    • Textbooks  Prior to the start of classes each year the faculty reviews and selects textbooks that meet the needs of thecourses they teach. In some cases, textbooks may change from one year to the next, or a given book may bereleased in a new edition. It is the responsibility of the student to purchase all assigned books. The required textbooks for the fullprogram costs approximately $500.00. At the present time, the State of Georgia reimburses textbook expensesin the amount of $100.00 per semester; therefore, students who remain in the program will, over time, recovertheir initial outlay. Students may choose, at their own option, to purchase other reference books to assist them in theirstudies. Questions concerning the potential value of any reference should be referred to the Program Director.

    • MOULTRIE TECHNICAL COLLEGE RADIOLOGY PROGRAMStudents are expected to be punctual and attend all classes for which they are registered. Each studentshould recognize at the beginning of his or her postsecondary career that a mature acceptance of his orher responsibilities is a requisite for reasonable accomplishment in postsecondary work: this appliesparticularly in the area of class attendance. Instructors will keep an accurate record of class attendance.Students anticipating an absence or tardiness should contact the instructor in advance or providenotification as soon as possible. It is the responsibility of the student to account for missed instructionaltime and to arrange for make-up work at the convenience of the instructor.Failure to maintain contact with the instructor - either by attending classes, submitting assignments,and/or contacting the instructor (either in person, or by telephone, or email) may result in a failinggrade(s).Some programs and courses at MTC may have more demanding attendance requirements due to thenature of the course or program. These requirements are stated in an approved program handbook,course syllabus, or contract executed with the student.Class attendance is calculated from the first officially scheduled class meeting to the last scheduledmeeting.A student who has combined absences and tardies greater than 10% of the scheduled class time forwhich the student is registered may be subject to any or all of the following consequences at any timeduring the semester: Suspension from a class or program; Dismissal from a class or program; Ineligibility to enroll the following semester.See the Moultrie Technical College Student Handbook for more information regarding attendance.WithdrawalIf a student decides to withdraw from the class, he/she must complete the necessary paperwork before anofficial withdrawal can occur. It is imperative that the student contact the instructor upon deciding towithdraw. Any student withdrawing before midterm will receive a grade of “W”. If a course is dropped forany reason after midterm, the student will receive a grade of “WF” (Withdraw Failing). “WF” has zeroquality points and will be calculated in the grade point average (GPA). “WP” (Withdraw Passing) isconsidered only as a result to extenuating circumstances and if academic performance is passing.Academic Integrity Cheating and plagiarism are unacceptable. Cheating includes any attempt to defraud, deceive, or mislead an instructor in arriving at an honest grade assessment. Plagiarism is a form of cheating that involves presenting the ideas of another as your original ideas.233Revised 2012
