Standards of Academic Progress

Broward College strives to provide the highest quality of instructional and support services. Students accepted into certificate and degree programs will be continually evaluated to ensure that standards of progress are achieved and to identify and provide assistance to students who experience academic difficulties. BC is committed to providing assistance for all students in order to provide an optimal learning experience so that students will be able to succeed in achieving their educational goals.

College regulations regarding standards of academic progress apply to all degree and certificate students and it aligns to eligibility requirements for continued Federal financial aid (see policy on Student Financial Services Programs 6Hx2-5.11). In determining academic progress, college credit, vocational credit and college preparatory credit are combined in the term and cumulative grade point averages. “Earned Credit” is defined as all courses in which the student receives a grade. Courses taken for audit and courses in which a student has withdrawn during the withdrawal period will not be included in the determination of academic standing. Refer to Standards of Academic Progress Policy 6Hx2-4.23.
