The purpose of the Learning Support Program is to enhance students’ academic competencies in English and mathematics and enable them to achieve success in UGA’s rigorous academic environment. Students who are screened as Learning Support will be notified by mail that they need to complete the Compass test. Based on the results of the Compass test, students might be placed in either the English and/or the mathematics academic areas of the Intensive Multi-component Program’s Learning Support Program.
Learning Support Requirements
- All Learning Support (LS) students are required to take UNIV 1113: University Success for Freshmen or UNIV 1103: Strategies and Life Skills Needed for Success. These courses carry 2 hours of elective degree credit.
- Students exit the LS program by earning a grade of C or better in all of their LS courses. (LS students are also expected to obtain a minimum of 70% on the personalized learning path of the MyFoundationsLab) for each academic area.
- LS Students who do not exit a program area before two attempts will be suspended from the University for a period of one year. In addition, LS students may not accumulate more than 30 hours of college-level credit before completing all Learning Support requirements. If LS students have not completed their requirements by the time they have earned 30 hours of resident-credit hours, they may enroll only in their LS coursework. (These represent policies of the Board of Regents.)
- LS students are advised through the Division of Academic Enhancement until they exit the LS program. LS students must enroll in appropriate UNIV courses specifically designated by the Student Relations Coordinator (i.e., LS advisor) in the Division.
For more information students can review the Intensive Multi-component Program Student Handbook for detailed information about requirements, policies, and resources.
