- Received at least a minimum grade of C in the course(s) taken for transfer credit;

Career and Technical Programs
Lake Michigan College assures that the courses completed with a grade of “C” or better in an Associate in Applied Science, Associate in Applied Business, or Associate in Industrial Technology degree will provide entry-level skills needed for a particular occupation. To qualify, a student must have:
- Initiated the program of study after April 1988 and complete within three years of initiation with a GPA of 2.0 or better;
- Followed the official Lake Michigan College program guide sheet, dated 1987 or thereafter, for course selections;
- Been employed full-time within one year of graduation.
NOTE: Some students may be employed while completing the requirements for an associate degree. The AOQ will apply if the position held at the time of graduation is compatible with the associate degree earned.
Retraining: If a student is subsequently judged by an employer to be lacking in technical job skills normally expected of an entry-level employee within the major, Lake Michigan College will provide further skill training for up to 16 semester credit hours within two academic years without additional charge for tuition or fees.
- In order to be eligible for retraining, the employment must be verified by the Career and Transfer Center as being directly related to the graduate’s program of study.
- The employer must provide written certification that the employee is lacking the entry-level job skills that are identified, in writing, at the time of initial employment, and must specify the area(s) of skill deficiency within 90 days of the graduate’s initial employment.
- The employer, the graduate, and a college faculty advisor, with advice of appropriate teaching faculty, will develop an educational plan specifying up to 16 credit hours of retraining. Such courses must be those regularly offered by Lake Michigan College.
- The retraining courses will be limited to 16 hours of registration regardless of outcome.
