BEN

Ben is a new student at QCC and arrives at the Advising Office with his mother. His mother tells you that he has had many learning problems in high school but managed to get through. He was not on an Ed Plan in High School but the teachers did allow him to have more time taking tests, especially multiple choice tests. She asks if the Advising Office can let faculty know about Ben’s learning problems and to let him have additional time to complete exams.

ben continued
BEN (continued)

Ben has tested into ENG 091, ENG 096 and Math 099. He mentions that if he had more time on the test, he might have done better. Ben’s not sure what program of study or career he’s interested in but he wants to take an Art course and maybe a computer course. He wants to take 4 courses and hold off on taking math until the next semester.

His mother is worried about Ben getting a job after college and wants Ben to enroll in a certificate program that would take less time and lead directly to employment. She also wants him to take 5 courses.

JOSE

Jose is 55 years old and immigrated to the United States from Peru where he was a radiologist. Since he is unable to practice in the U.S., he is interested in entering the QCC Radiologic Technology program. He is currently enrolled in ESL classes here at QCC. Because of his medical background, Jose believes he should be exempt from retaking the sciences required in the Rad Tech program.

KAREN
  • Karen is a mature, single parent who has decided to return to school and pursue a career that will allow her to better provide for herself and her children. She believes she would like to enter one of QCC’s health programs where she understands there are plenty of jobs. Karen never completed high school but has recently completed her GED. She works full-time and has three school age children. Her assessment results have placed her into MAT 099 and ENG 101. Karen would like to get into the nursing program as quickly as possible and is willing to carry a full-time course load to accelerate the process.
