Degree/Certificate Completion Procedures

The college requires that students complete their degree or certificate within 125% of the published length of the program. The college will take the following steps to ensure that students are completing programs within a timely manner. 

Step 1: When a student has completed the credits of the published length of the program, registration will be restricted until the student has developed a completion plan in consultation with instructional faculty. The plan must show that the student will be able to complete within the 125% of the normal timeframe. If the student has mitigating circumstances, such as a disability, they must be documented with the Disabilities Specialist, and an appropriate plan should be in place.

Step 2: At 150% of credits required for the degree/certificate, the student will be blocked from further registration. The student may appeal to the appropriate dean for special circumstances.
