthetics Technology, Massage Therapy) are identified as Clock Hour programs by the
     Department of Education. In identification of hours used to calculate the credit hours awarded in completion of the
     courses within this program, the standard Carnegie scale (10 lecture hours = 1 quarter credit hour, 20 lab hours = 1
     quarter credit hour, and 30 externship/clinic/practicum hour = 1 quarter credit hour) shall be used in determination of the
     “Instructional Clock Hours: within the program. For Title IV purposes, the school will use the “Total Clock Hours” identified
     as the Instructional Clock Hours + required supplemental/outside (Study/Prep/Review) hours identified in the class(es).
     For programs which meet the Federal Department of Education’s definition of “clock hour programs” and eligible for clock
     to credit hour conversion, the following will apply: One quarter credit hour will be equivalent to 20 clock hours of
     instruction plus an additional 5 clock hours of assigned outside course work. Specific assignments will be used in
     calculation of the total required hours for each course in determining the credit hours awarded. These outside hours will
     be identified on the course outline and utilized to meet program and course objectives. Work reflected in the out-of-class
     assignments will be incorporated in the overall course grade.




                                                                25
ADMISSION TO CLASSES
Students are admitted to classes only with official written authorization (i.e. schedules, class change notifications, and
attendance change notifications). No visitors (including relatives, spouses, children, friends, and pets) are permitted in classes
at any time. Students are expected to attend all classes beginning with the first class session.

REGISTRATION
All students are expected to register during the time scheduled for that purpose. Quarterly registration dates are published in
the Academic Calendar. The College reserves the right to schedule courses that are deemed appropriate to the best interest
of the student and the College. Course schedules and course loads should be carefully planned by the student in consultation
with his/her advisor or the Registrar. Each student is responsible for being familiar with the requirements of his/her program of
study and for keeping account of progress toward completion of graduation requirements. Class progression requires a grade
of “C” in all classes.. The student is expected to be familiar with the regulations set forth in the College Catalog and Student
Handbook. Copies are available in the administrative offices.
A student who desires to register for course work above the normal course load outlined for the curriculum must obtain written
permission from his/her Program Director who must receive final approval from the Director of Education. A student must
request and receive his/her Program Directors’s approval to take Basic and Core Requirement classes more than two times.

DISTANCE EDUCATION
Students have the opportunity to utilize the latest in instructional technology by taking courses in an on-line format. These
courses are offered both on-ground and on-line as needed. The students must meet the normal course prerequisites to
schedule the class. The online courses utilize the Moodle ® platform, and an orientation is required of each student who
wishes to take advantage of the online method of delivery. Interested students should speak with the Director of Education.

Courses approved for online delivery are identified by the following symbol  which is located next to the course descriptions
found on pages 42-48 of the catalog.

Minimum computer requirements for your online class include:
PC running Windows 98 or greater and a Pentium 700 MHz processor with 512 MB RAM
It is recommended that your PC be running Windows XP (Service Pack 2) and a Celeron 4.0 GHz processor with 1 GB RAM.
You will also need Internet Explorer 7.0 (or greater) or Mozilla Firefox for your internet browser. Additional viewers that may be
necessary include Sun Java Plug-In, Flash Player and Adobe Acrobat Reader which are free. Your Online Learning Specialist
(OLS) can direct you to websites where you can download these required viewers if they are not currently installed.

You will also need a word processing program. Any additional programs that are necessary will be posted on the course
website and communicated by your OLS. Application classes require that students have the version on which the class is
based. Application software is not available for purchase within the online class. Students are free to use the school’s
computers in the library. Students may also use the computers in the computer classrooms when they are available or by
arrangement with the classroom instructor.


LIBRARY/RESOURCE CENTER
The College maintains a library of curriculum-related resources and leisure materials for use by all students. Because the
curricula offered by the College generally represent rapidly-changing technologies and sciences and because the learning
objectives of these curricula are not achieved principally through historical research, the library holdings at Miller-Motte
College are concentrated in current reference and periodical materials. However, in support of the general education offerings
of the College, the library does provide appropriate general reference and historical books in addition to various periodicals in
the disciplines. The College has also joined the Jones-E-global Library, which offers supplemental government documents
and electronic databases.
Audiovisual resources to assist in the teaching/learning process are managed by the Librarian. Equipment includes overhead
projectors, tape recorders, and VCRs. The Librarian provides students and staff with advisory and demonstration services for
these materials.




                                                                26
STANDARDS OF SATISFACTORY ACADEMIC PROGRESS (SAP)
(For term-based, non-term credit hour, and clock hour programs)

A student must meet the following standards of academic achievement and successful course completion while enrolled at
Miller-Motte College. SAP applies to all students, full or part time status, and periods of enrollment regardless of whether or
not the student receives financial aid. Student enrollment status is determined at the end of the drop/add period for any given
term or module. All courses in a program must be successfully completed with a minimum cumulative grade point average of
2.0 in order for a student to graduate from the program. Permanent records are maintained for every student indicating
courses completed and grades earned. A student is in good standing at the institution when allowed to enroll for the next term
as a regular student during any given enrollment period.

Evaluation Points: All academic SAP reviews begin on the date the student enters the school and are cumulative in nature.
SAP is determined by measuring the student’s cumulative grade point average (CGPA) and the student’s rate of progress
toward completion of course credits or clock hours attempted in the academic program (pace). The calculated CGPA and
pace are compared against thresholds to determine whether or not the student meets SAP (at or above threshold). For credit
hour programs, credits attempted are those credits for which the student is enrolled at the end of the drop/add period of an
academic period. Credits earned are credits for which the student receives a passing grade at the end of the module or term.
For clock hour programs, the clock hours attempted are the clock hours attended for courses in which the student is enrolled
after the drop/add period and for which a grade has been entered. Clock hours earned are the clock hours attended for
courses in which the student is enrolled after the drop/add period and for which a passing grade has been entered. The
student’s progress will be evaluated at the end of each term or module.


SAP is also specifically evaluated following the completion of the each academic year or at 50% of the normal program length
if the program is one academic year or less

                      For programs measured in credit hours (for financial aid purposes), this evaluation point will occur at
                       the end of the term or module corresponding to the period during which the academic year is reached.
                      For programs measured in clock hours (for financial aid purposes), this evaluation point will occur at
                       the end of the term or module where a student has actually attended scheduled classes for an hourly
                       total corresponding to an academic year. Missing scheduled classes may delay the evaluation point
                       beyond the original projection.
                      The required performance thresholds for academic year evaluation points are identical to the thresholds
                       applied for the end of any other term or module period. If a student is currently on an academic plan
                       designed to reestablish SAP and reaches an academic year evaluation point, the academic plan is
                       reviewed to ensure that the student is continuing to meet the plan. The plan may be restructured at that
                       time.

Satisfactory Progress Thresholds: Students must meet the following qualitative and quantitative standards:

         Cumulative grade point average (CGPA) (qualitative standard) = 2.0 or above
                                            2
         Pace (quantitative standard) = 66 / 3 % or above
                                                                                                               2
At the end of any measurement period, if a student’s CGPA is below 2.0 or a student’s pace is below 66 / 3 %, the student’s
academic progress is considered to be unsatisfactory.

Maximum Timeframe/Maximum Program Length: A student must complete an academic program in no more than one and
one-half (1.5) times the published normal program length. A student cannot exceed the Maximum Timeframe and still receive
his or her original credential, unless an appeal is made and upheld as described elsewhere in this section.

To determine the maximum timeframe for programs measured in credit hours (for financial aid purposes), take the published
number of credit hours necessary to graduate and multiply by 1.5. Example:
           96 Published Program Credits
          x 1.5 Maximum Timeframe
           144 Maximum Attempted Credits Permitted to Complete Program

The maximum timeframe for programs measured in clock hours (for financial aid purposes) will vary, depending on a
student’s status as a full-time or part-time student. The maximum timeframe will have both a clock hour limit and a calendar
time limit. For all programs and all enrollment statuses the clock hour limit is 1.5 times the published length of the program in
clock hours. For calendar time limits, the program listing in the catalog will list separate program lengths in weeks for full-time
students and for part-time students. In a clock hour program, a full-time student is a student scheduled for at least 24 clock
hours per week. To determine the maximum timeframe for programs measured in clock hours (for financial aid purposes), take
the appropriate (full-time or part-time) published length of the program in weeks and multiply by 1.5. Fractions of a week
should be rounded up to the next whole week.
Example:


                                                                27
         48 Published Program Length
         x 1.5 Maximum Timeframe
         72 Maximum Weeks permitted to Complete Program Clock Hours

Or,

         1200 Published Clock Hours
          X 1.5 Maximum Timeframe
         1800 Maximum Clock Hours Attempted Permitted to Complete the Program

If, at any time, a student cannot complete his or her program of study within the Maximum Timeframe, he or she is
immediately considered mathematically unable to continue and will be dismissed from his or her program of study. This action
may be appealed by following the appeal procedure outlined elsewhere in this section.

Foundations Courses: When an entering student’s assessments indicate the need for any foundations courses (English
Language Foundations Courses (ELF), English, Mathematics), those courses are included as part of the program
requirements and are included when calculating the Maximum Timeframe. Refer to the specific program listing for details.
Foundations courses may only be repeated once. A student who fails to successfully complete a particular foundations course
on the second attempt is subject to dismissal from the program. This determination is subject to appeal as described
elsewhere in this catalog.

Unsatisfactory Academic Progress: Students not meeting SAP are subject to dismissal from their program of study and are
ineligible to receive financial aid, except under special circumstances. When a student’s progress is evaluated as prescribed
and his or her academic performance is below either of the thresholds required to maintain SAP, the student’s academic
progress will be projected to determine if and when it would be possible for the student to reestablish SAP.

Financial Aid Warning: If a student’s progress, measured at the end of a term or module, is determined to be unsatisfactory
AND a projection indicates that it is possible to reestablish SAP by the end of the subsequent term or module, the school may
place the student on Financial Aid Warning status for one term or module. The student will be advised of the performance
necessary to reestablish SAP. A student on Financial Aid Warning is still eligible to receive financial aid. If, at the end of the
term or module during which the student was placed on Financial Aid Warning status, the student’s academic progress is
above both thresholds for SAP the student is removed from Financial Aid Warning status. If, at the end of the term or module
during which the student was placed on Financial Aid Warning status, the student’s academic progress is not above both SAP
thresholds for pace and CGPA, the student is no longer eligible to receive financial aid and no longer eligible to remain in
school. This decision is subject to appeal by the student as defined below.

Appeals of adverse determinations: Students who are ineligible to receive financial aid and are academically ineligible to
continue due to unsatisfactory academic progress are advised immediately following the determination. Students may submit
a written appeal to the Academic Review Committee.

This appeal must be filed within five (5) business days of notification of the decision and must, at a minimum, explain in writing
the circumstances that led to their unsatisfactory academic performance and why they feel that these circumstances will not be
a factor going forward. The Academic Review Committee will consider all information including potential mitigating
circumstances such as illness or other personal medical issues, family situations, financial obligations or other circumstances
presented by the student. The Academic Review Committee will uphold or deny the appeal within five (5) business days
following receipt of the appeal from the student. A student who has been dismissed due to unsatisfactory academic progress
must have an appeal upheld prior to the drop/add date in any term or module in order to attend classes in that particular term.

If an appeal is denied, the student will remain dismissed and ineligible to receive financial aid. There is no limit to the number
of appeals that a student may make.

If the appeal is upheld, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation status for one term or module, an academic
plan will be created for the student, and the student will be considered eligible to receive financial aid. The academic plan
must be structured so that a student reestablishes SAP prior to exceeding the Maximum Timeframe. The student’s
performance against the academic plan will be analyzed at the end of each term or module. If, at the end of a term or module,
the student’s performance is consistent with the terms of the academic plan, the student remains eligible to receive financial
aid and may continue in school for the subsequent term or module. If, at the end of a payment period, the student’s
performance is unsatisfactory, the student will be dismissed from his or her program of study. Students on academic plans will
be advised at the end of each term or module to ensure that they understand their performance during this time and how it
compares against the plan. A student may reestablish satisfactory academic progress at any time if s/he successfully
                                                                                              2
completes a term or module with a CGPA at or above 2.0 and a pace at or above 66 / 3 %. Students who reestablish
satisfactory academic progress are advised that they no longer need to be on an academic plan and remain eligible to receive
financial aid.

The table below summarizes financial aid eligibility and eligibility for an appeal based on a student’s status at the beginning
and end of any given term or module.

        *In some cases, a student may automatically be placed on Financial Aid Warning in this situation. Students in
        Financial Aid Warning status are eligible for financial aid and appeals are not necessary for students in this status.
        See “Financial Aid Warning” above for more details.

Change of Major/Educational Objective: When a student transfers to a new program, the total program length of the new
program is used as a basis for determining normal program length and maximum program length/maximum timeframe. All
previously attempted coursework that is applicable in the new program is carried forward into the new program, whether it was
completed successfully or not (i.e., including grades of F, WF, WP or W), for the purposes of calculating both qualitative
(CGPA) and quantitative (pace) academic progress. Coursework brought forward is applied to these progress calculations as
described in the Standards of Academic Progress policy. Existing academic year boundaries are preserved, based on the
previously applicable coursework that is transferred into the new program. If satisfactory academic progress cannot be
established at the outset of the program transfer, the transfer will not be approved.

Transfer Credits: Transfer credits are entered as grades of “T1” which are not computed in a student’s qualitative grade point
average. Transfer credits are counted as credits attempted and earned for the purposes of calculating a student’s pace of
progress in the program. See also Advanced Standing by Transfer Credit in this catalog.

Students who transfer between campuses of an institution that have a main campus with additional locations will have all
applicable coursework transferred, both successful and unsuccessful. Grades will be entered as A1, B1, C1, F1, W1, WF1,
WP1, S1 or U1, indicating such a transfer. These grades will be used in calculating both qualitative grade point average and
pace of progress as defined in the Standards of Academic Progress policy.

Additional Degrees/Diplomas: Degree or diploma students who wish to remain continuously enrolled and pursue an
additional program must complete all requirements of the first program before enrolling in a subsequent program. Any
successfully completed courses that are contained in the subsequent program will be counted towards completion of that
program.

Grading System: Grades measure the degree to which students master the competencies in their coursework and are one
measure of a student's ability to meet employment standards in the fields for which he/she is preparing. Upon the completion
of each term, the student is given a letter grade in each class based upon written examinations, practical exercises, projects
and other submitted work, as defined in the course syllabus. Reports showing the final grade in each course, the term
summary and CGPAs are furnished to each student at the end of each term. Every course for which a student officially
registers will appear on the student's official transcript unless the student cancels his/her enrollment prior to the
commencement of classes or prior to the end of the drop/add period. All courses entered on a student's official transcript are
assigned a letter-grade evaluation.

The following grades are used on grade reports and count as credits attempted for both CGPA and pace calculations of
academic progress:

The following grades will be used when a student transfers between campuses that have a main campus with additional
locations. These grades are used on grade reports and count as credits attempted for both pace and (potentially) CGPA.

Incomplete Grades: The grade of Incomplete (I) is given only when the student is making satisfactory progress in a class, but
for valid reason is unable to complete all the work in the class by the time the class ends. The student must have successfully
completed a minimum of 75 percent of the class work assigned at the time the Incomplete is requested. Students must initiate
arrangements with instructors and receive approval of the Director of Education to make up the required work before the end
of the first week of the succeeding module/term. At that time the grade will be calculated based on the work submitted and will
replace the Incomplete. Incomplete grades count as credits/hours attempted but not completed. When the Incomplete is
converted to a letter grade, it will be computed as credits/hours completed or failed, depending on the grade assigned.

Withdrawals: The W grade is assigned to class withdrawals after the drop/add period and before the mid-term date.
Withdrawals during the drop/add period of the term/module will not appear on the student’s transcript. After the mid-term,
course withdrawals are recorded as WP (Withdrawal Passing) or WF (Withdrawal Failing). If extenuating circumstances
warrant other consideration, an appeal may be made through the Academic Review Committee, as described elsewhere in
this catalog. W, WP, and WF grades count as credits attempted but not earned for the purposes of calculating the pace in
academic progress. WF grades count as credits attempted but not earned for the purposes of calculating CGPA until they are
repeated. Grades of W and WP are not used in calculating CGPA.

Pass/Fail courses: Grades of S and U are assigned to classes that do not fulfill graduation requirements such as foundations
courses that are graded on a pass/fail basis. Foundations courses may not be repeated more than one time.

Proficiency tests: The P grade is assigned when credit is granted by proficiency or challenge examination. Grades of P
count as credits attempted and earned for the purposes of calculating the pace of progress. Grades of P are not used in
calculating CGPA.




                                                              30
Repeated courses: F, U, W, WP, and WF grades require repeating and are retained on the transcript. Repeated courses will
appear on the transcript with the new letter grade earned and the previous attempts of the course will be assigned a grade of
R to indicate Repeated. The new grade will replace the original grade for the purposes of calculating the CGPA. Courses
which have been repeated (grades of R) will count as credits attempted for the purposes of calculating pace. Students in non-
term credit hour programs or clock hour programs may not receive financial aid for repeated courses. Students in term-based
credit hour programs may receive financial aid to repeat failed courses. Other than Foundations courses, which can only be
repeated a single time, there is no fixed limit to the number of times a particular course may be repeated as long as a student
is making satisfactory academic progress. As of July 1, 2011, a student’s enrollment status in a term-based, credit hour
program for Title IV purposes may include coursework being repeated that was previously taken in the program, but may not
include more than one repetition of a specific, previously passed course. The original grade will be replaced with an R and the
repeated grade will be used in calculating the CGPA. All attempts count in the pace of the program.

Audited courses: Audited courses are assigned a grade of AU. Audited courses do not count as credits attempted or credits
earned for any purposes and do not have any effect on calculations of pace or GPA.

The following table summarizes the effect of specific grades on the calculations of pace and CGPA:

GRADE POINT-AVERAGE
The grade-point average (GPA) is computed by multiplying the quality point equivalent for each grade by the quarter credit
hours given for that course, adding the products, and then dividing the sum by the credit hours attempted during the term.
Note the following example of determining a grade-point average:

                                            Credit Hours                          Quality

DUE PROCESS FOR GRADE CONTESTING POLICY
Students enrolled in classes at Miller-Motte College have the right to contest grades assigned to them. The following
procedure will be followed by the student who desires to contest a grade:
Schedule an appointment with the instructor who has assigned the grade. Discuss the matter with him/her asking him/her to
review the basis for assigning the grade. If the disagreement about the grade is resolved in this discussion, the instructor
should initiate any needed change in grade.
If not resolved in Step 1 above, schedule an appointment with the Registrar to review the basis for assigning the grade. The
Registrar may wish to consult individually with the student and instructor. If the disagreement about the grade if resolved in this
discussion, grade change action (when needed) should originate through the instructor and be approved by the Registrar.
EXCEPTION: In a situation where the grade in question involves a dispute between a student and the Director of Education,
the appeal may move directly to step 3.
     1) If the matter is still not resolved, the student must inform the instructor and the Registrar that the case is being
          presented to the Director of Education for review.
     2) A final review will be made by the Director of Education by consultation with all individuals involved. The grade in
          question may be upheld, or it may be declared invalid by the Director of Education. If declared invalid, the Director of
          Education may take the following action:
               a. Ask that the student be given a comprehensive examination by the Department Chair to establish a grade of
                   record;
               b. Assign an “Incomplete” or assign a “Pass” or “Fail;” (each with the Director of Education’ signature rather
                   than the instructor’s).
The right to contest a grade expires at the end of the quarter following the one in which the grade is assigned. The time limit
may be waived by the Director of Education only in unusual circumstances. When a student contests a grade assigned by an
instructor no longer employed by the institution, Step 1 above does not apply.


ACADEMIC INTEGRITY POLICY
All Miller-Motte College students are expected to conduct themselves in an ethical and professional manner. All academic
assignments, including papers, homework, tests, and in-class assignments are to be the work of the student unless otherwise
specified by the instructor. The following are examples of unethical or unprofessional behavior:
    •    Plagiarism: Using another person’s words, ideas, or results without giving proper credit to that person.
    •    Using notes, textbooks, or other materials when not allowed during an examination.
    •    Giving test questions or answers to another student or obtaining them for another student.
    •    Partly or wholly completing an assignment for another student.
    •    Talking or appearing to be talking while an exam or quiz is in progress
Students who act in an unethical or unprofessional manner on a test, quiz or assignment will receive a grade of “0” for that
particular test, quiz or assignment. A second incidence of unethical or unprofessional behavior will result in administrative
suspension or dismissal from the college.




                                                                32

TRANSCRIPTS
A full and complete record of every course for which a student registers is maintained on a Student Record and Transcript
Form. The record of all credits attempted and earned is posted to this form concurrent with the issuance of quarterly or term
grade reports to students. Challenges or change of these entries must occur within three months of the date of posting. A
sealed and dated copy of this form represents an Official Transcript. One Official Transcript will be provided free of charge to
the student or to any institution or agency designated by the student. As of May 5, 2011, additional Official Transcripts will be
furnished at a charge of $10.00 each. Students who have not satisfied their financial obligations to the College are not eligible
to receive a transcript.
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 provide that institutions will maintain the confidentiality of student
education records and permits students to inspect and review such records. The College accords all the rights under the law to
all students who have officially enrolled at the College. Written authorization by the student is required for the College to
release an Official Transcript. A copy of the College policy on the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act is available in the
Office of the Registrar.

RESIDENCY REQUIREMENT
The total credits not earned in residency, including credit by transfer, credit by Miller-Motte College testing, and credit from all
other non-traditional sources may not exceed fifty percent (50%) of the total credits required for the completion of the student’s
program of study. Classes completed in diploma programs will be evaluated without limitation on a course-by-course basis for
transfer into degree programs for students completing programs in residency.



                                                                    33
Miller-Motte College will limit academic residency to twenty-five percent or less of the degree requirement for all degrees for
active-duty servicemembers and their adult family members (spouse and college-age children). In addition, there are no “final
year” or “final semester” residency requirements for active-duty servicemembers and their family members. Academic
residency can be completed at any time while active-duty servicemembers and their family members are enrolled. Reservist
and National Guardsmen on active-duty are covered in the same manner.

WAIVER OF PREREQUISITES
Under special circumstances a student may be permitted to waive a prerequisite and take a course out of sequence. Approval
to waive a prerequisite shall be the responsibility of the Director of Education. Waiver, as used here, simply means a change in
the order in which the courses will be taken. The student must complete all courses required in the curriculum.

SUBSTITUTION OF COURSES
The College reserves the right to substitute a course of equivalent weight and value for a prescribed course when, in the
opinion of the Administration, it will aid the student in achieving vocational objectives.

LICENSING/CERTIFICATION
Massage Programs: Students who successfully complete the massage program will be eligible for professional
certification once all the course and testing requirements have been met and are therefore adequately prepared to take the
National Certification Examination for Therapeutic Massage and Bodywork. NOTE: The State of North Carolina requires
certification and training from a 500 hour state approved program in order to be eligible for licensure in North Carolina. You
may be unable to obtain licensure in North Carolina if you have a misdemeanor or felony conviction. The NCBTMB reviews
misdemeanor and felony convictions on a case-by-case basis. For additional information and an application for licensure,
contact the North Carolina Board of Massage & Bodywork Therapy, PO Box 2539, Raleigh, NC 27602; telephone 919-546-
0050. For a National Certification Candidate Handbook, contact the National Certification Board for Therapeutic Massage and
Bodywork, 8201 Greensboro Drive, Suite 300, McLean, VA 22102; telephone: 703-610-9015.
Esthetics Program: Students who successfully complete the Esthetics program will be eligible for professional certification
once all the course and testing requirements have been met and are therefore adequately prepared to take the North Carolina
State Board licensing exam.

GENERAL EDUCATION GOALS
General education at Miller-Motte College exposes students to a variety of academic experiences in the areas of verbal and
written communication, mathematics, social science, physical and biological sciences, and the humanities. Required courses
complement studies in the technologies. General education class offerings prepare students to:
    •    Communicate information effectively through reading, writing and listening;
    •    Solve problems through logical reasoning;
    •    Acquire a general knowledge of physical science;
    •    Understand and use quantification skills to solve problems;
    •    Analyze views on moral and ethical issues;
    •    Be familiar with the nature and function of the social sciences; and
    •    Appreciate human life through the study of literature and the arts.

SPECIAL PROGRAMS
Single courses or combinations of single courses are available to prospective students in either day or evening classes.
Tuition charges for such programs are based on the total number of classes scheduled.

EVENING CLASSES
The College offers its programs through both day and evening classes. Courses may be taken and credits may be
accumulated until graduation requirements have been met. The evening classes also provide appropriate educational
opportunities for those who cannot or choose not to attend day classes. Evening classes are offered for continuing education
for those who desire to improve themselves in order to advance to better positions in the concerns where they are already
employed; for those who desire to lift themselves out of the ranks of the untrained workers into more congenial positions
affording higher salaries and better opportunities; for those who desire to enter certain lines of employment; for those who
have opportunities to make changes that are advantageous; or for those who need special business and training to meet
required circumstances. The maximum number of classes that can be taken in evening school is four per term; therefore,
program lengths may be expanded for evening school students.

CURRICULUM REVISIONS
Curriculum revisions and other academic changes are an on-going process. Revisions are made for the benefit of the
students and future employers and to ensure that students receive the most current information and material available. Notice
of curriculum revisions will be made to all involved parties and regulatory agencies.
