Learning Support Courses

It is required that Learning Support students meet each term with an academic advisor for advice regarding course selection. For this reason, an advisement hold is placed on each student’s record each term. The hold is lifted after the student has passed the course and no longer in co-requisite courses. Here are the co-requisite courses offered:

  • English – ENGL 0999 (Support for ENGL Composition) taken with ENGL 1101
  • Non-STEM Majors – MATH 0997 (Support for Quantitative Reasoning) taken with Math 1001
  • STEM Majors – MATH 0999 (Support for College Algebra) taken with MATH 1111

Learning Support Placement courses do not count towards degree requirements or a student’s GPA at East Georgia State College. They are, however, used to calculate a GPA for HOPE, Pell and other financial aid awards, and the courses and grades earned appear on a college transcript. Learning Support Placement courses are graded using the same system as other East Georgia State courses.

Please see the Catalog for more information on Learning Support courses.
