Pledge to Students

All students who have an individual advising plan called My Advising Plan (MAP) and follow that plan will transition quarter coursework into semesters with the following three guarantees:

    * No loss of academic progress
    * No delay in time to degree completion/graduation
    * No increase in total tuition and fees expended for the degree program.

Individual Advising Program

In preparing for the fall 2012 switch from a quarter-based academic calendar to a semester-based academic calendar, the North Central State College commits to a partnership with students that promotes the successful transition.

As with any partnership, expectations exist between the parties. Each NC State student making the transition can expect that advising resources will be available to assist him or her in defining a specific path to degree completion. This path will be determined in consultation with an advisor and will be recorded through the completion of a written individual advising plan (MAP).

The college expects that each and every student will work with an advisor to create a MAP. Any and all students who meet with an NC State advisor to plan their MAP, and then follow their plan, will receive [three pledges] from the college. Students who do not meet with an advisor to create a MAP should not expect the college to honor these pledges.

No Loss of Academic progress

Students who meet with an advisor to form a MAP and then follow that plan will not lose earned credit as a result of the semester conversion. The earned quarter hours will be converted to semester hours based on the following formula:

Number of quarter-credit hours x .6667 = Number of semester-credit hours
Example: 90 quarter-credit hours x .6667 = 60 semester-credit hours

Applicable credit hours will be counted toward fulfilling degree requirements. For students enrolled before fall semester 2012, old and new catalog requirements will be merged to ensure progress toward degree. Combination will vary depending upon percentage of degree completion at the time of semester conversion. Students, again, must meet with their academic advisors to determine their individual advising plan (MAP).

No delay in time to degree completion/graduation

This pledge ensures that students who are on track to complete their degrees at the time of conversion and who maintain a consistent rate of credit accumulation after semester conversion will not experience an extension of the time-to-degree completion. NC State cannot be held responsible, however, for personal choices such as decisions to change to part-time status, to "stop-out," or to deviate from the agreed-upon individual advising plan (MAP).

No increase in total tuition and fees expended for the degree program.

Student tuition and fees under the semester system will not be greater than they would be under the quarter system for a two-semester academic year. The total full-time cost of two semesters equals the full-time cost of three quarters. In addition, the total tuition and fees cost over the length of the degree program (based on two semesters per academic year) will be the same for students following an approved MAP under the semester-calendar system as it would have been under the quarter-calendar system. Tuition and fees payment schedules will be aligned with the semester calendar. However, the college may implement annual tuition increases as deemed necessary and authorized by the Board of Trustees.
