College Preparatory Instruction

Based on Postsecondary Education Readiness Test (P.E.R.T.) scores, a student may be placed in college preparatory classes in English, mathematics, and/or reading. A student must progress from college preparatory to college level coursework within two attempts in each of the courses. The direct instructional cost will be charged to the student after the second attempt in each college preparatory course. Students with documented extenuating circumstances may file an appeal with the Associate Dean of Educational Services or any Campus Provost for consideration and review. College preparatory courses may not be used to meet degree requirements. IRSC requires completion of SLS1101/Student Success for Associate in Arts Degree students who must take two or more college preparatory courses or whose P.E.R.T. indicates placement at a Level I College Preparatory Course. This course must be taken during the student’s first semester at IRSC. College preparatory courses can be taken while enrolled in SLS1101/Student Success. Alternative instructional opportunities are available for college preparatory instruction. See displays located at any IRSC campus registration office.
