Student Right-To-Know and Consumer Information

The Student-Right-To-Know and Campus Security Act is an amendment to the Higher Education Act of 1992. The act requires colleges and universities to make graduation/completion rates, transfer-out rates, and campus crime statistics and more available to enrolled student and prospective students. The required information is listed below:

Vaccinations and Immunizations
While GTC does not require vaccinations or record of immunization for admissions, proof of certain vaccinations and immunization records are required after admission for some programs, such as early childhood education or healthcare programs, where students would be doing clinical externships in childcare or medical facilities.

Campus Security
Policies concerning security and safety at Gwinnett Technical College can be found in the 2013-2014 college catalog and handbook on p. 57 or using the link below.

http://www.gwinnetttech.edu/docs/catalog_1314/Student_Info.pdf

Campus public safety is provided by Gwinnett County police officers during normal operating hours. Police officers are responsible for a full range of public safety services including all crime reports, investigations, and traffic control/accident reports; enforcement of laws concerning use of alcoholic beverages, controlled substances and weapons on campus; and all other incidents requiring police assistance or emergency medical care. However, police officers are not equipped to assist students with automobile difficulties, such as dead batteries and keys locked in the car.

Each year Gwinnett Technical College publishes specific crime-related information in accordance with the guidelines of the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Security Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act (formerly the Campus Security Act of 1990). This report is available in the office of the chief of security/campus police, located in Building 200, Room 212.

Any student who observes what appears to be suspicious or illegal activity, has a concern about personal safety on campus, wishes to discuss campus safety and security, or wishes to report an incident which may require administrative or security intervention may do so by contacting the chief of security/campus police, 678-226-6293, Building 200, Room 212.

Students may also contact the director of Human Resources, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., Friday, 678-226-6697; the evening building administrator, 6:00 p.m. until closing, Monday through Thursday, 678-226-6484; or the Saturday building administrator, 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., 678-226-6600.

Drug and Alcohol Abuse Prevention Program

Standards of Conduct

  • Students: No student may engage in the unlawful manufacture, possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs or alcohol while on the property of Gwinnett Tech or while a part of any of its sponsored activities. This policy has been developed in concert with the federal Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act and incorporates the statutory mandates required under the State of Georgia's Drug-Free Postsecondary Education Act of 1990.
  • Employees: The Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG) is committed to providing a working and learning environment that ensures the productivity of TCSG employees as well as the safety and security of all employees, students, contractors, volunteers, and visitors to TCSG worksites and technical college campuses. To this end, it is the policy of the State Board of the Technical College System of Georgia that all System worksites, including all associated technical colleges, shall be drug-free pursuant to the provisions of the federal Drug-free Workplace Act of 1988, the Drug-free Public Work Force Act of 1990, and applicable State law.

For more information on this policy, please visit the following link.

https://tcsg.edu/tcsgpolicy/docs/03-01-07.html

Legal Sanctions
Students are subject to all laws, the enforcement of which is the responsibility of duly constituted authorities. When students violate laws, they may incur penalties prescribed by legal authorities. In such instances, college discipline will be initiated if the presence of the student on campus is considered a possible threat to persons or property, or if that person's presence may disrupt the educational process of the college. However, when a student's violation of the law also adversely affects the college's recognized educational objectives, or violates the college's Student Code of Conduct, the college will enforce its own regulations. When students violate college regulations, they are subject to disciplinary action by the college whether or not their conduct violates the law.

State and Federal Laws and Regulations
Due to the volume of statutes, we are unable to list them all. For a complete listing, please visit the links below.

Health Risk
Drugs and alcohol can both have negative effects on your health and well-being even if used at small levels and/or for short period of time. For more information on the health risk associated with substance abuse, please visit the National Institute on Drug Abuse link provided below.

http://www.drugabuse.gov/drugs-abuse/commonly-abused-drugs/health-effects

Counseling, Treatment, and Rehabilitation Services
As part of our commitment to our students, Gwinnett Tech offers the Life Balance Program (LBP) through Cameron and Associates, Inc. to all students, their family, faculty, and staff. This program (up to four free sessions per issue) is designed to help students balance personal and school life including drug and alcohol counseling. For additional information, please visit the Customer Care Center or call (404)845-3727.

Additional information on counseling, treatment, and rehabilitation services can be found on the following websites.

http://www.drugabuse.gov/

http://www.samhsa.gov/

Sanctions for Violations
Any student found to have committed the following misconduct is subject to the disciplinary sanctions as outlined in the disciplinary sanctions section. Questions on the interpretation of academic misconduct and policies shall be referred to the Vice President of Academic Affairs, while questions on the interpretation of student conduct other than academic misconduct shall be referred to the Vice President of Student Affairs.

Drugs, Alcohol and Other Substances
Substances referred to under this policy include all illegal drugs, alcoholic beverages, and misused legal drugs (both prescription and over-the-counter).

  1. Alcohol: Students must comply with all state and federal laws regulating alcohol as well as TCSG Policy II.C.6, Alcohol on Campus. Alcoholic beverages may not be served or sold at any student sponsored function. Students being in a state of intoxication on technical college premises or at technical college-sponsored or supervised functions (including off-campus functions), internships, externships, practicum, clinical sites, co-operative or academic sponsored programs or activities or in a technical college-owned vehicle is prohibited.
  2. Controlled substances, illegal drugs and drug paraphernalia: The technical college prohibits possession, use, sale, or distribution of any controlled substance, illegal drugs, or drug paraphernalia except as expressly permitted by law. Any influence which may be attributed to the use of drugs or of alcoholic beverages shall not in any way limit the responsibility of the individual for the conduct or consequences of his/her actions.

Disciplinary Sanctions
Based on the severity of the incident, the Vice President for Student Affairs may take one of two actions:

  1. After a determination that a student has violated the Student Code of Conduct, the Vice President for Student Affairs or the technical college president's designee may impose, without referral to the Hearing Body, one or more of the following sanctions. Notification shall be sent to the student and the person(s) who initially filed the complaint.
    1. Restitution – A student who has committed an offense against property may be required to reimburse the technical college or other owner for damage to or misappropriation of such property. Any such payment in restitution shall be limited to the actual cost of repair or replacement.
    2. Reprimand – A written reprimand may be given to any student. Such a reprimand does not restrict the student in any way, but it signifies to the student that he/she is in effect being given another chance to conduct himself/herself as a proper member of the technical college community, and that any further violation may result in more serious sanctions.
    3. Restriction – A restriction upon a student's privileges for a period of time may be imposed. This restriction may include but is not limited to denial of the right to represent the technical college in any way, denial of use of facilities, alteration or revocation of parking privileges, or restrictions from participating in extracurricular activities.
    4. Disciplinary Probation – Continued enrollment of a student on probation may be conditioned upon adherence to specified terms. Any student placed on probation will be notified of the terms and length of probation in writing. Any conduct determined after due process to be in violation of these terms while on probation may result in the imposition of more serious disciplinary sanctions, as specified by the terms of probation.
  2. After a determination that a student has violated the Student Code of conduct, the Vice President for Student Affairs or the technical college president's designee may recommend the imposition of one of the following sanctions if appropriate. The Vice President for Student Affairs' recommendation will be forwarded to the Hearing Body, which may impose one or more of the following sanctions, as well as those described in section VI.C.1 above, following a hearing. A copy of the written recommendation shall be provided to the student and the person filing the complaint.
    1. Disciplinary Suspension – If a student is suspended, he/she is separated from the technical college for a stated period of time. Conditions of reinstatement, if any, must be stated in the notice of suspension.
    2. Disciplinary Expulsion – Removal and exclusion from the technical college, technical college controlled facilities, programs, events, and activities. A record of the reason for the student's dismissal is maintained by Vice President for Student Affairs or the technical college president's designee. Students who have been dismissed from the technical college for any reason may apply in writing to the Vice President for Student Affairs for reinstatement twelve (12) months following the expulsion. If approval for reinstatement is granted, the student will be placed on disciplinary probation for a specified term. The probationary status may be removed at the end of the specified term at the discretion of the Vice President for Student Affairs or the technical college president's designee.
    3. Where a student has been expelled or suspended three times from the same or different colleges in the Technical College System of Georgia in the past seven years, the student will not be permitted to register at any college in the Technical College System of Georgia for a period of ten years after the most recent expulsion/suspension.

Additional information on sanctions for violations can also be found in the student handbook or online at: http://www.gwinnetttech.edu/content.cfm?PageCode=catalog
