“A Great Man with a Great Vision” is the origin of Moore Tech.
William Robert Moore was a nineteenth-century Memphis entrepreneur who overcame extreme hardships as a boy to achieve extraordinary business and government success. He was born March 28, 1830, near Huntsville, Alabama. At age 12 he went to work as a farmhand. For the year he earned $24, room and board. At the end of the year he had saved $12.
He attended school until he was 15, but was mostly self-taught. Mr. Moore subsequently became a retail sales clerk in Nashville, then a wholesale salesman. Then he moved to New York, where he also was a salesman.
While still in his 20s, Mr. Moore returned to the south, opening a wholesale dry goods business, Wm. R. Moore, Inc., in Memphis. The business became a great success and Mr. Moore emerged as a valued civic leader in the city. He also was elected to the United States Congress. Mr. Moore always had a great interest in providing for young people the education that had eluded him as a boy.
In 1909, at the age of 79, Mr. Moore died. He left the bulk of his estate to establish a college in his name that would provide, “. . . education and training of youths in the mechanical arts and sciences, including electricity, and the operation and maintenance of a manual and scientific training institution.”
A board of trustees was selected from among the most prominent leaders in Memphis. They chartered The Wm. R. Moore School of Technology to be operated in the, “. . . methods and principles observed in the best institutions.” The board invested the money, and when Mrs. Moore died, she left the balance of the estate to the college. The total funds allowed the trustees to begin construction of the school in 1938. Its first class convened in January of 1939 at its present location, 1200 Poplar Avenue.
Mr. Moore’s dream has continued uninterrupted. Initially no tuition was charged. The college curricula has evolved over the years to keep up with the needs of a changing job market. Moore Tech has provided important vocational training to tens of thousands of students throughout the mid-south.
Moore Tech is a private, non-profit, post-secondary college. Our objective is to teach men and women how to earn a living by providing the knowledge and skills necessary to succeed in a specific technical vocation. In all our philosophies, concepts, and functions, Moore Tech reflects the worth of the individual, while serving the needs of both the individual and industry.
The college is dedicated to provide quality programs of instruction which not only recognize the importance of technical knowledge and the development of skills, but also the need to develop quality work habits and attitudes.
We recognize the fundamental need to develop the skills and knowledge of students to fulfill the critical manpower needs of industry. The college provides intensive and practical courses designed to enable graduates to become employable upon graduation.
Faculty members at Moore Tech have many years of on-the-job work experience and practical knowledge in the areas they teach.

Application & Registration Fee
Students must pay a $25 application fee and a $55 registration fee at the start of each trimester. A student may not be considered officially enrolled in a class or program until the registration fee is paid. Payment of the fee ensures a student’s spot in class. Students receiving employer reimbursement, vocational rehabilitation, or VA benefits still need to pay the application & registration fee in order to enroll. This may be refunded to the student later in the trimester when additional benefits are disbursed.
Tuition and Fees
All tuition and fees are due and payable on the first day of classes. Please see the current Fee Schedule and Calendar for registration and tuition information available in the admission office and on the college website. Those seeking payment arrangements may do so at the discretion of the admission office.
The use of textbooks are included in tuition. Students are required to return textbooks prior to the taking their final exam or upon dropping a course. Lab manuals or textbooks that require the student to fill in the blank are not required to be returned. By providing the student use of textbooks for use, this allows students to reduce their cost. If students wish to own their textbooks, students always have the right to purchase their books from third party textbook providers.
Some courses may have additional lab fees or other charges depending on the programs. Currently, programs requiring additional fees include Welding, Machine Shop and the Associate of Applied Technology Degree.

Students who want to apply for federal Pell Grant (not loan) must fill out the Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) before being admitted to the college. Enter http://fafsa.ed.gov in the address bar of your browser to apply. To avoid bogus websites, do not enter it in the search engine. The FAFSA school code for Moore Tech (The William R. Moore College) is 013531 - you will need this code to complete the form.
In some cases, the college may request additional information to process your FAFSA. These materials may include your, your spouse’s and/or your parents’ tax return(s) transcripts, verification worksheets, low-income forms or proof of selective service. All information will remain confidential. It is the right of the college to request these materials, if needed.
The FAFSA is always free. If a site requests payment, it is not the official government site. To ensure a faster processing of your financial aid, you should always try to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool on the FASFA application. You will need your (and your parents’, if applicable) tax returns from the prior year as indicated on the FASFA instructions. Failure to complete the FAFSA completely and accurately may delay the determination and/or awarding of Pell Grant funds. A FAFSA may be signed electronically (recommended) or downloaded and signed by hand. To sign electronically, you will need an FSA ID, which you can obtain at fsaid.ed.gov. If you are a dependent, your parent must also sign your FAFSA with an FSA ID. If you require assistance in filling out the FAFSA, consult the admissions office.
Once a student notifies the college of their intent to drop a course or withdraw (see note below) from the institution, the following applies:
1. All Tuition & Registration fees are refunded 100% when an applicant does not

Foreign Student - A student coming from a foreign country. Foreign students who have a High School Diploma from another country must provide proof that their transcript is equivalent to a High School transcript accepted by the Department of Education. There are transcript evaluation services available to analyze foreign transcripts. Foreign Students can also provide a GED in place of a High School Transcript. Moore Tech also reserves the right to require additional study in the English language in those cases where a candidate's proficiency falls below minimum standards.
Full-Time Student - A full-time student is one who is enrolled in a minimum of 12 credit hours per trimester.
Three-Quarter Time Student- A three-quarter time student is enrolled in 9-11 credit hours per trimester.
Half-Time Student - A half-time student is one who is enrolled in 6-8 credit hours per trimester.
Less Than Half-Time Student – A less than half-time student is one that takes 5 or less credit hours per trimester. Our night certificate students usually fall into this category.
91-100 A Excellent – Assignments are performed with minimum of errors.
81-90 B Good – Some errors are present; however, student exhibited a
satisfactory understanding of the assignments.
70-80 C Average – Assignments performed need to show improvement.
Additional study is recommended.
65-69 D Below Average – Extensive improvement is needed.
Below 65 F Failing – Unsatisfactory*
I Incomplete – This grade is used in rare occasions for situations that may
arise. Instructors determine if an “I” grade is warranted. This grade
becomes an “F” if work is not completed within two weeks during the
next trimester. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements with
the instructor to make up work. “I” grades account as hours attempted
but not earned.
W Withdrawal – This grade is assigned when the student withdraws from a
class or is administratively withdrawn from a class after the 100%
tuition refund period during the first two weeks of the trimester. It does
not affect the student’s GPA. It counts as hours attempted but not
earned when calculating the student’s Completion Rate.
* In the event that the student repeats a course, the student will benefit from the higher of the two grades.
Grade Point Average Calculation (GPA)
A – 4.0
B – 3.0
C – 2.0
D – 1.0
F - 0
Cumulative GPA’s are weighted by the number of credit hours.
Instructors issue their numeric and letter grade to students at the end of the term. During the term, students are encouraged to communicate with the instructors if they have questions concerning their course performance. Academic Warning, Probation, or Suspension notices are mailed to the student’s last known address.
Students are expected to successfully complete all of their classes and maintain a minimum 2.0 GPA. The normal time length of each program is outlined in this catalog. The maximum time frame in which students will be allowed to complete a program will be 150% the normal time.
Students are expected to attend each time a class meets and be on time for class. Regular class attendance is indicative of a strong work ethic and willingness to learn. Students who graduate from Moore Tech will be expected to perform well on the job. Students with good attendance, grades, and skills may benefit from better job offers when they graduate. Students with poor attendance miss out on safety training, skill development and information they need to be a successful student and a productive employee. Students need to remember that they are not here just to pass another class, but are here to learn the skills they need to improve their livelihood and quality of life. Students must also make school a priority in their work/life balance. The instructor determines the extent to which tardiness will affect the student grade. 90% attendance is mandatory to pass each course. A student will be given an attendance warning after 4 unexcused absences. This form will be signed by the student and instructor. After 7 unexcused absences the student will automatically fail the course due to poor attendance.
Students should notify the college if they wish to drop a class or withdraw from the college. Students who drop a class or withdraw from the college within the first two weeks (14 calendar days) from the start of the trimester will not have their classes appear on the transcripts.
Students who stop attending class(es) will be dropped from classes if they are consecutively absent for two weeks (14 calendar days). For drops and withdrawals, the student’s last date of attendance is considered the drop/withdrawal date. Drops and Withdrawals negatively affect the student’s completion rate, the time of completion and academic standing. Students receiving Title IV Pell financial aid who withdraw may be required to repay Title IV Pell funds and may owe a repayment of tuition to the college. Any student anticipating dropping a class should check with the academic advisor and the financial aid counselor. Students who withdraw from the college will need to reapply to the college. Students who show poor effort, poor grades, or poor attendance may not be allowed to reenroll.
Students who withdraw from the college for any reason and then re-apply for admission are subject to review by the President of the college. Students may not be able to reenroll.
In order for a student to graduate from a program, a student must meet all of the admission and college graduation requirements for their program. Students must successfully complete all of the required courses for their program and have a minimum of a “C” 2.0 grade point average. Maximum time allowed to complete any program is 150% of the program length. Graduates are expected to have their tuition balances paid in full. Diplomas and student transcripts will be withheld if a student has an outstanding balance. Students who complete their graduation requirements and do not have an outstanding balance are issued their applicable Associate of Applied Technology Degree, Diploma, or Certificate during the graduation ceremony. Awards are also posted on student transcripts after they have completed their graduation requirement.
Moore Tech may accept credit for courses completed at other accredited institutions. Such courses must meet the following criteria in order to be awarded credit.
Many majors require electives to be taken in technical areas outside their specific major. When a student completes all the technical electives required of a specific major, (for example a student majoring in Welding also completed all of the required courses for Machining), in addition to receiving an award in their major, Moore Tech will award a stackable certificate of completion acknowledging the number of hours completed in the secondary concentration. Stackables are only awarded after the student completes the requirements for their major. Double Majors are only awarded when courses are not shared with their primary award.
Students should always have good attendance and successfully complete their attempted classes with the highest grade possible. Students are measured on both Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) and Completion Rate.
The trimester credit programs are normally taught over 3-6 trimesters, depending on the program. The maximum time frame will vary depending on the enrollment status of the student each trimester.
The student must complete each program within 150% of the normal time frame. To remain in Good Academic Standing, at the end of each trimester, the student must be on pace to successfully complete 67% of the cumulative credits attempted with a minimum “C” 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA).
At the end of first trimester, student must have a minimum 1.0 CGPA and a 50% Cumulative Completion Rate.
At the end of the second trimester, student must have a minimum 1.5 CGPA and a 50% Cumulative Completion Rate.
At the end of the all other trimesters, student must have a minimum of 2.0 CGPA and a 67% Cumulative Completion Rate.
Cumulative GPA and Cumulative Completion Rate is Calculated at the End of Each Trimester
Students who do not meet the above academic standards will be placed on Academic Warning/Academic Probation.
Students who do not meet the minimum CGPA requirements or the minimum Cumulative Completion Rate Requirements the following trimester are placed on Academic Suspension.
Students placed on Academic Suspension have already been given a chance to bring their academic performance up. Students may file a written appeal. The appeal must explain how the student has made progress and what circumstances has changed that would allow the student to be successful if given an additional opportunity. Past attendance, effort, and performance will be considered in any appeal process. The Appeal decision is final. Students who have their appeal approved but fall again below the minimum 2.0 GPA or the minimum 67% Completion Rate will not be allowed to reenroll.
Veterans are reminded that unsatisfactory progress, academic or non-academic, may result in a cancellation or withholding of benefits by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requires the student to complete the program within 150% of the normal time frame. At the end of each trimester, the student must be on pace to successfully complete 67% of the cumulative credits attempted with a minimum “C” 2.0 cumulative grade point average (CGPA).
The number of total cumulative credit hours passed divided by the total cumulative number of credit hours attempted = Completion Rate.
A passing grade would include an (A, B, C, or D). I-Incomplete grades are not considered passing and will convert to F’s if not completed or made up within 2 weeks into the next trimester. W-Withdrawal grades are not considered passing and will effect student’s completion rate but will not be calculated in the students’ CGPA.
Withdrawals/Drops - If the student withdraws from a course after the add/drop period, the credits in the course will be included as credits attempted but it will not affect the CGPA.
Classes When No Financial Aid Received - Classes taken when no financial aid was received are still counted toward CGPA and completion rate.
Transfer credits will count both as attempted and completed credits but will not affect the CGPA unless the credits are transferred from another program at the school.
Change of Major If a student changes majors, SAP will be based on coursework (including attempted electives) if the coursework would apply to the new program. Thus the SAP criteria will be reset. For SAP purposes, change of majors are limited to two SAP resets.
Repeated failed subjects will count as attempted credits but only the most recent grade will count toward the CGPA.
Non Credit remedial classes are not eligible for financial aid.
Incomplete grades will be changed to an F if the required class work is not completed within 2 weeks of the next trimester. If student has I grade, their financial aid may be put on hold until the “I” is completed. Once an “I” grade has been finalized, SAP will be revaluated.
Financial Aid Warning -If the student fails to meet the above requirement at the end of the trimester, the student will be placed on Academic Warning for the next trimester. If the student is not in SAP at the end of the Academic Warning trimester, the student will be placed on Unsatisfactory Academic Progress (USAP) and all financial aid will be terminated.
Appeal Process of an Unsatisfactory Academic Progress (USAP) Status - If a student is placed on Unsatisfactory Academic Progress after they have been placed on Academic Warning, all of the student’s financial aid is terminated. Students on USAP may appeal their loss of financial aid based on unusual circumstances, such as death in the family or illness by giving written notice to the FAA within 10 college business days after receiving the notice. The written notice must explain what prevented the student from maintaining SAP and what has changed in the student’s situation that will allow the student to regain their Satisfactory Academic Progress. The Financial Aid Counselor (FAC) will resolve the appeal within 10 college business days and notify the student of the decision. The decision is final. College business days do not include college break periods. If the student’s appeal is approved based on student’s situation that has changed that will allow them to regain Satisfactory Academic Progress, the student will be placed on Financial Aid Probation and the student’s eligibility for Pell grant will be reviewed by the FAC and if eligible, Financial Aid funding will be continued.
Financial Aid Probation - The student is eligible for Financial Aid Probation for one trimester only after a successful appeal. If it appears that it may take two trimesters for the student to be back in SAP, the student would have to have a customized plan outlining the goals over both trimesters. If a two trimester plan is not used, the student would have to meet SAP requirements at the end of the 1st trimester of Financial Aid Probation or their financial aid will be terminated. If a student is on a two trimester Academic Plan, at the end of the 1st trimester of Academic Probation, the student would have to meet SAP requirements or meet the academic plan goals of the 1st trimester or aid would be terminated. If student on an academic plan meets the 1st trimester plan goals, they can continue to receive aid for the 2nd trimester of Academic Probation. If a student on an Academic Plan fails to meet SAP at the end of their Academic Plan’s 2nd trimester, their financial aid funding will be terminated without any additional appeal options.
Reinstatement of Aid – After appeal processes, etc. a student who has lost financial aid because of their Unsatisfactory Academic Progress status must pay their own tuition and fees. Once the student has successfully completed 67% of the credits attempted, within the required timeframe, and with a 2.0 CGPA, if eligible, financial aid will be reinstated for future payments and the student will be placed back into SAP Status.
Reenrollment of USAP Student - If a student on USAP withdraws from the college, they are still considered on USAP if they reenroll in the college and they must complete the required SAP policy requirements to become eligible for financial aid if applicable.
