THREE-YEAR PLAN

The three-year plan is designed for students who must be employed during daytime work hours in order to attend school, for students with family or other obligations that make it impractical to attend classes four days a week, and for students who for other reasons need to proceed slower through the AEC program. Following the plan, students attend AEC classes only two days a week (except for one semester at the end when one class does not fit the plan of classes only two days a week). The plan leads to the A.S. degree, the same as for the regular two-year plan. There is no sign-up or declaration required. Students can simply follow the plan if they choose.

Not all courses in the program are AEC courses, however. Students following the three-year plan can take General Education and other required non-AEC courses during the two intervening summers, evenings, or in gaps in the weekly two days they need to attend AEC classes.

The regular two-year plan also enables students to take less than a full schedule of classes each term, but this three-year plan ensures that prerequisites and co-requisites are met along the way and that schedule time conflicts are avoided.

Students considering the three-year plan should be aware of the fact that financial aid may not be available for fewer than 12 credits a term, and other tuition benefit programs may have a two-year time constraint.

The three-year plan is about as close as we can get to accommodating students who cannot attend classes four days a week because of outside employment
or other obligations. Because most of the AEC classes are five or seven hours in length, a full program of all evening classes does not work.
