Residency for Program Completion at IRSC (Minimum Hours Required)

Students must complete at least twenty-five percent (25%) of the requirements for their certificate or degree at IRSC. For example, a student completing a 60 credit hour program must take a minimum of 15 credits required for that program at IRSC. Only courses with grades of A, B, C, D and S that are part of the degree or certificate program will satisfy the residency requirement.

Developmental level courses may not be used to fulfill the residency requirement.

Courses that can be taken multiple times for credit can be used multiple times toward the residency requirement up to the number of times that they can be taken for credit.

CLEP, AP, IB, PEP, and competency-validated credit will not be counted toward the residency requirement. Students should consult with their assigned advisor if they have any questions regarding transfer.
