Maximum Timeframe Standard

Maximum number of attempted credits


For undergraduate students, Federal Student Aid funds cannot be paid to a student who exceeds 150% of the published length of their current degree program. The 150% is measured on the basis of NIC and transfer attempted credits.

For instance, if an associate degree program requires 64 credits for graduation, it must be completed within 96 credits. Programs credit hour requirements vary, check the Catalog for the precise number of credits required for program completion, then multiply the figure by 1.5.

If the number of attempted credits equals or exceeds 150% of the program requirements for graduation, the student will be placed on a Maximum Timeframe Status.
