                                 HOURS OF OPERATION AND START DATES
                                         (Correction to Page 22)

                                    COURSE SUBSTITUTION/REPETITION
                                        (Amendment to Page 23))
The College’s substitution policy allows students to replace up to two failed course grades in a program per
academic year. Additional failed courses must be repeated without the substitution of the original grade. Under
both circumstances the College’s satisfactory progress policy applies. Substitution will allow the original grade to
become an “RPT” when the retaken course is successfully completed with a minimum grade of C. The “RPT”
grade will have no effect on the GPA. Students not eligible for course substitution may still repeat a course.
Under course repetition the original and retaken courses count toward the GPA and completion percentage.
