Students may maintain continuous enrollment whether attending a single
public community college or university in Arizona or transferring among public
institutions in Arizona while pursuing their degrees. Continuous enrollment
status of a student and the catalog of determination for a student are defined
- A semester in which a student earns course credit will be counted toward
continuous enrollment. Noncredit courses, audited courses, failed courses,
or courses from which the student withdraws do not count toward the
determination of continuous enrollment for catalog purposes.
- Students who do not meet the minimum enrollment standard stipulated in
No. 1 during three consecutive semesters (fall/spring) and the intervening
summer term at any public Arizona community college or university are no
longer considered continuously enrolled, and must meet requirements of the
public Arizona community college or university catalog in effect at the
time they are readmitted or of any single catalog in effect during
subsequent terms of continuous enrollment after readmission. Students are
not obligated to enroll and earn course credit during summer terms, but
summer enrollment may be used to maintain continuous enrollment status.
- Students admitted or readmitted to a public Arizona community college or
university during a summer term must follow the requirements of the
catalog in effect the following fall semester or of any single catalog in
effect during subsequent terms of continuous enrollment.
- Students transferring among Arizona public higher education institutions
must meet the admission requirements, residency requirements, and all
curricular and academic requirements of the degree-granting institution.
- Students under the 1997-98 and prior catalogs must follow the general
education requirements of those catalogs; they do not have the option of
using a subsequent catalog for general education purposes.
Exceptions to these policies are the prerogative of the college. Students
should contact their college deanís office for more information.
