- Degree Completion Policy: A student is considered to have completed a degree when all degree requirements have been met. Students are not eligible to receive federal/state aid for coursework which will not count towards degree completion requirements. Students should carefully monitor each semester's/term's course selection, as some electives may not be required for degree completion and, thus, cannot be included in that semester's/term's enrollment status for federal/state aid eligibility.
