Make-up Fees

  • Make up fees $10/hr ($45 for a full A/B class)
  • If you fail to cancel and do not attend, you will be charged a $25 no-show fee.
  • Make-up fees are not included in your tuition-financing plan. Payment must be made to the Controller and can be by check, money order, or credit card. Checks and money orders can be submitted in the payment box in the Student Communication Hallway. Neither the receptionist nor the instructor can accept payment.
  • All make-up/no-show fees must be made in full to be financially eligible to receive your transcript.

Unless cancellation is absolutely necessary, we will hold classes as scheduled. When the weather and roads are questionable in some areas, but do not clearly warrant our closing the school, we ask students to use news reports in their area to inform their decision whether to attend.

If you decide not to come to a class and the class was not officially cancelled, you are required to make-up the class in your own time, at your own expense. If a class is officially cancelled, the school will schedule a free make-up day. Generally, the make-up day will be on the Friday following the cancelled day.

Time Clock Policies and Procedures

Students must clock in and out in accordance with their assigned schedules. Time (up to 4.5 classroom hours for 1 class day) is earned when a student creates a “pair” of punches (in and out). For example, if a student fails to clock out at the end of their class, there will not be a “pair” of punches and no time can be awarded for that period.

Clocking In

Time clock restrictions will prevent students from clocking in earlier than 20 minutes prior to their scheduled start time. The earliest clock-in time for morning students is 7:55am. The earliest clock-in time for afternoon students is 12:55pm. The earliest clock-in time for evening students is 5:40pm. The clock-in time for Saturday students’ morning shift is 7:40am. The earliest clock-in time for Saturday students’ afternoon shift is 12:55pm. Actual time clock availability may vary, depending on the instructors’ and rooms’ availability. Students should hold their Student ID card before the scanner located at the computer terminal in the classroom. A confirmation will appear on screen. If you are suspended from class for any reason, a notice will appear on screen.

Late Arrivals/Early Departures

Students may only clock in BEFORE class begins. After the beginning of class, students should take their seats and join the classroom activity that is underway. At the end of class, the student should verify that their instructor noted their late arrival. Administration will manually enter your arrival time. Additionally, students may only clock out AFTER class ends. Students leaving before the end of class should do so as quietly as possible. Instructors will notate your departure time. Administration will manually enter your departure time.

Clocking Out

After class ends, students should hold their student ID card before the scanner located at the computer terminal in the classroom. A confirmation will appear on screen.

Taking Attendance

Students’ clock punches should match attendance recorded by instructors. If a student is not in the classroom when roll is taken (be it at the start of class or after a break), or departs before the end of class, it is recorded as a tardy. Administration will manually modify time to reconcile with the instructor’s record.

Students must not clock in for other students. This is a violation of our conduct policy and is subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.

If you lose your student ID, please contact the Student Administrator for a replacement. The replacement fee is $10.

Make-up Classes

In an effort to accommodate the needs of students, TLC offers a variety of class schedules. Each student is encouraged to choose the schedule that best fits into their life. Instructors and resources are allocated for each of your scheduled classes. We strongly encourage you to attend your scheduled classes. Making up a class earns you credit for the hours missed, but does not erase the absence. It is your responsibility to keep track of tardiness and absences.

How to Make-up Classes

The standard schedule for the make-up room is Tuesday through Friday from 10am – 6pm, with the exception of holidays and occasional classes or workshops. Although extended times may occasionally be available, those are subject to change at any time. Space in the make-up room is limited and reservations are required. Students will find a sign-up list in the Student Communication Hallway. Make-up Class forms are available in the hallway. Completed forms should be turned in to your student administrator.

•Students are to find the day that works best for their schedule and reserve their spot by signing up in an available spot on the date of their choosing.

•Students are to bring the appropriate materials to their make-up class, per their school packet. Students may bring a laptop, tablet, or other device to access online lectures and demonstrations.

•Students are to report to the lobby at their scheduled time. The MTI-on-duty will admit students to the make-up room in-between clinic sessions. Students may not enter if the clinic door is closed.

•Students must complete the make-up the time for any 1 class in the same business day. No partial make-ups are allowed. •During their make-up time, students must complete a make-up form and turn it in to the MTIon-duty.

•Assignments are due the next day the student returns to class or the day they make up the corresponding class, whichever is earliest. A late penalty will be added to any assignments submitted after that time.

•Quizzes, exams, practical exams, touch assessments, and spot checks are due within 2 weeks of the missed class or when students make up the corresponding class, whichever is earliest. The standard late penalty applies to any work submitted after the designated make-up date. Exceptions: Our curriculum is structured so that massage techniques build from a foundation established in the first quarter on. Each Touch Assessment, Practical Exam, and Spot Check are critical milestones as they give instructors an opportunity to assess a student’s knowledge and competency of the techniques. For the safety of receivers, students must take and pass benchmarks in order (see Academics, Deadlines).

Exceptions

The following classes must be made up with a class. Students absent from the following classes must refer to the class schedules available in the Student Communication Hallway or on our website under Student Resources. Once the student finds the class that works for their schedule, they should contact the Student Administrator to request a spot with the other program. Space is not guaranteed. The Student Administrator will confirm the reservation.

Academics Turning in Assignments Students are to turn in assignments to their instructor by the start of class on the day the assignment is due. Failure to do so will result in a 20-point late deduction. If absent, the assignment is due by the start of class on the next day they attend.

To ensure timely and proper processing, students should turn in late work to their instructor or to the MTI-on-duty during their scheduled make-up time, whichever is applicable.
