                       Letter from the Former President
                       As I leave the Tohono O’odham Community College, I welcome you
                       with enthusiasm, hope and a good heart.

                       If you are thinking about going to our College, come. No matter where
                       you come from, no matter what your background is, you can still
                       embrace the dreams you have in your heart. We are here to serve
                       you and open up the right doors for you and move you forward into the
                       life of learning.

                       I want to show appreciation to the Catalog Committee who work
                       diligently to present programs that will guide your educational
                       journey. All of us in the TOCC family hope your educational
                       achievements will contribute to your wellbeing over a lifetime,
                       enriching your work life, family relationships, economic stability,
                       health, energy, and community.

                       An interim president has been selected to lead the College, and I wish
                       her the best. I want to express my gratitude for the opportunity to
                       serve the students. It has been so rewarding to help the Tohono
                       O'odham Nation develop a community college. The last decade has
                       been enjoyable, fulfilling, intense, and challenging.

                       With gratitude,




                       Olivia Vanegas-Funcheon

The U.S. Department of Education requires an
institution of postsecondary education to have
standards of ―Satisfactory Academic Progress.‖ In
agreement with the regulation, Tohono O’odham
Community College has adopted a policy
regarding ―Satisfactory Academic Progress‖ in
each student’s course of study.          This policy
considers the student’s academic performance
throughout the course of study, regardless of
whether the student has received aid. A student’s
previous cumulative grade point average at
Tohono O’odham Community College is reviewed
whether or not the student received financial aid
at the time. In addition to the requirement of the
Department of Education, the College believes the
―Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy‖ will allow
the Financial Aid Office to provide the best way to
give limited funds to eligible students.

Graduation under the Student’s
Catalog of Record
Students maintaining continuous enrollment at
any public Arizona community college or
university may choose to graduate according to
the requirements of the catalog in effect at the
time of their initial enrollment, or according to the
requirements of any catalog in effect during
subsequent terms of continuous enrollment.

A semester in which a student earns course credit
will be counted toward continuous enrollment.
Noncredit courses, audited courses, failed courses,
or courses from which the student withdraws do
not count toward continuous enrollment.

Failure to enroll in three consecutive regular (fall
or    spring)   semesters     breaks    continuous
enrollment for a student. However, enrollment in
the intervening summer terms may be used to
maintain continuous enrollment status.

If continuous enrollment is not maintained, the
student must meet the requirements for
graduation of the catalog in effect at the time they
re-enroll, or of any subsequent catalog for
continuous enrollment.

Students re-enrolled during the summer term
must follow the catalog for the fall semester that
follows.

The Electrical Apprenticeship at TOCC is based on a curriculum developed by the National Center for
Construction Education & Research (NCCER), whose website is www.nccer.org. The following tables show
the content of classroom instruction and the number of hours of instruction for each module. Following the
tables are descriptions of the modules. Classroom instruction is complemented by on-the-job training, which
is customized for each student. Electrical is a four-year program, requiring 8,000 hours of time invested by
the student.

Facilities Maintenance
The Facilities Maintenance Apprenticeship at TOCC is based on a curriculum developed by the National
Center for Construction Education & Research (NCCER), whose website is www.nccer.org. The following
tables show the content of classroom instruction and the number of hours of instruction for each module.
Following the tables are descriptions of the modules. Classroom instruction is complemented by on-the-job
training, which is customized for each student. Facilities Maintenance is a two-year program, requiring
4,000 hours of investment by the student.
