Testing allowed only with director’s approval.

To obtain the AAS Degree, students must complete a minimum of three flight courses listed in the NMC catalog through the normal process for obtaining credit, and complete a minimum of 64 credit hours. All AVF and AVG courses must be completed with a 2.0 grade or better. Please consult an aviation advisor for scheduling guidelines. Independent study and specialty courses are also available.
