  2. Students must have maintained no less than a cumulative 3.60 GPA in the courses taken at Northeast Texas Community College and be eligible for graduation from Northeast Texas Community College.
  3. Students must not have made any grade below a B in all of their Common Body of Knowledge (CBK) science and math course work.
  4. This agreement will be reviewed on an annual basis and may be amended by mutual written consent of both parties by issuing an addendum to this agreement.
  5. This agreement will commence effective the Fall 2014 semester with commitment of a five (5) year period.
