A student who is continuously enrolled in courses during all major terms must meet the catalog requirements in effect when initially enrolled at the institution. If the student changes their program of study, the catalog year is then determined by the selection of the current academic plan that is in the best interest of the student and leads most effectively toward program completion. The catalog year will be the initial enrollment term at the institution or the effective term of the program change.
If a student’s enrollment is interrupted by two or more major terms the student must meet either the requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of re-entry, the requirements of the catalog in effect at the time of graduation or must be granted an exception by petition to the Academic Standards Committee.
If a program is eliminated due to a lack of interest, viability, and/or demand while a student is currently enrolled, the College will offer an alternate educational plan to be completed within a specific period of time to replace the applicable Catalog. The revised teach-out plan will ensure that the program is phased-out over a gradual three-year period in order for currently enrolled students to complete the remaining program requirements and graduate in a timely manner.
College courses, including but not limited to those in the health sciences, completed more than ten years prior to the date of enrollment (or re-admission) at Broward College may require the approval of the appropriate instructional dean to ensure that course work satisfied graduation requirements. Or, the student may be required to demonstrate an acceptable level of competency in the course by completing an examination.
