Advising Support from UMAC
In addition to completing the core curriculum requirements, major requirements, and minor requirements, each student under the semester catalog must also satisfy the following:
All students must demonstrate
knowledge of United States History, Georgia History, the United States
Constitution, and the Georgia Constitution as required by
All students pursuing a baccalaureate degree must complete three courses in Physical Education. The requirement consists of the 3 hour Wellness course (WELL 1000) (NOTE: beginning Fall 2011, WELL1000 will carry 2 credit hours), and two 1 hour activity courses (WELL _ _ _ _) selected from the physical education curriculum. (ASU Nursing students may satisfy the WELL1000 requirement within their degree program.)
For students under the semester catalog, there are no waivers for the PE requirements. Students who are physically unable to participate in regular WELL courses will be allowed to complete their PE requirement with specially adapted courses.
All undergraduates must demonstrate proficiency in reading and writing skills by passing both parts of the Regentsí Test. The exam is administered each term and students are notified in their Pipeline email when they must take the test. (Usually, there is an alert posted early in the term, followed by specific test information near midterm. Testing center has lists about 2 weeks prior to Regents' test dates.) Taking the Regents' is considered an excused absence from class. Students who fail to take the test will have a registration hold placed on their records and must speak with a designated representative of the Vice President for Academic Affairs in Student Records (Payne Hall). Usually, a first "no show" results in a student signing a promise to take the test at the next opportunity while a second occurrence results in suspension.
Students who fail one or both parts of the Regentsí Test will be required to sign up for ENGL1101 or 1102 if they have not satisfactorily completed these courses or RGTR0198 and/or RGTR0199 if they have completed these courses (students who have earned 75 hours of credit or more must take RGTR0198 and/or RGTR0199 whether or not they have completed ENGL1101 or 1102).
Students required to take ENGL1101, 1102, RGTR0198 and/or RGTR0199 may not take an overload or withdraw from class. Students withdrawing from or being withdrawn from these classes will be prohibited from taking the Regentsí Test that term and will be ineligible to register for the following term.
Appeals of the requirement to remediate should be made in writing to the Vice President for Academic Affairs.
