Academic Services

Courses numbered 100 and above carry graduation credit and calculate in the GPA. Courses designated with numbers below 100 do not carry credit for graduation; they are, however, recognized by the office of academic services and the office of financial aid as registered units, and they count toward full-time status and financial aid eligibility. Non-credit courses appear on student transcripts with grades, but do not carry honor points and thus do not calculate in the GPA. Students in the Access Program or on academic probation must successfully complete any required academic services course/s in order to be eligible to continue at the college. Students in the Access program and students on academic probation normally register for a total of not more than 12-14 semester hours including any required non-credit courses. Please see additional information under office of academic services and the Access Program, or visit the academic services website.
