Advisement and Plan for Academic Success

For each student who fails to meet the minimum passing standards, the college shall:

  • Advise the student regarding developmental education necessary to ensure the readiness of that student in performing freshman-level academic coursework.
  • Provide a plan, working with the student, for academic success, which shall include developmental education and may include provisions for enrollment in appropriate non-developmental coursework.

Each plan for academic success shall:

  • Be designed on an individual basis to provide the best opportunity for each student to succeed in obtaining his or her career and/or academic goals. At a minimum, the individual plan shall address:
  • Career advising;
  • Course-based and/or non-course-based developmental education options;
  • Campus and/or community student support services/resources;
  • Degree plan or Program of Study;
  • Regular interactions between student and designated point of contact (e.g., advisor, faculty member, peer and/or community mentor, etc.); and
  • Registration for next semester/next steps.
  • Provide to the student a description of the appropriate developmental education considered necessary to ensure the readiness of that student to perform freshman-level academic coursework.
  • Provide to the student an appropriate measure for determining readiness to perform freshman-level academic coursework, relating to Determination of Readiness to Perform Freshman-level Academic Coursework.
  • Consider all federal laws pertaining to ADA Accessibility Compliance and provide advising for such students.
  • Students enrolled in a mathematics pathway model (e.g., New Mathways Project, modular/Emporium models, etc.) will be clearly informed of the consequences of successful completion of this model which will result in meeting the mathematics college readiness standard only for specific college credit courses and that changing degree plans may require additional developmental education coursework/interventions.
  • Students with a TSI exemption for a college preparatory course who earn less than a "C" in the student's first college-level course in the exempted content area must be advised of non-course-based options for becoming college ready, such as tutoring or accelerated learning.
  • For undergraduate students enrolled in a corequisite model as defined in §4.53(7) of this title (relating to Definitions) who fail to satisfactorily complete the freshman-level course, the institution of higher education must:
    1. review the plan developed for the student under this section and, if necessary, work with the student to revise the plan; and
    2. offer to the student a range of competency-based education programs to assist the student in becoming ready to perform freshman-level academic coursework in the applicable subject area(s)
