It is also very important to know your Completion Rate. You are expected to maintain at least a 67% Completion Rate.
To calculate your Completion Rate you need to know your total Attempted Credit Hours with TSTC as well as the total actual Completed Credit Hours.
Use the following formula: Total Completed Credit Hours / Attempted Credit Hours x 100 = _____ %
