The college catalog has any degree or certificate program requirements of 5 years. This means you are expected to complete within five (5) years as outlined in the catalog in effect at the time of your entrance to the college. You may elect to utilize a more recent catalog year in which you were enrolled, provided the degree requirements are met during that 5-year period and the requisite courses are still offered. If you plan to transfer, you should keep a copy of the catalog dated at the time you entered college, the catalog year you followed for your graduation requirements, a copy of degree plan from the DCCCD Web page, the catalog of the university to which you wish to transfer and the transfer guide valid at the time you enrolled at the college. You may wish to maintain a copy of all course syllabi, particularly if you plan to transfer to either a private university or one located out of state.
