c. Quantity of Progress: Maximum Time Frame
Students must finish their academic program within
150% of the published length of the program.
For example, a full-time student in a 61-credit hour
associate degree program should be able to earn the
degree in three years taking no more than 92 credits.
d. Appeals
All students have the right to appeal. This may be done
by completing an appeal form and submitting it to the
Office of Financial Aid and Registration. The director of
financial aid will review cases on an individual basis to
determine if mitigating circumstances are responsible
for poor progress. Mitigating circumstances may include
but are not limited to illness or injury of the student or
death of a close family member. All circumstances
must be documented. Students will be informed in
writing of the appeal outcome. In the case of a denial,
students will be informed in writing of what they must
do to be reinstated for financial aid. Anyone who is
reinstated will be considered to be making satisfactory
academic progress during the period of reinstatement
but will be re-evaluated after that period. Unsatisfactory
determinations made by the director of financial aid
may be appealed to the vice president for academic
affairs. The decision of the vice president is final.

Student/Course Transfer

Students who desire to transfer credits to Thaddeus Stevens
College of Technology (TSCT) must have taken the classes
at a college that is accredited by a regional or national
accrediting agency and must have earned a grade of "C" or
higher in those classes. Students may only transfer general
education classes. All classes that are non-general education
classes must be taken at TSCT. Transferred classes are
recoded with a "T" (transfer credit) in place of a merit grade.
These classes do not factor into a student's GPA.
Students should request that the college(s) where
courses were taken mail an official transcript to the Office
of Financial Aid and Registration at Thaddeus Stevens
College. The Office of Financial Aid and Registration will
evaluate all course descriptions. The registrar reserves the
right to request a syllabus and/or additional information in
determining course transferability. The Office of Financial
Aid and Registration will notify students, as well as their
advisor, as to which classes meet the requirements for
transferring.

Transfer to 4-Year Institutions

Students who have earned college credit can sometimes
transfer those credits to other colleges/universities since
Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology is accredited
by Middle States. Students should contact the college/
university they are interested in transferring to in order
to determine what credits will transfer. Information on
articulation agreements is available in the Academic Affairs
Office.
