School of Aviation Statement of Policy

Only courses with a grade of C or better (including transfer courses) may be used to fulfill a major or minor requirement in any program offered by the School of Aviation.

Students pursuing flight training in their program must hold at least a Second (2nd) Class FAA Medical Certificate before any flight operations may commence.

The number of flight slots varies each semester as they are based on the number of available flight instructors - as a result, there may be delays in degree progress.

Students pursuing flight training may request immediate enrollment in subsequent flight courses at any time during a published term if the prerequisite has been satisfactorily completed.
