(c) Institutions shall not consider any hours for which a student has enrolled as part of a master's or professional degree program without first completing a bachelor's degree in the calculation of the number of hours required for a bachelor's degree or the equivalent until the student has completed a minimum of 120 hours required for the bachelor's degree or equivalent.
