When, in the judgment of the instructor, a student lacks the skills to complete a developmental course successfully, the following procedures should be used:
- The instructor should identify such students and realistically advise them of their progress and future chances of successfully completing the course.
- The instructor should make an appointment for the student to see a counselor or advisor.
Prior to the student/counselor conference, the instructor and counselor should meet and discuss the student’s case.
The counselor or advisor, when meeting with the student, should be prepared to discuss:
- alternate curricular programs not requiring the student to complete the developmental course, and/or
- alternate educational opportunities in our service region should none exist at PDCCC.
