Facilities and Services Available to Students with Disabilities
The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provide comprehensive civil rights and protections for persons with disabilities. “No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the United States . . . shall, solely on the basis of disability, be denied access to, or the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity provided by any institution receiving federal financial assistance.” A “qualified student” is defined as a student . . . “who meets the academic and technical standards required to admission or participation in the education program or activity.” (Source - Rehabilitation Act of 1973 - Section 504)

Bridgerland Applied Technology College may not discriminate in the recruitment, admission, educational process, or treatment of students with disabilities. Students must voluntarily disclose that they have a disability (self-identify), request accommodation, and provide documentation of their disability.

Price of Attendance
BATC maintains the Web page 'Tuition and Fees' (batc.edu/students/tuition), which outlines current tuition rates and fee schedules. Tuition is established by the Utah College of Applied Technology (UCAT) Board, which is based on a per clock hour fee. Books, fees, tools, and/or supplies vary according to the program and estimates are available at my.batc.edu/ICS/Learn_More/. Navigate to Books and Supplies – by Certificate, select the certificate, enter the year, and generate the report.  Required and recommended textbooks and supplemental materials for each course are listed, including, title, author, ISBN (International Standard Book Number), publisher, and price.

Navigate to the program pages here:  batc.edu/programs.
 
Refund Policy, Requirements for Withdrawal and Return of Title IV Financial Aid
BATC’s policy is to treat all students in a fair and equitable manner in assessing tuition, fees, and other charges, and in returning (repayment) unearned tuition, fees, and other charges to students in a timely manner.

Tuition, fees, and other charges are generated at the time of registration for course(s) and are the responsibility of the student. Because students may register for new courses at any time, Title IV Aid, if applicable, is disbursed directly to the student rather than being credited to the student accounts receivable account. The student is responsible to pay BATC for total actual charges, net of scholarships and other credits through whatever means or sources of income available to the student, including but not limited to personal resources, Title IV aid, or other sources.

Prior to officially withdrawing from BATC, students who are considering “withdrawal” from their program and Title IV eligible courses should consult with BATC’s Registrar’s Office and BATC’s Financial Aid Office to learn the financial consequences associated with “withdrawal.” Official notice of withdrawal must be communicated by the student to the Registrar’s Office.

Title IV funds are earned based on the amount of time the student was scheduled to be in attendance. A determination of the earned and unearned portions of Title IV aid as of the date the student ceased attendance will be calculated by the Financial Office at the time of official withdrawal.

Upon official withdrawal by the student, any amount owed by the College to the student will be refunded (repayment) to the student in accordance with BATC’s charges and refund policy. And, any additional amounts owed to BATC by the student will be due and payable immediately.

Notice of Federal Student Financial Aid Penalties for Drug Law Violations
Schools must notify every student upon enrollment information with penalties associated with drug related offenses.  The Higher Education Act of 1965 as amended (HEA) suspends aid eligibility for students who have been convicted under federal or state law of the sale or possession of drugs, if the offense occurred during a period of enrollment for which the student was receiving federal student aid (such as grants, loans or work-study). 
 
When submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) a student is asked: Have you been convicted for the possession or sale of illegal drugs for an offense that occurred while you were receiving federal student aid (such as grants, loans or work-study)?
 
▪ Students will answer “No” if they have never received federal student aid (FSA) or have never had a drug offense that occurred while receiving federal student aid.
 
▪ Students will answer “Yes” if they have a drug conviction for an offense that occurred while receiving federal student aid. The student should complete and submit the application and Federal Student Aid, an Office of the Department of Education, will mail the student a worksheet that will help the student determine if the conviction affects eligibility for aid.  This worksheet may also be available from the BATC Financial Aid Office.
 
▪ Students who are unsure how to answer the question should call 1-800-433-3243.
 
Students with a qualifying drug conviction will receive a “C” code and comment code on his or her Student Aid Report (SAR) and Institutional Student Aid Report (ISIR) that is sent to the school.
 
Penalties, the period of ineligibility for FSA funds, for such convictions is as follows:
  Possession of illegal drugs Sale of illegal drugs
1st  offense 1 year from date of conviction 2 years from date of conviction
2nd offense 2 years from date of conviction Indefinite period
3 + offenses Indefinite period
 
Indefinite period
 
▪ A student who is convicted of both possessing and selling illegal drugs, and the periods of ineligibility are different, the student will be ineligible for the longer period.
 
The BATC Financial Aid Office will provide a student who becomes ineligible for FSA funds due to a drug conviction a clear and conspicuous written notice of the loss of eligibility and methods whereby he or she can become eligible again.  This notice will be provided on a case by case basis.
 
A student may regain eligibility the day after the period of ineligibility ends or when he or she successfully completes a qualified drug rehab program that includes passing two unannounced drug tests given by such a program. Further drug convictions will make the student ineligible again.

Students denied eligibility for an indefinite period can regain eligibility after completing any of the following 3 options:
1)      Successfully completing a rehabilitation program (as described below, which includes passing two unannounced drug tests from such a program;
2)    Having the conviction reversed, set aside, or removed from the student’s record so that fewer than two convictions for sale or three convictions for procession remain on the record; or
3)     Successfully completing two unannounced drug tests which are part of a rehab program (the student does not need to complete the rest of the program).
In such cases, the nature and dates of the remaining convictions will determine when the student regains eligibility. It is the student’s responsibility to certify to the school that he or she has successfully completed the rehabilitation program.
 
Once a student regains eligibility the school may award Pell Grant funds for the current Payment Period in which the student is enrolled.
 
A qualified drug rehab program must include at least two unannounced drug tests and satisfy at least one of the following requirements:
 
▪ Be qualified to receive funds directly or indirectly from a federal, state, or local government program.
▪ Be qualified to receive payment directly or indirectly from a federally or state-licensed insurance company.
▪ Be administered or recognized by a federal, state, or local government agency or court.
▪ Be administered or recognized by a federally or state-licensed hospital, health clinic, or medical doctor.
 
 It is the student’s responsibility to provide documentation to the BATC Financial Aid Office that the student has regained eligibility by completing the above requirements.  It is also the student’s responsibility to provide documentation that confirms that the qualified drug rehabilitation program meets the standards outlined.
 
BATC will advise a student of these requirements when counseling a student who may need to enter such a program.  Any question regarding student certifications for completing such programs, or the qualification of the drug rehabilitation program, must be resolved before eligibility for FSA funds will be reinstated.

Disbursement for Books and Supplies
Students may receive the Federal Pell Grant for enrollment at BATC in eligible certificate programs.  The Pell Grant is disbursed in multiple installments throughout the year to eligible students.

Related expenses may include: tuition and fees; required books, tools, supplies; housing; personal expenses; transportation; child care.
 
Pell Grant recipients are given the option to “pay as you go” or, arrange a Payment Plan which allows students to defer payment for tuition and fees at Registration; and other educationally related charges, such as required books and supplies at the BATC Bookstore, in which the student has voluntarily authorized charges and payments to be processed by BATC. The Payment Plan allows students to charge tuition, fees and other educationally related charges to the student’s accounts receivable subsidiary account.  
 
Pell Grant installments are disbursed directly to the student in the form of a paper check. BATC works with Pell Grant recipients in meeting their Payment Plan obligations by allowing students to pay account balances by the due date following receipt of Pell funds. BATC reserves the right to use Pell funds to pay for outstanding tuition and fee charges prior to releasing funds to students; and to pay for other educationally related charges in which the student has voluntarily authorized charges and payments to be processed by BATC.  Once all eligible Pell funds for the academic year have been released to the student, the authorization to allow charges for other educationally related charges will be terminated. 
 
The Federal Student Aid/Pell Grant Authorization for Other Educationally Related Charges form is available at the BATC Financial Aid Office during the students Pell Grant Awarding Interview.  The authorization may be modified or cancelled at any time thereafter.
