The need to reduce remediation rates is evident in the numbers.

In the fall of 2010 71.5% of incoming students needed one or more remedial courses. 37.5% needed two or more. 24.5% needed three or more.

Remediation for secondary school skills can add as much as a year and a half to a student’s time to earn an Associate degree.

Rapid Review Seminars

Since Summer 2009, Student Success has been running free review sessions for students who come within 10 points of placing out of arithmetic or reading.

Over the past two years, 48 students have successfully completed the program with 77% of re-testers testing out of MATH 0500 and 100% testing out of ENGL 0890.

If all the students entering in Fall 2010 who met the Review criteria participated in the program, approximately 204 students would have placed out of MATH 0500 and 509 students would have placed out of ENGL 0890 at current rates.

Funding for this program is expected to expire by the fall of 2012.

Orientation

  • Orientation reinstituted in 2009 to address three key areas of concern- student understanding of academic expectations, financial responsibilities, and opportunities for personal growth. With a one-time grant from OHE, Orientation has grown from 300 students on one campus to a projected 2000 students on all four campuses this summer.

  • Program evaluations indicate that students are not aware of these expectations, responsibilities or opportunities, and that they appreciate the information. However, they continue to seek shorter and less detailed programs to provide this information.

  • Orientation attendance up 170 % from summer 2009 to summer 2010

  • Registration for fall 2011 orientation up 56% over all of last summer with 7 weeks left to register: 32 sessions scheduled at all 4 campuses; up from 15 in summer 2010.
