Chapter 3: Student Services
3.70.00 Student Progress Towards Degrees and Certificates
In the 2003 legislative session the legislature passed a law (RCW 28B.10.695) that requires community and technical colleges to adopt policies and procedures to expedite students’ progress toward their program goals (see WAC 131-12-080). The intent of the legislation is to encourage students enrolled in degree or certificate programs to complete their programs with limited additional credits. The policies and procedures should address:
- Students who accumulate more than one hundred twenty-five percent of the number of credits required to complete an associate degree or certificate;
- Students who have a pattern of dropping more than twenty-five percent of their course load; and
- Students who remain on academic probation for more than one quarter.
|SBCTC Resolution 03-10-28 adopting WAC 131-12-080
||3.70.00 added. Passage of SB 5135 (2003) required the SBCTC to develop policies to ensure enrolled undergraduates complete degree and certificate programs in a timely manner.
