DISTANCE EDUCATION

Southeastern College is approved by FL-SARA to participate in the National Council for State Authorization Reciprocity Agreements (NC-SARA) http://nc-sara.org/ NC-SARA is a voluntary, regional approach to state oversight of postsecondary distance education.

In order to comply with regulations regarding distance education, Southeastern College is required to make the following disclosure to applicants and students completing their coursework outside of the state of Florida, including field experiences (e.g. internships, practicums, clinical placements), when their program of study customarily leads to professional licensure.

SARA has no effect on state professional licensure requirements. It is advised that applicants seek guidance from the appropriate licensing agency in your home state before beginning any academic program leading to licensure or certification. If you are unable to locate information about professional licensure, or have difficulty obtaining the information you need, please contact the academic advisor for your program.

DISTANCE EDUCATION COMPLAINT PROCESS

Southeastern College Grievance Procedure as stated in the Southeastern College Catalog https://www.sec.edu/catalogs/.

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES

If Southeastern College is forced to take action against a student, it still believes strongly that every student has a right to procedural due process in which a student has notice and an opportunity to be heard. If the administration has to take disciplinary measures against a student or other action related to a student, the student may appeal the decision to the Grievance Committee.

Students are encouraged to resolve problems through normal administrative channels. A Request for a Grievance Committee Hearing form must be submitted to the Student Services Department by or on Thursday no later than 5 p.m. in order to hold a grievance hearing on the following Tuesday. The Grievance hearings are held on a Tuesday immediately after day classes have concluded. Requests for a Grievance Committee hearing that are received immediately prior to or during a student break are recognized as received the week following the break.

The voting members of the Grievance Committee consist of two (2) faculty members, two (2) staff members, and one (1) student. The voting members of the committee are non-biased participants. The Director of Student Services is the facilitator/moderator of the grievance hearing and a non-voting member of the proceedings. The Panel will hear evidence, ask questions, review the catalog/handbook policies, deliberate and render an advisory ruling that, upon approval by the Office of the Executive Director, will become binding upon the administration as well as the student who filed the grievance.
