VIII. Associate Diploma Regulations and Procedures
Associated Program Requirements
Program Committees have the option of identifying, as requirements for graduation, program components that are not academic courses and do not carry an academic credit weight. Associated Program Requirements allow programs to give formal recognition (but not academic credit) to the successful completion of program components that are primarily non-academic but are judged by the program committee as essential to fulfil the objectives of a degree or diploma program. Associated Program Requirements, when valid, are identified in Section X--Associate Diploma Programs in the schedule of studies for each appropriate area of study.
