Tennessee College of Applied Technology Division

Return to Academic Divisions Return to: Academic Divisions

Tennessee College of Applied Technology programs are designed to be completed in one year (usually 1290 clock hours except as noted). However, some students may need more or less than the usual number of clock hours to achieve the level of competency required.

Academic Retention Standards

Effective fall term 2007, a minimum grade point average of 2.00 (on 4.0 scale) is required each semester for continued enrollment in the TCAP, except for those programs having higher retention/progression standards due to accrediting or licensing requirements.. Students failing to achieve the minimum semester grade for the program will be suspended for one enrollment period.

The semester grade will reflect each student's progress in the following categories:

Skill Proficiency (written tests, lab work)
Related Information (daily journals, math)
Worker Characteristics (attendance*, participation, working with others)

*Regular and punctual class attendance is required. Excessive absences and tardies will have an adverse effect on student progress. For each 1% of the assigned clock hours that a student is absent from class, 3.2 points will be deducted from the attendance grade. A student who has been absent for 11% or more of a semester will receive a failing grade for attendance. One point will be deducted from the final attendance grade for each tardy. A student is considered tardy if not in the classroom at the designated time for class to start. The attendance grade will be averaged in with the other course-related grades for the student's final semester grade.

In individual cases of extenuating circumstances, the dean may make exceptions to suspension. Requests for exceptions must be made in writing and be accompanied by full documentation.

Readmission by the Dean from Suspension

Criteria considered in evaluating readmission requests are 1) the candidate's willingness to address those deficiencies that contributed to the suspension and 2) the likelihood that the student may succeed in pursuing his or her training objective.
