CHANGES IN COURSE FORMAT

As a means of improving instruction and permitting students a longer time period in which to complete lengthy assignments, the School of Education began scheduling many education courses in a semester-long (16 week) format beginning January 2015.  (This is the same format utilized for a majority of the courses on the College's main campus in Demorest.)

 Student Complaints

Students who have complaints about their Education program or their Piedmont College experience should first direct these to their faculty advisor who, in turn, will refer to the chair of the department in which the program is offered.  The goal is to resolve issues at the lowest level possible. The department chair may choose to interview the student.  The department chair will respond to the student's complaint or concerns via e-mail and/or refer the student to the Dean of Education.
