Scheduled for Review
1. All bachelor's degree candidates must successfully complete all remedial requirements before earning 30 credits at Fort Lewis College in courses numbered 100 and above.
Reason for Policy
1. State Mandate: Developmental Policy (Section I) requires, among other things, that all state-supported institutions of higher education "shall ensure that developmental students who place into college-level English and Mathematics courses with SAI, or place into non-college level developmental education, complete the sequent college level English and Mathematics course(s) required of their programs within the student's first 30 semester credits."
2. State Mandate: Supplemental Academic Instruction (Section I, Part W) requires institutions to require "students placed into SAI complete their SAI requirements by the time the student completes thirty college-level credit hours" (5.01.04).

Consequences for Not Following Policy

Bachelor's Degree Candidate: Undergraduate students pursuing their first bachelor's degree and post-baccalaureate students pursuing a second or subsequent, non-duplicative, bachelor's degree who are attending less than half time, half time, three quarters time, or full time.
