Students who are enrolled in the Associate of Science Degree by July will remain in that program if they maintain eligibility for enrollment until they fulfill program requirements*. Students can also choose to switch to the new program by speaking with their Academic Advisor. Please click HERE for information concerning the Teach Out Plan.
