Reasonable Accommodations

In compliance with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended, and with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), Pike CTC recognizes that qualified students who have been diagnosed or identified as having a learning, physical, or emotional disability are entitled to reasonable accommodations. Pike CTC is committed to making every effort to providing reasonable accommodations.

Reasonable accommodation does not negate requirements for successful completion of a program or adherence to generally acceptable student code of conduct, and adherence to administrative and faculty/staff directions and instructions. In determining Pike CTC’s ability to offer reasonable accommodation to an otherwise qualified student with a disability, documentation concerning the diagnosis may be requested and each request for an accommodation will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Factors to be examined include among others:

the academic and technical standards required for admission or participation in an educational program;

the precise education-related abilities and functional limitations of the student and how those limitations could be overcome with reasonable accommodations;

the effects of the disability could be overcome with reasonable accommodation;

the nature and cost of accommodation required in relation to the school’s financial resources;

other federal, state and local regulatory requirements.

Career and Placement Services

Pike CTC provides career and placement services to students and graduates.

Career aptitude assessments are available for those seeking the right training program or career.

Career skills such as resume writing and interviewing are available. 

Local career opportunities are posted in the school.


Credit for Previous Training Policy

Previous credit earned at other institutions do not transfer. Students that want to switch programs once they have started must withdraw from the current program and start as a new student in the new program. The student transferring to another program would have to complete a withdraw form for the current program and meet all admission requirements for the new program.
