Diploma Programsdipcertimage

Diploma programs are generally two years in length. They are designed to prepare students for employment in a given occupational area.



In order that the diploma and certificate curricula will contain a requisite increment of general education to satisfy the policy established by the State Board for Community Colleges and still allow for maximum institutional and individual flexibility, the following guidelines will apply:

1. Fifteen to twenty (15-20) percent of the credit-hour requirements should include courses in general education, exclusive of specialized courses in the major field, or supporting technical and theory courses in related fields. These courses should be selected from the following:

Communication Skills Humanities
Health, Physical Education Orientation
or Recreation Social Science
Mathematics Laboratory Sciences

2. In satisfying the above requirement, repetition of a discipline is not encouraged; the maximum number of courses allowable from any discipline should be two.
