Students enrolled in NETC's Continuing Education courses are subject to compliance with admission procedures that may include assessments, prerequisite courses or skills, or documentation of eligibility. S.C. law requires that all students who register for healthcare courses with a clinical component must undergo a criminal record check. Information regarding costs and procedures are provided by the Continuing Education Division.
Clinical facilities require that students who register for healthcare courses with a clinical component must provide criminal background check, health information and/or drug test results. The Continuing Education Division provides information regarding cost and procedures for each class.
The Continuing Education Division determines the fees for each activity. Tuition is based on costs of instruction, materials, facilities and administration. Free tuition for senior citizens applies only to individuals older than 60 years of age and only on a space-available, cost-recovery basis. These applicants must meet admission requirements and pay all applicable fees. Senior citizens who are employed full-time are not eligible for tuition waivers.
Refund of 100% will be issued for classes, seminars or workshop canceled by NETC due to insufficient enrollment, inclement weather or similar situations. NETC reserves the right to cancel any class due to insufficient enrollment.
Registered students who withdraw from a class/seminar/workshop at least 24 hours (one working day) prior to the first class meeting will receive a refund of 100%. Class is defined as an activity that requires two or more meetings.
Students who withdraw must submit written, e-mail or phone request for the refund to be eligible for refund. The request must be made at the time of withdrawal.
Students may request transcripts for Continuing Education training by submitting a written request to Northeastern Technical College's Continuing Education Division, 1201 Chesterfield Highway, Cheraw, SC 29520. NETC manages these transcripts in accordance with Federal Education Rights and Privacy Act.
Northeastern Technical College has adopted the nationally recognized standard of Continuing Education Units (CEUs) as a means of recording and accounting for certain non-curricular courses, programs, and activities.
A CEU requires 10 contact hours of participation in an organized adult or continuing education activity properly sponsored or directed, with qualified instruction. A permanent record of CEUs earned by each student with fractions of hours to one decimal is maintained. Thus, a student satisfactorily completing 15 classroom hours receives 1.5 CEUs. Personal interest courses do not earn CEUs. In addition, one certificate of course completion is available upon request from the Office of Continuing Education.
