FA: 150% Rule

A student that can not graduate by the time they have attempted 150 percent of the published credits for their program, as listed on their program requirement sheet, will immediately become ineligible for financial aid that program.

Note: All credits for classes a student attempted at any time while attending Northcentral Technical College listed on the program requirement sheet count towards the 150 percent . All credits a student takes while in the program count towards the 150 percent regardless of whether or not they are listed on the program requirement sheet.
 

Example:

A student in the Nursing Program must successfully complete 70 credits (listed on the Nursing Program Requirement Sheet) to graduate from the Nursing Program.
 
Published Credits: 70
150 percent of Published Credits: 70 times 150 percent = 105 Credits
 
At the end of the student’s fourth term in the Nursing Program, the student has attempted 75 credits that count toward the 150 percent rule and has successfully passed 30 of those credits.
 
The student has 40 credits left to successfully complete the required 70 credits before he/she can graduate from the Nursing Program.
 
If you add the 75 credits already taken and the 40 credits remaining (75 + 40 = 115) to graduate from the Nursing Program, the student would have to take a total of 115 credits to graduate. The student is immediately no longer eligible for financial aid for the remainder of the Nursing Program, because 115 total credits are greater than 150 percent of the published credits (105) to graduate from the Nursing Program.
