Learning Support courses include ENGL 0099, READ 0099, MATH 0097, and MATH 0099. There are also ESL (English as a Second Language) equivalents for the English and Reading courses. ESL and LS tracks are parallel; students can fulfill LS requirements with ESL courses. (ESL courses are only offered through the Gainesville Campus)
GSC allows two attempts to pass READ 0099, two attempts to pass ENGL 0099, and three total attempts to pass all math requirements (MATH 0097 & MATH 0099). Note: GSC allows only two attempts to pass MATH 0097.
Important items to remember when advising students with LS requirements:
- Students may enroll concurrently in LS and college-level courses as long as ALL prerequisites for the college-level courses are met. Students must enroll in all Learning Support courses prior to enrolling in regular college courses – Board of Regents' (BOR) Policy
- Students may not choose to delay taking a LS class until a later time – BOR Policy
- Students may not drop/withdraw from a LS course and remain in regular college courses – BOR Policy; however, at GSC, a student who remains in at least one LS course may also remain in GSCE 1101 – GSC Policy.
