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.
CoursesStudents who demonstrate adequate academic skill to succeed in the occupational content courses of the program will be given an "S" grade for DEDR 100 and will not be required to attend the initial semester.
