Student Records

The Office of Student Services maintains student records on all actively enrolled students in its records office.

These records consist of, but are not limited to the following documents:

  • Admissions and/or Readmit Applications
  • High School Transcripts (if applicable), College Transcripts (if applicable), Placement Test Scores;
  • Change of Curriculum Forms, Change of Name and Address Forms, Change of Grade Forms;
  • Transfer Credit Evaluations for Academic Advanced Standing (if applicable); and
  • General Admissions and Registrar Services Correspondence.

The responsibility for the protection of the privacy of student educational records rests primarily with the records office. Northeastern Technical College complies with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974 and coordinates the disposition of student records with the South Carolina Department of Archives and History.

Information retained in the student's permanent academic record housed in the vault located in the Office of Student Services may include the following:

  • Academic transcripts from high school or GED certificate
  • Placement test scores
  • Acceptance letter
  • Change of curriculum form
  • Placement test scores
  • Change of grade forms

NETC must maintain a master academic record (transcript) for all former and current students for 75 years as noted in the Records Retention Schedule regarding this procedure.

The Office of Student Services personnel are the only staff members authorized to access student records in the vault. Once a file has entered the vault from the Admissions acceptance files, it becomes a permanent student record. A file is only removed from the vault when appropriate written requests are filed with the records office or for the purpose of re-admitting a student to the college.

Grade Policy

Repeating Courses: When a student repeats a course, all grades will be entered on the student's permanent academic record. However, the higher of the grades will be included in the Grade Point Average.

 All coursework attempted will be calculated in the assessment of academic progress for student financial aid purposes.

 Upon the third unsuccessful attempt of a sequence course, the student must repeat and pass any prerequisite course with a "C" or better.

Grade Reports: Grade reports will be available through the NETC Portal at the end of each semester. Verification request should be made at the records office.

Academic Honors

To achieve the President's List or Dean's List for a semester, a student must have completed at least 9 credit hours, excluding developmental work, with a 4.0 G.P.A. for the President's List and a 3.5 G.P.A. for the Dean's List.  Any "I" or "F" grades mean automatic ineligibility. For graduation purposes, all students who have a 3.5 program G.P.A. or higher on credits earned through the spring term, prior to graduation ceremonies, will be acknowledged as honor graduates.

Academic Probation/Suspension

Academic Warning: A student pursuing an associate degree, diploma or certificate program is considered to be in serious academic difficulty if his or her cumulative grade point ratio falls below 2.0, or he/she fails 50 percent of all hours attempted in developmental studies courses.

Academic Probation: Any student who fails to earn a 2.0 G.P.A. or fails 50 percent of developmental courses during an academic warning term will be subject to a term of academic probation.

Academic Suspension: Students on academic probation who fail to earn a 2.0 G.P.A. or fail 50 percent of developmental courses will be subject to academic suspension from the college. Students will be re-admitted after one term of suspension and must maintain a 2.0 G.P.A. on all work attempted or pass more than 50 percent of the developmental courses attempted. Re-admission after a second term of academic suspension should include participation in counseling in the Office of Student Services to determine if the student should consider a curriculum change.

Non-academic Suspension: A student suspended from the college for non-academic reasons will be notified in writing of the length of suspension. For violations of conduct, the instructor may temporarily dismiss the student from class and refer the matter to the dean of Student Services or vice president for Academic Affairs and Student Services. Non-academic suspensions will be initiated only by the dean of Student Services. The length of the probation and/or suspension will depend on the nature of the violation.

Re-admission After Suspension: To be re-admitted after suspension, the student must submit a written request directly to the dean of Student Services.

Appeal of Academic Suspension: If you wish to appeal this academic suspension, you must submit a written statement outlining exactly why you feel an exception to this rule should be made in your case. This written statement must be submitted to the records office no later than the first day of classes of the next semester.  Upon review of the Suspension Committee, notification will be done before the end of the Add Period. The decision by the committee to continue enrollment will not restore financial aid or veterans benefits lost for lack of satisfactory progress.

Graduation

The college sponsors graduation ceremonies a minimum of one time per year. Participation in the formal graduation is an option the student may choose, and fees will be assessed on the cost of caps and gowns and other materials necessary. Information regarding caps, gowns, invitations, and graduation exercises will be mailed to eligible students within the first week of May.

Withdrawals

A student wishing to withdraw from the college or a course should first contact the faculty advisor to review the situation and/or to inform the advisor. The student should complete a Change of Schedule form which must be signed by the advisor and returned to the Office of Student Services. Following this procedure will protect the student's privileges of re-admission, the assignment of representative grades, and the transfer of credits. Any student who discontinues his or her work without formal withdrawal does so at the risk of having registration privileges withdrawn. It is also the student's responsibility to follow this procedure in order to be eligible for designated refunds and financial aid.

Note: Pell grants require 60 percent attendance of the semester.

Withdrawal Period: The withdrawal period shall be that period during which a student, with the permission of the faculty advisor, may withdraw from courses without academic penalty.

A student withdrawing from a course up to midterm will be assigned a "W". A grade of "W" will be assigned after midterm only if the student has instructor-documented satisfactory progress.  A grade of "W" may be assigned for a student withdrawal after midterm when the student is not passing the course. A grade of "Q" may be assigned for excessive absences without withdrawal.

Students should note on the semester calendar the last date to withdraw. After this date, students may not withdraw from class.
