Academic Progress

All degree- and/or certificate-seeking students are expected to make satisfactory progress toward their declared objectives. During the full-time student's first term in college, the student is expected to maintain a minimum grade point average of 2.0 (C) average. Part-time students are expected to have maintained a grade-point average of 2.0 after attempting twelve (12) credit hours.

Regular class attendance is necessary if a student is to receive maximum benefit from college enrollment. The student must make arrangements for makeup work and absences with the instructor, who will determine whether an absence can be excused. If absences or tardiness affect the quality of work, the instructor may recommend dropping the student from the course. Instructors will permit students to make up work missed because of field trips and activities approved by the college. Allied Health students should refer to their program handbook for special academic progress requirements applicable to their program.  Financial Aid recipients must also adhere to the Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress policy.
