 Note: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following statements.
  • 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.)
  • Students who enter under the (2019/2020) catalog will be assigned to the degree or certificate requirements in effect during the 2019/2020 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.
  • Many courses in this catalog have prerequisite requirements and/or corequisite courses listed in the course descriptions. Students are advised to be guided by these requirements. Students who place into developmental education courses are required to complete designated developmental education courses with a grade of "C" or better regardless of program of study.
