Program Guarantee

North Dakota State College of Science offers education and training designed to enable students to acquire the entry-level vocational/technical competencies necessary to enter the workforce. NDSCS stands behind the training provided and will guarantee to provide at least six additional credits of retraining under the following conditions:

  • Your employer certifies that you lack the target job competencies normally expected of an entry-level employee who has graduated from your vocational/technical program, or
  • You have not secured employment within six months following graduation.

To be eligible for retraining, you must have graduated from a technical certificate program, technical diploma program, or associate in science or associate in applied science degree program. In addition, you must have registered for services provided through the NDSCS Student Success and Career Services office and actively pursued employment in your occupational field or a related field. This guarantee does not imply that you will pass any licensing or qualifying examination for a particular occupation. Other guidelines also may apply.
