3 INTRODUCTION This guide is intended to provide basic information to assist with the advisement and Registration process for students in Foundations and Corequisite support courses, collectively called Learning Support (LS). Many of the procedures outlined in this document are based on Board of Regents Policies and must be followed carefully. The time taken to review and understand the content of this guide will aid in ensuring that students are accurately placed and registered for the correct classes. This guide should be kept accessible for quick reference during registration and when advising students. A complicated or specialized situation that you do not know how to handle should be referred to the Director of Testing and Learning Support Services, the campus Student Records Advisors, the Advising, Counseling and Retention Services office on your campus or online, the appropriate departmental administrator, or the appropriate Academic Dean. Your attention to this information and your service as an advisor for our students is greatly appreciated. While every effort is made to ensure the accuracy of the material published in this handbook, Georgia Perimeter College (GPC) reserves the right to change any provision listed, including but not limited to academic requirements, without actual notice to individual students. Every effort is made to advise students of changes through the Learning Support website, Christopher Rednour Director of Testing and Learning Support Revised: April 2015 GPC LS Guide P a g e 3 Rev. 06/30/15

5 COMMONLY USED ABREVIATIONS GUIDE To assist with clarity and brevity, a guide of commonly used abbreviations and terms that may be unfamiliar has been created. Abbreviation GPC LS SACS-COC TCSG GPA STEM Non-STEM LS/QS Registration CNTRL Gateway Course CPE Meaning Georgia Perimeter College Learning Support Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Commision on College Technical College System of Georgia Grade Point Average Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (because Business Administration requires MATH 1111, it follows a STEM path despite not being STEM). This path requires College Algebra All Majors that are not STEM or using the STEM path for required math coursework. This path does not require College Algebra Scores that indicate placement in the Banner System A control in the hold section of Banner that only blocks registration if the student doesn t register for a required course. ENGL 1101, MATH 1001or MATH 1111 courses College Placement Exam POLICIES AND PROCEDURES Learning Support is a generic term for programs designed to prepare students for, or to assist students with, collegiate work. Initiated by the Board of Regents, it includes Foundations for English and mathematical skills as well as Corequisite Support for English and mathematics. Students enrolling in Foundations or Corequisite Support will have a program of study designed to increase success in college-level courses. Foundations and Corequisite Support courses are for institutional credit; that is they do not go towards a students Grade Point Average (GPA) but do go toward part-time or full-time calculations and calculations for financial aid. The courses also serve as pre-requisites for many courses at GPC. Placement Tables For Fall Semester 2015 to Summer Semester 2016, placement will be based on the following tables. COMM refers to COMPASS Algebra score, COME refers to COMPASS English score, COMR refers to COMPASS Reading score. Please note that placement in English may require examination of all three scores. GPC LS Guide P a g e 5 Rev. 06/30/15

7 Exemptions after taking the Placement Tests Scores on the ACT, SAT, or CLEP tests, or transfer credit of a C or higher (or a passing grade from a USG institution) in English Composition or mathematics received after the student has taken the placement test but before the student starts classes will always exempt the student from any Foundations or Corequisite Support requirements. This includes retests for ACT, SAT or CLEP. Once classes have started, test scores will not be able to satisfy a Foundations or Corequisite Support Requirement. Placement in STEM (Algebra Path) and Non-STEM Mathematics when Changing Majors Coursework taken towards College Algebra affects placement in the non-algebra Math path. In other words, if a student passes Foundations for College Algebra, they would be eligible to take Corequisite Support for College Algebra (if they remain in a major requiring College Algebra) or they would be eligible to take Corequisite Support for Quantitative Reasoning. Coursework taken on the non-algebra Path, however, has no bearing on the Algebra path. A student who passes Foundation for Quantitative Reasoning would be eligible to take Corequisite Support for Quantitative Reasoning (if they remain in a Major that does not require College Algebra) but would be placed on the Algebra path based on their original placement scores unless new scores would alter that placement (see placement retesting for more details). Validity of Measures Test scores are only valid for a certain length of time. SAT / ACT is valid for 7 years after the date of the test COMPASS is good for one year Placement Retesting Under specific conditions listed below, students may be eligible to retake the COMPASS tests in any unsatisfied areas (as of January 18, 2013): Goal of Retesting: To increase the likelihood that students are correctly placed into Foundations, Corequisite Support and college-level courses. Placement retests are available for applicants as long as they have an active application GPC LS Guide P a g e 7 Rev. 06/30/15

8 COMPASS Placement Retesting does not apply to COMPASS ESL placement testing. Immediately after placement/admissions testing, the applicant to GPC may choose to take a placement retest, subject to the following stipulations: 1. A COMPASS retest is allowed, no earlier than one day after the initial placement test, in all subject areas where college-level placement was not achieved. 2. After the first retest, students may retest again only after 30 days have passed from the last retest. 3. Applicants who choose to retest must do so in one sitting for all subject areas in which they wish to retest. 4. The fee for retesting is $ Test scores in subject areas where college-level placement was not achieved are no longer valid after one year. 6. Placement/admissions will be determined by the combination of the best valid scores between the placement test and placement retest(s). 7. Once coursework is started, a student is no longer eligible for a placement retest. Students who start coursework may start the testing cycle over after 1 year from their last semester of attendance. COMPASS Placement Retest after 1 year Students who have not taken any college work in the University System (including GPC) for 12 months will be retested with the COMPASS placement test in any unsatisfied area and placed by the new score(s) Students who return after 1 year of Foundations Level coursework will have their attempts reset to 0 (returning them to 2 attempts in mathematics and/or 2 attempts in English). Students readmitted under this provision are subject to the 30-hour limit on college-level coursework and may not take college-level credit work if they had earned 30 GPA hours during their previous period(s) of enrollment. NOTE: Students who have taken college work in the University System (including GPC) in the last 12 months and did not satisfy their LS requirements are expected to continue on with their previous placement in Foundations or Corequisite Support where they left off and are not eligible to retest at GPC. Retesting when Changing Majors from Non-STEM (Non-Algebra) to STEM (Algebra) Students who have changed their majors from one not requiring College Algebra to one that does (STEM or Algebra Path) are placed by their original placement scores, not based on coursework done towards Quantitative Reasoning. If a student has received a passing grade in a Foundations or Corequisite for Quantitative Reasoning course and if they have submitted a change of major, the student may present their copy of the change GPC LS Guide P a g e 8 Rev. 06/30/15

9 of major form to the Testing Center who will verify that the student is eligible to test one time to try and better their placement on the Algebra path. Transfer of Placement Scores It is allowable, in specific circumstances, for GPC to accept COMPASS test scores from other institutions. Transfer from USG institutions GPC will accept the COMPASS or CPE placement scores from other USG institutions if they were taken within the last 12 months. Applicants with COMPASS scores below the required minimums from another USG institution will not be considered for admissions unless 12 months have passed since their test(s) were taken with the other USG institution. Transfer from SACS COC-accredited TCSG institutions GPC will accept the COMPASS or ASSET placement or exit scores from January 2002 and after if The student attended the TCSG institution. The placement and/or exit scores are recorded on the transcript. If the student has not exited an LS area, the placement scores must be less than 1 years old. If either of the above is not true for placement scores, the student must take the placement test at GPC. If either of the above is not true for exit scores, the student must complete LS requirements at GPC based on placement by their existing COMPASS Scores. Applicants with COMPASS scores below the required minimums from a SACS-COC TCSG institution will not be considered for admissions unless 12 months have passed since their test(s) were taken with the TCSG institution and they meet the admissibility criteria on a new placement test. Athens Tech and Georgia Piedmont have been given approval to not require exit testing for their redesigned LS courses as part of the Complete College America Grant. Students who pass the exit level Learning Support at these schools will be placed at the college level if transferring to GPC. Other SACS-COC TCSG institutions may have exemption; when unclear please refer to the Director to confirm LS status. Transfer from non-usg and non-sacs COC accredited TCSG institutions Test scores from non-usg institutions will not be accepted for exemption or exit from Learning Support unless the test was taken as a remote test. GPC LS Guide P a g e 9 Rev. 06/30/15

10 Note about Remote Testing: The Testing Center at GPC can arrange to have the GPC COMPASS placement or exit tests taken at another institution for transmission to GPC via remote testing. This allows the student to take GPC s test at another institution which is automatically uploaded into GPC s COMPASS database. Directions for applicants to request a Remote Test are available on the testing website Admissions Students are inadmissible if they cannot exempt placement testing and they Test below a 20 in COMPASS Mathematics Test below a 32 in COMPASS English OR below a 62 in COMPASS Reading AND below a 37 in COMPASS Mathematics Readmission for previous Learning Support Students Former students who did not complete their learning support requirement(s) can be readmitted to the college under the following conditions based on whether the student voluntarily left, how long they were gone and whether they completed Learning Support or completed transferable math at another institution: A student who leaves GPC for any reason may be re-admitted without Learning Support requirements if they meet one of the following conditions: Students have completed all Learning Support requirements at a SACS-COC TCSG institution and completion of Learning Support requirements is documented on their TCSG transcript. Students have earned transferable credit at a regionally-accredited non-usg institution for ENGL 1101 or 1102 (for completion of the Learning Support English requirement) or an Area A mathematics course (for completion of the Learning Support Mathematics requirement with a C or better. Students have completed Learning Support at another USG institution and completion of Learning Support requirements is documented on their transfer transcript. Students who leave GPC and return without having satisfied their Learning Support requirements in the interim may be readmitted to the college under the following conditions: GPC LS Guide P a g e 10 Rev. 06/30/15

11 Students who have been suspended from the institution for a calendar year for failure to complete Foundations-level Learning Support within two attempts have two options on their return. o Students may return to placement in Foundations-level Learning Support and have two more attempts. o Students may take the COMPASS test and accept Learning Support placement according to a placement index calculated on the basis of COMPASS alone. If placed in Foundations-level Learning Support, they will have two more attempts to complete this level. Students in Learning Support who voluntarily leave GPC for periods of less than one calendar year will return to the level of Learning Support (Foundations-level or Corequisite) they were in immediately prior to their absence. o Time spent in Learning Support course work in a discipline area is cumulative within the USG. Students who return to an institution less than one calendar year after one attempt in Foundations-level Learning Support will return on their second attempt in Foundations-level Learning Support. o Students who completed requirements for Foundations-level Learning Support and were recommended for Corequisite Learning Support may reenter at the Corequisite support level. Students in Learning Support who voluntarily leave GPC for periods of one calendar year or more must be retested with the COMPASS in any previously unsatisfied Learning Support area. o Such students may be readmitted without a Learning Support requirement if they meet the institutional criteria for exemption. o Students who do not score high enough on the COMPASS test to exempt Learning Support may be placed in either Foundations-level or Corequisite Learning Support, depending on institutional placement policies. o Students placed in Foundations-level Learning support may be readmitted and allowed up to two additional attempts in Foundations-level Learning Support in both English and mathematics, as applicable, if individual evaluation indicates that the student has a reasonable chance of success on readmission. Students readmitted to GPC with a Learning Support are subject to the 30-hour limit on collegelevel coursework and may not take credit work if they had earned 30 or more credit hours during their previous period(s) of enrollment and have not completed Learning Support requirements in the interim. GPC LS Guide P a g e 11 Rev. 06/30/15

12 Exempting Placement Note: Beginning Fall 2015 and later, passing MATH 1001 or MATH 1101 at a USG institution satisfies the Non-Algebra/Non-STEM path only. Students with this credit seeking a degree requiring college algebra must take a placement test to determine their algebra skill level. MATHEMATICS A student may be exempted from taking an LS Math course if they meet any of the following criteria: Are a Freshman and have a National SAT Math score of at least 500 or national ACT Math score of at least 21 (for Fall 2015 applicants who applied before May 1 st, 2015 an SAT 440 or ACT Math 18 will exempt) or Are a Non-Traditional Student and have a National SAT MATH score of at least 500 or ACT Math score of 21 taken within the last seven (7) years or Have a high enough score on the CLEP, AP, or IB test to earn college credit in mathematics or Have credit for a college-level mathematics course at GPC (courses that do not require exit from Learning Support like MATH 103 and do not qualify) or Have previously exited Learning Support mathematics at any USG school (including GPC) or Exited Learning Support Mathematics at a SACS-COC accredited TCSG college or Have transfer credit for an acceptable college-level mathematics course with a grade of C or better or Have a grade of D in an acceptable college-level mathematics course from a USG institution or Were permitted to register for college-level mathematics at the previous University System of Georgia institution within 12 months ENGLISH A student may be exempted from taking an LS English course if they meet any of the following criteria: Are a Freshman and have a National SAT Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) score of at least 480 or national ACT English score of at least 20 or Are a Non-Traditional student with National SAT Critical Reading (formerly Verbal) of at least 500 or national ACT English of at least 21 taken within the last seven (7) years or Have a GHGST-ELA score of at least 260 as of Fall 2010 for tests taken May 2010 or later or Have a high enough score on the CLEP, AP, or IB test to earn college credit in English Composition/Grammar (see website for current scores) or Have credit for a college-level English (Composition and Grammar) course at GPC or Have previously exited Learning Support English (or Learning Support English and Reading under the old LS System) at any University System of Georgia institution (including GPC) or Have transfer credit for a college-level English (Composition and Grammar) with a grade of C or better or Have a grade of D in a college-level English (Composition and Grammar) from a USG institution and have no CPC deficiency in English or Exited Learning Support English and Reading at a SACS-COC accredited TCSG college or Were permitted to register for college-level English (Composition and Grammar) at the previous University System of Georgia institution within 12 months GPC LS Guide P a g e 12 Rev. 06/30/15

13 Additionally some students may not need additional evaluation if they transfer with specific, valid information. These students can be placed based on the information that has been provided to us, as follows: MATHEMATICS A student may be admitted and placed based on existing Mathematics information: Have a Learning Support requirement in mathematics with a USG school and are not on a Learning Support suspension, and have been out of USG institutions for less than 1 year or Took a COMPASS or ASSET Algebra placement test at a SACS-COC accredited TCSG college, attended that college within the last 12 months, and have those placement scores recorded on the transcript or Have an existing COMPASS Score at any University System of Georgia institution and it is posted on the transcript ENGLISH A student may be admitted and placed based on existing English information: Have a Learning Support requirement in English with a USG school, are not on a Learning Support suspension, and have been out of USG institutions for less than 1 year or Have an existing COMPASS score at any University System of Georgia institution or Took a COMPASS or ASSET placement test in English and Reading at a SACS-COC accredited TCSG college, attended that college within 12 months, and have those placement scores recorded on the transcript. Further, students in certain Certificate programs or in non-degree seeking admissions category may not need to complete Foundations and Corequisite Support unless they change their major or status: Certificate seeking students Students seeking a certificate from GPC in which the certificate does not require a college level English or college level mathematics will not be required to complete Foundations and Corequsite Support in the related area. Should the student change to an associate degree program they will be expected to complete the relevant placement and/or coursework in those areas and are bound by all Learning Support requirements related to their placement. Students seeking a Certificate degree must still meet the admissions criteria of the college via placement testing. Non-Degree Seeking Students Non-degree seeking students, including Senior Citizens - Prime Timers (see page 25 in the College Catalog) and Special (Degreed) Students (see page 24 in the College Catalog) may take college-level credit courses, provided there are no LS prerequisites for these courses. GPC LS Guide P a g e 13 Rev. 06/30/15

14 Students in these categories must take the appropriate placement tests and any required LS courses (or show they meet exemption criteria) if they wish to take a class that has LS prerequisites. Sampling Prime Timers may take up to 12 hours of college-level credit before being required to take placement testing. Students admitted as a sampling student who test into LS and do not meet the criteria for admissions will not be admitted to the college. Special Students who opt to change their status to degree seeking must meet the admissibility criteria of the college; a student with a baccalaureate or higher degree who does not have a transferable mathematics or composition/grammar course must take the relevant COMPASS exam and meet the system requirements for admissions. A student who does not meet the admissibility criteria cannot switch to a non-degree seeking status and be admitted to the college. Registration Requirements During each semester of enrollment a student must first register for all required Foundations and/or Corequisite courses before being allowed to register for other courses. This policy also applies to part-time students. Exceptions: When Foundations or Corequisite classes are required in both English and Mathematics areas and a student is enrolled in at least one required course, a freshman orientation course (GPCS 1020) or physical education or other activity or performance course may be taken that semester instead of one of the required Learning Support courses. (The 30-hour rule applies.) Note: RSCH classes or PHED 1101 cannot be taken in lieu of required LS classes. In the event that a required Foundation or Corequisite Support course is not available at the college, a student may be allowed subject to the approval of the Director of Learning Support to enroll in a course for degree credit if the student has met the course prerequisites, subject to written approval of the president or designee. (The 30-hour rule applies.) Students cannot in their subsequent semester of attendance have the same consideration given to them if they have previously been allowed to enroll in a degree credit course without their required Foundation or Corequisite Support course due to there being no courses of the required type available. Once a student has registered for all Foundations or Corequisite Support requirements, they may register for courses for which they meet prerequisites. Students with only one required GPC LS Guide P a g e 14 Rev. 06/30/15

15 course of Foundations or Corequisite support may register for a First Year Seminar class or activity physical education course without being in all requirements. Prerequisites are listed in the College Catalog and on the web at GPCS 1020 (Georgia Perimeter College Seminar) All students required to enroll in either the Foundations for Composition, Foundations for Quantitative Reasoning or Foundations for College Algebra courses are required to take the GPCS 1020 course. In addition to this population, students who have declared either General Studies or Health Sciences with a concentration in Health Science Professions as their program of study will also be required to take GPCS The following exceptions exist: students entering GPC with 30 or more transfer credits, transient students, students accepted into the Nursing or Dental Hygiene programs, and students in joint enrollment or early college programs will not be required to take GPCS 1020 even if they meet the above requirement. The GPCS 1020 requirement will also be satisfied if a student had previously taken HEDS 1011 or GPCS The 30-Hour Rule Students who accumulate 30 hours of GPA credit and have not successfully completed LS courses may enroll only in LS courses until requirements are completed. Please note the following: The 30-Hour Rule refers to GPA hours as noted on SHATERM. GPA hours include college level credit classes passed and failed (but not withdrawals) Transfer credits do not apply to the 30 Hours of GPA credit. GPA Hours earned during a previous enrollment for returning former students do count towards the 30 Hours of GPA credit and these former students are subject to the 30-hour limit on college-level coursework. A student who changes from a major with no Learning Support requirements to one that has the requirement of satisfying Learning Support for completion may earn up to 30 additional hours of GPA credit before the 30-Hour Rule applies. Students who earn 30 hours of GPA credit should receive a 30 hold on Banner. These students are required to see an advisor for advisement and registration. GPC LS Guide P a g e 15 Rev. 06/30/15

17 Defined Student Scores (LS/QS) Proxy test scores have been created in order to manage certain registration situations. For these procedures to work properly, ALL students must have a QS (Qualifying Score) and either LS (Learning Support) or ES (English as a Second Language) scores. In almost all circumstances these scores will be posted to the student s record by a batch process. The rules for assigning these scores to students are given below. LS Scores LS Fields are defined as follows: Name Meaning LSE English Placement LSMN Math, Non-STEM Placement (major doesn t need Algebra) LSMS Math, STEM Placement (major needs Algebra) LSM Math Placement (no longer used after Fall 2015) LSR Reading Placement (no longer used after Fall 2015) Scores for LS Fields are defined as follows: Score Meaning -9 Student has not tested or not enough valid information exists to make a placement determination -8 Cannot be admitted -1 Not Current used 0 Foundations Level Placement 1 Corequisite Support Level Placement 2 Student s major requirement does not require completion of Learning Support in this area (Certificate Major) 3 Currently Registered in Exit Level 4 Exempted Learning Support 5 An LS score of 5 is used for students who may be out of LS according to ZOAGARP. Please check SOAHOLD for a LC Comment or course history (transfer and GPC) to verify that LS requirements have been met. Noted errors or uncertain cases should be sent to the Director of Learning Support for correction or verification. 6 Exited Learning Support GPC LS Guide P a g e 17 Rev. 06/30/15

18 QS Scores Qualifying Scores (QS) represent what students are able to register for, in general. They are defined as follows: QS Score Meaning 00 Student can register only for required ENSL course. 02 Student can register only for the required LS course (Student has up attempts in an area). Check SOAHOLD to verify that student has been granted an appeal in that area. (No Longer used for LS post Fa 15) 05 Student had low placement in two or three LS areas. (No Longer used for LS post Fa 15) 10 Student can register only for required LS and ENSL course(s). (Student has earned at least 30 college-level GPA hours and has at least one LS or ESL area requirement.) (No Longer used for LS post Fa 15) 15 Student can register only for LS or ENSL required courses and selected collegiate-level courses. (Ex. GPCS 1010, activity classes in PE, art, or music) (Student has two or more LS areas required. If the student is registered for all required LS and ENSL courses, the student may be granted an override into a college-level course assuming all other prerequisites are met.) (No Longer used for LS post Fa 15) 20 Student may register for any course for which prerequisites and any other conditions are satisfied. There are currently no LS or ESL constraints on registration in other areas. (Student has only one LS area required and has earned less than 30 GPA hours.) 30 Student may register for any course for which prerequisites and any other conditions are satisfied. (Student has either exited, exempted, or is currently in the exit-level class for all 3 LS areas.) 31 Student does not fit criteria for evaluation and should be manually examined (default for LS = -9) 40 Student has a bachelor s degree and is coded Special Student. 45 Student has a MARS student with credit in English and math (records are archived); contact the Director of Learning Support for an explanation. (Note: Most of these scores are now in Banner.) 50 Student is a transient student and may take courses as prescribed by home institution. Other Defined Scores In addition to LS/QS, some students will have an MA (Music Audition), a HS (Honors) or a MSXX (Math Exemption) score. Here is a summary of the score assignments for these scores.
