The courses listed above will be taught in sequential blocks of instruction. Successful completion of a course is required before the student can progress in the program. If the student fails any math, theory, or lab course, then that course must be repeated and a passing grade obtained before the student can advance in the program. The student must exit the program and make up their deficiency through Technical General Education or other appropriate methods. The student will then be allowed to repeat the course at the next available program opening.
Official articulation agreements have been established with other Idaho post-secondary and secondary schools. Where these agreements exist, the specific block of training (i.e., session/semester/year) will be accepted as equivalent to that at ISU and will count equally toward graduation.
Students who demonstrate adequate academic skill to succeed in the occupational content courses of the program will be given an "S" grade for ELTR 100 and 101, and will not be required to attend the initial semester.
Based on your keyboarding skills, you may be required to take a 1 credit Keyboarding class in order to meet the competencies of the program.
