Students are expected to finish their degree programs with continuous enrollment in the specified number of terms outlined in the curriculum for their programs. Students who leave the college for a full-term will be assigned the requirements for the catalog that is in effect for the year of their return. These students will be expected to meet any new requirements for that catalog year unless the sponsoring department approves an earlier catalog year.
Each student operates under degree requirements in effect at the time of initial acceptance as a degree candidate. If, after two years for a certificate, four years for an associate, or six years for a bachelorís, the degree requirements have not been met, the student must satisfy the graduation requirements in effect during the studentís year of graduation.
A student participating in a college-sponsored part-time degree program has two years from the conclusion of the last scheduled course in the sponsored program to complete the degree requirements. After this time, if the degree requirements have not been met, the student must satisfy the graduation requirements in effect during the studentís year of graduation.
