Students can receive a Craftsman Diploma in Carpentry or in Masonry. With more advanced technical instruction, students can receive an Associate in Specialized Technology Degree in Construction Technology (with a carpentry or masonry emphasis); Horticulture, Landscaping, and Turf Management; Machine Tool Technology; Paint and Coatings Technology; or Power Plant Technology.
Classes are typically small in size. The maximum number of students in a classroom or laboratory setting is approximately 40 students, although most classes include fewer than twenty.

An institution’s accreditation does not guarantee that credits earned at that institution will be accepted for transfer by any other institution. Decisions concerning the acceptance of credits by any institution other than the granting institution are made at the sole discretion of the receiving institution. Students considering continuing their education at or transferring to other institutions must not assume that credits earned at this School will be accepted by the receiving institution. Students must contact the registrar of the receiving institution to determine what credits, if any, that institution will accept.

If a student’s cumulative GPA falls below the standard, he will be required to meet or exceed the cumulative GPA standard for all ensuing semesters at the School. Failure to do so will result in enrollment termination. If a student fails to meet the School’s cumulative GPA standard in the last semester of his senior year, he cannot graduate from the School.
Failure of three courses or failure of either a trade theory or trade skills course for which a suitably equivalent course at another institution cannot be found results in cancellation of scholarship.
If a student in the Construction Technology degree program fails a course and is unable to receive a passing grade in an approved, equivalent course at another institution prior to his scheduled graduation from Williamson, and if the course that the student failed is not required as part of the diploma program in the student’s area of study, the student will be transferred into that diploma program. In order to receive his degree, the student must meet the requirements for Course Failure Compensation listed above no later than one year from the date of his graduation from Williamson.

- Require personal consent to disclosures of individual identifiable information contained in the records, except for categories of data not subject to the prior consent requirement. The Williamson School specifically reserves the right to disclose data on student progress and disciplinary matters to parents.
