English Fluency in Higher Education Act

All instructional faculty members (full-time and adjunct) whose second language is English are required to write and speak fluently in the English language according to the English Fluency in Higher Education Act. Piedmont Technical College reports annually to the South Carolina Technical College System a summary of any grievances filed by students under the provisions of this act. An English Fluency Evaluation Committee has been established at Piedmont Technical College to hear grievances filed by students for faculty members who do not meet the requirements of this act. Once a grievance has been filed, the instructor will be referred to the committee within 30 days for proficiency evaluation, using the procedures and methods described in PTC Procedure 8-2-1090.1.
