through continuous enrollment in these courses.
These courses can be stackable to either (1) a Diploma Program or (2) a
Degree Program under the related discipline.
To earn a Diploma, the student must enroll in courses along the pathway

be credited to equivalent units either in College or Post-Graduate degree.
