Credit Completion Progress Standards

Credit Completion Progress standards apply to all students who have attempted 9 or more credits at TSJC, regardless of the number of term credits they attempt from that point forward. TSJC will determine Credit Completion Progress standards following the posting of the majority of term grades for each semester. Students placed on Warning 1, Warning 2 or Warning 3 will be notified of their status (which may include notification via student college e-mail). The Credit Completion Progress status of a student is specific to TJSC and does not impact a student’s enrollment at other CCCS colleges.

Definitions

Credit Completion Progress:
Will include all credit bearing classes (developmental and college level) will be used to calculate the percent of attempted credits passed. This includes summer term courses.

Only courses taken “in residence” will be used for this calculation; “In residence” means taken at the students home institution. Courses taken elsewhere and transferred in do not apply. The credit completion rate for this procedure will not necessarily match those used for financial aid purposes or athletic eligibility.

Grades considered to be passing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: A, B, C, D, S/A, S/B, S/C, and S.

Grades considered to be failing when computing the percent of attempted credits passed are as follows: I, F, U/D, U/F, W, and AW.

Course Completion Rate is calculated by dividing the total attempted credits by the number of credits successfully completed as per the definitions above.

Warning Rules:

  • Students on Warning 2 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion hold (which will impact registration) placed on their student account at TSJC. The student will not be able to make any changes to their student account until they meet with an advisor.

  • Students on Warning 3 will receive a communication regarding their credit completion status and will have a credit completion hold (which will impact registration) placed on their student account at TSJC. The student will not be able to make any changes to their student account until they meet with an advisor. The college reserves the right to limit the number of credit hours that the student may take when a student is on Warning 3 status.
