COURSE SELECTION AND GRADUATION REQUIREMENTS
Students are responsible for fulfilling their graduation requirements, whether general education or technical. Faculty advisors assist students in planning course selections, but the final responsibility for meeting graduation requirements rests with each student.
With an advisor's help, students should schedule and register for the required general education courses listed on their model schedules. Departures from these requirements are only acceptable if approved by the advisor and the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
Thaddeus Stevens provides key pathways for you to continue your education as soon as you earn your associate degree. If you are planning to transfer to a four-year college or university, the most important advice for students wishing to transfer is to start planning early.
An academic/credit overload occurs when a student registers for more than 19 credits per semester, such as three general education courses of three credits each, plus the required technical subjects. Most overloads occur when students try to make up required courses. Students wishing to schedule an overload must have the permission of their advisors.
