Learning Support Grading

The Technical College System of Georgia adopted a redesign initiative for all Learning Support Classes in 2012. The initiative was adopted to increase successful completion rates, to increase on time graduation rates and to assist students with educational cost. The courses are taught using a modular approach allowing students to work at their own speed. This occurs in a classroom environment with instructors to assist students in problematic areas and monitor each student’s progress. The opportunity to offer small group mini-lectures is also available as needed. Due to the modular format, a special grading system is in place to track and record student progress from semester to semester. The Learning Support grade does not impact the GPA.
