A. During a regular semester a full-time student must complete a minimum of twelve (12) semester hours or 75 percent of the course credit hours of initial enrollment upon which fi nancial aid calculations were based with an average grade of “C” (2.00).
B. During a regular semester or a summer session a part-time student must complete no less than 75 percent of the number of credit hours in which he/she was initially enrolled (and upon which the level of award was based) with an average grade of “C” (2.00). However, because of the awkwardness of a percentage application to limited enrollments, a student who has met the 75 percent completion and 2.00 grade-point requirement cumulatively for the last two enrollment periods will be considered to have met this criterion
C. During a summer session a full-time student must complete a minimum of six (6) semester hours or 75 percent of the course credit hours of initial enrollment upon which aid was based, with an average grade of “C” (2.00), or meet the 75 percent criterion cumulating for the last two enrollment periods as indicated in subsection B for part-time students.
D. As required by federal regulations, the student must have a 2.00 cumulative GPA at the end of the second year of attendance (48 credit hours).
E. Students are expected to complete the requirements for an associate degree within 150 percent of the published length of the program. This standard will be applied using credit hours; thus, for a 62-hour program the maximum time frame allowed is 93 credit hours. For a 70-hour program the maximum length allowed is 105 credit hours. All withdrawals, audits and failed courses will be counted toward fulfi lment of this maximum time length. An evaluation of cumulative progress toward goal completion within these frames will be made at the beginning of each award year or after three (3) semesters (or equivalent) for the full-time student and six 6) semesters for the part-time student and any period hereafter deemed appropriate by the Director of Financial Aid. For transfer students, hours attempted at the previous institution(s) will be considered in this evaluation.
