All students must attend the summer Program Orientation, or must meet/contact their Auto Mechanic program advisor prior to taking their first course.

All part-time students must meet with an Auto Mechanic program advisor to develop a sequential Plan of Study prior to taking their first course. (failure to do so may result in the student taking longer to complete the program)

Students must take their program core courses in sequence, and during the same semester as is reflected on the published Plan of Study.
