Graduation Requirements


In order to be awarded a Postsecondary Training certificate, students must have met the following requirements.

  1. Students must fulfill all academic requirements for the chosen program of study as outlined in the Florida State College at Jacksonville catalog and curriculum.
  2. Earn minimum prescribed clock hours for the chosen program of study with a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 ("C") on a 4.0 scale on all courses that apply to the chosen program of study.
  3. Complete a minimum of 25 percent of the total clock hours required for a certificate's program requirements at Florida State College at Jacksonville.
  4. Students must have fulfilled all obligations, financial or otherwise, to the College before they may graduate.
  5. Students must earn a TABE (Test of Adult Basic Education) score that meets or exceeds the program's exit requirement, if applicable.

Note: Students are cautioned to provide particular attention to the following statements.

  1. A student's graduation date will be the date of the end of the College term in which the student has fulfilled all academic requirements. (The removal of an incomplete grade does not affect students' graduation dates, since the grade change is effective at the end of the term in which the incomplete grade was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made up.)
  2. Students who enter under the (2015/2016) catalog will be assigned to the degree or certificate requirements in effect during the 2015/2016 academic year.  The student's assigned catalog year will remain in effect as long as the student maintains continuous enrollment. Changes to requirements as mandated by law or by rule of the District Board of Trustees may supersede this provision.
  3. Many courses in this catalog have prerequisite requirements and/or co-requisite courses listed in the course descriptions. Students are advised to be guided by these requirements.
