Answers in red below.



1.       Transfer work - do you have or use an automated system (speede, or other) to capture and transcript transfer hours when the student transfers to your institution? At what point do you put transfer credit on your college's transcript? - No.  We have an Articulation Specialist who reviews each transcript and enters transfer courses as appropriate.  We do not enter transfer courses until the student has registered at our college.



2.       Graduates/completers - are students required to petition for graduation? Are program directors part
of a process to insure all completers and graduates are identified/reported?  - Yes; our students must file for graduation before we will award a certificate or degree.  The only exception is with core completers - those are automatically awarded.  In our technical/workforce areas, program directors are heavily involved with ensuring identification and reporting of graduates.  On the academic side, the program directors are not as involved.


3.        When in a semester does your institution make financial aid dispursements? - Financial aid refunds are disbursed after census.  The date is determined by our Office of Financial Aid.
