As of Friday Nov. 12, Associated Student of Central Oregon Community College marketing and advertising coordinator Brenda Pierce was not currently enrolled at COCC according to the COCC admissions office.
“I enrolled fall term…that makes me currently enrolled,” said Pierce during an interview on Friday.
As of Tuesday Nov. 16, Pierce had been re-enrolled. Pierce explained that a mistake was made in regards to her class schedule.
“These things happen occasionally,” said Aimee Metcalf, from admissions and records.
According to the admissions office, students walk away with a receipt showing what classes they currently enrolled in for verification. Admissions also explained that there is a way to find out if a mistake was made, and if so will be immediately corrected.
According to ASCOCC’s constitution, Article IV, Section 4 : Qualifications for Office, “All council members must be members of the ASCOCC thereby maintaining a minimum one credit hour at COCC.”
The other qualification for office is maintaining a 2.0 GPA. Failing to maintain a 2.0 GPA after a probation period results in automatic termination. The consequences of failing to be enrolled one credit is unclear.
