Catalog Affecting Credits and Graduation Policy 3.32

The date of the catalog by which credits are checked for graduation may not be more than four years earlier than the date of the issuance of the degree. A student may not be checked by a catalog dated earlier than the time of entrance. Students may not use a combination of catalogs to graduate, but must follow the degree requirements in one catalog. If a student’s work is interrupted by military service, an extension of time of not more than six years will be allowed equal to the period of interruption.

Second DegreesSecond Certificates

Second degrees will be awarded based on the catalog in effect at the time of enrollment in the new program and cannot be extended beyond four years. For a second associate degree, a student must complete a minimum of 15 additional credit hours beyond the first degree at Glen Oaks and achieve a 2.0 grade point average for the additional credits. It is required that these additional credits be planned and approved in writing through a counselor. The written approval of the additional 15 credits must be forwarded to the Registrar’s Office in order to be considered for the awarding of the degree.

Second or additional certificates will be evaluated based on the catalog in effect at the completion of the second certificate.
