Learning Support Standing Learning Support Attempts and Exit Mathematics Advisement and Placement Test (MAPT)

Learning Support Standing

Grades received in learning support courses (0989, 00998, 0999) are not included in the calculation of a student's grade point average (Institutional or cumulative). Failing grades in these courses will be considered for the purpose of determining satisfactory progress.

Learning Support Attempts and Exit

  1. An attempt is defined as an institutional credit course in which a student receives any grade or symbol except "W" or "WM."
  2. If students do not complete requirements for Foundations-level mathematics in two attempts, they will be suspended for a calendar year. Suspended students may be considered for readmission before the end of one year if they can provide evidence that they have taken measures to improve their skills.
  3. Students who have been suspended from the institution without completing Learning Support requirements may complete their Learning Support requirements and additional collegiate-level work at SACSCOC-accredited TCSG institutions during the year of suspension. 
  4. There are no limits on attempts in corequisite Learning Support courses. However, students who have accumulated a maximum of 30 semester hours of college-level credit at KSU and have not successfully completed required Learning Support courses may enroll only in Learning Support courses until requirements are successfully completed. Students with transfer credit or credit earned in a certificate or prior degree program who are required to take Learning Support courses for their current degree objectives may earn up to 30 additional hours of college-level credit. After earning the additional hours, such students may enroll in Learning Support courses only.
  5. Students will exit Learning Support by successfully passing (as defined by the Institution) the corresponding Area A collegiate-level course.

Students engaged in degree-credit courses before the completion of their learning support requirements will be subject to the requirements of satisfactory scholarship in both types of courses simultaneously. Once the learning support requirements are met, a student's academic standing will be judged solely on the basis of his or her Institutional grade point average for degree credit courses.

Mathematics Advisement and Placement Test (MAPT)

Students who are not required to take the mathematics Accuplacer test for the Learning Support Program should take the Mathematics Advisement and Placement Test (MAPT). The MAPT helps students decide which credit mathematics course to take first. This is an online test that students should take before orientation and advisement.
