The CTE Advisory committee has put into place the following guidelines for the waiver of classes in South Seattle Community College’s CTE program. Our goal is to avoid redundancy without compromising our commitment to training top quality teachers with good skills.
If South waives a class the competencies will need to be demonstrated either during a South-supervised Practicum and/or through an accepted course documented on a transcript along with a course description and syllabus.
See Transcript Review (PDF) - detailed information about course waiving.
Incompletes/Course Retake Policy
Teacher Candidates Not Completing Course Work
Should a teacher candidate enrolled in one of the non-credit CTE classes at South 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 teacher candidate 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 teacher candidate will need to retake the class. All mandatory dates and times will be given to the teacher candidate prior to registering for the class.
Retaking CTE Class: Retaking a class will be when that class is next offered (classes are usually scheduled to be offered once per year). Teacher candidates who fail to complete a class on time will be required to retake that class until all requirements are satisfactorily met. The fee will be 50% of the class fee and 100% of the materials fee.
Special Note: Instructors are compensated on the basis of enrolled teacher candidates in a given class and are not obligated to work with a teacher candidate who does not satisfactorily complete the course work (or demonstrate the competencies) beyond that given class schedule.
Please contact the Continuing Education office as soon as possible. If cancelling within two business days before the first class meets, all but a processing fee will be refunded. If choosing to transfer to another class, the $ processing fee will be waived. Class and material fees can not be refunded after the first session of a course has started.
