If there is a question or challenge of a policy by the student, it should be forwarded to the Program Administrator and the CTE Advisory Board (PEAC) for review.

Course waivers are discussed as part of the Introduction to CTE class. For details on courses that can be waived and the document requirements please see the Waiving Requirements document [Attach pdf].

The CTE program, comprised of non credit classes, does not issue incompletes.
Should a student enrolled in one of the non-credit CTE classes at South Seattle College fail to attain the delineated course outcomes/competencies as outlined per course, the instructor may indicate that person did not pass and will need to retake the class. The decision of whether a student satisfactorily completes a given class (and designated competencies) rests solely with the professional judgment of the course instructor.
If a CTE class has any mandatory “in person” meeting times, full participation at these class sessions is required to complete the competencies for the class. If time is missed, the student will need to retake the class. All mandatory dates and times will be given to the student prior to registering for the class.

Special Note:
Instructors are compensated on the basis of enrolled students in a given class and are not obligated to work with a student who does not satisfactorily complete the course work (or demonstrate the competencies) beyond that given class schedule.

Retaking CTE Class:
Students who fail to complete a class on time will be required to retake that class until all requirements are satisfactorily met. There will be a “retake” fee charged for retaking that class. [Attach pdf]

It the student feels they will not have the capacity complete the class, they may request in writing, during the four day grace period from the day the class officially started, to drop the class for a refund less the $6 administrative fee.

Refunds or Incomplete
At South Seattle College we are not able to offer refunds for CTE classes after the first five days of class have passed, so please take a look at the syllabus that is posted to see if you will have the time to complete this class. We also are not able to give “incompletes”. If you are unable to complete the class, you will have the option of retaking the class at a reduced rate next time it is offered.

South Seattle College reserves the right to cancel a class 24 hours prior to the start date due to low enrollment, adverse weather or extenuating circumstances. Students will be contacted by e-mail or the phone numbers listed at time of registration.
