Of the 257 total developmental education courses offered in the FCS, the number of developmental education course offerings at FCS institutions range from 14 to 4. From the courses identified, it appears that compressed and modularized strategies are the most commonly offered. • OPPAGA is contacting FCS institutions about developmental education implementation. They have inquired specifically about requiring Intermediate Algebra (MAT 1033) for Mathematics for Liberal Arts I and II (MGF 1106, 1107). General Education Core Courses • General Education Core Course Requirements must be implemented in fall 2015 • Chief academic officers are being surveyed for an implementation status check • Included in the survey is a question about whether the General Education Core Course Requirement should apply to the Associate in Science degree Credit for Online Courses (1004.0961) Beginning in the 2015-2016 school year, the State Board of Education shall adopt rules and the Board of Governors shall adopt regulations that enable students to earn academic credit for online courses, including massive open online courses, before initial enrollment at a postsecondary institution.

Baccalaureate Programs • Division Program Review – The division is working on a program review of the baccalaureate programs offered in the FCS. A survey was sent to your chief academic officers and the division has compiled all responses for all 24 FCS institutions approved to offer baccalaureates. Information received from the survey will be built in to the program review as will information taken from your annual baccalaureate accountability reports. The program review will also include the most recent student performance and outcomes data we have available. • Early Notification System with Board of Governors - The division is working with the Board of Governors on the development of an early notification system for FCS and SUS to engage in collaborative and collegial discussion before baccalaureate programs are approved. More information will be shared later this fall.
