Florida Community College at Jacksonville provides a number of educational
programs of less than two years duration for which college credit certificates
are awarded upon satisfactory program completion.
In some cases, the college credit certificate can be an intermediate step
toward the associate in science degree in the particular area of study.
Students can then build upon that college credit certificate to accomplish
the A.S. degree.
In order to be awarded a college credit certificate, students must have
met the following requirements.
NOTE: Students are cautioned to pay particular attention to the following
- Earned a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 (C) on all courses
attempted at FCCJ.
- Completed the required courses as set forth in the College catalog
or as approved by the assistant dean of the area.
- Students who place into college preparatory courses are required to
complete designated college preparatory courses with a grade of "C"
or better regardless of program of study.
- Completed at least one-fourth of the total hours required for a certificate
in residence at FCCJ. Before students may graduate, they must have fulfilled
all financial obligations to the College.
- Graduation dates will be the date at the end of the College term in
which students complete the academic requirements for the degree or
certificate for which they are applicants. (The removal of an incomplete
grade does not affect students graduation dates, since the grade
change is effective at the end of the term in which the incomplete grade
was assigned rather than the term in which the incomplete work was made
- Students who expect to complete the coursework under the terms of
the catalog in effect during the term of their first registration must
graduate within four years after the year of first registration in a
college credit program. Accordingly, students who enter under this catalog
must graduate by the end of the Summer Term 2004, or they will be expected
to meet the requirements of subsequent years. Changes to requirements
as may be mandated by law or by rule of the FCCJ District Board of Trustees
may supersede this provision.
