To make a long story short, i'm a Radiology major (X-Ray Tech) and am supposed to graduate next week. I transferred from one Radiology program to another school of the same chain. (Somerset Community to Pineville Community) Both of these schools are accredited from KCTCS (Kentucky Community and Technical College Systems.) I transferred from Somerset to Pineville College to finish my last semester of the program because it was closer to home and affording driving an hr away for clinicals 5 days a week was getting unbearable. Before transferring, all of my classes were said to be fine, all competencies from clinic were fine, and the rest of my classes for this Spring semester were completed then i was good to go.
Anyway, so yesterday (A week before graduation) I get this letter in the mail saying that 25% of my classes have to be completed from the school i am graduating from (Pineville) so i won't be able to graduate. Although all of my undergrad classes, all radiology classes, all clinical hours have been passed, completed, and signed off by my Radiology coordinator, they are saying i need 4 hours of anything before i can graduate which will put me into the summer semester.
My point of view: Everything was told to me from the get go that everything was in order and worked out fine. The college had done sent me letters upon letters to order my cap and gown to walk in graduation, i have already paid my $200 (non refundable) to take the Kentucky board exam for Radiology on May 14th. All classes required and clinical classes that were asked of me were completed, but you're going to send me a letter 7 days before graduation day and say it can't happen? Nahhh, i don't think so. SOOOO i talked to the dean of the college and he acted like i had to take 4 more hours before graduating. I told him that my attorney and I would like to schedule a meeting with him asap to get this covered because that is bull. Thoughts?
