Absences and Attendance

Students must attend 90% of all scheduled classes in order to successfully complete the course unless formally excused by the instructor. The student is responsible for making up any missed work. Failure to attend at least 90% of classes could result in unsuccessful completion of the training.

Program Discharge

The purpose of the NCT Radiological Program is to help students achieve their career goals. For the program to be successful, the student must demonstrate behavior conducive to the learning process. Failure to do so could result in disciplinary action including removal from the program. Tuition will not be reimbursed.

Readmission

If a student fails to complete the program or any training requirements due to unforeseen circumstances such as serious illness, admittance to the next scheduled program or training courses may be allowed. This decision is made by the Training Program Director.

Tardiness

A student is tardy when he or she enters the class and/or laboratory after the scheduled start time. A tardy will turn into an absence if a student is more than 20 minutes late for class. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the instructor marks the student present within these guidelines.

Completion Requirements

Students must complete all course work satisfactorily with a grade of 70% or above, and demonstrate minimum mastery of all program or training competencies with a grade of 85% or above, with at least 90% attendance for all course hours.
