Student Suspension and Dismissal Guidelines
Attendance Regulations Violations Guidelines

Lanier Technical College adheres to the attendance information noted under the section on attendance regulations. However, some programs' attendance policies are more stringent because they are based on licensing requirements.

Three incidents of being tardy for class equates to an absence. When a student has only two more absences before violating the attendance policy, the instructor will provide a written (hand delivered, mailed, or electronic mail) warning that dismissal from the course for excessive absences is near, with a copy to the academic supervisor.

Attendance Regulations Violations Procedures

  1. When a student's program allows only two more absences before violation of the program's attendance policy, the instructor will provide a written warning. This warning should be via the Attendance Regulations Violation Form and may be transmitted by E-mail or hard copy.
  2. The instructor will meet with the student to discuss the reasons for absences and/or incidents of tardiness. This meeting should include development of a plan to prevent additional absences and/or tardiness. This plan may include referral to the Coordinator of Disability Services or periodic follow-up meetings with an academic administrator.
  3. If the student is absent two more times, the instructor will refer the student to the academic supervisor for approval of dismissal action. Under exceptional circumstances, the academic supervisor may decide not to dismiss the student but may impose other sanctions.
  4. As a part of the dismissal meeting with the student, the instructor or academic supervisor should discuss re-enrollment options for the following quarter.

Code of Conduct Violations Procedures

  1. The instructor will refer any student who violates any of the academically-related code of conduct actions to the academic supervisor. The instructor will refer any student who violates any of the other code of conduct actions to the Vice President for Student Affairs.
  2. The appropriate administrator will meet with the student to discuss the action and investigate the allegations as necessary.
  3. Depending upon the severity and the number of occurrences of the action, the administrator will impose appropriate sanctions (verbal or written warning, probation, suspension, or dismissal).
  4. The administrator will document the process and notify the instructor of the action.
