4.19 Guarantee of Educational Effectiveness
last revised: Aug-2010
Richland Community College, as an expression of confidence in the educational programs of the College, shall guarantee to the public the educational effectiveness of both its transfer and technical programs and instruction.
The guarantee(s) shall occur as follows:
- Richland Community College shall guarantee the transferability of pre-baccalaureate (university-parallel) credit courses to senior Illinois colleges and universities for each student who completes a designated transfer degree. If such appropriately approved courses and credits do not fully transfer, the College shall refund to the graduate who has completed the degree the tuition paid for the non-transferring course credits.
- Richland Community College shall guarantee the technical competence needed for entry into the technical employment position for each student who completes the appropriate Associate in Applied Science degree or certificate. An Associate in Applied Science degree or certificate graduate who is judged by his/her employer to be lacking in the technical or the general educational skills necessary for entry to the position shall be provided up to nine (9) tuition-free credit hours of additional skill training in the program completed by the graduate.
The President or designee shall be authorized to establish procedures and guidelines under which these guarantees shall apply.
