Background and Charge

In the wake of the elimination of remedial courses and placement tests (ELM and EPT), CSUCI must determine how to ensure that incoming students, both first-time freshmen and transfers, are appropriately identified, placed into critical courses and supported to meet the high standards of academic achievement.

The Academic Placement and Support Subcommittee is charged with identifying three or four steps CSUCI needs to implement or pilot in spring 2018 to move forward to achieve the goal of meeting students’ needs while also maintaining high academic standards.
