Failure to meet progression standards results in suspension from the program.

  • After admission, students must maintain a minimum 2.0 program GPA on program curriculum courses at Central Carolina Technical College in order to progress.
  • Must earn a minimum of “C” or higher in each required curriculum course for the program.  Students may retake courses completed with less than a “C” one time only.
  • Must successfully complete all components of a course (theory, practicum) in order to pass the course. Students who fail to complete a component will receive a grade of “F” for the course regardless of the time in the semester and are not eligible to receive a “W” through the withdrawal process.
  • Students are limited to two attempts at successful completion of any medical coding program (including Central Carolina Technical College). A “D”, “W”, “WA”, or “WF” constitutes an attempt at the AMCO program and will count as one attempt to complete the program
  • Students must complete all course requirements within two years from the start date of the AMCO program.
