Registrar


My name is Suzann Culpepper and I am the Registrar here at Albany Technical College. My department is responsible for pre-registering students, transcript services, and graduation. Keep in mind that you can only drop and add a class during the first five days of the term. You can change a class, provided there are seats available and the instructor agrees for you to enter the class. When you pre-register for your last class, you will be just two semesters away from graduating. It is important that you apply for graduation especially if you plan to walk in the ceremony. You may request official transcripts from my department by completing the form found on the Albany Technical College website. We are here to help you with your needs, so come and see us in the Kirkland Administration Building.

FERPA: Your Legal Rights as a Student
Albany Technical College will not release information about you, your whereabouts, your grades, or your progress in classes to anyone but you.  Please make sure your parents, family, and friends understand that if they have questions about your records, they must ask you, not the college.

This is a brief summary of your rights under The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), the federal law that governs release of and access to student education records. These rights include:

  • The right to inspect and review your education record within a reasonable time after the college receives a request for access. If you want to review your record, contact the Office of Registration and Records to make appropriate arrangements.

  • The right to request an amendment of your education record if you believe it is inaccurate or misleading. If you feel there is an error in your record, you should submit a statement to the director of registration and records, clearly identifying the part of the record you want changed and why you believe it is inaccurate or misleading. The director will notify you of his or her decision and advise you regarding appropriate steps if you do not agree with the decision.

  • The right to consent to disclosure of personally identifiable information contained in your education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception that permits disclosure without consent is disclosure to school officials with "legitimate educational interests." A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official has "need to know" information from your education record in order to fulfill his or her official responsibilities. Examples of people who may have access, depending on their official duties, and only within the context of those duties, include college faculty and staff, agents of the institution, students employed by the institution or who serve on official institutional committees, and representatives of agencies under contract with the college.

  • The right to file a complaint with the U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the college to comply with the requirements of FERPA.

  • If you would like someone to have access to your records at Albany Technical College, please fully complete the Request for Release of Information form and return it to the Registrar’s office.

Drop/Add

The Drop Period (the first three instructional days of the term) and the Add Period (the first seven calendar days of the term) are different. A student may drop or add a course(s) without academic penalty during the drop period designated in the official school calendar. However, progression rate and financial aid eligibility will be affected. A student may also add a course(s) during the add period designated in the official school calendar. Dropped courses after the end of the drop period will be assigned a grade of “W” with either F (failing), or P (passing). The WF grade counts as a failing grade. Any student requesting to drop/add classes must see his/her instructor and program advisor. There are no refunds for withdrawing from classes after the third day of the semester.

 

STEPS TO DROP/ADD COURSES
The procedure for changes in schedules should be followed as outlined below.

  1. The Drop/Add form must be obtained in the Student Services office
  2. The student must take the completed drop/add form to the Student Service office. Financial Aid will determine how the drop/add will affect the student's financial aid award and whether the financial aid will cover all costs resulting from the change.
  3. A new schedule will be available for the student to print via Bannerweb. The student is responsible for any additional costs.
  4. A Drop/Add Form should be used for any student dropping a class during the drop/add period.

Advisement

Your program advisor will guide you in selecting classes each semester and making sure you are meeting the requirements of your program. Advisors are assigned based on a student's acceptance status and program of study. Your advisor's name is listed on your acceptance letter. Each semester you must meet with your advisor to schedule classes for the upcoming term.




Scheduling Classes

College can be exciting and overwhelming when it comes to scheduling classes. Your class schedule is critical to your success, and you will need the support and guidance from your academic advisor. Consider the following to help you map out a schedule that best serves your specific needs. 

Program Requirements
Because Albany Technical College offers a wide variety of degree, diploma, and technical certificates, different students may be required to complete different courses for their program of study. You can find the program descriptions in our College Catalog, as well as on the Areas of Study section of the Admissions web page.

Course Selection
College courses require good study habits, and you will need to learn to balance your school, home and work life when planning your college schedule. it is a good idea to ensure the types of classes you are taking are going to fit your unique schedule so you can be successful.

Course Load
To be considered a full-time student, you must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours. Try to balance your schedule so you are not too overwhelmed. Think about your commitments outside of school. Do you have children? Work responsibilities? Other activities that take up your time? Do not take more classes than you can reasonably expect to be successful in or you will risk lowering your GPA or losing financial aid. Manage your time wisely!

Time of Day
Albany Technical College offers classes on many different days and at many different times, as well as, online so you should be able to find a schedule that works for you. See your program advisor for assistance with creating your class schedule.

After business hours, contact Brown Security at 886-9800 (Monday through Friday from 10:30 p.m. to 6:00 a.m. and weekends). At the Randolph County Learning Center, call 229/732-5829 and after hours call 911.

This procedure is not intended to impede the reporting of an emergency directly to the appropriate party (i.e. Police Department, Fire Department or Ambulance, etc.). In extreme emergencies, please call 911 and immediately report the situation to an Albany Technical College staff member.

The college maintains an excellent working relationship with its local police departments. Crimes involving major property loss or a felony are reported to the city police for prosecution.

In accordance with the 1991 Student’s Right-to-Know and Campus Security Act, each year Albany Technical Collegepublished its crime statistics for the three previous years:

As students, employees or guests, you can, to a great extent, add to or detract from our efforts to keep criminal activity on the campuses to a minimal level. To that end, here are a few safety tips, which we hope you will read and follow:


DO
 Report all crimes or suspicious activity to campus security or the police.

DO Mark personal property such as books, calculators, cell phones, adaptive equipment, etc., with a secret pin number or some form of identification.

DO Protect your personal property just as you would protect your money or other valuables.

DON’T leave personal items unattended, including books, jewelry and backpacks.

DON’T leave valuable items on or in your car.

DON’T leave purses in desks or file cabinets unless they are locked.

DON’T leave personal items unattended on restroom vanities.

 

DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICY
In accordance with Public Law 101-226, Section 22, Albany Technical College declares itself a Drug and Alcohol-Free campus. No student may engage in the unlawful manufacture, possession, use or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol on the college’s property or as part of any of its sponsored activities. Such lawful activity may be considered grounds for serious punitive action, including expulsion. The policy extends to vehicles, as well as clinical affiliates. Specifically, in the case of a drug-related offense, the student shall be suspended for the remainder of the semester and forfeit any academic credit for that period.

 

WEAPONS POLICY
It is unlawful for an individual to bring, possess or have under such person’s control any explosive compound, firearm or knife designed for the purpose of offense or defense while on the Albany Tech campuses. The provisions of this policy also include, but are not limited to, any function or event of, or at any of the State’s technical colleges, its campuses, satellites, buildings, vehicles or involving its employees or students. Having a license to carry a pistol is no justification under this policy. However, these provisions do not apply to those persons who are specifically exempted by law, including school personnel who are authorized to carry weapons, including campus police or security officers, state or federal prosecuting attorneys, federal law enforcement officers and public safety directors.

For more information about these policies, please refer to the Student Handbook.
