Postsecondary Education includes general Associate and Bachelor degree programs that qualify the client for several different types of work. For example, Biology and Computer Science are Postsecondary Education programs. It does not
include degree programs that qualify the client for a specific job or field of work (see PM 21-03-02).
Allow one hour of study time for each credit hour of class when figuring participation hours. If the class is not listed in credit hours, then use actual class time. Round fractional hours up.
From 01/99 on, a month of TANF assistance does not count against an 04 caretaker's 60-month limit if the client attends an accredited Associate or Bachelor's degree program full-time and has a cumulative grade-point-average of at least 2.5 on a
4-point scale. Stop the TANF counter when these degree program criteria are met (see PM 03-06-01-d).
