  • Maximum Timeframe and Pace of Completion

    Maximum Timeframe to Complete

    The maximum timeframe of completion to remain eligible for financial aid is 111.11% of the published length of a program (100 / 90% = 111.11%). For example, a program published length of 45 weeks must be completed in 50 calendar weeks (45 x 111.11% = 49.99).

    Pace of Completion

    TAll students must successfully complete at least 90% of their cumulative attempted clock hours to stay on pace with the maximum timeframe requirements. Attempted clock hours are the hours a student attends each payment period. Pace of progress is measured by taking the cumulative clock hours successfully completed by the student divided by the number of cumulative clock hours the student attempted through the end of the payment period or period of enrollment.
