SECTION 2 INFORMED CONSENT

Advising, Counseling and Confidentiality

Centre for Arts and Technology does not offer professional counselling services. If required, the Centre will direct you to
professional counselling or other services.

Except in specific situations (see below), you have the right to confidentiality with your discussions in Student Success. Your
Advisor can only share specific information on a need to know basis with college staff that require the information. Your Advisor
cannot share content from your discussions with other people such as your friends, parents, teachers, etc., without your
permission. If you would like us to share information with other people, such as an academic advisor or doctor, you must give
us written permission. You have the right to change your mind and revoke that permission at any time.

Legally, we may need to share safety concerns with others. Your Advisor is legally bound to break your privacy if they believe:
• You are in imminent danger of harming yourself or know of another person in harm’s way
• You might harm another person
• A child (age 0-18) is being abused, neglected or is a witness of abuse
• A dependent adult is being harmed or abused
• If your record is subpoenaed
Student Success Advisors also reserve the right to disclose to the proper authorities and/or individuals and take action should
they discover:
• Worrisome behaviours or history relevant to a violence threat/risk assessment. Information in this situation would be shared with relevant
members of the college staff
• Harm and cruelty to animals
• Maltreatment of Student Success Advisors or Centre for Arts and Technology staff or students
• Criminal activities (past or current)
• Legal action is being taken against the college or college staff member

Confidentiality and Supervision
To ensure the best service to you, your Advisors engage in supervision. This means that your Advisor may share details of your
situation with the other Advisors in Student Success, the President, and/or the Education Manager. They share information
to help others learn, or for help dealing with some situations. These discussions are focused on helping improve the quality of
work your Advisor does, and only the details relevant to a particular aspect of your situation will be discussed.

SECTION 3 STUDENT LOAN ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENTS

Please complete the following form whether you are currently on Student Loans or not. This will assist us in the future in the event you apply for student loans during your time as a CAT student.

Centre for Arts and Technology is a designated school with StudentAid BC. When a student enrolls in our institution, we are
responsible for administering the loan processes appropriately.

As a student who receives financial assistance from StudentAid BC you need to be aware of your obligation to maintain full
attendance and proper scholastic standing at Centre for Arts and Technology.

If your attendance does not meet the following criteria, we must inform StudentAid BC, and return your loan documents to
them. For StudentAid BC purposes, you would be considered to be a technical withdrawal. At that time, you would become
solely responsible for your tuition payments. For our purposes, however, you are still an enrolled student of Centre for Arts
and Technology and we will continue to work with you toward successful completion of your training program. Please do not
confuse a technical withdrawal with being cancelled from your training with Centre for Arts and Technology.

According to the Ministry of Advanced Education, StudentAid BC, a technical withdrawal is when a student:

1. Misses two consecutive calendar weeks of study (with the exception of the year-end break when schools are permitted to close for up to 3
weeks at the end of the calendar year).
2. Drops below 60% attendance for 3 consecutive calendar weeks of study.
3. Has missed sufficient days/hours that they can no longer successfully complete the program within the ministry-approved study period.

To qualify for successful completion status with StudentAid BC, each student must complete ALL requirements for
FULL diploma by the last day of classes. Failure to do so will result in Centre for Arts and Technology reporting you as
unsuccessfully completed. This could affect future government student assistance funding.
