The General Education and Learning Support department offers learning support courses for students who do not meet the regular or provisional admission requirements based on their placement test scores. Students who fall into this category should enroll in the appropriate learning support class(es) during their first semester. These courses provide remediation in basic English, reading, and math skills. The knowledge and skills students achieve in the learning support courses will prepare them to be successful in both their program and General Education classes.
Learning Support courses are taught in a modular-based format and will allow students to progress at their own pace through the courses. Students will be required to show mastery of each module before moving to the next one. After demonstrating an appropriate level of mastery for all course modules, students will exit the Learning Support class(es) in which they are enrolled and will be eligible to register for General Education and program classes.
Students who do not complete all assigned modules at the required mastery level must repeat Learning Support classes until mastery is achieved.
General Education and Learning Support faculty members as well as staff in the Student Success Center are eager to help students who are having difficulty. Students may also find it beneficial to schedule appointments during faculty office hours and meet with staff within the Student Success Center during regular hours of operation.
