Curriculum and Non-Credit Student Disclosures
Students attempting to enroll in a Health Technologies program at Forsyth Tech or other credit granting program at another institution must ensure to select a Health Education program that does not overlap with their existing schedule of courses. Furthermore, Forsyth Tech students must refer to their program’s Minimum Admission Review (MAR) packet to ensure all deadlines are properly verified and recorded.
The Health Education Department of Forsyth Tech cannot be held responsible for students who fail to meet the Medical Training Certification requirement. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure all courses and certifications are taken within an appropriate time frame. If the Health Education Department does not have a Nursing Assistant I or II course available for enrollment, students will have to find one from the list of approved programs provided in the MAR packet.
Due to regulatory standards established by the NC Department of Health Service Regulation (DHSR) and the NC Board of Nursing, once a class is full no additional students will be allowed to enroll into it and a different class from the available listing options will need to be selected. If a class is cancelled, every effort will be made to discuss with the student of alternate class dates and times.
Sponsored Student Disclosure
Students being sponsored by a third party and/or workforce partner can request to have a seat reserved for a class up to 2 weeks prior to the start date of the class, at which point the hold will be uplifted to allow other students to enroll and for the class to meet its maximum capacity. If a hold is uplifted, the student will be required to select an alternate date and time to begin the desired course of study. Extenuating circumstances will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
