2 Important Policies 1.Learning Support (LS) requirements may not be deferred to a future semester; in order to take any college-level credits (1000-level or higher), students must be in the process of satisfying LS requirements. This is a state Board of Regents policy. 2.If a student withdraws from a LS class, s/he must also withdraw from all college-level courses. The exception is that students in one LS course may remain in UNIV 1101, 1000-level PHED, and/or a performance course, such as band or chorus. This, too, is Board of Regents policy.
What does it mean to withdraw from a course? When students withdraw from a Learning Support (LS) course by the midpoint of the semester, that semester’s attempt in LS doesn’t count toward the total allowed attempts. “Attempt” is defined as any semester in which a student receives any grade other than W. (i.e., A, B, C, IP, F, or WF) While there are no academic penalties for withdrawing from a class, there may be financial aid consequences.
Allowed Number of Attempts for Completion of LS Requirements READ 0099: maximum of 2 ENGL 0099: maximum of 2 MATH 0097: maximum of 2 MATH 0099: maximum of 3, for those who begin in MATH 0099 MLCS 0099: maximum of 3 Note: Students who have a LS math requirement are allowed a maximum of 3 semesters in which to completely satisfy the LS math requirement. Students must be in the 0099-level course by the third attempt.
