Course Age Limit Policy
We do not apply blanket age limits to courses for the purpose of BTC program completion, transfer-in, meeting selective admissions, program ranking/entrance procedures, or meeting program requirements in award completion. Approved age limits on courses will be related to the competency(ies) you must demonstrate in the field, employment, and other measures such as certification examinations.
Approved Age Limits for Transfer-In of Courses
Courses included in an earned degree, whether from BTC or another institution, are exempt from the age limits listed below.
- Five Years - All Math and Science Courses; CST/ITS, Computer Service Technician, Manufacturing Information Technician Specialist; Criminal Justice Studies; IT-Network Specialist; IT-Web Software Developer; Medical Laboratory Technician (MLT); and Nursing Assistant (unless currently employed as a Nursing Assistant)
- One Year - All Clinical and Lab Courses (Health Sciences)
Approved time limits on applicability of courses to program admission and completion is available in program admission documents. The college does reserve the right to deny prior coursework if significant changes in the area of study have occurred, or if current knowledge is necessary for student success. For example, computer coursework or allied health courses may have changed significantly and may no longer satisfy degree requirements due to changes in technology or professional practices.
