The associate degree prepares students for technologically advanced job employment. It includes accelerated 36 semester credit hours of specialized biomedical content, 15 semester credit hours in general education, and 9 semester credit hours of technical electives for a total of 60 semester credit hours. The curriculum is designed to support a “Block Scheduled Cohort” model for entry and graduation, allowing a 1 year completion. This Cohort model supports the vision to maintain a structured case management system because of the primary student population (veteran and international) served by the College. The curriculum design is block scheduled for Cohort entry; however, based upon the student needs, the administration recognizes that an alternative re-entry ‘on –boarding” process is required. Therefore, students who drop a course(s) within the scheduled block for unforeseen circumstances will have an opportunity to re-enter with subsequent Cohort for the scheduled course. Therefore, students will have the flexibility to complete the degree requirements in 1 year; however, they will be allowed up to two years to complete the degree requirements.
