Academic Information [+]
click again to collapse

The philosophy of Lanier Technical College is to allow every student the maximum opportunity to graduate. The Technical College System of Georgia implemented a policy effective Spring Quarter 1992 which required that, prior to graduation from Lanier Technical College, all students must receive a GED or a high school diploma. The Adult Education component of Lanier Technical College can advise students on preparation and testing for the GED. For further information, contact their office at 770-531-3356.

Academic Probation [+]
click again to collapse

A student who fails to maintain a 2.0 GPA in any semester will be placed on academic probation. The purpose of academic probation is to alert the student that his/her academic performance is not acceptable and to point out the possible consequences if improvements are not made during the next semester of enrollment. A student placed on academic probation (or admitted on probation) must attain a minimum 2.0 GPA during the next semester in attendance to remove himself/herself from probationary status. A student who fails to do so is subject to academic dismissal.

Academic Standing [+]
click again to collapse

Students' academic standing is updated each semester and may be viewed via Banner Web.

Advanced Placement [+]
click again to collapse

Students may be eligible for advanced placement through two methods: transfer credit and exemption credit.

Attendance Regulations [+]
click again to collapse

Attendance policies vary by program. Program attendance policies are listed on course syllabi. It is the responsibility of each student to clarify the exact attendance policy of his/her particular program of study. No program of study allows absences in excess of 20% of the scheduled class time no matter the reason for the absences. Excessive absences will result in dismissal from the course(s).

Online Courses: Online students must complete an academically related activity each week to be considered active. Simply logging into an online class is not considered to be active. You will be dismissed for an excess of 20% attendance violation (does not have to be consecutive) in online classes as follows:

   • 15 week term — total of 3 weeks of inactivity
   • 10 week term — total of 2 weeks of inactivity
   • 7 week term — total of 2 weeks of inactivity

Academically related activities include, but are not limited to the following:

   • submitting an academic assignment;
   • taking an exam, an interactive tutorial or computer-assisted instruction;
   • participating in an online discussion about academic matters


Hybrid Courses: Absences in hybrid courses may not exceed 20% of scheduled on-campus classes or 20% of the total contact hours for the course.

Appeal Process for Records Correction [+]
click again to collapse

Any student who believes that adjudication of his/her challenge was unfair or not in keeping with provisions of the Act may request, in writing, assistance from the President of the college to aid him/her in filing complaints with The Family Education Rights and Privacy Act Office (FERPA), Department of Education, Room 4074, Switzer Building, Washington D. C. 20202. Revisions and clarifications will be published as experience with the law and school's policy warrants.

Appeals [+]
click again to collapse

Students who are terminated for attendance violations may appeal only if they feel their program attendance policy was not administered equitably to all students. These students must present evidence that this is the case in order to schedule an appeal. The appeal committee will support appropriate implementation of each program's attendance policy. Requests for a hearing must be made within three (3) days of the termination. The appeal should be scheduled through the Vice President for Student Affairs' Office. The student will then be informed as to whether or not he/she is to return to class until the hearing. This hearing committee will have access to the student's prior attendance records and information as needed to make a fair decision regarding the case.

Armed Services Credit [+]
click again to collapse

Armed Services Credit may be awarded for education/training experiences in the Armed Services. Such experiences must be certified by the American Council on Education (identified in the Council's publication, Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services). Credit will be given on the basis of individual evaluation. Creditable military experience must closely correspond in content and competencies to courses in the Lanier Technical College curriculum.

Change of Program [+]
click again to collapse

Students desiring to change their program of study must complete a Change of Program Form available in the Admissions Office. The requirements for the new program will be checked against the student's test scores and/or former course work. Retesting and/or Learning Support course work may be required. Once the form is completed and approved, copies will be distributed to the appropriate department and the Financial Aid Office. Program changes may significantly impact a student's educational and career goals. Students should discuss this change with their academic advisor prior to initiating the change process.

Career counselors are a valuable resource in assisting students with career choices. Students who are receiving benefits under student assistance programs (federal student aid, veterans benefits) should discuss the possible impact of the change on the receipt of benefits. These programs have specific guidelines concerning changes of program. Not all credits earned under one program may necessarily apply to the new program. In some cases, changing programs may lengthen the time required to complete a program. The decision concerning transferability of credits is made by the receiving department head and the Registrar. Students must fill out a Request for Transfer Credit form and submit the form to the Registrar.

Directory Information [+]
click again to collapse

At its discretion, the college may provide directory information in accordance with the provisions of the Act. The following information is considered by Lanier Technical College as Directory Information:
  • Name
  • Address
  • Telephone Number
  • College Assigned E-mail Address
  • Dates of Enrollment
  • Enrollment Status (Full/Part-Time, not Enrolled)
  • Major
  • Advisor's Name
  • Academic Awards and Honors Received (Including President's List)
  • Class (Freshman/Sophomore)
  • Degree, Diploma, or Certificate Conferred, Including Dates
  • Date of Birth
  • Place of Birth
  • Previous Institution(s) Attended

This information may be given without the student's consent unless the student notifies the Office of Student Affairs and requests the information be held. Social Security Number may be verified, but will not be dispersed as directory information.

Exceptions [+]
click again to collapse

Students may not inspect nor review the following as outlined by the Act: financial information submitted by their parents; confidential letters and recommendations associated with admissions, employment or job placement, or honors to which they have waived their rights of inspection and review; or education records containing information about more than one student, in which case the college will permit access only to that part of the record which pertains to the inquiring student. The college is not required to permit students to inspect and review confidential letters and recommendations placed in their files prior to January 1, 1975, provided those letters were collected under established policies of confidentiality and were used only for the purposes for which they were collected.

Exemption Credit [+]
click again to collapse

Exemption Credit earned by examination, in courses where available, may be awarded when the student requests course exemption by examination. The student must present satisfactory evidence that he or she has prior knowledge of a particular subject before being eligible to test. A student interested in credit by examination should confer with his/her advisor and the instructor of the course to be exempted. However, a student cannot take an exemption test for a course in which he/she is currently or was previously enrolled.

If the student successfully passes the exemption test, he or she will receive an "EX" on his/her transcript. The grade will count in total hours earned but will not be calculated in the student's grade point average. Courses that are exempted may not be counted in the calculation of a student's total credit hours for determination of financial aid benefits.

An Exemption Credit Payment Form must be completed by any student interested in attempting credit examination. These forms as well as a listing of courses currently available for exemption are available at www.laniertech.edu or upon request in the Office of Student Affairs.

The student will sign up to take the exam with the exam instructor; his or her advisor must approve the attempted exam and sign the Exemption Credit Payment Form. The exemption fee(s) of $5 per credit hour for the course(s) to be exempted must be paid at the Business Office before the student will be allowed to test.

When the exam is graded, the student will receive the test results and a copy of the Exemption Credit Payment Form. If a student passes the exemption test and would like to add an additional course during the seven (7) day add period, he or she should see his or her advisor. If a student fails the exemption test and would like to add this course during the seven (7) day add period, he or she should see his or her advisor. If space is available in the course to be added, fees for the added course must be paid by cash, check or invoice before the course will be added to the student's registration.

Foreign Earned Credit [+]
click again to collapse

Foreign Earned Credit may be awarded based upon an evaluation performed by an independent evaluation service. The Registrar will make the final decision regarding the award of transfer credit. Grade points will not be assigned to transfer credit.

Grade Appeal Procedure [+]
click again to collapse

Questions and concerns about grades are often the result of misunderstandings about grading practices and expected standards. Direct communication between the instructor and the student, including review of the course syllabus, usually resolves these misunderstandings. If a student receives a course grade which he/she believes is incorrect, the student should contact the instructor no later than the end of the first week of the following quarter to discuss the concern. If conversation with the instructor does not resolve the matter, the student will follow the grade appeal procedure:

1. The student will contact the Dean of Academic Affairs to file the "Academic Appeal Form" and to request a meeting to discuss the issue. The Dean will conduct an investigation in an effort to resolve the appeal and will give the student an interpretation of the grade.

2. If no solution is found after meeting with the Dean of Academic Affairs, the student may file an appeal with the Vice President of Academic Affairs or Vice President of Campus Operations before the mid-term of the quarter following the quarter in which the grade was received, or the student may lose his/her right to appeal.

3. Upon receiving the completed appeal form, the Vice President of Academic Affairs or Vice President of Campus Operations will review the appeal, notify the instructor that an appeal has been made, and activate the Academic Appeals Committee to hear the student’s appeal. Membership of this committee includes:
   - Dean of Academic Affairs – Chair of Committee
   - Student Government Representative
   - A faculty member from a department not involved in the appeal appointed
      by the Vice President
   - A faculty member selected by the student making the appeal
   - A faculty member selected by the instructor whose grade is being appealed

4. Since the hearing conducted by the Academic Appeals Committee is an in-house procedure and not a court of law, no legal counsel or any other person may be present except the student, the instructor, and appointed members of the committee. Exceptions to this would be granted by the Vice President only in the case of a disabled student requiring some highly specialized extraordinary assistance that could not be routinely provided by the chair or another member of the committee.

5. A meeting of the Academic Appeals Committee is scheduled by the Vice President within two weeks of receiving the appeal.

6. On the date of the hearing, the Academic Appeals Committee convenes at the appointed place with the aggrieved student and involved faculty member. The chair of the committee presides at the meeting. The committee examines the evidence, calls witnesses as necessary, and keeps informal minutes of the proceedings that shall be available to the Vice President and President.

7. The faculty member involved in the appeal presents his/her case to the committee (no longer than 15 minutes). The aggrieved student is not present during this presentation. The committee may question the faculty member concerning his/her testimony. Following completion of the testimony, the faculty member is dismissed.

8. The student involved in the appeal presents his/her case to the committee (no longer than 15 minutes). The faculty member involved in the appeal is not present during this presentation. The committee may question the student concerning his/her testimony. Following completion of the testimony, the student is dismissed.

9. Following the hearing of all testimony, the committee convenes to discuss the evidence and make a decision as to the disposition of the appeal. A formal vote will be taken by the chair to determine the outcome of the appeal.

10. The chair notifies the Vice President of the committee’s recommendation within two working days of the hearing.

11. The Vice President will notify the student and faculty member in writing as to the disposition of the appeal within five working days of the hearing date.

12. Further appeal, if desired by either party, will be presented to the President and Vice President.

13. Decisions of the president are final.

Grades [+]
click again to collapse

Grades will be recorded in letter grades. An overall 2.0 GPA (Grade Point Average) is required for graduation. A minimum grade of "C" may be required for progress from specified courses to more advanced courses. The following grading scale is used for all Lanier Technical College students:

90 - 100 = A (4.0)
80 - 89 = B (3.0)
70 - 79 = C (2.0)
60 - 69 = D (1.0)
59 or below = F (0)


WF Withdrawn Failing = F (0) after 25 class days
WP Withdrawn Passing after 25 class days
w Withdrawn during first 25 class days
I Incomplete
AU Audit (Non-Credit)
EX Exemption
AC Articulated Credit
TR Transfer Credit


An Incomplete (I) must be converted to a grade before mid-term of the following quarter from the date the Incomplete was recorded or it will be converted to a punitive failing grade. Withdrew (W) during the first 25 school days. This grade does not affect GPA but may affect financial aid eligibility. WP and WF students who withdraw after 25 school days will receive a "WP" (Withdrawn Passing) or a "WF" (Withdrawn Failing) depending upon his/her actual grades. The grade of "WF" will be calculated as an "F" in the GPA. These grades may affect financial aid eligibility. Calculation of Grade Point Average (GPA) For calculating GPA, each letter grade has a point value. Listed below are the values:

A = 4
B = 3
C = 2
D = 1
F = 0
WF = 0

The grade points are determined by multiplying the number of points a grade is worth times the credit hours a course carries. Thus a grade of an "A" (4 points) in a 5 credit hour course (4 x 5) equals 20 points. The same grade "A" in a 3 credit hour course (4 x 3) equals 12 points. Example: An "CIS" student's grades may appear as follows:

Credit Hours Grade Points
ENGL 1010 Fundamentals of English 3 B (3) 9
MATH 1012 Foundations of Mathematics 3 A (4) 12
CIST 1001 Computer Concepts 4 D (1) 4
Total Points 25

Individual course points are added together to determine total points. To determine the GPA, divide total points by total credit hours: 25 / 10 = 2.50 GPA

Grading Policies [+]
click again to collapse

Academic and grading requirements are established in accordance with state requirements. However, minimum standards for training at Lanier Technical College become a permanent record of the Georgia School System and are available to other colleges, state officials, and potential employers with the student's written approval through the Student Affairs Office.

Graduation [+]
click again to collapse

Each potential graduate must complete an Application for Graduation Form the semester prior to the student's completion of graduation requirements. The application deadline will be posted at www.laniertech.edu. The student's faculty advisor and the Registrar will complete a graduation audit to insure that all requirements for graduation have been successfully completed. Degrees, Diplomas or Technical Certificates of Credit cannot be ordered until final grades are submitted and the graduation audit is completed.

An overall 2.0 grade point average is required for graduation. Students must apply and be accepted into a program prior to completing requirements for that program. Students cannot graduate from a program unless they have been accepted into that particular program. Lanier Technical College awards technical certificates of credit or diplomas, which are "embedded" within a program of study. Contact the Office of the Registrar for information.

A formal graduation ceremony is held once each year for graduates during the academic year. Students are encouraged to participate in the ceremony. Specific information on each year's graduation is mailed to all students eligible to graduate. Students participating in the ceremony will be required to pay a $35 graduation fee which is non-refundable and is not covered by HOPE. Students who achieve a final GPA of 4.0 are provided honor cords to wear at graduation.

Leaving Class Early [+]
click again to collapse

Each student who leaves class prior to the end of the regular college day or before the end of any class must secure the approval of the instructor or instructors and will be counted tardy. In case of illness, the student must check out of college through his/her instructor. Students will be expected to adhere to the policies of their respective departments. Failure to do so may result in termination.

Procedure on Plagiarism [+]
click again to collapse

Definition

Plagiarism is a dishonest act that occurs when a student submits someone else's work (from as little as a sentence or phrase to an entire document) as his or her own. This act can range from not citing an author for ideas and/or published material (including work from the Internet) to copying and pasting information from websites or any other publications, as well as paying for a paper written by someone else. Using someone else's words or ideas in an oral presentation without giving credit is yet another form of plagiarism.

The temptation to commit plagiarism is greater than ever with all the information from the Internet. In addition, it is now easier to identify plagiarized material than ever before. Some instructors have access to the program Turnitin.com, a good resource for flagging plagiarism. Everyone has access to the Internet, and a copied and pasted sentence or section into Google will reveal if the information has been published elsewhere. In other words, detection of plagiarism is easy for instructors.

If a student is not sure what is correct and acceptable, guidance from your instructor should be sought. There are also many websites available giving specific examples of how to avoid plagiarizing.

Procedure

This is the procedure Lanier Technical College will follow in regards to plagiarized work received from a student.
  • When an instructor identifies plagiarized material, he or she will assign a grade of zero to the submission. The zero may be considered a consequence of not meeting the stated criteria for the task as well as of plagiarizing.
  • A copy of the assignment in which the plagiarism took place with documentation of the source of the original material will be given to the student and sent to the dean of academic affairs or campus director to be filed.
  • If there is a second infraction by the student in any class during his/her remaining tenure at Lanier Technical College, the dean/director will contact the individual and counsel the student regarding academic repercussions. Penalties for the second act of plagiarism will be the same as the first, plus the instructor's option of giving the student an F in the course. See Code of Conduct from Student Handbook for the full scope of expected student conduct and penalties for infractions.


Procedure for Protecting the Privacy of Distance Education Students [+]
click again to collapse

Lanier Technical College protects the privacy of all students, adhering to the same privacy standards for online students as it does for students studying on the campus, through strict adherence to the rules of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). The official FERPA statement is available for student view on the College's website, in the Catalog/Student Handbook, and on the ANGEL Learning Management System (LMS) main page.

LTC issues a unique username and password to each student upon enrollment and each College employee upon date of employment who is required to access the ANGEL Learning Management System, the platform the College uses for distance education. ANGEL is a secure environment where faculty members post course materials, assignments and exams, provide chat and discussion forums for their courses, and where students participate in forum discussions, chat sessions, upload assignments, and take quizzes and exams. The privacy of individual students' assessments and grades is maintained within the learning management system.

Anyone using ANGEL is required to have a unique username and password to access any learning management resources. Faculty are restricted to accessing information associated with the specific courses they teach. Students are automatically enrolled in courses through a batch process run by the ANGEL Administrator each semester and identified by their unique username and password. Students are restricted to information allowed by faculty members in courses for which they have enrolled and student-group related activities in a given course. Course and user profile information is not visible to anyone without an account. Authorized ANGEL users cannot view the profile information of other users unless those users give permission.

Secure Login and Password: Each distance learning faculty and student enters his/her username and password into ANGEL to gain access to authorized ANGEL learning environment resources. This combination of username and password identifies faculty and students to the system on each course visit. Upon initial login, students and faculty are given the opportunity to change their password. LTC keeps no record of the student's password once it has been changed. A lost password link can be emailed to the faculty's or student's email address if requested by the student or faculty member. Students are responsible for keeping their password confidential. LMS Password Resets are submitted through email to our helpdesk. To protect the privacy of students, those working the helpdesk are trained to reset the password to match the original login. This login is automatically sent to the student's secure LTC email account. If the request is received over the phone, the passwords are reset following the same procedure.

In addition, LTC uses an online account host (Banner Web) to enable students to view their personal information, class schedules, final course grades, and transcripts. Upon admission to the College, students are assigned a unique username and password to access this information. Upon log in to their Banner Web account, students are given the opportunity to change their passwords for security purposes.

Each student is assigned a unique student email address by the College. This student email system is maintained by the College and provides students with a secure login environment.

Lanier Technical College provides links to other websites that may be useful for our students and/or customers. Lanier Technical College cannot make any representation of guarantee regarding the linked sites, their content or their security. For your protection, Lanier Technical College suggests that you review the privacy and security policies of the company websites for each link.

Should your private information be compromised in any way, Lanier Technical College will inform you of the breach.

Records Correction Procedures [+]
click again to collapse

Any student who believes that his/her education record contains information that is inaccurate or misleading, or is otherwise in violation of his/her privacy or other rights may discuss his/her problems informally with the Registrar. If the decisions are in agreement with the student's request, the appropriate records will be amended. If not, the student will be notified within a reasonable period of time that the records will not be amended; and he/she will also be informed by the Registrar of his/her right to a formal hearing.

Student requests for a formal hearing must be made in writing to the Vice President for Student Affairs who, within a reasonable period of time after receiving such requests, will inform the student of the date, place, and time of the hearing. Students may present evidence relevant to the issues raised and may be assisted or represented at the student's expense. The hearing panel which will adjudicate such challenges will be the Vice President for Student Affairs, representatives from the Office of Student Affairs, and a faculty representative from the student's program of study.

Decisions of the hearing panel will be final, will be based solely on the evidence presented at the hearing, will consist of written statements summarizing the evidence and stating the reasons for the decisions, and will be delivered to all parties concerned. The education records will be corrected or amended in accordance with the decisions of the hearing panel, if the decisions are in favor of the student. If the decisions are unsatisfactory to the student, the student may place with the education records statements commenting on the information in the records or statements setting forth any reasons for disagreeing with the decisions of the hearing panel. The statements will be placed in the education records, maintained as part of the student's records, and released whenever the records in question are disclosed.

Repeated Course Policy [+]
click again to collapse

When a course is repeated, the highest grade is used in the computation of the student's overall GPA. Exceptions are grades of "W", "WP", and "AU." When a "W", "WP", or "AU" is the most recent grade, the previous grade is used in the computation of the student's overall GPA.

Review of Records [+]
click again to collapse

The law provides students with the right to inspect and review information contained in their education records, to have a hearing if the outcome of the challenge is unsatisfactory, and to submit explanatory statements for inclusion in their files if the decisions of the hearing panels are unacceptable.

The Registrar at Lanier Technical College has been designated by the school to coordinate the inspection and review procedures for student education records, which include admissions, personal, academic, and financial files, and academic, cooperative education, and placement records. Any student wishing to review his/her education record must make written request to the Registrar listing the item or items of interest. Only records covered by the Act will be made available within forty-five days of the request. Students may have copies made of their records with certain exceptions (e.g., a copy of the academic record for which a financial "hold" exists or transcript of an original or source document which exists elsewhere).

Copies will be made at the student's expense at prevailing rates. Education records do not include records of instructional, administrative, and educational personnel which are the sole possession of the college, records of the law enforcement unit, student health records, employment records or alumni records. Health records, however, may be reviewed by physicians of the student's choosing.

Tardiness [+]
click again to collapse

Students are tardy if they are not in the classroom when the class begins. Three tardies count as an absence. It is the responsibility of the student to keep an account of tardiness and absences. Excessive tardiness may result in dismissal.

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act [+]
click again to collapse

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974, as amended, is a federal law which states (a) that a written institutional policy must be established and (b) that a statement of adopted procedures covering the privacy rights of students be made available. The law provides that the school will maintain the confidentiality of student educational records.

Lanier Technical College accords all the rights under the law to its students. No one outside the college shall have access to nor will the college disclose any information from student's educational records without the written consent of students except to personnel within the college, to officials of other institutions in which students seek to enroll, to persons or organizations providing student financial aid, to accrediting agencies carrying out their accreditation function, to persons in compliance with a judicial order, and to persons in an emergency in order to protect the health or safety of students or other persons. All these exceptions are permitted under the Act.

Within the Lanier Technical College community, only those members, individually or collectively, acting in the students' educational interest are allowed access to student education records. These members include personnel in the Offices of the Registrar, Administrative Services, Financial Aid, Admissions, and Academic Affairs within the limitations of their need to know.

Transfer Credit [+]

Students may transfer between programs within Lanier Technical College if they meet the individual requirements of acceptance into those programs. Credit will be granted for previous training as determined by the Technical College System of Georgia policies, Registrar's Office, and program instructors.

Students transferring to Lanier Technical College from another postsecondary institution will be considered for admission if they are in good standing at their previous institution, meet entrance requirements, and follow regular admission procedures. Transfer applicants who are on academic probation at their previous institution may be considered for admission on academic probation.

Lanier Technical College recognizes previous postsecondary course work by accepting credits that are applicable to the student's program of study earned from other regionally accredited institutions. The awarding of credit does not guarantee that institutions subsequently attended by the student will accept those credits. A student may receive credit for courses taken at another postsecondary institution if:

  • Students desiring transfer credit submit a Transfer of Credit Form to the Registrar;
  • The course taken is essentially the same content or at a higher level as the course at Lanier Technical College;
  • An official transcript is on file in the student's admission file from all postsecondary institutions attended;
  • The course has the same number of credit hours (or greater) as the course at Lanier Technical College;
  • A grade of "C" or higher has been earned for the course to be transferred;
  • Departmental approval is required when specified by the Registrar.

Students receiving VA benefits must submit a transfer of credit request if courses are available for transfer. A grade of "TR" will be entered on the permanent record if credit is awarded. The hours will not be computed in the grade point average or appear on the quarterly grade report.

Withdrawals [+]
click again to collapse

Students who transfer or withdraw from school must inform the Student Affairs Office. All information should be in writing so as to protect the student's scholastic record and facilitate transfers to other colleges or employment. The college's standard termination form is completed by the student and the instructor. A reason for withdrawal should be given. If the student plans to reenter, he/she must complete a Re-Entry Request Form and return it to the Admissions Office before the anticipated registration date. An honorable dismissal cannot be given to any student who has not satisfactorily accounted for all property and financial obligations.

Work Ethics [+]
click again to collapse

The TCSG Work Ethics program is designed to promote positive work behaviors and to prepare students to be better, more productive workers. Evaluation is based on the following identified set of ten work ethics traits: Attendance, Character, Teamwork, Appearance, Attitude, Productivity, Organization, Communication, Cooperation, and Respect.

Students will receive a Work Ethics grade for all courses except Learning Support. This includes Internet and Web Enhanced/Hybrid classes. Work Ethics grades will be reflected on student transcripts but will not be computed into the grade point average (GPA).
