Completion of Degree and Certificate Programs

All associate degree programs require minimum coursework of 60 semester credit hours. Nearly all of the College’s associate degree transfer programs are designed to allow full-time students to complete all requirements over a period of two calendar years. However, because of many factors (student work schedules, class scheduling problems, required developmental work, certain prerequisites, etc.) the average full-time student may take somewhat longer to complete a degree program.

Certificates require substantially fewer semester credit hours and are normally completed in less time than associate degree programs. Due to insufficient enrollment, certain courses in career programs may not be offered every year. In order to avoid delays in graduation, students may consult with the appropriate department chair to determine if there are appropriate substitutes for such courses.

Chesapeake College reserves the right to award students all academic credentials earned.
