Funded by OSRHE in Fall 2004 for implementation in Fall 2005
Faculty members enter information about students who have attendance
problems and/or performance problems
Communications are sent to students based on level and type of comment
(email, letter, telephone, visit)
In Fall 2006, university placement scores in math and English were
reviewed and updated to align with the guidelines from Accuplacer and
ACT
As a result of this review, a new Pre-Algebra course was developed to
accommodate those students entering the university with the greatest
deficiencies in mathematics.

Implemented Fall 2009
Students enrolled in pair courses took both remedial classes with the
same cohort of students and stayed in the same room in back to back
sessions for the classes
Success of the initiative was measured by the percent of A, B, and C’s
earned as well as retention rates of students enrolled in paired courses
Paired courses in mathematics and English were not offered after Spring
2011.
Started in Fall 2010 for all students enrolled in sixteen week classes at
the remedial and 1000-level
Midterm grades are used for counseling purposes and are not recorded
on the permanent record of any student
