A student who has not completed all requirements of the Texas Success Initiative (TSI) must receive academic advising from the Advising Office until all remediation requirements are met.
Students are advised of assessment, placement and advising requirements during recruitment, admissions and the enrollment process. Upon completion of the Texas Success Initiative requirements, a student no longer is required to participate in advising in the Advising Office.
A student is required to be in continuous remediation until passing all parts of the test for TSI purposes. This means a student must remain in at least one developmental course until TSI complete.
Students may retake a test for TSI purposes with no waiting period with the approval of the testing administrator to determine their readiness to perform college-level academic coursework. However, students who do not score high enough on such a placement test must enroll in and complete the prescribed developmental course or sequence of courses.
Students who pass placement tests on this campus during a semester must fulfill the requirements of the course(s) in which they are enrolled.
Students who fall into first-level remediation on the assessment exam must participate in continuous remediation in the Student Success Center, in addition to enrolling in the appropriate developmental course(s).
A student who enrolls for a second time in the same developmental course must enroll concurrently in EDUC 1300 and/or the corresponding Student Success Center lab.
If a student earns a "D" or "F" again, but passed EDUC 1300, the student will continue in SSC lab until both the course and lab are passed concurrently.
After a student exceeds the state's maximum of 27 semester hours of remedial courses, the College may charge an additional fee for further remedial courses.
A student must place into a college-level course or successfully complete the developmental sequence that precedes the required college-level course before enrolling in that course.
Students enrolled in developmental courses are expected to follow the attendance requirements outlined in the course syllabus and complete all assignments and testing.
Instructors may drop a student with a grade of "F" for failure to follow the attendance policy, failure to complete assigned work and/or failure to complete all required testing.
