Required courses will be taught in sequential blocks of instruction. At least a C- grade is required in all CET courses in order to continue to the next level course. A C- in any Civil Engineering Technology course will allow a student to continue; however, it could prevent a student from graduating if the cumulative grade point average is less than 2.0 (a C- equals 1.7). A student must have a 2.0 GPA in the program’s required curriculum in order to be eligible for a certificate or degree.

The Associate of Applied Science in Civil Engineering Technology is accredited by the Engineering Technology Accreditation Commission of ABET,
