[TACRAO] Listserv Required Suspension Course for Dual Credit

Good morning, Britt:

I am curious as to how-

                This course is offered (online/hybrid/traditional) and the length of the course (full semester/part of term)

If students are allowed to take this course concurrently with other courses in their returning semester or are only allowed registration in this course

How this course is set up in your SIS so that it is not factored in with Financial Aid and so that it is/is not indicated as part of  a student's degree plan

I concur that dual credit students must adhere to all rules and regulations. As for the verbiage you cited from SB 1091, I believe that is concerning courses that are awarded credit at both the institution and at the high school. Thus, a student's enrollment in RISE 0300 would not necessarily be classified as "dual credit".

I hope this perspective is useful.

Hello, all.

Our general academic policy requires students who are returning from academic suspension to enroll in RISE 0300, an academic support course in their first term of re-enrollment. As we are all aware, SB 1091 from the 85th leg. places certain limitations on dual credit offerings with language like:

A course offered for joint high school and junior college credit under this section must be:

(1)   in the core curriculum of the public junior college;
(2) a career and technical education course; or
(3) a foreign language course.

I am of the opinion that dual credit students must comply with ALL general academic policies and this course is not an issue because 1. We are not submitting this course for formula funding; and 2. It's not technically a joint course offered-it is a course required for their continued enrollment at our institution. What is the overall feeling of this group on this topic?

Thanks in advance for your consideration!
