Darton State College Policies and Procedures
Acceptance and Admissions Status
After all admissions requirements have been satisfied, the applicant, if determined eligible for admission, will be accepted for enrollment and assigned to one of the following student classification categories:
- UNCONDITIONAL ENROLLMENT into the credit transfer programs or credit career programs. Certain specialized programs have additional admissions requirements to be met, and admission to the College does not imply acceptance to these programs. Within the classification of unconditional enrollment, a student will be further classified as freshman, sophomore, joint enrollment, transient, irregular, or audit.
- CONDITIONAL ENROLLMENT into Learning Support. Those students COMPASS test scores or comparable College Placement Examination scores indicate an academic deficiency in one or more of the areas tested are granted conditional acceptance and are required to remove all deficiencies prior to being admitted unconditionally. A student is allowed three attempts in each deficiency area. Scores below 74 in Reading, below 60 English and below 37 in Algebra on the COMPASS test will require one or more Learning Support courses in a given deficiency area. Students requiring remediation must enroll in these courses first each semester before enrolling in any credit work. Students needing to satisfy CPC Math requirements may do by satisfactory completion of MATH 0099.
- PROVISIONAL ENROLLMENT is granted to those students whose program of study requires the College Preparatory Curriculum and who are deficient in one or more areas of this curriculum. All deficiencies must be removed by the time the student earns 18 semester credit hours. Courses taken to meet deficiency requirements will not count toward the student's degree requirements and must be completed within the first eighteen hours of college work. Science deficiencies may be removed by completing either BIOL 1110 or CHEM 1151; social science deficiencies may be removed by completing one of the following: HIST 1111 or HIST 1112, HIST 2111 or HIST 2112; foreign language deficiencies may be removed by completing FREN 1001, SPAN 1001, JAPN 1001 or GERM 1001.
- TEMPORARY ENROLLMENT is granted to applicant who cannot submit all admissions material prior to the printed deadlines. Such acceptance will permit the student enrollment pending receipt of the missing information. No credits may be recorded or grades released to students attending under this category until the student's admission file is complete.
