Credit for Industrial Experience

Industrial credit for CNC job experience

In some cases, provisional course credit may be given for applicable and validated industry experience, subject to the evaluation and approval by the department chair, faculty advisor and Admissions & Records Office. Credit is provisional and may be canceled at any time if subsequent course work at TSTC is unsatisfactory.

The total number of semester credit hours awarded for Credit Awards may vary depending upon the student’s program of study; however, the total credit awarded (including transfer credits) cannot exceed 75 percent of the total credits required for the student’s declared program of study. At least 25 percent of the total credits in a TSTC student’s certificate or associate degree plan must be earned through regular SCH instruction at a TSTC college or at another institution of higher educaton in partnership with TSTC. To receive Credit Awards, students must be enrolled at TSTC and have completed a minimum of six semester credit hours of non-developmental coursework at TSTC.

New students who request and meet the standards for Credit Awards will be granted credit pending completion of six non-developmental semester credit hours at TSTC. While credit may be awarded by TSTC for external exams and training, this credit may not satisfy requirements for a specific program of study. Students should check with program advisors to determine if accepted Credit Awards will meet program requirements. A grade of CR (credit) will be assigned for any course in which Credit Awards are received. This grade is not computed in the grade point average, and the credit does not count toward calculation of student load for a term. The student is responsible for obtaining documentation and submitting it to the Admissions & Records Office. Students must complete the appropriate Credit Award Request form with appropriate documentation to initiate the Credit Award process. Payment of any fees associated with Credit Award program must be received before credit can be posted to the student’s transcript.
