Learning Support Outcomes Policy


Learning Support courses are offered at Lanier Technical College in English, Mathematics, and Reading for the purpose of helping students achieve the basic skills required to be successful in diploma and degree programs.


Learning Support courses include a college proficiency test. Learning Support students must earn a grade of C or higher on the coursework and pass this test with a grade of 70% or higher in order to advance to the next level of Learning Support or to credit courses.


ENG 097 student Joe has an average of 78 for all course work and a grade of 62 on the college proficiency test. Since a score of 70 or higher is required to pass the course, the instructor turns in a grade of D for the course. The student registration system (BANNER) blocks Joe's ability to register for ENG 098. Thus Joe must repeat ENG 097.
