g) Under Texas Education Code, Section 132.061(f) a student who is obligated for the full tuition may request a grade of “incomplete” if the student withdraws for an appropriate reason unrelated to the student’s academic status. The student may then be admitted into a future session within the following 12 months, provided those sessions have not been canceled, to complete the course at no additional charge. If a student requires remedial work, teachers will work individually with the student on Saturdays.

A student who has been dismissed may appeal the decision to the director, or apply for re-entry. A student who applies for re-entry must show a change in his/her conduct which would merit reconsideration. During the externship, the student is expected to appear wearing OSHA standard dress, and project a professional appearance and manner.
A minimum overall G.P.A. of 2.7 must be achieved before graduating. The program is 3 months in length and will be completed in that time.
A Certificate of Completion will be granted to all students who pass the program requirements. All students will also receive official transcripts.
The NSDA-Plano does not guarantee job placement after the completion of The Dental Assisting Program. However, any student who has not obtained a position by the end of the program may choose to be placed on a list for “on-call” opportunities based on the need of area dentists.
Complaints must first be addressed with instructors verbally. If this does not resolve the issue, a written complaint must be sent to the Director within one week of the instructor’s notice. The school has one week from the date notice is received to respond to the student complaint and attempt to resolve it. The sta? and/or director will research the complaint and attempt to resolve the issues brought forward in the complaint, with the student. Research might include contacting potential student witnesses.
