Student Right-to-Know

Student Right-to-Know

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 retention rates, and campus crime statistics and more available to enrolled students 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.

Drug/Alcohol Prevention 
GTC provides notification, encouragement, and contact information for students via the Course Catalog and Student Handbook 2014-2015 pg. 48 to several support agencies which provide counseling services for alcohol and drug abuse. Click here for the course catalog.

All of the events Gwinnett Technical Student Life promotes are drug and alcohol-free. Each year they provide at least one program that is dedicated to educating our students about drug and alcohol related issues. GTC student leaders are involved in designing the program that they  feel will best reach our student body. This year they hosted a drug and alcohol awareness event that included community partners and served over 1,000 people.   For more information, please contact the Student Life office.

Counseling Services: Gwinnett Technical College does not provide counseling services. However, there are resources in the local area. Please contact United Way at 211 for information on resources concerning alcohol abuse, drug abuse, domestic violence, sexual abuse, and general mental health issues. Students are also encouraged to contact Gwinnett Helpline at 770-995-3339 during office hours. Gwinnett Helpline is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Students and their families will assume full responsibility for such services.

Retention
The required retention rate in the table below is calculated from Fall 2011 to Fall 2012 and Fall 2012 to Fall 2013 for first-time, first-term, degree-seeking students. This does not take into account all students at Gwinnett Tech.  The Technical College System of Georgia retention rate for all regular admitted is also provided.

Graduation Rate and Transfer-Out Rate
Federal regulations specify how to calculate the graduation and transfer rates. The rates represent students who started at the college in the fall of 2010. The study includes all first-time students who enrolled full-time that fall and were seeking to earn a degree, diploma or certificate at the college. The graduation rate is the percentage of these students who graduated from Gwinnett Technical within three years. The transfer-out rate is the percentage of these students who did not graduate from Gwinnett Technical College, but instead transferred to another college or university within three years.

These rates do not report on all students at Gwinnett Technical College.

The graduation rate that is calculated by IPEDS is only reflective of the 2010 cohort of full-time, first-time degree/certificate seeking students who complete their program within 150% of the normal completion time.  On average, one-third of the college’s students are full-time, and the majority are part-time.

*Data on graduation rates for Pell and Loan students is based on an average of students that graduated with an associate degree and an associate degree.  This cohort is based on students enrolled for the first time in college.  Data from Complete College Georgia, 2013.

The graduation rate that is calculated by TCSG is based on all students (full time and part time) enrolled in an award program (TCC, Diploma, or Degree) and in at least one vocation course who left the college as a graduate or leaver (all leavers) during a 2 year period (the year shown and the previous year).

Campus Security
Policies concerning security and safety at Gwinnett Technical College can be found in the 2014-2015 college catalog and handbook on p. 56 http://www.gwinnetttech.edu/docs/catalog_1415/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.
