Degree/Certificate Completion Procedures

The college requires that students complete their degree or certificate within 125 percent 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 percent 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 percent 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.
