Academic Information

Title IX Information

Educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance are required to comply with Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, and Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. These federal laws prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender, including sexual harassment and sexual violence; sexual orientation; genetic information; race; color; religion; national origin; age; veteran status; and disability in the education programs and activities that they operate. Bradford School is subject to these laws and complies fully with them in the enrollment of students, the hiring of faculty and staff, and in all other activities of the school. The Director of Education, who is identified in the Administration, Faculty, and Staff section of this catalog and who may be reached at 412-391-6710, is the Title IX coordinator at Bradford School. Questions regarding Title IX may be referred to the Title IX coordinator or to the U. S. Department of Education Office for Civil Rights. Students, faculty, and administrative employees are encouraged to bring any complaints or reports of discrimination to the coordinator's attention. The matter will be investigated promptly, and both parties will be notified in writing about the outcome of the complaint. Appropriate follow-up will be implemented to assure that no person associated with the school is subjected to unlawful discrimination. Individuals who report discrimination will not be subjected to any retaliation for doing so. The Pennsylvania Human Relations Act (PHRAct) prohibits discrimination because of an applicant's or current student's race, color, sex, religion, ancestry, national origin, handicap or disability, record of a handicap or disability or relationship or association with an individual with a handicap or disability, use of a guide or support animal, and/or handling or training of support animals. The Pennsylvania Fair Educational Opportunities Act (PFEOAct) prohibits discrimination against prospective and current students because of a prospective or current student's race, religion, color, ancestry, national origin, sex, handicap or disability, record of a handicap or disability, and/or relationship or association with an individual with a handicap or disability. It is also unlawful to retaliate against any prospective or current student because s/he has filed a complaint with the Pennsylvania Human Relations Commission or to aid or abet any unlawful discriminatory practice under the PHRAct or the PFEOAct.

Credit Transfer From Another School

Transcripts of work completed at other accredited colleges may be submitted to the Director of Education for review. Transcripts should be submitted during the first term of a student's program. 

Other documentation may also be required. Credits considered for transfer are evaluated by the Director of Education to determine if course work is similar in nature, content, and level to that required by Bradford School. If the course work is comparable, transfer students may be given credit for coursed completed at other accredited colleges provided the grades received for the courses were a "C" or better. Courses completed at other Bradford Schools will be treated the same as courses taken at Fox College. Because programs at Fox College are tailored to career preparation, course credits from other postsecondary schools may not be transferable.  

Credit is not granted for advanced placement or experiential learning. One exception is credit for military training that has been evaluated and recommended for credit by the American Council on Education for evaluation. Credit will be treated as transfer credit and will count towards graduation.  



Credit Transfer To Another School

The acceptance of credit is always at the discretion of the institution to which a student is attempting to transfer credits. 

There may be articulation agreements in place at the time the student enters that may not be in place when the student graduates or desires to attend a particular school. Because programs at Fox College are designed specifically for career preparation, students must assume that credits for courses taken at Fox College are not transferable to other institutions. Neither Fox College nor any of its employees can represent that another institution will accept any courses for credit. 

A student who is interested in attempting to transfer credits to another institution should contact the Director of Education. 

Fox College will supply the necessary documentation that may aid the student in receiving credits for the completed course work provided the student does not owe the school money, is not delinquent or in default on a student loan, or does not owe a refund on any federal or state student financial aid program.
