The Admissions Office staff will admit applicants who do not meet the minimum placement examination requirements for regular program admission on a provisional status. Provisional admission signifies that students must complete learning support coursework in at least one content area (English, mathematics, reading). Provisionally admitted students may enroll in learning support classes and program-specific courses provided they have met course prerequisites.
The learning support curriculum assists students with developing the basic math, reading, and language skills that are essential for academic achievement. Student must receive minimum grades of C* in their learning support courses to progress to the next courses and to gain regular program admission. A grade of C* provides evidence that students have the basic English, reading, and/or math skills needed to succeed in their programs of study.
Students who meet the minimum placement examination requirements for regular program admission may elect to take learning support courses at their own expense if they fell they need to improve their basic skills.
