IDS-0001.2: GATEWAY COURSE COMPLETION

Student Achievement Standard II: Gateway Course completion - Institutional target = 72%

Gateway Courses: Gateway courses are courses designed to matriculate students into the General Education (GenEd) group of courses. All students earning a degree or certificate must complete GenEd requirements before fulfilling program requirements. The Gateway courses are ENG 150 and 151 and Math 151, or for students enrolled as ICT majors, Math 155.

Standard II is the percentage of students who complete Gateway Courses with a C or better divided by the total number of students enrolled in these courses per semester. This standard is divided into three parts with individual targets. The overall target above is not necessarily the average of the three independent targets below.  All targets are the result of a consensus by the institution.

  • % of students who Successfully complete a Gateway English Reading with a Grade "C" or better (ENG 150): Target = 73%
  • % of students who Successfully complete a Gateway English Writing with a "C" or better (ENG 151): Target = 72%
  • % of students who Successfully complete a Gateway Math with a "C" or better (Math 151/155): Target = 63%
