Continuous Enrollment for Undergraduate Students
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 by:
- A semester in which a student earns course credit will be counted toward continuous enrollment. Non-credit 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 dean's office for more information.
