EASTERN IDAHO TECHNICAL COLLEGE_ ___________________________________________________________ 2015-2016
The Eastern Idaho Technical College catalog is the principal
source for information on academic and technical programs,
institutional data, courses, degree requirements, and all other
services offered by the College. To determine graduation
eligibility, the Registrar follows the requirements defined in a
single edition of EITC’s catalog. Students may select any edition
of the catalog published and in force while they are continuously
enrolled in the program in which they’re graduating. Students
must earn a minimum grade of “C-” in all required courses in
order to meet graduation requirements, unless otherwise stated
in a particular program. In addition, an accumulative grade point
average of 2.0 or higher is required for graduation. The College
reserves the right to make course substitutions for discontinued
courses. If you do not maintain continuous enrollment, you will
lose the right to use the original catalog requirements and must
use the catalog in force at the time of re-enrollment. When
students change their program of study, they must submit an
Intent to Change or Add Program form. Students are required to
graduate under a catalog in effect during their continual
enrollment in the program in which they’re graduating.
Honor Cord: Students completing all of their course work based
on their cumulative GPA at designated date are eligible to wear
an honor cord. This honor designation is based on the December
CUM GPA or their last attended semester (if prior to December).
Honor or High Honor designation is also listed on the certificate/
degree of completion and will include all completed terms.
Cumulative GPA 3.50 to 3.749
Cumulative GPA 3.75 to 4.0
Through authority of the Idaho State Board of Education,
Eastern Idaho Technical College awards the Basic Technical
Certificate, Intermediate Technical Certificate, Advanced
Technical Certificate and the Associate of Applied Science
degree to program graduates.
Apply for graduation by paying the fee at the Cashier’s Office
and submitting an Application for Graduation Form. A $15
graduation fee will be assessed for each certificate and/or degree
received and must be paid before the certificate or degree is
issued. Forms are available online at Admissions/ Registrar/
Forms & Links. Student records are checked carefully for
successful completion of program requirements when the
Application for Graduation is submitted to the Registrar’s
Office; however, it is your responsibility to verify that the degree
audit has been completed and all requirements have been met.
Applications for Graduation are due October 1 for fall or
February 1 for spring and summer. This allows the Registrar’s
Office to complete the degree audit to determine anticipated
completion of the student’s program of study.
All requirements for a certificate or degree must be completed
and official grades reported to the Registrar before a certificate
or degree is issued. A certificate or degree which is awarded in
error, or upon fraudulent claims, will be withdrawn immediately
and the student record corrected. The College reserves the right
to revoke a previously granted certificate/ degree, either for
failure to satisfy the certificate/degree requirements (i.e., a
mistake in granting the certificate/degree), or for fraud or other
academic misconduct on the part of the recipient discovered or
acted upon after the certificate/degree has been awarded.
Certificates or degrees issued by EITC are unique documents.
Duplicates will not be issued.
