Student Agreement

FTCC agrees to issue an official SOC Student Agreement (evaluation of completed and remaining degree requirements) by the time you complete six semester hours of credit. This serves as a “contract for degree” between you and FTCC. It remains in effect for up to 5 years, even if you leave the military.
