Students at Macomb may obtain a certificate/degree by completing the program as outlined in the catalog requirements under which they entered the institution, or by fulfilling the catalog requirements in the year they intend to graduate.
A student who has not been enrolled for two consecutive years or longer must follow the catalog that is in effect the semester upon re-enrollment to the College.
Students will have a maximum of seven years to complete their certificate/degree. Departments may place additional restrictions on the amount of time that individual courses can be used to apply toward the fulfillment of certificate/degree requirements.
Departments may grant exceptions to the 7 year limits for students pursuing an applied science or general studies degree who are returning to college after more than a 2-year absence if they can demonstrate continued proficiency in courses previously taken, or if they have earned equivalent certifications elsewhere. Students should consult with their departments before assuming they need to “start over.”
